mp3 of the day: The Half Of It

Bit like "Dear Prudence", this one, but it's got its own goodness. Lots of arpeggios and descenders, the inevitable losing battle of age over surface sheen, and pop like it should be. We don't really play this one, but we might one day.

The Half Of It

Better get dressed in your brand new vest and your red striped hose
Put em in pairs and you're unawares of how the cold grows
Time to dream is long past God knows

A woman like you can make herself look so good
Sick to death of the unawares nature of the beasts around you

Dare, all you ever do is tend your hair
Leave it out and trail it down the stair
Imagine all the love and care
Didn't know the half of it
Didn't know the half of it was there

Some day soon I don't know how to look at you go
Looking like death, catch your breath to see me look so low
Guess that means I'm waiting for you

You wrote your name in cheap lipstick
Across my pristine walls
Every way I looked at it
I saw the way the cards were bound to fall

Dare, trailing out your golden hair
Looks are running everywhere
Didn't know the half of it
Didn't know the half of it
Didn't know the half of it
