I Don’t Want to Feel Guilty

For our first week of the Mid-Season Break, we present the complete version of the song “I Don’t Want to Feel Guilty,” from “Fealty/Frailty.

“I don’t want to feel guilty
Don’t want to feel guilty, for killing you
I don’t want to make you feel wilty,
My beautiful flower, my honey, my spring
 
“If only today could be yesterday
And if winter got over its nuclear nature
I could have voided the butcher
everybody I love
 
“I don’t want to feel guilty
Don’t want to feel guilty, for killing you”
  • Vocals —Natalie Clyne
  • Keys —Stephen Poon
