Gerald Spencer These, few, selections of Valerio Lysander's work barely scratch the surface and tell what a consumate performer and composer he is.

about

A song I wrote about Justin, whose name didn't rhyme.

lyrics

I swam in your blue eyes and now I'm drowning
Ryan, oh Ryan
I thought we were together but I'm lonely
Ryan, oh Ryan

I might have maybe idealised
and thought that I would never ever leave you
I might have missed relevant signs,
will I not ever see you again?

Ryan, oh Ryan
Stay with me on this island
Ryan, oh Ryan
I just thought that you would like me too

I like walking without direction
But I'm tired, I'm tired
And I thought you'd consider this affection
Well I am, oh I am...

It's been sunny this afternoon
but I'm still a bit under the weather
It would be nice under the moon
To hold your hand and take you where I am

Ryan, oh Ryan
Stay with me on this island
Ryan, oh Ryan
I just thought that you would like me too

Ryan, walk next to me
Ryan, didn't you see
Fire burning the leaves
Fire around you and me?

Ryan, oh Ryan
Stay with me on this island
Ryan, oh Ryan
I just thought that you would like me too

I'm dry, oh, I'm dry
I'm drained by this fake fire
Ryan, oh Ryan
Should I call you once just once again?
I just can't get you out of my head
Would you please reply to my text... bitch
