Jonathan Nichols-Pethick, drummer for the Cowlix and the Boarders, had previously contributed "All Over" to the Cowlix. His ironic awareness of the details of romantic tension suited the repertoires of both bands. He co-wrote this song with his wife, Nancy, and I added the signature riff and a few lyrics (while dropping some in this rehearsal recording from Dec. 5, 1995: "You say, 'I need another drink.'") Note the tribute to "Hill Street Blues" at the end. Copyright © 1995 by Jonathan Nichols-Pethick, Nancy Nichols-Pethick and Douglas L. Hubley. All rights reserved.
