    Lyrics »

Hello, it's me I've thought about us for a long, long time
Maybe I think too much but something's wrong
There's something here that doesn't last too long
Maybe I shouldn't think of you as mine

Seeing you
Or seeing anything as much as I do you
I take for granted that you're always there
I take for granted that you just don't care
Sometimes I can't help seeing all the way through

It's important to me that you know you are free
'Cause I never want to make you change for me

Think of me
You know that I'd be with you if I could
I'll come around to see you once in a while
Or if I ever need a reason to smile
And spend the night if you think I should

CommentsRecorded at The Record Plant, N.Y. He gets a little nervous on the second middle-8, but regains his cookies and chalks up another above average performance. The kid waxes funky for the fadeout. There are many people now in the studio, dancing and gyrating in a hypnotic manner. But when the song is over, he finds that the girl is gone. Again he is alone, meandering around the giant studio complex (which has been operating at a loss for seven months). He passes an open door where a bunch of 'hepcapts' (studio musicians) are doing a date. He is recognized. Serge: "There goes Todd" O.H. "Yipes!" They decide to 'jam' The kid waxes jive and breaks into a message song a la New Tempts (not to demean anyone's sincere intentions, including mine).

What about NAZZ?
Review written by Anonymous, January 26th, 2011

Actually, this song first appeared in 1968 on the first of three NAZZ albums. Yes, Todd's been around with this song...and a fine tune it is.
