This song, originally written in 2005, has been in the works in its current incarnation since 2011. It’s the story of someone who is showered with attention by members of the opposite gender and has their veritable “pick of the litter” but falls for someone that isn’t necessarily interested in them.
Piano was done by the amazing Kenny Zarider, and the sax was provided by (of course) Wim Koopman. A huge thank you goes to both of them for their great contribution!
So many women, so little time
Dinner at eight and the theater by nine
I don’t know why I’m feeling so blue
Doesn’t my heart have enough to do?
So many women and yet so alone
So I sit here waiting by the telephone
I feel so empty I know it must be true
It must be 'cause I’m missing you
I’ve been told so many promises
Of how my love they longed to share
I’ve been offered things in exchange for a ring
For some reason I don’t seem to care
So now I wonder where out there you are
Just takes a summons then no matter how far
I’ll come to you running with hugs and kisses too
I feel so helpless, what’s a guy to do?
So why don’t you let me help you help me to choose you
Just give me one chance 'cause I’m missing you
