ME- Paula Cole i am not the person who is singing i am the silent one inside i am not the one who laughs at people's jokes i just pacify their egos i am not my house or my car or my songs they are only just stops along my way i am like winter i'm a dark cold female with a golden ring of wisdom in my cave CHORUS: and it is me who is my enemy me who beats me up me who makes the monsters me who strips my confidence i am carrying my voice i am carrying my heart i am carrying my rhythm i am carrying my prayers but you can't kill my spirit it's soaring and it's strong like a mountain i go on and on but when my wings are folded the brightly colored moth blends into the dirt into the ground chorus and it's me who's too weak and it's me who's too shy to ask for the thing i love and it's me who's too weak and it's me who's too shy to ask for the thing i love that i love (6 times) i am walking on the bridge i am over the water and i'm scared as hell but i know there's something better yes i know there's something yes i know, i know, yes i know that i love (5 times overlapping chorus) but it's me and it's me but it's me (4 times) Tiger- Paula Cole where do i put this fire this bright red feeling this tiger lily down to mouth he wants to grow to twenty feet tall CHORUS: i've left bethlehem i feel free i've left the girl i was supposed to be and someday i'll be born i'm so tired of being shy i'm not that girl anymore i'm not that straight A anymore i want to sit with my legs wide open and laugh so loud that the whole damn restaurant will turn and look at me and say look at the tiger jumping out of her mouth chorus no more sex-starved teachers trying to touch my ass i can finally be a teenager at age twenty-six go to hell lions, tigers, and bears i'm not afraid of you anymore and my fear broke apart like fifty balloons and i'm thrown around the room like party confetti now chorus someday i'll be born someday someday someday i'll be born someday someday someday i'll be born high and noon (13 times) Building A Mystery- Sarah McLachlan you come out at night that's when the energy comes and the dark side's light and the vampires roam you strut your rasta wear and

it doesn't mean anything at all the life I've left behind me is a cold room I've crossed the last line from where I can't return where every step I took in faith betrayed me and led me from my home sweet surrender is all that I have to give you take me in no questions asked you strip away the ugliness that surrounds me are you an angel am I already that gone I only hope that I won't disappoint you when I'm down here on my knees sweet surrender is all that I have to give sweet surrender is all that I have to give and I don't understand by the touch of your hand I would be the one to fall I miss the little things I miss everything it doesn't mean much it doesn't mean anything at all the life I left behind me is a cold room sweet surrender is all that I have to give sweet surrender is all that I have to give Do What You Have To Do- Sarah McLachlan what ravages of spirit conjured this tempestuous rage created you a monster broken by the rules of love and fate has lead you through it you do what you have to do and fate has led you through it you do what you have to do and I have the sense to recognize that I don't know how to let you go every moment marked with apparitions of your soul I'm ever swiftly moving trying to escape this desire the yearning to be near you I do what I have to do the yearning to be near you I do what I have to do but I have the sense to recognize that I don't know how to let you go I don't know how to let you go a glowing ember burning hot burning slow deep within I'm shaken by the violence of existing for only you I know I can't be with you I do what I have to do I know I can't be with you I do what I have to do and I have sense to recognize but I don't know how to let you go I don't know how to let you go Witness- Sarah McLachlan make me a witness take me out out of darkness out of doubt I won't weigh you down with good intention won't make fire out of clay or other inventions will we burn in heaven like we do down here will the change come while we're waiting everyone is waiting and when we're done soul searching as we carried the weight and died for the cause is misery made beautiful right before our eyes will mercy be revealed or blind us where we stand will we burn in heaven like we do down here will the change come while we're waiting everyone is waiting will we burn in heaven like we do down here will the change come while we're waiting everyone is waiting Angel- Sarah McLachlan spend all your time waiting for that second chance for a break that would make it okay there's always one reason to feel not good enough and it's hard at the end of the day I need some distraction oh beautiful release memory seeps from my veins let me be empty and weightless and maybe I'll find some peace tonight in the arms of the angel fly away from here from this dark cold hotel room and the endlessness that you fear you are pulled from the wreckage of your silent reverie you're in the arms of the angel may you find some comfort here so tired of the straight line and everywhere you turn there's vultures and thieves at your back storm keeps on twisting you keep on building the lies that you make up for all that you lack it don't make no difference escaping one last time it's easier to believe in this sweet madness oh this glorious sadness that brings me to my knees in the arms of the angel fly away from here from this dark cold hotel room and the endlessness that you fear you are pulled from the wreckage of your silent reverie you're in the arms of the angel may you find some comfort here you're in the arms of the angel may you find some comfort here
