New Song Lyrics: Feels So Good

Feels So Good is another of the three “new” songs that Leonard has already played on his tour of New Zealand. It’s a slow and meandering blues number, and its lyrics seem to have themselves meandered into existence, evolving several times since the song was first performed live.

Here’s the lyrics as performed in Auckland:

Feels so good
not to love you like I did,
Feels so good
not to love you like I did,
It’s like they tore away my blindfold
and they said “we’re going to let this prisoner live,”
It’s like they tore away my blindfold
and they said “we’re going to let this prisoner live.”

Feels so good,
to wake up in the morning by myself,
Cup of coffee in the kitchen,
fire up a little danger to my health,
I loved you when I loved you
but it always felt like I was someone else,
Yeah I loved you when I loved you
but it always felt like I was someone else.

Well you drift into my dreams
as though you had the right,
And you show me how you broke me
doing all the little things I really like.
But I let it all go by
just so long as you and I don’t have to fight.
I let it all go by
just so long as you and I don’t have to fight.

And it feels so good
not to wonder who you’re with,
Who you love, who you touch and
who you kiss.
Ah baby, did you ever guess
there would be a side of loneliness as sweet as this?
Would you ever guess that
there’s a side of loneliness as sweet as this?

I’m running late,
down that river to the sea.
I don’t need another lesson in
geography.
You were the world, baby.
Ah you were the world to me.
You were the world.
You were the world to me.

I don’t know about tomorrow
but I know what’s coming next,
I was broken when I met you,
and I was broken on the day that I left,
No, I couldn’t do it living,
but I love you with my dying breath,
I couldn’t do it living, baby,
but I love you with my dying breath.

    It’s really great listening to this song evolve over the course of the Tour. The version played on 29 October in Auckland runs for just over 10 minutes with some nice solos from Bob on guitar, Dino on chromatic harp and Neil on Hammond B3/Leslie. It also has a repeat of a slightly changed first verse after the “side of loneliness as sweet as this” verse.
