Scotch Taped Love

Standard

My friend Doug Duhon wrote a song called “Cellophane Love”. I told him I’d do some co-writing on it, but today I messed around with it and ended up taking it my own way. I wrote this in about five minutes, so it’s just a rough idea at the moment. I like the simplicity of it though, so I thought I’d post it.

For Doug’s version, you’ll have to wait until his new CD comes out. www.douglasduhon.com

Scotch Taped Love

Let’s tape two pictures together
Pretend we were both there
Side by side, hand and hand

Cause it’s been a long time alone
It’s been a long time alone
It’s been a long, long, long, long time

Let’s tape two pictures together
Show it off to our friends
So they won’t worry about us

Let’s tape two pictures together
Mail it off to our kin
Say mother I told you I’d find love in the end

Cause it’s been a long time alone
It’s been a long time alone
It’s been a long, long, long, long time

Remember that night in our twenties
We swore we’d get married
If we were both single at forty
I’m forty-one now, you’re forty now
It seems we both believe we’re unable to love

So let’s tape two pictures together
Hang it up on a wall
I’ve got just the place for it

It’s been a long time alone

It’s been a long, long, long, long time

It seems we both believe we’re unable to love
