Strange Affection, strange emotion, strange condition
to your eyes
Moving music, moving pictures, moving mountains,
with your smile

Why do you always head for something that you know
Do you find it so hard to let go

Big addiction, big affliction, big restriction
on your life
More than heavy, more than ready, more than reason,
can provide

Why do you always head for something that you know
Do you find it so hard to let go

Say that you never feel alone, though your friends are all long gone
It seems the song goes on & on, just keeps on rearranging
You never made the grade, or burned bright enough to fade
was it your ego on parade, or is it the ties that bind you

What's the story, what's your worry, what's the lesson here,
you decide
Good convention, best intention, too good to mention,
for your pride

Why do you always head for something that you know
Do you find it so hard to let go

AH YES!--great blues tune!--love the feel!--i wouldn't change a thing!--great one to do live!--thanxs--joe

Like this stuff a lot great job.

Smooth cool groove here! I liked the dynamics of the song from the acoustic guitar to drums and others coming in. All of the performances where great and I also dug the vocal very much! Nice Job!
