Saturday Sessions: Waxahatchee, Kevin Morby perform "Lilacs"

Waxahatchee is the performance name of Alabama native Katie Crutchfield. Singer and musician Kevin Morby is her partner in life – and sometimes when performing as well. The pair recently moved back to Morby’s native Kansas City, where they both are creating new music. Morby’s new album “Sundowner” came out this fall, and Waxahatchee's album “Saint Cloud” was released last spring. The two joined “CBS This Morning: Saturday” to perform the song "Lilacs," from Waxahatchee’s album “Saint Cloud.”

[MUSIC - WAXAHATCHEE, "LILACS"]

- (SINGING) I wake up feeling nothing, camouflage the wavering sky. I sit at my piano, wander the wild whereby. And the lilacs drank the water, and the lilacs die. And the lilacs drank the water, marking the slow, slow, slow passing of time.

[MUSIC PLAYING]

I get so angry, baby, at something you might say. I dream about an awful stranger, work my way through the day. I run it like a silent movie. I run it like a violent song. Run it like a voice compelling, so right it can't be wrong.

- If I'm a broken record, write it in the dust, babe. I'll fill myself back up like I used to do. And if my bones are made of delicate sugar, I won't end up anywhere good without you. Ooh. Ooh.

- I need your love too.

- When I live a sparse existence, I'll drop down in the fold. Lean in to an urgent falter, spin silence into gold. I run it like the crop of kismet. I run it like a dilettante. I run it like I'm happy, baby, like I got everything I want.

- If I'm a broken record, write it in the dust, babe. I fill myself back up like I used to do. And if my bones are made of delicate sugar, I won't end up anywhere good without you. I won't end up anywhere good without you. Ooh. Ooh.

- I need you love too.

And the lilacs drink the water. And the lilacs drink the water. And the lilacs drink the water.
