(M. Etheridge)

Sometimes I know that it's never enough
Survival is fine but satisfaction is rough 
I try with an angel tonight 
Spread these wings and I'm on for the ride
Cruise these streets where my innocence hides 
There's some things you can't deny 
What is it about this human condition 
I need some kind of promise 
Some kind of submission tonight

chorus
Heavy 
Ain't it heavy 
Ain't the night heavy 

I'm feelin' kinda loose I'm feelin' kinda mean
I've been feeling kinda wild since I turned seventeen 
Or is it madness 
Tell me where can a woman find any kind of peace 
When does the fury and the agony cease 
How long have I got to say please 
There's a hole in my jeans I only wanted to fade
I've been ripping out seams 
Somebody else made tonight

chorus

. . .


(M. Etheridge)

Well I've been looking 
Looking for an answer 
Somebody promised me one 
And I've been waiting 
Waiting for the chance 
Well somebody said it would come 
Wake me up when we hit 2001 

I've been talking 
Talking to the maker
Of the compromise
They said she's fine
Call the undertaker 
You shouldn't look surprised 
Wake me up when we hit 2001

It's barely alive with a story at five 
So turn your video on 
We live in these years dark age of fear 
Meet me in 2001 

I saw my sister|
Saw the ones who twist her
A social suicide
If looks could kill 
Each and every cheap thrill
Could be a homicide 
Wake me up when we hit 2001

It's barely alive with a story at five
So turn your video on 
We live in these years dark age of fear 
Meet me in 2001

I've searching
Searching for a reason 
To either fight or fly 
Either way patriot or treason 
It's gonna be one long hard ride 
Wake me up when we hit 2001

. . .


(M. Etheridge, K. McCormick, M.F. Lewak) 

I don't want to talk about it
I've done enough I think 
I don't want to spend more money 
Don't want another drink
I would scratch out all the images 
If I had the chance 
Don't ask me what I'm thinking 
Can't you see I only want to dance 

chorus
Dance without sleeping 
Dance without fear 
Dance without senses no message I hear 
Dance without sleeping
Dance till I'm numb 
Dance till I think I can overcome 

Walking on the edge of rage and understanding 
Between the black and the white 
This child is so angry 
Alone here tonight 
Alarming desperation
Leads me to believe 
With all my shields and protection
It's only me I deceive

chorus

The eyes on a magazine 
The voice on the radio 
The kiss on the movie screen
This is the story I know 
Fathers hold on and they never go 
Mothers hold on and they never go
Lovers hold on and they never go 
Lovers they come and they never go 

chorus

. . .


(M. Etheridge)

I've an image in my pocket
Of some dark demon 
That temptation brought to life 
And it chokes all of my breath out
I'm scratching and screaming' 
'Til morning comes to night

chorus
Place your hand 
My body will decide
Place your hand 
My anger will subside

There are fragments of possessions 
Shards of past relations
Splintering my skin 
A fear so black and hollow
It can suffocate creation
And refuse to let you in 

chorus

And they speak to me like prophets in my dreams 
Speak to me like prophets in my dreams 
Shouting like prophets in my dreams 

Sometimes I think it's easy 
Too easy for the living 
To receive the promised land 
Can flesh provide the answer 
The reaction for sensation
Justify your hand 

chorus

. . .


(M. Etheridge) 

You tell me not to call you up 
Cause it ties you down 
Don't tell your friends
You've been hangin' round 
You must be crazy for me

You say you'll see me once or twice 
Every week or two 
There's more important things 
That you've got to do
You must be crazy for me

chorus
Cause when I kissed you last night 
In my own backyard 
You ran so fast 
And you fought so hard 
You must be crazy for me 
You must be crazy for me 

You don't like my hair 
You don't like my car 
You don't like my friends 
You met at the bar 
You must be crazy for me 

I see you shake you head 
And you roll your eyes 
Your firm remark 
To remove my thigh 
You must be crazy for me

chorus

Do not expect you to wait
Do not expect you to phone
Do not expect anything 
When I catch you alone 
You must be crazy for me

chorus

. . .


(M. Etheridge) 

chorus
Meet me in the back
Don't make me wait too long
I could change my mind
And tell you that it's wrong
So meet me in the back 
Where the light don't shine 
First show me yours
Maybe I'll show you mine

My hands are shaking 
My heart is beating fast 
Is love worth making 
When it can never last 

chorus

I'm gonna give directions
I'm gonna take it slow 
But if I don't get protection 
I will just say no

chorus 

I can hear the music 
Pounding through the walls 
And to the beat of dancing
I will give you all

chorus

. . .


(M. Etheridge) 

And he looks at me in wonder
And he looks at me in fear 
Wrestling with his anger 
His pride and stony tears 
To place me in his life 
Will be hard and slow 
Does he want it need it 
I might never know 
The boy feels strange
Oh the boy has changed 

Looking from my tower 
I can see his fortress strong
Surrounded by his army 
Where do I belong 
Does he ever find the answers
In the cars as they go by 
Does he ever want to ask me why
The boy feels strange 
Oh the boy has changed

And he's seen with all the women 
Who think that he's a god
And he blesses whom he pleases 
Holding fast to the facade 
I want to reach out and believe him 
Through his miles and miles of pain 
But lately when I touch him 
The boy feel strange 

And he speaks to me of business 
When I ask him how he's been 
Keeps me at a distance 
Never getting under skin
Can he make a new beginning 
Does he even want to try
Or will he only let it die 
The boy feels strange 
Oh the boy has changed

. . .


(M. Etheridge) 

You brought me to trust you brought me to tears
In one tender touch the pain disappears 
I have been to the sword seen it come seen it die 
As we enter the dark I beseech you to try 
In prophecy all good things must end 
So take care my love my friend 
Keep it precious 
Keep it precious

This yielding is fine this promise rare 
One day at a time we've agreed to dare
Holding you tight with wide open arms 
I'm letting you go no stranger to harm
Go on ride your way do not break or bend 
Just take care my love my friend 
Keep it precious 
Keep it precious 

And the wonder let the wonder never cease
And the madness of the pleasure and ecstasy 
Danger believing me 
Wounding and healing me please
Keep it precious 

I believe in your eyes 
I believe in your fate I believe we can fly on the wings we create 
A voice from behind calls up anger and fear 
We can silence that scream it's simple and clear
Nothing must die only if failed to mend 
So take care my love my friend
Keep it precious

. . .


(M. Etheridge) 

I came here to let you know
The letting go
Has taken place 
I have held the winter's son 
Become one 
Set my pace 
Isn't that what we wanted all along 
Freedom like a stone 
Maybe we were wrong 
But I can say goodbye 
Now that the passion's died 
Still it comes so slow 
The letting go 

Piece by piece I take apart
This complicated heart 
And I hope to find 
Something I can prove is real 
I can feel is truth 
I can say is mine 
That's all I ever wanted to be
The closer that I got 
The further I could see
But when lovers change 
And the night feels strange 
We choose our road
The letting go

I came here to let you know 
The letting go 
Has taken place

. . .


(M. Etheridge, K. McCormick) 

Hey you watching as this light bleeds all over me
Shadows rise and fall listen as I call is this reality
I will be with you tonight 
and tomorrow be 1,000 miles away 
I will be with you tonight 
I will be with you as long as you say stay 

One little piece of my soul 
One little piece of my whole life 
I give to you 
Take it now

chorus
I'm with you 
I'm not with my lover 
It's not for another broken heart
It's for you 
Not just for some shattered dream I once knew 
It's for you
It's for you 

Hey you looking through a mirror to a cage
I'll take you away this miracle you pray for on the stage 
I will be with you tonight I will be with you 1,000 miles away 
I will never leave
Inside of you a piece of me will stay 

One little piece of my soul 
One little piece of my whole life 
I give to you 
Take it now

chorus

Come closer now

chorus
