Lyrics
First she says she loves me
Then she says she hates me
She can't make her mind cause
she's lost somewhere deep in time, she
Can't let go of the past
With her hands in her pockets
She looks depressed she's
got a smile on her face though
Cause she won't let anyone know

It's hard for her to let go cause
She feels like she's not the prettiest
Girl on her street
As she lights up a room
With a small lamp on a little table
She sits all alone in a corner with a
Tears in her eyes, as she says her
Goodbyes to her friends and her family
It's all about her lack of gravity

She says first you have to
Zig then Zag
Cause she can't comprehend life
Living from a shopping bag
She tells all her friends
It's really not that bad
She stands all alone with a smile on her face
And her hands in her pocket
She's got a gold chain around her neck with a picture of me
In a little gold locket
She smokes a cigarette
With her crossed leg kicking in the air, and
She's already told me that she
Doesn't really like anyone there, She
Wanted to be somewhere else
and if I felt like leaving she wouldn't care
She says first you have to Zig then Zag
And tell your friends it's not that bad

She says we can all come in
But then she says we all have to go
She says you have to Zig then Zag, then
Turn around and let it all go
She says she wished her life was
Just a Reality show
At least at the end of the show
She could just go home
And let it all go
First you Zig then Zag
That's what she said

Nicely done
as if you understand women. And, you probably do. Love this:
She says she wished her life was
Just a Reality show
At least at the end of the show
She could just go home
And let it all go

Thanks.

interesting
pretty good though for me I kept thinking there was going to be a verse that kind of burst out of no where and really threw me off not off in a bad way but in a good way like a line the might have repeated two or more times but hell better then what I could do anyday.

Nice tune
Thank you for sharing the nice track you got here.
I think it could be a little better if it had a bridge.It's gong on and on till the last part, which is a little different.But don't mind, that's just my oppinion.Nicely done.I like the harmonies you got in the last part.
And the rythm guitar has a nice fuzzy sound.

didn't expect this
It's a little "hot" in the mix... but it comes off cool overall. If you get a chance to remix it try to watch the spikes. White Stripes is one of the few "newer" bands I really get into. I've been getting really stoked and inspired again, at long last. Not a bad act to follow.

yes I agree with you chronic. I am getting better at my mixing on my newer stuff, I just haven't posted any of it yet. This is a 3+ year old song. I am posting all my older stuff to get it up and out of the way. Thanks for listening and complimenting and commenting.

Lyrics Remind Me
of something the Black Crows would have come up with.(I love the Crows). Killer track guy. I thought as well, any minuite this thing is going to fly away with some wild guitar solo, but I am not let down it worked very well without it. Your vocals are nuts. someone said "hot mix" I am not listening on my regular set up,but I think I smell a little smoke. Anyhow, Great,great track.
Be well, Russ

Like what I hear
I actually dig the guitar. Love the boom boom.

It sounds like a lost Kinks tune. Crunching good.

Your vocal delivery makes this tune. Bravo

Thanks for listening Lava. Always love to hear from you. Interesting comment about the Kinks. I used to listen to them so maybe there is something in that.

Lyrics
Love the lyrics, but what do I know about women either?

I love that drum too. Yes the edge could be taken off the fuzz but it's edgier to fit the theme.

I like the way it just ends.

Great listen!
