    Fooling Myself

    My favorite new song is Fooling Myself & I had resolved myself to listening to the 12/27/09 live version when it wasn't included on the CD. Today I was on iTunes and when I went to the album, I found ithe iTunes version included a 14th song...Fooling Myself! I downloaded it & added it my iPod. So for those of you like myself who bought the CD from BestBuy to get the DVD,go to iTunes & download Fooling Myself...it is a beautiful song!

    Re: Fooling Myself

    yes, fooling myself is a sweet spot on the record for sure. as well as live.

    as Dollar said u can purchase/DL just one track from i-tunes so u dont have to DL the entire CD just to get Fooling Myself...same with the original "paris" which is the bonus trak of th i-tunes version of This IS Somewhere- u can just DL that one song-in both cases on line at i-tunes only. and for This Is Somewhere there were also other bonus tracks on the Japan release and a limited edition from Barnes and Nobles which are not on i-tunes. i am working on compiling all of that. (there were 4 or 5 bonus trax on TIS in all, including paris) there are some other cool tv versions and b-sides of Grace tracks on i-tunes and/or amazon. and dont forget the new mastersounds featuring Grace "nothing but the water" -super funky. i am going to try and get all of these extra songs on one mix/playlist once i have them all DLed and track down a couple old CDs. i just got an email today they sent out my Japanese This Is Somewhere from Japan.

    still loving Low Road i have the bass line stuk in my head all day and night. nasty on the new CD and the Fillmore DvD

    Dollar: I just went to iTunes to listen (downloaded album there, but have been listening to CDs). Thought I didn't know the song, but then realized that kc put it up on tis at least once some time back. Beautiful, but too sad for me today.

    I didn't even know the song existed. I already bought the album from Best Buy and just decided to search it on iTunes for shits and giggles and saw this unfamiliar track listed at #14. It's no surprise that it is my current favorite. I think I've had 4 or 5 favorites in the past month. Just a gorgeous tune.

    Re: Fooling Myself

    here are the lyrics I transcribed from the studio/i-tunes version.

    I am pretty sure this is right but welcome any corrections of course.

    sounds like Grace is not only fooling herself, but talking (singing) to herself as well, if i had to guess. a very touching song if that is the case.

    I will tell u this Grace Potter, you are not fooling yourself whatsoever-or anyone else.
    this is all very real my lady, and if you are waiting to wake up from a dream it's not going to happen.

    ahh...ahh...
    come on, you can talk to me
    come on, I'm ready to receive
    but I can't always read your mind
    and your words are all one of a kind
    oh...

    maybe I feel like I'm fooling myself
    either that or im fooling everyone else
    ahh...ahh...

    and maybe I feel like a piece of my soul
    is hanging around for everyone to hold
    ahh...ahh...

    maybe it's hard just to let it all go
    but its goin, goin, gone right out my door...

    come on, try to smile for me
    open, up and try to breathe
    with your face like a sad china doll
    you've been hiding your heart from it all
    oh...

    and maybe I feel like I'm fooling myself
    either that or I'm fooling everyone else
    ahh...ahh...

    and maybe I feel like a piece of my soul
    is hanging around for everyone to hold
    ahh...ahh...

    maybe it's hard just to let it all go
    but its goin, goin, gone right out my door...

    oh...
    maybe I feel like I'm fooling myself
    either that or I'm fooling everyone else
    ahh...ahh...

    and maybe I feel like a piece of my soul
    is hanging around for everyone to hold
    ahh...ahh...

    maybe it's hard just to let it all go
    but its goin, goin, gone right out my door...
    goin, goin, gone right out my door...

    fooling myself, fooling mys...elf
    fooling myself, fooling mys...elf

    fooling myself, fooling mys...elf

    from the "secret show" at Rockwood Music Hall

    ...correction this impromptu show was at the newer "Rockwood Stage 2" ...the original Rockwood venue that Cat played at is a different, slightly smaller space (right around the corner, i believe). i don't even think there is a such thing as the "Rockwood Music Hall" pretty sure i just made that up. this is 4-22-10, show #2 of 2 that day 4 GPN.(*update: actually the original venue is indeed called the Rockwood Music Hall)

    anyway i think "Fooling Myself" has come a long way live since this performance, but it's still awesome
