Whoa. Nelly!

Hey, Man!

Hey, man, don't look so scared
You know I'm only testing you out
Hey man, don't look so angry
You're real close to figuring me out

We are a part of a circle
It's like a mobius strip
And it goes round and round until it loses a link

And there's a shadow in the sky
And it looks like rain,
And shit is gonna fly once again

Hey, man, we look at each other
With ample eyes and
Why not some time to discover
What's behind your eyes, and
I've got so many questions
That I want to ask you
I am so tired of mirrors
Pour me a glass of your wine

And there's a shadow in the sky
And it looks like rain,
And shit is gonna fly once again

I've got a bunch of government cheques at my door
Each morning I send them back
But they only send me more
I look at myself in the mirror am I vital today?
Hey, man, I let my conscience get in the way
Oh no

And there's a shadow in the sky
But it looks like rain,
And shit is gonna fly once again,

And I don't mean to rain on your parade
But pathos got me once again
And I don't want ambivalence
No I don't want ambivalence no more,

No I don't want ambivalence
No I don't want ambivalence no more,

I said I don't want ambivalence
No I don't want ambivalence no more
No more

I said I don't want ambivalence
No I don't want ambivalence no more
No more

Trynna Finda Way

I left my heart in San Francisco
with some club kids on a crowded street
somewhere
The sky was red and he said,
"would you like to come be a part of my North American Dream?"
I could try to chase life down,
down the street and I'd find the separation
of fact and fiction

I'm tryin' a find a way
I'm tryin' a find a right
And if I budge I just might
I'm tryin' a find a way
I'm tryin' a find a right
And if I budge I just might

I left my conscience somewhere with my rythym
I heard about it from the mouth of a man
He was hopping some trains and combing the land
Looking for a lover (kiss) planted in the east
Trying to run from the dreaded fist beast
And it lies, it lies in the picket fence call
It was my own paradise with my own private corridor

I'm tryin' a find a way
I'm tryin' a find a right
And if I budge I just might
I'm tryin' a find a way
I'm tryin' a find a right
And if I budge I just might

So I'm dancing to a new beat and it came to me in bed
My veins became a strain of light that I let to flow instead
And a wish came to me like Peter Pan at my window and said
Evolve your destiny child and you'll never walk alone-no
You'll never walk alone, but
Travel to the land of surrender till' you can't cry no more
Till you can't, till you can't
And you'll never walk alone

You'll nev, you'll nev, you'll never walk alone, you'll nev,
you'll nev, you'll never walk alone..
... never walk, never walk alone alone alone-yeah/
all this inspiration is
passing me by
all I can do is chill when I really wanna fly
and this pollution do nothing but dirty up my mind
faster than forever in the blink of an eye
to see past my lethargy is hard I feign
the beauty of my youth is gone but the chemicals remain

I'm tryin' a find a way
I'm tryin' a find a right
And if I budge I just might
I'm tryin' a find a way
I'm tryin' a find a right
And if I budge I just might

I travel to this land of surrender but I see it's all over me,
over and over again...and I try and I try and I try...
an angel on my left side and a devil on my right..
and they fight and they fight and they fight..
they're fighting, they're fighting, they're fighting for my attention...
hello? You have my attention...
Do I have your attention...
Can I have your attention
please?...please, you've made such such an impression on me

....On the Radio (Remember the Days)

You liked me 'til you heard my shit on the radio
Well I hate to say but pop ain't going solo
You liked me 'til you heard my shit on the radio
But now I'm just too mainstream for you, oh no

You liked me 'til you seen me on your TV
Well if you're so low below then why you watching
You say good things come to those who wait
Well I've been waiting a long time for it

I remember the days
When I was so eager to satisfy you
And be less then I was
Just to prove I could walk beside you

Now that I've flown away
I see you've chosen to stay behind me
And still you curse the day
I decided to stay true to myself

You say your quest is to bring it higher
Well I never seen change without a fire
But from your mouth, I have seen a lot of burning
But underneath I think it's a lot of yearning
Your face, the colors change from green to yellow
To the point where you can't even say hello
You tell me youd kill me if I ever snob you out
Like that's what you'd expect from me, like thats what I'm about

I remember the days
When I was so eager to satisfy you
And be less then I was
Just to prove I could walk beside you

Now that I've flown away
I see you've chosen to stay behind me
And still you curse the day
I decided to stay true to myself

It's so much easier to stay down there
Guaranteeing you're cool
Than to sit up here exposing myself
Trying to break through

Than to burn in the spotlight
Turn in the spitfire
Scream without making a sound
Be up here and not looking down
Because we're all afraid of heights

I remember the days
When I was so eager to satisfy you
And be less then I was
Just to prove I could walk beside you

Now that I've flown away
I see you've chosen to stay behind me
And still you curse the day
I decided to stay true to myself

Myself, myself, myself
Why ya hurt me hurt me hurt me hurt me hurt me so
Leave me down down down down down down down down down
shit on the radio shit on the radio
shit on the radio shit on the radio

Party

I'm talking to the mirror again but it's not listening
I'm cleaning my dirty mind like a toilet but it won't give in
I'm drinking spirits in the hopes that I will find myself one
All I can rectify is that the party's just begun

Party's just begun
Party's just begun
Party's just begun
Party's just begun

I feel like falling asleep and never waking up
It's not that my glass is empty but I need another cup
When all of the doors around me just shut one by one
I feel like falling asleep but the party's just begun

Party's just begun
Party's just begun
Party's just begun
Party's just begun

Shaky, shaky steps in the middle of the day
A fire in my path and a cool decay
Of limbs and tooth under my skin
Oh, freedom, where do I begin

I'm changing my inflection and how I say the words
Maybe it will sound like something they've never heard
Oh, death of the party
I picked up the chalice of malice

And drank till I was full
I drank till I was full
I was thirsty but I drank till I was full
I drank till I, till I,till I was full
I drank till I, till I,till I was full
I drank till I, till I,till I was full

There's a fever in my bones that I know so well
I keep my head low low low to avoid the swell
But it'll be cold in hell, it'll be cold in hell
Before they put me in that chamber
So I'm cleaning up as fast as I can
I'm cleaning up as fast as I can

Cuz you can't unbreak what you break
You can't unfake the very fake
You cannot fuel without a tank,
No you can't unbreak what you break, what you break

Party's just begun
Party's just begun
Party's just begun
Party's just begun
Party's just begun
Party's just begun
Party's just begun
Party's just begun

Baby Girl

I've seen a man cry
I've seen a man die inside
I've seen him say to me that he is only mine
That he gotta do what is best for him
Never let me in, not even begin

To tell me I'm the one under his moon and sun
That I am the thing that revolves around him
But while on top of him
I know what's best for him
I'll show him how to win
And let me in cuz

I don't wanna be your baby girl
I don't wanna be your little pearl
I just wanna be what's best for me
To be one-da-dum with my own star under my own sun

We're all sorry now, I didn't mean to wow
Make you cry like that, it's just a little spat
Still I want you to know, though I love you so
It's mostly me dreaming, forcing, believing

That you're an ideal, hell I never steal
But I stole you from, from another one
So take yourself and wrap around my little finger
Cuz that's how I think it should swing

I don't wanna be your baby girl
I don't wanna be your little pearl
I just wanna be what's best for me
To be one-da-dum with my own star under my own sun

Why can't he see
Why can't he see
What's inside of me, yeah

Don't you, don't you call me coochie-coo, a little girl now
Don't you gaga goo no coochie-coo girl now
I'm so much more, can't you see?
Can't you see?

Look who's writing now a token of their love
Can't you see love that it's just because
I wanted a cheap way to get inside your head
And not a cheap way to get inside your bed

Oh you're running now, with that silly one
It's all over now, this woman's just begun
Maybe we'll see about the will and the way
Butterflies return some day

I don't wanna be your baby girl
I don't wanna be your little pearl
I just wanna be what's best for me
To be one-da-dum with my own star under my own sun
To be one-da-dum with my own star under my own sun

Well, Well

Well, well, what do I say
Looks like what goes around comes around
And everyone will have their final say
Sometime someday
Looks like I only love God when the sun shines my way
Looks like I'm into divinity when I can see its sweet sweet rays

I say what I mean but I don't mean what I say
Well, well its fine out today
I say what I mean but I don't mean what I say
Well, well its fine out

Well, well what do I say
I've never seen a bad day look quite this way
And well, well what do I do
When all of my thoughts run right back to you

Looks like I meant to speak with logic
but hon' the carnal always gets in the way
Well, well this fire was more funner than proper grammar anyway

I say what I mean but I don't mean what I say
Well, well its fine out today
I say what I mean but I don't mean what I say
Well, well its fine out today
I say what I mean but I don't mean what I say
Well, well its fine out today

Then you get to the part where your heart just wants to die
Then you get to the part where your heart screams it just sighs
Then you get to the part where your heart knows it's a crime
So it flies like a bird, it's heard, it's heard, it's heard the word

I say what I mean but I don't mean what I say
Well, well its fine out today
I say what I mean but I don't mean what I say
Well, well its fine out today
I say what I mean but I don't mean what I say
Well, well its fine out today

Today,
I say what I mean but I don't mean what I say
Well, well its fine out today
today,
I say what I mean but I don't mean what I say
Well, well its fine out today
today,
I say what I mean but I don't mean what I say
Well, well its fine out today
today
Well, well, it's fine out

Legend

He wants to be, he wants to be
With everything under the sun
He wants to be, he wants to be
With everything under the sun

And like a legend who rises and then falls
I cannot be his only one

He makes me feel, he makes me feel
Like you used to, whoa
Like you used to
He makes me feel, he makes me feel
Like you used to, whoa
Like you used to

And like a fickle flower when it first sees the light
I cannot show just how I fight
And like a fickle flower when it first sees the light
I cannot show just how I fight

Babe I saw you walking, it was after midnight
Carrying nothing except for a flashlight
You wanted to be Romeo so low at my window
You wanted to be Romeo so low at my window
Will you open the door for me if you believe in chivalry
Will you open the door for me if you believe in chivalry
For I do not think you low though you bow to me so-so
I do not think you low though you bow to me so-so

I know you want to drink from the purest wine, from the purest wine
But the drink is far more sour than you would ever think,
think, think, think, think, no

He wants to be, he wants to be
With everything under the sun
And she wants to burn, she wants to burn
Hot like that sun, whoa
Hot like that sun

Just like a legend who rises and then falls
I cannot be his only one
And like a callous, cold, callous woman
She'll never see what she did done

So like this legend that rises and then falls
I'll never be his only one

My Love Grows Deeper Part 1

My love grows deeper every day and takes a little piece of me
My love grows deeper every day and takes a little piece of me
My love grows deeper every day, deep into the sea
But takes a little piece of me, a little piece of me

Oh it's so beautiful out and I can't see why we're not allowed to be
Up in the sky with the birds counting the flowers
Oh my powers have failed me again when I can't see beginning to end
Though I try to test it again through the hours
Wandering stars in the blue could not be born because of you
Wandering stars in the blue could not be born because of you
because of you

My love grows deeper every day and takes a little piece of me
My love grows deeper every day and takes a little piece of me
deeper every day, deep into the sea
a little piece of me, a little piece of me

Oh why can't I be green as the grass beneath my feet
As fresh as the dew hits the ground in the morning
And not yellow like bumble bees, please take me off my knees, my knees
I don't wanna be red forever
Wandering stars in the blue could not be born because of you
Wandering stars in the blue could not be born because of you

I'll be, I'll be looking
I'm looking at the moon but I'm thinking to myself
I've got me under my own skin, I don't need nobody else
I'm looking at the moon but I'll be thinking of myself
I've got me under my own skin, I don't need nobody else

Wandering stars in the blue could not be born because of you
Wandering stars in the blue could not be born because of you

If I could have sunlight in the palm of your hand
I'd take the moonlight instead
If I could have sunlight in the palm of your hand
I'd take the moonlight instead

I'm Like a Bird

You're beautiful, that's for sure
You'll never ever fade
You're lovely, but it's not for sure
That I won't ever change

And though my love is rare
Though my love is true

I'm like a bird, I'll only fly away
I don't know where my soul is
I don't know where my home is
And baby all I need for you to know is

I'm like a bird, I'll only fly away
I don't know where my soul is
I don't know where my home is
All I need for you to know is

Your faith in me brings me to tears
Even after all these years
And it pains me so much to tell
That you don't know me that well

And though my love is rare
Though my love is true

I'm like a bird, I'll only fly away
I don't know where my soul is
I don't know where my home is
All I need for you to know is
I'm like a bird, I'll only fly away
I don't know where my soul is
I don't know where my home is
All I need for you to know is

It's not that I wanna say goodbye
It's just that every time you try
To tell me, me that you love me
Each and every single day I know
I'm going to have to eventually give you away

And though my love is rare
And though my love is true, yeah
I'm just scared
That we may fall through

I'm like a bird,
I don't know where my soul is
I don't know where my home is and baby
All I need for you to know is
I'm like a bird, I'll only fly away
I don't know where my soul is
I don't know where my home is and baby
All I need for you to know is
I'm like a bird, I'll only fly away
I don't know where my soul is
I don't know where my home is and baby
All I need for you to know is

I Will Make U Cry

Chuva! Chuvinhao! Venho, venho ca, rapaz!

This is not political it's just that I demand attention
when I walk into a room Hey!
And it's not that I can't play ball hard it's just that I don't want to
And the more I think about this pressure love I don't want you
And I can't have you and that's what hurts the most
I cannot show you these things I boast
I'll throw my heart out, keep my head up, I cannot fuck up cuz

I got what you need boy (baby I do)
but I will only cause you pain, yeah (I promise that)
I got what you need boy (baby I do)
but I will only bring on the rain

So I'll prefer to run this road rough around the edges
Good for something but too good to give it to you
You run your own course at your own pace
but I just got impatient
See, I wanted to explore Forsake you,
forsook you, abate you, dissipate you
So turn fate around, I believed that I was free of you (not)
I still believe in those days on benches at sunset
or the waves in July-or
was it March
We weathered weathers and storms real and imagined, such fragile tenderness
You are truly blessed
I stress this as I blow you this kiss as I blow it in the wind, mmwa

I got what you need boy (baby I do)
but I will only cause you pain, yeah (I promise that)
I got what you need boy (baby I do)
but I will only bring on the rain

Gonna make u cry so damn hard

(Boohoo)

They say time is made of memories
Well I remembered and I'm tired
This is not political
It's just that I remember the fire
Babe you left me with my head held high
and I feigned to be more than I was, didn't I
I thought I could do without sugar love
but this chocolate has turned into sweet bubble gum
Candy is sweet but honey is sweeter
It tastes like the real thing
but candy is much much cheaper (Cheaper)

I got what you need boy (baby I do)
but I will only cause you pain, yeah (I promise that)
I got what you need boy (baby I do)
but I will only bring on the rain

I didn't mean to, let me wipe those tears away

Turn Off the Light

It's getting so lonely inside this bed
Don't know if I should lick my wounds or say 'woe is me' instead
And there's an aching inside my head
It's telling me you're better off alone

After midnight
Morning will come
And the day will see
If you will get some

They say that girl ya know she act too tough tough tough
Well it's 'til I turn off the light, turn off the light
They say that girl you know she act so rough rough rough
Well it's 'til I turn off the light, turn off the light
And I say follow me follow me follow me down down down down
'Til you see all my dreams
Not everything in this magical world is quite what it seems

I looked above the other day
Cuz I think I'm good and ready for a change
I live my life by the moon (by the moon)
If it's high play it low, if it's harvest go slow and if it's full, then go

But after midnight
Morning will come
And the day will see, yeah
If you're gonna get some

They say that girl ya know she act too tough tough tough
Well it's 'til I turn off the light, turn off the light
They say that girl you know she act so rough rough rough
Well it's 'til I turn off the light, turn off the light
And I say follow me follow me follow me down down down down
'Til you see all my dreams
Not everything in this magical world is quite what it seems

I'm searching for things that I just cannot see
Why don't you don't you don't you come and be with me
I pretend to be cool with me, want to believe
That I can do it on my own without my heart on my sleeve

I'm running, I'm running, catch up with me life
Where is the love that I'm looking to find
Its all in me, can't you see
Why can't you, why can't you see it's all in me
All in me yeah

Where is your logic (turn off the light, turn off the light)
Who do you need (turn off the light, turn off the light)

And I say follow me follow me follow me down down down
'Til you see all my dreams
Not everything in this magical world is quite what it seems

Follow me follow me down down down down
I do not need I do not need nobody (turn off the light, turn off the light)

Follow me follow me follow me down down down
'Til you see all my dreams
Follow me follow me follow me down down down
'Til you see all my dreams

Where is your logic
Who do you need
Where can you turn
And where is your logic

Scared of You

I'm sorry
I forsake you
I'm sorry
That I left you
I'm sorry
I did forget you

And I'm sorry
That I made myself feel better
By making you feel never good enough

I know you'll shine much brighter
Than I ever could
Maybe that is why I was

Scared of you
(And in everything I do I'm still thinking of you)
Oh you, you
I know you were scared of me
(But everytime I tried to love you I just fell through)
Too, ooh ooh, ooh ooh

Desculpa me
Se te ofendi
Desculpa me
Se te esqueci
Desculpa me
Se eu te deixei
Eu te deixei

E desculpa me
Por mi sintir bem com tu ador
Sabes que te adore
Mais sei que tu estrela a maior
Do que minha, do que minha
E por isso

Eu tenho medo deste amor
(Os dias passo pensando en ti)
Amor
Medo deste amor
(Salve me porque agora estou caindo)
Amor

Scared of you
I was

Scared of you

Scared of you, you, you, you, you, you, ooh

Scared of you
