Another of the 3 original multi-tracked demos James Redding created in an effort to start an alt-country side-project he intended to call "Close To Broken." As it turned out, his bandmates in Union Pulse had so much turn-over, he was able to redefine the band's sound between its second and third albums, and Close To Broken became an obsolete idea.


I need you to take it easy, remember the way you pray
And maybe to shine a candle instead of a pitch black tease
The night is a bit too easy when you're running away from right
And maybe it's hard to handle, but get up from off your knees

Take it easy - you gotta' take it easy.

The skyline along the freeway was changing along with you
As hours passed so slowly the moment was all we knew
I know you're afraid of daylight, I've seen you on the run
But imagine eternal darkness : then imagine a midnight sun

Take it easy - you gotta' take it easy.

Tuning a rusty six-string under wicked moonlight's eyes
Take a trip down heaven's alleys, let the rainy night baptise
Walking behing a shadow you ain't what you seem
You're never as close to daylight as the deepest darkest dream
