This is very slightly different from the version I linked to on MeTa some months ago.

And there was supposed to be a line break in those lyrics.

Yeah, I have the same problem with the line breaks. As for the song: wow. I didn't hear the other version, but this is really good, man. How many people played in it?

Thanks. Two people, the tuba player and myself.

really? no girl singing? You reach some high notes. Anyways, I like it a lot, congratulations again.

Glad you dig the tune. It is slightly pitchshifted, which accounts for the fact that it's in the key of G but only if you use A=430 or so. I recorded the guitar tracks in G, then decided it was too high and too fast, so I slowed it down until it was almost but not quite in F#, recorded vocals, then changed my mind and sped it up again until it was almost back in G. But I like how it makes my voice sound a little different.

Eventually I'll write a song for every girl's name so I can always have the perfect ice breaker. "Svetlana? No kidding! I wrote a song called Svetlana!"

Also, we've started recording the album version. It's going to be epic. And there will be harpsichord.

Steve has a girly voice! Steve has a girly voice!

A flawless, sweet, heartbreaking motherfucking girly voice. OH HOW I HATE HIM!
