The usual drill: use it if you like it.

Notes on March 16, 2014: Replaced the preview and rough mix with a new performance flirting with a lower key. Practice helped. There’s a bit of low background noise in the vox track in verse 4, but I was much happier with the delivery and my pitch. Old stems are still here for convenience and history.

Monuments

Pharaoh built a pyramid.
You could see it for a mile.
The next king razed it to the ground
so he could watch the Nile.
You say our love’s a monument—
that kinda makes me smile—
‘cause nothing’s quite so permanent
it won’t go out of style.

You’ve got a closet full of shoes
you hardly ever wear
and though you say you love each one
I can’t believe you care.
I hesitate to bring this up,
but you’re living in denial….
The day you wore them from the store
those shoes went out of style.

I know a guy who likes to try on
every single one:
a shirt and belt, a suit and tie;
I guess he thinks it’s fun.
But in the end he always buys
the latest on the pile.
It might not fit, but surely it
is in the latest style.

I’ve loved you now these many years.
Another I won’t find
to share my laughter and my tears.
You’re always on my mind.
Now when I’m onto something good
I hold it tight a while
‘cause often when I turn around
it’s just come back in style.

Pharaoh built a pyramid.
You could see it for a mile.
The next king razed it to the ground
so he could watch the Nile.
You say our love’s a monument—
that kinda makes me smile—
Let’s not craft some epitaph.
Let’s just go out in style.
