(M. Etheridge)

I know what you're thinking baby 
I used to be just like you
You move when she's not looking baby
One sugar ain't enough for you 
You, you're taking out your loans
You're burying your bones
Before your cover's blown
You better take it home

chorus

I like the way you look
I know you like me
But one and one and one
Baby makes three 
Stop playing those eyes 
If you want me to keep
Your little secret

Tell it softly to me baby
You never meant no one no harm
Your wonderland's a mirror baby 
It's swiftly fading like your charm

You, you're stepping out of line
You're spilling all the wine
Leave it on the vine 
I can't give you mine

chorus

I could I won't 
I can't I don't
You make it hard
Talk down my guard
My senses soaked
My ego's choked 
I will not lie

. . .


(M. Etheridge)

I'll buy you mangos baby 
Your favorite fruit 
I'll shave everything baby 
I'll press my suit
I'll find that song by Perry Como you like to sing 
I'll eat your TV dinners 
And wear you cigar ring 
Do you think that I can persuade 
Don't make me fade because 

I really like you baby 
I want to see you baby
I really like you baby
I want to be you baby

I'll gladly make you
My first tattoo 
You and me forever
In red and black and blue
I'll let you drive my car
I'll even paint my eyes
Forget about all my friends 
And tell outrageous lies 
Do you think I can persuade 
Don't make me fade because 

I really like you baby
I want to see you baby 
I really like you baby

. . .


(M. Etheridge)

I know a place 
Down past an old shack 
On a road that goes to nowhere 
Ain't nobody coming back 
We can go there tonight 
We can talk until dawn 
Or maybe something else 
I'll leave the radio on 

There's no one to hear 
You might as well scream 
They never woke up
From the American dream 
And they don't understand
What they don't see 
And they look through you 
And they look past me 
Oh, you and I dancing slow 
And we got nowhere to go

Past the Wal-Mart and the prison
Down by the old V.A. J
ust my jeans and my t-shirt 
And my blue Chevrolet
It's Saturday night 
Feels like everything's wrong 
I've got some strawberry wine 
I want to get you alone 

Down by the muddy water 
Of the mighty Mo 
In an old abandoned box car
Will I ever know 
Dance with me forever 
This moment is divine
I'm so close to heaven
This hell is not mine

. . .


(M. Etheridge)

It's 1:25 a.m. I think I've seen that look somewhere before 
1:25 a.m. I thought that you were headed for the door 
Then something touched my skin 
I won't ask you to leave here any more 

Was it the talk or the drink or the dance that led to this 
Was I so naive presuming the innocence 
Well it's 1:54 and it's such an unusual kiss 

Come on come on come on 
Over and over 
Come on come on come on
We all wanted this
Come on come on come on 
Over and over
It's such an unusual kiss

The smell the taste the touch is so brand new 
The thrill of the eyes that capture this forbidden view
It's 2:45 and you'll have some explaining to do

It's 3:17 a.m. please let me into your eyes
It's 4:23 and I try to hold on as you rise 
I'll give you all that I have if that's what you want me to try 

Come on come on come on
Over and over 
Come on come on come on 
We all wanted this 
Come on come on come on
Over and over
It's such an unusual kiss 

It's 5:26 a.m. I've got nothing left that I can say 
5:26 a.m. black and white has melted into grey
My baby draws the shades as the taxi pulls away 

Come on come on come on 
Over and over 
Come on come on come on 
We all wanted this 
Come on come on come on 
Over and over 

. . .


(M. Etheridge)

I know you're home 
You left your light on 
You know I'm here 
The night is thin 
I know you're alone 
I watched the car leave
Your lover is gone 
Let me in 

Open your back door
I just need to touch you once more 

I want to come over 
To hell with the consequence
You told me you loved me 
That's all I believe 
I want to come over 
It's a need I can't explain
To see you again
I want to come over 

I know your friend 
You told her about me 
She filled you with fear
Some kind of sin 
How can you turn 
Denying the fire 
Lover I burn
Let me in 

Open your back door
I just need to touch you once more 

I want to come over 
To hell with the consequence 
You told me you loved me 
That's all I believe 
I want to come over
It's a need I can't explain
To see you again 
I want to come over

I know you're confused 
I know that you're shaken 
You think we'll be lost
Once we begin
I know you're weak 
I know that you want me 
Lover don't speak
Let me in

I want to come over 
To hell with the consequence
You told me you loved me
That's all I believe 
I want to come over 
It's a need I can't explain
To see you again

. . .


(M. Etheridge)

I want to find me a car 
With only one headlight
A straight six Ford 
On a good luck night 
I want to roll down the windows 
And teach you to fly 
I want to give you a thrill 
The kind you can't buy

I want to lose all your demons and go
I want to tear off your chains 'cause I know 

All the way to heaven is heaven
Caught between the spirit and the dust 
All the way to heaven is heaven 
Deep inside of us 

I want to find me a bar 
With a blue light on Dollar shot specials 
A bartender named Dawn 
Painting the town 
Selling the farm 
You can pierce your nose 
And I'll tattoo my arm

I want to lose all your demons and go
I want to tear off your chains 'cause I know 

All the way to heaven is heaven 
Caught between the spirit and the dust 
All the way to heaven is heaven
Deep inside of us

I want to find me a carnival 
Outside of town
A tilt-a-whirl set up 
With a merry-go-round
Cotton candy fingers
And a snow cone mouth
I want to roll you in sawdust 
Till they run us both out 
All the way to heaven 

. . .


(M. Etheridge, J. Shanks)

Take, take a look at the sky 
Sometimes your heaven seems so far away
Take, take a look under here 
Where deprivation turns into decay 
I've stood under this rain 
Felt it seep into my brain 

I've shut my eyes and crawled around this mud 
I'm scared of growin' old
I shiver when I'm cold
Don't you think I bleed the same blood

I, I could've been you
You could've been me 
One small change that shapes your destiny 
If you want the proof 
Cut me and you'll see 
I could've been you
You could've been me 

Wait, wait before you turn off 
Maybe there's a chance we can relate 
Wait everybody turns on 
Why deny a fact that's so innate
It's not so easy anymore 
The way you used to keep score
Not so black and white the color of your sin 
Take a walk inside my shoes 
A path I didn't choose 
Spend the night inside of my skin

I, I could've been you 
You could've been me 
One small change that shapes your destiny 
If you want the proof |
Cut me and you'll see
I could've been you 
You could've been me 

Change is turning into fear
Fear is melting into hate 
With hate you justify your crime
A crime compassion can erase 
Erase erase 

Touch, touch what I feel 
And know I believe everything I say
So go, go if you must
Remember one thing as you walk away

I, I could've been you
You could've been me 
One small change that shapes your destiny
If you want the proof
Cut me and you'll see 
I could've been you

. . .


(M. Etheridge)

I wonder what you're doing
In the night out there 
Is a sad summer breath tangled in your hair 
Can you hear the lonely engines
Screaming through the town
There's no where to run 
When the darkness comes down 

Is there a song inside of you 
That you tried to forget
Like your fake ID and your mom's cigarettes
Does it take you back
Is the vision intense 
You and me in Shriner's Park 
Trying to make some sense 

You were just seventeen 
But your laughter was mild 
You liked my dreams you thought 
I was wild Is there a rhythm in your step now 
That reminds you of a dance 
Do you push it all away 
Cause you never took the chance

You'd sneak out your window 
When I'd come for you 
I'd be waiting in the street light on 8th Avenue
You'd slip into my car 
We'd drive down past the fence
You and me in Shriner's Park 
Trying to make some sense 

Did you feel like you were crazy 
When they sent you far away
Did no one have the answers 
When you hung your head to pray 
You could not let yourself dream
Never dare believe 
You could ever be more 
Than you were born to be 

Do you lock up your house 
Like you locked up your past
If I were to call 
Could you free me at last 
Could you slip into my car
Could we drive down past the fence 
You and me in Shriner's Park 

. . .


(M. Etheridge)

You woke me up at 3:00 a.m. 
To tell me about the fire 
You said that she was more than a friend 
You were consumed by your desire 

And so it goes 
This too shall pass away
It cuts so strange 
The only thing that stays the same 
Is change

Your love was here but now it's gone 
And your eyes no longer want me 
And now I can't hold back the dawn 
And the truth that seems to haunt me 

And so it goes 
This too shall pass away 
It cuts so strange 
The only thing that stays the same
Is change 
The only thing 
That stays the same
Is change

I'm not so sure where I have been 
I don't know just where I'm going 
Hard as I hold it in my hand 
I can stop the wind from blowing

And so it goes 
This too shall pass away
It cuts so strange 
Roll me away 
It cuts so strange 
The only thing that stays the same

. . .


(M. Etheridge)

Take off my shield 
Carry my sword 
I won't need it anymore
Find me a sky 
Give me my wings 
Frozen and broken but free 

Tell them I'm all right 
I'm coming home 
Tell them I'm all right 
I am alone 
This war is over 
I'm coming home

Take off my shame 
Bury it low 
I won't need it anymore
Find me the sun 
Give me it whole
Melt all the chains in my soul

Tell them I'm all right 
I'm coming home
Tell them I'm all right 
I am alone 
This war is over 
I'm coming home 

Take off my pain
Carry me slow
I won't fight here anymore 
Tell them I'm all right 
I'm coming home 
Tell them I'm all right
I am alone 
This war is over
