Bullet with Butterfly Wings

When I was 15 I wanted to be a rock star and so I went to a voice coach. During my first lesson she asked me to sing her a song. I sang the Smashing Pumpkins' “Bullet with Butterfly Wings”. Then she gave me some breathing exercises, but after a month, I hardly practiced them anymore. After a while I gave up on the whole thing. My brother took my Smashing Pumpkins CD and I forgot about them too. Years later, I discovered that someone close to me had played this song on a CD walkman while dying. I decided to sing the song again, and record it on video.
