I’m So In Love (I Would Have Laughed Before): 52 Songs In 52 Weeks — Song #14

My fourteenth song in my series 52 Songs In 52 Weeks.  I hope you enjoy it.

When they said love was forever
I didn’t know you then
Now when they say love is forever
I’m so glad I let you in

Chorus
Oh now I’m so in love
But I would have laughed before
Oh I — I’m in love
If someone had asked before
Oh now I’m so in love
But I would have laughed before
Oh I — I’m in love
I would have laughed before

Now we build our love together
We keep our word, it grows within

Chorus
Oh now I’m so in love
But I would have laughed before
Oh I — I’m in love
If someone had asked before
Oh now I’m so in love
But I would have laughed before
Oh I — I’m in love
I would have laughed before

Aurora, You Call To Me: 52 Songs In 52 Weeks — Song #13

“Aurora, You Call To Me” is my thirteenth song in a series I call “52 Songs In 52 Weeks.” My goal is to write and record a new song every week for a year.  I wrote and recorded “Aurora” over the last week.  If you like it, please share it.

Lyrics

Aurora nights, northern dreams
When I’m away you stay with me

The way you are
Calls to me
You and I fit so perfectly

Chorus
Night passes quickly
Into dawn’s thieving hands
Your wine glass fills with sunlight
On the night stand

Your aura light shines out to sea
Beckons across the waves between

Your body, love, calls out to me
Though we should sleep
The need’s too deep

Chorus
Night passes quickly
Into dawn’s thieving hands
Your wine glass fills with sunlight
On the night stand

Oh, darlin’ my heart yearns for you
When we’re apart
When we’re apart
When we’re apart

Ask Her, After: 52 Songs in 52 Weeks #12

My goal is to write and record a song each week for a year.  “Ask Her, After” is the twelfth song in my songwriting series “52 Songs In 52 Weeks.”

Lyrics

Actor
Did you know you’re an actor, baby?
Oh, after
What are we after?
Ask her
Ask her

Chorus
They say she’s got a bleeding heart
Ain’t it a shame
Finding absolution
Isn’t some kind of game

Reminding herself
Yeah, she inked it on her sleeve
Whatever comes after
She’ll still believe

He asked her, oh God
Why did he ask her? Laughter
Disaster
He and she were a disaster
After
Ask her

Chorus
They say she’s got a bleeding heart
Ain’t it a shame
Finding absolution
Isn’t some kind of game

Reminding herself
Yeah, she inked it on her sleeve
Whatever comes after
She’ll still believe
She’ll still believe

Whatever comes after
She’ll still believe

Weave The Darkness Bright: 52 Songs In 52 Weeks (#11)

“Weave The Darkness Bright” is the eleventh song in my series “52 Songs In 52 Weeks.”  I wrote and recorded it on July 1, 2014.   I tried to leave a lot of space in this song.  It’s also got a string section.  If you like the song, please share it on your social site of choice.

Lyrics

She never wanted to grow old
He told her never to grow old

He never wanted to grow cold
She told him never let your heart grown cold
No.

Chorus
Yes, we leave
We leave tonight
And we’ll weave the darkness bright

Since we could be anywhere
We should go anywhere

Is all of life bought and sold?
Not all of it is bought with gold
No.

Chorus
Yes, we leave
We leave tonight
And we’ll weave the darkness bright

Devastated Hearts (Heal On The Dance Floor)

“Devastated Hearts (Heal On The Dance Floor)” is the tenth song in my songwriting series called “52 Songs In 52 Weeks.” Whew. Only 42 more to go. Isn’t that the meaning of life, the universe, and everything? 42? If you like the song, please share it on your favorite social media site.

Lyrics
Gravity ends its long oppression
Shadows and light break all the rules
On these wings born of depression
Breaking free from the traps
Of life and school

Clear our mind
With pulsing blood
Calling out a new beginning
Starting scared and pushing hard
Can’t help it now
Can’t stop from grinning

Chorus
Devastated hearts dance in rhythm
Devastated hearts heal on the dance floor
Devastated hearts dance in rhythm
Devastated hearts heal on the dance floor

Broadcast dreams
Shatter the dancers
Aching blues built hour by hour
Pundits talk but offer no answers
Shadows and light break all the rules

Chorus
Devastated hearts dance in rhythm
Devastated hearts heal on the dance floor
Devastated hearts dance in rhythm
Devastated hearts heal on the dance floor
Heal on the dancefloor

Solo

Chorus
Devastated hearts dance in rhythm
Devastated hearts heal on the dance floor
Devastated hearts dance in rhythm
Devastated hearts heal on the dance floor

Heal on the dance floor
Heal on the dance floor
Heal on the dance floor
Heal on the dance floor

What Am I Doing At A Time Like This? (Just Singing A Song)

“What Am I Doing At A Time Like This? (Just Singing A Song)” is the ninth demo in the blog series I call “52 Songs in 52 Weeks.” If you like it, please share the post on your favorite social media site.

Lyrics
Trouble mile deep
And eight miles long
And he’s singing a song

Sweeping up the floor
In a barbershop
And he’s singing a song

Chorus 1
Well…
He’s doing just what he can
Won’t you come along and lend him a hand?

She say what am I doing
At a time like this
Just singing a song

World is going crazy
Signs you just can’t miss
And I’m singing a song

Chorus 2
Well…
She’s doing just what she can
Won’t you come along and lend her a hand?

She talks and he listens
He talks and she listens
With an open heart

They can hear the kick drum beating
In the words they are repeating
Gonna do their part, gonna do it, yeah

Chorus 3
Well…
They’re doing just what they can
Won’t you come along and lend them a hand?

Bridge
Being there for one another
Is good enough to turn the tide
When we sing our songs together
Trouble’s not so deep and wide

Whatever has you hurtin’
Sing it out for certain
Don’t you keep it inside

If you feel the kick drum beating
Won’t you start repeating
I can do my part
I can do it, do it, yes

Chorus 4
Well…
You’re doing just what you can
I can come along and lend you a hand.

Chorus 5
Well…
We’re doing just what we can
Won’t you come along and lend us a hand?

Oh, what are we doing at a time like this just singing a song?

Summertime Ice Cream Sandwich Song

This is the eighth song in my series called “52 Songs In 52 Weeks.” If you like it, share in on your favorite social site. Thanks.

Lyrics
I was walking down the street just the other day
The kind with the big ditches on either side
It felt like it might rain

It was around three in the afternoon
I was barefoot
Walking on the asphalt, which was quite hot
But this was not unexpected
It was just part of the drill

So I was headed to the store
For an ice cream treat
I was torn between a banana and fudge bombstik and a classic ice cream sandwich

Mmm. What’ll it be? What’ll it be? What’ll it be?
