Ain't it funny how we pretend we're still a child
Softly stolen under our blanket skies
And rescue me from me, and all that I believe
I won't deny the pain
I won't deny the change
And should I fall from grace here with you
Will you leave me too?

Carve out your heart for keeps in an old oak tree
And hold me for goodbyes-and whispered lullabyes
And tell me I am still
The man I'm supposed to be
I won't deny the pain
I won't deny the change
And should I fall from grace here with you
Will you leave me too?

Too late to turn to turn back now, I'm running out of sound
And I'm changing, changing
And if we died right now, this fool you loved somehow
Is here with you
I won't deny the pain
I won't deny the change
And should I fall from grace here with you
Would you leave me too?

(shrug) I guess you'd not come across a lot of albums, then. I quite like it, certainly like it more than this track which does, as another poster writes, sound like the singer is trying to squeeze a big log out.
 


i understand the hate, i do

but their music will always touch me - i guess having been a teenager in the early to mid 90's means that certain music is just always going to stay with me....

I was thinking this could be a beautiful song in the hands of a better vocalist.

It is a play on words.  Look up the definition of melancholy sometime {#Angel}

But perhaps, as you posted in the past tense, you have since changed your opinion?

Whether you love them or hate them, it is hard to deny to talent of B. Corgan from the standpoint of composition, layering, production, etc.

His voice is an acquired taste, like Neil Young, or Bob Dylan, or Tom Waits, or Bjork, or Thom York...but my opinion is that B. Corgan approaches his vocals more from the perspective of another instrument in his arsenal of sound; like a swarm of bees at times, a child at others. 

I have always been a big fan, and think that SP are a special talent that were instrumental in defining a specific period in rock music history.

The 90's... it was the best of times it was the worst of times...

A classic of their last good album. I am surprised it hasn't been played here on RP before.

Worth every 8 stars!
I always thought the singer sounded like he was constipated.

Great classic Pumkins.    BTW, Iha now touring with a band called Tinted Windows.


Nice opening...
