I wrote the lyrics to this song with my wife, Carol, in mind. She’s been my pillar of support throughout this year-long project. I couldn’t have done it without her. So let me say this to her now, Thank You darling!
This song is about how two different things become great when they come together. Each enhances the quality of the other. I guess the right word is complement – and this applies to people too. Two different souls who are strong on their own become unstoppable when they unite. That’s how I feel with Carol and I.
I can’t remember why I made so many references to food in the lyrics… Perhaps it was because I was enjoying a steaming hot latte the afternoon when I started writing – which got me thinking of amazing food pairings like cheese and red wine. Well, I think it worked out in the end. Carol loves the song 🙂
With that – I shall officially bring my song-a-week endeavor to a close – 52 weeks, 52 songs!
I’ll share my thoughts about this entire journey and my next steps in another post. Till then, stay tuned.
For now, I’ll leave you with this week’s song…
Way Too Good For Me
We go together like cheese and red wine
Strong on our own, unstoppable combined
Souls so different, yet so aligned
Worlds apart but lives intertwined
Without you I’d see the colours fade
We are the swirls in a candy cane
Like coffee and cigarettes that taste so great
You and me, we can’t be separate
Sure life ain’t all sugar and spice now
It can be a pain in the side now
It’s a blend of bitter and sweet
But it’s what makes my soul complete
The secret sauce
That makes us tick, tick, tick
Chili hot n spicy kick
You’re way too good for me to eat
So thank you for sticking it through
Though I threw you off like a raging bull
A fool who had no excuse
You’re a habit I don’t want to lose
Let’s go outside, take a ride, for a while
Our favorite cafe by the roadside
Love and hugs and sugar and spice
And sweet dessert later tonight
