About the Song
The first song finished and available from the album, for sale now on iTunes and amazon.mp3.

Listen to the track and let me know what you think!

Woke up this morning on the mat there was a letter
Addressed to me and from a girl called Greta
She says how on earth could I ever forget her
The letter from Greta says how could I forget her

She says that we met at a VIP party
Up to malarkey amongst the glitterarti
I broke her fall as she showed off her karate
Up to malarkey at the karate party

It’s been 3 years since we were married in Vegas
It was a gamble but it couldn’t save us
We mortgaged our love but couldn’t make the repayments
Vegas couldn’t save us from the marriage repayments

There’s a knock at the door and Greta says I’ve come to see her
I saw you on TV claiming amnesia
You had no ID and no idea
To see you my dear and cure your amnesia

Na na na nah nah
Na na na nah nah
Na na na nah nah
Shoulda known betta than forget about Greta

How could I forget myself
When did I become someone else
Bit my bit I’m sliding into hell
It’s so long it’s like a dream
I’m sinking into reverie
I’m losing sight
I cannot breathe
Can anybody please save me

    Fantastic, especially like the bridge. Music style was reminiscent of my youth, about 30 years ago. Early punk’esqueish but also very now.

  2. Jason Says:

    Excellent Rob, I posted a more “in depth” review on Amazon.

    I was going to be your critical, balance it out reviewer but listened to the track and actually thought it wasn’t too bad at all! So I left you a positive review in the end. I did say I couldn’t pigeon hole it, but I realised what it’s like, it does for rock what Enter Shakiri do for Heavy Metal. Fuse some totally different styles together really well.

    Sorry I can’t post a review on all three, but I can’t possibly go near the “i” site!!
