"I Think That I Would Die" as written by Kat Bjelland, Courtney M. Love and Eric Erlandson....
He's stupid
I'm smarting
He's stupid
I'm smarting

I want my baby
Where is the baby?
I want my baby
Who took my baby?

Rose white, rose red
Rose up in my head
Rose white, rose red

Yeah yeah
I want some
Yeah yeah
There is none

I want my baby
Where is the baby?
I want my baby
There is a baby

There is no milk
There is no milk
There is no milk
There is no milk

Rose white, rose red
Rose up in my head
Rose white, rose red

Aww
Aww
She lost all her innocence
Gave it to an abscess
She lost all her innocence
She said, I am not a feminist

It's not yours fuck you

There is no milk
There is no milk
There is no milk
There is no milk
There is no milk

    General CommentThis song was written when she Courtney got Frances took away from her because her and Kurt where using heroin.I think the part "i want some, yeah yeah, there is none" is talking about wanting more drugs, but she knows that if she wants her baby back she cant have any.
    Courtz is so cool!

    General CommentThis song was not written about Frances Bean being taken away from Courtney. It was co-written by Kat Bjelland of Babes In Toyland, back in the late 80's before CLove even met Kurt. Even look in the booklet of 'Live Through This'

    General CommentNobody can scream ‘FUCK YOU’ with the same powerful effect as Courtney. That’s the best part of the song and its perfectly fitting as well. Its already been said - the songs obviously about Frances being taken away from Courtney when the authorities were questioning her capabilities as a mother after the drug abuse accusations etc. so the song encapsulates the rage she felt at that point mixed with the effect of hormones after giving birth. Any girl knows hormones can bring out the worst anger ever but with Courtney it’s a thousand times worse. But at least she created some fuckin amazing music from her rage.

    General Commentget over it ppl courtney didnt kill kurt maybe u guyz should read heavier than heaven even krist said that kurt got her on drugs face it ppl he's gone sad but true hes gone and just for the record kurt literally had suicide genes in his family.......so family history of suicide, junkie who hates fame yet no one thinks its possible that he did kill himself esp. since some of HIS friends went to his house to check on him and they seen sum one in the house the green house i guess read the book and maybe stupid assholes will quit blaming courtney for his death just becuz a woman is loud and loves fame doesnt mean she would kill the father of her child

    General CommentPeople really need to stop hating on Courtney. Kurt didn't write her music. She had an album already out before they were even together. If he did, all of her songs would sound exactly the same, you know how Nirvana's does. Everyone wants to put her down for using meanwhile Kurt did the same exact thing. He was worse, actually. It kills me that people cut up on her constantly when in reality Kurt was way worse.

    This song is proof of that. Courtney wanted her baby back. She wanted to quit so she could get Frances back. But Kurt kept using. He wanted nothing but to use all the time.

    She was the one to take care of him. So if it wasn't for Courtney, Kurt could have been dead before he ended up killing himself.

    If people didn't hate on Courtney Love as much as they do, I wouldn't hate Kurt.

    They say she's psychotic and needs help, but thats now. Back in the 90's even or if she was at her fame 40 years ago, her behavior would be normal. It's disgusting how watered down music is nowadays.

    General CommentI dont know about that VelveteenDoll, Courtney's biography indicated that this song dated at the time of Frances being taken away. You would have to agree with that judging by the lyrics. If it was written in the 80s, Courtney must be psychic! Also, I doubt Kat Bjelland wrote this as it sounds very 'Courtney' - talking about roses, milk, etc - Courtney mentions that a lot in Live Through This songs...

    General Commenti used to think (from reading the lyrics to Malibu, even though i love that song) that courtney couldn't write. but i was so wrong! i started listening to moer of her stuff, and she's actually a pretty good writer when she wants to be. i really like this song and i agree with slash_away_the_pain's opinion.

    General CommentI guess the punk family really did sell. Every one likes to think everything done between the two bands was about kurt and courtney
