Lyrics to some of the songs I particularly like...

Tonight and the Rest of My Life
by Nina Gordon
Down to the earth I fell With dripping wings Heavy things won't fly And the sky might catch on fire And burn the axis of the world That why I prefer a sunless sky To the glittering and stinging in my eyes
Oh I feel so light This is all I wanna feel tonight Oh I feel so light Tonight and the rest of my life
Gleaming in the dark sea I'm as light as air Floating there breathlessly When the dream dissolves I open up my eyes I realize that Everything is shortly seen Weightlessness is passing over me
Oh I feel so light This is all I wanna feel tonight Oh I feel so light Tonight and the rest of my life Tonight and the rest of my life
Everything is waves and stars The universe is resting in my arms I feel so light This is all I wanna feel tonight I feel so light Tonight and the rest of my life
Oh I feel so light This is all I wanna feel tonight Oh I feel so light Tonight and the rest of my life Tonight and the rest of my life


Hold On To Me
by Nina Gordon
We're the same and you don't even know it We're afraid and we try not to show it And you're tired and I am too So there's only one thing you can do
You've gotta hold me And tell me what you need And don't be afraid of what you're feeling When you know me When I never wanna leave you Just hold on to me
When we're apart I still feel together I still believe in a thing called forever But we're drifting apart it's true And it's breaking my heart in two
We'll drive away where no one can find us It's time to leave those dark days behind us In my dreams, it's always you So there's only one thing we can do
Horses In The City
by Nina Gordon
They walk the horses home at night right by my window They pull their carriages along busy city streets It's from another time It's like a lullaby But I don't think that I can sleep tonight So I count the street lights I count the stars I make a wish and wonder where you are I wonder if I'll live long enough to feel again
Chorus: Help me cause I'm falling out of grace I hang my head and hide my face I don't know what it is I just feel out of place Like horses in the city
I played the game I dropped the ball I lost another friend I gained a future But I can't see where the future ends Write a letter or write a song But once again my voice just comes out wrong tonight I wonder if I'll live long enough to sing again (chorus)
But they don't seem frightened As the cars go speeding by So why am I so terrified to close my eyes tonight? I'm just afraid there's no time, no time this time
They walk the horses home at night right by my window They pull their carriages along busy city streets I wonder if they'll live to run without the reins again (chorus)
2003
by Nina Gordon
Hey baby, Why'd you turn away? I was about to say that Something maybe I thought would make you smile At least for a little while Oh well baby that's the way it goes Right from my head to my toes And your the first to know That I've got a brilliant plan I hope you understand
Chorus: I wanna leave in 2003 I wanna see what the future can bring to me I wanna and when I do I'll meet you here my darling And when I'm free I'll be waiting where I said I would be Oh my love, will you wait for me?
What we found is such a precious thing And that's what I'm trying to sing but Before I lose my nerve I better write down these words Cause I don't know what you've heard (chorus)
And you know that I won't change my mind I made a promise to be true Let them say that it's a selfish game But I won't play with anyone but you (chorus)

Too Slow To Ride
by Nina Gordon
From the moment I arrived Til the day that I died I was selfish and slow Too slow to ride by your side But I was so afraid That I began to fade
Chorus: Now another bright has turned to gray And someone elseís light will take my place Though Iím getting used to the aftertaste You know I miss your eyes I miss your face
And when the sun went dead And the moon was up ahead Then I finally figured out what I should have said to you then And no one is to blame But weíll never be the same (chorus)
Thereís no use in trying I canít be what I was† I canít be what I was
Now another bright has turned to gray Someone elseís light will take my place Though Iím getting used to the aftertaste And though Iím getting used to the aftertaste Although Iím getting used to the aftertaste You know I miss your eyes I miss your face
Fade To Black
by Nina Gordon
And it feels like a movie Cause I've done something heavy And now I'm all alone And you know I like it Well I wish I were older I could hold my liquor Then I'd blow your cover instead of my own
Chorus: Cause there's nothing I can do To prove that I still love you And I think I hear my friends through the walls I'm gonna fade to black Think I'm gonna fade to black And I swear we're gonna take it back But it's just no use What's done is done I can't blame anyone but me
Everybody's out there without me They're not even talking about me Flying out of the city And they don't even miss me (chorus)
Four days in the haze Of the biggest mistake I've ever made And now I've gotta get out of this place Cause everybody knows Even the ones who don't
Fade to black I'm gonna fade to black Let's take it back But it's just no use What's done is done I can't blame anyone but me But me I'm gonna fade to black

Said Sadly
A duet w/ Nina Gordon (Veruca Salt) and James Iha (Smashing Pumpkins)

Loneliness Is Worse
by Veruca Salt
When you've had enough When you've got it bad enough When you can't let go When it comes to blows And you start to overflow But you can't get home
It's a subtle kind of cruel It taps my spine Here I'm drawing a line I'm asking you please
Chorus: Don't you wanna be Happy with me Don't you wanna be Happy with me I'm afraid if you don't come around soon I'll turn sadder than you ever were Loneliness is worse We've gotta try
December's all alone And he's calling me on the phone But he sounds so cold He says he loves me so How would I ever know? So words grow old
It's a vicious kind of catch It sides me blind Now I'm out of my mind I wanna scream (chorus)
Love liked me long ago It had a way of making everyone the same How the angels must laugh inside With me screaming with you Needing you here this way (chorus)
Volcano Girls
by Veruca Salt
Leave me lying here Cause I don't want to go Leave me lying here Cause I don't want to go Leave me lying here Cause I don't want to go
Tell me, tell me what you really want from me You've gotta let me know I'm fallin off and I need you terribly One down and one to go
Chorus: Volcano girls we really can't be beat Wind us up and watch us blow Now and then we fail and we admit defeat We're falling off we are watered down Leave me lying here Cause I don't want to go Leave me lying here Cause I don't want to go
A million miles of running and I hit the wall I bounce back and run some more If this is it, I'm giving up and calling quits So get down and meet me on the floor Way to go way to flip off everyone I'm stealing thunder Then I tried to bolt Well I can stand a little pity now and then We're falling off I am watered down fully grown
(instrumental)
Go I don't wanna go I don't wanna go I don't wanna go I don't wanna go
I told you bout the seether before You know the one who's neither or nor Well here's another clue if you please The seether's Louise One, two, three, whoa Leave me lying here Cause I don't wanna go Leave me lying here Cause I don't want to go Leave me lying here Cause I don't want to go Leave me leave me leave me Go I don't wanna go
