Head East - Never Been Any Reason

Head East - Never Been Any Reason




"Never Been Any Reason" is the first track on Head East's début album Flat as a Pancake, composed by the band's guitarist, Mike Somerville. It is often considered Head East's signature song, peaking at number 68 on the Billboard Hot 100, and continues to be played on classic rock radio stations in the US a generation after it was recorded.


The song features keyboardist Roger Boyd's double-tracked Minimoog solos throughout the song. Asked about the solos via the band's official web site, Boyd said they were created due to an accident during mixing:


"It is two Minimoogs. Back in those days we did not have computerized mixing and had to mix "on the fly;" we forgot to mute one of the moog solos and when it went by we thought WOW! so we decided to go back and record the second part to match/compliment [sic] the primary solo part."




Lyrics



Did you see any action, did you make any friends?

Would you like some affection, before I leave again?

I've been walking behind you, since you've been able to see

There's never been any reason for you to think about me.


Did you have any bad dreams, did you break any glass?

Would you be my companion, is there even a chance?

You've been talking in circles, since I've been able to cry

There's never been any reason for never telling me why yea ha


Save my life I'm going down for the last time

Woman with a sweet lovin' better than a white line

Bring a good feelin' ain't had in such a long time

Save my life I'm going down for the last time


Have you ever been lonely, do you have any fun?

Do you ever think of me, I'm just another one , yea

You never give me no answer, you never tell me the truth

There's never been any reason for me to think about you

There's never been any reason

There's never been any reason, yea haa

There's never been any reason

Save my life I'm going down for the last time.

Woman with a sweet lovin' better than a white line

Don't you know she could bring a good feelin' ain't had in such a long time

Save my life I'm going down for the last time, woah

Save my life I'm going down for the last time

Save my life I'm going down for the last time

Save my life I'm going down for the last time

Save my life I'm going down for the last time

Save my life I'm going down for the last time
