She never got to take advantage
Of her right to take him for granted
‘Cause her daddy up and vanished
before she had a chance to demand it
Now this fallen angel is older
But still wants her daddy to hold her
Like the fool that’ll take her chances
On wings as weak as his shoulders

-Refrain-
Though he wasn’t worthy
Of being taken for granted
By a silly girl’s demands, he left her clamoring – empty handed
Groping at – the promise that – every girl deserves a dad
That’ll break his back - so she ain’t gon’ lack
Anything an angel has….
Now she can’t stand him
‘Cause she knows she would take him back -
give him a million more last chances

She’s in the mirror all day long
Searching for something made wrong
Puts a ton of makeup on
Just to hide the face he didn’t want
But you can’t erase who you are
She can see him still through her scars
Hear him alone in the dark
Sharing the beat of her heart

-Refrain- … But he wasn’t worthy
Of being taken for granted
By a silly girl’s demands, he left her clamoring – empty handed
Groping at – the promise that – even she deserved a dad
That wouldbreak his back - so she ain’t gon’ lack
Anything an angel has….
Now she can’t stand him
‘Cause she knows she would take him back -
give him a million more last chances

Yea!!! She’ll jump at a million more chances
At the risk of another hard landing
In the hopes that he will be standing
Where he can catch her in his hands, then…
He’s gonna put her in a song
A place she’s made to belong
Like a tattoo on his tongue
She’s gonna hear her name before long

-Alt. Refrain-
‘Cause she is worthy
to take him for granted
though her demands are expressed – in temper tantrums –
they are commandments
that he wouldn’t break, if it breaks his back
just to make her glad that she raised her dad…
with that one in a million last chances…

Last Chances

I know about
Your hiding place
You’re so loud
I’m wide awake
But I don’t rouse
You from your dreams
‘Cause you’re honest when you’re talking in your sleep

Your secret
Is tucked away
In the deep end
Of what you don’t say
But when you’re sleepin’
I eavesdrop, ‘cause your lips unlock, and tell on your body
Baby…

-Refrain-
Why are you
Ashamed to let me know what you desire to do?
Don’t think you gotta hide between those lines you use
Don’t underestimate me
You should know I’m just as crazy
Maybe
I’d approve
Of anything your twisted little mind should choose
So stop me wasting all this time just finding clues
I’m just as disappointed
It’s as pointless as if I’m not satisfying you

You’re never naked
When you’re in the nude
You just fake it
When I’m in the mood
Just a shape that
I thought was you
Until your hide-out was turned upside-down

You’re not an angel
I found your horns
‘neath your halo
it’s not the norm
so you lay low
with your crown of thorns
honey, you don’t have to hide ‘em anymore

(Refrain)

Like gift wrap
You’re just a surface
I can’t scratch
To know you for certain
‘til you crash
and slur your words
on a truth serum from another world

Your diary
Leaks in bits and pieces
While you hide from me
I don’t need to see it
You’re reciting things
I would not believe unless you somehow found your way into
My wildest dreams
Like you sleepwalked
Into my privacy
Where we talked
So honey why don’t we
Take our masks off
‘cause we only scare each other in the dark

-Alternate Refrain-
Why are we
Afraid to show and tell what both our bodies need
We disappoint ourselves with our dishonesty
We’re underestimated
When we’re in our hiding places
Baby,
I could be
The missing piece your puzzled mind was tryin’ to seek
But groping in the dark you couldn’t find me
You’re just as disappointed
It’s as pointless as if we should close our eyes to see

See-through Eyelids

You never wear your buttons on your sleeve I’m only touching you reluctantly
I don’t know how you’ll react
Will a button push me back?
It’s only makeup that I really see

I pulled a chair up to the window seat
But window dressing’s all you show to me
Likee an armor-coated badge
Your wear a bandage made of scabs
To hide your vulnerabilities

-Refrain-
You showed me, you’ve shown me
Every smile is made of teeth
And hell is only six feet deep
You showed me, you’re showing me
That making love is make-believe
And hell is only six feet deep

I’m barely brushing up against you
Afraid of painting you black and blue
All I do is shift my weight
And I can feel your body brace
As if I’ll open up an old wound

So we’ll pretend as if I know you
As you pretend you’d never been abused Like artificial sweetener
I’ll be all that you prefer
As we share a piece of plastic fruit

(Refrain)

I know you blew your candles out for me
As if there’s some possibility
That the whisper you withheld
Is the breath that you exhaled
But wishing wells are six feet deep

Yeah! You’re drawing chalk outlines on the street...
...and your shadow fills them perfectly

(Refrain)

You no longer play
With the pieces of my broken heart
They’re not big enough to hold a scar to sew these shards together
Tomorrow’s looking so much better
I…am so shattered I can’t contain
That generous supply of pain
You inflict so you can borrow,
a drop of someone else’s sorrow

-Refrain-
You wouldn’t know empathy
Unless you borrow someone else’s pain
And the cuts that emptied me
Were just love by another name
Well, I’ve indulged your need
Just so you could pity me
But now that your heart begins to ache
I can no longer feel a thing

All of a sudden,
You’re groping at a stranger
As I’m slipping through your fingers
Like powder passing through an hourglass
Nostalgia cannot linger long before
The hours pass over our past
And I’m buried ‘neath the ashes of my corpse
Tomorrow’s looking so much better
‘Cause you can never hurt me anymore

(Refrain)

I can’t share your pain
‘Cause death is a padded room
I couldn’t hurt if I wanted to
I can’t feel sorry for you
You no longer play
With the pieces of my broken heart
They’re not big enough to hold a scar to sew these shards together Tomorrow’s looking so much better
I…am so shattered I can’t contain
That generous supply of pain
You inflict so you can borrow, a drop of someone else’s sorrow
-Refrain
You wouldn’t know empathy
Unless you borrow someone else’s pain
And the cuts that emptied me

‘Cause you can never hurt me anymore
(Refrain)
I can’t share your pain
‘Cause death is a padded room
I couldn’t hurt if I wanted to
I can’t feel sorry for you
You’re hardly worth the karma you sustain
‘Cause I’ve indulged your need so you would pity me
and the cuts that emptied me stole my empathy
But I’m starving from the grave For a touch of humanity Could I borrow a little pain ‘Cause I can’t feel a thing
You’re hardly worth the karma you sustain

'Cause I’ve indulged your need
so you would pity me
and the cuts that emptied me
stole my empathy
But I’m starving from the grave
For a touch of humanity
Could I borrow a little pain
‘Cause I can’t feel a thing...

Borrowing Pain

Mademoiselle
You got me speechless
But I can spell
Just read my lips
It’s written in braille
So it’ll take finesse
To kiss and tell
What I can’t express

You got me like whoa! I don’t know if I can come to grips
With a sugar-coated dose of your electric lips
Like I’ve never been kissed
I’ll need an exorcist
To get this fetish off my lips so I can catch my breath
Resurrect my self-respect from the kiss of death
But my lips are drenched
With her succulence

(Rap)I’m addicted to a habit - that I cannot kick
I’m connected to her lips - like an I.V. drip, drip,
Dripping with a drug - with a punch in the gut - that’s got me sucking up - with puppy love - electrified and puckered up -
A suction cup - stuck - to an arc of a spark plug
Charged up - star-struck - addicted to the hard stuff
I let my guard drop - and now she’s opening my heart up - Took me off the market, now I’m choking on her stardust

-Refrain-
She got that je ne sais quoi…that eludes defining
She’s the cat got my tongue, and her grip is tightening
Like a thunderbolt of Thor in the hand of Aphrodite
My tongue is pierced by a fork of lightning

You got me like whoa! I’m impaled with a coffin nail
Like an offering devoted on your altar rail
Try to talk, but fail
Like it’s carved in braille
You be wearing me like lipstick on Cupid’s bow
Under mistletoes discovering the mood is prone
To remove these clothes
Making room to grow

(Rap)You turn a warm-blooded man - into a hot-blooded mess - Like a pyromaniac - built a fire in my chest
A tongue of fire hides in a honeysuckle’s depth----that is Dripping with nectar, like a dose of Triple Sec
On the corners of your mouth - flank an aphrodisiac
Packing heat - so intense - you kindle fevers on a thermostat
I’m certain that you hit the afterburners after learning that we’re sure to crash, in fact we’re at the point of no returning back

(Refrain)

She’s a nuclear reactor, lips are crackling with static - I got plastered to the rafters when I licked her candy wrapper
She’s packing girl power in a little atom smasher
All that ever mattered to me just became antimatter

She’s confetti raining on me when the skies are crying
A little taste of resurrection while the whole world’s dying
I don’t know if she’s a goddess, but she damn well might be
‘Cause her lips are divine and her tongue is almighty

(Refrain)

Speechless

I used to get you hot & bothered
My body heat would light your fuse
Got you hot under the collar
It didn’t take much to put you in the mood
I could burn up your thermometer
Everything I touched I set fire to
But now I’m turning you off
Your fever dropped
I guess NOW you’re fireproof

I used to be sunshine
No one could hold a candle to
You said when I walked by
I used to brighten up a room
I used to be so hot
You used to melt when I touched you
But my temperature dropped
Whenever you stopped
Exaggerating truth

-Refrain-
When did you become so boring?
When did you stop falling for me?
You used to be so corny
But somewhere you began maturing
The bedroom was our gallery
Used to burn it to the ground with me
But now - we can't burn one damn calorie
You used to say I shined with glory
But I’m a pile of ashes in your crematory…. now

You were a pyromaniac
Who used to press his luck
Playing with a fire that
You could never snuff
You said you’d risk a fiery death
‘Cause you did it all for love
We may be a little older
But I still smoulder
And I still call your bluff

Used to get so overheated
Steam the windows up in your pick-up truck
You used to sit & tease me
That I had lava running in my blood
Said I could give a snowman a fever
You used to fan the flames, you couldn’t get enough
Used to make me believe
We could make-believe
I was made of all that stuff

(Refrain)

You used to lie to me
When you still tried to lure me
You said my body heat
Was the cause of global warming
Well, your fairy tales, they got to me
I bought your cheesy stories
Now I’m standing right here
In something sheer
And somehow you ignore me

(Refrain)

When did you stop stretching truth
Just to get me into bed with you?
When did you stop…
When did you stop…
When did you stop slaying dragons for me?

(Refrain)

When Did You Stop?

Yo, I’m preoccupied - all the time - locking eyes with a cockatrice
Bottom line - I’m bona fide – lobotomized & zombified - I can’t mollify medusa - use a
Lullaby - to induce a snooze,
There’s nothing I - can do to loose the ruse seducing my almond eyes -
I personify the loser - who’s an automaton-
To amuse her, true - I’m crossing I’s and dotting T’s -
But I watch my P’s and Q’s though -
Don’t tell me that beauty is skin deep,
You don’t speak for me - I’m in deep -
She wears sugar on her sleeve - like Lindsey -
Plated with Sterling on a strip tease
In a frenzy when she sensed me tensing
Tempts me to take a window seat -
I’ve seen what’s unseen underneath
And I’m pleased to feed her hunger games
..Like an underling…
Head over heels like a tumbleweed

-Refrain-
I should’ve knew – what I shouldn’t do
Should’ve, would’ve, but I couldn’t look upon that sugar-coated sugar cube
And refuse – to abuse
The drug that’s tugging on my tongue and fxxxing stomach
I’m in love with you ooh ooh ooh
Bought a ring, thought I oughtta fall upon your altar & get caught into
Your test tube, extrude – the best to impress you..

The best of me - on a quest to be
That pedigree blessed with special needs
Breastfeed on a wet dream, throw confetti on your bedding
Take an ejection seat, to ecstasy
On a jet stream, set you next to me
Investigate your pressure plate & detonate your expectations
Shocked - by my lightning rod
I got your body piping hot
You’re not gonna pry me off
I think it’s time to tie the knot
Plop! Now my mic just dropped
God, I got that writer’s block
La di da, blah blah blah
She got me speaking poppycock
I should’ve knew your pay-per-view
Shook your sugar shaker too
I’m paying dues I could refuse
If I’da never laid with you
I’m begging you to cook my bacon
Shook and hooked upon your bait and
Waiting for your pocket knife
to occupy your dinner plate, whooo!

(Refrain)….in love with you and me… in reverie
reveling in devilry like devils in their levity
you and me… weak knees
set you on a pedestal and let you go ahead of me

The head of me is heavily, tethered to her meddling
Unsettling my fettle like she’s peddling amphetamines
A better me would never be indebted to a wedding ring
Instead of me pathetically attached to her identity

Catnip to her kitten, battered pussycat is smitten
Had it comin’ to her thinking she could chew what she had bitten
But itn’t it a paradox, she’s flippin’ it and squaring off -
Didn’t think she’d take it, but she raised the bid and scared me off
Ooh, ooh, ooh
But where could I be spared if ev’rywhere she’s there to share my mind - it’s scary God!
Ooh, ooh, ooh
I swear I barely popped a squat before she had me tearing off her terry cloth
-mmmm
and now she got us pairing off
(Refrain) -get caught up in you

If Looks Could Kill

Imagine someone who
Can’t imagine you
Having not a clue
That fairytales are true
I cannot believe
That you cannot believe
You never took a chance on me
What do you have to lose
I’m Cinderella’s shoe
Sleeping beauty’s dream come true
Midnight rendezvous
Pixie dust and witch's brew
I’m forbidden fruit
Your daddy says my screws are loose
But look in your rearview
Im happy ever after you

I could make your dreams
Spread their wings
Give breath to fantasies
Never breathed
I cannot believe
That you make-believe
that nothing is reality
Could sweep you off your feet
I’m the witch’s broom
I’m the wings you never grew
I’m your birds-eye view
The honeybee’s honeymoon
I am devil’s food
Your conscience tells you I’m taboo
But I am your breakthrough
Im happy ever after you
Imagine me
Imagining
But you’re too good for me
You’re way out of my league...
You are heaven’s hue
You are everything that’s true
A Sunday afternoon
A Sunday dress on Sunday’s pew
God may not approve
But I’m not easily subdued
I’m the follow-through
I’m happy ever after you

Imagine me
Imagining
A world where dreams come true
What do I have to lose?
You’re beauty, I’m the beast
Your frightened just as much me
But both of us have dreams
& I believe I could be
Cinderella’s shoe
The strike of midnight rendezvous
Having no curfew
Happy ever after you
“After you
Let me hold the door for you”
“After you
Princess this is your debut”
“After you
A dream where worlds come true”
“After you”

Happy Ever After

Like powder passing through an hourglass
Nostalgia cannot linger long before
The hours pass over our past
And I’m buried ‘neath the ashes of my corpse
Tomorrow’s looking so much better
‘Cause you can never hurt me anymore
(Refrain)
I can’t share your pain
‘Cause death is a padded room
I couldn’t hurt if I wanted to
I can’t feel sorry for you
You’re hardly worth the karma you sustain
‘Cause I’ve indulged your need so you would pity me
and the cuts that emptied me stole my empathy
But I’m starving from the grave For a touch of humanity Could I borrow a little pain ‘Cause I can’t feel a thing
You’re hardly worth the karma you sustain

'Cause I’ve indulged your need
so you would pity me
and the cuts that emptied me
stole my empathy
But I’m starving from the grave
For a touch of humanity
Could I borrow a little pain
‘Cause I can’t feel a thing...

Borrowing Pain

Mademoiselle
You got me speechless
But I can spell
Just read my lips
It’s written in braille
So it’ll take finesse
To kiss and tell
What I can’t express

You got me like whoa! I don’t know if I can come to grips
With a sugar-coated dose of your electric lips
Like I’ve never been kissed
I’ll need an exorcist
To get this fetish off my lips so I can catch my breath
Resurrect my self-respect from the kiss of death
But my lips are drenched
With her succulence

(Rap)I’m addicted to a habit - that I cannot kick
I’m connected to her lips - like an I.V. drip, drip,
Dripping with a drug - with a punch in the gut - that’s got me sucking up - with puppy love - electrified and puckered up -
A suction cup - stuck - to an arc of a spark plug
Charged up - star-struck - addicted to the hard stuff
I let my guard drop - and now she’s opening my heart up - Took me off the market, now I’m choking on her stardust

-Refrain-
She got that je ne sais quoi…that eludes defining
She’s the cat got my tongue, and her grip is tightening
Like a thunderbolt of Thor in the hand of Aphrodite
My tongue is pierced by a fork of lightning

You got me like whoa! I’m impaled with a coffin nail
Like an offering devoted on your altar rail
Try to talk, but fail
Like it’s carved in braille
You be wearing me like lipstick on Cupid’s bow
Under mistletoes discovering the mood is prone
To remove these clothes
Making room to grow

(Rap)You turn a warm-blooded man - into a hot-blooded mess - Like a pyromaniac - built a fire in my chest
A tongue of fire hides in a honeysuckle’s depth----that is Dripping with nectar, like a dose of Triple Sec
On the corners of your mouth - flank an aphrodisiac
Packing heat - so intense - you kindle fevers on a thermostat
I’m certain that you hit the afterburners after learning that we’re sure to crash, in fact we’re at the point of no returning back

(Refrain)

She’s a nuclear reactor, lips are crackling with static - I got plastered to the rafters when I licked her candy wrapper
She’s packing girl power in a little atom smasher
All that ever mattered to me just became antimatter

She’s confetti raining on me when the skies are crying
A little taste of resurrection while the whole world’s dying
I don’t know if she’s a goddess, but she damn well might be
‘Cause her lips are divine and her tongue is almighty

(Refrain)

Speechless

I used to get you hot & bothered
My body heat would light your fuse
Got you hot under the collar
It didn’t take much to put you in the mood
I could burn up your thermometer
Everything I touched I set fire to
But now I’m turning you off
Your fever dropped
I guess NOW you’re fireproof

I used to be sunshine
No one could hold a candle to
You said when I walked by
I used to brighten up a room
I used to be so hot
You used to melt when I touched you
But my temperature dropped
Whenever you stopped
Exaggerating truth

-Refrain-
When did you become so boring?
When did you stop falling for me?
You used to be so corny
But somewhere you began maturing
The bedroom was our gallery
Used to burn it to the ground with me
But now - we can't burn one damn calorie
You used to say I shined with glory
But I’m a pile of ashes in your crematory…. now

You were a pyromaniac
Who used to press his luck
Playing with a fire that
You could never snuff
You said you’d risk a fiery death
‘Cause you did it all for love
We may be a little older
But I still smoulder
And I still call your bluff

Used to get so overheated
Steam the windows up in your pick-up truck
You used to sit & tease me
That I had lava running in my blood
Said I could give a snowman a fever
You used to fan the flames, you couldn’t get enough
Used to make me believe
We could make-believe
I was made of all that stuff

(Refrain)

You used to lie to me
When you still tried to lure me
You said my body heat
Was the cause of global warming
Well, your fairy tales, they got to me
I bought your cheesy stories
Now I’m standing right here
In something sheer
And somehow you ignore me

(Refrain)

When did you stop stretching truth
Just to get me into bed with you?
When did you stop…
When did you stop…
When did you stop slaying dragons for me?

(Refrain)

When Did You Stop?
