Holding Pattern

My 7th song for the 2022 RPM challenge. This one is a bit more pensive and slow moving. I always love adding harmony. I was thinking of Bjork (who I love) when I wrote it. I included some flute so my sister can play along next time we jam. Thanks to anyone who is listening out there :)

You run for shelter
and you left it all behind
It’s what you wanted (did you)
to take you off my mind

but you hold me
like I never knew
and you hold me
when I am torn in two

So give me shelter
this storm is raging fast
my heart runs wild with you
but this plane has almost crashed

but you hold me
like I never knew
and you hold me
when I am torn in two

my plane it hovers spins around
but I fear I’m getting nowhere
I nose dive through you on the ground
you really got the best of me
yeah, you really got the best of me
you really got the best of me

but you hold me
like I never knew
and you hold me
when I’m torn in two
but you hold me
like I never knew
and you hold me
when I’m torn in two
and you hold me
and you hold me

Smooth and silky. I feel compelled to finish listening to the whole album as it is absolutely ear candy. Wonderful work:)

Ohhhh, this I like a lot! I hear the Bjork, but I'm also getting a lot of a Sade vibe during the verse, which is a peanut butter and chocolate combination that I would have never expected. I want more!

Sultry ... Another excellent song, especially considering that you are writing and recording 1 every 2 days. Number 7? I think I've missed a couple. I'll have to go back and look.
