Annah Mac Focus

Really should be studying

But the day’s so fine

Just chilling at the beach

Takeaways

Cheap white wine

Killing time whistling

At every boy who walks by

Time for the gym

Not one looks down or acts up shy

I can hear the old man in my head and I

Haven’t even spoken with him for a month

Riding shotgun in a shirt deep red

Driving us out to the wharf in bluff

Girl focus

Where’d this attitude come from

You’re my oldest

Focus

If I put in the time

I know I’d do good

Make him proud

Whatever else

I swear I would

But there’s just other things

And I don’t try

There’s nothing wrong with minimum and I get by

And I can hear the old man in my head and I

Haven’t even spoken with him for a month

Riding shotgun in a shirt deep red

Driving us out to the wharf in bluff

Girl focus

Where’d this attitude come from

You’re my oldest

You’re my oldest

No more

No more early nights to re-negotiate

No more

Arriving home loaded with boys and beer

Cause freedom comes and then it’s too late

It’s too late

It’s too late

Oh, oh, oh, oh

Oh focus

Where’d this attitude come from

You’re my oldest

And girl I need you too show me some

Focus (Oh)

Focus

Focus (Oh)

Annah Mac Home

It’s gonna be okay this time

I’m coming home

I’m sick of all the city lights

Sleeping in a cold bed by the phone

I’ve been traveling through a long black tunnel

Re-merging into the light

I won’t believe that everyone will fall for me

In my glass slippers

Curfew set for midnight

Midnight

It’s gonna be alright this time

I’m coming home

Evoked among familiar faces

The sound of a trombone

And in the presence of the night

I store my feelings on the shelf

Listen to the breathing of the fireplace

No longer in a cold bed by myself I’m…

Home,

Home,

I’m home

You can count the seconds in my time

But I’m home

Home and I’ll be fine

Fine

Gotta get myself home

I’m home there ain’t nothing else that I need

Just the warm familiar faces standing next to me

There’s ain’t nowhere else I’d rather be

In the warmth and company

Of friends and family

Home,

Home,

I’m home

You can count the seconds in my time

But I’m home

Home and I’ll be fine

Home and I’ll be fine

Gotta get myself home

Annah Mac Kiss Me

Kiss me

Mmm, kiss me

I need somebody’s touch

Take your time with me, don’t rush

If you wanna kiss me

Stand with me

Don’t expect my heart or my room key

Won’t give you full control

I’ll share my body and soul

If you stand with me

[Chorus]

Oh, I don’t like goodbyes

Oh, oh, oh, oh

So we won’t say goodbye

No, oh, oh, oh

Babe, don’t go

Just, oh, kiss me

Show me you want me

I haven’t felt this way before

I need someone to adore me

Show me you want me

I’ll let you hold me

If you tell me you love me

It’s not something you have to swear

I just need someone to care

Tell me you love me

[Chorus]

Oh, I don’t like goodbyes

Oh, oh, oh, oh

So we won’t say goodbye

No, oh, oh, oh

Babe, don’t go

I don’t like goodbyes

No, oh, oh, oh

So we won’t say goodbye

Oh, oh, oh, oh

Babe, don’t go

Just, oh, kiss me

Whoa, kiss me

I need somebody’s touch

Take your time with me, don’t rush

If you wanna kiss me

Annah Mac Same Cartoons

[Verse 1]

The last time I called you

We were young and into the same cartoons

I guess time left and I missed you

Talking like brothers in winter with cars and the moon

It’s strange to see you grown

Not trying to pretend with me

And I guess we’re both alone

And I, I don’t mind being friendly

[Chorus]

It’s been so long since I’ve seen you

It’s been so long since I’ve seen you

Have I changed cos you’ve changed

From the boy that I once knew and it’s been

It’s been so long since I’ve seen you

[Verse 2]

The last time I called you

We were young and into the same cartoons

I guess time left and I missed you

Talking like brothers in winter with cars and the moon

It’s strange to see you grown

Not trying to pretend with me

And I guess we’re both alone

And I, I don’t mind being friendly

[Chorus]

Oh, it’s been so long since I’ve seen you

It’s been so long since I’ve seen you

Have I changed cos you’ve changed

From the boy that I once knew and it’s been

Oh, it’s been so long since I’ve seen you

[Bridge]

Now we worry about money

Loans, high interest and rent

Don’t remember time better

Than material things that we’ve spent

Think things over through and through and through

And now we all smoke and drink and fight

I know what the younger in me would choose

Oh, we grow up and we get misused

[Chorus]

It’s been so long since I’ve seen you

It’s been so long since I’ve seen you

Have I changed cos you’ve changed

From the boy that I once knew and it’s been

It’s been so long since I’ve seen you

Seen you

Seen you

Seen you

Same cartoons

Annah Mac Celia

It started out great

We were staying up late

Hanging out in the park till two

Then you met your boyfriend

Left all of your girlfriends

Everybody’s talking bout you

Hey Celia

Hey Celia

Hey Celia

Hey Celia

Since the whole big showdown

I’ve been on the low-down

We used to have our time too

Oh but you’re hanging out with his friends

Bagging all your girlfriends

Crying when he doesn’t call you

I’ve been putting in good words for ya

But everybody’s talking ‘bout ya

Girl I don’t know what we’re gonna do

They’ve written on all the bus stop windows

Caught you on video

They’ve got some new names for you…

Hey Celia

Hey Celia

Hey Celia

Hey Celia

This used to be our town

Now it’s just a ghost town

With no one and nothing to do

You’re messing with your girlfriends

Chasing all their boyfriends

Hey girl what’s happened to you

Hey Celia

Hey Celia

Hey Celia

Hey Celia

Oh I’ve been putting in good words for ya

But everybody’s out to get ya

They’ve written on all the bus stop windows

Caught you on video

They’ve got some new names for you

Oh I’m calling on the phone (Hey Celia)

And it says you’re not at home

When I know you’re up there crying and blue

Oh don’t feel you don’t belong (Hey Celia)

Keep your head up and be strong

Girl I’ll always be here waiting for you

Hey Celia, hey Celia, Celia

Uh uh uh uh uh uh uh uh uh uh uh oh.

Annah Mac Girl In Stilettos

[Verse #1]

Powerlines, Pohutukawa trees

Make an inbetween for everything I own

Got my license on the third time

Travelling down the gravel that really is a main road

People stare, sun in my hair

Window down, feel like something off a movie

Girl dreaming of her big break and all the money she’ll make

(Saving money up for next year)

[Chorus]

They’re watching me

On the big stage, red, green and mellow

Young and free

Turn the lights on me, take three

Oh, but all they see is a girl in stilettos

When all I want is to get up there and sing

[Verse #2]

Thank God I don’t smoke anymore

Leaves me one less thing to hide

And I don’t really miss the 1950s fishermen

Trying to chat me up outside

I see people’s stares, feel my own tears

Looking down it’s like they all just wanna do me

Mr Understanding pulls up a chair, puts a hand on my shoulder

(Let me buy your next beer)

[Chorus]

They’re watching me

On the big stage, red, green and mellow

Young and free

Turn the lights on me, take three

Oh, but all they see is a girl in stilettos

When all I want is to get up there and sing

[Verse #3]

Three Februaries feels like a century

And things are spinning way out of control

Oh, you tell me wait a while but I’m not gonna smile

I’ve decided you’re an asshole

People stare, sun in my hair

Window down and I’m watching lots of movies

Still dreaming of the big break and all the money can wait

(I’m saving up for next year)

[Chorus]

They’re watching me

On the big stage, red, green and mellow

Young and free

Turn the lights on me, take three

Oh, but all they see is a girl in stilettos

When all I want is to get up there and sing

La, da, da, da, da, da, da

La, da, da, da, da, da

La, da, da, da, da, da, da

La, da, da, da, da, da

La, da, da, da, da, da, da

La, da, da, da, da, da

La, da, da, da, da, da, da

La, da, da, da, da, da

Annah Mac Make Me Yours

Thinking of you and I’m late

I know I should go but I’ll wait

For this physical attraction that I just can’t escape

You’re this physical attraction that I just can’t escape

Your hands on my spine and I shake

You’re not even mine but it’s fate

Oh, and my boy’s coming to town but you’re all I contemplate

And my boy’s coming to town but you’re all I contemplate

[Chorus]

Make me

Make me

Make me

Make me yours

Make me

Make me

Make me

Make me yours

They’re looking at me but all I see is you

Oh, and you’re too old for me but you know how to come through

Too old for me but you know just what to do

Too old for me but you know how to come through

[Chorus]

Make me

Make me

Make me

Make me yours, mmm

Make me

Make me

Make me

Make me yours

Annah Mac Miss You

[Verse 1]

There’s so much

I just wanna talk about

It sits up in my head locked away

So it won’t run into my mouth

But every stranger I give in to

Every conversation on the phone

I just seem to let little things slip through

That I can’t deal with on my own

[Chorus]

Oh, like I miss you

Oh, I miss you

I’m keeping busy hanging ’round with other people

But they don’t know how to mess around like we know

Oh, and I miss you

Oh, I miss you

Whoa

Oh, I miss you

Whoa

[Verse 2]

Well, there’s that face and what

Oh, yeah, I’ve seen that look before

Yeah, yeah, yeah, you just turn around now

Keep walking on ahead of me

I don’t wanna see your face no more

I’m so sick of all their straight lies

They circulate around my head

They distract me from important things

I should be thinking ’bout instead

[Chorus]

Oh, like I miss you

Oh, I miss you

I’m keeping busy hanging ’round with other people

They don’t know how to mess around like we know

Oh, and I miss you

Yeah, I miss you

Whoa

Oh, I miss you

Whoa

I miss you

Oh, I miss you

Oh, there I said it, yes, I miss you

And I’m keeping busy hanging ’round with other people

But they don’t know how to mess around like we know

Oh, and I miss you

There I said it, yes, I miss you

Whoa

Oh, I miss you

Whoa

I miss you

Whoa

Annah Mac City Lights

[Verse 1]

Running through the nights

The city lights and my shame

Heart inscribed empty and unsure

On a gravestone missing letters of my name

The people who bring poppies

Walked away with everything I had

They come to see me only out of guilt to find themselves

Be understanding and everything

[Chorus]

So here I go

Giving you everything and all of me

Spirit chained in tow

Don’t let me hide

Giving you everything

The whole of me that I hold onto inside

Here I go

Here I go

[Verse 2]

Bare feet on paua shells, I am the sea

It’s me alongside my waves

But then we’re diving off the rocks

My head spins, my body locks

And this is all I am right now anyway

The people who surround me

They control everything, all that I am

And I keep thinking did I miss that time to find myself

Be understanding and everything

[Chorus]

So here I go

Giving you everything and all of me

Spirit chained in tow

Don’t let me hide

Giving you everything

The whole of me that I hold onto inside

Here I go

Here I go

Oh, here I go

Giving you everything and all of me

Spirit chained in tow

Don’t let me hide

Giving you everything

The whole of me that I hold onto inside

Here I go

Giving you everything and all of me

Spirit chained in tow

Don’t let me hide

Giving you everything

The whole of me that I hold onto inside

Here I go

Here I go

Here I go

Here I go
