When I first heard this months ago performed on an acoustic guitar on the Rose City Round radio show, I didn't like it much. I assumed that it would receive a predictable production treatment for the album version. He says "it's a newer song that's going to get like the full production and probably a completely different tempo and totally realized, re-realized, but uh this is the, this is the uh, meat and potatoes of it."
I'm so glad he didn't do that at all. For the album release, he bravely played it straight and kept it stripped down. It's even slower than on the radio show.
It's the first time on the album I find myself thinking about Jason Lytle's marriage problems in a real way.
It's crushing, but it saves the album at the end.
