Arison Cain - Be Forward With Me (Acoustic)

Lyrics:

you have got to be
a little forward with me.
i would hate to watch
you leave again, (leave again)
but you have got to understand
i like what i see.
i just can’t seem to
get the words over, girl.
no, i can’t seem to get
the words over, girl.

lately, maybe i’ve been
coming off a little bit shy.
that’s not for lack of trying.
frankly, maybe i’m just
not a very typical guy.
that’s nothing i’m denying, but…

you have got to be
a little forward with me.
i would hate to watch
you leave again, (leave again)
but you have got to understand
i like what i see.
i just can’t seem to
get the words over, girl.
no, i can’t seem to get
the words over, girl.

what can i do
to make it any more obvious
that you are all
i’m wondering about?

you have got to be
a little forward with me.
i would hate to watch
you leave again, (leave again)
but you have got to understand
i like what i see.
i just can’t seem to
get the words over, girl.
no, i can’t seem to get
the words over, girl.

This is perhaps my favorite live video ever. It’s “Optimistically Sober” from our show in Burbank last month, and it features our good friend Adam Coursen on third guitar, so it’s loud, and fucking chaotic. Also, the lighting gets all soft and sensual after I smooch the camera right around 1:04. Enjoy!

Lyrics:

You can call me optimistically sober,
but that’s the only way I know
to win you over,
and if the nights that
I had given you were longer,
I would have been happy to admit
that I was wrong, girl,
and it’s a shame I let you
think I didn’t want to,
it was my pride that I was
sick of holding onto, oh girl,
but now, I’m brokenhearted.

From one lover to another,
I’ll give your heart another
moment to recover.

CHAOTIC INTERLUDE

And if recovery is
going to exhaust you,
I would hate to let you
feel like I had lost you,
oh girl, but now I’m broken.
