Song Description

Back when stalking was cool - a la John Cusak "In Your Eyes' moment - we have a crush that starts at the grocery store and ends with snooping in mailboxes and dancing with photographs. "Can you spell my name? Do you know what it begins with? I can spell your name, cause I checked your mail while you were not home"

Story Behind the Song

80s style pop fun. A stalker crush that starts at the grocery store has the writer snooping in mailboxes and dancing with photographs. "Can you spell my name? Do you know what it begins with? I can spell your name, cause I checked your mail while you were not home"

Broadjam Member Reviews

terrific production - great groove, infectious!!! amusing lyrics that reminds me of the gist of Icon by Duran Duran.

Love how you panned the harmony to one corner -

the clapping rhythm adds -

this is just so much fun - great job!

Lyrics

PRETTY PICTURES

I've got pretty pictures of you on the walls of my living room
You are watching me as I dance naked on the rug
We met at your favorite grocery store,
The one that closed its automatic doors
I got my foot stuck time and again pushing past your cart

Can you spell my name?
Do you know what it begins with?
I can spell your name,
cause I checked your mail while you were not home

You have no reason to be afraid,
I've been clean since the Labour Day parade
I gave my film and camera to a homeless guy I know
But lock your door at night just the same,
in case I start sleepwalking again
That dream is such a beauty, the one where I have you in my arms

Can you spell my name?
Do you know what it begins with?
I can spell your name,
cause I checked your mail while you were not home

That handsome man with the handsome car,
he came on Friday and took you somewhere
I have never been, your golden skin, your golden hair
And I've got pretty pictures of you getting down with that man in a room
Where the patterns on the bed
don't match the wallpaper on the wall

Can you spell my name?
Do you know what it begins with?
I can spell your name,
cause I checked your mail while you were not home
Can you spell my name?
Do you know what it begins with?
I can spell your name,
cause I checked your mail while you were not home
