Catapult - Counting Crows cover

All of the sudden she disappears
just yesterday she was here
tell me if I am sleeping
someone should be with me here
(cause I don't
wanna be alone)

I wanna be the knife that cuts into my hand
and I wanna be scattered from here in this catapult
What a big baby won't somebody
save me please
You won't find nobody home

all of these quiet
battered voices
wait for the hunger to come
we got little revolvers and
stupid choices
and no one to say when we're done
(Well I don't wanna
bring you down)

I wanna be the light that burns out your eyes
`cause I know there's little things about me
that would sing in the silence of so much rejection
in every connection I make
I can't find nobody home
I wanna be the last thing you hear when you're falling asleep....

There's something magical about Counting Crows songs. The words rarly make sense when they are all put together to form a song... The song is a blur. More of a feeling than a thought.
I find though, that when you take each line as an individual song, the meaning is crystal clear and very often, I relate.

Today as I drove, I sang this at the top of my voice, and although I don't understand what the whole song means, every word I sang made sense.

I can't find Counting Crows doing a clear version, but this girl sings it well.
