When you're in a summer fling and you can't wait for fall...about being too shy/nice for your own good. Rough recording, more verses will be added

I originally tried playing this slowly, as a ballad, but then i realized i was tired of writing slow songs. It's too humid. here are the lyrics:

I don't want to make a list
of all the reasons to kiss you
I don't want to

I could help you clean your room
but I don't care if you see the moon
I don't care

Hey you, I am not your girlfriend

This is about being disillusioned with a person you were previously illusion'd with.
In the lyrics, two things are going on: First, my realization that I was trying to convince myself that I was romantically inclined toward this person, second, my willingness to remain casual acquaintances with someone, and subsequent inability to summon deeper feelings than that. For instance, I do not care if they notice the beautiful full moon. And that, if anything, is indicative of the end of a fling as anything else...

In the music, it's a short riff on acoustic guitar, 3 chords layered over, and a random chime/glockenspiel that i found in my house.

IngeChiles, all I have to say is that you have some great stuff going on and I love it!

This is pure. Great job; short, tangy, otherworldly goodness. I imagine an all-woodland creature band performing this song: a possum hanging upside down by her tail strumming the guitar, a yearling plek-plek-plekking the glock with his tiny antlers, and a squirrel in a poodle skirt singing into an acorn microphone. Anyway, all my kooky images aside, this is really effective and lovely.
