Song: I Am A Target – “Love or obsession?”

Liner notes

I wanted to write something really campy, '80s style. I think I succeeded in that. The melody is way beyond what I was capable of singing back then, I guess... but who knows, it might be an acquired taste.

This includes my first attempt at using a 7/8 time signature, at least briefly.

Words

I remember the time when I first caught your eye Since then not many days did go by We're together now, and you love me so Whenever you feel bad you let me know I am a target of love You're with me all day long Watching from up above Your feelings must be very strong I don't go anywhere without you by my side Oh baby, you hold on tight I am happy with you, and you'll always be true But you're clingy, I wish you'd get a clue I'm not going to stray, but I need time to play You don't need to read my e-mails every day I am a target of suspicion You're monitoring me Your strange presupposition That I'll go on a killing spree I don't get it, please, keep my freedom alive And knock off the panic you contrive I would get an order of restraint on you But the law is on your side In fact you are the legislative body And you're teaming up with law enforcement I cannot hide, oh Germany Perhaps we're just not meant to be I'm leaving you, it's sad, but we're through And I'm moving in with Holland

I'm not asking you that because I'm so incredibly vain... honestly! It's to prevent generic spam machines from unloading their freight here. Your feedback will only be accepted if you answer this correctly.
