Fortune (February Seven) Demo

Postby RFOD_HFONonsense » Mon Feb 01, 2016 9:04 pm

Is anyone as sad as me that the extra verse in February Seven from the demo didn't make it onto the album so there would be any chance of hearing it live. It gives me chills every time I hear it.

If I could only be the man that I was
The kind my friends and family could trust
But it's not me that changed that much
It's folks back home that all lost touch
Afraid of what the skeletons would say
All more reason for me to slip away.

Absolute genius.

Yes! I had to track it down on YouTube to find the demo version and it was worth it! I think it adds a lot more meaning to the song. But at the same time, maybe it was too personal to share on the final record? Not to mention it kind of sticks out in the song since it's not quite the same as the other verses

That lost verse changes the whole feel of the song for me. I love it regardless, but with that verse, it's just extra powerful.

One of my favorite songs. Love the demo version. I wish they would play it in concert!
