about

Girl’s In Trouble. The intro bounce got this song rolling ... and yes, there are a few versions of this one as well. I remember a crowded cubicle with a college radio announcer and four band mates. "Will you be doing this one tonight, boys? Tell our listeners a bit about the song ...." And it's at precisely that point where the band mates look over at me and give me the deer in the headlights look. There were offers to shoot a video for this one but my then Manager thought it was too soon. There'll be no more missing out on those opportunities should they come my way again. This also happens to be lifted from the second of three versions. It was a bit of a toss up between version two and version three which was recorded at Mushroom Studios. The Mushroom sessions featured a keyboard feel that was just a little too stiff. I really loved the flow of this Inside Trak take. And so we go with it. Full speed ahead … xoRJ

lyrics

She’s much too vulnerable
To be anybody’s girl
I know what it looks like
But she’s not my girl

She don’t need a heartache
It’d break her in two
She just needs a good friend
to help her out with guys like you
In a bad situation
Only makes her afraid
Swears she’s been hurt by
Every contact she’s made

Oh, I break her fall
But I only get a call
When the girl’s in trouble
Ah, she’s in trouble
The girl’s in trouble
Ah, she’s in trouble

Sometimes it’s comical
To see her overreact
I know what it looks like
But you don’t have all the facts

She don’t need a heartache
It’d break her in two
She just needs a good friend
To help her out with guys like you

Oh, I break her fall
But I only get a call
When the girl’s in trouble
Ah, she’s in trouble
The girl’s in trouble
Ah, she’s in trouble

Yeah - yeah

Oh, I break her fall
But I only get a call
When the girl’s in trouble

Whoa, yeah .. the girl’s in trouble
She’s in trouble
Aww, girl’s in trouble
She’s in trouble
The girl’s in trouble - she’s in trouble - yeah

We didn't get to test drive "Friday Night" the way we wanted to. Mr./Ms. Universe stepped in. Our seventh full-length release "Piece Of Your Ghost" becomes available on June 18th, 2021. I'll see what I can do about a single release or two. September sounds good. Summer's coming! Time to kick a few ghosts around ... Something in mind ... hmmm ... xoRJ ... more
