You Were My Girl

Liner Notes

Another skirmish - prompt was Telephone, Television, Radio

A great prompt, had me stumped for a moment and then took off. This was a fun one!

Lyrics

V1:
I listen to the telephone ring
Think about the song I'd rather sing
Why did I leave my heart out there on a string
When all along I knew the pain was gonna sting

I sit in silence and turn on the radio
Or maybe sit down to a television show
All I know is that I won't pick up the phone
I'd really rather sit here silent all alone

CH:
'Cause You Were My Girl
My whole world
I just wanna disappear
You Were My Girl
And now you've hurled
Our love a million miles away
I just wish I could forget
That You Were My Girl

V2:
I'll just fall down in my easy chair
Stew about the things that make life so unfair
Maybe sit and binge some "Breaking Bad"
It won't matter that I'm feeling really sad

I'll surely wonder if you've changed your mind
Then I'll realize I must be blind
I'll just sit alone and have a drink or three
Think about why there's no more you and me

CH:
'Cause You Were My Girl
My whole world
I just wanna disappear
You Were My Girl
And now you've hurled
Our love a million miles away
I just wish I could forget
That You Were My Girl

Repeat chorus

Great energy in this! Sounds like you had a lot of fun. I could easily see this going on an album. Nice work! 😀

Very tight arrangement and a fine performance. The harmonies on the chorus really pump it up. Great skirmish.

Your songs always give me some desire to try harmony singing, but I havent figured that tech out yet. Love the pace of your song, how you get out those lyrics so well and so quickly amazes me. The storyline is one that many could relate to. Well done on the skirmish, liked it very much.

I love this! I love that he won't pick up the phone for fear he's getting dumped. That is an awesome use of the prompt. There is a radio and a TV too - bam! Love the lyrics, music and vocals. Super entertaining skirmish all around. A hit in my book.
