Lyrics

Fish

Written By: BONNIE PINK

Fish É
strolling intown
up and down
cross the moon so easily
like a shooting star

Fish É
seem to know
where to go
lead me to the garden of oblivion
before the sun goes down

Fish É
swim to survibe
not scared to dive
I wish I could see what you see
when IÕm in the dark

Fish É
take me take me take me
to the turquoise fantasy

I just want you to be happy

Written By: BONNIE PINK

I just want you to be happy
I might not be the one to make you though
It hurts so much to see you down
I just want you to feel better

I just want you to be happy
I might not be the right one, who knows
It hurts so much to see you decay
I just want you to find the way out
I just want you to be happy
You might not feel like talking to me
But it hurts so much to hear the silence
I'd rather hear you scream from your soul

You never tell me what the pain is for
You let your heart be stuck in the fall
You don't have to share
Just come out of a cage
Then the sun will banish your fears

I just want you to be happy
I might not be the one to make you though
It hurts so much just to be around you
When you are too hard on yourself
I just want you to know
I just want you to know
I just want you to know
that it's okay to be happy in the fall

I just want you to be
I just want you to feel
I just want you to be
I just want you to be happy

Forget me not

Written By: BONNIE PINK

Listen to my plan to call him back
'cause I'm very bored
Things seem so simple
except love and what Heaven knows
But I know the trick of finding him
even in a beehive

Hackneyed phrases can be used today
as downers
Deadly weapon and words are the same for lovers
you'll see
I know the magic of making him
miss me at the daylight

Under the bed
I hid forget me not
everywhere
he can smell forget me not
forget me not

If he forgets me,
am I supposed to forget him too?
He never promises me
so I can never blame what he'll do
I hope the scent of forget me not
will make him really uptight

tu tul tu
tu tul tu tu tu...

Under the bed
I hid forget me not
everywhere
he can smell forget me not
forget me not
