"You" as written by and James Christopher/burch Adkins....
When I know I'm all alone
Say your name slowly
And I know that I'm alone
But I'll carry you

Does it feel good like a memory
When you try some history
It's a dream to come around
But who doesn't then
Because the taste doesn't taste the same again

It's easy feeling righteous when you're new
All you'll get is what you wanna hear
It hurts because it should
How else am I to make it clear?

I could never be the one that you want, don't ask
Well, here's to living in the moment
'Cause it passed

Maybe your life is what I need sometimes
You took the most and best of anyone
You said to "keep me in your pocket"
So I carried you

You better choose your words carefully
Because I'm not your anything
Gonna stay here in my place
And you'll stay in yours because
Your only good is what you're good for

I pace around the room to spend the time
Waiting while the burning pictures fade
Want a thing to make you mine
And another to say it's fine

I could never be the one that you want, don't ask.
Well, here's to living in the moment
'Cause it passed, it passed.

I'm still carrying a little hope that
Maybe things could get different now
Is that so wrong, is that so wrong, is that so wrong?

Would I see you tonight
At a place we go?
I wanna make things right
Before time runs out.
Roll down the windows
Like you know they're coming
Slap my face just to feel, to feel you there again

I could never be the one that you want, don't ask.
Well, here's to living in the moment
'Cause it passed.

I could never be the one that you want, don't ask.
Yeah, here's to living in the moment
'Cause it passed.
'Cause it passed, it passed, it passed

    General Commentthis song, even though its only a demo, and on vinyl, is really really good.
    shame it got cut off of the album shortlist.

    General CommentThis song is really good. I wish it was on one of their albums. The chorus part is the best part.

    General CommentFor anyone who's interested in an MP3 of this song, if you buy the Futures CD and you place it in your computer, it will give you access to the "Secret Site" where you can download this amongst other tracks and photos.
