If Only For A While

(oehler/goedken)

On this twisted night
He’s losing strength
Left alone
Here on the brink
How should he feel?
What will she think?

Living for the moment
Hoping for a smile
This will keep me going
If only for a while

In this twisted life
He’s losing hold
Left alone
Here in the cold
How should she feel?
Why should he think?

Fighting for the moment
Living for a smile
This will keep me going
If only for a while

At this twisted place
He’s lost again
Left alone
Here at the end
How should he feel?
What will she think?

Hoping for the moment
Fighting for a smile
This will keep me going
If only for a while.

[EO] Started out as a drum-n-bass track.  And boy did that not work at all.  Then I replaced it with big squishy pad noises, and that worked better.  Then I thought as long as I was using squishy string pads, why not use real strings?  Toss in a fretless bass, some high-register peter-hook-style bass noodling, some reverb, and I had myself a song.
