Express Yourself

Written By: Felicity DeCarle

Express Yourself

E-X-P-R-E-S-S
Express yourself Express yourself
E-X-P-R-E-S-S
Express yourself Express yourself
Express yourself

U-N-D-R-E-S-S
Undress yourself Undress yourself
U-N-D-R-E-S-S
Undress yourself Undress yourself
Undress youself

Take your clothes and give them to the bad kids
Paint yourself so they don't know what you did
Lean your body up against a white wall
And all your naked parts we'll see, and that's all

All these painted bodies lying on the sidewalk
Do they know what they want?
Do you know what you want?

Too much colour makes the eyes and brain fuzzy
Do you know what they want?
Are you in your own mind?

E-X-P-R-E-S-S
Express yourself Express yourself
E-X-P-R-E-S-S
Express yourself Express yourself
Express yourself

U-N-D-R-E-S-S
Undress yourself Undress yourself
U-N-D-R-E-S-S
Undress yourself Undress yourself
Undress youself

Sell your heart to gypsies in the market
You won't get your money but it's worth it
Count the wrinkles forming on your forehead
Floss your teeth before you head off to bed

E-X-P-R-E-S-S
Express yourself Express yourself
E-X-P-R-E-S-S
Express yourself Express yourself
Express yourself

U-N-D-R-E-S-S
Undress yourself Undress yourself
U-N-D-R-E-S-S
Undress yourself Undress yourself
Undress yourself

Express yourself
Express yourself

Hanging From The Rafters

Written By: Felicity DeCarle

Hanging from the Rafters

Verse 1:
F Am
It could take a day or two to pick a song to play for you
F Am
I could write a thousand words to sing but it'll never do
F Am
I have said so many things, I try but it's so hard to stay clean, you know
F Am
And promises are hard to keep when at the door they turn to go

Pre-chorus (1/2):
D C# Bm G
Take your cloud from off the top step
D C# Bm G
Jump but not to far you'll upset
D C# Bm G
The balance of our perfect being
D C# Bm G
The candyland you're only seeing

Chorus (1/2):
A G
Ooh oh oh oh oh ooh what time did you say it was?
A G
Turn it around, what time did you say it was?

Verse 2:

CD spinning every morning wake me up to see white light
You can show me anything as long as I'm the one who's always right
Everything you say to me can all add up to being so kind
But in the end you're only friend will tell you that you need to rewind
F Am
We cube the ice and cook the rice to perfection
F Am
We stand in line, bottle of wine for every section

Pre-chorus (full):

Take your cloud from off the top step
Jump but not to far you'll upset
The balance of our perfect being
The candyland you're only seeing
It's not right to hid my feelings
Finding shapes marked on the ceiling
Shiny faces here and after
Leave lights hanging from the rafters

Chorus (full):
Ooh oh oh oh oh ooh what time did you say it was?
Turn it around, what time did you say it was?

Verse 3 (partial):
F Am
Ooh it's so low, it's so low
F Am
Ooh it's so low

Pre-chorus (partial):
D C# B G
Shiny faces here and after
Leave lights hanging from the rafters

Chorus (full):
Ooh oh oh oh oh ooh what time did you say it was?
Turn it around, what time did you say it was?

More Than A Smile

Written By: Felicity DeCarle

More than a Smile

Look the way that you wanna look
Don't feel how I want you to feel
You say what I wanna hear
And only what I wanna hear isn't that

Laugh at times when I want to laugh
Argue back when I sound like I'm on crack
Don't take it back
Don't apologize if you're not sorry

Turning in circles again
Open the curtains old friend
Show me more than a smile once in a while
Show me more than a smile once in a while

I've said it all, everything stupid
And you know what I'm like
And I know what you're like, if you're hiding
Please yell right now

Turning in circles again
Open the curtains old friend
Show me more than a smile once in a while
Show me more than a smile once in a while

Oh hey, there you are
Oh hey, there you are, here
Oh hey, there you are
Oh hey, hey there you are

When paper planes have too many paperclips
They don't fly like they used to
I think I need a paperclip or two
Take them off, it's weighing us down, it's weighing us down

Turning in circles again
Open the curtains old friend
Show me more than a smile once in a while
Show me more than a smile once in a while

Oh hey, there you are
Oh hey, there you are, here
Oh hey, there you are
Oh hey, hey there you are
