Shy 02:52
I'm shy I use my outside voice, but I'm shy And sometimes I make friends with boys, but I'm shy I've had some one-night stands, but I'm shy And in public I like holding hands, but I'm shy I'm shy, I'm shy And I can't help but ask myself why I'm so shy, but I'm shy Sometimes I know what to say, but I'm shy Sometimes when I wanna go home, I stay, but I'm shy I tell some jokes very well, but I'm shy I'm so shy, but you'd never tell that I'm shy I'm shy, I'm shy And I can't help but ask myself why I'm so shy, but I'm shy

Maybe 02:23
Maybe you'll wake up someone else tomorrow morning Maybe you'll wake up someone new Full of belief you never had yesterday morning Wanting to do things you don't do Maybe next to someone you don't know Maybe owing money you don't owe Maybe Maybe you'll wake up super smart tomorrow morning Maybe you'll wake up super dumb Wrinkled and sick and deaf and blind tomorrow morning Tiny and fat and sucking your thumb Maybe not in a comfy bed at all Maybe scrunched upright in a bathroom stall Maybe Maybe touching someone you can't touch Maybe having everything you want so much Maybe

Time 03:14
My friend sings to me when it's wake-up time And I sing to him when we make up time How many songs do we sing so desperately Trying hard to mend our friendship He and I don't want to end it Sorry for being strange, sorry I can't change Sorry for being lazy, nasty, stupid, selfish, crazy Wait for time to go by Just now we'll say good-bye But wait for time to go by Sorry

Again 03:23
So say it while you can, say it while you can Believe it while you can, and tell it all again If I could paint you once before you die I'd surely love it better than good-bye 'Cause art lives after death so why can't we Go on and on as far as we can see The heart is just a muscle in a cage A muscle's just a painting on a page And lungs and veins and bones are all the same I've never seen inside but I can name them So say it while you can, say it while you can Believe it while you can, and tell it all again

Carey 02:22
My world is round on the outside And your world is round on the inside And my world has planes and buildings and people And your world has bloodworms and glass I go to parties and concerts And restaurants and bars and the ocean And earn myself money and learn things But you don't go to work and you don't go to class Carey, I can't tell if you like me, I can't tell if you like me Sorry I can't understand you You don't even speak proper English You don't even make any noises at all Besides *gulp* and *splash* and *bubble* Sorry we can't have adventures You probably wouldn't enjoy them You'd probably get very scared and upset And I'd probably get into serious trouble Carey, I can't tell if you like me, I can't tell if you like me

Fan 02:28
I became a fan of you, I bought everything you made And I listened to your songs over and over until I hated them Then I played them on piano and I played them on guitar 'Til I couldn't write any songs of my own anymore And I hear them when I wake up 'cause I heard them in my sleep And I hear them behind everything I listen to no matter what it is And when I sit at the piano, you play through me And I can't even write any songs of my own anymore
7.
Sleep 03:46
I start by taking off my clothes And folding them and putting them in drawers Or in the laundry basket sitting in my closet Then I grab the nightie hanging from a hook beside my bed I slip it over my shoulders, climb inside and fall asleep I do what I please I say whatever I please I fly and kill and kiss whomever I please
8.
Pavilion 03:21
We were up in that pavilion when the rain came Raging down, sweeping under Dusting toes and soaking benches Filling swing seats Pooling at the bottom of the slide We'd left hot dogs, chips and Pepsi In a bag by the pond
