This my video submission to the "Be The Lead Singer of Crowded House" contest. The band Crowded House provided an MP3 of the instrumental track "Intriguer" for fans to record themselves performing original lyrics. Please forgive the mess... this is my creative space so it's pretty much always a mess!

UPDATE: The contest was won by a performer known as "Miss Little" (Sara McCallum) from Sydney, Australia. Here is a video of her performing her lyrics with the band at the final concert of the tour in Sydney:


Here are the lyrics from my contest submission:

Always hanging up the phone, when I walk into the room
A subtle nervousness at times, when I get too close to you
So alert and so aware, of position and of place
A glance becomes a stare, you study every face
Turn a corner up ahead, disappear into thin air (like you were never there)

Were you looking for a place, where you could find some peace
Somebody you could trust, to watch your back while you sleep
A shelter from the storm, a respite from intrigue
A facade of normalcy, for the dangerous life you lead
It's what you need (someone like me)

Come in from the dark, step into the light
Feel the sun on your face, look forward to the night
we will find a place, where we can catch our breath
far from everything, that makes you The Intriguer
The Intriguer, The Intriguer
