Stand

Walk in a corner shop
See a shoplifting cop
See the old lady with a gun
See the hero try to run
Nothing's what it seems, I mean
It's not all dirty, but it's not all clean
There's children paying bills
There's monks buying thrills
There's pride for sale in magazines
There's pills for rent to make you clean
Marvin Gaye, there's no brother, brother
Woody Guthrie's land can't feed Mother

Mothers weep, children sleep
So much violence ends in silence
It's a shame there's no one to blame
For all the pain that life brings
If you will just take me It might just complete me
And together we can make a stand

A waitress brings me lunch
We meet but do not touch
On TV, D.C. is selling lies
While in the corner, King's dream dies
Go to the counter, pay for me and my friend
A homeless man pulls out a roll, says it's on him
The mayor has no cash
He said he spent it on hookers and hash

Mothers weep, children sleep
So much violence ends in silence
It's a shame there's no one to blame
For all the pain that life brings
If you will just take me It might just complete me
And together we can make a stand

You will love me, I will love you
You will love me, I will love you

Mothers weep, children sleep
So much violence ends in silence
It's a shame there's no one to blame
For all the pain that life brings
If you will just take me It might just complete me
And together we can make a stand

Mothers weep, children sleep
So much violence ends in silence
It's a shame there's no one to blame
For all the pain that life brings
If you will just take me It might just complete me
And together we can make a stand

Mothers weep, children sleep
So much violence ends in silence
It's a shame there's no one to blame
For all the pain that life brings
If you will just take me It might just complete me
And together we can make a stand

2 Become 1

I watch you while you're sleeping
Messy hair, chest bare, moonlight on your skin
I wanna breathe you in
In the silence, words come easy
I can tell you now just how simple it's been to let you in
Don't move, this mood is a painting
We'll never find the same thing

Love, do not make a sound
Melt into me now
Two become one

Love is so close to hurting
With a shake we could wake from our own dreaming
But we must make a vow
Cause I have waited a lifetime
Now is the right time

Love, do not make a sound
Melt into me now
Two become one

Love, let's make time stand still
Let this moment last until
Two become one

Like a bird owns its wings
Like a song belongs to melody
You belong to me
I fold your arms around me
Let your flesh, your breath, your love, surround me
Oh, you feel like home

Love, do not make a sound
Melt into me now
Two become one
Love, let's make time stand still
Let this moment last until
Two become one
Become one
Become one

Run 2 U

Hey little baby, little lover boy
Get in my arms, give me some joy
I wanna hold you tonight
It'll be alright
'Cause the night is long and I hunt for you
In this darkest hour, where have you gone to?
Won't you come to my side
I need you tonight

Run to me, I'll run to you
Let me crash into you
Run to you, you'll run to me
I alone can love you
You belong to me

I need you for dark reasons, dear
For greed and lust and seed and fear
For all the songs that I can hear when you are near
Cause the places I've been, well I'm trying to forget
But the further I run, well, the further I get
But with just one kiss, you know that it do not exist
So won't you dance for me beneath the street lamp's light
With your arms stretched out, baby, drunk on wine
You know it feels so good, like it should, just to laugh
I knew that it would

Run to me, I'll run to you
Let me crash into you
Run to you, you'll run to me
I alone can love you
You belong to me

La, la, la, close your eyes, close your eyes
La, la, la, it's a lullaby

Run to me, I'll run to you
Let me crash into you
Run to you, you'll run to me
I alone can love you

Run to me, I'll run to you
Let me crash into you
Run to you, you'll run to me
I alone can love you
You belong to me

Run to me, I'll run to you
Let me crash into you
Run to you, you'll run to me
I alone can love you
You belong to me

Run to me, I'll run to you
Let me crash into you
Run to you, you'll run to me
I alone can love you
You belong to me

Haunted

I will come to you
In the still of the night
And I will crush you
With the burden of sight
And you will understand
The shadows in my heart
The fury of my conviction
Will cause your heart to quicken
Then, my dear
You will see you want me here

And when you wake up
You'll see yourself through my eyes
And when you break up
You'll understand
Why it is I cry

Let me speak quietly
So your heart can hear
I will hypnotize and mesmerize you
With the sound of your own fear

When you wake up
You'll see yourself through my eyes
And when you break up
You'll understand
Why it is I cry

I just wanna get along
This is your song
I wrote it in my head
But the melody's all wrong
And it's driving me crazy
Not having you, baby
To keep me company
In my own private world
You're my one true girl
And I won't be stoppin'
Just 'cause your knees are knockin'
When I decide to drop in
So don't make a sound
Cause there's no one around
To come between us now
I'm gonna haunt you, girl
And when you wake up
You will finally see yourself
Oh, you'll see yourself through my eyes
Oh when you break up you will realize why it is I cry

I will come to you in the still of the night

Intuition

I'm just a simple girl
In a high tech digital world
Really trying to understand

Kate Moss can't find a job

Let go of your mind

It will lead you in the right direction
Let go of your mind
Your intuition

Sell your sin. Just cash in.

You'll love me. Wait and see.

It won't be in vain
Uh-uh-uh

Sweet Temptation

Running fast through a fairy tale
Dark woods; starless night
Feel cold air in my lungs
Full moon, you follow me you say
"Why do hearts so often stray?"
You pierce me like an arrow
'Neath the blanket of night
Longing for flight

When you fall into me
It feels so sweet, like dreaming
Press yourself into me
Let me feel your breathing
There's a voice in your heart
Softly calling
Come to me you will see, just give in
To this sweet temptation

I awake, do a double take to see
Where it is that I lay it could be
Day or night, I'm not quite sure
Your absence is a thorn
Your flesh, your skin
Is the only flag there is to believe in

When you fall into me
It feels so sweet, like dreaming
Press yourself into me
Let me feel your breathing
There's a voice in your heart
Softly calling
Come to me you will see, just give in
To this sweet temptation

I can love you like nobody else
Cause I can love you like nobody else

When you fall into me
It feels so sweet, like dreaming
Press yourself into me
Let me feel your breathing
There's a voice in your heart
Softly calling

When you fall into me
It feels so sweet, like dreaming
Press yourself into me
Let me feel your breathing
There's a voice in your heart
You can hear
Softly calling
Come to me you will see, just give in
To this sweet temptation

When you fall into me
It feels so sweet, like dreaming
Press yourself into me
Let me feel your breathing
There's a voice in your heart
You can hear
Softly calling
Come to me you will see, just give in
To this sweet temptation

Leave the Lights On

I like your smile
Don't like complication
I like your style
Don't like calculation
Come towards me, dear
There's something you need to hear

I said If you want my love
You can try my love
You can't buy my love
Just take my hand
If you want me, dear
Then just beckon, dear
And I will appear
I said you can leave the lights on
You can leave the lights on

I believe in love, dear
Without limitation
Believe in being clear
To avoid aggravation
If you want me to
I will exist just for you

If you want my love
You can try my love
You can't buy my love
Just take my hand
If you want me, dear
Then just beckon, dear
And I will appear
I said you can leave the lights on
You can leave the lights on

I will mesmerize with milky thighs and languid eyes,
I'll prophesize your moans and sighs

Just look at me sacredly, religiously, hungrily,
Let your eyes say, "Please," I will not leave

If you want my love
You can try my love
You can't buy my love
Just take my hand
If you want me, dear
Then just beckon, dear
And I will appear

And I will appear
I said you can leave the lights on
You can leave the lights on

Yes U Can

Make your way through mirrored halls
You see the boys with all their dolls
A pretty maze, like candied streets
You feel a thrill when your eyes meet
You pick the one with the feathered hair
But I'm the one that makes the boys stare
And there's a room, or so I'm told
Where the DJ rocks and we don't grow old
Would you like to take a ride?
All you have to do is come inside

Say hello to the room where the party's jumpin'
Where the boys all freak 'cause the boots are bumpin'
Where the girls are naughty and always saying
"Yes you can, yes you can, yes you can"
"Yes you can, yes you can, yes you can"

You got on your money rags
And Papa's got a brand new bag
And Mama's got her hot pants on
While in the back, the beat goes on
Would you like to come along?
Then shut up and sing this song

Say hello to the room where the party's jumpin'
Where the boys all freak 'cause the boots are bumpin'
Where the girls are naughty and always saying
"Yes you can, yes you can, yes you can"
"Yes you can, yes you can, yes you can"

The boys are pale
The girls are soft as nails
The band strikes up and it starts to wail
There's a price on everything
It's not cheap to buy your dreams

Would you like to come along?
Then shut up and sing this song

Say hello to the room where the party's jumpin'
Where the boys all freak 'cause the boots are bumpin'
Where the girls are naughty and always saying
"Yes you can, yes you can, yes you can"
"Yes you can, yes you can, yes you can"

Say hello to the room where the party's jumpin'
Where the boys all freak 'cause the boots are bumpin'
Where the girls are naughty and always saying
"Yes you can, yes you can, yes you can"
"Yes you can, yes you can, yes you can"

Say hello to the room where the party's jumpin'
Where the boys all freak 'cause the boots are bumpin'
Where the girls are naughty and always saying
"Yes you can, yes you can, yes you can"
Oh yes you can oh yes you can

Say hello to the room where the party's jumpin'
Where the boys all freak 'cause the boots are bumpin'
Where the girls are naughty and always saying
Oh yes you can, yes you can
Oh yes you can, yes you can
Oh yes you can, yes you can
Ooh, you know I'm gonna get you, ooh

2 Find U

If I asked you a question
Would you look me in the eyes?
Has our love been built on lies?
Well, why I'm asking
You see, the time is now
To turn our backs forever
Or work this through somehow
And I want to see you
I want to feel new again

Hey, you
Do not walk away
Let's choose love, come on
What do you say?
Hey, you
Know that I would spend
My whole life all over again
To find you

We've layered hurt on hurt
I've seen pain cloud your eyes
But we are bruised, not broken
Like a phoenix, love will rise
And do you see me?
Do you feel new again?

Hey, you
Do not walk away
Let's choose love, come on
What do you say?
Hey, you
Know that I would spend
My whole life all over again
To find you

Look in my eyes
Kiss my mouth hard
Let your conviction
Reassure my heart
Promise me now
I'll promise you, too
I love you

Hey, you
Do not walk away
Let's choose love, come on
What do you say?
Hey, you
Know that I would spend
My whole life all over again

Hey, you
Do not walk away
Let's choose love, come on
What do you say?
Hey, you
Know that I would spend
My whole life all over again

Hey, you
Do not walk away
Let's choose love, come on
What do you say?
Hey, you
Know that I would spend
My whole life all over again
Hey you

U & Me = Love

Walk down the street
To a psychedelic beat
I'm a real girl
In an unreal world
Disco lights and buff bodies are nice
I'm like any girl; I enjoy the sights
But I'm no Cinderella to your storybook fella
I'm no Barbie doll for your fantasies and all
If you let me be me, I'll be better than your best dream
You and m-e spells l-o-v-e to me

Come on, baby, won't you crash into me?
I'm like nothing that you've ever seen
Dynamite,
I'll blow your mind
Guaranteed to mesmerize
You'll say, "Ooh la, la, la"
Ooh la la la
Ooh la la la la
Ooh la la la la

Old Spice is nice
But sweat is better
E-mail is cool
But romance lives in a letter
Batteries are fine, but I'm
Energized all the time
You and m-e spells l-o-v-e to me

Come on, baby, won't you crash into me?
I'm like nothing that you've ever seen
Dynamite,
I'll blow your mind
Guaranteed to mesmerize
You'll say, "Ooh la, la, la"
Ooh la la la
Ooh la la la la
Ooh la la la

Come on, baby, won't you crash into me?
I'm like nothing that you've ever seen

Come on, baby, won't you crash into me?
I'm like nothing that you've ever seen
Dynamite,
I'll blow your mind
Guaranteed to mesmerize
You'll say, "Ooh la, la, la"
Ooh la la la
Ooh la la la la
Ooh la la la

Come on, baby, won't you crash into me?
I'm like nothing that you've ever seen
Dynamite,
I'll blow your mind
Guaranteed to mesmerize
You'll say, "Ooh la, la, la"
Ooh la la la
Ooh la la la la
Ooh la la la

Come on, baby, won't you crash into me?
I'm like nothing that you've ever seen
Dynamite,
I'll blow your mind
Guaranteed to mesmerize
You'll say, "Ooh la, la, la"
Ooh la la la
Ooh la la la la
Ooh la la la

Fragile Heart

If you want my heart
You have to promise not to tear it apart
Cause my heart
Has been hurt a lot
And it always seems
Love is not sweet, like in dreams
Something falls through
But I don't want that to happen to me and you

So be
Careful, warning
Fragile heart
So be
Careful, warning
Fragile heart

Last Saturday
We ate dinner at your parents' place
Last Saturday, you said
How you feel will not go away
Well, all the fishes in the sea
They could not be happier than me

So be
Careful, warning
Fragile heart
So be
Careful, warning
Fragile heart

Only fools believe that
Nothing changes, nothing leaves
But I need to believe that we at least
Will have some dignity
Cause everything changes
Nothing stays the same
But that's no excuse to be casual
Or to place the blame
You have to be careful with me

(whisteling chorus)

So be (So be)
Careful, warning
Fragile heart
So be (so be careful)
Careful, warning
Fragile heart

So be (won't you be)
Careful, warning (careful, warning, fragile, fragile heart)
Fragile heart
So be (won't you be)
Careful, warning
Fragile heart

America

Walkin' to the corner of Main Street, USA
Look at the good people, hear what they gotta say-uh-huh
All right
See a sexy girl with her long black hair
See a preacher man sporting Abercrombie wear-uh-huh
All right
Walk into a corner store
A man says, "This is what I'm fighting for"

We are living in America
We're giving in America
We're tripping in America

Everywhere I go, seems like Bush is on TV
We shed blood in the name of liberty-uh-huh
All right
The circus tents are dead, but the sideshow is doing well
The Osbournes and Anna Nicole are too freaky to tell-uh-huh
All right

Take the bad with the good
I wanna change it, but I wouldn't leave it if I could

We are trying in America
We're spying in America
Getting high in America
We are laughing in America
We're crying in America
We're dying in America

We are trucking in America
We are f**king in America
We are lucky in America
We are breaking ground in America
Just another town in America
We are breaking down in America

Take the bad with the good
I wanna change it, but I wouldn't leave it if I could

We are living in America
We're giving in America
We're tripping in America

We are trying in America
We're spying in America
We're getting high in America

We are getting tan in America
We love Spam in America
Polanski's banned from America

Ten million served in America
Have you heard in America?
We're crying in America
We're laughing in America
We're living in America

Doin' Fine

We are what everyone wants to be
We are young
And carefree
Life's a breeze for people like you and me

If you look
Life lays out just like a road
It's for us to grab ahold
There's no one that can tell us no

Come on, baby
Let's just have fun
Let's breathe stardust into our lungs
Let's drive too fast
Let's go too far
When our hearts bleed it lets us know we are alive
And that we are doin' fine

We lay down
Look at the sky
From upside down
There's nobody we have to be
Let's live fast and see where it leads

Come on, baby
Let's just have fun
Let's breathe stardust into our lungs
Let's drive too fast
Let's go too far
When our hearts bleed it lets us know we are alive
And that we are doin' fine

Let's get lost
In love like wine
Let kisses quench
This thirst of mine
Let me feel the weight of your skin
Pressing in

So come on, baby
Let's just have fun
Let's breathe stardust into our lungs
Let's drive too fast
Let's go too far
When our hearts bleed it lets us know we are

So come on, baby
Let's just have fun
Let's breathe stardust into our lungs
Let's drive too fast
Let's go too far
When our hearts bleed it lets us know we are
Let's us know that we're alive
And that we are doin' just fine

We are what everyone wants to be

Becoming

Listen, heart
Listen close listen
To the melancholy
Melody of your own voice
I am weary of my own leaving
I am tired of waiting
So this time, I'm leaping

I reach beyond myself to see
What I find, beyond my mind, there is no time
In this place beyond my sight
My heart knows what is not yet seen
I'm witnessing my own becoming

Lash myself to the
Mantle of my desire I will
Turn from its temptations
But the wanting takes me higher

I am hurting (I am hurting)
Oh, I am not yet born
I am the mother and the father
Of what is not yet known

I reach beyond myself to see
What I find, beyond my mind, there is no time
In this place beyond my sight
My heart knows what is not yet seen
I'm witnessing my own becoming

Darkness surrounds me
I scratch, I struggle, I breathe

I am reaching beyond myself to see
What I find, beyond my mind, there is no time
In this place beyond my sight
My heart knows what is not yet seen
I'm witnessing

I reach beyond myself to see
What I find, beyond my mind, there is no time
In this place beyond my sight
My heart knows what is not yet seen
I'm witnessing my own becoming
La la la
La la la
La la la
La la la
La la la
La la la
