Lyrics
I wanna tell ya ’bout fortune and glory
It has never been my story
I can’t help but love you even though I don’t want to
Your eyes are so blue, your smile so kind and it’s true
That I’ll never learn, no I’ll never learn

Not that I want to, you see, whenever I’m near you
I feel as though my hopelessness is gone
You make me feel as though I could never do wrong
I want you so bad, so bad that it’s driving me mad
But I’ll never learn, no I’ll never learn

Whenever I’m near you, I’m struck with desire
My mind and my heart and my soul catch on fire
I feel so high, just like when I was younger
Don’t want to get hurt but I’ve got such a hunger

To kiss you and hold you and never let go of you
I want so bad to tell you
But I fear the rejection that I might go through
If only once you’d show me that you’re not the perfect girl for me
Than I’d learn, yes maybe I’d learn

All I can do now is just dream about you
And wish, hope, and pray that these dreams will come true
Someday I may tell you, straight up with no riddles
If I could just hold you, I’s soon have a little

Of fortune and glory, a happily ending story
I can’t help but want you even though it’s not what I should do
And happiness has eluded me for such a long time
But now it’s my turn, finally it is my turn

Analysis: Armed with a brand new sequencer, I put together a series of songs with a bit more complex, albeit electronic. arrangements. I’ve always liked this one because it sounds simple but is a bit complex, combining a traditional rock pattern with some edgy augumentation.
