Description
Last Fall Woody's wife was diagnosed with a rare Life-threatening disease called Amyloidosis.Of course all of her family and friends were in shock ,and in a state of disbelief.After the initial shock wears off people go through a range of emotions trying to cope with such bad news.Woody and I were in the studio a few weeks later just talking and we had both reached a point where we were feeling some anger and frustration.Why her of all people?....Then we wrote this song.

Lyrics
Crying in the pillow,
hoping no one hears.
Trying to keep the promise,
without tears
This happens more and more,
I'm not proud.
I thought I was strong enough.
I hope you'll understand.

Amy go away,,,,Amy go away please leave me alone.
Please leave me alone.

How do I carry on?

How do I go to church without questioning my faith?

Amy go away please leave me alone.
Amy please go away please leave me alone....

Catharsis...
No better way to get one's feeling out of one's head than by sending them through music. The pain is here, for sure, but your ability to focus that as you have here is quite a remarkable feat. (I would have liked having the lyrics...I assume they were/are important, but I am having a tough time catching them clearly.)

Therapeutic.
Emoting! Somber, but very real subject. This song has me thinking of the difference between just hearing a song and, knowing some background, as I did here. Great guitar emotions. Heart beat: I can't articulate effectively, but it's thought provoking.

The flat-line and then heart beat sounds in that order are an indication that she is on the other side of treatment and alive and well(for now)...Thanks for the comment,,,Much appreciated.

Why her of all people? - the big unanswerable question in these circumstances.

The tone of those fuzzy guitars is very good - as is the riff they're playing. Aching lyrics. The guitar solo expresses your mood well. Fine performance.

Sad back story, J, but you and Woody have made a dynamic statement, despite the circumstances. Woody's heartfelt vocals provide some insight into what he must be going through and your classic rock guitar riffage defines angst. Take care, Peter.

Yea that ending was supposed to be a flat-line sound morphing into a heartbeat,but I liked the way it sounded and just left it as is...Glad your ears picked up on it.Thanks so much for the comment.

Lots of feel in this in the playing and the vocals ... I like the warm fat tone of the guitar ... expressive lead, good one! Grief can be an inspiration. Great ending ... says a lot.
Cheers

What a way to express frustration
Thanks for sharing, a very heart felt song. Mean guitar that even due to these discouraging circumstances I enjoyed. Thoughts and prayers your way.

Sorry to hear about her illness
I remember thinking my life was over at the end of 08 when I was diagnosed with stage 4 vocal cord cancer. I never would have thought I would be where I am now (at that time). Just gotta keep the faith and fight the good fight. Sounds like she has a lot to fight for! Great track! Hoping for the best for your friends!

Dealing with lose
Great place for song... one of the reasons we sing is to overcome heart break and anger. Well conceived and the production works to support the emotional material, a rare thing!

Catharsis
Tough situation. The raw expressive energy of this emotional song certainly represents a catharsis. Music may not be a cure, but it certainly can help us cope with intractable circumstances.

Riffing
Man I'm so glad that riffs are back at MJs big time. All we need to do is get them back into the mainstream of music. This is fantastic stuff. The raw emotion is felts as deeply in the guitars as the voice. Outstanding bluesy rock.

Raw sound and delivery, love the angry guitar solo.

Cathartic stuff.
