Chameleon Girlfriend

about

This last, unexpected smooth one is my favourite. Almost did it in a minute. Topic: inspired by a story from the NY times and a few chameleons in my social environment. O, how they adapt.
Hey, there's a little J.J.Cale influence there in the voice.

lyrics

You can fake the feeling just like that
Respond to reason good or bad
She sneaks among us and deceives us all
Your chameleon girlfriend she's having a ball

See her best impression it's now in session
Her social skills can reach enormous heights
Her kaleidiscopic magic swings
She is madly trying to fit in with your life

So now you try something else to survive
You go easy on the mirror and your life
There's no need to impress yourself
Chameleon people can change their colours
And do that very well

Chameleon people they get along
They try to gain approval but they don't belong
They pay attention to the social cues
They have many faces which one to choose

How she moves so seamlessly between extremes
She always appears to be allright
She is so attuned to what you need
But what will of that social butterfly

So now you try something else to survive
You go easy on the mirror and your life
There's no need to impress yourself
Chameleon people can change their colours
And do that very well
