Kimberly Lyrics - Patti Smith

Review The Song (2)



The wall is high, the black barn,
The babe in my arms in her swaddling clothes
And I know soon that the sky will split
And the planets will shift,
Balls of jade will drop and existence will stop.
Little sister, the sky is falling, I don't mind, I don't mind.
Little sister, the fates are calling on you.
Ah, here I stand again in this old 'lectric whirlwind,
The sea rushes up my knees like flame
And I feel like just some misplaced Joan Of Arc
And the cause is you lookin' up at me.
Oh baby, I remember when you were born,
It was dawn and the storm settled in my belly
And I rolled in the grass and I spit out the gas
And I lit a match and the void went flash
And the sky split and the planets hit,
sponsored links
Balls of jade dropped and existence stopped, stopped, stop, stop.
Little sister, the sky is falling, I don't mind, I don't mind.
Little sister, the fates are calling on you.

I was goin' crazy, so crazy I knew I could break through with you,
So with one hand I rocked you and with one heart I reached for you.
Ah, I knew your youth was for the takin', fire on a mental plane,
So I ran through the fields as the bats with their baby vein faces
Burst from the barn and flames in a violent violet sky,
And I fell on my knees and pressed you against me.
Your soul was like a network of spittle,
Like glass balls movin' in like cold streams of logic,
And I prayed as the lightning attacked
That something will make it go crack, something will make it go crack,
Something will make it go crack, something will make it go crack.

The palm trees fall into the sea,
It doesn't matter much to me
As long as you're safe, Kimberly.
And I can gaze deep
Into your starry eyes, baby, looking deep in your eyes, baby,
Looking deep in your eyes, baby, looking deep in your eyes, baby,
Into your starry eyes, oh.

Oh, in your starry eyes, baby,
Looking deep in your eyes, baby, looking deep in your eyes, baby, oh.

Oh, looking deep in your eyes, baby,
Into your starry eyes, baby, looking deep in your eyes, baby

Kimberly - Patti Smith at her finest | Reviewer: Jeff | 4/3/10

I am a fan of Patti and her entire repertoire of music. I will go most anywhere Patti wants me to go muscially. But I single out Kimberly as my favorite among her many amazing pieces of artistic and poetic offerings. Written about her sister Kimberly, it combines everything there is to love about music in general and her music particularly; a catchy pop hook, a showcase of Patti's unique and rather haunting voice; beautiful poetry; a poignant homage to the sister that she clearly adores. Perfection. I can listen to this song a thousand times (and have) and never tire of all of the subtleties contained within. "As long as you're safe Kimberly ..."

Kimberly is a classic among classics. Heartbreaking, hopefu, humane, and catchy as a pop song! God bless Patti Smith!
