TATIANA - 2010

Early one morning I found myself crying
But what for I’m no longer quite sure
Cause my baby,
He lay by me
Forever more

My husband slept sound while I was creepin
Out the door to my lover’s arms
But still my baby,
He lay by me
Forever more

I came home stinkin of pot and whiskey
Though the law said not to drive
But still my baby,
He lay by me
Forever more

My cheatin heart, it gives me trouble
Though my man, no he doesn’t see
That his lady
She is crying
Forever more

Early this morning, I found myself crying
But what for? I guess now I’m quite sure
It’s cause my baby,
He lay by me
Forever more

It’s cause my baby,
He lay by me
Forever more

You say that I ask too much of you
But I disagree
You say I don’t understand the angles of
You and me
I try to play things straight, but there you go
now I can’t look you in the eye
I can’t stand all the things I have to do
To appeal to your wounded pride
Now you may look like honey
But you ain’t ever gonna be sweet to me
And though you may think I can be kind of funny
Well, that ain’t enough to be keeping me
You say that sometimes I walk too close
And no you won’t hold my hand
I’m tryin so very hard to cope,
Why won’t you understand?
I’m not trying to settle down,
I just wanna lay here in your arms a little while
I can’t stand all the things I have to do
To live in this perfect state of denial

Chorus

But every time I get up and try to walk away
You say please stay
Don’t leave me here all alone…
But how am I supposed to try
To put away my peace of mind
And give it all up so I can just
Wait by the phone?

Chorus

You left my place last night without even so much as a goodbye.
Did someone leave you a message that was sweeter than mine?
I’m not supposed to know, I’m not supposed to ask questions
Or you’ll call off the show, if I dare to even mention
That I may have a claim to your heart
And I might like to show it baby,
These things that you do, they’ll tear us apart
And don’t act like you don’t know it!
I’ll give up my claim to your heart,I’ll wash away those guilty pleasures
I’ll go it alone, I’ll make a new start
Cause these times they call for desperate measures
I told you time and again, that I’m not really into this game.
You woke me up this morning, and threw me out in the rain.
We can’t go on this way, this ain’t a way to treat your lover
When the only thing you’ve got to say, is “Chill babe- I’m workin under cover…”

Chorus

I need a man who will show me
Just how beautiful I can be
Not a situation that controls me,
I need a love that will make me free

Chorus

Last night I slept in the canyon
Thought I’d raise my eyes to the sky to see
Hoping to ask the right questions
Lord let the answers rain down on me

Cause I wanna feel
Your warm hands on me, my California
And I wanna buy
A one-way ticket away from home
And I’m gonna find
My way back to you my California
And see the waves upon your shores
And see the waves upon your shores

Life can be hard in the city
Sometimes some solitude can bring some clarity
All of this locked up emotion
You know I gotta let it all out of me

Cause I wanna feel
Your warm hands on me, my California
And I wanna buy
A one-way ticket away from home
And I’m gonna find
My way back to you my California
And see the waves upon your shores
And see the waves upon your shores

Cause I wanna feel
Your warm hands on me, my California
And I wanna buy
A one-way ticket away from home
And I’m gonna find
My way back to you my California
And see the waves upon your shores
And see the waves upon your shores

I’m sorry I had to wait so long for your love
I’m sorry for all of our pain
It always seems to feel like something we’ve stolen
A treasure that could be taken away

Still I can’t sleep without
I can’t eat without
I can’t dream without you
I guess I care too much
Always want your touch
I can’t be without you
My heart was so broken
But no glue seems to mend,
I’ll leave the door open
Baby it ain’t over til the end
Cause we’ve still got a castle to defend
A castle to defend

I’m sorry you lie awake and can’t dream at night
I’m sorry for all of our shame
We give it all we have, but it never seems enough
It always seems to come much too late

Still I can’t sleep without
I can’t eat without
I can’t dream without you
I guess I care too much
Always want your touch
I can’t be without you
My heart was so broken
But no glue seems to mend,
I’ll leave the door open
Baby it ain’t over til the end
Cause we’ve still got a castle to defend
A castle to defend

So when they’re storming at the gates
I’ll fight alone til my heart breaks
I believe in this imaginary love
So be my knight in shining armor
and I will be your queen

Still I can’t sleep without
I can’t eat without
I can’t dream without you
I guess I care too much
Always want your touch
I can’t be without you
My heart was so broken
But no glue seems to mend,
I’ll leave the door open
Baby it ain’t over til the end
Cause we’ve still got a castle to defend
A castle to defend

I know I don’t love you but I can’t get you off of my mind
Always thinking of you, though I ain’t the cheating kind
I sleep in my lover’s arms, am bothered by thoughts of your bed
Tryin not to think about who takes my place there instead

But you’re no good
Heartbreaker
Your dreamy eyes should hold no weight with me

Cause you’re bad news and I remember walkin this way before
Your attitude is that you always come first
I’ve played this game before and I’ve never even won a single hand
Why do I raise the stakes for the thoughts of another man?

You’re nothing but trouble but I can’t help that it turns me on
And it only adds fuel to this fire baby knowing that it’s wrong
The heat of your breath against my neck makes me weak in the knees
If I allow myself to go, you won’t tell anyone please?

But you’re no good
Heartbreaker
Your dreamy eyes should hold no weight with me

Cause you’re bad news and I remember walkin this way before
Your attitude is that you always come first
I’ve played this game before and I’ve never even won a single hand
Why do I raise the stakes for the thoughts of another man?

You know I know in my heart
On the morning after
Neither of you will bring me to
My happily ever after

Cause you’re bad news and I remember walkin this way before
Your attitude is that you always come first
I’ve played this game before and I’ve never even won a single hand
Why do I raise the stakes for the thoughts of another man?

Another day, another way
To get thrown out of home
But does it really matter what we said
Or who started it all
I never meant to piss you off
Or make you so mad

I don’t wanna disappoint but really what’s the point
When we’re not getting very much love at all
I’m not getting very much love at all

No they’ll never change
Even if we want them to
No they’ll never change
Even if it’s the right thing
Even if it’s the right thing to do
No they’ll never change
They’ll never change

So you try to give in
And give them what they wanted
Or whatever it is you thought that would be
But it’s never good enough
Cause its not who you are
To go around pretending to be somebody else

I don’t wanna disappoint but really what’s the point
When we’re not getting very much love at all
I’m not getting very much love at all

No they’ll never change
Even if we want them to
No they’ll never change
Even if it’s the right thing
Even if it’s the right thing to do
No they’ll never change
They’ll never change

I don’t wanna disappoint but really what’s the point
When we’re not getting very much love at all
I’m not getting very much love at all

No they’ll never change
Even if we want them to
No they’ll never change
Even if it’s the right thing
Even if it’s the right thing to do
No they’ll never change
They’ll never change

Most days I wake up and I’m feeling like I’m still a slave
Workin me to the bone, until I find me an early grave
You know it’s hard to find a place in this insanity
They’re always saying that’s the way that its gotta be.

But I find release in you
Manage some peace with you
You know I would get down on my knees for you
But I find release in you

Watch for the windows lock your doors so you can sleep at night
Close up the peep shows, you can never kill their appetite
You know it’s hard to find a place in this reality
Can’t stand them sayin that’s the way that its gotta be

But I find release in you
Manage some peace with you
You know I would get down on my knees for you
But I find release in you

Now the devil may be knockin at your door
And the world may crumble to the ground
But I have got all that I need in you
And everything will be alright
Everything will be alright

But I find release in you
Manage some peace with you
You know I would get down on my knees for you
But I find release in you

What do you want me to do, just stand on by?
Waiting to hear the truth, I’ve heard so many lies
I have got to keep on making my way through the world
Waking up the Evolution in every boy and girl
Waking up the Evolution

Evolution
There’s a way to make it better
Evolution
But we’ve got to do it together
Evolution
You know I need your attention
Cause we need a solution
For man-made evolution
Man-made revolution

If there’s a will, there’s a way that I have got to find
All of these ideas in my head will drive me out of my mind
I have got to keep on making my way through the world
Waking up the Evolution in every boy and girl
Waking up the Evolution

Evolution
There’s a way to make it better
Evolution
But we’ve got to do it together
Evolution
You know I need your attention
Cause we need a solution
For man-made evolution
Man-made revolution

Look around you everybody
Things right now are not so funny
Media that’s screening things
The Gods are watching from the wings
And no matter what we do or say
Gets convoluted anyway
But does that mean that we have no choice?

Evolution
There’s a way to make it better
Evolution
But we’ve got to do it together
Evolution
You know I need your attention
Cause we need a solution
For man-made evolution
Man-made revolution

I am cold and I am silent
And I‘m hoping for a chance to vent
But I am broken, can‘t say too much
Disengaged and numb, I feel out of touch
I find myself needing release
Behind the drapes I have no peace
But I look forward and try to focus
Not to keep my mind on hocus pocus

Don’t let me down tonight
Too much pain is caused with every fight
Just let me hang my head down low
Sometimes my heart beats steady but a little bit slow
And I’ll tell you one thing, that I won’t let me down tonight

If I‘m distant and can‘t explain myself
I guess I‘ve been beat down
Some things just can‘t be felt
And still I breathe in, and keep moving forward
I won‘t hit the ground
When I am lowered
I find the strength within myself
To put up with the pity and the weight of this hell
And I am stronger than you’ve been believing
I just turn out the lights to hide my grieving

Don’t let me down tonight
Too much pain is caused with every fight
Just let me hang my head down low
Sometimes my heart beats steady but a little bit slow
And I’ll tell you one thing, that I won’t let me down tonight

Who are you to judge me?
You ain’t walked a mile in my shoes
Who are you to tell me?
Who I should be and what I should do?

Don’t let me down tonight
Too much pain is caused with every fight
Just let me hang my head down low
Sometimes my heart beats steady but a little bit slow
And I’ll tell you one thing, that I won’t let me down tonight

If you wanna take a trip here baby
And rest your weary bones
Take a seat back, relax, get silly
It’s been a long hard road

Cause you’ve got fire beneath your wings
And you know that it’s gonna burn when you fly
The world has shown you a thousand things
And it’s hard to know the reasons why

So don’t stop believing in what we’re living for
Don’t stop believing
Don’t stop believing this our life
And we won’t let them take it away
No we won’t let anyone take it away
So don’t stop believing
Don’t stop believing

The nights are long in the cold hard city
You’re always up too late
You’ve been on ice for a long time baby
You can’t just sit there and wait

Cause you’ve got fire beneath your wings
And you know that it’s gonna burn when you fly
The world has shown you a thousand things
And it’s hard to know the reasons why

So don’t stop believing in what we’re living for
Don’t stop believing
Don’t stop believing this our life
And we won’t let them take it away
No we won’t let anyone take it away
So don’t stop believing
Don’t stop believing

But you’ve gotta keep fighting
Even though you don’t know who’s waging this war
But you’ve gotta keep fighting
Just be sure you know just what you’re fighting for
What you’re fighting for

So don’t stop believing in what we’re living for
Don’t stop believing
Don’t stop believing this our life
And we won’t let them take it away
No we won’t let anyone take it away
So don’t stop believing
Don’t stop believing

I get cold and weary
Thinking about losing my soul
Hungry and tired need some drinkin’
‘Cause I’ve got to be feeding my soul

I’ve come to feel so old
And I’ve come to feel so old

I feel a need to bleed you
Take all your money and run
Leave you with nothing to live on
‘Cause I’ve got to be having my fun

I’ve come to feel so old
And I’ve come to feel so old

I’ve lost my way through temptation
Relations have nothing to say
Lost all connection with loved ones
But just look at how far I’ve come going my own way

I’ve come to feel so old
And I’ve come to feel so old
