tenderfoot ~ the desperate kingdom of love {pj harvey cover}




ps thank you to @yastrzemski for passing this along. this is one amazing cover!
ps ps
oh love, you were a sickly child
and how the wind knocked you down
put on your spurs, swagger around
in the desperate kingdom of love

holy water cannot help you now
your mysterious eyes cannot help you
selling your reason will not bring you through
the desperate kingdom of love

there's another who looks from behind your eyes
i learn from you how to hide
from the desperate kingdom of love

at the end of this burning world
you'll stand proud, face upheld
and i'll follow you, into heaven or hell
and i'll become, as a girl
in the desperate kingdom of love

laura veirs ~ i can see your tracks


ps
oh i can see your tracks
but i won’t follow them
i’ll just hope for rain
or some kind of crazy wind
to erase them
and chase them into oblivion

oh i can smell the smoke
from your fire, babe
but i’ll leave you alone
and sleep in this lonely cave
and pray for
a storm to scrub this dirt away

oh i can hear the snakes
creeping cross the scene
i’m quaking in my boots
but you won’t hear me scream
you’re half way
down to new orleans
you’re half way
down to new orleans

liza kate



ps it's the never being found


ps your eyes are getting lazy. just let them close. i know you don't know. i'm bones, but i'm still here.


ps i've been turned to stone from inside out. i was thrown to the fires. i was left there to expire.


ps she's a machine. she bleeds and talks back to me and i've heard that she wonders where i am and who i'm running with. i've seen them cut her down. they sent her while her eyes were closed. they peeled both her sides left and right to show her hollow bones. she belongs with me. i'll never leave her alone. she can say what she pleases. i'll never leave her alone.


ps i'm gonna need a place to rest when i'm dead. cut me down that tree i said. come on and comfort me my friend. don't leave me alone in bed. i'm gonna need a place to rest my head. come on and comfort me my friend. for the monsters are out tonight.


ps ps i can't get enough of her. liza kate is incredible. she is on echo in my mind.

before i die i want to_________________________________________

revisit


ps a couple of days ago i went back to the ravine where i found the body of a male who committed suicide by jumping from the bridge. i think about it often and see his face. maybe putting my silhouette near where he laid himself to rest i would be giving a piece of my soul to his spirit.
i stood with the same stare as when i found him and recited a prayer.

ryan adams in the masonic lodge at hollywood forever 10.10.11

monday oct 10, 2011


ps i'm in a ryan adams mood and can't get enough of his music. wait a minute..... i am always in a ra mood. as i am listening to his kcrw show online it reminded me that i never posted after seeing him live. tickets were won at his listening party from origami vinyl for an intimate show in the masonic lodge at hollywood forever cemetery. no recording or clicking were allowed or you would be shot down by his lovely friends who played camera police. ok, after i clicked his guitar on stage i was caught. i slipped my phone away and captured every moment.
ps ps this show was truly amazingly beautiful. the setting made it surreal. never will i forget this show! it is locked into the cavity of my mind.
ps ps i hope mr. adams that you enjoy the t~shirts that i made for you!

ps when you look up at the moon and stars above your head just know that they are the same stars that i love too. when you feel the wind gently brush upon your chin know that it was just the kiss that i blew to you.

death by suicide

ps i saw darkness under the bridge today during my morning hike. i cried at the sight of a guy who jumped to his death from the suicide bridge. no one was around. i hear the police and the coroners laugh. what sickness do they have to laugh? as i was praying for this man and his family the officer told me to leave. he said, "this is not a lookie loo show," in a rather mean voice. no words came from my mouth as i slowly walked away weeping.
it's been haunting me all day. i hope anyone reading this never sees what i saw. i can see him clearly in my head laying on his side half bent in an almost fetal like position in the water of the ravine. his eyes wide open with a blank stare. blood coming from the eye that was facing the cement. the way he was laying there while the water was streaming around his body was somehow peaceful. he is at peace now.
i am numb.
ps ps please say a prayer for his soul.
