about

3rd album from Eytan Mirsky. Includes "(I Just Wanna Be) Your Steve McQueen (as heard in the indie film "The Tao of Steve")

FROM "NEW YORK NEWSDAY"

The Artist: Eytan Mirsky
The Disc: "Was It Something I Said?"
Performance: A
Songwriting: A+
Sound Quality: A

Perhaps the best compliment a songwriter can receive is that his or her tunes remain stuck in a listener's skull days after listening. Eytan Mirsky deserves such praise: A few spins of "Was It Something I Said?" will leave you humming "Meet Some Girls," "Sluts!" and "(I Just Wanna Be) Your Steve McQueen" (which Mirsky wrote and sang for last year's "The Tao of Steve" soundtrack; he also penned and performed the film's title track).

Mirsky, who wrote the title song for the 1998 movie "Happiness," sings a little like Evan Dando, but somehow we know he's not as fey in real life.

His take on things (women), however, is as sour as a whole package of Lemonheads. This isn't a bad thing; this is clever power pop - the whole premise of "Payback" is the best offer for services we've ever heard. And the aforementioned "Your Steve McQueen" manages to name all of the late, great one's films. It's a fine tribute on a fine album.

Track Name: When Good Girls Go Bad
WHEN GOOD GIRLS GO BAD

I NEVER THOUGHT THAT I COULD BE SO UPTIGHT;
I’M JUST REACTING TO THE WAY YOU’RE ACTING HERE TONIGHT.

WHEN GOOD GIRLS GO BAD, IT’S HARD TO KNOW WHAT TO DO
WHEN GOOD GIRLS GO BAD, IT’S SO CONFUSING
WHEN GOOD GIRLS GO BAD, IT HITS YOU OUT OF THE BLUE
WHEN GOOD GIRLS , WHEN GOOD GIRLS GO BAD

I’M SORRY IF I’M NOT RESPONDING IN KIND,
BUT WHEN YOU MADE YOUR MOVE, I THOUGHT THAT I WOULD LOSE MY MIND

WHEN GOOD GIRLS GO BAD, IT’S HARD TO KNOW WHAT TO DO
WHEN GOOD GIRLS GO BAD, IT’S SO CONFUSING
WHEN GOOD GIRLS GO BAD, IT HITS YOU OUT OF THE BLUE
WHEN GOOD GIRLS , WHEN GOOD GIRLS GO BAD

I’M USED TO SEEING YOU AS MODEST AND PURE,
SHY AND DEMURE AS CAN BE.
SO WHEN I SEE YOU BUSTING OUT OF YOUR SHELL
IT’S SCARING THE HELL OUT OF ME.

SO HAVE SOME SYMPATHY AT MOMENTS LIKE THIS;
YOU’LL NEVER UNDERSTAND THE POWER WORKING IN YOUR KISS.

WHEN GOOD GIRLS GO BAD, IT’S HARD TO KNOW WHAT TO DO
WHEN GOOD GIRLS GO BAD, IT’S SO CONFUSING
WHEN GOOD GIRLS GO BAD, IT HITS YOU OUT OF THE BLUE
WHEN GOOD GIRLS , WHEN GOOD GIRLS GO BAD
Track Name: Love Is for Girls
LOVE IS FOR GIRLS

WHEN I WAS GROWING UP, MY FRIENDS THEY SAID,
“DON’T LET THOSE FOOLISH THOUGHTS OF LOVE INTO YOUR HEAD”
AND THEY SAID,

“LOVE, LOVE IS FOR GIRLS
LOOK AROUND THE WORLD AND YOU WILL SEE THAT
LOVE, LOVE IS FOR GIRLS
THAT’S THE WAY THAT IT WILL ALWAYS BE CAUSE
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE IS FOR GIRLS.”

SO NOW WHEN I’M ABOUT TO GIVE MY HEART
A VOICE INSIDE ME MAKES ME STOP BEFORE I START
AND IT SAYS,

“LOVE, LOVE IS FOR GIRLS
IT’S NOT THE KIND OF THING A MAN SHOULD DO, NO,
LOVE, LOVE IS FOR GIRLS
LOOK AROUND YOU AND YOU’LL KNOW IT’S TRUE THAT
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE IS FOR GIRLS.”

LOVE IS A SIGN OF WEAKNESS
THAT’S WHAT I’VE ALWAYS HEARD.
LOVE IS A CURSE, LOVE IS AN ILLNESS,
LOVE IS A FOUR-LETTER WORD.

NOW AS MY EMPTY LIFE JUST SPEEDS ALONG
I MAY BE LONELY, BUT AT LEAST I KNOW I’M STRONG
AND I KNOW

“LOVE, LOVE IS FOR GIRLS
LOOK AROUND THE WORLD AND YOU WILL SEE THAT
LOVE, LOVE IS FOR GIRLS
IT’LL TAKE A WAY YOUR DIGNITY CAUSE
LOVE, LOVE LOVE IS FOR GIRLS.”
Track Name: Just Another in a Long, Long Line
JUST ANOTHER IN A LONG LONG LINE

I DON’T KNOW WHY YOU THINK YOU’RE SPECIAL
WHEN YOU ARE JUST LIKE ALL THE REST.
AND YOU CAN TELL ME YOU DON’T WANT ME,
BUT I WILL NEVER BE IMPRESSED.

YOU’RE JUST ANOTHER IN A LONG LONG LINE.
YOU’RE JUST ANOTHER IN A LONG LONG LINE.
YOU’RE JUST ANOTHER IN A LONG LONG LINE.
YOU’RE JUST ANOTHER GIRL WHO WON’T BE MINE.

YOU’RE NOT SOME FANCY SUPERMODEL.
YOU’RE NOT SOME FAMOUS MOVIE STAR.
AND YOU CAN TELL ME YOU DON’T WANT ME,
BUT I CAN TELL YOU WHO YOU ARE.

YOU’RE JUST ANOTHER IN A LONG LONG LINE.
YOU’RE JUST ANOTHER IN A LONG LONG LINE.
YOU’RE JUST ANOTHER IN A LONG LONG LINE.
YOU’RE JUST ANOTHER GIRL WHO WON’T BE MINE.

IF YOU DON’T WANT ME, THAT’S NOTHING NEW.
I’VE BEEN REJECTED BY BETTER GIRLS THAN YOU.

SO DON’T YOU GET SO HIGH AND MIGHTY.
AND DON’T GO ACTING LIKE YOU’RE PROUD.
BECAUSE YOU KNOW WHEN YOU REJECT ME
THAT YOU’RE JUST JOINING IN THE CROWD.

YOU’RE JUST ANOTHER IN A LONG LONG LINE.
YOU’RE JUST ANOTHER IN A LONG LONG LINE.
YOU’RE JUST ANOTHER IN A LONG LONG LINE.
YOU’RE JUST ANOTHER GIRL WHO WON’T BE MINE.
Track Name: Can't Make Up My Mind
CAN’T MAKE UP MY MIND

EVERY TIME I GOTTA MAKE A CHOICE
I DON’T KNOW WHAT TO DO.
IF I START TO SPEAK I LOSE MY VOICE,
FEEL LIKE I’M TORN IN TWO.

I CAN’T MAKE UP MY MIND.
I CAN’T MAKE UP MY MIND.
I CAN’T MAKE UP MY MIND, BUT THAT’S OKAY.
‘CAUSE I MADE UP MY MIND TO MAKE UP MY MIND SOMEDAY.

EVEN WHEN I FIND A GIRL TO DATE,
CAN’T MAKE MYSELF COMMIT.
EVEN WHEN I’M IN A JOB I HATE,
I JUST CAN’T SEEM TO QUIT.

I CAN’T MAKE UP MY MIND.
I CAN’T MAKE UP MY MIND.
I CAN’T MAKE UP MY MIND, BUT THAT’S OKAY.
‘CAUSE I MADE UP MY MIND TO MAKE UP MY MIND…

…SOMEDAY I’LL FINALLY KNOW WHICH TO GO.
BUT ‘TILL THEN I GUESS I’D BETTER TAKE IT SLOW.

THERE IS NO DECISION BIG OR SMALL
THAT WON’T LEAVE ME TRAUMATIZED.
THERE’S NO SITUATION NOW AT ALL
THAT WON’T LEAVE ME PARALYZED.

I CAN’T MAKE UP MY MIND.
I CAN’T MAKE UP MY MIND.
I CAN’T MAKE UP MY MIND, BUT THAT’S OKAY.
‘CAUSE I MADE UP MY MIND TO MAKE UP MY MIND SOMEDAY.
Track Name: Leaving You
LEAVING YOU

YOU SAY THAT YOU ARE LEAVING ME.
THAT’S FUNNY AS A JOKE CAN BE.
I KNOW THAT YOU’RE SLOW, BUT
CAN’T YOU SEE IT’S TRUE?
BABY, I’M THE ONE THAT’S LEAVING YOU.

I KNOW IT DOESN’T MATTER NOW,
BUT LET’S DISCUSS IT ANYHOW.
I’M HERE TO MAKE CLEAR JUST
WHO’S BEEN DUMPED BY WHO.
CLEARLY, I’M THE ONE THAT’S LEAVING YOU –

I KNOW THAT PEOPLE WON’T BELIEVE ME
WHEN THEY HEAR MY SIDE.
THEY’LL ALL THINK THAT MEMORY DECEIVES ME
OUT OF WOUNDED PRIDE.

I DIDN’T WANT A BIG DEBATE.
I ONLY WANT TO SET THINGS STRAIGHT.
YOU’RE FREE AS CAN BE GO
OFF WITH SOMEONE NEW.
I KNOW I’M THE ONE THAT’S LEAVING,
THOUGH YOU SAY IT’S SELF-DECEIVING,
I KNOW I’M THE ONE THAT’S LEAVING YOU.
Track Name: Can I Get Any Lower?
CAN I GET ANY LOWER?

SO I WAKE UP AND SHE’S GONE
AND SHE’S HEADING OFF WITH MY BEST FRIEND.
AND THE PHONE BEGINS TO RING
AND I FIND OUT THAT I’M FIRED AND I LIE THERE THINKING…

CAN I GET ANY LOWER NOW
CAN I GET ANY LOWER NOW
CAUSE I’LL ADMIT I DON’T KNOW HOW
I CAN GET ANY LOWER NOW

SO I TURN THE TV ON
AND I SEE MY STOCKS ARE WORTHLESS NOW.
AND THEY’RE KNOCKING AT MY DOOR
WITH A NOTICE OF EVICTION AND I LIE THERE SCREAMING…

CAN I GET ANY LOWER NOW
CAN I GET ANY LOWER NOW
CAUSE I’LL ADMIT I DON’T KNOW HOW
I CAN GET ANY LOWER NOW

SOMETIMES I THINK THAT I’M AS LOW AS I CAN GET
THEN SOMETHING COMES AND DRAGS ME EVEN LOWER YET.

SO MY DOCTOR DOES SOME TESTS
AND HE SAYS I’VE GOT A WEEK TO LIVE.
AND THEN FINALLY I DIE
AND THE EPITAPH UPON MY HEADSTONE READS FOREVER

CAN I GET ANY LOWER NOW
CAN I GET ANY LOWER NOW
CAUSE I’LL ADMIT I DON’T KNOW HOW
I CAN GET ANY LOWER NOW
Track Name: Do I Have to Say It?
DO I HAVE TO SAY IT?

YOU’RE A BEAUTIFUL GIRL
AS I’M SURE YOU REALIZE.
WHY DO YOU NEED ME TO TELL YOU?
CAN’T YOU SEE IT IN MY EYES?

DO I, DO I, DO I HAVE TO SAY IT?
CAUSE THAT’S JUST NOT THE WAY I WANNA PLAY IT.
THERE MUST BE OTHER METHODS TO CONVEY IT.
DO I, DO I, DO I HAVE TO SAY IT?

I THINK I’M FALLING IN LOVE
AND MY LOVE JUST GROWS AND GROWS.
WHY DO YOU NEED ME TO TELL YOU
WHAT YOUR HEART ALREADY KNOWS?

DO I, DO I, DO I HAVE TO SAY IT?
CAUSE THAT’S JUST NOT THE WAY I WANNA PLAY IT.
THERE MUST BE OTHER METHODS TO CONVEY IT.
DO I, DO I, DO I HAVE TO SAY IT?

I’M THE KIND OF GUY WHO’S MUCH TOO PROUD
TO EXPRESS HIS FEELINGS RIGHT OUT LOUD.

AND NOW YOU SAY YOU WANNA LEAVE,
AND YOU GIVE NO REASON WHY.
AND WHEN I ASK YOU TO TELL ME,
YOU KNOW THIS IS YOUR REPLY:

DO I, DO I, DO I HAVE TO SAY IT?
CAUSE THAT’S JUST NOT THE WAY I WANNA PLAY IT.
THERE MUST BE OTHER METHODS TO CONVEY IT.
DO I, DO I, DO I, DO I,
DO I, DO I, DO I, DO I,
DO I, DO I, DO I, DO I,
DO I, DO I, DO I, DO I.
DO I, DO I, DO I HAVE TO SAY IT?

Track Name: Only Hurting Myself
ONLY HURTING MYSELF

I’M ONLY HURTING MYSELF WITH THE WAY I ACT
I’M ALWAYS MAKING MISTAKES THAT I CAN’T TAKE BACK
AND EVERY THING I SHOULDN’T DO I DO
AND IT’S TRUE
I’M ONLY HURTING MYSELF

I’M ONLY HURTING MYSELF WITH THE WORDS I USE
I TRY TO SILENCE MY TONGUE BUT MY LIPS REFUSE
AND EVERYTHING I SHOULDN’T SAY I SAY

I’M ONLY HURTING MYSELF.

I’M THE CAUSE OF MY OWN FAILURE
I’M THE SOURCE OF MY OWN PAIN
AND I’D LIKE TO MAKE IT STOP BUT THEN
TO WHOM SHOULD I COMPLAIN?

I’M ONLY HURTING MYSELF EVERY CHOICE I MAKE
I’M ONLY HURTING MYSELF EVERY PATH I TAKE
AND EVERY PLACE I SHOULDN’T GO I GO
THOUGH I KNOW
I’M ONLY HURTING MYSELF
YEAH, I’M ONLY HURTING MYSELF.
Track Name: All the Things to Do When She Says No
ALL THE THINGS TO DO WHEN SHE SAYS NO

I HEARD YOU MET A GIRL TODAY
AND NOW YOU WANNA ROLL THE DICE.
BUT IF YOU’RE GONNA MAKE YOUR MOVE
YOU BETTER GET SOME GOOD ADVICE.

YOU WANNA GO AND ASK HER OUT.
WHAT WILL SHE SAY? – IT’S ALL IN DOUBT.
YOU BETTER LEARN BEFORE YOU GO
ALL THE THINGS TO DO WHEN SHE SAYS NO.

JUST TAKE A BREATH AND KEEP YOUR COOL.
DON’T START TO LAUGH AND ACT THE FOOL.
AND WHEN IT HURTS, DON’T LET IT SHOW –
ALL THE THINGS TO DO WHEN SHE SAYS NO.

YOU GOTTA BE PREPARED FOR ANYTHING
IN EVERYTHING YOU DO.
YOU GOTTA BE PREPARED –
DON’T LET REJECTION GET THE BEST OF YOU.

IN ANYTHING YOU DO.
YOU GOTTA BE PREPARED –
DON’T LET REJECTION GET THE BEST OF YOU.

SO SIT RIGHT DOWN AND MAKE A PLAN.
THEN YOU CAN GO AND BE A MAN.
YOUR CONFIDENCE WILL ONLY GROW
WITH ALL THE THINGS TO DO WHEN SHE SAYS
ALL THE THINGS TO DO WHEN SHE SAYS
ALL THE THINGS TO DO WHEN SHE SAYS NO.
Track Name: Sluts!
SLUTS

THEY’RE THE GIRLS WHOSE NAMES ARE SCRIBBLED
ON THE BATHROOM STALLS.
YOU CAN FIND THEIR NUMBERS SCRATCHED INTO
THE PHONE BOOTH WALLS.
EVERYBODY WHISPERS WHEN THEY
PASS THEM IN THE HALLS.
THEY CALL THEM…

SLUTS, SLUTS, SLUTS – EVERYWHERE THEY GO THEY’RE
SLUTS, SLUTS, SLUTS – EVERYBODY KNOWS THAT

THEY’RE THE GIRLS WHO WANT TO DO
THE THINGS YOU WANT TO DO.

DON’T KNOW IF THEY’RE TRUE.
THEN YOU SEE THEM IN THE HALLWAYS
MAKING EYES AT YOU.
YOU KNOW THEY’RE…

SLUTS, SLUTS, SLUTS – EVERYWHERE THEY GO THEY’RE
SLUTS, SLUTS, SLUTS – EVERYBODY KNOWS THAT

EVERYTHING INSIDE YOU SAYS IT’S TIME FOR YOU TO SCORE
NOW YOU WANT TO GRAB A HOLD OF ONE AND DO IT ON THE FLOOR

THEY’RE THE KIND OF GIRLS WHO MAKE YOU
GLAD THAT YOU’RE A MAN.
THAT’S THE WAY IT’S BEEN FOREVER,
SINCE THE WORLD BEGAN.
YOU WANT TO SATISFY THEM, BUT YOU
DON’T KNOW IF YOU CAN.
AND THEY’RE JUST…

SLUTS, SLUTS, SLUTS – EVERYWHERE THEY GO THEY’RE
SLUTS, SLUTS, SLUTS – EVERYBODY KNOWS THAT

WHY THE PEOPLE LABEL THEM I’VE
NEVER UNDERSTOOD.

Track Name: When You're a Human Being
WHEN YOU’RE A HUMAN BEING

WHEN YOU’RE A HUMAN BEING
YOU GOTTA LEARN SO MUCH.
WHEN YOU’RE A HUMAN BEING
IT’S ALWAYS LOOK DON’T TOUCH.
AND WHEN YOU’RE FEELING DIRTY
YOU GOTTA KEEP IT CLEAN,
WHEN YOU’RE A HUMAN BEING.

WHEN YOU’RE A HUMAN BEING
YOU GOTTA KEEP YOUR COOL.
WHEN YOU’RE A HUMAN BEING
LIFE IS JUST ONE BIG RULE.
YOU CAN’T SAY WHAT YOU WANT TO,
YOU CAN’T SAY WHAT YOU MEAN,
WHEN YOU’RE A HUMAN BEING.

MAN CRAWLED OUT OF THE JUNGLE,
PUT ON A JACKET AND TIE,
STARTED CIVILIZATION.
SOMEBODY TELL ME WHY.

WHEN YOU’RE A HUMAN BEING
YOU GIVE UP ALL CONTROL
WHEN YOU’RE A HUMAN BEING
YOU GOTTA SELL YOUR SOUL
YOU’RE JUST A LIVING CREATURE,
THEY TRY TO MAKE YOU A MACHINE,
WHEN YOU’RE A HUMAN BEING.
Track Name: Payback
PAYBACK

I SEE THE WAY HE CHEATS ON YOU;
IT’S GETTING OUT OF HAND.
BUT YOU DON’T DO A THING ABOUT IT –
I DON’T UNDERSTAND.

DON’T YOU WANT A LITTLE PAYBACK –
BABY CAN’T YOU SEE?
YOU CAN GET A LITTLE PAYBACK
SLEEPING WITH A LOSER LIKE ME.

I KNOW THE WAY HE’S TREATING YOU
IS DRIVING YOU INSANE.
BUT YOU CAN GET SOME PAYBACK NOW
AND MAKE HIM FEEL YOUR PAIN.

DON’T YOU WANT A LITTLE PAYBACK –
BABY CAN’T YOU SEE?
YOU CAN GET A LITTLE PAYBACK
SLEEPING WITH A LOSER LIKE ME.

YOU MAY THINK THAT I’M NOTHING –
SLIGHTLY LOWER THAN DIRT.
BUT THAT’S THE THING THAT’S REALLY GONNA
HIT HIM WHERE IT HURTS.

NOW DON’T THINK I’LL ENJOY I ‘CAUSE I
PROMISE THAT’S NOT TRUE.
I’M ONLY TRYING TO DO A FRIENDLY FAVOR
HERE FOR YOU.

DON’T YOU WANT A LITTLE PAYBACK –
BABY CAN’T YOU SEE?
YOU CAN GET A LITTLE PAYBACK
SLEEPING WITH A LOSER LIKE ME.
Track Name: You Don't Know Her
YOU DON’T KNOW HER

YOU CAN TELL ME THAT SHE’S DULL,
THAT SHE LACKS PERSONALITY.
YOU CAN SAY THE JOKES SHE TELLS
AREN’T ALL THEY’RE CRACKED UP TO BE.
YOU’VE MADE YOUR POINT,
BUT CAN’T YOU SEE
THAT YOU DON’T KNOW HER,
YOU DON’T KNOW HER LIKE ME?

YOU CAN TELL ME THAT SHE’S LOUD,
THAT SHE’S VULGAR AND UNREFINED.
YOU CAN CRITICIZE MY TASTE;
YOU CAN SAY THAT I’VE LOST MY MIND.
I’LL HEAR YOU OUT
RESPECTFULLY,
BUT YOU DON’T KNOW HER,
YOU DON’T KNOW HER LIKE ME.

WAIT! –
SOMEONE BLINDED BY LOVE
CANNOT KNOW THE SCORE;
YOU DON’T KNOW HER LIKE I DO,
BUT MAYBE YOU KNOW MORE,
AND THAT’S WHAT FRIENDS ARE,
THAT'S WHAT FRIENDS ARE FOR.

IT COULD BE YOU’VE GOT A POINT,
THAT THERE’S TRUTH IN THE THINGS YOU SAY.
SO I’M TELLING HER GOODBYE –
NEVER LIKED HER MUCH ANYWAY.
YOU HELPED ME LOOK
OBJECTIVELY,
CAUSE YOU DON’T KNOW HER
YOU DON’T KNOW HER LIKE ME.

(I JUST WANNA BE) YOUR STEVE MCQUEEN

I WANNA MAKE A "GREAT ESCAPE,"
AND I'LL CONFIDE:
I WANNA SPEED
JUST LIKE A "BULLITT" TO YOUR SIDE.
I WANNA BE
THE COOLEST MAN YOU'VE EVER SEEN.
I JUST WANNA BE YOUR STEVE MCQUEEN.

WE'LL "GETAWAY" JUST LIKE MCQUEEN

WHEN THEY WERE IN
THAT GROOVY FILM BY PECKINPAH.
I WANNA BE
THE COOLEST MAN YOU'VE EVER SEEN.
I JUST WANNA BE YOUR STEVE MCQUEEN.

CAN'T YOU SEE THE GAME WE'RE GONNA PLAY?

I WANNA BE
THE COOLEST MAN YOU'VE EVER SEEN.
I JUST WANNA BE YOUR STEVE MCQUEEN.
Track Name: Human Nature
HUMAN NATURE

A BILLION YEARS OF EVOLUTION, NOW WE FIND:
A HAIRLESS APE WHO CAN’T CONTROL HIS SAVAGE MIND.

IT’S HUMAN NATURE – IT’S MYSTERIOUS AND WILD
IT’S HUMAN NATURE – IT’S YOUR LONELY INNER CHILD
IT’S HUMAN NATURE – AND IT’S HARD TO UNDERSTAND
IT’S HUMAN NATURE – AND WE’RE UNDER ITS COMMAND

THE POETS AND PHILOSOPHERS CANNOT CONCLUDE
HOW MAN CAN BE SO SMART AND STILL REMAIN SO CRUDE.

IT’S HUMAN NATURE – AND IT’S LURKING DEEP INSIDE
IT’S HUMAN NATURE – AND IT CANNOT BE DENIED
IT’S HUMAN NATURE – IT’S A WEIGHT YOU CAN’T UNLOAD
IT’S HUMAN NATURE – AND IT’S READY TO EXPLODE

YOU’LL NEVER HOLD IT DOWN – IT’S MUCH TOO STRONG
YOU CAN ONLY KEEP IT COVERED FOR SO LONG

RECLAIM THE ANCIENT MEMORIES THAT YOU’VE REPRESSED.
YOU’RE JUST AN ANIMAL, NO BETTER THAN THE REST.

IT’S HUMAN NATURE – IT’S THE CAGE YOU CAN’T ESCAPE
IT’S HUMAN NATURE – IT’S YOUR LONELY INNER APE
IT’S HUMAN NATURE – IT’S THE ROLE IN WHICH WE’RE CAST
IT’S HUMAN NATURE – IT’S YOUR FUTURE AND YOUR PAST
