Lyrics

Cruel and Unusual

Written By: Amy Coffman

She's down town begging for a dollar
He jumps, into his limousine
Filthy rich, a shudder at the squalor
Everyday, the end seems near to me

Corridors are filled with voices
We strain our ears to comprehend
While the words they use are strangely foreign
We smile and nod as we pretend

Cruel and unusual, he never wants to hold her
cruel and unusual, no one ever told her
just how cruel and unusual, a lover and a lifetime can be.....

A penthouse suite and view are lovely
Gazing down upon the town
All alone in luxury he wonders
Why his inner world feels upside down

She knocks and enters full of wanting
Reserved and cool the welcome home
While they dine and watch the news in silence
Companionship where everyone's alone

Cruel and unusual, he never wants to hold her
Cruel and unusual, no one ever told her
Just how cruel and unusual, a lover and a lifetime can be....

Mister Man (You are a Mystery)

Written By: Amy Coffman

Mister man, you are a mystery
Understand, all through our history,
I want your affection
Is our love my own projection?

Mister man, you are a mystery man

Ambivalence does not amuse me
Nonchalance does not enthuse me
Yet every time you show you care
I'm thrilled about our love affair

Mister man, you are a mystery man

Mister man, let's change history
Mister man, it's no mystery
Intimacy is like magic
Ending it all seems so tragic

When you're warm today and cool tomorrow
Gradually, I feel sorrow
I long for your loving touch
I love you -- but not too much

Don't become history now
And we'll solve the mystery somehow
Be a real man for me now,
Mister man

He's an Earthquake

Written By: ©2007 Amy Coffman

He's an Earthquake

WHEN HE WALKS DOWN THE STREET THEY ALWAYS DOUBLE TAKE
WHENEVER HE'S NEAR - YOU KNOW I START TO SHAKE
HE WAKES ME UP JUST LIKE A COFFEE BREAK

OO-OO I'M WARNING YOU
DON'T MAKE MY MISTAKE
OOH OHH I'M WARNING YOU
(girlfriend) - HE'S AN EARTHQUAKE

HE MOVES RIGHT IN JUST LIKE A RATTLESNAKE
IF YOU WANNA KNOW THE TRUTH - FORGET THE WEDDING CAKE!
GO WITH HIM AND GUARANTEE YOUR HEART WILL BREAK

OO-OO I'M WARNING YOU
DON'T MAKE MY MISTAKE
OO-OO I'M WARNING YOU
(girlfriend) - HE'S AN EARTHQUAKE
chorus 1
HE'S AS HOT AS A BOLT OF LIGHTENING
HIS HURRICANE THRILL SO FRIGHTENING
ANGER LIKE THUNDER, REMORSE LIKE GENTLE RAIN
A STUPID GIRL LIKE YOU MIGHT LIKE A BEAST YOU GOTTA TAME
chorus 2 alt:
HE'S SHINES LIKE AN ARCHETYPAL HEROE
HIS INNER CORE OF LOVE IS READING ZERO
YOU'RE JUST ANOTHER NUMBER ON THE RICHTER SCALE TODAY
WHEN HE FINALLY CRACKS - HE'S GONNA BLOW YOU AWAY

it's Amy! (Telephone Tag)

Written By: Amy Coffman

it's Amy!(Telephone Tag)

Its Amy on Sunday
I just flew in from St. Tropez
Just got your message
I'd love to get together someday

I'm texting, on Tuesday
I'm tied up in a meeting in L.A.
Maybe you're busy
Please send me an answer
anyway

Telephone Tag a game we play
Talking through machines
information one way
Virtual you will never never do
Internet’s a drag when all I want is you

It's already Wednesday
I dreamed you took an airplane to Bombay
Tell me I'm dreamin'
Or I am gonna have a blue day

It's me dear on Thursday
your e-mail made my worries melt away
I'd love to have dinner
I know a fun and trendy hide-away

Telephone Tag a game we play
Talking to machines
On the information highway
Virtual you will never never do
Internet’s a drag when all I want is you

It's Amy on Friday
Confirming our dinner where and when
I long to be near you
So we may speak in person again

Telephone Tag a game we play
Talking to machines
On the information highway
Virtual you will never never do
Internet’s a drag when all I want is you

Fabulous Earrings

Written By: Amy Coffman

ON THE LEFT OR ON THE RIGHT
WEAR TWO OR MORE OF COURSE IF YOU LIKE
IF YOU WANT TO MEET PLENTY OF MEN TONIGHT
WEAR EARRINGS, FABULOUS EARRINGS

A READHEAD OR BRUNETTE
DRIVIN AN ALFA OR A CORVETTE
YOU HAVEN'T SEEN MUCH ACTION YET
TRY EARRINGS, FABULOUS EARRINGS

EVERY BOY WHO WANTS TO MEET YOU
NEEDS AN OPENING LINE TO SAY
HE'LL ASK YOU WHERE YOU GOT THOSE THINGS
YOU'LL MEET TONS OF HUNKS THE EASY WAY

IN JEANS OR GOLD LAME
BUSINESS SUIT, CONSTRUCTION BOOTS, OR LINGERIE
THE DUDES YOU MEET WILL HAVE TO SAY
THOSE EARRINGs! CHECK OUT THOSE EARRINGS!!

WAY UP OR WAY DOWNTOWN
THERE'LL ALWAYS BE PLENTY OF GUYS AROUND
AS LONG AS YOUR FLESH IS PIERCED AND BOUND
WITH EARRINGS, FABULOUS EARRINGS!!

Island of Desire

Written By: Amy Coffman (aka Amy Camus)

Stranded on unknown sands on a mapless land of my own
Open horizons gorgeous skies, langorous days alone
Until the evening you sailed by upon a restless sea
Stars in scorpio, destiny, brought you here to me

You are the first one to find me
The first one to discover me
The first one to reach me
on my island of desire

The beat of my drum
The sounds of the night are calling you to my side
This bay is deep and blue, this bay will harbor you
Fated winds will be your guide

You are the first one to find me
The first one to discover me
The first one to reach me
on my island - my island of desire
