Original Song: Let Me Be Your Muse

by Jon Pinney on May 3, 2013

Ok so I know it’s been a few weeks since I posted, and none of you know how much I like this city or hate it, but I have to say I LOVE New York City!!!

The moment the bus arrived, I new I had found my new home. It just feels so right here.

I’m not sure what will happen to me while I’m here, but I am definitely excited to find out. It took me a couple weeks to find a place in Harlem, but I have since moved in and love my apartment. I have one roommate who just happens to be from my home town in California (I know random) and he is a playwrite. So basically we’re just a bunch of artists making our way in the biggest city in the world! Super exciting :)

To commemorate this, I wanted to share one of the newer guitar songs I’ve been working on. It is called “Let me be your muse” and will most likely be featured on the new album as soon as I can finish recording it. It’s a pretty rough live recording from my place in Harlem, but I hope you enjoy it anyway. Here you go!

Let me be your muse
Music and Lyrics by Jon Pinney

I would be the one to cool you down
Take that fire and slowly put it out
Wrap you in my arms and tell you everything’s alright

I won’t be the guy that takes you out
I’ll make you dinner and avoid the crowd
I’ll give you a night that you won’t ever forget

Chorus
Let me be your muse
Let me be your muse
I’ll smile the way you want me to

I will stroke the strings and play for you
Haunting melodies and sexy blues
Every night before you fall asleep

I will take you to Paris
Walk you up and down the Champs Elysee
Take you to Rome where you can be my queen

Chorus
Let me be your muse
Let me be your muse
I’ll smile the way you want me to
I can be your man
I can be your man
If you just reach out your hand

I’ve never known a woman that was so hot and cold
I’ve never held a woman that was just so damn beautiful
And every time I look in your eyes I can see
That you want me

Chorus
So let me be your muse
Let me be your muse
I’ll smile the way you want me to
You can break my heart
You can take my soul
Make use of everything I own
