When You Want Something You Can't Have

I can still remember all the pain that I felt, I can't believe that back then the thought of you, or sound of your voice could make me melt

I can still remember all the pain that you caused and how in the end my heart was the one shattered in pieces on the floor, but what I can't believe is that after all that I just wanted you more

It was like I was the stupid moth to your flame, and in the end I got burned and have only myself to blame, I knew I couldn't have you but that didn't stop me from wanting you, I guess I hoped maybe deep down inside you wanted me too

I knew from the start liking you was pointless, but that didn't stop me and in the end I was the one cleaning up my big mess

To make matters worse you knew how I felt all along, I pegged you for a kind, sweet guy but in the end I guess I was wrong

Back then it felt like the worse kind of pain and it felt like i couldn't go on, but looking back on it now, I realized it made me smarter and it made me strong

So in the end even though I was the that was one hurting oh so bad, I must admit as I look back on it I'm kind of glad, because you taught me a valuable lesson in what happens when you want something you can't have

You want answers. Take doubts

You want answers.
There are no answers.
You want some questions.
There are no questions now.
You want something,
There is nothing.
You want this.
There is that.
This and that, they do not
Always come together
And wanting this
You only get that.
See? See.
You want to live in peace
No there is no peace
War has always been with us
You know that, not this.
Oh yes, you want certainties.
You just want to be sure
What is in my hand
Tell me, and I will prove
You wrong, always, I want
To prove you wrong
About certainties, there is
Nothing certain. They just come
When they like coming
And they tell you
You dream, we give
What is best, it may not be what
You are dreaming, or we punish you
By giving what you want
You prayed so earnestly
Oh! These lords these gods
This fate this destiny
They always wait for you
Always hazy, and taken as
X, y, and z
You, it is you that assigns the values
And you can be wrong and even
Still be puzzled.

There is nothing certain.
So?
Well, take the doubts
They are the only things certain
Because they are real.
We live with them everyday.
They are mothers and fathers
And yes, they are gods.

What I Want Is A Starfish

What I want is a starfish
that can pry open the mouth of a word
not for the pearl but the tongue that said it.
What I want is an irrelevancy of slurred minerals,
a negligence of light, a torn candy-wrapper,
a whistle without chrome peas,
but what I want is a footprint that isn't my own
on a desolate beach out of the grasp
of the raking tide that sweeps
the lifeboats up with the garbage. What I want is free,
and that's why no one ever gets it,
when the world is placed in their open hands,
and not seeing their own reflection
or the rag of their wounded shadow
wearing their face like the sky they've always known,
deluded by the cheiromancy of their own entangled lifelines
cries out in their denuded emptiness
that nothing is for free. What I want
is not knowing what I want
on certain lost islands chipped off
massive continental certainties,
these dark bays where the closest thing to a sail
the wind has ever seen
is the stray oar of a feather
from the passing trireme of a bird
with nocturnal, naval engagements elsewhere.
And there's no art to knowing what you want,
you just know it, without reason or forethought,
there's a new bouquet in the vase of your heart,
and the shadows you poured into
the goblet of a burnt bone and drank from
to reveal the watcher at the gates
of the darkness within the darkness,
the taste of abused eclipses on your tongue,
opens the black eyelids of the wine
for you to see the beauty of the ghost in the fire
that's beckoning you to a new death.
So you must be able to live beyond death
to live with what you want,
you must be able to live in the interim
between the anvil and the hammer
shaping the sword
you will either pull from the stone in a myth
of unverifiable wizards and kings,
or fall upon like a defeated republic
to efface the shame of not being equal to what you want,
tearing your face off the stage
like the playbill of a one night stand.
And it's us who make the crystal pillars of the queens,
the rootless lighthouses that can move in any direction,
more important than the pawns
who can only jump from flower to flower like bees,
the vassals and squires of honey
rubbing their legs like cutlery,
so when we sit down to a game with fate
it really means fate, and checkmate, checkmate.
So when I scan the star crossings
for astronomical collisions overturned
along the soft shoulders of an accidental journey,
I'm alert to any movement
in the blinding doe-glare of my highbeams
and I slow down below the pitch
of shrieking brakes, not to kill what I want
accelerating like a comet to it, not
to exterminate the species of my wanting
in a analeptic fireball that drove right through it.
There's an art to knowing the happiest marriage
between the velocity and the direction of the arrow
whistling toward the target, and what speed
the target likes to receive the arrow at, and remembering
not all targets are in front of us.
If you want something badly enough
you must be able to coil your approaches
around the atmospheric doorway of your entrance
in a descending stairwell
toward the object of your desire, a hawk
wheeling down toward the bough of a specific tree,
landing like a snowflake on a furnace
or a kiss of ash on the bannister of a drunk fire-station.

You've Got Me (Right Where You Want Me)

(Right Where You Want Me)
Darling could I just have one moment with you
We're here all alone just us two
Let me try to tell you in a few little words
How my heart feels about you
If there were no rainbow I'd paint one for you
And I'd teach the robin a new song or two
Then I'd fight forever
And hand it to you
Oh I wish there was more could do
You've got me right where you want me
It's true I'm right in the palm of your hand
You've got me right where you want me to be
And I want to be right where I am
You've got me right where you want me to be
And I want be right where I am

How Deep Do You Want It?

How deep do you want it?
You want it cloaked or flaunted?
Would you like it raw and bare?
Or perhaps a little sweet...
Discreet without flair?
Procrastinated teases,
Would that please your fantasies?
Breathy telephone calls delivered...
With heightened obscenities?
Would this arouse a need,
Or a possibility?
Would that get you moist?
Hot and bothered...
Is that your choice?
How deep do you want it?
You want something slow and thrusting?
You want something 'nasty' done to you?
You want something throbbing...
Hot to make you sweat!
How deep do you want it?
I'm not saying I can do it!
But at least I will know...
Where on your wish list this will go!

Girl you want (Lyrics)

She sings from somewhere you can't see,
She sits in the top of the greenest tree.
She sends an aroma of undefined love,
It drips on down in a mist from above.

She's just a girl,
Just a girl,
The girl you want.

She's a girl,
Just a girl,
The girl you want.

You hear her calling everywhere you turn,
You know you're headed for the pleasure burn.
But the words get stuck on the tip of your tongue,
She's the real thing, but you knew it all along.

She's just a girl,
Just a girl,
The girl you want.

She's just a girl,
Just a girl,
The girl you want.

Look at youw with your mouth watering,
Look at you with your mind reeling.
Why don't you admit it's all over,
She's just the girl you want.

She's a girl,
Just a girl,
The girl you want.

She's a girl,
Just a girl,
The girl you want.

She sings from somewhere you can't see,
She sits in the top of the greenest tree.
She sends an aroma of undefined lust,
It drips on down in a mist from above.

She's just a girl,
Just a girl,
The girl you want.

She's a girl,
Just a girl,
The girl you want.

The Way You Want Me To

Won't throw no shame on you
Don't wanna put you through
Those lives you've lived before
Coz I can give you more
Baby take my hand
And try to understand
That I'll be here for you
Just the way you want me to

Girl like you're wastin all your time
You're going outta your mind
Well all the tears you been cryin
And I don't want the things he's putting you through
The cheatin only can prove
You never know what to do
Yeah

Just tell me what you feel inside
Stop thinking about foolish pride
Coz I could see me in your eyes
The way that you've been holding tight
It's time to begin to feel
The kind of love that's really real
Yeah
Girl let me tell you the deal

Won't throw no shame on you
Don't wanna put you through
Those lives you've lived before
Coz I can give you more
Baby take my hand
And try to understand
That I'll be here for you
Just the way you want me to

It's time for you to decide
What you want from your life
Don't want to compromise
Coz I can give you everything that you need
Open your eyes and you'll see
That I can set you free baby
You come to me with a broken heart
You'll feel the love from the very start
It's time for you to part
From a man that leaves you in the dark
It's time to find a man to break you from the trance
Now baby here is your chance

Won't throw no shame on you
Don't wanna put you through
Those lives you've lived before
Coz I can give you more
Baby take my hand
And try to understand
That I'll be here for you
Just the way you want me to

Won't throw no shame on you
Don't wanna put you through
Those lives you've lived before
Coz I can give you more
Baby take my hand
And try to understand
That I'll be here for you
Just the way you want me to

I know just what you're going through
You need love that'll always be true
Look at my eyes
Girl I'll give it to you
The way you want me to

Won't throw no shame on you
Don't wanna put you through
Those lives you've lived before
Coz I can give you more
Baby take my hand
And try to understand
That I'll be here for you
Just the way you want me to

Won't throw no shame on you
Don't wanna put you through
Those lives you've lived before
Coz I can give you more
Baby take my hand
And try to understand
That I'll be here for you
Just the way you want me to

Won't throw no shame on you
Don't wanna put you through
Those lives you've lived before
Coz I can give you more
Baby take my hand
And try to understand
That I'll be here for you
Just the way you want me to

The way you want me to
The way you want me to

Hard Enough Getting Over You

For the first time, in such a long time
Ive been feelin theres some reason
To hold on through the night
And for the first time since
You broke this heart of mine
I find myself believin
Its really gonna be alright
Now youre askin me to let
You walk back into my life
Something I cant bring myself to do
Chorus:
cause its been hard enough gettin over you
You kept me holdin on till the end
Oh its been hard enough getting over you
I dont think that I could say goodbye again
I could trust you, but its out of my hands
I once believed your promises
Believed in every word you said
I still love you but my heart wont take the chance
That all the pain Ive left behind me
Might be waiting for me up ahead
Just remember it was you
Who walked right out of my life
No you dont know what Ive been through
Chorus
I made a promise to myself
And this one Im not gonna break
Ive made it without you
And Im not about to
Turn around and make the same mistake
Chorus
cause its been hard enough gettin over you
You kept me holdin on till the end
Oh, its been hard enough gettin over you
I dont think that I could say goodbye
I dont think I could say goodbye
I know that I cant say goodbye again

I Think You Dropped Something

Is it possible to get even more,
Flagrantly fragmented?
Is it?

Is it not clear enough or obvious,
An inconsistency is so prevalent...
Those once hooked and addicted to drugs,
Are now getting their minds much higher...
On what is going on around them,
They are no longer seeking for escapes...
To mentally drift away.

Not today!
They can experience total disbelief,
Without the aid of mental stimulants...
Just by walking along any street,
Urban or suburban...
To see people who are further out of their minds,
Than any narcotic they have 'ever' tripped on.

'Excuse me,
But I think you dropped something.
It looks like a bag of weed.'

~Trust me.
I didn't accidently dropp it.
If you want it,
There it is.~

I can tell youve been watching me, girl, Ive been watching you too.
I got the feeling you want my love, I must admit, I want your love too.
Call it what you want, baby, girl, I call it love.
Call it what you want, darling, I still call it love.

You can call it this, you can call it that, you can call it anything, girl.
Call it.... (repeat chorus & fade)

If That's What You Want

I don't like to think I'm predictable
When I'm loved by somebody I feel like a man
You know it's kind of hard to stop a waterfall
When it just keeps coming 'cause it can
And you've got to let go when your heart is on fire
And it's hard to say no
You can do anything now to me
Chorus 1
If that's what you want, baby I'll get it
If that's what you do, let's do it
If that's what you need, baby just take it
Now you're in a position to light my ignition
If that is what you want
I've been blown away by a hurricane
But hey I'm still standing and I come back for more
Hit me with your love, I can take the pain
'Cause you're so demanding, lay me down on the floor
And you've got to let go when your heart is on fire
And it's hard to say no, yeah
But you can do anything now to me
Chorus 2
If that's what you want, baby I'll get it
If that's what you do, let's do it
If that's what you need, baby oh baby just take it
Now you're in a position to soothe my condition
If that is what you want
Never stopped learning from the day that I was born
Now let me tell you you taught me where I was going wrong
No, I can't do without it
I'm gonna do something about it
Repeat chorus 1

Do You Know What You Want

Someone who treats you right
Stay with you day and night
I can tell that's what you need
I know just what to do
I'll take good care of you
Baby you can get that from me

I can tell she's not treating you right
Every time you look at me
So which one will you choose
You look so confused
Tell me the truth
Do you know what you want

Do you know what you want
Do you know what you want
Love's so hard to find
So make up your mind
Do you know what you want

Oh baby can't you see
One minute you're with me
Next one you are all over her
She talks behind your back
You know I'll stay on track
Something she wouldn't for sure

How can I help you to make up your mind
Boy you're running out of time
So which one will you choose
You look so confused
Tell me the truth
Do you know what you want

Do you know what you want
Do you know what you want
Love's so hard to find
So make up your mind
Do you know what you want

[BRIDGE]
Please call me and say
I am the one
You need in your life
The game that you play
Ain't no fun
Please answer me now
Gotta know what you want

I can tell she's not treating you right
Every time you look at me
So which one will you choose
You look so confused
Tell me the truth
Do you know what you want

How can I help you to make up your mind
Boy you're running out of time
So which one will you choose
You look so confused
Tell me the truth
Do you know what you want

Do you know what you want
Do you know what you want
Love's so hard to find
So make up your mind
Do you know what you want

Just Say No

Attention party people its a APB
that is an all points bulleton from Young MC
now rather your a senior citizen or just a tike
just grab a seat and pay attention as i rock the mic
I wrote a couple of Rhymes and call them just say no
dedicated to the people who are on the go
and when can help you out when you are on the brink
and when you listen this jam can make you think
If you were ever in a situation
with out enough time for comtimplation
all of your friends go in the same way
you feel kind of traped, you dont know what to say
Just say no
'cause better safe then sorry
this is for real, this aint no game or folly
its your life and you only got one
so you better do it right or it will soon be done
You want to be popular, you want to be cool
you want to be the one that every body likes at school
you want to be every thing just for every one else
but you better thing of what you want to be for your self
Every day people livin in the same old mess
hard to be original and not be like the rest
you got to go for what you know, you cant afford to guess
and heaven knows what would happen if you did say yes
so say NO
just say NO
You hear me say NO...no...no...no
Just say NO
kids OD and cause a family greef
over the marajana plant and the coco leaf
over a bunch of pills to try to get their thrills
over a drug you shoot becuase you think it's cute
Over something you smoke, man it aint no joke
over something you drink oh boy why dont you think
over something you snort like you were playing a sport
one day you'll go to far and you'll come up short
Some people out there dont seem to get my point
tellin other crack kills while their smoking a joint
well the point of this song is to tell you the facts
some people die from smoking the tree like they die from crack
Not a drug im particular but drugs in general
their not good for you like a vitamin or a mineral
they come in liquid, leaf, powder, pills, and rocks
to put you six feet under on your back in a box
so say NO
just say NO
did you hear me say NO...no...no...no
just say NO

If You Want To Know What I Feel

i just ate a
ripe banana
the only thing
for my dinner
since she left
me for another
(woman) ...not
hard to explain
eh. But if you
want to know
what i really feel
then try eating
the leftover
peel.

Just like you want to

If you stay away from work
just like you want to,
there is a price to pay for it
since no man lives without duty.

If you act in life
just like you want to
and do not consider others,
there is a price to pay for it
since no man lives alone.

If you say just
what you want to
and do not consider others,
there is a price to pay for it
and nobody will be your friend.

Just tell Me What You Want

What are you going to do for love when you've got everything?
You really do make me feel like a natural woman when i am with you;
For, that's the way love goes with you in my arms.
Just tell me what you want and i will do it for you,
So wake up and live now up to this love that we share;
Like the mystic of tomorrow when, you are all that i do have in my arms.
I can see it in your eyes when i am with you,
And i do have the strong feelings of love for you;
So don't worry and do not complicate your mind always,
For i am with you and i will always satisfy you.
I want to taste the apples of your love and,
Just tell me what you want on this love;
For, this love of mine is opened to you alone.

You Could Do It If You Want To

Iggy: you’re lucky that not many people find or read my stuff,
Because I believe you don’t seem to be trying hard enough,
You have to cause some political controversy and soon,
Shake those Liberal diehards and do it by the next full moon.

We need binding referendums and recall of politicians,
You have lots of them around you in various positions,
Because this radical agenda would show you have some guts,
This is what Canadians really need, no ifs ands or buts.

You are part of the Liberal bureaucracy putting on an act,
We turn on our TVs and this is what we see and that’s a fact,
Say something, do something new to bring about political change,
Those old Liberal sentiments were always easy to arrange.
