I MUST HAVE YOU

Is this an instance of listenin’ to the wrong part of me Am I losin’ my cool in the quickest sand beneath It makes no sense to waste my breath On melodies that tell him this But I, I must have you The strong caffeine The long bad dreams Are not the reason I can’t sleep I stay awake  ‘Cause of the ache The lives 3000 miles away It makes no sense to waste my breath On melodies that tell him this But I,  I must have you Midnight for me his clock says five He’s fast asleep slow on my mind I cross the street it’s cold outside Relieved at least it’s wintertime Where he is too Oh, no coat will do For warmth, I must have you It’s foolish to do this a cruel trick To play on your own pride But there’s no stoppin’ till I’ve got him On my hands if just one night It makes no sense to waste my breath On melodies that tell him this But I, I must have you I had embarked a blues bound train But my one-track heart refused to break Monsieur conductor s’il vous plais Northeast go please full speed ahead To his sweet room Oh no bed but yours will do For lust, I must have you I know it don’t make any sense  To waste what little breath is left From what you took when you first left Come take the rest Ohh I forgot- for *Gra I must have you  

 

* Gra=love in Irish

 

OOH LA LA



I met you in London At the start of one long hot summer Had no hunch of what was comin’ When you sat down And as you start to talkin I’m sippin on my gin and tonic Tryin’ to listen But just thinkin’ Thinkin’ just one thought It was ooh la ooh la baby Ooh la ooh la baby Ooh ooh ooh ooh  Ooh La Ooh La La And then the night progressed Gettin’ close but oh still no kiss Though you made me laugh so it Kept me distracted But then I felt your hand Lightly brush up against my skin And darlin’ all of a sudden Just one thought in my head It was ooh la ooh la baby Ooh  la ooh la baby Ooh ooh ooh oooh Ooh la ooh la  London bridged that atlantic gap And then now look where we are at Big Ben he must be running fast He says a year has passed And im still singing ooh la ooh  ‘At  Last my love has come along’ Then we went our separate ways Knew right away on that runway wait This plane was not the only thing Takin off that day Cause then that night in bed Couldn’t seem to keep quiet and Knew it was not quite jetlag Keepin' me awake It was you la ooh la baby You la ooh la baby Ooh ooh ooh ooh Ooh la ooh la la


SOMETHING SWEET

 

I know I know I know I know we're far apart And so and so and so can't give you the love that you want So here is a song if you find yourself alone Wishing I was by your side  Here's something sweet to think of late tonight Remem, remember when Surrounded by strangers and friends And then and then and there we made our way up the stairs I called out your name told you not to stop just yet and you followed directions just right Here's something sweet to think of late tonight Or what about the time you got so sick and tired of me always gettin' my way gettin' my way gettin' my way put my palms up on the wall handin' you all the control and nothing could get in your way or how about that once hadn't seen you in a couple months silence came over us when you saw something was up looked you straight in the eye put my bubble gum aside and then I made up for lost time something sweet to think when you're in the mood for me something sweet to think of late tonight Just something sweet to think of late tonight.

 

 

DON’T GO

 

I’m your bird I’m your girl But I can’t fly across the world And when you stepped on the plane. Were you remembering What I had said Don’t Go Don’t go Don’t go Don’t go home No please Don’t Go But you Did Right now I lie in my in my bed The same one that you slept in yes In yesterday And listened to the plea I made Don’t go Don’t go Don’t go Don’t go home No please Don’t Go But you Did And now I just can’t fuckin’ sleep Cause I smell you in my sheets  And it’s more bitter than it’s sweet now Cause these goodbyes are all I have And I am running out of stamps I am running out of stamps now And this happens every time We pretend there’s no end No end in sight Until the night Until the night I beg and cry Don’t Go Don’t go Don’t go Don’t go home No no  Don’t Go But you you’re not mine No please don’t go But you will

 

 

 

FOUR LEAF LOVER BOY

 

Caught in the rain Flat tire again Cuff link fell in the sink cause your luck’s gone down the drain   You miss you flights You crash your bike house keys out of sight now you’re lucked out looking in The scoop on top of your ice cream cone just dropped you over fed now your friend’s goldfish is DEAD you drank too much took a nap in a strangers truck it was on the Bushwick block so i haven’t seen you since  but don’t let it get you down cause you’d make any girl the luckiest in town oh there ain’t no other you’re the love in clover though ya  don’t got the slightest  luck of the irish, you’re the charm I’m looking for You’re my four leaf lover boy

BETTER THAN BONNIE

 

 

your girlfriend's got the body of a model her blue eyes sparkle like the ones on you well traveled so you've  got a lot in common ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh  it's sure i've dirt beneath my finger nails and chipped red polish painted on there too and  i write stupid songs about your girlfriend ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh   but i don't  worry about it though she gives me every reason to cause one things i have that better than bonnie is that i'm better for you your girlfriends dressed in the hippest new fashions her lead role in the indie scene is proof not to mention the hottest music collection ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh  while i still cite lyrics of britney spears and just three peeps complete the scene i'm in and i write stupid songs about your girlfriend ooh  ooops i did  it again  but i  don't  worry about it though she gives me every reason to cause one thing i have better than bonny is that i'm better for  your girlfriends got blond hair so soft and I’m sure that she’s not bossy often unlike me who combs once  a month that's twice as much as i hold my tongue but maybe that it just how you'd like it a wild mouth  you'd know how to quiet by finding ways to occupy it ooh oohh ooh  your girlfriends probably a bit more subtle her censored centered dreams a steady speed while my minds races to the sky or gutter where  her boyfriend and i meet  but i don't worry about it though she gives me every reason to cause one thing i have better than bonnie the one thing that i'd never give bonnie is ooh ooh ooh ooh is that I’m better  for you

 

 

YOU’RE ALWAYS THERE

 

i slept in his bed last night he’s funny he’s sweet and treats me just right and as i lay awake in his care  tears hit the pillow cause you’re still there  Friday night with some friends Pouring red wine and having a laugh Until your name got tossed in the air And fell in my glass Cause you’re always there  I sing your songs now and then Playin’ along like they’re not relevant Oh though I try Just in the lie, alone Sends my blues running back home   on these hands and knees again lookin’ for keys  lost under the bed  and when instead found your letters there I left without locking Cause you’re everywhere Why bother looking  When you’re always there

 

 

 

 

DEAR FRIEND

 

dear friend have you read the thoughts I’ve sent airmail to your hands in ireland well  there’s been something  i could not write Between words  between the lines this city ain’t kind write back this time dear friend  ive never been so scared of winter but these winds are tides that pull where i cant swim cause I realize that I can’t quite recognize the sky tonight this city aint kind  write back this time  dear love id sing you a hundred songs but these months can barely pick up my guitar and all i can write  are letters to you and slips to the hungry say:  I O U this city aint kind write back this time here sidewalks are not meant for all  i see who’s pushed into the cars i could not want to write it though  what kind of love letters are those   dear friend just to survive, it drives you blind here my end  is the day  i see the dying so write me words  that mean its time meet me here  and ease my eyes oh sweet sight oh please just send me light  write back this time write back this time

 

 

GYPSY BOY

 

You were my gyspy boy a midnight owl a wondering soul my wild flower so i forgave you for everything you couldn’t say  but your silence broke the limb that i was on i hit the floor that’s when i saw you’re no gypsy boy you’re a runaway i took it as bravery but you just had no shame thought you were complicated you were just playin’ games but i believe in the team that we had made but then  you’d be gone when time was critical i called it rebellion but it was pure criminal cause you’re no gypsy boy you’re a runaway your cowboy routine don’t do nothing for me so take your fake horses and go cause I’m not the kind of girl that you thought i was not gonna stick around  tryin’ to fix you up i’ve had enough causes lost for today maybe i knew  but my mistake was thinkin’ you’d  be worth the chase  cause you’re no gypsy boy i’m sorry to say you’re no james dean boy you’re a run away run away

 

 

FULL OF SH*T

 

gonna pretend that you’re the easiest thing to give up for lent even more than wine or ice cream ill try to convince  that they're all sweeter on my lips    more than your  skin   so its truly unfortunate   that everyone knows I’m  full of shit   but what else am i supposed to do i gotta stop thinking of you gonna forget that you have that hot accent I’m not gonna let the way you say my name affect  the drum in my chest so when my beat start gettin fast  you've nothing to do  with it  but it's quite unfortunate that everyone knows  I’m full of shit what else am i supposed to do i gotta stop thinkin’ of you  no more love songs unless you count this as one no more sweet thoughts just after these ones they'll be done no more memories in my head repeating scenes of you  weak weakening me  at the knees (down on my knees)  not gonna spend another second thinkin' things that happened when we were hiding out in your bed i'm just gonna act like you did not really impress i've seen better anyway you really weren't that great  its such a shame  that I’m full of shit what what else am I supposed to do I gotta stop I gotta stop I gotta stop thinkin’ of you

 

 

TONIGHT I FOUND THE BLUES

 

I’d been looking Looking so long For something I couldn’t Put my finger on It’d been broken And locked behind bars So I felt the moment Breath swept Through my heart Finally sweet release That covers you like a summer moon and it feels so right tonight oh sweet night i found the blues  he wasn’t seein  how cruel it is to always be pleadin’ pleadin’ the fifth so i got no answers lord i got no rest and i got so tired of taken a guess  finally sweet release that covers  you like a summer moon and it feels so right tonight oh sweet night i found the blues  and i was working over time pretending everything was fine but weakness aint my stronger suit but august air it fills my lungs with warmth they need to breathe him out and that’s just what they’ll do   finally sweet release that covers  you like a summer moon now I realize that all his midnights will forever pass through 5 hours too soon so now it feels right tonight oh sweet night I found the blues.
