NEBRASKA
Melissa Ferrick


Yeah what are you waiting for
Why don't you just hurry up and go
Come on tear up and sweat for me
And kiss me
One more time

Because we knew you were better
Yes when you were out there on your own
And somewhere inside you
You were always getting up the nerve
Planning out your exit
Taking one deep breath to fake your forgiveness
And then walking out to fight fear
And her glorious roar

Yeah so go then
Just leave myself to me
Cause I got where I am
By getting back on my feet
Look at me I'm tough as nails
And sure I can stand up and sing back the wind
But my strength is in my soul
And unlike you my love
My soul it lives
Under my skin
Under my skin
Under my skin

Under your nerves baby
Hey I've been under your hands haven't I?
And I'm sorry to say
That your body
It just don't work for me nomore
Cause you've got me sick in the throat
Because it knows that I've been up here lying
Just trying to save face by smiling
When inside my heart looks like a disaster?
Like blown out semi tires
All over Nebraska
And I am
So far from a sure fire bet
You could give me a mile head start and
I'd still lose the race

Yeah so go then
Just leave myself to me
Cause I got where I am
By getting right back up on my feet
Look at me I'm tough as nails
And sure I can stand up here and sing back the wind
But my strength is in my soul
And unlike you my love
Unlike you
My soul it lives
Under my skin
Under my skin
Under my skin

Yeah so what are you waiting for boy
Why don't you just hurry up pack up all your stuff and go
Come on tear up and sweat for me
And kiss me one more time
Sing to me
Sing to me
Sing to me


MELISSA FERRICK

American singer-songwriter Melissa Ferrick (born September 21, 1970) emerged in 1991 as part of a group of new female alternative singer/songwriters, much in the vein of Liz Phair. Ferrick began singing in coffeehouses after dropping out of college, eventually winding up in Boston. Her major breakthrough arrived one night when she replaced Morrissey's opening act less than an hour before showtime. Ferrick's performance impressed Morrissey and he invited her to open for him during the rest of the tour. ... Read More
