Coloring Club Plus — 5/1/19

Here we go with another cut from Mitski’s latest.  Be the Cowboy is the fifth studio album by Japanese-American indie rock musician Mitski, released on August 17, 2018 … In a statement, Mitski said she experimented in narrative and fiction for the album, and said she was inspired by “the image of someone alone on a stage, singing solo with a single spotlight trained on them in an otherwise dark room.”… At Metacritic, which assigns a normalized rating out of 100 to reviews from mainstream publications, Be the Cowboy received an average score of 87, based on 30 reviews, indicating “universal acclaim”

There’s something haunting about Mitski’s music, like she’s wandering around inside my head.  The video is pretty mesmerizing.

You’re growing tired of me
You love me so hard and I still can’t sleep
You’re growing tired of me
And all the things I don’t talk about

Sorry, I don’t want your touch
It’s not that I don’t want you
Sorry, I can’t take your touch

It’s just that I fell in love with a war
And nobody told me it ended
And it left a pearl in my hand
And I roll it around
Every night, just to watch it glow
Every night, baby, that’s where I go

Sorry, I don’t want your touch
It’s not that I don’t want you
Sorry, I can’t take your touch

There’s a hole that you fill
You fill, you fill

But it’s just that I fell in love with a war
And nobody told me it ended
And it left a pearl in my hand
And I roll it around
Every night, just to watch it glow
Every night, baby, that’s where I go
Just to watch it glow

Songwriters: Mitsuki Laycock
