04. Serious

Unexpected EP
by Eric Champion



 

Im a sentence spinner
An adjective machine
Spitting out syllables
Rarely say what I mean
All my shotgun statements
Are meant to confuse
Throw the dogs off the scent
That can lead to the truth
And expose me
But you see...

Shes calling my bluff
Shes taking me serious
Maybe I am too
Shes playing too rough
Shes taking me serious
Maybe its the truth

Ive always made an effort
To put things in the way
Try to guard my heart
With a cynical gaze
But shes been staring right back
Spending my time like cash
Shes been throwing down challenges
I might have met my match

You can lie so long
That you take it as truth
Then someone comes along
And reveals it to you
Can no longer hide
Behind a wink and a nod
Now the gig is up
Got to lay down all your cards

They say in every lie
Theres a clue to the truth
And shes been collecting evidence
That shes gonna use
Shes been dusting for heart-prints
And recording my face
When I open up my mouth
Im only helping her case

2005 Luminous Art Media / Eric Champion

Behind the Song:
"We are attracted to some people because they are safe and we are attracted to others because they are real. The safe ones don't challenge our facade and believe we are all the perfect things we make ourselves up to be. But the real ones hold up a mirror reflecting our true selves back to us. Sometimes, it's a pretty ugly image. My beautiful wife Melanie is the 'realist' person I know. She was the first person to challenge my claims (with a precocious smile and a flirtatious wink). Letting someone in your dressing room to see the real you without make up and wardrobe is a scary thing. But you will never know yourself or true love until you do it..." - Eric Champion
