Wake Up Lyrics

You like snow but only if it’s warm
You like rain but only if it’s dry
There’s no sentimental value to the rose that fell on your floor
There’s no fundamental excuse for the granted I’m taken for

 

‘Cause it’s easy not to
So much easier not to
And what goes around never comes around to you

 

You like pain but only if it doesn’t hurt too much
And you sit, and you wait, to receive
There’s an obvious attraction
To the path of least resistance in your life
Well there’s an obvious aversion no amount of my insistence
Could make you try tonight

 

‘Cause it’s easy not to
So much easier not to
And what goes around never comes around to you

To you, to you, to you, to you, to you

 

There’s no love, no money, no thrill anymore

There’s an apprehensive naked little trembling boy

With his head in his hands

And there’s an underestimated and impatient little girl
Raising her hand

 

But it’s easy not to
So much easier not to
And what goes around never comes around to you
To you, to you

 

Get up, get up, get up off of it
Get up, get up, get up off of it
Get out, get outta here, enough already
Get up, get up, get up off of it
Wake up

Not The Doctor Lyrics

I don’t want to be the filler if the void is solely yours

I don’t want to be your glass of single malt whiskey

Hidden in the bottom drawer

I don’t want to be a bandage if the wound is not mine

Lend me some fresh air

I don’t want to be adored for what I merely represent to you

I don’t want to be your babysitter

You’re a very big boy now

I don’t want to be your mother

I didn’t carry you in my womb for nine months

Show me the back door

Visiting hours are 9 to 5 and if I show up at 10 past 6

Well I already know that you’d find some way to sneak me in and oh

Mind the empty bottle with the holes along the bottom

You see it’s too much to ask for and I am not the doctor

I don’t want to be the sweeper of the egg shells that you walk upon

And I don’t want to be your other half, I believe that 1 and 1 make 2

I don’t want to be your food or the light from the fridge on your face

At midnight, hey

What are you hungry for

I don’t want to be the glue that holds your pieces together

I don’t want to be your idol

See this pedestal is high and I’m afraid of heights

I don’t want to be lived through

A vicarious occasion

Please open the window

Visiting hours are 9 to 5 and if I show up at 10 past 6

Well I already know that you’d find some way to sneak me in and oh

Mind the empty bottle with the holes along the bottom

You see it’s too much to ask for and I am not the doctor

I don’t want to live on someday when my motto is last week

I don’t want to be responsible for your fractured heart

And it’s wounded beat

I don’t want to be a substitute for the smoke you’ve been inhaling

What do you thank me

What do you thank me for

Visiting hours are 9 to 5 and if I show up at 10 past 6

Well I already know that you’d find some way to sneak me in and oh

Mind the empty bottle with the holes along the bottom

You see it’s too much to ask for and I am not the doctor

Ironic Lyrics

An old man turned ninety-eight
He won the lottery and died the next day
It’s a black fly in your Chardonnay
It’s a death row pardon two minutes too late
And isn’t it ironic… don’t you think

 

It’s like rain on your wedding day
It’s a free ride when you’ve already paid
It’s the good advice that you just didn’t take

Who would’ve thought… it figures

 

Mr. Play It Safe was afraid to fly
He packed his suitcase and kissed his kids goodbye
He waited his whole damn life to take that flight
And as the plane crashed down he thought
“Well isn’t this nice…”

 

And isn’t it ironic… don’t you think

It’s like rain on your wedding day
It’s a free ride when you’ve already paid
It’s the good advice that you just didn’t take
Who would’ve thought… it figures

 

Well life has a funny way of sneaking up on you
When you think everything’s okay and everything’s going right
And life has a funny way of helping you out when
You think everything’s gone wrong and everything blows up.. in your face

 

A traffic jam when you’re already late
A no-smoking sign on your cigarette break
It’s like ten thousand spoons when all you need is a knife
It’s meeting the man of my dreams
And then meeting his beautiful wife

 

And isn’t it ironic… don’t you think
A little too ironic… and yeah, I really do think…

It’s like rain on your wedding day
It’s a free ride when you’ve already paid
It’s the good advice that you just didn’t take
Who would’ve thought… it figures

 

Life has a funny way of sneaking up on you

Life has a funny, funny way of helping you out

Helping you out…

This is a fun little song that really stretches the definition of irony. Most would say the situations in this song aren’t really examples of irony, but are just unfortunate situations or coincidences.

Mary Jane Lyrics

What’s the matter Mary Jane, you had a hard day
As you place the don’t disturb sign on the door
You lost your place in line again, what a pity
You never seem to want to dance anymore

It’s a long way down
On this roller coaster
The last chance streetcar
Went off the track
And you’re on it

I hear you’re counting sheep again, Mary Jane
What’s the point of trying to dream anymore
I hear you’re losing weight again, Mary Jane
Do you ever wonder who you’re losing it for

Well it’s full speed baby
In the wrong direction
There’s a few more bruises
If that’s the way
You insist on heading

Please be honest Mary Jane
Are you happy
Please don’t censor your tears

You’re the sweet crusader
And you’re on your way
You’re the last great innocent
And that’s why I love you

So take this moment Mary Jane and be selfish
Worry not about the cars that go by
‘Cause all that matters Mary Jane is your freedom
So keep warm my dear, keep dry

Tell me
Tell me
What’s the matter Mary Jane
Tell me
Tell me
Please be honest Mary Jane
Tell me

Head Over Feet Lyrics

I had no choice but to hear you
You stated your case time and again
I thought about it

You treat me like I’m a princess
I’m not used to liking that
You ask how my day was

You’ve already won me over, in spite of me
Don’t be alarmed if I fall head over feet
And don’t be surprised if I love you for all that you are
I couldn’t help it
It’s all your fault

Your love is thick, and it swallowed me whole
You’re so much braver than I gave you credit for
That’s not lip service

You’ve already won me over, in spite of me
And don’t be alarmed if I fall head over feet
And don’t be surprised if I love you for all that you are
I couldn’t help it
It’s all your fault

You are the bearer of unconditional things
You held your breath and the door for me
Thanks for your patience

You’re the best listener that I’ve ever met
You’re my best friend
Best friend with benefits
What took me so long?

I’ve never felt this healthy before
I’ve never wanted something rational
I am aware now
I am aware now

You’ve already won me over, in spite of me
And don’t be alarmed if I fall head over feet
And don’t be surprised if I love you for all that you are
I couldn’t help it
It’s all your fault

You’ve already won me over, in spite of me
And don’t be alarmed if I fall head over feet
And don’t be surprised if I love you for all that you are
I couldn’t help it
It’s all your fault

You Learn Lyrics

I recommend getting your heart trampled on to anyone
I recommend walking around naked in your living room
Swallow it down (what a jagged little pill)
It feels so good (swimming in your stomach)
Wait until the dust settles

 

You live you learn
You love you learn
You cry you learn
You lose you learn
You bleed you learn
You scream you learn

 

I recommend biting off more then you can chew to anyone
I certainly do
I recommend sticking your foot in your mouth at any time
Feel free
Throw it down (the caution blocks you from the wind)
Hold it up (to the rays)

 

You wait and see when the smoke clears

You live you learn
You love you learn
You cry you learn
You lose you learn
You bleed you learn
You scream you learn

 

Wear it out (the way a three-year-old would do)
Melt it down (you’re gonna have to eventually anyway)
The fire trucks are coming up around the bend

 

You live you learn
You love you learn
You cry you learn
You lose you learn
You bleed you learn
You scream you learn

You grieve you learn

You choke you learn
You laugh you learn
You choose you learn
You pray you learn
You ask you learn
You live you learn

Forgiven Lyrics

You know how us Catholic girls can be
High on, high on the little
We make up for so much time a little too late
I never forgot it, confusing as it was
No fun with no guilt feelings
The sinners, the saviors, the loverless priests
I’ll see you next Sunday

We all had our reasons to be there
We all had a thing or two to learn
We all needed something to cling to
So we did

I sang alleluia in the choir
Ale alleluia, luia, Luis
I confessed my darkest deeds to an envious man
My brothers they never went blind for what they did
But I may as well have
In the name of the father, the skeptic and the son
I had one more stupid question

We all had our reasons to be there
We all had a thing or two to learn
We all need something to cling to
So we did

What I learned I rejected but I believe again
I will suffer the consequence of this inquisition
If I jump in this fountain, will I be forgiven?

We all had our reasons to be there
We all had a thing or two to learn
We all needed something to cling to
So we did

We all had delusions in our head
We all had our minds made up for us
We had to believe in something
So we did

We all had our reasons to be there
We all had a ya ee, ya ee, ya ee to learn
We all needed something to cling to
So we did

So we did, yeah yay

Ooo Ooo ooo
So we did

Right Through You Lyrics

Wait a minute man

You mispronounced my name

You didn’t wait for all the information

Before you turned me away

Wait a minute sir

You kind of hurt my feelings

You see me as a sweet back-loaded puppet

And you’ve got meal ticket taste

I see right through you

I know right through you

I feel right through you

I walk right through you

You took me for a joke

You took me for a child

You took a long hard look at my ass

And then played golf for a while

Your shake is like a fish

You pat me on the head

You took me out to wine dine 69 me

But didn’t hear a damn word I said

I see right through you

I know right through you

I feel right through you

I walk right through you

Hello Mr. Man

You didn’t think I’d come back

You didn’t think I’d show up with my army

And this ammunition on my back

Now that I’m Miss Thing

Now that I’m a zillionaire

You scan the credits for your name

And wonder why it’s not there

I see right through you

I know right through you

I feel right through you

I walk right through you

Hand In My Pocket Lyrics

I’m broke, but I’m happy
I’m poor, but I’m kind
I’m short, but I’m healthy, yeah
I’m high, but I’m grounded
I’m sane, but I’m overwhelmed
I’m lost, but I’m hopeful, baby

 

And what it all comes down to
Is that everything’s gonna be fine, fine, fine
‘Cause I’ve got one hand in my pocket
And the other one is giving a high five

 

I feel drunk, but I’m sober
I’m young, and I’m underpaid
I’m tired, but I’m working, yeah
I care, but I’m restless
I’m here, but I’m really gone
I’m wrong, and I’m sorry, baby

 

And what it all comes down to
Is that everything’s gonna be quite alright
‘Cause I’ve got one hand in my pocket
And the other one is flicking a cigarette

 

And what it all comes down to
Is that I haven’t got it all figured out just yet
‘Cause I’ve got one hand in my pocket
And the other one is giving the peace sign

 

I’m free, but I’m focused
I’m green, but I’m wise
I’m hard, but I’m friendly, baby
I’m sad, but I’m laughing
I’m brave, but I’m chicken shit
I’m sick, but I’m pretty, baby

 

And what it all boils down to
Is that no one’s really got it figured out just yet
But I’ve got one hand in my pocket
And the other one is playing the piano

 

And what it all comes down to my friends, yeah
Is that everything is just fine, fine, fine
‘Cause I’ve got one hand in my pocket
And the other one is hailing a taxi cab

Perfect Lyrics

Sometimes is never quite enough
If you’re flawless, then you’ll win my love
Don’t forget to win first place
Don’t forget to keep that smile on your face

 

Be a good boy
Try a little harder
You’ve got to measure up
And make me prouder

 

How long before you screw it up
How many times do I have to tell you to hurry up
With everything I do for you
The least you can do is keep quiet

 

Be a good girl
You’ve gotta try a little harder
That simply wasn’t good enough
To make us proud

 

I’ll live through you
I’ll make you what I never was
If you’re the best, then maybe so am I
Compared to him compared to her
I’m doing this for your own damn good
You’ll make up for what I blew
What’s the problem, why are you crying

 

Be a good boy
Push a little farther now
That wasn’t fast enough
To make us happy
We’ll love you just the way you are
If you’re perfect
