Tapes – Alanis Morissette

“I am someone easy to leave”
“Even easier to forget”
a voice, if inaccurate
Again: “I’m the one they all run from”
diatribes of clouded sun
someone help me find the pause button

All these tapes in my head swirl around
Keeping my vibe down
All these thoughts in my head aren’t my own
Wreaking havoc

“I’m too exhausting to be loved”
“a volatile chemical”
“best to quarantine and cut off”

All these tapes in my head swirl around
Keeping my vibe down
All these thoughts in my head aren’t my own
Wreaking havoc

“I’m but thorn in your sweet side”
“You are better off without me”
“It’d be best to leave at once”

All these tapes in my head swirl around
Keeping my vibe down
All these thoughts in my head aren’t my own
Wreaking havoc

When We Meet Again – Alanis Morissette

We said good-bye with so much left to say
We knew inside we’d find another way
We’ll have it all, it’s not too late to try
Maybe you and I could go from here
Maybe you and I can make it, this time we’ll…

[CHORUS:]
Fall in love when we meet again
We can finish what we started
Fall in love if we try again
And then nothing will keep us apart

We’re not the same as when we first began
We’ll try to change, we’ll take another chance
Maybe you and I could work it out
Maybe you and I can make it, this time we’ll

[CHORUS]

I see your face, it’s always on my mind
A time and palace we almost left behind
This time we’ll fall in, this time we’ll…

[CHORUS]

Mary Jane – Alanis Morissette

What’s the matter Mary Jane, you had a hard day
As you place the don’t disturb sign on the door
You lost your place in line again, what a pity
You never seem to want to dance anymore

It’s a long way down
On this roller coaster
The last chance streetcar
Went off the track
And you’re on it

I hear you’re counting sheep again Mary Jane
What’s the point of trying to dream anymore
I hear you’re losing weight again Mary Jane
Do you ever wonder who you’re losing it for

Well it’s full speed baby
In the wrong direction
There’s a few more bruises
If that’s the way
You insist on heading

Please be honest Mary Jane
Are you happy
Please don’t censor your tears

You’re the sweet crusader
And you’re on your way
You’re the last great innocent
And that’s why I love you

So take this moment Mary Jane and be selfish
Worry not about the cars that go by
All that matters Mary Jane is your freedom
Keep warm my dear, keep dry

Tell me
Tell me
What’s the matter Mary Jane…

Human Touch – Alanis Morissette

Give me what I’m askin’ for
Stop bringin’ me down or I’ll slam the door
You’re getting out of line with the Beverly Boys
You start makin’ the moves they start makin’
the noise

You know you’re not getting lucky
livin’ the life because you’re movin’ to
the jungle and paying the price
You’re livin’ right along with the
New Brady Bunch

Have your people call my people and let’s do lunch
Reaction to the actin there’s more to me
than human flesh
I’ve had enough distractions I need some tenderness

[CHORUS:]
Human Tough I gotta know it’s real
I’m tired of people sellin’ their sex appeal
Human Touch I need human love
no imitations of oh baby

A bird in the busy is worth two in
the street-you know the kind of people
never want to meet you’re sitting really
pretty in your swimming pool with your
rock ‘n roll tan you keep thinkin’ you’re
cool

You know you can’t reach Jesus on your
portable phone he ain’t speakin’ to the people
in their Hollywood homes with a toot
in your snoot and your loot to boot
you don’t even give a hoot about the
minds you pollute

Lookin’ for deceptions there’s more to me
than human flesh I’m finding new
directions I need some tenderness!

[CHORUS]

I’m lookin’ for the real thing there’s more
to me than human flesh I’m gonna
stop at nothin’

[CHORUS]

You can’t reach Alanis on her portable phone
it’ll be ringin’ off the hook ‘caus nobody’s home…
