Go On 02:24
You've been hanging 'round, watching me Through your whiskey glass Always trying to catch my eye No subtlety or class You seem to think there's nothing else That I would rather do Than get picked up and taken home By the likes of you So go on Leave me alone Leave me alone You've been hanging 'round, heckling me Speaking to my chest I don't need your compliments To boost my confidence Please go away, you're bothering me Cramping up my style And the only number that I've got for you Is for the cab that you ought to dial So go on Leave me alone Leave me alone You better catch another tide You ain't taking me for a ride Not even in another life And this me being nice You've been hanging 'round bothering me Trying to get me drunk You could try to buy the whole damn bar But you'd still be out of luck Now maybe some girls fall for this But they must be blind and cheap Can't a girl just have a drink in peace Without fighting off some creep? So go on Leave me alone Leave me alone Leave me alone

When You Cry 02:32
Fill up a barrel with those old gipsy tears To tide you through the driest time of year Read to your lover from your old book of lies 'Cause no one wants to see you when you cry No one wants to see you when you cry Go out alone, just get out of the house Find a tree and hide among its boughs Fill your busy head with swarm of buzzing flies 'Cause no one wants to see you when you cry No one wants to see you when you cry It's no wonder that you feel this way I know it's hard to watch the sun go swinging by each day Catch a cloud and lie under its shade Let the rain erase all the tears from your face Dance when there's music, laugh at each joke Never let your mother know you're broke Blame it on the weather every time that you sigh 'Cause no one wants to see you when you cry No one wants to see you when you cry When you're feeling bad Tip down your hat In that hazy blue Drain it down with booze But whatever you do You keep the worst of it for you 'Cause no one wants to see you when you cry No one wants to see you when you cry

Oh, I get home, no one's waiting for me Gotta shake these devils off my feet Gotta dig my garden, gotta make some cash Gotta take out the trash Oh, lord, turn on the bloody heat This house is so cold and I can't sleep The sun is shining but the windows are small Wanna kick down the wall Time's moving fast, this apple's rotten Well did I learn from the past, or have I just forgotten? My heart's gone south and I'm wearing black Spinning 'round at the edge of the tracks Spinning 'round at the edge of the tracks Oh, I'm downtown, caged in walls of concrete Watching animals that frequent this menagerie While my eyes keep searching for a UFO To pick me up and go 'Cause I'm so tired of the greys and the browns And the empty business suits always rushing around And why should I run right through this life When a body's so warm and a kiss is so nice? Time's moving fast, this apple's rotten Well did I learn from the past, or have I just forgotten? My heart's gone south and I'm wearing black Spinning 'round at the edge of the tracks Spinning 'round at the edge of the tracks Time's moving fast, this apple's rotten Well did I learn from the past, or have I just forgotten? It's all gone south and I'm wearing black Spinning 'round at the edge of the tracks Spinning 'round at the edge of the tracks

First Bird 02:51
The first bird flew out of her cage tonight She tore a hole up in the big blue sky And that's why clouds blew in to cover it And that's the reason the weather turned to shit The cracks they grow much longer every day They grin down at me from the plastering They're always spitting dust into my eyes And that's the reason why tonight I cried There's always time for the first time to lose There's always the first bird who will fly loose But that don't make me feel okay That don't make me feel okay That don't make me feel okay No, that don't make me feel okay

I cry myself awake each morning Days seem easier with that beginning Live my loneliness in every tragic little dream So by mid morning, I don't feel a thing When I talk to you tonight I will act like I'm alright I won't bring you down I won't bring you down here with me Drift through the afternoon's distractions While away the hours with no intentions Listen to the songs we used to sing on repeat So by the evening, I wonder where I've been When I talk to you tonight I will act like I'm alright I won't bring you down I won't bring you down here with me I don't know how to live without you I smoke and drink much more than I ought to Whiskey helps me see you any time of the day Darlin', why are you so far, far away? When I talk to you tonight I will act like I'm alright I won't bring you down I won't bring you down I won't bring you down here with me

Oh, honey take him, go on and have him You can have his roving eye You'd be doing me a service You'd be freeing up my time I'm so tired of playing all these foolish little games So step right up and take my man I'm moving on to greater things I've seen you gals whisper 'round town about this brown-eyed handsome man I've seen y'all flirt and flutter your skirts and I've seen him tipping his hat I know he ain't been truthful I don't need eyes at the back of my head So come on, gals, have at this prize, 'cause otherwise I'm better off dead Oh, honey take him, go on and have him You can have his roving eye You'd be doing me a service You'd be freeing up my time I'm so tired of playing all these foolish little games So step right up and take my man I'm moving on to greater things He thinks I haven't noticed or connected all the dots The lipstick on the collar; all the birthdays he forgot Do you really think you're winning? Well, sister I'm no cat Gonna pack his bags and send him off and wish you kittens good luck with that Oh, honey take him, go on and have him You can have his roving eye You'd be doing me a service You'd be freeing up my time I'm so tired of playing all these foolish little games So step right up and take my man I'm moving on to greater things I'm tired of his cheating and I'm sick of all his lies And the nights alone when he don't come home, saying he was out with the guys I'm woman enough to know this and I'm woman enough to leave And lock his sorry ass outside, since he's found another place to sleep Oh, honey take him, go on and have him You can have his roving eye You'd be doing me a service You'd be freeing up my time I'm so tired of playing all these foolish little games So step right up and take my man I'm moving on to greater things
