Melissa's missing song

LostSongFilter: I have a recollection of a song at the end of a Melissa Etheridge CD. After an extended period of silence, a spoken word piece about going sneaking into her lover's apartment when lover wasn't home...Help me find it?

I think the words included several rounds of "I shouldn't be here." She lies in her lover's bed, takes a shower, etc. It ended with finding a love note, from someone other than herself. Very creepy and voyeristic.

I thought it might be from Melissa's album Never Enough, but a look at the lyrics I could find online suggests that's maybe not it. Or since it felt like a bonus track, coming on only after a long silence, maybe it doesn't show up on such lyrics websites?

Or do I have the artist totally wrong, and it was someone else's creepy stalker song?

Best answer: It's Alanis Morissette at the end of Jagged Little Pill.

Definitely Alanis. It was a hidden track on the original Jagged Little Pill... You had to listen through the last song (which was a repeat of one of the other songs on the album)
It's on her acoustic re-release of Jagged Little Pill as well, but this time it's set to music (and it's at the end of the last song which is not a repeat song).

Good call, cgc373. That was the first thing that came to mind for me, but quinoa's "spoken word" description threw me.
