BARTENDER 

I'll give you a lapdance, a super trance, baby,

I'll find romance that's true

or I could just listen and not give you my opinion, yeah,

I'd be a bartender for you

I could not tell you what I think and just pour you a strong drink, yeah,

get under that sink with you

fixin' up your drain, take away your pain, baby,

I'd be a free plumber for you

 anything to make you happy again

anything to make you see I'm your friend

anything to take away your blues

I'd be a bartender for you

Don't think about it twice, and I won't give you no advice, yeah,

but I know what's best for you

you hate it when I'm right but I'll try with all my might, yeah,

to keep it to myself

anything to make you happy again

anything to make you see I'm your friend

anything to take away your blues

I'd be a bartender for you

perhaps that's all we need is someone just to pour us a drink

and spend the night or two

cookin' up breakfast and hearin' what they love about us, well now,

I could do that for you

anything to make you happy again

anything to make you see I'm your friend

anything to take away your blues

I'd be a bartender for you

c'mon, honey, I'll just sit right over here and I'll just listen

yeah, I won't give my opinion, yeah, well, maybe just a little bit

but I'll just listen

I'll just listen

I'll just listen

just listen

 


 

Beautiful Love

I don’t believe in such a thing called love

he said to me, when I was lying in his bed

he said, “now don’t you go thinking that I will be your man

cause you haven’t met someone as cruel as I am”

cruel love don’t tempt me again

I know what it’s like to leave

cruel love don’t act like my friend

I know what it’s like to bleed

I have been crying for days since I left

I opened up, though I knew he’d forget

the time that we shared melts away with my miles

I just wish I could loose the sight of his smile

cruel love don’t tempt me again

I know what it’s like to leave

cruel love don’t act like my friend

I know what it’s like to bleed

he turned off his phone

I turned off my hope

tried to shrug it off, take on a new love

but my body’s in bondage for he took out his claim

and just to see him again, I would do it all the same

cruel love don’t tempt me again

I know what it’s like to leave

cruel love don’t act like my friend

I know what it’s like to bleed

I try to believe in such a thing called Love

I said to Him when I’m down on my knees

He said, “now don’t you go thinking that you are alone

cause right here with me, child, you’ll always have your home”

beautiful Love come and get me again

beautiful Love could you please be my friend

we both know what it’s like to bleed

 


 

Find your Heart

We’re driving through Texas, and you don’t know where your heart is

misery follows us and I’ll take a new direction

heading South, looking for some comfort

just find me a man that I don’t need to understand

for the word, for the word

I better go inside

for the word for the word

could you take me on my outside

we’re driving through Texas, and you don’t know where your heart is

I’m not going to be lonely

So I’m looking for levity in unfamiliar places

no language not talking

or traces of the faithless

they take me as I am, they don’t need to understand

‘cause complexity and silence and sex is all the same

for the word, for the word

I better go inside

for the word for the word

could you take me on my outside

we’re driving through Texas, and you don’t know where your heart is

I’m not going to be lonely

I long to see your mama’s face when I walk through the door

looking at me like I’m her daughter, her daughter to be

but you’d rather drown in your own indecision

well, that’s not ecstasy to me

you’ll never be my ecstasy

So I head out for a little grace and comfort

find another way to get me through the night

I save my heart for no one now

and I pray for a tougher skin

and a warm place to lye within

for the word, for the word

I better go inside

for the word for the word

could you take me on my outside 

you’re moving to Mars and I know it is impossible

I’m not going to be lonely

Hope you find your heart

 


 

Jump  (for Tosca)

You asked me to write you a song

on a day I wish had never come

‘cause I might have to make a decision

it’s one I don’t think I can make

and you said, “just be heartless and make up your mind”

sometimes you cannot worry what’s out on the other side

and you might have to jump

you might have to jump

and think about it later

you walk around and cry

I can’t bear to see you go down

so I’m out drinking to take the edge off

you’re home and there’s no sound

and I think that you are really my only true love

cast out of heaven ‘cause you loved me too much

and I know I will have to let you go

I know you will jump

you love and love, love and love but it may not be enough

you come back to the apartment, it’s so cold

lights are on, and you’re still silent

you lead me right to the bathtub, lay down, and ask me to turn the water on

and I think that I’ll do anything to make you feel better

lifetimes and lessons are all that separate us

well I might leave my life

I might let you starve

‘cause somehow it’s a bit more appealing than playing God

I’ve traveled for years with you

now I’m out there on my own

checking into another hotel room

I lye in the bath and turn the water on

I know you will jump

I know you have to jump

and we’ll think about it later
