my heart beats so fast 20090823

Uploaded .

When I tweeted about maybe doing an Irish rap tonight, I wasn’t actually serious (though it has been on my todo list for a few years).

But I took a walk, and the idea of going for it stuck in my head. So I started developing it on the walk and got the first verse and first chorus completed (so if you saw someone mumbling to themselves like a mad person, that was me!).

So here’s the more complete idea. Though it ended up turning out way more like spoken word than rap. And complete with placeholder percussion!

And I realize that it should’ve been petrol, but petrol doesn’t half-rhyme with fast.

My heart beats so fast
And I’m running out of gas
I can’t say what I wanted to say
But what does it matter anyway

There’s an aching in me heart
And it’s tearing me apart
If I could only find a way
Then this is what I’d say

I love ya more than chocolate
More than pizza, more than carbs
And if you’d be mine forever
Well then

I’d never eat another twinkie
Another hoho, another piece of pie
Cause you’d be all I need baby
And that’s no lie

I’d tell you if I weren’t such a coward
I really really would
There’s so much I want to say to you
If only I could

And time it is a wasting
So I better move me arse
Because we have to get married first
Before we can get a divorce

Still I love you like me brother
The one I want to kiss
I shouldn’t admit that so freely
Hey, this frankness is a gift

But maybe I’ll just text ya
And see what transpires

Cause baby that’s the only way
That you’ll hear about me desires
