"Great Expectations" as written by and Cat Power Chan Marshall....
I am like powder
I am like relaxation
I am the snow
I am the snow
I am the snow

I dig in this ocean
And I try to fill it with gold
Fill it to the top X3
Do you look for hope in other people's eyes
Well that may be your worst redemption
Do you feed and clothe yourself
Well that may be your best defense

I am from the moon X3
So they say X2

Facing, confronting, branding each other
We were made through one another

Great expectations X2
So they say X3

I am the snow X2
I happen to be the snow

    General Commentthis song has some missing lyrics after the "I am the snow" part.
    i've heard of cat power and the acclaim from the critics, but never really got into her until i heard this song. it's song original. it's so manic depressive and dark and distant. i love this. and cat power, now, too.
