I Hope I Die At Night
(Neil Cotton)


Yes It sounds too crazy to be ever seen
It happens every night in my wildest dream
All I get for Christmas is a cowgirl by my tree
One who takes me places I have never been

She pulls me up behind her silver western saddle
We ride off together as my fantasies unravel
A cowgirl with golden hair blowing back in my face
Saying come with me to my loving place

I hope I Die At Night
We’ll fly beyond the sky
I believe in Heaven
Where love will last forever
I hope I Die At Night


Together we will gallop past my ex girl friend
The one who said to me her love for me was dead
Fly our silver steed across the universe
Stopping now and then to write another verse

I hope I Die At Night
We’ll fly beyond the sky
I believe in Heaven
Where love will last forever
I hope I Die At Night


If my time has come to leave
Make it happen while I sleep

I hope I Die At Night
We’ll fly beyond the sky
I believe in Heaven
Where love will last forever
I hope I Die At Night

Neil! Where ya been? Welcome back! I read the lyrics first and they made me laugh outloud, so I was expecting it to be more of a spoof. The serious musical arrangement surprised me. Not that that's good or bad...just unexpected.

Neil,

I had given your first arrangement a listen but didn't have an opportunity to comment. But I think this is the better arrangement, and Ricki nudged you in the right direction. Nice work!

Best regards,

Deej

It's a really catchy hook, musically and especially lyrically. It has an engaging and infectious quality to it that just makes it really enjoyable. I agree with Calvin's choice of his favorite lines.
