Track Name: Every Morning
I wake up to white lights flashing outside so bright,
Street cars crashing outside-I guess that means its time,
Just like the birds would sing, or my alarm would ring,
A little harsh at first-that makes my dream clouds burst

Every Morning comes without warning
Anticipating and commiserating
I'm stuck in midtown with this place on lock down and
I'd rather be there with something to share with you


And every day is the same thing that sounds from the attic, and the bangs from the track and the shots are sporadic. What's all the static, and Graham is automatic for most and Dub is the host at Magazine and Calliope


The Sun's been up too long, outside I hear a song
Of engines screams and shouts
Are what this place is about,
Smells in the air are thin, they seep into my skin,
And if the lights are kind, I'll get to work this time

Every Morning comes without warning
Anticipating and commiserating
I'm stuck in midtown with this place on lock down and
I'd rather be there with something to share with you.
Track Name: Somebody
Somebody out there's got to be the one
A driver or a pilot might be kinda fun
A banker or a lawyer would suffice
I hear this time of year that they can be quite nice

She doesn't want to be alone, by the time she's fully grown
She won't be left alone, better to let it go 'cause
She doesn't care who you are as long as you're
Somebody to Love
And if you've got a pretty ring and a flashy car then you could be
Somebody to Love

There's always guys who wear a uniform
I've never been much into officers of reform
A fireman or the delivery guy?
Would it be worth giving them a try?

She doesn't want to be alone, by the time she's fully grown
She won't be left alone, better to let it go cause
She doesn't care who you are as long as you're
Somebody to Love
And if you've got a pretty ring and a flashy car then you could be
Somebody to Love

Race and location is all relative
as long as you've got something you can give to me
20-55 would be ideal
And there's still days of time for us to kill

She doesn't want to be alone, by the time she's fully grown
She won't be left alone, better to let it go cause
She doesn't care who you are as long as you're
Somebody to Love
And if you've got a pretty ring and a flashy car then you could be
Somebody to Love
She doesn't care who you are as long as you're
Somebody to Love
And if you've got a pretty ring and a flashy car then you could be
Somebody to Love.
Track Name: Wake Up Alone
My baby love me and if we keep it up
There's a body lyin' next to me when I get up

I don't wanna wake up alone
I don't wanna wake up alone

When my baby leave me its only for a night
I don't need him but it just feels so nice

I don't wanna wake up alone
I don't wanna wake up alone

I gotta bed that's fit for a queen, like me
You can take it away any day, there's no way it was made for just me

I don't wanna wake up alone
I don't wanna wake up alone
I'm so, so tired of being alone
How could you leave me here all alone.
Track Name: Don't Look Now
"I thought that you were pretending,
when you said that it was ending
O they say "Oh no",
My girls give me consultation, when I let all my frustration show
They say "Oh no", but

Don't look now she's coming down the ally
with the guy that left you high and dry
Don't look now cause I can see it in your eyes
I think its time to get out now

I see that you're moving fast but it probably will not last I know,
'Cause I've seen that girl before and she's not what you're looking for I'm sure, but they tell me...

Don't look now she's coming down the ally
with the guy that left you high and dry
Don't look now cause I can see it in your eyes
I think its time to get out now

Plastic and a little thin, but too big for the clothes that she lives in, I can see
Even in a big white dress its up to you to make that mess not me

Don't look now she's coming down the ally
with the guy that left you high and dry
Don't look now cause I can see it in your eyes
I think its time to get out now
I think its time to get out
I know its time to get out now."
Track Name: Sink or Swim
"Do your talkin' and quit playin' games
You keep on walkin' 'cause its not the same anymore
And when you go out straight through the door
Don't turn around now, I don't wanna see you no more.

I thought I would not mind it, I was misguided
And so I tried it and I decided
That I don't want to be your baby (no)
I'm not that kinda lady (no)
The waters gettin' thin so its time to Sink or Swim

You ain't got no money and can't take me out
I'm no one's honey that can't get around and about
You're always out at that bar down the street
Makin' people think that you're the one that they oughta meet

I thought I would not mind it, I was misguided
And so I tried it, and I decided
That I don't want to be your baby (no)
I'm not that kinda lady (no)
The waters gettin' thin so its time to Sink or Swim

I'm not fakin' this, you're not breakin' this heart of mine,
And I know you're doin' it all of the time

I've got no transportation since you've got no ride
Instead of confrontation you'd rather run and go hide
I could get further walking around
Then hanging out with you lookin' just like a clown

I don't want to be your baby (no)
I'm not that kinda lady (no)
The waters gettin thin so its time to Sink or Swim.
You know what's kinda crazy?
You were always shady."
Track Name: Remind me much of you
I took back that watch you gave me
The diamond necklace had to move
I threw out that golden bracelet
Don't want nothing to remind me much of you

There were a few times when you left your shirt at my house
I never knew if you did it on purpose but with that scent
I would leave your things about
Since times are changed I guess things are different
Can't take your things hanging at my place
Every time I take an inhale it reminds me of you,
I see your face.

So I took back that watch you gave me
The diamond necklace had to move
I threw out that golden bracelet
Don't want nothing that reminds me much of you

I've always been bad at giving my things away
This move came a little too easy- I put your things
up on Ebay
At least I can get something out of the time we spent together
Its not much, but it keeps me from singing the blues of Stormy Weather

So I took back that watch you gave me
The diamond necklace had to move
I threw out that golden bracelet
Don't want nothing that reminds me much of you

I may eventually regret my decision
For doing away with the things I was given
But with or without someone else
I can always get things for myself

So I took back that watch you gave me
The diamond necklace had to move
I threw out that golden bracelet
Don't want nothing that reminds me much of you.
Track Name: Indispensable
Take it when you want to
And get it while you can
Im starting to catch on you need another plan
Im slowly picking up what you are putting down
I know when you will call without having to hear a sound

I'm indispensable to you
You don't know what you put me through
I'm indispensable to you until Im out of here

Living in the city
You see how long it lasts
Not much appreciation, moneys burning fast
We were gonna make it, I was coming here for you
You're mostly busy, we've got nothing left to do
Track Name: Slowly Sinking
Don't remember what was said last night
I thought we talked everything out right
Just in case we needed documentation
I opened Word and wrote the proclamations

And now your cartridge is slowly sinking
Can't recall what I was thinking
Did you ever think of leaving my mind

Ever notice how the back up fails?
Think we're making progress when we're moving like snails
But if you've got the money, Then I've got the time
To sit down and make words rhyme

And words keep falling through my head
They keep falling through my head
Don't stop falling through my head

Doesn't matter what was said last night
We got all the time to make things right
Even when we drift and start to malfunction
We eventually live in conjunction
Until

You're cartridge starts slowly sinking
Can't recall what I was thinking
Did you ever think of leaving my mind?
Track Name: Running in the Night
Days were spent in mellow since you came into my life
just because you play the loudest doesn't make you right
Walking in the rain Is pouring lucky dog cart out
Somehow all these faces keep on wandering about

Stuck in the same place again
Waiting on a friend
And we got to get out
Don't stop-Keep on running in the night

All night long you all stay sipping on your ticket home
Your daddy's ego tripping I need a band to call my own.
When we leave the stars are shining, where did my day go?
Wasted once again at another rock n roll show

Stuck in the same place again
Waiting on a friend
And we got to get out
Don't stop-Keep on running in the night

I know just what you're thinking, your grin doesn't sell me
The words you use got me thinking, you got whats coming to you
You don't know what I'm thinking, you're just like cellophane
There's no charm to be taken when you can't remember my name

Stuck in the same place again
Waiting on a friend
And we got to get out
Don't stop-Keep on running in the night
Track Name: I'm Going Home
"It's been a long night
Don't know how it got started
We took a trip and that's when my heart departed

I been moved around more that I can handle
I don't want to be misplaced and replaced
When there's one place I want to go

Where the sky is blue and it shines through my window
I can see what's coming, I thought you knew
I'm Going Home

Hands all around me
Pulling in different directions
But where they take me always fails to get mentioned

I used to like the feel
Of catching all the action
But when you look twice it's not quite as nice
When there's one place I want to go

Where the sky is blue and it shines through my window
I can see what's coming, I thought you knew
I'm Going Home
I'm Going Home."
