I am diagnosed ADHD, but my boyfriend doesn't believe that at all. I wrote this song very recently. I think I start writing many of my songs in the shower or washing the dishes. I can't remember where this one started. I think my mind was in the gutter at any rate. Enjoy!


Verse 1
Like a record playing in slow motion
I hear your voice come slow and deep.
I'm afraid to interrupt the flow and let the words seep in.
I'll take my chances, stealing glances,
hoping for romance before the night is through.
Why can't I listen to you?
Searching your face as something to do.
The words I hear disappear before they get on through.
I hate to ask you to repeat your question,
but of what I heard I cannot even mention.
I need to get out of here and make my message clear.
I need you alone my dear.
Verse 2
Have I just been daydreaming too much today?
My scattered brain has managed to get away.
I've tried all the tried and true ways of paying attention.
I'll make my advances, ignoring your stances,
hoping this dance will turn you on.
Verse 3
I still remember getting you alone that day.
It didn't take much for me to get my way.
I'm sorry I want to hurry things along and be done with this song.
I'll take my chances, stealing glances,
hoping for romance before the night is through.

I started writing music quite late into my senior year of college. Too late to major in it, but my classical training in piano comes out in my songs. I write mostly love songs and funny songs about my boyfriend's dog.
