Live in studio, 2007. See further below for lyrics.
Note that both on this live performance and with the official recorded version, her vocals are more subdued, raw or perhaps under-sung than typical for her. Much of the Uh Huh Her album this song is drawn from had more of an intentionally un-polished feel to it. She has always tended to favor raw vs. too polished but maybe more so true for this song and this album, in general. This performance of the song is in keeping with that.
Oh love, you were a sickly child And how the wind knocked you down Put on your spurs, swagger around In the desperate kingdom of love
Holy water cannot help you now Your mysterious eyes cannot help you Selling your reason will not bring you through The desperate kingdom of love
There's another who looks from behind your eyes I learn from you how to hide From the desperate kingdom of love
At the end of this burning world You'll stand proud, face upheld And I'll follow you, into Heaven or Hell And I'll become, as a girl In the desperate kingdom of love
