Continuing with my new Monday theme, Juliana Hatfield’s “My Sister”…
What I have always loved about this song, is that my youngest sister is the one that got me into Juliana’s music, through this song, which I think is kind of cool. Although, it does make me wonder what that sister really felt about our other sister, since for at least a year, she CONSTANTLY played this song day and night…
My sister… my sister… my sister.
I hate my sister, shes such a bitch.
She acts as if she doesnt even know that I exist.
But I would do anything to let her know I care.
But I am only talking to myself cos she isnt there.
My sister, I love my sister, shes the best.
Shes cooler than any other girl that I have ever met.
She had the greatest band, she had the greatest guy.
Shes good at everything and doesnt even try.
Shes got a wall around her nobody can climb.
She lets her ladder down for those who really shine.
I tried to scale it, but to me shes blind.
So I lit a firecracker, went off in my eye.
I miss my sister, whyd she go ?
Shes the one who would have taken me
To my first all-ages show.
It was the violent femmes and the del fuegos,
Before they had a record out. before they went gold,
And started to grow.
I miss my sister. I miss my sister.
I miss my sister. I really miss her.
