Rubberband Girl Lyrics
What it's about: Kate encourages us to be more flexible and resilient in this one -- in short, to "go with the flow".
Running time: 4:44
Rubberband Girl (Extended) Lyrics
Running time: 7:06
Big Stripey Lie Lyrics
What it's about: A really distressing song in which a woman attempts to come to terms with being betrayed by her lover. (*My* interpretation, mind you; and a pretty depressing one at that...)
Running time: 3:31
This is practically identical to the UK release, but it's in a little nicer package -- it includes a 6 page English/Japanese lyric booklet.
