This is a rarity in the world of Phil Johnson and Roadside Attraction these days. An actual, heartfelt, earnest, serious song. I haven’t released a serious song since 2005.
A lot of people ask me how I write songs. For me, it’s all about having a concept in place first. For this one, I wanted to explore the different scenarios around the phrases “The conversation had lasted for hours” and “I’m not the one”. Depending on what’s going on in the scene, those two lines can have very different implications.
I wrapped it all into the story of the stages of a relationship that starts out all dreamy and ends up… well, less dreamy. I don’t want to give away the ending if you haven’t heard it yet.
You see, I either like really funny songs or really sad songs. This one is definitely the latter. But I think it has an interesting story. So press play below and give it a listen. Then click download and grab it for whatever price you think is fair.
