Story

Frank: I always look forward to doing this one whenever we play live. It's one of Luisa's best. The lead guitar part in this song was heavily influenced by fingerstyle player Al Petteway. I absolutely love his tasteful playing.

Luisa: I always dread doing this one whenever we play live! I love the song, but fingerpicking live makes me nervous so I often try and sneak it out of the set list. Now that we have it recorded, it takes the pressure off and I am delighted with how it turned out.

Lyrics

(Tanno)
We all catalogue our fears 
In an order that's perverse 
We decide sharing is the worst 
I've been known to state with pride 
Just how few have seen me cry 
As if that's somehow divine 

But now I stand here accused 
Of having a heart I don't much use 
And how the truth can wound you on an honest day 
When your actions take intention a whole other way 
And as I choke on all the things I want to say 
He walks away 

I'm not really trying to hide 
It's not like I haven't tried 
To expose what goes on inside 
I suppose as we mature 
Closeness has a new allure 
But desire does not provide a cure 

So I stand accused 
Of having a heart I don't much use 
And how the truth can wound you on an honest day 
When your actions take intention a whole other way 
And as I choke on all the things I want to say 
He walks away 

And could it feel this bad to just have given all I had 
He walks away, He walks away
