Lately Nothing
(Spencer Gibb)

To say I believe in every single lie you told
Would just make us even
And even then you'd see that
I'd be ever so afraid
No one sleeping in
This bed I've made

Chorus
And Lately I find nothing's rolling
Really quite the same way that it
Used to do
Somebody told me in the morning
You're still....

You say that you're leaving
I wouldn't blame you if you tried
If I had a reason
I would've found the time and
I'll be never quite the same
No one sleeping in
This bed I've made

Chorus
And Lately I find nothing's rolling
Really quite the same way that it
Used to do
Somebody told me in the morning
You're still you (x2)

[You're still...]

How do you stop these wheels from turning round?
How do you learn to watch them roll?
Maybe I'm just born with all these problems
Ah, we never seem to solve
Maybe it's unfair of me to be so cold

Chorus (x2)
And lately I find nothing's rolling
Really quite the same way that it used to do
Somebody told me in the morning
You're still you

[You're still you] (fade)

Lyrics transposed by Heather Howe


Song Info: [5:43]: From the album Jez Spencer: 4-Track Mind.
"I really don't remember what this song's about except I remember the line "somebody told me in the morning you're still you" came from a story Johnny (Goudie) told me. I don't remember the story though. The reason there are so many bass credits is because we had a hard time getting sounds to balance on this tune (only 4 tracks remember) and we re-cut the bass at different times, so (once again) I don't remember who is on the final cut or if it's a composite of all three. I know I played the original line, but what's on this version sounds too smooth to be me, so I don't know. I met Matthew Vaughan at a coffee shop where I was doing a songwriter in the round and he was playing violin and asked if he could sit in. We said no, but I asked him if he'd come over and play on a song. He was from New Mexico and only in town for a day, so I picked him up at his hotel the next morning, he played the tune, I bought him lunch and then he left and I never saw him again. He did give me a cowboy hat though, and I have a really disgusting story about him that's not suitable for this record. Beautiful violin part, although when I asked to record the sound of him tuning at the start of the song he thought I was a fucking lunatic." - Spencer Gibb
