Lyrics   status: confirmed

Wish I could change the way that you feel
Standing with him, you feel more real
Looking so sweet with all your might
Trustin' in him to fully ignite
Holding his hand like a brand new kite
Blue eyes sparkle open alright
Wish I could see the girl who'd fight
Playin' and laughin' and tryin' to show it
Runnin' and fumblin' and dying to know it
Staring you down with her gaze, hold it
Wish I could free you but I can't, don't blow it

Angel
Gonna show it
Blow it
The devil
Go and hold it
Angel
Gonna show it
Blow it
Blow it

Becuz of you, becuz of you
Becuz of you, becuz of you
Becuz of you, becuz of you
Becuz of you, becuz of you
Becuz of you, becuz of you
Becuz of you, becuz of you
Becuz of you, becuz of you
Becuz of you, becuz of you
Wish I could free you but I can't, don't blow it
Wish I could free you but I can't, don't know it

Track length: 4:43

First Known Performance: 03/25/95
Last Known Performance:  08/25/96

NOTES:

  • Working Title: "Jim Carrol"
  • Track 9 is the unlisted instrumental coda to Becuz. The label wanted an "accessible" first track, so SY spliced the instrumental ending to the song off and gave it its own track (to much better overall effect, if you ask me).
  • Premiered live instrumentally in early '95.
  • Intentional homage to Patti Smith's "Because The Night".
