Jesca Hoop - Live - 'Born To' - Rex Theater - 4.16.12 - Pittsburgh

Jesca Hoop live at Town Hall on April 26, 2012 performing 'Born To' from her forthcoming album 'The House That Jack Built''.

Born to

Held all within these flesh walls
Pair of dice and domino
Seven fingers and thirteen toes
Wind her up and watch her go
Spin her out of dust into rock and fire
Oh Holy water
Throw her to the earth
Through the burning air
Big bang survivor

Chorus- and now you gotta get it with what you've got
With what you've been given or not

Almost a decade ago, KCRW began playing songs by a little known singer-songwriter named Jesca Hoop. Her latest album, The House that Jack Built, is one of her catchiest yet and we're thrilled to have her back in the studio on Morning Becomes Eclectic. Watch / Listen to the full session here:

"and now you gotta get it with what you’ve got
With what you’ve been given or not
And now you gotts get it with what you’ve got
With what you’ve been given or not"
