lyrics

I don't want to fall in love
don't want to take flight
just want to fall in bed
with you tonight

let me lie upon your floor
a safe and distant shore
a fleeting sea of company
to keep your good ship warm

I don't want to be a star
to guide you great and far
just a dim and low 20 watt bulb
hanging where you are

solo I sail
on a thin and crooked rail
heavy with freight and baggage
dragging a ragged tail

I'm paying for my sins
and bucking up my chin
I aint too blind to divine
a sparkle in the din

I wear no mask or crown
there's no halo to be found
upon this head, hollow and bereft
of any holy gown

if we can't be the light
we can least try it on for size
get and reflect a comfy fit
wear it like a prize

I don't want to fall in love
don't want to take flight
just want to fall in bed
with you tonight

hush them lips, dim the switch
let's dissolve and slip
I don't want to be the man of your dreams
let me be your moonlight
if I can't be the man of your dreams
let me be your moonlight

Hi there. You can sign up for my mailing list here: eepurl.com/bcruFT

I post a song once a week on Tuesdays. If I've just finished a song I'll record a rough demo and put it up. Sometimes its live recordings or weird electro collages. I also make a video most weeks using public domain footage. Check it out!

Thanks for taking the time to check out my music!
