Story

This is a rearrangement of an earlier song ("Nothing Seems Like What It Seems", on my first CD of the same name). Here I have added a key shift and a chorus, along with tightening up the lyrics.

Lyrics

NOTHIN' SEEMS QUITE RIGHT

Asleep, awakened, high above, the many few below.
Alone, together, are the stars, too blind now to behold.

All naked we are covered, by hopes we dare not hold.
Remember we've forgotten us, too deaf now to be told.

Nothin' seems quite right, tonight, 'Til you're home with me.
Nothin' seems quite right, tonight, 'Til you're home with me.

The inside out of everyone is silence in a sound.
Forgotten we've remembered us, too drunk now to be drowned.

Shadows placed above our heads, cast light upon the ground.
Below the dark has won its fight, too lost now to be found.

Nothin' seems quite right, tonight, 'Til you're home with me.
Nothin' seems quite right, tonight, 'Til you're home with me.

Up is down. Straight is round. Awake's a narrow beam.
Nothing seems like what it seems, until you're home with me.

Young look old and fire feels cold. Nights are rather mean.
Nothing seems like what it seems, until you're home with me.

Nothin' seems quite right, tonight, 'Til you're home with me.
Nothin' seems quite right, tonight, 'Til you're home with me.

A is Z. There's a missing key and water never cleans.
Nothing seems like what it seems, until you're home with me.

I feel your lovin' in my dreams, awake I cannot be.
Nothing seems like what it seems, until you're home with me.

Nothin' seems quite right, tonight, 'Til you're home with me.
Nothin' seems quite right, tonight, 'Til you're home with me.
