not push it away.
It has to be equal, and I find that very difficult.

You feel the music needs something but you don't know what.

trying.
Every time you try another angle.
And sometimes that's frustrating, especially if you
don't come up with something for three days.
- Beth Gibbons

actually.
- Beth Gibbons
