The Love That I Crave - The Blow (though I prefer the earlier version "V-day 1998")

The love that I crave is a polar bear to gore me.
Then I'd know the force with which she adored me.
The love of my dreams is the stuff of my nightmares.
When I wake up in screams that's how I know that I really care.

I must await the sting of the scorpion's tail,
for my impatient advances come to no avail.
Little pinches and pokes, they don't mean a thing
compared to a true arrival and the shock that it brings.

Pick it up, try it, get tired of it, rewind.
Pick it up, try it, get tired of it, rewind.

I'm so tired of being wasted, just chasing the same old thing.
I want to get hit by a big thing, come take me, come change me.



Body Below - Mirah
There's a story i could tell
When the cold wind starts to blow
Like a whisper in the night
From a friend that you know
It says "keep holding on
To my body below
Forsake me not,
Don't ever leave me alone"
There was a time when the sun
Gave it's life to the trees
And the air it smelled sweeter
For the honey and the bees
The ocean rolled salty
And wild and free
The fruit swelled and ripened
And burst with their seeds
But what starts with desire
Can turn into need
The chest gets all tight
Like it's got some disease
What burns in the fire
Just ends up as coals
What floats on the water
Can sink like a stone
Now i want to believe
Every word that you say
I want you to need me
To not go away
Have trust in the nighttime
And faith in the day
To walk on the water
Be never afraid
Can you bear it upon you?
My love has gone under
Above all the stars
Have forgotten to glow
But if you keep holding on to
My body below you
I'll warm you and keep you
From feeling alone
Warm you and keep you from feeling alone


head spins - High Places
When we sat on the floor
I was floored
I was floored
The words you spoke that night
They struck a chord
You struck a chord
And we talked about all kinds of things
Of dinosaurs and seagulls' wings
And where the ocean meets the forest
This is where we sing the chorus:
Ah-ha-ha-ha you're a pretty girl.


What Would the Community Think - Cat Power
My God, what would the community think?
You are so beautiful
You are so beautiful

All the things that people do in winter
They all melt down in summer
Things a mirror should say
On a very hot day

Been crying in my eyes

Vacation, vacation, vacation, vacation, vacation

My God, what would the community think?
You are so beautiful
You are so beautiful



Lovelier Girl - Beach House
Long days of wanting you here
living in fear
shedding a tear for you

Long nights of pasty face tunes
echo in rooms
filling with gloom for me

Letters so hard to mail
feeling like the wind from the sea

Now I step into the line
girl on the
in all the world than you

There's nothing lovelier, girl
in all the world than making love to you

Letters so hard to mail
feeling like the wind from the sea

Lately got to thinking that
how I long to have you here with me



Leif Erikson - Lotte Kestner (Interpol cover)
She says it helps with the lights out
Her rabid glow is like braille to the night.
She swears I'm a slave to the details
But if your life is such a big joke, why should I care?

The clock is set for nine but you know you're gonna make it eight.
So that you two can take some time, teach each other to reciprocate.

She feels that my sentimental side should be held with kid gloves
But she doesn't know that I left my urge in the icebox
She swears I'm just prey to the female,
Well then hook me up and throw me, baby cakes, cuz I like to get hooked.

The clock is set for nine but you know you're gonna make it eight.
All the people that you've loved they're all bound to leave some keepsakes.
I've been swinging all the time, think it's time to learn your way.
I picture you and me together in the jungle it would be ok.

I'll bring you when my lifeboat sails through the night
That is supposing that you don't sleep tonight

It's like learning a new a language
Helps me catch up on my mime
If you don't bring up those lonely parts
This could be a good time
It's like learning a new language

You come here to me
We'll collect those lonely parts and set them down
You come here to me

She says brief things, her love's a pony
My love's subliminal

She says brief things, her love's a pony
My love's subliminal



Love, Love, Love - The Organ (not explicitly queer lyrics, but from a queer female band)

see the people sitting over there
i want to kiss and touch them everywhere
oh no, not because i really care
oh god, no , no, i wouldn't dare

love, love
i'd really like a small part of it
oh love
i cant believe the word love

he's had love in damp alleys
in city hall, in city libraries
we smoked it underneath the playground
slide
why did i try ?

oh love
we cry so very much about it
oh love
obsessing in the night about it
oh love
i'd really like a small part of it
oh love, love , love

okay , that's enough of that
okay, okay now that's enough of that
i'm getting very tired of the facts
i'm getting very tired of the fact that

i must be right
oh, it must be right
that's why i,m cold and alone again
that's why i'm all on my own again
that's why i'm throwing things around my
home again
that's why
i'm looking for love



Yuri-G - PJ Harvey
Hey there Luna
I'd like to tell ya
How sad am I
So love sick I could die

Needing water
My neck's stiff, my head hurts
Been looking up all night
Been looking at the Moon, she's so bright

She's so white
She's so clean
I'm telling you
She's everything
I'd give it all
My sorry eyes
Give just everything
She's got me so mesmerized

Yeah I wish I was Yuri-G
It's just the things that she does to me
Yeah I wish I was Yuri-G
Give back my memory

Told by a doctor,
'You make her figure
Needles stick in her
She'll be your Luna'

I stuck them in real clean
I stuck them in a mile
I drew her down on me
I drew her with a smile
I'd give it all you see
I'd give my sorry eyes
I'd give just everything
She's got me so mesmerized

Yeah I wish I was Yuri-G
It's just the things that she does to me
Yeah I thought I was Yuri-G
Give back my memory

I stuck them in a mile
I stuck them in real clean
I stuck them in a mile
I drew her down on me
I drew her with a smile
I'd give it all you see
I'd give my sorry eyes
I'd give just everything
She's got me so mesmerized

Yeah I wish I was Yuri-G
It's just the things that she does to me
Yeah I thought I was Yuri-G
Give back my memory

Yeah I wish I was Yuri-G
I let her walk all over me
Yeah I thought I was Yuri-G
Give back my memory


Not What You Want - Cat Power
I am not what you want
There's no telling how long
I am not what you want
There's no telling how long I'll be here
I am not what you want X3
There's no telling how long
I've checked
I've checked to find
I've checked
I've checked to find
I am not for you one
There's no telling how long
Go figure that out
Figure that out
I am not what you want X6
I've checked
I've checked to find
I am not what you want X5
There's no telling how long I'll be here
I am not what you want
There's no eyes in your own head
I'll check
I'll check tonight
I am not what you want
There's no telling how long I'll be here
I am not what you want
There's no eyes in your head
In your head
At least I cannot see them
In your head
I'm not what you want
I'll get
Nothing X3
Tonight
I'm not what you want
There's no telling how long I'll be here
Be here
At least I cannot see them



Anthems for a Seventeen Year Old Girl - Broken Social Scene
Used to be the one of the rotten ones
And I liked you for that
Now you're all gone, got your make-up on
And you're not coming back

Bleachin' your teeth, smiling flash
Talking trash, under your breath
Bleachin' your teeth, smiling flash
Talking trash, under my window

Park that car, drop that phone,
Sleep on the floor, dream about me

Used to be the one of the rotten ones
And I liked you for that
Now you're all gone, got your make-up on
And you're not coming back



Goodbye - Asobi Seksu
Once I had a girlfriend
she made my heart just want to die
she just couldn't stay inside
she'll make you open up your eyes until you've
cried yourself a river
throw your hands up in the sky
to be by her side
I'll do anything if just to make her stay
make her stay
to make her stay
stay...count the time until you're mine
will they ever know
we can't deny the world outside just leaves us cold
count the time until you're mine
they'll never know
Oh, we'll compromise
the world outside just leaves us cold
Once she gave a reason
but the end just made me cry
a red sunrise outside
she made me open up my eyes until I
finally looked around me
when I heard her soft reply
I can't pretend to try
I'll do anything if just to make her stay
make her stay
to make her stay
stay



Slow Burn Treason - Holly Miranda (demo version is best)
Wake up and you're next to nothing
But the weight of the world is on your side
Most days you don't even notice
But that's a lie

All you want is her eyes on you
All you need is one hand deep inside
Outside the wind she's screaming
The windows shake and you cry

But who's gonna feel you
And who's gonna need you

And in between there's always someone
They don't get you but you reach and smile
And maybe this slow burn treason
Is better than the crash of a quick rise

So brave the cold and close your mouth
I'll bite your tongue if you'll bite mine
Yeah lay your head on my legs babe
Everything is fine except the time

But who's gonna feel you
And who's gonna need you
Who's gonna feel you
Who's gonna need you
Who's gonna want you
Who's gonna hold you
Who's gonna love you
Who's gonna tease you
Who

Wake up and you're next to nothing
But the weight of the world is on your side
And most days you don't even notice
But that's a lie


Honey or Tar - CocoRosie
I undressed you with my eyes I have
Maybe even raped you
In a dark and eerie corner of my mind
I tucked you there
And touched you in a dream last night
Pushed you aside when you entered
My thoughts at the wrong time

I have sat up upon your lap and
Saddled my thighs around your hips like ropes
I rode you on a chair and in the shower
And all the while I clung heavy to your back
My desire deeply harnessed in your spine

While I squeezed you like a tree trunk
You may have been one
Sexless and comfort in your mind
Even barer than a child's
I'm riding recklessly through a thick and humid
Jungle growing anxious with the deep and primal
Yearning that stirs
Deeply pulsing up toward the surface
Like sap rising or honey or tar
