4 Non Blondes Drifting

What a wonderful hesitation

who would bear to feel sorry for me

dropped another pill just to calm me

collapsed to my knees and fell fast into sleep

there I was drifting

way out into the sunshine

expecting to crash but I’m tied to a string

look at me I’m a tangled puppet

I might be a mess but I’m sure can survive

find myself awake counting sad days

1-2-3 that’s too many for me

dropped another pill just to find me

reached for my hand but it was already there

then I started believin’

that I fell out of a tiny raindrop

that lost its way when I decided to roam

chasing me was a hungry dweller

but I had escaped it by pretending to die

come follow me you won’t expect the illusion

you’ll see it’s my imagination

hand me your eyes

I will put them in front of mine

you’ll see a little better

you’ll see a little better

what a wonderful destination

where I am now

I can no longer see

dropped another pill just to kill me

collapsed to my knees and fell fast into sleep

there I was drifting

way out into the sunshine

expecting to crash but I’m tied to a string

look at me I’m a tangled puppet

I might be a mess but I’m sure can survive

but I had escaped it by pretending to die

4 Non Blondes Old Mr. Heffer

Stumbled my way on the darkest afternoon

I got a beer in my hand and I’m draggin’ a stoagle too

the back of my brain is tickin’ like a clock

I simmer down gently but boil on what the f

Get back ’cause I’m feelin’ good tonight

get back ’cause I’m feelin’ right

Trouble is a word that stars with a capital T

I refer myself to the word ’cause I’m so keen

little do they know that I’m struttin’ such a style

it makes the trouble in me all worth the while

So get back ’cause I’m feelin’ good tonight

get back ’cause I’m feelin’ right

There goes Billy and Susie walkin’ hand by hand

I quickly caught up slurring yo what’s the plan

they had fear in their eyes and bellies that ran like dogs

I barrelled down laughing screaming Susie

you forgot your clogs

well, Old Mr. Heffer

I’m really pleased to meet you

I didn’t mean to scare your blue-eyed child

but Billy wouldn’t talk to me

and Susie wouldn’t look at me

it made me so doggone crazy

I had to chase them for a mile

all wanted was change for a buck

Well I’m back and I’m feelin’ good tonight

yea I’m back and I’m feelin’ right

so get back ’cause I’m feelin’ right

Jesus!

4 Non Blondes Morphine & Chocolate

Substitute my gloom with happiness

substitute my sickness with health

substitute my enemies with real good friends

can warm my heart whenever I want it

and every once in a while when I stop and think

morphine & chocolate are my substitute, substitutes

but, you might be careful, it really hurts when it’s real

you might be careful, it really hurts when it’s real

you might be careful, it really hurts when it’s real

you’ll go down, down, down, ooh

Set the alarm clock, baby,

don’t you miss the sun?

I’m feeling really warm hearted baby

don’t you know I’m feeling like someone

I’m fearing for my heart

Morphine & chocolate could never substitute my art!

and that’s real love baby

and that’s real love baby

4 Non Blondes Spaceman

Starry night bring me down

Till I realize the moon

It seems so distant yet I felt it pass right through

And I see what I see a new world is over me

So I’ll reach up to the sky

And pretend that I’m a spaceman

In another place and time

I guess I’m looking for a brand new place

Is there a better life for me?

Subtle wind blow me gone

Let me rest upon your move

I trust I’ll end up sleeping cradled in my doom

And I feel what I feel

I can’t grasp what is not real

So I’ll get myself real high

And imagine I’m a spaceman

In another place and time

I guess I’m looking for a brand new place

Is there a better life for me?

I remember in my mind

They say I’m daydreaming

Is it all that it seems

Or am I all the things I’m looking for? ?ooh!

And I see what I see a new world is over me

And I’ll reach up to the sky

And imagine I’m a spaceman

In another place and time

I guess I’m looking for a brand new place

I remember living in a different life

Is there a better life for me?
