I Don't Need The Booze

(toni dae/joy swines)
I've been known to tie one on and honky tonk til half past three
But the party don't get started til my baby pours her love on me
She's a hundred proof, lord she's smooth
She makes me moan all night long
So i don't need the booze to get a buzz on
I've tried it all from tennessee whiskey
To ozark mountain moonshine
But it's her sweet love that packs the punch
And keeps me higher than a georgia pine
Mr southern comfort don't come in a bottle
I get a double shot of love home grown
So i don't need booze to get a buzz on
My little country girl makes my head whirl and my knees begin to shake
No i can't walk no chalk line i ain't a talking or a thinking straight
I'm hooked on my baby's love there ain't nothing in a jug this strong
And i don't need the booze to get a buzz on
I've tried it all from tennessee whiskey
To ozark mountain moonshine
Bu it's her sweet love that packs the punch
And keeps me higher than a georgia pine
Mr southern comfort don't come in a bottle
I get a double shot of love home grown
So i don't need booze to get a buzz on
I wear a blue ribbon grin every now and then
But i don't need that to get stoned
I don't need the booze to get a buzz on
No i don't need the booze to get a buzz on

You Don't Need To Put A Supernova In The Window

You don't need to put a supernova in a window
like a candle in a telescope
to help me find my way back to you
from the next galaxy over. I'm gone
like a sixties light show after the music was over.

But I didn't close you like a door behind me,
I didn't find you like a threshold
in the spirit's lost and found
and try to return you to the house you belonged to.

I've always been a little ahead of myself
so when I said good-bye, it will be light years yet
before you know anything about it.
It's just that time doesn't linger in the doorway
of enlightenment, and eternity isn't any closer to God

than the next moment is. A hundred billion stars
two thousand lightyears away and you,
checking the wiring on blasting caps in a beaver dam
that's threatening to flood the road you're on
as I go off like a firefly already
two mellenia into the future that's looking forward
to meeting you eye to eye in a brighter place than this

just to see if you recognize me as I am.
Black matter in the lifemask of a blossom
peaking through the keyhole of the universe next door
to see if I've returned to my room like the moon
with a curfew it's in my nature to break forever

whenever we are, if the timing's not right.
If you can't see in the dark what the light owes
to the shadows who have died for it
just to attract your attention from afar again

like a man who's been tarred and feathered
and set aflame like a phoenix in the rootfires of the sumac.
Like an immolation that scatters the ashes of a burning house
all over the garden you've been tending
like a urnful of flowers about to come out.
Like a candle in the darkness enlightenment
snuffed out on the dark side of the moon
to keep you from being lost in the blazing like a star at noon.

I lead you away from me, like all I've ever wanted.
I say good-bye to keep death from saying hello along the way
as if it had met you somewhere before I came on the scene
like a flame thrower with a flare for arson burning
like the passion flower of a dragon on a pyre beside the Ganges.
To raise you up shining out of the grave of your aspirations
like lightning and fireflies in the updraft of my expedient means.
So when you cry over someone you're missing like me,
your tears have the power of a sunflower in the garden after dark,
and the ashes turn green. And scarlet runners bind themselves
like the happy home fires of heretics to the triune axes of your tent poles.

I Don't Need A Drink

I don't need a drink
I'm drunk with
Nature's light and sound
Drunk with the gift of
Each day of life
Drunk with the thought that
I'm here to stay
For another day!

We don't need.

We don't need to be bullied or hurt till we cry,

By men abusers who think they can control you and I;

One of these days. They'll get paid back, for what they do,

So ladies out there, we need to protect us and our children too.


We don't need the pushing and hitting till we are so sore,

We don't need either them to lock us inside our door;

These monsters who think they can rule the roost each day,

So ladies we need to tell God, so why not Pray.


We don't need to have the anxiety and worry and fear,

We definitely don't need them to bring us to tear;

These madmen. And control freaks They just want to fight,

So ladies let's stand up together, and all unite.

I Don't Need You

I don't need you.
I don't need friendship.
I don't need flowers in the Spring.
I don't need you.
And you surely don't want me.
I don't need love and affection.
I don't peace and harmony.
I don't need you.
And you surely don't need me.
CHORUS:
But we both want it bad enough.
Yes, we both want it. Don't we?
I don't need you baby.
And I know you don't need me.
I don't need your loving arms around me.
All I need is to be free.
That's what I keep telling myself.
And I tell you, you don't need me.
I don't need children in my old age.
No more cluttered leaves around the tree.
And I don't need you baby.
And I know you don't need me.
Rpt. Chorus
And we don't need each other, baby.
We don't need each other, baby.
Or do we?

Only The Strong Survive

You may not know this but you are everything youve ever needed.
Heaven with a touch of new york. silver with a touch of gold.
And I can see where youre goin, but I dont really know the way.
Its got too many changes, too much rearranging,
Too many ways to go astray.
So if you wanna go, let me go along
I never walked that road alone
I heard it was hard
I heard it was long
But well come back alive
cause only the strong survive
You walk on a wire, make a game of desire, pitchin pennies down a wishing well.
Youre leading the blind through there high and low times, but baby can you lead yourself?
So calm down, honey, forget about the money. if you need me Ill always be there.
Go ride your high horse alone of course
cause if you need me Ill always care

I Don't Need You

vs.1 I'm not sure about this whole thing.
Why do you keep coming at me?
It just won't work out, me and you.
I can't believe that you are so true!
(chorus)
Please, tell me, oh,
Please tell me
That you're not.
Yeah, and tell me,
Oh, tell me
I'm not hot.
I already know a guy, go away,
I don't need you, yeah, yeah, oh,
I don't need you.
vs.2 You've got a girl with you still.
She keeps you busy at your own will.
Yet, you are not stopping with me.
You keep at it, and you'll see..
(chorus)
vs.3 Now, you better, yeah, agree.
That you are not the love for me.
Thank you for cooperating.
Yeah, you fly away with everything.
(chorus)
(guitar/drum solo)
(chorus)
Bridge: I'm glad we finally
Agreed to work all of this out.
Because now all I wanna do
Is to just scream and shout!
(chorus) x2
Oh, I don't need you!
Yeah, yeah, oh, I don't need you, baby!
Yeow!

You Don't Need Me Now

Holdin' on, safely to fall
Like there's no tomorrow forsaking it all
Bound and determined to share all of our days
Loving and learning our special ways
That i'm holdin' onto and you've been lettin' go
And wherever you've gone to
I'm so far below
You're way over me
I can't even see how
Someday i'll need you the way you don't need me now
Movin' on, heart in a stall
Like there's no tomorrow
No beating at all
Bound and determined to forget all of our days
Reliving and learning our special ways
I'm still holdin' onto
Maybe no lettin' go
And wherever you've gone to
I may never know
The way you're over me
I can't even see how
Someday i'll need you the way you don't need me now
And you don't need me now
Like you needed me then
And i'm wondering how i'll be feeling when
I'm way over you
I can't even see how
Someday i'll need you the way you don't need me now
No way i'll need you the way you don't need me now.

You Don't Need Anyone

(Hogarth)
I saw you there last night
In the latest place
You were taking in the scenery
Hungry for a new face
Seems what I said to you
Didn't change your mind
You could open your eyes, realise
You don't need anyone
Who's always on the phone
You don't need anyone
Who won't leave you alone
You don't need anyone
Who'd want you to cut him a key
You don't need anyone
Out on the streets today
In the clothes you bought
And your glossy picture pages
Full of other people's thoughts
Will you just wander along
Live your life this way
'Till some magazine shows you what to do
You don't need anyone
Who's always on the phone
You don't need anyone
Who won't leave you alone
To fill up the holes in your life
To tell you what you're needing
And make you do what you don't like
You don't need anyone
To show you where to go
And turn you into somebody
You wouldn't even want to know
You don't need anyone
As far as I can see
You don't need anyone
But Me

Don't Need a Pity to Pat

Wont be defeat to be the thing,
To disease me.
I've got to find a peace of mind,
To unthaw this freeze!

Wont be denial that I search,
To please my hunger.
Doing that like the rest...
Is tempting and too easy!

Wont be a hope I had and lost,
To drown in surrounding sorrows.
Wont be shallow whispers,
Others feed to boost their greed.

I'm going to do what it takes,
To get myself together!
If I have to face mistakes I've made,
Then I will for me!

Don't need a pity,
To pat and please my anger!
Don't need approval to wallow in my grief.
Don't need to weep my tears on soggy shoulders.
With the others who welcome me and misery!

Wont be defeat to be the thing,
To disease me.
I've got to find a peace of mind,
To unthaw from this freeze!

Wont be denial that I search,
To please my hunger.
Doing that like the rest...
Is tempting and too easy!

I'm going to do what it takes
To heal from these allergies!
So many cough up nothing...
But talk,
And that 'ain't me!
I'm going to do both walking and talk
To feel relieved.
And pity patting me on my back,
Wont do for me!

(We Don't Need This) Fascist Groove Thang

Everybody move to prove the groove)
Have you heard it on the news
About this fascist groove thang
Evil men with racist views
Spreading all across the land
Don't just sit there on your ass
Unlock that funky chaindance
Brothers, sisters shoot your best
We don't need this fascist groove thang
Chorus:
Brothers, sisters, we don't need this fascist groove thang
History will repeat itself
Crisis point we're near the hour
Counterforce will do no good
Hot you ass I feel your power
Hitler proves that funky stuff
Is not for you and me girl
Europe's an unhappy land
They've had their fascist groove thang
Chorus
Democrats are out of power
Across that great wide ocean
Reagan's president elect
Fascist god in motion
Generals tell him what to do
Stop your good time dancing
Train their guns on me and you
Fascist thang advancing
Chorus
Sisters, brothers lend a hand
Increase our population
Grab that groove thang by the throat
And throw it in the ocean
You're real tonight you move my soul
Let's cruise out of the dance war
Come out your house and dance your dance
Shake that fascist groove thang
(Shake it

We Don't Need Another Hero

(t. britten, g. lyle)
Producer: terry britten
Albums: mad max beyond thunderdome soundtrack (85),
Simply the best (91), the collected recordings (94)
Grammy nomination: best pop vocal performance, female (86)
Mtv video nomination: best female video (86)
Out of the ruins
Out from the wreckage
Can't make the same mistake this time
We are the children
The last generation
We are the ones they left behind
And i wonder when we are ever gonna change it
Living under the fear till nothing else remains
We don't need another hero
We don't need to know the way home
All we want is life beyond the thunderdome
Looking for something we can rely on
There's got to be something better out there
Love and compassion, their day is coming
All else are castles built in the air
And i wonder when we are ever gonna change it
Living under the fear till nothing else remains
All the children say
We don't need another hero
We don't need to know the way home
All we want is life beyond the thunderdome
What do we do with our lives
We leave only a mark
Will our story shine like a life
Or end in the dark
Give it all or nothing

Only The Strong Survive (Take 22)

I remember my first love affair
Somehow or another the whole darn thing went wrong
My mamma had some great advice
So I thought I'd put it into words of this song
I can still hear her sayin' it
Boy, Oh, I see you're sittin' out there all alone
Cryin' your eyes out 'cos the woman that you love has gone
Oh, there's gonna be, there's gonna be a whole lot of trouble in your life
Oh, so listen to me get up off your knees 'cos only the strong survive
That's what she said, only the strong survive
Only the strong survive,
Oh you've got to be strong, you'd better hold on
Don't go all around with your head hung down
Well I wouldn't let that little girl
No, I wouldn't let her know that she made me feel like a clown
There's a whole lot a girls lookin' for a good man like you
Oh but you'll never meet 'em if you give up now and say that your life is through
Yes she said: Only the strong survive, only the strong survive,
You've got to be a man, you've got to take a stand
Only the strong survive, only the strong survive,
Oh, you've got to be strong, you'd better hold on
'Cos only the strong survive
Only the strong survive, only the strong survive,
Well, you've got to be a man, you've got to take a stand
Only the strong survive, only the strong survive

Greasy Fingers You Don't Need 'Em

Would you give up your midnight snack,
Knowing you should not do that?

Oh oh.
Oh. Oh. Oh...
Ooo.

Would you give bad habits back,
If it widened you with fat?

Oh oh.
Oh. Oh. Oh...
Ooo.

Would you minimize your woes,
If you chose not to buy new clothes?

Oh oh.
Oh. Oh. Oh...
Ooo.

Would you get down on the floor,
Exercising even more?

Oh oh.
Oh. Oh. Oh...
Ooo.

If you really want to feel real good,
You've gotta work your butt...
Off!
No diets you can take,
Will erase those pounds you make.
To leave,
You...
Happier each day.
And determining to stay,
That way.

Greasy fingers you don't need 'em!

Would you give up your midnight snack,
Knowing you should not do that?

Oh oh.
Oh. Oh. Oh...
Ooo.

Would you give bad habits back,
If it widened you with fat?

Oh oh.
Oh. Oh. Oh...
Ooo.

If you really want to feel real good,
You've gotta work your butt...
Off!
No diets you can take,
Will erase those pounds you make.
To leave,
You...
Happier each day.
And determining to stay,
That way.

Greasy fingers you don't need 'em!
One day you'll lick,
And pay.

Oh oh.
Oh. Oh. Oh...
Ooo.

Would you give up your midnight snack,
Knowing you should not do that?
Would you give bad habits back,
If it widened you with fat?

Oh oh.
Oh. Oh. Oh...
Ooo.

Only The Strong Survive

When the pressures on and youre all alone
Take a little ride into the danger zone
When the moon is up and the skies are clear
Just show me a sign and well be outa here
Take me up on a wing and a prayer
If you need a friend you know Ill be there
Hound dogs howlin all through the night
Eight miles high and Im doin alright
Better move over cause youre goin too slow
I feel the need for freedom now its time to go
Its a fine line between pleasure and pain
Let your conscience be your guide til we meet again
Your time has come - you can stand or you can run
But dont keep it all inside
Cause you gotta understand that there aint no second chance
No-one gets outa here alive - only the strong survive
Tearin it up goin down the track
Gonna fly so high, I might never come back
If things get tough you can count me in
Cause if you play the game you gotta play to win
Take me up where only angels can fly
If you need a helpin hand I wont pass you by
Your time has come - you can stand or you can run
But dont keep it all inside
Cause you gotta understand that there aint no second chance
No-one gets outa here alive - only the strong survive
Solo
Take me up on a wing and a prayer
If you need someone you know Ill be there
Your time has come - you can stand or you can run
But dont keep it all inside
Cause you gotta understand that there aint no second chance
No-one gets outa here alive
Only the strong survive
Only the strong survive
Well Im doin what I can - you gotta understand
Only the strong survive

Just Don't Need This

Album: Angels With Dirty Faces (2002)
Look across the room
I see some guy
Steaming over me
He's smirking sleazy
Probably be older than daddy
Since you smiled
My expression has changed
Come any closer
Things will be constrained
I walk pass looking good
Doesn't give you the right
To put that hand where you think that you should
Not this girl, not this world
Just step off, had enough
You're no good, I'm no fool
I just don't need this
Not this girl, not this world
Just step off, had enough
You're no good, I'm no fool
I just don't need this
I don't want any man to tell me what to do
Anyone to say to me my feelings are not true
For your information
I maintain my station
Feel so incredible
Don't need no man to tell me where yo go
Cos this is all you know
Not this girl, not this world
Just step off, had enough
You're no good, I'm no fool
I just don't need this
Not this girl, not this world
Just step off, had enough
You're no good, I'm no fool
I just don't need this
I'll go wherever I know that you won't go
I don't have to tango with your ego
And it's just because I said so
They way I'm feeling now is mental
The problem first starts in your dentail
I can't believe they let you in 'dis place
But have they seen the look on your face
Not this girl, not this world
Just step off, had enough
You're no good, I'm no fool
I just don't need this
Not this girl, not this world
Just step off, had enough
You're no good, I'm no fool
I just don't need this
Not this girl, not this world
Just step off, had enough
You're no good, I'm no fool
I just don't need this
Not this girl, not this world
Just step off, had enough
You're no good, I'm no fool
I just don't need this

I Don't Need To Whisper

I don't need to whisper to my God
I don't need to whisper to my God
I don't need to whisper to my God
He is here besides me
And he is listening to what I have to say
Please let me win a little peace
Let me get out of this depression
Let me live again
Let me be myself again
It hurts me when I am not heard by others
I realize now that I can't always be the centre of attraction
Because
Others need to talk also
I shouldn't do all the talking
But I do
Even though
I bored them all with my talking
I am not perfect
You have to understand that God
There are things I need to change
I don't need any more distraction in my life
I don't need any more violence in my life
God do it for me now
Give me a good night rest
My mind is like a computer
Garbage out
Good thoughts in
There is plenty of misery in my life that you need to get rid of for me
I have to recognize the signs
I have to tell myself
I am angry
Give me peace of mind
Yes I carry the heaviest burdens on my shoulders
Somewhere I know love is waiting for me
Because I am
Holding back the tears
Imagine me being free from depression
What's going on inside my head?
I am calling for help
The sky is crying
God don't tear my clothes
God all it takes is a leap of faith
God take me to the river
I only have eyes for you God
God I am running out of lies to tell
God sugar spilled on the floor
What a mess it made
God hold me with your hand
God I need to use my imagination
God take it to the limit
I rather go blind
And not see the bad things I did
Because I am so ashamed of it God
How deep is the ocean God?
I'll be seeing you in my dreams
God in the morning the time seems to fly
It does me good
A good drink of water is all I need God
I have nobody else with me but you God
God you see my soul shining through
God I have to praise you like I should
God my friends stole the sun from my heart
God right here right now I am waiting for a miracle to come
God I need you so
My life would not be complete without you God
Oh God I need you so
That I could take my worries out of my mind
And feel free and at peace

The strong survive lie

Only the strong survive.
We all know, physically this is a lie, for all men shrivel and die.
The only strength that never dies is the strength most men are proud to hide.
The strength I speak of is the only strength that outlasts time.
This is the mind, the spirit, and the soul for survival in the kingdom of man divine.
For therein lies the strength that outlasts time.
