Lyrics

Damn You

Written By: Alison Block

I didn't ask you to come into my life and sweep me off of my feet.
I didn't ask you to hold my hand. I didn't ask you to kiss so sweet.
But you did. So I fell. And now my living hell
Is knowing you moved on.
See I thought things were good
Guess I misunderstood
'Cause I woke up and you were gone.

So damn you, for love.
And damn you, for hate.
And damn you for lifting me up so high there was no place I could escape
And damn you, for good.
And damn you, for bad.
And damn you for all of the memories I wish I did not have.
And damn you.

I believed all the words you spoke, felt a thrill when you whispered my name.
Oh, how you welcomed me into your world--should have known it was part of the game.
That you play when you need
A woman's company
To help you through the night.
Now I feel so confused.
I feel angry and used.
I just want to go on with my life.

So damn you, for love.
And damn you, for hate.
And damn you for lifting me up so high there was no place I could escape
And damn you, for good.
And damn you, for bad.
And damn you for all of the memories I wish I did not have.
And damn you.

(instrumental)

Oh I think you're immature, insincere, insecure
And I'm sorry if that sounds cruel.
But you knew from day one
You were leading me on and I resent being your fool.

So damn you, for love.
And damn you, for hate.
And damn you for lifting me up so high there was no place I could escape

And damn you, for love
Damn you for hate
And damn you for being
So damn great
And damn you for the good and the bad stuff too
And damn you for the hell you put me through

(chorus – repeat out)

Fairy Tales

Written By: Alison Block

This is such a new place for me
Unfamiliar territory
I’m still not sure if I belong here or not
But I want to give this my best shot

All I ask is that you’re patient
I can sometimes say things that I regret

(chorus)
Cause I’m not perfect but I’m tryin’
I’m in love and I am frightened
I’m not used to holding somebody’s hand
I lost control here and it scares me
Fairy tales did not prepare me
For the way it really feels to love a man.

I know they’re days you think I’ve lost my mind
You’re probably not too far off sometimes
I loose control of my emotions it’s true
But please don’t question my devotion to you

All I ask is you forgive me
I can make things harder than they should be.

Cause I’m not perfect but I’m tryin’
I’m in love and I am frightened
I’m not used to holding somebody’s hand
I lost control here and it scares me
Fairy tales did not prepare me
For the way it really feels to love a man.

It never ceases to astound me
How good I feel when you’re around me
How your smile can drive me wild
Make me feel giddy like a child
I won’t deceive you
Baby I really need you

You know me better than I know myself
My heart belongs to you and no one else
Oh I’m not good at being vulnerable
But I hope my attempts are honorable

All I ask is that you’re honest
Tell me your needs and I’ll do my best

Cause I’m not perfect but I’m tryin’
I’m in love and I am frightened
I’m not used to holding somebody’s hand
I lost control here and it scares me
Fairy tales did not prepare me
For the way it really feels to love a man. (2X)

Morning After

Written By: Alison Block

It’s the morning after
Can’t find my underwear.
I threw them off last night and they landed I know not where
Cause it was dark
And hell, I was wasted
But those were the best martinis I have ever tasted.

Well it’s the morning after
And I’m lying in his room
And I need to sneak out
He’ll be waking up soon
And I don’t want to play that morning after game.
Don’t quite know what to say.
Don’t quite remember his name.

It’s the morning after
And all my make-up’s on
It looked good last night
Now it looks like I’m on heroin
My hair’s a mess. Kind of stuck in dreads
And I wonder if he noticed I forgot to shave my legs?

Well it’s the morning after
And I’m still at his place
And God how I wish I could just wash my face cause
I have to make that long walk of shame.
Don’t know what street I’m on.
Still can’t remember his name.

Well things last night are still a little hazy.
Stuck in an alcohol fog.
All I know is last night I went home with my prince charming!
This morning I woke up with a frog.

It’s the morning after.
Wearing my 6 inch shoes.
People at Starbucks think that I’m a prostitute
Well if I were than at least I’d have been paid.
Oh well, what the hell? At least I got laid!

Well it’s the morning after
And I’m feeling kind of ill.
Did I or didn’t I forget to take my pill?
Well I had a good time, no I really can’t complain.
But I’d feel less slutty if,
I could remember his...
What the hell was his?
Don’t give a damn about his name.
