Misfits

Words & Music by James Kennedy

'Misfits' is an acoustic Pop Rock song & the 8th song on the 2017 James Kennedy album 'Home'. The words, music & production are by James Kennedy.

'Misfits' is a simple acoustic orientated song based around a finger picked, melodic guitar riff, sparse percussion & vocals. Like the song 'Unconditional' (also on 'Home'), 'Misfits' is a tribute to true love as it is in the 'real' world rather than the glossy, 'perfect' presentation of love in most love songs. 'Misfits' is Kennedy professing his love for his lover despite them both being dysfunctional 'frustrating puzzles'. They may not fit in with much else (Misfits) but they 'fit each other perfect'. The song has an almost Country feel in places due to the finger picking style of the acoustic Guitar on which Kennedy embellishes and improvises throughout. The song is a favourite amongst Kennedys fanbase who have named themselves after the song and the songs meaning has evolved to represent the bonding of their community. The accompanying video by Ted Cornish features a live performance of Kennedy performing the song as well as cameo footage from Youtube star Linda Vuong from the 'Haus Of Colour' channel. The video was shot at the Atrium in Cardiff. All instruments & vocals on the song are performed by Kennedy.

LYRICS

When you know, you know

And you never forget

My heart still races out of control for you

Just like the moment we first met

You’re quirky and you’re cool

You’re beautiful right through

You’re an adorably frustrating puzzle I can’t crack

And I hope I never do

You and me are misfits

That fit eachother perfect

Sometimes I can’t believe it

It’s too good to be true

Everything I do

I always wanna share it with you

You’re my best friend, you’re my partner in crime

And I wanna grow old with you

You’re all my answers and all my reasons

You bring sunshine to all my seasons

You’re more than just The One

You’re my everything

You and me are misfits

That fit eachother perfect

I don’t know how I deserve it

It’s like a dream come true

And I know that a thousand songs about you couldn’t say it all

But I hope you know just how much I love you baby

You and me are misfits

That fit eachother perfect

Sometimes I can’t believe it

It’s too good to be true

You and me are misfits

That fit eachother perfect

I don’t know how I deserve it

It’s like a dream come true

It’s like a dream come true

It’s like a dream come true

You’re my dream come true
