Song Description

A soulful keyboard-based ballad that builds and ebbs and flows quietly, with beauty and loss. "I thought I loved someone beautiful, someone so strong and so free" is a heart-tugging criticism while trying to shift sadness into resentment. The repeated choruses of "some things in our minds have to change slowly over time" is universal. It's a beautiful and turmoiled statement of trying to move on.

Story Behind the Song

In an effort to accept and move on from the loss of a long-term friend who for years wouldn't be in contact, I wrote this song which deceptively elevated the situation to a romantic loss and included veiled, resentful criticism.

Lyrics

There is nothing in this world that stands alone
what a complicated chemistry
Ooh, babe, the schemes we get ourselves into

Every time you'd walk into the room
my heart slid up to my throat
and it felt so good

But some things in our minds
have to change slowly over time
and I am falling out of love with you
once upon a time I needed you
and now I'm falling out of love with you

I thought I loved someone beautiful
someone so strong and so free
I felt the need to counter all your thoughts
but that was then
and now what matters is tomorrow

Life's afforded us countless chances
so many years of ups and downs
who would I be today?

Now it's time for dissolution
I know I'm mostly the one to blame
but I bet you loved me just the same
if you can't show the decency
to say goodbye peacefully
I hope you know I'm pulling for you
and that you're happy now

But some things in our minds
have to change slowly over time
and now I'm falling out of love with you
it took a while to believe it
but finally I am falling out of love with you

Some things in our minds
have to change slowly over time
but I am falling out of love with you

Goodbye
and good luck

I thought I loved someone beautiful
