This song could stand on its own as an instrumental
, but the lyrics
really make it spectacular. I particularly like that one of the repeated verses changes tense each time it's sung, to tell the story:
You know that it's true | You know that it's true | You know that it's true | You knew it was true
When I hold you | When I hold you | When I've held you | When I held you
There'll be no secrets | There are no secrets | There are no secrets | There were no secrets
I believe it | I believe it | You must believe it | I believed it
Unfortunately, the story (as I interpret it) isn't as fit for a wedding reception as one might hope. The last version of this repeated verse tells the end of the story: the relationship is over.
Perhaps the next Moxy Früvous song to play after this one is Fly, which tells the story of two people in a relationship who realized it just wasn't working out, and decided to let each other go.
These songs are real downers but I love them so.
