Seeing Things For The First Time... Reprise

Please don't let this happen to me. (EDIT October 2009: It did, and I'm trying to step on without him and...yes even him, the man who wrote this song, doesn't say hi to me any more. C'est la vie.)

SEEING THINGS
THE BLACK CROWES
SHAKE YOUR MONEY MAKER (1990)

Notes: "Musically, this is our Steve Cropper tribute. A soul ballad that could be on an old Stax record. The kind of song you don't hear much these days. a lovesick blues." (Chris)


I find it hard to shed a tear
You brought it all on yourself my dear
Wrong, yes I may be
Don't leave a light on for me
'Cause I ain't comin' home
It hurts me baby to be alone
Yes, it hurts me baby

A hundred years will never ease
Hearing things I won't believe
I saw it with my own two eyes
All the pain that I can't hide

And this pain starts in my heart
And this love tears us apart
You won't find me bent down on my knees
Ain't bendin' over backwards baby
Not to please

'Cause I'm seeing things for the first time
I'm seeing things for the first time, oh yeah
I'm seeing things for the first time
In my life, in my life

I used to dream
Of better days that never came
Sorry ain't nothin' to me
I'm gone and that's the way it must be
So please I've done my time
Lovin' you is such a crime
You won't find me down on, on my knees
Won't find me over backwards baby
Just to please

'Cause I'm seeing things for the first time
I"m seeing things for the first time
Seeing things for the first time
Oh I'm seeing things for the first time
Yeah, seeing things for the first time
I'm seeing things for the first time
Yeah, I'm seeing things for the first time
In my life, in my life
