Very nicely written and rendered song about a state of mind.

Put me there. Was depressing but felt "real."

Good art.

This is a great collab. Super lyric, Mike, and Ricki really nailed the vocal. And Mike's production, as always, is a joy.

That chorus soars. smile

I thought of Lucinda Williams too.

Thanks, Scott. Lucinda came to mind as soon as I read Mike L's lyrics and I tried to bring that out with the music and vocal. Mike Z then just took it over the top. I love it when these things come together! smile

Wonderful write, has some inner rhymes and a nice rhythm to it, very good phrasing, really like the tone of our voice on this one Ricki! The track is sweet, the instruments are bright and sad, it works for me, nice collaboration!

Thanks for listening, Anthony and glad you liked what we did. I set the tempo somewhere between wistful and dirge. You could be right but I don't imagine a few BPM would matter, either way.
