propinquity

You gotta love this song for the title alone... A little ditty by Michael Nesmith, from his post-Monkees career as a country crooner. Also covered by the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band on their "Uncle Charlie.... " album.

I’ve Know For A Long Time, The Kind Of Girl You Are
Of A Smile That Covers Teardrops, The Way Your Head Yields To Your Heart
Of Things You’ve Kept Inside, That Most Girls Couldn’t Bear
I’ve Known You For A Long Time, But I’ve Just Begun To Care

I’ve Known Of All The Heartache, And I’ve Known Of All The Pain
I’ve Seen You In The Sunshine, And I’ve Seen You When It Rains
I’ve Seen You Make A Look Of Love, From Just An Icy Stare
I’ve Known You For A Long Time, But I’ve Just Begun To Care

I Know I’ve Been Blind, To Not Have Loved You All This Time
But The Image Of You Wasn’t Clear, I Guess I’ve Been Standing Too Near

Oh It’s Taken Me A While, But I Have Finally Found
What You Are To Me, And That’s What Really Counts
And What You Are To Me, Is Something We Can Share
I’ve Known You For A Long Time, But I’ve Just Begun To Care

Oh It’s Taken Me A While, But I Have Finally Found
What You Are To Me, And That’s What Really Counts
And What You Are To Me, Is Something We Can Share
I’ve Known You For A Long Time, But I’ve Just Begun To Care

Yes I’ve Known You For A Long Time, But I’ve Just Begun To Care

I like the Nesmith version better, here's a clip:

NGBD's version is slower, and almost dirge-like... You can hear a 30 sec clip of it at Amazon:
