Kate Nash - Kiss That Grrrl

That girl is giving you the eye 
And I, and I, and I don’t like it
How she makes you laugh so much,

How when you’re talking, that you touch, 
She’s instantly more pretty and more interesting than me, 
She is thinking before she speaks, 
She is not all red and angry 
I bet she doesn’t like to eat, 
I bet her feet don’t even stink
I know your eyes are just for me, but 

Kiss that grrrl and I will shrink up 
And I will die and I will think up 
A thousand ways that I can hurt you
And you will never touch my hand
Kiss that grrrl and I will shrink up 
And I will die and I will think up 
A thousand ways that I can hurt you 
And you will never touch my hand

Tonight we have not got on well
I know I have given you hell
I wish we should have stayed at home 
'Cause now I'm standing on my own 
And you are having a nice time 
With a girl I really don’t like 
I know your eyes are just for me, but 

Kiss that grrrl and I will shrink up 
And I will die and I will think up 
A thousand ways that I can hurt you
And you will never touch my hand
Kiss that grrrl and I will shrink up 
And I will die and I will think up 
A thousand ways that I can hurt you 
And you will never touch my hand

Baby, please don’t break my heart 
'Cause you are the only one I love 
I’ll be by your side till the very end 
'Cause you're my only friend

Kiss that grrrl and I will shrink up 
And I will die and I will think up 
A thousand ways that I can hurt you
And you will never touch my hand
Kiss that grrrl and I will shrink up 
And I will die and I will think up 
A thousand ways that I can hurt you 
And you will never touch my hand



Kate Nash - Early Christmas Present

How could you let her touch you in a place you didn’t want touched?
How could you let her get so close to you
That she could kiss your neck and kiss it gently
And kiss it gently, and kiss it gently?

How could you take her number from her when you met her in that bar?
How could you offer her a drink, and then the front seat of your car?
And kiss her gently, and kiss her gently, and kiss her hard?

How could you lie to me right to my face?
How could your best friend’s, ex-girlfriend’s younger sister’s mate
Know before I did? Before I did, before I did?

How could you string me on for so long for just over 11 months?
How could I be so stupid and so blind?
You know I think I had a hunch about this anyway
About this whole thing, about this girl

I thought that it was just a phase, you were so distant and so cold
I thought that it was just your age, and the fear of getting old
You acted different, you were so different, you were impatient

And you lied to me right to my face
And your best friend’s, ex-girlfriend’s younger sister’s mate
Knew before I did, before I did, before I did

'Cause if you run into the eye of the storm
Take it ‘round the back, you better hit the floor
'Cause screaming no, I can't take it, I can't take it
I can’t take it anymore ‘til your eyes and your mouth is sore

Doesn’t help anyone, doesn’t do any good
But you’d do something else if you only could
And I wish I could grow up, wish I could be well behaved
But every time I look you in the eye, I send you to the grave

And that pretty, pretty girl, with her nice, sweet lips
With your eyes on her chest, and your hands on her hips
This itch, this burn, this pain, this draining feeling
Turns out needs a cream to help it go away
So thanks for leaving me the gift you gave

And no, I can’t take it, I can’t take it, I can’t take it anymore
I can’t take it, I can’t take it, I can’t take it anymore
I can’t take it, I can’t take it, I can’t take it anymore
I can’t take it, I can’t take it, I can’t take it anymore
I can’t take it, I can’t take it, I can’t take it anymore



Kate Nash - Later On

That boy behind the curtain was no one that I trusted 
I didn’t like his face, I didn’t think he was cute 
But I kissed him just to get some information 
I used my body and his desperation 

We jumped up out of there, yeah, we were chased 
And I’m telling you that that time was a scary place 
But I would do it all again the same, yeah
I would do it all again the same 

And later on, I’ll cry my stupid eyes out 
Later on, I’m crying like a baby 
And yeah, baby, don’t get so disappointed 
I am not what you anticipated 
Later on, I’ll cry my stupid eyes out 
Later on, I’m crying like a baby 
And yeah, baby, don’t get so disappointed 
I am not what you anticipated 

I wish that I did not make the decisions 
I’ll never get back into that 
I ripped my hair out of my package ‘cause I felt bad 
I let him down, I didn’t mean to make him sad 

And later on, I’ll cry my stupid eyes out 
Later on, I’m crying like a baby 
And yeah, baby, don’t get so disappointed 
I am not what you anticipated 
Later on, I’ll cry my stupid eyes out 
Later on, I’m crying like a baby 
And yeah, baby, don’t get so disappointed 
I am not what you anticipated



Kate Nash - 3AM

How did it get to 3 AM?
I wish that I could call
But I know that you’re probably asleep
Do I really have to get used to being alone again?
I wish that you were here
You must know that you are my best friend
Do you really have to dream?
I’m perfectly happy here
In reality, I’m wide awake
I think about the things
That I will do tomorrow and I’m trapped
Things are dark outside and everybody else is fast asleep
My hand is glued to the remote
The TV has already said
"Tonight I’m frozen in my sleep"
I want to move but I’m afraid
I suffer with anxiety
I don’t want to be alone!
You see, I want to be with

You
You ooooh ooh ooh ooh ooh
Oooh ooh ooh ooh ooh
You oooh ooh
Yeah baby

You are the one I think of
All the night
And all the night it feels so right
I miss your arms
The way you kiss me
The way you pull me in so tight
It makes me sick but then we’d fight
But I want you so bad tonight
Yeah baby
You are the one I think of
All the night
And all the night it feels so right
I miss your arms
The way you kiss me
The way you pull me in so tight
It makes me sick but then we’d fight
But I want you so bad tonight

I want to change my future one
My desires change my room
Passions are trivially spent
Obviously it hurts me to believe
And in my fatal judgement
Cut off my electricity
And now I’m really stuffed
I’ll make an effort, take a left
I’ll leave the the house to stop me crying
And if you cry, you’re taken out
There won’t be room for mistakes here
I’m afraid this is all or nothing
And I haven’t got a hope
At least I thought I had a friend
Turns out I was just a joke
I’m holding onto what I’ve got
I’m tryna get just what I want
And I’ll pick the pieces up tomorrow
