Well, is there really any different between one's self and one's life? Or are both just different perspectives or manifestations of the same phenomena?

In other Wouldn't It Be Nice (to Live Again) observations - there are parts that remind me of steamboat, especially that assending and descending bass line (synth bass I think). Probably not concious, but just a cool instance of a similar feel making it into two Dennis songs, I think.

It wasn't about Dennis at all. In fact it was a tribute to the late John Lennon. Strangely enough, Dennis wrote and recorded this song almost 10 years too early.

Hope that hurts...err...helps.

Hey Little Tomboy is creepy. Banging women by the pool is fun and conjures up warm summer thoughts a Beach Boys song should.

I think Dennis always wrote about himself to a point. Whoever he was married to at the time was another avenue.

We have to figure out the Question which would give the Answer meaning.
