about

This is a different and more folksy version of a song that I had previously recorded on my "Idee Fixe" album. I played this song a lot in up North with Mike Trebilcock and I wanted to record a version closer to how we had been playing it. This song, as with all the songs on this album is featured in the Sadie Saturday Nite show.

lyrics

Nice (capoed up 2 frets)

Summer Love It’s a drag

When it’s over I want it back

Fall is here Bittersweet

How can I stand on my own 2 feet

You went away It feel apart

You lost yourself and I lost my heart

Pre chorus
I came back Nothing’s the same

Only the shit the pain

I’m your rock but I’m sinking down

Never do like to touch the ground

Chorus:

It’s not nice without you
It’s not nice without you

Chocolate bunny with a gaping hole
Drive-by hug you’ve got to go
You see me cross against the light
Drive by hug another fight
Once and a while you shake the globe
Flurries settle and I’m snowed

When you’re around When you’re around

It’s not nice without you
It’s not nice without you
