Lyrics

I Hate Everyone

Written By: Daniel Ouellette

Never will I speak again
Never will I open my mouth
Never do I have to say anything
Just give me a pen
and I will write it all down
to throw notes to the wind
I am breaking down
My book is my only friend
with the words that make no aural sound

Never will I say what I think
Never will I believe what you say
Never do I have to express myself
with my mouth
and I will print neat
to throw words to the wind
I am breaking down
My speech is obsolete
with the letters that meet no oral sound

Only disappointment will make open my mouth
The tears and the regret and the things I won't forget
I hate everyone underlined in my own painful way

The Wanting

Written By: Daniel Ouellette

I know you want me
I can tell by the way you stare at my suitcase
Wanting to know what I have inside

I know you want me
I can tell by the way you talk to my friends
Wanting to know which colors I like

I know you want me
You know you want me
A Desperate whisper is loudest
when you want

I know you want me
I can tell by the way you chase my automobile
Wanting to know if I will turn around

I know you want me
You know you want me
A Desperate whisper is loudest
when you want

Here it is
The hat I wore last night

I know you want me
You know you want me
A Desperate whisper is loudest
when you want

How I Love

Written By: Daniel Ouellette

I love your house
And all your furniture
May I stay here to play?
May I stay here to laugh?
I love your car
And all your features
May I sit here to ride?
May I stay here to drive?
There is nothing like a winning lottery ticket
There is nothing like a large bank account
I love your house
And all your furniture
May I stay here to play?
May I stay here to laugh?
There is nothing like a winning lottery ticket
There is nothing like a large bank account

Mon Fossoyeur

Written By: Daniel Ouellette

Les roses sont rouges
Les violets sont bleus
Le sucre est doux
juste comme mon fossoyeur

je ne peux pas croire
cette realité divine
le mouvement romantique de ton corps
Tu me fais un lit d'amour

Je vais dormir pour toujours
Ton visage dans mes reves
Je vais te rever pour toujours
Mon fossyeur doux

je ne peux pas croirecette bonne chance
les mots de passion de ta bouche
Tu me fais un lit de fleurs

Je vais dormir pour toujours
Ton visage dans mes reves
Je vais te rever pour toujours

Mon fossyeur doux
Les roses sont rouges
Les violets sont bleus
Le sucre est doux
juste comme mon fossoyeur

La nieve del norte

Written By: Daniel Ouellette

Está nevando
Una tempestad de la nieve
A mí me gusta comer
Los copos de la nieve
La nieve del norte
Te amo mucho
La nieve del norte
Es invierno para siempre
Está nevando
Una libertad del viento
A mí me gusta sentir
Los pedazos del aire
La nieve del norte
Te amo mucho
La nieve del norte
Es invierno para siempre
La nieve del norte
Te amo mucho
La nieve del norte
Es invierno para siempre
La nieve del norte

I want... (The Superman song)

Written By: Daniel Ouellette

I won’t waste my time
With Batman
he is stuck on Robin anyway
And I won’t waste my time
With Aquaman
He’s in love with a dolphin just the same
I want to kiss Superman
In his red cape
I want to kiss Superman
Feel his super human strength
I want to kiss Superman
In a telephone booth
I want to kiss Superman
I won’t waste my time
With the Incredible Hulk
He never says anything anyway
I won’t waste my time
With Wonder Woman
who wants to go that way
I want to kiss Superman
In his red cape
I want to kiss Superman
Feel his super human strength
I want to kiss Superman
In a telephone booth
I want to kiss Superman

The Moon Is Full Of Love

Written By: Daniel Ouellette

Everything is beautiful when you look inside your heart
And see the miracles and realize your luck
How beautiful the blood flows
Vampires and werewolves
The moon is full of love
Vampires and werewolves
Everything is sweet when you see inside your soul
And you face your fears and let go of haunting
How beautiful the blood flows
Vampires and werewolves
The moon is full of love
Vampires and werewolves
The moon is full of love

Go Cry Upstairs

Written By: Daniel Ouellette

I have always said that my favorite part of the circus
is when an elephant gets angry
and throws a clown across the tent
See how funny?

There is nothing that makes me more happy
than when the wind carries your toupee
and you are left standing bald and shining

I can't tell you how very pleased it makes me to see you
with your keys locked in the house
You stand in front all confused

I just want to be the king of all tragedy
A Prince of despair to rule over everything
broken go upstairs cry
I don't care

Go upstairs
I want to be the king of despair

Ghost In A Jar

Written By: Daniel Ouellette

Ooohhhh
Fresh as a flower could be
a nice little gift of spirituality
Every girl wants to explore
A metaphysical fanstasy
touch me through the crystal ball

Ooooohhhh
Charming as a prince might be
a special treat of afterlife imagery
Every boy wants to adore
A supernatural beauty
hold me down from the other side

No one can take away my apparition
It is a love that will take me far
There is nothing like my possession
I know right where you are
my beautiful ghost in a jar
and jealous will be my friends

Heaven is right here in my living room
Heaven is is in my house
I bid the most on ebay
and now I have a ghost

No one can take away my apparition
It is a love that will take me far
There is nothing like my possession
I know right where you are
my beautiful ghost in a jar
and jealous will be my friends
