Lyrics

what it's about

Written By: Marlene Schaff

Stand up straight
They tell you it’s when you least expect it
You gotta change your perspective
That’s all what it’s about

It’s gettin’ late
Get out there and put on your best outfit
You cant just stay there out of it
That’s all what it’s about

Somehow I got upset
Can’t help myself, will someone
Rip my heart out
Put out your cigarette
Burn down my pain, will someone
Rip my doubts out

Today you’re not alone and it’s all right
I’m still there being Miss all fright
And that’s all what it’s about

From my seat
I see the public displays of affection
Feeling love from the movie section
That’s all what it’s about

Can’t feel no heat
I locked myself inside this frozen room
Where no feelings could ever bloom
That’s all what it’s about

Somehow I got upset
Can’t help myself, will someone
Rip my heart out
Put out your cigarette
Burn down my pain, will someone
Rip my doubts out

What the hell made me think it would be easy
Why do I suck so much that I cant feel a little cheesy

Staring in the mirror
Wonderin’ if I’m ever
Gona start feelin’ this damn fever

Somehow I got upset
Can’t help myself, will someone
Rip my heart out
Put out your cigarette
Burn down my pain,
Will someone
Rip my doubts and tear my fears out.

LULU

Written By: Marlene Schaff/Tiffany Cotten

Sweet girl, she comes around
The heads spin and the liquor spills
She’s soaking every sound
Beauty queen on her ten inch heels
She’s bragging on her ground
Like a pill who’d give you the chills

Lulu’s a lunatic
She doesn’t know what NO means
She can get frantic
And I laugh watching her scenes

Lulu shakes that sweet thing
Lulu drags you around town
Lulu is the real thing
She can make the moon come down

Lulu shakes that sweet thing
Lulu’s got the townqueen crown
Lulu thinks she’s somethin’
She can make the moon come down

2- Sweet girl time goes by
If you can’t get it all, girl you gotta try
Don’t make it all a sigh

Sweet girl she comes back down
Nobody there to watch her now
Stoned queen for a small town
A noone on a no way out
Deep lines from all her frowns
She got dosed she don’t know how

Lulu’s a lunatic
She doesn’t know what NO means
Yeah she can get frantic
And I cry watching her scenes

Lulu shakes that sweet thing
Lulu drags you around town
Lulu is the real thing
She can make the moon come down

Sweet girl time goes by
If you can’t get it all, girl you gotta try
Don’t make it all a sigh

You broke your heels girl now you know how it feels
Guess they didn’t tell ya it could be such a pain in the thrills

Sweet girl she comes around
The head spins and the liquor spills
She’s soakin’ every sound
Like a pill who’d give you the chills
Like a pill who’d give you the chills

CHORUS

SANDCASTLES

Written By: Marlene Schaff

I dont wanna go back
to the shadow that makes my fingers clean
I would rather be whack
‘Coz of the feeling that makes your fingers bleed

I buy a lot of nice things
just to fill the blanks inside of me
But it all feels like a jinx
Coz it aint makin me happy
No it aint makin me happy

WHY KEEP ON GOING
TO THE PLACE YOU KNOW YOU DONT WANNA GO
I WOULD BE THINKING
WHAT TIME LEFT YOU GOTTA BE WASTIN
WHY KEEP ON MAKIN
SAND CASTLES
YOU KNOW YOU’RE JUST GONNA BLOW
THERE AINT NO GOING BACK,
NO THERE AINT NO GOING BACK

I put on boots nice clothes
just to be waitin by the telephone
They smile and strike the pose
just before they kick me back where I can moan

I sit around like O. stone
Picture myself where I wanna be
But O. I aint in the zone
Coz I aint feeling so happy
No I aint feeling so happy

CHORUS

Linger on and pass the salt
Look I’m a star caught at a halt
I got the greatest looks in my dreams
I got the greatest voice in my screams
