Description

This song has been through quite a journey. We have restarted it no less than 4 times. Twice was due to technical issues and the other two times was because it just didn’t feel right. I have a lot of different versions and stages of this song on my hard drives, too many really. What we ended up going with was a throw back to ‘Roy Orbison’.That explains why you can’t really place it in any genre of today (and if you can, let me know what you come up with!). I love Roy Orbison, and have grown to accept this quirky, strange version of my song. I am really happy with the string arrangement I composed in it, but it’s hidden way back in there in the mix.This is mainly because I obviously couldn’t afford a whole orchestra to play it and the synth I programmed just can’t do it justice. Oh well, one day, one day… 🙂

lyrics

I wanna hold you baby
but I’m not free.
I wanna feel you darling
but I’m not free.And you are so beautiful
and I wish I could be with you.I wanna kiss you cutie
but I’m not free.
I wanna know you gorgeous
but I’m not free.
And I can tell by the way
your eyes are glued to my mouth
that you wanna know me honey
inside and out

And you are so beautiful
and I wanna be with you
’cause you are so remarkable
and I wish I could be with you.

Your life, your ways,
your truth, your faith…
I want to know you now.

‘Cause you are so beautiful
and I wanna be with you.
Oh you are so remarkable
and I wish I could be with you.
