Nearly forgot to post this one! (it’s been a busy week at work)

I was 24 when I wrote it. What more can I say?


No-one To Blame - A A J Russe

When I was young there was romance
Now as I get old there is none
The tentative joys of my childhood
Now everyone knows how it’s done
I’ll take the blame for your breakage
I’ll even replace the glass
But I won’t pay the price
For what you did in the past
I’ll try to be true to you baby
But I’ve got to be true to myself
If I don’t want to stay when you ask me
There’s no-one to blame but yourself

There’s no-one to blame for the things that you’ve done
No-one to blame but you
But if I can’t quite be an angel
I’d rather not be a fool

The days of spectacular feelings
Are gradually slipping away
The lure of an ear-biting climax
Is suddenly starting to pale
I haven’t the heart for the small talk
After the jumping is done
I just lie here waiting for the rise of the sun
The pictures they’re selling are useless
They’ve shown me my woman in red
The filth is all over the carpet
Why couldn’t it stay on the bed

There’s no-one to blame for the things you’ve done
No-one to blame but you
But if I can’t quite be an angel
I’d rather not be a fool
If I can’t quite be an angel
I’d rather not be a fool

What's really cool about these songs written long ago is that you are still able to remember the melody... I'm always having to remember my own music. I really like this one! Wise words of a twenty something... wiser that his years!

I think I dated this one. I like the guitar lick. The song really moves along well.
