Slight of Hand

Currently writing a solo original album, mainly just for me, I don't expect it to do very well but want to start recording in the New Year, I am a sod for losing my lyrics so I am just going to leave them here. I will begin each by saying briefly what it is about. I am not sure this is going to be the exact track order.

This was written for my ex partner, to whom I have two delightful ginger terrorists.  The song is about two years old and the mood irrelevant to me today.

You look so good Naked, I could almost cry.

More than appealing, or easy on the eye.

You exercise power, like only you can,

So you put me on my knees again.

Well I don’t even mind, I don’t care at all.

I’m just waiting for the dice to fall.

You don’t seem to run, cos you’re learning to crawl.

 

(Chorus)

And I don’t need a friend, who listens to me when I’m done,

And I don’t need a friend, who’ll try to tell me when I’m wrong

I don’t need a friend, who’ll try to justify who I am,

Cos I know who I am,

So I don’t need a friend

 

So burning in anger, is everything you know.

Though I writhe under your skin, you don’t let it show.

You exercise vengeance, with a slight of hand.

But I’m right back on my feet again.

Well you don’t seem to mind, no you don’t care at all,

You’re just waiting for the dice to fall.

And I’m dying to run, whilst you force me to crawl.

 

(Chorus)

And I don’t need a friend, who listens to me when I’m done,

And I don’t need a friend, who’ll try to tell me when I’m wrong

I don’t need a friend, who’ll try to justify who I am,

Cos I know who I am,

So I don’t need a friend

 

(middle eight)

I’ve gone from having keys to your front door,

To seeing that I’m not worth fighting for,

Finally becoming your back up plan,

At least I know where I stand

 

(Chorus)

And I don’t need a friend, who listens to me when I’m done,

And I don’t need a friend, who’ll try to tell me when I’m wrong

I don’t need a friend, who’ll try to justify who I am,

Cos I know who I am,

So I don’t need a friend

The End
