regrets are worthless
they misconstrue the past in sight and sound
and as lines recede
no one speaks a word of his lust
a word of dreams that've been left to rust
the tv's on and everyone stays calm.
as time has passed
no one understands and to say the least
the years have been unfair
i wanted to tell you
i miss it
i just wanted to let you know
the last year has helped me grow
i want to take you on the road
where we'll go
i'll never know
will you come along
it's easier when no place feels like home
i said i want out
i want to take you out of this
and go to California
'cause I want to take you on a ride
i'll set things right
i know the direction in which to go
i'll set things right and say goodnight.

    This is my absolute FAVORITE Midtown song. When I saw them perform it live, I fell even more in love with it. I really hope Midtown keeps putting out songs like this one. Can't wait for "Living Well..." to come out in April :)

    this song means so much to me, just the fact its abuot life and relationships, my favorite lines would be "i wanted to tell you i miss it i just wanted to let you know the last year has helped me grow i want to take you on the road where we'll go i'll never know will you come along it's easier when no place feels like home" becuase i can relate. i think its about giving time in a new relationship and learning from the old ones..which ive definitly been there before...

Just listening for the 784,654th time....and it's just perfect in every way. Just incredible. The only reason it was remade was to scoop up a boatload of money from a more modern and accepting audience. But it is a completely different song than the other one that sounds slapped together in a few takes without a thought for the meaning. This song captivates me still, after 50+ years. Takes me to the deep South and the poverty of some who lived thru truly hard times. And the powerful spirit of a poor young girl being abandoned to her future with only a red dress and her wits to keep her alive. She not only stayed alive, she turned her hard beginnings around, became self sufficient, successful and someone with respect for herself. She didn't let the naysayers and judgers stop her. She's the one sitting in the drivers seat at the end. So, not a song about a poor girl, but a song of hope and how you can rise up no matter how far down you started. There is a huge difference between a singer who simply belts out a song that is on a page in front of them, and someone who can convey an entire experience with their voice. Telling not just a story with words, but taking you inside it and making you feel like you are there, with their interpretation.

Shudder to Think
This song is timeless, and nearly 20 years after its creation, still possesses the mystique it did the first time i heard it ~1994. To me, at first blush, all those years ago, it had some kind of homo-erotic allure. The line "so that the others may do" tells of something which must be done for others to follow suit. It felt like like some kind of roxy-glam-pop invitation to sexual liberation. Upon further introspection I think the song may not have an intrinsic meaning, but simply represents a sort of "holding open the door" for people who otherwise might be affronted by this song/band's unusual style. I know, as a sort of armchair rock-historian, that there have been few bands so daring and so true to the sound that wanted to emerge from within, whether the creator wanted it or not. This band handled it with elegance and grace seldom, if ever, seen.
