Living Proof
.Cat Power Lyrics


It's not your face
Or the color of your hair
Or the sound of your voice, my dear
That's got me dragged in here

It's the ice in the seam, the scheme of you
You're supposed to have the answer
You're supposed to have living proof

Yes, I was jealous
Because you are sworn
How could you come undone to a word so strong?
My beating heart the anchor to a ship so warm
You're supposed to have the answer
You're supposed to have living proof
Well, I am your answer
I am living

Will you terrorize this
With your perfect lips?
I watch you eat and feed this mess
To the running wind
But I know you from before and after until then
Do you have your answer?
Do you have living proof?
Well, I am your answer
I am living

You're supposed to have an answer
You're supposed to have living proof
Well, do you have your answer?
Do you have your answer?
Well, I am your answer
I am living

Last time I saw you, you were on stage
Your hair was wild, your eyes were red
And you were in a rage
You were swinging your guitar around.
Cause they wanted to hear that sound
But you didn't want to play.
And I don't blame you.

I don't blame you.

Been around the world, in many situations
Been inside many heads in different positions
But you never wanted them that way.
What a cruel price you thought that you had to pay.
And that for all that shit on stage.

But it never made sense to them anyway,
Could you imagine if when they turned their backs
They were only scratching their heads.
Cause you simply deserve the best.
And I don't blame you

They said you were the best,
But then they were only kids
Then you would recall the deadly houses you grew up in
Just because they knew your name,
Doesn't mean they know from where you came
What a sad trick you thought that you had to play.
But I don't blame you

They never owned it
And you never owed it to them anyway.

I don't blame you.

Every half year or so I come back to check the new comments on this video, and aside for some of the courtney crap, it's always surprising and uplifting too see how many people it has touched. So thanks for all the kind words people!

Of all those who wrote songs in tribute to Kurt, this is my favourite.

chan marsall has admitted in the past few years that it is indeed about him....love this vid!

Jacques Nomdefamille

nice to see that people pick up on that. that was indeed the intention of the ending; celebrate his life, don't dwell on his death

ScratchCard Mania

KC isn’t in my era and i never listened to him but this makes me very sad knowing his pain took his life. RIP

Thomas Chaves

Cat Power openly stated that she wrote this song for Kurt Cobain. Also, you've done a terrific job cutting the old footage together. -Thomas

Mandy Lynn

Well that brought tears to my eyes...I was a teenager as well when I found out Kurt had died and I had cried for days........

BombJapan

Chan has said this is about Kurt. She loved him, like we all do.
