All we'd do
That's all we knew
You know its true
What could we do with what we blew
There's just one move through time

    General CommentMy favourite song from the EP. Haunting and so moving. Hard to believe there's no comments on it. I'm not sure what it's about, apart from maybe time being a straight line, and you being pre-destined to do what you do. The song always fills me with a sadness for some reason though.

    General CommentWhat has always amazed me with John is his ability to tell such a complex, deep and beautiful story with so few words, and sometimes even none. This particular song takes me on an emotional journey, from "I wish my dreams were are serene", and the music along with it, to a lighter-feeling, emotional section from about 1:25 onward. When John's voice comes in, it changes completely once more, a more soulful and powerful feeling. I hope everyone who sees this will agree that John is a beautiful genius.
