The combination of soft acoustic drums, dreamy waves of vocal harmony, and a delicate piano captures the essence of a heart, just before it breaks.

Texas singer-songwriter David Ramirez weaves a thread of melancholy into every passionate note as he explores the fantasy of pure surrender. Ramirez asks the question: how do you sing about hope and passion when yours is lost?

Written just minutes after waking up on a hazy fall day, David Ramirez was sitting on his lover’s bed, looking around at all the perfectly-curated pieces in her room. "I Wanna Live In Your Bedroom" is the simple and sweet serenade that began as a personal exploration of his own sense of vulnerability, discovered in the face of an attraction that demanded everything. Ramirez levels the power of his sugar-coated baritone croon at an image of frozen time, as we admire the trappings of mutual adoration in the half-light of love's perpetual dusk. The combination of soft acoustic drums, dreamy waves of vocal harmony, and a delicate piano captures the essence of a heart, just before it breaks.

I’ve had one too many
I should’ve gone to bed
She’s looking right at me
She’s in my head

Take me home tonight
I’m all yours
I don’t wanna party anymore
Dress me in your clothes
Drown me in your pool
I wanna live in your bedroom
