Millennium Man
Lyrics

here he come millennium man
here he come gitane in his hand

la la jean-jaques, jean-marc
la la jean-luc, jean-michel

c’est comme un jeu d’échecs
pour trouver le bon mec
un français bien entendue
qui sait toujours what to do
ooh la la

il faut chercher haut et en bas
pour trouver le bon gas
un français bien entendue
qui sait toujours what to do
c’est nul c’est cool ooh la la

ce n’est pas automatique
pour trouver le bon type
un français bien entendue
qui sait toujours what to do
ooh la la

comme ci, ça comme
pour trouver le bon homme
un français bien entendue
qui sait toujours what to do
c’est nul c’est cool ooh la la

Wishing Well

lyrics: Elizabeth Ziff
music: BETTY

Wishing Well
Lyrics

lying with my broken heart
tried to love
but only fell
i imagine life
this simple
drowning in my
wishing well

quiet aching in my head
staring through
distorted views
anything can be
forgotten
i’ll continue
loving you

now here i am
with a dime in my hand
and my dress soaking wet
and a thousand regrets
and only one wish is real

nothing but the best for you baby
nothing but the best – oh i
nothing but the best for you baby
in your life

i wish
nothing but the
best for you baby
in your life

Heartache

Heartache
Lyrics

i hurried to the pharmacy it wasn’t too far. i was suffering so i guess i didn’t mind when my total came out to $108.69.

back home alone in my darkened room i swallowed each pill and licked the spoon.

i looked at your picture with tears in my eyes and remembered last night when you told me goodbye.

before i drifted off to sweet sweet sleep i read the label on the last bottle at my feet. i kicked off the covers and thought what have i done. i picked up the phone and dialed 911.

hello. hello. hello. hello.
hello i screamed there’s been a mistake.

i must have said heartburn
but i meant

HEARTACHE
