I needed time and time Waiting and awaiting I told you I wouldn't go solo Defenses were so low I needed time to see Thought you promised that you'd wait for me Trust me I wouldn’t change my mind I had left my second thoughts behind You invaded new territory Could've approached peacefully Trust me I'd never leave your side Couldn't find a better place to hide Trust me I'd never leave your side Couldn't find a better place to hide I needed time and time Waiting and awaiting I told you I wouldn't go So low defenses were Slow down restless mind Remember one dream at a time Was just looking for a patch of sun Now I miss you every day you're gone Was just looking for a patch of sun Now I miss you every day you're gone Was just looking for a patch of sun How I miss you every day you're gone How I miss you every day you're gone How I miss you every day you're gone You're gone How I miss you

Every love What a love What a play Every day Every life What a sight What a fight Every night A week is a year Was Long ago Yes, I should have saved a photo Every name What a name What a shame Every claim Every try What a cry What a blast Every past A week is a year Was Long ago Yes, I should have saved a photo

I'm sad to say I've got to work tonight Important things you see Though I'd love to talk I want to know What happened here But I'm too tired now You know I love you Tell me all But just not now It's this disturbing sound Must have some quiet time I'm sorry love But saturday I'll listen I'll listen with interest, I'll say "Is it true? Can't believe it! That's great!" But tonight I have nothing to say But please stay You say "Later does not always come" I know but I can't control time I have tried, I have tried, I have tried You know I'm really different now You know my love, I am

In November 2012, we released “Goodbye,” a Mini-LP from one of our favorite Swedish bands, SPEEDMARKET AVENUE, where we could hear Isak Klasson bare his soul after a break-up, along the same lines as FLEETWOOD MAC’s “Rumours”, Frank Sinatra’s “Watertown”, TREMBLING BLUE STARS’ “Her Handwriting”, and Bob Dylan’s “Blood On The Tracks”, but with the clear mark of the band’s identity. Now we’re taking “How I Miss You” from that same Mini-LP and we’re releasing a digital single that keeps the melancholic and sad feeling, stilly influenced by the same creative process, though the title track stands out for its marvelous chorus and the beauty of the guitar arrangements.

Once again, the band makes it clear that their compositional skills are all-terrain, and they aren’t afraid to try any format or style. The two previously-unreleased songs from this single highlight the most devastating and painful part of the process of separation that gave way to this significant stage in the group’s successful career. “A Week Is A Year” is a slow, delicate song, which reflects how painfully slow the passing of time can be when emotions are running high. It’s an evocative song, with pure arrangements and a bittersweet aftertaste. On the other hand, “Saturday I’ll Listen” is one of those heartbreaking songs that can only be written from some the darkest place inside you, and that leaves a permanent mark on the more sensitive souls. There are a few small sparks of light in the disarming guitars, and the song’s lyrics hint at the beginning of a new stage, despite being deeply submerged in a painful process that hasn’t finished just yet.

We are still devoted fans of Isak Klasson and his band, who are capable of making us move our hips or making us cry, with the same inspiration and brilliance, leaving us at their mercy, cradled by their great songs.
