So I like the guitar line to the verses and the melody, but the chorus chords and melody, although being beautiful and dreamy and sounding a bit like Rialto (remember them?!? Their first album was AWESOME (Monday Morning 5:19 is one of the best songs ever yeah?) They also had a few good songs on their second album, like Catherine's Wheel) do not sound anything like CTA do they? Nevertheless, I always come back to it somehow, so I thought I would just demo it to get it out of my head. The words are not all done. The second verse does not even make grammatical sense and I don't like repeated Chorus words so I would have to write more. To debeautify it a bit the Chorus would need lots of skronking feedbacky e-bow dong vaguely dissonant stuff, rather than superpretty riffs, and it would be a B-side. The kind that most fans would forget about, but that the occasional one would LOVE. A bit Like Shout It Out Loud, the Oasis B-side from Stop Crying Your Heart Out, which most Oasis fans have forgotten about but which I LOVE!

Also, I am not taken with the title.
