Amy Studt Under The Thumb

You twisted a nerve you, put your hand on your heart.

You said ‘hey don’t worry, you’re fit woman, that’s all that counts now’

I ignored all the usual signs, not really knowing quite why.

Let you decide yeah, aint it funny how I’m finding out now,

It makes me laugh how I let you have your way and your say,

I’ve got it now, so I’m asking you babe,

Did I ever even cross your mind?

Cause it’s not a game of who is under the thumb,

I think you took me for a ride,

But I didn’t see,

I didn’t even realise, boy, that we were playing games of under the thumb,

I think you took me for a ride,

What a waste of me, oh oh oh.

A pro at the sweet talk, back into your bedroom again like,

A fool I went blindly as soon as I got the invite, yes.

I ignored all the usual signs,

Swallowed it down with my pride,

Let you decide, yeah, aint it funny how I’m finding out now,

It makes me laugh how I let you have you say and your way,

I’ve got it now, so I’m asking you babe,

Did I ever even cross your mind?

Cause its not a game of who is under the thumb,

I think you took me for a ride,

But I didn’t see,

I didn’t even realise, boy, that we were playing games of under the thumb,

I think you took me for a ride,

What a waste of me, oh oh oh.

What a waste of me, oh oh oh.

Boy I thought you were for real,

So I could give you more,

But now I want you on your knees begging on the floor.

Did I ever even cross your mind?

Cause its not a game of who is under the thumb,

I think you took me for a ride,

But I didn’t see,

I didn’t even realise (didn’t even realise), boy, that we were playing games of under the thumb,

I think you took me for a ride,

What a waste of me, yeah.

Did I ever even cross your mind?

Cause its not a game of who is under the thumb,

I think you took me for a ride,

But I didn’t see,

I didn’t even realise, boy, that we were playing games of under the thumb,

I think you took me for a ride,

What a waste of me, oh oh oh.

Amy Studt She Ran

Just a girl in a photograph

Wearing the dress that I wear now

A pretty face in fields of grey

It’s sad to see that nothing seems to change

She’s running from the boy in the schoolyard

She’s running through the field to the open barn

They’re laughing as the sun dances round her

A little life within her takes it place inside her starts to grow

She cuts the seams of a favourite frock

She sits and listens to the old church clock

Oh daddy daddy don’t send me away

Never been a bad girl I swear that nothing’s changed

She’s running from the face of her father

She’s running from the silence in a crowded room

She’s running from the ring that he gave her

The leaded sound of promises

The feeling that’s inside her starts to grow

A dark day becomes a cold, cold night

A fading light to bear a newborn life

Two voices fade into one

She closed her eyes with the rising sun

She’s running to the arms of an angel

She’s running from the only place she’s ever known

She’s running with her heart left behind her

They knew when they found her that they just couldn’t hurt her anymore

She’s running from the face of her father

She’s running from the silence in a crowded room

She’s running from the ring that he gave her

They knew when they found her that they just couldn’t hurt her anymore

Just a girl in a photograph

Wearing the dress that I wear now

A pretty face in fields of grey

It’s sad to see that nothing seems to change

Amy Studt False Smiles

They kept a saying you don’t wanna go playing with the big boys

Just stick to the backyard, just stay in your mothers arms

Did you expect me to believe all of the evil lies you whispered when the lights went out?

There’s good in everyone, but you only taught me how to hate

I’m trying hard just to hold my head up from the shadows

There’s more dark than light in me

But you painted that, but you created that

So keep on walking by, don’t turn around, just stop pretending that you care

For all the false smiles, there’s another dying child

Give me another taste

Of what you’ve got to give, I know that I can live life afraid

Take me, one last time

I wanna feel the pain, I wanna feel the shame all the way

I want to feel…

I’m realizing how much that you can hide behind a pretty face

All the secrets that lie inside, jump out and scar and leave without a trace

So I believe I’ll find salvation on the other side of the road

For all the false smiles, there’s another dying child

Give me another taste

Of what you’ve got to give, I know that I can live life afraid

Take me, one last time

I wanna feel the pain, I wanna feel the shame all the way

All the way, all the way

I’ll keep on fighting, keep on writing all the things that you don’t want to hear

Just because I’ll strike a home truth, of what you want to make disappear

It’ll never disappear

Give me another taste

Of what you’ve got to give, I know that I can live life afraid

Take me, one last time

I wanna feel the pain, I wanna feel the shame all the way

Give me another taste

Of what you’ve got to give, I know that I can live life afraid

Take me, one last time

I wanna feel the pain, I wanna feel the shame all the way

I want to feel…

Amy Studt Rose

So much sorrow she has to bear, I watched her cry in her sleep

Day by day her pain becomes more, and then she turned to me

She becomes so aware, that life is ruthlessly unfair

And who are you to judge her pain? ‘Cause now maybe you’ll suffer the same

Rose… such a lucky flower

So excited with her youth, she wants to be mature

Rose… such a lucky flower

So enchanted with her looks, we watch and we adore

Some things never seem important, till they’re gone

Constantly struggling just to make it on her own

She becomes so aware, that life is ruthlessly unfair

And who are you to judge her pain? Because maybe you’ll suffer the same

Rose… such a lucky flower

So excited with her youth, she wants to be mature

Rose… such a lucky flower

So enchanted with her looks, we watch and we adore

And she put her hand in mine, and I noticed the tears in her eyes

Then she said to me, I need a friend tonight

So she said so long this life, and all the weights heavy on my mind

So long this world, I was never meant for this, anyway

Rose… such a lucky flower

So excited with her youth, she wants to be mature

Rose… such a lucky flower

So enchanted with her looks, we watch and we adore

Rose… such a lucky flower

So excited with her youth, she wants to be mature

Rose… such a lucky flower

So enchanted with her looks, we watch and we adore

Amy Studt Going Out Of My Mind

Hey you, its me again.

I tried to call yesterday.

And the words I had,

To say to you,

Somehow they all slipped away.

Please talk to me,

Whatever is wrong.

You know I’d help you out.

How will I know,

If you wont say,

What this silence is about?

Cos I’m going out of my mind,

And I don’t think it’s fair.

Just when things seemed to be fine,

You changed then didn’t care.

Cos the least you could do,

Is to talk this through

And I’m going out of my mind,

Over you.

Hey you, you haven’t called.

I guess you’re still busy.

Guess I think more of you,

Than you do of me.

And that’s not how I want it to be.

Cos I’m going out of my mind,

And I don’t think it’s fair.

Just when things seemed to be fine,

You changed then didn’t care.

Cos the least you could do

Is to talk this through

And I’m going out of my mind,

Over you, yeah.

Hey you, its me again.

Ooh, it’s me again.

Cos I’m going out of my mind,

And I don’t think its fair.

Just when things seemed to be fine,

You changed then didn’t care.

Cos the least you could do

Is to talk this through

And I’m going out of my mind,

Over you.

Amy Studt You’re The Breeze

I woke up this morning as the day was just dawning

Held my head, and wished the world away

Stumbled from my bed, your voice still deafening in my head

You said can’t stay, ’cause baby I can’t take you

Complications from the start

I choose the ones who’ll break my heart and waste my time

Just another struggle, with the torture you call love

But I’ll be fine

You’re like the breeze

I feel you all through me, though you’re invited

You say you can’t stay

You’re like the breeze

You leave and you sweep back in somehow again, you know

You’re like the breeze

The day is passing slowly and I won’t admit I’m lonely, not to you

The TV and the radio, they’re just noise, talk of nothing new

I’m fighting not to care

Complications from the start

I choose the ones who’ll break my heart and waste my time

It’s easier to hate you, to aim and fire and break you, one more time

You’re like the breeze

I feel you all through me, though you’re invited

You say you can’t stay

You’re like the breeze

You leave and you sweep back in somehow again, you know

You’re like the breeze

Oh-oh, you cover it up, but it shows

Oh, I got to let you go

You’re like the breeze

I feel you all through me, though you’re invited

You say you can’t stay

You’re like the breeze

You leave and you sweep back in somehow again, you know

You’re like the breeze

I feel you all through me, though you’re invited

You say you can’t stay

You’re like the breeze

You leave and you sweep back in somehow again, you know

You’re like the breeze

I get back in bed, my mother said it helps the painkillers work

With luck when I wake you’ll be standing there

Wanna take me back again

Amy Studt Misfit

So you think you got it all worked out

You got your hotpants on

You got your arse right out, you

Think that you are something new and special

And me and my drab-dress, we won’t do at all

Spent so long tryin’ to fit the prototype

I kept slippin in the heels and I never got it right

What’s the use?

What’s the point?

You’ve got the wrong girl, oh

So keep doing what you’re

doing down there

Cos I’ll be flying higher

Waste your own time

I don’t care

Anything you can do, I can do better

All you girls

You look and flip your hair and wonder

why I’m still here, well

You’re superficial

I’m a misfit

But, baby, that’s ok

All you girls

When you look into the mirror

Tell me how do you appear, well

You’re superficial

I’m a misfit

You’re superficial

I’m a misfit

(Ah)

But that’s ok

So you got your little groups and gangs

You got your VIP

Your member-only things

Your happy-clappys and your VC crew

And if you get in their way, they got 10 on you

And I don’t wanna be in that game

Don’t wanna follow the leader, no way

What’s the use?

What’s the point?

You’ve got the wrong girl

So keep doing what you’re doing down there

Cos I’ll be flying higher

Waste your own time

I don’t care

Anything you can do, I can do better

All you girls

You look and flip your hair and wonder

why I’m still here, well

You’re superficial

So what we don’t look the same?

So what we don’t, so what we don’t

So what I don’t play your game?

So what I don’t, so what I don’t

So what if I don’t?

All you girls

You look and flip your hair and wonder

why I’m still here, well

You’re superficial

I’m a misfit (misfit)

But, baby, that’s ok

All you girls

When you look into the mirror

Tell me how do you appear, well

But that’s ok

Amy Studt She Walks Beautiful

She walks alone and when she loves, her love’s so wrong

She don’t need a man

She won’t stand by what she can’t stand

Like why like in wars you all stand in line

Now watch her pass you by

She knows her sins with humility

And reaches for the light

With aching knees and back the way is hard to bear

but she carries it with a smile

She walks beautiful, she walks beautiful

she walks beautiful by herself

She walks beautiful, she walks beautiful

she walks beautiful by herself

She walks alone

she’s not invited to parties

so she’s just alone

All alone

to feel the high she bears the lows

She doesn’t call out like the others in the night

in despair and loneliness

She walks beautiful, she walks beautiful

she walks beautiful by herself

She walks beautiful, she walks beautiful

she walks beautiful by herself

Ayaheaheah Ayaheaheah Ayaheaheah Ahohohoh

Ayaheaheah Ayaheaheah Ayaheaheah Ahohohoh

Ayaheaheah Ayaheaheah Ayaheaheah Ahohohoh

Ayaheaheah Ayaheaheah Ayaheaheah Ahohohoh

She walks beautiful, she walks beautiful

she walks beautiful by herself

Ayaheaheah Ayaheaheah Ayaheaheah Ahohohoh

Ayaheaheah Ayaheaheah Ayaheaheah Ahohohoh

Ayaheaheah (Ayaheaheah Ayaheaheah Ahohohoh)

She walks beautiful, she walks beautiful

she walks beautiful by herself

She walks beautiful, she walks beautiful

she walks beautiful by herself

She walks beautiful, she walks beautiful

she walks beautiful by herself

Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

Amy Studt Carry Me Away

Amy Studt Paper Made Men

Take a needle push it in starting with the eye.

For ever time they wandered and every time they lied.

Take a needle push it in stick it through the hands,

For every time they smoothered me for failing your demands.

That Voodoo you do, comes back threefold on you

That voodoo you do, my paper-made man

(My paper made man)

Take a needle push it in press through his tongue,

For ever time he told me that he loved me and whispered me undone.

That Voodoo you do, comes back threefold on you

That Voodoo you do, oh no oh no oh no

(Comes back threefold on you)

That Voodoo you do, comes back threefold on you

That voodoo you do, my paper-made man

(My paper made man)

Ee ai ai oh [etc]

Take a need it push it in press it through his heart,

That Voodoo you do, comes back threefold on you

That Voodoo you do, oh no

That Voodoo you do, comes back threefold on you

That voodoo you do, my paper-made man.
