Grand Romantic
Nate Ruess Lyrics


And I, I just wanted you so bad
And I, I just wanted you so bad
I don't know where I'm going
I don't know who to trust anymore
One thing's for sure: that I can't fall asleep without you next to me, babe
Mmm, I'm a mess
Hey, I, hey, I
You know I wanted you bad, baby
Hey
Hey

And I, I just wanted you so bad
Hey, hey
I, I just wanted you so bad
Hey, hey
I, you know I wanted you so bad
You know I want you so bad, bad, bad, bad
Bad, bad, bad
Bad, bad, bad, bad, bad, bad, hey

Step right up for the grand romantic
Always tragic broken bones
Step right up, it's the grand romantic
Karma, leave these kids alone
Step right up for the grand romantic
Always tragic broken bones
Step right up, it's the grand romantic
Karma, leave these kids alone
I don't wanna live as the grand romantic
Grand romantic anymore
I don't wanna live as the grand romantic
Grand romantic anymore

SOME NIGHTS, ALL THE PRETTY GIRLS are looking up for STARS in the sky, 
wishing that there is someone who can 
LIGHT A ROMAN CANDLE WITH THEM.
when THE GAMBLER says that he was OUT ON THE TOWN,
WALKING HIS DOG under the SIGHT OF THE SUN, 
He sings WE ARE YOUNG under the BARLIGHTS and
keeps saying to the lonesome guy who're ALL ALONE that time,
"its ALL ALRIGHT dude, CARRY ON all your problems and sorrows,
TAKE YOUR TIME to COME HOME. IT GETS BETTER soon."
The lonesome guy put his ONE FOOT in front of the table, and said,
WHY AM I THE ONE? then the gambler response,
 I WANNA BE THE ONE who you believe, just BELIEVE IN ME. 
and the lonesome guy stand and shouts,
AT LEAST I'M NOT AS SAD AS I USED TO BE!  then he smiles,
and ask the gambler, "who are you?"
the gambler says, I am BENSON HEDGES, 
and all i wanted to do all my life is to have FUN.

"Grand Romantic" was the last song to get added to the album, but kinda one of the oldest. It was supposed to be the last song on the album, and it used to start out as a weird, almost spoken word song that built up into the "I just wanted you so bad". But then once we started writing "Brightside", I decided that should be the last song. Plus I stole a bunch of the lyrics from the original "Grand Romantic" for it. 

So we decided not to throw out the entire thing, and instead we got pretentious and turned the rest of the song into a bunch of interludes. Jeff took the "I just wanted you so bad" part of the song and turned it into a really long and beautiful interlude, and we had Will add some drums. 

I was pretty moved by the music, but it didn't have a typical song structure, so I was struggling to write a consistent melody. While I was in Sweden on a promo trip, our engineer Andrew and I decided to go into the studio and that's where it finally clicked and I got the vocal takes I loved. It was starting to feel like a song instead of an interlude, so we had Ryan layer some acoustics, and while I was still in Europe, Jeff took my high "step right up" vocal guide and recorded a women's choir in LA. 

We loved the song so much that we scrapped the interlude idea, and we found that it fit perfectly after "It Only Gets Much Worse" (same key). I like to think it kinda wraps up the album in a way. And because of that we cut it up on the last day and used it as the intro to the album as well.

Really missing you here in the UK Mr Nate Ruess. So hoping to hear that you are going to treat us all to some new material.
I am guessing you are so in love with being a daddy, the music for now has taken a little bit of a step back....and who could blame you ?
I would love to know if you are still writing for other artists .
I listen to all the tracks you have already gifted us , from way back with the format , FUN , and now as a solo artist .Your music has been such a comfort while I have been poorly . My favourite saying is "world off ....music on" :) xx
