Messing Around

Demo: 

Liner Notes: 

Apparently LOVE can get you when you least expect it. Even if you think your immune, or you never want to go down that road again, that little sod Cupid will still aim that arrow straight for your much broken heart and before you know it your smitten. Unfortunately he doesn't always aim for the object of your affection. He's a mischievous little blighter.

Lyrics: 

Messing Around

Music and Lyrics by Mark Scullion ©2021

We were messing around, I never thought I'd fall for you
We were messing around, I never thought I'd fall

It started slowly and kept that pace, once a week drinks at a quiet place.
Surrounded by liars, spinning tales of love, we kept it honest, we kept it real.

We were messing around, I never thought I'd fall for you
We were messing around, I never thought I'd fall

Just a little fun, no strings attached, two lonely people perfectly matched.
Two broken people with tales of hurt, having some fun, for what it was worth.

We were messing around, I never thought I'd fall for you
We were messing around, I never thought I'd fall

Confessing love, I see that look on your face,
A frightened rabbit looking for escape,
If love meant pain, when Cupid took his aim,
I'll take the brunt, I'll take the blame.

We were messing around, I never thought I'd fall for you
We were messing around, I never thought I'd fall
We were messing around, I never thought I'd fall for you
We were messing around, I never thought I'd fall

love the sound of your vocals. i dont think one can mess around without at least one of tehm falling a little bit in love. the song is an effective expression of such situations. i like the irrepressible rhythm of the song, suggesting the unavoidable destiny of the messing arounders.

I like the unfolding melody which is soft and seductive contrasting with the intense backing elevates the drama of the lyrics to another height! Great

Nice atmospheric use of effects, reminds me of late Smashing Pumpkins / Machina era stuff. Really cool!
