Matutine Remix

Song from album "Operator"



How long before I
can learn to cooperate my body aches?
Hello, Operator:
I need to sterilize
I need to eliminate these body pains

And I can't stand
When I feel

Hello, my name is--
I forgot, but yesterday I knew
Cuz today I'm someone new
I feel much better this way
I'm surviving day to day anew
Every day is something new

And I don't feel
And I don't think

So get away from me
I don't want you here
I don't want you near me now
I don't want you round
I don't need you now
Wait until I'm down
Then you'll bring me down
Then you'll bring me down

And then I wake up
How did I get so very far?
I feel very, very far
And for the first time in months
I remember what my name is--
I don't like it

And I can't stand
When I can't sing

Belle-Skinner New York, New York

Belle-Skinner is an indie-folk artist from upstate NY who writes about weird dreams, mermaids, werewolves, deserted landscapes, and ephemeral creatures.
Kind of like a cross between Joni, Sufjan, Francoise Hardy, Lana Del Rey, and Angel Olsen - she mixes mid-century pop with fingerstyle contemporary folk, and then makes you cry.
