Nearly Lost You
Screaming Trees Lyrics


Did you hear the distant cry
Calling me back to my sin
Like the one you knew before
Calling me back once again

I nearly, I nearly lost you there
And it's taken us somewhere
I nearly lost you there
Let's try to sleep now

Drag me far enough to know
I'm blind every mile that you burn
There's a rider that's fallen and
It's clear there's no time to return

I nearly, I nearly lost you there
And it's taken us somewhere
I nearly lost you there
Well let's try to sleep now

Did you hear the distant lie
Calling me back to my sin
Like the one you knew before
Calling me back once again

I nearly, I nearly lost you there
And it's taken us somewhere
I nearly lost you there
Well let's try to sleep now
I nearly lost you there
I nearly lost you
I nearly lost you there
I nearly lost you there
I nearly lost you there
Oh yeah, oh yeah, yeah oh
Nearly lost you there

My favorite Mark Lanegan moment:
It was pretty basic but utterly perfect.

Screaming Trees at the Gorge in George, Washington - I don’t remember if it was a Lollapalooza or something else. My friend and I had great seats front and center right behind the pit.

I was coming back to our seats right when ST started Nearly Lost You with that great guitar riff into those drums. As soon as he started singing I threw my arms in the air and skipped down the aisle in utter joy and made people laugh- perfect weather, great seats, great show and unimaginably gorgeous view. Every time I hear that song it rivets me to that moment.

A perfect day.

Born of the water
Born of the flame
This life is a monster
Don't you know its name?
The house, it is wooden
The house, it is stone
The proud broken hearted
And close to the bone
Once you had a nightmare
And then it came to pass
Crazy sky in the morning
Green as the grass coverin' a grave
Just a slip away
Just a slip away
Hmm, just a slip away
Down to the water
Drawn to the flame
This life will leave you crippled
Don't you know the game?
Once you woke up choking
But then you held it down
Dry as the sand in the desert
Black as the clouds coverin' the sun

Rest in Peace Mark. A voice that aged like a fine wine, silky smooth as honey, with a hazy bourbony tinge of comfort. Gone too soon
