My Only Question was written around the lead synth part in the chorus that Matt Coker wrote, and a few scratch lyrics that he had done one night at work.
I constructed the majority of the song around the
basslines that Leslie Hyman and I had written, to back up Matt's chorus lead. The rest of the song just kind of came naturally and I was inspired to finish the lyrics from the premise of what Matt had written.
My Only Question remains one of our most popular songs ever, it still receives club and radio play; and has been played all over the world.
One of my mentors, DJ Mike Snow once told me that if we had released this song in the early 90's we'd have been very famous.
In a lot of ways, and with much thanks to all of our fans around the world, I think we already are.
This is my Dad's Favorite Provision song.

My Only Question
Is this another test I’ve failed?
I only want to make things right.
It’s you I’ve come to rely on.
I’m more than just another shoulder to cry on.
Yet I can feel us moving apart.
The separation of another lonely night.
Intertwined with memories of passion.
Now what's the worst that can happen?
What can I find inside me?
How do I get within myself?
To share these feelings that you cannot find with anybody else.
How do you feel when I’m not there.
What do I do to drag you down?
My only question, do you care if I am here or not around?
You’re so aware of the apparent love at hand.
Yet your soul won’t seem to follow.
We’re slipping through the hands of fate.
Make up your mind before it’s too late.
I’m on a quest in a search for answers.
Perhaps the ones that now escape us.
When will you look into my eyes.
Or must I leave to make you realize?
