Your house chased smells of sweets and cakes, strolled down around the bend. After rain, rising, springing. Aspiring to be a hill. I'd hang my hat in Hartford union. Strolling down the way to River Park, around the bend. Like gentle stemmed flowers we bloomed where we planted, so seasonal like sand. I'd hang my head in.

    General Commentdefinitely a different (but great) sound from the promise ring on the song, and it originally got me into the band, so i'll always enjoy this song the most!

    General Commenti think that this song is basically just davey thinking about a recnelty neded realtionship. alot of plays on words here, so it's hard to say what it's exactly about.

    General Commenti can remember buying this record on a 7" single when i was about 19 i think, I loved TITR at the time and i still do and admittedly hadn't heard TPR before except for in passing at friends houses or whatever and I didn't listen to E.Texas avenue for a few months after I'd got it but when i did it, it blew me away and I've loved the promise ring ever since. Anyways, I just signed up to tell that interesting story haha.
