Lyrics

Ghost Face

Written By: Geri X

How come,
how come you know
The outcome,
the outcome of it all.
Have you been,
have you been here before?
spent and lost all that you cared for.

You come here,
with no self esteem
broken down,
broken down it seems.
You've been strong
you've had better days
but weakness keeps calling your name.

How come,
how come you know
its all bad, its all been done before.
Have you seen,
have you seen yourself?
A ghost face hangin' by a thread.
So come here,
come here now
Tell me, what you crayin' about?
You're missin
you're missin the point,
its just you, you gotta be alone.

Modest Mouse

Written By: Geri X

Last night I couldn't fall asleep
thoughts of you were haunting me.
I didn't think that you'd remember me at all
I am so small...
so small.

So I just lay there and whispered to the sheets
" Im so tired you hear, I can't go to sleep"
And Im a modest mouse stuck between two walls
but no one calls...
no one calls.

So I give up, I give up you hear?
One thing I am good at is a disappear.
You don't know me, you don't know me and you don't wanna know
Im just too small...
Im just too small.

You don't know me
you don't know me and you don't wanna know
You don't know me
you don't know me and you don't wanna know
so I give up, I give up you hear?

Kiss on Both Eyelids

Written By: Geri X

like a kiss on both eyelids
your wonderful and safe
like a sailing ship in the middle
of a dead calm sea you're far away
like a moth to flame
i attatched myself to you
and i grew a spider
in my head and named it after you

i fell so hard
i fell so hard
i cant get up

im addicted to your sweetness
wont you give me some more
i want to be the one
to write your favorite song

You Can Have Me

My baby don't love me no no

My baby don't love me and I know

I traveled up the east coast
I traveled up the east coast
Ain't no thing cause

You can have me any way you want

My baby don't love me no no
My baby don't love me no no
My baby don't talk to me at all

Ive been alone so damn long
Ive been alone so damn long
said I'd quit drink in' but I won't

Im the kind that you get at every store
You can have me any way you want
You can have me any way you want
Yeah, you can have me any way you want.

My baby don't love me no no
My baby don't love me no no
My baby don't love me and I know.
