I wrote this song one lazy Sunday afternoon and was eager to record it as soon as possible... members of my band were away, so I decided to perform all the parts myself... with just my voice. I'm most definitely not a beatboxer, but I now appreciate how hard it is ...and what serious fun it is as well.

The video is inspired by the work of the mighty Pomplamoose : www.youtube.com/user/PomplamooseMusic?ob=0

Enjoy and share!

Cheers,

Ola

LYRICS

At the dawning,
The Beginning,
Did you snare him, glad of tidings.
Did you plot in your heart,
How to rend his world apart.
Was he truly sold on love
While you saw love for sale.

Did she speak it
Pure and candid
Girls who make it,
Pay the bandit.
Like the men in control
or the one that's in your soul.
Those that kiss and tell on love
That wasn't love for sale.

so how come you took what you sought
But don't have it? Yeah
And how come they gave all they have,
And yet have so much more of it.

You can't leave me,
lost in longing,
for true kisses and tender caring,
I might be wrecked or be wronged
But that just makes me strong

And prepared to wait for love,
I'll be holding out for love,
I'll 'be-lieving' in true love
I wont selling out on love.
and not just love for sale
