He and She

From the CD

"A Little Voodoo"
Sojourn Hills Records, 2002


Music: Eric, Brett, Paul & Jen; Lyrics: Dwayne

When GEG set out to write a "rock" song for "A Little Voodoo," the task was given to Eric, Brett and Paul.  "He and She" is the result.   


she moves best in silhouette
he looks just a bit upset
she says, “what’s the story with you?”
he knows many years ago
she was seventeen or so
they left at a quarter to two
heard she made her way out west,
and took a lover or two
heard she left some old address,
“I hate to write so don’t expect me to.”
hold me, if you really want to
kiss me, if you feel you ought to
take me, anyway you need to
leave me, if you ever have to
he says, “that’s what’s up with me.”

she says, “what’s your worry?
it’s easy, that’s the trouble with you.”
she says, “i forgive you.”
he laughs and says “i should thank you
you left me, not a moment too soon.”
then he watched her arms both lifting,
as she started to dance
all the faces facing waiting,
everybody’s waiting for a chance
hold me, if you really want to
kiss me, if you feel you ought to
take me, anyway you need to
leave me, if you ever have to

GEG wrote 50 songs for "A Little Voodoo" and whittled them down to a 17 song demo CD.  They had raised enough money to do a professional job producing the CD, but their budget was somewhat limited.  They did not know who would be willing to work on the project, but they wanted to get the best people they could.  GEG made a wishlist of producers and sent the demo out to each of them.  They knew that oftentimes producers want to work a whole album, or none of it.  It turns out that all on the wishlist were interested, and they all were willing to get involved, even if meant only doing a couple of songs.  GEG decided to do just that, so they could tap a wide variety of talent, and learn as much as they could.  They also chose to produce two of the songs on their own.  With multiple production teams there was a risk of a "hodgepodge" or incongruent sound to the album.  However, with GEG's vision, the result is the critically acclaimed "A Little Voodoo."
