External speakers or headphones will provide you with a much richer aural experience than computer speakers or smartphones speakers (you’ll miss about half the frequency range if you go with computer or smartphone speakers and the sound quality will be awful).


The dark day dawns, traffic clogs my head.
My dreams drift off, beach gleaming taunts me
Think of you, I see you smiling
An orange chiffon a breeze lifts slightly

Flutters, caress, shivers, knees going weak you being near
Blushing panic afraid to say hello to you
Silly, smiling, tongue-tied, feel like an idiot all the time
But you don’t seem to notice my sense of awkwardness

Don’t know why I don’t just ask you out
Will you meet me for tea by the sea
Someday soon will confidence come
Until that time I’ll just keep smiling
