My balance was gone, but so is the pain
Was waitin' around, but you never came
So I ran into Tony
He grabbed on my body
I told him I missed you
He told me he loved me
And hey, I liked the way he said my name
That's all he had to say

The damage is done, but so is the wait
And I tried not to run cause it would be a mistake
But it would be a mistake if I just took my time
Cause I'd be waiting around just to pay for your crimes
And hey, I know what it takes to be wrong but it feels all right to me

Even though I know you let me down
I don't know why I can't come around
And even though I know my mind is sound
Couldn't walk away from what I've found

Your honesty's good but too much is bad
And I've been trying to hold on to something I've never had
Cause I've never had you just as I have you now
That you're afraid of losin' but you're not scared enough
Hey wait, you wipe that smile right off of your face
Cause I don't know where it came from

Even if I know I won't be found
I will still be hiding underground
Even if I go outside I find
You've already left me far behind

Even when this song comes crashing down
I don't wanna hear another sound
No I don't wanna hear another sound

Always liked her music and always will! A beauty, too, she is.
I love Norah Jones (musically speaking of course), and this song. But when I went on iTunes to download it, it doesn't appear on this album (or anywhere).  Is there a different album for Americans than there is for us Canucks?

What's your point?
Wasn't aware of this side of Norah. I like it!
Norah Jones is a huge talent.

Adele and Amy Winehouse are being ignored?  Really?

Do please share your talent rating algorithm—objective, of course. I'm sure Bill & Rebecca would be quite interested as would the rest of us.

I do sooo agree! {#Clap}
Much better than her typical snooze-inducing stuff.
...love, LOVE Norah! Distinctive, eloquent and classy!
sounds like something from the black keys.
A terrific musician. A very boring and tedious song.
She's very talented. But I'm not fond of the music. Next...! 
3rd track I've heard off this album this week. Never realize who I'm listening to until I see that sexy cover.

B) Lighten up for God's sake. You like Nora's early work and are not thrilled with the new disk. We get it. You don't need to rewrite "War & Peace". Crack a brewski and listen to something else.

 
Err....On_the_Beach & Calypso.........what!?  Heh!
This song had me doin' the 'ol double-take.  It's not something I'm used to, nor expect, from Lady Norah.

I like it!

she is never trying to be sexy, she is a serious musician and human being who happens to be female.

 
 
She's a fine musician and singer who definitely deserves respect, but take a look at the CD cover.  I think it's safe to say that she's trying to look sexy.  It's working for me.

Perhaps you have, but I detect no lisping in this song.  Maybe you've been listening to too much Barbara Walters.
Okay, I hope Norah's got the obligatory pop tart schtick out of her system now and will get back to what she's really great at. This stuff is boilerplate and the manufactured dangaling celebrities who sing it are a dime a dozen. The world doesn't need another Miley Cyrus, there's already like, I dunno 50 and more being stamped out every year. This act doesn't fit Norah Jones - thank god - and it's boring as hell. Sounds like something a PR agent reptile talked her into.

Snorah has awakened!
Everyone in my pants loves this whole album.  {#Cheers}
She's so young to have that voice and the obvious ability to use it well.
Sure is windy in here
Moved her up to a 6. second listening

Do not wait from me, either now or in the future, the "politically correct", the "convenient", the "innocent sympathy", the "infatuation", about any artist who plays here. And if there are exceptions, it is because of my sentimental side.
I have for me, each musical work that is being proposed by an artist, is unique, and it is like the first.
And when analyzing consciously this work, we must put aside the credits, merits, successes already achieved, awards, the commercial weight of the name in the market, the celebrity. Staying distant and exempt from these restrictions, the most often subvert and distort, benefit or harm, the analysis of concrete work.
The main "sin" of the latter album, is a mistake to think that the artist can resolve the situation, with a few studio sessions with ingenious and easy, and even vulgar, musical solutions, and presenting them as if they were the result of musical development, the culmination of many years of work, a decade, justifying it as a requirement to provide change of musical and artistic direction.
We all know that after reaching a certain level of commercial success, the artists brake intense fighting, either by competition, new talent emerging, for maintaining the "status" by the pressure of the objectives of the business, and contract enforcement inherent.
In the field of music can not improvise everything, not everything can "over the knee" because the expectations generated by this artist were high, and listen and meditate on the last proposed album, there is a huge deficit of creativity/inspiration, maturity, uncertainty on course and style, the matrix musical, beyond that the songs were not sufficiently worked the instrumental level, because the basis on which they are conceived, not allow to go further. "When we do not have a dog, we hunted with cat". No, thanks.
Only our "I sentimental" makes us, perhaps, even get a little attached to this artist, as always we feel about our first love.
I also think, after passing the phase of this disc, of precipitate and occasional character, with more reflection, and means of support, adequate musicians, etc, Norah might be able to shine again.
By the way, say, for a young lady of 33 years old, it would be nice to go over to the gym, jogging, and taking care of a proper diet to avoid having to wear "kilts" in their performances live on stage ....

Now (On_The_Beach), about the "out of context", you are. That you are decontextualize what I said, why are you removing a phrase of my entire comment. An ability to "smart-ass". Not pass.

 Then I'll remind you again, my entire comment, and maybe now you understand better ....

I'm sorry to say this, would not be so sincere, go so far, but the truth is that content, of the last record of Norah Jones, negatively affected in me, the level of interest and hearing, not only now, as records discographic previous, as i fear affecting decisively in the future. I hope not.

nice - best track on the album and it's not "on" the album. So, where does that leave the rest of us who paid for the cd? Classy move, Norah. I now feel zero guilt about illegally downloading this song.

I like Nora Jones in all of her musical incarnations.  heard her doing a wide spectrum mix of music in one set that just killed me.  she sang songs ranging from dreamy slow smooth jazz through pop all the way to boot scooting country, without bobbling or dropping the vibe.  it was one hell of a set, and worth every penny for the price of admission....

There's no song on the album by that title, at least what I saw on Amazon.com MP3 downloads.  Perhaps it's a lyric in one of the songs?
Hilarious comment!  I gave up reading the subject post about 1/2 way through...

Do not worry, so you stay also so beautiful......

I have this album, and I want to like it, but I just can't. The singing and musicianship is tops, but It just seems like she's getting a breakup off her chest, and it's not fun to listen to.
Sorry, read a bit further and see that it is an iTunes/Target bonus track - it will be available elsewhere I guess sometime in late October or thereabouts.

''... and I don't wanna hear another sound.'' Final lyrics of the song. Hm, she saw that one coming, didn't she? I like it. Used to think she was a one-trick pony. Now it's clear she knows at least two.

I think this is part of the "real Norah Jones".  It's odd, because many people criticized her prior recordings as being "all-the-same".  I guess you can't please everyone.

Very nice!

"I Don't Wanna Hear Another Sound"..... hmm? Curious....and, why the hell, are you (Norah) so convinced that we will "ride this wave"?  're not


Kind of dig it when Norah tries new direction.  And from what I hear she is also a pretty cool chick on a personal level.  Not pretentious or affected by the fame she had.
