A child’s face with a new toy
A girl flirting with a boy
A mother animated with her daughter
Sunlight on water

It makes me happy yeah
It makes me happy yeah
It makes me happy yeah
Yeah it makes me smile

Music that makes me want to dance
A boyfriend into romance
Rainbow clouds around the moon
Good words with a great tune

Loving couples holding hands
Crashing waves on yellow sands
Daydreams of far off places
Cheerful people with smiling faces

You’re a strong kind person with a gift for making me feel so small
And I do my best not to show you that you’ve hurt me at all
I listen to your stories and support you just anyway I can
But sometimes this thought slips out and overides my love for my man

What about me – what about me – and I can’t help it sometimes
Saying what about me

You’re a good sweet child and you love me I know this is true
And I swear I’d go to the ends of the earth if I thought it would help you
I’m not complaining, I love you and all your funny little ways
But sometimes this little voice talks to me when I’m having one of my off days

What about me – what about me – and I can’t help it sometimes
Saying what about me – what about me

What about me – what about me – and I can’t help it sometimes
Saying what about me – yeah what about me
What about me

I want to be with you today
Wanna hang on every word you say
I’ll be happier this afternoon
If I can be with you

I like to see a smile light up your face
I want to see you happy every place
My heart won’t be singing out of tune
If I can be with you

It doesn’t matter to me that it’s a rainy day
It doesn’t matter to me I’ll be happy anyway

I want to run my fingers through your hair
I want to tell everyone that you’ll be there
Love will fill the air like sweet perfume
If I can be with you

Whilst walking in the rain I can see your face
Whilst walking in the wind I can hear your name
It doesn’t matter what I do
My thoughts always return to you

Whilst walking in the sun I feel can your kiss
Whoever thought that missing you could be like this
It doesn’t matter what I do
My thoughts always return to you

Oh what a crying shame
No more of our silly games
Cold Hard Heartbreak

Whilst walking in the street I can hear our song
Never thought getting over you would take so long
It doesn’t matter what I do
My thoughts always return to you

Whilst walking in the town I can hear your laugh
I didn’t think that you’d be taking such a different path
It doesn’t matter what I do
My thoughts always return to you
return to you
return to you
return to you

I have a memory of your face
I keep it in a secret place
Where I’m guilty
Of heartbreak

No sleep
Promise broken
Yours to keep
Words softly spoken

It’s too late cos the hurt is done
Might as well have shot you with my gun
Cos I’m guilty
Of heartbreak

No sleep
Promise broken
Yours to keep
Words softly spoken

A hurt animal goes to ground
I’ve searched for you but you just won’t be found
Cos I’m guilty
Of heartbreak

No sleep
Promise broken
Yours to keep
Words softly spoken

I have a memory of your face
I keep it in a secret place
Where I’m guilty
Of heartbreak

No sleep
Promise broken
Yours to keep
Words softly spoken

It’s too late cos the hurt is done
Might as well have shot you with my gun
Cos I’m guilty
Of heartbreak

No sleep
Promise broken
Yours to keep
Words softly spoken

A hurt animal goes to ground
I’ve searched for you but you just won’t be found
Cos I’m guilty
Of heartbreak

No sleep
Promise broken
Yours to keep
Words softly spoken

I don’t want to talk about it
How my day went yesterday
I don’t want to talk about it
Sometimes I don’t know what to say
And I had to tell you something
But I don’t know what it was
It can’t have been so important
And I tend to forget it all because

I got to tell you that I can’t wait ‘til Friday
I want to tell you that I can’t wait ‘til Friday
Roll on Friday

I don’t want to talk about it
How I took the kids off to school
I don’t want to talk about it
How my neighbour made me look a fool
And every day is boring
It turns out just the same
It’s hard to be someone special
Doing washing up again – Heigh ho

I want to tell you that I can’t wait ‘til Friday
I got to tell you that I can’t wait ‘til Friday
Roll on Friday

I don’t want to talk about it
What I think about in my teabreaks
I don’t want to talk about it
Cos when I think of you my heart aches
I’m sure it won’t be so long
Till I see you again
I guess I’ll muddle through it somehow
I’ll just keep phoning you ‘till then

I got to tell you that I can’t wait ‘til Friday
I want to tell you that I can’t wait ‘til Friday
Roll on Friday
Roll on Friday
Roll on Friday

I don’t want to talk about it
How my day went yesterday
I don’t want to talk about it
Sometimes I don’t know what to say
And I had to tell you something
But I don’t know what it was
It can’t have been so important
And I tend to forget it all because

I got to tell you that I can’t wait ‘til Friday
I want to tell you that I can’t wait ‘til Friday
Roll on Friday

I don’t want to talk about it
How I took the kids off to school
I don’t want to talk about it
How my neighbour made me look a fool
And every day is boring
It turns out just the same
It’s hard to be someone special
Doing washing up again – Heigh ho

I want to tell you that I can’t wait ‘til Friday
I got to tell you that I can’t wait ‘til Friday
Roll on Friday

I don’t want to talk about it
What I think about in my teabreaks
I don’t want to talk about it
Cos when I think of you my heart aches
I’m sure it won’t be so long
Till I see you again
I guess I’ll muddle through it somehow
I’ll just keep phoning you ‘till then

I got to tell you that I can’t wait ‘til Friday
I want to tell you that I can’t wait ‘til Friday
Roll on Friday
Roll on Friday
Roll on Friday

If you see me out with anyone
Doesn’t mean I’m planning any fun
If you see me laughing in the sun
Doesn’t mean something has just begun

Truly, I’m only yours truly
I’m only yours

If you see me dancing in the night
Doesn’t mean I’ve found someone else who’s right
If you see me laughing and holding hands
Doesn’t mean I’m changing any plans

I’m only trying to fill my time
Cos you have trouble making up your mind
You’re always busy and you’re not free
So where does that leave me?
If you see me out with anyone
Doesn’t mean I’m having any fun
If you see me laughing and holding hands
Doesn’t mean I’ve found another man

If you see me and I don’t see you
And I look like I’m having fun without you
If you see me like this don’t be afraid
Don’t you worry sir you’ve got it made

She wakes in the night
Eyes wide open without sight
She dresses in red
Silk robes that she laid on the bed
She goes to the moon
In her head there plays a strange tune
And as the notes get higher
She dances like fire

She swoops she writhes
She gyrates and turns
She stoops she dives
She gyrates and twirls
She can’t stop
She has no chance She’s taken over by the dance
And as the notes get higher
She dances like fire

He sees her from his room
She’s silhouetted against the moon
He watches – he hears no sound
He wonders what he’s found
And as the moon gets higher
He burns with desire

He finds her – he thinks by chance
They come together and they dance
The village comes to watch the sight
Two people dancing through the night

They light at suns first fire
Sacrificial fire

You asked me if I ever did
You ask as if you never knew that I do
You should know that I do
You know I used to play around
But that was long before I found there was you
I was waiting for you

I don’t know why you’re always asking me to tell you more
I never gave you any reason to doubt me before

I don’t know what you’re trying to say
You ask me where I was yesterday
But you knew
I was sure that you knew
What can I say in my defense
A friend saw me out with someone else
It’s not true
I couldn’t do that to you

I don’t know why you’re always asking me to tell you more
I never gave you any reason to doubt me before

I’m not untrustworthy, unreliable
Your guilt is beginning to show
Untrustworthy, unreliable
Maybe its you whose found someone new

I woke up this morning, Hair down in my eyes
Looked out at the sun It was a nasty surprise
Felt bad vibrations, murder in my brain
I felt so bad I wanted to cause somebody pain
I wanted to kill someone I wanted to start a fight
I wanted to throw something with all my might

I woke up this morning, the wrong side of the bed
Thoughts of violence were running round my head
I searched around for something that would answer to the call
I picked up a glass ashtray and I threw it at the wall
Well that was so unusual it didn’t sound like me
What could it have been I think it was PMT

Well get out of my way ‘cos I’m not the girl you knew
Its really weird I don’t even know what I’m gonna do
Unpredictable and angry is the way I feel right now
Don’t do anything nice today or you’re going to start a row
I find it hard to concentrate I find it hard to speak
I thank the lord above its only for a week

I think about you more than you know
But I find it hard to tell you so
I often wonder why that should be
There’s a doubt in my mind how you think of me

‘Cos you.. you are so English
A gentleman
And you… you treat me like lady should be treated
And I like it

The wind in my hair the sea in my eyes
And you by my side what a surprise
And part of me wants to cave in
Too late to hold back
I’ve fallen in

My spirit flies to dance by the sea
And I follow in our footsteps, you and me
I watch us walking, holding hands
And my spirit does cartwheels in the sand

You are a stupid man, You don’t do what you can
You don’t know how to love, Cos you don’t do enough
And I give up on you, Cos you’re not worth my love
I set my spirit free so that I can be me

You don’t care what you say, I’m angry every day
Stick the knife in with a smile,
I’m hurting all the while
And I give up on you, Cos you’re not worth my love
I set my spirit free so that I can be me

If it were only so easy I would break away from you
If it were only so easy

You just can’t keep me here, I die when you are near
You put your love on hold, I won’t stay for a love so cold
And I give up on you, Cos you’re not worth my love
I set my spirit free so that I can be me

I’m waiting for the day when I can just walk away
You ripped me to the core and I’m worth so much more
And I give up on you, Cos you’re not worth my love
I set my spirit free so that I can be me

Wasn’t Tuesday, when I last saw you
Wasn’t Tuesday, no it can’t be true
Wasn’t Tuesday

Wasn’t Tuesday when you dropped a bomb on my head
Wasn’t Tuesday when I started to believe what you said
Wasn’t Tuesday when the tears filled up my eyes
Wasn’t Tuesday when you said goodbye

Wasn’t Tuesday, when we met in the park
Wasn’t Tuesday, when we argued ’till dark
Wasn’t Tuesday

Wasn’t Tuesday when you dropped a bomb on my head
Wasn’t Tuesday when I started wishing that I was dead
Wasn’t Tuesday with the rain clouds in the sky
Wasn’t Tuesday when you said goodbye

I used to think that Tuesdays were OK
But now I prefer any other day
If I could blot out one day of the week
It would be Tuesday

Wasn’t Tuesday, when you let me know
Wasn’t Tuesday, when you watched me go
Wasn’t Tuesday

Wasn’t Tuesday when you dropped a bomb on my head
Wasn’t Tuesday when my heart filled full of dread
Wasn’t Tuesday when I didn’t know the reason why
Wasn’t Tuesday when you said goodbye

No more Tuesdays
No more Tuesdays
No more Tuesdays
No more Tuesdays

Want someone to find me
Want somebody to find me singing hey yeah
Want someone to find me
Want somebody to find me singing hey yeah

Want someone to find me singing songs of love
And sweet devotion
Want somebody to find me singing songs of love
Bringing deep emotion hey yeah hey yeah

Want someone to like me
Want somebody to like me singing hey yeah
Want someone to like me
Want somebody to like me singing hey yeah

Want someone to like me singing songs of love
And sweet devotion
Want somebody to like me singing songs of love
Bringing deep emotion

Want someone to love me
Want somebody to love me singing hey yeah
Want someone to love me
Want somebody to love me singing hey yeah

Want somebody to love me singing songs of love
And sweet devotion
Want somebody to love me singing songs of love
Bringing deep emotion
Hey yeah
Hey yeah
Hey yeah
Hey yeah

One desert one grain of sand,
Let me tell you I understand
How small I am,
How small

One leaf one shady tree,
Let me tell you I know I’m me
And I’m small I am,
So small

Are you listening,
Can you hear me?

One lawn one blade of grass
Let me tell you time goes so fast
And I’m small I am,
So small,

One drop one ocean wide
Be nice to have you on my side
But I’m small I am,
So small

Are you listening,
Can you hear me?

So small
How small I am
How small

(so small)

You asked me if I ever did
You ask as if you never knew that I do
You should know that I do
You know I used to play around
But that was long before I found there was you
I was waiting for you
I don’t know why you’re always asking me to tell you more
I never gave you any reason to doubt me before

I don’t know what you’re trying to say
You ask me where I was yesterday
But you knew
I was sure that you knew
What can I say in my defense
A friend saw me out with someone else
It’s not true
I couldn’t do that to you
I don’t know why you’re always asking me to tell you more
I never gave you any reason to doubt me before

I’m not untrustworthy, unreliable
Your guilt is beginning to show
Untrustworthy, unreliable
Maybe its you whose found someone new

I spent all day waiting for the phone to ring
I just can’t seem to concentrate on anything
What am I going to do with myself if I can’t sort myself out
What am I going to do with myself
I need to sort something out
Cos

I’m a stupid woman with my head in the sky
I’ve fallen in love and I don’t know why
Its crazy and it aint no good for me
Cos you aint free to love me

I spent all day waiting just for you to call
Can’t think of a reason why you should do so at all
You told me that you loved me and I thought it was true
So why am I feeling oh so blue
It wouldn’t be hard to find somebody new
So why does it have to be you
Cos

I spent all day waiting just to hear your voice
I can’t ring you so I don’t have any choice
Maybe I should get my life sorted again
And go around looking after other men
I don’t really want to cos youre my best friend
And I don’t want it to end
But

Trying to give up you is like trying to give up cigarettes
I fill up my mind with other things but you I can’t forget
My need for you comes over me in overwhelming waves
The hole you left inside me has been empty now for days
Sometimes I feel so bad I have to lie down on my bed
While thoughts of you go racing round my head

Trying to live without you is just driving me insane
Nothing that I choose to do will occupy my brain
I don’t know what the answer is but it is plain to see
You haven’t got the decency to feel the same for me
If thinking ’bout you would make a difference and would make you mine
Thinking ’bout you wouldn’t waste all my time

I’d like to think I’m over it that I have beat the worst
But I have got to see you yet and then resist you first
It would be nice to run away and not live through the pain
But I don’t think that I could cope with not seeing you again
If I thought I could believe in everything you say
Then living part-time love would be o.k.

Another family crisis
Drama in the home
No time to be together
No space to be alone
There’s a mound of washing
He needs handkerchieves
He works in an office
He just can’t use his sleeves
Fancy some sin when the lights are dim and the kids should be asleep
There’s a noise by the door – you’re pretending to snore and round the corner they peep

There’s a pile of ironing
White shirts clean for school
Must keep up with the other mums
Or you’ll feel like a fool
Telephone bill is making you ill and you don’t know what he’ll say
Getting deeper in debt another meal to get and you don’t know how you’ll pay

Wake up in the morning everyone is yawning time to face another day
Only time for working there can be no room for shirking and there aint no time to play
He couldn’t leave her – he wouldn’t dare

He’s her lover, he’s her pet

She won’t let him break away yet

She’s got him on a chain of wishes

First of all he’s gotta do the dishes

Emotional blackmail is the snare

He couldn’t leave her – he wouldn’t dare

She’s got him where she wants him

Manipulates and bugs him

Her words cut through him like a knife

Anything for a quiet life

Emotional blackmail is the snare

He couldn’t leave her – he wouldn’t dare



He’s trapped and he can’t get out

Is this what living is all about

He can’t keep count of all the times he’s tried

Nothing he can do can keep her satisfied

He’d like to leave but here’s the sting

He’d have to leave her everything

And if he tries to break away

She will make the children pay

Emotional blackmail is the snare

If you see me out with anyone
Doesn’t mean I’m planning any fun
If you see me laughing in the sun
Doesn’t mean something has just begun

Truly, I’m only yours truly
I’m only yours

If you see me dancing in the night
Doesn’t mean I’ve found someone else who’s right
If you see me laughing and holding hands
Doesn’t mean I’m changing any plans

I’m only trying to fill my time
Cos you have trouble making up your mind
You’re always busy and you’re not free
So where does that leave me?

If you see me out with anyone
Doesn’t mean I’m having any fun
If you see me laughing and holding hands
Doesn’t mean I’ve found another man

If you see me and I don’t see you
And I look like I’m having fun without you
If you see me like this don’t be afraid
Don’t you worry sir you’ve got it made

Butterflies

If you listen to the lyrics first and like acoustic with voice – Suzanne Vega, Leonard Cohen…
Click the song titles below to view the lyrics…

Come my sweet baby put your hand in mine
I want to chase your blues away
I want to make you smile today
Anyway

My little one, I’ll wrap you in my arms
I want to ease your worried mind
Protect you from those who are unkind
Unwind

Let me be your comfort when times are not so good
I’ll be right there for you, you know I always would
Let me be your pillow to hold your weary head
I’ll be lying right there in your bed

Come here my sweet one I know you’re feeling small
I can see you’re wrapped into a ball
& I want to make you ten feet tall
You just call

I’d give anything to see
You the way you used to be
The way you used to look at me
There’s no sunshine in your eyes
I think you’ve lost your blue skies
There are no more butterflies in your eyes
I could see right to your heart
You couldn’t tear us apart
It was love at first sight
From the first night

Years of love and laughter
We could laugh at disaster
In our happy ever after
Together we were so strong
And it lasted so long
Why did it have to go wrong
For a song
Tell me what can I do
To make you feel brand new
Tell me what could I have done
Rather than run?

I want to bring back your blue skies
Make a new world for your butterflies
I want to see love in your eyes
I want you laughing again
I want to be your best friend
Please don’t say this is the end
It can mend

I let you down and I feel bad
There’s no excuse for what I do
If I’m lucky when you’re older
You’ll be able to forgive
But in my own heart
I should be helping you to live
A child abandoned brings tears to my eyes
So how could I do this to you
Your love is unconditional
Innocent and true

I try my best to keep in contact
But its so hard so far away
My love’s no chance to make an impact
When I don’t see you every day
If you’re ever lost and lonely
And you need someone to call
I’d be delighted if you’d phone me
If I can help at all
Thinking about you brings tears to my eyes
I’m missing all the things you do
I miss the special sunlight in your eyes
The smiles from me to you.

I let you down and I feel bad
You are the only child I ever had
I know this won’t mean much to you
There’s no excuse for what I do
Thinking about you brings tears to my eyes
I’m missing all the things you do
I miss the special sunlight in your eyes
The smiles from me to you.

There’s something I must tell you
Something I must say
Your stupid jealousy is getting in my way
I’m feeling hemmed in with every move I make
You want to own me and this I cannot take
Don’t tell me I don’t love you
You can hardly know
Sometimes it’s not so easy
For my love to show
Your love is so obsessive
You’re getting too possessive
For me

You make up conversations
Stories in your head
You’re reading crazy things into everything I’ve said
Your imagination will bring us to the ground
If you don’t expect things of me I can’t let you down
Don’t ask me where I’m going
‘cos you don’t need to know
I’ve been waiting for far too long
For your trust in me to grow
You have great expectations
There’s too many complications
For me

Love isn’t something
You can measure on a scale
All attempts to pin it down
Are surely doomed to fail
Love given freely has beauty all alone
Someone else’s love is impossible to own
You say “I love you” like it’s piled upon a stack
Giving isn’t giving if you’re expecting something back
I’m happy loving you
I know this much is true
Can you give your loving out for free
And simply be happy in loving me.

Last night I thought I heard you laughing
So I put my head around your door
And you were crying
Just like you were before
Don’t know what to tell you
Don’t know what I have to say
He won’t love you tomorrow
If he didn’t love you today

Don’t let him tell you he’s confused
Cos you’ll just end up being used
Just like before
Can you take any more
Your friends are telling you
Just what you have to do
Its not easy this I know
But you’re gonna have to go

I’m gonna miss you when you’re gone
But to stay here would be wrong
Because you’ll fall
I might not hear your call
You go and start again
Cos we will meet again
I want what’s best for you
Go do what you have to
