More Than A Feeling (Boston Cover [Proof of Concept])
More Than A Feeling (Boston Cover [Proof of Concept])I was just looking into how I would play this in Drop A# and it came out more fun than I thought it would.
RomeThey all respect me I hear what they say They'll come to get me Before my last day They won't forget me They'll raise statues in my name And it will be quite a sight a see Everybody will come to see me off Plot a course for the open sky They don't care They want to watch someone die They say I'm wicked They don't have a clue I'd slit their throats while they sleep And I'd slit your's too They want a monster Let's give them a show They say for mercy that I must beg reprieve They'll kill me quickly and burn me out at sea Can one reach paradise if final words are lies They don't care They wanna watch someone die Please don't resent me For not coming home Twas my intention To leave you this tome But oh what rapture Glory to Rome

Two Ships (Rough Take During Practice)Harder, Better, Faster You keep your rhythm plastered You calm your slow disaster And go home to your master Now keep that bat between us Boy you should have seen us Like two ships docking marinas Laughing like hyenas And I am Keeping time in my head And I am Keeping time with my hand And I am Keeping time in my head I am Keeping time in my head I am Keeping time with my hand I am Keeping time in my head Now his ships sinking deeper Boy I couldn't keep her He made a true believer Out of the blasphemers And I've got no connection To his small reflection Can't keep this erection Can't keep this erection And I am Keeping time in my head And I am Keeping time with my hand And I am Keeping time in my head I am Keeping time in my head I am Keeping time with my hand I am Keeping time in my head This is the vaguest scripture This is my careless whisper This is my long reciever This is my silver speaker And I am Keeping time in my head And I am Keeping time with my hand And I am Keeping time in my head I am Keeping time in my head I am Keeping time with my hand I am Keeping time in my head

Break (Full Band)
Break (Full Band)Sneakers crawling up the wayside And down the guttered lanes Stealing cadavers from the grapevines And dropping in the flames Ooh I thought that we were a little bit closer Ooh I'm breaking up and losing composure Ooh I'm begging for a little bit of a closer Ooh I'm taking on more than I can shoulder Broke it off before the weekdays To give ourselves some time But my life is ever sideways Without our paridagm Ooh the moss has grown a little bit thicker Ooh on that boulevard where you became a killer Ooh He'll keep you warm in the month of December Ooh come on clap your hands, the devil loves a sinner And I buried my soul In a body so low That I can't dig it out So spade up my friends And tonight we will chant Our "Burrow Euphony"
Eye of The Tiger (Demo Cover)
Eye of The Tiger (Demo Cover)Made this at work one day. Messed up a bit on the second chorus, but it's fun to show off regardless.
NeedyYou needy little shit I can't stay gone without you I can't enjoy myself You needy little shit How do I stay strong without you How do I keep my health? I spend 8 hours a day at work While under covers where you sleep you lurk You give me 1 fucking hour Where you're not breathing down my neck You needy little fuck You oh so undeserving You're selfish as can be You say you're broken up But join motherfucking club We're depressesed at best I guarantee Your baggage needs a fucking baggage claim Cause I am sifting through it every day If I hear one more fucking problem That you could fix I'm gonna die
BreakSneakers crawling up the wayside And down the guttered lanes Stealing cadavers from the grapevines And dropping in the flames Ooh I thought that we were a little bit closer Ooh I'm begging for a little bit of a closer Ooh I'm breaking up and losing composure Ooh I'm taking on more than I can shoulder Broke it off before the weekdays To give ourselves some time But my life is turning ever sideways Without our paridagm Ooh the moss has grown a little bit thicker Ooh on that boulevard where you became a killer Ooh come on clap your hands, the devil loves a sinner He'll keep you warm in the month of December And I buried my soul In a body so low That I can't dig it out So spade up my friends And tonight we will chant Our "Burrow Euphony"
Needle In The Hay (Elliott Smith Cover With Modified Lyrics)
Needle In The Hay (Elliott Smith Cover With Modified Lyrics)Your hand on his arm Haystack charm around your neck Strung out and thin Calling some friend trying to cash some check He's acting dumb That's what you've come to expect Needle in the hay Needle in the hay Needle in the hay Needle in the hay He's wearing your clothes Head down to toes a reaction to you You say you knew what he did But you idiot kid You don't have a clue Sometimes they just got caught in the eye You're pulling him through Needle in the hay Needle in the hay Needle in the hay Needle in the hay Now on the bus And I'm touching his dirt, dirty retreat Falling up Six 6th and Powell, with sweat in my teeth Gonna walk, four more blocks puts one in my brain Down on the band, one in his hand. Needle in the hay Needle in the hay Needle in the hay Needle in the hay
OsirisDmno5, G7no3 Strip me down with turpentine Thin up all my paints And dress me up like saints Bring me down oh Pergito. I'm never quite as good As the ones that you have known I've been buried everywhere All alone the Nile On ever single mile Bring back oh my lovers arm Caironian's gentle kiss And your death will be bliss Frankincense and Goldilocks Eaten up by bears In the dress you couldn't wear Break it down to be removed It's only one more night You can leave them all behind
Old Unused Melody 2
Old Unused Melody 2Originally meant to be Two Ships Pt. 2 but that went in a different direction. This could potentially be Two Ships Pt. 3 in the future though.
Swindled (Work In Progress)
Swindled (Work In Progress)Capo 3 C#m, F, Gm (bar), Em Put your proceeds in a jar They will go feed the hungry And disappointment don't reach far But far enough to reach my bedside Count the shards of little glass Pluck them out lacerations And desperation it don't last You turn the key theres no connection C#m, F, A And can you give me one more lesson? And can you give me an erection? Can you give me your perfection? I share your lack of life direction.

The Shades of Grey (demo)
The Shades of Grey (demo)Am, E, C, G Smart people drink to get stupid And sad people take all the pills And the cop that lives down at the corner of my street takes them both back to jail And I don't know who's side to be on And I don't know what I should say And I don't know who put those thoughts in your head Said, "It's wrong to be gay." Now a god fearing man reads his bible An athiest wonders and dreams But both of them end up in the grave diggers hole To me that's just how it seems And I don't know who's side to be on And I don't know what I should say But I can say fuck it you're born just to die So it's already to late Now the younger man he doesn't sleep very much He thinks what the future will bring But the older man he just sits and laments On what he could have been And I don't know who's side to be on And I don't know what I should say Rally your men do the best that you can Find some shade of grey.
Mr. TruckerMr Trucker gets his mail Down by the old courthouse Mr Trucker Gets some tail Down by the old courthouse Mr Trucker gets impaled In the bathroom stall Mr Trucker never fails To bring on home his haul But before you ever knew it But before you even find Before your gardens even grew it Mr Trucker was all mine Mr Trucker gets his pay I'm a three fold check Mr Trucker doesn't say If he's finished yet Mr Trucker gets so kind When his kids are away Mr Trucker finds the time To clear up his day But before you ever knew it But before you even find Before your gardens grew it Mr Trucker was all mine
The End (My Chemical Romance Cover)
The End (My Chemical Romance Cover)Now come one come all to this tragic affair Wipe off that makeup, what's in is despair So throw on the black dress, mix in with the lot You might wake up and notice you're someone you're not If you look in the mirror and don't like what you see You can find out firsthand what it's like to be me So gather 'round piggies and kiss this goodbye I'd encourage your smiles I'll expect you won't cry Another contusion, my funeral jag Here's my resignation, I'll serve it in drag You've got front row seats to the penitence ball When I grow up I want to be nothing at all! I said yeah, yeah! I said yeah, yeah! C'mon C'mon C'mon I said (Save me!) Get me the hell out of here (Save me!) Too young to die and my dear (You can't!) If you can hear me just walk away and (Take me!)

I Can Feel Your Pain
I Can Feel Your PainCapo on First Fret Well I watched your black tied family Rise up from graves near cemeteries That I have not been to since you goodbye And I drank another simile And compared your Jesus to a thief He took my bones and turned them into bread. Cause I can feel your pain, in my bones, in my bones. I was scared to call your mother For news that you weren't getting better Well my God, what the hell am I supposed to do? And I ran off and ran on to something That I swore was everything but beautiful I only say that word for you Cause I can feel your pain, in my bones, in my bones. And I can feel your pain, deep in my bones, deep in my bones. And hallelujah to the one in our bones And hallelujah to the one that we love
Working Class Mercenary
Working Class MercenaryB7, A5, Em Follow me Follow me Down the cracked and blackened street The world we make is better for the all Can it be Can it be The one's who are controlling me Have pocket books gilded to the seams? Well I will make a better way With modest work for modest pay And you, you hardcore democrat Extremist fucking psychopath But we will never let it go Now watch our godamn numbers grow Your stock portfolio And fine pressed suit Nuclear Family Photos Your smith and wesson model Water Gun For home invaders and for fun But me you will remember me I'm filled with fucking corporate greed And I will make your brother bleed In combat running serpentine And politics gets real extreme With Walton's fucking annex team Follow me Follow me Down the cracked and blackened street The world we make is better for the all Can it be Can it be That I'm the one controlling me And maybe I've forgotten how smile?
Jhonny Be Good Demo
Jhonny Be Good DemoCapo 1 Verse : Am, E, G, F Chorus : F, G# Major (4th Fret), C Major (8th Fret), A# (6th Fret) Jhonny is The best damn mechanic in town An older man Who served with his boots on the ground Served 17 years in jungle Back in ole 'Nam He can't sleep at night But Jhonny's soft as the lamb Jhonny's house Was built on an old gravel road Miles from town Jhonny spent his days alone With painted white walls Jhonny's room ain't so pleasant to see A crucifix He prayed to cure his disease Hands full of pills Cause he thinks He's still there While the shells land Whispering The lord's prayer Afraid to die Jhonny is The most civil man in his town Drinks alot Sometimes sun up to sundown He only leaves home when he's gotta go out back to work In his motor shop Memories of 'nam he can shirk Jhonny is The best damn mechanic in town An older man Who served with his boots on the ground Served 17 years in jungle Back in ole 'Nam He can't sleep at night But Jhonny's soft as the lamb
America's #1 Depressional Athlete
America's #1 Depressional AthleteHalf Step Down 7th Fret and 5th I didn't want to see you again I didn't expect to see you again I didn't want to see you But it happened any way I didn't want to touch you again I didn't want to feel you again I didn't want to touch you Yeah I swear that I'm just fine When the sadness comes It's because that you're not mine Yeah I think I fucked up It happens all the time Had a breakdown in my room Had to sing this sorry tune Had a breakdown I can't put it into words And just because I told you Doesn't mean you can help I am self-destructive That's the only hand I'm dealt
AdulteryThe prospect of being here Pounding Away Thought I had made my last mistake Sounding of Trumpets Slipped from a cup Tower that crumbles far away And I am the Heirophant Holy and Saint Singing of Bablyon's Golden Gate Who drives the Chariot? Behind the reigns made of swords and of canes. Loving Empress bring me home Let your bosom be my throne With your King so far away The Magician's here to stay Loving Empress bring me home Let your bosom be my throne With your King so far away The Magician's here to stay
I Grew Horns (DemoN)
I Grew Horns (DemoN)You found rope To hang yourself from the stables And I grew horns As I smashed your mothers head between my hands But she could walk And kept you there right beside her I grew horns As you slowly lulled me off to sleep I carried you Down that broken street beside us Found those boys That took you down into the holy Earth And I grew horns As you declared I was the victor And I grew horns As you pushed that fork Right into my eye
My wife and I drunkenly sing People 2 by AJJ
My wife and I drunkenly sing People 2 by AJJMan I was REALLY slamming on that acoustic in retrospect. I'm surprised I didn't break a string.
Beggar ManCapo 1 Verse : Em, G, F#, C Em, G, A, C Chorus : Em, G, Fm, C I'm a begger man The only job that I have ever known And I'm a better man Than any sinner casting the first stone Did you listen closely To the word of god written so unknown Or did dance around and fornicate And grind it to the bone I'm a copper smith A burly man of heart and hammer smelt Over fire pit My metals buckle down the bible belt And I'm no saint or sinner Just a man who's dealing what is dealt I'm a copper smith Hunching over watching honor melt I'm a giant man Who's heart has grown two sizes far too large I'm not a moral man But somehow I keep ending up in charge But I'm no leader either Just a soul who's lost the will to fight But I stand at front of war zones Telling you it's never black and white
Boys I'll Have A Word (Demo)
Boys I'll Have A Word (Demo)There's a man in Oklahoma That won't be livin' till tommora' Cause of me And pray his life is ended quickly Now I'm drinkin' out the bottle And I'm loading up my model Calvary And he knows I'm comin' for him. Poor Zachary He's got half a dozen men Drinkin' in his sinners den Enjoying A poker game, with gold stolen from me And I sing "Boys...I'll have word." Lest you're too deaf or too absurd And I'm singin' "Boys...I'll have a word." "I'll leave your bodes to be interred." Now I've got full foot inside With two pistols at my side Ready I let a bullet fly, into a knee When they're pullin' for their guns I started to speak in tongues Open fire A hell broke loose inside, war did transpire Now there's only two to go But my ammos runnin' low Terrified But I will have my revenge, justified And I sing "Boys...I'll have word." Lest you're too deaf or too absurd And I'm singin' "Boys...I'll have a word." "I'll leave your bodes to be interred." After several seconds more Their bodies lying on the floor And I'm in pain A bullet to the lung, try to maintain Then I saw him standing there A figure shaking, breaking, scared For his life On a balcony above, holding a knife He said "Stay away from me" "I'm more than you'll ever be" "A man of god." And I shot him down just like, a firing squad And I sing "Boys...I'll have word." Lest you're too deaf or too absurd And I'm singin' "Boys...I'll have a word." "I'll leave your bodes to be interred."
Old Unused Melody
Old Unused MelodyJust some old melody. Maybe I'll make something out of it one day.
Oh Jeremih (Demo)
Oh Jeremih (Demo)There was a lady paid with silver To keep my bed warm in winter nights But lo and behold The saddest story ever told I fell in love with her I wed her, bed her, and she took my name She never had a need for anything And as she brushed her hair In and ivory and encrusted It turned from brown to grey We picked a name, call him Jeremih He kept us warm in our winter nights But oh what trickery The fates were so unkind you see They stole my love away When love was murdered on the birthing bed I remember every word she said And then the baby came A deformed and disgusting thing The one called Jeremih Oh Jeremih I'll never stay here by your side You're left to rot away Oh Jeremih Look closer at her fading light And know what you have done Oh Jeremih I leave you here alone at night The wolves can have their way Oh Jeremih Don't take her she's not your's she's mine Don't let her go away
Leaf, Stone, And Discretion (Demo)
Leaf, Stone, And Discretion (Demo)Capo 4 Verse : Am, C, Am, C, Am, C, E Chorus : F, G, E, Cm, Em, F, G, E, Cm, Em To describe the mental state I'm in Would be rather hard my friends I guess you could say I'm less than lovely My bones shiver this crazy night The candles spent, they're out of light I think it's time that someone finally ends you Oh I've watched her hurt I've seen her bruised More than enough And I've got the groove And I've got the guts And I'll have your head I'll fix it up all proper like Dig this pit deep overnight Cover it with leaf, stone, and discretion I'll cause a fuss and draw your ire Deny you warmth, put out the fire And cause you aggravation even further Now winter has the darkest nights The air carries the harshest bites You should have known I was up to something Runing out without my coat And yours in hand begin to gloat And cause you such strife that you will chase me So I'll watch you squirm See that you learn And have plenty of time Silenty repent Rot in your hole End of the line Approaching quickly your eyes see red I don't know what was in your head But I was certain of your intent to kill me You struck me once then struck me twice I turned the other cheek like Christ Then kicked you in the groin for something desperate My trap lay just a few more yardws I darted forward as you charged But you succomed to wit rather quickly Your legs gave loose upon impact Took me seconds to react My hear was burning with pride and satisfaction So I'll watch you squirm See that you learn And have plenty of time Silenty repent Rot in your hole End of the line
Two Ships (Demo)
Two Ships (Demo)Capo 3 : Em, Gm, Am, F, G Harder better faster You keep your rhythm plastered You calm your slow disaster Go home to your master Keep your bat between us Boy you should have seen us Two ships docking marinas Laughing like Hyenas And I am keeping time in my head (x6) Now his ship is sinking deeper I knew I couldn't keep her He made a true believer Out of all the blasphemers And I've not got no connection To his small reflection Can't keep this erection Can't keep this erection And I am keeping time in my head (x6) This is the vaguest scripture This is the careless whisper This is my long receiver This is the silver speaker And I am keeping time in my head (x6)
Lifeless (Demo)You felt so good inside my chest A tickling feeling You're so much better than all the rest Sit inside that open door Saw your body Life outlined on the floor Never been so critical About your sadness You lived your life out miserable And if you ever went to heaven A burning pillar And God is nothing but a weapon And if you ever feel alive I hear you cry And if you ever told a lie I hear you cry And so did I
Jennifer SymeThe hum in your head Is the worst of the dead It's the baby you lost To the Hospital bed And I wanna be What I wanna be Tell me nothing is free Tell what to believe Loving a man Can erase all your plans Run away if you can From the shame in this land And I wanna be What I wanna be Tell me nothing is free Tell me what to believe Fear of dying alone Is calling your phone He says that you're on your own But he's with you And I wanna be What I wanna be Tell me nothing is free Tell her what to believe
Mrs AndmanMrs Andman Bring me a dream Make him the cutest that I've ever seen Give him two lips like roses and clover And tell him his lonesome nights are over Mrs Andman I'm all alone Don't have nobody to call my own Please turn on your my magic beam Mrs Andman Bring me a dream
JesusJesus Christ, that's a pretty face The kind you'd find on someone I could save If they don't put me away Well, it'll be a miracle Do you believe you're missin' out That everything good is happening somewhere else? But with nobody in your bed The night's hard to get through And I will die all alone And when I arrive I won't know anyone Well, Jesus Christ, I'm alone again So what did you do those three days you were dead? 'cause this problem's gonna last more than the weekend. Well, Jesus Christ, I'm not scared to die, I'm a little bit scared of what comes after Do I get the gold chariot? Do I float through the ceiling? Do I divide and fall apart? 'cause my bright is too slight to hold back all my dark And the ship went down in sight of land And at the gates, does Thomas ask to see my hands? I know you're coming in the night like a thief But I've had some time alone to hone my lying technique I know you think that I'm someone you can trust But I'm scared I'll get scared and I swear I'll try to nail you back up (everyone now) So do you think that we could work out a sign So I'll know it's you and that it's over so I won't even try I know you're coming for the people like me We all got wood and nails And tongue-tied at hate factories We all got wood and nails And tongue-tied at hate factories We all got wood and nails And we sleep inside of this machine
It's Always Cold In Siberia
It's Always Cold In SiberiaIf I was a tree I would be the oldest tree in the world If I could be anything I would be some girl who doesn't Worry about how life is going to end. If you and I could get along any better than them Then I wouldn't have to lock all of my precious thing in hell And I could be the one who wouldn't worry Cut me open and count the rings inside You'll find that I believe in all for one and one for all besides Why would I hate a brother in disguise? When I walk down the street I don't want anybody to know who I am If you look at me you'll see just another man in front of your plans And a hollow acceptance is just one breath off your chest If you think not loving me is best Then I can [Can't] be who we both would love
Fairy TalesStandard Tuning In the silence of space Where there is no breathing A star becomes the face Of what you are needing And of course you won't take it for yourself You'd rather stay inside and waste away the day As the sun beams down Burns a hole into your pocket The funds that flow out Can't even stop it And of course you wont' take it for yourself You'd rather stay inside and waste away the day You greedy little fuck You don't know what you're missing Sleeping in the lions den Hoping god is listening And of course he will pass you down a coat To make your father proud and make your brothers gloat Sleepy Jonah Won't you pop your bubbly dream? Make the whale who carries All you've ever needed And of course you will survive this aquatic venture But don't forget to buy some new prophetic dentures
The Lovesong Writer (Cover)
The Lovesong Writer (Cover)Drop D I changed some lyrics. When he's sitting alone in the dark of the stadium Then whispers his secrets into a cheap guitar With the flick of his wrist he turns words into melodies Chords into Churchbells Fills up the alleys Lovers intwine in the heat of the night And by dawn are apart in the shivering silences We will pretend That it's all just made up The songs that he writes Are too personal He can't play them for anyone When he's all alone The Lovesong Writer sings Can anyone hear me now? But no one hears at all. So he stumbles through sylables Cut from their senteces Lost letters call to him, deep in the alphabet Please give us meaning. Pose for me now You're the broken heart You're the sigh in the back of the throat And on the other side, you're the Queen of Spades You're the sigh that she makes on her way There's always a way out There's always a way out When he's all alone The Lovesong Writer sings Can anyone hear me now? But no one hears at all. The Lovesong Writer sits all alone And hears the sound of the knock on the door. Fifty red roses falling apart In the hands of someone that you scraped in and left behind All of the others scorned by their love Showed up at your door They say "Sing for me, Sing for me, Sing for me now!" "Sing for me, Sing for me, Sing for me now!" But you already are.
Good DaySo you don't want to hear about my good song? And you don't want to hear about how i am getting on With all the things that i can get done The sun is in the sky & i am by my lonesome So you don't want to hear about my good day? You have better things to do than to hear me say God its been a lovely day! everything's been going my way I took out the trash today and i'm on fire... So you don't want to hear about my good friends? You don't have the guts to take the truth or consequence Success is in the eye of the beholder And its looking even better over your cold shoulder I'm not suggesting you get to line me up for questioning But Jesus think about the bridges you are burning And i'm betting That even though you knew it from the start You'd rather be a bitch than be an ordinary broken heart So go ahead and talk about your bad day... I want all the details of the pain and misery That you are inflicting on the others I consider them my sisters and I want their numbers God its been a lovely day! everything's been going my way I took up croquet today and i'm on fire I picked up the pieces of my broken ego I have finally made my peace as far as you and me go But i'd love to have you up to see the place & i'd like to do more than survive i'd like to rub it in your face..... Hey! its been a lovely day! everything's been going my way I had so much fun today and i'm on fire God it's been a lovely day everything's been going my way Ever since you went away hey i'm on fire.....
A Pretty Name (Mrs JFK In Bed)
A Pretty Name (Mrs JFK In Bed)Down a Half Step She came to me last week She was curled up in a ball She she had some time to think But had no time at all But I'm the modest man I don't let people know That my ambitions are great Hidding all my woe I remember back in school Being youngest, playing fool I remember how she said That she was missing half her head Ontop of a hill Is a basement where you'll stay Never leave, if you will Stay In bed all day I remember back in school Being youngest, playing fool I remember how she said That she was missing half her head
God Painted The Sky
God Painted The SkyDown a Half Step You don't need the world to tell me who I am I'm in your mind And you don't need a man in cloth to save your life I'm not alive And I don't need a man to tell you who I am I have a voice You're not required to love others for you now You have a choice "If you just let me avoid pain, God; if you allow me to be happy in all of its dimensions; if you don't allow any suffering to come; if you don't allow frustrating moments to come, then I'll be alright, I'll give you a tenth of my income, and I'll go to church and I'll have faith in you." But religion is not a bargaining experience, it's not a commercial relationship. And you know, no great experience in the bargaining atmosphere. Think of friendship, think of love, and think of marriage. These things are not based on 'if,' they're based on 'though.' These great experiences are not based on a bargaining relationship, not an 'if' faith, but a 'though' faith. And I'm coming to my conclusion now. And I want to say to you this morning, my friends, that somewhere along the way you should discover something that's so dear, so precious to you, that is so eternally worthful, that you will never give it up.
Raw (Mrs JFK)
Raw (Mrs JFK)Mrs JFK missing half her head What will you do with yourself now that you are dead Will you live your life alone Sleeping in your bed Mrs JFK missing half your head Oh Mrs JFK sleeping all alone Does it hurt to know I'm singing you this song Does it remind of the time I heard your secret moan Oh MRS JFK sitting on her throne And did you make some fucking money?

I Wrote The Song Before The Name (Now It Has No Name)Drop D As she looks Out of the window I will wait For you to appear And Settle my fears Of how this will end up in the end All I know Is that you are somewhere far away Where you cannot hear Displace my fear I know you'll believe me when I say I'm not good at letters But I will write you one because You are not here And when I shed a tear It will be for all of us involved All I know Is that you are somewhere far away Where you can't hear Displace my fear I know you'll believe me when I say If this song Makes it to heaven where you belong Send me your thanks Through the liqour I drank In memory of what you did for me I'll stay up Write up a song I think you'll love Fill me with smoke And I'll provoke God so that he may strike me down All I know Is that you are somewhere far away Where you can't hear Displace my fear I know you'll believe me when I say
Missing DogStandard Tuning If you drowned in the water From the rain that fell from the sky I don't know who I would bother To ask if I could cry If this is all there is to it Then rain falls in reverse And I'll wait for another Friend of mine to pass in a hearse This only as slight build up To words that I can't write To fight off all these urges To keep you out of my sight I'll write these words as the song plays Over and over again And I can't count the days Till I can call you my friend In the end
