Song Description

Some people haunt you. You envy them, and they envy you. You know each other better than you'd ever want to admit, but you can never be friends. Again. And yet...

Story Behind the Song

Written late. Recorded later. Mixed much, much later.


Sparkle & fade. The tragic temptress lets her face fade away, and I don't care. The silver lining in her clouded eyes just isn't there. Pack it up and explode! It's closing time, so we'll just get this one for the road?

We hit the bottle and go count the blurry lights, and say "don't look at me that way." There's a million words that never come out right? oh, no... okay...

She's the Jill of all trades. She'll carry on with you until she thinks she's got it made, then she'll buy you a drink, but not nearly strong enough to tell her exactly what you think?

We hit the bottle...

I've been stuck behind that shadow for fifteen hours past a year and a day. There's so many things to tell her, but I can't tell you why I've nothing left to say

We hit the bottle...

I?m alright, I?m just fading out of sight. That's okay, I don't need too much attention anyway...
