sounds pretty close to me after a few listens.

Here Comes My Man

And how much time do you think that we have?
If I wanted to I could start over again
Let the good night decide who she wants me to find
And I'll never let you drop another tear in my eye

Singing oh sha la la, oh sha la la, listen honey, here comes my man
Singing oh sha la la, oh sha la la, listen honey, here comes my man

If all my life, I never had a chance
Don't you think I knew about all your pretty girlfriends?
But I waited for you, gave you time to decide
But you never saw it from anybody else's side
So I packed up my things and I faced up my doubts
You know I think I will grow my hair back out
Nevermind what you think, nevermind what you like
I'll take it out to the streets for somebody else to admire

Singing oh sha la la, oh sha la la, listen honey, here comes my man
Singing oh sha la la, oh sha la la, listen honey, here comes my man

Maybe time will tell you why I got so much hell to sell you
Please, please understand me
Oh you can't just dance around me
Maybe your work will love you when I'm just not there to hold you (one of these days)
Maybe your pride can be your companion (one of these days)
But I just won't be there to stand for it
Not one more minute will I stand for it

You'll find me singing oh sha la la, oh sha la la, listen honey, here comes my man
Singing oh sha la la, oh sha la la, listen honey, here comes my man

I think this is the intro (in standard tuning)
e----------------------------------------------------------
b---4-3----------------------------------------------3-3
g--------5-3----------------------------5-5-5-3-5------
d-------------5--5-5-3-5-3-3-3-3-3-------------------
a---------------------------------------------------------
E---------------------------------------------------------

And then it's just repeated

Not a lady, but I think the line 'So I packed up my things and I faced all my doubts, you know I think I will grow my hair back out' has to be one of the most powerful lines Brian has ever written, if not the most. It's just so wonderful on so many levels, especially from the girl perspective.

Maybe a lady could tell me why this is a really amazing line from their perspective?

As a lady I will say he did scarily well. As in I get confused that I'm hearing a male voice. I feel like I do when I hear him sing the Katy Perry song. It's great but sounds so weird coming from a guy.

The line 'So I packed up my things and I faced all my doubts, you know I think I will grow my hair back out' is so spot on. Lots of girls change their hair as a way of moving on from a relationship. Cut it short if it's long, or grow it out if it's short. I think cutting it short is more common though because that's a quick change. And I think anyone can relate to having doubts about getting out of a situation. It's easier to stay in the relationship sometimes but it's better to get out when it's no longer good for you.

The 'nevermind what you think, nevermind what you like. I'll take it out to the street for somebody else to admire' is also perfect. I think girls (usually) put a lot more effort into looking good for a guy than a guy does for a girl and part of that includes wearing our hair how a guy likes it or whatever. Subtle things that guys often don't even notice.

And the whole theme of not feeling appreciated is huge for girls. It's very common for a girl to feel loved by her guy and have fun with him but not feel like he appreciates all she does for him.

Boys, take a lesson from Brian here, haha. Damn Hollie is lucky.

My BIG ex had short hair because I loved it, we had a terrible messy breakup after dating for 3 years and this song destroys my life

I really can't wait to see the covers start flooding in on Youtube, because there's often a lot of really great female artists who cover Gaslight songs on Youtube. It'll be interesting to hear this in a female voice.

The only problem with this song is that I don't quite know if the other songs on the album will be able to compare, at least emotional weight-wise. This is a heavy, deep song. I'll be delightfully surprised if Brian is able to top this one (my money's on Mae, based only on what he's said about it).

What I've heard already of Handwritten has already topped this song in emotional weight. That song hit me hard. It's hard for me to explain why and I can get why others wouldn't have the same level of reaction but that song feels like I'm having a one on one conversation with Brian. I heard it and I was like if I kept a diary I'd swear he stole it for that song.

If Handwritten is emotionally heavier than Here Comes My Man, then expect me to break down into tears.

Haha, I think it all depends on what you relate to most. I've had not fun break ups but never a really bad one so I relate to Here Comes My Man but it doesn't hit home as much as it might for some.

But Handwritten. It's a long story but I connected to that song so much I did tear up when I first heard it. As much as I love and connect to music it take A LOT to get me to actually cry over a song.

My opinion is that in spite of not at all being from Brian's perspective, lyrically this is with a doubt the most confident, badass song he's ever written. It's fascinating to hear just how contrary this character is to his general persona in his lyrics, which tends to be a nervous, heart-on-his-sleeve kid who's still trying to strike up his cool. Which is obviously the persona we all fell in love with initially, but it's an interesting departure to have a song about "not caring what you think," etc. and pulling it off in spades.

That is true. Although I like that there's still a vulnerability to the character. She's determined to end this thing, she knows she's making the right choice but it's still such a personal thing and I bet a part of her does care but is making that transition into not caring about the guy anymore.
