My Curse

Album: As Daylight Dies (2006)
Play Video


  • KE frontman Howard Jones sings here about a love that has left him, and his curse is that he cannot be with her. The video, directed by Lex Halaby, plays out a rather mystical storyline, but the band's guitarist, Adam Dutkiewicz, has a much more grounded interpretation of the song. "That's just about chicks," he said in his Songfacts interview. "A lot of Howard's songs are about girls. It's always a topic guys can relate to."
