Riff: Jack Johnson – “As I Was Saying”

Sep 16, 2013

Well I don’t want to disappoint you/And I don’t want to disappear from here or now or you

from As I Was Saying lyrics by Jack Johnson

One of the few tracks on From Here To Now To You which suggests that not everything in Johnson’s world is always so entirely 100% perfect, “As I Was Saying” sees him desperately try to win back favor with his wife after suffering a severe case of foot-in-mouth syndrome.
