Don’t Be Long (2014)

Written by Achilles Tenderloin
This is a duet. Parenthetical phrase, “don’t be long,” is for a second voice.

I’m goin’ to the city to sell my song.
Goin’ to the city, but I won’t be long.
(Don’t be long) You know I never have.

I’d rather sing by the railroad track.
That’s what I’m gonna do, when I get back.
I’d rather be kiss, kiss, kiss, kiss,
Kiss, kiss, kissin’ you.

I’ve gone to the city t sell my soul–
Tried to deal with the devil, but his hands were full.
(Don’t be long) You know I never have.

I’d rather lie underneath the stars
Than nod to the lies of a bunch of stars.
I’d rather be kiss, kiss, kiss, kiss,
Kiss, kiss, kissin’ you.

I always love finding out that someone connected with one of my songs and wants to share it in their own voice (their is allowed now, right?).

If you choose to do some copy and paste magic on the interverse, that’s cool, too, but I hope you’ll link back to this page on achillestenderloin.com as the source. Oh, and thanks for reading!
