WSP_0096_She Came Around

lyrics

on so many lonely nights I couldn't shake her face
so good and lovely, amplifying every ache
for so long I've long to hear her knocking at my door
but the man who couldn't get over her don't live here anymore

tempted don't even start to measure how I feel
but just one kiss would open up what I've worked so hard to heal
though the wounds, they are not fresh - I still feel the sting
plucking and pulling taunt the stitching like heartstrings

she came around looking for someone I used to be
her man left her for another just like she left me
she was seeking shelter but there's none to be found
when she came around I turned her down

thoughts of her, they still throw sparks - it's hard to deny
fireflies start dancing when she touches on my mind
where there's light there must be heat, though I miss her so
poke the fire you're bound to get burned, I best leave it alone

she came around looking for someone I used to be
her man left her for another just like she left me
she was seeking shelter but there's none to be found
when she came around I turned her down
I don't know why or how but I turned her down

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!
