Damn Fool Heart of Mine

Post 2 divorces, I was chatting with a friend who suggested we date. I explained that I don’t date. And then this short back-and-forth.

She: “You should let your heart lead.”
Me: “My heart’s a damned fool!”

I immediately got the idea for a song.. and the following happened.
* recorded with Audacity

“We’re always playing our part
I follow and you lead me astray
Damn fool heart of mine”

The video and post below is an embed from my Facebook page. I wanted to test that feature.

Story and Song – The Tide – a song about obsession

“That’s a song about obsession!”

I think it was Karen that told me that. I hadn’t really thought about it before but on reflection, I suppose it is.

The Tide – origins

Written between 2006 & 2007 – 2007 being the year of flood, fire, separation, BIG FLOOD! Continuing into 2008 with desperation, divorce, & depression. All those “D’s”
