Re: new bg lyrics--lonlst in th'mornin'



apparently the attachment of the lyrics to the new Julie Doiron didn't work 
out for some people.  Am sending the file incorporated in the body of 
the message.  Enjoy!  Again, any corrections more than appreciated.

These lyrics initially compiled by Andre Muise 
(amuise\!/ustanne.ednet.ns.ca).  They are freely distributable as far
as I am concerned, just give credit where credit is due, i.e., to the compiler, that
 being me, and to the artist, that being Julie Doiron.  Julie has told me that she has 
nothing against the distribution of these lyrics, just give credit.  Version 1.0.


1. So fast

You seemed so young
You didn't notice how fast 
Those things would come to you

You seemed so fast 
You didn't notice how slow
Those things should come to you

        And you've changed
        How strange
        And I didn't even get to explain
        I do, I do

You seemed so dumb
You didn't notice how wrong
Those things were meant for you
 
You seemed so lost
I know you didn't ever notice me
I tried looking out for you

        And you've changed
        How strange
        And I didn't even get to explain
        I do, I do


2. Dance me (2:50)

Hold me close to you
Dance with me now
Feel me smile, feel my smile
Hold me close to you

I will try to love more
Often
I will learn
I do love the things 
Around me
I love you

Take me with you, dear.
If I say please, will you, dear?
Hold me close tonight
Dance me slow, dance me right

I will try to love more
Often
I will learn
I do love the things 
Around me
I love you


3. Sorry part I (2:16)

I'm sorry but I can't tell you anything
You'll have to figure it out alone
I didn't write that one to be explained
I only wrote just what came out

I'm sorry
I'm sorry, you've all been so nice
Forgive me
Forgive me

I am not what I seem to be
Though I can be anything that I want
I am inspired to make little things
But there's not a whole lot more that I want

I'm sorry
I'm sorry, you've all been so nice
Forgive me
Forgive me


4. Tell you again (2:21)

Turn out the light and close your eyes and hold me next to you
Dream of my smile, sounds of my voice and feel my blood rush through
My arms and my legs, my hands and my toes, my feet, my fingers, too.
I'll tell you softly as you fall asleep I'll only dream of you.

Lazy and hazy, tired and confused but still my thought is clear
So much time will pass on from now and still I will be here
Laughing and talking and yelling and crying and dreaming I am with 
you
I'll tell you softly as you fall asleep I'll only dream of you.
I'll tell you again as I fall asleep I'll only dream of you.


5. Explain (2:11)

I can't explain
Everyone keeps saying
Same thing
You must be sad

I guess I'll tell you
It's not the same thing
It took a while but I'm doing ok

We played a long time
We got along fine
And just like you I can't believe it's through.

Believe it.

Me and you.

I'm on my own now
I play alone now
I'd like to say that I'm kind of scared

What if I lose it
I've been known to panic
I make myself sick 'cause I've got bad nerves

I've got bad nerves.

Oh my nerves.


Crying baby (2:09)

Crying baby
Crying mother
That's what I am

Fading softly
Slowly fading
Shaped (or shake?) to steady my hands

Steady me, steady me
Hold me down, you should not let me go

Pacifier
Soothing rubber
That's what we need

Drink your milk now
It might calm you down
I'm too tired to cry

Steady me, steady me
Hold me down, you should not let me go

Stay with me, stay with me
Hold my arms, you should not let me go.


Sweeter (1:33)

Sure is nice to see you
You look good these days
Talking's not so easy
I wish I had more to say

And you turn away, and I wonder
Was it something I said?
And what can I do to make this change?

Your smile is a sweetness (or sweetener?)
It really makes my day
And you get sweeter and sweeter
In every possible way

Then you turn away, and I wonder
Was it something I said?
And what can I do to make this change?


Tonight, we sleep (3:26)

Didn't mean to wake you up
Guess I couldn't sleep
Tried to sleep out on the couch
But that's not where I want to be

And I'm so tired
It's late
And you're so tired
I can't wait

Wanted to explain something
Not quite sure what that was
And when you finally talked to me
Forgotten what was on my mind

And I'm so tired
It's late
And you're so tired
I can't wait


9. mother (2:29)

I wanta to be a good mother
But I don't know if I am
I wanta be like no other 
Kind of mother, if I can

It took you nine months just to get here
It's taken nine more months for me
To figure out just how to get you through
The things you have to do

There will be more
I know I will
I will


10. Love to annoy (2:34)

I love to be annoyed by you
No one else can annoy me like you
I love to be held only by you
No one else can hold me like you do

And I wonder why I was so lucky
To find someone nothing like me
Still understanding every part of me
I can imagine us any differently

I love to be annoyed by you
No one else can annoy me like you
I love to be held only by you
No one else can hold me like you do

I love to be annoyed by you
I love to be annoyed by you
I love to be annoyed by you
I love to be annoyed by you


11. creative depression (2:24)

I'll tell you, today
I'm not feeling ok
Maybe tomorrow I will

I'll show you a little bit
It's what I've done all through it
Creative depression, oh

All my life I've smiled
Until now, now I'm down

Must be age, I'm sure it's not
Could be time but there's still lots
I must have changed somehow

I feel lost, but I've won
I have my mate and my son
Oh my wonderful son

All my life I've smiled
Until now, now I'm down

Things are good, 'cause they change
I am good, I will


12. Sorry part II (2:49)

I'm sorry I called you
I just want to say hello
And hear how you're doing
But now I just want to go

I'm scared and I'm tired all the time 
I'm lonely and lost all the time
Time, time, time, time, there is none
I won't bring you down this time, yeah.

I'm sorry I came here
I just want to see how you are
Tell me you're ok
And tell me you're glad I came here


13. condescending you (

Upset
Lost it
I need more
I need a 
Number
I won't be alone

You questioned me once
Once before
Too much
To say
Too long today

And I need more
Could I be more vague?
Condensing you
I can see more
Could you be more clear?
You have some nerve

I am
OK
Sometimes I
Am in 
Control
And I find

Something 
Goes wrong
I can't explain 
I regret
Feel it
Better days

And I need more
Could I be more vague?
Condensing you
I can see more
Could you be more clear?
You have some nerve


14. le soleil (2 :44) (translated by Andre Muise)

Je ne veux pas ouvrir mes yeux			I don't want to open my eyes
Le soleil est trop fort				The sun is too strong
Et je ne veux ni fermer mes yeux			Nor do I want to close my eyes	
Je veux tout voir					I want to see it all

Quand je m'ennuie				When I tire
Je pense a toi.					I think of you

Et j'ai envie de parler				And I feel like talking
Mais je suis toute seule				But I'm all alone
Et quand il y a du monde ici			And when there are people here
Je ferme la gueule				I shut my mouth

Quand je m'ennuie				When I tire
Je pense a toi.					I think of you
Je veux dormir					I want to sleep
Je pense a toi					I think of you
