I Used to Be...

video
It took me a very long time to learn to write charts for the band especially a jazz lead sheet for my original stuff. But, I'm getting better at it and since we've had no time to rehearse I thought I would throw the band this song I wrote and see how they did. When I record it, I'd like to add flute into it but after hearing the boys and what they did with it I'm pretty happy with it. Here are the lyrics and I've posted another jazz classic (Everything happens to Me)  below. Oh, and I'm wearing a cute little Armand Basi rust colored ruffled dress with a little bolero and a pair of adorable Sam Edelman platforms. I promise that I will open my Ebay store soon!

I USED TO BE YOUR GIRL
YOU USED TO BE MY WORLD
MY WORLD HAS COME APART      
I HAVE A BROKEN HEART


MAYBE IF I SIT STILL
AND KEEP MY EYES CLOSED TIGHT
AND I DON’T TAKE THOSE PILLS        
THEY GIVE TO US AT NIGHT
THEN MAYBE I’LL SEE YOU   
LIKE I DID TODAY
LOOKIN’ BEAUTIFUL      
AS THE DAY YOU WENT AWAY

I USED TO BE YOUR GIRL
YOU USED TO BE MY WORLD
MY WORLD HAS COME APART      
I HAVE A BROKEN HEART


 I WHISPER IN YOU EAR  
YOU DON’T SEEM TO HEAR
THERE’S SOMETHING IN MY HEAD     
BUT NOTHING IN MY BED
I WANT TO GO OUTSIDE     
I NEED TO FEEL THE SUN
BUT I SHOULD RUN AND HIDE
MY HEART’S COME UNDONE

I USED TO BE YOUR GIRL
YOU USED TO BE MY WORLD
MY WORLD HAS COME APART      
I HAVE A BROKEN HEART
