Creative Brief

I had someone suggest on another site that this lyric should be done in a Leonard Cohen style? I thought another option could be in Nick Cave territory?

It's a song about finding love just when you're at your lowest ebb.

 

 

Cupid Don’t Care

 

 

 

(Verse 1)

 

I buttoned my collar tight to my throat

 

Pulled my tie like a noose, familiar old rope

 

Heaved on a jacket two sizes too small

 

Squeezed my heart tighter, soul curled in a ball.

 


(Verse 2)

 

By the church a new scar had been cut in the soil

 

The sky was as dark as the mood that I wore

 

But the sun found a way to reach right through

 

When I lifted my eyes they alighted on you.

 


(Chorus)

 

It's hard to write a love song when death's in the air

 

My head in a bad place but then you were there

 

It's hard to write a love song from a pit of despair

 

It hasn’t all been roses but Cupid don't care

 


(Verse 3)

 

Apple blossom fell from tear-soaked leaves

 

I heard the ghost of a voice or maybe just the breeze

 

Then, in the hall, the noise jumbled, but I was not there

 

Between the past and the present, transfixed in your stare

 


(Chorus)

 

It's hard to write love songs when death's in the air

 

My head in a bad place but then you were there

 

It's hard to write love songs from a pit of despair

 

It's not all been roses but Cupid don't care

 

 

 

(Bridge)

 

I was an orphan in an orchard and the fruit was bruised

 

You were a damsel in a dress, last chances largely used

 

Yet Cupid still found us on this darkest of days

 

I was shot to pieces and then he took aim

 

 

 

(Chorus)

 

It's hard to write a love song when death's in the air

 

My head in a bad place but then you were there

 

It's hard to write a love song from a pit of despair

 

It hasn’t all been roses but Cupid don't care

 

 

 

(Chorus)

 

It's hard to write a love song when death's in the air

 

My head in a bad place but then you were there

 

It's hard to write a love song from a pit of despair

 

It hasn’t all been roses but Cupid don't care
