"Just A Girl" (1995)
I'm just a girl, living in captivity
Your rule of thumb makes me worry some
I'm just a girl, what's my destiny?
What I've succumbed to is making me numb.
Sexism is doing your head in.
"What You Waiting For?" (2004)
Your moment will run out
'Cause of your sex chromosome
I know it's so messed up how our society all thinks (for sure)
Life is short, you're capable (uh huh)
Oh, oh oh.
Because you're not necessarily where you thought you'd be at this age, and it's kind of stressing you out even though it's actually fine.
"Simple Kind Of Life" (2000)
Now all those simple things are simply too complicated for my life
How'd I get so faithful to my freedom?
A selfish kind of life
When all I ever wanted was the simple things
A simple kind of life.
When you want the white picket fence and the 2.5 kids, but also dig sleeping in, inappropriate crushes, and midweek cocktail parties.
"4 In The Morning" (2007)
And all I know is
You got to give me everything
And nothing less 'cause
You know I give you all of me.
Someone's taking a little too long to commit.
Be the one I need
Be the one I trust most
Don't stop inspiring me
Sometimes it's hard to keep on running
We work so much to keep it going
Don't make me want to give up.
When you're angry at your partner and trying so, so hard to feel loved-up, not let down.
