Lyrics

Fish Bowl

Written By: Carolyn Luder

VERSE 1
It’s 9 o’clock I check the clock
Just to see if something’s different, oh
I have a coffee call a friend
But it don’t end this hell I’m in

Oh you, took the first train out of here
For, bigger and better things

CHORUS*
I’ve been swimming in circles
Doing the same things I did yesterday
I’ve been swimming in circles
Seeing the same things I saw yesterday
And you’re, out in the big wide sea
I hope that you’re thinking of me, back home

VERSE 2
Nothing feels the way it used to now that you’re gone
I hear a knock at the door, I think it’s you
Then I remember that you’re long gone

Oh you, said you needed better than living and dying here

CHORUS*

BRIDGE
I’m just a little fish swimming in the sea
And I hope that one day you’ll swim right back to me

I’ve been swimming in circles
Doing the same things I did yesterday
I keep swimming oh oh, I keep swimming oh (little fish, this little fish)
I keep swimming oh oh, I keep swimming oh (just a little fish, little fish)
Oh oh oh….. just a little fish oh oh

Stalker

Written By: Carolyn Luder

VERSE 1:
Friday night, feeling alright
Got a burning in my head and a hunger in my soul
Looking for love in all the wrong places
Walking around seeing blurry faces and there you were
A few tequila shots at a bar in town
We’d both loosened up and you touched my hand when you talked to me
You kissed me up against the wall in the darkness
You drove my tequila sorry ass right home

Never met someone like you before
If you leave me I’ll be begging for more
I got something to say…hey

CHORUS*
Can I be your stalker?
Can I call you at 3am just to say hello
Cause I know that you and I were meant to be together for…ever
I’ll call your phone 50 times or more and
I’ll leave a message after the tone that says
Hello, how are you? It’s just me again
I’m just calling to see if you’re home
Can I be your stalker?

VERSE 2:
Sun comes up and the sun goes away
You make me smile when you come home and bring me flowers
I wake to see you there in the morning
I’m late for work every single day of the week

Never met someone like you before
If you leave me I’ll break down your door
I got something to say hey

CHORUS*

BRIDGE:
Now things are getting rough again
I’m starting to lose
Like an old piece of fruit I am starting to bruise
And I know that you won’t pick me from the bowl soon
Can I be your stalker?
Can I call you at 3 or 4 in the morning just to say hello?
Cause I know that you and I were meant to be together for…ever
I’ll call your phone 50 times or more and
I’ll leave a message after the tone that says
Hello, how are you? It’s just me again
I’m just calling to see if you’re home
I’m just calling to see if you’re all alone
I’m just calling to see if you’re home

Gas man

Written By: Carolyn Luder

VERSE 1
I sent you a letter; it would’ve sound better, coming from mouth
It said that I’m leaving; you better believe it, I’m heading off South
Ain’t no room left in my heart, now that we are torn apart
Ain’t no sense in hanging round
Tears will fall, but in the end, you’ll find that you’re over it all

I promised to catch you when you fell out of love with me
But how do I catch a shooting star

CHORUS*
Hey Mr Gas man
I’m running on empty
Can you fuel my fire?
Cause we haven’t had a lotta’ rain round here
And I’m running on loves’ desires
Like the wind through your hair, I can feel you you’re there
Even though you’re not around
If I drop a penny to the ground
You better believe, it’s gonna make a sound

VERSE 2
How do you let go of letting go?
How can you say you’re sure?
When you never really know
What if we’re waiting for the right time?
When our dear friend time has some other ideas

And I promised to catch you when you feel outta’ love with me
But how do I catch a shooting star

CHORUS*

BRIDGE
But what if I can’t let go?
What if I can’t let go?
What if I bought tickets to a one man show?
Oh what if I can’t let go
What if I can’t let go?
I’m finding it hard to let go
I think I bought tickets to a one man show
I’m trying, I’m asking you
I’m trying…I just need some rain

CHORUS
Cause we haven’t had a lotta’ rain round here anymore
Like the wind through you’re hair I can feel you you’re there
Even though you’re not around
You still make a sound

Dirty Laundry

Written By: Carolyn Luder

VERSE 1:
I’m going to hang out my dirty laundry today
I don’t care what the neighbours say
Let them laugh let them look
I’m gonna take all the chances I never took before
Gonna’ learn all the rules and break em’ hey

Cause lately I’ve been full of my own dirty laundry
And it’s time to set myself clean

CHORUS:*
I take one step forward and ten steps back
I’m coming off the rails yeah I’m finding a new track
And I don’t know where I set out to
But I like where I’m going now, oh I like where I’m going now

VERSE 2:
I’m not gonna say No! Oh ever again
I’m gonna be a better lover, gonna make a better friend
And if I get caught up in the does and musts and can’t wait till tomorrows
I’ll just…oh…breathe

Cause lately I’ve been full of my own dirty laundry
And it’s time to set myself free

CHORUS*

BRIDGE:
Ooooh, here’s comes that train again
Ooooh, it’s coming round the bend to pick me up again

CHORUS:
I take one step forward and ten steps back
I’m coming off the rails yeah I’m finding a new track
And I don’t know where I set out to
But I like where I’m going now, oh I like where I’m going now

Do you like where you are
Oh I like where I am now
Do you like where you’re going
I like where I’m going now
I like where I am now
I like where I am now
