Frances Bean Cobain, daughter of Seattle grunge icon Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love, has released a snippet of a new original song on the 24th anniversary of her father's death.

Though she was only 2 years old when Kurt Cobain died, Frances clearly cherishes her father's memory and the legacy of his impact on the music scene - and it comes through in the lyrics to her song.

Stereogum transcribed the lyrics: “I think I saw you when I was small / I think I found you / A penny for your good thoughts / I think I found you / Jesus hangs in your place on the cross / All these hinges become unscrewed / Heaven knows it was a cage on earth.”

AV News calls the original snippet an "a cappella performance (that is) stark and vulnerable, and the accompanying caption asks you to 'pls don’t steal my baby bean of an idea.'

No word on when Frances Bean Cobain will release the full version of the song. Watch the snippet below:
