I think this is my and the band’s first song in 6/8 time. That’s sort of like a waltz, but more interesting. And the bridge is sort of cool, with the ominous ‘oohs’ and ‘aahs’. I also really like the baritone on this record. Baritone has a way of being sort of a low range glue that hold everything apart. The melody on this one is super old. Like years and years. I always liked it and i rewrote the song three or four times entirely hoping to find something lyrical I liked, but it took awhile I guess. It’s another in my long line of love song/horse metaphors. But any Western kid will tell you how much of a truism it is, when your parents tell you that if you get bucked off, you have to get right back on. It really happened to me, just like that. I was riding Susie, our bitchy old mare and she shook me off. I think I was six years old or thereabouts, so it was a long way to the ground, and I remember it being pretty damn cold, which always makes it worse. Before I could holler, my dad had me right back in the saddle, to dispel any fears of continuing, I guess. So the song is saying the same thing about finding your true love, I guess. Keep at it. Not that I’m any kind of expert. Sometimes you write songs to yourself.
