This is a cover of a song by The Nields, who I haven't listened to much lately and that's too bad, because they are awesome.

I did several bold things, besides playing a song I previously hadn't really listened to in years! I transcribed the chords myself, since the Internet does not apparently know what they are, and I still don't either but I hope this is pretty faithful. I left off the last verse because you don't need to hear me singing for that long. And I made a lyrical change. I am normally pretty uncomfortable about deviating from authorial intent, but I figured I would try it and see how it felt.

The song itself is about having people who inspire you even if you only know them through their art. I remember hearing this for the first time and being delightfully shocked that someone who was writing songs now would write a song mentioning being inspired by Ani DiFranco, because at the time, I was inspired by Ani DiFranco. I have other inspirations now, who brought me back to this feeling that Nerissa Nields captured.
