Harry Truman said that, I think.
Well...okay...maybe not...

THE HEART STOPS HERE

i'm gonna stay out of love's way
if it's the last thing that i do
i can't take another heartbreak
like mary ellen put me through
i had it bad for her, it was love for sure
but we got a little off track
when billy caught her eye, she told me goodbye
the girl never even looked back

   this is gonna stop....right here
   i'm sending this old heart packing...no tears
   there'll be no slow dancin' or sweet romancin'
   i've had enough
   no more crawling or waiting for her call and
   no more falling in love
   this boy's done feeling like some
   headlight-paralyzed deer
   the rest of me might just keep on running
   but the heart stops here

tracy must have tricked me, it happened so quickly
i couldn't resist at all
i fell in love with every inch of
that five-foot-ten-inch doll
i set aside my rule, a love-sick fool
my heart beating like a drum
it couldn't get any better 'til her dear john letter said
baby, you're not the one

repeat chorus

Oh come on!!!!! I can promise you that most people who hear this song will have NO idea how advanced it is!

"no more crawling or waiting for her call and" is one of the MANY examples of what's going on.

More obvious, but EXTREMELY effective..."this is gonna stop....right here."

I'll let everyone else give you praise. You simply ticked me off wink smile

Once again, stellar!

this boy's done feeling like some
headlight-paralyzed deer
the rest of me might just keep on running
but the heart stops here


Love that payoff for the chorus!! If I listed all of the great things about this, I'd kill a virtual tree (too many 1's and 0's). Fantastic song "angle", great lyrics, and music/vocals/mix to complete a wonderful delivery. Floyd continues to bat 1000!! Great, fun stuff Floyd!! Take care. Greg

Super! Your Lyrics are marvelous! The song is very tight and right in the pocket.

(on my second listen, I wondered how it might feel with a modulation at the second verse?)

What you did with the reverb at the brakes was great, and I smiled at your vocal "here-rrrr" in the fade-out.

Floyd,
Great song, great story line. So ‘no more slow dancing” you lament, who needs it, just give me more of this ‘Rocking drive, for a cheer up, it really works for me.

Cool retro country rocker.... it moves along nicely.

Good job on the lyric crafting.

I like the production chops too.

Hi Floyd,

great lyrics. "this boy's done feeling like some headlight-paralyzed deer". I love this imagery.
Music, vocals and mix are outstanding as always.
Another of your hits.
I really enjoyed my listens.

Cool lyrics to take the usual grief based story and slap it around with clever lines and a cool melody.
Now, I wonder when BIAB will have some Brownsville styles.
Cool work floyd jane.

several comments:

so many songwriters neglect the beginning of songs and their song has a hard time getting off the ground . . . not this song . . . the beginning catches you the minute you start listening!

I like to use double entendres in music, so when I hear someone else do it, I smile to myself.
when you did a break at "this is gonna stop....right here", I was like YES! Good Job! way to drive home the point using the music to emphasize the point!

I like the emphasis with the drums on "the rest of me might just keep on running" - I think I would have even seen you take it out another bar so I could run far enough away grin

very well constructed and thought out sound Floyd! Blessings!

Hi Floyd.

A great song with a fabulous sound and a loud mix mix which doesn't sound over-compressed.

What a very, VERY clever arrangement. Holds your attention from the first bar to the last.

Super professional as ever, Floyd.
