Out Of My League

Lyrics

Preview audio track (Jazz guitar version)
[audio:OutOfMyLeague_timjazz.mp3]

Status: Unreleased

How I wish that I could come to talk to you
If only I knew what to say
And I’m not ashamed to tell ya’ I’ve been stumbling around
tryin’ to think of something more profound than cliché

So maybe I’ll concede
That you’re out — just out — of my reach
But on second glance, it’s worth a chance
But I’m holding back to make my advance

Tell me, what am I you waiting for
‘Cause you’re the girl I’ve been aching for
Maybe you could love someone like me
But perfect as you seem to be
I still believe you’re OUT OF MY LEAGUE

Now I don’t know if I should run in this race
Or turn around and save faceand just go home
Wonder if you see that I’mat a fork in this road
Searching for a sign to show me which way to go

Maybe it’s time to concede
That you’re out — just out — of my reach
But there’s no reason why I shouldn’t try
Got nothing to lose but my pride

Tell me, what am I you waiting for
‘Cause you’re the girl I’ve been aching for
Maybe you could love someone like me
But perfect as you seem to be
I still believe you’re OUT OF MY LEAGUE

Then you looked over and you grinned
And I threw caution to the wind
Cause I was on the borderline
All I needed was a sign

Tell me, what am I you waiting for
‘Cause you’re the girl I’ve been aching for
You say you could love someone like me
And perfect as we just might be
I don’t believe you’re OUT OF MY LEAGUE

    Hey, Nick,
    Keep goin/writing
    But this song is 1.too long with not enough impact to justify it.
    2. It is trivial and so is she and your predicament…
    but…the writing shows great skill, anyway, and that you show a lot of promise.
    Sorry if this is too rough.
    I really mean it to be more encouraging than dismissive.
    John.

    Thanks for your comments Jonjon.

    I actually re-wrote that song about a year and a half ago, using many of the same suggestions you offered, and just neglected to post the new lyrics.

    They have been updated now. Feel free to check out the new lyrics and comment accordingly. I really do appreciate your feedback.
