Week 24 – Every Little Detail

It’s such a blessing to have someone who knows you inside out, who can read you like a book, and who can tell what you’re thinking about just by looking at you…

In the same way, it’s an unbelievable feeling to be able to know another person that well.

This song is for my wife, Carol.

It’s true, you know. There’s no one else in this world who knows her better than I do.

I asked her if she thought it was a sexy song… and she said yes 😉 (She’s blushing as I’m writing this post!)

Every Little Detail
© Music and Lyrics by Marcel Lee Pereira, 15 Oct, 2010

I know exactly where to touch you to turn you on
Kisses like pins on a map, places only I have gone
Emotions flow like water as I breathe in the scent of your skin
I take pleasure in

Every little detail
Is sweet music to my eyes
Every little detail
As you lie by my side

The way your hair falls on your pillow after your bedtime routine
The goosebumps on your arms in the cold, cold wind
The way you bite your lips, the shape of the covers on your hips
I take pleasure in

Every little detail
Is sweet music to my eyes
Every little detail
As you lie by my side

I see colours only the painter sees
I hear rhymes only the poet needs
I read your face like a familiar place
I know

Every little detail
Is sweet music to my eyes
Every little detail
As you lie by my side

    This is a really excellent song. The words are thoughtful and intimate with no cliches. The pins on a map image is very powerful – it suggests acupuncture and a pain/pleasure paradox. I also like the guitar accompaniment which again avoids the obvious, is very controlled and has a wonderful groove to it.

      Thanks for the comment, I really appreciate it 🙂 You’re right, when I write lyrics I take pains to avoid the obvious turn of phrase. Also, it took me quite a while to get the guitar playing almost right, so I’m glad you like it!
