Miss California Lyrics

Sep 19 2010 Published by under Melissa Etheridge

Miss California what did I do wrong
It seems I’ve loved you
For just a little too long
You’ve gone and left me
For some preacher’s way
Now you act like you never knew me
And you can’t hear a word I say

Miss California did I get in your way
Did the neighbors warn you
What would happen some day
Like a love like mine
Was never good anyway
They said think about your reputation now
Before you get carried away

Don’t you know what’s good for me can be good for you
Don’t you know what’s good for me can be good for you
Don’t you know what is good for you
Can be good for me too
Don’t you know what’s good for me can be good for you

Miss California was I a little too proud
I’m standing in the street now
And I’m screaming out loud
You try to shove me in your closet
With your skulls and your bones
I can be who I am you see
If I want to do it all alone

Yeah yeah yeah

Don’t you know what’s good for me can be good for you
Don’t you know what is good for you
Can be good for me too
Don’t you know what’s good for me can be good for you

Your sweet seduction led me far from home
Your self-destruction gives me sticks and stones
Your propositions make me feel so cold
When the hand that’s trying to hold me down
Is the one I’m trying to hold
I know the hand that’s trying to hold me down
Is the one I’m trying to hold
I said the hand that’s trying to force me back
Is the one that won’t let me go

Miss California
Yeah yeah yeah
Miss California
Yeah yeah yeah
Miss California
Yeah yeah yeah
Miss California
Yeah yeah yeah

Ah huh

Yeah
You know what is good for me

You And I Know Lyrics

Sep 19 2010 Published by under Melissa Etheridge

They ask why do we live love die do we
Take a chance maybe ask a dance do we
Risk the pain never quite regain never
Oh we bleed the dark never miss the mark never
Well you and I know I know you and I know you and I know
You and I know I know you and I know you and I know
You and I know I know you and I know you and I know

They don’t know of the place we go lover
All the blues are green nothing in between lover
And when the darkness falls through the fine glass walls lover
Oh it makes the sound of the outward bound lover
But you and I know I know you and I know you and I know
You and I know I know you and I know you and I know
You and I know I know you and I know you and I know
Oh
Well they’re looking right through me
And back into themselves
And I’m thinking that they knew me
When they laugh at someone else
Well you and I know I know you and I know you and I know
You and I know I know you and I know you and I know
You and I know I know you and I know you and I know
Oh I know you and I know you and I know
Oh I know you and I know you and I know
I know
Yes, you and I know
They ask why do we live love die do we

You Could Save Me Lyrics

Sep 19 2010 Published by under Melissa Etheridge

Good morning Monday
Take off your shoes
Because the jeans that I am posing
Are anything but blue
There were shadows, I remember shadows
All over me not long ago
Yes there were secrets and unlocked doors

There were mysteries of ages and oceans to explore
If I close my eyes, if I close my eyes
I can feel it all over again

And I know if there was danger
I know if there was doubt
I know if I had to keep running like hell
Just looking for a way to get out
I know if I was kidnapped
And nobody had a clue
After last night that kind of delight
All I’d have to do is think of you

And you could save me
You could save me
If I needed it right now
If I needed it right now
Honey you could save me
You could save me
Darling you know how
You know how
Honey you could save me
You could save me
Right now right now right now

I don’t need a number
I don’t need a phone
I got wisdom on my hands
And its creeping into my bones
And its 1-2-3 see how easy it could be
When you’re sworn to secrecy
And now there’s roses and things to do
And the sheets are in the laundry
And my mind should be there too
Because I’m waiting, yes I’m waiting
To feel it all over again

If I thought that I was followed
If I thought that I was lost
If I thought that I had gambled
And couldn’t pay the cost
If I thought that I was crazy
If I thought I’d come unscrewed
After that fire that kind of desire
All I’d have to do is think of you too

And you could save me
You could save me
If I needed it right now
If I needed it right now
Honey you could save me
You could save me
Darling you know how
Yes you know how
Honey you could save me
You could save me
Right now right now right now

And if I thought that I was followed
If I thought that I was lost
If I thought that I had gambled
And I couldn’t pay the cost
If I thought that I was crazy
If I thought I’d come unscrewed
After that fire that kind of desire
All I’d have to do is think of you too

And you could save me
Oh you could save me
If I needed it right now
If I needed it right now
Honey you could save me
Yes you could save me
Darling you know how
Hey you know how
Honey you could save me
Ooh you could save me
Right now right now
Ohh you could save me
Ohh you could save me
Right now right now right now

The Wanting Of You Lyrics

Sep 19 2010 Published by under Melissa Etheridge

She’s got her sweet children
She’s got her home she’s got some land
Her earthly possessions
She’s got a ring upon her hand
She tried to be a good girl
She tried to make everything right
She tried to kill the voices

That haunt her each and every night

She looks up to heaven
And wonders why love is so cruel
She loves him won’t hurt him
Can’t stop the wanting of you

She married in high school
Oldest was well upon her way
But that wild night Chicago
It’s left a mark she can’t erase
A phase you’ll just get over
That’s what her friends have always said

You dip your toes in water
She’s in way over her head

She looks up to heaven
And wonders why love is so cruel
She loves him won’t hurt him
Can’t stop the wanting of you

Keeping her desire paralyzed
She catches in the corner of her eyes
Tank top, smooth skin, soft lips, tanned thighs
How the hell’s this ache ever gonna die
And we make our choices
Doing what wee think is good
We deny our own dreams
‘Cause we think we’ve been told we should
We think we’ve been told we should

She looks up to heaven
And wonders why love is so cruel
She loves him won’t hurt him
Can’t stop the wanting of you
