"Heart's on my Sleeve". The last song on this amazing CD is the gorgeous ballad "Heart on My Sleeve".

Mercy, Hope, Love, Gold. "Spinning for mercy. Spinning for hope. Spinning for love. Spinning for gold."
Madonna. "I wish I could fight against Ali and win, I wish I could write with Joni Mitchell's pen. Sail the Atlantic on a paddle boat, I wish I could smile like Bobby De Niro." Other celebrities mentioned in this song include Bono and Shakespeare.
The moon. All of the given answers are from the first verse of this song: "Do you think, do you think about the moon? Made you feel real special, cause it followed you everywhere. Do you think, Do you think about the sun showers? The way you like to run naked through them and shampoo your hair. Do you think about why we sneeze in the sun? Wish our freckles would just leave us alone! Do you think about when you're older? Will they make a Sunday night movie about your life, or do you think you have tattoos your grandkids are going to like?"
your babysitter. "Your babysitter" falls in the third verse: "I can be your babysitter (who let you stay up late), or your best friend's mother (a really hot date)". Because this is a very sexual song, Idina admitted in an interview to not wanting her Dad to hear it.
