Oooh, you make me,
oooh you make me,
oooh you make me though I can't say how or why
my will was a bird until I learned to let it lie
oooh, you make me act the way I do
no choice just your tone of voice, it seems to want me to
oooh you make me tense up inside
once chased by this bitter taste as I swallow my pride
ooh I can't see any other way
it's cruel still I trust that you strictly rule will come one day
oooh you make me x7

    General CommentI'm not surprised that no one commented on this song, but it deserves more attention. The music and the singer's crooning make for a seductive combination. It has a breezy, laid back, '60's vibe to it, which I adore because I'm an oldies fan. Like those old songs, this one also evokes real emotions thorugh its spare but imaginative lyrics and vivid imagery. With his description of the bird and the bitter taste in his mouth, it was easy to identify with how the singer felt.

    General CommentDoes anyone else notice that bird until sounds a lot like "burden 'til"? Hmm... it works either way.
