about

This song was created one night during a songwriting marathon with friends and collaborators Ed Scheiblin and Ben Wakeman. This was a foray for me into the 60s pop/rock style. Writing and recording this song made me think of the movie and song "That Thing You Do."

lyrics

If I told you that I loved you, That the earth was really flat
That even when I’m smiling, I’m pretty sure I smell a rat
Would you call me on the carpet, Could you tell the lie from what’s true
Or would you sit there with that crazy smile and say
Baby, I love you too, Baby, I love you too

If I showed you a mountain top, Then called it a silly dream
And spilled out all my secrets, As I choked back a midnight scream
Would you call me on the carpet, Could you tell the lie from what’s true
Or would you sit there with that crazy smile and say

Baby, I love you too, Baby, I love you too,
Baby, I love you too, Baby, I love you too

In your eye I see the wink of a lie, And that maybe ‘cause
The only mountain top I’ve ever known
Is where my father’s dreams went to die, My father’s dreams went to die

So when you wake me at the dawn, With that look I’ve grown to dread
The one that keeps me wondering, What’s going on inside your head
I want to call you on the carpet, I want you to tell me what is true
But I just give you my crazy smile and say

Baby, I love you too, Baby, I love you too,
Baby, I love you too, Baby, I love you too
