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, the thrill of applause
I need a wet kiss
I need to confess
I need a vision, religion, the right to be silent
and then to be heard
a week on an island
a diet that works

I need a dose of the Bible
another course of survival
just talking 'bout 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 Rundgren
I need a guitar
to do it on all fours
Cool friends, weekends 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 am I am

yeah that's all I need

I need a guru
I need to chill
I need a Mercedes 280 SL
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
Maybe then I will be complete

That's all I need
I'm not asking for everything
That's all I need
See how easy I am- I amback to top
Bitch
I hate the world today
Your so good to me, I know
but I can't change
Tried to tell you but you looked 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'd be so 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 you 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 you dream
I'm nothing in between
You know you wouldn't want it any other way

Just when you think you got me figured out
The season's already changin'
I think it's cool you do whatcha 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 you 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 you're 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 wayback to top
Somedays
Somedays it goes your way
your on a road you can't explain
and then it all goes down the drain
Your cat's hit by a car
the ATM eats you card
you're 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
Were drinking peace on crescent height (?)
Just like that we end up in a fight
like a yo-yo up and down
you're heading 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 away
someday

Save me from- from going mental
Save me from 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
Someday, yeah yeahback to top
Watched You Fall
You were my wild companion
we were forever high high high
we burned the night around us
sleeping could wait until we die
You were the scars of passion
and since the crashing came
You've broken every promise
I walked away

I watched you fall
I was blind to ya
was lying to ya
like everyone 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 you hair
fix your face
Take all the pain inside you wash it away

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

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, laughin' when you crawl
I was blind to ya
was lying to you
said I love you but I'm laughing
when you crawl
was blind to ya
you fall
I watched you fall
I watched youback to top
Pollyanne
Here we go again
same ol' argument
you're callin me Miss Pollyanne
you see the world as cruel
and being mad is cool
you think that I don't give a damn

You 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
yeah... o 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

You 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
yeah... o sentimental me
yeah... sentimental me
yeah...

You 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
yeah... o sentimental me
yeah... sentimental me
yeah... sentimental

here we go again
we may never change
so you can call me Pollyanneback to top
Shatter
Prick of a pin
No blood on me
I've been tested
Total wasted
In too deep
To the zone
I retreat
What doesn't kill you
Makes you strong eventually
Lay 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 cruel
Well here's the thing
Still have my head
I stumble hard but I'm not sleeping in your bed
Saved by the sun
No shame on me
Come out screaming it's the only time we're free
I just breathe out
I just breathe in
I ride the wave until I come again

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

But I'll never shatter
Cause I still have a secret
In the dark I keep it close
I still have a secret no one knows

I may crack, but I'll never shatter
Just erased it over and over
I may crack, but it doesn't matter
In the darkness, I'll never shatter

Shake down
Twisted in time
It's amusing that I'm feelin' fine
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 close
I still have a secret no one knows
In the dark I keep it close

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 crackback to top
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 hometown's far away
I workout with concrete
I don't drive my car

The stars come out at night
You see them on the strip
Everybody arms themselves
There's no other place like this

I'll never leave this
Small town girl behind
The place where I come from
Is with me all the time

Oh, 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 10 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 health
You don't hear the horn
When Mrs. Avery walks her dog

All I ever 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
Then the other half
Trying to get back again

Oh, 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

Look down the road
Look at the highway
Look past the fences
Look at the faces
What do you have on the other side?

Oh, 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 my town
You could walk the streets
When the sun goes down
In my little town
You don't need defenses
In my little town where I come from
In my little town you don't need a gun
In my little town where I come from
In my little townback to top
What Would Happen
Electricity
Eye to Eye
Hey don't I know you
I can't speak

Striped 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
Act like you didn't notice
Brushed my hand

Forbidden fruit
Ring on my finger
You're such a moral moral man
Would you throw it away
No 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 come 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

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
If we kissed
If we kissedback to top
It Don't Get Better
Woke up this morning with my head so heavy...
Thought about leaving on the next train comin'
Sometimes it gets so easy running from town to town
But changing beds won't change this feeling that I'm gonna drown
Too many hearts are broken-- we're never asked why
Too many sunsets are just passing us by
Come over here now 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 worryin' 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 'cause nothin's ever what is seems
All I ever wanted is here with you
But sometimes, baby, I get wrapped up and confused
So lets go on 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 gonna end!

It don't get much better than this
There's nowhere left to run to
No use worryin' about what you missed
Cause here it is baby: It don't get better than this
Oh, 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 worryin' about what you missed
Yeah here it is baby: it don't get better than this
Oh Oh Oh (various chorus shouts until end)back to top
Birthday
When's your birthday?
What's your middle name?
Who's youre hero?
What's your favourite flavour ice-cream?
Can you tell me, tell me this

Are you Aries?
Are you on the cusp of cancer?
Gonna 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 any place
Hey, why are 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? are you everything?
I wanna know isn't true love great?
Come'on tell me, when's your birthday?

Where ya going
Why ya leavin'?
After all whe've been through
Cant't you think of me, i'll think of you
Don't throw it all away
I'll quit my job I'll have you're 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 you're 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
I wanna know isn't true love great?
Come on tell me
When's your birthday?back to top
Stop
It's seven in the morning and your walking out the door
You got no time for coffee
I'm standing 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 meating 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 nowback to top
Wash My Hands
Washed my hands of crimes
Pour the water over my skin, my spine
Cleans my soul and ease my mind
I've been fixed 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 timeback to top
