March/April 2009 Lyric Contest
“Even More”
Written by Cara Salimando
LITTLE SILVER, NEW JERSEY

Poetry books and dusty boxes never opened.
Walks in the rain and words that went unspoken.
Shared our dreams, made believe, ran away…
I forgot it once but I remembered you today.

Cause the way you said my name
Is making me love you, is making me love you
And the way you touched my face
Is making me love you, making me love you
And all those nights laying sideways on your floor
Are making me love you, making me love you, making me love you
Even more.

Acoustic songs, words all wrong, breathing in clear.
Postcards and when you’d whisper in my ear.
Broken wings, bits of string, the things you would paint…
I forgot it once but I remembered you today.

Cause the way you said my name
Is making me love you, is making me love you
And the way you touched my face
Is making me love you, making me love you
And all those nights laying sideways on your floor
Are making me love you, making me love you, making me love you
Even more.

And sometimes some things never change…
My heart just will not disengage…

Cause the way you said my name
Is making me love you, is making me love you
And the way you touched my face
Is making me love you, making me love you
And all those nights laying sideways on your floor
Are making me love you, making me love you, making me love you
Even more.

  1. “My heart just will not disengage…”?!! Really?!! That’s what rates as second place in this contest? “My heart just will not disengage…”?
    Man! I gotta’ learn how to really force a rhyme to get anywhere in these contests, I guess.
    I mean, who needs a nice natural flow to the lyric anymore?
    No offense, Cara. My criticism is not of your work. It’s aimed at the “judges”.
