Arm Around Me

Liner Notes: 

I was lying in bed trying to go back to sleep unsuccessfully when the first two lines of the chorus wouldn't leave me alone. So I got up wrote it down. And then I started writing a song that I figured my friend @adnama17 would sing for our group 'Evil Grin' but then it kind of insisted that I change it up to this. No use arguing with the muse sometimes.

Lyrics: 

I don't make a habit of walking the streets
Bringing people home late at night
But I'm feeling lonely like never before
Just trying to feel alright

No matter what happens after you get up
For now I'm not by myself
I don't mind if you stay a while
Don't have to be at work till twelve

It's good to feel protected or at least not alone
Won't you put your arm around me?
You don't have to stay the whole night through
But won't you stay an hour or three
With your arm around me?

You help me chase all my demons away
With how you make me feel
Three hundred dollars and worth every cent
But I know this isn't real

It's good to feel protected or at least not alone
Won't you put your arm around me?
You don't have to stay the whole night through
But won't you stay an hour or three
With your arm around me?

It's been a year since I gave up
And let my marriage end
I can't help but feel this lonely
Every now and then
Every now and then

It's good to feel protected or at least not alone
Won't you put your arm around me?
You don't have to stay the whole night through
But won't you stay an hour or three...
You don't have to stay the whole night through
But won't you stay an hour or three
With your arm around me?

the muse does what it wants to! really nice the guitar vocal and the structure and content of the lyric. Chorus is a beauty and that extra line on the end nails it!

This is another great track where you take a common concept and take a more distinct and detailed spin on things. Revealing more details about the narrator as it goes on. I like the tune and the acoustic strumming here, the second "every now and then" was a nice touch.

Sometimes you gotta just follow the muse and do what it says. You never know what's gonna happen. The acoustic one take with the lyrics makes this great. I honestly can't think of this song any other way then how you recorded it.
