      Lyrics – Love and Other Struggles

      Little Spoon
      Won’t you be my little spoon / Let me keep you safe and warm
      Polish you make you shine / Let me hug you / from behind
      Let me love you / and ease your mind / Let me love you and ease your mind
      Won’t you be my Big spoon too / Be my everything, Be all and true
      Polish me Make me shine, shine, shine / Won’t you hug me / from behind
      Won’t you love me And ease my mind / Won’t you love me And ease my mind
      my mind / my mind / my mind / my mind / love me and easy my mind

      Qui Veut Dire Oui
      I might talk, such, a good game / Swear you are all, you’re all the same
      I’ll loudly refuse to be claimed / Won’t be played, can’t be tamed
      I’ll fight so hard not to let on / How fa-ar gone, I really am gone
      Pretend I’m so strong, so strong / I just don’t need anyone
      You’re bound to think, you’ll surely need / Some kind of rocket, just to reach
      That li-i-ttle part, inside of me / qui veut, dire oui, qui veut, dire oui
      When I just have to say hello / And you just have to tell me so
      So I-I can finally let you know / Je veut, dire oui, Je veut, dire oui

      The Easy Kind
      I don’t have any where to be / except where the sun can shine on me
      Somewhere the breeze can feel my skin / and I can soak it all in
      I ain’t gonna waste no more time / unless it’s the easy kind
      Nothing like a la-zy day / to chase all your tension away
      Get some perspective in your mind, in your mind / leave all that noise behind
      I ain’t gonna waste no more time / unless it’s the easy kind
      You don’t have any where to be / ‘cept for right here, next to me
      Sit back and let the sun, warm your skin, warm your skin / I’ll sit back and soak it all in
      I ain’t gonna waste no more time / Unless it’s the easy kind
      I ain’t gonna waste no more time / Unless it’s the easy kind

      Maybe You’re Amazed
      You wanna know what it’s gonna take to win me back / You want me to tell you what to do
      It’s time {it’s time} for you {for you} to {to} decide / What it is I, I mean to you
      You already know this ain’t no contest / You already know that you can’t lose.
      The only one you are fighting against is yourself / And one of you, better choose
      It’s time for you to figure out what you want / You need to be who I know you can be.
      You’re gonna have to learn to put me first / And then, and then, maybe
      Maybe you’re afraid at the way I love you all the time / Maybe you’re amazed at the way you love me
      Maybe you’re amazed / Maybe you’re amazed / Maybe you’re amazed
      At the way you love me / You love me

      How Soon Can You Leave?
      You keep on telling me How you’re too good, good for me / And how you are probably My best, last chance
      You keep on saying how If I don’t turn my act around / One of these days you just might Up and dance away
      I used to want to know What I had done to you / And what I had to do To make it right
      Well all I want to know now Deep in my soul now / Is how soon Can you leave
      I used to search for the key to make you finally love me / To make you happy Night after night after night
      But now I’ve come to realize, there’s nothing I can do that’s right / That would ever satisfy you cause you’re broken inside
      I used to want to know What I had done to you / And what I had to do To make it right
      Well all I want to know now Deep in my soul now / Is how soon Can you leave

      Did You Ever Do?
      Keep your hands where I can see them I got my eyes, on, the door
      Stop with how you love me now, I don’t want to hear that anymore
      I think I knew it all along I think, I thought, we fought
      For something real, n’now I’m sure You were just swinging for sport
      If I can see it, so can you, you just can’t stand to lose
      You don’t love me anymore And did you ever do?
      Here you go-oh-oh again, Here I go, there we go
      If I asked you what we’re fighting for would you, would you even know?
      Cause in the end it’s still the end, and so it is, just like you said
      You’ll bring out the worst in me, but I am way past that again
      If I can see it, so can you, you, you just can’t stand to lose
      You don’t love me anymore, and did you ever do?
      Please stop trying to convince me, convince me that we can work, this thing out
      You never worked a day with me at least not where it counts, this counts
      If I can see it, so can you, you, you, you just can’t stand to lose
      You don’t love me anymore, and did you ever do?
      And did you ever do?

      Another Lonely Sunday Night
      Street sounds start to quiet down Darkness wraps its arms round the city
      Another restless Sunday gives up On what might have been
      Weekend plans all fizzled out Or fell apart in my hands
      Can’t seem to get myself out the door I’m wasting days, and nights again
      (Another lonely Sunday night)
      Friends they try to talk me out Try to get me, ready to go
      To where the bright lights shine shine shine But I already know
      You won’t be there any more Than you’ll be here with me
      And I’m bad company even for myself So I guess it’s bound to be
      Another lonely Sunday night
      They seem to come on faster now Though I know it’s still once a week
      Somehow drag out longer too even with 24 hours to keep
      Friends they try to lift my spirits While I stay home and lift these
      I wish this weekend turned out different but again, it’s, bound, to be
      Another lonely Sunday night
      Another lonely Sunday night
      Yes it’s just another lonely Sunday night

      Better Days
      Sometimes I feel like I’ve been / Walking for miles but my
      Eden is getting no nearer no matter / how many hills I climb
      Sometimes I feel like I can’t / Get out of my way
      My words all desert me / When I finally have something to say
      Sometimes / it’s so hard / to believe in / better days
      Sometimes I feel like I am / Losing my life to what
      Others think about me / To what they believe is right
      Do you ever feel like / Just giving up
      laying down your arms and / Drinking from the cup
      Do you ever feel like / Just giving in
      and bathing yourself / In your favorite sin
      Sometimes / it’s so hard / to believe in / better days
      Let’s runaway / Let’s just run away / We can go today / Let’s just run away
      Sometimes / it’s so hard / to believe in / better days

      All In (The Game)
      Should you decide, should you decide, You’re ready to play the game
      Make sure you know the game-they’re playing-be-fore-you-go / All in
      All this talk about fixing things, All this promise of reform
      Before you take the lid off you should learn / What it was really truly for
      People try to make it anyway they can / I won’t apologize for them
      But did you ever ask yourself / Why some start so far ahead
      Some citizens just don’t understand / What is wrong in this land
      Keep on praising our FREEDOM / With so many poor people in prison
      Some say the lucky ones get out young / Didn’t end up on the wrong side of a gun
      (I say) I say the lucky ones / Earn their place by being born
      Should you decide, should you decide, should you decide, you’re ready to play the game
      Make sure you know the game they’re playing before you go / All in
      Make sure you know, make sure you know
      Make sure you know, make sure you know
      Make sure you know, the game they’re playing, before you go
      All in

      Mother of Exiles
      Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
      Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed, to me

      Outside it’s cold and gray / People don’t get in my way
      The margins are wide enough, to hide all of us
      Who don’t belong in the light of day / Who look like they started from far away
      Who were born and raised without a break, and bruised ever since
           Sometimes I think I’ll get to go there
           Sometimes I think I’ll find someone to care
      Inside shines like a dream / Of freedom and time to breathe, of safety
      Ways, and means, and justice indivisible
      Sometimes I think I’ll get to go there
      Sometimes I think I’ll find someone to care
      But I’m not like them so they shun me / And hearts get hard so easily
      When you’re afraid you’re losing your great dream
      Round and round for a hundred years / Politicians trade on fears
      While the Mother of Exiles slowly disappears
      And with her all those streets of gold / And all the dreams our heart could hold
      And all the promise of this promised land
      Oh how I wish I could go there
      How I wish I had someone to care

      Elegy
      My love is a fair, strong, honest man / Who stands for what is good and right
      A gentle soul, a gentleman / Not one to pick, or back down from a fight
      My love was a fair, strong, honest man / Who stood for what is good and right
      Till a soldier in blue pulled a gun on him / And shot him in the back last night
      He didn’t have the choice to walk away. / Or the power to calm all the fright
      Somewhere else they would have both breathed another day / Fear conquered without taking a life
      Now I sit and rage at the ways of the world / And I stand and march in the streets
      With my head held high and my hands held higher / Lest they make a martyr of me
      Listen to all our stories now / Against 400 hundred years of lies
      Count the villains in all your tales / And tell me the fear isn’t by design
      They blamed him for the sins of his past / Blamed fear, and darkness of night
      I pity the one who shot my man down / Can you blame the pen for the words it writes?
      He didn’t have the choice to walk away / Or the power to calm all the fright
      Somewhere else they would have both lived another day / Fear conquered without taking a life

      Rise (Oh My City)
      Walking down these dark city streets / Too early for early and too late for late
      The corners are empty under starless skies / And that old moon won’t even show her face
      The busses beep, the taxis elbow and curse / They’re all jostling to get to that red light first
      Me I just want back to bed and back to black / And that makes it, and that makes it all, all the worse
      Oh my city, it’s time for you to rise / Rub your eyes and stretch out in the light
      The city takes its toll in nickels and dimes / Those who can’t pay the fare, you know you pay the fines
      The less you have the less you shall receive / don’t you know it shouldn’t be that way, but
      Still you see it, still you see it all, all the time
      Oh my city, it’s time for you to rise / Rub your eyes and stretch out in the light
      The sky fades from black to dirty gray / Another downtown dinosaur has lost his way
      He lumbers along the Ave looking for scraps / Then belches and rumbles on his way
      Oh my city, it’s time for you to rise / Rub your eyes and stretch out in the light
      Oh why do you tell me these lies / Selling right for wrong and wrong for right

      Private Battles
      Be kind to the, people you meet
      Cause they all got their own, private battles
      All kinds of things that rattle around and keep them awake / At night

      Lend a hand when-ever you can
      For someone you don’t know
      Cause when nobody knows you, that’s when you need it / The most

      Work to keep an, open mind
      Even when you know you’re right
      If it’s not hurting you, let them believe / What they want

      Try not to try to control
      What other people they do and they don’t
      Live and let live, and let live and live /  And live

      Keep the ones you, love in your heart
      And make sure to let them know their part
      Take every chance, every chance to tell them how grateful / you are

      Be sweet to the people you meet
      Cause we all got our own, private battles
      All kinds of things that rattle around and keep us awake / At night
      Good night

      Hush
      Hush little baby, don’t you cry, don’t you cry
      Sometimes you fall, and sometimes you fly
      And if you fly too close, too close to the sun
      Well at least you made yourself some fun

      Hush little baby don’t say a word
      Shout it out loud and make sure you’re heard
      When you see something you know is just not right, in this world
      Stand up and say so with all your might girl

      And if you lose your voice shouting from that line
      Mama’s gonna teach you how to make a great, big, sign
      And if you’re afraid to stand up because of your size
      Mamas going to show you how to organize

      And if you’re afraid, you’re afraid, afraid / because of your size
      Mamas going to show you how to organize

      don't miss a thing
