lyrics

She says, “This time it will be different.
This time you'll be fine.
If you just take me, I'll be your friend,
and make everything all right.”
And it's not that I really want her,
but I can't say I don't
I let her in cos she's my friend
who's always there when I'm alone

I let her in out of habit
I let her in cos I'm bored

When I take her down and give her a spin,
in my mind she's pirouetting down the drain,
but when I look, it's my glass that she's found.
And every morning I feel the pain
I wish that I could pour her down the drain,
but it's so hard each night she comes around.
And she's pulling me, pulling me down.

And maybe I went off the deep end,
never tried to swim back up,
just flailed my arms and legs a bit,
and then decided just to float
Cos I had a blind date set with Temperance,
but I never showed
Cos my old friend, she called me again,
and said, “Meet me up the road”

She'll give you what you want until you kick her out the door
She'll give you what you want until you don't want it no more
She'll give you what you wanted til you're crawling to her on the floor
She'll give you what you wanted til you want it baby,
And she's got me.

Val Bauer Portland, Oregon

From Portland, Oregon, Val Bauer writes songs of earnest confessionalism, following in the songwriter tradition but built on a pop-punk foundation. Val's music is about the struggle, but also the optimism that it's possible to not have to accept what's given us; that we're all fighting the same fight, and that we're not alone. ... more
