album cover

Some jazzy, bluesy chords and a couple of lines of lyrics assaulted me as I was finishing 'I wish', so I took a detour and recorded this instead. I sequenced tremeloed Rhodes (I like that sound), acoustic bass (and that one too), strings, and some ethereal sounds onto an AMG 'Dance Diffusion' drum loop; Rebecca's sax solo completes the backing track, with a single lead vocal on top. It was written and recorded in two and a half days, mid April 2006.
Lyrics
Verse 1
Your eyes -
They look right through me
Since you returned.
Your smile -
Is complimentary
And not something I've earned.
I see you but you're not here,
I touch you but it's clear:
You respond as in a dream,
Oh I wish, I wish I could be him.

Verse 2
Your mind -
Has no time for me,
It's under his spell.
Your heart -
Is given to him,
I hold only the shell.
Passion flows through you,
But I lie broken on the rocks:
You respond as in a dream,
Oh I wish, I wish I could be him.

Verse 3
Sax solo

Would you give up your whole world for him
With so little in return?
You respond as in a dream,
Oh I wish, I wish I could be him.
