This is where Eddi Reader entered my life. This album. She’s stayed ever since.
I whistled a tune called ‘lazy’ and I tiptoed a very tight line
All of the time walking backwards, all of the time I was blind
And the only voice I was hearing was yours inside my head
Saying “Get yourself back to the kitchen, girl, one true move and you’re dead”
But I found out it’s all or nothing
That’s me in a nutshell.
Give me ALL – you get the same.
Give me NOTHING – ditto.
I do NOT do small, superfluous, half-hearted, easy, instant gratification.
