Mr. Big >
Eric only brought an acoustic guitar to Vancouver, so we ran it through an amp and did our best to make it sound like an electric. Close enough, for a demo.

Eric's a great singer, with one of those rare voices and a real gift for phrasing.
Lyrics: I wanna know was it love or money
Come clean, tell the truth about what you've done
Why did you give your love to another man?
Girl, I believed you were the one

I shoulda known I'd be caught in the middle
No way out - no alibis
I've tried my best but I don't understand
What's so good about long goodbyes-ya

Never say never
Cuz I still remember
How we thought that love never ends
Through good times and bad times
It's always a find line
I'll never say never again

So far so good
You showed me how love is misunderstood
Whatever it takes
I've made some mistakes
But never again

Never say never
Cuz now we're together
We'll keep holdin' on till the end
One look in your eyes and I knew I'd decided
To never say never again
Never again
