adventures in dysthymia

Thursday, February 14, 2008

I must've been lying when I said I wouldn't do any romantical type stuff today, 'cause here's a song I just wrote. Well, as with a lot of the stuff I've been posting lately, it was already partly written and I finished it.

JUST A FRIEND

I’ve been your pal for years,
Listened to your troubles,
Shared each of your dreams,
Never burst your bubbles.
I’d give the world to win you
But it seems in the end
There’s always someone else
And I stay just a friend.

I know a friend in need
Is a friend indeed,
But I think you’ll never know
How I need you and so...

Tell me all those secrets,
The new guy in your life,
The plans you make together,
How it all ends in strife.
My heart has been long broken,
Too long to ever mend,
Yes, I’d give the world to win you
But I stay just a friend.

BTW, I worked up a complete tune and chords for the 'Florida' song last night and have a setting pretty well in progress for 'Dawn.' Steve's been a busy buzzy bee.
