Becoming – Jewel Kilcher

Listen, heart
Listen close-listen
2 the melancholy
Melody of your own voice
I am weary of my own dreaming
I am tired of waiting
So this time, I’m leaping

[CHORUS]

I reach-beyond myself 2 see
What I find, beyond my mind, there is no time
In this place beyond my sight
My heart knows what is not yet seen
I’m witnessing my own becoming

Lash myself 2 the
Mantle of my desire-I will
Turn from its temptations
But the wanting takes me higher

I am hurting
Oh, I am not yet born
I am the mother and the father
Of what is not yet known
Darkness surrounds me
I scratch, I struggle, I breathe

[CHORUS]

My Favorite Things – Jewel Kilcher

Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens
Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens
Brown paper packages tied up with strings
These are a few of my favorite things

Cream colored ponies and crisp apple streudels
Doorbells and sleigh bells and schnitzel with noodles
Wild geese that fly with the moon on their wings
These are a few of my favorite things

Girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes
Snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes
Silver white winters that melt into springs
These are a few of my favorite things

When the dog bites
When the bee stings
When I’m feeling sad
I simply remember my favorite things
And then I don’t feel so bad

[Repeat all verses]

Words Get in the Way – Jewel Kilcher

Come here buttercup
Let me fill you up
Can’t you see i’m the blue in your skies
You can tell by the stars in my eyes
Dawn always comes too soon
It hurts me like a bruise
There’s a hole in my pillow
Where you used to be
It feels like a hole in the middle of me

[Chorus:]
Oh, oh, oh just take my hand
To have and hold if not obey
Oh, oh, oh say you’re still my man
I’ll try to find the words to say
That i want you always to stay
To wake up with you every single day
But words get in the way
Words get in the way

Tell your boss you’re dead
And let’s go back to bed
You make me want to break out in song
But everytime i try it just comes out wrong

[Chorus]

I leave a message on your answering machine
I try to say what i really mean

[Chorus]

Only One Too – Jewel Kilcher

I am talking but you can’t quite hear what I say
I come closer
but you push me away
I should leave
but I don’t have the strength
I can’t think

Please can’t you see that I am down on my knees
My heart’s in you hand
and you squeeze
I want the whole thing
but you give me a part
it’s time to start
so I push and you pull
and I don’t know which way to go

[Chorus]
Stop Me, Stop me from falling
cause I can see
See where this is going
If you love me
then why do you leave me
if you need me
then I’ll love you only
when I am the only one, too

I just can’t make you understand
I want your heart but you hold up your hand
you say space is what you need
but you want me
to be true
to just you
while you get to do whatever you want to

[Chorus]

[Bridge:]
You’ll never stop
it’s gotta change
you don’t want a lover
you want a world of slaves
I can’t resist falling into those arms
those boyish charms
you think I won’t leave
yes you’re good, but not so good I can’t see

Stop me,
I can see where this is going
if you love me, yea!

[Chorus]
