On Cue 02:31
Did I Miss My Cue? ©Stephen K. Donnelly Verse: D G G/F# G/E Just like Kurt Cobain I proceed in shame Although unlike he I’ve got no apologies Thought I had no use For the self-abuse The rat is in the trap And I can’t bring it back Chorus G A Coming in on cue Is all I want to do Coming in on cue Did I miss my cue? You say it’s all timing I should quit my whining It’s all in who you know Maybe who you blow I’m so pessimistic Nothing automatic Where is the horizon Where the hell have I been? Chorus Solo I spiral down the drain And bubble up again I'm hopping on the wagon And falling off the train I'm 20 dollars short I'm 20 seconds late I can't write it off to another twist of fate Chorus Chorus End
Whole 02:31
Whole ©2017 Stephen K. Donnelly SOCAN/ASCAP G Em Walking round with a hole in the picture A hole in the picture you see Walking round with a piece of the puzzle A piece of the puzzle missing C Em And I thought it could be you But it turned out be untrue G Em Walking round with the glass half empty The glass half empty of me Walking round trying to fill a vessel A vessel that’s full of leaks C Em Tried to fill that cup Could not top it up C D I tried and tried, what else can I do? C Em 3x I tried to make you whole D But I just couldn't do it G Em 2x instrumental Verse Walking round thinking you’re too negative You’re too negative to me Started thinking if you’re two negative I should be positive three C Em 3x And it's sitting on my shoulder As I get a little older C D I try to think it could be something better than it is Chorus Solo Chorus
I've seen a lot of things; I haven't seen a lot of things The places that I've been don't mean that much to me I think I've had enough of people claiming that they've got it rough When they're OK, they've got their life and they're still sane Time just passes by, sometimes grab it sometimes let it slide You would say I let the minutes rule my day Situation's worse when the feelings are reversed So you'd have me believe, so you'd have me leave... CH You might cry a lot; and maybe you should I don't cry a lot; maybe I should (Short solo) As I hold you in my arms, try to shelter you from all harm It's the cause that occupies my every thought Keep you here with me, hide you from the misery The world outside, keep you from the joy that died As I leave you here, hit the road yet another year I take a piece of you with me and hold it near The corner in my mind where I put it now is where I hide As I sit here alone, so far from home... Chorus, solo, chorus
Exes In Duplexes She said: we'll only fall in love I said isn’t that good enough She said i want to make a lot of babies I said ... that’s a big maybe i said i'm all about the possibilities She said i’m all about spontaneity Never thought i could have what i already have Never thought i’d be where i already am Could we be more than just exes in duplexes Could we have more than just complexes in complexes Could we feel more than just repeated punches in the solar plexus? Or just… exes in duplexes She said let’s go for a swim I took a plunge I dove right in She said that I’m in love Problem is, it’s with someone else Chorus She said I’m tired of rollercoasters It’s like taking baths with a toaster I can’t believe what people are capable of Or what I did in the name of love Chorus Chorus Chorus
Turn Me Down 02:51
Do I whistle along to your favorite song on the radio? Do I snore at night when you're trying to get some shut-eye? Do I tell you things that you don’t want to hear, or do I? If I had a volume control and could shut myself off would I? Turn me down I'm automatic Turn me down You're unsympathetic To my unrequited sound So turn me down. If I offer you a compromise or affection, (just) turn me down. Don't cover your ears you know it's no solution Instead of walking away in rejection, turn me down All you need is a little isolation... to dull my sound. Chorus Instrumental Break Is Stairway to Heaven playing at the high-school dance? Should I work up the nerve to ask you, should I take a chance? Am I the freshly bleached set of sheets on your hotel bed? Am I the annoying earworm that's stuck in your head? Chorus
Jubilation - is in my brain Isolation - it's gone again Situation - is so insane Repetition - is getting lame And I would like to think you know what you're talking about But for now, I beg to disagree (I disagree) Beg to disagree (I disagree) Your point, I see, but I beg to disagree Repetition - we're at square one Demolition - it's all undone Redirection - of what I'll Predilection - to anarchy And I would like to believe what you say is true But for now, I beg to disagree
Not necessarily in this order: friendship is not a light you can't turn it off when you've had enough friendship is not a bulb you can't flick a switch to light it back up not black and white not binary you see what you mean means so much more to me you manipulate it freely to serve your purposes expect me to follow provide my services you cut me off i'm on then off wanted then not i've had enough get away from that switch stop pushing me in the ditch i'm not a piece of work you can crumple and pitch friendship is not a light you put out when it becomes a chore friendship is not a switch that you can flick when you get bored
See You Fall 02:50
See You Fall D A G D D A G I lived through some rock and roll days... Hope I die in a rock and roll way If I do then at least you can say That you knew me You could say that we had a thing A couple of kids and a couple of rings I didn't wear mine for very long... So sue me. If you've got one claim to fame Even if it's somewhat lame You're immortalized in song I guess that's something... As days turn to years, maybe Things won't seem so weird Maybe I won't be so mean, but For now there's just one thing... I'd really like to see you fall I really want to see you fall Doesn't make much sense at all I want to see you fall... I’m glad you saved yourself At the expense of everyone else Or maybe it was me who Should have run Never thought I’d get to say in my life ( Expletive deleted ) Stir up trouble when you stir with a knife... Wish I had one And I really want to see you fall
