lyrics

i tuned my guitar down for you
you know i envy your ability to make the whole world disappear, except for you & your song
i envy your ability to speak & act your mind, & play piano like you do, & i
envy your ability to not be afraid of anyone who interests
you & here i am, so lame
writing about you

misha tells me that envy gets me
nowhere, calm me down, turn me on, turn me on like you do
like you do

i must have made you up inside my head, no one who plays that way ever appears near me
if i show up asking who's that jerk playing blackbird it is
only out of some ilk of jealousy, you are playing just for yourself out here
you sound serene, & here i am, so lame
listening for you

oh, i am so not grounded
calm me down, calm me down, turn me on, turn me on like you do
like you do

i want you
i want you wherever you are...
skittish me, this not a love song
this is just a way that i am in
i don't even know what i want

oh, i am so not grounded
calm me down, calm me down, turn me on, turn me on like you do
like you do
& everyone has days like these
calm me down, turn me on, turn me on like you do
like you do

rorie kelly New York

rorie writes songs that are melodic and catchy but more thoughtful and introspective than the average pop tune. Her vocals are bigger than you would expect out of her small body and her guitar playing is powerful and percussive.
