about

This song dates back to 1998 or so, but I never had a decent recording of it from back then. This is something of a drastic remake, too - I was learning how to use Reason *and* ProTools at the same time, and needed something to experiment with. I'll have to get around to recording it in its original form at some point.

lyrics

I climb up on the roof
to howl up at the moon
I nearly broke my shoulder trying to climb back to my room
Elizabeth you’ve got me so confused

Elizabeth my dear
the only thing I fear
is that the words I say are all the ones you want to hear
Elizabeth I cannot shed a tear

Elizabeth you’re wrong
it’s just a stupid song
You’re trying to find beauty in the shadows and the fog
Elizabeth you’ve known this all along

I know you got here first
you’ve had time to rehearse
you break down your defenses just to dive into your purse
Elizabeth i know there’s nothing worse

I look back at the moon
the moon obscured by clouds
I’ve lost my rhyme and reason since I fell back to the ground
Elizabeth there’s still no one around
