Volcano Girls Nina Gordon 3:18

Leave me
Lying here
Cause I don't wanna go

Tell me tell me what you really want from me
You've got me let me know
I'm falling off and I need you terribly
One down and one to go

Volcano girls we really can't be beat
Warm us up and watch us blow
But now and then we fail and we admit defeat
We're falling off we are watered down and fully grown

Leave me
Lying here
Cause I don't wanna go

A million miles of running and I hit the wall
I bounce back and I run some more
But this is it, I'm giving up, I'm calling quits
So get down and meet me on the floor

Way to go to flip off everyone
I steal your thunder then I try to bolt
But I could stand a little pity now and then
I'm falling off I am watered down and fully grown

I told you 'bout the seether before
You know the one that's neither or nor
Well here's another clue if you please....
the seether's Louise

Leave me
Lying here
Cause I don't wanna go
Go I don't wanna go I don't wanna go
I don't wanna go


Awesome Nina Gordon 3:32

Goodbye twenty-five
You were a good year for the girls
Goodbye twenty-five
You'll be the goldfinch I'm the harpies

There's something in unity
Forget humility
What's coming over me is awesome
God forgive me
I know it's so awesome
Heaven help me
I know it's a fine place to be

Goodbye indolence your filthy left hand kept me down
Goodbye cowardice
You'll be the tigris I'm euphrates

There's something in unity
Forget humility
What's coming over me is awesome
God forgive me
I know it's so awesome
Heaven help me
I know it's a fine place to be

There's something in unity
What's coming over me
Go fuck humility
We're awesome
All the salts go
I know it's so awesome everybody
I know it's a fine place to be


With David Bowie Nina Gordon 2:25

Will it ever come like it did for you?
I kind of heard you singing and I never knew
No, I never knew

My heart skips around when I hear the sound
I'm never alone 'cause you're following me home
I'm falling in love my walkman
And me with David Bowie

With teenage medication flowing through my veins
I can face the strain it's causing a sensation that I can explain
Yeah, I can explain

My heart skips around when I hear the sound
I'm never alone 'cause you're following me home
I'm falling in love my walkman
And me with David Bowie

You want me to sing - I can! I can!
You want me to play - I can! I can!
You want to be in a band, I can
I'll never be anything more than I was today

Will it ever come like it did for you?
I kind of heard you singing and I never knew
No, I never knew
My heart skips around when I hear the sound
I'm never alone 'cause you're following me home
I'm falling in love my walkman
And me with David Bowie
Him and me in a treei-n-g


Benjamin Nina Gordon 4:05

Take me away
I know I could use the rest
I want to clear up this mess
I need a few days with my good sense
I need a few good days

Benjamin
No
Where did you go?

When you were falling from my tree
I was not scared
I thought you'd meet me back up there
It never dawned on me you were home free
It never dawned on me

Benjamin
No
Where did you go?

You said that I could tie you down


The Morning Sad Nina Gordon 3:08

Wake up and talk to me
It's a long time since last night
I know we said things
The saddest things and I'm not sure it was wise

But when the morning's sad you don't look back
Though you sure don't look ahead
The morning sad you know the morning sad
The morning sad never had it so bad

I'm writing desperate songs while you're fast asleep inside
I could try to sing until it rings but my voice comes out uptight

'Cause when the morning's sad you don't relax
No, you cannot clear your mind
The morning sad you know the morning sad
The morning sad never had it so bad

I tried a little
I tried a lot
I'm not a window
And you've seen through everything I've got
I don't think I'll be safe until everyone's awake

So wake up and talk to me
It's a long time since last night
I know we said the maddest things and I'm not sure who was right

See when the morning's sad
You don't attack 'cause you're much too weak to fight

The morning sad you know the morning sad
The morning sad never had it so bad
Never had it so bad


Loneliness Is Worse Nina Gordon 5:01

When you've had enough
When you've got it bad enough
And you can't let go

When it comes to blows
And you start to overflow
And you can't get home

It's a subtle kind of cruel
It taps my spine here
I'm drawing a line
I'm asking please

Don't you want to be happy with me?
I'm afraid if you don't come around soon
I'll turn sadder than you ever were
And you'll learn loneliness is worse
You've got to try

December's all alone
And he's calling me on the phone
But he sounds so cold
He says he loves me so
But how would I ever know?
Certain words grow old

It's a vicious kind of catch
It sides me blind now
I'm out of my mind
I want to scream

Don't you want to be happy with me?
I'm afraid if you don't come around soon I'll turn sadder than you ever were
And you'll learn loneliness is worse
You've got to try

Love liked me long ago
It had a way of making everyone the same
But now the angels must laugh and sigh
To hear me pleading with you
Needing this you this way

Oh why don't you want to be happy with me?
I'm afraid if you don't come around soon I'll turn sadder than you ever were
And you'll learn loneliness is worse
You've got to try to stay mine all the way


Stoneface Nina Gordon 2:44

You didn't notice I was gone
Guess you were tying up your arm

And when I stand on my head you never react
I can't get you to crack not one fucking smile

But when it comes right down to it, I'm gonna run right back to him
I wanna be smack dab with him
I've grown to love his stoneface so
I've grown to love it

A snakey goddess got my man
That kind of love
Don't understand him

And when I swallow my gum you never react
I can't get you to crack not one fucking smile

But when it comes right down to it, I'm gonna run right back to him
I wanna be smack dab with him
I've grown to love his stoneface so
I've grown to love it

Swallow hard until you
I'll be the one to thrill you
I'll be the first to kill you
And if you won't die I will

When I short sheet the bed you never react
I can't get you to crack not one fucking smile
But when it comes right down to it, I'm gonna run right back to him
I wanna be smack dab with him
I've grown to love his stoneface so
I've grown to love it


Earthcrosser Nina Gordon 5:28

Sleep little flea
Little boy
Me a freak
Am I clean?
I feel like men
I feel like boys
I think I'm peeling

The ringing in my ears from playing too loud
I hear the ocean
I hear the crowd

I'm disconnected
I am unattached
An unmade bed makes me feel like a failure
Bedroom eyes lead to blurry vision

And the ringing in my ears from playing too loud
I hear the ocean
I hear the crowd

Too pale
Too sick
Too scrawny
But I'll sleep here anyway
And the sheets smell like bodies
Not mine
Not yours

It's two a.m. and it's quiet again
Where's my lip gloss?
