Songwriter: Kurt Cobain
Writing Period: 1991
Recording Session: 05-06/91 Sound City Studios, Van Nuys, CA
Common Mislabels: None Documented

In the last week of April 1991, NIRVANA journeyed down to Los Angeles to begin recording their major label debut, Nevermind. It was the band's own decision to have Butch Vig as their producer, choosing him over several other big-name producers, including Scott Litt, Don Dixon and David Briggs. Vig had built up a good rapport with the band through his work on the Smart sessions. "It was such a great experience working with him in Madison", recalls Krist Novoselic. "The label wanted us to work with other people, but it was kinda intimidating, and we were comfortable with Butch."

"At that point, I'd never done any work in Los Angeles", says Vig, "but I knew that was where the band wanted to work, and I knew of Sound City's reputation. The studio is renowned for it's large live room and vintage Neve 8028 console. I worked out a deal so it was cost-effective for us to go there. It was sight unseen. We just booked it and went in."

he band recorded this track live, with Cobain again providing a scratch vocal. It was quickly dropped after a guitar overdub was completed.

Kurt Cobain later gave the song to Courtney Love and Hole released their rendition on some formats of the '93 EP Beautiful Son, which featured a photo of a young Cobain as the front artwork. Hole also released the song on My Body, The Hand Grenade in '97, and played the song during their 1995.02.14 MTV Unplugged session.

Lyrics

One more day to complete my service

One more high to decay my nevous

Wondering how I'm gonna find a way

It's over



One more day to complete my service

One more time here to fade, my servant

One more day if I find a way

Over



She seemed to read minds

And I know a later time

We could make it with you

Leave the soul



Old age
Old age
Old age
Old age

One more day to complain, my servant

One more doubt here to find a servant

One more time here if I find a way

It's over



Wondering how I'm here to date my cover

One more doubt here to save my never

Wondering how I'm gonna find a way

It's over



She seemed to read minds

And I know a later time

We could make it with you

Leave the soul



Old age
Old age
Old age
Old age

Just you need
 and read,
 you flew


And knew 
you read
, you flew



One more day to concrete my circuit

One more high here to find my nervous

Someday I'm gonna find a way

It's over



One more doubt here to claim my supper

I can have anything you want to

One more day if I find a way

It's over



She seemed to read minds

And I know a later time

Breathe the way here with you

Dream the same on dew

Breathe the same on her

Take a moan on a man

Breathe the shame on you

Breathe the lie

Old age
Old age
Old age
Old age
Old age
Old age
Old age
