Song Description

On the surface this may be perceived as a love song, but somewhat subtly lurking between the lines, the singer is expressing not only her deep love and affection for her partner, but also anguish over mistreatment. "Charm me, you don't have to harm me" and "Hold me, you don't have to scold me" allow the listener some insight into what's really going on here. Unfortunately, the level of spousal abuse throughout the world is significant and often women have a history of going from one abusive relationship into another, always believing the abuse will stop...but it never does. This song was written as if it takes place in the 1930's - 1940's where this kind of situation was more hidden and more tolerated. Today, thank God, with the educational results of the #MeToo movement and overall societal advancement, support systems are more readily available to extract oneself from such a nasty situation. Still, it is far to frequent that a person finds themselves in a relationship of truly loving yet being abused by a significant other.

Charm Me - Final Lyrics
Bossa Nova

Charm me
You don't have to harm me
I will never leave you
Alone
Hold me
You don't have to scold me
When I'm with you
I'm always home
We went to Spain we gazed upon Miro
My love for you was never just for show
I'm more Picasso and you are more Dali
We bonded our feelings, darling, can't you see
Feel me
Pulling at your heart strings
Through you I found
my wings
You don't
ever have to leave me
Time will always be on
our side
A reverie of dreams, Paris lit up our nights
Picnics by the Seine made our love seem so right
I realize the changes we made along the way
It happened so swiftly now I want you to stay (key rises)
(16 bar instrumental break)
So Feel me
Pulling at your heart strings
Through you I found
my wings
You don't
ever have to leave me
Time will always be on
our side
(Rubato - out of temp, slowly)
Lastly
You don't want to lose me
But I can't wait forever
My love
(back into temp)
I can't wait forever
My love
No I can't wait forever
My Love
So, Charm me
Charm me
