Untitled Song Lyrics

"The Untitled Song" is an Emily Saliers composition. It originally
appeared on "Blue Food," and it has been performed as recently as
1989. Actually, I seem to recall someone telling me that they heard
it more recently... At any rate, I think that it may have been the
first truly great IG song, IMHO, and still ranks right up there as
one of the best.

The Untitled Song.
I tried my best to get over you
Kept my distance so I wouldn't have to show
That the things which I kept hidden
By my casual smile
Were the things that I needed you to know.
You could have seen the acting on the stage
You could have read the writing on the page
You could have noticed that a heart went breaking into two
But you never knew it was I was falling for you.
Sometimes I still think that I could get to you
Then I laugh, and think I could swim the seven seas
It seems when I'm set to fly, there's a storm up in the sky
When I'm set to sail, there isn't any breeze.
You could have seen the acting on the stage
You could have read the writing on the page
You could have noticed that a heart went breaking into two
But you never knew it was I was falling for you.
(solo)
It's been some time now that I saw you in a photograph
Looking just the way you did so long ago
I could almost see you throw your head back
And start to laugh in that gentle way that used to let me know
Things were okay, and a hurting song is just a cliche
And what's the use if they only always fade away
Just like the sun - just like everyone - but you.
