  • Lyrics
  • This was the biggest hit the group achieved after front man John Hall left to launch a solo career. The song is about the fickle and unpredictable nature of love, pointing out that it needs tending and work over time, and often fails because people get caught up in the moment and fail to follow up on it. >>

  • Dougee from San Bernardino, CaOne of my all-time favorite songs. It came out when I was 13, and hearing it brings back vivid memories of my foray into 'phone phreaking' inspired by an old broken phone I paid 75 cents for at the swap meet. Also, the day of my swap meet visit, my big sister took me on a surprise trip to Knott's Berry Farm where I rode the legendary "Montezooma's Revenge" for the first time. A few years later, the message of the song became all too clear when I made attempts at finding romance. The lyrics ring true: love is hard to find, and when you DO find it, it takes time to grow!
