Lyrics

Creep

Written By: Julie Winn

Creep on to me
when I don't even know,
your prescence continues to grow
when you pass me by
a star in your eye
you looked at me like a victim
a victim in mind
your tainted blood and venom
why do you bite?
why do you stalk and prey
and creep through the night?
Will I always walk there
when I want to walk here?
will I always fear danger
danger is near?

No, boundaries to embrace
No, no fear to face
A woman's space
it should be a safe place

Will I no longer walk bold and free?
Checking over my shoulders with anxiety,
this is what you created when you crept onto me
you took a part of my soul
my space, my will to walk free
now I feel like a prisoner
in my own neigborhood
you're a cold blooded creep
and I wish you would
get what's coming, some justice
like every creep should
have your space taken from you
keep the creeps out for good

No, boundaries to embrace
No, fear to face
A woman's space
it should be a safe place

Don't loose the street nights
learn to defend and put up a fight
save yourself and fight for your life
save your space don't loose the street nights.

People Behave

Written By: Julie Winn

Might not notice every day
in your typical, ritual ways
its existence washed away
through your ignorance
and I, try to justify why
so many pass it by
that it's no big deal
but it's real, so I try to tell you...

People Behave
this land, this land we must save
people Behave
this land, this land we must save

Far too much destruction
and far too much aggravation in all
who can't do a thing but involve
themselves in mindless pollution
so stop and think just for a second
do you appreciate what surrounds you?
than don't throw away
all the blessings
that come your way and...

People Behave
this land, this land we must save
people behave
this land, this land we must save

Things Change

Written By: Julie Winn

There is something about you
I don't want to loose
there is something I want to say
but I don't know what words to choose
can you save me
from what I fear the most
not knowing when or where
or how it all will be

I have a picture
and it's all up in my head
of what I want my life to be
and what it is instead

Things Change
and I see
this is how my life
it's gonna be

The things you don't expect in life
always seem to be
the things you love or the things you hate
they always come to me
I'm (twenty five) and (getting by)
through a world that's way too fast
slow down, my life
I want it all to last

I have a picture
and it's all up in my head
of what I want my life to be
and what it is instead

Things Change
and I see
this is how my life
it's gonna be
