Lately I’ve Let Things Slide – Nick Lowe

March 11, 2009

With a growing sense of dread
And a hammer in my head
Fully clothed upon the bed
I wake up to the world
That lately I’ve been living in

There’s a cut upon my brow
Must have banged myself somehow
But I can’t remember now
And the front door’s open wide
Lately I’ve let things slide

I go to the bin
I throw the laundry in
And pick out the cleanest shirt
Then I tell myself again
I don’t really hurt

Smoking I once quit
Now I got one lit
I just fell back into it
Along with my pride
Lately I’ve let things slide

I go to the bin
I throw the laundry in
Dig out the cleanest shirt
When all at once I’m seized again
By exquisite hurt

That untouched take-away
I brought home the other day
Has quite a lot to say, the evidence is clear
On every side piled high and wide
About how lately I’ve let things slide

I’m just about holding on
But lately I’ve let things slide

Great, Great Song!! All-Time Top 5!

I Trained Her To Love Me – Nick Lowe

September 7, 2008

Do you see the way she lights up when I walk in the room? That’s good.
And the skip in her step when we’re both out walkin’ in the neighborhood.
This one’s almost done, now to watch her fall apart.
I trained her to love me, so I can go ahead and break her heart.

If you think that it’s depraved and I should be ashamed, so what.
I’m only paying back womankind for all the grief I got.
I’ve got the latest believing forever I’ll be true.
I trained her to love, now excuse me, I’ve got work to do.

I trained her to love me, and I’m gonna start working on another after this.
And when I get that one in a state of bliss, betray her with a kiss.

Well, one time one cut-up rough told me I only do this cause I can, hmm.
And I’m bound to wind up one lonely, twisted, old man.
But look out, here comes a prime contender for my agenda, if ever there was one.
And I’m gonna train her to love me until it’s time to do what must be done.

Trained her to love me,
And I’m gonna start working on another after this.
And when I get that one in a state of bliss, betray with her a kiss.
And I’m gonna start working on another after this.
And when I get that one in a state of bliss, betray with her a kiss.
I trained her to love me.
Too late to stop now.
