firth5a: Was there a Hammond organ in there? Really liked the solo, but the song seems to be missing somethin...

ghengus23: great down dirty country rock feelin' from the start. Reminds me of social distortion. Not sure if...

Ultrajoebot - I once embarked on a grand adventure, tracking the footprints of an elusive pygmy marmoset across the Amazon river basin for eight trying weeks during the summer of 1992. I never did end up catching the beast, but I did overhear a series of shrill mating calls that inspired me to start writing music. My hope is that one day I will stumble across the perfect pop song, which will somehow convince the little guy to come to Brooklyn and come hang out with me. We'll have milkshakes and watch Futurama together, it'll be great.

that phil collins tom part drags this one down. still a distinct moody sound, which is cool.

pensive...searching...yearning. But it's so quiet. I want him to scream now, break things!

i'm digging this. it totally reminds me of the kind of progressive alt-pop that was huge locally here in the mid eighties to 90's. everybody would dress in black and dance real slow. i like the feel and the recording is nice and clean.

this is nice, it's well done, it's very familiar without being familiar

This may have some drearyness to it, but I think it is actually quite good.

The vocals don't bother me per-se but an improvement in them can only be an improvement in the song. I think it works pretty well the way it is though.

Thanks for the feedback, the second-rate vocals are definitely not on purpose, it's just me trying to sing with a voice that doesn't want to. I'm actually retracking the vocals now, and it's sounding better. Sedrite, you are spot on when you called it dreary.

I like it too. I wish the chorus was a little stronger/more energetic just for contrast to the verses. The guitar work is so perfect and precise, but the singing wanders in the cracks....maybe this was intentional, I don't know. I do wish the singing was a bit more finessed like the playing. It's a very good song.....sad but not weepy.

Hmm...I like this kind of thing...and there's a couple of counterintuitive tasties...a little dreary though...
Lnight I thought I saw your face
In a scene at the edge of a dream
And I swear that I saw you smile
I saw a light within your eyes
Then a voice I was dying to hear
Broke the silence with a whisper
Just a dream

We'll tiptoe around this way for years
Just to keep from ever saying anything
Until one of us says the first word
Goodbye

Reliving our last tug of war
On our sides where we both stood alone
Keep from letting each other in
Vivid and true in memory
It's replaying again and again
Til we reach the end unchanging
Once again

We'll tiptoe around this way for years
Just to keep from ever saying anything
Until one of us says the first word
Goodbye

Years spent counting sleepless dreams of
Empty days of trying to break the

We'll tiptoe around this way for years
Just to keep from ever saying anything
Until one of us says the first word
Goodbye
