Lyrically speaking

I really enjoy songwriting. I can't paint so I draw pictures with words and music. My recently posted song "Reckless Hear Restless Soul" is a picture painted in broad sad strokes. My wife Jo said to me "I don't like that song. It's about cheatin". Well, yes I suppose so. But it's not a celebration of infidelity. It's a sad observation on the emptiness and loneliness of an affair. Here are the lyrics. You be the judge.

Reckless heart restless soul Tonight temptation will slip into their lives and try to take hold They both know The price they will pay forever loving in secret just moments they steal away

A tiny voice whispers this is so wrong as they pull each other closer they've crossed the line and they can't go back but in the morning when they're sober the emptiness hasn't been undone they needed someone to hold them till the morning sun chased the loneliness out of the darkness and into the day

tell me why do they love why do they cry are their hearts half empty half full tell me why emptiness that just can't be undone they need someone to hold them till the morning sun chases loneliness out of the darkness and into the day

So, there ya go. Let me know your thoughts folks. Steve Stallings www.stevestallingsmusic.com
