The Death of Gatsby


Ah, the spectrum of things we have all done in our lives thanks to our under par education. This is a song I wrote in my freshman year of high school. The date on the file was the 19th of May in 1995. How true that is I can only speculate, it’s probably not that far off.

I had a group project based on the novel “The Great Gatsby” by F. Scott Fitzgerald and we each had to write a song. I do recall my English teacher commenting on how much he liked the work. Well, you can’t get the full version by reading it, but tell me what you think.


The death of Gatsby

you wanted it all,
but you’re too late
you wanted it all,
your life’s carved in slate   
you wanted it all
so you had to fall
and that’s not great
now the water runs red
in your estate  
a bullet sealed your-ur fate
 
you had it all you wanted more
you had it all and you know the score

you wanted more
and you took it
but it wasn't enough
you had it all
and you let it rot
you took from them
and they tore you apart
and now it’s over

you had it all you wanted more
you had it all and you know the score

you wanted it all
so you had to fall
and that's not great
now the water runs red
in your estate
a bullet sealed your-ur fate

you had it all you wanted more
you had it all and you know the score

you had it all
and you let it rot
you took from them
and they tore you apart
and now it’s over

you had it all you wanted more
you had it all and you know the score

you wanted it all
so you had to fall
and that's not great
now the water runs red
on your estate
a bullet sealed your-ur fate

you had it all and you let it rot
you took from them
and they tore you apart
and now it’s over
ooooh now it’s over
