let me out, it's hell when you're around



undoubtedly one of the most cathartic performances i have seen in awhile, this song builds into an unbearable climax that explodes with anger and pain and desire. it's unbelievable.

please watch it and listen to the lyrics.

and god, i love lisa hannigan.


Rootless Tree / Damien Rice

"what i want from you
is empty your head
they say be true,
don't stain your bed
we do what we need to be free
and this leans on me
like a rootless tree
what i want from us
is empty our minds
we fake a fuss
and fracture the times
we go blind
when we've needed to see
and this leans on me
like a rootless...
so fuck you
and all we've been through
i said leave it
it's nothing to you
and if you hate me
then hate me so good that you can let me out
let me out of this hell when you're around

what i want from this
is learn to let go
no not of you
of all that's been told
killers reinvent and believe
and this leans on me
like a rootless...
so fuck you
and all we've been through
i said leave it
it's nothing to you
and if you hate me
then hate me so good that you can let me out
let me out of this hell when you're around
let me out...
and fuck you, fuck you, i love you
and all we've been through
i said leave it
it's nothing to you
and if you hate me
then hate me so good that you can let me out
let me out...
it's hell when you're around"
