Demo: 

Liner Notes: 

Sorry the demo is so crappy. I'll admit, I half arsed it just to have a demo at all!

Lyrics: 

(Take me as I am, ‘cos you’ve done all that you can do)

Oh, skip a step and make me look good
The only two ready for the other’s pace
Trouble in threes is on its knees
And chaos in a double’s gonna take its place

I bet your hair’s as soft it looks and
I bet your arms are heavy in the dead of night
And I bet I’ll lie, and I bet I won’t try
And I bet I haven’t got a chance, I bet that I’m right

I sprint
You strut
You’re so many things I’m not
But you’re
A catch
In terms of the ways we match

I didn’t know I was allowed to love you
I didn’t know I was allowed to say, that you’re
My Best friend, maybe you’re my greatest shot
And you’re my first choice, baby, in another way

Oh I didn’t know I wasn’t supposed to
Suddenly see you so clearly one day
I didn’t know I was allowed to love you
I didn’t know I was allowed to love you
I didn’t know I was allowed to love you

(Take me as I am, ‘cos you’ve done all that you can do)

I became someone by taking action
You were born running and you’ll never stop
Committing sins and saving our skins
Is the only instinct we don’t wanna drop

Drag me by the collar to our next adventure
You were born running and it’s natural skill
Let me catch up, let me catch up
Let me train up to your level and we’ll never stay still

Somehow
We joined
Syncing up in counterpoint
I tense
You relax
And I reckon that we match

I didn’t know I was allowed to love you
I didn’t know I was allowed to say, that you’re
My Best friend, maybe you’re my greatest shot
And you’re my first choice, baby, in another way

Oh I didn’t know I wasn’t supposed to
Suddenly see you so clearly one day
I didn’t know I was allowed to love you
I didn’t know I was allowed to love you
I didn’t know I was allowed to love you

(Take me as I am, ‘cos you’ve done all that you can do)

Yeah, take me as I am, a better person ‘cos of you



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

This is so nice and beautiful, a very interesting write as it makes me feel like you feel you are the problem in this relationship. Beautiful voice and melody, super catchy.

love the way you glide through all these seeming contradiction that are the stuff that bend the two people into one another. a unique and joyous love song that doesnt skirt the negative obstacles.

WOW WHAT A FANTASTIC SONG

you really get through those lines
my tongue just gets tied reading them
so cleverly constructed
you do remind me of Lilly Allen vocally
( COMPLEMENT ) I love Lilly
loved this whole track

hope you do collabs
