Amy Studt All I Wanna Do

“All I wanna do is have a little fun before I die”

Says the man next to me out of nowhere

It’s apropos of nothing

He says his name’s William but I’m sure

He’s Bill or Billy or Mac or Buddy

And he’s plain ugly to me

And I wonder if he’s ever had a day of fun in his whole life

We are drinking beer at noon on Tuesday

In a bar that faces a giant car wash

The good people of the world are washing their cars

On their lunch break, hosing and scrubbing

As best they can in skirts in suits

They drive their shiny Datsuns and Buicks

Back to the phone company, the record store too

Well, they’re nothing like Billy and me, cause

All I wanna do is have some fun

I got a feeling I’m not the only one

All I wanna do is have some fun

I got a feeling I’m not the only one

All I wanna do is have some fun

Until the sun comes up over Santa Monica Boulevard

I like a good beer buzz early in the morning

And Billy likes to peel the labels

From his bottles of Bud

He shreds them on the bar

Then he lights every match in an oversized pack

Letting each one burn down to his thick fingers

Before blowing and cursing them out

And he’s watching the bottles of Bud as they spin on the floor

And a happy couple enters the bar

Dangerously close to one another

The bartender looks up from his want ads

All I wanna do is have some fun

I got a feeling I’m not the only one

All I wanna do is have some fun

I got a feeling I’m not the only one

All I wanna do is have some fun

Until the sun comes up over Santa Monica Boulevard

Otherwise the bar is ours,

The day and the night and the car wash too

The matches and the Buds and the clean and dirty cars

The sun and the moon but

All I wanna do is have some fun

I got a feeling I’m not the only one

All I wanna do is have some fun

I got a feeling I’m not the only one

All I wanna do is have some fun

Ive got a feeling the party has just begun

All I wanna do is have some fun

I won’t tell ya, that your the only one

All I wanna do is have some fun

Until the sun comes up over Santa Monica Boulevard

Until the sun comes up over Santa Monica Boulevard

Yeah, yeah, yeah.

With just one more push trying to make me your clone,

Marking me outta ten for the label on my clothes.

Just one more squack and I’m gonna hit back,

I’m gonna burn down your house in a heated attack.

Oooh, there’s a little bit of devil in me I confess,

Cos you wanna pick on me and not the rest.

If I had just a little more time,

Does it make you feel big,

Does it make you feel better?

So tell me how’s the weather?

With the time that you’ve found yourself,

Free yourself from the crowd.

Who gives a uh,

If whoops you aint shiny and perfect.

Amy Studt You’re Gonna Be Fine

Constantly, finding ways to fill the empty space.

But still it seems that nothing touches you anymore.

And you’re not really sure, which way to turn.

If you feel the sadness sweep you off yout feet,

Doubled in the things that you feel.

Don’t be ashamed of who you are and don’t be afraid to stand your ground.

Cause at the end, end of the day,

You’re one step closer to finding your way,

And although you might think you’re out of time,

You’re gonna be fine.

Cause at the end, end of the day,

You’re one step closer,

To finding your way,

And although you might think you’re out of time,

You’re gonna be fine.

You should know that things aren’t always as they seem.

So why still swim in the depths of a tide that’s pulling you in?

Makes you think your life has been a waste of time.

Leave the shade and step out into the glare.

Pease of mind awaits you there.

Don’t be afraid to stand your ground.

Don’t be ashamed of who you are.

Cause at the end, end of the day,

You’re one step closer,

To finding your way,

And although you might think you’re out of time,

You’re gonna be fine.

Cause at the end, end of the day,

You’re one step closer to finding you way,

And although you might think you’re out of time,

You’re gonna be fine.

Never had the help to find your way,

There’s nothing you could do or say.

You had to find your own mistakes to learn.

Just look inside of you,

You’ve got to find your own way through.

Cause at the end, end of the day,

You’re one step closer to finding your way,

And although you might think you’re out of time,

You’re gonna be fine.

Cause at the end, end of the day,

You’re one step closer to finding your way,

And although you might think you’re out of time,

You’re gonna be fine.

Amy Studt Superior Mind

If there’s hate in this heart, then there’s hate in that heart.

One hand claps not without the other.

If there’s hate in this heart, then there’s hate in that heart.

One hand claps not without the other.

>From love springs love, but who can say,

If the love is not returned, it furthers by the day.

>From hate springs hate, so we have found.

It’s growing ever stronger.

Every chance you’ll take, and every heart you’ll break.

You know that everyday I’m more disappointed,

By the world and I’m losing my faith.

You make the hell we have to live another universal truth.

You keep on asking the same kind of questions,

You keep on fighting the same type of wars.

Cos you will find what you need inside to be a superior mind.

Superior mind.

If you still believe in what you said was right,

You kept saying that you loved me, but you were wrong,

It was lust at first sight.

It’s been this way as far as we can remember.

Why do you always make this yours to punish.

Without the scars to show, you will never grow.

You know that everyday I’m more disappointed,

By the world and I’m losing my faith.

You make the hell we have to live another universal truth.

You keep on asking the same kind of questions,

You keep on fighting the same type of wars.

Cos you will find what you need inside to be a superior mind.

Oh no, oh no, oh no, oh no, oh no.

It’ll never change, it’ll never make sense.

Oh no, oh no, oh no, oh no, oh no.

You’ll never find your way, if you never used to play there.

Oh no, oh no, oh no, oh no, oh no.

You keep making the same mistakes over and over.

Your love turns to hate, and your hate turns to love.

To cure all the things you used to be dreaming of.

You know that everyday I’m more disappointed,

By the world and I’m losing my faith.

You make the hell we have to live another universal truth.

You keep on asking the same kind of questions,

You keep on fighting the same type of wars.

Cos you will find what you need inside to be a superior mind.

Superior mind.

You know that everyday I’m more disappointed,

By the world and I’m losing my faith.

You make the hell we have to live another universal truth. (Universal truth)

You keep on asking the same kind of questions,

You keep on fighting the same type of wars.

Cos you will find what you need inside to be a superior mind.

If there’s love in this heart, then there’s love in that heart.

One hand claps not without the other.

If there’s love in this heart, then there’s love in that heart.

One hand claps not without the other.

Amy Studt Just A Little Girl

Sometimes I feel you’re not listening

Sometimes I feel you don’t understand

But I think I’ve got the answer

Already know what you’re gonna say

‘Cause I’m just a little girl you see

But there’s a hell of a lot more to me

Don’t ever underestimate what I can do

Don’t ever tell me how I’m meant to be

You say I’m just a little girl, just a little girl

How can I compare? What do I know?

What have I got to share?

But there’s nothing in this world, nothing in this world

That could hold me down, can’t you hear me?

Don’t you understand

That I wanna be myself, wanna be the girl,

Wanna be the one that you can rely on

How I wish that you could see all there is of me

How I long to hear that you take me

For who I am

‘Cause I’m just a little girl you see

But there’s a hell of a lot more to me

Don’t ever underestimate what I can do

Don’t ever tell me how I’m meant to be

‘Cause I’m just a little girl you see

But there’s a hell of a lot more to me

Don’t ever underestimate what I can do

Don’t ever tell me how I’m meant to be

Sometimes I feel you’re not listening

Sometimes I feel you don’t understand

‘Cause I’m just a little girl you see

But there’s a hell of a lot more to me

Don’t ever underestimate what I can do

Don’t ever tell me how I’m meant to be

‘Cause I’m just a little girl you see

But there’s a hell of a lot more to me

Don’t ever underestimate what I can do

Don’t ever tell me how I’m meant to be

Amy Studt Seconds Away

I feel you,

Inside me,

And slowly

I’m gone.

I’m losing

It quietly

Drawn into the sun.

Lovers go

And lovers come

It’s the same for everyone.

For my life I’m holding on, it’s fragile, precious.

I see you,

Inside me,

And softly

I’m done.

I’m falling,

I’m melting like liquid, I run.

Lovers all

And lovers none

But it changes everyone.

For a moment, then it’s gone, it’s fragile, precious.

Count the seconds away to the sound of your heart.

What a beautiful day to get lost in the dark.

Count the seconds away to the sound of your heart.

It’s endless,

Completeness.

I drown in your arms,

My senses awakening

How freeing you are.

>From the depths of where I came

To the embers of my flame.

I feel like a child again, I’m fragile, restless.

Count the seconds away to the sound of your heart.

What a beautiful day to get lost in the dark.

Count the seconds away to the sound of your heart.

To the sound of your heart.

Seconds, seconds, seconds, into your heart.

Seconds, seconds, seconds, into your heart.

Seconds, seconds, seconds, into your heart.

Seconds, seconds, seconds, into your heart.

Count the seconds away to the sound of your heart. (To the sound of your heart)

What a beautiful day to get lost in the dark. (To get lost in the dark)

Count the seconds away to the sound of your heart. (To the sound of your heart)

What a beautiful day to get lost in the dark. (To get lost in the dark)

Count the seconds away to the sound of your heart. (To the sound of your heart)

What a beautiful day to get lost in the dark.

Amy Studt Sad, Sad World

Come say hello to me

When you’re in town

I know you’re crazy about me

And want me around

You move in closer

When you should run away

A little rabbit in my hunting game

And I got perfect aim

What a sad, sad world it is

When we take pleasure in others’ demise

And in this sad, sad world we live

We push down others to stay alive

Flattery has me endeared to you

As any flesh and blood would

You say you’d be good to me

Well so you should

I’m not that girl anymore

She went away

Now I’m the one with the game

And I won’t be played

What a sad, sad world it is

When we delight in spinning our lies

And in this sad, sad world we live

We kick and spit just to stay alive

Oh what a sad, sad world it is yeah

What a sad, sad world it is yeah

Oh what a sad, sad world yeah

Ssshhh

But when it comes that I get tired of games

Will you still be around

I think you know that when the light is shined below

Then you will see

The monster that I am

You will run away

They always do

I might keep you around

If you behave

I like you crawling

My little boy slave

What a sad, sad world it is

When we’re excited by somebody’s pain

And in this sad, sad world we live

I’m in the middle I’m not afraid

Oh what a sad, sad world yeah

What a sad, sad world

What a sad, sad world it is

Yeah

Ssshhh

Amy Studt Beautiful Lie

There’s a sadness that they don’t see,

When you come to me, with your sorrows.

It’s not enough for you to cry,

Cause you don’t know why it still hurts.

I know we’ve been here a thousand times,

With your past full of lies it’s still there.

A constant struggle to find yourself,

But I know that I can’t help at all, no.

You don’t have nothing but pride, to keep you alive, yeah.

Alive oh yeah.

I can say it will be fine, it’s a beautiful lie,

So please, don’t leave it all up to me.

I see the way they talk with you,

They’re always trying to prove, that they are better.

You run away cause you can’t take,

The way they make you feel.

Another self-ache behind locked doors,

But then nobody knows that something’s wrong,

You made a cage that you cannot break,

I tried but I can’t help at all.

You don’t have nothing but pride, to keep you alive, yeah.

Alive oh yeah.

I can say it will be fine, it’s a beautiful lie,

So please, don’t leave it all up to me.

I can feel you,

I can heal you,

I can help you.

It’s a beautiful lie, lost in silence, trapped by violence, oh.

(It’s a beautiful lie, beautiful lie)

You don’t have nothing but pride, to keep you alive, yeah.

Alive oh yeah.

I can say it will be fine, it’s a beautiful lie,

So please, don’t leave it all up to me.

You don’t have nothing but pride, to keep you alive, yeah.

Alive oh yeah.

I can say it will be fine, it’s a beautiful lie,

So please, don’t leave it all up to me.

Amy Studt The Lucky Ones

One last chance to say the word we never said

One last dance with you might help me to forget.

There’ll be no mourners slowly trudging through the rain

But we won’t be alone and never will again.

We are the lucky ones in the final days of the dying sun,

Move across the shifting sands

‘cos there’s nothing left to lose.

We are the lucky ones with no regrets

when tomorrow comes.

And I could let it all slip away if I could share this last dance with you.

One last requiem of love straight from my heart

As the seams begin to stretch and pull apart.

Bathe in the memories of all that you have ever seen;

So strange when you face the end

You’re more alive than you’ve ever been.

Isn’t it wonderful, isn’t it beautiful.

We are the lucky ones

And we don’t know if tomorrow will ever come

We are the lucky ones,

No, no, no, no.

Amy Studt Furniture

I am only flesh and bones,

Splintered glass and tattered clothes,

behind the skin, my fragility,

behind the skin, a skeletal impracticality,

I am only pieces of you,

held together with paper glue,

behind the skin, my divinity

behind the skin, my only sanctuary.

You can lean on me, have a drink on me,

leave your mark all over me,

paint the outside ’till it smiles,

you can eat off me, rest your head on me,

press yourself on top of me,

kick the back until its quiet.

All in all I’m just furniture,

Just another piece taking you one step further from the perfect living room set,

All in all I’m just furniture,

In these 4 walls that hold me, keep me safe under sound and bare within its grip.

My wooden heart it sings no more,

This dress I wear becomes the floor,

behind the skin, a living, breathing thing,

behind the skin, a place you’ve never been.

You can lean on me, have a drink on me,

leave your mark all over me,

paint the outside ’till it smiles,

you can eat off me, rest your head on me,

press yourself on top of me,

kick the back until its quiet.

All in all I’m just furniture,

Just another piece taking you one step further from the perfect living room set,

All in all I’m just furniture,

In these 4 walls that hold me, keep me safe under sound and bare within its grip.

I am only flesh and bones,

Splintered glass and tattered clothes.
