From the recording Doesn't Play Well With Others
Notes; I'd like to confirm that there are no loops used on this track. The intro/outro is all me on a dozen or so guitars.
I think (from an aged memory) that I'd been listening to Talking Heads 'Remain in Light' and had been trying to develop a funky type of track. The rest of the song was written very quickly.
I started singing the chorus as I ate Coco Pops one Saturday morning and I had to run up stairs and turn on the recorder so I wouldn't forget it.
The verses came to me at the mic. Written for AD.

Everyday, everyday it seems the same
I don't have the words to say
All the things I really want to baby
So I try, I try hard to make it clear
Just how much I need you here
I really hope you'll listen this time, because
You own your life
Everything could be amazing
The sun will rise
The stars will shine
You just have to believe
Now its time, time to open up
Say the words you want to say
Anything you need to say
I'll listen darling
Don't you know that I'm here to hold your hand
That I'll always understand
When those feelings overwhelm you, because
