Recently I've been
All of content and dreaming I have been
'Cause I been lately seeing
Quite a bit of this woman live on my street
People stare and we just ignore everything
People stare and we just ignore them
And they go away, go away

She comes to me
I watch her drink
I watch her comb her hair
Both say that we never before have
Felt as recently

People stare and we just ignore
What's the use in hiding out
She says all the time
Let their eyes do the worrying about

She and me go to places quiet
Where we are quite alone
Kiss and we hold together
We will be until we done

People stare and we just ignore
What's the use in hiding out
She says all the time
Let their eyes do the worring about

Walk and talk
We both do quite well
And kissing all the time
Kissing all the time
And I'm looking forward to much more

Both say the we never before
Never before have felt as recently
People stare and we just ignore everything
People stare and we just ignore them
And they go away, go away

    General CommentRecently is a song about a relationship that Dave had with a girl in
    Cape Town, South Africa.  He basically describes their relationship by saying that the
    couple isn't afraid of being seen and isn't worried about the other
    things going on around them. Dave has said that this is one of his
    favorite songs.  This song has many different Intros and Outros.

    General Commentthink it means once your with the one you love you don't care what other people think or say about you, cause all that matters is if you're happy with the one you love

    General Commenti couldn't agree more with you guys. but i think that the best version of this song is recorded on red rocks live 95. the last verse is so moving...

    I say, "I will give you water,
    If you will share your wine,
    And I will feed your heart,
    If you promise to feed mine."
    And so we will dance together,
    Until the end of time,
    Until the end of time.

    General CommentThe Folsom Field version and the live at... (warehouse) version intro's start simmilarly:

    Some people like to drink
    Some people don't
    FF: Some people like to get drunk as hell at someone
    L@: Some people like to smoke a fat one, someone
    Some people do it
    Some people don't that's okay that's just the way it's supposed to be hey
    Some people do, some people don't
    Some people will and others, they won't
    Some people do, some people don't (repeat)

    I don't know what these have to do with the rest of the song, but I think it's cool how Dave acknowledges that there are people in the world (maybe even his big fans (me for one)) don't drink or smoke pot, but that it's a good thing that everyone doesn't do it.

    Great song, I think that there can be many circumstances where some people look down on other's relationships for various resons (interracial, interclass, etc), but if love is true and legitmate then we shouldn't care about what others think. Let them stare, and we'll just ignore.

    General CommentThe Red Rocks version has a lot of improv too.
