about

Still … I Worry (Snack Song). The 'snack song' was one of two almost carbon copy songs written and targeted for the 'Beth' CD. I had a choice, but time was ticking away and I felt the lyrics and music had more of a universal appeal than a song about a girl ready to fall to her death from a forty story apartment building in New York's luxury Manhattan district. The discarded song, ”Angel Gets Her Wings”, would later resurface on the Sweet Tooth compilation as ZEN ANGEL. Something to keep in mind should that track ever find its way onto an album. It's difficult to gauge the popularity of a song based on the reactions from the coffee-house crowd, but I've yet to regret my decision. Christened the snack song by my friend Joanne. We were partying at the house on 12th and she’d keep asking me to play the snack song. I only had it on the ADAT format at the time. I’d play it and then put the CD player back on. Two songs later and its back to the snack song. Hey Joanne, here’s a snack for you … xoRJ

lyrics

I see your wings are clipped again
Do you break every time you bend
Still .. I worry
Still .. I worry

I used to love your late night crunch
You’ve lost the spark - now there’s no rush
Should I worry
(still .. I worry)
Oh baby .. should I worry
(still .. I worry)

I got a picture of you on my shelf
I got a little heart left - keep it for myself
Should I worry
(still .. I worry)

I see you breathin’ up and down his back
Is last night’s lover tomorrow’s snack
Should I worry
(still .. I worry)
Oh baby .. should I worry
(still .. I worry)

I live without you .. I sleep without you
Why should I worry
Dream about you - don’t speak about you
Why should I worry
Oh baby .. should I worry
(still .. I worry)

Oh baby .. should I worry
(still .. I worry)

I used to chuckle up your every rant and rave
But now I buckle up, ‘cause baby, I’m no slave
Should I worry
(still .. I worry)
Oh, baby .. should I worry
(still .. I worry)

I live without you .. I sleep without you
Why should I worry
Dream about you - don’t speak about you
Why should I worry

I live without you .. I sleep without you
Why should I worry
I dream without you - don’t speak about you
Why should I worry

Oh baby .. should I worry
(still .. I worry)
Oh baby .. should I worry
(still .. I worry)
Oh baby .. should I worry
(still .. I worry)
Oh baby .. should I worry
(still .. I worry) ..

We didn't get to test drive "Friday Night" the way we wanted to. Mr./Ms. Universe stepped in. 2020's Covid Cutie. And our upcoming seventh release "Piece Of Your Ghost" has been delayed. Expect it in mid to late February of 2021. I'll see what I can do about a single release. Something in mind ... hmmm ... xoRJ ... more
