Versions

I Would For You

This is the only known version. A beat loop characterised by quick double kicks opens this track, with deep bass and quiet vocals creating the first verse. Choruses open up with a simpler, clearer drum loop, a different bassline, and strange guitar layering that acts like a strings keyboard patch, creating a large stage for Reznor's loud and echoing vocals. The second chorus is followed by a new distorted guitar riff, which repeats as synth and percussion layers build; these eventually give way to a solitary piano melody, which quietly segues into "In Two" in a method recalling "Lights in the Sky" becoming "Corona Radiata" on The Slip.

Lyrics

What a pathetic 
stray of words
Just leave them 
laying on the floor
The one posted 
on the door
Not over here, 
not anymore
There I was a place
I could have been
Step over where
it used to be
Since you 
redeemed yourself
Come in
Some things 
I'd rather you not see
See I keep 
lying to myself
Don't know what else there is to do 
If I can be 
somebody else
Well I think 
I would for you
Didn't it seem like 
something more
So long I can't
remember when
All this has happened all before
And this has happened all again
And I only have 
myself to blame
And I only have 
myself to blame
See I keep lying 
to myself
Don't know what else there is to do 
If I can be 
somebody else
Well I think 
I would for you
See I keep lying 
to myself
Don't know what else there is to do
If I can be 
somebody else
Well I think 
I would for you
