This song came together quick, Paul Zombie said, " we should get George to solo over it" we asked him, and he was leaving for work, but stole about ten mins to lay down an understated, but totally shredworthy solo. it made the song pop lush.


i'm pacing the dark room
and all i have now
is the look upon your face
a wink to whisper, No.
and we never knew
we should feel
ah, we should feel

for the blaming
the fights
the silence
the shards of us
and all i have now
is the look upon your face
when you tell me its you.

and i want to matter
can you undo what you've done
so if this is what you want
come close, come closer.

the cuts we remember
the one's no one ever knows
a flame of touching
holds the price of souls
and i may never know
cuz all i have now
is the look upon your face

and i want to matter
so if this is what you want
keep close, ah keep close.
