Kelly Z and "the Lot"

 

BLACK AND BLUE

She's just the girl who thinks that the world

Should give her diamonds and pearls she's that kind of girl

Oh yeah she's just like that

She cries at night cause she don't like to fight

when the money's tight And it's always tight

Oh yeah she's just like that

She can't see through her own black and blue

 

He's not a man who makes a stand

To help out his fellow man

Oh no, he's not like that

He works all day and he plays all night

Somehow this guy don't see the light

Oh no, he's not like that

He can't see through, he's too blind to see through

His own black and Blue is the color of love, black is the color of pain Put them together you get a lot of rain

 

I try so hard to get so far away from the shame

From playing that game

Oh yeah I don't want to be like that

I look for love so I can give love

I want to rise above this awful mess

Oh yes I want to be like that

I've got to see through, I want to see through, I'm trying so hard to see through my own black and

Blue is the color of love, black is the color of pain

You put them together you get a lot of rain.

 

JUST YOU

Here I stand alone but never lonely am I

For you have been my wings

And I finally learned to fly

And so I take this final stand and show the world who I am

And it’s all because of you It was always just you

 

I can and I will find my way through it still

Yes I’ve lost track of time but I always walked the line

For you showed me my soul when I’d no where else to go

And so I take this final stand and show the world what I am

And it’s all because of you, it was always just you

 

That broke me down and showed me what I feel inside

And lifted me up and held me so high

I tried so hard to feel you

I tried so hard to see you there

Now I know it’s true, I was looking at you

 

And my skies were clear on the days I felt you near

Some say I’ve been found but you’ve always been around

And so I take this final stand and show the world who I am

And it’s all because of you It was always just you

 

That broke me down and showed me what I feel inside

And lifted me up and held me so high

I tried so hard to feel you

I tried so hard to see you there

Now I know it’s true, I was always looking at you

 

TAKE THIS HEART

Take this heart, take it away from me

Take this soul get out of here just go

Take my heart

 

Cause baby you’ve taken the best of me

So why don’t you just take the rest of me

Take This Heart

 

Take these eyes, that cry cry for you everynight

Take these lips, that long long to long for your kiss

 

Cause baby you’ve taken the best of me

So why don’t you just take the rest of me

Take My Heart

 

You can have every piece of me baby, That’s what I said

You can have it all baby, That’s what I said

You can the rest of me baby not much left of me baby

Not much left inside of me

Take This Heart

 

Cause baby you’ve taken the best of me

So why don’t you just take the rest of me

Take My Heart

 

You can have every piece of me baby, That’s what I said

You can have it all baby, That’s what I said

You can have the rest of me baby not much left of me baby

Not much left inside of me

Take this heart

Take my heart

Take this heart

 

LIVING INSIDE HER

There it was living inside her

There it grew trapped deep inside her

There it was living inside her A memory

 

He took her in with his friendly face

With a smile so pretty it was trimmed with lace

How's a babe in the woods to know that the wolf ain't safe

No the wolf ain't safe

 

Come to me little girl into my grown-up world

Come be my little girl

I'll give you diamonds and pearls in this grown-up world

If you'll just be my little girl

 

There he was living inside her

Every breath every move he made was trapped inside her

It was all she could do to hold it inside her, a memory

 

I've been talking to you in rythmns you speak to me in rhymes

I'm not so good at puzzles I can't afford the time or the pain it takes to I've got to look into my very own eyes I will not be criticized

 

I'm just a little girl in this grown-up world

Where are all these diamonds and pearls that you promised me in this grown-up world and you promised to all the little girls.

 

LOVE HAS WINGS

If I said I loved you would you hold it against me

What if I just didn't care and left you alone just anywhere

Would you remember me or forget that I exist

Would you smile or would you cry

 

For I have wings to fly away from you

 

How would I handle it if you said let's call it quits

Would I just laugh at you and say I'm glad that we're through

Or would I call you every day hoping that you'd come my way

And say you loved me more than you knew

 

For you have wings to fly away from me

 

Blind and proud we hold love down

And try so hard not to make a sound

But love is free just like you and me to up and fly away

 

Love has wings to fly away from you

Love has wings to fly away

 

BROKEN MAN

One by one they left you there sitting on a breaking chair

One by one without a sound they left you falling to the ground

 

She felt you there she took your hand and with her heart she helped you stand

Knowing you were a broken man she gave her heart so you could stand

She heard you crying and she saw you dying

 

But all or nothing was your way so nothing always filled your day

She was all that all could be but nothing from you set her free.

She could not stop your crying, she could not stop your dying

 

So all in black she dressed for you her veil of sorrow showed the truth

Her drowning eyes were missing you but only she knew that she would follow you

Now she can't stop crying and she can't stop dying

She will follow you.

 

JOAN OF ARC

What was I thinking as a child growing up

That if I could just be tough I'd get by

What was I thinking with that young soul of mine

That alone all by myself I'd be fine

 

I always thought I had to be so brave and strong

To do my best and never do wrong

To hide my soul right next to my heart

And be just like Joan of Arc

 

What was I thinking when I rode my horse to war

Not knowing quite what for

 

I am so good with my sword I could strike you down if you come to near And with my sheild I am like a frozen man that can not love because of fear.

 

Cause I can hold my soul right next to my heart

And I can be just like Joan of Arc

What was I thinking when I held my breath so long

Just to catch it before it was gone.

 

I am so good with my sword I could

Cause I can hide my soul right next to my heart

And I could be Joan of Arc

What was I thinking

 

HAPPY GIRL

Baby take a look at me it's not hard to see

That I'm a happy girl

Well I lost at love my whole life long

But I ain't singing no sad songs

Cause I've been around this cold dark world

And I'm still a happy, I'm a happy girl

 

You're always talking to the others don't mind me baby I'm just another

Oh And if you see me crying crying just ignore me baby cause I'm not lying

Cause I've been around this cold dark world

I've always been a happy I'm a happy girl

I'm a happy I'm a happy girl

 

You stayed with me for just awhile and I gave you every smile

And I know that you're leaving me but you won't be hurting me

Cause I don't really care I know that all is fair in love and war and all we do

Baby I can, Baby I can, Baby I can smile without you.

 

So don't mind these tears running down, running down, running down,

running down, running down, they're running down my face

Well it's just your smile it broke my heart when you said it's best that we're apart

Well I guess it's back to the cold dark world

It's my place

Got to put on a face

And be a happy, be a happy girl

Cause I'm a happy, I'm happy Girl

Cause I'm a happy, I'm happy Girl

I'm a happy I'm happy Girl

Baby I can, Baby I can, Baby I can smile without you

 

BACK TO LA

All the memories my memory owns

All the places I called home

It turned my world inside out

Cause my eyes looked in but my heart stayed out

 

I was a dreaming fool in LA like so many who came her way

But I was dying with my dreams and living with lies

So I walked away and I closed my eyes

 

And I disappeared alone to find the dream I’d left behind

Somewhere through the years, to fight all the fears and cry the tears away And get back to LA

 

I’m on my way Back to LA

 

I remember a smile on my face

I remember I walked those street with grace

 

All the memories my memory owns

There’s just one place I call home

But it was always so easy to up and fly

It felt so hard just to stay and try

 

And I disappeared alone again

To find the dream I’d left behind

Somewhere through the years

I’m on my way back to LA

I won’t get in my way when I go back to LA

Yes I’m on my way back to LA

 

FRAGILE

So strong I stand in my daily game so much easier than this

So strong I stood against Goliath with my rock inside my fist

But here I stand so weakened by a feeling I've never known

For loving you and losing you has made me so alone

 

Just one more night hold me close and I'll let you go

I'm fragile tonight but I'll be okay in the morning light

Yes I'm so fragile tonight

 

I have won every war that has come my way

And I can find a sunny sky in every cloudy day

 

Just one more night hold me close

And I'll find the strength and let you go

I'm fragile tonight but I'll be okay in the morning light

Yes I'm so fragile

 

Just one more gentle touch cause I'm needing you so much

Give me all of your sweet kisses that's what I'll be missing most of all

 

I have lost this battle that I've waged inside my heart

But I'll retreat tomorrow before I'm ripped apart

 

Just one more night hold me close and I'll find the strength and I'll let you go, I'll let you go

I'm fragile tonight but I can see the morning light

I'm fragile tonight but I'll be okay in the morning light

I'm fragile tonight but I'll be strong in the morning light

 

CLOSE MY EYES

Bright Lights they shine when you walk into the room

But the darkness covers us all too soon

And I hold my breath everyday just to make it through the night

I hold on so very tight

 

And I close my eyes if I want to be real

I close my eyes if I want to feel

I close my eyes when I'm looking at you

I close my eyes to get through

 

The sun it shines bright on me everyday

And the moon glows warm each night

But I'll live in darkness til I make it right

 

And I close my eyes if I want to be real

I close my eyes if I want to feel

I close my eyes when I'm looking at you

I close my eyes to get through

 

You take something to calm you down

I'm sitting here going round and round

Waiting for your anger to strike me down

And it strikes me down

 

I'm always waiting for my own return

I'm always waiting for this house to burn down

I'm going to burn it down

 

And I close my eyes if I want to be real

I close my eyes if I want to feel

I close my eyes when I'm looking at you

I close my eyes to get through
