I Could Get Used To This

(C) 2019 Geneva Griffin

V1
I learned to be strong from a young age
Hold my weakness at hearts length
But she cracked my armour, calmed my fears
Soothed my silent sufferin'

Ahhhhhh, I could get used to this

V2
She slips up behind me and hugs my neck
Shows she cares when I'm a wreck
Always has good things to say
Cast shadow on my doubt with praise


Ahhhhhh, I could get used to this

Bridge
When I need breathing room or I'll suffocate
She sends me off for some R&R
Grabs my guitar and gives me space
She don't keep me on her radar

Ahhhhhh, I could get used to this

V3
When I need to talk she listens to me
Trys to stay in tune with my feelings
For a man who'd never get involved again
I'm likin' what I'm feelin' 'bout this

Ahhhhhh, I could get used to this
Ahhhhhh, I could sure get used to this

i like this. A strong hook that practically sings itself and a strong simple message full of feeling. Who couldn't relate to this?

Hi Geneva,
I'm going to be bad and say I prefer this one from a woman's point of view, and a couple of other small suggestions. Overall I like it a lot but you should know by now I am a sucker for a love song.
V1
I learned to be strong from a tender age
Hold my weakness at hearts length
But he cracked my armor, calmed my fears
Soothed my silent sufferin'

ohhhhhh, I could get used to this

V2
he slips up from behind and hugs my neck
Shows he cares when I 'm a wreck
Always has good things to say
and showers me with praise


ohhhhhh, I could get used to this

Bridge
When I need breathing room or suffocate
he sends me off for some R&R
hands me my guitar and gives me space
cause he knows I'll never go to far

ohhhhhh, I could get used to this

V3
When I need to talk he's always there
Trys to turn away my every care
For a gal who'd never get involved again
I'm likin' what I'm feelin' 'bout this

ohhhhhh, I could get used to this
ohhhhhh, I could sure get used to this

And naturally, Keep or Sweep!


Have a goodun,
