Lyrics

McCoy

Written By: Lou Pompilio

An early phone call can sometimes seem absurd.
A curt remark can sometimes even flat your third. Anxiety all day just made me blue, it made wish the foot were on the other shoe, but when I hear McCoy I think of you..
Abalonie at Young Shuns in chinatown, I never thought a split lip could turn events around, beneath a New York pale September moon, we walk in circles like some Daffy Duck cartoon, but when I hear McCoy, I think of you.
And my ears were tuned to hear "Sketches Of Spain".
But instead I heard the girls, shouting something profoundly profane.
I got caught up in the cities sweet romance.
While my heart performed some ritualistic mating dance, and though the words were very few, Seventh Ave. and Sweat Basil's set the mood, because the patterns have all changed now, you know the process has been rearranged now, cause when I hear McCoy I thing of you

Since You Said You Loved Me Last Night

Written By: Lou Pompilio

I don't know where this is headed, but I know it feels so right, and my worlds in such a spin, since you said you loved me last night.
Oh I said this time I'd take it easy, and keep our romance light, but my worlds been in such a spin, since you said you loved me last night.
My heart and mind sing harmony, to songs of you in major keys, and with the rain comes loves refrain, melodic lines played through the trees by the breeze, symphonies upon the leaves.
And I don't understand don't understand the magic, that makes my heart take flight. Still my worlds been in such a spin, since you said you loved me last night.
