Track Name: Needle In The Hay (Elliott Smith Cover)
NEEDLE IN THE HAY - by Elliott Smith

Your hand on his arm
Hay stack charm around your neck
Strung out and thin
He's calling some friend trying to cash some check
He's acting dumb
That's what you've come to expect

Needle in the hay
Needle in the hay
Needle in the hay
Needle in the hay

He's wearing your clothes
Head down to toes he's a reaction to you
You say you know what he did
But you idiot kid
You don't have a clue
Sometimes they just get caught in the eye
You're pulling him through

Needle in the hay
Needle in the hay
Needle in the hay
Needle in the hay

Now on the bus
Nearly touching this dirty retreat
Falling out 6th and Powell a dead sweat in my teeth
Gonna walk walk walk
Four more blocks plus one in my brain
Down downstairs to the man
He's gonna make it all ok

I can beat myself
I can't be myself
And I don't want to talk
I'm taking the cure so I can be quiet
Whenever I want
So leave me alone
You ought to be proud that I'm getting good marks

Needle in the hay
Needle in the hay
Needle in the hay
Needle in the hay
Track Name: Wonder Woman (Ramona Silver Cover)
WONDER WOMAN - by Ramona Silver from her debut album "You & Me & Hell." (© 1995 Tootsie Music ASCAP.)

You might think I'm a freak, staring the way I do at your goods.
I just can't get over, perfection is covered from your head to your hooves.  
I lean on charm and hope the ride will take me to the truth.
Then I wake to scars and all the things that keep me writing my book...
Still I want…

I want Wonder Woman,
Each and every working day!
I forget Wonder Woman is hiding.

My mothers a rock girl singing her songs with the strength of her past...
And she eases my load whenever I need and never keeps track.
She could be…

She could be Wonder Woman,
If she chose to feel that way!
I wonder why Wonder Woman is hiding...

She could be...
We could be...
I'm so tired of all I'm supposed to be!

You could be Wonder Woman, if you chose to feel that way.
I forget Wonder Woman is hiding.
Oh, I could be Wonder Woman, if I chose to feel that way.
It's a wonder that Wonder Woman is hiding...

Track Name: Tour Trauma (Ramona Silver Cover)
TOUR TRAUMA - by Ramona Silver from her debut album "You & Me & Hell." (© 1995 Tootsie Music ASCAP.)

I visit your garden, to be where you’ve been.
I hear where you’ve watered. I play and pretend…
When I’m alone.
When I’m alone.

Do you think of hearing my voice in your head?
Imagine I’m lying right there in your bed…
When you’re alone.
When you’re alone.

You have the feelings I do… every once in a while.
But you paint the ceilings light blue, so I can see for miles…
Why the truth comes in lies.
When I’m alone.
(When you’re alone!)

Sandy man, you little jam. You’re the ram that makes me what I am.
Love your tots, and tell the truth. Truth in knots ill give to you.
When you’re alone.
When you’re alone.

You have the feelings I want, even when things aren’t right.
You color my glasses dark blue, turning the day to night…
So that we can play amongst the stars!

When we’re alone.
(When we’re alone!)
When we’re alone.
(When we’re alone!)
