Identity Crisis ----------------------------One night she came from who knows where black leather boots platinum spiked hair Her intentions were clear from the ultimate start to make the fear disappear by acting this part But the men and but you to those of concern signals were on cue with money to burn nothing else to do she had class, yeah know she couldn't fake it

Bought her own act and swallowed it whole Trashed and compact A brand new armoured soul she'd sit around and wonder why she'd waited so long to be free she looked into her mirror thinking "Is that she or her or me?" But the men and but you to those of concern signals were on cue with money to burn nothing else to do she had class, yeah know she couldn't fake it

Keep going even further even harder, never let up on your cover, never confide i n your lover Keep going even faster, even louder, just a ticking like a timebomb waiting to e xplode waiting to explode, waiting to explode She was so protected with this new soul made of armor that she failed to notice that all her support beams had done rot through And as her rock and roll haven came crashing, crashing down quick as a wink she had come she was gone and never found and it was ME that was left bleeding there But the men and but you to those of concern signals were on cue with money to burn nothing else to do she had class, yeah know she couldn't fake it

But the men and but

to those of concern signals were on cue with money to burn nothing else to do she had class, yeah, you know she couldn’t fake it

Burning Witches ----------------------------Everything change just when I felt the bridges burning behind me not knowing how I should feel not knowing what is and isn't real just a kid in woman's body watching people be unkind wish I had it all to do again maybe then I could make it right maybe then I could sleep at night This fruitless guilt abandon me allow my gifts to flow as free as the turmoil ahead of me that goes on for eternity So many so many leaving so much blessings greener pastures reached for in vain life along the way hurt left for all to pay

just a girl in a mother s body watching life just pass me by wish I had it all to do again maybe then I could make it right maybe then we'd be together tonight This fruitless guilt abandon me when you go take my insecurity Take my heart and set it free Take me home and help me find me. Burning witches on burning bridges killing liars in the vagrant fires piece by piece the good girl's gone nothing but ash to carry on Ley some light into this room help put end to impending doom mistakes are fatal but look in my eyes and you might see what you don't recognize Everything change just when I felt those bitches burning behind me not knowing what I should do not knowing what is and isn't true

just a girl in a woman's body watching life just pass me by wish I had it all to again yeah, I wish I had it all to do again I'd do it differently if I had it all to do again. Faux Pas ----------------------------Sweating without comfort Moving in weird circles Without clarity of function Feeling needy Needing feelings Hand-feeding conclusions like pigeons, or worse Looking for strength In that which is light Grabbing smiles at the gate with the rest of the girls Inopportune moments Mixed with casual shyness Sends odds signals without complete truths Freakish coincidence A nagging obligation That won’t be ignored, the fears are all stored And locked into position Labels discarded Yet feeling retarded Secondary puberty, condensing maturity Diving head-first ‘neath the blankets of obscurity Ooooh A Has-Been before a Once-Was A rare grin (You know what I mean) A Faux Pas Cutting Loose ----------------------------I wanna fly up to the sun I wanna burst forth in spite of everyone So many possibilities What lies ahead What Golden Opportunities A welcome end To all my insecurities Can’t wait for today Can’t wait for tomorrow Exhilaration is welling up inside me I’m exposing myself today Watch closely as I shine so bright I’m cutting loose So many possibilities What lies ahead What Golden Opportunities

A welcome end To all my insecurities, well Can’t wait for today Can’t wait for tomorrow Exhilaration is welling up inside me I’m exposing myself today Watch closely as I shine so bright I’m cutting loose I I I I wanna wanna wanna wanna fly up to the sun burst forth in spite of everyone fly up to the sun burst forth in spite of everyone

Hidden Agenda ----------------------------There's There's There's There's There's oh well There's There's There's There's There's There's at all. nothing nothing nothing nothing nothing there's nothing nothing nothing nothing nothing nothing better than some private time - mm hmm better than a curious mind - mm hmm better than a wandering eye better than a game of spy better than an inquiring mind - mm hmm nothing better than a glorious find better than a sweet behind -mm hmm better better better better better than than than than than a clever peek - mm hmm a silent sneak - mm hmm a one man show when he don't know that

Pay no heed to little ol’ me I'll do no harm just forget about me close your eyes, let yourself be caught up in some fantasy you'd think I'd have something to do, instead of spying in on you but I've got a hidden agenda! Blindsided ----------------------------Far past three I lay in wait a million thoughts running round in my head so often I'd been there, the one to be late with him at home thinking I'm in some other bed perhaps its his ideas that instigate mine but whatever it is that’s taking his time its a madness that burns into rage, blown out of proportion like improv on stage not an ounce of control as the minutes tick on a time bomb, suspecting a con Now I know, just what it feels like

he turned the tables on me I was left blindsided too close to see now he's pulled my poison on me what can I ever say? It serves me right he should treat me this way Silent keys in the door don't know whether to shout or to snore, trust is a hard place to find give anything for that one piece of mind "hey Babe, are you still wish I could JUST SCREAM Now I know, just what it Now I know, just what it awake?" so my heart wouldn't break feels like feels like

he turned the tables on me I was left blindsided, too close to see, now he's pulled my poison on me, what c an I ever say? It serves me right he should treat me this way Blindsided, ooh blindsided Tall Water ----------------------------It’s not what it seems Everybody tries to get in the scene, They all have their own act The fortune purely stays one of attack To place the highest blame Fortunes are made by the one who’s most lame The pretty lies they shine Like white diamonds in a dusty mine The tall water that we tread The tall water that we tread The tall water that we tread No one seems to care which one gets hurt, Too busy covering up their own dirt Brick after brick the lies are laid Deck after deck the lies are played The pretty lies, they gleam Like three inch bitches in a magazine So now it’s coming back around Fate has a funny way of bringing people down The pretty lies stream from their lips… And I am angry to the core It’s not what it seems Everybody’s trying to ruin my dreams

They all mess inside my head The tall water that we tread ooh Brick after brick the lies are laid Deck after deck the lies like cards are played The pretty lies, they gleam Like three inch bitches in a magazine The tall water that we tread (x8) The tall water that we tread We go in circles it’s a lost cause The tall water that we tread The competition is to win at any cost And I am angry to the core Just wait your actions will come back to haunt you The tall water that we tread ooh Too Good To Be Real ----------------------------There's a gleam in your eye when we tit for tat on the on again off again rare situation when you're here or I'm there and it's way past the hour for anyone to care locked in pupil to pupil shouldn't seem too unusual no, for the language is apparent yes its strong but its so silent this incredible addiction feels less and less and less and less like fiction yet a closer look might start to reveal, its just too good to be real ooh such a cool dream, a lucid wave, oh baby In the vaults of my mind there's a secret place where lives one of a kind overt imagination that brings you to me… across the bridges and waters and valleys, you fly up to me though that should not be a curiosity to act on impulses, be drawn to that feel to make the shiver last this incredible addiction feels less and less and less like fiction this is only a dream this is only a dream you told me and you hypnotized me what a fantasy surreal but too good to be real ooh such a cool dream a lucid, lucid wave so cool can't seem to find my way back from you, can't seem to recover recover… a closer look might indeed reveal too good to be real, ooh such a cool dream, a lucid wave

there's a gleam in your eye when we tit for tat on the on again off again rare situation when you're here or I'm there and it's way past the hour for anyone to care So cool I’m Here ----------------------------The past is heavy and my patience is thin Can’t help thinking ‘bout the places I’ve been To see the sacrifices I’ve made To know I’m better off that he never stayed, oh yeah I grow weary of relationships Mention commitment and I gotta get a grip Just when I thought I’d be glad to be alone You came in and brought a feeling unknown Not a moment passes by me That I’m not afraid Of the weight of indecision Multiplied by pain But I’m caught up in the vision Of this extra-sensual reign Of you I’m here for you I’m here And who knows when tomorrow comes But I’m here for you I’m here for you I’m here And we know when tomorrow comes that I’ll be here for good Like a stray cat on a dead end street Find it hard to groove with people I meet Oh but you’ve got nothing to prove There’s not much left of this mountain to move Not a moment passes by me That I’m not afraid Of the weight of indecision Multiplied by pain But I’m caught up in the vision Of this extra-sensual reign Of you I’m here for you

I’m here And who knows when tomorrow comes But I’m here for you I’m here for you I’m here And we know then tomorrow comes and I’ll be here for good Want It All ----------------------------A touch of your hand Still causes unease Commitment to vows Yet spilling with tease To look upon the past There were but two shared kisses Blindly diving into the center of our untapped cores I regret that I held back My tenderness is gone now My mind is ten years hipper And I dream of a night once more Once more But I will want it all Want it all (x3) Not just the motion But the true emotion A real connection Your real attention An act of closure lest I pass without personal resolve Want it all (x3) Big, big plans I had for you I boil inside when I reflect I miss you I miss the escapism you helped me create The hot air balloon will fly real soon One last trip But I will want it all, want it all (x8) Self ----------------------------Forever running from the labels that they gave me A form of coping not a fear of confrontation When people know me it’s a sign to pack the house up Barely fulfilling my own social obligations

Self The situation's of exposure as expected A sense of humor very rarely ever feels good My self esteem is contradiction to my true self No one could ever really know me Inside of me there burns a deeper flame I don't know how it came to me The woman within is one that I cannot name Sit in the circle Bathe in gold light Alone I am a goddess Alone I am alright Self Once in my solace I can shed my outer layers Extra terrestrial with multi defense shields Exposing translucent bare naked pearl Return to my circle of gold wheat fields Self Longing ----------------------------(I Thought I Knew You) I thought I knew you You were my favorite song Mm hmm I thought I knew you But I was so wrong Boo hoo… It burns inside for days at a time Been so long since I felt content Blood will simmer through years of storm Past reform Now I know that it was wrong And I gave up my song Now I know that it was wrong And I gave up my song I never dreamed it would be gone so long To gaze into your soul Would take voodoo and hat tricks Candles with black wax Vile attacks Now I feel my heart hover

And I am still your lover, yet Sacrifice must fall like that of a guru Just when I thought I’d mastered the grace of loving you You locked up your heart in a steel drum Now all I rely on Is my sea of fearful visions And transcendental prophecies And blurry coffee ministries I thought I knew you I thought I knew you Gotta Be ----------------------------I was traveling the world one day and I found you floating out in Cyberspace and you said "Its time to get off your duff and don't give me no guff 'cuz it's time you had this world on a string 'cuz Girl you know you could have most anything" So I gave it some thought then I shivered at the freedom in front of me cuz there's one thing I can't figure out I mean I get it I get it, what you're talking about all these things I should be shooting for but what I don't understand is how you can open the door, then let go of my hand 'Cuz there's just one thing I can't figure out tell me tell me tell me what this is all about because there's gotta be a reason why we made love beyond the aching need you became a part of me there's gotta be a reason why we made love were we not meant to be? I was traveling the world one day and I found you out in Cyberspace and you said to me "get off your duff and don't you give me no guff 'cuz it's time you had this world on a string 'cuz you know you could have most anything... But don't count on me to be part of that destiny" The Night Never Lies ----------------------------The crispness of night Breeds a sense of longing Longing for nocturnal needs of youth

Longing for eternal truth Let me sleep, let me sleep all day Don’t let that fire touch my skin Not one drop of sweat, not one bead of sin Praise the lunar ascent Reach out to the stars I feel free The chill is singing out to me Hold the cloaked one close Embrace its honesty Let me sleep, let me sleep all day Don’t let that fire touch my skin Not one drop of sweat, not one bead of sin Praise the lunar ascent The night never lies You could tell me anything But the moonlit breeze will know It whispers LIAR of your daytime fire Knows my every heart Let me sleep, let me sleep all day Don’t let that fire touch my skin Not one drop of sweat, not one bead of sin Praise, Praise, Praise Most Of The Time ----------------------------Most of the time it's undefining it leaves without the empty space but when it starts to creep upon me I start to think I've lost the race You allow me to live in your make believe world and we pretend we're really not alone in a way I'm driven to you you make me feel so much at home But every time we just say goodbye and we just turn and walk away Most of the time I don't build my world around you

most of the time I think that I do fine without you, yes I do but then there's times when I can't help but doubt who ever dreamed that we'd be two lonely people you and me alone together but most of the time I said most of my time I just keep it to myself You are my closest friend in you I see a greatness that I wish I had and you're good to let me think I'm not so bad You've got a strength you don't even know you have and in this world there must be a better place for you to shine Most of the time I don't build my world around you most of the time I think that I do fine without you, yes I do but then there's times when I can't help but doubt who ever dreamed that we'd be two lonely people you and me alone together, to say "forever" (to brave bad weather) but most of the time I said most of my time .............I just keep it to myself All lyrics written by Carol Batchelor Copyright ©1992 Looking For Urs Productions All Rights Reserved
