about

This song was another one that we revamped during pre production giving it some new parts.

When I first wrote this song I wanted to write a song with a really strong hook for the chorus and originally the entire song was made up of the chorus and short verses.

This song has a different feel from the other GOMI stuff and fits along the lines of the song GUMBO. For the longest time the song was untitled until the band we used to share a practice space with called "Tell me about the rabbits" got a show playing at the Phoenix zoo.

They were really proud of it and kept telling us how it was going to be their big break. A big boy show so to speak, so I named the song after them.

Interesting note. While recording we wanted there to be some surfy sounding guitar parts during the verse. Well we couldn't find a whammy bar in the studio for Jed to use. So Jamie shoved a screw driver in the hole of the strat where the whammy bar went and worked the tremolo that way while Jed strummed the parts. There is a picture of it on our Facebook gomi page.

lyrics

It's only ever, never
Lost forever, but I'll stay here

Been a long time since I've been had
It's a lonely sight without a heart that beats for you
Been a long time since I've been had
Feeling like you want it bad enough oohh

If this house of cards that I've built has to fall down around me I'll still

It's only ever, never
Lost forever, but I'll stay here
Till forever is over
We'll brave the weather, we're safe here

Been a long time since I've been had
Feeling like you want it bad enough eaahhh
It's all we've known

It's only ever, never
Lost forever, but I'll stay here
Till forever is over
We'll brave the weather, we're safe here
