about

This was the first song we wrote for the EP which, along with a couple of others that didn't make the final cut, led to the idea to do a concept EP.
In this song, the protagonist is wondering whether he is to blame for his jealousy and suspicion. He is questioning at what point he would stop feeling jealous. If he could control every single one of his girlfriend's actions and watch her every second of every day would he feel better?
He concludes probably not...

lyrics

If I could have total control of everything you do
Maybe I would trust you
But like a pothole in a road
You're sending love askew
As drivers join the queue

It's like you wind down your window
And you turn off the music
No man could ever refuse it, don't offer
If I could have total control of everything you do

Would I feel secure, less unsure, set to soar?
Or would I feel the same, no aim, so plain?

If I could watch you in the bath
And watch you on the street, my sweet
Then maybe I'd believe

But if I wound down your window
And saw a look on your faces
Don't think I'd ever erase it from my mind
If I could have total control of everything you do

Would I feel secure, less unsure, set to soar?
Or would I feel the same, unmanned plane, in rough terrain?
I bet I'd feel the same
