Calling Out The disdain and betrayal in your eyes Reveals that they’ve surrounded you with their lies I know that they’ve no need for the truth That once you loved me and I loved you... Calling out to you to hold on Calling out to you to hold on Wait until the dawn, I will come Wait until the dawn, I will come Don’t let go, I will run Turn away in new-feigned disgust Have you forgotten what you told me in trust? Somehow you let others make up your mind I know that’s safer, but surely in time? Calling out to you to hold on Calling out to you to hold on Wait until the dawn, I will come Wait until the dawn, I will come I hope that someday that attitude Falls away like a mask and reveals you Don’t let them take you completely down In time you’ll be the one wearing the crown Calling out to you to hold on Calling out to you to hold on Wait until the dawn, I will come Wait until the dawn, I will come Don’t let go, I will run The disdain and betrayal in your eyes Reveals that they’ve surrounded you with their lies Don’t let go, I will run And that they’ve no need for the truth That once you loved me and I loved you

Feel a Man’s Alibi Waiting for you to pound on my door You’re too busy causing trouble All again across the neighborhood And I feel totally annoyed and ignored You’re late again for our date I’ve had enough now I’m not waiting no more I’m going down to Club Underground Gonna dance right up to an emo boy Gonna meet me a gorgeous Part Time Punk Gonna tell him my name is Pussy Galore! If you ever turn up at my place I’ll kindly let you know “This is not for me” Then I will slam the door fast on your face Don’t stand too close, my dog is up for the chase I’m going down to Laguna shore Gonna put my cutest bikini on Gonna ride the big waves on my body board Gonna catch myself a hot surfer boy Now it’s just past 10 o’clock And you decide to never show up I feel so dumb I didn’t get up and walk My pining for you has got to stop I’m now driving to Hollywood With my girls in back, we’re gonna hit the clubs Ready for martini’s, we choose a burlesque Hot in our booth, you come out dancing in ... BREASTS What the hell is this? You stood me up because you drag strip? You couldn’t even call me? I waited up all night in my 5-inch heels … and you’re wearing 7! Am I not woman enough for you? Are you fucking kidding me?

Wait for the Song, Friends I’ll miss Sunday brunch ... the special dates we had All the good advice ... shared over vegan rice With me gone now… Seen a lot, stayed fond Of you and grew fond of them Somehow now a strange lesson The game has become too much for the both of us… To you they have won I’ll miss Sunday brunch ... the special dates we had All the good advice ... shared over vegan rice With me gone now… You’ve realized that, it’s become a turf war Holding secrets from you no more You’re friends became so desperate Fantasies running in their heads Information they thought I had Expecting I’d give every weekend I’ll miss Sunday brunch ... the special dates we had All the good advice ... shared over vegan rice With me gone now… Some people move on Some grow old together Never imagined you gone The game has become too much And to you they have won And now you have gone… And now you have gone… And now you have gone…

Daybreak 02:51
Daybreak Found three photos of her under our bed last night do I say anything to you or just smile … as you come Home I mean it I love you… I’ll go with you come with me leave your dreams… If you promise I’ll care for you don’t worry… be my baby tie yourself to me come with me… Found a note on your desk wasn’t your mum or sister don’t want to be that paranoid girlfriend on tv late at night Home I mean it I love you… I’ll go with you come with me leave your dreams… Found two shot glasses on our countertop you know I don’t drink whiskey with my wine … late at night Home I mean it I love you… I’ll go with you come with me leave your dreams… Home I mean it I love you… I’ll go with you come with me

Ice Breaker - Meeooww Watch out here I come Never going back where I started from All those men were a sham How ‘bout you take my hand? Don’t listen to the drama I make myself out to be I’m just seein’ if you can Handle me But if you don’t think you can handle me Go ahead Walk out now There’s the exit door you see Watch out here I come Never going back where I started from Caught you lookin’ my way Telling you to go but I wish you’d stay Yeah, sometimes I mean it Like when I tell the creeps to scram I’m not gonna be a fetish As I expect you to be a Man But if you don’t think you can handle me Go ahead Try to run The door is locked… I have the key Watch out here I am No one thought I’d make it but here I stand The former four-eyed geek She’s the beauty queen of all the scene There’s no use resisting My endless feminine charm The best advice I can give you Is to relax those handcuffed arms If you still don’t think you can handle me Go ahead and try to run The cuffs are locked … And I have the key
