"Stuck" is the fourth single by Dutch jazz singer Caro Emerald from her debut album Deleted Scenes from the Cutting Room Floor. Despite having been released in 2010, this recordhas a very particular atmosphere. It's because its songs are inspired by films and music from the 40's and 50's. The album features ballroom jazz, cinematic tangos, groovin' jazz tracks and infectious mambos that sound like they were recorded in the golden age in Hollywood's most celebrated recording studios.

I close my eyes and dream about a sunny holiday
I wish that I was beachin' down in Saint Tropez
Or sitting in the lobby at the fabulous Pierre
With diamonds on my fingers and not a single care

Instead I'm on the Avenue where nobody goes
With fields of green that wilted like a last summer rose
Some people call it paradise, but I call it pain
Baby take me anywhere, but not here again

Why am I sitting in the middle of nowhere
Standing here with nothing to do
Wondering if I really love you, oh oh
I guess that I do

Why am I sitting in the middle of nowhere
Standing here with nothing to do
Wondering if I really love you oh oh
I guess that I do

You promised me a motorcade and endless perfume
A palace in Geneva with a perfect view
And dreams painted yellow like the colour of gold
And dine with kings and queens until the food gets cold

Instead I'm on the edge of all I thought I would be
This dream is now comedy I don't wanna see
Some people call it laughter but I call it pain
Baby take me anywhere but not here again

Why am I sitting in the middle of nowhere
Standing here with nothing to do
Wondering if I really love you, oh oh
I guess that I do

Why am I sitting in the middle of nowhere
Standing here with nothing to do
Wondering if I really love you, oh oh
I guess that I do, I do

I know we have a chemistry
This combination's heavenly
But don't forget you promised me
Everything

Everything

I know we have a chemistry
This combination's heavenly
But don't forget that you promised me
Everything

Why am I sitting in the middle of nowhere
Standing here with nothing to do
Wondering if I really love you, oh oh
I guess that I do

Why am I sitting in the middle of nowhere
Standing here with nothing to do
Wondering if I really love you, oh oh
I guess that I do

"One continental debutant who'd rather be in Saint-Tropez than hoping for the arrival of Santa Claus, dishes the dirt in her conversation du jour with that fast-talking playboy and his endless promises that never seem to arrive on time. Don't worry about your dinner, big boy... here come your just desserts."
