I was born in a lighthouse, my mother was the sea
I crawled to school each morning, when it occurred to me
That life's just a mood ring we're not allowed to see
And this is what it said to me

My room is comfortably small
With rubber lining the walls
And there's someone always calling my name
He calls when I'm alone
And he calls when I'm not home
And he calls when I'm stuck out in the rain
I'm insane
I'm insane
I'm insane
I'm insane

Now listen all you swingers, don't you try to tag along
I know monkey see, but monkey's dead, for you it would be wrong
Put a dime in my jukebox, you'll only hear this song
And it won't be fun for long

Because my room is comfortably small
With rubber lining the walls
And there's someone always calling my name
He calls when I'm alone
And he calls when I'm not home
And he calls when I'm stuck out in the rain
I'm insane
I'm insane
I'm insane
I'm insane

Thank you
Thank you

My room is comfortably small
With rubber lining the walls
And there's someone always calling my name
He calls when I'm alone
And he calls when I'm not home
And he calls when I'm stuck out in the rain
I'm insane
I'm insane
I'm insane
I'm insane

no one's picking up the phone
guess it's me and me
and this little masochist
she's ready to confess
all the things that i never thought
that she could feel and

hey jupiter
nothings been the same
so are you gay
are you blue
thought we both could use a friend
to run to
and i thought i wouldn't have to be
with you something new

sometimes i breathe you in
and i know you know
and sometimes you take a swim
found your writing on my wall
if my hearts soaking wet
boy your boots can leave a mess

hey jupiter
nothings been the same
so are you gay
are you blue
thought we both could use a friend
to run to
and i thought you wouldn't have to keep
with me
hiding

thought i knew myself so well
all the dolls i had
took my leather off the shelf
your apocalypse was fab
for a girl who couldn't choose between
the shower or the bath

and i thought i wouldn't have to be
with you
a magazine

no one's picking up the phone
guess it's clear he's gone
and this little masochist
is lifting up her dress
guess i thought i could never feel
the things i feel
hey jupiter

so are you gay
are you blue
thought we both could use a friend to run to
hey jupiter
nothing's been the same
so are you safe
now we're through
thought we both could use a friend to run to
hey jupiter

I am leaving for the Michigan Womyn's Music Festival. I should return late on Sunday, August 12.
Tú me pides que te deje ahora, ahora
Ahora cuando más te necesito
Tú me dices que este amor se fue al olvido ahora
Ahora cuando yo ya no te olvido
Tú me pides que seamos solo amigos, amigos
Y a mí no me interesa ser tu amiga
Tú me dices que este amor ha sido un malo
Que malo que dices eso, pero que bueno que se acabó

Mala gente, te burlaste de mis sentimientos
y ahora te lamentas
Mala gente, vas a pagarla caro
porque a mí tú ya no me interesa
Mala gente, porque tu eres un mentiroso y una mala gente
¡Y en el infierno enterita enterita te vas a quemar!

Tú me pides que regrese ahora, ahora
Y ahora es a mí a quien lo le importa
Tú me pides que seamos más que amigos, amigos
Y amigos para que si no hay cariño
Hoy por fin me he dado cuenta de tu engaño
De tu mala calaña y tanto mal que me hiciste tú

Mala gente, te burlaste de mis sentimientos
y ahora te lamentas
Mala gente, vas a pagarla caro
porque a mí tú ya no me interesas
Mala gente, porque tu eres un mentiroso y una mala gente
¡Y en el infierno enterita enterita te vas a quemar!
A turn of fate
Tonight life could create
If you still believe in all those stories.
You lie in wait
Not knowing what I'll say
You lie still believing
In the morning.

It's all I need
Draws me in way too deep
I'm coming clean here before you.

I ask you to come when I call
And let me in
After all.
Show me who you are
I have no way of knowing if I'm going too far.

Come on betray
Those who left me where I lay.
Come on
And change me without warning.

Well I could turn the tide
With one look from my eyes
If you'll just believing in the morning.

It's all I need.
Feel my fingers begging please.
It's all I see
Here before me.

I see you to come when I call
And let me in
After all.
Show me who you are.
I have no way knowing if I'm going too far.
I have no way knowing if I'm going too far.

But here goes nothing...
Here goes nothing...


A turn of fate
Will leave me in it's wake.
I don't know what awaits me
In the morning.

But tonight
You'll come when I call
You'll let me in
After all.

You'll show me who you are.
I have no way knowing if I'm going too far.
I have no way knowing if I'm going too far.
I have no way knowing if I'm going too far.
I have no way knowing if I'm going too far.

But here goes nothing...
Here goes nothing...
Am I awake?
What time is it?
When I get through this day
Can someone tell me how
And how much longer now
Am I awake?

The coffee's cold, did I forget to drink it yet?
Did I forget?
My clothes are wet I don't remember drinking it

When I get through this part
Will the next one be the same?
Will I be wondering
If I'm awake?

These are not the clothes I had on when I went to bed
And something else besides my hair is growing from my head
And when I close my eyes it looks the same as when I open them again

Am I awake?

What time is it?

Is it that time again?
Wasn't it already then?
So does it have to be
The time it was again?

When I get through the day
Can't someone tell me how
And how much longer now
Am I awake?

Am I awake?

When I get through this day
Can someone tell me how
And how much longer now
Am I awake?

When I get through this day
Can someone tell me how
And how much longer now
Am I awake?
I cannot stop listening to this song!

Hanson - Penny and Me

Cigars in the summertime under the sky by the light
I can feel you read my mind
I can see it in your eyes
Under the moon as it plays
like music every line
There's a rug with bleeding dye under the fan in the room
Where the passion's burning high
By the chair with the leopard skin under the light
It's always Penny and me tonight (Sayin' OhOh MmM, Yeah)

On the plane step up with both my feet
Riding in seat number 3 on a flight to NYC
Got my bean in a coffee cup next to my seat
Catch the view and another good book to read
Sending me home on the friendly skies
Missin' her eyes
It's always Penny and me tonight

'Cause Penny and Me like to roll the windows down
Turn the radio up, push the pedal to the ground
And Penny and Me like to gaze at starry skies
Close our eyes, pretend to fly
It's always Penny and me tonight (Say OhOh NoNoNo)

Staring at a million city lights
But it's still Penny and I all alone beneath the sky
Feel the wind brushing slowly by
If I could soar I would try, to take these wings and fly
Away to where the leaves turn red
But no matter where I am instead
Singin' along to feeling alright
We'll make it by in the pink moonlight
It's always Penny and me tonight

'Cause Penny and Me like to roll the windows down
Turn the radio up, push the pedal to the ground
And Penny and Me like to gaze at starry skies
Close our eyes, pretend to fly (Say OhOh)
close our eyes pretend to fly
It's always Penny and me tonight

Penny likes to get away
And drown her pain in lemonade
Penny dreams of rainy days
And nights up late by the fireplace
And aimless conversations 'bout the better days


(MmMmMmMm)

Singin' along to feeling alright, yeah
We're makin' it by in the pink moonlight
It's always Penny and me tonight

'Cause Penny and Me like to roll the windows down
Turn the radio up, push the pedal to the ground
And Penny and Me like to gaze at starry skies
Close our eyes pretend to fly
It's always Penny and me tonight (Say OhOh)

Penny and me tonight
Penny and me tonight
Just Penny and me tonight


I could slip, I could fall
Down that mean and awful hall
With the other jealous bitches
And the bitter grumbling men

I could sneer, I could glare
Say that life is so unfair
And the one who made it, made it
'Cuz her breasts were really big

Well I don't wanna get bitter
I don't wanna get cruel
I don't wanna get old before I have to

I could bitch, I could moan
Say I want to be left alone
But that's not really true
Because I like my time with you

Till you rant and you rave
Wishing fat folks to their grave
But I feel sorry for them
You say they get what they deserve

Well I don't wanna get bitter
I don't wanna get cruel
I don't wanna get old before I have to

I don't wanna get jaded
Petrified and weighted
I don't wanna get bitter like you
Like you, with the darts in your eyes
Like you, with disdain for mankind
I was charmed, now I wonder

Well I don't wanna get bitter
I don't wanna get cruel
I don't wanna get old before I have to

So I'll smile with the rest
I'll wish everyone the best
And know the one who made it
Made it 'cuz she was actually pretty good

Well I don't wanna get bitter
I don't wanna get cruel
I don't wanna get old before I have to
I've been listening to this song a lot lately. It resonates.


Dala - 20 Something


He's got life that comes and goes
He calls me up when he's down
What he'll be no one knows

She might love, but she never meets
Try to catch her in the eye,
But she's staring at her feet

We're 20 something
With nothing to lose
And we like what we say
But not what we do
And we live in a crowd
And it's breaking my heart
We're 20 something
Worlds apart

He looks through his glass
It's never full enough
He could light up this room
But he's so tired of acting tough

She can't draw the line
She goes in circles again
All the things she could be
If she weren't so set on being thin

We're 20 something
With nothing to lose
And we like what we say
But not what we do
And we live in a crowd
And it's breaking my heart
We're 20 something
Worlds apart

These are everlasting glory days
Young or old, we'll always feel this way
These are everlasting glory days
Young or old, we'll always feel this way
Young or old, we'll always feel this way

We're 20 something
With nothing to lose
And we like what we say
But not what we do
And we live in a crowd
And it's breaking my heart
We're 20 something
Worlds apart
Lyrical Mondays! Where I post lyrics because I want to!

I was deciding between a few songs, but then I had five Monkees songs come up on shuffle today, so that decided it.

Take a Giant Step by the Monkees

Though you've played at love and lost
And sorrow's turned your heart to frost
I will melt your heart again.
Remember the feeling as a child
When you woke up and morning smiled
It's time you felt like you did then.
There's just no percentage in remembering the past
It's time you learned to live again at last.

Come with me, leave yesterday behind
And take a giant step outside your mind.

You stare at me in disbelief
You say for you there's no relief
But I swear I'll prove you wrong.
Don't stay in your lonely room
Just staring back in silent gloom.
That's not where you belong
Come with me I'll take you where the tast of life is green
And everyday holds wonders to be seen.

Come with me, leave yesterday behind
And take a giant step outside your mind.
