some catch flies lyrics – kristin hersh

when he stares, it’s like he’s splitting hairs
i’m a wreck when he’s here, i swear
fill a gl*ss up with shiny tacks
i’m feeling sharp

i am numb, i am numb, i am numb, i

and when he drools it’s like he’s spitting jewel
i’m alone when he’s here, i am
what a dumb-*ss thing to say
plus i’m not ashamed
n*body’s here

i am clean, i am clean, i am clean, i

he’s my god, tangle till we’re old
he’s my distraction, and how
simple gold and no one has to know
it’s hectic as h*ll

i play dumb, i play dumb, i play dumb, i

a sideways look, a lighter in the dark
you make it good, you do
some catch flies, some kill them till they die
i just stare

i do love, i do love, i do love you
i do love, i do love, i do love you.
