Mike posted a blog about a week and a half ago with the score for "Promises, Promises", one of the songs on the new album...if you haven't seen it yet and want to CLICK HERE
The lyrics are:
"I'm only twenty three for another hour give or take. I'm a fan of yours and I need a good mistake. I'm not a sinner or preacher. All I have is sleight of hand. I do magic tricks for all the boys in the band. Baby could I be the rabbit in your hat? I'd swing if you hand me hand me the bat. I'm on the road of least resistance. I'd rather give up than give into this. So promise me only one thing would you? Just don't ever make me promises. No promises. I've never done this before promises promises. But I'm enjoying the illusion and the things my body says. Now you see me now you don't, oh how well you disappear. What are you running from? And may I interfere? Baby could I be the rabbit in your hat? I'd swing if you hand me hand me the bat."
The first thing I thought of when I read the lyrics was "Pardon Me"..."A decade ago I never thought I would be at twenty three on the verge of spontaneous combustion, woe-is-me"
What is the significance of twenty three? Maybe I'm reading too much into it but I very seriously doubt Brandon would write more lyrics using the age of twenty three by coincidence...
