I Need

I need some good luck, I need a best friend
I need a rough dog, I need a mountain
I need some new clothes, a tv, a cause
A trip to nirvana, a thrill of applause
I need a wet kiss, I need to confess
I need a vision, religion
The right to be silent, then to be heard
A week on an island, a diet that works
I need a dose of the bible, another course in survival
Just talk about the essentials, to make me feel alive
That's all I need, see how easy I am to please
That's all I need, see how easy I am
I need some money, more money and more time
A strong cup of coffee, a haircut, a lifeline
A stranger to trust me, my father to love me
Seattle, a sunburn, and lots of Todd Rungran
I need a guitar, to do it on all fours
Cool friends, weekend, and someone to die for
When I'm alone on my couch, nothing can settle me down
I'm adding on to my list, it makes me feel alive
That's all I need, see how easy I am to please
That's all I need, see how easy I am
I need a guru, I need to chill
I need a Mercedes 280SL, yeah,
That'll fix it, I'll be complete
I need a, I need, I need a
That's all I need, see how easy I am to please
That's all I need, and maybe then I'll be complete
That's all I need, I'm not asking for everything
That's all I need, see how easy I am

Bitch

I hate the world today, your so good to me
I know but I can't change
Tried to tell you, but you look at me like
Maybe I'm an angel underneath
Innocent and sweet, yesterday I cried
You must have been relieved to see the softer side
I can understand how you can be confused, I don't envy you
I'm a little bit of everything all rolled into one
I'm a bitch, I'm a lover
I'm a child, I'm a mother
I'm a sinner, I'm a saint
I do not feel ashamed
I'm your hell, I'm your dream
I'm nothing in between
You know you wouldn't want it any other way
So take me as I am
This may mean you'll have to be a stronger man
Rest assured that when I start to make you nervous
And I'm going to extremes
Tomorrow I will change and today won't mean a thing
I'm a bitch, I'm a lover
I'm a child, I'm a mother
I'm a sinner, I'm a saint
I do not feel ashamed
I'm your hell, I'm your dream
I'm nothing in between
You know you wouldn't want it any other way
Just when you think you've got me figured out
The season is already changing
I think it's cool you do what you do
And don't try to save me
I'm a bitch, I'm a lover
I'm a child, I'm a mother
I'm a sinner, I'm a saint
I do not feel ashamed
I'm your hell, I'm your dream
I'm nothing in between
You know you wouldn't want it any other way
I'm a bitch, I'm a tease
I'm a goddess on my knees
When your hurt, when you suffer
I'm your angel undercover
I've been numb, I'm revived
Can't say I'm not alive
You know I wouldn't want it any other way
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Somedays

Somedays goes your way
Your on a roll you can't explain
And then it all goes down the drain
Your cat is hit by a car
The ATM eats your card
Your wondering what changed from yesterday
Save me from, from going mental
Save me from just spinning out
Somedays are better than others
Somedays you just can't figure out
Somedays you can't explain
My best friend and me one night
One drink a piece at Cresent Hive
Just like that we end up in a fight
Like a yo-yo up and down
Your headed north, you end up south
Save me from, from going mental
Save me from just spinning out
Somedays are better than others
Somedays you just can't figure out
Somedays are better than others
You can't explain somedays, always, someday
Save me from, from going mental
Save me from just spinning out
Somedays are better, somedays are never
Somedays whatever, somedays are better than lovers
Somedays you just can't figure out
Somedays are better than others
Somedays you just can't get out

Watched You Fall

You were my world companion
We were forever high, high, high
We burn the night around us
Sleeping could wait until we die
You wear the scars of passion
And since that crashing came
You've broken every promise
I walked away
I watched you fall
I was blind to ya, was lying to ya
Everybody else who watched you fall
Say they love you but they're laughing when you crawl
It's such a weary feeling
When you've been stealing from yourself
Wishing the world away, blaming someone else
No one can do this for you
Straighten your head, fix your face
Take all the pain inside you, wash it away
Did I hear you? Did I try?
Can I forgive myself for not standing by?
I watched you fall
I was blind to ya, was lying to ya
Like everybody else who watched you fall
Say they love you but they're laughing when you crawl
I was blind to ya, was lying to ya
Said I loved you but I'm laughing when you crawl
Was blind to ya, I watched you fall
And I watched you

Pollyanne

Here we go again same old argument
You're calling me Miss Pollyanne
You see the world as cruel, and being mad is cool
You think that I don't give a damn
Ya don't have to shout to be heard
Who said dark is deep? You'd rather flip the bird
I'd rather show ya signs of peace
Love ain't a dying art as far as I can see
Oh, sentimental me
Fist up in the air, mine used to be up there
You only give yourself away
So paint your roses black and blue
Use the fuck word I can too
When I have nothing else to say
Ya don't have to shout to be heard
Who said dark is deep? You'd rather flip the bird
I'd rather show ya signs of peace
Love ain't a dying art as far as I can see
Oh, sentimental me
Sentimental me
Ya don't have to shout to be heard
Who said dark is deep? You'd rather flip the bird
I'd rather show ya signs of peace
Love ain't a dying art as far as I can see
Oh, sentimental me
Sentimental me, sentimental me
Here we go again, we may never change
So you can call me Pollyanne
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Shatter

Prick of the pin, no blood on me
I've been tested, total wasted and too deep
To the zone I retreat
What doesn't kill you makes you strong eventually
Blade to my skin, blurring the edge
Seven doves are waiting for me up ahead
I just breathe in, I just breathe out
I've taken every hairpin curve by now
I may crack but I'll never shatter
I may crack but it doesn't matter
I may crack but I'll never shatter
I may crack
Promise the world, dropped in a pool
Was it fun? Did you enjoy acting so cool?
Here's the thing, still have my head
I stumbled hard but I'm not sleeping in your bed
Saved by the son, no shame on me
Come out screaming, it's the only time we're free
I just breathe out, I just breathe in
I'd ride the wave until I come again
I may crack but I'll never shatter
I may crack but it doesn't matter
I may crack but I'll never shatter
I may crack but I'll never shatter
Cause I still have a secret
In the dark I keep it closed
I still have a secret no one knows
I may crack but I'll never shatter
Destiny wasted over and over
I may crack but it doesn't matter
In the darkness I won't shatter
Shake down just did in time
It's amazing that I still
I just breathe in, I just breathe out
I may crack but I'll never shatter
Cause I still have a secret
In the dark I keep it closed
I still have a secret no one knows
In the dark I keep it closed
I may crack but I'll never shatter
I may crack but I'll never shatter
I may crack but I'll never shatter
I may crack

My Little Town

We lock the doors at night, all the sirens scream
I don't drive my car, insurance is too high
I live here in the city, my home town is far away
I work out with concrete, I don't drive my car
The stars come out at night, to see them on the strip
Everybody arms themselves, there's no other place like this
I'll never leave the small town girl behind
The place were I come from is with me all the time
You could walk the streets when the sun goes down
In my little town
You don't need defenses when the sun goes down
In my little town
Back home on the street after ten at night
Mrs. Avery walks her dog, checks to see what's going on
She doesn't lock the door, she lives here in good heath
You don't hear the harm when Mrs. Avery walks her dog
All I every wanted was a view of city lights
Break away from here, leave behind the quiet nights
Spend half your life trying to make a change
And the other half trying to get back again
You could walk the streets when the sun goes down
In my little town
You don't need defenses when the sun goes down
In my little town
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

What Would Happen

Electricity, eye to eye
Hey do I know you? I can't speak
Stripped my senses on the spot
I've never been defenseless
I can't even make sense of this
You speak and I don't hear a word
What would happen if we kissed?
Would your tongue slip past my lips?
Would you run away? Would you stay?
Or would I melt into you?
Mouth to mouth, lust to lust
Spontaneously combust
The room is spinning out of control
You act like you didn't notice, brushed my hand
Forbidden fruit, ring on my finger
Your such a moral moral man
Would you throw it away? A question
Will I pretend I'm innocent?
What would happen if we kissed?
Would your tongue slip past my lips?
Would you run away? Would you stay?
Or would I melt into you?
Mouth to mouth, lust to lust
Spontaneously combust
What would happen if we kissed?
I struggle with myself again
Quickly the walls are crumbling
Don't know if I can turn away
What would happen if we kissed?
Would your tongue slip past my lips?
Would you run away? Would you stay?
Or would I melt into you?
Mouth to mouth
Would your tongue slip past my lips?
Would you run away? Would you stay?
Or would I melt into you?
Mouth to mouth
If we kissed
If we kissed
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

It Don't Get Better

Woke up this morning with my head so heavy
Thought about leaving on the next train coming
Sometimes it gets so easy running from town to town
But changing bed won't change this feeling that I'm going to drown
Too many hearts are broken we're never asked why
Too many sunsets are just passing us by
Come over here don't be shy
Do you want to be happy or you want to be right?
It don't get much better than this
There's nowhere left to run to
No use worrying about what you missed
Cause here it is baby it don't get better than this
We talk and talk and never know what it means
It really doesn't matter because nothings ever what is seems
All I ever wanted is here with you
But sometimes I get wrapped up and confused
So lets go down to the edge of the sand
Take some time and take my hand
So much here we don't understand
So kiss me like the world is going to end
It don't get much better than this
There's nowhere left to run to
No use worrying about what you missed
Cause here it is baby it don't get better than this
Come on, come on take my hand
It don't get much better than this
There's nowhere left to run to
No use worrying about what you missed
Cause here it is baby it don't get better than this
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Birthday

When is you birthday? What's your middle name?
Who's your hero? What's your favorite flavor ice cream?
Can you tell me? Tell me this
Are you aries? Are you on the cusp of cancer?
Going to get to know you better, what, no it's not a quiz
You can trust me now, we'll dig a little deeper
Let's trade numbers, let's trade beepers
So I can find you anyplace
Hey, why you looking at your watch?
We haven't had desert
It's early just 8:30, only our first date
I wanna know do you love me yet?
Do you feel the same? Am I your everything?
I wanna know isn't true love great?
Come on tell me, when's your birthday?
Where ya going, why ya leaving?
After all we've been through can't you think of me?
I'll think of you, don't throw it all away
I'll quit my job, have your children
You'll work hard I'll spend your millions
Hey, no pressure, you've got time
Just don't make me wait
I wanna know do you believe in fate?
When your moving in, be my everything
I wanna know we are for always
Come on tell me, when's your birthday?
When's your birthday?
And it isn't just a ???? high
I never felt this way about any other guy before
I ain't getting any younger
I ain't fooling anymore
I wanna know do you love me yet?
I wanna wear your ring, be your everything
I wanna know isn't true love great?
Come on tell me Come on tell me I wanna know do you believe in fate?
Do you feel the same? be my everything
Come on tell me
When's your birthday?
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Stop

It's seven in the morning and your walking out the door
You got no time for coffee
I'm starring here remembering when my kisses made you late
Gonna take a minute for my morning meditation
But I'm on the phone call... waiting... click... done
Under an invasion I feel like
I'm a spinning ball in a lottery cage
If we aren't making love how can we be lovers?
Gonna post a vacancy sign under the covers
Before it gets to late I'm gonna say
Stop what you're doing and love me now
I'm making my move come on and love me now
I come home so tired just wanna put my feet up
You watch Letterman and eat something old I heat up
Then we both fall asleep before the rooster starts to crow
No time to fight we pretend love is so sweet
When all we're missing is what's between the sheets
Used to find an hour between start and go
What ever happened to staying up all night?
When the bed became our island and it was just you and I
Our troubles would slip away when we said
Stop what you're doing and love me now
I'm making my move come on and love me now
Time... time...
Time... time... time...
Are we beating the time?
Just you and I, magic ride
If we aren't making love how can we be lovers?
Gonna post a vacancy sign under the covers
Before it gets to late I'm gonna say
Stop what you're doing and love me now
I'm making my move come on and love me now
Stop what you're doing and love me now
I'm making my move come on and love me now
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Wash my hands

Washed my hands of crimes
Pour the water over my skin, my spine
Cleanse my soul and ease my mind
I've been fixing all the damage done
Why do I always forget how far I've come?
I'm done dying for the past
I'm done dying for the past
Sins all forgiven now
Let's call an even ????
Can't you judge me for my love
And not mistakes I've made
I swear by who I am and not by yesterday
I'm done dying for the past
I'm done dying for the last time
The last time, the last time, the last time
In between black and white I disappear
Circled around the stone until I landed here
I'm done dying for the past
I'm done dying for the past
I'm done dying
I'm done for the last time
