The Song Of Struggle

With an impressive cover of Nirvana’s “Heart- Shaped Box,” Haley Richman captures not only the melodic pitch of Kurt’s depressive tone, but manages to make the iconic song her own. Only great artists can do justice for and to a song and artist while simultaneously making the ballad their own and Haley definitely nails that in this special cover.

Interesting Fact: There are many possible interpretations for the “Heart-Shaped Box.” It could be a box for Kurt’s needles, the female anatomy, an actual heart, or a box of love letters. There is no clear explanation, which was probably what Cobain had in mind.

From the band’s third and last studio album, In Utero, “Heart- Shaped Box” was written by Cobain in ’92, finished and released as a single in ’93. Considering the song possessed a lot of personal history for Kurt and created struggle in his life, we feel that the deceased rockstar would thoroughly enjoy this wonderful rendition of his great song. Enjoy!

+ Heart- Shaped Box Lyrics +

She eyes me like a Pisces when I am weak
I’ve been locked inside your heart-shaped box for weeks
I’ve been drawn into your magnetar pit trap trap
I wish I could eat your cancer when you turn black

Hey!
Wait!
I’ve got a new complaint
Forever in debt to your priceless advice
Hey!
Wait!
I’ve got a new complaint
Forever in debt to your priceless advice
Hey!
Wait!
I’ve got a new complaint
Forever in debt to your priceless advice, your advice

Meat-eating orchids forgive no one just yet
Cut myself on angel hair and baby’s breath
Broken hymen of your Highness, I’m left back
Throw down your umbilical noose so I can climb right back

Hey!
Wait!
I’ve got a new complaint
Forever in debt to your priceless advice
Hey!
Wait!
I’ve got a new complaint
Forever in debt to your priceless advice
Hey!
Wait!
I’ve got a new complaint
Forever in debt to your priceless advice, your advice

She eyes me like a Pisces when I am weak
I’ve been locked inside your heart-shaped box for weeks
I’ve been drawn into your magnetar pit trap trap
I wish I could eat your cancer when you turn black

Hey!
Wait!
I’ve got a new complaint
Forever in debt to your priceless advice
Hey!
Wait!
I’ve got a new complaint
Forever in debt to your priceless advice
Hey!
Wait!
I’ve got a new complaint
Forever in debt to your priceless advice, your advice, your advice, your advice
