"Mad Season"- Matchbox 20

I feel stupid

But I know it won’t last too long

And I’ve been guessing

But I could’ve been guessing wrong

You don’t know me now

I kinda thought that you should somehow

It’s that whole mad season got you down

Well I feel stupid

But it’s something that comes and goes

And I’ve been changing

I think it’s funny that no one knows

And we don’t talk about the little things that we do without

When the whole mad season comes around

So why you gotta stand there looking like the answer now

It seems to me you come around

And I need you now

Do you think you can cope, you’ve figured me out

That I’m lost and I’m hopeless

I’m bleeding and broken

Though I’ve never spoken

I come undone

In this mad season

I feel stupid

But I think I’ve been catching on

I feel ugly

But I know that I still turn you on

You’ve grown colder now

Torn apart angry, turned around

Will that whole mad season knock you down

Are you gonna stand there

Or are you gonna help me out

We need to be together now

And I need you now

Do you think you can cope,

You’ve figured me out

That I’m lost and I’m hopeless

I’m bleeding and broken

Though I’ve never spoken

I come undone

In this mad season

And now I’m crying

Isn’t that what you want

And I’m trying to live my life on my own

But I’m holding on to old times

I do believe I am strong

So someone tell me why, why, why

Do I, I, I

Feel stupid

And I come undone

Well I come undone

And I need you now

Do you think you can cope, you’ve figured me out

That I’m lost and I’m hopeless

I’m bleeding and broken

Though I’ve never spoken

Well I need you now

Do you think you can cope you figured me out

I’m a child and I’m hopeless

I’m bleeding and broken

Though I’ve never spoken

I come undone

In this mad season

In this mad season

Been a mad season.

There’s something that I can’t quite explain

I’m so in love with you

You’ll never take that away

And if I’ve said it a hundred times before

Expect a thousand more

You’ll never take that away

Well expect me to be

Calling you to see

If you’re OK when I’m not around

Asking “if you love me”

I love the way you make it sound

Calling you to see

Do I try too hard to make you smile?

To make us smile

I will keep calling you to see

If you’re sleeping, are you dreaming

If you’re dreaming, are you dreaming of me

I can’t believe you actually picked me

I thought that the world had lost it’s sway

It’s so hard sometimes

Then I fell in love with you

Then came you

And you took that away

It’s not so difficult

The world is not so difficult

You take away the old

Show me the new

And I feel like I can fly when I stand next to you

So while I’m on this phone

A hundred miles from home

I’ll take the words you gave me and send them back to you

I only want to see

If you’re OK when I’m not around

Asking “if you love me”

I love the way you make it sound

Calling you to see

Do I try too hard to make you smile?

To make us smile

"Jet Pack" - Eve 6

You’re the one stepping on the back of my shoes

You’re the one using me as a muse

You’re the one with the jet pack strapped to your back ready to go

It’s you and her and nobody else the lights are low and she’s so ready 

You’re already on your way to the door

You’re at the bar the tender gives you a free drink and winks, she’s perfect 

You sweat bullets, spill the drink and you leave 

Everyone leaves the party except a gorgeous twenty something, you turn and run

You call me up

You’re the one stepping on the back of my shoes

You’re the one using me as a muse

You’re the one with the jet pack strapped to your back ready to go

So the way you act, is it just an act or some strange courtship ritual

A habitual nervous reaction

Hey it’s just me, set yourself free, why don’t you let me know what’s going on

Inside your cluttered head 

You’re the one stepping on the back of my shoes

You’re the one using me as a muse

You’re the one with the jet pack strapped to your back ready to go

What the hell are you talking about is that what you would say 

If I were to wonder out loud would it make you turn away

Just a curious question

If it was you and me and nobody else would you want me to want to be ready to go

Would you want to take the lights down low

You’re the one stepping on the back of my shoes

You’re the one using me as a muse

You’re the one with the jet pack strapped to your back ready to go

Hey it’s just me, set yourself free, why don’t you let me know what’s going on

Hey it’s just me, set yourself free

"Unwell"- Matchbox 20

All day 

Staring at the ceiling 

Making friends with shadows on my wall 

All night 

Hearing voices telling me 

That I should get some sleep 

Because tomorrow might be good for something 

Hold on 

I’m feeling like I’m headed for a 

Breakdown 

I don’t know why 

I’m not crazy, I’m just a little unwell 

I know, right now you can’t tell 

But stay awhile and maybe then you’ll see 

A different side of me 

I’m not crazy, I’m just a little impaired 

I know, right now you don’t care 

But soon enough you’re gonna think of me 

And how I used to be 

Me 

Talking to myself in public 

Dodging glances on the train 

I know 

I know they’ve all been talking ‘bout me 

I can hear them whisper 

And it makes me think there must be something wrong 

With me 

Out of all the hours thinking 

Somehow 

I’ve lost my mind 

I’m not crazy, I’m just a little unwell 

I know, right now you can’t tell 

But stay awhile and maybe then you’ll see 

A different side of me 

I’m not crazy, I’m just a little impaired 

I know right now you don’t care 

But soon enough you’re gonna think of me 

And how I used to be 

I been talking in my sleep 

Pretty soon they’ll come to get me 

Yeah, they’re taking me away 

I’m not crazy, I’m just a little unwell 

I know, right now you can’t tell 

But stay awhile and maybe then you’ll see 

A different side of me 

I’m not crazy I’m just a little impaired 

I know, right now you don’t care 

But soon enough you’re gonna think of me 

And how I used to be 

Hey, how I used to be 

How I used to be, yeah 

Well I’m just a little unwell 

How I used to be 

How I used to be 

So hold me when I’m here
Right me when I’m wrong
Hold me when I’m scared
And love me when I’m gone
Everything I am
And everything in me
Wants to be the one
You wanted me to be
I’ll never let you down
Even if I could
I’d give up everything
If only for your good
So hold me when I’m here
Right me when I’m wrong
You can hold me when I’m scared
You won’t always be there
So love me when I’m gone

Straight Outta Compton (N.W.A.) - Nina Gordon

"Androgynous"- Joan Jett

Here comes Dick 

He’s wearing a skirt 

Here comes Jane 

You know she’s sporting a chain 

Same hair revolution 

Same build evolution 

Tomorrow who’s going to fuss 

And they love each other so 

Androgynous 

Closer than you know 

Love each other so 

Androgynous 

Well don’t get him wrong 

And don’t get him mad 

He might be a father 

But he sure ain’t a dad 

She don’t need 

Advice that they send to her 

She’s happy with the way she looks 

She’s happy with her gender 

And they love each other so 

Androgynous 

Closer than you know 

Love each other so 

Androgynous 

Mirror image see no damage 

See no evil at all 

Cupie dolls and urine stalls 

Will be laughed at the way 

You’re laughed at now 

Now something meets boy 

And something meets girl 

They both are the same 

They’re overjoyed in this world 

Same hair revolution, unisex, evolution 

Tomorrow who’s gonna fuss 

And tomorrow Dick is wearing pants 

Tomorrow Jane’s wearing a dress 

Future outcasts and a they don’t last 

And a today the people dress the way 

That they please 

The way they tried to do in the last century 

And they love each other so 

Androgynous 

Closer than you know 

Love each other so 

Androgynous 

Androgynous 

Androgynous 

Don’t you get it 

Androgynous

"Summerland"- Everclear

Let’s just drive your car 

We could drive all day 

Let’s just get the hell away from here 

For I am sick again 

Just plain sick to death 

Of the sound of my own voice 

We could leave behind 

Another wasted year 

Just get some cheap red wine 

And just go flying 

We could do the things 

All the things you wanted to 

No one cares about us anyway 

I think I lost my smile 

I think you lost yours too 

We have lost the power to make each other laugh 

Let’s just leave this place 

And go to Summerland 

Just a name on the map 

Sounds like heaven to me 

We could find a town - 

Be just how we want to be 

No one here really cares about us anyway 

We could find a place - 

Make it what we want it to be 

No one really gives a fuck about us anyway 

We could live - 

Live just like we want to live 

No one here really cares about us anyway 

We could be- 

Everything we want to be 

We could get lost in the Fall 

Glimmer Sparkle and Fade 

The Sparkle and Fade 

Fall Glimmer Sparkle and Fade 

Forget about our jobs at the record store 

Forget about all the losers that we know 

Forget about all the memories that keep you down 

Forget about them 

We could lose them in the 

Sparkle and Fade 

We could leave them behind 

In the Sparkle and Fade 

Yeah Sparkle and Fade 

Fall Glimmer Sparkle and Fade
