Somebody Stop Me

from by Shapeshifters



This was a fun song to play. One of those riffs that makes you realize how wonderful it all was when you first started playing guitar. I played a Les Paul through a 100 watt Marshall Super Lead ll on this one.


Was it all just a waste of time
Up at your house with the Venetian blinds
Drawn so tight that the neighbors can't see
You compromise position in the way that you scream
Somebody else's name in my ear
I should leave you, Honey, but that seems so severe

Somebody stop me before I love again
I don't know the where but I sure know the when
Somebody stop me before I love again
Oh yeah

I can't believe that the joke's on me
What we had together was the perfect symphony
Now you're begging me without a stitch
If lies were dollars, Honey, you'd be rich
But not rich enough to change my mind
I want to leave you, Honey, but you look so fine

Somebody stop me before I love again
My reputation's mud if we don't let it end
Somebody stop me before I love again
Oh yeah

Was it all just a bed of lies
Your legs were sweet just to get a rise
Now my heart has broken, spirits bent
Can't take back your love that you have for it
I guess one more time won't kill anyone
As long as I'm gone before the morning sun
