Liner Notes: 

I joined this skirmish late (half an hour ago) - so quite pleased with the write. I used that technique with starting the next line from the last word of the line before. It worked a treat to keep me rolling. Recommended!

Lyrics: 

I CAN’T TELL YOU
(c) 2018 Georgie Cooper

VERSE
The subtle signals I’ve been sending you
You don’t seem to notice what I’m trying to do
Do what you feel and feel what you say
Say though if you’d rather that I went away

CHORUS
I can’t tell you
You won’t hear me
Out of earshot
Won’t believe me
You won’t listen anyway
Don’t wanna know
What I’ve gotta say

VERSE
I’m being a pest but I’m trying my best
Best you don’t know the things in my head
Head for the door it’s safer outside
Outside of my head where things haven’t been said

CHORUS x2
I can’t tell you
You won’t hear me
Out of earshot
Won’t believe me
You won’t listen anyway
Don’t wanna know
What I’ve gotta say

VERSE
Don’t know what I’m doing don’t know if it’s me
Me and you playing some weird fantasy
Fantasy one day will never come true
There is no reality involves me and you

CHORUS x2
I can’t tell you
You won’t hear me
Out of earshot
Won’t believe me
You won’t listen anyway
Don’t wanna know
What I’ve gotta say

I like your scat in the beginning. I do think that chorus is strong. Really love this style - the knock is well placed -might do that a bit more forcefully?

Great rhythmic vibe! Love that chorus, too. Your vocal delivery is fantastic. Wonderful skirmishing!

I love the growl in your voice. I love your use of the last word of one line to start the next. I wanna steal that idea sometime. Works really well with your melody/performance.

This was great. My 7 year old son started spontaneously dancing while I was listening! Smile
