about

Inspired in equal parts by Chicago and Texas blues, Muddy Waters is strongly represented, as is Freddie King in both Matt’s fiery guitar soloing and the time signature changes reminiscent of King’s Woman Across the River. Its lyric deals with betrayal of trust and it features some great ensemble playing and with the exception of the lead vocal and a 2nd guitar overdub, is all recorded live in the studio, as is the vast majority of the album.

lyrics

Leap of Faith (Taylor)

You let me down but it’s water off a ducks back
You tried to turn it around but I can’t go for that
Don’t beat yourself up cos there’s a queue for that
And I won’t ever give up you know that’s a fact
Nothing in this life is guaranteed
We all have a path to take
Sometimes you’ve just got to take a leap of faith

They say all is fair in love and war
But whose side are you on
And what the hell are you fighting for
Don’t look over your shoulder cos there’s noone there
I could track you down but that would mean I cared
Nothing in this life is guaranteed
We all have a path to take
Sometimes you’ve just got to take a leap of faith

Only time will tell the story’s end
But I know one day you’re gonna need a friend
So if you look me up you’d better bear in mind
I could have knocked you down but am I really so unkind
Nothing in this life is guaranteed
We all have a path to take
Sometimes you’ve just got to take a leap of faith
