Take Me Home
This song has a splash of snarkiness and a dash of romance. Maybe I should title it "Flippant Introvert in Love." wink I consider this track a throwaway song, but my 13-year-old daughter likes it, so I recorded it.

Lyrics:

People come from miles just to tell me I’m pretty
Dress me like a queen, drag me off to the city
But I don’t want to know their lies
And I don’t want to hear their cries

‘Cause I just want to know you
I just want to grow old with you
I think I told you
Take me home

There’s a man on the street and he wants my money
There’s a man on TV and he thinks he’s funny
Maybe it’s the other way around
Take the next exit. I don’t want to be found

‘Cause I just want to know you
I just want to grow old with you
I think I told you
Take me home

You know my dreams always die
And I’m alone left to lie
Awake reviving you

Whenever I hold you, my heart starts raging
While everyone around me seems to be aging
Whenever I kiss you, the world stands still
Whenever I promise, you know I will

‘Cause I just want to know you
I just want to grow old with you
I think I told you
Take me home

I definitely get that hint of snark and romance from this song. Thanks for taking the time to post it so we can listen. I think Flippant Introvert in Love is a good alternate title! grin Made me chuckle.

Thanks, Ember.

I should probably add to my description that the song is not gender specific. I originally was writing as a female persona, but then realized the song works both ways, and is a bit more humorous with a male voice.

Catchy pop - I can see why it would appeal to your teen daughter ( though the sound is from another era).
Good clear vocal. I like the way you brought in the solo acoustic guitar.
Throw away? How often has that been the comment from writers of some of the biggest hits in music... plus the approval of a family member on your creations is always to be cherished!

This is a pretty good sounding track for a "throwaway song"...
Your 13 year old fan must have heard the same merits the rest of us in your fan club hear...
Nice lyrics, great vocal, & production... I enjoyed it.

I don't understand why this song should be a "throwaway" - it's a very nice and pleasant sounding song.

Can only speak for myself, but I am glad that you decided to share it with us!

Wow - what a tune! I thoroughly enjoyed this one. Very catchy, as others have pointed out, and I loved your vocals here. It all flows extremely well, and the lyrics really stood out to me too.

Really nice work - thanks for sharing smile

The song has an infectious late 60's-70's pop vibe to me. I'm loving it. Enjoyed my listen.

Scott,

You've created a very catchy song that's an enjoyable listen from start to finish. I love your choice of backing tracks and your excellent vocal sits really comfortable within them. The mix and its presentation are terrific.

Another one to be proud of!

All the best,
Noel

Whatever you do, don't throw this away.

The melody has a great hook, the vocals are just so easy to listen to, and lyrically, this is so well written.

The voice-overs give richness and depth.

A superb production.

This track sounds pretty good to me!! Excellent work on the vocals and the acoustic guitar for the fill/solo parts was perfect for the song! Thanks, Torrey

Scott,

This is an excellent song. To me it has a nice 70s pop sound. Very well done.
