This is a cynical song distantly related to George Harrison's "If I Needed Someone". In this case, the guy is setting his girl straight ("I know it's fun, but you're not the one") The only overdubs aside from vocals are the arpeggio guitars.

*******************

Don't Blame Me

We met in dreams of future scenes
children of the night
She had a car, we traveled far
in freedom from the city lights

Ooh-ooh You do everything I could ask of you
Ooh-ooh some things I could never do
CHORUS
Don't blame me if the sun don't rise tomorrow
Don't blame me if the sky don't fall
I 'm not one to carve your number on me
don't wait up for me to call

It doesn't pay to look your way
when you read between my eyes
I know it's fun, but I'm not the one
and that should come as no surprise

Ooh-ooh You're my only girl, and I want to hold you
Ooh-ooh Such a lonely girl, when I told you
Chorus
short solo
By the shore, the ocean's roar
Spoke my words to you
The words of love, not said enough
But you know every one was true

Ooh-ooh I'll do anything that you want me to
Ooh-ooh One thing I can't give to you
Chorus twice

After hearing the mix in the car, I came home and redid the vocal and high backing vocal. Nothing like hearing it in your car to get the cold truth.
I'm developing a bit of a formula on these guitar arpeggio parts. I record two tracks, one with my Stratocaster, the other with the SG, then pan them opposite each other. This is one part that BIB can't do for me, the hook.
