FDP Forum / Tin Pan Alley - Songwriting / Girl, Can I be Your Lover?


Crozet, VA

I'm "Branded"-- my stars are ripped away
Oct 26th, 2010 04:54 AM   Edit   Profile  

Ha, ha, ha -- Now, I was trying to get this crossover feel going so I mished-moshed a few genres in there. I let my 14 year old daughter give it a listen under headphones and when she got to the first chorus, she started laughing uncontrollably -- I think it was the handclaps and banjo. Hmmmm, what could that mean?

So here's my little "pop" tune.

Girl, Can I be Your Lover?
(c) Emmrich 2010

Now I think about you every day
and I dream about you every night
I wonder why it took me so, so long
'cause girl you do it right

one dark day you danced into my life
one bright night you opened my eyes
and now I'm doing everything that I can
cause I sure do wanna be your man

hey girl, can I be your lover?
when you're around there's no trouble
and my mind gets the notion
the way you set things in motion
I'll never need another one
hey girl, can I be your lover?
hey girl, can I be your lover?
yea, yea, ... yea, yea, yea
girl, can I be your lover?

when I see that flash in your eyes
I hear the sparkle in your reply
I get a heart beating message
fate clearly expresses
I gotta make you mine

well, today's the day I make a move
and tonight's the night I hope you choose
that you let me doing everything that I can
cause I sure do wanna be your man

(chorus again x2)

This is really fine sounding song, Kevin. The backing compliments your vocals nicely and the lyrics are quite creative.

Maybe one of, if not your best that I've heard!
