Picture Perfect

(Eric)
I don't know how this is gonna go

But I'm tired of lies and hiding my soul
The focus on the glow, who I am inside
I can't even show her
But everything is better with Liz at my table
Lets me wear her make-up so I can kiss Clark Gable
Love to share her sweaters, cardigan and cable too

I have a small house, no secrets, just a little leather
No regrets, just beaches, me and Liz together
She's my one family - makes me picture perfect
I don't deserve it - well maybe I do
Cause she is my true family. Picture Perfect,
Picture Perfect, Picture Perfect, Picture Perfect

(Amanda)
Picture Perfect
Picture Perfect, Picture Perfect, Picture Perfect

I just buy every photo I adore, mostly to find a love
I live for. Picture Perfect, focus on the surreal
Find the best angle, make the best deal
Open my heart when it's my turn to taste
Come on, jumpstart me, Cupid
Another name with her face

(Liz)
I don't know how this is gonna go
but I'm tired of lies and hiding my soul
the focus on the glow, who I am inside
I can't even show me
But everything is better with Eric on the label
You can wear my make-up, you can kiss Clark Gable
Share my sweaters, cardigan and cable too

(Eric) I have a small house, no secrets, just a little leather
no regrets, just beaches, me and Liz together
She's my one family

(Liz)
I don't deserve it - well maybe I do
Cause she is my true

Picture perfect, welcome to my life
don't look under the surface, cause that's where the dirt is
It's an old same

(Eric) Picture Perfect
Picture Perfect
, Picture Perfect, Picture Perfect

(Liz)
I paint by numbers to extinguish an old flame, by name, by name
Can I open my heart, stop faking this game

another Tom, Dick or Harry, another face with her name

(Eric) Picture Perfect
Picture Perfect, Picture Perfect, Picture Perfect

(Liz)
Picture Perfect
Picture Perfect
, Picture Perfect, Picture Perfect
I don't want you to see me
I just don't want to see me
at all

Catholic Girls (Are Supposed To Love Jesus)
(Music by Sonia Rutstein; Lyrics by Sonia Rutstein and Jody Nusholtz
AINOS Music Publishing, BMI, 2008/2019)

Catholic girls are supposed to love Jesus
Every time we kiss, he definitely sees us
Could be big trouble, even deadly diseases
But Catholic girls are supposed to love Jesus

Catholic girls are supposed to love Jesus
Everybody knows we aim to please, cause
In our time of sin, he totally frees us
But Catholic girls are supposed to love Jesus

Uh-Oh Uh Oh Uh-OH Uh-Oh Uh-Oh
Oh No Oh No Oh No Oh No

Catholic girls should get down on their knees-es
But the thought of us just totally teases
I'm afraid of hell, cause I'm constantly squeezing
myself, my soul, my god I don't need this!

Uh-Oh Uh Oh Uh-OH Uh-Oh Uh-Oh
Oh No Oh No Oh No Oh No
Oh YES!!

She Was Always There
(Music by Sonia Rutstein; Lyrics by Sonia Rutstein and Jody Nusholtz
AINOS Music Publishing, BMI, 2008/2019)

(Eric)
My consolation prize and at the time Daddy loved as much as I
He'd do anything she'd say in his Caveman Irish way
As long as he could bring Dr. Jamison with him
And on New Year's Eve we'd go down to the river in the snow

We'd put one toe in the water, then hot chocolate was in order
and she was there, she was always there

When I was a kid I would watch this like a movie on my lips
And now I remember it like I really lived it and I did

We'd put one toe in the water, then hot chocolate was in order
and she was there, she was always there
We'd put one toe in the water, then hot chocolate was in order
and she was there, she was always there

Drowning The Hours
(Music by Sonia Rutstein; Lyrics by Sonia Rutstein and Jody Nusholtz
AINOS Music Publishing, BMI, 2008/2019)

Everybody, come listen to me
Everybody, come around

Hey everybody, I'm telling stories
Hey everybody, I'm telling lies
I've got secrets I've never mentioned
They're heavy on me, maybe tonight

Hey Sister Mary, I'm speaking frankly
You lived your whole life
Was it a lie?
If Jesus is love and we all need love
Do we become what we can't deny?

Hey everybody, come listen to me
Hey everybody, just come around
The bottle's open with dark red answers
drowning the hours until I'm found

Michelangelo
(Music and lyrics by Sonia Rutstein,
Warner Chappell Publishing)

I'm coming by your house and I won't be quiet
This is the way I play, I don't deny it

Wanna paint the world with
Wanna paint the world with
Wanna paint the world with you

You're as weak as a mountain lion
And as cold as a summer in Saigon
This is the way I play, no excuses
For making love this way

Wanna paint the world with
Wanna paint the world with
Wanna paint the world with you

Call the soul policeman
He'll say to release yourself
Whatever you do now
It's up to you to come out

No I won't apologize when I look into his eyes
I won't apologize - that won't protect you, oh

Michelangelo was
Michelangelo was
Michelangelo was too

I wanna paint the world with
I wanna paint the world with
I wanna paint the world with you

I wanna paint the world
Wanna paint the world
Wanna paint the world with you

Best Part of Kissing You
(Music by Sonia Rutstein; Lyrics by Sonia Rutstein and Jody Nusholtz
AINOS Music Publishing, BMI, 2008/2019)

You bring me laughter and perfect champagne
I give you all I can in rain
This love is wonderful, a mystery, a trust
And I will never get enough

And the best part of kissing you
Is kissing you
And if this is all
Then this is all

I think God is everything we are in all ways
That explains the pleasure and the shame
I can't forget to remember that He is listening
Mary forgive me for this flame

And the best part of kissing you
Is kissing you
And if this is all
Then this is all

How Do You Know
(Music by Sonia Rutstein; Lyrics by Sonia Rutstein and Jody Nusholtz
AINOS Music Publishing, BMI, 2008/2019)

(Harry)
How do you know
That the girl over there
You just stop, you just stare
She's the one for you, just the one for you

And how can you tell
Do you buy what she sells
Is this heaven worth hell
She's the one for you, just the one for you

(Amanda)
She'll sleep so close to you
She'll be the most for you
She'll never let you go
She's just the one you'll know
The one you know
The one you know

(Harry)
When is it real
Does your heart know the feeling
That's sending you reeling
That's right for you, to enlighten you

Then when you're sure
Do you open the door
Although always before
It just didn't last - my classic past

(Amanda and Harry)
She'll toast your toast for you
She'll chase a ghost for you
Stick tighter than crazy glue
Cause she's the on for you
She'll run to you
She'll comfort you

She'll toast your toast for you
She'll chase a ghost for you
Stick tighter than crazy glue
Cause she's the on for you
She'll run to you
She'll comfort you
That's how you'll know

The Paul Thing
(Music by Sonia Rutstein; Lyrics by Sonia Rutstein and Jody Nusholtz
AINOS Music Publishing, BMI, 2008/2019)

(Liz)
Frozen here, I'm on fire crying happy tears
And it's crazy after all these years
Feel like the calendar is lying
Frozen fire, you never really left my heart's desire
Suddenly it all makes sense to me
and we are freely beyond time

(Amanda)
Liz is not invisible. She is not
She is not invisible. Love is not
Love is not invisible to me
Can't believe you're here now finally

(Eric)
Please will somebody tell me, I need an explanation
I did not see it.  I, I don't believe I understand the situation
Was it The Paul Thing
I feel like a Martian in a strange Lesbian Nation
It was The Paul Thing
Weird like watching Fox Life in a Box
Should change the station
Such aggravation

(Harry)
I don't know what they're talking about
So many secrets in such a small house
Love is love, but there's so much doubt
They can't hear me, I'll have to shout
WHAT WAS THE PAUL THING?

(Eric) Ah, The Paul Thing

(Eric and Liz) It was in college
When Liz (I) flipped out and had a very nervous breakdown
They (We) broke up badly and sadly never once resolved the situation

(Harry) So that was The Paul Thing
I'm appalled

 

Everything Is Easy
(Music by Sonia Rutstein; Lyrics by Sonia Rutstein and Jody Nusholtz
AINOS Music Publishing, BMI, 2008/2019)

(Liz)
Everything is easy for you
You get A's without studying
You fall asleep without waiting
Fall in love with girls without fear or hesitation

(Amanda)
I've got a different definition of a loving family
They're a watering can to help you be
Not lumberjacks whacking off the branches of a tree
Not lumberjacks whacking off the branches of a tree
I'm in love with the sun and the sky

(Liz)
I'm scared to death and now I know why

(Amanda)
I'm in love with the mountains and sea

(Liz)
I'd rather lie to myself - you're not listening to me
I'd rather lie to myself - you're not listening to me

(Liz)
Everything is easy for you
You get A's without studying
You fall asleep without waiting
Fall in love with girls without fear or hesitation
I'd rather lie to myself - you're not listening to me

(Liz)
I'd rather lie to myself 

(Liz and Amanda) You're not listening to me

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


(Amanda)
I've got a different definition of a loving family
They're a watering can to help you grow
Not lumberjacks whacking off the branches of a tree
Not lumberjacks whacking off the branches of a tree
