Unpretty -TLC

I wish i could tie you up in my shoes
Make you feel unpretty too
I was told I was beautiful
But what does that mean to you
Look into the mirror who’s inside there
The one with the long hair
Same old me again today (yeah)

My outsides are cool
My insides are blue
Every time I think i’m through
It’s because of you
I’ve tried different ways
But its all the same
At the end of the day
I have my self to blame
I’m just trippin

You can buy your hair if it won’t grow
You can fix your nose if he says so
You can buy all the make-up
that M.AC. can make
But if you can’t look inside you
Find out who am I too
Be in a position to make me feel
So damn unpretty
I’ll make you feel unpretty too

Never insecure until I met you
Now I’m bein stupid
I used to be so cute to me
Just a little bit skinny
Why do I look to all these things
To keep you happy
Maybe get rid of you
And then i’ll get back to me (hey)

My outsides looks cool
My insides are blue
Everytime I think I’m through
It’s because of you
I’ve tried different ways
But it’s all the same
At the end of the day
I have myself to blame
Keep on trippin

You can buy your hair if it won’t grow
You can fix your nose if he says so
You can buy all the make-up
that M.A.C can make
But if you can look inside you
Find out who am I too
Be in a position to make me feel
So damn unpretty

Bird of the Summer -A Fine Frenzy

You came with the season, as the first swallow sang
A brown headed stranger, with a five-letter name

We planted our kisses where the wild berries grow my feet sprouted wings and I flew all the way home dooodoodoo

My cheeks red like fire engines racing straight to the heat of your skin and I know our days are numbered, early bird of the summer you’ll fly south just as the fall begins

The leaves changed their colors and the schoolyards were filled
My coat with the patches barely keeps out the chill dooo

You sent me a postcard from a town out of state, I wish it were warmer and I hope you’re the same doopdoodoo

The fields where we wandered were golden
Now only muddy my boots and I know I should recover, you’re a bird of the summer, I was wrong to try and capture you

Flight
Flight

Gone is the pale hand of winter
Here is the first flush of may

And soon I will discover whether birds of the summer fly in circles or just fly away

 

Avalanche -Marie Digby

[Verse 1]
Since when do you come around?
And the temperature’s changed, nothing’s the same
Left me, in yesterday;
You don’t see me that way, touch me that way, no more..
When you get so cold, I’m not sure just how much longer I can hold..

[Pre-Chorus]
You got me standing at the bottom of this mountain that we’ve made (mountain that we’ve made)
And the ground is shaking from all of our mistakes (all of our mistakes)
But there’s no one, but then the ice is in our way
It’s a matter of time,
We can rewind

[Chorus]
If only you knew,
Why my heart is through for you
I’m tryna break through,
Don’t you think it’s worth the chance?
Let’s leave the past, is that too much to ask?
And where do we stand? (Where do we stand?)

Can we pull through this avalanche? (avalanche, avalanche, oh, this avalanche, avalanche, avalanche)
Can we pull through this avalanche? (avalanche, avalanche, yeah, this avalanche, avalanche, avalanche, ooooh)

[Verse 2]
We see what’s up ahead
Why do we stay?
Watching us fading
Trapped in by regret
There’s no way out, and there’s no way in, no
And it’s so cold, I’m not sure just how much longer I can hold

[Pre-Chorus]
You got me standing at the bottom of this mountain that we’ve made (mountain that we’ve made)
And the ground is shakin’, from all of our mistakes (all of our mistakes)
But there’s no one, but then the ice is in our way
It’s a matter of time, we can rewind

[Chorus]
If only you knew,
Why my heart is through for you
I’m tryna break through,
Don’t you think it’s worth the chance?
Let’s leave the past,
Is that too much to ask?
And where do we stand? (Where do we stand?)

Can we pull through this avalanche? (avalanche, avalanche, oh, this avalanche, avalanche, avalanche)
Can we pull through this avalanche? (avalanche, avalanche, yeah, this avalanche, avalanche, avalanche, ooooh)

[Brigde]
The bond is breaking and it’s taking over my spirit (quickly, quickly)
Something’s shifted, have we drifted too far apart now?

[Chorus]
If you, oh,
If only you knew,
Why my heart is through for you
I’m tryna break through,
Don’t you think it’s worth the chance?
Let’s lead the past,
Is that too much to ask?
And where do we stand? (Where do we stand?)

Can we pull through this avalanche? (avalanche, avalanche, oh, this avalanche, avalanche, avalanche)
Can we pull through this avalanche? (avalanche, avalanche, yeah, this avalanche, avalanche, avalanche, ooooh)
