Daytime City Nervous

This number is about a man asking a woman who lives in the country to come join him in the city. She doesn't want to, as the city makes her nervous. Now she has a choice.

I guess I could be more specific about that and say that it's about this particular man asking this particular woman, and I could name names. But that would be invading someone's privacy wouldn't it? Suppose I just tell you that they were real people, and she chose to join him, and they were very happy until death them did part. And that's the truth.



Daytime City Nervous

Daytime city nervous
Sunset country calm
I could sit up all night with you
But I need to write this song
Lord have mercy
You’ve been by my side
Durin’ all these tryin’ times
Take your pick and just decide

Do you want to be daytime city nervous
Or sunset country calm?
Do you want to come home to me
Or just stay here alone?

Do you want to give up this life
We’ve wrapped ourselves around?
Is this where the river splits
Or comes together on higher ground?
You gotta know I love you
I gotta know you’re mine
And if you say it’s still all so
Well, that would just be fine

Do you want to be daytime city nervous
Or sunset country calm?
Do you want to come home to me
Or just stay here alone?

Daytime city nervous
Sunset country calm
I could sit up all night with you
But I need to hear this song
Lord have mercy
You’ve been by my side
Durin’ all these tryin’ times
Take your pick and just decide

Do you want to be daytime city nervous
Or sunset country calm?
Do you want to come home to me
Or just stay here alone?

:o) I like it, great bouncy feel. I don't think he was really giving her a choice though- me and a life of fear in the city or here, safe but alone. Glad it worked out for them!

Of course she didn't get a life of fear. But she didn't know that at the time. Sometimes life is having to select between two distasteful outcomes. That doesn't mean it's not a choice.

Did you write this for anyone, or with anyone in mind?
