  • I just asked the Tumblrverse for some input on the lyrics; a-green-unicorn suggested “lonely girl in the sky-just trying to find to find an alibi”, and in-laymans-terms said “my initial thought was ‘be free’ she needs to release herself from the pain of her lost father”. I took this input and the request and came up with this song, “Alibi”. I didn’t mention the loss of the father specifically, but it’s there, stopping the girl from loving me; the girl avoids her pain (and all feelings) by staying up in the clouds—in a safe place in her head. I just want to prove to her that right here and right now—with me—is a good time to be alive, despite her painful past. Considering that I wrote and recorded this in less than two hours, I’m very pleased with how it turned out. This song is devoted to lifeandtimesoftheresafrances for the initial request, and to a-green-unicorn and in-laymans-terms for contributing to my lyrics. Thank you, bloggers! Enjoy, everyone! — Kavalier Calm

         Alibi

    I know I can’t understand your pain;
    but you can’t understand the joy I can bring.
    Lonely girl up in the sky;
    I can be your alibi.
    Let me prove to you: you ain’t in the wrong place or wrong time.

    I know you were given a raw deal
    even if I can’t know how you feel.
    Your head’s all in the clouds,
    and the rain’s coming down.
    Lonely girl, tears falling from the sky,
    I can be your alibi.
    Let me prove to you: you ain’t in the wrong place or wrong time.

    Your heart’s in a prison;
    let me set it free.
    (I can be your alibi.)

    The blogger at axelswade said I should write a song about getting friendzoned. I think the friendzone will crumble in most situations; love is an inevitable, unstoppable force. I hope I’m right in your case, blogger. — Kavalier

    He’s the boy of every girl’s dreams:
    you can take him home to mom; you can take him in your sheets.
    She’s beautiful in a small and shy way:
    she’s realer than the rest, not another bitch, Barbie.

    They’ve been friends for far too long.
    Love’s come upon them like sleep: slow, then all at once.
    They believe they control their feelings;
    but feelings like this, they control you.

    They try and play dumb, but they can feel the change.
    They deny it to their friends, say things are still the same.
    But how about that first kiss? And the second one, too?
    Is that something “just friends” do?
    CHORUS

    His mind flip flops like a fish on land,
    and she’s too scared to put the truth in his hands.
    They go back and forth between a laugh and a fight;
    they won’t admit that this happiness is right.
    CHORUS

    For Tessa, who submitted some of her original poetry, which created the first verse and inspired the rest. Thank you for sharing your secret untold feeling with me, Tessa. Enjoy, everyone. If there’s interest, tell me, and I’ll put this up for free download tomorrow. Much love. — Kavalier Calm
