You're walking around in a haze
After gambling with your life for hours
Just like you did yesterday
And the years before when we tried to put your chains on

Beautiful You,
You got caught up in a web of trying
Something fun and new
That no longer keeps you high and flying
You gotta change
Change the road you have been taking
Take a look at your face
Your life is broke and your hands are shaking
Beautiful you changed so long ago now we don't know ya
And you know its true
I'll keep open the doors that you slam behind ya
If looks could kill
You woulda killed me a thousand times over
But your deadly aim
Was to turn away and not look over your shoulder

You gotta change
Change the road you have been taking
Take a look at your face
Your life is broke and your hands are shaking

Beautiful you
You're the only one left in the trenches
Beautiful you
lay down your weapons and surrender

Cos you've gotta change
Change the road you have been taking
Take a look at your face
Your life is broke and your hands are shaking

In basement rooms where the
Coffee's bad there mingles a people
who talk about it too
All having shared in the common peril

Beautiful you
Lay down your weapons and surrender
Beautiful you
Lay down your weapons and surrender

Definitely don't miss seeing this band live, I've been following for them for years, they are real, they are tight, they love their art and each other (sisters) and they are basically beautiful people inside and out. Last time Josh the guitarist even let my 3 year-old do some finger picking when he came and mingled with the crowd in between sets.
 
Just to clarify, I too have seen them more than a few times and would recommend that you not miss the opportunity to see them live.

Thank you, thank you, thank you RP! I had never heard the Waifs until tonight sitting in isolation waiting out COVID 19. I now feel wholer! Gives me hope when I discover beautiful things that I did not know about.  BGW
 

I've found that even though their songs are often sad, they cheer me up too. Funny that. Sweet and sour I guess....

Fur? Try wool. And that's irrelevant. Those horns though, tell the story.

Does seem to be heart felt intimate messages to one another from the rooms....
One little problem--pretty certain this is a ram! Beautiful ram doesn't work:)  DaveInVA wrote:

I'm no expert. There is a lot of fur. Could this in fact be a beautiful ram?

I believe that might be a brilliant piece of music from the time it was made. I love it.

Waaayyyyy overstated

The new RP  statistic
Plays (last 30 days): 3
exposes wankers  like you

30 days = 43200 minutes
divide by 4 (minutes per song) = 10800 songs per month
Thus, 3 plays out of 10800 = 0.028%

You are grating on me - more than a bit

Congratulations on the first overplayed comment for this track Veev. Someone is bound to say it by the first time I hear a track on RP.

HAHAHA!!! Is this supposed to be an Australian joke? Actually, the sheep to human numbers in both NZ and AU have dropped over the last decade; only 7:1 in NZ and 3:1 in AU. 

*EDIT* As of 6/21/17 (Summer's first day in the northern hemisphere) I'm rating this track an 8.  I think I've gone from 6 to 7 already, and well I just find that every time I hear this one it's stuck in my head for awhile.   LONG LIVE RP!

*2nd Edit* 9 rating now.  Love how delicate the lead vocal is, esp. near the end of the track. The message or theme of the song is classic and well done. My wife even liked it a lot, which by itself counts for a +1 LLRP!!

 
As Jason Mraz would say, "It's all about the wordplay."

Beautiful me. {#Cheesygrin}
Nice.  My ears approve.  Not that the Waifs know that, of course.  Happy New Year, everyone xxx
Nice! I thought this might be something new from KT Tunstall for a sec... Reminds me of Lucinda Williams, Jesse Sykes, Margo T, too.
Pretty odd responses to this one.

I like them & the song.

That's a damn fine call
I thought the Indigo Girls had mellowed out a little. Surprise!

The singer sounds a little like Marianne Faithful. Cool song. Now that I hear it not playing over Purple Rain.
or maybe conflicts between the regular and beta players…
it must be a mash, a bad one at that!
technical difficuties this morning
Purple Waifs. Purple Waifs.
Hey, these guys sound a lot like Prince.  {#Ask}
Somebody crossed the streams. I hate it when that happens.
