Liner Notes: 

Had a few ideas lurking that i could use in this. Lyrics only for now. House asleep. Skirmish Lyrics added 13.27 Sunday 8th.


Chance Meeting

It was late i was out on the highway
I turned maybe left instead of right
I saw dirty old buildings, no road signs
Only broken street lights

It was lonely and scary in this part of town
But i stopped at a dingy lit bar
To ask for directions home
Then i saw her standing there

My lips went dry my heart sped up
I couldn’t find the right word
I was in a state of confusion
all my thoughts became blurred

We talked and talked for hours
I stayed with her that night
Seeking shelter from my dull world
Until i saw morning light

I still struggle to describe her
Her skin so smooth and brown
Lips oh so inviting
And eyes in which to drown

It seemed just like an off chance
But i took it on the run
Coz i new without any doubt
It was the day that life had begun

I knew they’d never accept her
But i really couldn’t care less
Id give it all up in a blink
Just to share another caress

So i left that life all behind
Im now working bars and clubs
I come home every night
To her love her smiles her hugs.

Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

Good story telling. It moves us right along. Good job. Waiting for the music.

Great bluesy groove on this one--sounds like what would have been playing at that "dingy lit bar"!
