two songs

two songs i’m so into right now. the first is a song that aptly describes how i feel about this certain guy. it’s an old song by brandy, which didn’t quite make it to the top of the boards. ironically, it’s entitled “almost doesn’t count”.

Almost made you love me
Almost made you cry
Almost made you happy, baby
Didn’t I didn’t I

You almost had me thinkin’
You were turned around
But everybody knows
Almost doesn’t count

Almost heard you saying
You were finally free
What was always missing for you, baby
You’d found it in me
But you can’t get to heaven
Half off the ground
Everybody knows
Almost doesn’t count

I can’t keep on lovin’ you
One foot outside the door
I hear a funny hesitation
Of a heart that’s never really sure
Can’t keep on tryin’
If you’re looking for more
Than all that I could give you
Than what you came here for

Gonna find me somebody
Not afraid to let go
Want a no doubt be there kind of man
You came real close
But every time you built me up
You only let me down
And everybody knows
Almost doesn’t count

I can’t keep on lovin’ you
One foot outside the door
I hear a funny hesitation
Of a heart that’s never really sure
Can’t keep on tryin’
If you’re looking for more
Than all that I could give you
Than what you came here for

Maybe you’ll be sorry
Maybe you’ll be cold
Maybe you’ll come runnin’ back, baby
From the cruel, cruel world
Almost convince me
You’re gonna stick around
But everybody knows
Almost doesn’t count

So maybe I’ll be here
Maybe I’ll see ya’ round
That’s the way it goes
Almost doesn’t count

and the other one, is caramel by suzanne vega, which forms part of the soundtrack for closer, which i raved about a fewweeks ago and can’t wait to watch on wednesday. wuhoo.

It won’t do
to dream of caramel,
to think of cinnamon
and long for you.

It won’t do
to stir a deep desire,
to fan a hidden fire
that can never burn true.

I know your name,
I know your skin,
I know the way
these things begin;

But I don’t know
how I would live with myself,
what I’d forgive of myself
if you don’t go.

So goodbye,
sweet appetite,
no single bite
could satisfy…

I know your name,
I know your skin,
I know the way
these things begin;

But I don’t know
what I would give of myself,
how I would live with myself
if you don’t go.

It won’t do
to dream of caramel,
to think of cinnamon
and long
for you.
