The Song Lyric Archives #2: Desperate Man, Desperate World

I wrote the song below with a country vibe in mind. Think John Michael Montgomery. 🙂


DESPERATE MAN, DESPERATE WORLD

VERSE 1:

JUST A GIRL, WALKING BY
CAUGHT UP IN THE CORNER OF MY EYE
WAS SHE SHORT OR WAS SHE TALL
WAS SHE EVEN THERE AT ALL
I JUST DON’T KNOW, I COULD NOT SAY
IF SHE WAS, WILL SHE EVER COME BACK MY WAY
I’LL NEVER KNOW IF I SIT HERE AND WAIT
BETTER START LOOKING BEFORE IT’S TOO LATE

CHORUS:

I’M A DESPERATE MAN, IT’S A DESPERATE WORLD
I’M HOPING TO FIND THAT PERFECT GIRL
I KNOW IT WON’T BE EASY, BUT I’VE GOT TO TRY
AND I’LL NEVER GIVE UP UNTIL I DIE
I’M A DESPERATE MAN, IT’S A DESPERATE WORLD

VERSE 2:

MET THIS GIRL JUST THE OTHER DAY
SAID HELLO IN THE USUAL WAY
WE HIT IT OFF RIGHT FROM THE START
BY THE END OF THE DAY SHE’D STOLEN MY HEART
CAN I TRUST A GIRL WITH A HEART LIKE MINE
IS IT TOO LATE TO TURN BACK TIME
MAYBE IT’S THE WAY SHE LOOKED AT ME
OR MAYBE I’M JUST GETTING IN A HURRY

CHORUS:

I’M A DESPERATE MAN, IT’S A DESPERATE WORLD
COULD I HAVE FOUND THAT PERFECT GIRL
IS SHE REALLY JUST WHAT SHE SEEMS
I THINK SHE STEPPED RIGHT OUT OF MY DREAMS
IT’S HARD TO TELL, I’LL JUST WAIT AND SEE
IF SHE’S THE ONE MADE JUST FOR ME
I’M A DESPERATE MAN, IT’S A DESPERATE WORLD
SEARCHING MY WHOLE LIFE FOR THAT PERFECT GIRL…
