Here's another one of those love songs for grownups I was talking about last week. It's a lot more uptempo than Your Best Friend but I wouldn't say it's more upbeat.

In fact, giving out a beating, emotionally if not physically, is what makes this guy happy. I don't like him very much, but I can get inside him. Or maybe he gets inside me? Either way, it's even darker than the last one. My idea of a country song.

A Little Down

I like her in the morning
Like black coffee and a cigarette
I like her in the morning
From the shower soaking wet
But I confess
I like her best a little down
A little down

I like her in the evening
Bringin' my dinner on a plate
I like her in the evening
Waiting up for me so late
But I confess
I like her best
A little down

It may not be big of me
But short of polygamy
This girl will be my only
Yes it may be small of me
But she has got the all of me
She would be the fall of me
If she ever left me lonely

'Cause it's when she gets light-hearted
That my thoughts go spinnin' round
What is it I'm not part of?
What is it that she's found?
So I confess
I like her best
A little down

It may not be big of me
But short of polygamy
This girl will be my only
Yes it may seem small of me
But she has got the all of me
She would be the fall of me
If she ever left me lonely

So it's good to keep her guessing
If I'm out with someone new
Yes it's good to keep her guessing
If my sentiments are true
So I confess
I like her best
A little down
