Could that be said about us?
Have you ever felt this, I wonder? Thought about it for longer than you dared; to try and realise the point? That is, to say, you've listened to a song, over and over, and always wondered what it was about, what it meant. What emotions and experiences shaped the penning of those lyrics? What was going on in that person's life to inspire the words to flow in the way they did? Perhaps, and this is just a rather obvious hunch, in order to 'get' it, you need a similar moment or experience. A common reference point between listener and lyricist, perhaps, or a sharing of biographies, even at a false distance, just for a moment. Anyway, the thing is, I think I get this song now. I mean really get it. And for that I can only say thank-you, Philip. x

Like running down a one-way street. Go watch them play. Buy the album. The official video.
