SKELETON KEY ( Lyrics)
I wrote this tune with Tony Furtado in Tuscon Arizona awhile back. it was featured on a compilation album called Graciously, put out by Funzalo Records who I was working with at the time. That recording of it was done at Wavelab in Tuscon and while I always loved the song, I thought the tempo was too fast, I remember it being tough to get all those words out. So I was really happy to re-record it slower, I think it brought out a sexier feel.
Tony's guitar playing is phenomenal, and his riff is what became the melody of the chorus, the feel, and the entire groove -I built some verses and the lyrics pretty much just followed the feel of the music... songs really do have a way of writing themselves...some later make the cut or don't.
SKELETON KEY (Tony Furtado/ Amelia White)
Skeleton Key, Im gonna open your skeleton heart
skeleton key , I'm gonna open your dark
skeleton key, I"m gonna open your skeleton eyes,
just wait and see, I'm gonna make you mine
1. You're so bad that you're perfect, like a two dollar bottle of wine, I"m gonna drink you all up baby, 'til I know you're mine
2. You're the king of a ruined castle, sitting on a throne so cracked, I'm gonna have to come and get you, before the devil takes you back
3. yeah, I'm gonna hunt you, a thousand hounds at your feet nobodie's ever really loved you, Nobodie's made you feel
Skeleton key, I"m gonna make you mine, open you up and bring ya down baby...oooh, just wait and see
I'm gonna make you mine
