  • 'Buy Disc' Show Me Where the Edge Is


words and music by Kristen Cothron & Chris Holcombe
produced by Ben Strano as 'The Sonic Fedora'


Smile and remember, laugh and forget it
I’ll indulge it then dismiss
It still keeps me frozen, locked in a moment
What kind of door have I opened?

Hello doesn’t fit, so I search for an exit.
I slip I tripped and I fell
Just this side of fearless and left of stupid
I’ve got an appetite for what you sell
So, show where the edge is
Show where the edge is

Cinematic distractions, outlines and fragments
draw me into this dark action
That one event, held me so convinced
That I’d excuse my common sense


There’s no one to frame here
Mistakes are in my name, dear
And no one near me would expect this
So, show me where the edge is...

Could I have resisted, saying what I meant
the crime lies with intent
Oh, I’m hanging on, you’re pushing me off
I’m already fallen before you can say `ready or not’

- BabySue

"Tougher than Fiona Apple, edgier than Norah Jones, Cothron combines cabaret and indie rock as well as anyone since Elvis Costello." - The Memphis Playbook
