porter harrast Older album, her voice its distinctly more innocent or at least youthful sounding. Despite similar somber themes it comes across as quite a bit more lighthearted. Favorite track: Candy Man.

Hassles It's just seriously great great stuff. Heaps of presence but not too much power and of course that great voice so wonderfully captured delivering an excellent array of songs.

Track Name: Foolish Girl
I’m a foolish girl for falling for a broken soul
Ravaged by a woman who stole his heart for her own
And in the wreckage she left a crippled boy

And I’m not trying to fix you
I’m not trying to harm you
Just want to be arm and arm and arm and arm with you
Just want to be arm and arm and arm and arm with you

I’m a foolish girl for being alone with you
Because I like to pretend there’s no one else in the room
But I know exactly where she sits behind those eyes

And I’m not trying to harm you
I’m not trying to charm you
Just want to be arm and arm and arm and arm with you
Just want to be arm and arm and arm and arm with you

I’m a foolish girl for falling for a broken soul
Ravaged by a woman who stole his heart for her own

And I’m not trying to fix you
I’m not trying to harm you
Just want to be arm and arm and arm and arm with you
Just want to be arm and arm and arm and arm with you
Track Name: Hate/ Love
My rambling mind keeps on wandering back to you
And despite my efforts I can’t find somebody new
And it kills me to see that you moved on without me
And how you left me broken stranded in the dirt

I don’t know if I love to hate you
I don't know if I love to hate you
Or If I hate to love you

You said I was your world with the most serious face
Who knew the earth could be so easily replaced
Well you flung me out of orbit and I don’t know what to do
Because even though you broke my heart the pieces still revolve around you

I don’t know if I love to hate you
I don't know if I love to hate you
Or If I hate to love you

Well I decided that it’s better to just leave you be
I’m glad that you found your happiness but wish you could’ve found it in me
So I guess I’ll just sit here hating you bitter and alone
Waiting for that key in the door sound that tells me that you found your way home

I don’t know if I love to hate you
I don't know if I love to hate you I think I, I think I I think I hate to love
Track Name: Candy Man
Mr candy man I don’t know how much I can have
Your sugar is the sweetest but my mama says it’s bad
Oh, I don’t know how much more I can take of this
But your soft, sugar kisses are just too hard to resist

I like you in the morning I like you after work
I like you in the afternoon I like you for dessert
I like you when you’re my cherry on top
I like you Mr candy man cause you always hit the spot
You’re sweeter than you’re sweeter than
Oh

Mr candy man, can’t get your words out of my head
You said you like me like your breakfast, you like me in your bed
I wish you were like my breakfast, keep me nice and full
But instead you leave me starving hungering for more

I like you in the morning I like you after work
I like you in the afternoon I like you for dessert
I like you when you’re my cherry on top
I like you Mr candy man cause you always hit the spot
You’re sweeter than you’re sweeter than

Mr candy man you’ve got me shaking up a storm
And the only thing that’s going to help if a helping of some more
The only thing to pacify this stubborn sweet tooth
Is a big old helping, a good old helping, a big strong helping of you…

I like you in the morning
I like you after work
I like you in the afternoon
I like you for dessert
You’re sweeter than

Chocolate, sweeter than a blueberry pie,
Sweeter than peaches and cream, any other guy
Mr candy man, mr candy man, mr candy man, mr candy man
Track Name: Freezing
You’re cold as ice with a blistering air
And before I met you I thought everybody had a heart to care
I thought those shivers down my spine were something that
You feel when you’re loved
But you showed me love isn’t something everybody’s capable of

You left me freezing
You left me like you
And now there’s not a single part of my body
To warm up to

You said you liked me for my rosy cheeks and my doe blue eyes
I guess you took the color with you hung me out, you hung me out to dry
Cause now these eyes are frozen over and I’ve assumed a porcelain tone
You took the life and the living with you when you left me alone

You left me freezing
You left me like you
And now there’s not a single part of my body
To warm up to

Boys and girls watch your hearts you could be next
He’ll tear the soul right out of your chest
And he’ll leave you with nothing except for your name
And a bitterness that runs far deeper than pain
Choose your enemies wisely cause you’ll start doing what they do
You’ll want everybody to be just as cold and cruel as you

You left me freezing
You left me like you
And now there’s not a single part of my body
To warm up to
Track Name: Song For My Lovelies
I unlocked my heart and gave you an extra key
And when you decided to move in well that was just fine with me
But now you’re packing up your things
And I don’t know what to do
Cause this house won’t be a home without you

My darling friends goodbye
My darling friends goodbye
Thanks for sharing with me all the good times

With every little thing that you move out the door
The walls start to crumble and my heart breaks a little more
And even though my heart’s collapsing
Cause you’re taking away your box
I want you to know that I’ll never change the lock

My darling friends goodbye
My darling friends goodbye
Thanks for sharing with me all the good times

Now that we’ve parted and these tears have dried
I think I finally understand what it feels to be empty inside
Cause reaching out for that something constant
When it’s no longer there
Is the loneliest feeling I’ve ever had to bare

My darling friends goodbye
My darling friends goodbye
My darling friends goodbye
My darling friends goodbye
Thanks for sharing with me all the good times
Track Name: Marionette
Honey I feel like I’m hanging on for dear life My palms are raw and blistered and my knuckles are white My body’s bloodied and bruised from being dragged around ‘Cause, honey, you must’ve pulled me one hundred times round this damn town Baby, baby, won’t you have some mercy on me? My heart’s being pulled apart at the seems I don’t know how long I can hold on To you stringin’ me along You banged up my heart you shredded up my mind I’m captive in my house waiting for you to ring that doorbell of mine I’d rather have you say you never want to see me again Than reap those seeds of false hope that you keep plantin’
Baby, baby, won’t you have some mercy on me? My heart’s being pulled apart at the seems I don’t know how long I can hold on To you stringin’ me along
Sugar, if you just left me alone I could learn to mend this broken heart all on my own
Your kisses make my cuts and bruises disappear But once you’ve used up all my lovin there’s no need for you to stay here So I’m muddy and bloody and broken boned and soar As you run across town to knock on some other lover’s door Baby, baby, won’t you have some mercy on me? My heart’s being pulled apart at the seems I don’t know how long I can hold on to you Stingin’ me along Oh, I don’t know how long I can hold on to you Stringin’ me along
Track Name: The Boat Song
Let’s build a boat we can sail away from here
I’ve got soul in my sail driven by fear
A fear of staying in the same place, going nowhere
Let’s build a boat and paddle hard from this shore
I’ve got nothing to lose and all to live for
And lately I haven’t been doing much living here anymore

I want to live and I want to learn
How to love somebody who’ll love me in turn
I want to see the world and see myself grow
I want to know that my life’s living for

Let’s build a boat and just fill it with ourselves
I’ll pack everything in boxes and keep them on the shelves
Cause I don’t mind leaving anything behind
I’ll I need in this boat is a paper and pen
My guitar and some sort of destination
And maybe I can find a new beginning

I want to live and I want to learn
How to love somebody who’ll love me in turn
I want to see the world and see myself grow
I want to know that my life’s living for
I’m done with the same old story
I won’t watch my reflection get boring
I’ll shatter this mirror and be out of here by morning

I’ll meet you at the docks
Just before ten o’clock
Because I’m leaving with the sunshine
And I can’t wait for you this time

I want to live and I want to learn
How to love somebody who’ll love me in turn
I want to see the world and see myself grow
I want to know that my life’s living for
Track Name: The Go Ahead
It’s not that I don’t think that’d we’d fit perfectly
There’s just a black hole where my heart should be
And I’m so sorry for wasting your time
It’s just love’s not a passion of mine

You gave me the go ahead so why do I turn you down?
Ooh, I got nobody
You gave me the go ahead so why do I turn you down?
You know I could really use somebody, of I could really use somebody
You gave me the go ahead

And six feet under I’ll be alone
With nothing but a wood box and a head stone
But I guess it’s okay because I’m not afraid of dying
But if I said I wasn’t scared to live alone honey I’d be lying

You gave me the go ahead so why do I turn you down?
Ooh, I got nobody
You gave me the go ahead so why do I turn you down?
You know I could really use somebody, of I could really use somebody
You gave me the go ahead

I’d rather be alone and just safe guarded
Than mend the salted wounds of being open hearted

It’s not that I don’t think that we’d fit perfectly
There’s just a black hole where my heart should be
I’m gunna blame it on me how cowardly I can be
I want something so bad but won’t risk the pain

You gave me the go ahead so why do I turn you down?
Ooh, I got nobody
You gave me the go ahead so why do I turn you down?
You know I could really use somebody, of I could really use somebody
You gave me the go ahead
