But Now I Do... I used not to sleep Too many secrets to keep
Dirty rivers running deep I used not to sleep But now I do... I do... I used
not to speak My tongue was tangled with grief The words were too, too sad
to release I used not to speak But now I do... I used not to touch Thought
it would hurt me too much I didn't know it could be such fun... I used not
to touch But now I do... I do... I used not to sleep But now I do I do...


Weird Girl You said Nobody else would have me You said Nobody else would have me You said "You're weird, girl and you're wild. Nobody wants a broken child" You said Nobody else would have me And you were right… Nobody else but you You said Nobody else would love me You said Nobody else would love me You said "Everybody's heard your story No-one's listening any more" You said Nobody else would love me And you were right… Nobody else but you

Bowlface en Provence My heart hurts My heart hurts I've been loving so hard I have hurt my heart I feel nice I feel right My face aches My ribs might break I am killing myself Laughing myself to death I feel nice I feel right I can hardly talk I can barely sing I've been screaming with joy Screaming! Throwing your name again and again Throwing your name in the air And catching it in my mouth again... Catching it in my mouth again I couldn't feel any better

Pearl Hey beauty...you have to listen to me Those tears on your face, they look so out of place (Don't let loving make you blue) And don't let this ignorant boy run rings around your heart Don't let this little fucker steal your sparkle You dug in mines for that... Cos you're a pearl And you're a princess And he's a fool if he doesn't know this Oh beauty...you have to listen to me There's nothing you can do if he's just not into you (Don't let loving make you blue) This boy must be blind if he can't see you And your gorgeous behind... Cos you're a pearl And you're a princess And he's a fool if he doesn't know this

Nuzzle Can I keep you, like a secret, In my pocket, against my thigh? Can I hold you, like a chicken, Press you warm against my chest? And when I see you, Can we nuzzle? I won't tell you that I love you... Like a crocodile I will cradle you in my mouth And rock you on my tongue Between the silk and my skin Nearly where my soul begins I'll balance you there And when I see you, Can we nuzzle? I won't tell you that I love you... Not with words... Not that way... With my nose against your neck I'll close my eyes...and think it... "I love you" I won't say Can I keep you, like a secret, Like I already do.

King I once had a king Made me laugh, made me sing Made me everything I once had a king Oh how I loved my king Oh how he loved me I once had a king He unlocked my throat Drew out every note For him this I wrote Oh how I loved my king Oh how he loved me So all you lovers and friends Future, present and then If you're thinking of me Be as sure as can be Know this one thing I have had a king...
( All will be well )


Away with These Self-Loving Lads (words Trad.) Away with these self-loving lads Whom Cupid's arrow never glads Away poor souls that sigh and weep In love of them that lie and sleep For Cupid is a meadow god And forceth none to kiss the rod. Away with these self-loving lads Whom Cupid's arrow never glads God Cupid's shaft, like destiny Doth either good or ill decree Desert is born out of his bow Reward upon his feet doth go What fools are they that have not known That love likes no laws but his own? Away with these self-loving lads Whom Cupid's arrow never glads

The Devil and Me And all this time When I thought it was just the devil and me But you, my love, Were there all this time I thought I was alone Thought there was something wrong All this time Who were you hiding from? I needed you all along All this time Oh sweet thing, sweet thing Where have you been? Lonely I was, as well Through several shades of hell All this time What were you scared I'd see? How utterly lovely you can be? Oh sweet thing, sweet thing Where have you been? You only had to call And I'd have run across the broken glass Or fought back flames Or whatever it takes Just to be near you I was always here... We all need someone to give it away to! You found my life, you found me And I love you I love you...
