In the rush of writing and completing unfinished tracks that was 2000-2001, I took the space to do a lot of reflection about relationships from the past, friends and otherwise, and this track focusing on one of the less favourable ones grew out of that time.
I penned this track pretty quickly and I remember bringing it to the Shift band in the mid-2000's, but the song never survived a quick discussion. I probably flooded all my feelings into the rather aggressive feel and lyrics of the track, but I don't recall much of the writing process.
The song is a pseudo-part two to The Way The World.
She seemed a jewel out of a crown – I couldn’t miss her
She said that I could stick around and be with her
She loved the neighbours and the sound of their singing compliment
I would cover so much ground just to be with her
She said I liked her sister’s round more than her
She was abrasive in abound – I wouldn’t beat her
She said, ‘are you chicken?’ aloud – I wasn’t full of confidence
I am amazed I hung around…
She said, ‘its been here all the time – how could I miss it?’
She offered to hit my weaker self – I never took it
I say I’ve had a real good time, but now its over
