I Like This Girl

New original from me, hot off the old wotsit.

When it was half written yesterday, I was considering binning it as a throwaway exercise - I do that quite often. But I played the songwriting demo to someone else and, er, apparently I should finish it…

So here it is finished. Hope they don’t think the demo was better…

My wife hasn’t heard it yet. The “today” in the lyric isn’t until Friday (two day’s time). With a bit of luck I’m not in trouble… I’ll do some washing-up and get the hoover out soon.

Now, where’s all the other crap I’ve binned? lol


I Like This Girl - A A J Russe

I like
I like this girl

I just came along tell you
What everybody ought to know
When I’m being silly
When I tell you that you’re fine
You ought to know

You might think I’m crazy
You might be concerned about my health
I might try to make you dream
But I will always dream of someone else

She’s picking up the pieces
Sweeping up the mess that is my life
Let’s pour another glass
I want to tell you now about my wife

She’s the one who makes it easy
The one who promised to be mine
And she’s the one who understands
That I am silly all the time

When the sun is shining
I have to hide inside
But she don’t care
She’s so pretty in her garden
I can see her now
But she’s not there

She gets so very tired
So I carry her to bed and come down here
That’s when I sing to you
And all I give to you is what I fear

She’s the one who makes it easy
The one I couldn’t ever leave
And she’s the one who understands
That all I do is make believe

I’m sitting on own
Waiting for a call from far away
I feel so very foolish
But that’s alright
She’s coming home today

I like
I like this girl

@guest :) don't let that inner puppy get sunburned. Some of what you've been doing yourself recently went into the ability to create this one. And I nearly even posted the songwriting demo!!! :0
