All real instruments. A dark downbeat song featuring a five string bass being finger tapped. A bit sparse to start but give it time to build.

Lyrics -

This town looks so different at Midnight
I've never seen her streets so subdued

I drove out here to remember
That's seven bucks I won't get back soon

I know you don't wanna hear it because it's so cliche
but I just wanted to tell you how much I've thrown away

and I'll admit it's unhealthy and someday I'll pay
but I just wanted to indulge myself today

walking through the front door and swearing I won't be long
unlike the man whose been them since he got back from nome

My regards to the cold wind I wanted to feel numb
but now I just want to talk to someone

I'd like to drive a little longer and listen to the static
but when am I not being over dramatic

When the lights of Lyons come into view
I'll be home asleep and can forget of you

One of my all time favorites.

Back here in 2013 and saw i never wrote review, so i thought, "Why not?"

I like everything about this song (even those few times when the drums or the bass aren't 100% spot on, the add "flavour"), except maybe the ending (is the sound called a "feedback sound"?) that gets just a tiny bit too loud in my opinion. Still 10/10...or 5/5 as they seem to have changed the rating system to, lol.

Thanks! We recorded this almost four years ago now. It was full of feeling at the time. I'm really glad you like it.
