Lyrics

not as pretty

Written By: nobody

Not as Pretty

I’m not as pretty as you think. I’m not as beautiful as everyone believes. I’ve got an edge that takes and takes and takes. I come and go and do just as I please.

I’m not so lovely to be loved. I set the standards but incessantly deride anyone who wants to be like me. You know it’s money but I say it’s pride. If I see it then I want it if I want it then I take it and I’m never never gonna change—You’re not as needy as I need.

I’m just so righteous when I’m right. I sneak into the crevices at night. I tie you up and tell you that it’s them but deep inside I’m churning out new lies and if I see it then I want it if I want it then I take it and you’d better watch your step or I’ll blow you all to kingdom come!

We’re not as pretty as you think. We’ve got desires and a thirst that can’t be filled. The worlds our cup we need to drink. We’re always hungry and we’re never full. And if we see it then we want it if we want it then we take it if we take it then we own it if we own it then we break it if we break it then we blame it if we blame it then we hate it if we hate it then we judge it and we’ll blow it all to kingdom come!

Someone like you

Someone Like You

I’ve been sitting here just, counting the days. I’ve been looking out in so many ways. And I’ve been holding out for someone, someone like you. And I’ve been missing out on things, things we might do.

The friends I used to have well they’ve all, all stepped aside. This place I’ve built for us is a place I can hide. It’s where I’ve been holding out for someone, someone like you. It’s where I’ve been planning all the things, things we might do.

We’ve been happy for so many years in my head. It’s a game I play with you, alone in my bed. And it’s you I’ve been holding here inside this hole in my heart. And it’s you I’ve been waiting for, someone to give me a start. And it’s you I’ve been holding here inside this hole in my heart. And it’s you I’ve been looking for, someone to give me a start.

but if it starts and I break down will you grow weary and not come around? And if it starts and I grow cold will you be wounded as we grow old? And if it starts will we collide and all of our anger turn us inside? What if it starts and everything fades and nothing is left it’s all swept away…

Unravelling

Written By: nobody

Unraveling

I can’t move my legs. I can’t see a thing before my eyes. I can’t stand the grate I’m lying upon. I can’t find a smoke, can’t even roll.

I can’t get no job. Can’t balance a camel or juggle my life. I can’t vote can’t plot sing or smile, or even walk my dog. Can’t find my keys—no gas in my car.

Only you offer me hope. Only you throw out a rope. Only you tempt me to dance. Only you dream we’re in France.

I can’t cope with life—don’t have a single friend who feels what I feel. Can’t enunciate this drama, eating me like flies—can’t take those little pills they want me to take for fear I might miss a single episode unraveling inside me…

Only you offer me hope. Only you throw out a rope. Only you home to me Bring. Only you tempt me to sing.

Song of Angels

Song of Angels

Someday soon, I’ll find me a place—so safe and warm. Someday soon, we won’t be lost—our feelings reborn. Someday soon, a child will play who’s never been sad. Someday soon, I’ll look at this life and not feel so bad, and not feel so bad.

Someday soon, this body won’t need to be strong. Someday soon—I’ll lie on my back and think of a song, and pass it along, and pass it along—and pass it along.

Someday soon, sorrow and pain won’t mean a thing. Someday soon, we’ll raise up one voice and sing the same song, and pass it along. We’ll sing the same song, and pass it along.
