THAT'S THE GIRL

THE EXPAT

Well my boss is always riding me
My girls sleeping round
The things I take for granted are starting to to wear me down
Well I'm dreaming at my desk
burn this place to the ground
Packing up my quiver and gonna leave this shit behind

Gonna quit my job / Quit this life
Quit this shit I never liked
Ain't gonna settle till I get it right
Gonna quit this town / Quit these bills
Quit this stuff I never felt
Give it up before I die

I'm gonna / Take me down.../
Heading off to Costa Rica lose my mind
I got the place / Picked Out.../
Pacific coast Sam-ara is where I'll waste my time

Well the traffic's a fucking nightmare/ The rent is two months lateThe landlord's riding my balls I'm sneaking in past the gate
The line-up's a total shit show / Can't catch a single wave
Sma-shing into each other like we're on the interstate
Gonna quit my job / Quit this life / Quit this shit I never liked
Ain't gonna settle till I get it right
Gonna quit this town / Quit these bills
Quit this stuff I never felt
Give it up before I die

I'm gonna / Take me down...
Heading off to Costa Rica lose my mind
I got the place / Picked Out...
Pacific coast Sam-ara is where I'll waste my time
I'm gonna / Take me down...
Heading off to Costa Rica lose my mind
I got the place / Picked Out...
Pacific coast Sam-ara is where I'll waste my time

Cuz I don't want to wait....too long
Cuz something keeps a telling me I don't be-long
Cuz I gotta roll on, I gotta goal on
I got something that you just can't see

(SOLO AREA)

Cuz I don't want to wait....too long
Cuz something keeps a telling me I don't be-long
Cuz I gotta roll on, I gotta goal on
I got something that you just can't see

Well, winter's bumming me out/ clouds are always gray
Packing up all my shit To head out on my way
Well digging out my passport / sneaking out the gate
Heading to the airport The tension melts away
Well I'm kicked back at the flybar/ People running by
They scramble past each other for a better spot in line
Bitching about the window seat/ whining about the wine
This is exactly why I'm leaving You can keep this kind of life
Gonna quit my job / Quit this life / Quit this shit I never liked
Ain't gonna settle till I get it right
Gonna quit this town / Quit these bills
Quit this stuff I never felt
Give it up before I die

I'm gonna / Take me down...
Heading off to Costa Rica lose my mind
I got the place / Picked Out...
Pacific coast Sam-ara is where I'll waste my time
I'm gonna / Take me down...
Heading off to Costa Rica lose my mind
I got the place / Picked Out...
Pacific coast Sam-ara is where I'll waste my time

Cuz I don't want to wait....too long

ETERNAL OPTIMIST

I've got big fat fresh blank under my arm
I've got the jet black neoprene keeping me warm
I've got that ten mile stare (just a) sweeping the coast
I've got a hot jug of water waiting in the trunk
I've got the baby blue lightning with one hubcap
I've got ten pounds of sand scattered in the back
I've got some old junk in the trunk from years ago
But the piece of shit gets me where i want to go

You can hate me / break me / shake me / put me down
You can trash me / bash me / (man) it won't bum me out

I've got a little shit apartment old 3rd floor
I've got a blue trim surfboard always smack on the door
I've got a crazy ass owner always walk the halls
I've got the bass drum thumping right through the wall
I've got a crappy little fridge always stuffed with beer
I've got the dust so thick it always fills the air
I've got a killer little view of the bank next door
and the chicks walking by as they come and go

You can hate me / break me / shake me / put me down
You can trash me / bash me / (man) it won't bum me out

Well it's a sunny day / Life's ok
Feeling good / Cuz i'm on my way
Feeling just a bit of it / Enjoying every little bit
Sliding to the side / digging every inch of it
The sun is up / High above
Holding on / To that happy song
Loving every part of you / anything you want to do
Open my eyes and breath in this whole world!

I've got little job singing if you call that work
I've got a bunch of guitars, whatever that shits worth
I've got a crappy twenty five inch tube TV
That i don't really watch, so that's OK with me
I've got a good batch people that i call my friends
I've got a whole lot of love i hope will never end
I've got a sweet little girlfriend that we live in sin
I've got a hand me down world that i'm breathing in

You can hate me / break me / shake me / put me down
You can trash me / bash me / (man) it won't bum me out

Well it's a sunny day / Life's ok
Feeling good / Cuz i'm on my way
Feeling just a bit of it / Enjoying every little bit
Sliding to the side / digging every inch of it
The sun is up / High above
Holding on / To that happy song
Loving every part of you / anything you want to do
Open my eyes and breath in this whole world!

SMILE LIKE THAT

I remember clearly as the sun rise
Waz overhead n glassy, for a week or two
Eezed on up to the bar / Huevos rancheros
A cold beer and There you were

I never saw a smile like that
No never saw eyes stars don't shine like that
No no no no no no......hips don't sway like that
I will always love u

How'm I ever gonna go on with out u
And I don't even know ur name
How'm I ever gonna go on with out u girl
And I don't even know ur name

I will always regret the fact that I don't even know ur name
It might as well've been hallelujah

Caz I have never been the same since that day
Been all around this world Lookin for ya

Been 10 long years since now / To my growing shameConvinced myself an illusion u were / A mermaid just the same

LET THAT LOVE OUT

I gotta hot bed / brick red / Sign on my forehead
Spend a little time making sure i gotta clean head
Tough luck / Dumb struck / My wallet got a little shrunk
Spread around the love make the world just a little drunk
(Because) I feel so high...But not high enough to let my love nosedive
(Because) I feel just right
Because i'm spending all my time trying to spread the good vibes

Ya gotta Stop...Man, let that love out
Everybody show the world what we're all about
Show them how our love will lead the way (yeah, yeah)

Ya gotta Stop, Man, let that love out
Everybody show the world what we're all about
Show them how our love will lead the way (yeah, yeah)

I got a shit car / Go far / Cheaper than my guitar
Don't need to blow a million dollars at the free bar
Cool down / Roll 'round / Serving up the big sound
Set it up again / Spread the loving all around

(Because) I lose my mind...
From all the a-holes who doesn't spend a little time
Making this life..
Just a little bit better for you and I.

Ya gotta Stop...Man, let that love out
Everybody show the world what we're all about
Show them how our love will lead the way (yeah, yeah)

Ya gotta Stop, Man, let that love out
Everybody show the world what we're all about
Show them how our love will lead the way (yeah, yeah)

(Rock Hole)

(Because) I feel so high...
But not high enough to let my love nosedive
(Because) I feel just right
Because i'm spending all my time trying to spread the good vibes

Ya gotta Stop...Man, let that love out
Everybody show the world what we're all about
Show them how our love will lead the way (yeah, yeah)
Ya gotta Stop, Man, let that love out
Everybody show the world what we're all about
Show them how our love will lead the way (yeah, yeah)
Let us lead the way...

TEAR YOUR DRESS

Well we had a good run
It was a short one
But at least you know we both had fun
Then you went out and you left me

I wish you nothing but the worst now
And I don't know how
You've got my mind turned around
But I guess I'll just let things be

I hope you tear your dress
I hope your hair's a mess
I hope you fall and scrape your knee
And I hope that you miss me

I hope you stub your toe
I hope your tires blow
I hope it hurts you when you pee
And I hope that you miss me

Well we had a good run
It was a short one
But at least you know we both had fun
Then you went out and you left me

I wish you nothing but the worst now
And I don't know how
You've got my mind turned around
But I guess I'll just let things be

I hope your coffee's cold
I hope that you feel old
I hope that your dog gets some fleas
And I hope that you miss me

I hope you woke up late
I hope you over ate
I hope that your foot falls asleep
And I hope that you miss me

I hope you tear your dress
I hope your hair's a mess
I hope you fall and scrape your knee
And I hope that you miss me

I COULD DIE NOW

Talkin' bout the floozies / Out back in the jacuzi
Grabbing some coronas / To drink out in the hot tub
The ladies got their tops off / The party's going non stop
Everyone's jokin' n' smokin' n taking it all in

And i know, and i know, and i know I've got her
And i know, and i know or maybe she's got me...

Drinking before the big show / Heading out to Bimbo's
Dancing with some cutie / Slow dancing to the fast tunes
Waking up at her pad / My pants are on backwards
Hazy n' crazy n' everything i ever needed

And i know, and i know, and i know I've got her
And i know, and i know or maybe she's got me...

I could die now, I could die now, that's all right by me
Cuz i lived my life in just one night, at least that's the way it seems
I could die now, I could die now, that's all right by me
Cuz i lived my life in just one night, at least that's the way it seems

Heading on a beer run / Chilling in the hot sun
Picking up some cold brews / Should get the job done
Burning out the back seat / Floating on some good weed
Floating like an innertube / Drifting down a fat creek
Feeling like a freight train / Flying on an airplane
Bound for a getaway / Bound for a warm place
Searching for that feeling / Riding on the ceiling
Riding on a big wave / Ter-rif-ied of leaving

I could die now, I could die now, that's all right by me
Cuz i lived my life in just one night, at least that's the way it seems
I could die now, I could die now, that's all right by me
Cuz i lived my life in just one night, at least that's the way it seems

LA, LA, LA, LA....LA, LA, LA, LA....

GET IT UP

Well, i shot me angel with a gift for gab
She was a hot little momma with a plastic bag
and / I got a little feeling that I'm gonna be
needing to spend a little time with her

Well, i shored up the walls of that great big heart
It took a little while but i finally learned that part
but / Something inside just told me its right
and to stop - dicking round

I Said GET it up, LET it up, i said SET it up
I Said GET it up, LET it up, i said SET it up
(You got) to find all those pieces that fill up the spaces
To make you life a better thing (1)

Well, i traded in my coat for an old surfboard
Ditched Chicago / in my beat up Ford
And i headed out west cuz i thought it was best
To keep - from losing my mind

Well, i made it to the coast with a trunk full of crap
Beat up six string / clothes on my back
And a brand new attitude, zip code and latitude
making out a fresh new start

I Said GET it up, LET it up, i said SET it up
I Said GET it up, LET it up, i said SET it up
(You got) to find all those pieces that fill up the spaces
To make you life a better thing (2)

Let that sun shine on your face!
Let it remind you of the places you've been to
Let that warmth, swallow you whole
As you Disappear through the air
Like a cloud on a chair
Like a big wave slapping on a pier

I Said GET it up, LET it up, i said SET it up
I Said GET it up, LET it up, i said SET it up
(You got) to find all those pieces that fill up the spaces
To make you life a better thing

(SOLO AREA)

So i bit the bullet, took that great big plunge
Headed down south down highway 1
Jumped of the back with a great big smack
And I landed on a brand new plan

checked out the waves as i packed the car
Headed back home to my favorite bar
Called up my lady / let her I'm crazy
and please, please come back home

I Said GET it up, LET it up, i said SET it up
I Said GET it up, LET it up, i said SET it up
(You got) to find all those pieces that fill up the spaces
To make you life a better thing (4)

MORNING GLOW

I woke up feeling good this morning
I woke up, man and without warning
I woke up and the darkness fade away

I can't believe my luck is changing
I can't believe life's rearranging
I can't believe the mood I'm in today

I'm feeling good / I'm feeling great
I think I'm over it
I'm feeling like I never felt before
I'm feeling swell / I'm feeling rad
I washed away the bad
I'm feeling like a walk down to the shore

There's something about the sunlight streaming
There's something in my eyes are gleaming
There's something telling me that life's OK

I ditched my car and walk the long way
I ditched that shitty feeling today
I ditched my shoes and felt the earth at play

I'm feeling good / I'm feeling great
I think I'm over it
I'm feeling like I never felt before
I'm feeling swell / I'm feeling rad
I washed away the bad
I'm feeling like a walk down to the shore

I Can, I Can - feel it coming on (yeah)
I Can, I Can - Feel it envelop me (yeah)
I Can, I Can - Feel again (all right yeah!)

I'm feeling Life again, I'm feeling High again
I'm feeling everything, I feel it all... yeah, yeah (2)

SOLO

La-da-da-Da-da-da-da-da La-da-da-Da-da-da-da-da
I'm feeling fine / I'm feeling new
I think I'll get a brew
I'm feeling like the suns is warming me
I'm feeling love / I'm feeling amped
I feel I got unclamped
I'm feeling like someone just set me free
I'm feeling Life again, I'm feeling High again
I'm feeling everything, I feel it all... yeah, yeah (4)

TAKE WHAT YOU NEED

She never gets lonely
She tells me that she never gets sad, oh no
But I don't believe her
She's always lying to me like that

You take what you need sometimes
And you save the rest for another life
You take what you need sometimes
And you save the rest for another life

She likes beer and cigarettes
and that's alright by me
We get drunk on Sunday afternoon
Three hours later as the sun sags in the sky
We check out each others' new tattoos

You take what you need sometimes
And you save the rest for another life
You take what you need sometimes
And you save the rest for another life

MAHITTABLE THE HORRIBLE

Ma-hittable the horrible, she strikes yet once again
You can take her out to dinner and act like your best friend
But - when the when the food arrives and everyone digs in
Mahittable the horrible, she gets that evil grin

And she throws and she throws....
and the food, flies everywhere
You'd better duck, and hope for luck. Mahittable is here!


Ma - hittable the horrible she snaps just like a twig
You can have the greatest time until she flips her lid
Cuz - when the party starts and and the room it starts to spin
Mahittable the horrible, is the worst she's ever been

And she throws and she throws....
and she throws a giant fit
You'd better duck, and hope for luck, or you just might get hit!


Ma-hittable the horrible, she strikes yet once again
You can take her out to dinner and act like your best friend
But - when the when the food arrives and everyone digs in
Mahittable the horrible, she gets that evil grin

And she throws and she throws....
and the food, flies everywhere
You'd better duck, and hope for luck. Mahittable is here!

Ma-hittable the horrible, she strikes yet once again
