"Lately" as written by and Kris Roe....
Lately I've been feeling
A little bit neglected.
When it comes to your ex-boyfriends,
Well, I guess I'm overprotective.
But it's nothing personal
I just wanted you to tell me that you
Care.

Lately I've been thinking 'bout
Stickin' my hand in a toaster.
I never asked to take a ride
On this emotional roller-coaster.
It's you that I want,
And lately it feels like you're not there.

Lately I've been contemplating
Jumping in the ocean.
Sometimes even Spock would show
A little more emotion!
Do you still love me now
As much as you loved me yesterday?

I try to let it out
I bitch, cry, moan, whine, scream and
Shout today,
But the wall wouldn't listen to me!
Why wouldn't it listen to me?
I'm sick of always cryin'
I don't want to be sick of trying,
But you've gotta want me too.

Lately I've been hoping for
A little bit of affection.
Sometimes I wish that you had came
With your own set of directions.
I guess it's not that easy,
But I hope that you still love me anyway.

Lately I've been thinkin' 'bout
Takin' a vow of silence,
I've never seen a monk result
In any acts of violence.
Or, maybe I'll just cry
And hope you come around again today.

I try to let it out
I bitch, cry, moan, whine, scream and
Shout today,
But the wall wouldn't listen to me!
Why wouldn't it listen to me?
I'm sick of always cryin'
I don't want to be sick of trying,
But you've gotta want me too.

    General Commentthis song strongly reminds me of a relationship that ended a few months ago. "i bitch, cry, moan, whine, scream, and shout" and "or maybe ill just cry and hope you come around again today" and "sometimes even spock would show a little more emotion" anyhoo.. those are some lines that really reminded me of my last boyfriend. anyhoo, its a great song but my fav. on that album is still "are we there yet?"
    love and peace

    General Commentthis song makes me think of my first love (just b4 we broke up). This song as well as all of the songs that Kris has written conveys feelings that I always thought to be unable to be put into words

    General Commentthis song reminds me of someone who wants the all attention of his gf and is kinda confused as to whether she wants to be w/ him or not. hehe and yes its what bopton said. somewhat of a 'first love' situation. ONe of my fave songs.
