"Princess" was originally intended to accompany the very first Union Pulse album, "Eine Kleine Rockmusik", in 2003. Following their studio sessions, Redding was displeased with the feel of this version of Princes, so he left it off the album. Instead, a different version of Princess, recorded at Chicago's Lonesome Studios with Matt Brelje, made it onto the band's second album, "I Hate You. You Always Do This."


I'm a frayed backseat soul sleepless nights
Getting sit on and spit on and torn
Between dusk, dawn, and daylight is gray light
Where memories love lost is born

I'm watching the lines trailing behind
Been driving so long I think I lost my mind
It's lonely and long, this road I pursue
But I'll be just fine if it leads back to you, princess

Sometimes I hide in the dark
Because I know that I can't win this game
So look to the leaves in your teacup
While the winter wind whispers my name

I'm watching your eyes look to the skies
It may not mean much but I'm yours 'til I die
Further from home with each passing day
The winter gets colder with each step away, princess
