One More Addiction – Natalie Imbruglia

First the good news
it’s gonna feel very nice
then the bad news
you gotta pay a heavy price
rip tide, we slide we ride on a deep forbidden sea
underwe go – o so slow
and you’re hanging onto me
and I say
oh oh one more addiction in my world
oh one more connection to let go
oh flowing down the river
out of sight forever (from my world)

it’s the only thing I know how to do
I reject you
but I can’t follow through
I’d forget you
but you’d end up tappin’ on my back door
somehow I lost myself
in a tunnel long and black
somewhere, at the end, I pretend
there’s a way of turning back
[chorus]

take a breath
let it out
all the things you frown about are meaningless of course,
unless you’re doing this for real I guess
I meant to but
I don’t know what
is in the way and could I say
it’s you I bet
I won’t forget
maybe I’m not ready yet
[chorus]

Butterflies – Natalie Imbruglia

Swallow purple terror candy
Don’t forget to breathe
Sickened by the wanting
And drowning from the need
This dichromatic vision
Of one who does not care
To sipping cocktail sedatives
Two months to hide somewhere
Butterflies, butterflies
Cut the stomach out and
Hand it over
Butterflies, butterflies
My heart will be
The bridge that
You walk over

The wolf has
Caught the chicken
And now I feel unsteady
Emotions on the blink again
So kick me
When you’re ready
Here lies a violet coffin
The death of my control
Along with all my skeletons
They put them in a hole

Sickened by the notion
I give myself again
Choking on the bullet
The gun that’s found a friend
So raise your glass to sorrow
And dring to all the pain
Tie a silver ribbon around
The pieces that remain

Butterflies, butterflies
Cut the stomach out and
Hand it over
Butterflies, butterflies
My heart will
Be the bridge that
You walk over

Hurricane – Natalie Imbruglia

It came on like a hurricane
And I don’t understand
And it moved me
Like a slow dance
Still I don’t understand
It pushed me like a tailwind
And I don’t understand
And it came in
Through the back door
And I don’t understand
Still I don’t understand
You’re all that I could need
And I’m falling on my knees

Hurricane
You pulled me out of the past
And landed me in today
Hurricane
You pulled me out of the past
And walked me into tomorrow
Hurricane

It picked me like a cherry
And I don’t understand
And it killed me with the craving
Still I don’t understand
It thrilled me to starvation
And I don’t understand
And it stripped me ugly naked
And I don’t understand
Still I don’t understand

You’re all that I could be
And I’m falling on my knees

Contradictions – Natalie Imbruglia

Seventeen years in a dead end job
telling his dreams to a deaf eared god
Hangin’ on tight by a single thread
prayin’ for a change.
Everything you could have sacrificed
your flesh and blood had it’s own sweet price
baby’s all grown up and moved away
where’s that leave you now?

It was your own decision
you made my life your mission.
Somebody tell me
it doesn’t make no sense at all
Somebody tell me
Why we’re living in a world of contradiction.
Somebody tell me
it doesn’t make no sense at all
Somebody tell me
why we’re living in a world of contradiction.

Why is it so hard to be understood?
Doing so much for the common good
sorry if I didn’t see the truth
the sadness in your eyes
I wanted to stand on my own two feet
looking at life as a one way street.
Thinking that I had it all worked out
where’s that leave me now?
We lost communication
too many expectations

Somebody tell me
it doesn’t make no sense at all
Somebody tell me
Why we’re living in a world of contradiction.
Somebody tell me
it doesn’t make no sense at all
Somebody tell me
Why we’re living in a world of contradiction.

Everything I have inside
I kept it wrapped up tight
All I know is ..
All I want to know is…
Somebody tell me.
Somebody tell me
it doesn’t make no sense at all
Somebody tell me
Why we’re living in a world of contradiction
In a world of contradiction.

Seventeen years in a dead end job
telling his dreams to a deaf eared god
Hangin’ on tight by a single thread
where’s that leave you now?
