about

This recording happened about a year ago, but the song idea had been bouncing around my head for years before that. It just took the right group of people to bring it to life (thanks Tiffanie for making that happen!) It's a song about possession and fantasy—about love when it isn't simple. The song is simple though, that's what I like about it.

lyrics

you can make the sun blush over the sand
you can make the moon stand still above the dam
you can make the stars fall out of the sky
but if you make me love you, i'm gonna make you mine

you can make me search for some magic fix
you can make me work one of your daddy's oil rigs
you can make me crazy with your ever-wandering eye
but if you make me love you, i'm gonna make you mine

you can make a little mist rise above the lake
you can make the chef bring us free dinner by mistake
you can make me bleed for your amusement babe that's fine
but if you make me love you, i'm gonna make you mine

make you into a signal i alone receive
blinking in the shadow of my heart
make you into a spirit i alone believe
until even the words of kindness
that you offer me will be my words

you can make the night as cozy as a bed
you can make a drink to unsuffocate my head
you can make your arms into a soft, familiar sign
but if you make me love you, i'm gonna make you mine
