never there


i need your arms around me, i need to feel your touch
i need your understanding, i need your love so much
you tell me that you love me so, you tell me that you care
but when i need you baby, you're never there

on the phone long, long distance
always through such strong resistance
first you say you're too busy
i wonder if you even miss me

never there
you're never there
you're never, ever, ever, ever there


a golden bird that flies away, a candle's fickle flame
to think i held you yesterday, your love was just a game
a golden bird that flies away, a candle's fickle flame
to think i held you yesterday, your love was just a game

you tell me that you love me so, you tell me that you care
but when i need you baby
take the time to get to know me
if you want me why can't you just show me
we're always on this roller coaster
if you want me why can't you get closer?

never there
you're never there
you're never ever ever ever there

no phone

no phone, no phone
i just want to be alone today
no phone, no phone

ringing, stinging
jerking like a nervous bird
racking up against his cage
calls to me through out the day
see the feathers fly

no phone, no phone
i just want to be alone today
no phone, no phone

no phone, no phone
i just want to be alone today

rhyming, chiming
got me working all the time
it gives me such a worried mind
now i don't want to seem unkind
but god it's such a grind

no phone, no phone
i just want to be alone today
no phone, no phone

no phone, no phone
i just wanna be alone today

no phone, no phone

shaking, quaking
waking me when i'm asleep
never lets me go too deep
summons me with just one beep
the price we pay is steep

i've been on fire
yet i still stay frozen
so deep in the night
my smooth contemplations will always be broken
my deepest concerns will stay buried and unspoken
no, i don't have any change, but here's a few subway tokens

no phone, no phone
i just wanna be alone today
no phone, no phone

i will survive

at first i was afraid, i was petrified
i kept thinkin' i could never live without you by my side
but then i spent so many nights just thinking how you’ve done me wrong
and i grew strong, i learned how to get along

and so you're back from outer space
i just walked in to find you here with that, that look upon your face
i should have changed my fucking lock
i would have made you leave your key
if i’d have known for just one second you'd be back to bother me

oh now go, walk out the door
just turn around now, you're not welcome anymore
weren't you the one who tried to break me with desire?
did you think i'd crumble? did you think i'd lay down and die?

oh not i, i will survive
yeah, as long as i know how to love, i know i'll be alive
i've got all my life to live
i've got all my love to give
i will survive

i will survive
yeah, yeah...

it took all the strength i had just not to fall apart
i’m tryin' hard to mend the pieces of my broken heart
and i spent oh so many nights just feelin' sorry for myself
i used to cry
but now i hold my head up high

and you’ll see me with somebody new
i'm not that stupid little person still in love with you
and so you thought you’d just drop by and you expect me to be free
but now i'm saving all my lovin' for someone who's lovin' me

oh now go, walk out the door
just turn around now, you're not welcome anymore
weren't you the one who tried to break me with desire?
did you think i'd crumble? did you think i'd lay down and die?

oh not i, i will survive
yeah, as long as i know how to love i know i'll be alive
i've got all my life to live
i've got all my love to give
i will survive

i will survive
yeah, yeah…

daria

when you tried to kiss me
i only bit your tongue
when you tried to get me together
i only came undone
when you tried to tell me
the one for me was you
i was in your mattress back in 1982

daria, I won't be soothed
daria, I won't be soothed over like
smoothed over like milk
silk, a bedspread, or a quilt
icing on a cake
or a serene translucent lake
daria, daria, daria
i won't be soothed
i won't be soothed

when you tried to tell me
of all the love you had
i was cleaning oil from beaches
seeing only what was bad
when you tried to feed me
i only shut my mouth
food got on your apron
and you told me to get out

daria, I won't be soothed
daria, I won't be soothed over like
smoothed over like milk
silk, a bedspread, or a quilt
icing on a cake
or a serene translucent lake
daria, daria, daria
daria, daria, daria
daria, i won't be soothed
i won't be soothed

short skirt/long jacket

i want a girl with a mind like a diamond
i want a girl who knows what's best
i want a girl with shoes that cut
and eyes that burn like cigarettes

i want a girl with the right allocations
who's fast and thorough
and sharp as a tack
she is playing with her jewelry
she is putting up her hair
she is touring the facility
and picking up slack

i want a girl with a short skirt and a lonnnng jacket......

i want a girl who gets up early
i want a girl who stays up late
i want a girl with uninterrupted prosperity
who uses a machete to cut through red tape
with fingernails that shine like justice
and a voice that is dark like tinted glass

she is fast, thorough
and sharp as a tack
she is touring the facility
and picking up slack

i want a girl with a short skirt and a lonnnnng.... lonnng jacket

i want a girl with a smooth liquidation
i want a girl with good dividends
at citibank we will meet accidentally
we'll start to talk when she borrows my pen

she wants a car with a cup-holder arm rest
she wants a car that will get her there
she's changing her name from kitty to karen
she's trading her mg for a white chrysler le barron

i want a girl with a short skirt and a lonnnnggggggggg jacket
