Singled Out: Lonely H's Waiting On a Broken Heart
My girlfriend and I had been together for about 6 months at the time and it was still real hard for me to get a read on her. One moment we were in love and the other I was scared she would drop me like a bad habit. I was literally "waiting in the living room" one night as she was changing her clothes when I started writing the song. I didn't have a guitar or a piano near so I just wrote first verse in my head.
For all I knew, this girl was gonna walk out of her bedroom all dolled up for a night on town and breakup with me. And the only thing I could do to calm my nerves was to put it to music. Note: not the best solution. I started musing upon all that we could become if she just stuck it out with me. It ended up getting a little pitiful. But hey, that's a big part of me.
We're still together (sometimes it's best to ignore your gut). She even sings on the song. And she wrote a response to my song for her own record called 'Waitin' which uses the same hook. And I sing on that version too. But hers came out before ours and that's when things start getting confusing. How's about that for a Fleetwood Mac-esque web of incestuous musical drama?
Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself and learn more about the album (click on the music tab to listen) right here!
