Doorway Effect

Before I attach the lyrics to the first song I have spontaneously written in Y E A R S let it first be known that I used to write songs alllll the time. Now I paid a whole 36 dollars to write one! Hah! Joke. Get it? Because I renew this domain year after year to not post anything and to not review my old work because it is embarrassing in hindsight? Anyways. Here’s my 36 dollar song. I wrote it about moving to Texas and falling in love and suddenly not hating Texas, and reconciling that with my love for my past (and my preferred climate). The tough part about songs is a person can’t hear a tune when they read the lyrics. And I’m for sure not about to sing it to anyone so. I guess I’m putting this here for myself. It’s meant to be kind of slow and lighthearted. It is also the first draft. It is also an extension of a poem I wrote for my girlfriend for her birthday, which hasn’t made it here yet. So if I post it you’ll identify where the first words came from.

Verse
Ornate blouse
Whatcha doing down south
Not hard to figure you out
Do you need someone to come get you out

Ornate shirt
On my back now
Forgot what I was doing down south
That’s doorway effect for you
And oh

Pre-chorus
It’s too hot too green too tasty
To leave now
All the houses look homes oh
This is a place to grow old

It’s too dark too many stars are out
For me to think about anyone else
For me to look back through that

Chorus
Doorframe
Doorframe yeah
Aint no Orpheus
When I see a

Doorway
There’s no way out
I know I used to have a problem
I know I ask you to hold me
But I promise it’s cozy

Verse
My sweet sweet tea
Forehead’s got sweat beads
She’s looking at me
While I’m driving fast

Slow slow speed
Except on the lanes we’re free
Free from all this heat
I’m sorry it makes me mean
But

Pre-Chorus
It’s too grey too thick too much rain
To give up trying to see
And all the trees they’re bending down
And so are we

It’s too good when our bodies hit the sheets
And the fan cools us to sleep
Please love do tell me
Why would I look for a

Chorus
Doorframe
Doorframe yeah
Aint no Orpheus
When I see a

A Doorway
There’s no way out
I know I used to have a problem
I know I ask you to hold me
But I promise it’s cozy

Bridge
I stay here
Because I’m right
I know you hate to be wrong
But I’m right to love you
And
I’m not going back
Memories are strong
But they’re not themselves
Out of the past

Pre-Chorus
There’s too much love between two of us
To cut it loose
And I don’t know about you
But I run fast I can catch it

And your smile’s too bright to turn away from
Forget what’s behind me
When you give me sun
So fuck that

Chorus
Doorframe
Doorframe yeah
Aint no Orpheus
When I see a

A Doorway
There’s no way out
I know I used to have a problem
I know I ask you to hold me
But I promise it’s perfect
