I live only here,between your eyes and you
But I live in this world. What do I do?
Collect no interest - otherwise what I can.
Above all I'm not that staring man.
I move like a spirit, between this world and that
The weight of them both square on my back.
Collect no interest - and I shed what I can.
Above all I'm not that staring man.
You sit in your tower, straight and tall,
Your kingdom around you beginning to fall.
You close your eyes and you hold your tounge.
And every night you check
On the damage you've done.
I live only here between your eyes and you.
Caught in your world, what do I do?
Fear in the air - I made my stand.
Prove once again I'm not that staring man.
You hold your ground, and you take what comes.
And ever night you check on your desire to run.
You hold your ground and you take what comes.
And every night you check on your desire to run.
I live only here between your eyes and you.
But I live in this world. What do I do?

Hmmm...is that necessarily a bad thing?  I guess it depends on who you ask.

Ah, get to break out the Sucko-Barfo rating again. I reserve 1's for this band and Tracy Chapman.
Hey Romeotuma - what do you think about this? :-) I like the Junkie's and her voice, in small-to-medium doses. They can get depressing, but are also very lovely and haunting and yes, melancholy at times. Nothing wrong wit' dat.

The Junkies are an acquired taste, like Scotch.  Those of us who love them, and this fine example of their art, can only feel sad for those of you still drinking Bud.    
 
There's nothing like a childish bit of pompous condescension to rationalize one's musical tastes.  Do the raindrops go into your nostrils during a storm?

Too snoozy...off to fire up some J. Geils on the iPod...
Although somewhat decent song, CB definitely did better slow songs in the past.

Still would like to hear some energy behind very good lyrics and instrumentation.

This song is good for the heart...

 


This song is good for the ears...

 
Sounds like junk to me.
 
Nice new Cowboy Junkies!  Sounds good.
