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

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.

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

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

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

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

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

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 seams 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 seams 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 seams I don’t know how long I can hold on to you stringin’ me along Oh, I don’t know how long I can hold on to you stringin’ me along

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

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
