Lyrics
Power to Pull

The doubts creeping in
As she sinks another Gin
And she gets ready
For the party.

She’s not just a mum
She’s not just the school run
She still has something
To give

When she was in her teens
If you were size 16
You might as well have been dead
Now everything is bigger, It’s called a fuller figure
Says the little voice in her head.

Has she still got the power to pull
Now she’s forty
Still got the power to pull
If she needs

Back in her teens
She was the dancing queen
She new she had the power to pull
But the years are unkind and she hates her lines
What she thinking as she crosses the floor
The strobe lights the way to the door
She wonders what she came here for

Middle aged disco dancers
Are all 17 inside
If she dances with this man
How will she face the other mothers
At the school gates there’s nowhere to hide

But she still has a distant memory
The passion of that first romance
The young man beside her
Silk Cut and sweet cider
The days of the disco dance

Like the
fingerstyle stuff you were doing here. When the stumming comes in, it is a bit loud in the mix though. This sounds like it might have been recorded live though so may not be able to mod that.
Check out my latest song called Dollar Store Christmas w/ Jerry Rissew
