ANNIE DINERMAN: *LISTEN

Solid

(Annie Dinerman, Singer)
Music and lyrics by Annie Dinerman

Songwriter demo, recorded at Jon Gordon's studio in Manhattan.  Annie Dinerman on vocals and guitar, Rex Benincasa on djembek (hand drum).

I wrote this song to tell a man that I cared for him. He never asked me, "Is that about me?" I decided not to rob myself of the joy I felt when I wrote the song. I am so proud of this song.  I definitely enjoyed creating the images in the lyrics. It's a big, happy love song! Whenever I sing it, I feel the same joy I felt when I wrote. I hope it makes you feel happy, too.

SAT DOWN TO BREAKFAST.

PUSHED MY PLATE ASIDE.

FELT SO LUCKY,

WOH, I CRIED.

WE COULD KNOW EACH OTHER

A LIFETIME THROUGH.

YOU’D STILL IMPRESS ME.

THERE’S NO END TO YOU.

 

(CHORUS)

BABY, YOU’RE SOLID, SOLID.

ROCK OF GIBRALTAR.

YOU DON’T JUST TALK--

YOU GOT SOMETHING TO SAY.

YOU’RE A SOLID, SOLID,

QUALITY MAN.

WOH-OH-OH-OH, YOU’RE SO SOLID, BABY.

 

YOU’RE A BIG COUNTRY

WHERE MY HEART IS FREE,

SAFE INSIDE YOUR

EMBASSY.

WON’T YOU BE MY HOMELAND

A LIFETIME THROUGH?

I’LL NEVER NEED TO

MAKE A MAP OF YOU.

 

(REPEAT CHORUS)

YOU’RE A SOLID, SOLID,

QUALITY MAN.

WOH-OH-OH-OH, YOU’RE SO SOLID, BABY.

 

(BRIDGE)

HOW MANY MEN ARE LIKE YOU?

DAMN FEW ARE.

WANT TO SHOW YOU A LOVE AS BIGHEARTED

AS YOU ARE.

 

(REPEAT CHORUS)

YOU’RE A SOLID, SOLID,

QUALITY MAN.

WOH-OH-OH-OH, YOU’RE SO SOLID, BABY.

YEAH, THAT’S MY BABY.
