You were mine. I think it's one of the best things he's written and no one seems to take notice to it.

I know.. But we still at least have a few performances that have been around for a few years. Honestly.. People say things like mstos of tfe or whatever is his best material in the past 10 years.. And songs like this never mentioned.. BS. The acoustic and Chicago stuff he was writing and performing towards the end of zwan and right before tfe is leagues ahead of anything else he's done in the past 10 years, and even ahead of some of the sp1 material. He made a huge mistake not putting this stuff out.

doesn't really go anywhere or have any dynamic. it's a fine song though.

And what's wrong with it not going anywhere? I think it sits in a very nice
Place of some sort of tranquility, and doesn't need to move beyond that. But as far as arrangement, guitar playing, lyrical content goes, I feel it moves nicely and is a adventurous on its own.

Naah, not bad but not one of his best either. Nice to practice your guitar picking but the lyrics???? The chorus is a recycled Annie-Dog.
I'd like to listen to a proper recording, though

Could you please explain how the chorus is a recycled Annie dog?

Maybe I'm wrong and it's not Annie-Dog....um...but I'm sure he sings
"Mine,mine, you were always mine....possessed by my taste"
somewhere on Adore. And yes, I'm a lyrics-facsist.

This song kicks ass, thanks for posting it.

Reminds me a lot of Nick Drake.

Good song as is Come Back Home.
Actually it gives me more pleasure listen to it than anything from Oceania...
