Make You Happy

I know you like a challenge
You make my heart race like a stallion
I would wear all your medallions
Make your arguments invalid
‘Cause I know you like the wild ones
I’ll make you forget all about them
Show you all the different styles of
Every little bit that I love

Baby I can make you happy
Give it to you most exactly
Baby I can make you happy
Show you everything you’re lacking

I know you may not believe me
And I know you don’t need me
I’ll have you begging, pleading
For me to stay when I am leaving
Even if I’m going down the block
Have you desperately ’round the clock
Wanting everything that I have got
Got you going so it never stops

Baby I can make you happy
Give it to you most exactly
Baby I can make you happy
Show you everything you’re lacking

Baby I know that you’re not used to
Good things happening
Why can’t you see everything you do
Leads you back to me?
And if you would let your heart be open
And speak of the thing we’ve left unspoken
Real love
It’s what we dream of

Baby I can make you happy
(Baby I can make you happy)
Give it to you most exactly
(If you would only have me)
Baby I can make you happy
(I know that love is everlasting)
Show you everything you’re lacking
(Baby don’t act like it’s a bad thing)
Baby I can make you happy
Like a dream that’s really happening
Baby I can make you happy
If only you’re willing to have me

Commentary:

This song actually was an attempt at a cleaner version of a very different song I had in mind. I won’t get into what the lyrics would have been for that alternate song, but I like this one. It’s risen to the top of the charts in my imagination. Thanks for reading.

I Believe in Love (inspired by ‘Wonder Woman’ (2017))

Never have I seen a
Face like yours before and
Never had I dreamed of
One I’d go to war for
I look in your eyes and
I can see the truth of
Everything in me and
Everything that you are

It’s not about deserve or
Who is good enough
I learned that from you and
I believe in love
The last words I heard I’ll
Cherish like your touch
I learned that from you and
I believe in love

Even when I’ve lost all
Faith in what could be, you
Still hold onto hope and
You inspire me
I’ll love you for all time
And your bravery
You showed me what true love is
By doing something

It’s not about deserve or
Who is good enough
I learned that from you and
I believe in love
The last words I heard I’ll
Cherish like your touch
I learned that from you and
I believe in love

I wish we
Had more time
You were once
By my side
Fighting for
Every life
You and I
Crystallized
You and those
Perfect eyes
I know you
Couldn’t lie
For the truth
Is that I’ve
Loved you for
My whole life
Even through
Centuries
We are still
Meant to be
There is no
Enemy
That can keep
You from me

It’s not about deserve or
Who is good enough
I learned that from you and
I believe in love
The last words I heard I’ll
Cherish like your touch
I learned that from you and
I believe in love

 

Commentary:

I suddenly remembered some of the music I’d toyed around with in my head, sort of slowing down the Wonder Woman theme from the 2017 film (originating with the Junkie XL/Hans Zimmer Batman v Superman soundtrack), and it occurred to me how beautiful it can sound if you soften it a bit. It easily becomes a love theme, if you can imagine it. I really do need to learn to play the piano someday.

I had this mental image of a scene sort of like from the 1978 Superman film, with that music playing and Diana and Steve flying through the air. I’d never given thought to putting words to it, but it hit me today that I could, so I gave it a try. Maybe I’m just in a DC Comics/DCEU mood lately, with Aquaman just coming out on Blu-ray/DVD/4K UHD/Digital (shameless free advertising, sorry about that). Plus I felt a little emotional today, so it was a matter of time before a song showed up. Thanks for reading.

A Lie Put To Music

I fall in love with you
Suddenly I’m a poet
I’ve given you my heart
You ran away and stole it
It’s not as if you’re moved
By anything I wrote then
I couldn’t get to you
Through all the things we’ve broken

It’s a lie put to music
So why even do it?
It really is quite useless
It’s a lie put to music
So why don’t we remove it?
Why put us through that?

You could be someone new
Or who I gave my life to
What does it matter who?
I’m just a guy you’ll lie to
No matter what I feel
I’ll never even say so
I can’t imagine real
When love is so painful

It’s a lie put to music
So why even do it?
It really is quite useless
It’s a lie put to music
So why don’t we remove it?
Why put us through that?

All these false songs
When love is wrong
The feeling’s so strong
But doesn’t belong
And it doesn’t take long
To make a man fall
And love crushes all
With its mad siren’s call

It’s a lie put to music
So why even do it?
It really is quite useless
A lie put to music
So why don’t we remove it?
Why put us through that?
A lie put to music
Isn’t an improvement
I haven’t met the truth yet
Or is it in this song?
Is it in this song?
Is it in this song?
Is it in this song?

Mathematics

There’s a zero
Point zero zero one four five
Chance
That you’d ever look my way
And the odds
Are too slim to compile
And it’s slowing down
My frame rate
All I’ve known
Is when I do the math
Subtraction
Is all I’ve ever had
And love
Finds new ways to divide
But could
You be the one I get to add?

Mathematics
Never was my thing
So I don’t know if
There even is a one
I’ve had it
With these kinds of dreams
Because they never
Add up the way I want

And the number
Of people I know
Is more than
The ones I’d care to trust
As the problems
Multiply by fives
All around me
In a rough kind of radius
I wonder if
You could become my prime
Because I’m sad
In ways I cannot sum
I wish
That you could become mine
Then you’d
Be divided by yourself and one

Mathematics
Never was my thing
So I don’t know if
There even is a one
I’ve had it
With these kinds of dreams
Because they never
Add up the way I want

And the shape
Of love is long forgotten
With it, too,
The calculus of lust
I’d find
Or measure the right angle
To approach
But I’m afraid I’d get too close
Miscalculating
Is the real danger
And hope
The least common thing I’ve known
Is there
A fraction of a chance
A tenth of a tenth
For a romance?
I’m tired
Of just being one half
So I figured
At least that I might ask

Mathematics
Never was my thing
So I don’t know if
There even is a one
I’ve had it
With these kinds of dreams
Because they never
Add up the way I want
It’s a game
That’s always zero sum
Being alone
Always feels like less than one

 

Commentary:

This isn’t about anyone in particular, I just had an idea.  Not nearly as nerdy as someone with actual math skills could have made it, but I tried.  I’m sure it’s been done before.  There hasn’t been much inspiration lately in the love category.  Not that I’d be looking for love or something.  The probabilities seem too unfavorable in that regard.  I’m still in a state of relationship limbo–can’t afford to get out, literally, but also experiencing none of the actual benefits of a relationship.  Anyway, I had a pleasant dream about meeting someone, and maybe it helped give me a good enough feeling to write this.  Thanks for reading.

It’s Not A Date

You
Wait for me
In a café downtown like
A mystery queen
And who
Would I be
To refuse to surround myself
With silly dreams
Of you
You and me
What can be?
We will see

I know it’s not late
And it’s not a date
But I just can’t wait
To hear what you’ll say
I know it’s not fate
And it’s not a date
But I just can’t wait
To see you today

Hope
Precious hope
I know better than to
But I just can’t handle it
Oh
If I could know
That it’s worth it to have you
That love’s not a battle
It’s home
Safe at home
The thought is heartwarming
But my heart still warns me
Of you
It won’t be
It’s not easy
To breathe

I know it’s not late
And it’s not a date
But I just can’t wait
To hear what you’ll say
I know it’s not fate
And it’s not a date
But I just can’t wait
To see you today

Hello
How are you?
I’m so pleased to meet you
And I can’t believe you would
Choose
To see me
Out of all of the people
That surely want to see you
I know
There aren’t words
That can end
All the hurts
And you
Don’t know me
And maybe
We won’t be
I don’t
Yet believe
Finding love
Is easy
And so
When you leave
Let it go
Forget me

And for my own sake
I hope it’s not a date
So why can’t I wait
To behold your face?
I’d pray for this day
But it’s not a date
And it’s not our fate
We’ll go our own ways
What can I say?

High Society

We’ll shop in the districts, baby
There’s no window shopping cart for me
I’ll drown you in kisses, maybe
I’ll make you see visions, probably
We’re driving my car, dangerous
My heart’s in a race it can’t complete
I’ll make you say, “Baby, yes!
I want you in first place here with me.”

We could live like kings and queens
Just imagine how perfect it would be
And I’ll be your princess,
Your lover, your mistress
High society
With a love like me
You know you’ll never need anything
And I’ll be like Christmas
Your gift wrapped in this dress
High society

I fell asleep on your heart last night
I’m reckless and passionate, it seems
There’s nothing in my life I like
But chasing after the latest things
But you’re my diamonds, baby
With you on my arm I’m sparkling
You might think I’m lying, maybe
But you are the gentleman for me

We could live like kings and queens
Just imagine how perfect it would be
And I’ll be your princess,
Your lover, your mistress
High society
With a love like me
You know you’ll never need anything
And I’ll be like Christmas
Your gift wrapped in this dress
High society

And I still want more
It’s like you opened my double doors
And what you’re waiting for
Is everything you deserved before
You and I will soar
‘Cause you’re the perfect score
I’m loving what’s in store
With you I’m never bored

We could live like kings and queens
Just imagine how perfect it would be
And I’ll be your princess,
Your lover, your mistress
High society
With a love like me
You know you’ll never need anything
And I’ll be like Christmas
Your gift wrapped in this dress
High society

 

Commentary:

I have no idea where this one came from, but it popped into my head so I wrote it down.  I was somewhat thinking of the seductive nature of a credit card, personified, but then it kind of took off from there.  I tried writing from the woman’s point of view this time, obviously a rich woman, unless perhaps that’s symbolic.  You could look at it that way.  I really wanted to write something new, since it felt like I hadn’t posted anything in awhile.  Well, thanks for reading.

Five Minutes on High

I melt with your touch
But
It doesn’t take much
Of
You to make my frozen heart thaw
This isn’t a love
I
Thought I would ever
Find
You’re so perfect just as you are
Slowly we both turn
And
Then hold tightly both
Hands
You’ve stirred up a warmth in my soul
I’m forgetting my
Plans
You’re getting all I
Can
Give because you just made me whole

Five minutes on high
I
Can’t ever deny
My
Love for you is strong
But
Life isn’t that long
Why?
Five minutes and I
Cried
I’m melting here in-
Side
You came for me and
You’re my
Five minutes on high

You’re what I was hoping
Now my heart is open
Everything I want is now here
Thought I’d be alone then
You found me here instead
I yearn for you to be near
Outside it is so cold
But love doesn’t get old
True love everyday is brand new
It’s not like I was told
Not something I could know
Not till the day I saw you

Five minutes on high
I
Can’t ever deny
My
Love for you is strong
But
Life isn’t that long
Why?
Five minutes and I
Cried
I’m melting here in-
Side
You came for me and
You’re my
Five minutes on high

Now here we both stand
You
Showed me what love can
Do
And now our heart is our home
The best is just ahead
The promises we’ve said
I know we’ll make them come true
I’ll cherish each moment with you

Five minutes on high
I
Can’t ever deny
My
Love for you is strong
But
Life isn’t that long
Why?
Five minutes and I
Cried
I’m melting here in-
Side
You came for me and
You’re my
Five minutes on high

 

Commentary:

I had this idea of a love song inspired by microwave dinners, so I went for it.  That said, there’s a little tongue-in-cheek humor embedded in this one.  You probably figured that out already.  Even so, I still think it’s a sweet song.  Hope you liked it.

Love and Death (Part 2)

Here we stand
At the edge of a chasm and
Only love and death
Between us
I’m asking can
We really handle it?
I’m reaching out
But I can’t see us
And in response to the storm warning
What comes over you?
You turn away
And disappear into the dark
I want to throw myself into the waves
And cover you
But you fade away
You’re not there at all

Love is for you
And death is for me
With or without you
I can’t seem to breathe
Love is for you
Until the last breath of me
What I would not do
To give you the best of me

I’m looking for you
But I can’t see my hand in front of me
And then I’m scared to
Because I think I’m going to fall
And then from nothing
I feel your hands, they’re touching me
I feel them there to
Rescue me now from it all
But inside me, there’s a warring
Between love and fear
And then I know you’ve come and gone again
There’s no denying that before it
Back when you were here
I was still scared something was wrong again

Love is for you
And death is for me
With or without you
I can’t seem to breathe
Love is for you
Until the last breath of me
What I would not do
To give you the best of me

Still crave your touch
And killed by the pain of it
Slave to your love
But changed from its innocence
What good is love
If death is its next of kin?
Why not give up?
Love’s a game no one can win

Love is for you
And death is for me
With or without you
I can’t seem to breathe
Love is for you
Until the last breath of me
What I would not do
To give you the best of me

Love and Death (A Song)

We’re in an age of
Love and death
Two edges of
The very same sword
It pierces armor
And your garments
It can save you
Or be painful
It’s lurking just around the corner
I should warn you
There it’s waiting for your guard
To fall
At first the raindrop the harbinger
Of the storm
You think you’re safe and suddenly
You’re gone

Love is for you
And death is for me
With or without you
I can’t seem to breathe
Love is for you
Until the last breath of me
What I would not do to
Give you what’s left of me

Have you tamed me
Or enslaved me?
I don’t know anymore
And I don’t think I care
Your love is like
An ocean breaking
Against the stony shores
Just sweep me up
And take me with you there
But then I look around the corner
I wasn’t going to
You steal my heart away
And then you’re gone
And only pain remains where once
My heart was warm for you
I watch it bleed away
Until it’s cold

Love is for you
And death is for me
With or without you
I can’t seem to breathe
Love is for you
Until the last breath of me
What I would not do to
Give you what’s left of me

Killed by your touch
And saved by your tenderness
Can’t get enough
Yet slain by the end of it
What would you give
If your love could bring for me
A chance to live
To truly be able to breathe?

Love is for you
And death is for me
With or without you
I can’t seem to breathe
Love is for you
Until the last breath of me
What I would not do to
Give you what’s left of me

Like a Jedi Fighting a Dog in a Canoe (An Unusual Star Wars Love Song)

First Order of business
Is smother you with kisses
Offer no Resistance
‘Cause you’re the one I’m missing
My heart is warm like Jakku
There’s nothing I would not do
If you fall, I’ve got you
My saga’s all about you

I’m like a Jedi fighting a dog
In a cano-o-o-oe
I’m like a Jedi fighting a dog
In a cano-o-o-oe
How ’bout you?

Our love is easy Peazy
It won’t take much to please me
I really think that you’re great
I’ll be rolling with you like BB-8
No matter where my heart goes
I will never treat you like Sarco
I’ll be your wingmate like I’m Poe
Together we’ll face the unknown

I’m like a Jedi fighting a dog
In a cano-o-o-oe
I’m like a Jedi fighting a dog
In a cano-o-o-oe
How ’bout you?

Baby our love’s the closest
Like we are on Geonosis
And when you’re feeling hopeless
Through the disturbance I’ll notice
And if this song makes no sense
You’ll understand if you focus
Like midichlorians speak to me
I will be there when you need me

I’m like a Jedi fighting a dog
In a cano-o-o-oe
I’m like a Jedi fighting a dog
In a cano-o-o-oe
How ’bout you?

You never will be lonely
I won’t disappear like Kenobi
And if a rancor holds me
You’ll throw a bone into both its teeth
I’m like the Force on a hard day
Because I’m with you always

I’m like a Jedi fighting a dog
In a cano-o-o-oe
How ’bout you?
