🎧  ALANIS MORISSETTE SUCH PRETTY FORKS IN THE ROAD ŞARKI SÖZLERİ

Smiling

This is a life of extremes

Both sides are slippery and enticing

These are my places off the rails

 

And this, my loose recollection of a falling

I barely remember who I failed

I was just trying to keep it together

 

This is my first wave of my white flag

This is the sound of me hitting bottom

This my surrender, if that's what you call it

In the anatomy of my crash

 

And I keep on smiling

Keep on moving

Can't stand still

 

Me, the notorious bottom dweller

Me, the ceiling-less brave explorer

Lured to the ends of overwhelm

 

This is my first wave of the white flag

This is the sound of me hitting bottom

This my surrender, if that's what I call it

In the anatomy of my crash

 

And I keep on smiling

Keep on moving

Can't stand still

 

Such pretty forks in the road

On this continuum I've been bouncing

Life flashing promise before my eyes

 

This is my first wave of my white flag

This is the sound of me hitting bottom

This my surrender, if I can bare it

In the anatomy of my crash

 

And I keep on smiling

Keep on moving

Can't stand still

Ablaze

First thing that you'll notice is some separation from each other

Yes it's a lie we've been believing since time immemorial

There was an apple, there was a snake, there was division

There was a split, there was a conflict in the fabric of life

 

One became two and then everyone was out for themselves

Everyone was pitted against each other; conflict ruled the realm

All our devotions and temperaments are pulled from different wells

We seem to easily forget we are made of the same cells

 

To my boy, all that energy so vital

Love your hues and your blues in equal measure

Your comings and your goings-away

My mission is to keep the light in your eyes ablaze

 

Second thing you'll notice is that often we think that there's not enough

It might feel dark, it might feel lonely and you wonder why you're here

You may be overcome with darkness and a sense of hopelessness

But it won't matter if you keep the core connected to the oneness

 

To my girl, all your innocence and fire

When you reach out, I am here hell or high water

This nest is never going away

My mission is to keep the light in your eyes ablaze

 

And this cord is unbreakable

This pilot light is there in your pocket

And this bond, beyond unshakeable

Even if we all forget

All at the same time

If we forget at the same time

 

To my boy, my precious gentle warrior

To your sweetness and your strength in exploring

May this bond stay with you through all your days

My mission is to keep the light in your eyes ablaze

 

To my girls, all your innocence and fire

When you reach out, I am here hell or high water

This nest is never going away

My mission is to keep the light in your eyes ablaze

 

To my boy

First thing that you'll notice is that everything is temporary

To my girl

Next thing you might notice is that we will always be family

To my boy

My mission is to keep the light in your eyes ablaze

Reasons I Drink

These are the reasons I drink

The reasons I tell everybody I'm fine even though I am not

These are the reasons I overdo it

I have been working since I can remember, since I was single digits

Now, even though I've been busted

I don't know where to draw the line 'cause that groove has gotten so deep

 

And nothing can give reprieve like they do

Nothing can give a break for this soldier like they do

 

Here we are

I feel such rapture and my comfort is so strong

One more hit

It feels so helpful in my need for respite

 

And here are the reasons I eat

Reasons I feel everything so deeply when I'm not medicated

And so that's it, I am buying a Lamborghini

To make up for these habits, to survive this sick industry

 

Nothing can give reprieve like they do

Nothing can give me a break from this torture like they do

 

Here we are

I feel such rapture and my comfort is so strong

One more sip

It feels so helpful in my need for some long overdue respite

 

And these are the reasons I don't even think I would quit

And these are the reasons I can't even see straight

And these are the ones whom I know it so deeply affects

And I am left wondering how I would I function without it

 

Here we are

I feel such rapture and my comfort is so strong

One more rip

I go from one lily pad to another to stay lit

Diagnosis

Call it what you want

Cuz I don't even care anymore

Call me what you need to

To make yourself comfortable

 

I've not left the house in a while

I've not felt a glimpse of ease

And I have not made much headway

Since I have come back from the war

 

And I no longer give a damn

Bout things that used to matter

And I am covering my eyes

As I am frozen on the spot

 

Call it what you want

Cuz I don't even care anymore

Call me what you need to

To make yourself comfortable

 

So I am debilitated

I can't remember where the sentence started when I'm trying to finish it

And all of you are so frustrated

And everyone around me is trying to help as much as they can

 

My house is spotless, my lens is

Skewed, my limbs they recoil

And I'm folding in on myself

Since I am out of order

 

Call it what you want

Cuz I don't even care anymore

Call me what you want to

To make yourself comfortable

 

So I am debilitated

I can't remember where the sentence started when I'm trying to finish it

And all of you are so frustrated

And everyone around me is trying to help as much as they can

 

But I'm alone in this meltdown

Of nervousness diagnosis

 

Call it what you want

Cuz I don't even care anymore

Call me what you need to

To make yourself comfortable

 

So I am debilitated

I can't remember where the sentence started when I'm trying to finish it

And all of you are so frustrated

And everyone around me is trying to help as much as they can

 

Call it what you want

Call me what you need to

To feel comfortable

Missing The Miracle

You call it bright

And I call it simple

And somewhere in the middle is truth

 

You see the hill

And I see the castle

Our front that was united is doomed, ooh

 

You call this brick and mortar

I call this sacred skin

You see the figure skater

I fear the ice is thin and

The light is all around us

But when we spar, it's dim

We're right here in the middle

Missing the miracle

 

You see the cloud

And I see the lining

And somewhere in the middle is sun

 

And you say it's greatness

And I say bad timing

And when we leave the ring, no one's won, ooh

 

I go for the jugular

You knock till you get in

You hold the loud and raucous

And I hear the dropping pin and

You run all front and center

I whisper paper thin

We're right here in the middle

Missing the miracle

 

The winter gets long

The rapids get white

And what doesn't kill us

Turns to grey

 

You call this brick and mortar

I call this sacred skin

You see the figure skater and

I fear the ice is thin and

The light is all around us

But when we spar it's dim

We're right here in the middle

Missing the miracle

 

Missing the miracle

(The light is all around us)

Missing the miracle

(The light is all around us)

Missing the miracle

Losing The Plot

Welcome back insomnia

Ushered back into silence only when everyone else is sleeping

And 'cause the city is sleeping

No one ruthless is rushing to get to the front of the line as usual

 

'Cause I am losing the plot

I am grieving the end of superwoman-ing

I have laid down my cape

As though I haven't risen like a phoenix from a thousand deaths

As though I have not been reborn to notice that

My mission is not dead yet

 

I'm exhausted midas

Reigniting a hunger that typically fuels those of us

Still searching for something outside ourselves

'Cause this city bears violence

And everybody is rushing to sob at the podium

And thank the ones who loved and exploited well

 

I am losing the plot

I am grieving the end of superwoman-ing

I have laid down my cape

As though I haven't risen like a phoenix from a thousand deaths

As though I haven't been reborn to notice that my mission is not dead yet

 

The light at the end of the tunnel

The one I have always prayed for is a train

At a hundred miles per hour

And it promises to break my bones if I don't stand still

Rip my heart out ambition mill or bust

With my relevance in dust

 

And I am losing the plot

I am grieving the end of superwoman-ing

I have laid down my cape

As though I haven't risen like a phoenix from a thousand deaths

As though I haven't been reborn to notice that my mission is not dead

As though this fame and pressure has not been a vice around my head

As though my heart has not kept all my cynicism under the mattress

And I can't keep it up

Though the fire is not out yet

I am losing the plot

Reckoning

Hey, hey, little wanderer

You walked the fields with all the fences down

You never knew the scent of the predator

You didn't know the house was on fire

And so you worked

As you should

While they preyed on all you ached for

And they pounced

As they would

While the guards were away

Oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh

 

Hey, hey, you marauders

You got away while they claim I am a liar

Why aren't the gods and heroes all around me

Everyone's turning their eyes to the ground

And so, you strike

While it's hot

While the barricades are broken

You attacked

At your will

While all the locks are frayed

Oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh

Oh-oh, oh-oh-oh

Ooh, ooh-ooh

Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh

 

Hey, hey, you denier

Finally everyone is gathering 'round me

Now that we all know better, you'll be haunted

I hope you enjoy these drawings in your jail

And so

Brace, brace yourself

For this reckoning day

I was once

At a loss

Now I stand at the gate

Oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh

Oh-whoa, oh-whoa, oh-whoa, oh-whoa

Oh-whoa, oh-whoa, oh-whoa, oh-whoa

Oh-whoa, oh-whoa, oh-whoa, oh-whoa

Sandbox Love

Catapult me out

Of this fantasy

It's never been mine

It's always been yours

 

Take me back in time

Start all this from scratch

Please go slowly

'Cause I'm apprehensive

 

(Ooh) Into what really happened

(Ooh) I try not to remember

Here we go into the danger zone but this time with a friend

 

Awkward as fuck

Precious as fuck

Scary as fuck

Us in our sandbox

Sandbox love

 

I'm holding my breath

Smoke came from these ears

Said he can't control it

That it was my fault

 

Take me back to square one

And clear this flashing back

Please tread lightly

'Cause I'm an open affront

 

(Ooh) Into what really happened

(Ooh) I've tried to block it out and

Here we go into the danger zone but this time with a friend

 

Awkward as fuck

Sexy as fuck

Sacred as fuck

Us in our sandbox, sandbox love

 

'Cause I have not been ready for this challenge

My soul is shy when you ask for more contact

I close my eyes and picture myself somewhere else

 

Thanks for showing up

Thanks for proving them all wrong

'Cause you are my love

And you are not them

 

Healing as fuck

Playful as fuck

Present as fuck

Us in our sandbox

Sandbox love

 

Awkward as fuck

Sweet as fuck

Here as fuck

Us in our sandbox

Sandbox love

Her

I am on the floor

I am in my kitchen

This place is so familiar on my knees

I can hear the footsteps

I can see their back walking out

I don't know who to reach for when I need

 

And so I'll pray to Her today

I ask for mercy and I beg for pauses ooh

She's coming in warm all like Kali

And coursing through my veins like liquid Mary

Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh

 

She's not buying my shell

She sees right through my armor

She lingers in my shadows knowingly

 

She treats them like they're angels

And maybe they are angels really

She beckons me to braver inquiry

 

And so I pray to Her today

I ask for mercy and I beg for patience, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh

She's coming in hot all like Shakti

And coursing through my veins like liquid Mary

Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh

 

And even though she knows me well

It doesn't mean it's easy to pull me out of my self-imposed hell

 

She knows all of my secrets

When I'm out of my body

I'm starting to see outlines of her face

 

She follows me when I run away

And even when I cut her off

She still says that she loves me, come what may

 

And so I pray to Her today

I ask for mercy and I beg for pauses, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh

She's coming in hot like all Kali

And coursing through my veins like liquid Mary

Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh

Ooh, oh, oh

Nemesis

So I opened the front door

You walked in all handsome

And ready for something you saw in my eyes

Right here, we sat and we tripped out

Saw celestial mosaics and I fell and I crawled over and held your hand

 

And nobody worried about the roof being blown off

So I went farther than I'd ever gone before

 

Change, you are my nemesis

Transition, I hold my breath

This about-face, I'm excited

I'm excited yet, I'm filled with despair anticipation and dread

This metamorphosis closed the door and opened a window

 

And so I climbed the stairs and bled

And here was a starseed

Right here he came to us in the bed in our bedroom

And you trusted me enough

To follow me anywhere

Or the other way around

The other way around as well

And I blocked my nose and dove in the deep end

And swam like my life depended on it and it did

 

Change, you are my nemesis

Transition, I hold my breath

This about-face, I'm excited

I'm excited yet I'm filled with despair anticipation and dread

This metamorphosis closed the door and opened a window

 

Ohhh, ohhh

Ohhh, ohhh

Ohhh

 

Right here

In this very backyard

We promised forever

And we put our helmets on and threw the confetti

And then there's the phone call

Telling me to breathe in through my nose and out my mouth

And out came our girl faster than we thought

And now I am beyond recognition

I guess that's a good thing

And still, I want to go deeper

 

Change, you are my nemesis

Transition, I hold my breath

This about-face, I'm excited

I'm excited yet I'm filled with despair, anticipation and dread

This metamorphosis closed the door and opened a window

 

Ohhh, ohhh, ohhh, ahhh, ooh

Pedestal

I'm sure you've enjoyed the ride, who wouldn't?

I'm sure every perk has perked you up, how could it not?

And every opportunity through me helped you climb, didn't it?

Dropping my name blew doors open that were closed before

 

And one day you'll see that you've never really seen me

One day you'll find out that everything you dreamed of wasn't who stood before you

One day I won't be craved the way you crave me now

As this pedestal crumbles down

And crashes me to the ground

 

I'm sure you enjoyed my name, who wouldn't take advantage?

I'm sure you enjoyed this game and the proxy pride that you landed

And everything vicarious seemed to build you up

You grabbed my crown and got everything you wanted

 

And one day you'll see that you've never really loved me

One day you'll find out that everything you dreamed of wasn't who stood before you

One day I won't be craved the way you crave me now

As this pedestal crumbles down

And crashes me to the ground

 

You're left with a human being

You're left with a fallible soul

Oh, when the glitter falls

I'm here and sometimes average, sometimes more

When the glare of the lights grow dim

And you're left with a delicate real

When the bright lights clear, there's just me sitting here

 

One day you'll see that you've never really seen me

And one day you'll find out that everything you dreamed of, wasn't who stood before you

One day I won't be craved the way you crave me now

As this pedestal crumbles down

As this pedestal crashes down

Crashes me to the ground

 

I hope you enjoyed the ride, who wouldn't?

Who wouldn't?
