If Nigel says he’s happy, he must be happy, he must be happy, in his way.

“Nigel isn’t outspoken, but he likes to speak and he loves to be spoken to.”

^I blame my sappy memory for getting the quote wrong.

In my defense though, I think my lyric works better.

Reminds me of “Sweet Child O’ Mine” by Guns & Roses. The lyrics in question is:

“I’d hate to look into those eyes
And see an ounce of pain”

The lyric I hear:

“I’d hate to look into those eyes
And see a trace of pain”

It is subtle I admit, trading the repeated ‘n’ sound against the repeated ‘a’ sound. However, meaningwise, an ounce of pain is a lot more than a trace. Presumably, one would like to see the least amount of pain in a loved one’s face.

Another one is “Stepping Out” by Joe Jackson. https://youtu.be/PJwt2dxx9yg

The lyric there is:

“We are young but getting old before our time”

What I always heard:

“We are young but getting it all before our time”

Makes more sense to me.

I’m just saying.
