The truth is you know I'm having a moment right now,
Where everything makes sense.
Well, I think some feeling from this sliding smooth guitar would shred right now.
And all those nights I lost by thinking way too hard and long.
I finally realize just by adding some deep end, I feel alright.

The truth is, you know we could never find a better friend to work with.
You make us feel at home.
It would make me so happy right now to hear some piano being played by my oldest friend.
And all those nights I lost by thinking way too hard and long.
I finally realize that I need some drums cracking, and I feel fine.

The truth is, my love, I love you so much that it hurts, oh.
And as cheesy as I sound I've been praticing for the moment when I do, oh I do.
And all those nights I lost by thinking way too hard and long.
I finally realize as long as I have you, I'll be alright.

The truth is, you know, I'd be nothing without everyone, oh.

    General Commenti love this song, and the album is great. i think my favorite cd is the mother cd, but i havent been able to listen to the whole thing much since i only got it today! the mechanic sounds pretty different from their previous albums, and i really like the path cd, but its awfully emo...

    General Comment"While The Mother, The Mechanic, And The Path is groundbreaking and revelatory, [Ace] Enders was feeling far from inspired right before he started the project. In fact, he was fed up with the music business and considered dropping out altogether. "I was driving home one night and I was feeling like I just had enough," he explains. "I figured I'd work construction or retail or whatever. I hated the business part of it and I was thinking that I wanted to do something that wasn't about advancing my career. I was really questioning my motives.""

    I took that from The Early November's myspace page, and I think it's pretty self-explanitory. The Early November came very close to breaking up during the making of this record. This song (my favorite on the new CD) is about how Ace came so close to giving up until he realized just how much everyone means to him. In this song, he expresses how The Early November is his life. He needs to hear some 'deep end,' (Sergio, bass player) and some slide guitar (Bill or Joe, guitarists) and some drums crackin' (Jeff, drummer), and he'll feel alright. There are other references in the song (People he works for, his love and new wife, Jennifer Enders, etc.).

    In all, this song is about how Ace came to realize how, in the midst of overpowering and overwhelming stress, he just needs these people. He plainly states this in the last line of the song.

    General Commenti love how the other instruments come in as he cues them in the lyrics. and this is just such a great song; he just needs the music, he needs his band mates, his friends, his wife, and he'll be alright.

    General CommentTEN finished their finale show in Philadelphia last year with this song. The lights started out low. Everyone was on stage by the end. They gave an adorable grand bow all together at the end. It was incredible. Epic. Gorgeous.

    I will miss this band. And the feeling this song gave me knowing he was so happy with the band at one point, yet it all just fell apart in the end.
