A Shine to it- Laura Stevenson And The Cans
I sold my blood to a hospital but it wasn’t very much blood so they didn’t give me much money they didn’t give me much.
I thought that you might like this because it’s got a shine to it I know you like shiny things so I will try to buy it up for you and drive to you.
I posed unclothed for an artist in his home but i couldn’t hold it long enough and he didn’t like my body much so he didn’t give me much. I thought that you might like this because it’s got a shine to it I know you like shiny things so I will try to buy it up for you and drive.
August spent your basement apartment i fell thought your floor cradle and all i fell through your floor and i can’t spill through your fists until my hands are solid white My lungs are buckled tight together My sliding drawl is like a cannonball Ill slur myself to sleep outside your door
Theres a ghost way up the northeast coast and it’ll break your heart harder than i could ever and that ghost claws at my arms it make me do wrong it make me do wrong and it pushes you down and rattles the walls and it’s sorry it’s sorry it’s sorry so even though its cold and it breaks apart your bones it’s floating urgently outside your door

ill be on my feet if you want me ill be on my feet if you need ill be on my feet if you want me to be
352. Beets Untitled-Laura Stevenson And The Cans My lazy shape is armed in dirty clothes. My arms are worn and scarred with beauty marks so they can tell my lazy shape apart from other shapes with hearts and human parts. Beware, where I am is where the channels run bare, the canals run bare and there’s much to be scared of that didn’t wash up ‘til everything dried up. Keep away from me, I am full of terrible things. But if you love the terrible, then please be near to me.

This is Laura Stevenson and the Cans’ cover of I Felt Your Shape by The Microphones. Nothing ever so perfect (besides the original) has ever been or ever will be heard. I cannot wait to put this on a mix.
This is a video I just found of Laura Stevenson playing “The Move” in my hospital room after hearing about my fight with Leukemia and being bummed about not being able to go see her play live. We spent a good couple hours as well just talking and It’s really one of the nicest memories I have throughout this whole journey.
Laura still keeps in touch and leaves encouraging messages on my facebook statuses and such.
