"Tigress" as written by and Jason Molina....
It's difficult not to worry about what happens next
Certain looks sort out confused looks
And certain looks sport confused looks
And I watched us talking in the mirror
And you put on that look
That says this little star wishes she weren't single

It is the eye that catches me a man protesting his worth
It is the year that catches you putting the shake on your words
You are alert as a tigress at a common table with her fate
You can almost taste it

We'll be gone be morning or be together by then
We'll be gone be morning or be together by then
And I believe every woman has made up her mind to win

    General Commenti'm going to take a shot in the dark.

    "certain looks sort out confused looks
    and certain looks sport confused looks "
    *i think this is a pretty straight-forward way of saying that one person is sort of self-concious and unsure of himself, and the other is confident and wants to eleviate those feelings.

    "and I watched us talking in the mirror"
    *it's like he (the narrator) was doing something really unlike himself by talking to this woman. the mirror reference suggests that it was opposite of what he usually would have done. this situation probably surprises him.

    "and you put on that look
    that says this little star wishes she weren't single"
    *everyone knows what a vulverable, seductive look is like.

    "it is the eye that catches me a man protesting his worth"
    *it ties back to the insecurities suggested in the "mirror" line. it shows that this woman was able to see something special in the man, who doesn't thnk too highly of himself.

    "it is the year that catches you putting the shake on your words"
    *it seems as though the woman is worried about her age, trying to recapture her youth by seeking out a younger male? that theory also ties in the next few lines about the alert tigress.

    beautiful song.
