2/9/1996 alternate lyrics
So at this point, about the only consistant thing
aside from Tim's fantastic playing every night that
we've been on tour is that we've played this song. So I gotta tell this little story before I start
the song. Uh it's not really a finished song, so
I don't know exactly what it's going to be about,
but, I do know, I know this story, I don't know what
the words are, so bear with me
But there was this, uh, I was walking in New York, I was looking for something, I can't remember what it was. We were finishing off this album that we've made. And uh, there was this... so anyway I didn't know how to get to where I was going wherever it was, it was a museum, or a shore, or a deli or something.
Anyway, there was this girl that I met that I asked, I didn't get... I asked her for directions, and uh, she was about the smallest woman I'd ever seen, she was just so fine. She wasn't fine like one of those cover girls, or like one of them Vogue women or one of them. Not that I mind those Vogue women ...but she was just fine 'cause she was fine, she was tiny, tiny lips, and tiny hips and big eyes. And I turned around and I walked away after I asked her to tell me how to get to wherever it was that I was going.
And um, then I realized something, "what am I doing? Didn't even ask her for her name, didn't even ask her if she wanted to come and get a drink or some coffee." Then she was gone when I turned around, I thought...
?What is her, God?, your face is my mind
both day and night
can't get your voice to stop
echoing through my head
around you this way
take a journey round this
beg I would you return to me
babe you smiling eyes, so wild
and rain me all over again
maybe suddenly, I'm go back, I'm go back
the time you spent much more carefully
oh girl, you make me lose all..
(drunken frat boys screaming over lyrics)
I beg you I will standing here to meet you
dreaming you may __ return
what don't I feel you
(rough from here out - consider it a wor in progress)
Rain on me
will I ever, will I ever see you?
oh I swear, oh God, ___
God hear me, God I want to sleep again
oh so face
the face that I can't find, the voice that echoes in my mind, say
I think I'm lost my head
by the bus stop by the corner
you cause ___
