5. The Cure

INTRODUCTION:
I grew up listening to rock and roll (thanks to my big brother). So as a little girl with a piano, I was never about the “coffeehouse” stereotype of slow ballads and a lullaby voice. I LOVE playing The Cure live and watching people’s reactions as they realize that that big voice is coming out of a 5’1” chick with a keyboard she bought on Craig’s list.

LYRICS:

Verse 1: I’m always angry, but I’m still funny. 
I love to fight, but I hate not winning. 
I’m everything you’re not, 
But you still want what I got, whoa. 

CHORUS: I’m the illness and the cure, 
I’m the lost and the search. 
I’ll make you better I’ll make you worse, 
I’m way too much to handle. 
But you can’t get enough, of me. 

Verse 2: I know that I’ve got this if you’re trying to break me. 
You won’t see me blink, no, you can’t shake me. 
I don’t know what you want from me, 
But you’re never gonna see me bleed. 

Verse 3: I don’t like to listen but I do what I have to, 
I’ve got nothing to prove. 
Ooh darling, you’ll be glad I came, 
And when I’m gone you won’t be the same. 

CHORUS: I’m the illness and the cure,  
I’m the lost and the search.  
I’ll make you better I’ll make you worse,  
I’m way too much to handle.  
But you can’t get enough, of me. 

Bridge: You got nothing, you got nothing, you got nothing to break me. 
You got nothing, you got nothing, you got nothing, you can’t break me. 
Baby, baby, please. 

CHORUS: I’m the illness and the cure,  
I’m the lost and the search.  
I’ll make you better I’ll make you worse,  
I’m way too much to handle.  
But you can’t get enough, of me.
