I shouldn't call you anymore

Beautiful vocal track by Allison. One of Roy's best guitar solos. My solo version has some additional lyrics and a vocal track that's significantly less beautiful than Allison's.


Listen: Blue 88's studio version, Ben's solo version , home recording


Blue 88's version:

I’ve spent too long with my head down I’ve spent too long staring at the floor I shouldn’t call you anymore

I’m in someone else’s place I’ve just been keeping his seat warm I shouldn’t call you anymore.

I know I’m calling and it’s much too late But I just wanna make sure that you’re safe

I’ve spent too long with my head down I’ve spent too long staring at the floor I shouldn’t call you anymore


Ben's solo version:

I’ve spent too long with my head down

I’ve spent too long staring at the floor

Now there are food on the table

And shoes by the door

I shouldn’t call you anymore


I’m in someone else’s place

I’ve just been keeping his seat warm

Now the jury is certain

But the lawyers aren’t sure

I shouldn’t call you anymore


You can take all these troubles and drown them in wine

And enemy of that business is a friend of mine


I’ve spent too long with my head down

I’ve spent too long staring at the floor

Maybe I'll head out and go to the store

I shouldn’t call you anymore
