Ruin
Cat Power Lyrics


I've seen gypsies who made it all the way
And kept going, kept rolling with nowhere to go
Nowhere to go.

As far as I've seen, from the bush
In the wilderness, to every known city
I've been to Saudi Arabia, dug up Calcutta
So I went to Mozambique, Istanbul, Rio, Rome
Argentina, Chile, Mexico, Taiwan, Great Britain
Belfast, to the desert, Spain
Some little bitty island in the middle of the Ṗacific
All the way back home, to my town
To my town
Bitching, complaining, yet some people who ain't got shit to eat
Bitching, moaning, so many people you know what they got

What are we doing?
We're sitting on a ruin
What are we doing?
We're sitting on a ruin

As far as I've seen, from the bush
In the wilderness, to every known city
I've been to Saudi Arabia, dug up Calcutta
So I went to Mozambique, Istanbul, Rio, Rome
Argentina, Chile, Mexico, Taiwan, Great Britain
Belfast, to the desert, Spain
Some little bitty island in the middle of the Ṗacific
All the way back home, to my town
To my town
Bitching, complaining, yet some people who ain't got shit to eat
Bitching, moaning, so many people you know what they got

What are we doing?
We're sitting on a ruin
What are we doing?
We're sitting on a ruin

What are we doing?
We're sitting on a ruin
What are we doing?
We're sitting on a ruin

Sad how sometimes you got no escape in life, suddenly you find a song that can solve it all. We don't need people who support us we need motivation like this song. Loving it!!

Can't get enough of this. So unbelievably fierce. "Bitches! Complainers! Some people ain't got shit to eat." Love it.

Jessica Chalker Cantlon

I recently discovered Chan, and I must say her music makes me so happy. I started my journey with her music with "Sun"

MY GAD , I finally find it again after 7 years.
( It's hard to find you on internet when "cat" is in your name 😭😭)

I think this is going to be an awesome year. Cat Power, Fiona Apple, The Smashing Pumpkins, all of them releasing a new album!
