When we lift the covers from our feelings We expose our insecure spots Trust is just as rare as devotion Forgive us our cynical thoughts If we need too much attention
Not content with being cool We must throw ourselves wide open And start acting like a fool If we need too much approval Then the cuts can seem too cruel
Right to the heart of the matter Right to the beautiful part Illusions are painfully shattered Right where discovery starts In the secret wells of emotion Buried deep in our hearts
It's true that love can change us But never quite enough Sometimes we are too tender Sometimes we're too tough If we get too much attention
It gets hard to overrule So often fragile power turns To scorn and ridicule Sometimes our big splashes Are just ripples in the pool Feelings run high

Philip from Spokane, WaThis is one Rush song that really resonates perfectly with me. Peart's amazingly deep and lucid imagery really stirs a lot of emotion within me. Coupled with Geddy's amazing bass and Alex's solo this song bring so much to the table musically. Definitely my favorite off Power Windows.
Gabriel from Minneapolis, Mnone of the most underrated and over looked Rush songs in their catalogue.
Jason from Baldwin, NyGreat Bass Solo and one of Alex's best Guitar Solo's ever!!!
John from Asheville, NcThis song's grown on me, as has the entire album.
Tom from Highland, NyI saw RUSH several time during their 'Power Windows" Tour. This was the only song from the album that wasn't played. I love the bass line during the solo.
Arizona DJ Guy Zapoleon played UB40's "Red Red Wine" four years after it was released as part of a feature on songs that should have been hits. Listeners started requesting the tune and within weeks it was topping the Hot 100.
