Desperado 2021 GK Contenders - 2nd Wave


This is the sixth installment of the visual concept album series of Another Time/Life/Universe

Mixed by Lucas Rollo, this song has more of a "live" feel and is meant to be more of a spoken word story over music. Like the rest of the album, the song navigates disorienting relationships.

I met you for the first time at the record store
I could tell you were new because you didn't know how to ring up my coupon
I said "don't sweat it man"
And you said "you know what? This one's on me. Great album anyways"

I was shocked
We talked for a while and we really seemed to click
I felt like we were really hitting it off when I made my first, slight move
I complimented your glasses
You were a little put off
You changed the subject until the next customer came
You immediately focused your energy on this other customer

And I know that you don't like me
But I know that I just like to see
You smile

I quickly became a regular at the record store
Doubling my collection
You gave me recommendations every time I came into the store
It got to the point where I wouldn't even have an album in mind
I'd just wait for your recommendation

And I know that you're not into me
But when you're in the vicinity
I smile

I didn't buy anything the last time I went to the record store
I just walked out and left my records on the counter
I couldn't stand you that day
I don't understand
You've been so nice to me
You seem to like my company
But how could you say something so hateful?

And maybe this animosity
Will not become atrocity
This time

I've been avoiding the record store for a while now
Records aren't worth dealing with you
But I noticed you sent me a message online
You apologized and said you wanted to meet with me
We met at your place
We talked for a while
I'm still upset
But you managed to make me smile

And I still think you don't like me
But I think you also like to see
Me smile

We've been hanging out pretty often
Play some of that music I bought at the record store
Play some video games
Grab a drink
I can't help but think
Maybe this time

But I'm not making any moves
Just because we're friends doesn't mean you like me
Just because you said I look cute doesn't mean anything necessarily
Does it?

But I thought I had a chance
When you bought me a pack of cigarettes
And I thought I had a chance
When you accepted my friend request
And I thought I had a chance
When you told me you kissed someone
Of the same sex
But I think I know now that I never had a chance

I saw you today at the record store
You were talking to this other
I could tell you were really into her
You were giving her all the signals
Eye contact, body language
The way your face lit up when she would tell you a joke
And she handed you something
I couldn't quite see what it was

"She totally gave me her number"
"I'm happy for you man
You deserve it"

And I know that you don't like me
But I know that I just like to see
You smile
Show me your smile x
