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 string of words
  Just leave them lying on the floor
  The warning posted on the door
  Not over here, not anymore
  
  There was a place it could have been
  Step over all that used to be
  Since you have let yourself come in
  Some things I'd rather you not see
  
  See like a light into myself
  Don't know what else there is to do
  If I could 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 will happen all again
  
  And I only have myself to blame
  And I only have myself to blame
  
  See like a light into myself
  Don't know what else there is to do
  If I could be somebody else
  Well I think I would for you
  
  See like a light into myself
  Don't know what else there is to do
  If I could be somebody else
  Well I think I would for you
