...Said Sadly

"A fun song to write and record. It's sort of my version of a country duet song. I recorded this the day after we finished the music for the album, and had a friend of mine, Nina Gordan (of Veruca Salt), sing with me because she's got a great tone and character in her voice. The guitar fills and slide guitar are in the style of Derek & the Dominoes, Clarence White, the Byrds and the Allman Brothers. We did one track of guitar fills with a Les Paul through an MXR phaser with a clean sound, as well as another track of Les Paul slide guitar which gives the song kind of a romantic sound, most of which was done in one or two takes." -JI (Guitar World 1/97)



(JI=James Iha, NG=Nina Gordon (of Veruca Salt), J+N=both)
JI: You should know that I love you
We should love like lovers do
And I can't help but fall for you
Ah honey I'm just a fool
Now you know

NG: Darling, I'll never be true
You see, for so long I was blue
JI: (I'm not the only one)
NG: And if I hurt, then you will, too
Ah honey I always lose
Now you know

J+N: Lover, when will you?
JI: I'm so afraid that no one cares
J+N: Lover, can't find you
JI: I swear to God don't leave me here
J+N: Now you know

J+N: Oh, you know that it can't be
But no one else here really means
JI: (Anything to me)
J+N: If you hurt inside
If you confide in me again

NG: Since you ran away
JI: Hold me now, tell me how
Love is ours

J+N: Lover, when will you?
I'm so afraid that noone cares
Lover, can't find you
And no one knows what brings us here
JI: Hold me now
NG: Hold me now
JI: Tell me how
J+N: Love is ours
