Another love song of sorts from the pile of old projects not hitherto recorded. I promise I’ll stop with the Valentines pells now….

Key of Love (in F again) has been an excuse to work in a higher register. There’s just a little electronics whine and room ring in the raw vox STEM but it’s easily filtered out. I’ve been trying to leave lots of headroom on the mic and reduce artifacts like breath pops; the tradeoff is hearing my hardwalled studio.

Lyrics (cc)BY 2013 D A Ayer
Probably Shouldn’t

[1] I love you, baby…although I probably shouldn’t!
I tried to leave you, once…well, you know I just couldn’t.
My love is strong…you know I can’t restrain it.
I don’t believe it’s wrong even though I can’t explain it.
If you believe it’s a sin I hope you can find it in your heart to forgive it.
We only get this life we’re in, I think we owe it to ourselves to live it.

[2] I love you, baby, and though I can’t command it,
I want to squeeze you, sugar, ‘til you tell me that you just can’t stand it.
When we’re apart you know I’m driven to distraction;
I get a heavy heart thinkin’ ‘bout a little midnight action.
If you didn’t exist my mind would do gymnastics trying to invent you.
And on Sunday morning I pump my fist and thank the Lord above that he sent you.

[3] I love you, baby, and though I don’t recommend it,
the rule that keeps me from you might not break, but I think I’m gonna bend it.
If you want to drop by, you know my back door’s open;
Just tell a little white lie (It might not work, but again, here’s hopin’).
If I don’t get to see you real soon I just might lose my capacity for reason.
You’re like huntin’ duck, my dear, some say it tastes a little better when it’s not in season….

[4: reprise 1]
