I Really Gotta Know

This songwriter demo was recorded in 1984 and is the only time I’ve ever been in a studio with “real” musicians where I was completely in control. That’s the late, great Keith Allen on two guitar parts, Marcus Webster on percussion, and Phil Hersch playing bass and engineering. I wisely only sing. This is the only time I’ve ever achieved the kind of “sound” I was going for. As a songwriter (but not a performer) I’m still looking for “real” musicians to record this and make it a hit.

I Really Gotta Know

Been goin’ round in circles
Chasin’ love’s rainbow
Sometimes that rainbow’s seems like a circle
Got no place to go
Sometimes it’s dizzy like a spiral
Spins so fast you can’t keep hold
But if she’s my rainbow
I really gotta know

Is she real
Or just a day dream
I’ been lookin
High and low
For that right one
Who’s cute and smart and crazy
If she’s the one
I really gotta know

Is she for real
Or is she just a day dream
It seems so right
Just talkin’ on the phone
She’s got heart
She’s cute and smart and crazy
If she’s the one
I really gotta know

We met at a party
I smiled, she said hello
It was just like in the movies
Or some corny TV show
We talked about the weather
And what it’s like to be alone
We made a date to get together
Just to see how it goes

Is she real
Or is she just a day dream
It seems so right
When you’re livin’ with that hope
Our lives are short
And we’re not gettin’ any younger
If she’s the one
I really gotta know

Is she real
Or is she just a day dream
It seems so right
Just talkin’ on the phone
She’s got heart
She’s cute and smart and crazy
If she’s the one
I really gotta know
I really gotta know
Is she the one
I really gotta know
