This song is very special to me. I wrote it around 2009. It's been a very long-standing song in my original music repertoire. I had plans to record it forever, and finally just went for it in 2022.

Houston Hill plays the bass on this track. You can hear the guitar/bass interplay that made the signature sound in our former band. Very Flea/Frusciante in nature. Even the end riffs are reminiscent of Scar Tissue.

I like how it's very ambiguous in the influences. The first bit is Rolling Stones/Eagles '70s acoustic Rock, with some Hendrix and Soul here and there. A bit of Jim Croce and Boston too. Then it goes into the R&B/Soul of the end, in a 2000s Chili Peppers style.

I love it.
