Liner Notes: 

Rather an untidy ;yric this time as I'm preoccupied and in a hurry. Maybe tidy it up later if I feel it's worth it.
Written for the Sunday night skirmish with the theme Green.
Yes I know, I really was seriously pulling out crap ideas with the green skiin, but I had no clue what to write and no decent ideas lol

Collabs welcome Smile please read my collab info on profile page Smile

Lyrics: 

v
I fell in love with
The colour of your skin
That oh so gentle shade of green
It pulls me in and
Holds me close
Makes loving you feel so extreme

v
I fell on love with
The way you talk to me
That rhythmic feeling that I crave
I wish that I could
Speak that way
And wish that I could understand

ch
It's another language
The way you talk to me
It's another language
I can never know for sure
What you are saying is all good
And what your meaning is all true
So I wish that could
Talk in another language
The way you talk to me
In another language

v
I'm sure you mean well
With your alien words
Your looks that make me melt and know
That I am under
To-tal-ly
Underneath your spell of green

ch
It's another language
The way you talk to me
It's another language
I can never know for sure
What you are saying is all good
And what your meaning is all true
So I wish that could
Talk in another language
The way you talk to me
In another language

This is delightfully unique and clever. The verses are very sweet and loving. I love how the chorus is more universal and could really apply to any relationship where there is a communication gap.

Lots of good pieces. Worth keeping after, or not, it's up to the writer. How to communicate without a common language is a very metaphorical subject.

It is a bit different but has a conversational charm. I think it actually has a lot of potential, well skirmished.

Looking at the lyrics...the opening verse is kinda creepy...lol. Maybe not in Star Trek Smile The second verse describes a good talker...nice. Chorus is interesting as we don't know what language or is it jive-talking...unknown at this point. Next verse tells the color green is exciting the character. Yeah, I think it has potential. Nice job on this Amanda.

Whatever you may think about it, this is a very original lyric. It leaves us guessing about to whom you are talking. A frog, a parrot, a martian? Pretty cool.

I find green to be a very attractive, sexy color. Attaching it to an alien's skin makes it all the more intriguing. I'd totally date an alien if one showed up on my doorstep.
Even if you're not entirely happy with it, that chorus is easily recyclable. Speaks a lot relationships and how we intercommunicate constantly in them.
So alien love and communication difficulties. Works for me! Smile

Cool take on skirmish and very different to everything I've seen or heard. I like the idea of alien love. Read your lyrics several times and each time liked it more.

This is a great idea! I don't think these are "crap ideas" at all!

Hey Amanda, you did an excellent job on your skirmish I like it. Your lyrics sound great.

nicely skirmished. I agree with those saying how the chorus is more universal (less Universal? Wink ) and could be re-worked for a more conventional relationship.
