Troubled Waters
Cat Power Lyrics


I must be
One of the devil's daughters
They look at me with scorn
I'll never hear their horn
Sometimes it's like chains
Sometimes I hang my head in shame
When people see me
They scandalize my name I'm going down
To the devil's water
I'm gonna drown

In that troubled water
It's coming round my soul
It's way beyond control
I must be one
I must be one
I must be

One of the devil's daughters
They look at me with scorn
I'll never hear their horn
Sometimes it's like
Being in chains
Sometimes I hang my head in shame
When people see me
They scandalize my name
I'm going down
To the devil's water
I'm gonna drown

In that troubled water
It's coming round my soul
It's way beyond control
I must be one
I must be one
I must be

I must be
One of the devil's daughters
They look at me with scorn
I'll never hear their horn

Sometimes
It's like chains
Sometimes I hang my head
In shame
When people see me 
They scandalize my name

I'm going down
To the devil's water
I'm gonna drown
In that troubled water
It's coming 'round my soul
It's way beyond control
I must be one
I must be one

I must be
One of the devil's daughters
They look at me with scorn
I'll never hear their horn

Sometimes
It's like chains
Sometimes I hang my head
In shame
When people see me 
They scandalize my name

I'm going down
To the devil's water
I'm gonna drown
In that troubled water
It's coming 'round my soul
It's way beyond control
I must be one
I must be one
I must be

Not a very musicy person but when I heard this I just stopped dead. Her voice is so so beautiful, so powerful, chilling. Simply stunning. Wow!

rare for me to find a song/artist that i like so quickly - great voice and great feel to this track - vibe for me is up there with Ben Howard and Be Good Tanyas, not taking anything away from this song though - completely original and beautiful

Cat's voice played over the credits of the movie 'Perfect Stranger' from 2007 which starred Halle Berry, Bruce Willis and Giovanni Ribisi - a creepy thriller but with some good tunes in the soundtrack. Also like Cat's song Metal Heart.

"The Honourable Woman"---Beautiful track. Glad to find this artist.
