The VLA’s "When I Am Through With You" — for Download!

I’ve ragged on MySpace before, but I will give it credit where it’s due: Were it not for MySpace, I never would’ve been able to contact the very accommodating Jason Rabe, lead singer for the VLA, to get the complete lyrics to their song, “When I Am Through With You.” Since the song is currently best-known as the theme song for Damages (which I love), people from all over are always landing on my blog looking for the lyrics (which I posted several months ago).

Lately I’ve also gotten some e-mails from people asking if I know where they can download the song (I’m not sure how well MySpace’s download function works), so I once again contacted Jason. Lo and behold, he sent me an MP3. He told me to enjoy blogging it, sharing it, posting it. So here it is. Enjoy listening to and sharing the song. And be sure to swing by the VLA’s MySpace page to say thanks.

UPDATED: I re-added the MP3 below since it appears to have been lost when I switched from Blogger to WordPress.

When I Am Through With YouThe VLA

I made a point of using the song “When I Am Through With You” by The VLA for my Song Lyric of the Day yesterday since I was writing about summer TV, and it’s the theme song for Damages on FX. After a long Google search, I kept coming up empty and could only find a couple of lines. So what to do? Go directly to the source: I sent an email via MySpace to the band, and they were awesome enough to reply with the lyrics. So here they are, exactly as they were sent to me:

“When I am Through With You.”
Lyrics by Jason Rabe
Music by Jason Rabe and Ravi Subramanian

Little lamb, smile!

When I am through with you
There won’t be anything left

Oh come back now where did you go?
no need to cower don’t know
if i can even turn your light on
hello daisy, is that you hiding in the grass?
I’ve come to pluck you, To pluck you right in half.

When I am through with you
There won’t be anything left

I come to the city alone i packed up my life and my
’cause i feel like a body at rest is a life in hell
so unpack my bags unpack my bags
kiss her on the mouth and she says
“smile little lamb”

When I am through with you
There won’t be anything left

Be sure to pop by The VLA’s MySpace page, where you can listen to this and some more of their songs.
