One night I heard the overture Of a gigantic opera [romantic] Nirvana for a primadonna But in my haste to catalogue and order The notes slept back under the cover [I was awake] I could have heard a little [better later] Things always do sound [better later] Oh But I could not hold on [any longer] Had to wake up and make it there I had this tune, a cantata Multitude of voices and drama, The counterpoint and rhythmic elements, The arrangement was so tiring and draining I could’nt cope with everything [So I made a pop song] I could have demo’ed a little [better later] Things always do sound [better later] Oh But I could not hold on [any longer] I had to find a publisher Direct from the collective unconscious To my single soul a piece so luscious A music so gorgeous To make me famous, illustrious I sent it all to Sony, Warner, Universal and a few other... I waited right on for some reaction But I admit I was not too persistent I was so sure of my talent [Come on, sing it along!] I could have sung this song [better later] Things always do sound [better later] Oh But I could not hold on [any longer] I had to be the precursor Better later...

First time we looked at each other, Looks locked up, so no one even dared to dare What a silly situation, Since we knew that love was in the air… (Later) Each time we fought over dish-wash, Or over the kid’s educational mishmash, Once the nasty words have taken off , Once the dishes were all broken… You were there, oh boy! - I was here, Sedimenting under tons of solid air. For a chance to move anywhere, One has to let go of his ego I am thirsty, I burst, I’ll be first! Now that we know each other so well The fight is against indifference. When the silence is warm and cozy, When the looks become so easy… You are there oh boy! - I am here, Sedimenting under tons of solid air. For a chance to move anywhere, One has to let go of his ego You are there standing - I am here, Sedimenting under tons of solid air. For a chance to move anywhere, One has to let go of his ego I am thirsty, I burst, I’ll be first! I’m so hungry it hurts, can’t be worse! I’m unquiet but I’m set, I will bet! I reset! I forget! I’m your pet!

When you sneaked into the bed In the wee hours of the morning I refused to bow the head No more crying or denying Finger snap, switch on the light Your face was so full of contrition I couldn’t wait to start a fight But you had an explanation After all, we’re a free couple, And I’m a grown up girl… You could say that you love me And how much you do care You could serve a plate of “want you” too, I’ll eat it all, just a breakfast of sunlight Would have loved to believe in you But not again, I’ll refrain So you can swear all you want to me now I swear that I won’t fall You looked at me right in the eyes You gave a bunch of good reasons But your words were in disguise Your lips the gates of a prison You said for me you still burn Your heart is kinda like on fire But when a lovely flame turns That’s when the smoke gets in your eyes You had to appease the tingling Pour water, breathe some fresh air Couldn’t see time was flying That’s why you’re back late in the lair But you forget a thing to mention: Why the wind has changed direction After all we’re an all free couple, And I’m a grown up girl You could say that you love me And how much you do care You could serve a plate of “want you” too, I’ll eat it all, just a breakfast of sunlight Would have loved to believe in you But not again, I’ll refrain So you can swear all you want to me now I swear that I won’t fall Cos I know, cos I feel, I’m a grown up girl, Cos I feel, cos I know No, not again, no more pain, I’m a grown up girl, No more pain, not again No, no more sway, no more play, I’m a grown up girl, No more play, no more sway Cos, Cos I know, cos I feel, I’m a grown up girl, Cos I feel, cos I know

What am I supposed to do now? Yesterday I knew it so bad And now there is nothing tomorrow I am looking for it right now I would like to know everything Everything that in this world exists I am not looking for something I have to say I miss this feeling so bad What am I supposed to do now? Yesterday I knew it so bad And now there is nothing tomorrow I am looking for it now Growing up isn’t pleasant at all Even if I hated being a child But at least I knew exactly what I’d be And now there’s only me and me What am I supposed to do now? Yesterday I knew it so bad And now there is nothing tomorrow I am still looking for it What am I supposed to do now? Yesterday I knew it so bad And now there is nothing tomorrow I am still looking for it right now…

about

A fresh POP offering for the young at heart!

It's worth a dime, so don't be shy and go for playtime!
