about

the tale of a guy's relationship with his wife breaking down...bit by bit...piece by piece

lyrics

Little by little,
Is how she says I've changed.
She says it's nothing you can put your finger on,
She just knows it's not the same, anymore.

Want to look in the mirror,
And see my smile.
It's the one thing about me,
That I still like.

But it's getting harder,
Than I know it should be.
It's getting harder,
To see the wood from the trees.
I'm going down by degrees

Bitter tastes bitter,
You can't pretend it's sweet.
You can kiss and try to make it better,
But you have to admit defeat, sometimes.

Want to look in the mirror
And see my smile.
It's the one thing about me,
Someone else might like.

But it's getting harder,
Than I know it should be.
It's getting harder,
To see the wood from the trees.
You're wearing me down by degrees.

Down by degrees.
I'm down on my knees.
I think it's time that we,
Set eachother free.

It's getting harder,
Than I think it should be,
If I loved you and if you loved me.
It's getting harder,
To see the wood from the trees,
Little by little and piece by piece.
It's getting harder,
Than I know it should be,
You're wearing me down by degrees,
I'm getting tired,
Being down on my knees,
So why don't we set eachother free?

Want to look in the mirror,
And see my smile....

about

Rumour Den County Antrim, UK

Formed in the late 1990's by Al Gilmore & Steve Simms, Rumour Den did a lot in a short space of time including a self- financed single 'Under A Cloud' and album 'Melancholics Anonymous' - both to critical acclaim. However, problems outside music meant the band had to split up for several years. But now Gilmore & Simms have put a new line-up together and are determined to make up for lost time ... more
