lyrics

Hold Your Lover Close

Let’s get married in the Spring
We’ll go on down to Rita’s and buy ourselves a ring
Cos we’ve done everything, everything else
And as two lovers grow
If you don’t forget to
Breathe him in and lay her low
If you don’t get under her skin
Then go

Hold your lover close
Tell them which way the wind blows
Take off their clothes, don’t step on their toes
Tell them everything you know

And if things come inbetween
If your words don’t say the things you mean
Nothing comes for free
Work a little harder for me

Diamonds can come loose
Sometimes love can be a noose
There’s no point in being obtuse
Just hold your lover close

Hold your lover close
Tell them which way the wind blows
Take off their clothes, don’t step on their toes
Tell them everything you know

You’ve kissed all the pretty girls
You’ve spun your web all around this ol’ world
And I’ve given it all whirl
And given it all to you
Phases and philosophies
Someone else may take the place of me
If that ain’t where you want to be
Just hold your lover close

Hold your lover close
Tell them which way the wind blows
Take off their clothes, don’t step on their toes
Tell them everything you know
Just hold your lover close

Lo Carmen Los Angeles, California

Lo Carmen has a way with words, confessionary tones pervade her songs; equal parts rolling narratives, romantic rumination and restless, slow burning country soul. Using her gifts for wry lyricism and close to the bone observation, Carmen spins gold from playful twists of phrase, letting her lyrics and gilded vocals shine among the supernatural country arrangements. ... more
