In Love With Love

 

Used to be in love with love
couldn't see anything but you
and I began to deify you
and I was drowning into you
and in my fantasy
I couldn't see the difference...

I used to be in love with love
spending time wondering
what you thought of me
instead of delving into me
I saw myself as you and me
and in my hungry world
I couldn't see the difference

between obsession with some fairy tale
and two whole beings being together
for worse or better...

Used to be in love with love
in love with being in love
more than being me
I needed time to just be me
so I could learn what now I see
and in my hungry world
and in my hungry world

I was in love with love
in love with love, like some movie
you couldn't do anything wrong
in love with love, in love with love...

Rolling Wave

 

The hungry moon pulled her out to sea
and as she drifted around fantastically
seven sharks began to circle
but something big pulled her up
and away she cried out

Chorus:

Life is a rolling wave
and I'm about to rise u
onto the rolling wave
but it could all come crashing
down, down, as fast as it rises

They formed a band
called "The Shellshocked Fighters"
rehearsed ten songs twice a week
and dreamed of stardom
got a gig in the great big city
paid some guy to watch their van
all their stuff got stolen

Chorus

And when it does, I'll try not to rise too fast
and when it falls, I'll try not to follow the crash
cause as low as it goes
it could turn on back again...life

He spent each day working on his project
telling a story through song and inspiration
but just before it was a smash on Broadway
he felt a little bit sick and died the next day

Red

Cut the fish
cut the lion
cut the monkey when he's dying
outside different shape and color
underneath one color

Chorus:

RED
emotional
underneath us all
inside of me I'm RED

Oval eyes
wider noses
softer hair
different poses
darker skin on the cover
underneath one color

Chorus

Binds us all together
crosses language barriers
inside of you
inside of me
inside, inside I'm red

Sign of love, sign of anger
sign of romance, sex, and danger
I'm a sister, you're my brother, underneath, one color!

Chorus

Crazy

Lock me in a room
see what happens
change the shape of the moon
watch what happens
Sometimes
I walk the streets for hours and wonder
why the petals break off from their flowers?

Chorus:

What drives me crazy?
in my mind a little hazy
Where's the borderline?
Crazy
What's the crime of being crazy?
Ain't it great to be crazy

Make me understand why I pretend with people
invisible hands point me in two directions
Sometimes, I feel a little lonely and
sometimes, I feel like others own me

Chorus:

What drives me crazy?
in my mind a little hazy
Where's the borderline?
Crazy
What's the crime of being crazy?
Ain't it great to be crazy

Seduce Me (With Your Words)

 

Midnight on Thursday in an unpainted hotel room
breathing yesterday's air...
Can't sleep in stiff sheets
and I can't sleep without you next to me
need to be covered by your words...
Suddenly I found your sweet letter
tucked inside my bag
and your voice became alive...
And it's amazing just how well you speak to me
when words are written down...

Chorus:

And you know how to move me without a
single touch of skin
oh baby now
you seduce me with your words
swim inside your precious world
you seduce me with your words
your words...

The sun wakes me up on Friday
I order coffee in
flip through an old newspaper
I wonder what was it like before the telephone
when courtship was through letters...
Suddenly I get your sweet e-mail flash before my eyes
and your voice becomes alive...
And it's amazing just how well you speak to me
when words are written down...

Chorus

I find it easier to write in my own way
then to always have to say the words
"I love you" again and again

Chorus

Just Be

 

When the show is over
and the day is through
When there's no one in this world
but me and you
I savor this precious time
No pretense or judgement
just silence and acceptance
and we can just be...
and we can just be

When I feel the colors of nature's eye
and I miss my family just because they're mine
then I realize
life's best friend is present time
And I love you for who you are
and not for what you've done so far
and we can just be...
and we can just be

When I forget to breathe
and end up measuring my life
defining who I am by what I'm doing
I just can't be
Before I can do I must be

And I value who you are
more than what you've done so far
and we can just be...
and we can just be

When I Need

Life is simple when I let it be
and all the answers are staring back at me
I take pleasure in the little things
'cause they add up to everything
I listen when my insides ring
and I learn to hear what each one brings

Chorus:

When I need rest
I sleep for hours
when I need cash
I work for money
when I need fame
I call my mother
but when I need you
I give you myself...

Everybody's got a dream to live
my dream is clearer
when I've got more to give
I may not be a millionaire
but I can take you anywhere
when you're low I'll fill you up
and share whatever's in my cup

Chorus

And now I just want to live
and now I just want to feel
that it's important to give....

...When I need you I give myself...
when I need a crowd, I throw a party
when I need to zone, I watch some TV
when I need patience, I take a deep breath
but when I need you...
I give you myself

4 Things

What holds us back
and pushes us off track?
Kills our dreams
and smashes all that we believe?
4 things

Chorus:
Fear
doubt
guilt
worry
my own judge and jury
they make my life blurry
fear, doubt, guilt, worry
don't let them trap you...

They take control
and suck the life out of your soul
go back and find
the source that's locked inside your mind
and clear the...

Chorus

Am I writing my own kind of therapy?
Without a way to get there
I can feel the thoughts that destroy me,
and I'm aware...

Chorus

One Second

 

In just one second everything changed
you were the laughter in my journal
breathing my praise
In just one second you flew off the page
now if time could just rewind I'd see your face

And I can't process it all
can't process it all
can't process it all, at all
and I'm obsessed with it all
'cause I can't process it all, at all, at all

Chorus:

In just one second
just one second, oh
one second
just one second, oh

One second everything changed
now the ground beneath has crumbled
and blown away
In just one second ten years have aged
I didn't grasp on to the moments now it's too late
And I can't process it all
can't process it all
can't process it all, at all
and I'm obsessed with it all
'cause I can't process it all

What still remains when everything changes?
I need explaining when everything changes

Chorus

Everything changes
everything changes, changes
in one second
everything changes, changes
in one second

Dear Ani

Dear Ani,
Well I don't know you at all
except for what I've read about you
but I'd rather know you from the songs
that you've fed into me
'cause they're what move me most
though I've just had my first course
I'm ready for some more

Chorus:

And what comes out of you
is different from what comes out of me
but it comes and I'm grateful
and you've inspired me
to pull this out for you
and let it spill all over me
when it comes I'm grateful
so let the fire breathe
Dear Ani

Dear Ani,
You are one of those few
who's not afraid to say just how you feel
and not afraid to do exactly what you want to
well, you're not perfect, no
but you work hard for what you want
create your own reality

Chorus
