This Woman's Work

I should be crying, but I just can't let it show
I should be hoping, but I can't stop thinking

All the things we should've said,
That we never said
All the things we should've done,
But we never did
And all the things that you needed from me
And all the things that you wanted for me
And all the things I should've done,
But I didn't.

Oh, darling, make it go
make it go away


The original was by Kate Bush. The cover, by Greg Laswell, who just released his latest EP consisting of five covers, aptly titled Covers. The other artists he interprets include Echo & the Bunnymen (Killing Moon), Morphine (In Spite of Me), Mazzy Star (Take Everything), and Kristin Hersh (Your Ghost).

Wish I had audio...who do you like better? Laswell or Bush? :)

They're like both sides of the relationship, neither is better. Bush sounds more vulnerable, shattered. Laswell sounds more resigned to his fate.
