on my own

And now I’m all alone again,
Nowhere to turn, no one to go to
Without a home, without a friend,
Without a face to say hello to
And now the night is near
Now I can make believe he’s here

Sometimes I walk alone at night
When everybody else is sleeping
I think of him and then I’m happy
With the company I’m keeping
The city goes to bed
And I can live inside my head

On my own
Pretending he’s beside me
All alone
I walk with him til morning
Without him
I feel his arms around me
And when I lose my way I close my eyes
And he has found me

In the rain, the pavement shines like silver
All the lights are misty in the river
In the darkness, the trees are full of starlight
And all I see is him and me forever and forever

And I know it’s only in my mind
That I’m talking to myself and not to him
And although I know that he is blind
Still I say, there’s a way for us

I love him
But when the night is over
He is gone
The river’s just a river
Without him,
The world around me changes
The trees are bare and everywhere
The streets are full of strangers

I love him
But every day I’m learning
All my life
I’ve only been pretending
Without me
His world will go on turning
A world that’s full of happiness
That I have never known

I love him
I love him
I love him
But only on my own

vanished

Not a day, not a dime,
Not a moment is returned
Nice of me, good of you
Nice of us to think about it
Good of them, nice of it
Good enough to kind of cloud it
Not a word, not a thought
Not a thing done about it

I vanished Friday and appeared on Sunday
Only to regain my strength and do it again
I vanished Friday and appeared on Sunday
Only to regain my strength and do it again

Didn’t stay, didn’t try,
Got ugly and terse
Nice of me, good of you
To break it down first
Righteousness ain’t the trip
The trap is concern
Wait around for rewards
That’ll probably hurt

I vanished Friday and appeared on Sunday
Only to regain my strength and do it again
I vanished Friday and appeared on Sunday
Only to regain my strength and do it again, yeah

Yeah
Don’t expect an outpouring of interest for integrity
Don’t expect a praise parade
Let me grapple with the gratitude
Lack of faith on a rainy day, rainy day

I vanished Friday and appeared on Sunday
Only to regain my strength and do it again
I vanished Friday with the best of intentions
Only to regain my strength and do it again

I vanished Friday and appeared on Sunday
Only to regain my strength and do it again
I vanished Friday with the best of intentions
Only to regain my strength and do it again
(And do it again) do it again
(and do it again) and do it again
And do it again

Big surprise, I didn’t see it coming
All your lies caught me with my pants down
Pick it up, I hope you’re good at running
‘Cos you don’t wanna see how ugly I can be

Lie awake, planning my revenge out
Big mistake to mess around with me
Don’t you know I got a reputation to uphold
So, baby, call me

Psycho – it’s a compliment
Crazy – I invented it
Oh, write me down in history
As the ex-girlfriend
Chalk it up to lessons learned
Play with fire, you’ll get burned
I gave you all the best that I could be
It’s only fair you get the worst of me
The worst of me

Remember when you used to call me ‘honey’
And now it seems, I’m sticky more than sweet
Just admit, I’m not what you expected
Tougher than you ever thought I could be, baby

Psycho – it’s a compliment
Crazy – I invented it
Oh, write me down in history
As the ex-girlfriend
Chalk it up to lessons learned
Play with fire, you’ll get burned
I gave you all the best that I could be
It’s only fair you get the worst of me

And I’m not so bad
But you make me sad
And I just had to get you back
So, call me

Psycho – it’s a compliment
Crazy – I invented it
Oh, write me down in history
As your very psycho ex-girlfriend

Psycho – it’s a compliment
Crazy – I invented it
Oh, write me down in history
As the ex-girlfriend
Chalk it up to lessons learned
Play with fire, you’ll get burned
I gave you all the best that I could be
I gave you all the best that I could be
It’s only fair you get the worst of me
