Story behind the song
A decision to write a song based not on my own personality or experiences, but from the P.O.V. of a complete chauvanist pig (hope that's the opposite of me!), starting off as a seemingly touching love song. A BIG "I'm Huge" to Matt for making a legible arrangement from cryptic scribblings/made-up rhythmic shorthand and hastily (possibly even drunkenly) made versions done on a 1974 Sears cassette recorder. Or something really mono.
Lyrics
You sighed your own sweet song tonight; the "hall" was in my head. You whispered low, I heard your eyes -- so silent then, to my surprise... "Promise me the nighttime lasts," you breathed into my ear. Promised all, you misconceived; in the utter end, I deceived... I gotta be frank, I'll make sure your heart burns, and that thoughts of me are dancing in your head. I gotta give voice to these mute considera- tions and ideas of entertaining you in bed... Don't expect any thoughtful words or sensitive remarks; I'll respect you (NOT!) for who you are, but for what you do to me in the dark. I can openly say that I'm not attuned, to any skittish romantic play. Driven to pure acts of lust by the prospect of an easy lay... I gotta be blunt: I'll make you think ungodly thoughts, while I'm prayin' for some Providential luck. I'll be straight-up: I'll make sure your soul pounds with the rhythm of that long-awaited--OW! ----- I gotta be frank, I'll make sure your heart burns, and that thoughts of me are dancing in your head. Yeah, that thoughts of me are dancing in your head. Yeah, I'll make sure that thoughts of me dance in your head!
