Holy Moses

Jann Arden is one of my favourite artists. I have every single one of her albums. So many of her songs touch me in very personal ways. The fact that she’s Canadian is just icing on the cake. I’ve had the pleasure of seeing in concert twice now, and both times were absolutely incredible. Not only is she an excellent singer and songwriter, the woman is also funny as hell.

If you’re not familiar with the works of Jann Arden, I recommend that you check her out. In the meantime, here is a live acoustic performance of one my favourite songs of hers. This song gives me goosebumps…

I don’t know how I’ll get by without you
I’ll be wrecked, I’ll be ruined
I don’t know how I’ll get past tomorrow
I bet I’ll be broken open wide
I don’t think I told you, I feel terrible
I’ve been sitting in this chair since Sunday
In the same clothes with unwashed hair
Nothing moving, I feel unusual

Holy Moses, I’ve been hanging over
Holy Moses, I’ve been burned like a cigarette
Oh Jehovah, I’ve been thrown a bone and
I cannot remember when I was
happy

Can you feel my heart beating like a thunder ball
Can you hear every sound I’m making
In the darkness Without breathing
Nothing moving I feel peculiar
I don’t know, I can’t tell
If I am …. myself
If I was a good girl would I be here?
If I was so stupid
then what was what you did?
You were not a good thing for me

Holy Moses, I’ve been hanging over
Holy Moses, I’ve been burned like a cigarette
Oh Jehovah, I’ve been thrown a bone and
I cannot remember when I was
happy

happy, happy

I don’t know, I can’t tell
If I am … myself
I don’t know, I can’t tell
If I am … myself
I don’t know, I can’t tell
If I am … myself
