Lyrics
Stranger things have happened in the course of my retreat
Images I once held high lie scattered at my feet
If someone told me long ago I’d find myself here now
I wouldn’t have believed them then - I didn’t want to know

When I was a younger man my truth I could create
Telling lies between the lines but catching them too late
I wanted you to love me for the things that I had done
How was I to know it doesn’t matter in the end

But Oh Lord
How I can be deceived
Into thinking that reflections
Are something to believe

If I could do it all again I’d like to believe
That I’d take another course and do things differently
Vanity has led me to concluding on my fate
That somehow from this distance I can see things perfectly

But Oh Lord
How I can be deceived
Into thinking that reflections
Are something to believe

Lyrics
I really enjoyed the lyrics on this one. I enjoyed the way the verses were sung but I imagined a little more power behind the chorus. The guitar / drum beat was nicely done. Overall good song. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks for dropping by and taking
the time to comment. I'll see if I can get some more oomph behind the chorus at rehearsal tomorrow night. We have a gig next week to get ready for.

I will follow
you know there is a cool blend of U2 and the Byrds here. Way to go, who would ever thought it possible.... well you guys did.

sounding pretty tight with a little proper amount of loosness.

Intersting deduction
I thought I was just ripping off R.E.M. - but the Byrds were one of my faves as a kid. You're kind about the "proper looseness".

energy
Nothing as cool as when the energy from a band performing live reaches from the stage and grabs the listener like this does. I can hear and feel that you guys have a good time here.

Great song art!
One of my favorite Twilight Zone eps. The Shat was always in great form on Twilight Zone. I wonder where that damn monster landed. Hopefully in some schoolyard.

Anyway, this is a nice little pop number. Poppier than the others posted. Must be a great addition live. Right when the audience thinks they've got you pegged, you punch them in the groin and tell them naughty jokes. The lyrics are a strong force in this gem, too.

The band has such a fresh energetic feeling. They obviously have fun and are comfortable in sharing that with the audience. What's not to love??
