26th Failed Attempt

A song about the futility of trying to really express yourself…especially to someone you want to impress…

26th Failed Attempt:

When I sat down here tonight and I decided I would write
a love song to explain to you why I feel the way I do
all my words came out all wrong the first 25 times that I tried
and the papers all hit the floor before the ink had time to dry.

And I still don’t have it down the way I want for it to sound.
The melody is just alright but still I kind of like the tune.
No it’ll never sell a million, babe, but it’s the best that I can do
so here’s my 26th failed attempt to write a love song for you:

I love your hair
and I love your eyes.
Most of all I love myself
down between your thighs.
Everything about you
and everything that you do
just makes me fall repeatedly in love
with you…

SORRY TO COMMENT TWICE ON the same song....this is really great. One of those songs that has soul.
