You Never Know

Story Behind The Song

This song attempts to recreate the mystery behind life's many relationships. The lyrics describe a an ill-fated romance charged mostly by unsatisfied lust and want. The need to lose oneself in the arms of another. And then, when too close, the hurt that follows.

Song Description

This song celebrates the irrelevance of fate. The two-part harmony evokes a ghostly presence and some of the guitar notes seem to hang on forever. Add to that the ripping sax, the innocence of the viola, and the other-worldly chimes and you have one enigma!

There was something in her eyes.
That told me not to listen to the words.
Soft and gentle were the lies.
That pulled me strongly into her world.

She took me over when she took me down.
I never knew that love could be so profound.
All the logic that I used to like.
I now abandon like a former life.

Fate is cast into the wind to where the four winds blow.
What will happen in the end?
You Never Know.

You love her madly into the night.
Thinking sadly of the morning light.
Will the loneliness that you feel inside?
Come to the surface and destroy your mind?

You hang your head and melt off in the dawn.
A million questions won't leave your brain alone.
Did you do everything that you could have done?
To keep her by your side, keep her holding on?
