Song Description

A slightly mutated Texas shuffle (a minor tribute to SRV) with a propulsive rhythm. Lots of guitar work including a bit of middle eatern melody in the last guitar solo.

Story Behind the Song

I once had a relationship with a girl who had a vvastly different idea about what was going on than I did, finally she left, and I realized that I actually did love her.

Lyrics

I never lied to you baby, I only lied to myself
I never lied to you baby, I only lied to myself
You're the only one I need, I never loved nobady else.

I strumbled like blind man, never saw what could have been mine
I strumbled like blind man, never saw what could have been mine
The man who will not see, is the one who's truly blind.

There's no lie quite as evil, as the one you tell yourself
There's no lie quite as evil, as the one you tell yourself
Now that the truth has broken through, got to learn to live all by myself.

It's a harder cross to bear, babe, when you do it to yourself,
It's a harder cross to bear, babe, when you build it for yourself,
Now I know what I really want, my baby's with somebody else.
