Use Me Up

from Venus in Flight by Krister Axel

/

about

From the Babyhead archives. A little clave, a riff on the acoustic guitar, and a bunch of analog synth. My friend was close with Bill Withers and I was jealous so I borrowed a phrase from one of his songs. :)

lyrics

Ten minutes to make it all right
Before the evening comes
You're too sweet to be lonely
In a life without love
If you're still looking for someone
When the music's over
Let's stop running
And take some cover
Maybe you want to use me up
Maybe you want to use me

Put on your favorite faith
And do what you want
The first one to be satisfied
and the last one to drop
You get lucky sometimes
I've never been so high
I've got nothing to give you
But a hard heart and a soft smile
Maybe you want to use me up
Maybe you want to use me

Maybe you want to use me up
Maybe you want to use me up

Hi, my name is Krister Axel. I am a roots-rock veteran of the indie music scene, and I have a degree in Poetry. I am a published lyricist, composer, and songwriter. I started playing piano in White Plains, New York because our black upright piano fascinated me and my sisters hated their piano lessons. That was in the 80's and I have never stopped writing songs.
