Tumblr won’t let me upload any of the songs I have by Alina Simone, but you all should definitely check her out. She sounds a lot like Chan Marshall (Cat Power)….like super similar in sound. Her album “Placelessness” is available somewhere on the internet for a free album download.
Well Jesus Christ, I’m not scared to die, I’m a little bit scared of what comes after Do I get the gold chariot? Do I float through the ceiling?
Do I divide and fall apart? Cause my pride is too sly to hold back all my dark And the ship went down in sight of land And at the gates does Thomas ask to see my hands
I know you’ll come in the night like a thief But I’ve had some time alone to hold my lies inside me I know you think that I’m someone you can trust But I’m scared I’ll get scared and I swear I’ll try to nail you back up
So do you think that we could work out a sign So I’ll know it’s you and that it’s over so I won’t even try
I know you’ll come for the people like me But we all got wood and nails Tongue tied to a hating factory
