Misery Monday part 7/26 - Del Amitri
Although I prefer the pre long hair and side burns Del Amitri they have produced some killer sad songs when the turn down the Neil Young tendencies. Not the saddest one they've done , I think that would go to First Rule of Love or One Thing Left to Do but something in this song strikes a chord.
Maybe it is the image of the couple in the car driving through the night in silence , maybe it is the simple use of "hon", the wondering at what exactly "the thing we've done" is? My guess is they have both left partners and he has a nagging doubt..
When you're driving with the brakes on
When you're swimming with your boots on
It's hard to say you love someone and its hard to say you don't
