Pre-trial documents suggest music superstar Taylor Swift is determined to reveal in graphic detail a nasty secret that she kept hidden for years until it was released to the world by the same man she accuses of sexual assault. “She will also testify that she had no reason or motive to accuse Mueller of inappropriately touching her,” the motion says.

Julia Ecklar – Threes lyrics

Deep into the stony hills
Miles from town or hold
A troop of guards comes riding
With a lady and her gold
She rides bemused among them
Shrouded in her cloak of fur
Companioned by a maiden
And a toothless sated cur

Three things see not end
A flower blighted ere it bloom
A message that miscarries
And a journey that is doomed

One among the guardsmen
Has a shifting restless eye
And as they ride he scans the hills
That rise against the skies
He wears both sword and jewels
Worth more than he could afford
And hidden in his baggage
Is a heavy secret horde

Of three things be wary of
A feather on a cat
The shepherd eating mutton
And the guardsman that is fat

Little does the lady care
What all the guardsmen know
That bandits ambush caravans
That on these trade roads go
In spite of tricks and clever traps
And all that men can do
The brigands seem to always sense
Which trains are false or true

Three things are most perilous
The shape that walks behind
The ice that will not hold you
And the spy you cannot find

From ambush bandits screaming
Charge the pack train and it’s prize
And all but four within the trade
Are taken by surprise
And all but four are cut down
As a woodsman fells a log
The guardsmen and the lady
And the maiden and the dog

Three things hold a secret
Lady riding in a dream
The dog that sounds no warning
And the maiden who does not scream

Then off the lady pulls her cloak
And armor she is clad
Her sword is out and ready and
Her eyes are fierce and glad
The maiden makes a gesture and
The dog’s a cur no more
A wolf, swordmaiden and sorceress
Now face the bandit horde

Three things never anger
Or you will not live for long
A wolf with cubs
A man with power
And a women’s sense of wrong

The lady and her sister
By a single trader lone
Were hired out to try to lay
A trap all of their own
And no one knew their plan except
The two who rode that day
For what you do not know
You cannot ever give away

Three things is it’s better part
That only two should know
For treasure hides who shares your bed
And how to catch your foe

The bandits growl a challenge
And the lady only grins
The sorceress bows mockingly
And them the fight begins
When it ends there’s only four
Left standing from the horde
The witch the wolf the traitor
And the women with the sword

Three things never trust in
A maiden sworn is pure
The vows a kings has given
And the ambush that is sure

They strip the trader naked
And then whip him on his way
And to the barren hill sides like
The folk he used to slay
And what of all the maidens
That this bandit raped and slew
So as revenge the sorceress
Makes him a women too

Three things trust above all else
The horse on which you ride
The beast that guards your sleeping
And your shield mate at your side

Brika – I Just Wanna Be Single lyrics

A group of us were
On a balcony
In Colombia
Foreign country
Drinks were flowing
And I was in between

A couple fighting
And that boy
Started to get
A little close
I like the game
But ultimately
I’d leave

Cause I just want to be single

Cause I just want to be single

The matrix of the
City streets
Fermented grain
And ocean breeze
Got tempted can’t regret that
I said no

I don’t get into problems
Boys come the more I say go
You leave then
I like the game

But I Just want to be single
Cause I just want to be single
But I love that I’m single
Cause I don’t need that issue

I just want to be single
Cause I just want to be single
But I love that I’m single
Cause I don’t need that issue

Janet Arnaiz – Hello lyrics

[Verse 1]
Hello kamusta ka

Naalala kong lagi

[Chorus]

Saan man magpunta
Iniisip Kita
Bawat oras kay ligaya

Kung aking nadarama

Hello, Sana ay nandito ka hello
Nais kong kasama ka hello

Makausap Ka
Panaginip kong lagi
Anuman ang tinig mo
Ang siyang hinihintay
Dahil saglit ay mahiming

Hello, Sana ay nandito ka hello
Nais kong kasama ka hello
Miss Kita
Sana’y Laging Kausap Ka
Hello, Sana ay nandito ka hello
Nais kong kasama ka hello

Legitimate Front – She lyrics

Witchy woman, lady always knows the way
Feel her magic, only hope is stay away
You’ll feel like you’ve got the control
But she’s run away with your soul
She’s the siren who’ll dash you upon the cape

Wake up in a sweat, it’s a dream
And not something that you want to think about
You realize it’s not what it seems

She’s in love with me, but I never got a say
Someone save me please from her crazy game
She’s in love with me, and I’m scared she’s here to stay

Strangely peaceful, yet you know things go astray
Restless spirit, not a single card to play
She’ll get all up inside your head
While she thinks about another’s bed
She’s the nightmare the Devil sent your way

You realize it’s not what it seems
And not something that you want to think about
Wake up in a sweat, it’s a dream

She’s in love with me, but I never got a say
Someone save me please from her crazy game
She’s in love with me, and I’m scared she’s here to stay
Stay, stay, stay

She’s in love with me, but I never got a say
Someone save me please from her crazy game
She’s in love with me, and I’m scared she’s here to stay
Stay, stay, stay

Well, she’s in love with me, but how do I get away? Someone save me please from her crazy game
She’s in love with me, and I might want her to stay
Stay, stay, stay

She got away, way, way
She got away, way
Way, way
Way, way, way, way
She got away

Gloria Jones – Tainted Love lyrics

Sometimes I feel I’ve got to
Run away, I’ve got to
Get away from the pain you drive into the heart of me
The love we share
Seems to go nowhere
And our love’s not right
For I toss and turn, I can’t sleep at night

Once I ran to you (I ran)
Now I run from you (Now I run)
The tainted love you’re giving
I gave you all a girl can give you
Take not give and that’s not nearly all
Tainted love (Oh)
Tainted love

Now I know I’ve got to
Run away, I’ve got to
Get away, you don’t really want any love from me
To make things right
You need someone to hold you tight
And who think love is to play
Well I’m sorry, I don’t play that way

Once I ran to you (I ran)
Now I run from you (Now I run)
The tainted love you’re giving
I gave you all a girl can give you
Take not give and that’s not nearly all
Tainted love (Oh)
Tainted love

Don’t touch me please
I cannot stand the way you (Tease)
I know you will hurt me so
If I do not pack my things and go (Oh)

Tainted love (Oh)
Oh, tainted love (Oh)
Tainted love, oh
Tainted love (Oh)
Talk me baby tainted love
Talk me baby tainted love

Reverend And The Makers – Black Widow lyrics

If the truth’s to be told, it’s just you best fit the mold
That she formed long ago
It’s all a part of a plan, obtain the house then the man
Before she gets too old

She’s gonna swallow you whole
‘Cause she’s a black widow

Guess you’ve been wondering how, if we were younger than now
Would your world be a stage
Or does the slumber that comes from living under her thumbs
Render it all a cage

She’s gonna swallow you whole
‘Cause she’s a black widow

There’s only one prognosis, anybody coming to
She got you via hypnosis, she got the claws in you
There’s only one prognosis, anybody coming to
She got you via hypnosis, she got the claws in you

I want you to wash all over me
I’ll be the beach and you be the sea
I want you to wash all over me

I’ll be the branches, while you be the breeze
Bend and shake me any way you please
I’ll be the beach and you be the sea
I want you to wash all over me

I’ll be the beach and you be the sea
I want you to wash all over me
All over me
All over me
All over me
All over me

Reverend And The Makers – Stuck On You lyrics

Is it the feeling or its absence really makes me blue
I can’t reverse this curse brought on by the photographs of you
Though I cut you out of a Polaroid in an attempt to forget you
Declare all romance null and void, it seems you just won’t let me

We’re two years over the time
When I should even bear you in mind
It’s obvious to anyone I really must be stuck on you

Like a leaf that might well fall forsaken by the spring
I’m the bird who summer left and might neglect to sing
As I brush you off, try and paint the town
Red to react with a rebound
I’m aware my eyes just let me down
I wonder where you could be now

We’re two years over the time
When I should even bear you in mind
It’s obvious to anyone I really must be stuck on you
So obvious to anyone I really must be stuck on you

Well, we’re two years over the time
When I should even bear you in mind
It’s obvious to anyone I really must be stuck on you
So obvious to anyone I really must be stuck on you
