Lyrics

These three songs are from the Blindspot album found on iTunes.  The first song, “Afraid” was written for a song challenge. (A friend invited people to write about a Craigslist “Missed Connections” ad where a man came into contact with a woman and never saw her again.)

Afraid
Robert Boog

She dropped her smile, I picked it up,
Gave it back and got a hug.
“Oh my God, she said, “It’s been a while!”
I’d known her back in junior high,
she’d married well; a monied guy…
“Let’s go out – and talk about old times!”

CHORUS: Destiny, Destiny, Is this true? Can this be happening?
Destiny, Destiny, I’m afraid you might be playing me.

He watched us outside, in his car,
“That’s my ex, stay where you are.
We’re divorced …but we are still best friends.”
My all-time list — our high school fling —
I still recalled most everything.
“Six o’clock, I’ll see you at the Tryst.”

CHORUS: Destiny, Destiny, Is this true? Can this be happening?
Destiny, Destiny, I’m afraid you might be playing me.
BRIDGE The high school prom, her and I, hammock lying
side by side. (side by side)
In home room, she used to tease,
“One day you’re gonna marry me!”
CHORUS: Destiny, Destiny, Is this true? Can this be happening?
Destiny, Destiny, I’m afraid you might be playing me.

[music break]

Got there early, about ten to six
Eight beers, three hours, — not a text.
Oh well, I’m not surprised, I guess. (I guess.)

CHORUS:     Destiny, Destiny, Is this true, or is it all a dream?
Destiny, Destiny, I’m afraid you don’t believe in me.

Morning news: K.T.L.A.
The Ex with cops – is led away
I see her pretty face. ( I see her pretty face.)
They found a note in her dead hand.
The TV lady said it read, “I’m still in love with you.”

“I’m still in love with you.”
“I’m still in LOVE with you.”
“I’m STILL in love with you.”
“I’m still in love… with you.”
whoah –oh-oh-oh.

Blindspot

It’s been 3 months 2 days ago
but I still can’t let you go
Do you even think of me?
You made my life so beautiful
I think your memory alone
keeps me going every day.
Love ya more than I did before
I keep imagining your face
PRE CHORUS: Cuz nothings changed -No one here can take your place
It gets harder every day – for me to win this race
You hit me in the blind spot… of my heart
–it’s like you’ve broken me — apart. I’d
never let anyone –hurt you like you have done.
You hit me in the blind spot… of my heart
Wanna feel your fire constantly;
So warm and glowing my way.
Wanna feel your warm embrace
Your hot arms holding me safe.
When the tears fall from my eyes
I feel so empty inside
Yeah life goes on without you
But it still doesn’t feel right.
PRE CHORUS: Cuz nothings changed -No one here can take your place
It gets harder every day – for me to win this race
You hit me in the blind spot… of my heart
–it’s like you’ve broken me — apart. I’d
never let anyone –hurt you like you have done.
You hit me in the blind spot… of my heart
[BRIDGE]:
Feel like Father McKenzie or Eleanor Rigby…
face in a jar by the door.
Some times at night I look up at the stars..
feeling lonely — wonder where you are?
[BRIDGE ENDS]
You hit me in the blind spot… of my heart
–it’s like you’ve broken me — apart. I’d
never let anyone –hurt you like you have done.
You hit me in the blind spot… of my heart
It’s been 3 months 2 days ago
but I still can’t let you go
Do you even think of me?
You made my life so beautiful.
PRE CHORUS: Cuz nothings changed -No one here can take your place
It gets harder every day – for me to win this race
You hit me in the blind spot… of my heart
–it’s like you’ve broken me — apart. I’d
never let anyone –hurt you like you have done.
You hit me in the blind spot… of my heart.


 

The Dream
Robert Boog

This year held so many things
But I learned to let them go.
It’s not someone or something…
but the hardest thing I know.

I’m not blaming anyone but
I hope now for what I want.
Maybe I will never get it –
but in others I’ll see the best.

Chorus: I’m not lonely but I do live alone
I’m satisfied but I know I want more
Cuz I’m tired and I don’t want to
Play these games no more. No more.

So I listen and I wonder if anyone is happy
I just want to hear blunt honesty.
And I listen and I wonder if anyone is happy
I just want to have “the dream”.

I know I may not be perfect,
But I know I am unique.
I’m no cookie- cutter image
of what someone else should be.

I know I’m certainly flawed…
but I’m fearful of being deceived.
I know I’m certainly flawed…
but this is… ME.
I’m not lonely but I do live alone
I’m satisfied but I know I want more
Cuz I’m tired and I don’t want to
Play these games no more. No more!
So I listen and I wonder if anyone is happy
I just want to hear blunt honesty.
And I listen and I wonder if anyone is happy
I just want to have “the dream” – ee-eem.

BRIDGE: Wanna live and love and laugh
Have a family… You and me,
two kids… and in love.. it’s my
Fantasy. It’s my Fantasy…. BRIDGE ENDS

You will set my heart on fire
Laugh and tell me silly things.
You’ll hold my hand when it’s tough
Smile at me –n- say I’m loved.

I’m not lonely but I do live alone
I’m satisfied but I know I want more.
Cuz I’m tired and I don’t want to
Play these games no more. No more!

So I listen and I wonder if anyone is happy
I just want to hear blunt honesty.
And I listen and I wonder if anyone is happy
I just want to have “the dream”.
