Song, by counting crows, written by Adam Duritz. From the Hard Candy CD.
In many ways, this feels like the sequel to Round here
Round here, She's always on my mind.
(Hey man), I got lots of time.
Round here, we're never sent to bed early.
Man, nobody makes us wait.
Round here, we stay up very very very very late.
Like round here, it is about coming to grips with the freedom to make decisions and having to accept the consequences of those choices. Duritz's singing has reminded some of us of Van Morrison previously, but rarely as strongly as in the performance. (Listen to him sing the passage that includes "into the greater grey" and think Into the mystic).
Is everybody happy now?
Is everybody clear?
We could drive out to the dunes tonight,
'cause summer's almost here.
And I've been up all night,
I might sleep all day.
Get your dreams just right
Let them slip away, I might sleep all day.
