Song #32: Time of Day

tighshorts.jpg

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

Song #31: Alexandria

"Well behaved women seldom make history." [Laurel Thatcher Ulrich]

LYRICS:

You blaze ways with a smile on your face

And when we reach downtown you reach for the paint

Alexandria

 

The street musicians all know your name

And the gamble is certainly worth the game

I'm in love

 

They don't know where to look

She's straight up off the hook

We all just fall in love with Alexandria

She's irresisistable

She's got this certain pull

She'll burn this city down, Alexandria!

 

The town winds down, the lights start to fade

But you can't stop now, that's not how you're made

Alexandria

 

I once asked how she got this way

She just laughed and she walked away

I'm in love

Song #24: Ellipses

"It's so easy to think about love, to talk about love, to wish for love...
but it's not always easy to recognize love, even when we hold it...
in our hands." [Jaka]

LYRICS:

when words become ellipses

when knowing glances become kisses

you can't miss it

when all day long you listen

to dreams that say "you'll be his Mrs."

and oh the kisses

 

that's when you'll know

 

when you come home some evening

to find that love makes life worth living

are you kidding?

that's when you'll know

when you find that your guy

is quite unlike who came before

and in his presence you are not less, you are more

when you tell all your friends about him

and well up with pride because of who he is

it may be it

 

that's when you'll know

 

when words become ellipses

when knowing glances become kisses

you can't miss it

that's when you'll know
