Working On A Love Song

Running Time: ?:??

Songwriters: Miles Zuniga, Rusty (from Scotland)

Notes:

  • According to Miles, he wrote "Working On A Love Song" while at a songwriters retreat in Italy. He worked with a Scottish songwriter named Rusty. He told Rusty, "I need to write a song for my wife, and it's gotta be sweet." Rusty wrote several lines in the song, including the last line "Just to find out you were gone."
  • Fastball began playing this song live as early as May 2007. They played it routinely as part of their live set from Fall 2007 to Spring of 2008. Since then, the song has rarely been played live, the one noted time being an acoustic performance at the Belmont Hotel in Dallas, TX.
  • The lack of recent performances of "Working On A Love Song" has led to speculation that the song may not appear on the band's forthcoming album.
  • It was confirmed that "Working On A Love Song" would not be on 'Little White Lies' when the album's track listing was released on January 15, 2009.

Release History:

lyrics

How can I express
How I miss your kiss
When you're half a world away
And I never told you so
I'm working on a love song
Before I get home

I can't get you on the phone
I can't get no dial tone
So I've got to hop a train
On my way to Rome
I'm working on a love song
Before I get home

I....All the faces, all the lights
I....I'll be home tomorrow night
I've done two for the money
One for the show
I'm working on a love song
Before I get home

I....All the faces, all the lights
I....I'll be home tomorrow night
I watch a movie on the plane
But the movie's kinda slow
So I'm working on a love song
Before I get home

Well they took me off that plane
I got in line at JFK
And I woke up a little late
Took a taxi home
And I finished this love song
Just to find out you were gone
And I finished this love song
Just to find out you were gone
