Very nice song Al! You clearly are no amateur. I'm impressed by your songwriting and the high recording quality. This song has market potential, I think you're a few tweaks away from having a very special song.

This is a really good song......early Willie Nelson...... ish...

Lyrics

SHORTCUT TO LOVE

You're all I want, in my life, but you don't know me
You're all I see, no-one else, but you don't see me
I want to rush head-long and just tell you
But there's a danger in being so bold

There ain't no Shortcut to Love
So I'll just bide my time
There ain't no Shortcut to Love if I try too hard to make you mine
And if I jump straight in and just tell you
I see heartache ahead
So I'll take the long way round
'Cos there ain't no Shortcut to Love

You're on my mind, all of the time, but you don't know me
I'm afraid one day I'll drop my guard and let it show
I want to tell you how I feel today
But I don't want to frighten you away

There ain't no Shortcut to Love
So I'll just bide my time
There ain't no Shortcut to Love if I try too hard to make you mine
And if I jump straight in and just tell you
I see heartache ahead
So I'll take the long way round
'Cos there ain't no Shortcut to Love

Oh, how can I tell you I love you
When you don't see or even know I exist?

There ain't no Shortcut to Love
So I'll just bide my time
There ain't no Shortcut to Love if I try too hard to make you mine
And if I jump straight in and just tell you
Well I see heartache ahead
So I'll take the long way round
'Cos there ain't no Shortcut to Love
I'll take the long way round
'Cos there ain't no Shortcut to Love
