Waxahatchee - Catfish Lyrics




Crave, desolate, you dive in, we follow along
I contrive you with whiskey and sam cooke songs
And we lay on our backs, soaking wet
Below a static tv set
Conversation flows, counting shooting stars and catfish
But I'll never make a wish
Barefoot, parking lot
Getting high in portland, or
We echo 17 and we glue it back and poke fun
And it gets real quiet, I don't care
Darting with moonshine, truth or dare
I say just what I'm thinking and secondguess instantly
And you laugh at me
We stick to our slow motion memory
Its 1 in the morning and 90 degrees
And though now it is hovering darkly over me
It'll look just like heaven when I get up and leave
You're a ghost and I can't breathe

    Best song she has written yet

  3. J Lansdale

    This is the best song she ever wrote out of her whole catalog except for Under a rock.

  4. J Lansdale

    Fucking stellar. One of my favorite songs right now. Viva blanco diablo!!!

  5. Tristan Tolhurst

    Thank you so much for including the lyrics to this song. It's one of those ones that just needs to be a part of your life. It makes me thing of seeing a disturbing series of home movies combined with nightmare images seen through an abandoned camp sites's security camera CCTV feed.

    the weather is not good most of the time in nightvale, but this was a rare and beautiful storm that cought my attention.

  7. Unslaad Krosis
