Track Name: One More Hour
in one more hour
i will be gone
in one more hour
i'll leave this room
the dress you wore
the pretty shoes
are things i left
behind for you

oh, you've got the darkest eyes

I needed it
(i know it's so hard for you to let it go
i know it's so hard for you to say goodbye
i know you need a little more time)

if you could talk
what would you say
for you things were
just night and day
take off the dress
take off the face
i'll hold you close
before i leave

don't say another word
about the other girl
Track Name: Turn It On
don't say the word
if you don't want it done
don't tell me your name
if you don't want it sung
don't come any closer
that's good enough
don't go away
can't stand the thought

it's too warm
inside your hands
it's too hard
it's too good
it's just that when you touched me
i could not stand up
i fell into
i fell down

why can't you tell me
is it worth a fight
do i sound crazy
well i just might
why do your words
have to ring so false
why do your eyes
have to change so much
Track Name: The Drama You've Been Craving
oh i wait
(i'm a time bomb)
for something more today
(i'm a fuse)
you know the place it stinks
(tongue is tired)
i smell like despair
(from over use)

all the bridges gonna burn gonna fall down
burn it down it's so hot it's so hot hot
(is it all on you)

the clock i'm punching in
(i'm a monster)
work 'til i can't give
(i'm a machine)
now there's no time left
(and where i'm headed)
no time left for anything
(it's so obscene)

all the drama that you crave that you really want
that you crave that you want that you want want
(is it all on you)

kick it out kick it in

oh i wait
(i've got drama)
for something more today
(on the brain)
Track Name: Heart Factory
we're manufacturing hearts we've got the perfect thing
the word on the street we've got the new love machine
heart with an on/off switch and a remote control
now you can program how you feel before you walk out the door

well you can leave 'em hot and you can leave 'em cold
and you can give 'em what you want and you can get up and go
and you can take your heart out and you can put it back in
i think we found the way to put the fun back in sin

it's not like an organ more like a valentine
it's cherry cherry red and it beats on time
we're trying to reduce that heart on heart crime
you bring your heart to us we'll get it purified

what are you waiting for?
Track Name: Words And Guitar
words + guitar
i got it words + guitar
i like it
way way too loud
i got it words + guitar
i play it all i play it all
i play it words + guitar
(can't take this away from me
music is the air i breathe)

take take the noise in my head
take take the noise in my head
c'mon and turn turn it up

i wanna turn turn you on
i play it all i play it all
i play it words + guitar
(well you want it or you don't
either you'll come or you won't
it's the thing you'll never know
it's the thing you'll never own
rock you till you're good and dead
rock you till there's nothing left)

i dream of quiet songs
i hear the silky sounds
hush hush and rock
oh give me pretty song
oh let me have that sound
tonight
Track Name: It's Enough
baby got a record
taking me home
play it loud
when you're all alone
hear me singin
hear this song
hear my voice
in your favorite song

enough it's enough
if you want it that much
it's enough

can't hear nothin
but that sound
is it what you want
are you ready
let's go

hit the floor
shake it baby
a little more

i make
rock n roll
Track Name: Little Babies
i'm the water i'm the dishes i'm the soap
i will comfort make you clean help you cope
when you're tired feeling helpless
come inside i am the shelter
and then when you're feeling better i'll watch you go

dum dum dee dee dee dum dum dee dum do
all the little babies go oh oh i want to
dum dum dee dee dee dum dum dee dum yeah
rock the little babies with one two three four

are you hungry did you eat before the show
i peeled potatoes set the table washed the floor
i know the others treat you rough
and when you know you've had enough
you'll come and see me cos you know
i'm always here

mother's little helper
Track Name: Not What You Want
saw johnny at the store
i said get your car let's hit the road
he said tell me baby what's wrong
oh tell me baby what's wrong
do do do do.....
(she's on fire now
you think you wanna watch
i think you'd better not)

do you wanna get the wheel
swerve my heart
it pounds with steel
he said tell me baby what's wrong
oh tell my baby what's wrong

it's not what you want it's everything

got my foot on the floor
we'll go 80 90 5 maybe more
oh oh tell me baby what's wrong
oh tell me baby what's wrong

it's not what you want it's everything

hold me out, you're my girl
Track Name: Buy Her Candy
hey don't you wanna
run and call her name
if i buy her candy
will she know who i am

she's famous
she's the best
cannot lay
my heart to rest
she is selfish
she is kind
no one can say
she is mine

like water like spring
fickle fancy fickle girl
rain down from the sky
when i need you the most
Track Name: Things You Say
you got your words
but they make you stuck
now you can't feel
now you can't want
it's just too messy
it's just too thick
is it too scary
is it too real

it is one desire
burning hot and bright
it could fill the sky
it could fill me up
worth the trouble
worth the pain
it is brave to feel
it is brave to be alive

you write it down
you strategize
never go over
your little lines

but i'll breathe the air
i'll stop the clock
i'll touch the sky
and say what i want
Track Name: Dance Song '97
well you know there ain't no doubt
when the feeling finds you out
you know you can try to run
i tell you it still will come

when you feel your body shake
trip and fall you can't walk straight
baby then you know it's done
you can feel your heart is stung

you're the one that i saw
you're the one that i want

well you can try to keep it down
try not to let the words come out
but i tell you it's no use
in your eyes they see right through

if you're going way too hard
if you're feeling way too much
but inside you can't stop
desire she eats you up

you're the one that i saw
you're the one that i want
