Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love’s daughter Frances Bean Cobain has shown in recent months that she intends to follow in the hallowed footsteps of her parents and enter the music world, she has previously shared gorgeous a capella covers of Jimmy Eat World’s ‘The Middle’ and Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” to her Instagram page. Last night brings another video performance, and this time she finally treated her fans to an original song.
Cobain claimed the untitled song as her own and shared some of its lyrics: “I think I saw you when I was small/ I think I found you/ A penny for your good thoughts/ I think I found you/Jesus hangs in your place on the cross/ All these hinges become unscrewed/ Heaven knows it was a cage on earth.” Another verse not featured in the video hears Cobain singing, “Stable sable sold her heart/ No one asks her why she hides in a basket in her house in a box/ Find a fiend who reigns supreme in May/ Fast enough for blooming buds to lay their egg.’”
She captioned the song/video by writing, “A) there are so many memeable moments in this clip B) I’m SUPER restless because i can’t play guitar with long nails so I’m just sitting in my room alone singin to mah self C) not having a TV in my house is the best decision because I’m forced to occupy my time with things that feed my brain & soul instead of wasting energy on thinking about not having to think.”
Today marks 24 years since her Father took his own life and what better way of remembering Kurt then listening to the talent that he left behind, check out the video below.
