As most of our songwriting goes these days, this tune came from a backyard jam where a loose arrangement of parts was shown to me by Jared, and once some lyrics and a solid melody came together, the song crystallized in a fashion that goes beyond any rational explanation.

My best friend remains to this day that this is the best song we've ever written. I can only hope our new material lives up to his high standard.

As far as the lyrical content is concerned, it was influenced by two things: a new love and reading too many philosophy books. Personification of fate ... what?


fate smiled on me today
took my hand, took me away
and fate smiled on us today
washed the air and held the fray

we tried to listen to his voice
and turn the gears inside our heads

so weak
unmatched in love
funny how we get that way
so lost
well I turn my heels and I walk right in
to a life so full what might have been without
scares me

fate called on me today
I heard my name, I heard you say
the world's so strange this day and age
truest love so hard to gauge

we tried to listen to his voice
and turn the years back in our heads
