don't cross the line

I sang it this morning. While doing so I decided that less is more. Longer rests in the vocal line did seem to do the song good, so I deleted nine lines of text and added three words - "but I believe..." - in the repeated part (sort of a refrain, but since it is Blues...). The result reads like this:


I don't know what will come to pass
I don't know if our love can last
thoughts of vengeance, bitter feelings
frenzied raging, your head reeling
sure, that I am the one to blame
I was shameless, you are blameless
but I believe we can be fine
if you don't
cross the line

it was not such a big affair
we just enjoyed some hours we shared
maybe I was in a muddle
needed solace, a little cuddle
what do you want? what can I say?
I'm repenting, you're resenting
but I believe we can be fine
if you don't
cross the line

I understand that you are stirred
I understand that you feel hurt
what we're feeling, what we're having
lies worlds apart from my brief fling
let's talk a bit, let's have a drink
let's get tipsy, let's get cozy
'cause I believe we can be fine
if you don't
cross the line
