She
Black Lyrics


I run at things too fast,
Only give them half a chance-
Say what you want, what you will,
But it's true.

I'm far too lazy,
I do enough but nothing more.
I like to drink, I like to play-
Do you too?
You never know
Just what the blues are like
Until you take
A taste of the sweet life.

I found an angel,
A reason to smile-
A best friend.
Until I knew her I never knew

What a woman can do-
Did what she want, did what she will-
Is it true?
She holds her own, she holds mine too,

We do a marry dance.
Do what we want, do what we will-
Do you too?
I brush her hair

And it crackles with the static-
I never meant to kiss her,
It was purely automatic.
She's my angel,

She's my Betty Blue,
She's my best friend.

Her fingers drumming time, drumming time,
Drumming on my heating heart.
I got it good, I've got it bad-
It's true, uh-huh.

You never know
Just what the blues are like
Until you take
A taste of the sweet life.

I found an angel,
A reason to smile-
A best friend.
She's gone,

She's out of sight,
She's my love me tender,
My P. G. fright,
My lady day in the dead of night,

My best friend.
She's my best friend.

My uncle died of a Heroin overdose, and I was the last person to ever talk to him.
He'd been trying to get clean for months, but something always dragged him back into it.
What's really ironic, in the worst way, is that when he died, it was around the time when everything in his life seemed to actually be going somewhere good. He'd repaired his relationship with much of his family, including my aunt who I was living with at the time, and he and his father were closer, too. He even had a girlfriend, and things were just getting serious between them, and as far as I knew their relationship was gold. He was a super positive influence in my life (I knew very little about his drug addiction at the time, and whenever anyone mentioned it to me, they always talked about it in past tense. I had no idea he was still addicted and trying to get sober.) He was getting healthy, eating healthy, exercising. He took me to the gym with him sometimes and it was just... great.
Until the day he and I were at home, alone. He was watching me, kinda babysitting I guess. I don't remember where everyone else was at, honestly that whole day is pretty much a blur for me. I know that I was watching Netflix and I got a nosebleed. I think I had a cold, and I get nosebleeds easily when I'm sick.
He freaked out so bad, acting like I'd had a heart attack or something, googling the best ways to take care of a nosebleed like he'd never seen one before. It was so sweet, I vividly remember laughing after I stopped bleeding, just from how amazed I was that a grown man would react so strongly to a nosebleed. To me it was no big deal, but it was like his world was ending.
After I stopped bleeding, I started watching my show again, and he told me he had to go take a shower.
My aunt came home what must have been 30 minutes after that, with my little cousin, as well. He was still in the shower.
It was two hours after he got in the shower when my aunt ended up having to break into the bathroom. His body was leaning against the door, blocking her from being able to open it all the way. I took my cousin down the block so she wouldn't see anything. I was old enough to know she didn't need to see whatever was waiting in that bathroom, and she was young enough not to know better.
He was confirmed brain dead when they took him to the hospital. His brain had been oxygen deprived for so long that there was no chance of saving him at that point.
For a long time I blamed myself for his death, because I should have realized it was weird that he was in the shower for so long. When I stopped blaming myself, I blamed him. Why did he need that fix in the first place?
It's been a few years now, and I've forgiven us both. I was young, and innocent. How was I supposed to know what was going on in there? He was still dealing with pain from the past, fighting demons I didn't even know about, and I don't think he needs to be blamed for that.

She never mentions the word addiction
In certain company.
Yes, she'll tell you she's an orphan
After you meet her family.
She paints her eyes as black as night now.
Pulls those shades down tight.
Yeah, she gives me a smile when the pain comes.
The pain gonna make everything alright.
Says she talks to angels.
They call her out by her name.
Oh yeah, she talks to angels.
Says they call her out by her name.
She keeps a lock of hair in her pocket.
She wears a cross around her neck.
Yes the hair is from a little boy,
And the cross from someone she has not met, well, not yet
Says she talks to angels.
Says they all know her name.
Oh yeah, she talks to angels.
Says they call her out by her name.
She don't know no lover,
None that I ever seen.
Yeah, to her that ain't nothing
But to me it means, means everything.
She paints her eyes as black as night now.
Pulls those shades down tight.
Oh yeah there's a smile when the pain comes.
Pain's gonna make everything alright, alright yeah
Says she talks to angels.
Says they call her out by her name.
Oh yeah, angels
Call her out by her name
Oh angel,
They call her out by her name
Oh she talks to angels,
They call her out, yeah yeah
Call her out,
Don't you know that they call her out by her name

"She Talks To Angels"
She never mentions the word "addiction"
In certain company
Yes, she'll tell you she's an orphan
After you meet her family
She paints her eyes as black as night now
Pulls those shades down tight
Yeah, she gives a smile when the pain come
The pain gonna make everything alright
Says she talks to angels
They call her out by her name
Oh, yeah, she talks to angels
Says they call her out by her name
She keeps a lock of hair in her pocket
She wears a cross around her neck
Yes, the hair is from a little boy
And the cross is someone she has not met
Not yet
Says she talks to angels
Says they all know her name
Oh, yeah, she talks to angels
Says they call her out by her name
She don't know no lover
None that I ever seen
Yeah, to her that ain't nothin'
But to me, yeah, me
Means everything
She paints her eyes as black as night now
She pulls those shades down tight
Oh, yeah, there's a smile when the pain comes
The pain gonna make everything alright
Alright, yeah, heah
She talks to angels
Says they call her out by her name
Oh, yeah, heah, angels
Call her out by her name
Oh, ooh, oh, oh, angels
They call her out by her name
Oh, oh, oh, she talks to angels
They call her out
Yeah, ee, eah, eah, eah, eah
Call her out
Don't you know that they
Call her out by her name?


DAE ~ Wish our last time together was a little more spectacular, a little longer, but that is okay. If I could give you the world, I would do it in a minute, but it still would not be enough.

Gotta admit he's got one amazingly soulful voice. Very well done.

David Reynolds

@Roy Frye they did no bad ones. What amazes me is Rob Tyner could keep a straight face with that big assed afro. There were brothers that couldnt grow a cake that thick. They were considered dorks in school. Never judge a book by the cover. Id have killed to been at a show when they rocked out in front of everyone who ever gave them shit in school. What i really dug was when Kramer started doing more vocals. What a wild man on the guitar but his vocals were great. Hence the black crows comparison.
