"Back Of My Hand" as written by and Gemma Claire Hayes....
I'll be seeing you tomorrow
I'll be seeing you again
God knows we've said so little
I'd go so far as to call you a friend

But there's something in your ways
That keeps me vying for a connection
And I know you feel the same
It's become a two-way addiction

Come on and give me your heart
Write it on the back of my hand
And say it's forever

Well we never really said goodbye
Kinda left it in the air
And as the train pulled off I knew you loved her more

Oh no no no no
I'm not afraid to lose
Oh no no no no
Just give me some time and I'll walk to a different groove

Go on and give her your heart
Write it on the back of her hand
And say it's forever

Go on and give her your heart
Write it on the back of her hand
And say it's forever

That's alright, that's ok, the thoughts of you are leaving
That's alright, that's ok, the thoughts of you are leaving
Anyway, are fading anyway

Come on and give her your heart
Write it on the back of her hand
And say it's forever

Come on and give me your heart
Come on and give me your heart
Come on and give me your heart

    General CommentI love Gemma Hayes, the way she sings what she writes just moves me.

    I think in this song, she is telling a story implying 3 people, her, the man she loves with whom she had a great connexion, and the woman he loves more than her.

    It is more about the way you are In, the other person promises you a forever and you buy it because you think the kind of connection you have is one of a kind, but then he leaves to another one to whom he promises the same things, and all you have to do is to move on and erase the thoughts of him.

    a way to say that good things never last ..

    General CommentI just love this song. It's amazing. Even though it's pretty old, it's just one of the songs that I can listen too over and over again, for hours, and it's always on my MP3 player and on my playlists. Gemma Hayes is simply amazing. Her sweet, mellow, calm, different sound is just awesome! :)
