"Never Been any Reason" as written by and Michael A. Somerville....
Did you see any action, did you make any friends?
Would you like some affection, before I leave again?
I've been walking behind you, since you've been able to see
There's never been any reason for you to think about me.

Did you have any bad dreams, did you break any glass?
Would you be my companion, is there even a chance?
You've been talking in circles, since I've been able to cry
There's never been any reason for never telling me why yea ha

Save my life I'm going down for the last time
Woman with a sweet lovin' better than a white line
Bring a good feelin' ain't had in such a long time
Save my life I'm going down for the last time

Have you ever been lonely, do you have any fun?
Do you ever think of me, I'm just another one , yea
You never give me no answer, you never tell me the truth
There's never been any reason for me to think about you
There's never been any reason
There's never been any reason, yea haa
There's never been any reason
Save my life I'm going down for the last time.
Woman with a sweet lovin' better than a white line
Don't you know she could bring a good feelin' ain't had in such a long time
Save my life I'm going down for the last time, woah
Save my life I'm going down for the last time
Save my life I'm going down for the last time
Save my life I'm going down for the last time
Save my life I'm going down for the last time
Save my life I'm going down for the last time

    General CommentNew here so accidentally added this as a reply than as a comment. I guess you get to read it twice now. ;)


    We caught this band at a gig here in Illinois and really liked this song so added it to our sets. As i recall we sang the lyric "did you break any glass" as "did you smoke any grass" and I'm not sure if thats how we originally heard it or we just took liberty with the lyric to make it fit together better.

    Our interpretation of the song was of a Vietnam vet and his wife or girlfriend. The opening lines are actually the common questions asked of a RVN vet when he got home (I know because I am one) and the rest of the song seems to deal with the stereotyped vet being secretive, not talking and relying on drugs as a crutch.

    The "did you break any glass" may have been added to address the PTSD and any violent outbursts?

    Great song no matter how you interpret it!!

    General CommentI think TTC has it pretty close. I used to think, due to the first line "did you see any action" that it was 100% about a returning Vietnam Vet but I am not so sure that is it. Like most songs, I think it's about an ambiguous relationship with a woman (I know, how insightful). The music is great, it is no surprise it is a regular on classic rock stations. The line "save my life I'm going down for the last time" is so well placed in my opinion, it anchors the song. Something about that declaration that is so honest and refreshingly OPPOSITE of male gravitas or headstrong hubris, it's beautiful. Every now and then I think it's okay, healthy and relieving to be able to proclaim that, i.e. "I try to control the flow of my life, the flow of events, people, and circumstances, but dammit I am losing it and need help" - it's about people and their innate unrelenting need to connect to other people, and on occasion ask for help. No, I do not need therapy.

    General CommentMy mother's boyfriend was a concert manager and she got to party with many bands and her favorite was Head East. Amazing, I know! I was like NO WAY! This song is perfectly amazing and it's a shame more people haven't heard it.

    My InterpretationI'm sorry guys, but this song is not speciffically abou cocaine, but it does mention "grass" in content. It is about the Rock and Roll band guy and his hometown love. They have know each other for all their lives. He is home from being on tour, but leaving again. She is wild and loose at home, he is wild and loose on the road. He would be content to stay home with her, but she is not giving him a reason to give up the Rock and Roll lifestyle. Her loving is better than the wild life he knows on tour (white line)out on on the road and he knows the Roll and Roll lifestyle is sending him to an early grave, but he is not giving it up without a commitment from her.

    General CommentI agree with fluffy. Maybe he is talking to this girl saying that she is saving his life by loving him? "Woman with the sweet lovin, better than a white line."
