Description
This is a song about a girl who tried to find love in the wrong places. She also was kind of misguided in her methods yet she had a pure heart.
It's kind of a soul rock tune. Hard to deal with genres.
I hope you enjoy it.
Bernardo

P.S: The artwork is also mine (a detail).

Lyrics
JAMIE WAS A GOOD GIRL
By┬ęBernardo Barreto

Jamie was a good girl
But she wore her shirts too tight
She was the queen of the schoolyard
But her skirts were often quite high.

Well she was a really lonely girl at heart.

Those teenage years seem so vague and yet so clear
Life's unfair and so are we,
Jamie was a victim of her short, short skirts
And her lonely heart.

(solo)

Well one hot, hot summer
Jamie came to me with her short, short skirt
And her lonely heart
So I took her for a ride.

How could I not? I was a lonely teenager too.

I wasn't planning to become
The next jerk to break her heart
But I did, I wasn't ready to go steady
Or to become a family man.

Those teenage years seem so vague and yet so clear
Life's unfair and so are we,
Jamie was a victim of her short, short skirts
And her lonely heart.

Hey B!
Thank you! You just kept me from throwing a fifteen hundred dollar Mac into the trash. Now it pays off. I hate computers, but I love your music! You sold me dude! I heard one, and said "hey, what's this?" Tuned in again to this one and now I'm chained. Good thing I don't know about visual art, or escape would be futile. Keep on, and I'll keep listening.

Like the way you have this arranged. Your vocals slice in well here. Teenage years are fading away for both of us.

I've listened to quite a
few of your songs now. You have a marvelously distinctive voice that keeps me coming back. But what this track also illustrates very well is your masterful musicianship and production skills. I hope you stay at MJ's once your home is rebuilt. Downloaded. Thanks.
Cheers

One of my
Favorite tunes by you B, a delight to hear this again...
MIRx said 3581 days ago (February 26th, 2008)
I remember this one
from iComp, papa, and still think is a great track! I'm not sure about the artwork, though, I seem to remember it's the same as on iComp, but it was so tiny over there I couldn't really appreciate it as much as I can do now. It's a fascinating and intriguing piece of art, and I wonder what surface it is painted on... I mean it doesn't seem to be canvas to me...?

Artwork
You're right Mirco, it isn't canvas it's board and lace. It is just a detail from a larger painting. You can see it in my website. It's called "Lace".
