Now I Can Die Nina Gordon 3:08

He takes me everywhere he goes
And he goes everywhere.
He likes to try on all my clothes,
But not my underwear.
And he never hates me
Just wants to levitate me,
Now I know the secret of the world...

I am the girl
and he is the guy.
I never dared to be simple than wise.
Surprise, surprise...
He opened up my eyes
I understand everything
And now I can die.

He gives me everything he's got
And he's got everything.
He calls me on the phone a lot,
He's got the special ring.
Yeah he really loves me
Sweetheart and turtledoves me,
Now I know the meaning of that word...

I am the girl
and he is the guy.
I never dared to be simple than wise.
Surprise, surprise...
He opened up my eyes
I understand everything
And now I can die.

I'm not trying to say that I don't wanna live
Cuz I do.
I got more to take and I got some more to give you now I do
But if tomorrow my number should be called,
I won't be sad,
I won't feel bad at all.
Yeah he really loves me
Sweetheart and turtledoves me,
Now I know the secret of the world...

I am the girl
and he is the guy.
I never dared to be simple than wise.
Surprise, surprise...
He opened up my eyes
I understand everything
And now I can die.
He gives me everything
And now I can die.


2003 Nina Gordon 4:05

Hey baby
Why'd you turn away?
I was about to say that
Something baby
I thought would make you smile
At least for a little while
But oh well baby
That's the way it goes
Right from my head down to my toes

Your the first to know
That I got a brillant plan
I hope you understand

I wanna leave in 2003
I wanna see what the future can bring to me
I wanna
And when I do
I'll meet you here my darling yeah
And when I'm free
I'll be waiting where I said I would be
Oh my love
Will you wait for me?

What we found
Is such a precious thing
And that's what I'm trying to sing
But before I lose my nerve
I better write down these words
Cause i don't know what you heard

I wanna leave in 2003
I wanna see what the future can bring to me
I wanna
And when I do
I'll meet you here my darling yeah
And when I free
I'll be waiting where I said I would be
Oh my love
Will you wait for me?

And you that I won't change my mind
I made a promise to be true
Let them say that it's a selfish game
But I won't play with anyone but you

I wanna leave in 2003
I wanna see what the future can bring to me
I wanna
And when I do
I'll meet you here my darling yeah
And when I free
I'll be waiting where I said I would be
Oh my love
I'll be waiting where I said I would be
Oh my love
Will you wait for me?


Tonight and the Rest of My Life Nina Gordon 5:15

Down to the earth I fell
With dripping wings,
Heavy things won't fly.
And the sky might catch on fire
And burn the axis of the world
That's why...
I prefer a sunless sky
To the glittering and stinging in my eye.

Feel so light
This is all I wanna feel tonight
Feel so light
Tonight and the rest of my life.

Gleaming in the darksea
I'm as light as air
Floating there breathlessly.
When the dream desolves I open up my eyes
I realize that...
Everthing is shoreless sea
Weightlessness is passing over me.

Feel so light
This is all I wanna feel tonight
Feel so light
Tonight and the rest of my life.

Everthing is waves and stars
The universe is resting in my arms.

I feel so alive
This is all I wanna feel tonight
I feel so light
Tonight and the rest of my life.


Badway Nina Gordon 3:09

The pinch,
One inch.
Half a head,
And half dead.
No Pain,
No Gain.
There is a million voices in my brain.

It's like a game of hide and seek, And I play everyday.
I close my eyes and count to ten.
1, 2, 3 everybody runs away,
I made a badway
It's such a badway
Can't you give a damn on a better day
I can't come out to play.
I'm in such a bad, bad way.

Purple leather,
Makes it better.
A purple coat or a purple sweater.
Clothes makes the girl I know,
But I can't get dressed when I'm this low.

Like a cellophane hand grenade
But I can't pull the pin.
I set the bait and I back away,
And I try to see if I can reel you.

I made a badway
It's such a badway
Can't you give a damn on a better day
I can't come out to play.
I'm in such a bad, bad way.

Go away.
Don't go away.
Now go away.

A little peach,
A little blue,
A little water I'm good as new.
I wanna swallow all of you,
But I'm biting more than I can chew.

It's like a game of hide and seek, And I play everyday.
I close my eyes and count to ten.
1, 2, 3 everybody runs away,
I made a badway
It's such a badway
Can't you give a damn on a better day
I can't come out to play.
I'm in such a bad, bad WAY.


Horses In The City Nina Gordon 4:09

They walk the horses home at night right by my window
They pull their carriages along busy city streets
It's from another time
It's like a lulluby
But I don't think I can sleep tonight
So I count the street lights
I count the stars
I make a wish and wonder where you are
I wonder if I'll ever live long enough to feel again

Help me cause I'm falling out of grace
I hang my head and hide my face
I don't what it is
I just feel out of place
Like horses in the city

I play the game
I dropped the ball
I lost another friend
I gained a future
But I can't see where the future ends
I write a letter or write a song
But once again my voice just come out wrong,
tonight
I wonder if I'll live long enough to sing again

Help me cause I'm falling out of grace
I hang my head and hide my face
I don't what it is
I just feel out of place
Like horses in the city In the city.. Yeah

But they don't seem frightened
As the cars go speeding by
So why am I so terrified to close my eyes tonight
I'm just afraid there's no time, no time this time

They walk the horses home at night right by my window
They pull their carriages along busy city streets
I wonder if they'll live to run without the reins again

Help me cause I'm falling out of grace
I hang my head and hide my face
No, I don't know what it is
I just feel out of place
And I don't know what it is,
know what it is,
I just feel out of place
Like horses in the city,
In the city... Yeah


Hold On To Me Nina Gordon 4:06

We're the same and you don't even know it
We're afraid and we try not to show it
But you're tired and I am too
And there's only one thing we can do

You've gotta hold me
And tell me what you need
And don't be afraid fo what you're feeling
When you know me well then
Know I wouldn't leave you
Just hold on to me

When we're apart, I still feel together
I still believe in a thing called forever
But we're drifting apart, it's true
And it's breaking my heart in two

You've gotta hold me
And tell me what you need
And don't be
Afraid of what you're feeling
When you know me, well then
Know I wouldn't leave you
Just hold on to me
Hold on to me

We'll drive away where no one can find us
It's time to leave those dark days behind us
In my dreams, it's always you
And there's only one thing we can do

You've gotta hold me
And tell me what you need
And dont be
Afraid of what you're feeling
When you know me, well then
Know I wouldn't leave you
Hold on to me
Just hold on to me

I still believe in a thing called forever
Do you still believe?


New Years Eve Nina Gordon 3:28

Normally I'd be french-twisting my hair
And selecting the right earings to wear.
Oh it's a special evening for most,
And normally I'd be proposing toast.
But not this year...

Because I'm here,
The parties all around me.
Your there, And difference has bound me.
Oh I know it's not in fashion
Wearing heartache on your sleeve
But I'm here with you there so who cares what I wear,
On New Years Eve.

Normally I would be knee deep in champagne,
Kick me heals until neighbours complain.
Oh it's a glamorus evening for most,
And normally I would be upstaging the host.
But not this year...

Because I'm here,
The parties all around me.
Your there, And difference has bound me.
Oh I know I should have dressed up,
But I just can't make believe that,
I'm here with you there so who cares what I wear,
On New Years Eve.

If your flirting with some other girl tonight
I'm not flirting with some other guy.
I'm just thinking how last year at midnight you blew me away
With the resolution that you made.

Because I'm here,
The parties all around me.
Your there, And difference has bound me.
Tonight before the ball drops
I'll grab my car and leave.
I'm here with you there so who cares what I wear,
On New Years Eve.
I'm here with you there so who cares what I wear,
On New Years Eve


Fade to Black Nina Gordon 4:08

And it feels like a movie
Cause I've done something heavy
And now I'm all alone
And you know I like it

Well I wish was older
I could hold my liquor
And then I blow your cover
Instead of my own

Cause there's nothing i can do
To prove that I still love you
And I think I hear my friends through the wall

I'm gonna fade to black
I think I'm gonna fade to black
And I swear to God I'd take it back
It's just no use
What's done is done
I can't blame anyone but me

Everybody's out there
Without me
They're not even talking
About me
Flying out of the city
And they don't even miss me

Cause there's nothing i can do
To prove that I still love you
And I think I hear my friends through the wall

I'm gonna fade to black
I think I'm gonna fade to black
And I swear to God I'd take it back
It's just no use
What's done is done
I can't blame anyone but me

Four days in the haze
Biggest mistake I've ever made
And I gotta get out of this place
Cause everyone knows
Even the ones that don't
Fade to black

I'm gonna fade to black
Take it back
It's just no use
What's done is done
I can't blame anyone but me
But me

I'm gonna fade to black


Number One Camera Nina Gordon 2:59

So here I go,
I know this feeling awfully well.
I could build a camera,
Custom made to tape record the smell
Of the perfume that we used to share
Until you spilt it on the floor,
What more could anybody ask for?

I'll remember you in poloroid
The glitter and the glue,
All that noise.
I should probably sorta miss you
But I see you all the time in poloroid.

I'm up and away,
My beautiful cliche.
I have wasted to much precious time
Pretending I'm ok.
Oh I gotta get out of the kitchen next time
When I cannot stand the heat,
My feet,
Were colder than they'll ever be.

I'll remember you in poloroid
The glitter and the glue,
All that noise.
I should probably sorta miss you
But I see you all the time in poloroid.

We were bored,
There was nothing else to do.
Play our records and posing in the nude.
It was a dirty mind,
So it was cool.
And I alway thought I'd know you.

Everybody knew the score
They knew they could not trust us.
But I could peel you like a pear,
And God would call it justice.
Oh I guess there is nothing left to do
But live with just the memory of you,
I do
And since you figure light blue..

I'll remember you in poloroid
The glitter and the glue,
All that noise.
I should probably sorta miss you
Yeah I should kinda sorta miss you
But I see you all the time in poloroid.


Got Me Down Nina Gordon 4:05

And this is the way it's gonna be.
I gave him away and now I'm free.
But he was the life I meant to lead.
There's nothing left of me,
This is my melody...

And why must the night crawl by like this?
And why do we dwell on what we'll miss?
I've got to be careful what I wish,
My happiness resists.
This is my goodbye kiss.

He got me down.
And now I'm only singing for my health
Got me down.
And now I can't get up myself.
Got me down, ohhh.
Turn around and tell me when it's over.
And it's time for me to get up off the ground.

And there is really nothing left to say.
But this couldn't wait another day.
Something confusing but OK,
Has got me in it's sway.
This is my getaway.

He got me down.
And now I'm only singing for my health.
Got me down.
And now I can't get up myself.
Got me down, ohhhh.
Turn around and tell me that it's over.
And it's time for me to get up off the ground.

And though I try I hear you now,
I think we built a wall of sound
Between us.
And though you know I love you still,
I guess we both just lost the will.

He got me down.
And now I'm only singing for my health.
Got me down.
And now I can't get up myself.
Got me down, ohhhh.
Turn around and wake me when it's over.
And it's time for me to get up off the ground.

Got me down, hoooo.
You got me down.


Too Slow To Ride Nina Gordon 3:50

From the moment I arrived
Till the day that I die
I was selfish and slow...
Too slow to ride,
By your side.
But I was so afraid
That I began to fade

And now another bright has turned to grey
Someone elses life will take my place
Though I'm getting used to the aftertaste
You know I miss your eyes
I miss your face

And when the sun went dead
And the moon was up ahead
Then I finally figured out
What I should have said to you then
And no one is to blame
But we will never be the same

And now another bright has turned to grey
Someone elses life can take my place
Though I'm getting use to the aftertaste
You know I miss your eyes
I miss your face

And there's no use in trying
I can't be what I was

And now another bright has turned to grey
Someone elses life can take my place
Though I'm getting use to the aftertaste
You know I miss your eyes
I miss your face


Hate Your Way Nina Gordon 4:47

I hate your way,
I don't care what you say.
I hate your way.
I don't care,
And I'm only half there.
So I don't care.

They can cut me down
Till I'm the talk of the town.
I'm a fool for you.
Had to sell my soul
But you were so rock and roll.
I'm a fool for you.

I hate your way
A little more everyday.
I hate your way.
A little more,
I could leave but what for?
A little more.

They can cut me down
Till I'm the talk of the town.
I'm a fool for you.
Had to sell my soul
But you were so rock and roll.
I'm a fool for you.
You.

And it's wicked to be so stupid.
Man it's stupid to be so dumb.
I'm getting crooked,
I can feel it
I can feel it my bones.

They can cut me down
Till I'm the talk of the town.
I'm a fool for you.
Had to sell my soul
But you were so rock and roll.
I'm a fool for you.
You were so rock and roll.
I'm a fool for you.


The End Of The World 3:39

Why does the sun go on shining?
Why does the sea rush to shore?
Don't they know it's the end of the world?
If you don't love me anymore.

Why do the birds go on singing?
Why do the stars glow above?
Don't they know it's the end of the world?
It ended when I lost your love.

I wake up in the morning and I wonder.
Why everything is the same as it was.
And I can't understand,
No I can't understand Why life goes on the way it does.

Why does my heart go on beating?
Why do these eyes of mine cry?
Don't they know it's the end of the world?
It ended when we said goodbye.

I wake up in the morning and I wonder.
Why everything is the same as it was.
Cuz I can't understand,
No I can't understand Why life goes on the way it does.

Tell me why does my heart go on beating?
And why do these eyes of mine cry?
Don't they know it's the end of the world?
It ended when we said goodbye.
Why?
It ended when we said goodbye.
