New Original from AJ Rafael – “Red Roses”

Here’s a light hearted new tune from AJ Rafael, who reportedly wrote this in the car on the way home from UCLA. It has his trademark sound and charm but definitely could use some fleshing out in the studio. Anyway, check out the Valentine inspired tune below. Who knows, maybe this will be the next tune turned MV like his recently released “We Could Happen“.

There you are
With your light brown hair
Apologize cuz all that I did was stare
And no im not a creeper I swear that im a keeper
Im just glad you noticed that I was there

I got your name but I didn’t get your number
So now im filled with all this regret and wonder
Would you wanna see me
And would you wanna kiss me
Im getting way ahead of myself
But I cant get you off of my mind
No I cant

I wish I woulda asked you out
I wish I didn’t have these doubts about myself
For those 3 minutes that you stood in front of me
I wish I hadn’t walked away
I wish I had the guts to say
Would you be my
I wish I woulda asked you to be my valentine

So I had one more chance
to gather my thoughts and just spit it out
but now I’ve missed the moment
so now I’d never know if
you’d say yes to the question I ask

so now Im here
without you im crushed cuz I got these roses
these red roses and god knows that
I’d have given them to you
But I cant get you off my mind
