I just had this idea for a simple guitar progression and I started recording it. John wrote lyrics while I was recording parts for it. We decided to keep this one simple. Acoustic guitar, a bit of keyboards and vocals. The flute lead section I came up with after John had left. I spend some time teaking it (Ah, the beauty of MIDI) and it came out perfect. If you were wondering, the lead is a flute on one side and a pan flute (Zamfir!) on the other. When I listen to it I can imagine the person playing the flute. This song came together real quick. Sometimes the best stuff goes quickly.
The subject matter is completely fictitous.
Lyrics by John Lister
She came to me in a state of misery and what could I say, what could I say
Bill was my friend and I will say it once again, but what will he say
Well now come to find I’m not the only one two- timed, but what can I say
