Black Eyed 04:40
Black Eyed my friend That's how your days will always end I'm sorry You know you can get up and go Why you waste your time I just don't know Just leave babe Cause slowly your losing your mind As your heart is breaking Your melting mine Don't stay here I am burning Don't leave me alone again And this love is turning And may go away my friend Things may be good over the rainbow Black Eyed my friend Take a look around at your dead end And the walls are growing Don't cool off in the boiling water I've got a bag full of love right here And you can have it I am burning Don't leave me alone again And this love is turning And may go away my friend Things may be good over the rainbow I suppose you know I suppose you know I need you so And why are you so cold You're so so cold to let me go Things may be good over the rainbow (2x) Chorus

Emotional 03:20
Do you ever feel like the angel on your shoulder forgot all about you And do you ever feel like the girl that you once were was stolen from you purse Tell me do you want a lady soldier to fight on your battle grounds for you I'm telling you baby don't apologize for being the sweetest one And please oh please don't punish me For being Emotional And please oh please don't punish me For being Emotional Sock it to me darling I feel your frustration as my tears come tumbling down And kick me out of this moment as you yell in my face for expressing myself so deeply Your losing me so gently with your howling at night for being the freest one And please oh please don't punish me For being Emotional And please oh please don't punish me For being Emotional

Give me what I want now Give me what I want now Life proves to be strange and Love proves to be careless that's the way it is and that's the way it's been Heading to the skyline Maybe the truth is hidden there I need to know cuz I'm heading for a breakdown I need someone to take down, take down I'm heading for a breakdown I need someone to take me down And I'm just a baby who is stuck in the dirt Do you think you could pull me out and Get rid of all the hurt Don't mean to get in your way Mother Nature But it appears that I, I'm in danger All the things that you gave me Heartache and pain led up to this now And I understand how And please know that I forgive you Do you forgive me too Mother dear What happened here? I'm heading for a breakdown I need someone to take down, take down I'm heading for a breakdown I need someone to take me down And I'm just a baby who is stuck in the dirt Do you think you could pull me out and Get rid of all the hurt Don't mean to get in your way Mother Nature But it appears that I, I'm in danger And though you're a sky away I'm never too far away from you And I'm just a baby who is stuck in the dirt Do you think you could pull me out and Get rid of all the hurt Don't mean to get in your way Mother Nature But it appears that I, I'm in danger

The Day 03:52
Cold is the color of this bed And I heard every word that you said But nothing really will change for me I still want you And on this day I will find you And I will say May I love you Beat on my drum 1, 2, 3 And carry a pocket full of me So forever and ever I may stay I still want you And on this day I will find you And I will say May I love you And you'll turn around Laughing at me But don't make a sound You still love me I stil want you Clocks are ticking I'm still breathing So I still want you Oh and on this day I will find you Oh and I will say May I love you

Sad Affair 04:20
I'm decomposing this love for my mister I'm crawling on the floor I need so much more And it's a sad sad lair He keeps it cold in there He don't know it He don't show it I am trembling Need assembling It's a Sad Affair What went wrong And I don't care I'll play along It's cold in there So let me out You want real love He's keeping secrets that could kill me I need a savior now baby won't you heal me He played a good good game And I'll never be the same It's a Sad Affair What went wrong And I don't care I'll play along It's cold in there So let me out You want real love You say the thrill is gone So take your bullshit with you May get along someday Like hand holding paper mache There's so much loving air You're carrying like a burden Don't need to feel this way It's a Sad Affair What went wrong And I don't care I'll play along It's a Sad Affair What went wrong And I don't care I'll play along It's cold in there So let me out You want real love

You don't own me and you never show me You won't hold me and you never sold me What do you think of my tears dear You look at them like souvenirs here And I feel I'm always in your way And I feel you may leave me someday And I feel I'm holding onto nothing And I feel with out you I'll be something I am wishing that you could listen And maybe when the sun falls I won't want you to call Why can't I be a grown girl And why can't I see another world And why can't I love myself Just like you love yourself And I feel I'm always in your way And I feel you may leave me someday And I feel I'm holding onto nothing And I feel with out you I'll be something You have no idea What I've sacrificed for you And in the end it's all my fault I never should have focused on you And I feel I'm always in your way And I feel you may leave me someday And I feel I'm holding onto nothing And I feel with out you I'll be something

No matter how much you know me No matter how much you say you love me No matter how much I appear that I'm with you No matter how hard I try I still can't trust you I've received all the signs and erased the visions I've been given your lines but muted the meaning These months pass me by and still I've failed to learn That after all we've been through I still can't hear you But oh I'm so sorry Because this life has made me cruel And after all of that I realize Especially you No matter how much you come to my room No matter how much you see me as a good friend No matter how much I appear to love you No matter how hard I try I still can't trust you You handed me your selfishness and I threw it all away You've given me heartache disguised as tough love but it's pain Tears upon my pillow I hate to say it but i'd rather live this life alone But oh I'm so sorry Because this life has made me cruel And after all of that I realize Especially you Stay or go But either way it's hard to know That you and me Will always be the tide below Pulling me in Pulling me in Pulling me in But oh I'm so sorry Because this life has made me cruel And after all of that I realize Especially you
