Malibu (Hole cover)

from 10 Covers - Volume II by Richard Turgeon



Think what you want about Courtney Love, I've always thought this song was a classic—and it felt like the right time to cover it. It's sad, it's spiritual, and I thought it sounded finished without the usual drums and bass. I hope it helps calm your nerves on Election Day. Peace and love from California.


Crash and burn
All the stars explode tonight
How'd you get so desperate?
How'd you stay alive?

Help me, please
Burn the sorrow from your eyes
Oh, come on be alive again
Don't lay down and die!

Hey, hey
You know what to do
Oh baby drive away
from Malibu

Get well soon
Please don't go any higher
How are you so burnt
when you're barely on fire?

Cry to the angels
I'm gonna rescue yoU
I'm gonna set you free tonight, baby
Pour over me

Hey, hey
We're all watching you
Oh, baby, fly away
to Malibu
Cry to the angels
And let them swallow you
Go and part the sea, yeah
in Malibu

And the sun goes down
I watch you slip away
And the sun goes down
I walk into the waves

And the sun goes down
I watch you slip away
And I would

And I knew
Love would tear you apart
Oh, and I knew
The darkest secret of your heart

Hey, hey
I'm gonna follow you
Oh baby fly away, yeah
to Malibu

Oceans of angels
Oceans of stars
Down by the sea
is where you drown your scars

I can't be near you
The light just radiates
I can't be near you
The light just radiates
