Song Description

Beautifully-haunting extended intro about lost love kicks into high-energy rock, going from 81 BPM at 162 BPM. Modern harmonies and melody over a driving Classic Rock-inspired baseline. Also features a brief wah wah guitar solo and drum fills reminiscent of Rush. Alternation between full-time and half-time keeps the listener guessing.

Story Behind the Song

Lyrics

Wouldn't it be somethin' if I could have your love again?
Wouldn't that be somethin' to see?
When it's been a long time. Has it been such a long time
you've forgotten
all the things we had together?
Oooh it makes me sad, looking back on days of greener
pastures with you. With you.

Came along a Northern man who answered your demands.
You forgot to ask him why.
2 more men came along, then 3 and maybe ten.
You said, "I believe them all...."

But that's one thing you don't understand about me.
That's one thing you don't understand about me.

Nights turn into months how lonely they can be without you.
Can't you see there's still a fire deep inside of me?
You said, "I believe them all...."

But that's one thing you don't understand about me.
That's one thing you don't understand about me. No!

Nights turn into months how lonely they can be without you.
Can't you see there's still a fire deep inside of me?
She said, "I believe them all...."

But that's one thing you don't understand about me.
That's one thing you don't understand about me.
That's one thing you don't understand about me, no!
That's one thing you don't understand about me.

A tale of 2 songs, the extended dream-like intro ROCKS OUT in a driving 2nd half. A story of lost love, where bigger cars, bank accounts and promises aren't always what they seem. You can't keep a candle burning indefinitely. Influences include Chris Isaak, Alan Parsons, INXS, Yes, King Crimson, James Gang and you'll even hear some Neal Peart Rush drum fills in the dynamic 2nd half.
