Track Name: Tippy Toe
I tippy tippy toe my way into your heart
So quiet you don't even know I'm there
But I swear
You'll realize once I'm gone
Like a 'frigerator running you didn't even know it was on
Till it was off

Oh, next I sneak my way all around your brain
But I'm careful not to move a thing
And you think its sweet
That I'm discreet
And I never run into any other girls but me
Which is good,
Cause I would beat them up

Oh Oh Oh next I work my way to your sense of touch
And I find it don't require much
To make you want me all the time
Just a playful brush up against your thigh
And you were mine

I tippy tippy toe my way into your heart
So quiet you don't even know I'm there
But I swear
You'll realize once I'm --
Track Name: Kindly Remove
Kindly remove from the list
Of things you think you know about me
I am not sensitive, in fact I’m quite cold
And I am not interesting

And why do you have to be mean
So mean?

Kindly remove that chip from your shoulder
Its only weighing you down
You don’t deserve to know me when I’m older
It simply should not be allowed

Why don’t you just go away?
You stay

Kindly take back that one thing that you said
It felt like a million cuts on me
Wounds always heal but scars remain
As proof of mistakes that we’ve made

How did I not walk away?
I stayed

Kindly remove from the list
Of things you think you know about me
I am not sensitive and I am not bold
And I am not yours so I’m free
Track Name: It's A Lie
Stop me here stop me now
My skin is covered up with doubt
I’ll wring my heart till it’s all dried out
You never hurt me so you claimed
You’d hold onto my heart always
You wouldn’t drop it so it couldn’t break

It’s a lie, it’s a lie, it’s a lie
But I believe you honey anyway
It’s a lie, lie, lie, lie
But I like all the nice things that you say

Things were good they were okay
But I fucked it all up anyway
Cause honestly that’s what I do
And I can’t show my face you see
Because people expect more from me
And I find it hard to measure up

But I’m alive, I’m alive, I’m alive
Though I can’t bear to keep it up this way
I’m alive, I’m alive
But I’m gonna need more love than yesterday

I'm alright, I’m alright
I’ll snap out of it I always do
I’m alright, I’m alright
And I can’t wait to smile again at you
Track Name: Lite-Brite
I have a lite brite, It’s in my apartment
I got it for my 24th birthday because I always wanted one
I always always wanted one
And now that I have one it seems kind of lame
Even for a child’s game
The pegs get everywhere, the patterns are of paper
You must puncture the paper and you can’t reuse the paper
It doesn’t have the magic I thought it would

So I’m hoping you are much like my lite brite
A big disappointment then I won’t have to waste my time
Thinking thoughts of you

Or maybe you’re like cable I never had that either
No I never had that either ‘til I moved out on my own
Better than expected, I think I am addicted
To Keith and Rachel on MSNBC
Stacey tells me what not to wear on TLC
And in addition without my permission
Don’t tell a soul I watch The Hills on MTV
(hate spencer love LC)

So maybe you’re like cable
Better than expected and I would be addicted to
Changing all your channels
And I like you best when you’re on demand

Or maybe you’re like Nintendo
This is my last scenario
I never had that either you can see I was quite deprived as a child
I’d go over my friend’s house I’d play it at my friend’s house
But I would always get out I’d always lose my lives
Too many buttons, too much going on I’d lose my head
Then I’d give someone else a try

So maybe you’re like Nintendo
Really really awesome and every so often
I could come and play your game
But in the end we’d we, we both we both we both would see
You’re much too complex for a simple girl like me

Like the lite brite I hope you will be
