"Fresh Feeling" as written by Mark O. Everett and Rusty Logsdon....
You don't have a clue
What it is like to be next to you
I'm here to tell you
That it is good
That it is true

Birds singing a song
Old paint is peeling
This is that fresh
That fresh feeling

Words can't be that strong
My heart is reeling
This is that fresh
That fresh feeling

Try
Try to forget what's in the past
Tomorrow is here
Love,
Orange sky above lighting your way
There's nothing to fear

Birds singing a song
Old paint is peeling
This is that fresh
That fresh feeling

Words can't be that strong
My heart is reeling
This is that fresh
That fresh feeling

Some people are good
Babe in the 'hood
So pure and so free
I'd make a safe bet
You're gonna get whatever you need

    General CommentI don't have a clue what it's like to be next to me. It's probably a pretty boring experience though. Like sitting next to a stranger on a bus.

    General CommentE's lyrics ever substandard? E is an absolutely fantastic lyricist, best displayed throughout the entirety of the ultimate life-affirming album, Electro-Shock Blues, on which the sadness throughout has an undercurrent of incredibly sharp and dark wit and humour.

    General CommentThis song is one of those that fills me with this incredible "everything is ok" feeling. It makes the sun shine and the clouds float and all of that jazz.

    "You don't have a clue what it is like to be next to you" - - such incredible, simple, honest words.

    General CommentSays E of this song:

    "I had a fever and felt really miserable. I wanted to write something 'fresh' because I felt so very not fresh. I saw a tape of the string session for one of the songs ['Selective Memory'] from the last album sitting on the desk and thought, 'too bad I can't use those strings.' Then I thought, 'who says I can't?' and Koool G Murder and I set out to find a way to take something from the near past and make it fresh."
