So Low

music & lyrics by leela

you are one of a kind
you are something else
I have never met
anyone like you
one of a kind

so low
you’ve brought me so low
so low
you’ve brought me so low

you’re superfluous
superfluous
I have never met

anyone like you
superfluous

so low
you’ve brought me so low
so low
you’ve brought me so low

what is great (what?)
Is that this is as low as it gets
and the only way for me
now is up

so low
you’ve brought me so low
so low
you’ve brought me so low

you are one of a kind
superfluous

I Never Cry

music & lyrics by leela

got a smile on my face
but inside i cry
my face will never show
what i’m feeling inside
i may look surrounded
but i feel left out
got a smile on my face
but inside I cry
my face will never show
what I’m feeling inside
i may look strong
but there’s a pain in my heart

everybody say’s:
“boys don’t cry”
and i always wanted
equal rights
that’s why
i never cry
everyone says:
“big girls don’t cry,
live up to the expectations!”
l tried,
and so i never cry

got a smile on my face
but inside i cry
my face will never show
what I’m feeling inside
I may look surrounded
but i feel left out
got a smile on my face
but inside i cry
my face will never show
what i’m feeling inside
i may look strong
but there’s a pain in my heart

maybe boys don’t shed a tear
but that doesn’t give me equality
just ‘cause i never cry
imagine, if i let myself cry
i might get someone
who stands by my side
still, I never cry

everybody say’s:
“boys don’t cry”
and i always wanted
equal rights
that’s why
i never cry
everyone says:
“big girls don’t cry,
live up to the expectations!”
i tried,
and so, i never cry

you need to be strong
to lose control
and you need to grow up
to find the child in your soul

Tell Me

music & lyrics by leela

and so i was your joke
but i almost had a stroke
when i saw you together

you gave me my new life
then stabbed me with a knife
i thought i’d be your wife

how could you be
such a stranger to me?
how could you be?

tell me
how on earth would you go on without me?
tell me
how on earth were you not thinking about me?

and so i want to talk
about that dream you broke
when i saw you together

you brought me some good vibes
then left my heart to die
you never said goodbye

how could you be
such a stranger to me?
how could you be?

tell me
how on earth would you go on without me?
tell me
how on earth were you not thinking about me?

now that you’re far and cold
your sweetness is getting old
your scent’s still soaked in my skin
making me fly from within
today my friend, you’re feeling high
but in a while
you’ll be the one to cry

tell me
how on earth would you go on without me?
tell me how on earth
were you not thinking about me?

Cruel

music & lyrics by leela

if you think you’ve got the power
to mess with my heart
you might like to reconsider
think it through tonight
just before you start
cause you might be surprised

just because you could
doesn’t mean you should
be mean to me
but if you insist
i will not resist
showing you my other me

as much as you need me
to punish you
i say: no!
i won’t be dragged into
this game of yours
i’ll just go

as much as you beg me
to punish you
i say: no!
i won’t waste my time
or my energy
i’ll just go

if you think i’ve got the time
to let you mess with my mind
then you’ve lost the plot
it seems like you want me
to fill your unhealthy needs
and make you satisfied

as the days go bye
you live a lie
so pleasurably
cause you’re such a fool
then I must be cruel
and stop this parody

as much as you need me
to punish you
i say: no!
i won’t be dragged into
this game of yours
i’ll just go
as much as you beg me
to punish you
i say: no!
iI won’t waste my time
or my energy
i’ll just go
as much as you need me
to punish you
iI say: no!
we both know you’re
crazy about my body
well, tough!
watch me go…

Weak

music & lyrics by leela

i wanna write a song
about how you changed
my point of view
i thought that you were strong
i realized that you’re not
i thought you were leading
I was swept away
by your assertiveness
but then when you were gone
i knew that I was wrong

you’re so weak
all the warmth a gave you
was in vain
it was too big for you to bear
you turned a sweet thing into pain
you’re so weak
all the warmth a gave you
was in vain
it was too big for you to bear
you turned a sweet thing into pain

iI wanna tell you now
how sad I am for you
you seem to be so strong
but actually you’re not
you save yourself by leaving
save yourself from love
that’s all you ever do
how will you find the truth?

you’re so weak
all the warmth a gave you
was in vain
it was too big for you to bear
you turned a sweet thing into pain
you’re so weak
all the warmth a gave you
was in vain
it was too big for you to bear
you turned a sweet thing into pain

Deeper

music & lyrics by leela

i feel that i’m alive
it makes me wanna dive
into a deeper ocean
i wanna feel the waves in my hair

i need to go alone
it makes me feel i’m strong
when i’m in motion
i feel it’s time i stopped checking if you care

and when I’m settled down
then you’ll come around
and everything will turn upside down
i’ll be the last to laugh
‘cause you won’t get enough
of me

~

Garnd’pa

music & lyrics by leela

my grandpa
wise and loved
my grandpa is gone
my grandpa sits in heaven
seeing all that goes on
tell me am i on the right track?
grandpa, give me a sign
just a bit of encouragement
if you've got the time

my grandpa
loving and warm
passed away long ago
my grandpa always with me
in my heart, wherever i go
grandpa, tell me are you happy
with who i have become?
i really need your encouragement
if you've got the time

down come the tears
washing away this song
days become years
but you never come along
what is up there
that ain't down here?
i really hope they treat you well
otherwise you should be near

grandpa look, i'm all grown up
i'm a woman now
it was tough growin' up without you
but I made it through somehow
grandpa you know
there have been times
i wanted to join you so much
but you came to me in my dream
said "it is not your time"
but now i don't even want to go
'cause i'm happy here
i really hope they treat you well
otherwise you should be near

down come the tears
washing away this song
days become years
but you never come along
what is up there?
that ain't down here?
i really hope they treat you well
otherwise you should be near

down come the tears
washing away this song
days become years
but you never come along
what is up there?
the unknown’s my fear
i really hope they treat you well
otherwise you should be here
