Song #38: Known

known.jpg

"Known" is a simple little song juxtaposing the desire to be loved with the desire to give love. Because of its atypical form you could maybe say it's more of a short tone poem than a pop song.

LYRICS:

to be known

to be loved

to be cherished

to be witnessed

to have someone

that knows your soul

knows your weakness

knows your deepness

to be understood

to know you count

to be lost

and then be found

to be held close

to be let go

to be known

to be the one that knows

 

to be love

and to cherish

and to witness

to have someone

whose mind you blow

despite their weakness

and from your deepness

to understand

to show they count

and when they're lost

search 'till they're found

to know when to hold

when to let go

to be the one that knows

Song #32: Time of Day

This week's song is more of a style experiment than anything. I very much enjoy listening to a lot of Oldies and classic R&B and so I thought I'd enjoy writing my own modern spin on those genres. There's nothing profound in the least about these lyrics but that too was keeping in form (most of those old songs are really simple). This one's just for fun.

LYRICS:

You walk by me everyday

walking in your freedom

And I can't help but imagine the day

you give me all your lovin'

 

I can't help it I'm falling for you

Dream of all the crazy things we would do

But you don't even give me the time of day

 

You move ways that drive a man wild,

But only give resistance

Tight pants, tight shirt, show off your style,

but keep 'em at a distance

 

I can't help it I'm falling for you

Give me one shot, you'll want me too

But you don't even give me the time of day

 

I sure hope you don't get pissed

But it's past time you know I exist

 

I can't help it I'm falling for you

Dream of all the naughty things we would do

But you don't even give me the time of day
