An old song from a younger man

An old song from a younger man. I think this was the first thing I ever recorded and mixed myself, maybe? 2004, perhaps? An old Boss BR-864. Singing into the onboard mics. Still trying to rid myself of an American accent when I sang. Still dropping ‘g’s.

==========================================

Think too much, I act too slow
The moments pass and the syntax refuses to flow
Don’t think of it as sentiment
Or a nervousness as I have to catch my breath
In that pause (the heart beat)
I take in the room and the walls and the light
And I breath, I breath in that moment
And just for that moment, just in that moment is all
Baby Baby, come

Half-lit room with its breathless air
I can only just begin to forgive myself
For daring to dress you down
Are we open now?
When we talk, when we touch each to other’s mouths?
Confess to me all you dare and I swear we can be ourselves
In a breath, in a breath in a moment
And just for that moment, just in that moment is all
Baby Baby, come

Think too much, I act too slow
The moments pass and the syntax refuses to flow
Don’t think of it as sentiment
Or a nervousness as I have to catch my breath
Confess to me all you dare and I swear we can be ourselves
In a breath, in a breath in a moment
And just for that moment, that one tender moment is all
Baby Baby, come
