Reckless

Words & Music by James Kennedy

'Reckless' is a Pop Rock song & the 7th song on the 2017 James Kennedy album 'Home'. The words, music & production are by James Kennedy.

'Reckless' is a funky, upbeat Pop Rock song with some Reggae, Blues, Rock & Gospel influences. The recording features Drums, distorted Bass, clean & distorted Guitars, Hammond organs, Brass, Gospel backing vocals and lead vocals, all performed by Kennedy except the backing vocals performed by Cat Southall. The song is about the undeniable but unspoken sexual tension or chemistry that can happen between 2 strangers meeting for the 1st time. The song is verbalising what both sides are actually thinking and suggesting that they just be 'Reckless'. As every other song on 'Home' is an honest expression of events in Kennedys actual life, it is unclear as to whether 'Reckless' is based on a particular event or person.

LYRICS

Nice to meet ya, but I can’t ignore this chemistry

I can read ya and baby there’s no need to be

A teaser, we could skip from A to B

So I can teach ya, some things you’ve never seen

I’m only saying what’s on our minds

Can’t blame a man for trying

Life can get crazy so why waste time

Playing and denying

I know what you want, you know what I want

Just seize the moment when 2 right’s can’t be wrong

Girl lets move along, what we waiting on?

We ain’t fooling no one when 2, 2 right’s can’t be wrong

I wanna please ya, you’ll be the star of the show

I’ll unleash ya and no one will ever know

How I feast ya, sensory overload

Girl I need ya, so come on let’s hit the road

My cards are all on the table now

So how you gonna play it

We can run but we can’t hide now

So I’m just gonna say it

I know what you want, you know what I want

Just seize the moment when 2 right’s can’t be wrong

Girl lets move along, what we waiting on?

We ain’t fooling no one when 2, 2 right’s can’t be wrong

We can make this night one we won’t forget

Surrender to desire

And just maybe we might do it some time again

If you’re lucky

I know what you want, you know what I want

Just seize the moment when 2 right’s can’t be wrong

Girl lets move along, what we waiting on?

We ain’t fooling no one when 2, 2 right’s can’t be wrong
