abe chang: Music

leading you astray (DEMO)

((DEMO/in progress version--from the forthcoming album))
This one is almost done!
First track to be nearing completion and ready for "revenge made easy".

Originally written for my friend "GK"...who tends to like jerky guys.

Check out the harmonies, the sweet bass line, the keys, the guitar riffs, and those beats! Consider this my "Jack and Diane"....if Jack was a total @$$hole.
LEADING YOU ASTRAY

there’s not much left that I can say that would seem optimistic
I base it on the principle of avoiding the clichés

so accuse me of just what you will, I’ve always been a little sadistic
but I’d rather be found innocent of leading you astray

leading you, leading you astray
leading you, leading you astray

gathered all the evidence, I knew this wouldn’t work
everything I said to you just added to the hurt
blame the one that came before for leaving such a mess
in another time you’d be the only, but now you’re second best

I wouldn’t say that I lied to you
but what I said was half the truth
there was no other way

I’m leading you, leading you astray
leading you, leading you astray

there’s not much left that I can do to better the situation
I blame it on the principle of “fight another day”

so accuse me of just what you will, it’s selfish preservation
I’d rather be the one to go, than watch you walk away

watch you walk, watch you walk away
watch you walk, watch you walk away

if you think this is sabotage, I wouldn’t blame you at all
it wasn’t planned but that’s how things always seem to fall
I’ll tell you all the sweetest things before it turns to dust
given time it could be love, but now it’s only lust

I wouldn’t say that I lied to you
but I find it hard to tell the truth
there was no other way

I’m leading you, leading you astray
leading you, leading you astray
