Matt Nathanson – “Way Way Back” – Single Review

Just a few short weeks ago, Matt Nathanson brought us a Def Leppard Tribute E.P. titled ‘Pryomattia’ which was a really nice surprise and damn near perfect.  Well, now Matt brings us an actual new song called “Way Way Back” which is supposed to be from a yet unannounced new album coming “soonish” as Matt puts it.

If there is one thing Matt Nathanson can do and that is write a great song.  The man has a way with lyrics and he delivers another sensational song.  The story is of a love lost but letting that person know that they won’t find someone that loves them as much as you did.  That when they realize what they lost they can find you in their memories.

I love lyrics like “Didn’t know that forever only meant forever till you found someone better” which is what I think most people really believe.  And “Radio just wanna hurt me, put you in every song” as who hasn’t gone through a break-up and every song on the radio reminded you of that person.  The song is so relatable and Matt has a way of making everything simple and crystal clear.

It is a love song that only Matt can write.  It is a fun, catchy little tune that will get you singing and “do-do-doing” right along.  If this is any indication of what is to come on the new album, I guess Matt will get more of my money as this will go on pre-order immediately when available…in vinyl of course!!

I would give this one 4.5 out of 5 stars if I had to rate which I guess I do since this is a review.  Give it a listen or go buy now and help support the artist.  It is the least you can do so we keep getting great new music from them.

 

 

“Way Way Back”

Last flare from the lifeboat
Last air in my lungs
Right now even I know that you’ve got someone
Some people see the diamond
Some can only see the flaws
We make perfect little movies than no one ever sawDidn’t know that forever only meant forever till you found someone better
Some day’s gonna hit you, see you crystal clear like a photograph

No one else’s gonna love you like that
No one else’s gonna love you like that
I’ll stay in your mind, you can always find me in the way way back
No one else’s gonna love you like that
Gonna love you like that
Gonna love you like that

I’m sure he’s easier than I was
If you like that sort of thing
He looks better with the shirt off, yeah, but can he sing?
When sun setting early and my shadow’s getting long
Radio just wanna hurt me, put you in every song

No one else’s gonna love you like that
No one else’s gonna love you like that
I’ll stay in your mind, you can always find me in the way way back
No one else’s gonna love you like that
Gonna love you like that
Gonna love you like that

Didn’t know that forever only meant forever till you found someone better
Some day’s gonna hit you see you crystal clear like a photograph

No, no one else’s gonna love you like that
No, no one else’s gonna love you like that
I ‘ll stay in your mind, you can always find me in the way way back
No one else’s gonna love you like that
Gonna love you like that
Gonna love you like that
