Beautiful Songs: Glycerine by Bush

'Glycerine' is from Bush's debut album, Sixteen Stone, and is a truly beautiful song. That palm-muted guitar, so simple, yet so effective; a haunting melody, and, of course, Gavin Rossdale's awesome voice.

A British band virtually shunned in their homeland, yet adored in America, Bush are one of my all-time favourite bands.

Must be your skin that I'm sinkin in
Must be for real cause now I can feel
and I didn't mind
it's not my kind
not my time to wonder why
everything's gone white
and everything's grey
now your here now you away
I don't want this
remember that
I'll never forget where your at
don't let the days go by

I'm never alone
I'm alone all the time
are you at one
or do you lie
we live in a wheel
where everyone steals
but when we rise it's like strawberry fields

If I treated you bad
you bruise my face
couldn't love you more
you got a beautiful taste
don't let the days go by
could have been easier on you
I coudn't change though I wanted to
could have been easier by three
our old friend fear and you and me
glycerine (repeat)
don't let the days go by

I needed you more
when we wanted us less
I could not kiss just regress
it might just be
clear simple and plain
that's just fine
that's just one of my names
don't let the days go by
could've been easier on you
