Topic: "Broken Cover" Based On Graham's Phrase
It's your old half-song writing buddy, me!
When our friend Mazzy did her song "Broken" for us on SoundCloud, our friend Grah1 ("Gray'one" - finally GOT it ) did his own version and called it Broken Cover, as in a cover of Mazzy's tune.
But I, as I usually do, saw it and read it differently, so here's the beginnings/snatches of a tune as seen through the eyes of a 15 year old high school kid.
I try and try just to stay out of her way
But today she saw me and I didn't know what to say
She's so pretty and oh so cool
But she's 17 and almost out of school
And here I'll be just a 15 year old guy
Afraid to tell her that I love her and afraid to even try
I gotta break my cover! Can't let her get away
Break my cover! But I don't know what to say
I'm a loner and I'm lonely and I'll always be that way
If I don't break break my cover!
Today I saw her and I tried to walk up close
But Jimmy saw her first, and man that really blows
I saw she caught my eye and then gave me a smile
For a smile like that I'd run a hundred miles.
This afternoon I saw her
I'm glad I broke my cover
So that's the end chorus up there: (I'm glad I......)
and that's where my mind has stopped or my meds are failing me, I don't know which. Care to help me out? As always, you'l get co-writing credit. Can't take it with ya', right?
Thanks for any help
