In the midst of yearning for someone who doesn’t feel the same about you, who of us hasn’t wished that they’d have played it a bit cooler? Stayed aloof. Given less. Kept your stock high in the eyes of someone you wish would love you back? Good luck with that.
What does it mean that the trapeze bracket of my 50 year-old guitar broke right after recording this track?
Here’s a listing for the entire collection of my “Singles Series” blog posts.
Written with Shelly Peiken.
u keep that saying you’ll call but
I’m not even on your shortlist
If I told you you’d ignore me..this I know
The truth is that I’m petrified
You’re gonna go and pass me by
And drag my poor heart with you when you go
I spend too much time
All in love’s not fair
Shoulda seen signs
So many signs
Sayin that we never had a prayer
I spend all my time
building those castles in the air
Come to the conclusion
It’s better not to care
I’d make every day your birthday
And sing you songs on Sunday
And cook romantic dinners by the sea
If you’d only put those books down
Stop telling me the world’s round
Lift your eyes and notice me
Then I’d be someone who can flip a heart switch
Turn it on and turn it off so easy
Someone who can resist the urge
To jump in when he feels it so completely
Well I guess I’ll let you go
It’s getting late and you have no idea
I don’t wanna go through this again
Maybe we’re just better off as friends
