If I lay my head down I will see you in my dream
Wearing that polka dot dress and sitting by the stream
Leaning in to hear you, you will whisper in my ear
And everything I need to know I finally hear

    The piano E plays on this track is the same one Neil Young plays on "After the Gold Rush." You're welcome!

    Pointless to repeat it now, but it also reminds me of "After The Goldrush."

    He actually did base "Fresh Feeling" around a loop of the strings from this song.

    I think I can hear a hint of 'fresh feeling' at the end

    It seems every eels song is ambiguous. I love it!

    I love how the two voice variations carry a different message. The one sounds sincere, the other almost mocking.
