"Crazy People" as written by Michelle Branch and Jessica Harp....
Only crazy people
Fall in love with me
They come from all over
To be with me
Bank robbers and killers
Drunks and drug dealers
Only crazy people
Fall in love with me

He came from Carolina
On a west-bound freight train
He didn't have no ticket
But he got here the same
He left me a reminder
With nine months to go
That's why I killed his wife
And wrecked up his home

He fled Mississippi
With me at his side
A trunk full of money
And no place to hide
Well he loved his whiskey
And his fist loved my face
So I buried that man
And they won't find a trace

    General CommentWhen you're from a chaotic lifestyle, you might drive yourself nuts trying to figure out why only dykes and gang-bangers love you. There's nothing wrong with you, you are not defective, you're just an outlaw by nature. Whatev. No biggie.

    -Pretty self explainatory

    "He Came from Carolina

    He didn't have no ticket
    but he got here the same
    He left a reminder

    -Explaining where he came from. Then she says how he knocked her up, so she killed his wife to be with him

    "He Fled Mississippi
    With me at his side
    A Trunk full of money
    and no place to hide
    Well he loved his whiskey
    and his fists loved my face
    So I buried that man
    And they won't find a trace "
    -He liked to beat her sp she got rid of him

    General CommentThis is a very dark dark song but I think it's a joke at the same time. Just black humour I suppose...

    General CommentAt the D.C. show last week...Michelle said that's it's pretty much how they've both dated some pretty messed up guys in the past. She says she and Jess were chatting about it, and she sang the first line as a joke--and then they went from there. It's lighthearted...but kind of nutso.

    About the whole murder thing: "Some people might call this evidence--we just call it a song." - Michelle

    General CommentInside joke. It has some very good lyrics. My favourite is: "Well he loved his whiskey, and his fist loved my face." It's better than saying "he was a drunk who abused me," lol.
