Mockingbirds & Jealous Folk

from A bridge for burning by Dave McPherson



This song is a sweet little honest song. I'm tea;;y happy with the overdubs & lead vocal. This is my mate Hadleigh Ford's favourite song of mine.


Just because I'm unstable doesn't mean I'm incapable
It doesn't mean I'm not saveable
All the boys say and all the girls say
Don't you think you've had enough?
I must be greedy, greedy
Simply greedy in the grand old English way

You seem to think that I'm arrogant
But you don't see me behind closed doors
Climbing the walls feeling so insignificant
I know, I know I can get a little bit complacent
All the boys say and all the girls say
That guy thinks he's something else
Maybe I'm timid and lately you're intimidating me
Socially frigid in the grand old English way

I fall from grace every single day
Just so that you can't possibly hurt me
I'm grinning in my own stupid little way
'Cause my smile disgusts you
Get irrationally jealous, misguidedly zealous
Overtly precious in the grand old English way

Music |ˈmyo͞ozik|
1 the art or science of combining vocal or instrumental sounds (or both) to produce beauty of form, harmony, and expression of emotion.

Music is my life. An oft-used cliché yet nonetheless true for me. I've devoted most of my existence to exploring it in every way & in turn it has enabled me to travel the world & meet new friends all over.

Hope you like my sounds!
