Tall Cool One

I vividly remember a day in early high school: It was a crisp, fall morning. I was walking to the bus stop and this song soothed me while I waited for the bus. Not because the song itself had any significance, but because music was significant. I could pretend I didn't hear his taunts and teasing while I had those headphones in my ears. (Do you remember the walkman?) I spent all of my primary school life and some of my high school life being tormented by one particular bully. By the time I hit my junior year of high school, the torment had decreased because I was no longer riding the bus and he wasn't in any of my classes.
 
Music saves me.
 
 
"Tall Cool One"
I'm like a strange cat running in the heat of the night
I've got a fire in my eyes, got a date with delight
Some kinda moaning in in the heart of the storm
I'm gonna love you so hard, you'll want your loving done
Lighten up baby, I'm in love with you
Lighten up baby, I'm in love with you

With my one hand loose I aim to satisfy
You like my loving machine - I like your bloodshot eye
Real gone girl, jumping back with the beat
I'll be your tall cool one with the crazy feet
Lighten up baby, I'm in love with you --
Lighten up baby, I'm in love with you --
Lighten up baby, I'm in love with you --

I'm so tall and you're so cute
Let's play wild like wildcats do
You're gonna rock your tall cool one
I'm gonna say that, I'm gonna say that, I'm gonna say that

You stroll, you jump, you're hot and you tease
'Cause I'm your tall cool one and I'm built to please
You stroll, you jump, you're hot and you tease
'Cause I'm your tall cool one and I'm built to please

Lighten up baby, I'm in love with you --

Move over mister - step on back in the crowd
'Cause she's a whole lotta sister 'bout to drive me wild
Lotta places I've been, lotta names, lotta words
No one compares to my real gone girl
Lighten up baby, I'm in love with you --
Lighten up baby, I'm in love with you --
Lighten up baby, I'm in love with you --

I'm so tall and you're so cute
Let's play wild like wildcats do
You're gonna rock your tall cool one
I'm gonna say that, I'm gonna say that, I'm gonna say that

You stroll, you jump, you're hot and you tease
'Cause I'm your tall cool one and I'm built to please
You stroll, you jump, you're hot and you tease
'Cause I'm your tall cool one and I'm built to please

Lighten up baby, I'm in love with you --
Lighten up baby, I'm in love with you --
 
Lighten up baby, I'm in love with you --
Lighten up baby, I'm in love with you --
