"A Tried & Tested Method" as written by Jonathan Fearon, Lee Richard Gale and Stuart James Ogilvie....
You say you don't even know me
The recognition in your eyes gives you away
Hey could it be, was it really me?
The one that led out paths astray

I didnt want to give away too much too soon
Cynicism the mistake I drove right through
You said hard work would heal this rift I created
I should have heeded every word you say

My late confessions come through fear and alcohol
My late confessions come through fear and alcohol
I never saw you as the innocent one
I never realised 'til today

I should have heeded every word you say
I thought that you'd accept how I behaved
You said hard work would heal this rift I created
But then it's still too late for you my friend

    General Commentits about the end of a relationship brought about by him not being open with her emotionaly (1st lines of the first 2 verses), maybe trying to play it too cool thinking thats what she wants when really she wants the opposite. He doesn't realise this until too late.

    reminds me of early relationships when you're 17, 18, when things dont work out through lack of experience.
    doesn't seem to be a great amount of hurt involved in the breakup, just regret that it wont get the chance to be more.
