ninety-five: “shatter” by liz phair.

hudson river. september 2012.

Back when Liz Phair hadn’t sold out to commercialism, her albums were great.

I know that I don’t always realize
How sleazy it is messing with these guys
But something about just being with you
Slapped me right in the face, nearly broke me in two
It’s a mark I’ve taken heart
And I know I will carry it with me for a long, long time

I don’t know if I could drive a car
Fast enough to get to where you are
Or wild enough not to miss the boat completely
Honey, I’m thinking maybe
You know, just maybe

I don’t know if I could fly a plane
Well enough to tail spin out your name
Or high enough to lose control completely
Honey, I’m thinking maybe
You know, just maybe
Maybe

And it’s true: “I don’t know if I could fly a plane well enough to tail spin out your name.”
