about

The Rhode Island Songwriter's Association has a monthly music series called 'Songwriters in the Round' in which every month four songwriters have to write a song on a theme chosen by the previous month's audience. (They also perform three other songs.) The third time I participated in SitR the theme was 'Stale Tequila', and this song is what I came up with.

lyrics

After the show, I had packed up my guitar
You caught my eye, you were standing at the bar
You flashed me a knowing grin,
Looking so good, it was half a sin.
I felt myself start to fall in lust
My brain began to whirl
I thought it might combust.

CHORUS:
And I woke up
The taste of stale tequila in my mouth.
I looked around, I was all alone.
How could you do it
You were so beautiful.

A few more drinks, and a half a pack of smokes.
We talked for hours, you laughed at all my jokes.
Then we went back to your hotel
And did some things
I shouldn't tell.
And I felt myself
start to fall asleep.
You made me feel so safe
That it almost made me weep.

[CHORUS]

Then I awoke in a bathtub full of ice
You left a note, I had to read it twice
It said "call 911.
I stole your kidney.
Thanks for the fun."
And I felt myself
start to fall apart.
I know you took my kidney
but you also stole my heart.

[CHORUS]
