Just a Girl
(Gwen Stefani, Tom Dumont)

Take this pink ribbon off my eyes
I'm exposed
And it's no big surprise
Don't you think I know
Exactly where I stand
This world is forcing me
To hold your hand

'Cause I'm just a girl, little ol' me
Don't let me out of your sight
I'm just a girl, all pretty and petite
So don't let me have any rights
Oh... I've had it up to here!

The moment that I step outside
So many reasons
For me to run and hide
I can't do the little things
I hold so dear
'Cause it's all those little things
That I fear

'Cause I'm just a girl,
I'd rather not be
'Cause they won't let me drive
Late at night
I'm just a girl,
Guess I'm some kind of freak
'Cause they all sit and stare
With their eyes
I'm just a girl,
Take a good look at me
Just your typical prototype
Oh... I've had it up to here!
Oh... am I making myself clear?

I'm just a girl
I'm just a girl in the world...
That's all that you'll let me be!

I'm just a girl, living in captivity
Your rule of thumb
Makes me worry some
I'm just a girl, what's my destiny?
What I've succumbed to
Is making me numb
I'm just a girl, my apologies
What I've become is so burdensome
I'm just a girl, lucky me
Twiddle-dum there's no comparison

Oh... I've had it up to!
Oh... I've had it up to!
Oh... I've had it up to here.back to top
Hey You
(Gwen Stefani, Tony Kanal)

Hey you with the wedding dress on
Made of white chiffon blowing in the wind
Hey you with the dreams in your head
You've been so mislead by your heart's pull

I know your waiting for your ship to come in
You anxiously wait for such a long time

You're just like my Ken and Barbie Doll
You dress up and play the game
You're just like my Ken and Barbie Doll
Your name will never change

Hey you with your eyes full of hope
You think you can rope your desire
Hey you, you naive thing
Your patience in time will tire

I know you're waiting for your tide to roll in
How did you ever get such high hopes?

C/H

You're just like my Ken and Barbie Doll
In a plastic world of make believe
You're just like my Ken and Barbie Doll
You know he's gonna leaveback to top
Spiderwebs
NO DOUBT
"Spiderwebs"


You think that we connect
That the chemistry's correct
Your words walk right through my ears
Presuming I likn what I hear
And now I'm stuck in the
The web you're spinning
You've got me for you prey

(Yeah) Sorry I'm not home right now
I'm walking into spiderwebs
So leave a message
And I'll call you back
A likely story, but (Yeah) leave a message
And I'll call you back

You're intruding on what's mine
And you're taking up my time
Don't have the courage inside me
To tell you please let me be

Communication, a telephonic invasion
I'm planning my escape...

(Yeah) Sorry I'm not home right now
I'm walking into spiderwebs
So leave a message
And I'll call you back
A likely story, but (Yeah) leave a message
And I'll call you back

And it's all your fault
I screen my phone calls
No matter who calls
I gotta screen my phone calls

Now it's gone to deep (Now, it's gone too deep)
You wake me in my sleep (Wake me in my sleep)
My dreams become nightmares (Dreams become nightmares)
'Cause you're ringing in my ears

(Yeah) Sorry I'm not home right now
I'm walking into spiderwebs
So leave a message
And I'll call you back
A likely story, but (Yeah) leave a message
And I'll call you back

And it's all your fault
I screen my phone calls
No matter-matter-matter-matter who calls
I gotta screen my phone calls

Oooh, the spiderwebs
Leave a message and I'll call you back
I'm walking into spiderwebs
So, leave a message and I'll call you back
I'm walkink into spiderwebs
It's all your fault, no mattter who calls
I gotta screen my phone calls
It's all your fault, it's all your fault
No matter who calls, no matter who calls

I'm walking into spiderwebs so,
Leave a message and I'll call you back
I'm walking into spiderwebs so,
Leave a message and I'll call you backback to top
Stricken
No Doubt - Strickin


(Eric Stefani, Tony Kanal, Gwen Stefani, Tom Dumont)

I love you completely
I guess I'm kinda mad about you
I love you, I love you I do
Love overcomes all of my senses
Lowers all of my defenses, yeah
And all of your faults vanish to a blind daze
Your bitterness erased by my sense of taste
And harsh words are deafened by love

I love you completely
I couldn't be madder about you
I love you, I love you I do
I love you completely
There's nothin' I see bad about you
I love you, I love you I do

Love welcomes me to every new day
The stars are all falling down my way, yeah
And all of the planets are lined in the sky
The lights are shining down upon you and I
My world is stricken by love

Kiss me over and over forever and ever my love
Kiss me all over and over forever and ever my love
The love I have for you
Makes me blind I can't see
The love I have for you
Cuts my throat I can't speak
The love I have for you makes me numb
I can't feel
The love I have for you makes me numb
I can't feel
But boy, oh boy, oh boy
I love you
Completely, yeah

I love you, I love you - I do do do doback to top
Don't Speak
You and me
We used to be together
Everyday together always
I really feel that I'm losing my best friend
I can't believe this could be the end
It looks as though
You're letting go
And if it's real well I don't want to know

Don't Speak
I know just what you're saying
So please stop explaining
Don't tell me cause it hurts CHORUS
Don't Speak
I know what you're thinking
I don't need you're reasons
Don't tell me cause it hurts

Our memories
They can be inviting
but some are altogether
Mighty frightening
As we die
Boh you and I
With my head in my hands
I sit and cry

Chorus

It's all ending
We gotta stop pretending
Who we are
You and me
I can see us dying
Are we

Chorus

Ex-Girlfriend
I kinda always knew Id end up your ex-girlfriend
I kinda always knew Id end up your ex-girlfriend

I kinda always knew Id end up your ex-girlfriend
I hope I hold a special place with the rest of them
And you know it makes me sick to be on that list
But I should have thought of that before we kissed

You say youre gonna burn before you mellow
I will be the one to burn you
Whyd you have to go and pick me?
When you that we were different, completely

I kinda always knew Id end up your ex-girlfriend
I kinda always knew Id end up your ex-girlfriend
I hope I hold a special place with the rest of them
I kinda always knew Id end up your ex-girlfriend

Im another ex-girlfriend on your list
But I should have thought of that before we kissed

Your wildness scares me
So does your freedom
You say you cant stand the restrictions
I find myself trying to change you
If you were meant to be my lover I wouldnt have to

And I feel so mean, I feel in between
Cause Im about to give you away

I kinda always knew Id end up your ex-girlfriend (for someone else to take)
I kinda always knew Id end up your ex-girlfriend (am I making a mistake?)
I hope I hold a special place with the rest of them (all the time that we spent)
I kinda always knew Id end up your ex-girl, friend

Im another ex-girlfriend on your list
But I should have thought of that before we kissed
Im another ex-girlfriend on your list
But I should have thought of that before we kissed

Im about to give you away for someone else to take
Im about to give you away for someone else to take

We keep repeating mistakes for souvenirs
And weve been in between the days for years
And I know that when I see you Im going to die
I know Im going to want you and you know why
Its going to kill me to see you with the next girl
Cause Im the most gorgeously jealous kind of ex-girl

I kinda always knew Id end up your ex-girlfriend
I kinda always knew Id end up your ex-girlfriend
I hope I hold a special place with the rest of them
I kinda always knew Id end up your ex-girl friend

Im another ex-girlfriend on your list
But I should have thought of that before we kissed
Im another ex-girlfriend on your list

Simple Kind of Life
(G.Stefani)

Fot a long time, I was in love
Not only in love, I was obsessed
With a friendship that no one else could touch
It didn't work out, I'm covered in shells

And all I wanted was the simple things
A simple kind of life
And all I needed was a simple man
so I could be the wife

I'm so ashamed, I've been so mean
I don't know how it got to this point
Oh, I always was the one with all the love
You came along, I'm hunting you down

Oh, like sick domestic abuser
Looking for a fight
And all I wanted was the simple things
A simple kind of life

Oh, If we met tomorrow for the very first time
Would it start all over again?
Would I try to make you mine?

I always thought I'd be a mom
Sometimes I wish for a mistake
The longer I wait the more selfish that I get
You seem like you'd be a good dad

Now all the simple things are simply too complicated for my life
And how'd I get so faithful to my freedom
A selfish kind of life

And all I ever wanted was the simple things
A simple kind of life

A simple kind of life x14 and fade outback to top
Magics in the Makeup
Can you tell I'm faking it?
But I want to be myself
A counterfeit disposition
Can't be good for my health

So many different faces
Depending on the different phases
My personality changes
I'm a chameleon

There's more then one dimension
I can fool you and attract attention
Camouflage my nature
Let me demonstrate

Makeup's all off
Who am I?
Magic's in the makeup
Who am I?

If you bore me then I'm comfortable
If you interest me I'm scared
My attraction paralyses me
No courage to show my true colors that exist

But I want to be the real thing
But if you catch my eye can't be authentic
The ones I loath are the one's
That know me the best

My makeup's all off
Who am I?
The magic's in the makeup
Who am I?

The makeup's all off
Who am I?
If the magic's in the make up
Then who am I?

Magic's in the makeup
But I want to be the real thing
But the magic's in the makeup
And I want to be the real thing

My makeup's all off
Who am I?back to top
Comforting Lie
(G.Stefani, T.Dumont, T.Kanal)

I started out on the wrong foot
Now I'm not myself
I am Jekyl, I am Hyde
Found this place to hide
Come seek me

Oh, so up and down
So back and forth
So insecure
Can't get this taste out of my mouth
Swallow it down
Pretend

C/H:
Hold it, hold it all in
Let it build up
Build a bomb
Blow it, blow it away
Clear it all out
Just end it

I'm just a normal person
Without those problems
When did it change?
Admissions so embarrassing
I'm on the verge of tears again

C/H

Oh, I took the Band-aid off
Did I take it off too soon?
Hysterical confession
My big courageous move

Don't gasp at the predictable
A comforting lie can't last
Preordained checklist of this akward love
It's so sad

C/H

Sort it, sort it all out
Just give it back
No thank you
And toss it, toss it away
Eliminate
Just give it up

I can't decide
This tug of war
I'm feeling weak

By the Way
(Tom Dumont, Gwen Stefani)

By the way, every little thing about her face
Fills him up, the image so pleasing it could never be erased
Here to stay, embedded in his mind, he wishes they could be together all the time

By the way she says things, the tone, just to hear her voice
He can't explain, the sound so exciting to him a perfect choice
Here to stay, embedded in his mind, he wishes they could be together all the time

Crazy independent spanish speaking
arty flirty red wine drinking sexy tomboy
With a natural way of thinking carefree innocent she's slightly sneaky
Confident and proud from another country has her way lives for today
By the way she's far away

By the way, holding her, hugging her can feel so warm
Just think about it, two bodies embracing, creating love in this form
Here to stay, embedded in his mind, he wishes they could be together all the time

Crazy independent spanish speaking
arty flirty red wine drinking sexy tomboy
With a natural way of thinking crazy

Then she kissed him and she went away
Far across to San Francisco Bay
You'd think that she would think again
And only want to be with him
Regardless of the things that pull her far away, she's far away...

Crazy independent spanish speaking
arty flirty red wine drinking sexy tomboy
With a natural way of thinking crazy
By the way she's far away and by the way she's far away
Crazy independent spanish speaking arty flirty red wine drinking
By the way she's far away and by the way she's far awayback to top
Excuse Me Mr.
(Gwen Stefani, Tom Dumont)

I'm like a beggar with no luck
I'm holding signs up
On your streetcorner stops
Like most you try not to see me
You stare straight ahead
Ignore the responsibility
Excuse me... excuse me Mr.
I've been waiting in line
And I'd like to buy some of your time
I'm very anxious, eager, willing,
What's your billing?

C/H:
So please excuse me Mr.
You've got things all wrong
You make it feel like a crime
So don't confuse me Mr.
I've known you too long
All I need is a little of your time

For most love comes for free
They don't pay the high cost
Of mental custody
I'll pay bail for a guarantee
Please make space for me
In the time yet to be
Excuse me... excuse me Mr.
I've been waiting in line
And I'd like to buy time
Some of your time
I've been saving up my life,
What's your price?

C/H

What should I do
I'm about to crack
And there's a force
That comes over me
It's almost as if I'm tied to the tracks
And I'm waiting for him
To rescue me
The funny thing is
He's not going to come
He's not going to find me
This is a matter of fact
The desire you lack
This is the way I guess it has to be...
A little of your time
I need a little of your time
Please, a little of your time

C/H

I'm in line to buy time
I'm in line to buy timeback to top
Sailin' On
(D. Jenifer, G. Miller; from the compilation
"MOM - MUSIC FOR OUR MOTHER OCEAN")

Ooh...

You don't want me anymore
So I walk out of the door
I play the game right from the start
I trust you, you use me, now my life's all torn apart

So I'm sailing, yeah I'm sailing on
I'm moving, yeah I'm moving on
Sail on sail on sail on sail on - aaaaah

Tried to see if I'll give up
But there wasn't any luck
It's a fact, a fact of life
That's the game, game of strife everything is all in stride

So I'm sailing, I'm sailing on
I'm moving, yeah I'm moving on
Sail on sail on sail on sail on - aaaaah

Yeah

So I'm sailing, yeah I'm sailing on
I'm moving, yeah I'm moving on
Sail on sail on sail on sail on - aaaaah

Yeah la la la

Too many years with too many tears
And too many days with none to say
So how will we know when there's nowhere to grow
The fact of life, life too short oh

There's too many years with too many tears
There's too many days with none to say no no
So how will we know when there's nowhere to grow
The fact of life, the fact of life yeah

Too many years with too many tears
And too many days with none to say
So how will we know when there's nowhere to grow

Greener Pastures
(Tony Kanal, Gwen Stefani)

You're always tellin' me to go out more
Go ahead, get out and see the world
But then I think, why should I
I'd rather stay home and cry

I never thought that I could be the other
The other way like the other ones
Let me open wide, let you see inside
And then you might agree

Would you say they find me unstable
'Cause they see me act a little bit different
But I know my way to greener pastures and
Think about it, won't you think it over
Please

Without you I can move
I can stretch my arms out, I can feel it
And when I'm in my room alone I feel good
Because I don't have to deal with you or the outside world

Would you say they find me unstable
'Cause they see me act a little bit different
But I know my way to greener pastures and
Think about it, won't you think it over
Please

I guess I'll get over it
Ooh - I guess I'll get over it
I guess I'll get over it
I guess I'll get over it

Would you say they find me unstable
'Cause they see me act a little bit different
But I know my way through greener pastures
Would you say they find me unstable
'Cause they see me act a little bit different
But I know my way through greener pastures
Would you say they find me unstable
Cause they see me act a little bit different
But I know my way through greener pastures
Greener pastures
See me act a little bit different
But I know my way through greener pasturesback to top
Sad for Me
Please Miss Fried
He don't mean to be mean
He just needs to leave
He hopes he does not
Cause you inconvenience
Why can't you see?

He says, "please don't be sad for me"

Oh Miss Fried
Please believe you're his queen
He must fight for his dreams
Lovely Miss Fried
He will too miss you
He just needs to be free

He says, "If I should ever cause you to
bleed... don't pretend to be naive"

Don't take him wrong, let him be
Sometimes he feels like he ought to be alone

He says, "Please don't be sad for me"back to top
