about

This is Chapter 4 of of my collection of songs: LifeLongLove.

Setting: Our guests arrive in less than an hour -- but I’m still strolling down this romantic memory lane. I'm remembering another near-miss. This went down in the music building on campus. I can practically smell the rehearsal room we were in - old baloney sandwiches, instrument polish and dust on the strings of the out-of-tune piano.

lyrics

you just looked in my eyes and said,
“it seems like something’s wrong”
so now you’re off to write
another heart-breaking song
and i’ve seen this before
you get bored so you start a tug-of-war
this phenomenon is a little odd
it’s . . . it’s relational sabotage

i just looked in your eyes
and the penny finally dropped
yeah, it’s taken awhile but now I am catching on
you tear things apart, you make it hard
so you can suffer for your art
but it’s a crock, yeah it’s a con
it’s relational sabotage
‘cause you’re the type
who needs some drama every night
yeah, you go and pick a fight
so you can write about love gone wrong

oh you sing about pain and rejection and hurt
but all your inspiration leaves me in the dirt
and it’s easy to see
it’s not me who’s to blame for this misery
you bring it on and then camouflage
your relational sabotage
‘cause you’re the type
who needs some drama every night
yeah, you go and pick a fight
just so you can write about love gone wrong

now you wanna make up
well that’s tough ‘cause i have had enough
i swear to god, you gotta stop
this relational sabotage
okay, alright
you want some drama here tonight?
you can write another song
about love going wrong
because now i’m gone
go and write another song
about love going wrong
because now i’m gone
