LYRICS

they're all here... all the ones we wrote anyway. Maybe a few typos & innacuracies, but we figure it's okay if WE put up wrong lyrics. We kindof assumed that all our stuff was easy to understand on its own, but just in case... and please, don't send me hate mail about 'strippers & lesbians.' It's not ABOUT strippers & lesbians.

 

SHE'S MY FAVE [michael simmons, susan west]

she's my fave she's the color i look best in
she's my fave she's the stock i will invest in
when she's around i'm on my best behavior
she is all i want and she's my only flavor

she's my fave in the morning time
the sun comes up and begins to shine
oh yeah, oh yeah, she's my fave

got it bad for the girl from costa mesa
too bad she's always trying to replace ya
when i met her all i felt was magic
if i can't have her things may turn out tragic

she's my fave in the morning time
the sun comes up and begins to shine
oh yeah, oh yeah, she's my fave

she eats my fries i write bad rhymes
she gets me feeling insecure every time
will you ever be happy to be second in line
if i can't cedar then i'd rather pine

she's my fave in the morning time
the sun comes up and begins to shine
oh yeah, oh yeah, she's my fave

 

10 INCHES [susan west]

when I was a boy about nine years old
I was mistreated down to my soul
my mother would feed us only dinty moore stew
my father told me cats were dogs and that red was blue

now that explains everything
that explains it all
of why your such a dick to me
and why your 10 inches tall

when I was a girl about 12 years old
I was in the 7th grade at a jr. high function
I finally worked up the nerve to ask some boy to dance
he said because I was too good at math I didn't stand a chance

now that explains everything
that explains it all
of why your such a dick to me
and why your 10 inches tall

it's your fault I'm not functioning
and happy at my job
it's somebody's that I can't cope
and their gonna pay in a big way
I'm uptight oh it's something to do
it's your fault I'm not functioning
and you're gonna pay in a big way

sometime last week I was about 47 years old
I thought I'd died and gone to hell and not heaven
right before my eyes and for my gyno to see
she said I had three eggs left let's have them with tea

now that explains everything
that explains it all
of why your such a dick to me
and why your 10 inches tall

 

MY INTERNET LOVE SONG (TO YOU) [michael simmons]

i don't get out much anymore
never turn on my t.v.
gotta see my girl she's half way round the world
i flip on my pc
you know she's waiting there for me

gotta get connected right away
hope my provider works today
i click my modem i check my baud rate
icon to icon get me to irc
you know she's waiting there for me

caught in the net
tangled in the web that you weave
and if it weren't for my carpal tunnels, baby
you know i'd never leave
honey when i read your ascii smiles
my love goes out to you across the miles
this is my internet love song to you

i long to feel your bracketed embrace
wish i could only see your face
you make me laugh out loud
i'm walking on a cloud
could somebody rescue me
i need some online support you see

caught in the net
tangled in the web that you weave
and if it weren't for my carpal tunnels, baby
you know i'd never leave
honey when i read your ascii smiles
my love goes out to you across the miles
this is my internet love song to you

he never leaves he never goes
he never comes out to any shows
he never goes out he always stays in
we need to cure him of this addiction

caught in the net
tangled in the web that you weave
and if it weren't for my carpal tunnels, baby
you know i'd never leave
honey when i read your ascii smiles
my love goes out to you across the miles
this is my internet love song to you

 

DAT [michael simmons]

things you're doing lately girl they've been getting me down
saw your friend today she says you've been messing around
when i call you up every time there's no one home
yes it's Friday night again and i'm all alone

why you wanna go breakin' my heart like that
why you wanna go breakin' my heart like that oh no

when we got together our skies were blue
but it looks like stormy weather now for me and you
why you wanna go breakin' my heart like that
hey hey well well well well

if i pulled your trigger baby i apologize
why should i deserve these miserable tears in my eyes
you took the clean-x box can't even blow my nose
tried to watch t.v. you swiped all my videos

when we got together our skies were blue
but it looks like stormy weather now for me and you
why you wanna go breakin' my heart like that

you should've screamed when i said
that you don't look too well
you were on the downward slide but
how was i supposed to tell
you'd given up on what we had
left me feeling happy-sad
the tantrums and the stains
the pouting and the pain
what's a man supposed to do?

when we got together our skies were blue
but it looks like stormy weather now for me and you
why you wanna go breakin' my heart like that

OH POOR ME [susan west, s.j.u.k.]

when you broke my heart i really wasn't sorry
when you finally left the room it really made my day

oh poor me know i get to pick the restaurant
oh poor me now i get to watch t.v.
oh poor me now i get to do the dishes
oh poor me now i get to save the day
hey hey hey

some days are better than others
like when your friends still call

oh poor me know i get to pick the restaurant
oh poor me now i get to watch t.v.
oh poor me now i get to do the dishes
oh poor me now i get to save the day
hey hey hey

some days are better than others
like when your friends still call
and then i'm forced to tell them

that you died in terrible car accident didn't they read about it, it was in all the papers you were driving your car and changing cds in your automatic cd player which holds 500 cd's when suddenly you lost control of your car and you were killed in a head on collision by an orange 1974 ford pinto that had a bumper sticker that read don't hit me i have a full tank of gas it was so sad

oh poor me know i get to pick the restaurant
oh poor me now i get to watch t.v.
oh poor me now i get to do the dishes
oh poor me now i get to save the day
hey hey hey

someday
we'll laugh at this someday
When we're old & full of cancer
We'll wake up and have the answers
I don't know but I've been told
someday someday

 

HAIRCUT GIRL [michael simmons]

my eyesight got a little dim
i thought i might go for a trim
down to the local shop
try and even up my messy mop
i walked inside with time to kill
and waited patiently until
i heard her speak my name
and i knew i'd never be the same

but i've been so lonely
couldn't find my one and only
just tacky radio and hair spray girls
standing there among the curls

haircut girl
haircut girl
stole my heart when she did my do
sold me some shampoo too
haircut girl

(second verse, different from the first)
she guided me into her chair
and asked how I'd prefer my hair
'round the back and over the ears
or whatever pleases you my dear
my head was spinning all around
'till her water bottle cooled me down
she asked if I'd found someone
and suddenly my haircut was done

but i've been so lonely
couldn't find my one and only
just tacky radio and hair spray girls
standing there among the curls

haircut girl
haircut girl
stole my heart when she did my do
sold me some shampoo too
haircut girl

 

SPACE 36 [susan west, kim fowley]

she likes tabloid t.v.
and she is not afraid
the cartoon character guest on sally
validates that she has it made
sipping a tab eating pork rinds
while watching mr. bey
today dr. atkins was on
and he actually said that was o.k.

and it's cigarette burns deep in her heat
this tells her that she's on fire for you baby
space 36 where her trailer is parked
and she owns the clouds in the sky

space 36 where her trailer is parked
has been in the family for three generations.
There's a plaque in the rec room with a picture of mom
dated july 4th 1967
just about everything can make her cry
remember she's the one who owns the clouds in the sky
she watches the shows and definitely knows
just what she'd do if it happened to you

and it's cigarette burns deep in her heat
this tells her that she's on fire for you baby
space 36 where her trailer is parked
and she owns the clouds in the sky

space 36 where her trailer is parked
space 36 where the parties all start

and it's cigarette burns deep in her heat
this tells her that she's on fire for you baby
space 36 where her trailer is parked
and she owns the clouds in the sky

ahhhhhh pow!
ahhhhhh shazam!
ahhhhhhh zoinks!
ahhhhhhh look out!

and it's 1 2 3
and it's cigarette burns deep in her heat
this tells her that she's on fire for you baby
space 36 where her trailer is parked
and she owns the clouds in the sky

 

SHE'S SO MEAN [susan west, michael simmons]

if he were hers she knows that she'd have to break him
he'd be a lot of work but she thinks it's worth it
standing on the brink of perfection
he couldn't be loud no more of those outbreaks
she'd work on the sex no bad moral out takes
it's bound to lead to total dissection

he don't even know that something's wrong
even though she's tried to tell him all along
she's so mean to him she's so mean to him
she's so mean she's so mean she's so mean

little piles of her little piles of him
no magic moments of romantic whim
drowning in a sea of dysfunction
she is rich but in a different way
but still she's gonna make him pay and pay
heading for financial destruction

he don't even think that something's wrong
it would all work out if they could just get along
she's so mean to him she's so mean to him
she's so mean she's so mean she's so mean

she's so mean when she turns down his radio
and drags him to the art house picture show
he's gonna have to change his life
if she is gonna be his wife
and she knows

she's so mean to him she's so mean to him
she's so mean she's so mean she's so mean
she's so mean to him she's so mean to him
she's so mean she's so mean she's so mean

 

GOLDEN [michael simmons]

i guess it'll be alright
i guess it'll be okay
it's tough when you stick your neck out
and come back wounded
and you feel like you've lost your way
lost your way
but i know it'll come out right
and all the pain is gonna go away
it's tough when you open your heart
to a heartless world
and you feel like you've lost your way
lost your way
i know you think it's easy for me to say

but if you feel like your heart is broken
then i promise to be your friend
your love is precious
it's golden

your emotions keep you up at night
your fantasizing makes you dream all day
it's tough when you live in a dream
and life wakes you up
and you feel that you've lost your way
lost your way
i know you think it's easy for me to say

but if you feel like your heart is broken
then i promise to be your friend
your love is precious
it's golden

 

LISTEN TO ME [michael simmons]

listen to me
do you belive in destiny
how can it be
is that what you really want from me
well if it's true baby I need to know
it's plain to see that we don't go
it's plain to see it's plain to see

listen to me
did you think I'd give you love for free
why can't you see
you'll never be more than a friend to me

I've got a few things to say about my life
no thoughts today of man and wife
it's all of my life

and it's the same thing that I wanted you to know
is it really all that bad to remember the fun we had

well if it's true baby I need to know
it's plain to see that we don't go
it's plain to see it's plain to see
and if I change my mind will you marry me?

 

SURFIN' MONKEYS [susan west, jamie knight]

i lost my wallet at the border
when i got out to see if our line was still moving
almost ran out of gas that was scary
tried to ask how far to the next station
but they pretended not to even understand me

surfing monkeys down in mexico

so many beauties to chose from
jesus, pooh in a sombrero
or a grain of rice with my name written on it
when we went swimming in the ocean
saw a dead dolphin just lying there
it looked like it had been there for hours and hours
and days and weeks or maybe even a month or two

surfing monkeys down in mexico
ate some lobster for a dollar

federales federales dancing in my head
chicklets on the floor of my king cab pick up truck
please don't ask me please don't ask me for no more

surfing monkeys down in mexico
ate some lobster for a dollar
wanted firecrackers friends wouldn't let me
got an electric shock in the shower
I lost my wallet at the border

 

LOVE SACRIFICE [susan west]

happy days are here again
I've got my arms and legs and I've got good skin
the sky below is blue as can be
we've got no problems as my friends can see
that's what I told you stop if you've heard before
my head is spinning spinning as I drop to the floor

you suck the life right out of me
you suck it out for the world to see
I'll play the game I'll blend in well
I'll meet your mom and I'll wear chanel

that's what I told you stop if you've heard before
my head is spinning spinning as I drop to the floor
but then I told the truth
and now I'm paying the price
what's so wrong with a little love sacrifice

little love sacrifice
human love sacrifice
we're talkin' human love sacrifice
here we go now

 

WAITING [susan west, michael simmons]

youv'e got a look to paralyze
you got a voice to hypnotize
you make me wake to realize
that you're not here
why aren't you sorry
for leaving me lonely
don't think I'm your only consolation.

You got something I need
you got something I need
I'm needing someone to bleed
so why can't you just be here

waiting waiting for you to come back to me
waiting what's so damn important to keep me
waiting who do you think you are boy to keep me
waiting waiting waiting

you bought the book to prophesize
tore out the pages inserted lies
why don't you have some pie with your pie
oh you're not done with dinner
why aren't you sorry for leaving me happy
don't think I'm your only ship in the night

You got something I need
you got something I need
I'm needing someone to bleed
so why can't you just be here

waiting waiting for you to come back to me
waiting what's so damn important to keep me
waiting who do you think you are boy to keep me
waiting waiting waiting

 

THIS IS FRANK SLAG [douglas fletcher harrington]

Michael! This is Frank Slag out in san pedro listen all the street lights went out last night in the middle of the night and it was horrible we had trucks and boats and planes crashin' into each other and everything I wanted to let you know my attorney is gonna contact you guys and sue the living hell out of ya just liked I'd let ya know bye

 

STRIPPERS AND LESBIANS [michael simmons]

It hurts to live and I can't do it alone
because I open the door each night
to find there's nobody home
it hurts to live this life and I can't do it alone

used to be a seeker 'til I learned the game
then a wise wise man once told me
the secret to his acclaim
you only need two things
to get your worldwide fame
and here's what he told me

he said strippers and lesbians
are all that you need
strippers and lesbians are all you need
your entertainment is guaranteed
because strippers and lesbians
are all that you need

I'd make a change if I could get out alive
hey sweet thing
didn't we ball down at the calvary chapel back in 1985?
you know I'd make a change
if I could get out alive

had a chat with my therapist
so she could get me on track
you know I gotta try and shake
this devil off of my back
she said I can't believe my ears
what you been smoking, boy? crack?
And this is what she told me

she said strippers and lesbians
are all that you need
strippers and lesbians are all you need
your entertainment is guaranteed
because strippers and lesbians
are all that you need

I thought of changing my lifestyle
'cause my heart ain't feelin' to well
and my momma say if I don't change my ways
I'll most assuredly go to hell
until that day I just gotta say that

said strippers and lesbians
are all that you need
strippers and lesbians are all you need
your entertainment is guaranteed
because strippers and lesbians
are all that you need

 

MONSTER [susan west, s.j.u.k.]

Open your eyes
There's a monster in front of you
And she is a girl
You'll breathe a sigh
When she brings here presence
Remember she is a girl
She's flesh and blood
Maybe more than the rest of us
But she's just a girl

You will be dreamin' and walkin'
Schemin' together and talkin'
The band is just about rockin'
Then she blows

Open your eyes
There's a monster in front of you
And she is a girl
She can be happy or she can be sad
In her cherry vanilla swirl
You know the stories
You know how she gets
But you wanna give her a whirl

You will be dreamin' and walkin'
Schemin' together and talkin'
The band is just about rockin'
Then she blows

Open your eyes
There's a monster in front of you
And she is a girl
She'll tell you sorry
She'll tell you she's right
Remember she's still a girl
Open your eyes
Open your eyes
She's still a girl

You will be dreamin' and walkin'
Schemin' together and talkin'
The band is just about rockin'
Then she blows

 

SHE MAY BE NICE [michael simmons, jamie knight]

She might be very sweet
Dress real nice and look petite
She might be everybody's prize
But she's got one fatal flaw
One that matters most of all
She may be nice, but she ain't you

She may have eyes of blue
Killer thighs and a boss tattoo
The toast of every guy in town
A whole wardrobe that oozes style
Breaking hearts with just her smile
She may be nice, but she ain't you

She ain't you, she ain't you
No one could ever ever thrill me like you do
She ain't you, please believe me 'cause it's true
She may be nice, but she ain't you

She may be charming, flashing flair
Fashion eyes and flowing hair
The greatest beauty in the land
She may have all of this and more
But there's one thing I know for sure
She may be nice, but she ain't you

She ain't you, she ain't you
No one could ever ever thrill me like you do
She ain't you, please believe me 'cause it's true
She may be nice, but she ain't you

he may be charming, flashing flair
Fashion eyes and flowing hair
The greatest beauty in the land
She may have all of this and so more
But you're the one that I adore
She may be nice, but she ain't you

She ain't you, she ain't you
No one could ever ever love me like you do
She ain't you, please believe me 'cause it's true
She may be nice, but little girl
You're my paradise, oh yeah
She may be nice, but she ain't you

 

SORRY [michael simmons]

Seems we woke up on the wrong side
Of the bed this morning
The sun's come out to play
And it's time I must be on my way
But something in your silence
Giving me the warning
That something isn't right
Though things were wonderful last night

Did I pour out too much coffee?
Did I leave the place a mess?
Did I get back home too late again?
What little thing could brew up all this stress?

But if I say I'm sorry and you say you're sorry
We can chalk it up as a misadventure
If I say I'm sorry and you say you're sorry too
You know I live it all for you

Sitting at my desk feeling so distracted
I know that you're at home
Stewing all alone
Wondering what I could have done
Or how I acted
To make things go this way
To ruin such a pretty day

Did I forget your birthday?
A careless word that made you frown?
This petty stuff that makes us crazy
Can make my world come crashing down

But if I say I'm sorry and you say you're sorry
We can chalk it up as a misadventure
If I say I'm sorry and you say you're sorry too
You know I live it all for you

 

CONSULT YOUR PHYSICIAN [susan west, s.j.u.k.]

So your love is down
And not taking liquids
You say you need some Pine-Sol
To clean your heart
You can't believe it's still alive
You tried so hard to kill it
Say five hail marys
And call me in the morning

You can agonize
Till your agony
Is your heaviest load
Come on, get happy

Take the coins off your eyes
You're not dead yet
You're always putting your love coffin
Before your love last rights
Just do what the doctor says
And
Say five hail marys
And call me in the morning

You can agonize
Till your agony
Is your heaviest load
Come on, get happy

What you need is a little vacation
No monkeys, Buddha, or civilization
A word of advice:
Don't take your mom and daddy
Say five hail marys
And call me in the morning

You can agonize
Till your agony
Is your heaviest load
You can agonize
Till your agony
Is your heaviest load

 

SO GONE [jamie knight, michael simmons]

She's got it made, she's got it bad
Couldn't see the warning signs along
The road to her bed
She's out of her head
First she goes to him but she comes with me

And she sings la de da de da
And she knows who's the evil one
And she sings la de da de da
But she don't care 'cause she's gone
All the nights she's stayed on
And all the jerks she's laid on
And all the tunes I've played on
Seem to say: Let it go, she's so gone

I don't get to choose, I know I'll lose
But she says that's just what losers do
No need to regret, 'cause I can forget
Glad I found it out before it found me

And she sings la de da de da
And she knows who's the evil one
And she sings la de da de da
But she don't care 'cause she's gone
All the nights she's stayed on
And all the jerks she's laid on
And all the tunes I've played on
Seem to say: Let it go, she's so gone

 

REAL NICE TIME [susan west, s.j.u.k.]

Well I hope you had a real nice time without me
I hope you went and had yourself a ball
It really was so neat
You stumbled to your feet, oh yeah
And I hope you had a real nice time without me

Did you have a good time?
Did you have one with lime?
Did someone say l'chaim?
Did you tell her you're mine?
Well I hope you had a real nice time without me

Well, I'm sorry when you told your story
I was sawing logs
About when you both first kissed
She turned back into a frog
It really was so neat
She had all she could eat, oh yeah
And I hope you had a real nice time without me

Did you have a good time?
Did you have one with lime?
Did someone say l'chaim?
Did you tell her you're mine?
Well I hope you had a real nice time without me
Did she dance like this?

 

HATE YOUR HAIR [michael simmons]

I understand what you're going through
I used to be a lot like you
You don't make the rules
Baby you can't win
Doing all you can just to fit in
There's some porcupine action
Goin' on up there
You're a really cool guy
But I hate your hair

HATE YOUR HAIR
HATE YOUR HAIR
HATE YOUR HAIR

HATE YOUR HAIR
HATE YOUR HAIR
HATE YOUR HAIR

HATE YOUR HAIR

 

BEAUTIFUL GIRL

Beautiful girl it seems like years ago
I heard a tune then I told you that soon
It would hit number one
And beautiful girl, hot as the hell below
And sweet as a dream, though a marketing scheme
Kinda silly and fun, it sold by the ton

But you'll never know what it's like
To know the truth the way I do
Beautiful girl, this is the only song that's true

Beautiful girl, hear it call out to you
Every note is contrived for maximum vibe
To make you laugh or cry
And beautifu girl, it's addictive as any brew
Every phrase is a melodic maze
Designed to trap you inside and fill your mind

But darling, you see, it's happened to me
I can be fooled just like you
Beautiful girl, this is the only song that's true

But darling, you see, it's happened to me
I can be taken just like you
Beautiful girl, this is the only song that's true
This is the only song that's true
Beautiful girl

 

THEY SHOOT SQUARE DANCERS, DON'T THEY? [susan west, michael simmons]

You in the front row now
Swing your partner now
And your mother now

Okay who would think that
A guy could sink so very very low
That every word, a noun or a verb
Is a lie from the very very go

How could he forget what he never knew
Read his mind, not his words
'Cause that could give you the love flu

Oh read his mind, read his mind
Not his lips, not his lips
They shoot square dancers, don't they?

You in the front row now
And your mother now
Don't forget Chaka

He lied in the morning
He lied in the middle of the night
As he cast his spidery web
With visions of sugar
And things that delight

You were betrayed by his lack of lust
His love was a bust, not worth any fuss
In the morning he had to run
He had to run and take a bus
Oh, his love was a bust, not worth any fuss
And in the morning he had to run and take the bus

They shoot square dancers, don't they?
Spiritually speaking

You in the front row now
And your mother now
Don't forget Chaka
Swing your partner now
They shoot square dancers
They shoot square dancers

 

IT'S GOTTA HAPPEN [michael simmons}

When I'm feeling tired
A little sad and uninspired
I do just what my best friend tells me
And everything's all right
When I feel ignored
Like there's no purpose for me anymore
I listen to what my best friend tells me
And everything's all right

She tells me I'm important
She says my day will come
She's sure that my adventure
Has hardly begun
Then she says

It's gotta happen, it's gotta happen, it's gotta happen
It sure ain't happening now
It's gotta happen, it's gotta happen, it's gotta happen
It sure ain't happening now

When I don't feel sure
A little shy and insecure
I do just what my best friend tells me
And everything's all right
When I'm out of touch
My contributions to society don't mean much
I listen to what my best friend tells me
And everything's all right

She tells me that I'm special
She says I'm doing great
It's gonna happen soon
And baby I can't wait
Then she tells me

It's gotta happen, it's gotta happen, it's gotta happen
It sure ain't happening now
It's gotta happen, it's gotta happen, it's gotta happen
It sure ain't happening now

 

NOBODY'S GIRL [michael simmons]

He's got her in his back pocket
The crazy ways she's acting too
He's got the key and he'll never unlock it
She'll never have the upper hand again
I see it happen every night
He treats her like she's nothing and it isn't right
I can take it, I can't take it anymore

She calls me to cry on my shoulder
She saves her secrets just for me
Though it means that I never can hold her
I'm off her list forever that's for sure
After all my time and care
She looked right past me like I wasn't there
I can take it, I can't take it anymore

She says she's nobody's girl, nobody's girl
But she's everything I would want in this world
Wonder what it would do if she only knew
That she's everything to me
But that can never be

Every move I make really shows it
I dote on her like a nervous host
Got a feeling that everyone knows it
Except for her, and that's what hurts the most
I wish I'd known before my fall
Nice guys come last or not at all
I can take it, I can't take it anymore

She says she's nobody's girl, nobody's girl
But she's everything I would want in this world
Wonder what it would do if she only knew
That she's everything to me
Wish I was nobody

 

GOOD MORNING WORLD [michael simmons]

Called you up one last time
Just to prove it to myself
That you're no longer mine
You said it's over, okay that's fine
But you didn't have to tell me
That I'd wasted my dime

Stepped out my door without a tear
There was no one there to hear
So I shouted loud and clear

Good morning world
'Cause it's a good, good morning world

Hold my breath and count to ten
Then I realize how great it feels
To be free again
So I went out with my friends
But all the girls I saw
Were going out with other men

I was alone, all by myself
Would you put me on the shelf?
Please, I really need your help

Good morning world
'Cause it's a good, good morning world

I must admit that I have cried
If you only knew about the many
Times I've tried to tell you how I feel
I guess it's time to swallow pride
But when you left that day
A little piece of my heart died

I never thought it would have to end
If our relationship could mend
Would you, could you be my friend?

Good morning world
'Cause it's a good, good morning world
Good morning world
'Cause it's a good, good morning world

 

A NICE ONE [susan west]

I just wanna write a nice one
I don't wanna write a mean one
Cuz I wrote a really mean one
Just the other day

I don't wanna write a snippy one
A snippy lippy dippy jippy one
I just wanna write a pretty song
To end this day

But don't you know it's
Smog that makes the sky look pretty
It's hunger that makes your food taste good
And you don't know you were really happy
until you get sad

I just wanna write a nice one
A really really really nice one
We don't need another mean one
Though mean ones always get their way.

I just wanna write a pretty one
We don't need another ugly one
There are already enough ugly ones
I just wanna make you smile

But don't you know it's
Smog that makes the sky look pretty
It's hunger that makes your food taste good
And you don't know you're happy
until you're sad

And you know it's
Crap and Rain that make the flowers grow
Pain & suff'ring make your juices flow.
And you don't know you're in the middle of good
till things go bad.

and remember
time goes by before you know it
please make sure that you don't you blow it
spread your love around while you still can

and that is why
I just wanna write a nice song
A little shiny happy pretty song
It doesn't even have to be long
I just wanna write a nice song

 

LOVE BURN [susan west, s.j.u.k.]

You know I've got a little love burn
It really hurts right there
It only hurts when I bend it
So I'm not gonna bend it
I know you know what I'm talkin' about
You got your own right there
Why don't you peel back your band-aid
And we'll compare

I've got a heart in my song for you tonight
And if we're all really lucky it won't see the day of night
You know I've got a little love burn

You know I've got a little love burn
And it hurts so bad
Went from first to third degree
We'll need a bucket full of salve
You know I've got a little love burn
And it just won't heal
I know I should put something on it
So my heart won't feel

I've got a heart in my song for you tonight
And if we're all really lucky it won't see the day of night
You know I've got a little love burn

You, you've got a little love burn
And it needs some air
Maybe we can get together
And get this thing repaired

I've got a heart in my song for you tonight
And if we're all really lucky it won't see the day of night
You know I've got a little love burn
