I Am Without Shoes



I'm serious
I want her
I have to be sure
I admit that I'd hate to die
Please help me
I am without shoes
I would give you shelter
I cursed myself and they laughed
Please
I am without shoes
I would have to be sure
Yeah I don't think I need to stare
Please help me
I am without shoes
I would give you shelter
I cursed myself and they laughed
Please
I am without shoes
I would have to be sure
Yeah I don't think I need to stare
Please

Details:
I Am Without Shoes, found on the bonus disc of The Complete Stone Roses compilation, is a one and a half minute segment of She Bangs The Drums reversed, without drums, with the guitars turned down and Reni's backing vocals enhanced. The song's title possibly originates from 'Moses and the Burning Bush' (Exodus 3: 1 - 22). The angel of the Lord appeared to Moses in flames of fire from within a bush, on Horeb, the mountain of God. Though the bush was on fire, it did not burn up, and Moses approached to see why:
