you and i…

wilcoep08

ok this is big news. just came across wilco‘s collaboration with feist on their forthcoming wilco (the album). it’s called you and i, and, in fitting with much of the rest of the album, it’s an upbeat jaunt that looks at the gaps in relationships that just don’t need to be filled. to be honest they’re not really venturing into unchartered water musically speaking, but there’s some lovely reversed guitar soloing at the end. hey maybe their next collab will be with boards of canada? i live in hope…

Wilco (ft Feist) – You And I

you and i
we might be strangers
however close we get sometimes
it’s like we never met

but you and i
i think we can take it
all the good with the bad
make something that no one else has

but you and i
you and i
me and you
what can we do

when the words we use
sometimes are misconstrued
well i won’t guess what’s coming next
i can never tell you
the deepest well
i’ve ever fallen into

oh i don’t wanna know
oh i don’t wanna know
oh i don’t need to know
everything about you

oh i don’t wanna know
and you don’t need to know
that much about me

you and i
we might be strangers
however close we get sometimes
it’s like we never met

but you and i
i think we can take it
all the good with the bad
make something that no one else has

but you and i
you and i
you and i
you and i
you and i
you and i
you and i
you and i
you and i…
