about

Another track from Graceland, probably Mr. Simon's best known album. This one I changed pretty drastically from the source material too, and for a lot of the same reasons as "You Can Call Me Al". When I listen to this song, I can't really tell what he's saying except for the refrain - "You don't feel you could love me, but I feel you could." That line alone was enough to make me decide to cover this song, I love it so. But when I started learning it I realized the rest of the lyrics are exactly what I've come to expect from Paul Simon, deep yet simple and beautiful in their subtlety. That chorus though, I can't get enough of it. "You don't feel you could love me, but I feel you could."
