Track 3

ME WITH YOU 

Self explanatory. We all carry a few different versions of ourselves...Hopefully we all have people around whom the guard can come down.

 

Note for the geeks - the last chorus name checks "Tim" by The Replacements, "Trust" by Low and "Blue" by Joni Mitchell, all of which are fave albums of mine. 

 

LYRICS

Theres a me that smiles too quickly  
It's almost like a point of pride
There's a me that must fill silence 
There's a me that needs to hide

There's a me whose mind goes wandering
To those worst case scenarios 
There's a me I pretend to be 
Couple of me’s I still don't know 

But I’m used to ducking and diving 
Throwing the odd shape or two 
I can be me when I play sweet music
I can be me with you         

There's a me that gets judgemental 
There's a me that's too headstrong 
Act hellbent and so self righteous  
Long after I've been proven wrong 

Hashtag manchild 
There's a me who needs applause
There's a me who loves a rebel
With or without a cause 

But baby look past the disguises 
They're what it takes to get through
I can be me when I play sweet music
I can be me with you 

I can be me listening to my boys 
Riffing on their point of view 
I can be me when I hear sweet music 
I can be me with you 

They say what you see isnt always what you get 
But it's fun looking for clues 
Easy's over rated, lets get complicated 
Truth be told there are a fair few yous 

There's a me who looks too closely   
Late at night thinks too deep 
Analyses agonises
When someone his age should just sleep 

I can be me lying in your arms 
When you're starting to do what you do 
I can be me when I play sweet music
I can be me with you 

I can be me reading Jack in the half light 
Bingeing on Tim, Trust or Blue 
I can be me when I play sweet music
I can be me with you
