- Beauty Rarely What are the requirements of a beauty pageant ...
- Spit Me Out Swallow me whole If you think you can Breathe ...
- Smart Girls boys don't like smart girls they like
- Drop Dead I shoplifted from your height and got me ...
- Light Sleeper I once dreamed I could sleep You were there,...
- White Flag, Dark Cloud dark cloud surrender take me ...
- Bones I drink just enough water to stay alive I eat only ...

if that's what it takes

''My pillow is as good as any oceanI Liked You When I Thought I was Dead
to drown in the nightmare of myself.
I swam all the way here from the moon.''
