This is my song for a SuperSkirmish (write a song under 1 hour) with theme "Didn't see that coming".
Being from Brazil, I learned to play guitar when I was young by playing bossa nova. I haven't played any bossa nova in decades, but I decided to give a try on the genre for this song. lyrics
Don’t tell me you’re surprised
Don’t look at me with those eyes
You say you never saw it coming
Oh honey, you knew it all along
So many times I tried to warn you
Oh I told you to go back
Darling a life by my side
That’s no life, there’s no path
I hope one day you’ll understand…
And though I gave a thousand warnings
Oh darling, I needed one for me
I never thought that I would miss you
Oh, I’d kiss you, don’t you see?
I choose to travel by myself
In this world, in this life
But once you left I felt alone
I was taken by surprise
I didn’t see that coming credits
