In the Room



nuther day to play the game of worker bee
and carry on until the clock is done with me
but I don’t mind the grind at all                            
‘cuz you’re workin’ down the hall
and if I’m lucky, you’ll come by
and break-up the monotony

    Then you walk in the room
    and brighten up my ordinary day
    When you come into view,
    you nonchalantly take all my breath away

Gotta keep my mind on what I’m here to do
I’d rather spend the moment getting close to you
It’s not so easy playin’ cool
but harder still, to be a fool
by tryna chat-it-up when you’re just passing through                  

    When you walk in the room,
    you draw my heart into the danger zone
    When you come into view,
    your smiling face
    won’t leave my eyes alone


Pushing hard to get
beyond the empty talk            
‘bout the job at hand
and the slowness of the clock    

        (getting nowhere, fast as I can)

Then you flaunt the rock,
proving you’ve got a man   
and to show me
I can be no more than a fan
       (getting nowhere)

Maybe in a prior time
      -or different place
I could have been the one to bask
in your enchanting grace
but as it is, I’ve got no chance
-I’m too late for this dance

    Still, when you walk in the room,
    your turn my ordinary day around
    When you come into view,
    there’s no persuading my mind to settle down

    When you walk in the room,
    you radiate a charm I’ve never known
    When you come into view,
    the smile you make
    won’t leave my heart alone

menko notes

One of the best attributes of music is how it can stir one’s emotions.

There will always be songs that make us happy, tearful, hopeful, despondent, reminiscent, and even those that provide a great escape.

-Hopefully, one of these tunes will take you away from wherever you are at the moment.
