Samarkand "01.28.92" MP3
This song was written in early 1992 and just kind of appeared, fully formed as a wimpy pop song and a new direction for my songwriting. Self consciously wimpy at times, the lyrics were a 180 degree turn from my other notable songs of the time, like Devilcake's ode to @ss, "Pie, Hair Pie" and Devilcake's ode to sugary @ss, "Soft Batch Mama."
We'll be playing this one in the middle of the set at Cafe Bourbon Street tomorrow night. See ya there. You can hold the camcorder.
I care so much and I worry about you
with a heart this fragile what else can I do
I could wrap both arms around
and hold you forever
Hold on to you with all my heart
kiss you goodbye when you go
carry the memory in my hand
when I see you again I know that I could
wrap both arms around
and love you forever
