Something isn't just quite how you planned
Something isn't just like it ever seemed
This is not what you had planned

But, baby, don't you even know what's right
But, babe, got to have something, something right
This is not what you had planned

    General CommentAccording to an interview, he came home one night, drunk, after his girlfriend had dumped him. He sat down at his piano and hit the RECORD button on a nearby tape player, and banged out this tune, making it and the lyrics up as he went along, drunk and heartbroken. Hence the rawness, and lo-fi sound. It's become one of my favorites of theirs.

    General CommentIf any other band did that drawn-out "babe", it'd be so awkward
    but this is a great song.
