about

Tales of Young Robert live at The Wild Blue on May 29, 1989. Ripped from a rare casette dub of the show. This is one of the very first songs I wrote for the band.

lyrics

ALMOST ALWAYS - words & music by Nate Butler
I came to here to sulk and leer, and be my charming self
You ask me why I'm over here, when you know I came with someone else
Ha ha, ha ha, enjoy that beer; better have another
Don't look that way, you'll see our dates are probably leaving with each other
You can come with me anywhere
But let's both be considerate, and not go back in there

Heart of ice, like velcro dice; she was rusting on a shelf
I said I'd like to oil her, but the cure was something else
I guess this is what you get when you plan ahead something else's time
I thought we were made in heaven before we arrived at this place -- and I wasn't even driving

You can come with me anywhere
But I don't know a better show to ache my soul, so let's just go
Everywhere -- but in there

I came to here to sulk and leer, and be my charming self
You ask me why I'm over here, when you know I came with someone else
Ha ha, ha ha, enjoy that beer; better have another
Don't look that way, you'll see our dates have forsaken both us for each other
You can come with me anywhere
But I don't know a better show to ache my soul, so let's just go
Everywhere, everywhere
Everywhere -- but in there
