TABLE FOR TWO
I want to be with you alone tonight
With all the little things that make me feel alive
Like sharing a plate of olives
On a terrace with a view
Don’t say your busy, baby, don’t say you’re tired
Don’t say you’re anything, I need you by my side
You been keeping my world together
While I’m howling at the moon
Oh baby, I can’t get my mind off you
Things that you say, things that you do
I must lay these eyes on you tonight
At a table for two
I promise nothing but the best of times
I’ll buy you roses from that crazy little guy
I’ll say “yes” to the wandering trio
And they’ll play your favorite song
I want you like a salad with big ripe tomatos and feta
I need you after work tonight
The sooner the better
I love your lips, I love the way you chew
I love that v-neck and your butterfly tatoo
I love swishing the wine around our mouths
And kissing like fools
Not too much to say about this one. If you have ever been down to Barcelona's Port Vell, you have probably lived the unique experience of eating at one of the many outdoor terraces along the beach or facing the harbor. While I have been asked by both my wife and my mother-in-law exactly whom I was writing about, this song is most definitely written for my wife Katherine. Our relationship began at downtown terraces and tapas bars, and there is still something so satisfying about sharing a plate of olives at a table with a view. The reference to a butterfly tattoo came from first book of Stieg Larsson's awesome trilogy, "The Girl With The Dragon Tatoo", which I was reading when I wrote the song.
Pere Foved provides the tasteful drum work that drives this song. Andreu Martinez brings the song to another level with his fine acoustic solo and detail work thereafter, and Peter Calo helps the song up and out with his subtle but deadly muted string electric guitar effect in the final verse and choruses. Thanks to both of them for their gracious input.
