Track Name: Clean & Sober
Clean & Sober

Darling you know I loved you something like a drug
Darling I twist and turn so in & out of love

And now I say I'm glad it's over
And I've never felt so clean and sober
But I've got a black & blue hangover
Darling for you, Darling I do

Darling you know you tell me tiny little lies
Darling you're such a pro with pretty little lines

And so you say you're glad it's over
And you've never felt so clean and sober
And you wish me luck and four leaf clovers
Darling you do, darling you do

I hope you die a fiery death
I love you. God, I need you yeah

I hope you choke
I wish you all the best for all the rest of your days

Darling I do...

And though I say I'm glad it's over
And I've never felt so clean and sober
I've got a black & blue hangover

And though I say I'm glad it's over
And I've never felt so clean and sober
I've got a black & blue hangover
I've got a black & blue hangover
I've got a black & blue hangover

Darling for you, darling I do
Track Name: Miss Halfway
Miss Halfway

You oughta hear the mirror in my house

You oughta fear her pretty, pretty mouth
Says I'm imperfect in every way:
"Miss Almost, Miss Maybe, Miss Halfway"

All my friends in L.A. got jobs on Melrose Place
I play Replacements songs and sigh-- a Waitress In The Sky
You oughta hear the things I've been thinking
You oughta swim in a heart that is sinking
You try to break me with all the things you say:
"Miss Almost, Miss Maybe, Miss Halfway"

Tony makes 60 K, invests in IRA's,
But I'm busy making paper airplanes out of resumes

But I'm gonna burn, I'm gonna shine and multiply
I'm gonna fill up the great divide
You'll never break me with all the things you say
"Miss Almost, Miss Maybe, Miss Halfway"

I'm gonna burn a pie now and then
And I'm gonna say the wrong things to your friends
I'm gonna burn and shine and multiply
And when I do, you're gonna see me in her eyes...

I'm gonna burn and shine and multiply
I'm gonna fill up the great divide
You'll never break me with all the things you say
Miss Almost, Miss Maybe, Miss Halfway
Miss Almost, Miss Maybe, Miss Halfway
Miss Halfway, Miss Halfway, Miss Halfway

Lovesick

A laundry list a mile long
I've got so much to do
No, I don't see that elephant standing in the room

And I keep telling everyone it's something like the flu
But I'm sick of feeling lovesick over you

You're gonna feel a little sting
A little like a prick
A heart without an arrow in it gonna make you sick

And I keep telling everyone it's something like the flu
But I'm sick of feeling lovesick over you

You say you love me, you'll never leave me standing all alone
Been 14 days and 50 drinks, I'm staring at the phone
What do you know?
What do you know?

I keep telling everyone it's something like the flu
They raised my rent, I lost my job—it's anything but you
You said you'd love me
You'd never leave me
Standing all alone

Where did you go?

'Cause I don't know...
No, I don't know...
Track Name: Space Monkey
Space Monkey

I've been on the ground, feet slowly draggin'

I've been on a bender for weeks but it feels like I'm on the wagon
You're out of range, high in the atmosphere
Cell phone's all but blown and it sounds like you gotta gotta get outta there

Houston, there's trouble here
I'm out of reach, out of love, and I'm mostly out of you
And just as I say the word impossible,
They tell me space monkeys landed on the moon

Not keeping track but the phone rang two days ago
My face is a map and the tears indicate I've got a ways to go

Houston, there's trouble here
I'm out of reach, out of love, and I'm mostly out of you
And just as I say the word unbearable,
They tell me space monkeys landed on the moon

"Are you happy or sad... or just PMS-ing?"
I know what he wants in his nonchalance…I know it's pressing.

Houston, I'm begging you...
To give a shout out to all the peeps in the posse, yo
O.K., for real: Could you relay a message fast
To the astronaut who wanted to know?

Yes, I do, I do believe in the sun
And I do, I do concede there is one
And you… do you believe in the one
Do you, do you do you believe...?
Track Name: Someday
Someday

And you don't ask about my birthday

Or my band-aid
Talk about being a bore
Let's talk about you some more

Well, I remember the time I would've sunk every dime and every hope into you
But now I'm well-rested and thoroughly invested in being through

And you say, someday, you'll be changed
And someday, someway…just have a little faith

Like a heavenly body sitting in a lobby or a plane going down,
I was wasting your time and you were wasting mine, going round and around

And you say, someday, you'll be changed
And someday, someway we'll have a little place

And you'll be a man of means
And I'll be someone far above in-between
But when I call you on the telephone
You apologize and put me right on hold
Talk about metaphor
Let's talk about you some more,
Let's talk about you some more,
Let's talk about...

You say someday you'll be changed
Someday someway we'll have a little faith
Someday someday you'll be changed
But sometimes someday is too hard to wait for...
Track Name: If It Feels Right
If It Feels Right

If it feels right, you should make a movie starring all of your friends

You should put a spotlight on the little things
If it feels right

If you feel low, you could fall asleep inside a silo
You could bring your knapsack and your roller skates, and run away
If it feels right

If It feels right, you should talk about it for a long time
In the morning on and on...

If you don't mind, you could figure out what makes a valentine
You could put a finger on what a makes a girl weak
When you fall for things
Like the new voice on your machine
And the way he says,
"It's me."
BACK TO TOP
Sociopath

I'm not much for dope or drink
And that's thanks to Dr. Shrink
But one thing I can't kick is I can't kick the man.

I'm pathologically addicted
To what you call a dickhead
Cheaters and liars seem to light my fire
And God I've gotta get clean.
So I did…Yeah, I did.

I took a bath with a sociopath
I took a bath with a sociopath
And I'll be sorry but for now I laugh about it, all night long

'Cause I like a little coffee with my cream
I like a little dirty with my clean
And my baby's really filthy
My baby's really somethin'
And my baby can dysfunction...

All night (he's really something)
All night (he can dysfunction)
All night long
Track Name: Someday My Prince Will Come
Someday My Prince Will Come

Someday my prince will come

Someday I'll find my love
And how thrilling that moment will be
Whent the prince of my dreams comes to me

He'll whisper, "I love you"
And steal a kiss or two
And away to his castle we'll go
To be happy forever I know

Some day when spring is here
We'll find our love anew
And the birds will sing
And wedding bells will ring
Someday when my dreams come true
BACK TO TOP
Fantasy

You only come out late at night
Just like an animal in the moonlight
You're wrapped up tight in mystery
You've got me so fogged in that I can't even see

My friends say I'm caught up in fairy tales and dreams
And I confess, with you it feels like make-believe
'Cause you're a fantasy, you're just a fantasy, yeah
You're a fantasy, Darling to me
Do I really think I see you in the moonlight?
Really wanna hold you ‘cause it feels right
Really wanna see you tonight.

Last night I swore I heard you call my name
Crawled through my window, took my hand and stole me away
Went to the drive-in, speeding like a runaway train
Woke up and smelled your scent in the morning rain

Chorus

Woke up this morning, couldn't get you out of my head
I tried to call you up but the number was dead
Drove by your place, convinced that you'd still be around
But I saw a wrecking ball just tore your house down

Chorus

Really wanna see you tonight...
Really wanna see you, sleep tight.
Track Name: Morning's A Peach (Come Back To Bed)
Morning's a Peach (Come Back to Bed)

Morning's a peach/ Night is a pitbull

Either way I get a bite
My car reports to work at eight
My heart is several hours late

I can't keep up with the lovers on the street
I get my sunshine from the glow of my TV
I hear a waterfall is brimming in my eyes
You think I'm prettier, prettier when I cry
Oh me, oh my…come back to bed

Leave me alone/ Or get me some action
Either way something aint right

I can't keep up with singles on the scene
I get my kicks from a long-gone lonesome dream
I saw a waterfall was brimming in your eyes
You're almost prettier, prettier when you lie
Oh me, oh my…come back to bed
La la la la la la...
I say I'm prettier—and you're prettier--when you're mine
Oh me, oh my…come back to bed
Track Name: Krikor's Waltz Redux
Krikor's Waltz

Little did I know today,
Making wishes from light years away
That stars are far and falling's hard
And cold

Oh, won't somebody ski
Over to me
I fell hard

Star light, star bright
