Kelly Z and "the Lot"

DRIVE

 

All your life you drive alone

You leave behind every home

You run away from all things deep

And fight too much in your sleep

How far you gonna drive that car

 

Your fear is stronger than you know

That is why you always go

Faster Faster than you should

You gotta be first better than good

How far you gonna drive that car

 

How far, how far, how far you going drive that car

You got no where to go but how far you gonna drive that car

 

Behind the wheel is a lonely place

Far away from the human race

I hope one day you find a home

Cause nobody likes to be alone

How far you gonna drive that car

 

How far, how far, how far you going drive that car

You got no where to go but how far you gonna drive that car

 

I think of you when I’m feeling down

And the days when I made that sound

Running from all things deep

And fighting too much in my sleep

How far you gonna drive that car

 

Life is funny the way it works

You never know what’s gonna hurt

Don’t be afraid to live each day

Cause fear will take it all away

How far you gonna drive that car

 

How far, how far, how far you going drive that car

You got no where to go but how far you gonna drive that car

You got no where to go but how far you gonna drive that car

STRONG GIRL

 

The rumor has it that you lied

The rumor has it that you made me cry

Everyone bites their tongue

And I’m the only one left here not knowing why

 

It’s time to walk away from all the things you say

It’s time to strike out on my own

Before the sun will rise, I will dry my eyes

And I will walk out in this world

A Strong Girl

 

The rumor has it that nothings right

The rumor has it that I’ve seen the light

I must agree it’s right in front of me

The rumor has it and the rumor’s right

 

It’s been wrong, I’ll be moving on

It’s been tough, I’ve had enough

Cause I’m a strong girl

 

The rumor has it that I’ve left the room

The rumor has it I won’t be back soon

Cause I’d rather be dead than stick around with you

The rumor has it The rumor’s true

 

It’s time to walk away from all the things you say

It’s time to strike out on my own

Before the sun will rise, I will dry my eyes

And I will walk out in this world

A Strong Girl

UNSURE

 

I've come here to ask you dear I need you to burn down my fears

I got about the contents of your heart You tell me you love me and all the above but I got to make sure that this is love before I lose my site and I go blind

 

How can I be sure of you

How can I be sure of you

 

You're so cute and your my man and I'm going to the everything I can to keep this, keep it going on. But I know something aint right when you come home late every night baby I'm no fool I can see the light

 

How can I be sure of you

How can I be sure of you

 

How can I be sure

 

You told me you love me with all your heart

You told me you love me from the start

You told me you love me with all your heart

 

Cause I got a feeling that I've been wronged and that something has been going on for such a long long long long time. You tell me I'm imagining that woman's voice when the telephone rings at 3am and you pick up the phone.

 

How can I be sure of you

How can I be sure of you

 

How can I be sure

GREEN TOADS

 

Black eyed monsters green toads and such

Things that little girls are afraid to touch

Your mama told you be a good girl

Your daddy promised you the world

 

What you got there down deep inside

What you got there that you need to hide

What you got there deep in your soul

Is it Love, Is it Love, Is it Love

 

You keep building building those walls

The higher they are the harder they fall

Let's light a match and burn em down

It's time for you to come around

 

What you got there down deep inside

What you got there that you need to hide

What you got there deep in your soul

Is it Love, Is it Love, Is it Love

 

So you're feeling lonely and confused and feeling used up and you're trying to find yourself, well I'm just trying to help. I like to say the glass is half full you like to say it's empty and that's bull.

 

So open your eyes and maybe you'll see

That you have never been free

And if you can't find the words to say

You best get on your knees and pray.

 

What you got there down deep inside

What you got there that you need to hide

What you got there deep in your soul

Is it Love, Is it Love, Is it Love

 

Is it Love, Is it Love, Is it Love

REDBONE

 

Somebody stole my heart away I thought it was you.

Somebody held me tight, it felt like you

Gave my love to the man of my dreams he looked like you

He spoke of always loving me he talked like you

 

Now I'm standing in the pouring rain got no where to go.

No cover to keep me dry feeling oh so blue.

 

All I do is I look in your eyes I see it's true

Yes the man who owns my heart used to be you

What happened to you

So if you see that man of mine won't you bring home

But don't you bother knocking on my door if you're alone

 

Now I'm standing in the pouring rain got nothing to do

No lover to keep me dry I'm feeling oh so blue

 

He walked through the door and looked at me

Kept on walking straight to me

Grabbed me by the heart held me in his arms

He kissed me wth a passion I never knew

Was it just a dream or was it you

 

Standing still in the pouring rain waiting for my man

That you used to be when we held hands

When we touched, when we kissed, when we made love that was my man

Standing still in the pouring rain doing the best I can

**********************

 

THE LIGHT

 

I was young many years ago Looking for what I didn’t know

Found a man with a pretty smile and he kept me happy for a little while

Turns out that he was no good and I didn’t do what I should

I fell in love with a bad bad man Just trying to do the best I can

 

I see the Light

 

Everyday I used to think of him trying to make his love begin

He was always on my mind but he didn’t give, give me the time

Cause he had himself another girl, he had himself another world

And I was left out in the cold Man this life is getting old

 

I see the light

 

Mama told me to be the best not to be like all the rest

To hold on to myself and get up strong if I fell

Next time I won’t get it all wrong I won’t sing the same old song

I’ll fall in love with a good good man and keep on doing the best I can

 

I see the light

*************

 

TIRED

 

I’m tired, so tired, tired of being alone

I’m tired, so tired of having no one to call my own

I’m tired, so tired, I’m tired of being alone.

 

I’m lost, so lost, lost without love in my life

I’m lost, so lost and I don’t see no one in sight

I’m lost without love, lost without love in my life

 

There was a time I thought I was happy,

A time I thought I was cool

Running around like nobody business acting like a fool

 

But I’m lost so lost lost without love in my life

I’m lost and alone and can’t see nobody in sight

 

I had good love in front of me but I couldn’t see

I was trying so hard to make sure that I was free

 

I’m blue so blue just wanna find a love that’s true

Cause I’m tired of being lost, I’m tired of being blue So Blue

*****************

 

NOBODY HERE BUT ME

 

I've walked these streets so many times, I've paid my dues, I got some fines

Cried a river over spilt milk, I did a lot of things that left some guilt

And I tried to blame those years before, but I know that I closed every door

I know it’s me that’s brings me down, It’s my noise that makes that sound

 

Aint nobody here, aint nobdy here, aint nobody here but me

 

You know sometimes it’s hard to get fresh air when disappointment lives in the air

It’s hard to breath on those smoggy days but only I can make it go away

And I tried and I’ve tried but I must confide, it’s so much easier to run and hide

But pulling the covers over my head is like one step away from being dead

 

Aint nobody here, aint nobdy here, aint nobody here but me

 

Nobody here but me baby……Nobody here but..

I got my family, my friends and family but still aint nobody here but me.

 

So I walk down that bumpy road there's times I carry a heavy load

But that’s the way life's meant to be and only I can set me free

My strength is there just not always that strong but I’ll get there no matter how long

It takes to be the girl I was you know the girl I am I am because

 

Aint nobody here, aint nobdy here, aint nobody here but me

Nobody here but me baby………………………….

 

I got my family, my friends and family but still aint nobody here but me.

 

EXTRA VERSE

I’ve got so much water under my bridge It’s hard to remember being that kid

That looked at life through a crystal ball And climbed every tree after taking a fall

I know she’s there I can feel her smile she comes alive inside of me every once in a while

It’s time to bring her home to stay cause that’s the only way

******************

 

FAIR

 

I’m gonna learn to walk again,

I’m gonna learn to talk again

I’m gonna stand on my own again

I’m gonna find my truth again

 

Cause your love was never fair

Nothing you ever shared

I know that you never cared for me

 

I’m gonna learn to smile again

I’m gonna learn to laugh again

I’m gonna be myself again

I’m gonna find my truth again

 

Cause your love was never fair

Nothing you ever shared

I know that you never cared for me

 

So I’m gonna fly away from you as far and as fast as my wings can move.

 

I’m gonna learn to live again

I’m gonna learn to really sing again

I’m gonna fall in love again

I’m gonna fall in love again

 

Cause your love was never fair

Nothing you ever shared

I know that you never cared for me

 

So I’m gonna fly away from you
