The Ruins

about

I recently starting writing and recording demos for a recording artist in need of songs. It's a different thing for me, not writing for myself. Still not sure how many of my songs will fit/resonate with different artists but it's something I wanted to try. Of the five songs I presented, this was the one chosen as the best possibility and not in it's current form. I wanted to share the original demo with you because I think it will interesting to compare it to how the song ends up (if it ends up). There will be a second demo and, if I'm lucky, a final product with a really fantastic singer. Wish me luck!

P.S. If you listen closely, you can hear Daphne snore after the first verse. She was napping while I was recording. Ha!

lyrics

Hold me, kiss me slowly
Out in public
Show them that we don’t care
Let them stop and stare
To see a love like ours
Makes them nervous
Say we shouldn’t move too fast
Never gonna make it last
They say
What’s the rush
And I say,
We just gotta lot to learn

They say we’re foolish
Yeah, They don’t take us seriously but, listen to me
I say, you and I are perfectly imperfect
So let’s ruin everything, everything

If we’re surely headed
For destruction
Then love me like a bad choice
Let’s go make a lot of noise
Shouldn’t all this crazy
Count for something
Oh before we both explode
Take off all those fancy clothes
You say
What’s the rush
And I say,
Oh, we gotta lot to learn

They say we’re foolish
Yeah, They don’t take us seriously but, listen to me
I say, you and I are perfectly imperfect
So let’s ruin everything, everything

If we’re gonna fall apart let’s do it out loud
If we’re gonna fall apart let’s burn it down to the ground

They say we’re foolish
Yeah, They don’t take us seriously but, listen to me
I say, you and I are perfectly imperfect
So let’s ruin everything, everything
They say we’re foolish
Yeah, They don’t take us seriously but, listen to me
I say, you and I are perfectly imperfect
So let’s ruin everything, everything
Let’s ruin everything, everything
Let’s ruin everything

Now the reason we're here
Every man, every woman
Is to help each other
Stand by each other
When love walks in the room
Everybody stand up
Oh it's good, good good
Say I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you - The Pretenders

At some point in my life, I heard this song and decided (before I knew I decided) that my life purpose was to send a "message of love". Be <3
