Ed’s Song

One of my early neighborhood bands was called Jazgor Seazanspan, a name we came up with by taking the first two or three letters of the band members’ names. The lead singer was Sharon Zane and during a break one night I had a conversation with her husband Ed. And that conversation morphed into this song. 

Ed’s Song

 

 

I see you’re ready to start

On your way to my heart

But despite your persistence

My resistance is never in doubt

 

Don’t know why you would go there

There ain’t no room to grow there

I got nothing to show there

And you know there ain’t no way out

 

On your way to my heart

You better be on your guard

You are likely to find that I’ll be close behind

Watching you all the time

You better know from the start

I’ll try to tear you apart

On your way to my heart

 

You shouldn’t let it get to you

Forget everything I said to you

I just can’t find a way of letting you

Into a place I won’t go myself

You’re certainly there for me today

That’s why I just stare and turn away

Don’t want to share my life that way

No one who knows me controls me that well

 

On your way to my heart

You better be on your guard

You are likely to find that I’ll be close behind

Watching you all the time

You better know from the start

I’ll try to tear you apart

On your way to my heart

 

If you can disregard the rest of me

Maybe someday you’ll find a way to get the best of me

But once you lose that air of mystery

I surely guarantee

It will be history for you and me

 

On your way to my heart

You better be on your guard

You are likely to find that I’ll be close behind

Watching you all the time

You better know from the start

I’ll try to tear you apart

On your way to my heart.
