MUSIC ONE:

 

I’m Looking Through You

Sung by the Beatles in their Rubber Soul Album
written by Lennon-McCartney

 

I'm looking through you,
Where did you go?
I thought I knew you.
What did I know?
You don't look different but you have changed.
I'm looking through you.
You're not the same.

You're lips are moving
I cannot hear
You're voice is soothing
But the words aren't clear.
You don't sound different
I've learned the game.
I'm looking through you.
You're not the same.

 

CHORUS:
Why tell me why did you not treat me right?
Love has a nasty habit of disappearing overnight.

You're thinking of me
the same old way
You were above me
But not today
The only difference
is you're down there
I'm looking through you.
and you're nowhere.

REPEAT CHORUS
 

I'm looking through you,
Where did you go?
I thought I knew you.
What did I know?
You don't look different but you have changed.
I'm looking through you.
You're not the same.


Yeah, I tell you you've changed.

 

MUSIC TWO

 

Bitch

sung by Meredith Brooks
and written by Meredith Brooks/Shelly Pieken

 

I hate the world today
Your so good to me,
I know but I can't change
Tried to tell you but you looked at me like maybe
I'm an angel underneath innocent and sweet

Yesterday I cried
You must have been relieved to see the softer side
I can understand how you'd be so confused
I don't evny you
I'm a little bit of everything all rolled into one

CHORUS:

I'm a bitch
I'm a lover
I'm a child
I'm a mother
I'm a sinner
I'm a saint
I do not feel ashamed
I'm your hell
I'm your dream
I'm nothing in between
You know you wouldn't want it any other way

So take me as I am
This may mean you'll have to be a stronger man
Rest assured that when I start to make you nervous
And I'm going to extremes
Tomorrow I will change and today won't mean a thing

Just when you think you got me figured out
The season's already changin'
I think it's cool you do whatcha do and don't try to save me

CHORUS:

I'm a bitch
I'm a tease
I'm a goddess on my knees
When you're hurt
When you suffer I'm your angel undercover
I've been numb
I'm revived
Can't say I'm not alive
You know I wouldn't want it any other way 

 

 

MUSIC THREE

 

Who I AM

sung by Jessica Andrews and written by Brett James/Troy Verges

 

If I live to be a hundred
and never see the seven wonders
that'll be allright
if I don't make to the big leagues
if I never win a grammy
I'm gonna be just fine.
'cause I know exactly who I am.

CHORUS:
I am Rosemary's granddaughter
the spitting image of my father
and when the day is done
my momma's still my biggest fan
sometimes, I'm clueless and I'm clumsy
but I have friends who love me
and they know just where I stand
it's all a part of me
it's who I am.

So when I make a big mistake
when I fall flat on my face
I know I'll be allright
should my tender heart be broken
I will cry those teardrops knowing
I will be just fine.
'cause nothing changes who I am

 

REPEAT CHORUS:

I'm a saint and I'm a sinner
I'm a loser, I'm a winner
I'm steady and unstable
I'm young and I am able

REPEAT CHORUS (x2)

that's who I am.

 

MUSIC FOUR:

 

Forty-Six & 2

by Tool

My shadow's
Shedding skin and
I've been picking
Scabs again.
I'm down
Digging through
My old muscles
Looking for a clue.

I've been crawling on my belly
Clearing out what could've been.
I've been wallowing in my own confused
And insecure delusions
For a piece to cross me over
Or a word to guide me in.
I wanna feel the changes coming down.
I wanna know what I've been hiding in

My shadow.
Change is coming through my shadow.
My shadow's shedding skin
I've been picking
My scabs again.

I've been crawling on my belly
Clearing out what could've been.
I've been wallowing in my own chaotic
And insecure delusions.

I wanna feel the change consume me,
Feel the outside turning in.
I wanna feel the metamorphosis and
Cleansing I've endured within

My shadow
Change is coming.
Now is my time.
Listen to my muscle memory.
Contemplate what I've been clinging to.
Forty-six and two ahead of me.

I choose to live and to
Grow, take and give and to
Move, learn and love and to
Cry, kill and die and to
Be paranoid and to
Lie, hate and fear and to
Do what it takes to move through.

I choose to live and to
Lie, kill and give and to
Die, learn and love and to
Do what it takes to step through.

See my shadow changing,
Stretching up and over me.
Soften this old armor.
Hoping I can clear the way
By stepping through my shadow,
Coming out the other side.
Step into the shadow.
Forty six and two are just ahead of me.

 

 

MUSIC FIVE:

 

I Am A Mirror

by The Alan Parsons Project
Written by Eric Woolfson and Alan Parsons

Copyright 1990 The Freudiana Music Company Limited

Copyright 1997 The Avenue / Avenue Communications.

The function of the psychoanalyst
Suppose I were to tell you that the meaning of dreams
Is not all that it seems
And the ultimate truth is a lie
And you are just a puppet who can dance on a string
Do you feel anything
Would you laugh would you care would you cry

But the meaning of life is a mystery
How can anyone disagree
And the music of life is a symphony
Which we play in a minor key

CHORUS:
I am a mirror, I am a mirror, looking at me you see yourself
I am a mirror, I am a mirror, every face is someone else
Look at me smile and you're the clown
And if I dance you turn around
Look in my eyes and see your tears
Until the music disappears


So if you are confused and don't know which way to go
You will certainly know
From the moment we're living we die
And if it's all a crazy game you don't want to play
Tell me what you can say
It's a joke, it's the truth, it's a lie

But the meaning of life is a mystery
That we don't understand so far
And the music of life is a rhapsody
If you're happy the way that you are

CHORUS:
I am a mirror, I am a mirror, looking at me you see yourself
I am a mirror, I am a mirror, every face is someone else
Look at me smile and you're the clown
And if I dance you turn around
Look in my eyes and see your tears
Until the music disappears

And the meaning of life is a mystery
Though we live it from day to day
But the music of live should be harmony
So that anyone here can play

CHORUS:

I am a mirror, I am a mirror, looking at me you see yourself
I am a mirror, I am a mirror, every face is someone else
Look at me smile and you're the clown
And if I dance you turn around
Look in my eyes and see your tears
Until the music disappears
 

MUSIC SIX:

 

Adelia, My Darling
Written by John Austin Cater, III

copyright 2008 Houston, Texas


Well a good friend of ours told me your good news
That you'll soon be wearing white from your head to your shoes
Then I heard who it was that you would soon wed
and I think I must warn you about what's been said

but how would you feel if I didn't call
You'd be furious at me if I said nothing at all
And warned you about all the bad things he's done
I swear to you Adelia he's a son of a gun

 

Adelia my darling don't marry that cowboy
He ain't no damn good as anyone can see
He's a ramble and a gambler, he'll never be faithful
I know one when I see one, he's just like me

 

Well her face lost all expression, she made a sound like she was choking
Her eyes turned into dots and her mouth just dropped wide open.
they say in life, if it's not one thing, it's another, the hell of it is its the
same thing over and over
It's a universal law, you just cannot cheat it
If you don't learn from the past, you are going to repeat it

 

Now that I've told you, don't you dare be surprised
When he's got lipstick on his zipper and tells you his lies
When your bank account is empty and your credit cards are gone
Don't say I didn't warn you, you knew it all along

but how would you feel if I didn't call
You'd be furious at me if I said nothing at all
And warned you about all the bad things he's done
I swear to you Adelia he's a son of a gun

 

Adelia my darling don't marry that cowboy
He ain't no damn good as anyone can see
He's a rambler and a gambler, he'll never be faithful
I know one when I see one, he's just like me

Adelia my darling don't marry that cowboy
he ain't no good as anyone can see
He's a rambler and a gambler, he'll never be faithful
I know one when I see one, he's just like me
I know one when I see one, he's just like me

 

MUSIC SEVEN:

 

Shadow Boxer
Sung by Fiona Apple


Once my lover, now my friend.
What a cruel thing to pretend.
What a cunning way to condescend.
Once my lover, now my friend.

Oh, you creep up like the clouds.
And you set my soul to ease.
Then you let your love abound.
And you bring me to my knees.

Oh, it’s evil, babe, the way you let your grace enrapture me.
When, well, you know, I’d be insane
To ever let that dirty game recapture me.

You made me a shadowboxer, baby.
I wanna be ready for what you do.
I been swinging all around me.
cause I don’t know when you’re gonna make your move.

Oh, your gaze is dangerous.
And you fill your space so sweet.
If I let you get too close,
You’ll set your spell on me.

So, darlin’, I just wanna say.
Just in case I don’t come through.
I was on to every play.
I just wanted you.

But, oh, it’s so evil, my love,
The way you’ve no reverence to my concern.
So, I’ll be sure to stay wary of you, love,
To save the pain of once my flame and twice my burn.

You made me a shadowboxer, baby.
I wanna be ready for what you do.
I been swinging all around me.
cause I don’t know when you’re gonna make your move.

 

MUSIC EIGHT:

 

Man In The Mirror

sung by Michael Jackson and Songwriters: Ballard, Glen; Garrett, Siedah;

Songwriters: Ballard, Glen; Garrett, Siedah


Ooh ooh ooh aah
Gotta make a change
For once in my life
It's gonna feel real good
Gonna make a difference
Gonna make it right

 

As I turned up the collar on
A favorite winter coat
This wind is blowin' my mind
I see the kids in the street
With not enough to eat
Who am I to be blind
Pretending not to see their needs

A summer's disregard
A broken bottle top
And a one man's soul
They follow each other
On the wind ya' know
'Cause they got nowhere to go
That's why I want you to know

 

I'm starting with the man in the mirror
I'm asking him to change his ways
And no message could have been any clearer
If you wanna make the world a better place
Take a look at yourself and then make a change, yey
Na na na, na na na, na na na na oh ho

 

I've been a victim of
A selfish kinda love
It's time that I realize
There are some with no home
Not a nickel to loan
Could it be really pretending that they're not alone?

 

A willow deeply scarred
Somebody's broken heart
And a washed out dream
(Washed out dream)
They follow the pattern of the wind ya' see
'Cause they got no place to be
That's why I'm starting with me

 

I'm starting with the man in the mirror
I'm asking him to change his ways
And no message could have been any clearer
If you wanna make the world a better place
Take a look at yourself and then make a change

I'm starting with the man in the mirror
I'm asking him to change his ways
And no message could have been any clearer
If you wanna make the world a better place
Take a look at yourself and then make that change

 

I'm starting with the man in the mirror
(Man in the mirror, oh yeah)
I'm asking him to change his ways, yeah
(Change)
No message could have been any clearer
If you wanna make the world a better place
Take a look at yourself and then make the change
You gotta get it right, while you got the time
'Cause when you close your heart
(You can't close your, your mind)
Then you close your mind

(That man, that man, that man)
(That man, that man, that man)
(With the man in the mirror, oh yeah)
(That man you know, that man you know)
(That man you know, that man you know)
I'm asking him to change his ways
(Change)


No message could have been any clearer
If you wanna make the world a better place
Take a look at yourself then make that change

(Na na na, na na na, na na na na)
Ooh
Oh yeah
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
(Na na na, na na na, na na na na)

Oh no
Oh no, I'm gonna make a change
It's gonna feel real good
Sure mon
(Change)


Just lift yourself
You know, you got to stop it yourself
(Yeah)
Oh
Make that change
(I gotta make that change today, oh)
(Man in the mirror)
You got to, you got to not let yourself, brother oh
Yeah
You know that
(Make that change)


(I gotta make that make me then make)
You got, you got to move
Sure mon, sure mon
You got to
(Stand up, stand up, stand up)
Make that change
Stand up and lift yourself, now
(Man in the mirror)
Make that change
(Gonna make that change, sure mon)
(Man in the mirror)
You know it, you know it, you know it, you know
(Change)
Make that change

 

 

MUSIC NINE

 

Demons

Sung by Kenny Chesney

Songwriters:
Bill Anderson / Jon Randall

 

Sometimes they're in a bottle

Sometimes a pair of high-heel shoes

Some come rolled in paper

Some have six strings and only play the blues

 

Once you've met the Devil

There ain't no way he'll let you be

When I'm not chasing demons

There's demons chasing me

 

The skeletons in closets

Ghosts underneath the bed

They hide out in pictures

And words better left unsaid

 

They hang around like perfume

And haunt me like an ancient melody

When I'm not chasing demons

There's demons chasing me

 

There's things that I can't leave alone

'Cause they won't leave me alone

'Cause what I want ain't what I need

 

Still I reach for the things I crave

And better try to run away

Maybe I'm afraid of being free

'Cause when I'm not chasing demons

There's demons chasing me

 

So roll one up and light it

Pick up my old guitar

I'm playing 'Crossroads'

image: http://static.urx.io/units/web/urx-unit-loader.gif

 

Drinking whiskey from a mason jar

 

There's heartache at my front door

Says she needs my company

When I'm not chasing demons

There's demons chasing me

 

There's things that I can't leave alone

'Cause they won't leave me alone

What I want ain't what I need

 

Still I reach for the things I crave

Better try to run away

Am I afraid of being free? You tell me

 

'Cause when I'm not chasing demons

There's demons chasing me

When I'm not chasing demons

There's demons chasing me

 

There's demons chasing me

There's demons chasing me

When I'm not chasing demons

There's demons chasing me

 

There's demons chasing me

Demons chasing me

There's demons chasing me

When I'm not chasing demons

There's demons chasing me
