Song: 'Call Your Girlfriend' by Robyn.

 

Previously...

 

You'll never know, Edward.

-Sept. 23, 2007, Saturday-

Since Tanya's intrusion yesterday, Edward and I had grown strangely...closer? I wouldn't know what to call it because it was sweet, but weird. Not that I didn't appreciate him, but sometimes he'd give me this look, like I was the only one in the room. The other bandmates, especially Kate, noticed as we wrote and recorded more songs together. So far, we had up to ten songs. Not bad for a first album! But as hard as we were working, Carlisle just kept pushing for perfection.

When we were let go for the rest of the day, Alice said she had a song she wanted to record. I asked what it was, she just winked at me. Sneaky, little pixie.

Since Edward knew how to engineer as well as his mother, he agreed to engineer the song while I watched from the soundbooth next to Edward.

"Ready, Al?" Edward asked in the microphone.

"Yep!" Alice smiled, and put her headphones on.

Call your girlfriend

It's time you had the talk

Give your reasons

Say it's not her fault

But you just found somebody new

I noticed that Alice kept looking at Edward pointedly, and with attitude. I looked to him, and saw him looking back at her with shock, but tried to hide it. But I also saw something else in his eyes. Frustration? Fear? I wasn't sure.

Tell her not to get upset, second-guessing everything you said and done

And then when she gets upset tell her how you never mean to hurt no one

Then you tell her that the only way her heart will mend is when she learns to love again

And it won't make sense right now but you're still her friend

And then you let her down easy

 

Call your girlfriend

It's time you had the talk

Give your reasons

Say it's not her fault

But you just met somebody new

Don't you tell her how I give you something that you never even knew you missed

Don't you even try and explain how it's so different when we kiss

You tell her that the only way her heart will mend is when she learns to love again

And it won't make sense right now but you're still her friend

And then you let her down easy
