Cowboy Junkies - See You Around

PrintCamiel Bouchier , 0

As known, I am big fan of the Canadiaon Cowboy Junkies. That way discovered a few beautiful covers. Here “See You Around” from Vic Chesnutt, who I did not know before.

Lyrics
I'm sorry for my lack of communication
But as I'm staring out this fifth floor window
It seems like the least amount of communication the better
Oh, well what am I supposed to say
"there's a bloody effigy on my wall
And the complimentary carnation is falling apart"
And I ain't got time for the niceties
Or rather I was never, never fond of the niceties
I will see you around
I will see you around
See you around
See you around
Well I must admit I'm flattered by your consecration
It's a mind-numbing spine-chilling
But never-the-less heartwarming gesture
But as you make your advances so clumsily
I'll save us both the both the hassle and leave
And hang out all night
In the familiar fluorescent light of Dunkin' Donuts
'cause I ain't got time for the niceties
Or rather I was never, never fond of the niceties
I will see you around
See you around
See you around
See you around
Well, how are you with issues
Lately you've been a half-assed activist
You've been seen sashaying around the picket line
Wearing scarcely any sign
Oh, but always vocal in love and strife
And the politics of your all important life
Well, I'm sorry but your routine is coming off a bit ragged
And I ain't got time for the niceties
Or rather I was never, never fond of the niceties
I will see you around
I'll see you around
See you around ...
I'll see you around ...
