Make It Go Away (Radiation Song)

This is not a happy song. As the name implies, its about Crow's recent battle with cancer. The intimate song has a very raw energy. Taken from her new album 'Detours'. Beautiful.


"I stare into some great abyss
And calculate the things I'd miss
If I could only make some sense of this...

I crawl into my circumstance
Lay on the table, begging for another chance
But I was a good girl
I can't understand how to make it go away
Make it go away

Sometimes I wonder which hurts worst
The thougt of dying or reliving every hurt
Was love the illness and disease the cure?"
