Demo: 

Liner Notes: 

I have an old Washburn acoustic guitar that doesn't get played often... until now. This is basically just a one take, improvised, fictional story of obsessive, unrequited "love".

Lyrics: 

You're the cutest girl that I've ever seen
Won't you marry me tonight?
But I'm chicken shit, I don't say anything
Just sit at the back and dream away

I've got nothing good to say
I've got nothing smart to say

Oh this old romance..

You're pretty as a little picture
You're pretty as a little picture
I'd hang you on my wall
If I wasn't homeless, I'd hang you on my wall

You're the prettiest thing I've ever seen on TV
And now I know where you live
I follow you home every night, can you see me?
Will you stop and say hello?
Why have I got nowhere so far
I've professed my love a thousand times to you
But you don't think that's appropriate
So you call the cops

You'e the prettiest thing that I've seen on TV
I understand that I'm repeating myself
But you're the most encouraging person
When you talk on that veterinary show
I wish I was one of those dogs
I wish I was on crufts

This hasn't got much longer to go
I swear I still sit here and love you so
Never let any harm come to you, you see
That's my prerogative cos I'm the one
You dream of in your mind
Oh, you dream of me in my mind.

Pretty little picture
Pretty little picture in my mind, there's a picture in my mind
There's a picture in my mind, there's a picture in my mind
There's a picture in my mind, there's a picture in my mind
There's a picture in my mind, there's a picture in my mind
There's a picture in my mind, there's a picture in my mind
There's a picture in my mind, there's a picture in my mind
There's a picture in my mind



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

Good groove and very cool/hilarious how the twists go from longing to creepiness. Thanks for joining in the skirmish!

I like the humor and the guitar, and your vocal delivery. It's a good song!
