This is another song from the first batch of songs I wrote. I turned the waltz beat up crazy fast and went at it. I remember writing out the lyrics for this and needing to remember accents and phrasing, so I came up with a shorthand for inflections and rhythms of specific words and syllables which I still use today. It was the "I can't fucking read your mind lyric" that kept throwing me. The bass is pretty out of tune but that's just how it was those days.
I like this tune but it's one of those songs I think should exist only as this recording. Consequently I've played it live just once, at Mic-Club here in NYC, back in 2010 or so.
