What a great and underrated song. Except that it's a demo from Mellon Collie there doesn't seem any more info out there. Would be great if some better version would surface.

I had heard about the song so much earlier than I actually heard it that I felt a little underwhelmed. I agree that it could have a been a good start on an Adore track or b-side.

Masterpiece.
Probably better than anything SP released after 2007. Just.

Nice cover, man. Very impressive. You're a worship leader, aren't you?

Not listened to this song in so long I'd almost forgotten about it. So i added it to my playlist of non-album SP. pretty telling that it has been in my head rather than the TbK stuff, and it didn't even make TAFH or Judas 0!

Still it is quite a pretty song and jczeroman, i like your cover, pretty sweet.
