Alanis Morisette


Guardian

You, you who has smiled when you’re in pain
You who has soldiered through the profane
They were distracted and shut down

So why, why would you talk to me at all
Such words were dishonorable and in vain
Their promise as solid as a fog

And where was your watchman then

I’ll be your keeper for life as your guardian
I’ll be your warrior of care your first warden
I’ll be your angel on call, I’ll be on demand
The greatest honor of all, as your guardian

You, you in the chaos feigning sane
You who has pushed beyond what’s humane
Them as the ghostly tumbleweed

And where was your watchman then

I’ll be your keeper for life as your guardian
I’ll be your warrior of care your first warden
I’ll be your angel on call, I’ll be on demand
The greatest honor of all, as your guardian

Now no more smiling mid crestfall
No more managing unmanageables
No more holding still in the hailstorm

Now enter your watchwoman

I’ll be your keeper for life as your guardian
I’ll be your warrior of care your first warden
I’ll be your angel on call, I’ll be on demand
The greatest honor of all, as your guardian


You Learn

I recommend getting your heart trampled on to anyone

I recommend walking around naked in your living room

Swallow it down (what a jagged little pill)

It feels so good (swimming in your stomach)

Wait until the dust settles

You live you learn

You love you learn

You cry you learn

You lose you learn


You bleed you learn 

You scream you learn 

I recommend biting off more then you can chew to anyone

I certainly do

I recommend sticking your foot in your mouth at any time 

Feel free

Throw it down (the caution blocks you from the wind) 

Hold it up (to the rays)

You wait and see when the smoke clears

You live you learn

You love you learn 

You cry you learn

You lose you learn 

You bleed you learn

You scream you learn

Wear it out (the way a three-year-old would do) 

Melt it down (you\'re gonna have to eventually anyway) 

The fire trucks are coming up around the bend

You live you learn

You love you learn 

You cry you learn

You lose you learn

You bleed you learn 

You scream you learn 

You grieve you learn 

You choke you learn

You laugh you learn

You choose you learn

You pray you learn

You ask you learn

You live you learn
