I wanna go to the sun
Hold my life like I've never done
But it's just the devil in me
The devil that's calling as I come undone

  • this is perfect
  • she's unique. fuck journalists.
  • incredible piece of work
  • Good song
  • The first time I ever heard her, it was this song. Will forever be her "signature" song for me.
  • Great song
  • The sky is getting dark tonight, darker than the fear that's gonna pull us apart
  • Breathtaking for sure
  • Every time, I wait with my breath in my throat for that bit near the end where her voice jumps an octave on "Desire, desire!" Amazing. (2) FUCKING TRUE
  • See her live as a support to Nick Cave's Grinderman. Sounds more like Siouxsie that day! I like it!, although .. PJ Harvey is all around. And I love PJ Harvey!!! So all of this music is worth to hear!!!!
