Lyrics
I took the keys to your car
I didn't kiss you goodbye
I'm leaving by the back door
I won't let you ask me why
Why I've gone
Cos I'm wrong
And I leave you feeling sad
And by the time you wake this morning
I'm 1 million miles from you

I left a letter and cash
To make you see what I am
Do not forget me darlin'
I have made no sacrifice
In my life
Cos I can't
And I hope that you can see
That in the cold grey light of morning
I'm a million miles from you

Stay, stay, stay
I can't work you out no way

cool
loving that echoey guitar and the bass line is perfect. nice how the BG vox come in on the second verse (instead of the first). it's funny how in retrospect the 80's had so much 60's in them. how come my 4 tracks never sounded this good?

This is the band I wanted to be in, in 1994
DG has a perfect voice and the back ups/effects are so nice. Kinda has that dreamy, "I love everything because I'm on X" sound that made that era so awesome. I love the echoing guitar too and that bass line is what I would strive for on a tight little paisley shirted tune like this one.

Downloaded in sparkling lights with cloved cigarettes roasting around me.

Quality sound
Quality sound from a cassette recording. The strong bass line is counterpointed nicely by the echo guitars and the 80's style effects. Like the vocal work too. Cool. Regards, Peter.

All this
echo is sounding so good here proving it's not what you use, it's how you use it. Love the song and the oh so smooth vocals.... great arrangement, but wouldn't expect any less from you, regards M

Love the archives. Love a 4 track gem. The tape warmth is unmistakable. I miss my yamaha MX-1 something fierce. Luscious warm reverb. I'd be interested to hear how you ping-ponged this, or who/what is on which of the 4 tracks. Squeezed a lot out of them you did.
