Liner Notes: 

This came to me as I was going to bed one night. I scribbled the lyrics and ta te tum da da dummed my head music and rhythm, into the iPad. Transcribing the music from my iPad notes is much harder than it should be. The music needs much love and attention.

I'm only putting it up because it is the 10th song I've started and I need to put them up in the order I wrote them.

The 11th song is ready to go up and I can't put it in the 10 slot.

If I don't put them up in the correct order, then the world will stop turning.

Here are the lyrics for now. Title a bit short I think.

The music is ready.

Man am I going to have trouble singing this.

Lyrics: 

Music and Lyrics by M.M.Scullion ©2020

I, I am falling, falling in, love with you.
Circumstances, negate chances, damn me too.
I am,
Hiding my feelings,
Laughing at rumours,
Ignoring gossip, but this
Innuendo bleeds truth.

If only I could run, run away,
if only I could hide, hide away,
Until this foolishness subsides,
Until this childishness is gone,
And my life returns to boring, routine, mundane madness.

I, I am smiling, smiling at, the fun things you do.
Situations, retrieve frustration, confuse me too.
I am,
Hiding my feelings,
Laughing at rumours,
Ignoring gossip, but this
Innuendo bleeds truth.

If only I could make, make you see,
if only I could make, make you believe,
Then this foolishness subsides,
Then this childishness be gone,
And you become my life of, routine, mundane madness.
