'A Girl Like Me'


We're moving toward spring, Nowruz, the real beginning of the year :)
I can feel the energy building up.

You know this year, 2018, is the year of women. It already started. We're fighting for generations and generations. This battle therefore cannot be lost. And once we've won, we'll allow what men have been depriving this world for so long: peace.

"Your lover, your daughter"...
"It took a girl like me
To bring you to your knees"....


Desert Sessions - 'A Girl Like Me' - with PJ Harvey






Hot skin in the night
In the hour when the animals are born
And crimes of passion are committed
Take me to the morning light
Take me to your leader

It took a girl like me
To bring you to your knees
You took a girl like me

You are my heart
You are my only heart
But this cold air is killing me
And as we make love
The silence, the silence
Trying to find the thread
Of failed romance

It took a girl like me
To bring you to your knees
You take a girl like me

I swing my face towards the sky
You put your hand over my mouth
Oh, take me, take me
To the frozen north
Skating, falling
Falling down, down, down
Into icy water

I'll be what you want me to be
To bring you to your knees
Your lover, your daughter
We'll move in slow motion
Falling down, down, down
Into icy water
You took a girl like me

I might never leave this room again
Shut myself inside the old photographs
The faded light of the young girl
Patterns, shadows on the walls
Painted ladies
They look a lot like me

It took a girl like me
To bring you to your knees
You took a girl like me
