Track Name: Sweetest Thing
Sweetest Thing
Music & Lyrics by Rachel Farris ©2012

I could be wealthy enough for houses all around
I could be funny, book a full house in every town
I could be slamming, my body in the greatest shape
I could be tanning out by the ocean on the cape,
On the cape

It’s still the sweetest thing to fall in love
And no one knows what you’ve been dreaming of
It’s hard to walk around and keep your cool
The natural thing is grinning like a fool
It’s still the sweetest thing
It’s still the sweetest thing
It’s still the sweetest thing

I could be honored for an invention like the car
I could be brilliant, have top degrees and pass the bar
I could be famous for all the hit songs of my time
I could be cherished and have my face on every dime, Every dime

I could have everything
I could have everything
But it’s not the same
I still want love
I still want you
Track Name: IMA Lady
IMA Lady
Music & Lyrics by Rachel Farris ©2012

Excuse me, can I help you with that jaw
The looks of you would make one think I’m in my bra
I’d like to shop in anonymity for just one day
I’m not your next big meal, your game, your prey
Was that your thought when you first took on this job
You’d bum around on the clock dressed like a slob
And look for chicks in the mall in need of shoes
I’m Cinderella; they fit, but boy you lose

Pardon me, did you notice I have a face
Did you ever consider giving me some space
Talking three small inches from my mouth
This conversation has immediately gone south
I have a chest, juicy rear, and a small waist
But do you think you can so quickly get a taste
This property is reserved for a real good man
He’ll have to know how to love and he’ll have a plan

IMA Lady, IMA lady
So respect me, so respect me
Defy gravity, defy gravity with your jaw, aww aww
IMA Lady, IMA lady
So tread carefully, tread carefully
When you’re around me
Don’t you hound me like a dog, raw raw

You might get an eyeful every day, every day
But there’s more to seeing beautiful
Than skin so soft so smooth and silky
Chest so firm yet soft and milky
Waist so slender, cheeks so tender

IMA Lady, IMA lady
So respect me, so respect me
Defy gravity, defy gravity with your jaw, aww aww
IMA Lady, IMA lady
So tread carefully, tread carefully
When you’re around me, when you’re around me
Don’t you crawl, awl, awl
Track Name: Stick Your Tongue in My Mouth
Stick Your Tongue in My Mouth
Music & Lyrics by Rachel Farris ©2012

We’re all at da club and everybody’s drinking
Everybody’s thinking of hooking up
We’re all at da club and everybody’s dreaming
Everybody’s scheming one night of love

I don’t even know you or anything about you
But please stick your tongue in my mouth
I’m giving you my number
Won’t hear from you tomorrow
But please stick your tongue in my mouth

We’re all at da club, this place is full of rappers
They all act like they trappers strutting all their stuff
We’re all in da club just chilling, under forty
And all of us are shorty dipping low for some love

I don’t even know you or anything about you
But please stick your tongue in my mouth
I’m giving you my number
Won’t hear from you tomorrow
But please stick your tongue in my mouth
You might have oral herpes or seven secret babies
But go ahead and stick it in my mouth
You’ve had a lot to drink
You’d never recognize me
But go ahead and stick it in my mouth

How low can you go (so low)
How low can you go (real low)

We’re all on a boat just looking good and smiling
Stuck on Lonely Island soaking up the sun
We’re all on a boat and really tired of waiting
We’re made for food and mating dipping low just for fun

I don’t even know you or anything about you
But please stick your tongue in my mouth
I’m giving you my number, but won’t ever hear from ya
But please stick your tongue in my mouth
You might have oral herpes or seven secret babies
But go ahead and stick it in my mouth
You’ve had a lot to drink
You’d never recognize me
But go ahead and stick it in my mouth

How low can you go (so low)
How low can you go (so low)
How low can you go, low, low
Track Name: Never Mind
Never Mind
Music & Lyrics by Rachel Farris ©2012

I wanted to be your favorite person
Your topic among your closest friends
Wanted to forget past hurts and curse them
Happy my heartache phase could end

Never mind, I will get on over you
Changed my mind, never mind
Take your time
I don’t want to be with you
Never mind I’ll be fine
Never mind I will get on over you
Save your line, never mind
Never mind

I wanted to work through every problem
I wanted to be the biggest deal
I wanted to find your puzzles and solve them
I wanted to reach third base and steal

And you know, and you know it all
Yeah you do
And you know, and you know it all

And you know, and you know it all
Yeah you do
And you know, and you know it all

You were never mine
You were never mine
You were never mine
Track Name: Don't Listen to Me
Don’t Listen to Me
Music & Lyrics by Rachel Farris ©2012

I am your heart
And I’m not looking out for you, no way
I am your heart
And I don’t ever tell the truth to you
Because I get wrapped up in desire
And I’m a sneaker and a liar

Don’t listen to me, I want it all
Don’t listen to me, I’ll make you fall
Don’t listen to me, I will deceive
Don’t listen to me, I am so easy to believe

I am your heart
And I will tell you what to do, oh yes
I am your heart
Follow me for your delight, yeah right
Because I was never wrong before
Release the guard beyond my door

And I will burn you to the core
And make you come right back for more
And I will draw you to my fire
I’ll beg you, hang me by a wire
Track Name: Seventeen
Seventeen
Music & Lyrics by Rachel Farris ©2012

I still like gummy bears and worms
I still don’t like to touch the germs
Still don’t ride my bike over the sewer grill
Try to get things on my terms
Had my share of bangs and perms
Still look for a thing in life to spark a thrill

I still feel sweet deet de de deet
Still feel like seventeen
I try to run and I’m learning to sing
I contemplate why girls are so mean
Still call mom about everything

I still get so emotional
Stuff myself till I’m too full
Still like sitting way up front to raise my hand
Still have so much left to learn
Made mistakes I’d like to burn
It’s all better at the game and hot dog stand

I’m staying this way forever
I don’t want to change
I act young and I like it
I know it’s strange
Track Name: Could I Be Your Angel
Could I Be Your Angel
Music & Lyrics by Rachel Farris ©2012

I forget where I am when I see you again
I can’t look very long, you’re too much to take in
You don’t have to say a single word
I talk for both of us, I know it’s absurd

Could I be your angel tonight
Could I be your angel for life
Could I be your, could I be your angel

I never met anyone I wanted to be like
I couldn’t see in someone a fuller, better life
In just a minute with you the past is gone
I must have been through enough and my switch is on

Just ask me, just utter a sound
Just hold me, and I will stay around
Just ask me

I’m going on the depth of what my heart can sense
I picking up on your eyes and your subtle hints

Could you be my angel tonight
Could you be my angel for life
Could you be my, could you be my,
Could you be my angel tonight
Could you be my angel for life
Could you be my, could you be my angel
Could you be my, could you be my angel
Could you be my, could you be my angel
Track Name: He's so into Her
He’s so into Her
Music & Lyrics by Rachel Farris ©2012

She’s the girl who keeps a wrench by her Tampon
Glove compartment is reserved for what goes wrong
Mine is there to make everything go right
Extra lip gloss to last through the whole night

She’s the girl who follows all the football teams
She knows the terms, the plays, and all the in betweens
I’m the girl in the kitchen making homemade dough
I hear her screaming downstairs like go team go

He’s so into her I see him smile
He’s so into her, he likes her short hair and her style
She’s in cargo pants and a hat that says Bass
I’m in blue jeans that accentuate my ass

She would take a hike for twenty-eight days straight
She wouldn’t care if processed food is all she ate
I can barely live a month with a suitcase
I would need a special soap to wash my face

She adores the Wii and all DSL games
She knows the stats, the best and worst of all the names
I’m outside in the sun with a brand new book
I’m buying things just to go back home and cook

Don’t care much about the levels
And boards you’ve passed
Don’t want to hear about your cars and driving fast
I like to keep my hair long, not short
I couldn’t win you if my case were held in court
Track Name: Need a Change
Need a Change
Music & Lyrics by Rachel Farris ©2012

I’m getting used to being here
But there’s more for me elsewhere
This only happens when I’m isolated
My thoughts are escalated
A firm physique is overrated
Where are all the happy people for me to love

I really need a change, need a change
And I really need to go, need to go
Where I will be taken care of
I will not be afraid of things I’ve been deathly scared of

I’m getting used to being here
But there’s more for me elsewhere
This usually happens when intoxicated
My pulse is aggravated
My heart feels unappreciated
Where are all the shiny people for me to hold

I really need a change, need a change
And I really need to go, need to go
Where I will be taken care of
I will not be afraid of things I’ve been deathly scared of

I am wasting, I’m wasting
Now I’m tasting, I’m tasting
My frustration, frustration
On my way to elevation
Please don’t let me sink too low
This ship has got to go
I can’t take one more blow
Track Name: Empty
Empty
Music & Lyrics by Rachel Farris ©2012

Thank you for the fuel when my tank was empty
Thank you for the praise when I felt un-pretty
Thank you for the lift when my heart was heavy
Thankful that you cared
Had enough in you to share
And you cared to share with me

The road is long
She sings her song
Can she make it one more mile
She loses speed
Knows what she needs
She’ll have to sit here for a while

The shirt is worn
Baggies are torn
Can I wear them one more day
Skin is so pale
Confidence frail
Can I fake it, will I stay

You were naked and you gave your clothes away
You were drained and you mustered all your strength
You were aching and you took my tears away
