Because I Love A Challenge

I re-learned basic guitar after fifteen years AND collaborated with my Domestic Partner, all on the same project!

This is a B-side by Philly shoegaze band Nothing. In my view it’s about the failed attempt to hide or modify one’s true self in an intimate relationship. I hope its creators will forgive my couple of lyrical tweaks.

Dirty White Glove

(Voice 1)
Hope beneath me
Won't retrieve me
There isn't anyone
That'll find me out
‘Cept you babe
‘Cept you baby

I don't believe
Believe in anything
I can't see
I can't see through

And nothing comes apart
And nothing comes apart, like you
You're flammable,
The fire moves with you

(Voice 2)
Stoke the fevers
Smoke and mirrors
I can be anyone
Your everything
I can please
I can please you

Believe in me
I'll cherish anything
I can't burn
I can't burn through

And nothing comes apart
And nothing comes apart
And nothing comes apart, like you
You're flammable,
The fire moves with you

(Both)
And nothing comes apart
And nothing comes apart
And nothing comes apart, like you
It’s admirable,
You're flammable,
The fire moves with you
