about

Marilyn came up with the music for this. She brought it in to a rehearsal & I was blown away by it. I love the fact that it is something I couldn't have written. She came up with the vocal melody for the line "I will not go until we're even". If I'm totally honest, she wrote that line too. I really hope she brings a lot more to the table for the next record as she's an amazing talent.

I wrote the song about me fucking about when I was younger. Ex-girlfriend. An old band. A best friend. Fun things.....and fucking up. Hmmm......fucking up. Is this the album's central theme?!

lyrics

Not who you are but what you’ll do for me.
I know that’s wrong but that’s the way it’s gonna be.
You’re confused & I’m awake.
I’ve felt like that since 1998.
Such a picture perfect fake.
I was filled with so much hate.
You don’t know me any more
And I don’t care, I don’t care, I don’t care.

Could be a thousand years - I wouldn’t change a thing.
Could be a thousand years - I’m still not listening.
Could be a thousand years - I’ll be remembering.
Could be a thousand years - I’m still not listening.

We went out to be part of a scene.
In our teens & happy making enemies.
Drinking life & smoking youth.
I never doubted you were telling me the truth.
Memories so crystal clear.
Sometimes I think that you’re still here.
It’s not something that I want.
It’s the past, it’s the past, it’s the past.

Could be a thousand years - I wouldn’t change a thing.
Could be a thousand years - I’m still not listening.
Could be a thousand years - I’ll be remembering.
Could be a thousand years - I’m still not listening.

I will not go until we’re even.
I will not go until we’re even.
