I Sing / Music

I Sing – Amanda Palmer and the Grand Theft Orchestra “Missed Me”

It’s 3:47 am

Insomnia is alive and well this Sunday morning. So I am listening to music while my mind tries to slow down enough.
As I have written so many times,I absolutely ADORE Amanda Palmer. She is so talented and has such a distinct voice….and her songwriting is also very special. She reminds me quite a bit of Barbara Manning but a whole lot darker and just slightly more twisted.
But it also has a lot of power and even more heart. The Dresden Doll’s “Sing” is one of my favorite songs and always moves me to tears because of how much music can express what the voice can not.

This clip is NSFW so be forewarned.

 

Missed Me
Amanda Palmer

missed me missed me now you’ve got to kiss me
if you kiss me mister i might tell my sister
if i tell her mister she might tell my mother and my
mother, mister, just might tell my father and my father
mister he won’t be too happy and he’ll have his lawyer
come up from the city and arrest you mister
so i wouldnt miss me if you get me, mister, see?

missed me missed me now you’ve got to kiss me
if you kiss me mister you must think im pretty
if you think so mister you must want to fuck me
if you fuck me mister it must mean you love me
if you love me mister you would never leave me
it’s as simple as can be!

missed me missed me now you’ve got to kiss me
if you miss me mister why do you keep leaving
if you trick me mister i will make you suffer
and they’ll get you mister put you in the slammer and forget
you mister then i think you’ll miss me won’t you miss me
won’t you miss me

missed me missed me now you’ve got to kiss me
if you kiss me mister take responsibility
i’m fragile mister just like any girl would be
and so misunderstood (so treat me delicately!)

missed me missed me now you’ve gone and done it
hope you’re happy in the county penitentiary
it serves you right for kissing little girls but i will visit if you miss me
do you miss me? MISS ME??

do you miss me
will you kiss me through the window?
do you MISS ME? MISS ME??!!
will they ever let you go???
i miss my mister so!!!!
