about

It’s always driven me nuts that I can find a document on my computer from years ago in seconds, but it takes me a hour to find the shoes I wore last week. A little lighthearted “What if…” song.

lyrics

If I had a digitized index
In a microchip inside my home
If I had a digitized index
That could find all the stuff I own
It wouldn’t take me an hour just to find my shoes
I could file away the junk that I never use
Nothing misplaced and nothing to lose
If I had a digitized index
Everything would be squeaky-clean, oh yeah
Everything would be squeaky-clean

If I had an undo-button
Plastered to the roof of my mouth
If I had an undo button
Whenever conversation ran south
I could take back the things that I said to you
The thoughtless deeds that made you so blue
Every word that I say would be shiny and true
If I had an undo-button
You and me would be peachy-keen, oh yeah
You and me would be peachy-keen

If I had a backup system
When my processor’s had enough
If I had a backup system
Whenever things got too tough
If could have me a meltdown in the pouring rain
I could hit “restart” and it would all be the same
There’d be nothing lost, and nothing gained
If I had a backup system
Everything would be so serene, oh yeah
Everything would be so serene

But I don’t have a digitized index
So I guess I’ll keep looking for clues
An I can’t find that undo-button
So I hope that you’ll forgive and forget
Still don’t have no backup system
So I’ll have to keep this ship afloat
And I guess I’ll muddle through somehow, oh yeah
I know I’ll muddle through somehow

about

Dylan Bell Toronto, Ontario

In a word... multifaceted. Toronto-based songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and producer. From a neo-classical choral opus to an unabashed rock song, I've probably written it... or at least working on it. I'm fortunate enough to make my work my play, touring across North America, Europe, and Asia. Visit me at www.dylanbell.ca ... more
