From the album Civilian
Jenn Wasner’s mournful voices and lyrics capture loneliness in a way that feels real and familiar.
I am nothing without pretend
I know my faults
Can’t live with them
I am nothing without a man
I know my thoughts
But I can’t hide them
Andy Stack’s galloping drum beat breaks in and fits together with Jenn’s guitar.
I don’t need another friend
When most of them
I can barely keep up with them
Perfectly able to hold my own hand
But I still can’t kiss my own neck
They add a small bit of keyboard to the mix before ending it a very unmelodic guitar solo and that drum beat.
Simply put, this is an all time great song.
