(8) Watch me gone
« on: January 30, 2024, 11:42:10 AM »
Watch Me Gone   5:02

There was a train leavin' for a big beat in a big life
Are you comin'?
I may have asked you once or twice
But I'd already left the hallway with broken lights
Some dingy landin' we used to tumble from
Where the stairs were cracked and worn, whatever

Watch me go, babe, watch me gone

And the songs were pushin' harder all the time
Wasn't your fault, then again it wasn't mine
Broke, frustrated, and obsessed
You saw me as ridiculous, I guess
And I didn't know from nothing
Not even my own voice

But I knew there was something
And I knew there was no choice
I was leavin', mostly heartache
But I was in no mood to rejoice
There was so much that was wrong, whatever

Watch me go, babe, watch me gone
Watch me go, babe, watch me gone
Watch me go, babe, watch me gone
Watch me go, babe, watch me gone

Well, maybe I'll hit the road with Bob
Or maybe hitch a ride with Van
It's all gonna happen
And I'll be a happening man
And God must still be laughing at a boy and his plans
In the streets where they were born

And the hopscotch traces, well, you can still see 'em here
The chalk lines faded and unclear
Time for me to disappear
Put my old boots back on, whatever

Watch me go, babe, watch me gone
Watch me go, babe, watch me gone
Watch me go, babe, watch me gone
Watch me go, babe, watch me gone
Watch me go, babe, watch me gone
Watch me go, babe, watch me gone
Watch me go, babe, watch me gone
Watch me go, babe, watch me gone

Watchs me gone it's just the dreams of a teenage kid to me it's always been the fuel that if that's the nuclear center of the whole thing the whole thing that keeps you going and um and it once the fuel from that runs out The Thrill Is Gone then you you know you're struggling all the way then um that's why I'm still you know cross the street to look at a window of guitars and you know it's just that bit of your teen years that it reminds you of and you and so you try to keep it alive I remember a few Disturbed years just trying to get going and trying to trying to do this thing it seemed so possible you know and I'd be go to the city hall and I'd see Van Morrison and the you know Orchestra e you know thing and I'd think I wish I was so wish I was doing that I'd be that's where I you know I'd be or Bob Dylan and the band at the odeon in Newcastle you know and I'd say well you know I'm going that's really that's so you reserve a place in that lineup for yourself I mean even back to the very early days with the Straits I mean you enjoyed that too didn't you that you know the original you know yeah tiny venues and and just a you know sure you've got to want it you've got to want it bad badly and uh you that'll be tested from the from the get-go you've got to want to be there and you're just walking into something that you've no idea really about especially when you start so what makes you what gives you the uh the arrogance to think that you can to to to indicate to people that you know what you're doing which is just total lie you hav't you don't know what you're doing uh but something makes you do it

Someone shared this on FB, it’s a snippet of the song, if you listen the end, you can hear the extract in the album presentation video - part 1 so we know it’s Watch me gone

If I realised that the chances were slim,
How come I'm so surprised when the tide rolled in

I’m just hoping that the songs we have yet to hear have a bit more energy than the two we now know a bit about.

We also know a bit of One Deep River from the video which also sounds laidback

It's going to be a beautiful guitar solo.
