Backseat Love Song

I wish you woulda
kept your lies to yourself
when I had you in the backseat
I woulda given it to you anyway
I woulda loved you anyway
but you told me you were mine
it was just a matter of time
it was just a matter of time
you coulda had me in the backseat
you coulda saved me
from believing you loved me
but you told me you loved me
so I believed
you coulda had me for free
you coulda had me in the backseat
no strings attached
you didn’t have to look at me
like you’d love me forever
like I was your only lover
but you were the kinda guy
who had to have someone on the side
and you had someone on the side
but I
I took a breath and I let you in
I let you all the way in
to my heart
I just wish you woulda stopped
when I told you to stop
when I told you to stop
breaking my heart
I wish you woulda been more
than a beautiful face
but you were just a beautiful face
such a goddamn beautiful man
you coulda had me in the backseat
with nothing on but that smile
you didn’t have to tell me those lies
you know you cut me
with all those lies
you cut me so deep with those lies

I currently live in Greenwood, Indiana. I love to listen to music, books on CD, podcasts or NPR as I work in my studio.  My favorite artists are Andrew Wyeth and Edward Hopper. I love poetry, but only the good stuff that isn’t so abstract I can’t understand it. Abstraction better lends itself to visual art, I think. Stephen Dunn is my favorite poet. He’s said just about anything that can be said about the inner workings of the heart and mind. My favorite novel is Atonement by Ian McEwan. My all time favorite band is The Cure. I love science, and anything that relates to how the mind works. I don’t believe in the supernatural. If I could meet anyone in the world, it would be Richard Dawkins or Steven Pinker. If you don’t buy my art or read my poetry, buy one of their books. It will enrich if not change your life.  My favorite things to do are hiking, kayaking and camping. My favorite food is so common, I’ll keep you in suspense (It starts with a P). I prefer chocolate to vanilla. Green is my favorite color. I have an aversion to planning or scheduling of any kind, and I live for spontaneous adventures! Telephone conversations make me anxious, and I avoid them at almost all cost. I had a happy childhood. I’m having a pretty fantastic adulthood. I have every intention of seeing my 100th birthday, after which I will happily relinquish my guts to the future of medicine. Cheers! ~DeMaris
