The Songs - Goosebumps


*Finished 7/99*
Music (7/99) Words (5/99, 7/99)

The feeling I get
rushing through my head
whenever you come
around

The things you do
really make me sweat
and I can't make
a sound

Reality displaced
with one look at your face...

You give me... Goosebumps
when you walk into the room, you give me...
Goosebumps
when I smell your perfume, you give me...
Goosebumps
when I see that smile, you give me...
Goosebumps...
I haven't had for awhile

You take away
the ability of me
to be myself
at ease

You twist my arm
without saying a word
you bring me to
my knees

Face all red
with one turn of your head...

You give me... Goosebumps
when you walk into the room, you give me...
Goosebumps
when I smell your perfume, you give me...
Goosebumps
when I see that smile, you give me...
Goosebumps...
I haven't had for awhile

Baby, you give me... Goosebumps
when you walk into the room, you give me...
Goosebumps
when I smell your perfume, you give me...
Goosebumps
when I see that smile, you give me...
Goosebumps...
I haven't had for awhile

It's always the same
if I only knew your name

Background:
Lyrics: About that special someone. No one in particular, really. Chorus first written 5/8/99... sat around for awhlie... then verse lyrics in July. Completed 7/28/99.
Music: Chords for chorus first written to go with the words... 7/21/99. The verse chords were already there but I don't remember when I wrote 'em. hehe. Sometime in early July. The rest soon followed. This was by far my most mellow song when it was written. It's way groovay. It was also one of the easiest songs to write, probably even easier than Feel Free. And, actually at the time this was one of the few songs OB could sing and play at the same time! woo! Last time it was played, it was around 4:10 long. There's also a newish, short little intro to the song, too.
