I'm KC, The People's Bard. I write songs and poems inspired by the people I meet on the internet. Ask, and I’ll write something for you.

  • Tonight’s inspiration comes from a question posted by ccalypso:

    What should I do if the guy I’m falling for acts completely different when he’s with his friends?

    I don’t know what the asker meant by “completely different,” but I imagined the situation where one person is embarrassed by the relationship for some reason, and so tries to hide the truth of it from friends and family. Still working out the kinks on this Tascam; should probably sing this in another key (and in a room where I don’t have to just whisper because someone else is sleeping haha); but got to go to work in 6 hours, so I had to just get this posted. Enjoy!

         Be your prize

    Baby, I know it’s true:
    You like to hold my hand.
    But you act so strange
    with your friends around.

    Are you afraid,
    I’ll say the wrong thing.
    That they won’t like me
    or the way I sing?

    Baby, I’m good enough to show off.
    Darlin’, I want to be your prize.
    I know I can make your friends laugh.

    Babe, I know it’s true,
    you like to answer my calls.
    But when someone’s home,
    you disconnect the phone.
    Are you afraid,
    I’ll say the wrong thing.
    That they won’t like me
    or the way I sing?

    Baby, I’m good enough to show off.
    Darlin’, I want to be your prize.
    I know I can make your mother smile.

    Babe, I know it’s true:
    You love me too.
    But you hide your heart
    away in the dark.
    Are you afraid,
    I’ll say the wrong thing.
    That they won’t like me
    or the way I sing?

    I wrote a poem about my search for love and made a video. I hope you like it, friends. “These are my hands”, by Kavalier Calm.
