Squeaky Wheel

Squeaky Wheel

Liner Notes: 

Folk seemed to be into my superhero song (Thousand Offers) so here's one from the perspective of her love interest - always wondering when the hero might show up next.


Electric buzzing
I won’t kill
A wasp enjoys the city
From my windowsill
She’s just doing
Exactly what I do
Keeping watch for you

I break for lunch alone
Silent on the roof
Everyone’s got something
They want to prove
And as for me, I want
To justify the view
Keeping watch for you

You’ve jammed my settings
I don’t know how to feel
Flit between worry and pride
Like a squeaky wheel
Try to picture what your day is like
I haven’t got a clue
Keeping watch for you

Keeping watch for you.

Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

nice take on the superhero mystique.i love the opening with the wasp keeping watch for the superhero. very jaunty melody with a touch of melancholia in the vocal, suggesting an untraversable chasm between the girlfriend and her superhero over.

Nice song, for a friend; who wouldn't want to be the subject. Well done.

Rally enjoyed the acoustic guitar with the breathy vocals - so much I didn’t even notice the story until I read the lyrics after. Cool and works well with the delivery.
