Another World

Gerald Brennan—composer, lyricist, vocalist


Not all songs are nice. Or even healthy. This is a nasty song about a nasty type of man.
Certain types of women fly to him magnetically. He has his radar adjusted for weak, needy women who are very naïve. He takes from them whatever he wants and counts on their desperate desire for companionship and love, but as soon as they start to cramp his style he is off on the prowl, in search of other worlds to conquer.
He gets off on the corruption of innocence. It’s like a drug to him.
But that doesn’t mean that when he abandons you that you’ll be alone. Men like him like to spread their seed around. He’s very generous that way…

She isn’t mine but she’s fine and she can tell by my eyes –
There are no ties that bind me.
She might be lonely tonight and so I’ll give her a whirl.

We’re at your bar late at night, We’re at your office all day.
It isn’t hard to find me.
Forget yourself, drop your guard a notch and I will appear.

Because you don’t really know what you need, baby,
I’ll squeeze your heart till you bleed, baby.
I’ll take what’s left of your love and then I’ll run off to find
Another world.

I’ll be your loving machine so come along and you’ll see.
Pick up my key and wind me.
Baby, I’m just what you’re looking for but just for a while.

I want your heart and your soul, I’m taking all that I need,
But not enough to blind me.
I’ll never give in to love to live in one little world.

Because you don’t really know what you need, baby,
I’ll squeeze your heart till you bleed, baby.
I’ll take what’s left of your love and then I’ll run off to find

Another world for me to take,
A sleeping beauty that I finally kiss awake,
A brand new girl for me to win
Can be so thrilling I don’t know where to begin.
But when new love becomes a bind,
I’ll hit the road again as soon as I can find
Another world.

Sometimes I wonder if I should try to just settle down,
And put it all behind me.
And then a lonesome young beauty draws me down with a smile.

Because you don’t really know what you need, baby,
I’ll squeeze your heart till you bleed, baby.
I’ll break what’s left of your heart and then I’ll run off to find

Another world for me to take,
A sleeping beauty that I finally kiss awake,
A brand new girl for me to win
Can be so thrilling I don’t know where to begin.
But when new love becomes a bind,
I’ll hit the road again as soon as I can find
Another world.

She isn’t mine but she’s fine and she can tell by my eyes –
There are no ties that bind me.
If she should laugh and refuse me now, or just walk away,
I’ll find another girl,
Leave something of myself inside her.
She’ll make another world
Beside her.
