GENIUS!

I posted this, but apparently it didn't go through.

Anyway, BTE play at the 9:30 Club in DC ALL THE TIME. Seriously, like two or three times a year. They're the first band I ever saw there, when I was interning in 2000.

Wow. I can't believe there are other people here who like BTE! I adore this band. Sort of a guilty pleasure. Pax, they di put out a new album last year called "Closer." It was decent, had some catchy songs but in my opinion wasn't nearly as good as either "Friction, Baby" or "How Does Your Garden Grow" which is my favorite of theirs. I saw them a couple of years ago in a small club called `Canes here in SD. It was seriously the most fun I've had a t a show. Well, besides Radiohead but thats different. BTE were funny, had lots of crowd participation and played a ton of songs!

[q]SOUTHERN GURL

There she is.
White light,
descending like the color of rain.
July or fall,
one thing will never change.
Down and out,
you found this city has you on your back.
You long for her to take you away.
And I...

CHORUS:
I want a Southern Girl, I need a Southern Girl.
Well, I want a Southern Girl.
Hey, yes, I want a Southern Girl and I need a Southern Girl.
And I want a Southern Girl.

Scent of pine drifting by.
Her hand traces lazy on your neck.
Sunlight through the trees
recalls a better time.
Kids and dogs running by,
She smiles as she drinks ice tea,
Retire to the room, it's easy to see.

CHORUS:
I want a Southern Girl, I need a Southern Girl.
Well, I want a Southern Girl.
Hey, yes, I want a Southern Girl and I need a Southern Girl.
And I want a Southern Girl.

Take back the night, claim your desire.
Run 'til you crawl.
In the morning you will find her there.

CHORUS:
I want a Southern Girl, I need a Southern Girl.
Well, I want a Southern Girl.
Hey, yes, I want a Southern Girl and I need a Southern Girl.
And I want a Southern Girl.

I want a Southern Girl [/q]

i'm your southern girl!

[q]DESPERATELY WANTING

Past the road to your house
That you never called home
Where they turned out your lights
Though they say you'll never know

I remember running through the wet grass
And failing a step behind
Both of us never tiring
Desperately wanting

When they pumped out your guts
And filled you full of those pills
You were never quite right
Deserving all the chills
They say the worst is over
Kicked it over and ran
Then they ask what went wrong
When they turn you on again
They turn you on again.

Chorus:
Kick them right in the face
Make them wish they weren't born
And if they bring up your name
Well they'll say you won the war.
Baby burst in the world
Never given a chance
Then they ask what went wrong
When you never had it right

Oh the letters have dropped off
Though they say you got them all
I finally figured out some things you'll never know.
Take back your life and let me inside
We'll find the door if you care to anymore.

I remember running through the wet grass
and falling a step behind
Both of us never tiring
Desperately Wanting[/q]
