Matthew Sweet - Girlfriend

I want to love somebody

I hear you need somebody to love

Oh I want to love somebody

I hear you're looking

for somebody to love

'Cause you need to be back

in the arms of a good friend

and I need to be back

in the arms of a girlfriend

I didn't know nobody

and then I saw you coming my way

Oh I didn't know nobody

and then I saw you coming my way

Don't you need to be back

in the arms of a good friend?

Oh 'cause honey believe me

I'd sure love to call you

my girlfriend

[solo]

Don't you need to be back

in the arms of a good friend?

Oh 'cause honey believe me

I'd sure love to call you

my girlfriend

'Cause you

got a good thing going baby

You only need somebody to love

Oh you got a good thing going

You're only looking

for someone to love

'Cause you need to get back

in the arms of a good friend

And I'm never gonna set you free

No I'm never gonna set you free

Burn The Witch ~ QotSA

Holding hands

Skipping like a stone

On our way

To see what we have done

The first to speak

Is the first to lie

The children cross

Their hearts and hope to die

Bite your tongue

Swear to keep your mouth shut

Ask yourself

Will i burn in Hell?

Then write it down

and cast it in the well

There they are

The mob it cries for blood

To twist and tale

Into fire wood

Fan the flames

With a little lie

Then turn your cheek

Until the fire dies

The skin it peels

Like the truth, away

What it was

I will never say...

Bite your tongue, swear to keep

Keep your mouth shut

Make up something

Make up something good...

Holding hands

Skipping like a stone

Burn the witch

Burn to ash and bone

Burn the witch

Burn to ash and bone

Burn the witch

Burn to ash and bone

Ani Difranco - Not A Pretty Girl

I am not a pretty girl,

that is not what I do.

I ain't no damsel in distress,

and I don't need to be rescued.

So, so put me down punk.

Wouldn't you prefer a maiden fair?

Isn't there a kitten stuck up a tree somewhere?

I am not an angry girl,

but it seems like I've got everyone fooled.

Every time I say something they find hard to hear,

they chalk it up to my anger,

and never to their own fear.

Imagine you're a girl,

just trying to finally come clean,

knowing full well they'd prefer you were dirty...

and smiling.

And I am sorry,

but I am not a maiden fair,

and I am not a kitten, stuck up a tree somewhere.

Generally my generation

would never be caught dead working for the man.

And generally I agree with them,

trouble is you got to find yourself an alternate plan.

And I have earned my disallusionment,

I have been working

all of my life.

And I am a patriot.

I have been fighting the good fight.

And what if there are no damsels in distress?

What if I knew that, and I called your bluff?

Don't you think every kitten

figures out how to get down,

whether or not you ever show up?

I am not a pretty girl.

Don't really want to be a pretty girl.

A classic...

Smile though your heart is aching

Smile even though its breaking

When there are clouds in the sky, youll get by

If you smile through your fear and sorrow

Smile and maybe tomorrow

Youll see the sun come shining through for you

Light up your face with gladness

Hide every trace of sadness

Although a tear may be ever so near

Thats the time you must keep on trying

Smile, whats the use of crying?

Youll find that life is still worthwhile

If you just smile

Thats the time you must keep on trying

Smile, whats the use of crying?

Youll find that life is still worthwhile

If you just smile

Matchbox 20 - Back 2 Good

na no oh

na no oh no

na no oh

It's nothing,

It's so normal

You just stand there

I could say so much

But I don't go there

Cause I don't want to

Well I was thinking if

You were lonely

Maybe we could leave here

And no one would know

At least not to the point

That we would think so

And everyone here,

Knows everyone here

Is thinking about somebody else

Well it's best if we all

Keep this under our heads

oh

Well I couldn't tell,

If anyone here was feeling

The way I do

But I'm lonely now,

And I don't know how

To get it back to good

na no oh

na no oh no

na no oh

This don't mean that,

You own me well

This ain't no good,

In fact it's phony as hell

Yea but things worked out

Just like you wanted too

If you see me out

You don't know me

Try to turn your head,

Try to give me some room

Ah to figure out just

What I'm going to do

Cause everyone here,

Hates everyone here for

Doing just like they do

And it's best if we all

Keep this quiet instead

And I couldn't tell,

Why everyone here was

Doing me like they do

But I'm sorry now,

And I don't know how

To get it back to good

na no oh no

na no oh no

na no oh

Well everyone here,

Is wondering what it's like

To be with somebody else

And everyone here's to blame,

Hell everyone here

Gets caught up in the pleasure

Of the pain

Yea, well everyone here hides

Shades of shame

Yea but looking inside

We're the same,

We're the same

And we're all grown now,

Yea but we don't know how

To get it back to good

na no oh no

na no oh no

na no oh

Everyone here,

Knows everyone here

Is thinking about somebody else

And it's best if we

All keep this under our heads

Hell under our heads yea

See I couldn't tell no,

If anyone here was feeling

The way I do

But it's over now,

yea I don't know how,

Guess it's over now

There's no getting back to good

na no oh no

na no oh no

na no oh

na no no

na no no

"Black Friday" - Steely Dan

"When Black Friday comes I'll stand down by the door

And catch the grey men when they dive from the fourteenth floor

When Black Friday comes I'll collect everything I'm owed

And before my friends find out I'll be on the road

When Black Friday falls you know it's got to be

Don't let it fall on me

When Black Friday comes I'll fly down to Muswell Brook

Gonna strike all the big red words from my little black book

Gonna do just what I please, gonna wear no socks and shoes

With nothing to do but feed all the kangaroos

When Black Friday comes I'll be on that hill

You know I will

When Black Friday comes I'm gonna dig myself a hole

Gonna lay down in it till I satisfy my soul

Gonna let the world pass by me

The Archbishop gonna sanctify me

And if he don't come across I' m gonna let it roll

When Black Friday comes I'm gonna stake my claim

I'll guess I'll change my name"

Sarah McLachlan - Stupid

Night lift up the shades let in the brilliant light of morning

But steady me now for I am weak and starving for mercy

Sleep has left me alone to carry the weight of unraveling where we went wrong

And all I can do to hang on, to keep me from falling into old familiar shoes

How stupid could I be

a simpleton could see

that you're no good for me

but you're the only one I see

Love has made me a fool set me on fire and watched as I floundered

unable to speak except to cry out and wait for your answer

and you come around in your time speaking of fabulous places create

an oasis that dries up as soon as you're gone

you leave me here burning in this desert without you

Chorus

Everything changes everything falls apart

I can't stand to feel myself losing control

In the deep of my senses I know

Chorus

Take a look at my girlfriend

She's the only one I got

Not much of a girlfriend

Never seem to get a lot

Take a jumbo cross the water

Like to see America

See the girls in California

I´m hoping it´s going to come true

But there´s not a lot I can do

Could we have kippers for breakfast

Mummy dear, Mummy dear

They got to have ´em in Texas

Cos everyone's a millionaire

I´m a winner, I´m a sinner

Do you want my autograph

I´m a loser what a joker

I´m playing my jokes upon you

While there´s nothing better to do

Don´t you look at my girlfriend

She´s the only one I got

Not much of a girlfriend

Never seem to get a lot

Take a jumbo cross the water

Like to see America

See the girls in California

I´m hoping it´s going to come true

But there´s not a lot I can do.

She Is Love -- Oasis

Oh when the sunshine beckons to ya

And your wings begin to unfold

The thoughts you bring and the songs you sing

Are gonna keep me from the cold

And if the sword is among ya

And it’s words may wound my soul

You can fill me up with what you’ve got

Cos my heart’s been keeping old

She is love

And her ways are high and steep

She is love

And I believe her when she speaks.

Love

And her ways are high and steep

She is love

And I believe, I do believe her when she speaks.

You’re in all my thoughts of passion

And the dreams of my delight

Whatever stirs my mortal frame

Will you keep it warm at night

I don’t know where you come from

No I haven’t got a clue

All I know is I’m in love

With someone who loves me too.

Smokin' In The Boys Room ~ Brownsville Station

(Spoken)

How you doin' out there? Y'ever seem to have one of those days

where it just seems like everybody's gettin' on your case, from

your teacher all the way down to your best girlfriend? Well,

y'know, I used to have 'em just about all the time. But I found

a way to get out of 'em. Let me tell you about it!

(Sung)

Sitting in the classroom Thinking it's a drag

Listening to the teacher rap Just ain't my bag

The noon bells ring You know that's my cue

I'm gonna meet the boys On floor number two!

Smokin' in the boys' room

Smokin' in the boys' room

Now, teacher, don't you fill me up with your rules

But everybody knows that smokin' ain't allowed in school.

A-checkin' out the halls Makin' sure the coast is clear

Lookin' in the stalls No, there ain't nobody here

Oh, my buddy Fang, and me and Paul

To get caught would surely be the death of us all

Smokin' in the boys' room

Smokin' in the boys' room

Now, teacher, don't you fill me up with your rules

But everybody knows that smokin' ain't allowed in school.

All right!

Oh, put me to work In the school book store

Check out counter And I got bored

Teacher was lookin' For me all around

Two hours later You know where I was found

Smokin' in the boys' room (Yes indeed, I was)

Smokin' in the boys' room

Now, teacher, don't you fill me up with your rules

But everybody knows that smokin' ain't allowed in school.

One mo'!

Smokin' in the boys' room

Oh, smokin' in the boys' room

Now, teacher, I am fully aware of the rules

But everybody knows that smokin' ain't allowed in school!

Here's one of my Top Ten #75 nominations:

At Seventeen by Janis Ian

I learned the truth at seventeen

That love was meant for beauty queens

And high school girls with clear skinned smiles

Who married young and then retired.

The valentines I never knew

The Friday night charades of youth

Were spent on one more beautiful

At seventeen I learned the truth.

And those of us with ravaged faces

Lacking in the social graces

Desperately remained at home

Inventing lovers on the phone

Who called to say come dance with me

and murmured vague obscenities

It isn't all it seems

At seventeen.

A brown eyed girl in hand me downs

Whose name I never could pronounce

said, Pity please the ones who serve

They only get what they deserve.

The rich relationed hometown queen

Married into what she needs

A guarantee of company

And haven for the elderly.

Remember those who win the game

Lose the love they sought to gain

Indebentures of quality

And dubious integrity.

Their small town eyes will gape at you

in dull surprise when payment due

Exceeds accounts received

At seventeen.

To those of us who know the pain

Of valentines that never came,

And those whose names were never called

When choosing sides for basketball.

It was long ago and far away

The world was younger than today

And dreams were all they gave for free

To ugly duckling girls like me.

We all play the game and when we dare

To cheat ourselves at solitaire

Inventing lovers on the phone

Repenting other lives unknown

That call and say, come dance with me

and murmur vague obscenities

At ugly girls like me

At seventeen

And here's my other nominee:

Midnight Blue-Melissa Manchester

Whatever it is, it'll keep till the morning.

Haven't we both got better things to do?

Midnight blue.

Even though simple things become rough,

Haven't we had enough?

And I think we can make it.

One more time, if we try.

One more time for all the old times.

For all of the times you told me you need me,

Needing me now is something I could use.

Midnight blue.

Wouldn't you give your hand to a friend?

Maybe it's not the end.

And I think we can make it.

One more time, if we try.

One more time for all the old times.

Midnight blue.

I think we can make it.

I think we can make it.

Wouldn't you give your hand to a friend?

Think of me as your friend,

And I think we can make it.

One more time, if we try.

One more time for all of the old old times.

I think we can make it, one more time

I think we can make it, if we try

I think we can make it, one more time

I think we can make it, if we try

I think we can make it, one more time

I think we can make it, if we try

I think we can make it

Ryan Adams-Sweet Illusions

Let me go I'm only letting you down

I 've got nothing to say to you now

I lose the feelings that are weighing me down

When I'm safe

It's turning morning all the birds sing

I'm not complicating anything

I'll have another then I'll go to bed

But I'll dream of you

Cause it's almost over

And it's almost gone

And I can feel the sweet illusion, coming

Sweet confusion, honey

Sweet illusion coming down

And I ain't got nothing but love for you now

You and I used to shine like a jewel

But times been nothing to us but cruel

So play it out and never played the fool

Cause you'll lose every time

We were nothing, we were only the past

Hard times like that don't last

I've been forgiven, I've been surpassed

By my heart

Have you?

Cause it's almost over

Yeah it's almost gone

And I can feel the Sweet Illusion coming

Sweet Confusion, honey

Sweet Illusion coming down

And I ain't got nothing but love for you

Love for you I can't use

And lonely nights multiplied by the blues

That I can't resolve

You never knew me but I did my best

I'm just lonely inside I guess

You gave me everything you really tried

Thanks....

If we were nothing and we're only the past

Then I'm just living in a dream I guess

A long black dream that takes me down the river to you

Where it's almost over

And we're almost gone

And I can feel the Sweet Illusion coming

Sweet Confusion, honey

Sweet Illusion coming down

And I ain't got nothing but love for you now

And fat old Uncle Charlie out boozing with their friends

Fear me you lord and lady preachers,

I descend upon your earth from the skies

I command your very souls you unbelievers,

Bring before me what is mine

The seven seas of Rhye

Can you hear me you peers and privy councillors

I stand before you naked to the eyes

I will destroy any man who dares abuse my trust

I swear that you'll be mine, at the seven seas of Rhye

Sister I live and lie for you, mister do and I'll die

You are mine I possess you, belong to you forever

Storm the master marathon I'll fly through

By flash and thunder fire I'll survive, I'll survive I'll survive

Then I'll defy the laws of nature , and come out alive

Begone with you you shod and shady senators

Give out the good leave out the bad evil cries

I challenge the mighty titan and his troubadours

And with a smile

I'll take you to the seven seas of Rhye

(Oh I do like to be beside the seaside

Oh I do like to be beside the sea

Oh I do like to stroll along the prom prom prom)

To go with my nom this week:

Brilliant Disguise - Bruce Springsteen

I hold you in my arms as the band plays

What are those words whispered baby just as you turn away

I saw you last night out on the edge of town

I wanna read your mind and know just what Ive got in this new thing Ive found

So tell me what I see when I look in your eyes

Is that you baby or just a brilliant disguise

I heard somebody call your name from underneath our willow

I saw something tucked in shame underneath your pillow

Well Ive tried so hard baby but I just cant see

What a woman like you is doing with me

So tell me what I see when I look in your eyes

Is that you baby or just a brilliant disguise

Now look at me baby struggling to do everything right

And then it all falls apart when out go the lights

Im just a lonely pilgrim I walk this world in wealth

I want to know if its you I dont trust cause I damn sure dont trust

Myself

Now you play the loving woman Ill play the faithful man

But just dont look too close into the palm of my hand

We stood at the alter the gypsy swore our future was right

But come the wee wee hours maybe baby the gypsy lied

So when you look at me you better look hard and look twice

Is that me baby or just a brilliant disguise

Tonight our bed is cold

Im lost in the darkness of our love

God have mercy on the man

Who doubts what hes sure of

Betterman ~ Pearl Jam

Waitin', watchin' the clock

It's four o'clock

It's got to stop

Tell him, take no more

She practices her speech

As he opens the door, she rolls over

Pretends to sleep as he looks her over

She lies and says she's in love with him

Can't find a better man

She dreams in color, she dreams in red

Can't find a better man

Can't find a better man

Can't find a better man

Ohh

Talkin' to herself

there's no one else who needs to know

She tells herself, oh

Memories back when she was bold and strong

And waiting for the world to come along

Swears she knew it, now she swears he's gone

She lies and says she's in love with him

Can't find a better man

She dreams in color, she dreams in red

Can't find a better man

she lies and says she still loves him

Can't find a better man

She dreams in color, she dreams in red

Can't find a better man

Can't find a better man

Can't find a better man

Yeah

She loved him, yeah

She don't want to leave this way

She feeds him, yeah

That's why she'll be back again

Can't find a better man

Can't find a better man

Can't find a better man

Can't find a better man

Expecting ~ White Stripes

Your mouth said this never

but your fingers have shown me

that your head is so clever

you claim that you own me

forever

forever

forever

forever

You have the right to conduct me

in whatever fashion

your attempt construct me

in the interest of passion

you sent me

to Toledo

Toledo

Toledo

I came back with handfulls

I did what you asked me

but after the "thank you"s

that you quickly got passed me

I'm expected

you're expecting

I'm expected

Burning Buildings - Elton John

It used to be a sweet sensation

No price too high for love

Now I pay for this bitter taste

And the price is not enough

Such cruel sport for your kicks

Such hard knocks on my heart

How long before the pain ends

Tell me where living starts

And lovers leap off burning buildings

Waking up on a sky high wire

Desperation leaves us clinging

On the edge of a house on fire

Lovers leap off burning buildings

Live our life on borrowed time

Every flame that ever moved you

Touched your lips but never mine

Lovers leap off burning buildings

No room for conversation

Cold stares and angry words

Fall in pieces from our faces

We read do not disturb

Some lovers just go hungry

Others beg for just a bite

You use me under pressure

To whet your appetite

Bob Dylan - To Ramona

Ramona, come closer,

Shut softly your watery eyes.

The pangs of your sadness

Shall pass as your senses will rise.

The flowers of the city

Though breathlike, get deathlike at times.

And there's no use in tryin'

T' deal with the dyin',

Though I cannot explain that in lines.

Your cracked country lips,

I still wish to kiss,

As to be under the strength of your skin.

Your magnetic movements

Still capture the minutes I'm in.

But it grieves my heart, love,

To see you tryin' to be a part of

A world that just don't exist.

It's all just a dream, babe,

A vacuum, a scheme, babe,

That sucks you into feelin' like this.

I can see that your head

Has been twisted and fed

By worthless foam from the mouth.

I can tell you are torn

Between stayin' and returnin'

On back to the South.

You've been fooled into thinking

That the finishin' end is at hand.

Yet there's no one to beat you,

No one t' defeat you,

'Cept the thoughts of yourself feeling bad.

I've heard you say many times

That you're better 'n no one

And no one is better 'n you.

If you really believe that,

You know you got

Nothing to win and nothing to lose.

From fixtures and forces and friends,

Your sorrow does stem,

That hype you and type you,

Making you feel

That you must be exactly like them.

I'd forever talk to you,

But soon my words,

They would turn into a meaningless ring.

For deep in my heart

I know there is no help I can bring.

Everything passes,

Everything changes,

Just do what you think you should do.

And someday maybe,

Who knows, baby,

I'll come and be cryin' to you.

Rainy Day Man-James Taylor

What good is that happy lie

All you wanted from the start was to cry

It looks like another fall

Your good friends they dont seem to help at all

When youre feeling kind of cold and small

Just look up your rainy day man

It does you no good to pretend child

Youve made a hole much too big to mend

And it looks like you lose again, my friend

Call on your rainy day man

Now rainy day man he dont like sunshine

He dont chase rainbows

He dont need good times

Grey days rolling

Then you'll see him

Empty feeling

Now you need him

All those noble thoughts they just dont belong

You cant hide the truth with a happy song

And since you knew where you stood all along

Just look up your rainy day man

Now simple pleasures they all evade you

Store-bought treasures? none can save you

Look for signs to ease the pain

Ask again

Go on and pray for rain

It looks like another fall

Your good friends they dont seem to help at all

When youre feeling kind of cold and small

Just look up your rainy day man

All I need to do is look up my rainy day man

Now what good is that happy lie

All you wanted from the start was to cry

Muzzle - The Smashing Pumpkins

I fear that i am ordinary, just like everyone

to lie here and die among the sorrows

adrift among the days

for everything i ever said

and everything i've ever done is gone and dead

as all things must surely have to end

and great loves will one day have to part

i know that i am meant for this world

my life has been extraordinary

blessed and cursed and won

time heals but i'm forever broken

by and by the way...

have you ever heard the words

i'm singing in these song?

it's for the girl i've loved all along

can a taste of love be so wrong

as all things must surely have to end

and great loves will one day have to part

i know that i am meant for this world

and in my mind as i was floating

far above the clouds

some children laughed i'd fall for certain

for thinking that i'd last forever

but i knew exactly where i was

and i knew the meaning of it all

and i knew the the distance to the sun

and i knew the echo that is love

and i knew the secrets in your spires

and i knew the emptiness of youth

and i knew the solitude of heart

and i knew the murmurs of the soul

and the world is drawn into your hands

and the world is etched upon your heart

and the world so hard to understand

is world you can't live without

and i knew the silence of the world
