Hassles The music might be simple, however the groove is great but...it's Susanna's vocal delivery that sold me on this - just love it.

WHEN YOU ARE HUNGRY And then when you are hungry then you will come around And they will cook whatever in their house is there to be found but they don’t know when you’re full, you go without making a sound and when the wind is blowing then you’ll be dropping by and they will light the oven and let you come inside but they don’t know that you hit the road as soon as you’re warm and dry J O H N N Y, why are you so cruel to all the girls from Whatapity don’t you hear them cry and then when you need money you come to see your dames and they will call you honey and you’ll call them the same but they don’t know that you call them so ’cause you forgot their names J O H N N Y, why are you so cruel to all the girls from Whatapity don’t you hear them cry

KING OF THE SUN You’re the king of the sun you decide what’s right and left undone golden rays, you burn you shine you wear a crown and down you draw a line you’re the king but you’re broken under your snakeskin robe you’re a star up in the sky but it’s a curse the universe is cold so cold and every boy and girl knows your name how will they cry when you leave them all alone

Cracked 01:49
CRACKED I am standing here facing you and got my chest all cracked you ran me over three steps forward and then five steps back I know that you can do better way better than you did you wrote me grown up letters and now you’re acting like a kid honey, my baby sweetheart, you are still my baby-blue but the way you’re acting really does make me tired of you I know that you can do better way better than you did you wrote me grown up letters and now you’re acting like a kid

Schoolgirl 03:19
SCHOOLGIRL I'll dress like a schoolgirl and I’ll drink tea I'll dress like a vamp and I will drink whisky but only you know me true I'll dress like a good girl and I'll behave, too dress like a bad one and I'll know what to do but only you know me true how could I be so careless and be so cold how can I be so young and acting so old like a story told I'll be laughing and drinking I'll meet my friends and they might be asking how I do alone, again and I might be saying saying I'm fine but there ain't no use of pretending you are always on my mind I used to say, there's flowers and cowboys and that is the way that I like it to be now, you were my cowboy and I became a flower when you looked at me how could I be so careless and be so cold how can I be so young and acting so old like a story told so, if I'm a schoolgirl why don't I learn and if I'm that vamp why won't I burn when I'm the cutter why do I feel and if I'm a wound when will I heal in time

SHOOTING BUTTERFLIES My child, my beauty forever, your face in the sun and in the nighttime in the stars and silver haze you are so beautiful too light too light so, I’m shooting butterflies for you, my child i'm shooting them one by one, for they got us flying too high gloomy you look at me and only tears reveal your face this sad is so very beautiful you have understood you have seen and felt so, I’m shooting butterflies for you, my child i'm shooting them one by one, for they got us flying too high

Yellow Moon 02:55
YELLOW MOON Yellow moon hanging low tell my love I had to go to the shore over indigo to where no man can lead me no man can follow yellow moon tell him that he is so sweet but times are bad close my eyes and leave this world oh too soon tell him not to cry yellow moon

Jacket 03:18
JACKET „Sorry“ you say just the way you through away a smoked cigarette and then you look as if you wanna go so „sorry“ you say just the way you throw away a smoked cigarette so, I guess I better let you go I let you take your jacket and lace up your shoes and listen to your „bye-bye-babe- I’ve-got-the-walking-blues“ you care you say bluntly in my face you lie, I gotta face that it’s too late for you’re looking so already gone and I am looking at your facade with all I kept i gotta keep it it’s too late yea, you are looking so already gone I let you take your jacket and lace up your shoes and listen to your „bye-bye-babe- I’ve-got-the-walking-blues“

Pigeon 03:41
PIGEON Under hungry eyes walks the pigeon down her way and she wears her feathers so white, white, white on pieces walks the pigeon all down her way and she wears her feet so bare, bare, bare fall, my pigeon you shall not fly come on, my pigeon, you are getting swallowed by this night by hundreds walk the wolves to feathers head the wolves wolf machines iron bites inside you (don´t know yet) run, newcomer iron eyes gonna find you they (don´t show yet) fall, my pigeon you shall not fly come on, my pigeon, you are getting swallowed by this night through the night walks the pigeon all down her way and she glows in the dark so white, white, white through the night flies the pigeon all down her way and she let´s her view float wide, wide, wide
9.
UNDER THE MORNING SUN When I saw what you are able to do under the morning sun I could hear the seagulls laughing down at me and the damage done and I don’t blame them, no I rather think they’re right ’cause seeing what a fool I’ve been you can only laugh or cry as I watch you hurting me to show me just how wrong I’ve been while God is having his breakfast your shabbiness is to be seen and the stars are well-off hiding behind that grey daylight ´cause seeing what you are doing there ain’t much of a pleasant sight and if you ever catch me crying and if you ever catch me blue it is for me and that I fell for a nothing-good-doer like you
10.
The Reminder 02:03

Duck and cover the reminder is back I don't know how he did it, but he's been keeping track of you so, the pathfinder he's making his rounds you might have thought you're free, but he's got you bound go! Duck and cover the reminder is back I don't know how he did it, but he's been keeping track of you so, the pathfinder pathfinder is back and once this trapper has got you he the dog and you the cat baby

about

"Susanna Berivan has got the blues. But really. And if we now speak in categories such as deep and real we are absolutely serious about it and venture far out into post-meta territory. Susanna Berivan is from Berlin but she lives in Leipzig. On stage she stands alone, in black, with a weathered acoustic guitar, frowning her Frida-Kahlo-eyebrows, singing, hurting and trumpeting into the long reverb. Lamenting, bewitching, bedazzling. Melancholic is for softies, this is the real deal. Of course her sound is full of references. Blues, as stated before, Americana, alternative country, folk and soul. 50s and 60s, Camp and Tarantino. Maybe in a previous life Susanna Berivan went on a road trip through the southern states of America, in her ’64 Thunderbird, working in a remote diner, reading dime novels, watching the bird migrate to Mexico. We don’t know that. But the retrospective, the stylistic and the contextual aspects, which often render this type of music interesting today, surrender to her performance, her charisma and most importantly: her voice. Susanna Berivan’s blues is really just blue. And it will get you (...)." TORSTRASSEN FESTIVAL 2014
