the question

I’ve been attempting to incorporate the computer, and the internet, into the creative process. Putting up early versions of songs, typing in emacs first instead of first writing in a journal. I appreciate the considerations of the reader/listener as I get used to the medium and find a voice. It’s the message, not the medium, that matters. I suppose I’ll get used to it soon enough. I’m not sure exactly what is passable yet, when/where in the creative process something should be shared. But all things with time. Here is a newer version of “do you really love me”, now more aptly titled “the question”, and written for two parts:

A fool awakens
to show his foolish pride
it’s a fool that asks the question
When he doesn’t know where the answer lies
(male) It’s a production
who ever thought this fool
could ever find direction?
I never thought that I’d fall for you
You are my only one
Am I your only too?
Do you think that we can overcome?
I guess I’ll get the answer by asking you

Do you really love me?
Do you really love me, tell me will you be my bride?
Tell me if you love me
and we’ll drop the reigns, let go the wheel
lift our hearts and sing a song of love
It’s a confession
I never thought that you
would ever want forever
Nothing ever stays for forever true

(male)tell me do you love me?
(female) I love to have you sleeping by my side
(male) tell me that you need me
(female) Isn’t what I give you now enough?

(male) enough
A proposition
why don’t you tell the truth
tell me you’s your lover
tell me who’s the one for whom you’re staying true
(female)I told you there’s no other
(male)tell me my suspicions true
(female)I told you there’s no other
(male)then why can’t I get what I need from you?
Just tell me that you love me (please, please)
Tell me that you love me, tell me that you need me in your life (i’m sorry)
tell me that you love me (sorry, sorry)
Sorry that you love me
That I’m not enough for you
I gave you what I had to
Sorry that you needed forever too
(male) Do you really love me? (please, please)
Do you really love me?
(female) Don’t you know that answer must be no?
(no, no, no, no, tell me that you love me, no, no, no)
