Description
Most likely the saddest song I've ever written, the ironic thing is when I wrote this I was as happy as a man can be. I guess sub-conciously I was seeing what was to come as a short few months after I'd done my first demo of this the woman I loved ran off with the guitarist in my band.
I was to hurt to attempt this song for a long long time after I dug it up this morning and it just seemed to come together very easily. If ya listen carefully ya can possibly hear me cry while singing it :-)

Recovered momentum
Sorry for your loss, but the upbeat and generally positive ambience of this tune leads me to hope that the worst is over?

Or is it just wishful thinking and you collapse into quivering mush after the last chords fade out.

Like the fade in at the start, incidentally, interesting idea, that.

Well put together, well-produced track, though i know next to nothing about the technical side. The vocals come through well.

Hope things perk up for you! Probably you'll meet someone and the whole thing'll start up again!

Cheers for a nice track.

That pain is long gone as that happened 9 years ago. I just was afraid to work on the song just in case it would bring up sad memories, it did but there was a kinda closure to doing this, I'm glad ya liked it and thanx for sharing your opinion.
All the best till the next adventure
