Additional Info:
It's 1736 on Thursday the 26th of April, 2018.
I just finished walking with Sharyn and Roger. Roger just came back from the vet and had his teeth fixed.
We have our usual Parralox vocals recording session tonight, and yet again I am writing a song at the last minute before Louise arrives.
The basis for this song was due to me looking at the Parralox website and realising that we don't have many songs that start with the letter G.
So I looked up the names of some Blake's 7 episodes and Gambit seemed to fit.
The song is going to be about unrequited love. Basically when you fall for someone who doesn't really feel the same way, and the good/bad feelings that arise as a consequence.
Maybe I should have called the song Consequences.
Dammit :)
