Hold on tight
And everything will be all right
I never really felt this way before

Don't let go
There's still time for us
So let's take it slow
I wish that I could give you so much more

La la la la, etc.
La la la la, etc.

Far away
And maybe we'll be coming back someday
Together in the end
To sing with you again

Ah ah ah
Da da da

I never really felt this way before
Don't be sad
There was a time and place for what we had
If there was just another chance for me to sing to you

La la la la, etc.
La la la la, etc.

There's never enough time for the ones that you love

Last Song: Worst track so far. I just hate the sappy strings. Even the la-la-la's are bothersome. The lyrics are generic and confusing. It sounds like a song for Melinda maybe at the beginning, but supposedly it's a song about the end of the BBs reunion? Huh?  This is more like something I would expect from Bruce Johnston than BW. It doesn't seem like a BW production to me at all. Very disappointing, since this track was being so highly touted. On The Island was quite pleasant though.

Zooey's vocal reminds me a bit of Marilyn. Could totally picture the song American Spring style.

And wow. Once again Brian hits some notes on "Last Song" he hasn't hit in a long long time. Not necessarily in terms of how high, but moreso in quality. This guy is messing with us. He can sing great falsetto when he wants. Even now.

I'm not questioning that it's a BW production, just that it's not what I expect from him. And not in a good way.

Wow really sad and touching.  When all is said and done ultimately it doesn't matter which side of the fence you fall on.  Laid bare, the fact that two friends who were once so close have spent so many years battling various guises of estrangement is nothing short of tragic.  The silver lining of course is that they both have family and friends around them and seem to both be leading genuinely happy lives.  But still this song is to Mike Love what "Lay Down Burden" was to Carl and what "Like A Brother" was to Brian.

You know ... this reminds me of some of Dennis's orchestral stuff. Same trick of switching between bombast and painful personal reflection.

Great stuff, what a sentiment from BW and a nice close to the album, glad he took the lead vocal... sounds like he really put a lot of work into it! Isn't it amazing when art has the power to either make people cry or sneer so what and try to negate it? Still pushing buttons... and those lyrics! I know they don't have the emotional heft and power of "Pisces Brothers," but if Cousin Mike can spare a few minutes this year to listen to it i'd love to hear what the sentimental sap thinks of them.

Once he finishes consulting his lawyer about it mentioning taking it slow, anyway.

"Are you sure we can't do anything?"

"It's a no-go, Mr. Love.

Loved On the Island too... Cute song, nice relaxed atmosphere! I think this is going to nudge TLOS out of "fave BW solo album" spot for me.

To my ears, this sounds as much like a Brian Wilson production as Midnight's Another Day.  I'm not sure who is credited for either song, but they both sound like what I'd expect from a seasoned/mature Brian Wilson.  It seems what a lot of people want is 1965 vintage Brian Wilson production.  I'd say that is about as realistic as him whipping out a 1965 vintage falsetto.  And while I think he could get closer to both than he does, he chooses not to.  If people keep judging his current choices by his 1965 choices there will be nothing but disappointment.  We are all free to dislike what he is doing, but it seems silly to be stuck in the past.

Krab: out of curiosity, do you think Runaway Dancer sounds like a BW production?  I just saw your ranking and you put that song surprisingly near the top.  To me that sounds nothing like a BW production.

Ontor is right.  I think Mike will, correctly, perceive the meaning of this song and call Brian and set up some future work together, as the song longs for. At least he should. Brian is making an overture for sure.

Loved both tracks. I think this album is a grand slam instead of a bunt.

Very,very,very nice. When Brian sings in his range, the emotional effect is upped by orders of magnitude. Of a piece with "Summer's Gone" (could have fit very easily on TWGMTR. I like it a lot on first listen and it's going to be a grower: up there in the top five on this album. If it is the last song, then, yes, fitting and impressive.

But, be honest, as with "Lay Down Burden", if you'd not been told it's (allegedly) about a specific subject beforehand, you'd never divine that from the lyric.

"On The Island" ?  Like the track, mellow and laid back. Brian's bvs are likewise delightful. And... er, that's all.
