Selina, I’m a Wreck

selina and meI wrote a song about Catwoman. It went like this. At the 2009 SDCC (San Diego Comic Con), I met a young lady dressed as Catwoman. As she walked away, I realized I was in love. Isn’t that always the case? This song tells the story as straight as I could do it.

I recorded “Selina” as a part of the IRL collection in the spring of 2010.

Allen Morris who engineered the sessions made two final mixes.

You can download all the songs from IRL on its page and also download the studio tracks to do your own re-mixing.

Lyrics

One hot July afternoon
you slunk by in your catsuit
I touched your back. We talked for a second.
Now you’re into me bad, I reckon.

Selina, I’m a wreck since you walked away
all the time, almost every day.
I’ve been hoping that we’ll meet again.
Maybe it’ll be at the next convention.

I ran into someone who knew you.
She told me what you might be up to.
So in your Gotham haunts, I’m lurking
but my search for your alter ego isn’t working.

I will cosplay with you
as long as I’m not the fool
cause I’ve played that role
and I know enough now to say no.
