"Appreciation" as written by and James Adkins Thomas Linton....
Thank you honey for reminding me
How long you can stare at someone
And never see, really see
I want so bad just to understand
How I'm gonna let more time go
Without trying, without trying

We build, we box, we carry on
As people we forgot
Strange we come to find ourselves
Not knowing we're lost

There's something I feel that I haven't felt since
Since I was a kid
Hey, you made my heart just break
It just breaks

You know I want time
I know you want space
Gonna do what I can
Hey, whatever it might take
What it takes

We build, we box, we carry on
As people we forgot
Strange we come to find ourselves
Not knowing we're lost

We build, we box, we carry on
As people we forgot
Strange we come to find ourselves
Not knowing we're lost

We build, we box, we carry on
As people we forgot
Strange we come to find ourselves
Not knowing we're lost

    General CommentIt's either "stare at" or "stay with."

    General CommentAwesome song! I think it's about a relationship hitting a certain point where the singer realizes he is not the same person he used to be (when he entered the relationship). This affects his relationship to the point of it ending. He wants to make it work but isn't fully committed, perhaps because deep down he realizes it's just not meant to be and it just too much effort to keep it going. Its about boxing up and moving on...

    We've all been there :)

    Great song! Epic! That guitar at the end, kills it!!!! JEW is one of the best most-underrated bands of all time! World class.
