about

I adore Everything Happens to Me. It’s my theme song and I approached it as a late night tipsy rant. I wanted it to be sloppy and self-aware. This girl is tough and is surprised to find herself with a broken heart. She never thought it would happen to her and that little tag at the end is so vulnerable. But she’s only going to stay in that place for a moment before her tough exterior returns – any and all Bette Davis characters.

lyrics

I make a date for golf, and you can bet your life it rains.
I try to give a party, and the guy upstairs complains.
I guess I'll go through life, just catching colds and missing trains.
Everything happens to me.
I never miss a thing. I've had the measles and the mumps.
And every time I play an ace, my partner always trumps.
I guess I'm just a fool, who never looks before he jumps.
Everything happens to me.
At first, my heart thought you could break this jinx for me.
That love would turn the trick to end despair.
But now I just can't fool this head that thinks for me.
I've mortgaged all my castles in the air.
I've telegraphed and phoned and sent an air mail special too.
Your answer was goodbye and there was even postage due.
I fell in love just once, and then it had to be with you.
Everything happens to me.
