All or Nothing : The Patron Saints of Imperfection

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.

:o)
