AJ Rafael Releases New Song – ‘(500) Days’

AJ Rafael’s got a brand new track to share and it’s called ‘(500) Days’. You can probably already guess what inspired the song from the title. The video quality is so friggn crisp here, I’m loving it. Personally I’m digging the writing but I think I need to let the melody grow on me.  Perhaps I should actually see the movie, maybe then I’d connect with the song more haha. Hopefully this is the first of many new songs to come!

this song was inspired heavily by the movie “(500) Days of Summer”. this is the first song i’ve written since “When We Say (Juicebox)”! so i was so excited to finally put this up. hope you enjoy the nods to the movie within my lyrics. =)

Lyrics after the break.

(500) Days – AJ Rafael
started off grand then ended in ruins
thought you were the one you never knew what we were doin’
you didnt know when to stop all of your games
and you left me here, left me without any shame

so the truth came out you couldnt promise me the love that i was pouring out for you
and when you went away
couldn’t get you out of my mind oh i
was broken down for you

500 days i know it wasn’t the best but i won’t ever forget no i won’t ever forget
500 days i know it wasn’t the best but i won’t ever regret no i won’t ever forget you

i gotta be frank– i can’t imagine me with anyone other than you
had me feelin like my dreams came true

you made me feel good
like no one else existed
like summer was here everyday of the year
now its just my wishful thinkin

so the truth came out you promised someone else the love that i was pouring out for you
when you went away
couldn’t get you out of my mind oh i
was broken down for you

there is a light and it never goes out
and there is a promise and i don’t mean to scream and shout
but there is a fog and it’s blocking that light
gotta let you go, no use in fighting this fight
