 (by Stephen Thomas Erlewine)

After Juliana Hatfield disbanded the jangle pop trio the Blake Babies in 1990, she launched a solo career, performing similarly melodic indie guitar pop. Singing in an endearingly thin voice, Hatfield married her ringing hooks to sweet, lovelorn pop and startlingly honest confessional songs. Her 1992 solo debut, Hey Babe, became a college radio hit, and its follow-up, 1994's Become What You Are, was primed to become a crossover success in the wake of the commercialization of alternative rock. Although Hatfield had a handful of modern rock hits, including "Spin the Bottle," she never managed to gain the mainstream audience of peers like the Lemonheads did, and by the late '90s, she had settled into a cult following. Hatfield was raised in an upper-middle-class home in Massachusetts; her father was a doctor and her mother was a fashion editor for The Boston Globe. As a child, she learned how to play piano, and during high school, she played guitar in a covers group called the Squids before discovering alternative rock through the Velvet Underground. Following high school, she attended the Berklee College of Music in Boston, where she studied voice. While at Berklee, she met guitarist John Strohm and drummer Freda Boner, with whom she formed the Blake Babies in 1986. Over the next six years, the Blake Babies and their charming jangle pop became college radio favorites. Hatfield left the band in 1990, and Strohm and Boner formed Antenna.

Immediately following her departure from the Blake Babies, Hatfield contributed several lyrics to Susanna Hoffs' debut album. The following year, she played bass on the Lemonheads' It's a Shame About Ray, which turned out to be the band's commercial breakthrough. The success of It's a Shame About Ray in 1992 stirred interest in Hatfield's solo debut, Hey Babe. Released on Mammoth Records, the album was very similar to the Blake Babies, yet the songs were more personal and confessional. Hey Babe was critically praised and became a college radio and MTV hit, leading to a major-label contract for Hatfield with Atlantic. In 1992, Hatfield formed the Juliana Hatfield Three with bassist Dean Fisher and drummer Todd Phillips, and the group recorded its debut for Atlantic with R.E.M.'s producer Scott Litt. As she worked on the record, Hatfield became a minor media sensation; her songs were accepted as friendly, more accessible distillations of the feminist alternative rock movement known as riot grrrl. Hatfield appeared in fashion layouts in Vogue and Sassy, and she became the subject of gossipy tidbits about her speculated romance with Lemonhead Evan Dando and her assertion that she was still a virgin at the age of 25. In light of such exposure, many observers expected her 1993 album Become What You Are to be her mainstream breakthrough. A heavier record than its predecessor, Become What You Are was a moderate hit, as "My Sister" and "Spin the Bottle" earned heavy airplay on MTV and modern rock radio. Nevertheless, the album failed to make her a star.

Only Everything followed in the spring of 1995 as alternative rock was beginning to decline in popularity. The album was received with mixed reviews, and only "Universal Heartbeat" managed to make much headway on radio or MTV, causing the album to slip down the charts quickly. Hatfield returned in 1997 with the EP Please Do Not Disturb, followed a year later by the full-length Bed. Spring 2000 was a busy time for Hatfield; she released the quiet, reflective solo album Beautiful Creature and Total System Failure, a collection of louder, poppier material, on the same day. Total System Failure featured Hatfield, former Weezer bassist Mike Welsh, and drummer Zephan Courtney as a new band, Juliana's Pony, which was a trio along the lines of the Juliana Hatfield Three.

Hatfield's next project was a return to one of her first: she reunited with Freda Love and John Strohm in 2000, launching a Blake Babies tour and recording an album entitled God Bless the Blake Babies. The reunion was short-lived, but Hatfield and Love continued to work together in a group called Some Girls, which also featured Heidi Gluck (the Pieces). Some Girls put out the Feel It LP in 2002 and also did a moderate amount of touring. After that, it was back to the solo game for Hatfield. 2004's In Exile Deo was a bit of a surprise, however, since after all her restlessness it was easily one of her strongest, most mature albums to date. That mature streak continued with 2005's Made in China, a raw and direct effort that she produced herself and put out through her own Ye Olde imprint, as well as the Sittin' in a Tree... EP, which was recorded alongside the Boston-based alt-country band Frank Smith. A collection of live tracks called The White Broken Line: Live Recordings followed, and 2008 saw the release of two Hatfield products: first, a solo album entitled How I Walk Away, and second, an autobiography detailing her highs and lows throughout multiple decades of music-making. In 2010 Hatfield released another solo album, the self-produced Peace & Love, through her Ye Olde imprint. For her next album, Hatfield reached out to her fans, crowd-sourcing the funding for the album through website Pledge Music and giving a portion of the money donated by fans to a pair of animal shelters. The album, There's Always Another Girl, arrived in 2011. Two other Pledge Music-funded albums followed in the next two years -- an eponymous covers album in 2012 and Wild Animals in 2013 -- before she joined with Matthew Caws of Nada Surf for a duo called Minor Alps. After this project, she reunited the Juliana Hatfield Three to record Whatever, My Love, the trio's first album in 22 years. Whatever, My Love came out in February 2015.

Feel It

Feel It

It's not gonna be like heaven for long
Will you still be here when the crowds have gone
When they drive right on by the flashing red lights
When everything I am has been denied
Loneliness
Is only a test

I can feel it just for a minute and then it's gone
I can feel it just for a minute and then it's gone

I wanna have some faith in the rising sun
I wanna stay in love all night long
But back and forth I go in and out
Between yes and no and confidence and doubt
I digress
Reconnect

I can feel it just for a minute and then it's gone
I can feel it just for a minute and then it's gone

Pieces of a dream
Are the secret to something

I can feel it just for a minute and then it's gone
I can feel it just for a minute and then it's gone
I can feel it just for a minute and then it's gone…
It's not gonna be like heaven for long

The Prettiest Girl

I want to hang around with you
I never got anything to do
I kind of cover myself up
Can I come and watch you strut
In your sneakers and tube top

You're the prettiest girl
You're the prettiest girl
You're the prettiest girl in the world

You're the prettiest girl
You're the prettiest girl
You're the prettiest girl in the world

Your mother's on the phone
You tell her you're not coming home
You're washing donuts down with beer
While someone's brushing your hair
And you're walking down the hall
Like you don't care at all
Can I feel your tragic wrist
And can I have your cherry lips
Can I be born into this

You're the prettiest girl
You're the prettiest girl
You're the prettiest girl in the world

You're the prettiest girl
You're the prettiest girl
You're the prettiest girl in the world

Come on, baby, give me some
Of your precious attention
Your honor I defend
From all the dirty old men

You're the prettiest girl
You're the prettiest girl
You're the prettiest girl in the world

You're the prettiest girl
You're the prettiest girl
You're the prettiest girl in the world

You're the prettiest girl
You're the prettiest girl
You're the prettiest girl in the world

You're the prettiest girl
You're the prettiest girl
You're the prettiest girl in the world

God help me I’ll never forget you

Necessito

Get up off me
I want coffee
My stalker is outside my door
I slept five hours
I need eight hours
And speed is such a bore

So turn it on turn it up necessito loud music
Turn it on turn it up necessito la la la
Turn it on turn it up necessito la musique
Turn it on turn it up necessito la la la

Getting ready
Rocking steady
Putting on my bug spray
The phone keeps ringing
Too early for thinking
Make it go away

So turn it on turn it up necessito loud music
Turn it on turn it up necessito la la la
Turn it on turn it up necessito la musique
Turn it on turn it up necessito la la la

Critics with their death threats
I just drown them out
They're burned-out and brain-dead
And they don't even get me down

So turn it on turn it up necessito loud music
Turn it on turn it up necessito la la la
Turn it on turn it up necessito la musique
Turn it on turn it up necessito la la la

Critics with their death threats
I just drown them out
They're burned-out and brain-dead
And they don't even get me down

So turn it on turn it up necessito loud music
Turn it on turn it up necessito la la la
Turn it on turn it up necessito la musique
Turn it on turn it up necessito la la la

Almost True

I've seen the girl of your dreams
Is it hard, sweetheart, to wake up next to me
Late at night and in a darkened room
Our love is real and almost true
Our love is real and almost true

She's a black hole
You wanna let go
And keep falling
Baby I know
Where you wanna go
And there's nothing

I've heard the story that she tells
But when I find god I’ll keep it to myself
Same old thing disguised as something new
But our love is real and almost true

She's a black hole
You wanna let go
And keep falling
Baby I know
Where you wanna go
And there's nothing

She's a black hole
You wanna let go
And keep falling
She's a black hole
You wanna let go
And keep falling
Baby I know
Where you wanna go
And there's nothing

No one understands her like you do
But our love is real and almost true
Our love is real and almost true...

Robot City

Jehovah knocking at my door
What can I say
I gave him some
He wanted more
So I paid
And now he's gone
Another round for everyone
I just wanna be your sugar mom

Dick and Jane were married on TV
And New Jersey cried itself to sleep
They tried not buying anything today
Inside robot city
Dirty virgin lying about her age
She loves Frankie B.
She dropped several hundred on her hair and underwear
Make me fit in a tiny place
Old lady's giving me dirty looks
'Cause I touched her space

Dick and Jane were married on TV
And Florida cried itself to sleep
They tried not buying anything today
Inside robot city

Pick it up and put it in
Then you go back and do it over and over again

Dick and Jane were married on TV
And Phoenix cried itself to sleep
They tried not buying anything today
Inside robot city

Launch Pad

By the launch pad
We're expecting just a short delay
The back of your head it telling me what you won't say
It's not the tires on the track
The broke her heart and broke her back
The road not taken
Stone unturned
The letter written
Later burned

You say to me it's gonna be the longest day
In the back of my mind I'm looking for a getaway
But it's not the tires on the track
That broke he heart and broke her back
The road not taken
Stone unturned
The letter written
Later burned
Later burned

The map is out the window
I'm driving with my eyes closed
I lost the plot a thousand miles ago
It's time to go
It's time to go...

You Don't Know

You got me running everywhere
You can't see because you're never there
One way, two ways
Not the way I was planning to go
If you stop me
I'll turn around and go straight home

You don't know what you do to me
I would risk losing everything
Turn around on a heartbeat
I don't know what to make of us
I can't tell if it's dangerous

One breath, two breaths
It's not the way that I usually breathe
Right in your step
I could turn on my heels and leave

You don't know what you do to me
I would risk losing everything
Turn around on a heartbeat
And find you gone

Wake me
Shake me
I had a dream you looked with eyes like mine

You don't know what you do to me
I would risk losing everything
Turn around on a heartbeat
You don't know what you do to me
You don't know what you do to me
You don't know what you do to me...

Just Like The First Time

A train reconsiders its tracks
The sidewalk I'm walking on cracks
It's just like the first time
I knew, I knew
Just like the first time
My heart fell out

Don't disconnect our one line
And don't tell me my baby's not mine

Never learned
How to know
Always drops
Like a stone
Always hurts
Every one
Every truth
Comes undone

Just like the first time
I knew, I knew
Just like the first time
My heart fell out

Just like the first time
I knew, I knew, I knew
Just like the first time
My heart fell at your feet

On My Back

I'm on my back
Dreaming of no one
Just days gone by
And miles of green grass
That one day will be mine
I could die and no one would know
They don't realize it doesn't feel like I'm alone

On my back I can become one
With the couch I'm living on
I can sleep all day
And not do anything
And let the phone ring

And in my eyes
The ceiling or the sun and sky
I float around on waves
The truth hurts so I lie
I don't cry about the things I should
Content to be misunderstood

On my back
I can become one
With the couch I'm living on
I can sleep all day
And not say anything
And let the phone ring

On my back
I can become one
With the couch I'm living on
I can sleep all day
And not say anything
And let the phone ring

I'm on my back
Dreaming of nothing
Just, will it rain on all the pretty girls
I love not living in the world
I love not living in the world

On my back
I can become one
With the couch I'm living on

On my back
I can become one
With the couch I'm living on...

The Getaway

I tried to call you Sunday morning
It was later than you think
The doctor tells me that's a warning
There was something in my drink
And if I could hide my soul
From your golden glow
I'd find a corner black as night
But I can't forget about it

Didn't you used to
Didn't you used to be
My darling angel
Who promised everything to me

I saw you standing in the doorway
There was something in your eye
You're screwing up the secret signal
And the driver's on the fly
If I could find a way
To understand it when you say
There is a reason clear and bright
But I can't forget about it

Didn't you used to
Didn't you used to be
My darling angel
Who promised everything to me

And didn't you used to
Didn't you used to say

If I could find a way
To understand it when you say
There is a reason clear and bright
But I can't forget about it

Didn't you used to
Didn't you used to be
My darling angel
Who promised everything to me

And didn't you used to
Didn't you used to say
That we could make it
Make the greatest getaway

Malted Milk

( Robert Johnson )

I keep drinking malted milk
Trying to drive my blues away
I keep drinking malted milk
Trying to drive my blues away
You're just as welcome to my loving
As the flowers is in May

Malted milk, malted milk
Keep rushing to my head
Malted milk, malted milk
Keep rushing to my head
And I have a funny, funny feeling
And I'm talking all out my head

Baby, fix me one more drink
And hug your daddy one more time
Baby, fix me one more drink
And hug your daddy one more time
Keep on stirring my malted milk, daddy
Until I change my mind

My doorknob keeps on turning
There must be spooks around my bed
My doorknob keeps on turning
There must be spooks around my bed
And I have a funny, funny feeling
And the hair's rising on my head

I keep drinking malted milk
Trying to drive my blues away
I keep drinking malted milk
Trying to drive my blues away
Baby, you're just as welcome to my loving
As the flowers is in May
You're just as welcome to my loving
As the flowers is in May
You're welcome...

Crushing Love

Is This What I’ve Been Waiting For

This is not a movie baby
A happy ending is not guaranteed
And this is not one of those songs from radio
You're not gonna write this one so easily
We've been talking for hours about it
But you could tell me so much more with just one kiss
I’ve been searching inside your big brown eyes
The more I see the greater the mystery

Is this what I’ve been waiting for just to know I don't know anymore
Is this what I’ve been waiting for

This is not a lesson honey
I'm not learning anything of any kind
And there just might not be a reason to be with you
But we left reason far behind
I’ve been thinking for hours about it
The harder I try the less I get it right
I’ve been searching inside this old heart of mine
Learning to love the questions that I leave behind

Is this what I’ve been waiting for
I don't expect the answers anymore
Is this what I’ve been waiting for

I’ve been searching inside your big brown eyes
Is this what I’ve been waiting for
I’ve been searching inside your big brown eyes
Is this what I’ve been waiting for
I’ve been searching inside your big brown eyes
Is this what I’ve been waiting for
I’ve been searching inside your big brown eyes
The more I see the more the mystery hides

Is this what I’ve been waiting for
Is this what I’ve been waiting for
Is this what I’ve been waiting for…

Poor Man's You

You were born a little late and I was born a little early
Now I'm gonna cut your rope and hate the world cause it keeps turning
I am only in your way
You have so much love to make

I wish I could tell you with a better song how much I love you
It's all been said before and I'm so sick of words but you make it new
Why don't people know your name
You should be here in my place
Aaah ah aaah ah aaah ah aaah
This song is a poor man's love me do
And I am a poor man's you

This song is a poor man's love me do
And I am a poor man's you
Fast before the music dies take it from me and keep it alive

Partner in Crime

Does it really have to be so hard
I'm light as a feather you're stiff as a board
Is there any way that I can be
To get you really to look at me
Look at me
Look at me
Is the weight gonna shift today
You're burning out and I'm fading away
Are you really gonna let me go
Well you could put up a fight you know
Once upon a time you got lost inside my eyes
Once upon a time you got lost inside my eyes
I'm just your alibi but I'd rather be your partner in crime

But you're not home tonight
And I'm doing what I do
I'll open my heart wide enough to break into
Once upon a time you got lost inside my eyes
Once upon a time you got lost inside my eyes
I'm just your alibi but I'd rather be your partner in crime

I'll open my heart wide
Once upon a time you got lost inside my eyes
Once upon a time you got lost inside my eyes
I'm just your alibi but I'd rather be your partner in crime

Hooray For L.A.

They got sex everywhere every step of the way
They got sunshine in my eyes every fucking day
They got music in the bars that make the floor shake
They got stars that shine so bright they make my heart break

And money, money, money, money, money, money, money
Money, money, money, money, money, money, money, money

Hooray for L.A., hooray for L.A.
Hooray for L.A., hooray for L.A.

They got fires burning in the street
And I got people working for me
They got bodies everywhere right up in my face
Miles and miles of freeway and a car chase

And money, money, money, money, money, money, money
Money, money, money, money, money, money, money, money

Hooray for L.A., hooray for L.A.
Hooray for L.A., hooray for L.A.

And money, money, money, money, money, money, money

Hooray for L.A., hooray for L.A.

Social Control

I didn't even wanna be there
I'd rather be at home watching TV
But I went there to be with you
In a bar full of people that I don't wanna know
One looked at me wrong
Or just the fact that he looked at me at all
He was saying something stupid
When I yelled shut up
That made him shut up
And that's when I said
He needed to be controlled
And I wanted to discipline him
Free people need social control
And I'm trying to teach it to them

Then one bumped into me
He crossed the line literally
He spilled his beer in my cleavage
So I slapped him in the face
Then I turned him around so he was walking away
He needed to be controlled
And I wanted to discipline him
Free people need social control

He needed to be controlled
And I wanted to discipline him
Free people need social control

On My Own Again

It took long enough to finalize a vision
And follow intuition like we ever had a hope
Of staying together through that kind of weather
The kind that starts with thunder is gonna leave you without a home
Maybe you'll come over and wear me down
But we should stay away and I’ll just see you around
I'm down to watch your wheels spinning round and round
Til I'm on my own again
Til I'm on my own again
Bright city lights make us lose direction
Fogging our intentions like you were waving around a gun
And though it seems closer to feeling like it's over
You're keeping a heart beating when it's time to pull the plug
Maybe you'll come over and wear me down
But we should stay away and I’ll just see you around
I'm down to watch your wheels spinning round and round
Til I'm on my own again
Til I'm on my own again

I'm down to watch your wheels spinning round and round
Til I'm on my own again
Til I'm on my own again
Til I'm on my own again
Til I'm on my own again

Stars in My Dreams

She stars in all my dreams as a soft white angel
She tells me what she needs she doesn't make me read her mind
I could learn from this living minute to minute take me under wing
She's up for anything and doesn't waste time thinking it over
She just takes off running after anything you throw her
She loves motorcycles, she loves open water
She loves the wind in her hair
Rolling around in the grass I will defend our freedom and if she's attacked
She won't back down she'll fight with all the force and the fury the situation demands

Rock Or Pop

Does god read the liner notes
Does god watch the award shows
Or is everybody just wasting their breath on energy that is better spent
Oh rock or pop
Oh rock or pop
Oh rock or pop
Oh pop or rock

Think of the difference
Are you writing for an audience
Or are you writing for yourself
You're very willing to go straight to hell
Oh rock or pop
Oh rock or pop
Oh rock or pop
Oh pop or rock

I don't want you to clean it up
I like it if it's kind of fucked up
You're so uptight and you can't relax
You gotta get to the chorus fast
Fortunes made
Fortunes lost
Throwing bottles against the wall
Good for nothing know it all

Where does the soul go

Oh rock or pop
Oh rock or pop
Oh rock or pop
Choose pop or rock

Live Alone

I wanted to learn from you
All of the things that you think a man should do
For me cause I really don't have a clue
I'm feeling worn down bothered and abused
And you wonder where she is today
In a hotel room in another state
And of all the people who are happy
How many live alone
How many live alone
How many live alone
Consider the circumstances
When you tell me that I left you empty handed
I wasn't always there it's true
But I tried and tried to try and be my best for you
And what's it gonna be this time
Why do you crawl back when she tells the lies
And of all the people who never cry
How many live alone
How many live alone
How many live alone

And you wonder where she is today
In a hotel room in another state
And of all the people who are happy
How many live alone
How many live alone
How many live alone...

Just Like That

Just like that she's gone like that
Just like her I got it bad
Just like that she's gone like that
Just like me she don't like me
And when she rides alone she rides alone
And when I ride alone I just wanna get home
Just like that she's gone like that
Just like her I got it bad
Just like that she's gone like that
Just like me she don't like me
And when she rides alone she rides alone
And when I ride alone I just wanna get home

And when she rides alone she rides alone
And when I ride alone I just wanna get home
And when she rides alone she rides alone
And when I ride alone I just wanna get home

He's On Drugs Again

He's on drugs again
He's showing up for work again
Proudly signs his secret name
He'll never give them what they want
He's on drugs again
He can't help himself he's full of love
He's got that kind of love that makes you sick when you've got too much
He will blind the masses with his majesty
He will leave them deaf and dumb in total ecstasy
The birth of beauty from the lips of leprosy
Let the children fly make the world believe
He's in tears again
No lesser love could so destroy a man
He suffers on a grander scale than any lesser man could bear
But he has no choice must never compromise his voice
But there's always room for time and there's always time to sleep in his room
He will blind the masses with his majesty
He will leave them deaf and dumb in total ecstasy
The birth of beauty from the lips of leprosy
Let the children fly make the world believe

He will blind the masses with his majesty
He will leave them deaf and dumb in total ecstasy
The birth of beauty from the lips of leprosy
Let the children fly make the world believe

Never Really Mine

She sat and watched him for a long time
He walked away from her not in a straight line
He was never really mine
He was never really mine
He told the story with a punchline
She laughed politely for the last time
She was never really mine
She was never really mine
Although his names been written on her heart
They'll be shining and burning just like two stars
Hanging in the sky next to each other but apart

He made a wrong turn on the west side
While she made the phone call that changed her life
He was never really mine
He was never really mine
Although his names been written on her heart
They'll be shining and burning just like two stars
Hanging in the sky next to each other but apart

She wrote a song about the good life
And he wrote one back explaining his side
Yeah he replied
You were never really mine

Kill the Bottle

Baby it's alright if you can't take it I won't make you try

And think about it
Talk about it
Don't wanna know

Magnetic Fields

When bodies move in slow motion
A meaningful collision
When bodies move in tandem
Life doesn't seem so random
Magnetic fields
Magnetic fields
Magnetic fields
Magnetic fields crushing love
Magnetic fields crushing love

A signature imprinted from memory dictated
Through written words unspoken
Chain of events is unbroken
Magnetic fields

Magnetic fields crushing love
Magnetic fields crushing love

Crushing love
Crushing love

Magnetic fields crushing love
Magnetic fields crushing love
Magnetic fields crushing love

Buried Plans

Such a loner
Hardly bring anyone over
I keep everything as quiet as i can
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
And over I
I just think it over
I've got lots of buried, buried plans

Such a loner
Hardly bring anyone over
I keep everything as quiet as i can

And over I
I just think it over
I've got lots of buried, buried plans

 I Don't Know What To Do With My Hands

The couch is an island
A desert oasis
The room is a spaceship
And you're an undiscovered planet

I push the hair out of my eyes
I pull the blanket around me
I bite my nails, scratch my shoulder
I peel the label off the bottle
And tear it into tiny pieces

I don't know what to do with my hands
I don't know what to do with my hands

Maybe the phone will ring
And then i'll get to answer it
A momentary distraction
I can't predict your reaction to my touch
I could sit here all night
Our knees almost touching
But not ever quite
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
I don't know what to do with my hands
I don't know what to do with my hands
I don't know what to do with my hands
I don't know what to do with my hands

I can't decide on a channel
I'm just flipping around, maybe you can choose
Maybe some kind of monster
Maybe I just don't know how to reach out

I don't know what to do with my hands
I don't know what to do with my hands
I don't know what to do with my hands
I don't know what to do with my hands

I kinda want it to stay this way
No wrong moves, no mistakes
Nothing lost, nothing broken
Like a boat on a windless ocean

I don't know what to do
I don't know what to do
I don't know what to do
I don't know what to do

Far From The Roses

From the bread and the fire where they sharpen the wagon
From the pasture and high stream, giving tree and village green
To here, to what this is, whatever that is

They say where your heart is is where your home is
Distracted enough to lose all your focus
So far from roses
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
From the dragon, crease, from men and slaves
Over crevasses, you can fall to your death
From the bread and the fire where they sharpen the wagon
From the pasture and high stream, giving tree and village green
To here, to what this is, whatever that is

They say where your heart is is where your home is
Racing leaves on shadow stream and a concrete vine
Pretended to hold still
They say where your heart is is where your home is
Distracted enough to lose all your focus
So far from roses

You are the audience, you're in the only seat
You paid the backdrop and direct you the whole team
The answer is almost always work, it's what you need
Tiny victories and bursts of speed

They say where your heart is is where your home is
Racing leaves on shadow stream and a concrete vine
Pretended to hold still
They say where your heart is is where your home is
Distracted enough to lose all your focus
So far from roses

If I Wanted Trouble

I'll just sit here and watch you smoke
Content to think but never know
Maybe get just a little high
Just enough to unclose one eye

If I wanted trouble, I could find it
If I wanted trouble, I could get it
If I wanted trouble, I could find it
If I wanted trouble, I could get it

This growing up, it never ends
The same mistakes come back again
I toss and turn when I'm asleep
But in the day I'm making peace

If I wanted trouble, I could find it
If I wanted trouble, I could get it
If I wanted trouble, I could find it
If I wanted trouble, I could get it
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
If I wanted trouble, I could find it, I could find it
If I wanted trouble, I could get it, I could get it
If I wanted trouble, I could find it, I could find it
If I wanted trouble, I could get it, I could get it

Maxon

All I have is a maxon and a five wat amp
No none volt, now I walk to the store
Should be taping boxes, gotta move some things
All I have is a maxon and a five wat amp
No none volt, now I walk to the store
Should be taping boxes, gotta move some things
Keep promises and calendars

But I slip off into dreamland
The waking kind, the walking of the clearing mind
I need some margin, room to think
One more day I'm on the break

Too many questions i'm slow to react
I Run to dreams and run from facts
Something hurts I don't know what it is
Let it all fall apart

But I slip into pictures that never were
And coulden't happen in this world
I always think that chance will nod at me
turn the blind, I wave the fee

I should hurry but I take my time
It keeps the panic level low
Don't have pitty but have sympathy
You never know how it will go
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
But I slip off into dreamland
The waking kind, the walking of the clearing mind
I need some margin room to think
One more day I'm on the break

Wish You Were Upstairs

I wish you were upstairs
I wish you were there
I'm a prisoner in my house
I wish you were upstairs
I wish you were there
I'm a prisoner in my house
You're letting the air

But it's so easy to stop trying
When no one's watching you dying
And the curtains are still drawn
But the day is getting on

And who knows where I am
Who knows where I am?
Connect to the sun, contentment will come
And trance no one
Worst then a gun and trance no one
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
There's no ringing bell to cast the spell
Your'e the one who's in control
What the hell
But it's so easy to stop trying
When no one's watching you dying
And the day is getting on
But the curtains are still drawn

And who knows where I am
Who knows where I am
Connect to the sun, contentment will come
And trance no one
It's worst then a gun and trance no one

Mixed Feelings

You're sure one minute it all seems clear
But were you just making the choice that was near
I wait and only briefly can't name the sensation
Either way it's not okay, I got mixed feelings

The sun's not working on me
It doesn't make me wanna leave the house
Stuff your feelings back in your mouth

I'm afraid of moments bursting, mixed feelings (If I speak my mind)
All the furniture catching fire, I got mixed feelings (If I say it the sure way)
Don't you get tired of always being in the ruff, I got mixed feelings
It was endless, it never ends, I got mixed feelings

The sun's not working on me
It doesn't make me wanna leave the house
Stuff your feelings back in your mouth
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
In this distant building, I've got mixed feelings (If I speak my mind)
Four eyes into empty glasses (If I say it the sure way)
You're sure one minute, it all seems clear (If I speak my mind)
All the furniture catching fire, I got mixed feelings (If I say it the sure way)
Four eyes into empty glasses, I got mixed feelings (If I speak my mind)

Radio Static

All the things that I've done wrong
For every one a hundred songs
Do I really need someone
Or do I need to be alone

It's not yet what I know
It's mostly radio static

I'm up and down and up again
I never start it never ends
I really gotta get t you
I really don't know what to do

I'm sick with love that's got nowhere to go
Through radio static

I won't hide my child's eyes
Let them look at ugly things
'Cause I see beauty everywhere
Like in the grey foggy air

Silver looks like white and gold
Gorgeous radio static
Silver looks like white and gold
Gorgeous radio static
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Gorgeous radio static
Gorgeous radio
Gorgeous radio static
Gorgeous radio

Lonely Low

Held on the ceiling with your feet
Run outside passed midnight screaming
Stumble in my direction with bloodshot eyes
With your hands in front of you like a zombie

Lonely Low, lonely low
Lonely Low, lonely low

But if you could sleep in peace
Everyone would be so relieved
Your friends and family could finally breathe
How will you end all this misery

Lonely Low, lonely low
Lonely Low, lonely low

Do you believe in nothing
Can't you believe in something
If not for yourself, I only have these minutes
For you, there's nothing left defending

Lonely Low, lonely low
Lonely Low, lonely low

Lonely Low, lonely low
Lonely Low, lonely low
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Lonely Low, lonely low
Lonely Low, lonely low
Lonely low

Waiting For You

I was waiting for you
Backstage, and in friends' homes
I was waiting for you
In the street, and in the night
I was waiting for you
Now you're here
Now you're here

All the time that I let slip by
I was worrying
In the end, you found me and
We were rebuilding
In the day, and in my mind
I was waiting for you
Washing clothes, standing in line
I was waiting for you

Like and island, ok, I guess
Oh, but half asleep
I recognize my home address
I was ground and beach
The air around me was still
Locked out, still outside
You re-imagined the story
You rewrote every line
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
But I'm still waiting for you
Start again, in a foreign town
This is how it is
Head down
I wash the dish and I twist the lid
Are you near
Are you near

In a striped shirt
And a grand tote bag
I didn't see your ring
Scan my street, I haven't seen you since
Were you just visiting

Like an island, ok, I guess
Still a third asleep
I recognize my home address
I ground my wings
Standing on love's corner
Waiting for my ride
To get your house in order
They say it must come from inside

Les années réinventées
Tu as un tel effet
Tu ne dois pas oublier
T''es ma sorcière et ma fée

From every apartment
A different kind of rhyme
Not done walking
I pass so many rhymes

Away Again

I was sitting in my car
Looking at the house
I was in the audience
I was standing in the back of the club
They're selling the house

Something's gone
I can't find
What I left
In the basement
How long has it been gone

I like dreaming
Where everything is new
And nothing has been decided upon
Like how you feel or what to do

Something's lost
The life you wanted to live
Let me leave
Don't listen to me

Don't go away again
Don't go away again
Don't send me away again
I won't send you away again

Don't go away again
Don't go away again
Don't send me away again
I won't send you away again

$ 1.000 Wedding

( Gram Parsons tribute )

Evan Dando
It was a $1000 wedding supposed to be held the other day and
With all the invitations sent
The young bride went away
When the groom saw people passing notes
Not unusual, he might say
But where are the flowers for my baby
I'd even like to see her mean old mama
And why ain't there a funeral, if you're gonna act that way
Supposed to be a funeral
It's been a bad, bad day


Evan Dando & Juliana Hatfield  
I hate to tell you how he acted when the news arrived 
He took some friends out drinking and
It's lucky they survived


Evan Dando
Well, he told them everything there was to tell there along the way
And he felt so bad when he saw the traces
Of old lies still on their faces
So why don't someone here just spike his drink
Why don't you do him in some old way
Supposed to be a funeral
It's been a bad, bad day


Evan Dando & Juliana Hatfield 
The Reverend Dr. William Grace
Was talking to the crowd
All about the sweet child's holy face and
The saints who sung out loud


Evan Dando
And he swore the fiercest beasts 
Could all be put to sleep the same silly way
And where are the flowers for the girl
She only knew she loved the world


Evan Dando & Juliana Hatfield 
And why ain't there one lonely horn and one sad note to play

Evan Dando
Supposed to be a funeral
It's been a bad, bad day
Supposed to be a funeral
It's been a bad, bad day

( Juliana Hatfield & Frank Smith - Sittin' in a Tree EP )

You need to wake up and you need your breakfast at seven
You need assurance that you're going to go to heaven
Three sixty four were for you

You need a woman to make you feel like a man
All your assumptions are wrong I'm not what you think I am
Three sixty four were for you

I'm taking off I'm not telling anyone where I go
I'll let go the reins and I’ll jump in the fire with my eyes closed
Three sixty four were for you

But this day is mine so say goodbye
I wonder what you will do when you find me gone
Who will feed you stroke your ego and love your songs
Three sixty four were for you
But this day is mine so say goodbye
This day is mine say goodbye
This day is mine do it yourself just this one time
Say goodbye this day is mine
Say goodbye this day is mine
Say goodbye cause this day is mine
Say goodbye this day is mine

5th of July

( Juliana Hatfield Download Experiment )

I haven't eaten or slept but I'm not hungry or tired
I haven't taken anything but I am so wired
Round about midnight that was when I hit the highway
The heat lighting was so close
I don't wish that you were here
You can't give me everything my dear
That song comes on the radio and I never want to die
The tension builds and I swallow hard so I don't start to cry
I'm going really fast I'm singing at the top of my lungs
And when it gets to the chorus it’s like an orgasm
I wish that you could see
How much happier I am when I am free
What I am and what you want me to be
It’s not the same thing
What I am and what you want me to be
It’s not the same thing
Being alone comes so naturally to me
Maybe I'm some kind of freak
The thunder finally breaks it echoes fate
The rain is pounding on the roof all the windows down this is so great
Cars are pulled over under underpasses
Waiting out the storm I hope it lasts
I never liked the way you hate the rain
I always loved hurricanes
What I am and what you want me to be
It’s not the same thing it’s not the same thing
What I am and what you want me to be
It’s not the same thing
What I am and what you want me to be
What I am and what you want me to be
What I am and what you want me to be

A Beer And A Shot

( Juliana Hatfield & Frank Smith - Sittin' in a Tree EP )

I used to be so unsatisfied
The sun never would shine on me
With all the rain clouds in my head
Looking for glory and love in the sky
I figured out that we were aiming too high
No wonder we're disappointed all the time
Now all I want is a beer and a shot
One thing I know I can depend on

I can see that everything's ok
I thank god when the sun comes up
On another day
People love and then they don't
They come on fast and they go so slow
I sit down and I raise my cup
Here's to growing up
A beer and a shot is all I want
One thing I know I can depend on
Much is made of the dark side but it's just another place to hide
Might as well share the pain ‘cause we're all the same
And just to be alive is a triumph in my eyes

All the rain clouds in my head
Now all I want is a beer and a shot
One thing I know I can depend on

Anymore

( Juliana Hatfield Download Experiment )

I was standing in your room
I was gonna make it up to you
To save what we have got we got a lot
I was sitting on your bed
Make amends for what I said
I could cook your favourite dinner
But then I thought
I don't live with you anymore
I don't live
I don't live
I don't live with you anymore
I don't live
I don't live
And my friends they wanna know
The perfect guy where did he go
I can't bring myself to tell them no
Try to keep the dream alive
I say oh he's right inside
They call your name it echoes in a lie
I don't live with you anymore
I don't live
I don't live
I don't live with you anymore
I don't live
I don't live
And I guess that’s just the way it goes
Is this just the way it goes
But you never answered me before you went away
I don't live with you anymore
I don't live
I don't live
I don't live with you anymore
I don't live
I don't live
I don't live with you anymore
I don't live
I don't live
I don't live with you anymore
I don't live
I don't live
I don't live
Don't live don't live
I don't live with you anymore
I don't live
I don't live
I don't live

As If Your Life Depended On It

( Please don't disturb EP )

Say hello
As if your life depended on it
Crack a joke, light his smoke
As if your life depended on it

You can't handle his beautiful eyes
And all they symbolize
No flowers in your bottles
No view of the moon from you room
No baby in your belly too

Behind your sleepy eyes
You're hyper-aware of time
Ticking away towards your bed
( Towards your bed )
No one to go home to
Your life is boring you
So you're living for the guy that you just met
( That just met )

There's no such thing as pleasant conversation
It's all just drowning victims gasping for air
You need somebody to save you now
'Cause you are surrounded and they're closing in

He gives me a beer
I take a sip
As if my life depended on it
'Cause everything matters
And if he doesn't take me up inside
I know I'm gonna die

Behind your sleepy eyes
You're hyper-aware of time
Ticking away towards the end
( Towards the end )
No one to go home to
Your life is boring you
So you're living for the guy that you just met
( That you just met )

No one to go home to
My life is boring too
So you put it all on the guy that you just met

Baby It's Alright

( Juliana Hatfield Download Experiment )

Remember when the world was new
Before it took anything from you
I watch you walk away
I don't know what to say
But one thing I know is true
This feeling hanging over you
It goes away
Baby it's alright
Baby it's alright
Baby it's alright
You're gonna make it through the night

I'm looking up at you
You're standing on the roof
I know I can't compete with your history
But I’ll make the coffee strong
And put on your favorite song
Baby it's alright
Yeah baby it's alright
Yeah baby it's alright
You're gonna make it through the day
Yeah baby it's alright
Yeah baby it's alright
Yeah baby it's alright
You're gonna make it through the night
Baby it's alright
Baby it's alright
Baby it's alright
Baby it's alright
Yeah baby it's alright
Yeah baby it's alright
You're gonna make it through the night
Yeah baby it's alright
Yeah baby it's alright
Yeah baby it's alright
You're gonna make it through the day
Baby it's alright
Baby it's alright
Baby it's alright
You're gonna make it through the day
Baby it's alright
Yeah baby it's alright
Baby it's alright
You're gonna make it
Baby it's alright
Baby it's alright
Baby it's alright
You're gonna make it through the night
You're gonna make it

Bad Dream

( Juliana Hatfield Download Experiment )

4:30 AM I woke up and the bed was wet
So dirty am I covered in somebody's sweat
Covered in sweat don't sweat it
Had a bad dream that you forgot me
Had a good cry and you held me

My aching lips a place you keep returning to
Why is it so hard to believe that you keep wanting me
Is it just my body that you love that I could accept
Had a bad dream that you forgot me
Had a good cry then you held me

I find myself attached and it would be so easy for you to let it fade away
Because time apart evaporates everything we felt and what I was gonna say
Had a bad dream that you forgot me
Had a good cry then you held me
Had a bad dream that you forgot me
Had a good cry then you held me

Beautiful Creature

( Juliana Hatfield Download Experiment )

My baby he don't know me
He refuses to see my misery
I feed him pills stop eating
When we make out he doesn't look at me
And I'm all alone
Do you wanna be my enemy
The truth is not what you believe
I jump right in the black river
From the shore he screams no more
I crawl back out still laughing
Clean as rain heart of stone
This dirty game
Do you wanna be my enemy
The truth is not what I believe

I don't wanna be your enemy
But there’s nothing left for us to be

Because We Love You

( Demo )

Tried everything to get you back
Even put a monkey on my back
Have another drink if it makes you laugh
We tried everything cause we love you

We tried everything to get you back
You could put a monkey on my back
Have another drink if it makes you laugh
We tried anything cause we love you
Cause we love you

Better Than Nothing

( Juliana Hatfield Download Experiment )

Every day it’s something
When you want that one thing
But I’ve got someone to talk to on the phone
So maybe I don't have anyone at home
Well you can't have everything
A wise man once sang to me
So what if we just shoot the breeze
Talking to you is better than nothing
Better than nothing
When you look at me what do I see
I see flowers blooming endlessly
But do you see nothing but the blue of my eyes
I'm eighteen and blushing at the notion of love
I wanna give you something
But you have everything
So what if we're not touching
Just thinking of you is better than nothing
Better than nothing
Better than nothing
Better than nothing
The northern lights are gone
And the stars are lost
And it’s cold as hell
But I swear it’s better than nothing

The northern lights are gone
And the stars are lost
And it’s cold as hell
But I swear it’s better
Better than nothing
Better than nothing
Better than nothing
Better than nothing

Blue

( Live / The Jayhawks )

Where have all my friends gone ?
They've all disappeared
Turn around maybe one day
You're all that was there

Stood by unbelieving
Stood by on my own
I always thought I was someone
Turned out I was wrong

You brought me through
You made me feel

So Blue,
Why don't you stay behind ?
So Blue,
Why don't you stop and look at what's going down ?

If I had an old woman
She'd never sell me a lie
It's hard to sing with someone
Who won't sing with you
Give all of my mercy
Give all of my heart
Never thought that I'd miss you
That I'd miss you so much

You brought me through
You made me feel

So Blue,
Why don't you stay behind ?
So Blue,
Why don't you stop and look at what's going down ?

All my life
I stayed in line
For someone I could
Show the door
Nothing seems to change
You come back in my arms.

So Blue...
Why don't you stay behind ?
So Blue...
Why don't you stop and look at what's going down ?
Yeah yeah yeah, so blue.
Why don't you stop and look at what's going down ?

Break My Heart

( Juliana Hatfield Download Experiment )

We look better in the candlelight
And a couple of glasses of red wine
The TV glow it fascinates me
Hanging out life is hazy
Oh I wish that I could set this night on fire
Give me a reason to get up and run
Oh you must be the one to break my heart
Break my heart
Break my heart

Where is that power over me
What happens to the passion
Conversations we've had before
Your hands don't turn me on anymore
Oh I wish that you could keep me up all night
But I'm tired and I wanna dream of somebody who might
Break my heart
Break my heart
Break my heart
Break my heart
Playing with your gun
Break my heart
Trying to get drunk

Oh I'm sorry that I keep you up all night
But I'm not tired I’ve been lonely all my life
Break my heart
Break my heart
Break my heart
Break my heart
Break my heart
Break my heart
Break my heart
Break my heart
Break my heart

Charity

This is my house, I welcomed you in.
You're pissing on my rug, you need breaking in.
And these are my words, I could teach you to read,
But you won't understand this is fucking poetry.

I gave you my best, call it charity,
But maybe I guess that nothing is free.
Your would have me pay, I know jealousy,
So easily read. You wish you were me.

This is my baby you can't take her away.
A miracle baby you would have them hate.
You'll be a killer if I gave you a second thought.
But my baby is protected.
She is loved.
Don't you get it. Get it.

I gave you my best, call it charity.
But maybe I guess that nothing is free.
Your would have me pay, for just being.
I know you but you don't know shit about me.
Yeah.

This is goodbye to scent and fury.
You are a coward, cowering behind a wall.
You won't even show your face, only words on paper.
'Cause man to man you would fall.

I gave you my best, it was charity.
But maybe I guess that nothing is free.
I will never pay for just being me.
You will never know what you're missing.
Missing, missing, missing, missing, missing.

Don't Walk Away

Live in your dreams
You're shell-shocked when you're not sleeping
Making out with scars in your eyes
In total silence
Nothing to lose
Won't you turn to me
Ohhhh, don't walk away
Oooooh, don't walk away

Your masterpiece
You saw it yesterday on TV
Can you see me mouthing your name?
Praying for the breakdown
When I will know what you really mean
Ohhhh, don't walk away
Oooooh, don't walk away

It could be true
What you do to me
Don't leave. Want to start a fire
Melt that frozen [?????]

Can you hear me mouthing your name
In total silence
Aching to go, I'm so afraid
Ohhhh, don't walk away
Oooooh, don't walk away

Nothing to lose
Won't you turn to me

*** Thanx a lot to michal for this one ***

Don't Wanna Be The One

( Juliana Hatfield & Frank Smith - Sittin' in a Tree EP )

I'm not gonna tell you to wait 6 months
Cause you're too in love to listen to anyone
And I'm not gonna tell you that the worst that can happen sometimes does
Cause I don't want to be the one to ruin all your fun
I don't want to be the one
I'm not gonna tell you how sometimes it rains
And rains and rains until the levees break
And I'm not gonna tell you that it doesn't matter anyway
Cause I don't want to be the one to ruin all your fun
I don't want to be the one
I'm not gonna show you all my bruises and scars
And I'm not gonna tell you how lucky you are
And I'm not gonna say don't spend all your money on that girl
‘Cause she's gonna leave you that's the way of the world
You'll see
You're not always gonna feel this way
And time's a race
You'll wake up one day without your pretty face

I don't want to be the one to rain on your parade
I don't want to be the one

Dune

( Juliana Hatfield Download Experiment )

It’s trash day I'm giving away old clothes and jewellery to the Salvation Army
And take my drugs I wanna be clean I don't wanna feel like a dream
I'm off the radio and television I'm back from Japan like Jesus risen
The only thing I didn't have it was on my brain oh so bad
It was the last thing left to do when she finally came we named our baby Dune
We can live with nothing
I've travelled around I’ve lost my shit but right down the street I found it
The only thing I didn't have it was on my brain oh so bad
It was the last thing left to do when she finally came we named our baby Dune

The only thing I didn't have it was on my brain oh so bad
It was the last thing left to do when she finally came we named our baby Dune

Fade Away

This is not a monument.
This is not a holy writ
Pull my photo from the sun
To make way for the coming one.

Ahh, ahhh ahhh... ahhh, ahhh, ahhh

I am not an innocent.
This is not an accident.
In the rosy gloom of youth
Every moment has its truth.

It's gonna fade away,
It's gonna fade away,
Like God today,
It's gonna fade away

There is nothing I can say
That is not a cliche.
Love is not original,
It's not irreplaceable.

You are not the only one
Carrying a loaded gun.
This is not an attitude
That looks very good on you.

It's gonna fade away,
It's gonna fade away,
Like God today,
It's gonna fade away

Ahhhhhh....

It's gonna fade away,
It's gonna fade away,
Like God today,
It's gonna fade away

*** Thanx a lot to michal for this one ***

Feed me

( I see you EP )

Oh baby if only you knew
I'm down to a hundred-and-two
Oh baby if only you know
Oh baby...

I had a hole in my heart
So I threw away my plate
'Cos nothing would fill me up
Whatever I ate

Oh baby if only you knew
I don't know what to do
Oh baby if only you knew
Oh baby...

Fading away
'Cos there's nothing I can do
I hate my self
And I love you

Oh baby if only you knew
Whenever I think I think of you
Oh baby if you only knew-ew, yeah...

My-y-y-y-y-y-y baby
I'm hungry
Oh baby... X7

Fireflies

( Juliana Hatfield Download Experiment )

When I let the sky fall down on me do you wish we had never met
Or do you think that we're the same letting rain get us soaking wet
But when you say you love me I can't believe that it could be true
It’s just an idea that you had of someone you never really knew

And when a fantasy is real like sleeping with your hero
How can you trust the way you feel I rewind back to triple zero
We are just like children trying to catch fireflies
We want what we can't have we run away into the twilight
At the end of the day when everything changes and for a minute we feel ok
And we're not afraid of things that stay the same

We are just like children trying to catch fireflies
We want what we can't have we run away into the twilight

Fool Money

( Juliana Hatfield Download Experiment / Robot City Demo Version )

Jehovah knocking at my door
What can I say
I gave him some
He wanted more
So I paid
And now he's gone
Another round for everyone
Now it’s all about the Washington’s
Money made a fool out of me
Made me believe in things I don't believe
Nothing saved for a rainy day
Free me from my money

Guilty of the fashion of the day
Dirty old jeans
I dropped several hundred on the pair I never wear
Penthouse suite on my knees
Throwing up vanilla martinis
Oh god please
Money made a fool out of me
Made me need things that I don't need
Nothing saved for a rainy day
Free me from my money

From this bus I'm taking home
You can have all my diamonds from Sierra Leone
Money made a fool out of me
Surrounded me with things that I don't need
Nothing saved for a rainy day
Free me from my money

For The Lonely Ones

( Juliana Hatfield Download Experiment )

Am I the only one the only lonely one
I feel like the only one
Do you ever feel like a stranger in your skin
Did he take from you what you would have gladly given him
Lose it all over again thinking of the way that he wept
Am I the only one the only lonely one
I feel like the only one the only lonely one
I can't be the only one the only lonely one
Am I the only one
They're sorry in my dreams and everything’s all right
But when I wake it’s so hard to hold onto
I cannot win this fight
I hide a lifetime of shame everything I’ve touched has turned away
Am I the only one the only lonely one
I feel like the only one the only lonely one
I can't be the only one the only lonely one
Am I the only one
In the night time dream a lifeline

Am I the only one the only lonely one
I feel like the only one the only lonely one
I can't be the only one the only lonely one
I'm not the only one
In the night time dream a lifeline

Get Off

( Please don't disturb EP )

It doesn't matter what I say
You're gonna crush me anyway
It doesn't matter what I do
You'll find a way to crush it too

In your mind you can create anything at all
It projects on the walls of your heart
What a beautiful vision, oh you can feel
What you want but it's not really real

When will you get off of me
You must get off of me
Because I can hardly breathe
Get off of me, yeah

It doesn't matter what I mean
You misinterpret everything
It doesn't even bother you
The evil way I look at you

In your mind you can create anything at all
It projects on the walls of your heart
What a horrible nightmare, oh you can feel
If you want but it's not really real

When will you get off of me
You must get off of me
I'm not here to serve your needs
Get off of me

When will you get off of me
You must get off of me
I didn't do anything
Get off of me

Girl in old blue volvo disowns self

( Universal Heartbeat EP )

Bill and I were sisters in another life.
That is why his music makes me cry -
Not because I love him and not because he's really foxy
(Lowest common denominator in the rock scene).

Ride in my Swedish car, Swedish car.
Drive with a sexy young road star.
Buy not American.
(American everything falls apart).

Cigarette butts are piling up
In my Denny's coffee cup that I stole
From a Denny's in godforsaken Texas.
Where is he now?
(Now that I don't care).
He could be in Germany.
He could be just about anywhere.

Ride in my swedish car, swedish car.
Drive with a sexy young road star.
Buy not American.
(American everything falls apart).

I don't expect to live to forty.
I didn't think I'd live past twenty-five.
To be afraid of living is to be afraid of dying.
How can you get past this and cherish the fear of flying?

Ride in my Swedish car, Swedish car.
Drive with a sexy young road star.
I'm not American, I'm a European bastard.

Give Me Some Of That

( Please don't disturb EP )

Give me some of that
You're so young
You don't even know
What you have
Give me some of that
Give it back
I do appreciate
That you have

Too much money
For two hands
Too many days and nights
Too many demands

Give me some of that
You don't really need it
You don't really care
Baby take it all back
You never had to fight
But you still want it
To comfort you
You're like a little kid

With too many choices
Too many habits
Too many places
Too many friends

If I had
Some of what you had
I would be so
So fucking glad
If I had
Half of what you had
I could live off it forever
I would make it last
I want it so much
I want it so bad
Tell everybody
But no one gives a damn

Too much freedom
For one person
You get to have
Too much fun

If I had
Some of what you had
I would be so
So fucking glad
If I had
Half of what you had
I could feel off it forever
I would make it last
I want it so much
I want it so bad
Tell everybody
But no one gives a damn

Give me some of that!

Going Nowhere

( Juliana Hatfield Download Experiment )

Could the sun be coming up at last
Is it not impossible to score a second chance
Inside me all over you and the dream is true
And I wonder could this be real
Not afraid of feeling what I feel
Going nowhere is alright if you're right here
I'm following I'm following your heart
Sick of being me but we can't change who we are
You hold me up I’ll never put you down I look around
And I wonder could this be real
Not afraid of feeling what I feel
Going nowhere is alright if you're right here
Could today be written in the stars
I thought love could only break my heart
But now I know it wasn't true and I have you
And I wonder could this be real
Not afraid of feeling what I feel
Going nowhere is alright if you're right
Nowhere is alright if you're right here

Hello my name is baby

( For the birds EP )

You gimme lots of love
'Cause it was something that I needed
And you'd do anything
If you had a reason
A reason a reason

Fall down baby I pick you up
Fall down baby I pick you up
Call now baby I'll come right up
You're so lazy you'll kiss my butt

I hate the way
You say my name
It's not ok
Baby's not my name

I know a lot of pretty girls
And I sure know how to please 'em
They run to me and say
Baby won't you please give me some
Give me some give me some

Fall down baby I pick you up
Fall down baby I pick you up
Call be Baby I'll cut your glass
You're so crazy you'll kiss my ass

I hate the way
You say my name
It's not ok
Baby's not my name

Fall down baby I pick you up
Fall down baby I pick you up
Call now baby I'll come right up
You're so crazy you'll kiss my butt

I hate the way
You say my name
It's not ok
Baby ain't my name

Here comes the pain

( I see you EP )

Here comes the pain again.
Here comes the pain again.
Never give in.
Never give in.

Said I'd never love again.
I was a virgin then.
I was alone and I still am.

Here comes the pain
Here comes the pain

Feel like an alien.
I am my only friend.
I can't relate to you or them.

Death's just up around the bend.
Don't really suck it in.
It's a beginning and not an end.

Here comes the pain X4

Here comes the pain X4

It's not enough, physical touch X10

Hope

( Descendents cover / Live )

Why can't you see you torture me
You're already thinking about someone else
When he comes home you'll be in your arms and I'll be gone
But I know
My day will come 
I know someday
I'll be the only one
So now you wait for his spark
You know it'll turn you on
He's gonna make you feel the way you want to feel
When he starts to lie when he makes you cry you know I'll be there
My day will come
I know someday
I'll be the only one
Call me selfish call me what you like
I think it's right to want someone for all your own
and not to share her love
And I'll have my way and won't have to say anyway
I've got you
You didn't stand a chance
You want perfection
I see your self destruction
You don't know what you want
It's gonna take you years to find out
I'm not giving up
And when you've had enough you'll take your bruised little head
And you'll come running back to me
You know that I'm gonna be the only one.

I Didn't Know

( Juliana Hatfield Download Experiment )

Baby I wanna go down to the floor
I don't think I can stand up anymore
Baby you know the way to make me feel
Like a little mother's child helpless and wild
I didn't know it would be even harder
In my imagination you know it blows my mind
Baby how many times I fantasized
Having a vision of truth in my room
Baby no honey don't move not so soon
This is not happening to be with you
I didn't know it would be even harder
And in my imagination know it blows my mind

I didn't know it would be even harder
And in my imagination you know it blows my mind

Kitten

( Juliana Hatfield & Frank Smith - Sittin' in a Tree EP )

I think my kitten ran away
I haven't seen my kitten since Saturday
She's long gone so let's pray
Will you shake that thing a little more
Shake it harder out the back door
I don't want her sleeping on some dirty floor
Oh I want my baby back
Oh I miss my pussycat
I want to hear her purr again
Like a brand new engine
Has anyone seen my kitten
My daddy threw her against the wall
She scratched his face and ran off
It's what she gets for being small
Oh I want my baby back
Oh I miss my pussycat
She's so soft delicate
She only tolerates a certain touch
She'll recoil if you love her too rough she's delicate

Oh I want my baby back
Oh I miss my pussycat

Made It

( Juliana Hatfield Download Experiment )

It’s taken me away
It’s taken me away
Every single day
How many times did you ask yourself
Will we ever be alone
I know I know I know
We made it made it
We made it
Oh we finally made it made it
We made it
Ooooh
You're pulling me away
I drink the drink you made
It’s such a simple game
The night was ours
At 7 am the alarm rang
We woke up and did it again
We made it made it
We made it
Oh we finally made it made it
We made it
Ohhhh
In my room get to know you
Morning comes I gotta go
One more time not so slow
Do it fast cause nothing lasts

We made it made it
We made it
Oh we finally made it
Oh yeah we made it
Ohhhh

Make It Home

( My So Called Life Soundtrack )

Hmm..mmm..mmm...
Mmm..mmm...
Mmm..mmm...
Mmm.....

Deepening night, think on a time
All was bright
Here in this dark place, I see in your face
All is not right

Make it, make your way home
Better than the last
Break it, break the alone
Take a second chance

Open a window, let in the snow
Cold is all I know
Go to the fire, stir it around
There's a warmer place for you to go

So, make it, make your way home
Better than you have
Break it, break the alone
Leave it in the past

Oh, look and you'll find it
Someone wants to love you
Look and you'll find it
Someone wants to love you

Wake it, wake your dream
One forgotten me
Sleepin' deep inside o' you
Heavenly peace

Mountains of Love

These feelings are mountains
I can't cross or get through
I love you for nothing
But what you were

You lift me above me
I'm coming to save you
Oh God I'm forgetting
To not remember

In a dream, I could see your face
Gotta leave that dream in its place
In the dark, where you are.
To carry on
From a place where all the dying live in the past
To carry on
From a place where all the dying live in the past

Great numbers of pictures
I'm counting and wishing
Replaying the great scenes
In my own movie

These feelings are mountains
Of ether, of water
Dissolving like teardrops
After a while

And in a dream, you were on a road
Leading to where, I don't know
But I won't be sad to see you go

To carry on
From a place where all the dying live in the past
To carry on
From a place where all the dying live in the past

*** Thanx a lot to michal for this one ***

My Drug Buddy

( Live at KCRW / Lemonheads )

Evan Dando
She's coming over 
We'll go out walking 
And make a call on the way 
She's in the phone booth now 
I'm looking in 
There comes a smile on her face 

They still got some of the same stuff we got yesterday 
They still got some of the same stuff we got yesterday, yeah

I'm too much with myself 
I want to be someone else 

Evan Dando & Juliana Hatfield  

I'm too much with myself
I want to be someone else
I'm too much with myself
I want to be someone else

Evan Dando
So we take off  at Fiona's door 
Walkin' till its light outside 
Like before when we were on the phone 
We have to laugh to look at each other 
We have to laugh because we're not alone 
As the cars fly up King Street
It's enough to startle us 
It's enough to startle us 

Evan Dando & Juliana Hatfield  
I love my drug buddy 
My drug, my drug buddy

Evan Dando
I love my drug buddy 
My drug, my drug buddy 

Needle In The Hay

(Elliott Smith cover / I Saved Latin! A Tribute To Wes Anderson LP)

Your hand on his arm
The hay stack charm around your neck
Strung out and thin
Calling some friend trying to cash some check
He's acting dumb
That's what you've come to expect

Needle in the hay
Needle in the hay
Needle in the hay
Needle in the hay

He's wearing your clothes
Head down to toes a reaction to you
You say you know what he did
But you idiot kid
You don't have a clue
Sometimes they just get caught in the eye
You're pulling him through

Needle in the hay
Needle in the hay
Needle in the hay
Needle in the hay

Now on the bus
Nearly touching this dirty retreat
Falling out 6th and Powell, a dead sweat in my teeth
Gonna walk walk
Four more blocks plus the one in my brain
Down downstairs to the man
He's gonna make it all OK

I can't beat myself
I can't beat myself
And I don't want to talk
I'm taking the cure so I can be quiet
Whenever I want
So leave me alone
You ought to be proud that I'm getting good marks

Needle in the hay
Needle in the hay
Needle in the hay
Needle in the hay

Needle in the hay
Needle in the hay
Needle in the hay
Needle in the hay

Never Coming Out

( Juliana Hatfield Download Experiment )

I can't see you anymore I'm shutting this door
I'm staying in tonight and for the rest of my life
I always seem to say and do the wrong thing in front of you
I'm sick of feeling like a fool so I'm going to my room
And I'm never coming out
I'm never coming out
Do it long enough you can live without
So I'm never never never coming out
Never coming out

Oh what they put you through
People can be so cruel
And they don't wanna hear the truth it’s easier to lie
He don't tell anyone he's gay he wants everyone to look the other way
Cause he's defeated before he even starts to explain
So he's never coming out
He's never coming out
He's been hurt enough he can scream and shout
But he's never never never coming out
Never coming out

I knew a guy he went for a swim he was singing as he dived in the water
A wave came and knocked him down
He's never coming out
Every time I let them in I fear they'll go back out again
It is a dream of mine to lock you in with me sometime
You're never coming out
You're never coming out
I'll be your best friend until the end
We're never never never coming out
Never coming out

Number One

( Juliana Hatfield Download Experiment )

I wrote this song for you
Because you asked me to
You said you don't hear a hit
So here it is here it is you asked for it
This is the number one
Song in the universe
The radio may try
And play the very worst
It cannot be denied
The masses have no taste
I don't care what they say
I'm at the top today

I don't care about the money or the sex
That’s not why we got into this

I only want you to have a blast
So fill it up with gas
Play me on the motorway
In your Chevrolet
This is the number one
Song in the universe
The radio may lie
The truth it never hurts
You know it’s really good
And if they had some taste
They'd put this record on
And keep it on all day

This is the number one
Song in the universe
The radio may lie
And say I'm never heard
It cannot be denied
The masses have no taste
I don't care what they say
I hit the top today

Only Love Can Break Your Heart

( Neil Young Cover )

When you were young and on your own
How did it feel to be alone
I was always thinking of games that I was playing
Trying to make the best of my time

But only love can break your heart
Try to be sure right from the start
Yes, only love can break your heart
What if your world should fall apart?

I have a friend I've never seen
He hides his head inside a dream
Someone should call him and see
If he can come out
Try to lose the time that he's found

But only love can break your heart
Try to be sure right from the start
Yes, only love can break your heart
What if your world should fall apart?

*** Thanx a lot to michal for this one ***

On Your Mind

( Juliana Hatfield & Frank Smith - Sittin' in a Tree EP )

Yesterday where you are can you see
I'm alone I miss you I'm grieving
Am I ever on your mind
Am I ever on your mind
Am I ever on your mind
Am I ever on your mind
All my dreams and visions guided me
Now it's done it unravelled so quickly
Am I ever on your mind
Am I ever on your mind
Am I ever on your mind
Am I ever on your mind
It's impossible to be anything but a memory
An unspoken feeling between two openings
In the kitchen carving pumpkins for Halloween
I'm gonna be a gypsy what are you gonna be
Am I ever on your mind
Am I ever on your mind
Am I ever on your mind
Am I ever on your mind
Am I ever on your mind
Am I ever on your mind
Am I ever on your mind
Am I ever on your mind

Perfect Stranger

( Juliana Hatfield Download Experiment )

I wanna go where no one knows my name or number
Keep myself safe inside
Covered in a little black dress and heels
Show you how love feels
And I will go before you leave
Baby there is no danger
You'll never know how much I need
I'll be the perfect stranger
I wanna be free someone else whose life is better
With someone's faith and someone's love letters
Whatever you want me to be
I won't ask you for anything
And I will go before you leave
Baby there is no danger
You'll never know how much I need
I am the perfect stranger
You will remember me as a dream a living thing a beautiful memory

And I will go before you leave
Maybe I’ll see you later
You'll never know how much I need
I am the perfect stranger
And I will go before you leave
Baby there is no danger
You'll never know how much I need
I am the perfect stranger

Pink Moon

( Live / Nick Drake )

I saw it written and I saw it say
Pink moon is on its way
And none of you stand so tall
Pink moon gonna get you all
It's a pink moon
It's a pink, pink, pink, pink, pink moon.

Put it away

( My sister EP )

I’m not afraid
No, I’m not a gay
You don’t have to pay
To hear what I say

Put it away
You can’t take it away
'Cos I won’t give it away

Some people got a lot of nerve
Think just because I’m a girl
Rock stars don’t you be so sure
You must’ve not heard me say

Put it away
You can’t take it away
'Cos I won’t give it away
Hey...

You’re just gonna have to wait
I ain’t gonna take that bait
Honey, honey, honey aren’t you ashamed?
Now put, put, put that thing away

Put it away
You can’t take it away
'Cos I won’t give it away

Put it away
You can’t take it away
'Cos I won’t give it away


Raisans

( Forever Baby EP )

The lights exploded
She stood burning in front of me
She ripped my heart out, and gave it to me
My eyes wouldn't open, cemented to her face
Have I begun a feeble chase

I'll be down, I'll be around
I'll be hanging where eventually you'll have to be
I'll just stare and hope you'll care
There's only everything standing in front of me

I know what you did to me
I know what you did was wrong
You're allowed to torture me
Wait a moment until I'm gone
I know you're the ticked, you gotta be
'Cos I let you be alone for long
Got to do something mean to me
Got to do something so I can't hang on

You're Killing Me X5

I'll be down, I'll be around
I'll be hanging where eventually you'll have to be
I'll just stare and hope you'll care
There's only everything standing in front of me

I'll be down, I'll be around
I'll be hanging where eventually you'll have to be
You're not mad, you're standing there
Now you've to decide the fate of my sanity

Rider

( I see you EP )

She wants the man
That's playing in the band
She can't get it up
She just wants to fuck

She's got the disease
The female disease
Aims only to tease
Always on her knees

She has no brain at all
Her head's about to fall
People always laughing
In her face and behind her back

Suckin' dick, kissin' butt,
Going down, open up

I saw you backstage
Pulling up your skirt
I wish it was a nightmare
Because it hurt
I see you do this to yourself
And every other girl
You're giving me a bad name
'Cause it's a mans mans mans mans
Mans mans mans mans world

Guilt by association
Makes it hard for me to work
It's nothing but a gaping hole
It's filling up with dirt

Hole so big i'm gonna drown
I dive right in and hit the ground
Hole so big i'm gonna drown
I dive right in and hit the ground

You stupid groupie
You stupid slut
By the time you're bruised and bloody
Have you had enough?
Or is there any blood left in you
Or are you really just a whore?
Do you think about what you've been doing
Or don't you wanna know?

Suckin' dick, kissin' butt,
Going down, open up
Oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh

Ruthless

( My sister EP )

Feeling ruthless like a rude guest,
Ruthless.
We're in the corner
Like flowers on the wall growing really small,
Really small, really small, really small.

They're all suckers for a chick who really rocks it hard.
We're all suckers for Ruthie.
Don’t they remember how we said "She’s gonna be a star"?
We'll be pining for Ruthie.

Hanging around, giving too much away.
Maybe we should go now. Go now.
This is a test, but it seems as if her best,
Just isn’t good enough.

We're all gushin, but I swear we really mean it, man.
We're all sucking up to Ruthie.
We're all licking at the blood, comes from her playing hand.
We all wish we were Ruthie.

We're all suckers for a girl who can really play guitar.
We're all suckers for Ruthie.
We’re all crying for like "Pack up and get in the car."
We're all dying for Ruthie.

Saving Myself

( Juliana Hatfield Download Experiment )

He picks up the tab
He wants to be proud
Driving him home the silence is loud
We once had a thing it never got off the ground
My second to last just fooling around
But now I'm saving myself for somebody else
And you never can tell
What somebody feels is it really for real
But there’s nobody else
The wind in your hair over the line
Then you start to rain my weather is fine
I try to find the words that mean it’s ok
I wish that I could just see your face
I'm saving myself for somebody else
And you never can tell
What this day will bring maybe it’s nothing
But I want no one else

I'm saving myself
There’s nobody else
Saving myself
I pick up the phone from my faraway home
And you sing me a song I’ve waited so long
I can't run when I know the feeling will follow
Follow me wherever I go
I'm saving myself for nobody else
And you never can tell
What anyone feels not sure if it’s real
But there’s nobody else
Nobody else
I'm saving myself for no one else

Say it Ain't So

( Live / Weezer Cover )

Somebody's Heine' 
Is crowdin' my icebox 
Somebody's cold one 
Is givin' me chills 
Guess I'll just close my eyes 

Flip on the tele' 
Wrestle with Jimmy 
Something is bubbling 
Behind my back 
The bottle is ready to blow 

Say it ain't so 
Your drug is a heartbreaker 
Say it ain't so 
My love is a lifetaker 

I can't confront you 
I never could do 
That which might hurt you 
So try and be cool 
When I say 
This way is a waterslide away from me that takes you further every day 
So be cool 

Dear Daddy, 
I write you in spite of years of silence. 
You've cleaned up, found Jesus, things are good or so I hear. 
This bottle of Steven's awakens ancient feelings. 
Like father, stepfather, the son is drowning in the flood. 

Say My Name

( Juliana Hatfield Download Experiment )

It’s easy to say
It’s only a name
But I’ve never heard it from you
And I really want to
Say my name
Say say my name
Say my name

I hear it every day
And it always sounds the same
But coming from you it will sound so new
All the way across the room
Say my name
Say say my name
Say my name

Have you heard of me
And when you go to speak
Will you flatter me by remembering
Not everyone can have
So I no longer ask
I only wish it I only whisper to myself
Please do it please
Say my name
Say say my name
Say my name

Sellout

( Please don't disturb EP )

I wasn't born into royalty
But I can try to buy in
I live in the land of opportunity
And stealing, cheating, and lying
And I need you to want me

I lost my attitude
I got a tattoo
I show some tit,
And let you pinch my ass
I'll cut you some slack

So why don't you want me
Why don't you want me
It's not a sellout if nobody buys it
I can't be blamed if nobody likes it

Should I keep smiling
Or should I start crying
I know that you love me
'Cause you said you did
You said that I was the real thing

Hey, where are you going
I thought that you told me
That if I learned how to play the game
Then I would win
If I learned how to say alright to everything

So why don't they want me
Why don't they want me
It's not a sellout if nobody buys it
I can't be blamed if nobody likes it

Can I redeem myself
Can I get back my name
I cannot show my face
In any decent place

I was only trying to make it
And now I cannot fake it anymore
Natives have Billboard
Take me for free I'm yours
La, la, la, la, la, whoo !

It's not a sellout if nobody buys it
I can't be blamed if nobody likes it

It's not a sellout if nobody buys it
I can't be blamed if nobody likes it

It's not a sellout if nobody buys it
I can't be blamed if nobody likes it

It's not a sellout
I can't be blamed

She's Out

( Juliana Hatfield Download Experiment )

She and her dog have been abused
She shows up with bruises on her arms
Who will rescue her
She can cover them
They go everywhere
She's a sweet girl
She never stole from a friend
She says hit me again
Then she goes over and she's out automatically
She never wins
Taste the thrill
Just the idea of it
Sweet as revenge
And as beautiful
She can't go back
She hasn't been home in four years
She says mama I get headaches when you don't listen
She says hit me again
Then she goes over and she's out automatically
She never wins

She tries her luck
Licks her wounds
She tries her luck
Luck has no mercy
She says hit me again
Then she goes over and she's out automatically
She never wins

She says hit me again
Then she goes over and she's out automatically
She never wins

She never wins
She never wins
She never wins

Stupid Thing

( Juliana Hatfield Download Experiment )

I did a stupid thing
I could've killed that girl
Her father spoke no English
But his hate was plain and I can't take it back
I can never go back
I didn't look both ways
When turning right on red
A split second's my undoing
I offered everything but I can't take it back
I can never go back
I can never go back
I can never go back
He had no sympathy
He had no sympathy
For my quiet tears of shame
Still I'm sorry when innocence is to blame

No no she said to him
I hate hospitals
I got finals in the morning
I am alright I think
I can't take it back
I can never go back
I can never go back
I can never go back

I did a stupid thing
I did a stupid thing
I did a stupid thing
I did a stupid thing
I did a stupid thing
I did a stupid thing
I did a stupid thing
I did a stupid thing

Sybil

( Juliana Hatfield Download Experiment )

Sybil's out of bed and she's feeling fine
Sybil's out of bed and she's feeling fine
Sybil's out of bed and she's feeling fine
Sybil's out of bed and she's feeling fine
Oh yeah

I saw her limping down the street
Head up from between her knees
Breakfast in the evening
She can't play and she can't sing
She stole a flower and I got caught
I trail behind her in the parking lot
I pick up all the things she dropped
She covets blood and wants to get a cut
Sybil's out of bed and she's feeling fine
Sybil's out of bed and she's feeling fine
Sybil's out of bed and she's feeling fine
Sybil's out of bed and she's feeling fine
Oh yeah

She puts rocks in your pockets
And sends you down to the rivers edge
With a kiss and one request
Bring me back some cigarettes
Her radio is much too loud
Pulled her car up on the yard
Throw the baby in the trash
Count me out she goes too fast
Sybil's out of bed and she's feeling fine
Sybil's out of bed and she's feeling fine
Sybil's out of bed and she's feeling fine
Sybil's out of bed and she's feeling fine
Oh yeah

This was not the last of times
Sybil kind of almost died
She gave them all another scare
I'm not sorry but I don't care
Sybil's out of bed and she's feeling fine
Sybil's out of bed and she's feeling fine
Sybil's out of bed and she's feeling fine
Sybil's out of bed and she's feeling fine
Oh yeah

Table for One

( Juliana Hatfield / Brian Vander Ark )

Table for one
Next to the window
Where I can see reflections of
A table for two
He's breaking the moves
And I'm watching her come undone.

Can you take away
The other person's place
I was always late
I guess they got tired of waiting

Table for one
Down near the back
Where I can relax
With a book in my face.

I got what I wanted, my freedom
So I raise this glass to myself and celebrate.
Two for one is what they're offering
And when you come, don't promise me anything
And still I wait, where is my dessert
I think I've been forgotten

A single rose from a fresh bouquet
A stomach pain and when I go it's all I will
Take away from this God-forsaken place.

*** Thanx a lot to michal for this one ***

Tamara

( Forever Baby EP )

Tomorrow I will run ten miles
Tomorrow I'm gonna try to smile
Tomorrow’s gonna be nice
Tomorrow’s sun will melt the ice

Tomorrow I’ll jump outta bed
Go straight to work, lift up my head
Tomorrow’s gonna make me strong
I’ll trim off the fat and throw it to the dogs

Tomorrow is a brand new day
Tomorrow she’s gonna bring a change
I already know how I wanna be
So tomorrow you can get together my new identity

Tomorrow I’ll look you in the eye
And tell you I apologize
Tomorrow I’ll find some way to show you
That I am, that I know you

Tomorrow's coming, I can almost taste it
I forget about all the words I wasted
Things I did, I can’t erase
I carry the weight of my mistakes
All the things I said you won't forget
Maybe Tamara ought to stay in bed

Sleep won’t make it go away
Tomorrow’s just turnin into today
Forgive me, man, for I have sinned
Can I back up and try again

The Edge Of Nowhere

( Please don't disturb EP )

Coming to the edge of nowhere
Daydreaming of unconsciousness
The closer that I get
The further I am gone

The horizon is steadier than steal
Where the world ends and the sun disappears
I can't move
The pain is too real
It slips into color I can feel
I can feel, I can feel, I can feel

The reds go up
The blues go down
The lights go off
The dark pulls on

The reds go up
The blues go down
The lights go off
The dark pulls on

Blood will see the fall will define
Valium sleep mixed with wine

If I jump will I fly ?
If I fall will I rise ?
If I jump will I fly ?
If I fall will I rise ?
Rise, rise.

The Only One

( Juliana Hatfield Download Experiment )

Sun setting on a dream
But it just won't die
I tried to kill it make it look like suicide
I walk all over my garden cause flowers never grow
But you remember planting those seeds with me a long time ago
You were the only one who didn't turn and run
The only one to keep on believing in me
You were holding on so hard when I wanted to fall apart
You were the only one
I spray paint my colours grey cause on the inside I am faded barely alive
Then I sent my love away but the river bent
My sinking spirits held up by one true friend
Though I tried so hard to just let it all end
You were the only one who didn't turn and run
The only one to keep on believing in me
You were holding on so hard when I wanted to fall apart
You were the only one

You were the only one who didn't turn and run
The only one to keep on believing in me
You were holding on so hard when I wanted to fall apart
You were the only one

Trick Baby

( Juliana Hatfield Download Experiment )

Come on baby don't you want me
I did the dishes but not the laundry
When you gonna get me my washing machine
Come on baby
Come on come on
Come on come on
Come on come on

Come on baby I feel so dirty
I still smell my perfume on you
Come on honey where’s my baby
I'm nearly thirty when you gonna give me a baby
Come on come on
Come on come on
Come on come on

Come on baby right here on the sheepskin rug
I won't even touch myself
I don't need to touch myself
My hands are tied
My hands are tied
My hands are untied
I'm so glad my views on you
Come on
Come on come on
Come on come on
Come on come on
Come on come on
Come on come on
Come on come on

Trying Not To Think About It

( Please don't disturb EP )

Southern California is bad for the soul
And New York City takes its toll
The Mississippi River has a mean undertow
How can I sheild myself from the things that I hear
I want to close my eyes and sleep for a year
Tell me that it's only a dream
That it's a nightmare

Trying not to think about it,
Trying not to think about it.

How can your mother be so strong
When her only baby is gone
I don't know where you are
Everything is wrong

So I'm trying not to think about it,
Trying not to think about it.

Wanna Be The One You Want

( Juliana Hatfield Download Experiment )

I wanna be the one you want
I wanna be the one you want
I wanna be the one you want
I wanna be the one

I want to be on your scene
I want your voice on my machine
I want you to chew my gum
I want you to suck my thumb

I wanna be the one you want
I wanna be the one you want
I wanna be the one you want
I wanna be the one

I want it in the morning
And I want it in the night
And I want it in the dark
And I want it in the light

I wanna be the one you want
I wanna be the one you want
I wanna be the one you want
I wanna be the one

I want to be in your dreams
I want to be happening
I want to know how it feels
I want you to make me real

I wanna be the one you want
I wanna be the one you want
I wanna be the one you want
I wanna be the one

I wanna be the one you want
I wanna be the one you want
I wanna be the one you want
I wanna be the one

I wanna be the one you want
I wanna wanna wanna be the one you want
I wanna be the one you want
I wanna wanna wanna be the one you want

I wanna be the one you want

Waves

( Volume 13 Compilation 1995 )

Waves affects the sea
Crashing agony
Tears a sickly state
To me, to me, to me, to me

Choking on the words
Dying to be heard
Arms around the song
The good is gone, the good is gone

Driving and crying
Where am i going?
Motion is emotion
Riding out the pain

Drowning in the rain
On a sunny day
Real escape's a dream
Can never remember what I do
Recall them all

He laughs at me 'cause I
Still can see the pictures
Printed on my mind
The night before, the night before

Driving and crying
Where am i going?
Motion is emotion
Riding out the pain X4
Pain

My wish in your hand
Dropped it in the gutter
Cruely you opened
Your eyes, your eyes, your eyes
Smiles

Driving and crying
Where am i going
Motion is emotion
Riding out the pain

We Will Rise Again

In the twilight yard, we made a pact
When they took my things and held you back
Does it get you down that they turned so fast
To the west and gone, shattered like glass

We'll rise again, yeah yeah
We'll rise again, yeah, yeah

Blinding lights, I miss the modern world
All the songs I've sung, that you've never heard
Your words, my pen, we can write the end
We did everything that we wanted

We'll rise again, yeah yeah
We'll rise again, yeah, yeah, yeah
Silence will end, Silence will end

Turn the record over, and wind the clock
In our own two hand, there's a telegram
Busy signals ring and machines say

We'll rise again, yeah yeah
We'll rise again, yeah, yeah
Silence will end

*** Thanx a lot to michal for this one ***

What Have You Done To You?

Waking up, hitting myself
With a headache and a hard-on
I can't control myself, I lose control, I lose it
I know i need to get some help.
You say i'm crazy, inconsistant and confusing, selfish too
And I know that it's all true.
If I'd an answer to your questions, all the reasoning
For what I did to you.
What have i done to you?
I was bad.....i feel like crap
I don't deserve to look into forgiving eyes.
Well thank the lord for all that i have taken
For the hearts that i am breaking
And then maybe tomorrow can i call you?
I was dumb, i didnt know that it would hurt
I will bite my tongue from now on when i want to shut you up
When i have had enough of you.
I will try harder to be nice and i will hide from the (lie?)
Your disgust upon my face.
What have I done to you?
Please forgive, I really didn't mean to.
What have i done to you?
Please believe i really didn't mean to.
I was drunk, I didn't know that it would hurt.
I am full of good excuses for what I have done to you.
What have you done to me?

Where would I be without you

( Universal Heartbeat EP )

I remember when you said how its all in my head.
You said 'He may be the first, but he doesn't have to be the last'.
Now, I gotta ask...

Where would I be without you? X4

So sick of sitting in that room,
Needing a new attitude.
I said 'I don't know what to do'.
You said, I gotta move.

Where would I be without you? X4

It's alright to feel okay.
Everything is easier that way.
Tell me, tell me once again
It's not the end.

Where would I be without you? X4

You showed me its a crime
To never even try.
I could say i'm super-fine, but that would be a lie.
Give it time and i'll change my mind.

Where would I be without you? X4

Witches’ Song

( Marianne Faithful / The Craft Soundtrack )

Shall I see tonight sister, bathed in magic greet
Shall we meet on the hilltop where the two roads meet.
We will form the circle, hold our hands and chant,
Let the great one know what it is we want.

Danger is great joy, dark is bright as fire,
Happy is our family, lonely is the ward.

Sister, we are waiting on the rock and chain
Fly fast through the airwaves, meet with pride and truth.

Danger is great joy, dark is bright as fire,
Happy is our family, lonely is the ward.

Father, we are waiting for you to appear.
Do you feel the panic, can you see the fear ?
Mother, we are waiting for you to give consent.
If there’s to be a marriage, we need contempt.

Danger is great joy, dark is bright as fire,
Happy is our family, lonely is the ward.

La da da da da da, la la la la la .
La da da da da da, la la la la la .
La da da da da da, la la la la la
La da da da da da, la la la la la ...

Yardsailing

( Universal Heartbeat EP )

Hey pal, take this piece of my, my
(Take this piece of my, my back string)
Leaving, sailing, flying
(Hating, Hey pal, fateful, good sad)

You got the capacity and you’re so fucking lucky
Living up above the street; you’re so fucking lucky
All your hair and bones and teeth, and you’re so fucking lucky
Jesus Christ I wanna meet; you’re so fuckin lucky

Smoke, coughing, smoking, poking
(Smoke, coughing, smoke, poking)
Hey pal, good sad, for reach out
(Make it last, it won’t set sailing)

You got the capacity, and you’re so fucking lucky
Living high above the street; you’re so fucking lucky

Cut your chances nearly in half
I’m shut out of many good things

You take a little when you can; you’re so fucking lucky
Jesus Christ, a perfect plan (man); you’re so fucking lucky

You don't own me

( Madara-White / Live )

You don't own me
I'm not just one of your many toys
You don't own me
Don't say I can't go with other boys

Don't tell me what to do
Don't tell me what to say
And please, when I go out with you
Don't put me on display

You don't own me
Don't try to change me in anyway
You don't own me
Don't tie me down 'cause I'll never stay

I don't tell you what to say
I don't tell you what to do
So just let me be myself
That's all I ask of you

I'm young and I love to be young
I'm free and I love to be free
To live my life the way I want
To say and do whatever I please

Don't tell me what to do
Don't tell me what to say
And please, when I go out with you
Don't put me on display

I don't tell you what to say
I don't tell you what to do
So just let me be myself
That's all I ask of you

I'm young and I love to be young
And I'm free, I love to, I love to, I love to, I love to, I love to, I love to,
Be free, free, free, free, free, free, free.
I will always love you.

Your Eyes

I was drinking alone again
You came over, my secret friend
Then we talked until morning knocked on the door
Then we rwalked out into the light

Your eyes made it seem like everything would be okay,
Your eyes
Your eyes made it seem like everything would be okay,
Like your eyes would never close.

Like an angel you save someone
By accepting her as she was
There were so many things that I wanted to say
The last time I looked into them

You know what I feel
You know what I need

Your eyes made it seem like everything would be okay,
Your eyes
Your eyes made it seem like everything would be okay,
Like your eyes would never close.

Can I follow you down, I wanna follow you down
To the ocean floor

Your eyes made it seem like everything would be okay,
Your eyes
Your eyes made it seem like everything would be okay,
Like your eyes would never close.
