True Love (Ain't What It Used To Be)

from by This Mad Desire



I rented a keyboard for a weekend for Sunna Gunnlaugs to use with her trio. Inspired by her piano playing, I started adding keyboard parts to practically everything. I love it!


true love ain’t what it used to be. you’ll see -i guarantee. in the morning planned the perfect crime. one shot to leave it all behind... my secret weapon! oh what wondrous doors will unlock and mysteries reveal! we can dance on razorblades. there’s no heart we can’t steal! i can’t see you because love is blind but you know you’re always on my mind. we could carry on for centuries. this is our last chance to be free, my secret weapon. life’s hard but expenses paid. small price to be betrayed! you keep trying because love is fair over the hills and over there. my secret weapon! (is you)
