Chances Are – Vonda Shepard

Somewhere on your road tonight Seems I always end up driving by Ever since I’ve known you It just seems you’re on my way All the rules of logic don’t apply I long to see you in the night Be with you ’til morning light I remember clearly how you looked The night we met […]

Every Breath You Take – Vonda Shepard

Every breath you take Every move you make Every bond you break Every step you take I’ll be watching you Every single day Every word you say Every game you play Every night you stay I’ll be watching you O can’t you see You belong to me How my poor heart aches with every step […]

Crying – Vonda Shepard

I was alright for awhile I could smile for awhile But I saw you last night You held my hand so tight As you stopped to say “;hello”; Oh you wished me well You couldn’t tell that I’d been Crying over you Crying over you When you said, “;so long”; Left me standing all alone […]

Let It Snow – Vonda Shepard

Oh, the weather outside is frightful, But the fire is so delightful, And since we’ve no place to go, Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow! It doesn’t show signs of stopping, And I’ve brought some corn for popping; The lights are turned way down low, Let it snow, let it snow, let […]

For Once In My Life – Vonda Shepard

For once in my life I have someone who needs me Someone I’ve needed so long For once unafraid I can go where life leads me And somehow I know I’ll be strong For once I can touch What my heart used to dream of Long before I knew Someone warm like you Could make […]

Ask The Lonely – Vonda Shepard

Just ask the lonely When you feel That you can make it all alone Remember no one is big enough To go it all alone Just ask the lonely They know the hurting pain Of losing the love You can never regain Just ask the lonely The young and foolish Who laugh at love and […]

Neighborhood – Vonda Shepard

Here’s a photo I’ve been looking for It’s a picture of the boy next door And I loved him more than words can say Never knew it ’til he moved away Faded pictures in my scrapbook Just thought I’d take one more look And recall when we were all In the neighborhood Yeah, yeah, yeah, […]

Clear – Vonda Shepard

If I don’t take you seriously If I can laugh at your randomness If I can have a little fun baby If I can only feel my bliss If I can ignore my conscience And reject my angry guide If I can take my soul out of hiding And get it right back To reviving […]

Confetti – Vonda Shepard

Skinny little brats Walking down Avenue A Dangling their cigarettes Their Independence Day Tears like filigrees Wear them on their sleeves Nobody’s main squeeze It’s thirty-five degrees Poetry of ordinary life is what I live for They just wanna be seen They just wanna be heard…said My words are like Confetti And you never pick […]

The End Of The World – Vonda Shepard

Why does the sun go on shining? Why does the sea rush to shore Don’t they know it’s the end of the world ‘Cause you don’t love me any more? Why do the birds go on singing? Why do the stars glow above? Don’t they know it’s the end of the world? It ended when […]

I Shy Away – Vonda Shepard

Since I met you, I’ve missed you all my life What I don’t know won’t hurt me baby Since I’ve known you, I can recall the old times Wasn’t that your face in my old photographs Didn’t we laugh and talk for hours baby Really wanna see you but baby (Chorus) I shy away from […]

Will You Marry Me? – Vonda Shepard

Lyrics by Vonda Shepard I guess you sunk in Oh yeah you made it in Now I’m fumbling somewhere deep within Will I raise my glass Or will you kick my ass? Will we fall down laughing, laughing? I know love is pain I know your life’s insane I want you anyway I’ll probably complain […]

A New Marilyn – Vonda Shepard

music by Vonda Shepard Got one now with a Catholic name A little less righteous, she ain’t quite the same Walkin’ the streets under the media moon Silvery screen paints her sultry tune She wears her lipstick outside of the lines Picture on the cover of the New York Times The mole on her cheek […]

This Is Crazy Now – Vonda Shepard

Blown away like the wind, restless again My only friend has gone away Washed like the tide but I’m still alive I’m gonna drive all night long This is crazy now, I’ll fill the space somehow If there were someway to get through This is crazy now, I’ll fill the space somehow I can’t walk […]

A Lucky Life – Vonda Shepard

We walk a crooked line ’cause there is a counter life in your jailed eyes You’re never a victim of your generation and you shine on me like a holy light All of the miracles and conversations rain on me tonight We’ve got a one track mind, true as a railroad, always on time I […]
