Beauty Queen

Give me a reason,
Give me just one reason,
To la la la la la la la la la love you
Give me a reason,
Give me just one reason,
To la la la la la la la la la love you

I know I’m not
A Beauty Queen
Not one for those Magazines,
But it’s alright,
It’s OK.
There’s more to this girl

I’m not your Barbie Doll,
You’re not my Ken,
Not some great Prince among men.
Cause I won’t let you be,
Cause I’m not ready,
Ain’t done kissing frogs

Out looking sexy in your leotard
All boys staring,
They’re so hard
D’ya Feel better than that girl in a sweater? Yeah?
Just tell me that?

Give me a reason,
Give me just one reason,
To la la la la la la la la la love you

I know I’m not
A Beauty Queen
Not one for those Magazines
But it’s alright,
It’s OK.
There’s more to this girl

I’m not a bra-burner,
Nor do I hate men,
But I like strong women, women,
To be strong women, women and men strong men!

We made love between the screams and shouts,
It wasn’t great and you stressed me out,
But our love you see, hot in its infancy,
Point blank,
We left it there.

Your girl and I we’re not friends,
She’s a Beauty Queen, a teenage dream,
A trophy among men,
We’re chalk and cheese and.
I can’t breathe it’s me,
Y ou want…again.

Give me a reason,
Give me just one reason,
To la la la la la la la la la love you

Give me a reason,
Give me just one reason,
To la la la la la la la la la love you

I know I’m not

Track Name: Something out of Nothing
Something out of Nothing

I’m not like all the other girls,
I can’t play those games.
I can’t even fake it.
When I call your name
I call your name.
No matter how I try,
Still you cannot see.
For you I’m merely,
One shiny apple on a tree, yeah.

Just look at me,
I’m just another girl you see,
Trying to be,
Trying to make something,
Out of nothing.

Just look at me,
I’m just another girl you see,
Trying to be,
Trying to make something,
Out of nothing at all.

Huh

Never one to say quite how you feel.
Living in shadows,
Your mantra:
Conceal, conceal, conceal.

I don’t sit at night craving your touch,
I think it would burn me,
And end up costing you too much.

Just look at me,
I’m just another girl you see,
Trying to be,
Trying to make something,
Out of nothing.

Just look at me,
I’m just another girl you see,
Trying to be,
Trying to make something,
Out of nothing at all.

Still you bring me down. Huh

Who are you to treat me this way?
To treat me this way?
Like I down exist?
When I…

I need your love
I need your love
I need your love
I need your love
I need your love
I need your love

I need your love
I need your love

Just look at me,
I’m just another girl you see,
Trying to be,
Trying to make something,
Out of nothing.

Just look at me,
I’m just another girl you see,
Trying to be,
Trying to make something,
Out of nothing at all.


I need your love
I need your love
I need your love

Yes it’s a Love Song

I can write a love song,
Just the way it should be sung.
Don’t tell me that I’m wrong.
Let it go tonight.

I can write a love song,
Just the way it should be sung.
Don’t tell me that I’m wrong.
Let it go tonight.

I never needed much affection,
You give me love,
I crave rejection,
Oh please baby.

But I don’t wanna be on this shelf,
Growing older, so mouldy,
Like everybody else.
But I know what I can do…

I can write a love song

I can write a love song,
Just the way it should be sung.
Don’t tell me that I’m wrong.
Let it go tonight.

Love drunk, hooked up on your smile,
Black eyes they stain me,
Like ink for a while.

Cloud 999 pumped with attention,
Chatting to me,
Oh so happy,
Your girlfriend you forgot to mention.

But I know what I can do…

Tell me what your thinking
I’ll make your world change from deep, dark, blue
Until its red,
Tell me what you want, I’ll make it better,
Or is that what you dred?
Is that what you drreeeed?

I can write a love song,
Just the way it should be sung.
Don’t tell me that I’m wrong.
Let it go tonight.

I can write a love song,

Track Name: The Swell
The Swell

You used to tell me things,
For my ears only I’m sure,
Not for anyone else.
But now I’m left here stranded alone,
Watching the tide go out,
By myself.
By myself.

There’s gonna be a swell tonight I feel it,
There’s gonna be a swell tonight I hear it,
Break hell tonight, let’s kick it!
Break hell tonight!

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.
It’s coming our way. Eh.
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.
It’s coming here to stay, Eh.

I push play to think of you,
Stuck on repeat in a time
Warp of perfection herself.
But now I’m left here stranded alone,
Watching the tide go out,
By myself.
By myself.

There’s gonna be a swell tonight I feel it,
There’s gonna be a swell tonight I hear it,
Break hell tonight, let’s kick it!

It’s coming our way. Eh.
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.
It’s coming here to stay, Eh.

Flutter, flutter, fly, fly, fly
Sounds from a Summer long gone
When I was somebody else.
But now I’m left here stranded alone,
Watching the tide go out,
By myself.
By myself.

I want to hear your sadest story
Stripped bare of all it’s glory,
Beauty’s in the detail,
And that’s where you’ll find me.
