A note on Marissa Nadler’s Soundcloud says “This is a Richard and Linda Thompson song. Angel Olsen and I have been working on some cover songs which I’m very excited about. This one is recorded Lo-fi but clean and clear. Stay tuned for more in the future.. and check out both her EP and her new record and go to her shows that are happening right now.”
All good advice and the cover is simply stunning. Have a listen.
If I was a butterfly, live for a day,
I could be free just blowing away
This cruel country has driven me down
Teased me and lied, teased me and lied
I’ve only sad stories to tell to this town
My dreams have withered and died
