All Is Well
« on: February 21, 2008, 04:28:12 pm »
I went looking for lyrics and couldn't find any that seemed accurate in regards to the version I have. I have a hard time understanding some of her words in the second verse... any help would be appreciated!

I always sleep so much better when it's raining
There's something about the rhythm as the water hits the pane
I could stay in bed all goddamn day
And sweetly waste away
Cause I'm blind to all the good, you see
Prefer a fine tragedy

When all is well, I get nervous
Something missing
If only you could tell me it's okay,
And I'd listen 'cause it already is

The air grows thin as summer fades
Its sadness I taste
No crisp and colored autumn days appeared in my view
Cause it's gloom you caused
The splendor that's been staring me in my face
And the spectrum of colors all bleeds into blue

When all is well, I get nervous
Something missing
If only you could tell me it's okay,
And I'd listen 'cause it already is

And you're such a good man
'Cause you see through the tears
And they come every night
Without reason, meaning, why

When all is well, I get nervous
Something missing
If only you could tell me it's okay,
And I'd listen 'cause it already-

All is well and I know it when I see you
You don't need to tell me it's okay
'Cause I believe that it already is
Already is, already is

I always sleep so much better when it's raining...

Something missing
If only you could tell me it's okay,
And me listen 'cause it already is

The air grows thin as summer fades
Its sadness I taste
No crisp and colored autumn days appeared in my view
'cause this blue, you caught
The splendor that's been staring me in my face
And the spectrum of colors just turn into blue

When all is well, I get nervous
Something missing
If only you could tell me it's okay,
And me listen 'cause it already is

And it’s all true, and good and merry
'Cause you see through the tears
And they come every night
Without reason, meaning, why

When all is well, I get nervous
Something missing
If only you could tell me it's okay,
And me listen 'cause it already-

All is well and I know it when I see you
You don't need to tell me it's okay
'Cause I believe that it already is
Already is, already is

I always sleep so much better when it's raining...



That's what I hear when I listen to it carefully.

We have two totally different versions - I have both, actually. I wonder which one is more recent?

My version, she changed "me listen" to:
"And I'd listen 'cause it already is ..."

And "just turned into blue" is:
"And the spectrum of colors all bleeds into blue "

But it's definitely:
"And you're such a good man
'Cause you see through the tears
And they come every night
Without reason, meaning, why"

in the most recent live ones she has in fact changed it to "and I'd/I (whatever) listen"
