This song was intended to be the first single off Crayon’s second album. We had had some success with the prior two singles “Learning How to Love Again” and “Carry Me Back” off of our first album, and thought this song was more single-y than either of those. When Wayne and I took it around to radio, one of the program directors told us he liked the song and would be happy to play it if we would be so kind as to take out one of the words. The word in question was, “shit.” Back in 1981 you weren’t allowed to talk shit on the air, even if you wanted to. So, I changed the lyric to something more shitty, something I didn’t like, because I couldn’t think of anything else. In the end, it didn’t matter because despite having a fully completed album ready for release, and a song off it that was assured radio airplay, we never put it out. Instead, Wayne and I spontaneously packed up, left town, and moved to San Francisco, where all would be forgotten, and I would begin writing songs for a third Crayon album. In hindsight, that’s what you call letting a dream get away.
