Song: Chapter Two

FAWM 2018

Album: FAWM 2018
Track: #26

For the second time this FAWM (see also "I Hear Rain"), out of my brain/psyche/insanity has come some solid 80s country gold. I really have no idea where either came from. While I grew up on 80s country, I had never written a true country song _ever_, yet out this and "I Hear Rain" have come, and I love them both. :-D I really can't emphasize enough how this song just wrote itself. I mean, Waylon Jennings died 16 years ago on my birthday (which conveniently happens during FAWM), so maybe he jumped into me for one last hit. Not that I'm comparing myself to Waylon Jennings (I wouldn't dare), it just sounds like Waylon Jennings to me.

Hear the chug a lug
On the drum
Marching on to the beating of my heart love

A tiny little
Piece of my soul
Pouring out like a screaming river of fire love

Are you listening?
What do I need to do to get through to you?
Are you listening?
You are the hero of my chapter two!

Hear the blistering rolls
On my banjo
Dancing with the energy of fireflies love

Come on listen to me wail
On my guitar
The enthusiasm of a thousand admirers love

Are you listening?
What do I need to do to get through to you?
Are you listening?
You are the hero of my chapter two!

Hear my slightly nuanced
Melody
Leading you to adventure in my arms love

Are you listening?
What do I need to do to get through to you?
Are you listening?
You are the hero of my chapter two!
