lyrics

this is a wilco cover.


his goal in life was to be an echo.
cruisin around town after town, toll after toll,
a fixed bayonet thru the great southwest to forget her.
she appears in his dreams
but in his car, and in his arms, a dream could mean anything.
a cheap sunset on a television set could upset her
but he never could.

remember to remember me,
standing still in your past,
floating fast like a hummingbird

his goal in life was to be an echo
the type of sound that floats around and then back down like a feather
but in the deep chrome canyons of the loudest Manhattans no one could hear him or anything.
so he slept on a mountain
in a sleeping bag underneath the stars he would lie awake and count them
and the great fountain spray of the great milky way would never let him die alone.

remember to remember me,
standing still in yr past,
floating fast like a hummingbird.
