She's Trying

You know, you brought your girl up well
So well that everyone can always tell
That you'd had some work to do
Thought she'd get the best of you

I'm glad, that you never gave up on her
Shut the door, sent her away
You didn't know what else to say
But you loved her

You knew, that she'd have to go
And taught her all the things she never wanted to
Know because she already knew everything
Didn't she?

And so, you kicked her out into
The bright light and of course it started a fight
But it would be the last
Because she's

Tryin', She's tryin'
Tryin' hard to do what you taught her to
She's tryin, she's tryin'
Tryin' hard to be what you want her to

You know, you brought your girl up well
So well the day she came and told you
She fell in love and packed her bags
You hid your smile, didn't laugh

You sat her down and told her the rules in love
"Watch your back and trust no one
And most of all just don't forget,
Get a pre-nup"

And then, when she went away
She came runnin' back the very next day
You didn't tell her that you told her so
Even though you

Knew that, she'd have to skate and break
Her own leg and of course you'd be there to pick her up
It'll be enough
Because she's

Tryin', She's tryin'
Tryin' hard to do what you taught her to
She's tryin, she's tryin'
Tryin' hard to be what you want her to

You know, you brought your girl up well
So well, that even though she brings through hell
You figured it was worth it
Even though it wasn't perfect

I'm glad that you never gave up on her
Shut the door, sent her away
You didn't know what else to say
But you loved her

You knew that she'd have to go
And taught her all the things she never wanted to
Know because she already knew everything
Didn't she?

And so, you kicked her out into
The bright light and of course it started a fight
But it would be the last
Because she's

Tryin', She's tryin'
Tryin' hard to do what you taught her to
She's tryin, she's tryin'
Tryin' hard to be what you want her to
Lady Luck

When the waves come crashin' down on heaven (She will be there)
When the skies send thunder through the horizon and the rain keeps
fallin'
Do you believe in truth or in fantasy (Said she will be there)
Don't forget he risked it all for one last chance at goin' somewhere

On his back he lies awake and he's down again (Is it all over?)
Lookin' up the one he trusts, his beautiful but nowhere to be found
Have you seen his lady call her, "Lady Luck"? (Said she will be here)
Snake eyes, smile is devilish, callin' out he sees her then she fades

Now he wants to know where did she go?
Now he wants to know where has she gone?
Now he wants to know where did she go?

There was a time when all his dreams were in his hands (Now he's spinning)
Lucky charms and one eyed jacks won't bring it back the writings on the wall
And the day when he believed in everything (Now it crumbled)
All the cracks he's starin' at belong to him but a long time ago

Now he wants to know where did she go?
Now he wants to know where has she gone?
Now he wants to know where did she go?
And seems to remember when he was stronger
The grass was greener, the air was clearer
The sun shone brighter and he wasn't frightened
Everything counted, nothing mattered
She a vision, that he created
Held onto but now she's gone

When the minutes drag like all eternity (Who will be there?)
When the black and white pictures fade to a dirty brown and curl at the
edges
Does he believe in fate or reality (Can he reach her?)
Now his wall is crashin' down on heaven and yes she is gone

Now he wants to know where did she go?
Now he wants to know where has she gone?
Now he wants to know where did she go?
Now he wants to know where has she gone?
Now he wants to know where did she go?
ALL MINE Truly Comfortable

I woke up early on a Friday night
My head was spinnin' from the neon light
Took pills and whiskey just to ease my pain
My tears are fallin' down like acid rain drops
Ain't got no one that I can call my own
I do my talking on the telephone
I get my comfort any way I can
Don't get no love from any girl or man

Ain't got no one that I can call my own
I do my talkin' on the telephone
Truly comfortable, truly comfortable
I've never been so
I've never been so
I've never been so
I've never been so

I hear the music on the radio
I watch the people as they come and go
Another day goes by, I stayed at home
I got your picture but I'm all alone
Look in the mirror and I see myself
The perfect picture of my fading health
No one left who wants to look me up
Go to the kitchen and I drink a cup

Ain't got no one that I can call my own
I do my talkin' on the telephone
Truly comfortable, truly comfortable
I've never been so
I've never been so
I've never been so
I've never been so

Stepped to the window on a Friday night
This time around I'll take a different flight
I took my chances any way I could
I tried my hardest but it's just no good
Look at the pictures strewn across the floor
I don't believe that I can take much more
I pull the covers way above my head
The ceiling crumbles all around my bed

Ain't got no one that I can call my own
I do my talkin' on the telephone
Truly comfortable, truly comfortable
I've never been so
I've never been so
I've never been so
I've never been so
Shelley

Why are you listening to all the things they tell you everyday?
Why are you listening, what happened to your own mind anyway?
Why are you listening to their advice on what to watch and do?
Why are you listening, has your mind been overrun- what do I do?

I don't know how they pulled you fast and buried all the trace of your past
I don't know how you left so fast-I really hope that this won't last

Oh Shelley
Oh Shelley
Oh Shelley
Oh Shelley listen to me

What are you doing? It's been too long, I never even seen you
What are you doing? You're a different girl but I don't know who
What are you doing? Fall asleep and disappear for days
What are you doing? Come back flying in a total haze

I don't know how they pulled you fast and buried all the trace of your past
I don't know how you left so fast-I really hope that this won't last

Oh Shelley
Oh Shelley
Oh Shelley
Oh Shelley listen to me

What are you thinking? I suspect you're losing it for good
What are you thinking? Promise I would save you if I could
What are you thinking? I probably don't even want to know
What are you thinking? Please just say goodbye before you go

Oh Shelley
Oh Shelley
Oh Shelley
Oh Shelley listen to me

I Did It For The Toys

Santa kissed me under the mistletoe
Tasted like eggnog and it was gross
Said he was lonely and it had been a while
The elves run frantic when they see that look in his eyes
He sat me down and went on and on
Wouldn't shut up about how Mrs. Claus had gone
He said the plumber must've done something right
He fixed her pipes then she paid him back all through the night

Fa la la la, fa la la la
Fa la la la, fa la la la

Santa kissed me under the mistletoe
I kept on wondering how far this would go
We talked and drank until it was light
Then the bartender kicked us out 'cause we got into a fight
But I kept thinking of this swag for free Besides the old geezer needs
some company
Well I've been broke this year it wouldn't be so bad
I hate to admit it but he's the best I've ever had

Fa la la la, fa la la la
Fa la la la, fa la la la
Fa la la la, fa la la la

Santa kissed me and I kissed him back but I did it for the toys
Figured I could get something more than I did from other boys
Santa kissed me and I kissed him back but I did it for the toys
Smiled at me and wanted to see if I would

Santa's a pervert you can tell by his smile
Or check the NAMBLA membership locked in his files
That big red suit and jolly face a disguise
He only does it for the joys of little kids bouncing on his thighs
He drives me crazy now and he calls me all the time
I'm gonna dump him as soon as I get what's mine
Guess I should really reveal my family ties
He won't get a clue so I hit him with a matzo ball right between the
eyes

Fa la la la, fa la la la
Fa la la la, fa la la la
Fa la la la, fa la la la

Santa kissed me and I kissed him back but I did it for the toys
Figured I could get something more than I did from other boys
Santa kissed me and I kissed him back but I did it for the toys
Smiled at me and wanted to see if I would
Santa kissed me and I kissed him back but I did it for the toys
Figured I could get something more than I did from other boys
Santa kissed me and I kissed him back but I did it for the toys
Smiled at me and wanted to see if I would
What a loser!
