Lyrics & Music: Tony Butler
‘I Can’t Let Go’. I think if I’ve ever made a real or written a Big Country song, it’s definitely this one. I wrote it with the band in mind. It’s the kind of song I would have written if the band was still going. I wanted it to have the ebb and flow and landscape of the band How it would play stuff. And it’s a song about, you know, enjoying what you’ve done so much and not wanting to let go of it and I’ve...Yes, it’s still in me, although I’m kind of quite settled in a funny sort of strange way now. But, deep down inside, you never want to give up something that was so good but we have to give because one of our number is no longer with us and that is kind of frustrating. So, yes, I don’t want to let go, but I’m having to and I’m trying to have to deal with it. And ‘I Can’t Let Go’ is definitely about that kind of frustration about not having the opportunity to continue. - Tony Butler (audio commentary at
