A Song is Digesting (original song)

Tuesday, March 12, 2019

In lieu of a blog post this week, here's a video of me playing the only love song I've ever written. Enjoy!





A Song is Digesting lyrics:


Verse 1:
Someday I’ll write a song to tell our story
How we met in French and flirted weird
How I misspelled your name in hangman
And how you blushed red up to your ears

Verse 2:
And when I write that song to tell our story
I’ll mention French group “families”
And the Valentine’s jokes about incest
And how you still have the card ya got from me

Chorus:
Right now a song is digesting
But it’s not ready to be sung
Someday I’ll sing it for you, maybe,
But for now, all I have is this one

Verse 3:
And I’ll talk about the pyramid scheme
My dad bought into my Freshman year
And how I got a new phone number
An excuse, and just ‘nuff courage to share

Verse 4:
And when I write that song to tell our story
You can bet that I won’t forget how
Your sister ate the slip with my new number
So that you couldn’t call to ask me out

Verse 5:
And when I write the song to tell our story
I’ll have to point out how I couldn’t date
Until I reached my sixteenth birthday
So it wouldn’t ‘ave done you much good anyway

Chorus

Verse 6:
Someday I’ll write that song to tell it, really
How Tami made you your own holiday
How every day became Hit Will Day
Until I switched schools and ran away

Verse 7:
Someday I’ll write that song to tell our story
How your ex-girlfriend made you get online
And had you make a Facebook profile
To talk to her ‘fore you were mine

Verse 8:
And when in song I tell our story
I’ll mention how you stalled six whole weeks
To meet and ask my dad’s permission
While wondered if you’d be chaff or wheat

Chorus

Verse 9:
Someday I’ll tell ‘bout our first date day
And how you thought that we still just friends
When we took Riley to the park in Lyons
So you didn’t even try to hold my hand

Verse 10:
Someday I’ll write a song to tell our story
How we both waited six months to say
“I love you” after the other
‘Til I ensured it was my fortune Christmas Day

Chorus

Verse 11:
And I’ll talk about that day in April
How all the things I said you’d hate me for
Became the best things I’d ever told you
And how as I told you mine you told me yours

Verse 12:
And when I write that song to tell our story
I’ll write about the day we said our vows
How we stood up in church in our pajamas
And gave ourselves to be the other’s spouse

Chorus

Verse 13:
Someday I’ll write a song to tell our story
And tell of things I can’t yet comprehend
One day I’ll look back exclaiming
“And I really thought that I loved you back then?!”

End Chorus:
Right now a song is digesting
But it’s not ready to be sung
Someday I’ll sing it for you, Baby…
But for now, all I have is this one
