(Uh-huh, uh-huh)
Stupid girl
(Woo)
Stupid girls
Stupid girls

[Chorus]
Maybe if I act like that
That guy will call me back
Porno paparazzi girls (yeah)
I don't wanna be a stupid girl (uh-huh)

Go to Fred Segal, you'll find them there
Laughing loud so all the little people stare
Looking for a daddy to pay for the champagne
(Droppin' names)

What happened to the dream of a girl president?
She's dancing in the video next to 50 Cent
They travel in packs of two or three
With their itsy-bitsy doggies and their teeny-weeny tees

Where, oh where, have the smart people gone?
Oh where, oh where could they be?
(Yeah, yeah, yeah)

[Chorus]

Maybe if I act like that
Flippin' my blond hair back (yeah)
Push up my bra like that
I don't wanna be a stupid girl

(Break it down now)

The disease is growing; it's epidemic
I'm scared that there ain't a cure
The world believes it, and I'm going crazy
I cannot take any more

I'm so glad that I'll never fit in
That will never be me
Outcasts and girls with ambition
That's what I wanna see (c'mon)

Disasters all around
(Disasters all around)
A world of despair
(A world of despair)
Your only concern
'Will it **** up my hair?'

[Chorus]

Maybe if I act like that (uh-huh, uh-huh, do ya thing)
Flippin' my blond hair back (do ya thing)
Push up my bra like that
I don't wanna be a stupid girl (yeah, yeah, uh)

(Do ya thing, do ya thing, do ya thing, do ya thing, do ya, huh)
(I like this, like this, like this)

Pretty 'will-you-****-me' girl
Silly 'I'm-so-lucky' girl
Pull-my-hair-I'll-suck-it girl
Stupid girl!

Pretty 'will-you-****-me' girl
Silly 'I'm-so-lucky' girl
Pull-my-hair-I'll-suck-it girl
Stupid girl!

(Maybe if I act)
Maybe if I act like that
Flipping my blond hair back
(Maybe if I act)
Push up my bra like that
Stupid girl!
(Girl, girl, girl)

[Chorus]

(Stupid girl)

Maybe if I act like that
(Maybe if I act like that)
Flippin' my blond hair back
(Flipping my blond hair back)
Push up my bra like that
(Push up my bra like that)
I don't wanna be a stupid girl
(Stupid girl)

Maybe if I act like that
(Stupid girl)
Flipping my blond hair back
(Stupid girl)
Push up my bra like that
(Stupid girl)
Stupid girl

Stupid girl
(Stupid girl)

Stupid girl
(Stupid girl)

Stupid girl

You took my hand
You showed me how
You promised me you'd be around
Uh huh
That's right
I took your words
And I believed
In everything
You said to me
Yeah huh
That's right

If someone said three years from now
You'd be long gone
I'd stand up and punch them out
Cause they're all wrong
I know better
Cause you said forever
And ever
Who knew

Remember when we were such fools
And so convinced and just too cool
Oh no
No no
I wish I could touch you again
I wish I could still call you friend
I'd give anything

When someone said count your blessings now
For they're long gone
I guess I just didn't know how
I was all wrong
They knew better
Still you said forever
And ever
Who knew

Yeah yeah
I'll keep you locked in my head
Until we meet again
Until we
Until we meet again
And I won't forget you my friend
What happened

If someone said three years from now
You'd be long gone
I'd stand up and punch them out
Cause they're all wrong and
That last kiss
I'll cherish
Until we meet again
And time makes
It harder
I wish I could remember
But I keep
Your memory
You visit me in my sleep
My darling
Who knew
My darling
My darling
Who knew
My darling
I miss you
My darling
Who knew
Who knew

Long Way to Happy

composer: P!nk, Butch Walker, P!nk, Butch Walker
One night to you
Lasted six weeks for me
Just a bitter little pill now
Just to try to go to sleep
No more waking up to innocence
Say hello to hesitance
To everyone I meet
Thanks to you years ago
I guess I'll never know
What love means to me, but, oh
I'll keep on rolling down this road
But I've got a bad, bad feeling

[Chorus]
It's gonna take a long time to love
It's gonna take a lot to hold on
It's gonna be a long way to happy, yeah
Left in the pieces that you broke me into
Torn apart but now I've got to
Keep on rolling like a stone
Cause it's gonna be a long, long way to happy

Left my childhood behind
In a roll-away bed
Everything was so damn simple
Now I'm losing my head
Trying to cover up the damage
And pad out all the bruises
Do you know I had it
So it didn't hurt to lose it
Didn't hurt to lose it?
No, but, oh
I'll keep on rolling down this road
But I've got a bad, bad feeling

[Chorus]

Now I'm numb as hell, and I can't feel a thing
But don't worry about regret or guilt 'cause I never knew your name
I just want to thank you
Thank you
From the bottom of my heart
For all the sleepless nights
And for tearing me apart, yeah, yeah

[Chorus: x2]

Nobody Knows

length: 3:59
producer: Billy Mann
lyricist: P!nk, Billy Mann
composer: P!nk, Billy Mann
Nobody knows
Nobody knows but me
That I sometimes cry
If I could pretend that I'm asleep
When my tears start to fall
I peek out from behind these walls
I think nobody knows
Nobody knows, no

Nobody likes,
Nobody likes to lose their inner voice
The one I used to hear before my life
Made a choice
But I think nobody knows
No, no
Nobody knows
No

[Chorus]
Baby
Oh, the secret's safe with me
There's nowhere else in the world that I could ever be
And, baby, don't it feel like I'm all alone?
Who's gonna be there after the last angel has flown
And I've lost my way back home?

I think nobody knows, no
I said nobody knows
Nobody cares

It's win or lose, not how you play the game
And the road to darkness has a way
Of always knowing my name
But I think nobody knows
No, no
Nobody knows, no, no, no, no

[Chorus]

And, oh, no, no, no, no
Nobody knows
No, no, no, no, no, no

Tomorrow I'll be there, my friend
I'll wake up and start all over again
When everybody else is gone
No, no, no

Nobody knows
Nobody knows the rhythm of my heart
The way I do when I'm lying in the dark
And the world is asleep
I think nobody knows
Nobody knows
Nobody knows but me
Me

Dear Mr. President I
Come take a walk with me
Let's pretend we're just two people and
You're not better than me
I'd like to ask you some questions if we can speak honestly

What do you feel when you see all the homeless on the street?
Who do you pray for at night before you go to sleep?
What do you feel when you look in the mirror?
Are you proud?

How do you sleep while the rest of us cry?
How do you dream when a mother has no chance to say goodbye?
How do you walk with your head held high?
Can you even look me in the eye
And tell me why?

Dear Mr. President
Were you a lonely boy?
Are you a lonely boy?
Are you a lonely boy?
How can you say
No child is left behind?
We're not dumb, and we're not blind
They're all sitting in your cells
While you pave the road to hell

What kind of father would take his own daughter's rights away?
And what kind of father might hate his own daughter if she were gay?
I can only imagine what the first lady has to say
You've come a long way from whiskey and cocaine

How do you sleep while the rest of us cry?
How do you dream when a mother has no chance to say goodbye?
How do you walk with your head held high?
Can you even look me in the eye?

Let me tell you 'bout hard work
Minimum wage with a baby on the way
Let me tell you 'bout hard work
Rebuilding your house after the bombs took them away
Let me tell you 'bout hard work
Building a bed out of a cardboard box
Let me tell you 'bout hard work
Hard work
Hard work
You don't know nothing 'bout hard work
Hard work
Hard work
Oh

How do you sleep at night?
How do you walk with your head held high?
Dear Mr. President
You'd never take a walk with me
Would you?

I’m Not Dead

length: 3:47
producer: Billy Mann and Al Clay
lyricist: P!nk, Billy Mann
composer: P!nk, Billy Mann
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
There's all these cracks
Crack of sunlight
Crack in the mirror, on your lips
It's the moment of a sunset, Friday
When our conversations twist
It's the fifth day of ice on a new tattoo
But the ice should be on our heads
We only spun the wheel to catch ourselves
So we weren't left for death

And I was never looking for approval from anyone but you
And though this journey is over, I'll go back if you ask me to

[Chorus]
I'm not dead, just floating
Right between the ink of your tattoo
In the belly of the beast we turned into
I'm not scared, just changing
Right beyond the cigarette and the devilish smile
You're my crack of sunlight

You can do the math a thousand ways, but you can't erase the facts
That others come, and others go, but you always come back
I'm a winter flower underground, always thirsty for summer rain
And just like the change of seasons
I know you'll be back again

[Chorus]

I'm not dead just yet
I'm not dead, I'm just floating
Doesn't matter where I'm going
I'll find you
I'm not scared at all
Underneath the cuts and bruises
Finally gained what no one loses
I'll find you
I will find you

I'm not dead, just floating
I'm not scared, just changing
You're my crack of sunlight, yeah

Ha ha ha
We're gonna rock and roll
Ra, ra
All right, I drink more than you
I party harder than you do
And my car's faster than yours too

P, I, N, K
P, I, M, P
I'm back again
I know y'all missed me
I'm so so sick
Can't handle it
Yeah, I talk ****
Just deal with it

My rims are twenty-three inch
And they're black on black
No, they're not his
Diamonds all over my teeths (her teeth)
You can try and try, you can't beat me

[Chorus]
So I'll cash my checks and place my bets
And hope I'll always win
Even if I don't I'm ****ed because
I live a life of sin
But it's alright
I don't give a damn
I don't play your rules, I make my own
Tonight
I'll do what I want
Cause I can

You know I'm rare
You stop and stare
You think I care
I don't
You talk real loud
But you ain't saying nothing cool
I could fit your whole house in my swimming pool

My life's a fantasy
That you're not smart enough to even dream
My ice is making me freeze
You can try and try, you can't beat me

[Chorus]

Uh
Break it down
It's tough times out here; ya know what I'm saying?
Yeah, I'm super thick
People say I'm much too chic
Come and kiss the ring
You just might learn a couple things
I'm trying to school you, dog
Roof, roof, roof, roof, roof, roof, roof
I'm your worst nightmare
Bring it, we can take it there
What, are you scared?

[Chorus: x2]

Leave Me Alone (I’m Lonely)

length: 3:19
producer: Butch Walker
lyricist: P!nk, Butch Walker
composer: P!nk, Butch Walker
Go away
Give me a chance to miss you
Say goodbye
It'll make me want to kiss you
I love you so
Much more when you're not here
Watchin' all the bad shows
Drinking all of my beer

I don't believe Adam and Eve
Spent every goddamn day together
If you give me some room, there will be room enough for two

[Chorus]
Tonight
Leave me alone; I'm lonely
Alone, I'm lonely
I'm tired
Leave me alone; I'm lonely
Alone, I'm lonely tonight

I don't wanna wake up with another
But I don't wanna always wake up with you either
No, you can't hop into my shower
All I ask for is one ****in' hour
You taste so sweet
But I can't eat the same thing every day
Cuttin' off the phone
Leave me the **** alone
Tomorrow I'll be beggin' you to come home

[Chorus]

Go away
Come back
Go away
Come back
Why can't I just have it both ways?
Go away
Come back
Go away
Come back
I wish you knew the difference
Go away
Come back

Go away
Give me a chance to miss you
Say goodbye
It'll make me want to kiss you
Go away
Give me a chance to miss you
Say goodbye
It'll make me want to kiss you
Go away
Give me a chance to miss you
Say goodbye
It'll make me want to kiss you

[Chorus x 2]

Tonight
Go away
Give me a chance to miss you
Leave me alone; I'm lonely
Alone, I'm lonely
Say goodbye
It'll make me want to kiss you
I'm tired
Go away
Give me a chance to miss you
Leave me alone; I'm lonely
Alone, I'm lonely
Say goodbye
It'll make me want to kiss you
Tonight
Go away
Give me a chance to miss you
Say goodbye
It'll make me want to kiss you, kiss you

Check it out, goin' out on the late night
Lookin' tight, feeling nice; it's a **** fight
I can tell I just know that it's going down, tonight
At the door, we don't wait 'cause we know them
At the bar, six shots just beginnin'
That's when **** head put his hands on me
But ya see

[Chorus]
I'm not here for your entertainment
You don't really wanna mess with me tonight
Just stop and take a second
I was fine before you walked into my life
Cause you know it's over, before it began
Keep your drink, just give me the money
It's just you and your hand tonight

Midnight, I'm drunk, I don't give a ****
Wanna dance by myself, guess you're out of luck
Don't touch, back up, I'm not the one
Buh-bye
Listen up, it's just not happenin'
You can say what you want to your boyfriends
Just let me have my fun tonight, a'ight

[Chorus]

You're in the corner with your boys; you bet them five bucks
You'd get the girl that just walked in, but she thinks you suck
We didn't get all dressed up just for you to see
So quit spilling your drinks on me

You know you are
High five and talking ****
But you are going home alone
Aren't ya?

[Chorus: x2]

Runaway

length: 4:24
producer: Billy Mann and Josh Abraham
lyricist: Billy Mann, P!nk
composer: P!nk, Billy Mann
I've got my things packed
My favorite pillow
Got my sleeping bag
Climb out the window
All the pictures and pain
I left behind
All the freedom and fame
I've gotta find
And I wonder
How long it'll take them to notice that I'm gone
And I wonder
How far it'll take me

To run away
It don't make any sense to me
Run away
This life makes no sense to me
Run away
It don't make any sense to me
Run away
It don't make any sense to me

I was just trying to be myself
Have it your way; I'll meet you in hell
It's all these secrets that I shouldn't tell
I've got to run away
It's hypocritical of you
Do as you say, not as you do
I'll never be your perfect girl
I've got to run away

I'm too young to be
Taken seriously
But I'm too old to believe
All this hypocrisy
And I wonder
How long it'll take them to see my bed is made
And I wonder
If I was a mistake

I might have nowhere left to go
But I know that I cannot go home
These words are strapped inside my head
Tell me to run before I'm dead
Chase the rainbows in my mind
And I will try to stay alive
Maybe the world will know one day
Why won't you help me run away?

It don't make any sense to me
Run away
This life makes no sense to me
Run away

I could sing for change
On a Paris street
Be a red light dancer
In New Orleans
I could start again
To the family
I could change my name
Come and go as I please
In the dead of night
You'll wonder where I've gone
Wasn't it you?
Wasn't it you?
Wasn't it you that made me run away?

I was just trying to be myself
Have it your way; I'll meet you in hell
All these secrets that I shouldn't tell
I've got to run away
It's hypocritical of you
Do as you say, not as you do
Never be your perfect girl
I've got to run away
It don't make any sense to me
Run away
This life makes no sense to me
Run away
It don't make any sense to me
Run away
It don't make any sense to me

This life makes no sense to me
It don't make no sense to me
It don't make any sense to me
Life don't make any sense to me

The One That Got Away

length: 4:43
producer: Billy Mann
lyricist: Billy Mann, P!nk
composer: P!nk, Billy Mann
Oh, oh
I stood by the exit door of the hotel cafe
He was playing with his band
I've always been a sucker
Had a weakness for a boy with a guitar and a drink in his hand
His words were like heaven in my hurricane
My knees buckled under
I thought everyone was watching me
Watching you save my life with the song

You were mine
In the back of my mind
Oh, just for one night
Just for a while

There's always one that gets away
The one that sneaks up on you then slips away

Two weeks later I was sitting in his apartment
He was making cappuccino
I said, 'what kind of man makes cappuccino?'
We laughed
We laughed
We laughed
We laughed till tears ran down my face

Oh, but, my man, you're someone else's man
And that ain't the man that I want
But you keep drawing me in with those big, brown, lying eyes

You'll always be mine
In the back of my mind
Oh, we had a night
Just a little while

There's always one that gets away
The one that sneaks up on you then slips away

In a closed off corner of my heart, yes
I'll always see your face
The one that got away
One that got away
The one that got away
The one that got away
Oh, the one that got away
The one that got away
Oh, the one that got away
The one that got away
Oh, the one that got away
Yeah, yeah
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Yeah, yeah
Oh

I'm not a victim of cliches
I don't believe in soul mates
Happy endings, only one
Oh, and I met you, and all that changed
I had a taste, and you're still sitting on the tip of my tongue

You were mine
Somewhere in time
I'll look for you first
In my next life

There's always one that gets away
The one that sneaks up on you then slips away
Slips away
In a closed off corner of my heart, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
I, I'll always see your face
The one that got away
The one that got away
The one that got away
The one that got away
Oh, the one that got away
The one that got away
Oh, the one that got away
The one that got away
The one that got away
Yeah, yeah
Oh, oh, yeah
The one that got away

I Got Money Now

producer: Mike Elizondo
lyricist: P!nk, Mike Elizondo
composer: P!nk, Mike Elizondo
When I was a young buck
I tried to be liked by
Everyone
Everyone
I tried so hard to be funny and nice
I tried so hard to be sugar and spice
Didn't work for me
Got old quickly
But now I'm not losing sleep at night
No one's calling me on the telephone
To see if I'm at home
'Cause now I've got everything that I have ever wanted, or so it seems
Yeah, so it seems, yeah

[Chorus]
You don't
Have to
Like me
Anymore
I've got money now
I don't care
What you say
About me
Anymore
I've got money now

When I got a little older
I realized
It's all lies
There is no prize
There is no prize
There is no heartache if you can afford
Everything delivered right to your door
Responsibilities
This life is easy
So, now, girl with everything
How could she complain?
Cause she's got it made
Yeah, she's got it made
I don't need to be tucked in at night
Told that everything is gonna be alright
Is gonna be alright
'Cause I don't have to fight

[Chorus]

I wouldn't trade a dollar for some sense
I wouldn't trade a lifetime for some friends
I've got everything
And all is what it seems
I worked so hard all of my life
Just to have things I could call mine
I don't need no love
Cause I have got enough
So, now I don't mind being alone all the time
It's alright
I've got money now
That's what it's all about
And I'm so busy buying things and traveling the world
I don't have time for friends
Or family
And that's fine with me
So it seems

[Chorus: x2]

Conversations With My 13 Year Old Self

Conversations with my thirteen year old self
Conversations with my thirteen year old self

You're angry
I know this
The world couldn't care less
You're lonely
I feel this
And you wish you were the best
No teachers
Or guidance
And you always walk alone
You're crying
At night when
Nobody else is home

Come over here and let me hold your hand and hug you, darling
I promise you that it won't always feel this bad
There are so many things I want to say to you
You're the girl I used to be
You little, heartbroken, thirteen year old me

You're laughing
But you're hiding
God, I know that trick too well
You forget
That I've been you
And now I'm just the shell
I promise
I love you, and
Everything will work out fine
Don't try to
Grow up yet
Oh, just give it some time

The pain you feel is real; you're not asleep, but it's a nightmare
But you can wake up anytime
Oh, don't lose your passion or the fighter that's inside of you
You're the girl I used to be
The pissed-off, complicated, thirteen year old me

Conversations with my thirteen year old self
Conversations with my thirteen year old self

Until we meet again
Oh, I wish you well, oh
I wish you well
Little girl
Until we meet again
Oh
I wish you well
Little girl
I wish you well
Until we meet again
My little, thirteen year old me

I'm alone now, starin' at the ceiling
I'm kinda bored now, I can't sleep
And you and me can't make my life complete
And when you come, you slip into a dream

When it's late at night and you're fast asleep
I let my fingers do the walking
I press record, I become a phene
And no one else is watching
I let my fingers do the walking

I'm starvin' for some attention
I'm beggin', pleadin', bleedin' for a suggestion
I bite my tongue because I wanna scream
I'm almost there and you turn, and look at me

When it's late at night and you're fast asleep
I let my fingers do the walking
I press record, I become a phene
And no one else is watching
I let my fingers do the walking

Rewind and you will see
Why in the mornin' I'm happy
Right there on the TV screen
Me vengo, me vengo

I'm restless, you need some caffeine
But I'm wasted if you could only see
'Cause I need more than you are gonna give

When it's late at night and you're fast asleep
I let my fingers do the walking
I press record, I become a phene
And no one else is watching

When it's late at night and you're fast asleep
I let my fingers do the walking
I press record, I become a phene
And no one else is watching
I let my fingers do the walking
I let my fingers do the walking

I Have Seen the Rain

composer: Jim Moore
lyricist: Jim Moore
I have seen the rain
I have felt the pain
I don't know where I'll be tomorrow
I don't know where I'm going
I don't even know where I've been
But I know I'd like to see them again

[Chorus]
Spend my days just searching
Spend my nights in dreams
Stop looking over my shoulder baby
I stopped wondering what it means.
Drop out, burn out, sold your home
Oh they said I should've been more
Probably so if I hadn't been in that crazy damn Vietnam war

I have seen the rain
I've survived the pain
Oh I've been home 30 years or so
And I'm just stepping off of the plane

[Chorus]

We have seen the rain together
We survived the pain forever
Oh it's good to be home again
It's good to be with my friends
Oh it's good to be home again
It's good to feel that rain
