One day I started thinking about the saying, "You want to have your cake and eat it too." To be honest, I never really understood this saying. But then I couldn't stop thinking about it. And then I realized that it applied to a situation that I was in. And then I wrote this song.
The recording is essentially a live recording. I just set up two mics and played it. Someday, I'd like to overdub some pedal steel on the end of it.
Get ready for a sad one but a good one, folks. Enjoy!
