about

This one is a lot of fun playing live. I came up with the main riff and loved the room that it had. Once the lyrics came a long, I brought it to the band and we started trying to find a way for it not to be too monotonous. Once we added all the dynamics in, it felt great and turned into one of our favorites to do live even though it's so simple. We didn't plan on it being the title track, but when we got into the studio, it turned into this great landscape of different sounds and layers. Once the horns were added, we made the final decision. It just seemed right.

lyrics

You tried so hard to change me
But in the end, you only changed yourself
And you took all the pieces to rearrange me
And hid them up somewhere on a shelf

And I tried so hard to love you
and do all that you'd want me to
And I know you'll move on without me
But I'll still go on, loving you
Yeah, I'll still go on, loving you

And I gave all that you asked for
I gave it all till the giving gave out
But still I'd have given you so much more
If I had a heart to live without

So go ahead, and forget all about me
Run to him, like I know you're bound to do
I'll watch you live on without me
But I'll still go on, loving you
Yeah, I'll still go on, loving you
