A Little Extra

The image “http://www.corycullinan.com/Images/Cubberley_96_Show_3.JPG” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.Oh! when I heard that word
I could have sworn it was forever
Just like me to believe it then
Just like me to believe it now
And when it warmed me up inside
I made it all my pride
I guess you kept a little extra on the side

You know I’ll love you for the rest of time
And that’s a given
You knew you could believe it then
Although I can’t conceive it now
As my creation smiles and dies
A foolish beauty’s left within these errant eyes
Yes I expect a little extra on your side

I know that jealousy and anger doesn’t make for such a rational man
So please forgive me if I’m wrong I’m right I’m heavy light awake at night
The river was a hot mirage
I dive head first right into the sand

I know that jealousy and anger doesn’t make for such a rational man
So please forgive me if I’m quiet loud vindictive shamed unduly proud
The river was a hot mirage
I dive into the the sand

Now at the gates of Troy
You pack your bags and check your ticket
Forever and away you fly
A remnant of an ancient time
They say that Troilus fought and died
But oh! the past is wrought and taught with lies
I will accept with one exception:
Clear my skies
I guess I kept a little extra on the side

Notes

On A Little Extra and several other songs on My Oyster, three different takes of the string ensemble were recorded playing the same arrangement. All three takes were then mixed together to create an enhanced string orchestra which sounds three times as big as it actually is. Don’t tell anybody.

Hear this song — and all the songs on My Oyster — at CD Baby.
