I’m About To Write Some Bad Lyrics: Part 6— …and that man is me

Track six on my new album, Homemade Nonsense, is a love song of sorts. Sometimes you just need a friend, someone to tell you you’re not alone, someone who will always stand by you…or behind you. This is a song about a Michael Myers type of movie monster lurking in the bushes.

If the lyrics strike your fancy, I’d love it if you considered pre-ordering my album on Bandcamp or iTunes or pre-save it to your Spotify account! Look for the official release on January 7, 2022!

…and that man is me

If you’re feeling down
Like you haven’t got a friend in this whole town
And you don’t know what to do
Cause you feel like no one’s looking out for you
I’ve got some good news oh oh oh
To make you not feel so oh oh
Not feel
Not feel so alone
You’re never really alone
Because…

There’s a man in the bushes
There’s a man in the bushes
You can see him out your window
Standing just across the street
There’s a man in the bushes
And that man is me

You look like you need a friend
Like it’s been so long since you’ve felt wanted and
I know that you live alone
Because I followed you home
So darling take my hand
I’m sorry I didn’t mean to scare you
But life would be too much to bear without you
I promise I’ll always stand by you
Turn around now I’m standing right behind you
It’s just you and me, girl
And no one else in the world
Who can hear you scream

There’s a man in the bushes
There’s a man in the bushes
My love you’ll never doubt
I’m calling from inside the house
There’s a man in the bushes
And that man is me

I’m the man in the bushes
I’m the man in the bushes
I’m the man in the bushes
I’m the man in the bushes
I’m the man in the bushes
I’m the man in the bushes
I’m the man in the bushes
I’m the man in the bushes
