"Dear Frustrated Superstar" by Nerina Pallot, which was released in 2004 and consists of 13 songs.
Brother won't you look at the sky
There's something burning so bright
And what it is I can't see
But I think it's coming at me.
Did you get here in a rocket
And did you journey through space?
Did your mother never scold you
Oh when she looked at your face?
Do you know where you come from?
Blood Is Blood
Tinkerbell, my winged friend, I think we got it wrong.
No fairy tale or happy ending, just prehistoric songs.
A crystal in my baby's eyes, I want what I can't love
So now i've learnt how to despise, I think i've learnt enough.....
If blood is blood, then blood will flow -
That's all it does, that's all it knows
But i've one question, I want something,
I want more.
So flesh is flesh, an urgent fire
Love is the one thing to rely on
And as long as we all have today, we'll be okay.
Six o'clock, so you feed the kids
And you pack them off to school
Take a drive through your secret life
It's a mystery to you.
It's not the way you thought that it would be....
But love is the stuff that we depend on
Dear Frustrated Superstar
Dear Frustrated Superstar, your mother's waiting in the car
To whisk you off to your new premiere
And all the friends who knew your name
Are waiting, wondering what became
Of the girl that they once knew but never loved
They never loved.
So every city tells the lie
Of beggars, tramps and butterflies
Of all these things, then what am I?
God is good, I never understood
All the darkness in his soul.
And God made man, the only way he can,
But for a heart he left a hole..
And it's killing you
And it's killing me too
Are we failing the truth?
I'm betting on desire, i'm betting on deceit
If I Know You
Well it could have been a Sunday
Or it could have been the next day
Or it could have been any day at all
And it could have been a good day
Or a very very bad day
When you made your grand arrival, I can recall
But if I know you
You'll come sailing through the starlight in the blue
And if I know you
Oh good Lord above, i'm immune to the love of a good man
I go for the suckers, the mean motherf*ckers I can't resist.
If I should get bitten. As long as he's smitten I understand
That pain comes with pleaure, such bittersweet treasure cannot be missed.
So how could you help me now?
I can't help myself....
I go on and jump, give it a try
Checking the parachute, see if it flies.
My Last Tango
Thousands, no millions of hours
We've been skirting around this whole subject
Like children stuck in a museum.
And i'm dry now.
My mouth will not speak, i'm weary and weak
And I only wanted to see you again.
If that's unfair, just let me know,
Just write it down, and then i'll go.
Been good, been bad, got worse, got better.
I feel I know myself when i'm looking in the mirror.
Been hurt, been loved - I'm scarred, not bitter.
I am an angel with the knowledge of a sinner.
But what do I do, and how should I be?
When I look at myself, I can only see me....
I need a little patience...
Been hard, been soft, been both, been neither
I don't know where I go wrong -
Everything I do just takes so long.
I don't know what's up with me
I'm swinging from a branch of my family tree...
So give me some of yours then, if you think it might get better
If you're sure you've got the answer, you know i'm going to let you...
Oh, you know it, you're shining like the rainbow
And the birds and bees all know your name
I could be black, I could be blue, I could be anything for you
Guess it's true -
I only ever wanted to be with you.
And now I find i've lost my way to go...
I always mess it up
You should have known i'm not reliable.
And now, when i'm tired,
I can't get to sleep.
Oh, My thoughts won't desert me
And I cannot dream.
The colours haved changed, only grey in my life
Very Good Sir
Very good sir, getting better
Could be amazing if you'd try.
Such a sweet boy, very Catholic
Eyes so beautifully wide.
But i'm just a bloodhound, really.
Hunting with the pack - I do it well.
I only chase to pass the time.
I have been desperately wondering if you want me lately
I only need to see a sign.
Watch Out Billie
And my confession would have you on the floor
- if you knew the truth
But that's the way they want you -
Everyone's a sucker for the haze of youth
We're all prairie children, brought up on the lies of the past
So it's no surprise then - you will have to ask....
Watch out Billie 'fore you go to fast
You say it couldn't hurt, but then it couldn't last
You get fifteen minutes while they're watching you
