Lyrics

Ugly

Written By: Clare Elizabeth Brown

(I hear this as a slow pop/ soul song sung by a girl pop band, e.g. Sugar Babes, but with one member taking the lead, and others forming a sort of backing chorus)

UGLY

I don’t understand how you can love me
when deep inside I feel so ugly.
You say I’m beautiful, cheerful and fun;
the truth is, because I love you too
I grab my books and run.

Backing vocals:
Girl, you gotta learn to love yourself,
you gotta learn to love yourself.

When you come close I get scared,
I hate my own skin.
Trapped and lost inside a well,
merge into my world, baby
and I go through hell.

Backing vocals:
Girl, you gotta learn to love yourself,
you gotta learn to love yourself.

Chorus:
I feel so ugly the devil’s in my hair
I feel so ugly I wish I wasn’t there.

I wished I’d kissed you and smiled,
given you my beauty with love and pride.
Instead of trying to be how I think you want me
I should just be me in front of you,
but I’m terrified.

I don’t mean to act and lie;
if you come close though, I’ll run
because I’m scared that if I’m true,
when you look into my eyes,
you’ll see what I feel in me
and that is: - ugly.

Backing vocals:
Girl, you gotta learn to love yourself,
you gotta learn to love yourself.

Chorus:
I feel so ugly the devil’s in my hair
I feel so ugly I wish I wasn’t there.

Backing vocals:
Girl, you gotta learn to love yourself,
you gotta learn to love yourself.

And I want to be true
I won’t lie to you.
I promise, I won’t lie to you.

Flickering Flames

Flickering Flames

The ghost of past flames
flicker across the wall
when I hear an echo
I hear their voices all.

There’s the love of a friend
who knew me inside out
the comfort of his presence
through all the ins and outs.

There’s the fancy of a singing teacher
when my heart skipped a beat
was completely out of time
and we never did quite meet.

There’s the lover in the night
witchy woman of the East
captured me her moth
and turned me into a beast.

(Please won’t you release me
won’t you let me go -
from the cave of history
to the sweat scented meadow?)

The ghost of past flames
flicker across the wall
when I hear an echo
I hear their voices all.

Dance With You

Written By: Clare Elizabeth Brown

(I hear this as a catchy and upbeat mainstream pop song, as could be sung by a girl band such as the Pussycat Dolls or the Sugar Babes).

Dance With You

Dance with you
Dance with you

Take a walk outside
You got to push on through
You may stumble, you may fall
But I’ll be there with you

Dance with you
Dance with you

Switch on the lights
Let them shine on you
Ruffle your feathers
I’m gonna dance with you

Dance with you
Dance with you

Take a walk outside
You got to push on through
Take the bus and ride
I’ll be there with you

Dance with you
Dance with you
