Song Description

This song touches upon these ideas and the dedicated friendships that help us rise out of these moments of being frozen and overwhelmed.

Story Behind the Song

In a songwriting world where we often get boxed into certain formats and ways of saying things, this song is very different. It is poetic and thoughtful and ponderable. It takes on those moments in our lives when we and the people around us are confused and often inconsolable because of their personal situation or their inter-connectivity with the world around us. As the song says: "What about my ears And what about my mouth And what about my gentle touch Helps to warm your darkened night? Often times, just having someone who will listen and talk to us and hold us....can help. Still, there are times when the weight of our confusions and doubts weigh down so hard and heavy upon us that they "smother us" and the people around us. This song touches upon these ideas and the dedicated friendships that help us rise out of these moments of being frozen and overwhelmed.

"Smother You"
Lyrics and music by Chet Nichols (ASCAP)
Copyright 2016/2008/1975 by Chet Nichols/Magic Garage Music (ASCAP)

Tuning: ebbebe

VERSE ONE
New confusions have left you here
Thoughts are blurred and unclear
Dreams once held so near
Have begun to disappear
So, let them fly to the wind
Someone new will take them in
Someone new will be their friend
CHORUS
And what about my ears?
And what about my mouth?
And what about my gentle touch
Helps to warm your darkened nights?
I'll help you fight your fears
And hold you through the bouts
That love to draw you in the ring
And smother you with doubt

VERSE ONE
Mix reservation
With the feelings that we've had
Add the frustration
Of a world that has gone bad
Still we must keep on churning
We must move right along
There is no returning
That's yesterday's song
CHORUS
And what about my ears?
And what about my mouth?
And what about my gentle touch
Helps to warm your darkened nights?
I'll help you fight your fears
And hold you through the bouts
That love to draw you in the ring
And smother you
And smother me
And smother you
And smother me
And smother you
