10 months ago, I posted about the utterly amazing Amy Heffernan. Her marketing/PR company, who I praised highly in the post, continued to keep me updated in some pretty cool and personal ways, and kept my interest.

However, none of the other artists they sent my way clicked as Amy did, until, finally, both Amy and her company realised I wanted a new album release by Amy, and subsequently obliged.

Okay, I admit I may not have had anything to do with Amy’s producing a new album.

Although…new is a strong word, as 3 of the songs appeared on her last long-player, “Being Awesome”. Interestingly, at the time of my last post, I said there were any number of other songs on that album which I could have posted about – and it’s the only song of the 3 appearing on both that I didn’t post about last time around which is the standout this time.

“Knowing” is a anthem, but one with a keen edge – an anthem about two people who promised the world to the other, but, just as importantly, promised to tell the other if that world changed, if things just weren’t quite the same. And only one kept that promise.

A song of knowing you’ll be okay, but not understanding. Of feeling betrayed. Of broken promises.

Guitars. Drums. And fifteen seconds, from 1:45 to 2:00, worthy of a clenched fist held aloft in a sold-out 200,000 person venue.

Listen to this one at full volume, and let everything go in a cathartic singalong.

Remember when we both swore we never drag this down
We’d keep our heads about us and our feet upon the ground
Remember how we talked about the precious and the pure
We’d know if it was over we promised to be sure

How could you let this go so far knowing

You lost your faith
And I’ve already been replaced
Some how, some way
I think I’ll be ok
But how could you let me go so far knowing

We’ve both been through the drama we both played all the games
Now that we have eachother we won’t make the same mistakes
And all those tragic endings let’s just leave them in the past
Hoping we discovered something that’ll last

How could you let this go so far knowing

You lost your faith
And I’ve already been replaced
Some how, some way
I think I’ll be ok
But how could you let me go so far

Knowing you’re moving on Knowing you’re so far gone
Knowing I’m not your last Knowing you’re never coming back
Couldn’t you tell me, couldn’t you tell me Couldn’t you tell me, couldn’t you tell me
Just tell me

You lost your faith
Some how, some way I think I’ll be ok

You lost your faith
And I’ve already been replaced
Some how, some way
I think I’ll be ok
But how could you let me go so far knowing
