Typo on lyrics
« on: April 24, 2012, 06:16:28 AM »

Dunno if this is a good place to mention this (or if anyone really cares - it sounds a bit nerdy now I'm doing it!)

On the download page for "The Truth"  at http://music.amandapalmer.net/track/do-you-swear-to-tell-the-truth-the-whole-truth-and-nothing-but-the-truth-so-help-your-black-ass

It's got "now i have friends and i'm not such a loser
but i go to bars all alone and i sit there"

... should be "...but i go to bars all the time and i sit there"

I don't think the world will end if it stays like that; but if someone techy tweaks it right, I'd feel I'd made the world a microscopically better place today.  :)

Yeah there are multiple, though slight, variations, so that was the confusion with the lyrics used on bandcamp. Since those lyrics accompany the download where it has that small variation, the lyrics with the download should reflect the version they are posted with.

i have so many memories of looking up amanda's lyrics and trying to figure out the discrepancies ("wow, is she really saying that?"). the ever-changing-ness of the songs has always been one of the most compelling things about her music for me.
