#SLS ~ 12/27/20

Jim prompts us with Odor/Scent/Smell/Taste. I immediately thought of the Savage Garden song “I Want You” but for the word taste. I could’ve sworn the lyric was a taste of chica-cherry cola. But alas no taste. Just chica-cherry cola. Hmm.

When I read the remainder of the lyrics I found smell which means I get to stick with my first inclination. This song is one I always want to sing along with but it goes too fast to keep up. Doesn’t stop me from trying. How about y’all try too :). If anything there’s the singable chorus.

Writer(s): Hayes Darren Stanley, Jones Daniel

Anytime I need to see your face,
I just close my eyes
And I am taken to a place where
your crystal mind and
Magenta feelings take up shelter
in the base of my spine
Sweet like a chic-a-cherry cola
I don’t need to try and explain;
I just hold on tight
And if it happens again, I might move
so slightly
To the arms and the lips and the face
of the human cannonball
That I need to, I want to

Come stand a little bit closer
Breath in and get a bit higher
You’ll never know what hit you
When I get to you

[chorus:]

Ooh, I want you
I don’t know if I need you
But, ooh, I’d die to find out
Ooh, I want you
I don’t know if I need you
But, ooh, I’d die to find out

I’m the kind of person who endorses
a deep commitment
Getting comfy getting perfect
is what I live for
But a look, then a smell of perfume
It’s like I’m down on the floor
And I don’t know what I’m in for

Conversation has a time and place
In the interaction of a lover and
a mate,
But the time of talking,
using symbols, using words
Can be likened to a deep sea diver
who is swimming with a raincoat

Come stand a little bit closer
Breathe in and get a bit higher
You’ll never know what hit you
When I get to you

[chorus]

Anytime I need to see your face,
I just close my eyes
And I am taken to a place where
your crystal mind and
Magenta feelings take up shelter
in the base of my spine
Sweet like a chic-a-cherry cola

I don’t need to try and explain;
I just hold on tight
And if it happens again, I might move
so slightly
To the arms and the lips and the face
of the human cannonball
That I need to, I want to

[chorus]

So can we find out?

  1. This was one of my most favorite songs back in college. I love how it seems techno, electronica-ish… but it’s Savage Garden who’d sung it…

    This would have been a great entry for the previous prompt too..

  2. I’ve always loved this song. It sure does go fast with the words, for sure. Good choice – glad it had one of the prompts in there, too, so we could hear it again. 🙂
