(A2Z) What I Wanted

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Who, Whitney Houston, Whitesnake… What a Wonderful World, Words, What About Me, Whiskey Lullaby…Waltz, woodwind, Wurlitzer, Wicked… who should I listen to first?

This post will not be what I originally envisioned.  I learned back on the letter T that I cannot share music unless I have a premium plan over the free one.  I apologize that you will not be able to hear this.

About a million years ago… ok. It really wasn’t that long ago, more like 35-36 years ago.  I have talked about some of my favorite local musicians before.  There was one band where I friended the guitar player and we talked often.  Long story short, I gave him a few of my lyrics I had written in my love of writing with hopes he might find one acceptable as a song.

A few months later he sent me a cassette tape (I did say this was a while ago) and he had added a few lyrics and altered just a couple of words and set it to music!  It was such a rush to hear words I had written actually sung.  I think he did a great job on it and I did eventually switch it to a CD and would share the song here if I could.  Since I don’t have that ability, here are a couple of the other songs I have listed along with my original lyrics that provided the seed for “We Tamed the Night.”

We’ll Tame This Night

I know it’s wrong

but it feels so right

and with that look in his eyes

I’ll believe all of his lies

because before too long

together we’ll tame this night

***

I was sitting at the bar

when he walked in.

He was alone like me

and he flashed me a grin.

Before he sat down with me

I bought him a drink

and after we’d talked awhile

my mind began to think.

***

that I know it’s wrong

but it feels so right

and with that look in his eyes

I’ll believe all of his lies

because before too long

together we’ll tame this night

***

We drove through town

and he showed me each sight,

all the wonders of the city

brightened at night.

Then as he parked the car

with a smile on his face

my mind had doubts

but I knew this was the place.

***

And I knew it was wrong

but it felt so right

and with that look in his eyes

I believed all of his lies

because it didn’t take too long

until together we tamed this night.
