lyrics

I think that five or maybe six
years have come
since you first challenged me*
inside a mostly empty auditorium
the same one where you'd ask
if I caught who did catch
the shrapnel from your telecaster
and I think before a word escapes
about my two heartbreaks in silverlake
where only you could be
the one who reminded me of
limitless expanding possibilities
and in the car my mother said to me
I know who you should marry

You're my champion
You catch me when I'm falling down
I never said so 'til just now
but you're
my champion

I was hysterical laughing
as they grabbed for shards and broken strings
All I could say was
You are Thurston Moore:
You'll look fourteen until you're fifty-four
and you said
We should all be so lucky
but I'm already so lucky 'cause you're

You're my champion
You catch me when i'm falling down
I never thanked you 'til just now
but you're
my champion

On Sixth and West Twentieth
I pressed my face into your chest
You don't know it yet, but I wished you
so much better than the best
And the time you saw me at that bar
out on Los Feliz Boulevard
when I said greatness
I meant the greatest
'cause you're

You're my champion
You catch me when I'm falling down
I never said so 'til just now
but you're
my champion

So I guess that brings us finally
to the answer for which you've been waiting
I think
I think it was those girls from Snohomish
and Rosa and Stacy

about

Cristina Bautista Seattle, Washington

Some people pull themselves together so quietly no one realizes there was any falling apart to begin with.

I'm certainly not about to do that.
