Last Night, Remembered

about

Another one of the HAH outtakes, this began as one of the first songs this version of Limesix ever worked on. It's also one of the last songs from an era in which I usually wasn't consciously writing about anything in particular. It started life feeling a whole lot like Yo La Tengo, but the finished version steered a bit away from that.

lyrics

On the other side of you is where I walk into a room,
even when you're not there.

And our theme can be erased and disappear without a trace,
every day is so unfair.

Can't you see I'm waiting?
Can't you hear me there?
Can't you see I'm waiting?

"However long I ever stay I never really go away,"
those were the words you said to me.

And if I took it kind of hard, that's how you know you hit the mark,
but I don't know any other way to see.

Don't you know I'm waiting?
Do you even care?
Don't you know I'm waiting?
I can see so clear...

One more time you came to me with a gift I couldn't see,
it was ok just to alive.

Blowing softly on my skin, the only way we can begin,
and you knowing not to cry.

Can't you see I'm waiting?
Don't you know I'm there?
Can't you see I'm waiting?
Always blowing signals through the air.

about

limesix Orlando

Limesix is a rock band, in the 90s tradition. They maybe sound a bit like Portastatic, Yo La Tengo, and Say Hi, hopefully with some sly nods to Prince.
