I See Through You

Uploaded .

At last… I’ve managed to finish something.

This was written months ago. I was about to try recording it with one or two others when this year’s decorating started. With various buggered fingers, back muscles, etc, etc, I wasn’t actually able to play properly for a while. Then, when it was all ok again, I was enjoying just lying on the sofa in the transformed living room too much.

But here we are. An uplifting little ditty that the missus is very fond of. I was less so, initially, I was worried it was a bit of a dirge when I heard my early attempts… but it’s kinda grown on me (still think it’s a bit of a dirge!!).

NOW… I shall go and catch up on my listening to everyone else’s stuff - lots to catch up on. Many apologies for ignoring you all for a few months, I sort of went off music altogether for a bit… I almost felt like a “normal” human-being for a while there!!

I See Through You - A A J Russe

You lack nothing
Except some sense
When you barge into my room
With confidence
And you know your greatest asset
Is your tears
But do you really think I’ve wasted all of these years?
All of these years

I see through you

I heard you coming
But I stood still
And there’s nothing I have done
Against my will
If you can see me from over there
Please get wise
I can see you just as well
What a surprise
‘Cause I’ve got eyes

And I see through you

Great chord changes and build ups. Well done Andrew! ________________________________________ I had to go look up the word *"Dirge"*. I like hanging out with people who are smarter than me.

Pensive, maybe. But not dirgy. Just a little more voice in the mix please.
