Fire on the floor

Love is a fever
And is burning me alive
It can't be tamed or satisfied
There is no mercy
For the fallen or for the weak
Love is a nasty word to speak
 
I don't wanna love him anymore
He's nothing like the man I loved before
But the pain gets real comfortable
When it's all ya got
 
Ashes and smoke they can't compete
Not even hell can take the heat
And I be sliding off of my seat
For his flame
 
His love is like fire on the floor
It's got me running for the door
But I'll be crawling back for more
Of his fire on the floor
It don't matter what ya say
You can't survive it, there ain't no way
So tonight I'm gonna stay
And play with his fire
On the floor
Wanna play with his fire
On the floor child, child
 
This kinda love
Don't need no bed or satin sheets
Nothing soft, nothing soft or sweet to drink
Love is a lesson, you were born to never learn
And your soul will beg to burn
 
I don't wanna love him anymore
He's nothing like the man I loved before
And there's a sign above the door
Saying no way out
 
Ashes and smoke they can't compete
Not even hell can take the heat
And I be sliding off of my seat
For his flame
 
His love is like fire on the floor
It's got me running for the door
But I keep crawling back for more
Of his fire on the floor
It don't matter what ya say
You can't survive it, there ain't no way
So tonight I'm gonna stay
And play with his fire
On the floor
I'm gonna stay and play with his fire
On the floor
I'm gonna play with his fire
On the floor
 

No Place Like Home

It's been a long time on the road
Without a soul to call my own
I'm tired of talking to the cards
I miss the flowers in the yard
 
There's no place like home
No place like home
There's no place I'd rather be than home
 
I'm gonna move out of the street
Stack some stones maybe grow some wheat
Build a fire for a little heat
Have someone curl up at my feet
 
There's no place like home
No place like home
There's no place I'd rather be than home
 
I wanna hang up some pretty things
From my suitcase full of dreams
Maybe a letter or an old post card
Or that paper star stole from a jar
 
There's no place like home
No place like home
There's no place I'd rather be than home
 
The sweetest words I ever heard
Is welcome home
It's been a long and dusty road
 
There's a place that's meant for us
Full of faith, hope, love and trust
I'll keep trudging up the road
But someday I'll be going home
 
There's no place like home
No place like home
There's no place I'd rather be than home
Home, home, home
Home
 

Setting Me Free

Hello, hello
are you in there, child?
Leave that party dress
and your suicidal smile
Hello, hello
I've come to see it done
the stripes across your face
and the battles that he's won
 
Don't tell me to hide
I've run from living all my life
 
I'm setting me free
blood, sweat, and tears
I've been so desperate all these years
now I'm taking my bones,
and leaving your ring
this house made of glass
is shattering
I'm setting me free
 
Hello, hello
I hear the sirens roar
coming round the bend
like a thousand times before
Hello, hello
don't you give up the fight
like a beat-down dog
who's forgotten how to bite
 
Don't tell me it's wrong
I've only come to be your friend
 
I'm setting me free
blood, sweat, and tears
I've been so desperate all these years
Don't tell me I'm blind
it's you who won't see
the woman I am
the fighter in me
I'm setting me free
 
I'm laughing, I'm crying
I'm living, I'm dying
I'm changing the power in me
I'm setting me free!
 
Like fire and water
I'm mother, I'm daughter
I'm changing the power in me
 
I'm setting me free
blood, sweat, and tears
I've been so desperate all these years
I'm taking my balls,
and leaving your ring
your house made of glass
is shattering
I'm setting me free
 
Hello, hello...?
 

Love is a Lie

Love is a lie
Sucking you dry
Love's not a friend
Until the end

You can call it a game
You can choose your own name
When it's stuck in the vein
There's no greater pain

I've got a bell but no sound
I've got a horse but no hound
And I know I'm, know I'm...

Love is a lie
Love is a lie
Love is a lie
And I know I'm going down

Now there was a time
Love was blowing my mind
Not a tear, not a doubt
'Til I figured it out

Now I'm madder than hell
Love is wagging its tail
I holler, I cry
Love is a lie

I've got a bell with no ring
I've got a whip but no sting
And I know I'm, know I'm...

Love is a lie
Love is a lie
Love is a lie
And I know I'm going...
You can call it a game
But there's no greater pain
When it's stuck in the vein
I know I'm going down

I've got a bell but no sound
I've got a horse but no hound
And I know I'm, know I'm going down

One Eyed Chicken

Oh Father come together
My sisters and all my brothers
Apathy getting crazy
Help me understand
There's water there fire
Which one should I aspire
Compassion or reaction
What will command

Reach out and hold me
Reach out and bite my hand

I'm like a one-eyed chicken and a two-legged dog
Shrinking heads in the chicken then I piss on the lawn
I'm not the kind of woman that you want to take home
Only heaven knows a devils pain
I just can't change

I'm digging digging digging digging digging on you
Digging digging digging digging digging on me
We're digging digging digging digging digging are we
What we're gonna do

Oh Father make it better
Make my love shine bigger than ever
Tell Jesus never leave us this is my prayer
There's kindness there's cruelty
A little bit of both inside of me
Come love me come heal me
Make me aware

Reach out and hold me
Reach out and bite my hand

I'm like a one eyed-chicken and a two-legged dog
Shrinking heads in the chicken then I piss on the lawn
I'm not the kind of woman that you want to take home
Only heaven knows a devils shame
I just can't change

So glad you made it or I'd be nothing at all
I'm tired and faded I'm like a wrecking ball

I'm like a one-eyed chicken and a two-legged dog
Shrinking heads in the chicken then I piss on the lawn
I'm not the kind of woman that you want to take home
Only heaven knows a devils pain
I just can't change

I just can't change

I'm digging digging digging digging digging on you
Digging digging digging digging digging on me
We're digging digging digging digging digging are we
What we're gonna do

World without you

Days 'n nights n' nights n' days
In silent shades of lazy grays
I'll call your name
It's all the same

Sitting staring at the ceiling
Dripping painted pictures peeling
From my walls
The time just crawls

Was it yesterday I don't know
Was I dreaming or did I lose everything I believe in

If you could only see what I see
Every time you leave

Imagine a world with no sky
Imagine the ocean run dry
Imagine and you'll see the view
Of my world without you
Imagine no sun and no rain
Imagine that each day is the same
It doesn't matter what I do
In a world without you

Doers doing thinkers thinking
Lonely lover's lips are sinking in my tea
They're burning me

Wasted weeping someone speaking
In my head the bed is leaking tears again
And there's no end

Was it yesterday I don't know
Was I dreaming or did I lose everything I believe in

If you could only see what I see
Every time you leave

Imagine a world with no sky
Imagine the ocean run dry
Imagine and you'll see the view
Of my world without you
Imagine no sun and no rain
Imagine that each day is the same
It doesn't matter what I do
In a world without you
