Kristin Hersh - Echo & Teeth (live, unplugged)

I like Kristin, a lot.


White label on the backseat
Glows an artificial green
I crave a midnight something
I crave and something hunts me down
I'm scaring everybody
I'm wearing everybody down
White label on the backseat
And something bends me over, down
I crave an empty lifestyle
I crave the very loudest sound
I'm chasing everybody
I'm shaking everybody down
Do you hear the loudest sound?
And you and me in the echo?
White label on the backseat
And something warm across my lap
I never bitched at anyone
I never asked for my heart back
I'm loving everybody
And hating everyone I see
Do you still remember me?
Floating out on the echo


I could get a piece of meat from a barren tree
nothing ever spoiled on me
You brought this you dipshit
nothing ever spoiled on me
That cloud stomps around my house
does whatever it pleases, it teases me
what the hell?
never was a baritone till you stepped in
never dried my halters on the line
this hairdo's truly evil
I'm not sure it's mine.
You're so tall
it's like I climb a waterfall
What I said was get me a drink alright?
what am I supposed to sit
and look at you all night?
All girls cry like I said,
I don't know why.
