Parralox - Heart of Glass

Heart of Glass

Written by Deborah Harry and Chris Stein

Verse 1
Once I had a love and it was a gas
Soon turned out had a heart of glass
Seemed like the real thing, only to find
Mucho mistrust, love's gone behind

Verse 2
Once I had a love and it was divine
Soon found out I was losing my mind
It seemed like the real thing but I was so blind
Mucho mistrust, love's gone behind

Bridge 1
In between
What I find is pleasing and I'm feeling fine
Love is so confusing there's no peace of mind
If I fear I'm losing you it's just no good
You teasing like you do

Verse 3
Once I had a love and it was a gas
Soon turned out had a heart of glass
Seemed like the real thing, only to find
Mucho mistrust, love's gone behind

Bridge 2
Lost inside
Adorable illusion and I cannot hide
I'm the one you're using, please don't push me aside
We could've made it cruising, yeah

Yeah, riding high on love's true bluish light

Ohh woah

Verse 4
Once I had a love and it was a gas
Soon turned out to be a pain in the ass
Seemed like the real thing only to find
Mucho mistrust, love's gone behind

Repeat Bridge 1

Ohh woah

Additional Information:

Recorded vocals from 1630 to 1651 with Louise,
Just got back from Japan, and I'm right back into the old routine.
Louise has come over to record vocals for our usual Thursday vocal session.
Se came at 1530, and we chatted for half an hour and caught up on everything.
We recorded all the vocals for the track in about 50 minutes.
I walked Louise to the train station and then picked up Sharyn from her walk. I had Jack and Roger with me and of course I left Roger with Sharyn.
I cam back to the studio and was going to eat, but decided I should finish the vocal editing, because if I don't do it now, then I'll lose the momentum.
IU mean I have so many new songs with vocals that need compiling and editing that I can't really let them pile up.
So it's now 2019 hours and about an hour ago I realised we (I?) forgot to record the "pain in the ass" line in verse 4. So I've recorded my vox and used them as a placeholder. I'll see what Louise thinks. It might be neat to leave them in there as people wouldn't expect a male voice appearing out of nowhere. Unless this was The Amityville Horror, which it isnt. But it could be ;)
I've had Blake's 7 playing in the background whil editing the song, so bonus points for those of you that find the two Easter Eggs in the track.
This backing version was originally recorded 3 weeks ago for Jane Badler, but we decided to go with another cover version. So rather than let it go to waste I thought it could be great song for Holiday '18. Louise has done a great job, as usual.
OK, NOW it's time to eat. I'm on the 18/6 fasting plan at the moment, and realise I haven't eaten since yesterday. No wonder I have a headache.
