Ta, verily, Nat......it is truly beautiful, as you say. Is the version on a particular collection?

As far as alternative love songs go, I like 'em angsty. Apropos of that, I "got into" the Foo Fighters year before last - couldn't touch them before, because of the whole grim Cobain thing: my hang-up; my JFK moment. Anyway, from "The Colour and the Shape", for your generosity, I give you:

<b>Everlong</b>


Hello
I've waited here for you
Everlong

Tonight
I throw myself into
And out of the red, out of her head she sang

Come down
And waste away with me
Down with me

Slow how
You wanted it to be
I'm over my head, out of her head she sang
Chorus-

And I wonder
When I sing along with you
If everything could ever feel this real forever
If anything could ever be this good again

The only thing I'll ever ask of you
You've got to promise not to stop when I say when
She sang

Verse 2-

Breathe out
So I could breathe you in
Hold you in

And now
I know you've always been
Out of your head, out of my head I sang

Chorus-

And I wonder
When I sing along with you
If everything could ever feel this real forever
If anything could ever be this good again

The only thing I'll ever ask of you
You've got to promise not to stop when I say when
She sang

Chorus-

And I wonder
If everything could ever feel this real forever
If anything could ever be this good again

The only thing I'll ever ask of you
You've got to promise not to stop when I say when
She sang


..to me it's beauty: layered, constant and energetic in a tight envelope - it reminds me of "Rearviewmirror" but without the slow build. Oh, flip: I've got to go and find that now......and cook the tea!


Peace
