Dessa - Ride Lyrics




Baby, put that out
I don't let nobody smoke in here
You sounded woke on the telephone
But faded you don't say much
I think I wanna go somewhere
I don't like the quiet, that's
Why you got invited
Ah fuck it, my ride's coming

Streetlights on wet pavement
City shining twice
Lemme out kitty corner
From The Paradise
They used to know me here
Haven't used that name in years
Been a woman too long
For that song now
I been lost and I found out
High supply just drives your cost down
They don't want you involved
Just want you around
Walking in
I gotta step over
A pretty thing learning her
Head on her own shoulder
I don't ask
If she's alright
Cuz I think she'd lie tonight
That her ride's coming

Bad news on the television
Two-for-ones on everything
Don't want no one talking to me
I just watch the flat screen
Closed captions pass
Looks like gender's over
Race came back
Faith is a hammer with a
Book for a handle
And people in power can edit the past
Can put your hands behind your back
To read you someone else's rights
First the sirens then the lights
That looks like your ride
Your ride's coming

    "faith is a hammer with a book as a handle"
    "can put your hands behind your back to read you someone else's rights"
    "leaning her head on her own shoulder."
    Okay. Yep. Masterpiece. That's it, no further discussion. Seriously, how am I supposed to have any future in writing and poetry if Dessa is just gonna perfect it and wipe the rest of us off the map? Well... I'd need to be on the map to be wiped off, but you get my point.

    "been a woman too long for that song" 😭

  9. deuge

  10. fillibustercat

    I feel like maybe someone else in the world understands

    Meagen Rainville

    fillibustercat It's amazing how she does that, huh? If it wasn't for Dessa Darling, I wouldn't be here admiring her new album. I truly hope she knows how inspirational she truly is. Much love and gratitude.

    Scott Strand

    fillibustercat The gift of art, be it music, books, movies, photography, at its best is to inspire. We are all unique yet part of humanity. United yet separate. Do your best to help others AND YOURSELF to live with a positive attitude and purpose.

    Brian Hay

    chimed.

    Hell yes. This is how you start an album.

    Hannah M

    This isn't how you start an album. This is how you start a movement.
