Alanis Morissette

A Year Like This One – Alanis Morissette

After a year like this one
I’m surprised I do not hate your guts and
After a year like this one
I’m surprised I still love music just as much

After a year like this one
I’m surprised I do not “eat my eye”?
After a year like this one
I’m sorry if I’m not cordial to every one

CHORUS:
La La La La La La La La De Di De Di La La La La Li
La La La La La La La La De Di De Di La La Li Li Li
La La La La La La La La De Di De Di La Di Da Di Di
La La la de di wo oh oh o…

After a year like this one
I’m surprised I am convinced at all and
After a year like this one
I do not roll my eyes at less than another

After a year like this one
I can’t help but wonder how they’ve been and
After a year like this one
I think I’ll leave it all to my next of kin…

CHORUS

After a year like this one
I’m surprised we’re all not weeping drunks and
After a year like this one
I want you to choose the restaurant and then

After a year like this one
I’ll need a good whole 16 months alone and
After a year like this one
I think I’ll thank the west coast beaches I came home.

CHORUS

A Man – Alanis Morissette

I am a man as a man I’ve been told
Bacon is brought to the house in this mold
Born of your bellies I yearn for the cord
Years I have groveled repentance ignored

And I have been blamed
And I have repented
I’m working my way toward our union mended

I am man who has grown from a son
Been crucified by enraged women
I am son who was raised by such men
I’m often reminded of the fools I’m among

And I have been shamed
And I have relented
I’m working my way toward our union mended
And I have been shamed
And I have repented
I’m working my way toward our union mended

we don’t fare well with endless reprimands
we don’t do well with a life served as a sentence
this won’t work well if you’re hell bent on your offence
I am a man who understands your resistance

I am a man who still does what he can
to dispel our archaic reputation
I am a man who has heard all he can
cuz I don’t fare well with endless punishment

Cuz I have been blamed and I have repented
I’m working my way toward our union mended
And we have been blamed and we have repented
I’m working my way toward our union mended

21 Things I Want In A Lover – Alanis Morissette

Do you derive joy when someone else succeeds?
Do you not play dirty when engaged in competition?
Do you have a big intellectual capacity but know
That it alone does not equate wisdom?
Do you see everything as an illusion?
But enjoy it even though you are not of it?
Are you both masculine and feminine? politically aware?
And don’t believe in capital punishment?

These are 21 things that I want in a lover
Not necessarily needs but qualities that I prefer

Do you derive joy from diving in and seeing that
Loving someone can actually feel like freedom? are you funny?
?? la self-deprecating? like adventure? and have many formed opinions?

These are 21 things that I want in a lover
Not necessarily needs but qualities that I prefer
I figure I can describe it since I have a choice in the matter
These are 21 things I choose to choose in a lover

I’m in no hurry I could wait forever
I’m in no rush cuz I like being solo
There are no worries and certainly no pressure in the meantime
I’ll live like there’s no tomorrow

Are you uninhibited in bed? more than three times a week?
Up for being experimental? are you athletic?
Are you thriving in a job that helps your brother? are you not addicted? …curious and communicative…

Walk Away – Alanis Morissette

A downtown caf? Saturday evenin’ and the
place is about to be closed I’m meeting my baby
yeah and order my hundreath cup of coffee today
My hands are shakin’

At half past seven I’m sittin here waitin’ for
my boy all alone for too long It’s after eleven
yeah I’m tired of waitin’ and I’m gonna go home
cause I don’t need this

You never think twice before you break all the rules
you gotta be crazy if you think I’m a fool

CHORUS:
I’ll walk away and say good bye
If you don’t want me anymore
I’ve bot my pride
I’ll walk away and say good bye
if I don’t get the love we had before
not satisfied

He finally gets here I’m waitin’ for him to ask me
why there’s a frown on my face He orders a
cold beer he has an excuse about his car
breakin’ down but I don’t buy it
You’re givin’ me sometin’ I don’t need anymore
Just gimme the word and I’ll be slammin’ the door

CHORUS

His best intentians are never the same as what
he does of the end of the day. I’m feelin’ the
tension yeah Don’t gimme no reasons cause you
don’t comprehend what am I feelin’
You never think twice before you break all the rules
You gotta be crazy if you think I’m a fool
You’re givin’ me somethin’ I don’t need anymore
Just gimme the word and I’ll be slammin’ the door

CHORUS

So tell me now Just say the word
It won’t be long
I’ll be long long gone…

Wake Up – Alanis Morissette

You like snow but only if it’s warm
You like rain but only if it’s dry
No sentimental value to the rose that fell on your floor
No fundamental excuse for the granted I’m taken for
Cause it’s easy not to
So much easier not to
And what goes around never comes around to you
You like pain but only if it doesn’t hurt too much
You sit…and you wait…to receive
There’s an obvious attraction
To the path of least resistance in you life
There’s an obvious aversion no amount of my insistence
could make you try tonight
Cause it’s easy not to
So much easier not to
And what goes around never comes around to you
To you to you to you to you to you…
There’s no love no money no thrill anymore
There’s an apprehensive naked little trembling boy
With his head in his hands
There’s an underestimated and impatient little girl
Raising her hand
But it’s easy not to
So much easier not to
And what goes around never comes around to you
To you, to you
get up get up get up off of it
get up get up get up off of it
get out get outta here enough already
get up get up get up off of it
wake up

Narcissus – Alanis Morissette

Dear momma’s boy I know you’ve had your butt licked by your mother
I know you’ve enjoyed all that attention from her
And every woman graced with your presence after
Dear narcissus boy I know you’ve never really apologized for anything
I know you’ve never really taken responsibility
I know you’ve never really listened to a woman

Dear me-show boy I know you’re not really into conflict resolution
Or seeing both sides of every equation
Or having an uninterrupted conversation

And any talk of healthiness
And any talk of connectedness
And any talk of resolving this
Leaves you running for the door

(why why do I try to love you
Try to love you when you really don’t want me
To)

Dear egotist boy you’ve never really had to suffer any consequence
You’ve never stayed with anyone longer than ten minutes
You’d never understand anyone showing resistance
Dear popular boy I know you’re used to getting everything so easily
A stranger to the concept of reciprocity
People honor boys like you in this society

And any talk of selflessness
And any talk of working at this
And any talk of being of service
Leaves you running for the door

(why why do I try to help you try to help you
When you really don’t want me to)

You go back to the women who will dance the dance
You go back to your friends who will lick your ass
You go back to ignoring all the rest of us
You go back to the center of your universe

Dear self centered boy I don’t know why I still feel affected by you
I’ve never lasted very long with someone like you
I never did although I have to admit I wanted to
Dear magnetic boy you’ve never been with anyone who doesn’t take your shit
You’ve never been with anyone who’s dared to call you on it
I wonder how you’d be if someone were to call you on it

And any talk of willingness
And any talk of both feet in
And any talk of commitment
Leaves you running for the door

(why why do I try to change you try to
Try to change you when you really don’t
Want me to)

You go back to the women who will dance the dance
You go back to your friends who will lick your ass
You go back to being so oblivious
You go back to the center of the universe

Baba – Alanis Morissette

I’ve seen them kneel
with baited breath for the ritual
I’ve watched this experience raise
them to pseudo higher levels
I’ve watched them leave their families
in pursuit of your nirvana
I’ve seen them coming to line up from switzerland and america
Chorus:
How long will this take baba
How long have we been sleeping
Do you see me hanging on to every word you say
How soon will I be holy
How much will this cost guru
How much longer ’til you completely absolve me
I’ve seen them give their drugs up
in place of makeshift altars
I’ve heard them chanting
kali kali frantically
I’ve heard them rotely repeatly your
teaching with elitism
I’ve seen them boasting robes and
foreign sandalwood beads
[Chorus]
I’ve seen them overlooking god in
their own essence
I’ve seen their upward glances
in hopes of instant salvation
i’ve seen their righteousness
mixed without loving compassion
i’ve watched you smile as
the student bow to kiss your feet
[Chorus]
Give me strength all knowing one
how long ’till enlightenment
how much longer ’til you
completely absolve me
