Meredith Brooks: Bitch

I hate the world today
You're so good to me
I know but I can't change
Tried to tell you
But you look at me like maybe
I'm an angel underneath
Innocent and sweet
Yesterday I cried
Must have been relieved to see
The softer side
I can understand how you'd be so confused
I don't envy you
I'm a little bit of everything
All rolled into one

I'm a bitch, I'm a lover
I'm a child, I'm a mother
I'm a sinner, I'm a saint
I do not feel ashamed
I'm your hell, I'm your dream
I'm nothing in between
You know you wouldn't want it any other way

So take me as I am
This may mean
You'll have to be a stronger man
Rest assured that
When I start to make you nervous
And I'm going to extremes
Tomorrow I will change
And today won't mean a thing


Just when you think, you got me figured out
The season's already changing
I think it's cool, you do what you do
And don't try to save me


I'm a bitch, I'm a tease
I'm a goddess on my knees
When you hurt, when you suffer
I'm your angel undercover
I've been numb, I'm revived
Can't say I'm not alive
You know I wouldn't want it any other way


Wikipedia: Bitch (Meredith Brooks song)
"Bitch", also known by its censored title, "Nothing In Between", and later in re-released as "Bitch (Nothing In Between)", is a song recorded by American artist Meredith Brooks and co-written with Shelly Peiken. It was released in May 1997, as the lead single from her debut album Blurring the Edges.

Popular misconception
"Bitch" has frequently been misattributed to fellow singer-songwriter Alanis Morissette, a misconception that has existed since the song's release. The close musical similarities between Morissette's work at the time in comparison with "Bitch" has been commented upon by publications such as Allmusic, Billboard, Entertainment Weekly,[8] and the Los Angeles Times, with music critic Stephen Thomas Erlewine saying that Brooks sounded like a "clone". Record producer Geza X deliberately sought a hit single that sounded like Morissette's songs, yet he was fired soon afterward even when "Bitch" achieved major success, due to conflicts with Brooks' record label.

This is probably one of my top ten songs - right up there with I am Woman by Helen Ready. It's powerful and honest and strong.
