  • I spend so much time trying to come up with sexy lyrics that my brain has become a softcore porno script.

    "P-E-R-F-E-C-T", for my perfectionist friend, Joel. Demand the best from the universe, friends, and you just might get it. Free downloads here. Much love. — Kavalier

    My blog turned 3 years old today. I’ve written almost 400 full-length songs in that time, mostly as gifts for strangers I’ve met through the internet.

    These have been the best 3 years of my life.

    I wrote an original Game of Thrones-themed song on request. Have a listen, friends.

    Wrote a song tonight that playfully discusses the heart-racing nature of love in very scientific terms. If you like what you hear, please subscribe to my channel. There’ll be much more, and if you send in a request, my next song might be for you! — Kavalier

         My Cardiac Muscle 

    You make my cardiac muscle pump blood through my vascular system really quickly. 
    I am so into you I’m panicking; I feel fragile and stickly. 
    I don’t know if I can handle all this oxygen in my hemoglobin. 
    I’m feeling high on endorphins; my neuropeptides are exploding, and I feel fine in their buzz. 
    But I’m afraid a crash is coming when my body can’t take anymore of your drug. 
    CHORUS

    A redditor requested I write a song about his favorite Pokémon, Chikorita. I asked why, and he said now that he’s grown up and working, he’s nostalgic for his days adventuring as a Pokémon trainer; Silver Version was his first love, and Chikorita was his starter Pokémon. I too miss immersing myself into my Gameboy, so I wrote this song for us both. If you like the track, please subscribe to my YouTube channel and feel free to message me song requests of your own. Also, you can download the song for free here. Much love. — Kavalier Calm, The People’s Bard 

    See, this is why I take song requests. I was about to go to bed, then some lovely anon dropped this on me, and I decided to write a song in less than 30 minutes (and took 26). And just like that, I may have a new favorite song. I need to add another verse and a solo, but the concept of this song is so beautiful. Sorry the recording is bad; I had to use my iPhone because I’m not near my 8-track. I think I’ll make a video of my playing this and post it next week. Thanks again for inspiring me, lonely girls. Much love. — Kavalier

         Lonely Girls

    This one goes out to the girl
    no one would write for,
    the girl who gets left behind
    before she leaves her door.
    The life of the muse
    just isn’t for them;
    they’ll never be the focus
    of an artist’s whim.
    But I know their pain;
    my life is the same.
    So I’m here to say:
    Lonely girls, this is my
    song for you.
    And I know
    it may not do,
    but never say never.
    Some prince is on his way.
    This song for you is proof
    that love awaits.

    Three years into writing hundreds of poems and songs for other people, and asking for nothing in return, I’ve decided to ask for something back. I’m at a financial crossroads in my personal life. If I’m going to keep making music, it has to start bringing in income. I hate this, but it’s just true. I’m not going to ask anyone to buy any of my music; but if you would stream my songs on Spotify (even if you just have them playing on repeat when you aren’t in the room), I’ll earn some money. Enough to help my next big musical project and keep my dream alive—my dream of writing for other people. People like all of you. I promise to be eternally grateful, but I also promise this: If you send me a message and tell me you’ve been streaming my songs—and you tell me who you’ve shared them with and how (reblog, Facebook, etc.)—I promise to write something for you. Tell me a story from your life, tell me about yourself, and I will burn a small sliver of my heart as fuel to create for you. I promise. I’m asking you fans out there to be my musical champions, but I don’t expect you to do it for nothing. Thanks for considering. I look forward to your messages coming in. Much, much love. — Kavalier Calm, The People’s Bard
