Eels: That Look You Give That Guy

Eels: That Look You Give That Guy

Eels klinkt leuk, en dit nummer uit hun album Hombre Lobo ook. Maar als je goed luistert naar de tekst, dan is het ineens toch wat minder vrolijk. Echte herfstmuziek dus.

Songtekst

I never thought that I could be so bold
To even say these thoughts aloud
I see you with your man; your eyes just shine
While he stands tall and walkin’ proud

That look you give that guy
I wanna see
Lookin’ right at me
If I could be that guy instead of me
I’d never let you down

It always seems like you’re goin’ somewhere
Better than you been before
Well, I go to sleep, and I dream all night
Of you knockin’ on my door

That look you give that guy
I wanna see
Lookin’ right at me
If I could be that guy instead of me
I’d be all I can be (x 2)

I’m nothin’ like what I’d like to be
I’m nothin’ much, I know it’s true
I lack the style and the pedigree
And my chances are so few

That look you give that guy
I wanna see
Lookin’ right at me
If I could be that guy instead of me
I’d give you all I got

I never thought that I could be so bold
To even say these thoughts aloud
But if, let’s say, it won’t work out
You know where I can be found

That look you give that guy
I wanna see
Lookin’ right at me
If I could be that guy instead of me
I’d never let you down (x 2)
