Madeleine Peyroux

I only heard Madeleine Peyroux for the first time this weekend. What a sweet, playful, sultry, seductive voice. Thank you Asem for bringing her to my attention.

Here are the lyrics.

Instead of feeling bad
Be glad you got somewhere to go
Instead of feeling sad
Be happy you're not on your own
Instead of feelin' low
Get high on everything you love
Instead of wastin' time
Feel good 'bout what you're dreaming of

Instead of trying to win something you never understood
Play the game you know eventually you'll love her good

It's silly to pretend to have something you don't own
Just let her be a woman and you'll be her man

Instead of feelin' broke
Buck up and get yourself in the black
Instead of losing hope
Touch up the things that feel out of whack
Instead of being old
Be young because you know you are
Instead of feeling cold
Let sunshine into your heart

Instead of acting crazy chasing things that make you mad
Keep your heart ahead, it'll lead you back to what you have
With every step you are closer to the place you need to be

It's up to you to let her love you sweetly

Instead of feeling bad
Be glad you got someone to love
Instead of feeling sad
Be happy about the stars above
Instead of feeling low
Remember your love never on your own
Instead of feeling sad
Be happy she's there waiting at home
Just right by the telephone
Remember that she's all you own.
