Parralox - Under My Skin
 

Under My Skin

Written by Dieter Bohlen

Verse 1
You can knock me out
You can take my friends
But you'll never get me down
You can take my job and the story ends
I will never be your clown
You can tease me, squeeze me, push me around
But you'll never get me down

Pre Chorus 1
Take my heart, hurt me girl, hurt me more
Take my pride, hurt me boy, shut up the door
Take my soul and take my money too
You'll never get me down
It must be love it's true

Chorus
I got you under my skin
Under my heartbeat, under my love
[ah ah ah ah]
Under my skin
High on my love sweet
Baby my love, oh it's too deep
It's under my skin

[Can I push a little closer?]

Verse 2
You can take my home
Lead the place I'll go
But you'll never get me down
Baby When I fall I stay up and grow
I will never leave this town
You can cheat me, lead me, push me around
But you'll never get me down

PreChorus 2
Take my heart, hurt me girl, playing your game
Take my pride, I pick up the pieces again
Take my soul and take my money too
You'll never get me down
It must be love it's true

Repeat Chorus

Solo

[Can I push a little closer?]

Repeat Chorus

It's under my skin
It's under my skin
It's under my skin

I had a dream I was in Russia this morning, with Mike and Nicole. We were in the middle of the city, and I decided to go off on my own for a while, and crossed this massive bridge across the water. I looked back at the city and it looked like somehing from Metropolis. I knew I'd see Mike and Nicole later on, and they were happy for me to go off and do my thing.

I found all these amazing shops and then when it was time to go back to the city, I couldn't find my way back, that is to say, I couldn't get any transport. There were no trams, trains or busses. I walked for a while and then found a car that would take me, it was a mother and her child. We drove around the island and they arrived at their destination and let me out,. But it wasn't where I needed to be! I somehow made my way back to the glittering Metropolis and caught up with Mike and Nic.
Then we went to our hotel.It was about 100 stories high. Usually I don't like being that high up, as in my dreams the building usually sway, but this one was rock solid.

I remember talking to a lady there (it looked like Merle L) and she told me how she upgraded her room from a standard to a luxury suite. I went into my room and was disappointed to find it was a standard suite (even though it looked quite fancy) only to disocver a sliding door that opened up into this amazing other room that was massive, with amazing views, so I decided to be happy with what I had.

I'm working on V2 of Under The Skin and just recorded some breathy Kraftwerk type vocal effects. Now I will record the vocoer parts, and then the actual vocals.
I'm catching up with Louise tonight for dinner at 1830 at Veggie Mum in Fitzroy. Despite the filthy hippies infesting the area with their nauseating patchouli stench, I'm looking forward to it.

2253 hours. Just got back to the studio, I picked up Jack from Sharyn's place. She has a sore back and got a massage at the physio. I worked on V2 and added the chorus vocals and BVs. I'm not happy with the performance. I also added some funky guitars. The next step is the epic choir sounds, plus the drums fills. Then the verse vocals and we're done! I'll finish it off tomorrow.
