eX-GIRLFRIEND

i kinda always knew i'd end up your ex-girlfriend whoa

 i kinda always knew i'd end up your ex-girlfriend

 i kinda always knew i'd end up your ex-girlfriend 

i hope i hold a special place with the rest of them a

nd you know it makes me sick to be on that list

but I should've thought of that before we kissed

you say you're gonna burn before you mellow 

i will be the one to burn you

why'd you have to go and pick me 

when you knew that we were different

 completely

i kinda always knew i'd end up your ex-girlfriend whoa 

i kinda always knew i'd end up your ex-girlfriend whoa  

i hope i hold a special place with the rest of them whoa 

i kinda always knew i'd end up your ex-girlfriendand

i'm another ex-girlfriend on your list 

but i should've thought of that before we kissed 

your wildness scares me so does your freedom

you say you can't stand the restrictions

i found myself trying to change you 

if you were meant to be my lover i wouldn't have to 

i feel so mean i feel in between 

'cause i'm about to give you away 

i kinda always knew i'd end up your ex-girlfriend (for someone else to take)

i kinda always knew i'd end up your ex-girlfriend (am i making a mistake)

i hope i hold a special place with the rest of them (all the time that we spent)

i kinda always knew i'd end up your ex-girlfriend

and i'm another ex-girlfriend on your list 

but i should've thought of that before we kissed 

i'm another ex-girlfriend on your list 

but i should've thought of that before we kissed 

am i a nice girl? 

i'm about to give you away for someone else to take 

i'm about to give you away for someone else to take 

we keep repeating mistakes for souvenirs 

and we've been in between the days for years 

and i know that when i see you i'm going to die 

i know i'm gonna want you and you know why 

it's gonna kill me to see you with the next girl 

'cause I'm the most gorgeously jealous kind of ex-girl 

but i should've thought of that before we kissed 

i kinda always knew i'd end up your ex-girlfriend whoa 

i kinda always knew i'd end up your ex-girlfriend whoa 

i hope i hold a special place with the rest of them 

(i hope i hold a special place, all the time that we spent) 

i kinda always knew i'd end up your ex-girlfriend a

nd i'm another ex-girlfriend on your list

but i should've thought of that before we kissed 

i'm another ex-girlfriend on your list 

i should've thought of that before we kissed

simple KIND OF LIFE

for a long time i was in love 

not only in love i was obsessed 

with a friendship that no one else could touch 

it didn't work out i'm covered in shells 

and all i wanted was the simple things 

a simple kind of life 

and all I needed was a simple man 

so I could be a wife 

i'm so ashamed i've been so mean 

i don't know how it got to this point 

ooh i always was the one with all the love 

you came along i'm hunting you down oh 

like a sick domestic abuser 

looking for a fight oh 

oh and all i wanted was the simple things

a simple kind of life 

oh if we met tomorrow for the very first time 

would it start all over again would i try to make you mine 

i always thought i'd be a mom 

sometimes I wish for a mistake 

the longer that i wait the more selfish that i get 

you seem like you'd be a good dad 

now all the simple things are 

simply too complicated for my life 

and how'd i get so faithful to my freedom 

a selfish kind of life 

well all i ever wanted was the simple things 

a simple kind of life 

a simple kind of life 

a simple kind of life...

 

bathwater  

 you and your museum of lovers 

the precious collection you've housed in your covers 

my simpleness threatened by my own admission 

and the bags are much too heavy 

in my insecure condition 

my pregnant mind is fat full with envy again 

but i still love to wash in your old bathwater 

love to think that you couldn't love another 

i can't help it you're my kind of man 

wanted and adored by attractive women 

bountiful selection at your discretion 

i know i'm diving into my own destruction 

so why do we choose the boys that are naughty 

i don't fit in so why do you want me 

i know i can't tame you but i just keep trying 

cause i still love to wash in your old bathwater 

love to think that you couldn't love another 

on your list with all your other women 

but I still love to wash in your old bathwater 

you make me feel like you couldn't love another 

i can't help it, you're my kind of man ooh 

why do the good girls always want the bad boys 

so I pacify problems with kisses and cuddles 

diligently doubtful through all kinds of trouble 

then I find myself choking on all my contradictions 

cause i still love to wash in your old bathwater 

love to think that you couldn't love another 

share a toothbrush you're my kind of man 

i still love to wash in your old bathwater 

make me feel like you couldn't love another 

i can't help it you're my kind of man ooh 

do do do... 

no i can't help myself i can't help myself 

i still love to wash in your old bathwater 

ooh

six FEET UNDER  

in the morning i wake up and in the night i sleep 

and since the day i was born repeat repeat repeat 

brought to this life born to this life where was i before 

nonexistent not at all will i ever know 

today's my birthday and i get one every year 

and someday hard to believe but i'll be buried six feet underground 

subconsciously motivated natural instinct 

alter nature for the pleasure orthocycline 

flirt with conception slow the cycle will the baby grow 

social tradition interference control control control 

today's my birthday and i get one every year 

and someday hard to believe but i'll be buried six feet underground 

i'll be dead and gone no longer around 

spinning spinning before i can recall 

all the unknown chemicals control the cycle 

the successive generations from dust to dust 

burying my grandma then give birth to my own daughter 

today's my birthday and i get one every year 

and someday hard to believe but i'll be buried six feet underground 

today's my birthday and i get one every year 

and someday hard to believe but i'll be buried six feet underground 

i'll be dead and gone no longer around 

i'll be buried six feet underground 

MAGIC'S IN THE MAKEUP  

can you tell i'm faking it 

but i want to be myself 

a counterfeit disposition 

can't be good for my health 

so many different faces 

depending on the different phases 

my personality changes 

i'm a chameleon 

there's more than one dimension 

i can fool you and attract attention 

camouflage my nature 

let me demonstrate 

makeup's all off 

who am i 

the magic's in the makeup 

who am i 

if you bore me then i'm comfortable 

if you interest me i'm scared 

my attraction paralyzes me 

no courage to show my true colors that exist 

but i want to be the real thing 

but if you catch my eye can't be authentic 

the ones i loath are the ones who know me the best 

my makeup's all off 

who am i 

the magic's in the makeup 

who am i 

the makeup's all off 

who am i 

if the magic's in the makeup 

then who am i 

magic's in the makeup 

but i wanna be the real thing 

but the magic's in the makeup 

and i want to be the real thing 

ooh my makeup's all off 

who am i 

ARTIFICIAL SWEETENER  

oh yes i'm guilty 

for leasing myself out 

not ready to go up for sale 

can't seem to give it up 

stubborn so selfish 

i'm showing off the worst in me 

the return of saturn 

assessing my life 

second guessing 

i'm full of artificial sweetener 

my heart's been deceitful 

it's all artificial sweetener 

i'm faking "i love you"s 

you're forcing me to 

oh you really deserve love 

 i want to love you 

but i can't seem to find myself 

my wilting effort 

our progress report 

i'm only sure that i'm not sure 

and i shudder 

to be honest 

who's behind it all now 

who's the author 

i'm full of artificial sweetener 

my heart's been deceitful 

it's all artificial sweetener 

i'm faking "i love you"s 

you're forcing me to 

re-read re-write redo undo 

i'm stuck on this page 

i was born two weeks late 

is that why i hesitate 

i'm on the fence 

push me off it 

i want to be on your side now 

and keep a promise 

i'm full of artificial sweetener 

my heart's been deceitful 

it's all artificial sweetener 

my heart's been deceitful 

i'm faking "i love you"s 

you're forcing me to 

i'm faking "i love you"s 

you're forcing me to 

i'm faking "i love you"s 

you're forcing me to 

i'm faking "i love you"s 

you're forcing me to 

MARRY ME

i can't help that i like to be kissed 

and i wouldn't mind if my name changed to mrs. 

this is one side my conventional side 

an attraction to tradition my vintage disposition 

my sincere architecture and i want to cook him dinner 

but i'm more indecisive than ever and who believes in forever 

who will be the one to marry me 

a girl in the world barking up the wrong tree 

a creature conditioned to employ matrimony 

crumbling continuity i pick up the pieces 

the ceremony makes me zealous as the past quickly ceases 

fear from being neutered i'm now prude now defensive 

quickly i'm altered and tempted by new love only rented 

do you believe you'll marry me 

you might be the one to marry me 

ooh 

back lookin' back lookin' back at me 

i'm not how i used to be 

take me back take me back into history 

diamond ring tie me down just like it used to be 

tie me down how it used to be 

who will be the one to marry me 

who will be the one to marry me 

how i used to be 

not how i used to be 

lookin' back lookin' back at me 

i'm not how i used to be 

take me back back into history 

diamond ring tie me down just like it used to be 

marry me

marry me 

forever and ever and ever and ever 

happily ever after 

happily ever after 

happily ever after 

happily ever after  resented 

something old, something new, something borrowed something blue 

rented 

apprehensive 

here comes the bride all dressed in white 

here comes the bride all dressed in white 

something old something blue something borrowed something new 

it's pretty when i'm faithful 

ooh and ever ever ever 

for ever and ever... 

happily ever after 

you and me, you and me... 

NEW

don't let it go away 

this feeling has got to stay 

don't let it go away 

this feeling has got to stay 

and i can't believe i've had this chance now 

don't let it go away 

yeah 

new... you're so new 

you... you're new 

and i never had this taste in the past 

new... you're so new 

my normal hesitation is gone 

and i really gravitate to your will 

are you here to fetch me out? 

'cause i never had this taste in my mouth 

oh you're not old 

and you're not familiar 

recently discovered 

and i'm learning about you 

new... you're so new 

you... you're new 

and you're consuming me violently 

and you're reverence shamelessly tempting me 

who sent this maniac 

'cause i never had this taste in my past 

oh you're different 

you're different from the former 

like a fresh battery 

i'm energized by you 

don't let it go away 

this feeling has got to stay 

don't let it go away 

this feeling has got to stay 

and i can't believe i've had this chance now 

don't let it go away 

why am i so curious 

this territory's dangerous 

i'll probably end up at the start 

i'll be back in line with my broken heart 

new... you're so new 

you... you're new 

and i never had this taste in the past 

don't let it go away 

this feeling has got to stay 

don't let it go away 

this feeling has got to stay 

and i can't believe i've had this chance now 

don't let it go away 

and i can't believe it 

can't believe it 

can't believe it 

can't believe it 

don't let it go away 

this feeling has got to stay 

don't let it go away 

new... you're so new 

new... you're so new

TOO LATE

i just want to take you away from everyone 

and keep you stashed under my pillow 

and then i'd take you out simply for my own pleasure 

and wear you when the occasion's special 

then i'd put you on like a diamond 

so i can sparkle and be the envy of my friends 

i'd probably hold the leash that i'd have you on 

so you can't stray and follow me around all day 

it's too late now 

i don't think it can fade 

it's too real now 

fulfillment just adds fuel to the blaze 

compulsion has stained me i'm nervously cradling 

my young love without known limits love 

like a butterfly cupped in my hands i peek in 

to see beauty trapped confined it flutters 

then it leaves behind colorful dust 

to remind me of the special times we spent 

but of course it has to leave my clutch 

but enough's never enough to make a dent 

it's too late now 

i don't think it can fade 

it's too real now 

fulfillment just adds fuel to the blaze 

and in time it will end 

and there really isn't hope for the two of us 

but right now i give in 

it's too late now 

i don't think it can fade 

it's too real now 

fulfillment just adds fuel to the blaze 

fulfillment just adds fuel to the 

fulfillment just adds fuel to the blaze 

(it's too late, it's too late...)

COMFORTING LIE

i started out on the wrong foot now i'm not myself 

i am jekyll i am hyde found this place to hide come seek me 

oh so up and down so back and forth so insecure 

can't get this taste out of my mouth swallow it down pretend 

and hold it hold it all in 

let it build up oh build a bomb 

and blow it blow it away 

and clear it all out just end it 

i'm just a normal person without those problems when did it change 

admissions so embarrassing i'm on the verge of tears again 

i'll hold it i'll hold it all in 

i'll let it build up oh build a bomb 

and blow it blow it away 

and clear it all out just end it 

oh look i took the band aid off did i take it off too soon 

hysterical confession my big courageous move 

don't gasp at the predictable a comforting lie can't last 

preordained checklist of this awkward love it's so sad 

and hold it hold it all in 

let it build up oh build a bomb 

and blow it blow it away 

and clear it all out just end it 

and sort it sort it out 

oh just give it back no thank you 

and toss it toss it away 

eliminate just give up 

i can't decide this tug of war 

i'm feeling weak yeah

STARING PROBLEM

my eyes are so rootless 

they wander and i follow 

i keep starin' i can't stop it 

i know i shouldn't but i can't stop it 

oh such a cute girl 

i'm so jealous 

i wish i looked exactly like her 

oh what's it like to have that body 

i'm gawking while i wonder 

s t a r i n g 

i can't stop staring 

s t a r i n g 

i can't stop staring 

with my envy i steal glances 

resentful fault finder 

this peek-a-boo's become a problem 

predisposed cat fighter 

s t a r i n g 

i can't stop staring 

s t a r i n g 

i can't stop staring 

s t a r i n g 

i can't stop staring 

s t a r i n g 

i can't stop staring 

s t a r i n g p r o b l e m 

s t a r i n g 

i can't stop staring 

s t a r i n g 

i can't stop staring 

oh s t a r i n g 

i can't stop staring 

s t a r i n g 

i can't stop staring 

s t a r i n g 

i can't stop staring 

s t a r i n g 

i can't stop staring

 

SUSPENSION WITHOUT SUSPENCE

my divorce from dependence 

that's when you found me 

i was too soft 

and we always were in trouble 

odds stacked against us 

and trouble's what we are 

we get so far 

and then it just start rewinding 

and the same old song 

we're playing it again 

suspension without suspense 

suspense... 

now that i've murdered 

your inspiration 

and i forced you off 

do you hate me 

do you want revenge 

well i want to call you 

but i won't 

we get so far 

and then it just starts rewinding 

and the same old song 

we're playing it again 

suspension without suspense oh 

the pessimistic protection plan 

moderation loving 

i've been hardened by the circumstance 

we knew this was coming 

this was coming 

we get so far 

and then it just starts rewinding 

and the same old song 

we're playing it again 

suspension without suspense 

oh we get so far 

and then it just starts rewinding 

and the same old song 

we're playing it again 

and again 

suspension without suspense 

oh intentions without intent 

but i don't want the love we have to end

HOME NOW

i'm hanging out with me 

and you're a vacant chair 

a chosen compromise 

this space we rarely share 

and if you lived here you'd be home now 

so whatcha givin' up for me 

and what shall i give up for you 

aimless expectations passing by 

if you lived here you'd be home now 

if you lived here you'd be home now 

whoa 

and to make it real 

i need to have you here 

i need to have you 

i need to hold you 

barren wasted heart 

neglect of normalcy 

and if you lived here you'd be home now 

and to make it real 

i need to have you here 

i need to have you 

whoa whoa 

it can't be sincere 

unless you spend time here 

i need to see you 

supervision is what i need 

some consistence and tangibility 

some casual light days 

part of the furniture 

i want to take you for granted and see you regular 

so whatcha givin' up for me 

and what shall i give up for you 

the separations tired 

it's been too long 

 whoa 

and to make it real 

i need to have you here 

i need to have you 

whoa whoa 

it can't be sincere 

unless you spend time here 

i need to see you 

i need you 

i need you 

i need you 

i need you 

if you lived here 

if you lived here 

if you lived here 

come home now 

DARK BLUE

i'm tired from exploring you 

i'm sorry you've had some scary days 

i'm lucky they had me on a leash 

exposing sometimes you frighten me 

and it's too bad you're so sad 

i wish you could have had what i had 

i'm loathing most of your history 

hesitation but then you siphon me 

yeah your potential well i'll indulge in that 

violent timing explains the aftermath 

and it's too bad you're so sad 

i wish you could have had what i had 

and it's so sad it's too bad 

maybe i can make you feel better 

oh maybe i'm supposed to make you feel better 

i want to comfort you 

i want to comfort you 

i want to comfort you 

ooh unlike you i had it easy 

you're dark blue 

stained from previous days 

and you're so sad it's too bad 

i wish you could have had what i had 

and it's too bad you're so sad 

maybe i can make you feel better 

i'm sorry 

'm sorry 

i want to comfort you 

i want to comfort you 

you're dark blue
