Track Name: Second Thoughts
Second Thoughts Nicole Edwards

I’m having a hard time
With what you are implying
I’m wondering what all
I have been denying

I’m having second, third, fourth thoughts
I’m having fifth, sixth, seventh thoughts
About what we oughta do
About where we’re going to

I’m talking in my sleep
I’m choking back my words
Sometimes I feel angry
Sometimes I feel just absurd

I’m having second, third, fourth thoughts
I’m having fifth, sixth, seventh thoughts
About what we oughta do
About where we’re going to

Is love enough to keep us both intact
How can we talk it out without both feeling attacked?

I try to understand
I try to let things go
I try to understand
I try to let things go
I try to work it out
In every way I know still

I’m having second, third, fourth thoughts
I’m having fifth, sixth, seventh thoughts
About what we oughta do
About where we’re going to

I love you
I love you
My love,
What are we going to do?
Track Name: Spit
Spit......... Nicole Edwards

You see a dirty little girl with my mouth full of mud
Left here just to chew my cud
I’m gonna spit at you

I’ve got sand in my teeth and gravel in my voice
It was fed to me, it wasn’t my choice
I’m gonna spit at you

Just one look my stomach drops
The fire rages it doesn’t stop
Just one word is all it takes
And something inside me breaks
It’s not supposed to be this way
How am I supposed to get on with my day
“nothing is ever good enough” you say
I’ll just try to stay out of your way

I’m a snotty-nosed girl with my mouth full of noise
I’ll be out throwing rocks at the boys
I’m gonna spit at you
My dress is clean but it hides
the sticks and stones stuck in my side
I’m gonna spit at you

Just one look my stomach drops
The fire rages it doesn’t stop
Just one word is all it takes
And something inside me breaks
It’s not supposed to be this way
How am I supposed to get on with my day
“nothing is ever good enough” you say
I’ll just try to stay out of your way

I’m a bitter little girl with my mouth full of pride
I fake it ‘til I make it, God knows I’ve tried
I’m gonna spit at you
I’m an angry little girl with my mouth full of smoke
I’m gonna let it all out before I choke
I’m gonna spit at you

Dirty little proud little bitter little angry girl
I’m gonna spit at you
Track Name: Neighbour
Neighbour...... Nicole Edwards

Thanks for letting me drip on your floor
Thanks for the chair when my feet were sore
A smile, some food, a telephone call
What you offer is much more

Neighbour I’ve got a modest confession
I’m relatively self-sufficient
but I still have some lessons to learn
I sleep better at night knowing your door is always open

There’s something about unconditional
There are no ifs or buts when I’m at your door
To listen without judgement
My time with you is well spent
When we’re together we can be ourselves
There is no need to put emotions on the shelf
Sometimes laughter sometimes tears
I’ll keep these moments with me for years

Neighbour I’ve got a modest confession
I’m relatively self-sufficient
but I still have some lessons to learn
I sleep better at night knowing your door is always open

Knowing that you’re near
Knowing that you’re not far
Helps me to feel safe
When things are hard

Neighbour I’ve got a modest confession
I’m relatively self-sufficient
but I still have some lessons to learn
I sleep better at night knowing your door is always open
Track Name: Mon Joe
C't'aujourd'hui l'jour de l'an
Gaie lon la mon joe ma lurette
C't'aujourd'hui l'jour de l'an
Y faut changer d'maitresse
Y faut changer d'maitresse mon Joe
Y faut changer d'maitresse

Echangera qui voudra
Mais moi je garde la mienne

Elle a de jolis yeux doux
Une bouche vermeille

Comme il serait doux
D'avoir un baiser d'elle

Mais encore bien plus doux
De dormir avec elle

Dans un grand lit blanc
Tout pres d'une chandelle
Track Name: History
History...... Nicole Edwards

I’d been doing my own thing
Hadn’t seen you in a while
And I saw you with her
And couldn’t look away
I used to know that look in your eye
I used to know that curve of your smile
Then I saw you touch her in that familiar way

It had to hit me in the face
For me to truly see
That you and me are
History

Something happens to a life
When that chemistry collides
And you let yourself be carried away
How could I have known
That our love would not grow
And I’d be watching you
touch her in that familiar way

It had to hit me in the face
For me to truly see
That you and me are
History

Letting go is not as easy as it seems
Move on I know,
But I was not prepared for this
No I was not prepared

It had to hit me in the face
For me to truly see
That you and me are
History

I could see you loved the attention
I could see you liked to be admired
And it was time for me to just walk away, ‘cause
You and me are
History
Track Name: Elle va me suivre
Elle va me suivre....... Nicole Edwards

Une nuit d’hiver
Un ciel si clair
Et une pleine lune
Elle va me suivre j’en suis sure

Une tempete
dans ma tete
Et une plein lune
Elle va me suivre j’en suis sure

Toute la tristesse bien cachee dans la foret
Peut sortir quand la neige est pure et brillante
Mon coeur est fragile et mon corps est fatigue
Mais je souffle de l’air frais et je peux continuer

Une nuit d’hiver
Un ciel si clair
Et une pleine lune
Elle va me suivre j’en suis sure

Je suis mon nez
J’suis pas sure ou j’irai
J’entends les loups sur l’ile
Et j’ai le gout d’y aller
Je veux etre juste et j’essaie d’etre sage
Je marche et je marche pour tourner la page

Une nuit d’hiver
Un ciel si clair
Et une pleine lune
Elle va me suivre j’en suis sure
Une pleine lune -
Elle va me suivre
Track Name: Lemon Meringue Pie
Lemon Meringue Pie....... Nicole Edwards

I thought I knew you the day that we met
There was something in the air that said: take a chance
I keep taking chances, don’t know what will happen next
J’etais une belle grosse fille la chu ben trop mince

Sweet tart, sweet tart
Like lemon meringue pie
Sweet tart, sweet tart
Sticks to my teeth and tears my taste buds a part

I sure like tasting. What have I learned:
Lick up that hot sauce and you’re gonna get burned
A little garlic & olive oil will go a long way
Don’t know about tomorrow but that’s what I’ll have today

Sweet tart, sweet tart
Like lemon meringue pie
Sweet tart, sweet tart
Sticks to my teeth and tears my taste buds a part

Las hojas del ajo covren los ojos de las hijas y los hijos
Las hojas del ajo covren los ojos de las hijas y los hijos

Sometimes I read the label, Sometimes I don’t care
There are many different versions of fair
Some things I can’t swallow, don’t know what I’m being fed
Sometimes I get indigestion now I’m gonna feed myself

Sweet tart, sweet tart
Some salsa with my lemon merengue pie
Sweet tart, sweet tart
Sticks to my teeth and tears my taste buds a part
Track Name: Birthday (bilingual)
Birthday....... Nicole Edwards

J’ai l’impression que c’est plus fort que moi
Ca doit etre le pringtemps car je pense qu’a toi

I asked you your birthday and your eyes just pierced me
I asked you your birthday and I knew
The full moon of April is making my body tremble
The full moon of April and you

La passion de cette saison est dangereuse
Comme le temps il mouille, mouille mouille
Et juste après c’est sec, sec, sec

I asked you your birthday and your eyes just pierced me
I asked you your birthday and I knew
The full moon of April is making my body tremble
The full moon of April and you

La pleine lune d’avril
La plein lune

J’ai dit: j’ai l’impression que c’est plus fort que moi
Ca doit etre le pringtemps car je pense qu’a toi

I asked you your birthday and your eyes just pierced me
I asked you your birthday and I knew
The full moon of April is making my body tremble
The full moon of April and you
Track Name: Berry Pickin' (bilingual)
Berry Pickin’........ Nicole Edwards

We go berry pickin’ every year, my Ma & me
She says that I’m a good picker, that we’ll wait & see
Some are for the “bread basket” some are for the bowl
And if it starts raining we’ll have to sing that song

Des fraises et des framboises
Du bon vin j’en ai bu
Des frasies et des framboises
Jamais je me suis tant plu

Come time for cleaning my hands & mouth are stained red
and I won’t have had my fill until it’s time for bed
These ones are for freezer and these ones are for jam
These ones are for shortcake, crumble, pie or flan

Des fraises et des framboises
Du bon vin j’en ai bu
Des frasies et des framboises
Jamais je me suis tant plu

Ick c’est bon, c’est delicieux
Goin’ down, goin’ down the red lane

Des fraises et des framboises
Du bon vin j’en ai bu
Des frasies et des framboises
Jamais je me suis tant plu
Des frasies et des framboises
Jamais je me suis tant plu
Track Name: Adventurers
Adventurers...... Nicole Edwards

We are still little girls
In our own ways
We’re still Adventurers
In our day to day

Ojala, how I’ve looked up to you
‘She’s so strong splitting wood with her dad’
Now I see that strength in different ways
I just listen, and look at your face
I just listen and look at your face

We are still little girls
In our own ways
We’re still Adventurers
In our day to day

Myra, how I’ve learned from you
She said: “I don’t care what Leona says,
I will play with whoever I want.
I will play with whoever I want.”

We are still little girls
In our own ways
We’re still Adventurers
In our day to day

It’s funny
Looking at things through adult eyes now
Surely I’ve not grown up yet
There’ll still be more tears to wipe dry
There will still be more tears to wipe dry

We are still little girls
In our own ways
We’re still Adventurers
In our day to day
Track Name: Home to Me
Home to Me........ Nicole Edwards

You used to tell me
You knew I could never be true
Although it was false I spent my days
Trying to make it on up to you

I was afraid of something
Didn’t know what to believe
Now I’m picking up the pieces
I’m coming on home to me
I’m coming on home, coming on home
I’m coming on home to me

Some might ask me
Why did you just not stand your ground
I was looking all over
But my will was no where to be found
Some might ask me
Why did you just not stand tall
I was standing as tall as I could
With my back up against the wall

I was afraid of something
Didn’t know what to believe
Now I’m picking up the pieces
I’m coming on home to me, yes I am
I’m coming on home, coming on home
I’m coming on home to me

You used to tell me
You knew I could never be true
Although it was false I spent my days
Trying to make it on up to you

I was afraid of something
Didn’t know what to believe
Now I’m picking up the pieces
I’m coming on home to me
I’m coming on home, coming on home
I’m coming on home to me
Track Name: Precious Rain
Precious Rain....... Nicole Edwards

I’m hot & bothered
I wipe the sweat from my brow
I’ve given ‘bout all I can give
I could stand to get some now, some

Water, I’m thirsty
I’m drinking up your kind words
Your love is precious rain

I’ve been living in the desert
Not much growth around
But I’m moving onto fertile land
I’m gonna plant a garden with my hands, I need

Water, I’m thirsty
I’m drinking up your kind words
Your love is precious rain

Oh the beauty, the richness, the diversity
Of nurturing those flowers
Of feeling my own power
No more walking in the hot sand with no protection
I’ve been burned way too much
Now it’s time to fill my cup with water

Oh the beauty, the richness, the diversity
Of walking through lush forest
With grace and with boldness
I like living a life that’s full of celebration
I’ll wash in a pure mountain waterfall
and soak in a peaceful pool of

Water, I’m thirsty
I’m drinking up your kind words
Your love is precious rain
Gimme some of that
Water, I’m thirsty
I’m drinking up your kind words
Your love is precious rain

Water, water, water, precious rain
Your love is precious rain
