Story

Ike Stubblefield is another dear friend I met during the Granny’s Bathwater years.  Ike would travel through Nashville from time to time and whenever he did we’d always set aside time to write one or two songs together, including this one.  Recorded at Recording Arts in Nashville with Ike on keyboards, Mike Brignardello on bass, Chris Rodriguez on electric guitar, Bill Jones on tenor sax and Lisa Rodriguez and Donna McElroy doing background vocals.  I can’t recall who was playing drums.

Lyrics

I’m with you every day but you’ve never noticed

To you I’m just a face on the street outside

But you don’t even know that I live next to ya’

No you don’t know the color of my eyes

Yours are blue like the summer sky

I wish I knew why they don’t see me

 

     But you don’t ever look, no you never even notice

     It’s like I don’t exist in the same world as you do

     Maybe I’m in black and white or a little out of focus

     Cause everyday another change goes by and the moment is lost

     In the blink of an eye

 

I can’t sleep at night in this room next to ya’

Knowing you’re so close yet so far away

But I’m the one who holds you in your dreams

I’m the lover that you’ve never seen

But everyday you just walk right by

 

     And you don’t ever look, no you never even notice

     It’s like I don’t exist in the same world as you do

     Maybe I’m in black and white or a little out of focus

     Cause everyday another change goes by and the moment is lost

     In the blink of an eye

 

        I just keep on waiting – but you don’t see me

        Waiting, waiting

        For you to see the love in my eyes

 

     But you don’t ever look, no you never even notice

     It’s like I don’t exist in the same world as you do

     Maybe I’m in black and white or a little out of focus

     Cause everyday another change goes by and the moment is lost

     In the blink of an eye
