This is my demo of this tune. This track has been through quite a journey. There's a blog here:
Which directs to Dave's youtube video performance of it.
My horrid YouTube performance of it is here.

(It's the thought that counts. I did it for Dave's birthday)

But I've been wanting to fix it since then. This is attempt one. I changed the key and made it a little closer to the original.
It's a work in progress. I could play it live now, at least :)


I wish I had the chance to say I love you again
I wish you weren't content in just being my friend
And if we had it all to do all over again
I'd still just be this human child afraid to pretend

It's safe to say it's over, 'cause I don't know what that means
As I dangle un-animated by my worn-out puppet strings
I really thought we had it, but what is the use
When two people forfeit love and won't acknowledge the truth

(Because) It's over, really over before it began
Destined to become something neither one of us could stand
I remember walking hand in hand
Alone after midnight before it began

I fell in love again just yesterday
Then this morning came and took it all away
Strung out on a high wire for all to see
My heart the famous casualty
