FIONA APPLE lyrics - The Idler Wheel...

Left Alone

Original and similar lyrics
You made your major overtures When you were a sure and orotund mutt And I was still a dewy petal Rather than a moribund slut My love wrecked you You packed to twirl your skirt at the palace It hurt more than it ought to hurt I went to work to cultivate a callus [Hook:] And now I'm hard, too hard to know I don't cry when I'm sad anymore, no no Tears calcify in my tummy Fears go inside a bot-tle How can I ask anyone to love me When all I do is beg to be left alone? Oh, when I try to love I can love the same man in the same bed in the same city But not in the same room, it's a pity, but Oh, it never bothered me before Not 'til this guy, what a guy, oh God what a good guy And I can't even enjoy him [Hook] How can I ask anyone to love me When all I do is beg to be left When all I do is beg to be left When all I do is beg to be left alone Alone, alone My ills are reticulate My woes are granular The ants weigh more than the elephants Nothing, nothing is manageable So, couldn't we skip the valedictories? I can see a door there: Shut it and forget my number [Hook] How can I ask anyone to love me When all I do is beg to be left When all I do is beg to be left When all I do is beg to be left alone

Black Room Boy

ABOVE & BEYOND "Group Therapy"
It's the same old scene You've been stuck at the screen for a lifetime You keep your mind sharp and clean With a fix of caffeine for the nighttime You got a page full of friends In a world without end, DIKU? But if push comes to shove You can do without them if they make you With all this poison inside It's much too late to decide You've got your mind made up You've been living a lie in your white room For all the hours that you've cried There's a year of love they denied So you slip through the door And fall to the floor in your BLACK ROOM You're a black room boy You're feeling so weighed down Forget the losses and burn down Fall into city lights Nothing else is easy You kissed your mummy's hand Wearing daddy's ring When they left you And you buried yourself in the pain That they couldn't accept you You're in a world of your own Got no cellular phone -- they can't track you But the girl at the stove With a sketchy rapport She will back you

Well Meet Again

Guy Lombardo
WE JUST COULDN'T SAY GOODBYE Guy Lombardo We thought that love was over, That we were really through, I said I didn't love her, That we'd begin anew And you can all believe me, We sure intended to, But we just couldn't say goodbye. The chair and then the sofa, They broke right down and cried, The curtains started wavin' For me to come inside. I tell you confidentially, The tears were hard to hide, And we just couldn't say goodbye. The clock was striking twelve o'clock It smiled on us below, With folded hands it seemed to say, We'll miss you if you go. So I went back and kissed her, And when I looked around, The room was singin' love songs, And dancing up and down. And now we're both so happy, Because at last we've found. That we just couldn't say goodbye.

Lab Monkey

ALICE IN CHAINS "The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here"
Anybody out there Anyone at all Can you finally hear this deep in Scratching through the wall Came far to find me Down the rabbit hole Watch me smiling back while chewing on my skull I know, won't forget Limped away from the wreck Is the monkey breathing Looking kinda sick Got a witty comment for me Have yourself a kick Does it make you feel good Are you full and strong Gonna end up in this cage and I hope your stay is long I know, won't forget Limped away from the wreck We'll never know what this is 'til we take a look inside I'm sure we'll find what came before it dies We'll never know what this is 'til we take a look inside I'm sure we'll find what came before Had enough, I don't need you to stick my hide Had enough, no more tears for me left to cry Had enough, I don't need you to blind my eyes Had enough, no more tears for me left to cry I know, won't forget Limped away from the wreck We'll never know what this is 'til we take a look inside I'm sure we'll find what came before it dies We'll never know what this is 'til we take a look inside I'm sure we'll find what came before it dies Had enough, I don't need you to stick my hide Had enough, no more tears for me left to cry Had enough, I don't need you to blind my eyes Had enough, no more tears for me left to cry

If I Didn't Love You

TINA ARENA "In Deep"
So good When it's good I wanna spend my whole life lovin' you But I'm tired And you don't know how close I've come to leaving you You try my patience And you race me to the wire It takes every ounce of my will and desire If I didn't love you If I didn't love you like crazy If I didn't love you baby As much as I do I'd just walk out the door I couldn't take it anymore I wouldn't put up with what you put me through If I didn't love you It's hard But you won't give up 'till you Push me to the wall But I know You're the only one who'll be there for me When I call (oh yes you will) I can't help believing That it's worth it somehow Cause I've worked too damn hard To wanna give up now If I didn't love you If I didn't love you like crazy If I didn't love you baby As much as I do I'd just walk out the door I couldn't take it anymore I wouldn't put up with what you put me through If I didn't love you If I didn't love you Nah, If I didn't If I didn't love you like I do When you love someone Nothings black or white When the riptide runs There's no wrong or right I'll sail with you but I'll refuse to drown So don't you take me down, down Take me down down Don't you take me down, down, down If I didn't love you If I didn't love you I'd walk out that door I don't need it anymore Need to put up with what you put me through If I didn't love you If I didn't love you If I didn't love you If I didn't love you like I do o o o I'd walk out that door I'm not comin' back no more No more

If You Like What You See

JESSE POWELL "Jesse Powell"
(Verse 1) I see you over there You've got your eyes on me Hoping that I won't notice I feel it in your stare You're inviting me to touch your heart You're not sure just where to start So, baby Come over here I won't bite you Baby, I like you If you've been hurt before I won't let you down I'm only one of a few good men that's left to go around (Chorus) If you like what you see Don't hide it from me 'Cause I would never leave you alone If you like what you see Come share, share my love And the dream that a broken heart that's lost Can find it's way home, home... (Verse 2) So, baby, take my hand And we'll be half way home The rest to me is destiny We stand at love's command I'll protect, defend and honor you There's no fear when love is true So, baby I'm coming over there 'Cause I believe you really care If you've been hurt> If you've been hurt before I won't let you down I'm only one of a few good men that's left to go around (Chorus) (Bridge) Like what you see> If you like what you see Give it to me> Come give your love to me Like what you see> 'Cause I like it, baby Come and get it> C'mon, I like it... (Chorus/Vamp Out)
