Nearly Lost You

I love 90’s radio. Luckily our local “alternative” station, 99x, has a healthy does of what I guess you’d call “classic alternative” or 90’s alt-rock. I got to catch the great “grunge” tune Nearly Lost You by Screaming Trees and I wanted to share the love.

Did you hear the distant cry
Calling me back to my sin
Like the one you knew before
Calling me back once again

I nearly, I nearly lost you there
And it’s taken us somewhere
I nearly lost you there
Let’s try to sleep now

Drag me far enough to know
I’m blind every mile that you burn
There’s a rider that’s fallen and
It’s clear there’s no time to return

I nearly, I nearly lost you there
And it’s taken us somewhere
I nearly lost you there
Well let’s try to sleep now

Did you hear the distant lie
Calling me back to my sin
Like the one you knew before
Calling me back once again

I nearly, I nearly lost you there
And it’s taken us somewhere
I nearly lost you there
Well let’s try to sleep now
I nearly lost you there
I nearly lost you
I nearly lost you there
I nearly lost you there
I nearly lost you there
Oh yeah, nearly lost you there

I think the guitarists went on to help found Queens of the Stone Age and the lead singer went solo. Love the smokey-voiced, feeback-induced, crunchy rock of this one, though.

Hope you enjoyed my lyrical barbecue.
