lyrics

I can't believe the mess I'm in
Hope I don't end as I begin
I'm walking on, looking back
Speaking a code you cannot crack

Oh, what the hell, I'm clear as a bell
I'm probably screaming it as well
I've never been good, anyway
At not saying things I shouldn't say

The way it is, can't complain
I would love to drive you insane
But I'm not on your mind, it's in my head
And it's me who's insane instead

I'll count to three, I'll count to ten
Then I'm never talking again
Silence, please, won't you take away
These stupid words that ruined my day

The way it is, can't complain
I would love to drive you insane
But I'm not on your mind, it's in my head
And it's me who's insane instead

I'll be wishing on a random star tonight
You'll be sleeping under different skies tonight
And I'll pick you up when you don't fall
And I'll come running when you don't call

The way it is, I can't complain
I would love to drive you insane
But I'm not on your mind, it's in my head
And it's me who's insane instead

I can't believe the mess I'm in
Hope I don't end as I begin

Mieka Pauley Brooklyn, New York

Mieka Pauley possesses a voice that flows like good whiskey and a frankness that makes Alanis Morissette look shy. She conjures up a sonic immediacy with the same masterful command as Ani DiFranco with driving, yearning melodies that stand alongside the work of Michelle Shocked, Neko Case and Emmylou Harris. ... more
