“K-E” at the Duplex

Watch Hana Slevin debut my song “K-E” during the Princeton Arts Alumni Cabaret at the Duplex.  Enjoy!



K-E
Music and Lyrics by Brandon Michael Lowden

I don’t know a whole lot about her.
She’s into designer shoes.
She smells like Head and Shoulders,
And she tastes like top-shelf booze.

She left me untangled and breathless.
She left me confused and scared.
She left before I woke up,
And I’m not sure if I cared.

‘Cause I never want to see her again.
And it’s all I want to see her again.
And I only remember the first two letters of her name,
But I will never be the same.

Kelly or Kerri or Kendra,
What did you do to me?
I’m such a mess.
Kelsey or Kendall or Kesha,
How’d you get through to me?
You’re perfect, I guess.
And you prob’ly know even less of my name,
But I don’t give a damn.
‘Cause you might be the only one
Who’s ever really known who I am.

I’m not a spontaneous person.
I need things to stay as planned.
That’s why I keep my lovers
At arm’s length and kind of bland.

I’d never hook up with a stranger.
She isn’t my type at all.
So why am I obsessing
Over whether she will call?

‘Cause this isn’t how I thought it would feel.
And it’s how I always thought it would feel.
And I’m asking myself, is it still a mistake if I felt no shame?
‘Cause I will never be the same.

Kelly or Kerri or Kendra,
What did you do to me?
I’m such a mess.
Keira or maybe Ketura,
How’d you get through to me?
You’re perfect, I guess.
And you prob’ly know even less of my name,
But I don’t give a damn.
‘Cause you might be the only one
I’ve ever really shown who I am.

Give me one more opportunity to show you why you need to come back.
Give me one more opportunity to show you what I like in the sack.
Give me one more opportunity to learn I’m not afraid of surprise.
Give me one more opportunity to be the person I became when I looked in your eyes.

K-E-mn-mn-mn-mn-mn-mn…
K-E-mn-mn-mn-mn-mn-mn…
K-E, I don’t know what comes next.
Going crazy, you got me so perplexed.
Hey now, K-E, what’s next? I just don’t know.
Be my baby, don’t have to take it slow.
K-E, I don’t know what comes next.
Hopin’ maybe you’re similarly vexed.
Hey now, K-E, what’s next? I just don’t know.
So what say we find out where this will go.
Come on, K-E, let’s find out where this will go.
Come on, K-E, let’s find out where this will go.
