about

One of the song ideas I've been given that I actually made a song out of. This actually made it pretty far in the running for More is Less, only without final vocals, until I gave it the axe during talks with Daniel when he listened to the album songs before it came out. Here it is now, with fresh vocal takes and unnoticeable bass. Yay!

lyrics

Welcome to the imaginary couples' retreat
Everybody sit down or grab a bite to eat
If you have a partner, take them by the hand
And you can just waltz straight out the door

Please be my guest, step inside
No need to be afraid or search for places to hide
Everybody already knows you're scared
But everyone knows we've all been there, so

Welcome to the imaginary couples' retreat
Everybody sit down or grab a bite to eat
If you have a partner, take them by the hand
And you can just waltz straight out the door

We saw you out on the balcony
You gazed at the ocean waves in the frigid breeze
Someone unobservant would probably have thought you were just tired
But we knew there was more by the telltale signs
A tear in the corner of your eye
Your face bleak and foreboding
Leaning on the railing on Valentine's
Trying to hide your feelings inside, so

Welcome to the imaginary couples' retreat
Everybody sit down or grab a bite to eat
If you have a partner, take them by the hand
And you can just waltz straight out the door

Welcome to the imaginary couples' retreat
Everybody sit down or grab a bite to eat
If you have a partner, take them by the hand
And you can just waltz straight out the door
