I stayed up late last night to watch Saturday Night Live and the Texas Music Scene. Those are 2 of the only shows I’ll turn on the TV to watch anymore. The Texas Music Scene always has really wonderful musicians on there and it’s a great way to learn about new music (the other way is to listen to KPFT on the radio).
I saw this band on the show last night and really enjoyed listening to their song. They played one called “Lint Head Gal”. Phoebe was fantastic on the violin/fiddle (I’ve been wanting to learn how to play lately). She explained how the song came to be written, about a friend’s grandmother who used to work in the textile mills back in the day.
This song is a little more mellow, but it still shows off her beautiful voice and nice work on the fiddle. The rest of the band is great too. I definitely plan to find more of their music.
I like to pick at my wounds until the bleed
Take in the moon on a bended knee
Stare at the sky in the morning light
Pink and Blue are the color of God’s eyes
There’s a bell that rings when the school day ends
That’s not the bell that rings for me
Sitting here till I make amends
Sitting here till I am free
Only then will it ring for me
The morning air so damp the dew
I know you can feel it to
Burning off this childish pain
Help me see the endless change
Running again and again I stray
From what do I run away
Searching for what is underneath
Knowing here I am complete
I like to pick at my wounds until the bleed…
