That's Us/Wild Combination
Arthur Russell Lyrics


That's us, before we got there
That's morning time, before we got there
I just want to be, wherever you are
Hard as I can be, it's never too hard
With this our love to see, by it's own light
Love inside of me, it's working at night
Seconds before I see in the dark
Seconds turn, this time that, it's so...
Coming to, seconds turn, this time that I
Such fun to be with
It's a big old world
With nothing in it
I can't wait to see you another minute
It's a wild combination, it's a wild combination
It's a wild, it's a loving you baby
It's a talk in the dark, it's a walk in the morning
That's us, before we got there
That's morning time, before we got there
For a price, push up and be part of it all
Surfing, swimming
It's a wild combination
That's us before we got there
That's morning time before we got there
That's you, me, on self-timer
We're leaving at five in the morning
We could get better mileage
That's you, in the pool, you're a swimmer
What a winner, you peek out
That's us before we got there
That's morning time, before we got there
That's you, me, on self-timer
We're leaving at five in the morning
We could get better mileage
That's you in the pool, it's a swimmer
What a winner, you peek

I can't speak for anyone else, but this song makes me feel things that are hard to explain, but it's like the feeling of being out alone, in the cold, in complete darkness, yet you have one nightlight and the biggest, warmest, most cozy blanket keeping you safe.

I highly recommend checking out EVERYTHING that Arthur Russell did. Audika records has released a treasure trove of his material and it is all brilliant. The early acoustic guitar, almost country, balladry all the way to his composed/not composed pieces- it is all unique and inspired. And don’t sleep on his disco wizardry. Two of his best tracks ever, Kiss Me Again — under the alias of Dinosaur— and Tell You (Today) — as Loose Joints— are definitely worth seeking out, as Audika does not have licensing for them. They have been made more available on vinyl in recent years. Soul Jazz Records comp of Arthur’s stuff dives into his other disco stuff quite a bit more.

Thanks Randall! My new favorite artist. This guy is like the new Nick Drake or something in terms of post-mortem success

Ideal comment. Arthur covers so much ground and it's all amazing. Go Bang #5 is my favorite song, but all of the different styles from World of Echo to Love is Overtaking me are just as much of a joy to hear. To think he left all those hundreds of tapes behind--this timeline is not all bad!

Totally agree, Arthur Russell was brilliant in all forms. I had no idea stuff like Dinosaur and Loose Joints had been made available on vinyl, I'll have to look for that. I go nuts for Kiss Me Again.

I love to come back to this song and see that there is always new, heart-felt comments on it.

Your mom is a new heart-felt comment... I'm sorry. Why does it feel like I crashed into these feelings? I hope you're having a great day

They've played Arthur Russell' music exclusively here in the coffee house I frequent daily for years, in Portland Oregon, Spielman Bagels & Coffee. I never asked about him until today. I was shocked to see that he passed away in 1992. Now I want to research documentaries about his music. It's fantastic. His style reminds me of a milder version of something Brian Eno would produce.

Spielman Bagels & Coffee sounds like my sort of place. And the Eno and Arther Rusell comparison, thats actually quite a good comparison. This song in particular reminds me of the early Eno solo stuff, melodical yet unorthodox sounds. Little hooks and themes that come again over the duration of the song in waves. I'm thinking Eno Babys on Fire, The True Wheel and Spinning Away to name a few singles compare particularly well. I'm a big fan of both

I’m amazed at how popular he’s gotten.
