Yo La Tengo - The Story of Yo La Tango
from “I’m Not Afraid of You and I Will Beat Your Ass” (2006)
teethvsteeth asked: Derrick!!! That new song you wrote is super good dude! Is it in standard? Tabs? Come to brazil?
I just wrote a song then recorded and performed it poorly.
"The apple core inside your purse is starting to stink
Now you go to work tell me is it worse than you thought it could be?
I don’t know where you’ve been, how can you breathe?
We parked your car by a phone booth and I wore out my knees
Then you cut all your hair off
and I took all my clothes off
We were just like the sea
'cause I am the water, you are the land
and I watched your father destroy your hands
but your dreams were harder, he didn’t understand
that I came here to fuck you and hold your hand”
