Brand New Lover
J.D. Carroll-Creative Ventures Music

My baby?s in the market for a Brand New Lover,
says she wants another
point of view.
I told her nothin?s missin? from my good kissin?,
all she could say was,
?I?m bored with you.?

So I left,
went off to learn what turns a woman on today.
They laughed
and you know what they all
had the nerve to say?

?You would if you could, but you can?t so don?t fake it.
Try a little harder and maybe you will make it, some day.?

I told her that I?d take for a months vacation,
change her location and her
c r a z y ideas.
She said she?d love to go but bought a one-way ticket,
I can take a hint
if you make it clear.


She said she had to leave
but gave no good reason.
She?s like the seasons
and she had to change.
I went to tell her once just how I was feeling,
all I know now is that I?m
feeling strange.

Last Chorus:
I tried to say all the things
I knew she would like to hear.
She sighed, gave a little smile and whispered in my ear,
?You would if you could, but you can?t , so don?t fake it.
Don?t try so hard and maybe you will make it, some day.?

?Don?t try so hard and maybe you will make it some day.?
