NORTH CAROLINA
Melissa Ferrick


i'm a mile and a half off of the tracks

in Raleigh, North Carolina

with my

foot all jammed up from driving

14 hours

and my body can't sit upright

hanging around watching the t.v. on mute

listening to all of my money making peers



yeah and it's

hard not to go to that

place in my head

that'll stop me from ever leaving this room

yeah and it's all so confusing

because i'm all worked up

because all my thoughts are tangled into one

panicked line of white noise



drown out the voices

drown out the noise

drown out the bitterness yeah that I have stored

drown out my wanting

drown out the fear

you know that everything i've worked for

is just going to

disappear



because ever since I left you

i've got no one to call

i've got nothing to do but sit around and think about how I could have not hurt you

I am so sick of feeling so sorry for myself you know I go from I go from insanely happy

to no I don't want to be around anybody else

i'm not sure if you know exactly how you feel about me so

let me tell you how you

feel about me



drown out the voices

drown out the noise

drown out the bitterness yeah that I have stored

drown out my wanting

drown out the fear

you know that everything i've worked for

is just going

disappear



so I pretend i'm connected

I pretend I can feel

I pretend I care about what you think

'cause intensity

it's never really

been a problem for me

so i'm sorry if I scared you

I just want to be loved...



drown out the voices

drown out the noise

drown out the bitterness that I have stored

drown out my wanting

drown out the fear

you know that everything i've worked for

is just going to

drown out the voices

drown out the noise

drown out the bitterness yeah that I have stored

drown out my wanting

drown out the fear

you know that everything i've worked for

is just going to

disappear



i'm a mile and a half off of the tracks

in Raleigh, North Carolina


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
