Blinded

written by emma moore

He keeps secrets, you see mystery 
He keeps you hidden, you see privacy

He keeps lying but you still see honesty
He makes decisions, you just agree

You're blinded by a love that you've created 
In your mind he can't do you any wrong
You're blinded by a dream and by a fantasy 
You fell in love with someone he'll never be 


He says he's broke, you will always pay
He says bite your tongue and you obey
He keeps leaving but he never stays away
He's way too happy in the bed you both made 

You're blinded by a love that you've created 
In your mind he can't do you any wrong
You're blinded by a dream and by a fantasy 
You fell in love with someone he'll never be


You make yourself half so you can make him whole
It drives me crazy how you just don't know 


You're blinded by a love that you've been craving

He can't satisfy this need you have for saving

You're blinded by a love that you've created 
In your mind he can't do you any wrong
You're blinded by a dream and by a fantasy 
You fell in love with someone he'll never be.

Best enjoyed with; 

Your favourite beer -
Sit your pal down for some
hard truths, but soften the
blow with a cold one.

*not compulsory, of course.

Inspired by;

Todays playlist is made up songs I was listening to when planning the production of this number, and also whilst writing it.

Tomorrow is a song that will be brand new to you. This is one I've never yet played live, or online, so you're the first to hear it.

Rejected Lyrics

He's last minute, you see spontaneity
He's got opinions, you just agree. 

-

You fell in love with a man he'll never be

-

It drives me crazy

'Cause I think that you know

You're blinded

-

You're blinded by a dream
and by a fantasy

It's time for you to wake up
and face reality

Blinded was originally a whole other song, that I'm devastated I can't find anymore. The chorus melody and chords are exactly the same as the original, and I remember it being about the same people, but I can't remember a single line of it. I know it had another title,
one word again, but there's absolutely
no memory of it whatsoever. 

See you tomorrow for day three!
