about

Mystery (written in 10/1998, recorded 10/2010) My wife mentioned that I had yet to write her a song, so I did. After hearing it she said, "That's nothing like me at all." (Guitar: Rickenbacker 360 thru a Fender Blues Deluxe)

lyrics

She never sits down with her back to my heart
She’s played the fool before so now she plays it smart
She never lets her guard down, always on the run
She plays me like a game that she’s already won.

She got those longing looks she doesn’t need to say a word.
She’s got that delicate touch feels just like a whisper.
She says just close your eyes I’ve got so much love in side
but girl your love’s no good when all you do is hide


She’s a mystery to me.
She never says just what she really means
She keeps one bullet in that gun just for me
She’s a mystery to me.

Interlude

She takes my breath away she leaves me out in the cold
She takes me by the hand she thinks that I don’t know
She doesn’t sleep at night she keeps her eyes wide open in the dark
She’s got her arms round me but she’s got chains round her heart


She’s a mystery to me.
She never says just what she really needs
She keeps one bullet in that gun just for me
She’s a mystery to me.


She’s a mystery to me.
She gives no clues till she plays her final scene
Every line a ruse every deception a victory
She’s my mystery.

She’s my mystery.

Brett Allen Gregory Livermore, California

I've always been compelled to write.

Early on it was journaling and poetry, but then that merged with my guitar addiction to become songwriting.

The process was always a bit manic, pressured, as if a large gorilla had stepped into my room, grabbed me by the lapels and said, "I will not let you sleep until you write this idea down." And so for years the gorilla and I danced madly thru the night.
