Blindsighted

(oehler/goedken)

Looking back at you
there were things I believed
truths I did subdue
there were things I’d pretend
things I never knew

Waiting for an answer
you’d subtly define
thinking of the future
you’d carefully decline
so was I wrong
wrong to think of you as mine
my pretty baby
I must’ve been looking at you blind

Waiting for an answer
you’d dutifully refine
working from the unknown
tangled in your vine
so was I wrong
wrong to think of you as mine
my pretty baby
I must’ve been looking at you blind.

 [EG]  This came from an attempt to write some Chris Issak “Forever Blue” lyrics.   Not that the finished work bares much resemblance to Mr. isaak’s work.  Though it does feature the phrase “pretty baby.”

[EO] The synth programming was heavily influenced by Lassigue Bendthaus’ “Matter.”
