Love Songs For You

Love Songs For You

Liner Notes: 

Home sick and trying to write but nothing seems to come out very well. This isn't great but it's something and I feel like something written is better than staring at a blank screen. Enjoy


Have to get up early
Go to work every day
Gotta earn a living
Got bills I gotta pay

I come home late at night
Got more work to be done
Dinner, clean and laundry
No time left for much fun

But all I really
Want to do
Is write love
Songs for you

Having you on my mind
Makes my work day drag on
But what else can I do
Can’t pay bills with a song

Oh what I would
Give or trade
If love songs
got me paid

Can’t quit my job
Can’t call in ill
I won’t get dough
To pay the bills

Oh all I really
Want to do
Is write love
Songs for you

Can someone please just pay
me to only
Write love
Songs for you

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

I think many of us would love to get paid to write love songs for our significant others...!

I really dig the sentiment here and in spite of your illness, I think this works pretty well.

Oh yeah, I'd love to get paid to write a bunch of love songs. That's living the dream. This flows well to me. Nothing fancy, but a good country song often takes the simplest form. Sorry you're homesick. Hope it passes and you start feeling happy soon.

The virtue of 5090 and the "just keep writing" to get you in the groove regardless of what's raining down around yoU! The simplicity is appealing. I'll pick it up!
