Songs: Not Yet

notes / gigs / releases

Like a poker through the butter
Every time your name is uttered
I melt

Like a drunk when streets are wet
The very first time our eyes met
I fell

Like a man without a pension
Every time your name is mentioned
I get nervous for the future

Or the owner of a boutique
Who is dazzled by your beauty
What I've got is bound to suit you

Like a band who've joined myspace
I'm about three years too late
To think that you could be my friend

But like a grandma scared of flying
I'll just have to keep on trying
If I'm to see you again

Like a poker player bluffing
It looks like I'm doing nothing
But my brain is at full stretch

And like a minor left wing faction
One day I'll spring into action
Just not yet

This started off with the first verse thinking about maybe being something else, but it turns out i spent SO MUCH of my early adulthood PINING GENERALLY that writing a song about not being able to do anything is pretty much my default position.

The bit about a band just now getting on to myspace is something i've been meaning to use for AGES, the bit about a Grandma probably got in there because my Mum's just rung to tell me I'm an uncle again!
