Hey!

I heard you say you don't feel right
Somethin' must've changed inside
She said, "I still love the bands, and the boy down the street
But everybody else gives me the creeps."

And there's a hole in you now
Like the windshield was taken out
And everybody's hurt, and mine ain't the worst,
But it's mine and I'm feelin' it now

Sometimes I think it's haunted inside this house...

And I hear ya cryin' over the phone,
"Where have all the good times gone?"
Down in the glass of shouting matches
Lost in the songs they don't write anymore

(Hey hey hey!) It's all right, I ain't tryin' to bring you down tonight
(Hey hey hey!) "Oh my my my," she says, "I don't mind, I'm just so tired of the empty sheets I sleep beside."

Heard you say it's gone all wrong, since when did the days and the nights get so long?
She said, "I still miss the scene and the dying breed, but now I'd settle for some company.
And there were things that I did, just so I could feel anything.
But somewhere along, something went off, and I woke up with blood on my lips,
And yeah, and there were nights I just did whatever I liked..."

And now I hear ya cryin' over the phone,
"Where have all the good times gone?"
Down in the glass of shouting matches
Lost in the songs they don't write anymore

But hey hey hey, it's all right, I ain't tryin' to bring you down tonight
"Oh my my my," she said, "I don't mind, I'm just so tired of the empty sheets I sleep beside."

And now I hear ya cryin' over the phone,
"Where have all the good times gone?"
Down in the glass of shouting matches
Lost in the songs you don't write anymore.

But hey! - hey! - hey!
It's all right, I ain't tryin' to bring you down tonight
And "oh my my my," she said, "I don't mind,
'Cause maybe someday they're gonna love me back to life."

(See my baby, sweet Rosemary)
My name is Rosemary
(See my baby, sweet Rosemary)
You'd be lucky to meet me
(See my baby, sweet Rosemary)
My name is Rosemary
(See my baby, sweet Rosemary)
Yeah, you'd be lucky if you get to hold me

My name is Rosemary, and you'd be lucky to meet me.

such a great song... the only change i might make is

"downin' a glass of shouting matches" i.e. a reference to alcohol and how it causes some people to get emotional

although i'm not sure about that, i guess we'll have to wait for the lyrics from the physical release (unless that's where you already got this from)

All day I've now been singing just that one line, "my name's Rosemary". Just as well I've been home alone. Love that song.

Best song Brian has written in a very long time. I get chills at the end every time --- the girl he's writing about spends the whole song sad, scared and alone and then with the simple line "My name is Rosemary, you'd be lucky to meet me" it ends on an optimistic note with the girl acknowledging that she is a good person with a lot to offer. Really brilliant songwriting, a more subtle and mature "Here Comes My Man" IMO.

Probably my favourite from the record and some of the best lyrics he's written imo. This line just blows me away:

Quote :
And everybody's hurt, and mine ain't the worst,
But it's mine and I'm feelin' it now
