The trouble with lyrics

22 Aug

We’ve been over my new obsession with ZZ Ward.

But in listening to her on repeat…

Well, let’s just say my imagined conversation with her goes thusly:

Penny: Hey, ZZ! I really love your sound. It’s so eclectic and visceral.

ZZ Ward: Thanks, Penny! It’s just what I feel, you know?

Penny: I know! We feel it, too! But, ZZ?

ZZ: …?

Penny: In “‘Till the Casket Drops”…

ZZ: I’m with you.

Penny: Well, I don’t really know how to say this, but…

ZZ: I can take whatever you’ve got to dish, Pen. I’m chill like that. (But don’t be surprised if a song titled “You Better Unsay That” shows up on my next album.)

Penny: Ok. Well. In the song, you sing:

You asked me how long I’d stay by your side,
So I answered with just one reply:
‘Til the casket drops.
‘Til my dying day.
‘Til my heartbeat stops.
‘Til my legs just break.

ZZ: Pretty sweet lyrics, right?

Penny: Uhh, yea. But. ZZ. That’s four replies.

ZZ: Literalist.

**Note: I’m sure that ZZ Ward is, in real life, much MUCH cooler than she is in my imagination because, well, her lyrics really are great.
