Women Music March #18 — Mitski

Anyone who has read my blog for awhile knows I love Mitski (thanks again, Hans, for introducing me to her music!) So far I’ve only covered songs from her last 3 (of 5) albums. Today I went looking for one I hadn’t covered so far and found treasure. Someone made a playlist of every song she has done, in chronological order. Yes! I went with the first song on the first album, Lush, called “Abbey.” Lush was self-released by Mitski in 2012, while studying at Purchase College’s Conservatory of Music. Not only did I find the playlist, I found she has a new song out since her last album was released. I was going to pick that one, but it’s a little dark. Called “Cop Car” it is from the soundtrack of the horror movie, “The Turning.”

Mitski Miyawaki (born Mitsuki Frances Laycock; September 27, 1990) is a Japanese-American singer-songwriter.

 

 

I am hungry
I have been hungry
I was born hungry
What do I need?

I am something
I have been something
I was born something
What could I be?

There is a light that I can see
But only, it seems, when there’s darkness in me
There is a dream that I sometimes see
That only appears in the dark of sleep

I am waiting
I have been waiting
I was born waiting
I was born waiting for that something
Just one something

I was born something
I was born

There is a light, I feel it in me
But only, it seems, when the dark surrounds me
There is a dream and it sleeps in me

Keeps me awake in the night
Crying sets me free
And I wake every night
Crying sets me free
Songwriters: Mitsuki Laycock

  1. Simple music, but very enjoyable. I am glad that I ate lunch before listening to this so it did not make me hungry.
