Jandek – I Had'nt Been There Before lyrics

I hardly saw you right away
But I heard about you, all good things
It's important we go in the right direction
And I took all those soft words
Changed all the direction of things
I said that I liked you, and that was the end of it all
And the beginning of everything else
I hadn't been there before, no no no no no no no no no I
Hadn't been there before, no no no no no no no no no I
Hadn't been there before
I lost my rational brain
I just thought everything was all right
I dropped all my guard
I was so happy, I still am
Whatever it is that you are
If what she said was right, that's a good place to start
