Broadjam Member Reviews

Very clever lyrics, great rhyming patterns, nice subtle female harmony. Nice fiddle work and guitar rifts. The chorus had a very catchy lead line. Easy to sing along with and very danceable. The bridge was nice change musically. The gossip at the end was was unique, entertaining and tied the song together well.

    - Randy Steward

This song is great. The vocals were really good and the harmonies also were great. I liked the talking part ant the end. The instruments were great, I really like the fiddle back fills. The mix was really good.The tempo was nice.

The Story Was Left Untold

Everybody's freaking, 'cause everybody's speaking
And most of it's behind my back
It doesn't really matter if all the wild chatter
Is a rumor or a story or a fact
All of it's behind my back, so I can't react

Hey little sister, yeah, I thought I heard you whisper
And you know it's such a waste of time
Whatever, he said or she said, that we said
I'm sure it never crossed my mind
I know it never crossed my mind, such a waste of time

---Chorus---
Mama tried to tell me that the highway to hell would be
Littered with gossip and gold
And Daddy tried to show me, but he really didn't know me
And the (my) story was left untold
---------------------------
Passively aggressive and aggressively deceptive
Well, the story has a life of its own
Usually out of spite and well into the night
They can talk until the cows come home
The story has a life of its own, till it's left alone

You know it's headed south, when you've heard it word of mouth
And the gossip is yesterday's news
But, they're talking out of turn and no one's too concerned
That the story is heartless and cruel
The gossip is yesterday's news and tomorrow's blues

--Repeat Chorus--
-Bridge-
When the end is near and all my thoughts are crystal clear
I know what won't be on my mind, anything thoughtless or unkind

--Repeat Chorus--
