1842

It’s been such a long time since
Claire has gone
you should have moved on
now that justice is done

but it wasn’t enough for you
and you just can’t forgive
So you lurk in the shadows alone
with nothing more to give

you’ve been waiting since 1842
but no one’s looking for you

So much violence, nasty surprise
To be caught in all that hate
But you’re a coward, you know it’s time
and still refuse to embrace your fate

you keep circling the lake
waiting for Claire to come home
but everyone you’ve ever known
Gave up a long time ago

so you’ve been waiting since 1842
no one’s waiting for you

Drama queen

What can I say that I haven’t said before?
My feelings for you have never been buried treasure
But what you can see is just
The tip of the iceberg that goes
All the way down to the core of the earth

But I’ve never aspired to poetry
I just always say what I mean
But how can I say what I feel

With a kitten in my hair, 28 and still
wrapped in dogs and teddy bears
and this is how you see me still

you never saw the good in the fight
but sometimes it’s the only way out
I’m a drama queen, that’s what you think of me
But you’ve always been my censorship
Always there to keep me in check

I’ve never aspired to poetry
I just always say what I think
But I feel so alone in this

With a kitten in my hair, 28 and still
wrapped in dogs and teddy bears
and this is how you see me still

Dreams

I had this dream last night
it stayed with me all night
I got up and turned on the light
I won’t sleep again for days

There’s nothing good on TV
and when I close my eyes I see
your gaze burning a hole in me
I wish your memory would fade

I don’t want to I don’t need to
But I still dream of you
And I hate myself for not letting go
But I still dream of you

I guess I’ve always been
a bit of a masochist
I do it all the hard way
I’ll pick a fight just to feel the pain

I used to cry myself to sleep
And now I cry myself awake
I just want the dreams
To go away

I don’t want to I don’t need to
But I still dream of you
And I hate myself for not letting go
But I still dream of you

Have a nice day

my dog ran off this morning
the toilet was overflowing
I couldn’t find my tie
it’s a great life never lose your smile

the barber shop was closed
mom called dinner froze
car broke down had to walk a mile
it’s a great life never lose your smile

landlady shouting from across the hall
some kids broke a window with a tennis ball
I slipped on the glass, had quite a fall
With such a wonderful life how can you lose your smile

read a magazine got a paper cut
sitting next to me is a total nut
the bus had a flat tire
it’s a great life never lose your smile

Lullaby

Sleep now my darling
Sleep now, go to sleep
Sleep now my darling
Sleep now, go to sleep
A beautiful world awaits in your dreams
So sleep now my darling
Sleep now, go to sleep

Lust

Your naked skin
Your breath so sweet
Lying down beside you
So hard to resist

I am under your spell
You are the air I breathe
You turn and tell me
‘you say the strangest things’

I never thought you’d stay
Never knew I could feel this way

I feel so weak
Can barely stand on my feet
I don’t recognize myself
What have you done to me?

Now I have to crawl
Drag myself across the floor
But it felt so sweet
You’ve stripped me to the core

Written by Dee, 2001

None of these things

You want someone sweet and kind
Someone who’ll tell you lies
Someone there just to say
Everything will be alright

Someone who’s not afraid
Someone you can always blame
And someone who’ll always make
Everything OK

So what are you looking at me for
I am none of these things

I am a little sad and cruel
Egocentric too
Selfish, in a bad mood
And refuse to play the fool

And if sometimes I concede
Then I will turn on you
And though I am to blame
I will drag you down too

What are you looking at me for
I’ll always be the same

But I’m someone who’ll love you right
Someone who’ll hold you tight
I can’t make up my own mind
But I’ll stay by your side

I’ll always be there for you
Even if you don’t want me to
But I can’t tell you what to do
Wishes don’t always come true

PAPER BAG

She’s got a paper bag over her head
And I want to help but I can’t
People always do what they want
Nothing more nothing less
No matter what you say

The worst is gone so you go on but
the bad times will come round again
you just do what you do
Nothing more nothing less
No matter what you know

he may come through and surprise you
when you all hope seems lost
But he’ll just be what he is
Nothing more nothing less
No matter what you do

Playground Rules

Sitting around quietly
Talking to a friend
Solar eclipse it’s that
Long haired bitch again

You can push me away
You can beat me down
Justice will prevail – yeah right
Only fools believe

You learn playground rules as you dream
of passing on your pain
You learn playground rules as you dream
Of leaving them in shame
You learn playground rules as you bleed
From your broken lip
You learn playground rules as you dream
Of dancing on her grave

I stand up for my rights
But only the strong survive
Justice will prevail – yeah right
Only fools believe

You learn playground rules as you dream
of passing on your pain
You learn playground rules as you dream
Of leaving them in shame
You learn playground rules as you bleed
And anger builds again
You learn playground rules as you dream
Of dancing on her grave

Rainy days

it just started to rain
people walk faster
as they go on their way

it just started to rain
the sky’s a mirror
reflecting all your pain

And I don’t know what to say to you anymore
No I don’t know what to say to you anymore
but it just started to rain
is that a sign

it just started to rain
tears are falling
as you go on your way

it just started to rain
the city skies
are crying for your pain

Singing

Winter’s come early this year
The trees try so hard to hold on
to their frozen leaves (x2)

I wish that I could feel some warmth from you
But I’m holding on to
A place that’s gone (x2)

For years you’ve said I do nothing but take
Yes I’ve taken the silence and harsh words
There was nothing more to take

maybe the snow will fall slowly enough
to soften the path I must take
I can bear the cold
And to keep warm on the way
I’ll be singing

I can no longer pretend this story will have
A happy end
But I still play the part (x2)

For years you’ve said I do nothing but take
Now I must take my leave of you
there’s really nothing more to say

Too late

No time at all
No time at all
And she feels the years slipping away
She feels the years peeling away

All her dreams in the gutter
Her future down the drain
She’s wasting away
No ambition remains

She never expected
To feel this much pain
So empty inside
And no one to blame

And she asks
Is there time?
Is there time left in me?
Is there time?
Is there time to break free?
Is there time?
Is there time to start again?
This bitter sweet dream remains

All the plans that she made
Have been washed away
She just cries in the dark
Slowly going insane

She’s feeling so old now
Life’s carved on her face
And all that she hoped for
Never took place

And she asks
Is there time?
Is there time left in me?
Is there time?
Is there time to break free?
Is there time?
Is there time to start again?
Or is it too late?

Walking forever

all the waves got tired
so they moved to Hawaii
they took off on an arrow plane
They will be back
so the dolphins say

I saw her in my hands
she was walking forever
the jungle is her home now
she spoke an ancient tongue
fire was in her message

if you want a dream
just step into the mirror
you’ll see her there
walking forever

Your face

every time I look up I see your face
I keep having this vision I can’t erase
this is an obsession that I can’t trace
is this a curse or a state of grace

every time I look up I see your face
hoping you’ll show up one of these days
slowly stepping out of the haze
isn’t this a concept hard to embrace

are you really real
are you even there
do you feel anything at all
do you even care

every time I look up I see your face
I don’t know if I can keep up this pace
things are getting way out of hand
it’s hard to believe that it’s just for pretend

every time I look up I see your face
I keep having this vision I can’t erase
this is an obsession that I can’t trace
is this a curse or a state of grace

are you really real
are you even there
do you feel anything at all
do you even care

Song for a friend

I hate the way you walk
The way you talk, the way you eat
the way you sleep, the way you are
always awake, the the way you want
more than you take

I hate the colour of your eyes
the way you comb your hair
the way you look surprised
the way you always stare

I mean everything that I just said
I hate your guts and I don’t care
I cross my heart and hope you’ll die
and find no heaven – only sky

I hate the way you think you know it all
I hate to know you’ll never fall
I hate to see you drive a car
I’d hate to find you in a bar

I hate to see your face
I hate your place in society
the way you always bother me
I hate you like you were a flea

I mean everything that I just said
I hope you know at least one prayer
‘cause when I get my hands on you
you’re gonna wish I still liked you

I plan my life what can I say
I’m always waiting for that day
I’ll grab your face and make you pay
or maybe hate feels best this way
