    Written & recorded in 1991-92, this is another bedroom-demo classic from 'The Big Squeak'. After writing fairly weird experimental songs for many years it was my attempt at mastering the art of the pop song. Written about a girl who I went out with quite briefly, the lyrics to the verses are quite historically accurate & poignant to me. The lyrics to the chorus however makes me totally vomit & cringe into a ball when I hear it now. Writing a bittersweet love/split-up song is an incredibly hard thing to do without being corny or sickening, as anyone who has ever tried will know too well. Didn't get it quite right & the chirpy optimism of the chorus makes it feel light & throwaway, which is a pity coz it was heartfelt at the time. One day maybe I'll get it right.

      These chirpy optimistic choruses were written as an attempt to keep my own spirits up at the time. But I never liked the lameness of the lyrics & so wish I had tried a bit harder to write something less cliched. Hate it big time!

      Funny how some songs stick in my memory & have a special place in my heart. For all its short comings & commercial poppiness this song was written from the heart about something that was having a major impact on me at the time & actually gets me quite emotional when I hear it. Although I hate the chorus of this song - but love these verses as it really captured the mood of the moment.
