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
