Both Hands - cover (Ani DiFranco)

Acoustic guitar and voice. Pretty straight as far as my memory of the proper song goes.

My sister lent me the Ani DiFranco's Living in Clip when I was 16 and I listened to this song all summer. I haven't listened to it for years, but wanted to sing it. I've always found it very evocative, and it makes me think of my sister.

Used a bit of this in this month's podcast!

I heard this on the podcast and then went back and listened to the album--my college roommate would always listen to it when she was going to sleep, but I could never fall asleep until it was over ...I hadn't listened to it for years and it brought back a lot of memories! I really like your version, thank you for posting it.

Cool! Thank you. It's one of those songs that comes back to me occasionally. It feels like the strong imagery in the lyrics managed to tie itself up with lots of memories. I'm glad it was a link to the past for you too.

I hadn't heard this since college, either! This is a great cover. Thanks!
