Sweet Nothings

Uploaded .

I am happy to post this first rough version of a song I wrote yesterday after a really long creative drought. It cracked me up because I’d woken up with this idea on my mind first thing after watching a stupid TV show the night before where a guy told 3 different women he was in love with them. So the idea of someone telling you “sweet nothings in your ears” brought a different meaning to my mind. The recording is rough, but I hope you enjoy this early version!

Sweet Nothings

You used to say I love you
Each morning when we’d get up
I’d smile at you and we’d have a laugh
Before the day got tough

But since you started staying out
Shooting whiskey with your beer
I wonder if you’re playing games
And your love has left me here

Our love was pretty special
Little things could make you smile
We’d whisper sweet dreams in the night
Our future went on for miles

But since you stopped coming home
Working late most every night
I wonder if your words are true
And should I put up a fight

Stop whispering your sweet nothing’s in my ear
If you’re lying to me
My heart don’t want to hear
Each time you say I love you
It just makes my heart feel blue
Don’t whisper your sweet nothings in my ear
(only sung on last chorus)
Each time you say I love you
You’re telling me our love is through
Don’t whisper your sweet nothings in my ear

If I could trust that you were true
I’d hold out my open arms
But I just found the proof
You’ve fallen to another’s charms

Her man just called and told me
All the things he said he knew
I guess its time for me to choose
If you and I are through

REPEAT CHORUS including final phrase
