These songs are spinning me in circles.


I'll Find Mine
by Meg and Dia

"Where is the laughter?
I saw a picture
You looked so happy
When I saw you with her
And I'm so glad
I knew you before you met her
So I know
How guys are before they get her.

I've got it down
You showed me again
Just so you know.
don't push me around
I know you resent that I'm alone
Pity and mercy
Do little for me
You know me better than anyone.

Go get your girl
she's looking at you
like you're crazy.
We can pretend you
never even knew me.
It would work out
don't let go of that one
And I'll find mine.

Run into you
Every time I walk out my door.
Oh, it's precious
you've never held my hand
like that before.
No need to stop and wave.
You stay calm and I'll be brave.
don't ever look down on me
don't ever feel bad for me.

I've got it down
You showed me again
Just so you know.
don't push me around
I know you resent that I'm alone
Pity and mercy
Do little for me
You know me better than anyone.

Go get your girl
she's looking at you
like you're crazy.
We can pretend you
never even knew me.
It would work out
don't let go of that one
And I'll find mine.

Oh, find mine.
Find mine.
Look at me, Look at me.
I've got time to find.
Mine. [4x]

I've got it down
You showed me again
Just so you know.
don't push me around
I know you resent that I'm alone
Pity and mercy
Do little for me
You know me better than anyone.

Go get your girl
she's looking at you
like you're crazy.
We can pretend you
never even knew me.
It would work out
don't let go of that one
And I'll find mine.
I'll find mine
I'll find mine"

Fighting For Nothing
by Meg and Dia

"When I was younger, I wish that I would have known better
Better love makes a fat romance, lasts for more than a shoe shine
I'm bolder, took all the words of my mother
Saying it could be worse
Could be born with that disease
Instead of catching it first

So let's go back to the first time
That I met you in your Chevy
With your hands stretched and me crying, screaming "mercy, mercy"
But I know that I was put here
To fight vikings in the cold war,
with my arms out in the front singing "tear me, tear me"

These things take time, love
These things take backbone
And they'll tell you what you want to hear
They say it gets better, better
But you better know how to point out the liars
You've got to win your wars, make sure
You're not fighting for nothing, nothing
Are you fighting for nothing, nothing

It feels like this world has been growing slowly upside down,
Maybe I should move to China, straighten this mess out
Maybe I'll be a poet, watch all the sky for falling words
Write about my grandma's curtains
Or the lady who put the chinese buffet in her purse

I've got my mouth, it's a weapon
It's bombshell, it's a cannon
I've got my words, I won't give them mercy, mercy

These things take time, love
These things take backbone
And they'll tell you what you want to hear
They say it gets better, better
But you better know how to point out the liars
You've got to win your wars, make sure
You're not fighting for nothing, nothing
Are you fighting for nothing, nothing

I hope they cut you open, make you seal the warn
For all the wrong reasons, make you see
that some things were worth bruising for
Make you see that your name is your honor code
Make you see that your hands you're accounted for
They can choose where your sweat and you blood will go
Make you see your life's not to be lived alone
Run the strip through your hair
You're worth nothing, nothing

These things take time, love
These things take backbone
And they'll tell you what you want to hear
They say it gets better, better
But you better know how to point out the liars
You've got to win your wars, make sure
You're not fighting for nothing, nothing
Are you fighting for nothing, nothing."
