Good Nights demo

lyrics:

Blame it on the green light

you're turning me on

blame it on the yellow light 

when you start to yawn

yeah you just yawn

what's going on?

you always yawn

what's going on?


Blame it on the red light

when you say good night

can't forget those good nights

can't forget those good nights

on the road

you're so nice to know


Is it you inside my head?

is it you or what mama said?

am i mislead

by your color changing eyes?

They say it's time for bed

and I can't sleep here tonite


but thats alright


Blame it on the red light

when you say good night

can't forget those good nights

won't forget those good nights

on the road

you're so nice to know

 

 


a lil' background for the Road collab: the song was started on a long car drive home from an unrequited love situation (traffic light idea).  The twist here is that where once I was hung up by a situation like this ("whoa is me"), now I felt at peace.  It literally was like "well good night", I got on the road, and then just started feeling good like - "hey, she's really nice to know.  I had a great time tonight regardless how it ended".  life goes on.

so, that's the shift I try to convey in the chorus.

I tried the song in a couple of musical formats and thought I'd give it a shot with theTenant's inspiringly sweet tune and there ya have it
