Consider me Melissa Etheridge, meets K.D. Land, meets Willie Nelson, meets Tiny Tim. Yes I said Tiny Tim! Honestley I am just a lyricist, I do write music, sing, and play the rockinist tunes on the ukulele! But really, I am just a lyricist and songwriter.

Biography

I am 35 years old, I have been singing, playing, and writing since I was nine. I love all kinds of music and as such I am influenced by all kinds of music. You name it I dig it. Instumental, country, pop, rock, on and on. Janis Joplin though, she is my hero,....well, her and Willie Nelson.

Lyrics

Naked

Written By: Jo-Lee Venrick

"NAKED"
I'VE TRIED TO DRINK YOU AWAY
THINK YOU AWAY
AND EVEN SINK YOU AWAY IN ANTOTHERS ARMS.
I'VE TRIED TO WALK YOU AWAY
TALK MYSELF AWAY
AND SCREAM YOU AWAY IN THE DARK.
I'VE CUSSED YOU AWAY
TOSSED YOU AWAY
AND CONVINCED MYSELF I AM BETTER APART.
I'VE TRIED TO DROWN YOU AWAY
COVER YOU IN DENIAL AND LAUGHTER
CONVINCE MYSELF THAT I AM LIVING HAPPILY EVER AFTER.
I'VE REBUKED YOU
HATED YOU
AND IGNORED YOU ALL TOGETHER.
I HAVE DAMNED YOU
PRAYED FOR YOUR RETURN
AND WONDERED HOW YOU COULD FORSAKE ME
ASKING GOD TO TAKE ME
PRAYING FOR THIS HEARTACHE TO END.
NOW AFTER ALL THIS TIME AND ALL THE TEARS
HERE I AM, NAKED.
BENT BUT NOT BROKEN
NAKED.
I STILL KNOW HOW TO JOKE
BUT I AM RAW
AND BRUISED
BROKEN UP AND USED
AND SHAKEN
AND NAKED.
I HAVE WONDERED WHERE IT ALL WENT SO WRONG
WONDERED HOW WE MADE IT FOR SO LONG
WONDERED HOW AFTER ALL THE YEARS, THE LAUGHTER AND THE TEARS
YOU COULD LET GO.
AND I HAVE WONDERED IF YOU EVEN KNOW
I AM SCARED AND SCARRED
TATTERED AND WORN
I AM GUN SHY
BUT NOT AFRAID TO DIE
FOR I KNOW I HAVE SURVIVED THE WORST.
I HAVE HATED YOU
AND MISSED YOU
AND LONGED AGAIN TO KISS YOU.
I HAVE PRAYED TO NEVER SEE YOU AGAIN
AND BEGGED GOD FOR YOU TO CALL.
I HAVE BEEN AS LOW AS I NEVER KNEW I COULD GO.
BUT NOW I AM RISING
AND SURVIVING
AND YES, I AM STILL NAKED.
BENT BUT NOT BROKEN
NAKED
BUT I STILL KNOW HOW TO JOKE.
I AM RAW AND BRUISED
BROKEN UP AND USED
AND SHAKEN
AND NAKED
I HAVE LONGED FOR YOUR RETURN
YOUR LOVE AND YOUR KISSES
I USED TO GUESS BUT I'VE LEARNED
JUST HOW MUCH I MISS IT.
YOUR LAUGHTER, YOUR TOUCH,
YOUR FRIENDSHIP AND YOUR LOVE
WITHOUT IT
I AM NAKED.
BUT I WILL PUT ON MY CLOTHES AND DRESS FOR SUCCESS
I WILL SURVIVE AND PERSERVEERE
AND HOLD YOU ALWAYS DEAR
AND NEVER FORGET WHAT IT FEELS
TO BE NAKED
FORGOTTEN BUT NOT FORSAKEN
SHAKEN
SCATTERED BUT NOT BREAKING
TORN APART
AND NURSING A BROKEN HEART
BUT LIVING
FORGIVING
AND NAKED
