Here’s a little something I threw together, inspired in part by the tempo and lyrics of the Psychedelic Furs‘ She Is Mine’ off their 1981 album ‘Talk Talk Talk’. I used to write a lot more of this stuff, but for various reasons the output has slowed recently. Maybe it’s time for a resurgence.


I met a girl
and called her Kate
Her name was Caroline

She asked if that’s
the type of thing
that I did all the time

I said Kate
I cannot lie to you
When you walked through the door
I lost my head
and had to pick
myself up off the floor

and I do believe right now
dear Kate,
I couldn’t want for more

She gave me a smile
and we danced and we talked
about names and romance and true crime

Our song gently faded
and she whispered like ghosts
I’m not Kate but I’ll be your Caroline
