All I Have To Do

Here’s the very latest from the broom-cupboard.

I wrote it one dark night over 23 years ago.

All I Have To Do - A A J Russe

There isn’t much time to get this out
You won’t hear me if I have to shout
I have to say there is no doubt
About what I have to do

I might not like all that you say
‘Cause you might change it every other day
I can’t go on if there’s no other way

All I have to do
Is trust you
All I have to do
Is trust you

If I knew how to pray
I might know now what to say
The smoothest thing I ever had
Is taken away

I might be yours but who can tell
Stand up straight but feel unwell
Your love simply puts me back in hell

But all I have to do
Is trust you
All I have to do
Is trust you

Help me to believe
I might trust you

"Records in small room with curtains closed while wife cowers in the next room with headphones on…" cracked me up! ha....sounds familiar!

Ok, grabbed me right away with that unexpected chord shift in the intro. I love your songwriting, man. The variety, the sonic palettes, the lyrics, the playing, the inventiveness, all of it really; it's such a pleasure to sit, listen, and lose myself in the song.

Andrew, Thank you for keeping up with me lately. I just spent three hours coming up with that one minute. It took me that long to think of something to say. Thanks for commenting. 82 degrees in Cowtown and time to take the puppies for a walk. Thanks again for listening and commenting.

Thanks for your comments on my latest... I agree with you... some things we’ve changed during this time would be best if we adopted them forever. I don’t think I can ever drive in bumper to bumper traffic ever again... virtual hugs to you and yours. Thanks for listening!!

I love the vibe on this - kinda Del Amitri meets 10cc!
