Get Good
« on: February 15, 2011, 03:01:51 am »
I thought I'd get this started while I try to get the video uploaded.  There are spots I'm not sure what she says and we all know my hearing is not the best, but I tried!!  Here are the lyrics as I hear them.  what I wasn't sure about are in parenthesis or a questiong mark and ___ for what I have NO clue about!

Inspired by her cousin's speech which referenced Sylvia Plath's poem that included a rain drop on a leaf (beauty in nature), and for her friend contemplating divorce

are the echos coming back to you
is wisdom seeing patterns on the walls (?)
___around you
you believe in colors
when i saw you
 catching velvet on the moonlight
have you lost your constellations
_____  time
i wish i could be there
wish i could make it right
don't you worry you'll soon ____ (on the moon or move?)
that's no trick that flicker ____
you'll feel like lucky darling
I'm sure of it
figure it out and get good again
na na na na na

slow mo ride the hills are green
golden dust and dandelion ___ (seem)?
about sourcery (?)
always been so long
since fall is so serene
it's been so long
don't you worry you'll soon be ____ (alright again)?

that"s no trick that flicker ____ (beneath the wind)?
you'll feel like lucky darling
i promise you this
 you'll figure it out and get good again
na na na na na

you said   ____  you don't feel free
no it's not true but i know what you mean
wanted to thank you for being so good to me
i just wanted you to know

are the echos coming back to you
is wisdom seeing patterns on the wall  ___(flicker) around you
we'll look out for each other
I'll look out for you
we'll look out for each other

 don't you worry you'll soon be ____ (on the moon)?
that's no trick that flicker ____
you'll feel lucky darling I'm sure of it
figure it out  yeah we'll get good again

I'll figure it out (and then we'll get) good again ?
I'll figure it out and get good again

a dream
dandelion fields in a dream
dandelion fields in a dream


sorry if it's a tease, but I wanted to give you something while you wait!!

So excited to hear this! I love love love the lyrics. This is going to be my Carousel, I think. The song from the album that I just absolutely fall in love with.

Sounds amazing! I'm a little disappointed 3 of the songs off the new album seem to be of verrry similar writing structure though
FWF, Carousel, and Get good

I know I'm sorry! But I thought I'd give you guys something I have a pretty busy couple of days ahead of me (I'm at work now) but I am going to try try try to get at least this song up and running.
I didn't realize they were all similar, probably because I don't really write poems or songs.  I think each one has a very different style to is musically though.  For instance, she doesn't play the piano in this one. They are still amazing even if they are similar structurally!

I think the similarity is what makes her new songs thematic. And as a writer, I guess she has this one inspiration. One source. But in my opinion, they all sound unique. (Though I admit that I speculate that maybe the reason why she changed the key of Fair-Weather Friends to A Major is that it sounded very similar with Carousel in key of C Major.)

I think she did that to reach more easily the high notes in the chorus.

Yes, maybe that's it.

And I just want to hear this right now. But maybe I can still wait a little more.

Uploading to my facebook now, maybe KULP can get it from there.  It seemed the easiest way through my Flip Share.  I could have done it to you tube as well, but I feel like I want to covet this song for us nessaholics...is that selfish?
