Jeff Buckley - So Real

Love, let me sleep tonight on you couch
And remember the smell of the fabric
Of your simple city dress

Oh... that was so real

We walked around til the moon got full like a plate
The wind blew an invocation and I fell asleep at the gate
And I never stepped on the cracks 'cause I thought I'd hurt my mother
And I couldn't awake from the nightmare that sucked me in and pulled me under
Pulled me under

Oh... that was so real

I love you, but I'm afraid to love you
I love you, but I'm afraid to love you
I'm afraid...

Oh... that was so real

"So Real" is song #5 on Jeff Buckley's 1994 album Grace. It was also released as a single - the 3rd single from the album - and had a video. Michael Tighe, a guitarist who joined Buckley late in the recording of Grace, brought with him what was to become the main riff on "So Real" that is played during the verses. "Forget Her" was originally on the album track list, but Buckley subsequently replaced it with "So Real". The former, while not appearing on the album, was subsequently released on the second disc of the 10th anniversary Legacy Edition of Grace, and is also on the official Jeff Buckley site, with a recent video made of existing footage of Buckley while alive. This video is also found on the DVD that comes with the aforementioned Legacy Edition. "I love "So Real" because it's the actual quartet that you see in that picture right there that you have on the wall, on the album. And that one I produced live ­all one moment, the vocal is the first take, all one take. It was three o'clock in the morning."
