I wake up some mornings
thank God not as often as I used to
slow and heavy from dreams with you

you've found a way back in
once again my long lost friend
funny to see that after all these years
I miss you the same

So I drag myself to the corner café
and for a second I see you there
like in the good old days
and I wonder what you're doing ?
what are you up to these days ?

I sometimes wish you would call me
but then I wouldn't know what to say

and I see you
in every cab that goes by
in the strangers at every cross road,
in every bar

it takes a glass or two
for it to settle down
for your shadows to stop following me
around

I find myself walking back
to all the places we knew
dreaming and wishing
to somehow run into you

And of course I wonder
does it happen to you ?
Does my ghost ever come looking for you ?

and I see you....

I like the music and chord selection along with the slight melody. The lyrics are sort of empty...in a banal kind of way. Not sure why I don't like them. I don't mind the story...I just think it would have been told better with more thoughtful lyrics. I think it's the lack of emotion in her delivery.
I thought this was Jack White at first but his voice isn't near as whiney.

I can relate cause I'm there

That's hardly fair. Dylan can do it better? You gotta be kidding! 
She's the daughter of our great French actress Jane Birkin  {#Roflol}, and it is her first CD.  Not bad don't U think ?

Lethargic, yet strangely addictive.


Lovely, but like the cover art, a bit...morose? Downbeat? ICU? Play on words, or should she be in the intensive care unit? 
Not musically impressive enough to justify listening to those uber-depressing lyrics.  Downer.


ICU2 Lou!
