This song is an emotional response to a friends’ expectations. I wrote it in about an hour, with the words faint hearted woman etched in my brain as I reached for my guitar to find the mood I was trying to express, which was hurt, anger and concern.
There is the inevitable minor key in there with the major key signature. It is overall a simple song with a slow rhythm and blues type arrangement. A bit of a throw back to the 1960’s. Produced by Lynton Guest and delivered beautifully by my singer friend Anuska.
“As the sun rises en-route to his home
He wakes me on his mobile phone,
And calls me a faint hearted woman.”
Not Your Faint Hearted Woman was awarded a Commended Entry Certificate in the RnB/Urban Category in the UK Songwriting Contest 2014.
