Today is my birthday, so I thought the best way to celebrate would be to share a new song! :)
Instead of doing the regular video, I decided to show off my stick-figure drawing skills, and my chicken scratch handwriting. :) Both of which I hope you'll at least find endearing.
Recorded on FlipCamHD, GarageBand and Blue Snowball mic, with piano, vocals, and glockenspiel by me, Alfa Garcia. Edited on iMovie. More at www.alfa-music.com.
Don't make me do the things / that you want me to do
Like going out dancing / and listening to
all your songs / about somebody new.
A crossword game you play / while you're shuffling names
but I'm the answer to questions / you're wanting to say
8 letters across / for true love.
Don't wanna be the girl on the side / waiting for her goodbye
holding out hope / that you'll finally find
I'm the one that you need / but until you see
I won't wait / til you fall for me
So call me a missed opportunity.
Our friendship to the test / a broken ego at best
but I'd rather hang on / to whatever is left
of my pride / if it means goodbye.
You know I can't refuse / things you want me to do
oh, I'd be hangin' on by a string if I could
so i'll walk away / til some other day.
It'll break my heart for sure
'Cause I'm supposed to be yours
I saw it / in a dream / last night
