(The Love Below is one of my favorite concept albums ever.  Andre Benjamin is a genius.  This is one of the marquee songs from that project.  Day 140…)

I hope that you’re the one.  If not, you are the prototype…

For every woman I played “Prototype” for
And then scrapped the project
I really did hope you were the one
I now offer the terrible consolation prize of being part of the mistakes I learned from
Now that I’m in love again.

When I pressed my fingers to the strings
My fret became music
Music meant for you
And you
And you
That remains true
Whether the first line of the song applies
Or the second.
