Kid


Relationships are sometimes only the beginning of unrequited love.

It is hard for people to be together when it is the twilight hour, neither night nor day. As the urgency of erotic love falls aside, not maintained, perhaps not wanted, and the relationship hollows out to companionship, there is a point where people are neither lovers nor friends but both.

This song details the agony of having your cake, but not being able to eat it.

Recorded lowercase lo-fi. Guitar, strings, piano. An example of ugly music and double chorus.


 

Lyrics

Kid
I don't understand what's going on
I have to know where I belong
If it's by your side
Or if it's being
Taken for a ride
I got to know if you're just playing games

Kid
I must know just where it's at
If we're friends then
Let's leave it like that
If we're lovers
Let's leave it like this
There's nothing we miss

    Kid, I said Kid
    I said sweet little child
    Kid don't you please don't you kid around with me
    Kid don't you please don't you kid around with me

Kid
We're meant to be friends
But you get jealous if I take up another girl
Kid
I'd rather have you
But I'm not going to be lonely in this cold world

Let me love you
Like I love you
Or please
Let me be

Kid
I must know just how things are
I will wait for you
But I'll never be your martyr
I have to know
Got to know what I'm waiting for
Got to know
Got to know for sure

If you want to shop around then
That's OK you know
All you got to do
Is say so

    Kid, I said Kid
    I said sweet little child
    Kid don't you please don't you kid around with me
    Kid don't you please don't you kid around with me
