STEEMIT OPEN MIC WEEK 88 - This Love - Maroon 5 (Cover)

in openmic •  5 months ago

Nothing puts the pressure on like having woken your daughter up and having her tell you to hurry up because you're keeping her awake!

I feel a little bit bad but I don't get too many chances to record and to be fair, she got straight back to sleep.

So here's a song that came out just as I was finishing high school. I remember it pretty well because I was working at my first ever job while I waited for my exam results and it was playing on the radio every 3rd song & it's taken this long for me to appreciate it again.

Lyrics

I was so high I did not recognize
The fire burning in her eyes
The chaos that controlled my mind
Whispered "Goodbye", she got on a plane
Never to return again
But always in my heart

This love has taken its toll on me
She said "Goodbye" too many times before
And her heart is breaking in front of me
And I have no choice 'cause I won't say goodbye anymore

I tried my best to feed her appetite
Keep her coming every night
So hard to keep her satisfied
Kept playing love like it was just a game
Pretending to feel the same
Then turn around and leave again,
But I know...

This love has taken its toll on me
She said "Goodbye" too many times before
And her heart is breaking in front of me
And I have no choice 'cause I won't say goodbye anymore

I'll fix these broken things
Repair your broken wings
And make sure everything's alright
My pressure on your hips
Sinking my fingertips
Into every inch of you
'Cause I know that's what you want me to do

This love has taken its toll on me
She said "Goodbye" too many times before
And her heart is breaking in front of me
And I have no choice 'cause I won't say goodbye anymore

Always a pleasure to hear your voice, @elliotjgardner. I'm not the biggest fan of the original actually (or maybe I have just heard it way too many times), so this acoustic cover is a welcome improvement!
