Tyler Demo Lyrics

Postby greenhulkboy on Thu Dec 29, 2016 6:48 pm

Hello Forum. The old guitarist of the Toadies has a YouTube channel that has old demos and rehearsals. I thank him for posting these because they are awesome. There is one particular early performance of one of my favorite songs from the Toadies, Tyler. I think this recording captures the style of early Toadies and it definitely is up there with the 1993 release. But here is the thing. Vaden writes amazing lyrics and lyrics also mean a lot to me for a song. Knowing the lyrics means that you could know what he is singing and also sing along too. But this recording isn't crystal clear and it's hard to understand a couple parts of the song. I hope to put together full lyrics and seeking help to understand what the hell he is saying. Thank you.

Lock myself inside the bathroom
Place my back against the door
Watch the shower run water turns to steam
Maybe tonight I'll go and see her
She'll be beautiful for me

Across the yard I hear the dogs bark
Keep well hidden by the trees
Reach the window with her virgin eyes she walks right by for me
This is the room where I first saw her
I will be with her tonight

Simple life, in the country, is great,
It's beautiful, It's peaceful, It's easy, It's great.

Ten o'clock she writes in her diary
Brushes her hair out for the night
Turns the light on while she changes to her night gown
Listen (maybe "mister" or "listen"), tonight I'll be with her
She is beautiful tonight

Simple life, in the country, is great,
It's beautiful, It's peaceful, It's easy, It's great.

I find a window in the kitchen where I let myself in
I rummage through the refrigerator and I find myself a beer
I can't believe I'm really and she's lying in that bed
I can feel her arms around me. I can feel her anxious breath
I stumble in the hallway outside her bedroom door
I hear her call out to me. I hear the fear in her voice.
She pulls her covers tighter. I press against her door
I will be with her tonight...
I will be with her tonight...
I will be with her tonight...
I will be with her tonight...
I will be with her tonight...

I had a problem with this part. It is very hard to make out those couple words and I don't think it matches (it closely resembles "adulterous eyes" but that doesn't sound right either). But the rest of the lyrics are spot on. Thanks so much.
