"there's no poetry between us"
said the paper to the pen
something's burning in the attic
that her tongue will not defend
through the arc of conversation
past the teeth behind the smile
down the miracle mile
to the bottom of the ladder
paint your eyes and hide the tatters
what's the matter baby?
could we go downtown
to the middle of the world?
you were always such a pretty girl
and you told me I was beautiful
"there's no poetry between us"
said the paper to the pen
"and I get nothing for my trouble
but the ink beneath my skin"
if your clothes are getting weary
and your soul's gone out of style
blame the miracle mile
and the bottom of the ladder
paint your eyes and hide the tatters
what's the matter baby?
. . . I'm coming too.

Worst cover photo I've seen in a while. (Let's get a closeup of your finger hair and that amazing tattoo!)

Please don't use profanity here. My mom and son tune in. Thanks.

Quick question,
I have been listening using the Octoshape plugin and Winamp, and have not really noticed anything out of the ordinary, but this song sounds really good with it.....the peddle guitar or whatever it is sounds completely seperated from the rest....off to the left front. I am listening on a laptop, with no external speakers. Anyone else think this song sounds better quality wise than some?
 
Sorry,No!  I am listening to the small globe speakers from Mac today (good sounding for being so small) but I might be wrong ,my  ears are unfortunately as old as the rest of me.
Paul Simon-y as things Gary Jules go.
What's a wolfticket, anyway?
I like this song very much, thank you.

if it's not some young female singing with her fingers up her nose, it's some guy sounding like he's recovering from a heavy night before - there's just no substance to some of this stuff.
I can dig that. But everyone looks for 'substance' in a different place. Substance for me is usually in the lyrics.
I just find there's far too much of this pitty patty nicey nicey kinda lame tat - if it's not some young female singing with her fingers up her nose, it's some guy sounding like he's recovering from a heavy night before - there's just no substance to some of this stuff. It don't rock my boat. :grumpy:
Wow this song is getting ripped to shreds. I think it's lovely. Nothing dramatic, but interesting lyrics, simple groove, and unique changes out of the chorus.

Gary Jules' sound is refreshing to me; he's comparable in some ways to a 21st century James Taylor...Call me crazy.
Hmmm... :think: I thought James Taylor was the James Taylor of the 21st century.
