Cat Power: Colors and the Kids.

Moon Pix

This song is for when even my art form fails me.

It must be the colors and the kids that keep me alive
‘Cause the music is boring me to death
It must just be the colors and the kids that keep me alive
‘Cause I wanna go right away to a January night

I built a shack with an old friend, he was someone I could learn from
Someone I could become
Will you meet me down on a sandy beach
We can roll up our jeans so the tide won’t get us below the knees

Yellow hair you are a funny bear
Yellow hair you are such a funny bear
Slender fingers would hold me, slender limbs would hold me
And you could say my name like you knew my name

I could stay here
Become someone different
I could stay here

Become someone better

It’s so hard to go in the city ’cause you wanna say hello to everybody
It’s so hard to go into the city
‘Cause you wanna say hey I love you to everybody
When we were teenagers we wanted to be the sky
Now all we wanna do is go to red places and try to stay outta hell

It must be the colors and the kids that keep me alive
‘Cause the music is boring me to death
It must just be the colors and it must just be the kids
That keep me alive on this January night

Yellow hair you are a funny bear
Yellow hair you are such a funny bear

  1. Education is the best asset that you would give to your children because it will never depart from them. It is therefore very important to help them with all their learning levels.

  2. It does look nice at the beginning, just like hacking twitter accounts, but it gets rather bad at the end. At least, with hacked twitter accounts, one can do something useful with it.
