In The Darkest Place

This is a favorite from Painted From Memory. Something that has always bothered me about the structure of the song though is how the "I only have to tell myself that by now you could be with someone else" piece is not repeated in the second chorus.

Re: Herb Alpert's next album includes new Bacharach-Costello composition
