Liner Notes

This is another stab at writing lyrics, only my 2nd effort ever. Somehow the FAWM concept got me going and I stopped worrying about polished, perfected tunes and just started putting out this cheesy cr@p... not sure if that’s a good or bad thing.

Anyway, this bluesy jam was performed with my buddies Andy Fuller (drums) and Jeff Flick (bass) from the Spinal Tap inspired band ToEleven, we never intended to share the song in this raw format (and perhaps Andy and Jeff will be PO’ed at me for doing it), but I just had so much fun with it I had to add vocals and share it with you all.

Lyrics

Some people go ‘round using those 4 letter words
Most indiscriminately
Now I can’t throw stones, I use those same words myself
Almost exclusively

Funny thing is the worst of those 4 letter words
Lurks so innocently
Underneath a mask of care and benevolency
This word will be the end of me

I’m talking ‘bout Love
That’s right.
The word is LOVE
So simple; yet lethal.
Love.
Talkin’ ‘bout love.

Now you may ask what does this song say about me?
Am I bitter or just angry?
Well despite my doubts and fears and insecurities
I’ll keep on tryin’ ‘til it kills me
