about

This is a Rob song that I loved, and recorded a lo-fi version of in 2008 for my collection "Walking With Feet." It's become a favourite for everybody who heard that record, and we decided that it should be a RF/WL song. It's great to have had the chance to re-record it proper, and I think it's got a new RF/WL signature on it.

lyrics

No Big Deal - Red Falcon / White Lightning

Sunny days make up for your crooked ways/
I watch you scramblin' tryin' to find yourself through the maze/
Are you still fallin'? Watch out for them rocks at the bottom/
Dry your eyes with the grey in the blue sky/

I used to pretend that I didn't notice you/
Then I'd go home write all my songs about you/
I never did tell you the way that I feel/
Just set it aside like it's no big deal/

I keep wastin' time livin' in the past/
But the friendships I've made, I know they will last and last/
I used to think I was on top of the world/
But now, somehow, I keep on playin' the fool/

I used to pretend that I didn't notice you/
Then I'd go home write all my songs about you/
I never did tell you the way that I feel/
Just set it aside like it's no big deal/

So if you're listening, I guess it's goodbye/
Sometimes I look back, and ask myself why/
I never wrote to you, or bought you some flowers/
The talks we would have, would go on for hours/

I used to pretend that I didn't notice you/
Then I'd go home write all my songs about you/
I never did tell you the way that I feel/
Just set it aside like it's no big deal/
