Wonderful! Lyrics

  • 1. Five

    1. Five

    Five-hundred-thousand-dollar brain
    Not much to show for dues I’ve paid
    But a full spectrum soul
    Paired with King in my veins

    Five and twenty years breathing in
    Bound to someone else’s instructions
    But gaining confidence
    And finally my own friendship

    Chorus
    Now I won’t wait, I won’t wait
    Wait in line
    I won’t wait, I won’t wait
    Wait for what is meant to be mine

    Five times the fire of my youth
    Burning down doubts that she’d excused
    Revealing my own truth
    Breathtaking in all its views

    Chorus

    Up high five, we’re happy to climb
    It’s five o’clock somewhere
    And champagne will do fine
    X2

    Five fingers on each hand of mine
    They’ve made me overqualified
    Some told me to stand aside
    And they watched these little birds take flight

    Chorus

    Up high five, we’re happy to climb
    It’s five o’clock somewhere
    And champagne will do fine
    X2

    Chorus

    I won’t look away, won’t close my eyes
    ‘Cause I dreamt of this since I was five

  • 2. Starlight

    2. Starlight

    You and me and all the rest
    Lady Moon heard my request
    She keeps leading me back to you, back to you

    You and me and all the rest
    Old Man Sandman reminds when I protest
    He keeps leading me back to you, back to you

    Chorus
    I’ve let hope float on an illuminated route
    And now I’ll walk across those clouds
    I wanna soak in your starlight, hold you close
    And call you mine

    You and me and all the rest
    The Star Keepers sent me their very best
    They keep leading me back to you, back to you

    Chorus

    Who knew the world held you
    And Father Time was on our side
    Every ship we’d sail would collide
    Beneath velvet starlight

    You and me and all the rest
    Darling Dew Fairies long ago professed
    They keep leading me back to you
    And now we all bask in you

    Chorus

  • 3. Merry-Go-Round

    3. Merry-Go-Round

    I wanna make you smile, wanna make you dance
    I’ll prolly make you cry, if you give me the chance
    I wanna make you feel, feel!

    I wanna make you breakfast, wanna show you love
    But not just you ones who act the way I want
    Oh, boy, I’m for real, real!

    Chorus
    La da da di da, I know who I am and what I’ve done
    La da da di da, and I’m lovin’ this ride; no one has more fun
    La da da di da, I know who I am and where I’m from
    La da da di da, and I’m lovin’ this ride on my merry-go
    My merry-go-round of love

    I wanna make the blanket that you picnic on
    And daydream with you out on your front lawn
    I’ll bring some wine with me
    Cheers to everything

    Want you to be the author of my biography
    Want you to tell my truth as a comedy
    You can eventually let them all know that I can’t sew

    Chorus

    I wanna fold your heart like a paper plane
    And shoot it across all time and space
    I wanna make you soar to infinity and more

    I wanna plant your love under my piano
    So you’ll inspire me at every one of my shows
    I want your colors to glow in every note

    Chorus

  • 4. Technicolor Heart

    4. Technicolor Heart

    I wanna hitchhike the sky
    I wanna check out tonight
    I have no map, no matter
    I’ll hire fireflies

    I wanna scream my secrets
    I wanna feel the forfeit
    I’ve whispered too many wishes
    I want you to see them

    Hit me with your highest hopes
    Can you feel me?
    I’m coming, I’m coming home
    I’m always on the wind
    But this time will you let me in?

    Chorus
    You’ll get the best of me
    You’ll always get the best of me
    You carry my technicolor heart across the sky
    Hold me tight, hold me tight
    I’m still learning to fly
    I don’t know why you get the best of me

    Set your stack of critiques
    Next to all our chained melodies
    You’ve won your revolution
    On my soul your name is written

    The sky holds no religions
    Only raw, woven emotions
    And every butterfly shift affects
    Winged ripples in my direction

    So hit me with your highest hopes
    Can you feel me?
    I’m coming, I’m coming home
    I’m always on the wind
    But this time will you let me in?

    Chorus

    Why do I insist?
    Why do I persist?
    Why do I insist?
    Why do I persist?
    Oh, all that’s real, the heart feels
    And all I know is this
    And so I insist
    And so I persist

    Chorus

  • 5. I’d Give Anything

    5. I’d Give Anything

    Past the point of questioning
    Can’t pretend anymore you don’t see my meaning
    Unwilling to want any less
    Reaching for some real, unbroken happiness

    Do you know how far I’m willing to go?
    Now that you’re here, you have to know

    Chorus
    I know how to get along without asking for anything
    I know how to love beyond all the changing
    But I can’t seem to do without what I’ve found in you
    When it comes to you, I don’t know anything
    But I’d give anything

    Past the point of waiting
    Why should we stay quiet when our hearts are racing?
    In the light, I’m done holding back
    I can stand the brightness
    I don’t mind the consequence

    Do you know how far I’m willing to go?
    Now that you’re here, you have to know

    Chorus

    (Bridge)

    Chorus

  • 6. Wallpaper

    6. Wallpaper

    Stubborn, like me
    He admires my angry ways
    And though I’m a mystery
    When I swing, he’s unafraid

    Ambitious, like me
    But without the pretension
    An optimistic cynic
    Who sees me as the exception

    Chorus
    But I’ve reserved my right to lie
    I’ve reserved my right to hide
    Until this wallpaper falls
    These wallpapered halls
    Are all he’ll ever find

    Relentless, like me
    But his heart’s twice the size
    I feel foolish for wanting more
    I guess I’ll never mind, never mind

    Chorus

    Until this wallpaper falls
    From these wallpapered halls

    Chorus

    Don’t cry in, don’t cry in windows…
    X4

  • 7. Chasing Freedom

    7. Chasing Freedom

    God, I can’t seem to get this right
    Nothing can cut me quite like your eyes
    I know all about your sacrifice
    But have you ever felt as empty as I do tonight?

    Full-on access insecurities
    I withdrew as you dissected me
    Now, this hole in my heart indicts
    Adieu, my darling, adieu tonight

    There must be some place to belong
    Even for a tenant this flawed

    Chorus
    For all I can carry are my secrets
    And even I’m suspicious they’ll betray me
    And all I can depend on are my fears
    My most ambitious lies still won’t save me
    And all I can see are thieves below
    Waiting for me when I’ve had enough of chasing freedom

    Sometimes I wonder if there’s very much left
    If my soul checked out when my heart went
    Did I let them go to lighten my load?
    Did I leave them somewhere along the road?

    And yet I can’t help but ache for beauty
    To be shaped out of what’s left of me

    Chorus

    Alone
    I know I’ve gotta go, I’ve gotta go it all alone
    I’m all alone, alone
    I know I’ve gotta go, I’ve gotta go it all alone

    Hanging from the seventh story
    Do I have it in me?

    Chorus

  •  

  • 8. Wonderful

    8. Wonderful

    I don’t like how it sounds to drop your love off halfway
    But I can’t afford time to break
    With eyes shut tight, I pray for strength

    I’m on low as I drive blind; my only hope is move fast
    It doesn’t matter where I run out
    As long as I leave you, leave you in my past

    But I can’t get past this sky you look to
    And I, I can’t get out beyond this moon
    And I, I know you’re breathing as I’m breathing
    And I know these stars shine down on you

    Chorus
    Why did you have to be wonderful?
    Why did you have to love me?
    Why did you have to be so wonderful and cause me to dream?
    Please take back all your wonderful
    I can’t let myself believe
    I should be happy to have held someone so wonderful
    When you’re not mine to keep

    I don’t like how it sounds to beg this love to go numb
    With cries craving to forget
    Convincing this heart you aren’t worth it

    I won’t let you see me struggle
    I’ll smile lies, I’ll stand tall, I won’t let on that I’ve lost
    I won’t let you in, no, not at all

    But I can’t get past this sky you look to
    And I, I can’t get out beyond this moon
    And I, I know you’re breathing as I’m breathing
    And I know these stars shine down on you

    Chorus

    You’re not mine to keep
    You’re not mine to keep
    X2

    Chorus

  • 9. Nothing’s Changed

    9. Nothing’s Changed

    Bathed in regrets
    Drenched with shallowness
    The words were said
    Yet not as I’d meant
    But what’s the difference?

    I’ll take it all lightly like I’ve a poor memory
    I’ll take it all lightly like it’s been easy for me
    ‘Cause I don’t need anyone’s sympathy
    I’ll look back and laugh, though it was never funny

    Chorus
    It’s going down, and still it can’t be named
    You won’t admit to anything; nothing’s changed
    And I’m as mad as ever, not sobered by my shame
    Serving my heart on a platter; no, nothing’s changed

    Drink sorrow down
    Keep you your doubts
    Left here to drown
    I won’t call you out
    You’ve more to lose now

    I’ll take it all lightly like I’ve a poor memory
    I’ll take it all lightly like it’s been easy for me
    ‘Cause I don’t need anyone’s sympathy
    I’ll look back and laugh though it was never funny

    Chorus

    Even if my thoughts were spotless
    I wouldn’t feel sunny
    I’d still trip into you
    And end up falling

    Chorus

  • 10. Forgetting

    10. Forgetting

    This is the day, mark the hour
    Jot it down in red
    As I ascend to fragment shadows
    Heart has forgotten

    Where I’ve belonged all along
    Holds real and right
    Soft certainty assures me
    All is whole again tonight

    If my life is not my own, let it be known
    I’ll leave it underwater
    I don’t need to see
    I just need to breathe

    Chorus
    And yet he looks at me so knowingly
    As if I somehow hold a key
    What have I done, what have I done
    So worth forgetting?

    Contain your curiosity
    She is a child and a pest
    Pain has lost to luminosity
    What a joy to forget!

    So did I love him, did I love him not?
    Leave the petals to decide
    If our paths are intertwined
    He’ll make his way back to my side

    If my life is not my own, let it be known
    I’ll leave it underwater
    I don’t need to see
    I just need to breathe

    Chorus

    If my life is not my own, let it be known
    I’ll leave it underwater
    I don’t need to see
    I just need to breathe

    Chorus

  • 11. Fraud

    11. Fraud

    Instincts are reckless
    And we were feeling fearless
    But we did nothing wrong
    We did nothing wrong

    Cautiously candid
    Now indelibly branded
    We did nothing wrong
    We did nothing wrong

    So why can’t I cut these ties?
    If I’m just some girl you met one night
    I really have no right

    Chorus
    Yeah, we did nothing wrong
    Except I’m a fraud
    I’m just a hypocrite
    I say what I don’t mean
    So you can’t hurt me
    The truth is you had me

    Craving apparitions
    Any remnant of what was
    Before you knew it, I was gone
    Ensured we did nothing wrong

    Transparent ties
    Uncertain demise
    We did nothing wrong
    So why is everything wrong?

    So why can’t I cut these ties?
    If I’m just some girl you met one night
    I really have no right

    Chorus

    Honestly, I bet you can’t handle being lonely
    Honestly, I bet you hate being her everything
    Honestly, I bet the thought of me makes you feel guilty
    ‘Cause, honestly, you’ll never love her the way you love me
    God, I really have no right

    Chorus

    The truth is you had all of me

  • 12. Our Fairy Tale

    12. Our Fairy Tale

    You know I’m not afraid
    You know I don’t know how to hate
    So you pluck and pull
    And so you tear and you take

    You know I’m not a fool
    Until it comes to you
    You think I’ve never had a thing to lose
    You think I’ve never been used

    Well, maybe that was true
    ‘Til you

    Chorus
    God, I, I don’t mind losing myself again
    It looks as though I won’t be happy unless this is it
    But you’re running off, off and away with my fearlessness
    And you, you, you blew through me and all my open doors
    Left windows swinging back and forth
    Still holding on, still holding out hope for our fairy tale

    Capsized boats and worn out lungs
    Bitter doesn’t suit me, though it looks good on some
    When you hear my name
    Does it hurt you much?

    ‘Cause you know I’ll find my way to that rainbow
    And you’ll cry to realize where you refused to go is so damn
    So damn, so damn beautiful

    Chorus

    I’m not sorry I made you feel unworthy
    I’m not sorry I took your heart with me
    I know you love me
    I wish you’d hurry
    X2

    Chorus

    I’m not sorry I made you feel unworthy
    I’m not sorry I took your heart with me
    I know you love me
    I wish you’d hurry

  • 13. Superpower

    13. Superpower

    They all wanna know what I’m all about
    They can feel that I’m unique, but they don’t know how
    It’s all the time, but the magic’s all mine
    Every single all-night you’ll be seeing me shine

    I’m always so sure I’m approachable
    A genuine raised Mid-western girl
    But I’m in my own league; I’m a situation
    Bullshitting with me requires education

    Chorus
    Now I’ve gone and made you want it all
    And I can’t undo my work; I was born a firework
    My superpower is the key
    It’s my ability to see your beauty

    Good luck keeping up; I’m spontaneous
    With my happy-go-lucky charisma
    I’m practically mystical ‘cause I’m running this show
    Babe, it’s only natural; I was meant to sparkle

    Chorus

    Count it down, launching now, start it up
    Let’s let them see what we’re made of
    X3

    Chorus


Classic Jackie…


 

Lyrics

  • Up My Sleeve

    You interrupted my vigil and played my heart strings
    Composing foreign lullabies about a home never seen
    Held me under your breath, seemed to see through my dress
    Moved me with dark eyes as you asked me to sing

    Now you play me as you like
    Play me wrong, play me right

    You make me wanna gamble the night
    Lose it all in the blink of your eyes
    I’d live on the run to stake claim to this love
    Fall under your spell as I come undone
    To hell with this world, I’d risk it all for your love

    So kiss my crimson lips beneath the silver sky
    Hypnotize my kips before the sun can rise
    Dive deep into me with your melody
    I’ll take you in like the tide, tuck your heart up my sleeve

    Let’s let the cards fall, down on the table
    I sense your restlessness and I’m as eager as able
    To transcend time and ignore every sign
    I’ll wrap you up in my voice, no fiction, no fable

    I’ll play you as I like
    Play you wrong, play you right

    You make me wanna gamble the night
    Lose it all in the blink of your eyes
    I’d live on the run to stake claim to this love
    Fall under your spell as I come undone
    To hell with this world, I’d risk it all for your love

    So kiss my crimson lips beneath the silver sky
    Hypnotize my kips before the sun can rise
    Dive deep into me with your melody
    I’ll take you in like the tide, tuck your heart up my sleeve

    Now nothing can unravel this, we’ll never be free
    No matter who you’re with, you’ll mistake her for me
    We’ll meet in our dreams, love madly in our sleep
    But no matter where you wake up, your heart will still belong to me

    You make me wanna gamble the night
    Lose it all in the blink of your eyes
    I’d live on the run to stake claim to this love
    Fall under your spell as I come undone
    To hell with this world, I’d risk it all for your love

    So kiss my crimson lips beneath the silver sky
    Hypnotize my kips before the sun can rise
    Dive deep into me with your melody
    I’ll take you in like the tide, tuck your heart up my sleeve

  • Falling For Strangers

    I’ll be ambiguous if you’re uncomfortable
    No specifics if you’re uncomfortable
    Won’t interrupt whatever’s new
    I’m sure she’s lovely, if I know you

    But do you think of me from time to time
    I hope you do from time to time
    And laugh at love so improvised
    If I asked you now, now would you lie

    About the night seared in my mind
    The night I should’ve spent my your side
    About that night I wouldn’t meet your eyes
    That night I left my heart stayed behind

    Please tell me you won’t forget
    How we were the day we met
    Guess we never could’ve guessed we were in danger
    Thought I’d nothing left to lose
    But my guard crashed down, my heart shook loose
    Now here I am, a helpless fool
    I need to stop falling for strangers

    Thousands of miles across the sea
    I’d brave every storm if you’d wait for me
    I know you’re not mine anymore
    But how’d you feel if I stood at your door?

    On the night seared in my mind
    The night I should’ve spent my your side
    About that night I wouldn’t meet your eyes
    That night I left my heart stayed behind

    Please tell me you won’t forget
    How we were the day we met
    Guess we never could’ve guessed we were in danger
    Thought I’d nothing left to lose
    But my guard crashed down, my heart shook loose
    Now here I am, a helpless fool
    I need to stop falling for strangers

    Imagine what might be if I’d have stayed
    And this was the risk I’d dared to take
    Instead of my haunting mistake
    Now I’m here, but it’s clear I’m too late

    Does it lift you up or make you bleed
    This little tale of you and me?
    What would its moral be?
    Boys and girls, don’t let your hearts run free?

  • Gone to Waste

    I set my love at your feet
    Thought maybe you’d lend me
    A pair of hands to hold my heart

    Was I vague in intention
    Thought I felt affection
    In the hands that hold my heart

    Time confuses everything
    But time has no power over some things

    You have my love, make no mistake
    But is it a burden or a keepsake?
    Do you know, can you care?
    Or has my heart gone to waste?

    This is love, I’ll allow
    Can you return it somehow?
    I’m starting to fear your hold on my heart

    I know it’s not much
    But you’ve taken enough
    To humble me as you hold my heart

    Time confuses everything
    But time has no power over some things

    You have my love, make no mistake
    But is it a burden or a keepsake?
    Do you know, can you care?
    Or has my heart gone to waste?

    You had to have known my heart was exposed
    Yet here I still wait, watching it go to waste

    You have my love, make no mistake
    But is it a burden or a keepsake?
    Do you know, can you care?
    Or has my heart gone to waste?

  • I was Wrong

    No motives, long glances
    Chemistry, romance in one quick kiss

    Fast talking, slow walking
    Honesty so easy
    Why am I telling you this?

    I know you, yet I don’t
    Lost out here far from home
    No doubts, no questions
    You just invite me in

    I though I knew what love was
    A sweet simple song
    But you made me feel more
    I’m glad I was wrong

    So long since we’ve touched, this memory’s not enough
    I want you
    But do I miss you
    Or the image I’ve painted of you?

    You know me yet you don’t
    Lost out here, far from home
    No doubts, no questions
    I just invite you in

    I though I knew what love was
    A sweet simple song
    But you made me feel more
    I’m glad I was wrong

    How did I change so fast?
    I was so numb ’til you
    Sweet hope I hold to fast
    Knowing what love can do

    I though I knew what love was
    A sweet simple song
    But you made me feel more
    I’m glad I was wrong

    No motives, long glances
    Chemistry, romance

  • Bleed for You

    I was a Lite-Brite, a heart-shaped one
    You plugged me in, you lit me up
    Together we were bright red beautiful
    A veritable masterpiece, magical

    But I’m fragile, so it turns out
    Susceptible to short circuit meltdown
    Addicted to your electricity
    The crash from your current is killing me

    How could you? How could you?
    Without a moment to plead
    How did I make so damn easy
    For you to pull the plug on me?

    Now I sit here, restrained, all light drained
    From my heart-shaped fuse box
    But hot tears won’t subside from my eyes
    Despite near fatal shock
    I’ll take drastic action with desperate heart
    Steal it from it’s cage, I’ll pull it apart
    From my flat-lining chest, concede its contents to you
    Don’t you dare look away, I want you to see how I bleed for you

    I was in agony when you tripped the breaker
    Static electricity, I lost my sparker
    My magnetism’s gone, something’s wrong with me
    Danger, no voltage. I need an EKG.
    And, suddenly, I don’t feel much like me
    The misery lifts, is this purgatory?
    No, God, take me back, but first tell me
    Did she hot-wire him or did he give her the key?

    Sadistic, masochistic, I don’t wanna be free
    I want your touch so damn much that it might destroy me

    Now I sit here, restrained, all light drained
    From my heart-shaped fuse box
    But hot tears won’t subside from my eyes
    Despite near fatal shock
    I’ll take drastic action with desperate heart
    Steal it from it’s cage, I’ll pull it apart
    From my flat-lining chest, concede its contents to you
    Don’t you dare look away, I want you to see how I bleed

    I don’t want it back, won’t take it back
    Keep it as a souvenir
    And deal with the aftermath
    Of my heartbeat in your ear

    I’ll take drastic action with desperate heart
    Steal it from it’s cage, I’ll pull it apart
    From my flat-lining chest, concede its contents to you
    Don’t you dare look away, I want you to see how I bleed for you

  • Pirate Heart

    I have no perspective, I have no conscious
    Gagged, unheard, eat your last words
    Bite down hard on righteousness

    I tried to bury this baggage, thought I’d disguise my own absence
    Restart, re-chart, without my water-logged heart
    But I was taken in by vengeance

    There’s something sweet in losing faith
    There’s something free in sinking down
    I can’t decide if I swallowed my pride or if it sank with me when I drowned

    Now I’m done with my honor, you left me torn and tortured
    But it’s my turn to play captor and now I’ve got you cornered
    Where’s your black heart now, where’s your courage
    This pirate heart has you hostage

    I have no conditions, there’s no ransom to demand
    You’ve no remorse, so let revenge take its course
    There is no law and nothing to remand

    I tried to choke down disregard, thought I could plunder memories
    Did you feel tough when you watched them wash up?
    Did you enjoy destroying me?

    There’s something sweet in losing faith
    There’s something free in sinking down
    I can’t decide if I swallowed my pride or if it sank with me when I drowned

    Now I’m done with my honor, you left me torn and tortured
    But it’s my turn to play captor and now I’ve got you cornered
    Where’s your black heart now, where’s your courage
    This pirate heart has you hostage

    I won’t apologize, I won’t apologize
    I’m sure you’ve realized that I refuse to rationalize
    There is no turning back now, I cannot empathize
    Remember when I had a human heart that could still cry
    All that has died

    And now I’m done with my honor, you left me torn and tortured
    But it’s my turn to play captor, and now I’ve got you cornered
    Where’s your black heart now, where’s you courage
    This pirate heart has you hostage

  • Surrender

    Can’t fight my instincts anymore
    Not right to lead you on anymore
    So I know what I need to do
    And I know what it’s gonna do to you

    But it’s time to stop this second-guessing
    No more tears to cry, I’m done, I’m gone.

    Surrender, surrender, it’s done.
    Surrender, surrender, we’re done.

    This perfect life is hard to let go
    But perfect lies hurt more, let’s let go
    I’m sorry, I’m not sure where we went wrong
    I’m sorry. I’m lost like you, no clue how to move on

    But it’s time to stop this second-guessing
    No more tears to cry, I’m done, I’m gone.

    Surrender, surrender, it’s done.
    Surrender, surrender, we’re done.

    Please understand we can’t control this
    I’ve fought and failed, so with this last kiss

    Surrender, surrender, it’s done.
    Surrender, surrender, we’re done.

  • At The Core

    Chapel walls build in vain
    Sacred space, heart in chains
    Promises; lies disguised
    Nothing real, nothing right

    I don’t need you to see my point of view; hold onto what you want
    But when you cave in and feel your grip loose
    In that darkness, there will be love

    Tired throat, few faint beams
    Shining through these cracked dream
    But morning breaks and sadness drains
    At the core, hope remains

    I don’t need you to see my point of view; hold onto what you want
    But when you cave in and feel your grip loose
    In that darkness, there will be love

    I didn’t know what to do when everything fell through
    I’d been taught my kindness was a weakness
    I didn’t know who to trust, I gave up on everyone
    And there it was

    I don’t need you to see my point of view; hold onto what you want
    But when you cave in and feel your grip loose
    In that darkness, there will be love

    I don’t need you to tell me it’s true; hold onto what you want
    But when your soul has spilled in front of you
    In that darkness, there will be love

    Look for love and you’ll find…

  • My Own Song

    Maybe I’ll fly to Paris
    Rent from a lady who makes great soufleés
    Sing all night and sleep all day
    And if I like Cabaret, maybe I’ll stay, maybe I’ll stay
    Ooo la la, maybe I’ll stay

    Maybe I’ll fly to Rio
    Compre um gato or take in a stray
    Sing all night and sleep all day
    If I like to samba every day, maybe I’ll stay, maybe I’ll stay
    Meow! maybe I’ll stay

    ‘Cause anything could happen
    I could end up anywhere
    Am I just escaping?
    Not sure if I care

    It’s my time to fly, better off not asking why
    I’ll make it up as I go along, but it’s time for me to write my own song
    It’s my time to fly, chin up love, no need to cry
    If you want, sing along, but it’s time for me to write my own song

    Maybe I’ll fly to Bali
    Start reading palms, do my yoga, and pray
    Sing all night and sleep all day
    If I feel good soaking up the rays maybe I’ll stay, maybe I’ll stay
    Ohm! maybe I’ll stay

    ‘Cause anything could happen
    I could end up anywhere
    Am I just escaping?
    Not sure if I care

    It’s my time to fly, better off not asking why
    I’ll make it up as I go along, but it’s time for me to write my own song
    It’s my time to fly, chin up love, no need to cry
    If you want, sing along, but it’s time for me to write my own song

    I need more than a vacay, get me to an airplane
    I’ll throw it all down the drain, just get me on the next train
    I’m crazy, a touch insane, I’m that girl you cannot tame
    But when I’m here you’re glad you came, and no one makes you feel the same
    Put our picture in a frame, I might not be back again
    These memories are all I’ll save, destiny’s calling my name

    ‘Cause anything could happen
    I could end up anywhere
    Am I just escaping?
    I don’t really care!

    It’s my time to fly, better off not asking why
    I’ll make it up as I go along, but it’s time for me to write my own song
    It’s my time to fly, chin up love, no need to cry
    If you want, sing along, but it’s time for me to write my own song

    Yeah, it’s time for you to write your own song
    ‘Cause before you know it, I will be gone

  • Classic Movie

    I can’t seem to quit crushing on you
    But you’re there and I’m here, your affection unclear
    Mine’s fuzzy too, I hardly know you
    But are we meant to be, I don’t have a clue

    But I can’t stop the slideshow in my mind
    When I open my eyes what do I expect to find?
    Daydreams are making me lovesick
    How did I end up in this chick flick?

    On a hot summer night with your eyes on me
    I’d been crying, but you were trying to get me to sing out in the street
    Didn’t know what a maze my heart was, never saw my tears
    They flew away as we jumped into a classic movie

    We hit it off, that much was obvious
    So funny how we were so damn serious
    You asked me to stay, but I got on that train
    And you’re all I’ve thought of since that day

    Now I can’t stop the slideshow in my mind
    When I open my eyes what do I expect to find?
    Daydreams are making me lovesick
    How did I end up in this chick flick?

    On a hot summer night with your eyes on me
    I’d been crying, but you were trying to get me to sing out in the street
    Didn’t know what a maze my heart was, never saw my tears
    They flew away as we jumped into a classic movie

    Now this is where you get on that plane to rescue me
    And this is where you admit I’m the girl of your dreams
    Roll take one, the big kiss, my favorite scene!
    And baby, if you want, they’re be some action in this movie

    On a hot summer night with your eyes on me
    I’d been crying, but you were trying to get me to sing out in the street
    Didn’t know what a maze my heart was, never saw my tears
    They flew away as we jumped into a classic movie

    Now take me to my happy ending
    I’m so glad we’re done pretending
    Get your hanky, keep it handy
    ‘Cause we’re living in a classic movie

  • My Missing Variable

    I purpose you lie next to me, baby
    I hypothesize you’d be the perfect big spoon, let’s test my theory
    I’m only approximate in my measurements, so I’m gonna need your assistance
    If I’m to be accurate, baby

    I think you’re the one when it comes to those lips, baby
    My envy of your cigarettes had me perplexed when we met
    But I’d ignore statistics and take the risk if you’d give me a kiss
    I know I won’t wanna quit you, baby

    This could be big, this could be big, this development
    I need to take this finding back to my lab and study it

    ‘Cause you and I are off the charts, something science has never seen
    You and I and our arrhythmic hearts, in my equation an anomaly
    Estimating, investing, calculating
    A missing variable, this missing variable, you’re my missing variable

    You’re the man I want to handle me, baby
    Your talents exceed conventionality, sex appeal, and personality
    I’ve already researched it, analyzed it, and hands down you’re my favorite
    All the data’s undeniable, baby

    This could be big, this could be big, this development
    I need to take this finding back to my lab and study it

    ‘Cause you and I are off the charts, something science has never seen
    You and I and our arrhythmic hearts, in my equation an anomaly
    Estimating, investing, calculating
    A missing variable, this missing variable, you’re my missing variable

    I’d like to experiment and meet your parents
    With genes like yours and my test scores
    They’ll surely approve if you make a move
    They’ll want you and me to make babies

    ‘Cause you and I are off the charts, something science has never seen
    You and I and our arrhythmic hearts, in my equation an anomaly
    Estimating, investing, calculating
    A missing variable, this missing variable, you’re my missing variable

  • Yours to Own

    A kind of crazy unconditional
    The sort of love that’s not optional
    Often easy, sometimes cheesy
    Don’t care if we’re dysfunctional

    ‘Cause I know each of your expressions
    And it goes without mention
    To me you can’t lie, but why even try?
    With me there is no question

    That I’ll be your wing-chick, your sidekick
    Your chicken noodle when you’re sick

    You could travel the globe and never come home
    You might forget all we’ve done, the times we’ve known
    But no matter how far off my path, I won’t hold you back
    My undying affection is yours to own

    You’re the one I’d pick first on my team
    The one who doesn’t take me too seriously
    When life goes sour, you sweeten the hour
    Add sprinkles to my ice cream

    Please just call me by my nickname
    And I’ll return the favor just the same
    Our brand of stupid always makes me lose it
    Your antics drive me insane

    But if you’re ever in danger
    Don’t be a silly stranger
    I’ll be your superhero, pink Power Ranger

    You could travel the globe and never come home
    You might forget all we’ve done, the times we’ve known
    But no matter how far off my path, I won’t hold you back
    My undying affection is yours to own

    You’re like the fizz in my Coke
    And I love fizz, no joke
    You’re essential, I say
    And I like it that way!

    You could travel the globe and never come home
    You might forget all we’ve done, the times we’ve known
    But no matter how far off my path, I won’t hold you back
    My undying affection is yours to own
