- Introducing Tangie Waters
“I want to paint you a picture and write you a song about the love below the hole in my soul. But I am afraid that you will look at me differently. I am not what you think I am, bitter sweet, sassy and sexy, a little bit of every woman. Nawh, I am the jagged edges of a cracked plate on the way down off the counter.” -Tangie, Pretty Monster
