Track Name: TAKE ME HOME
I’M HEADED DOWN THE LINE
CAN’T FIND NO PEACE OF MIND
I CAN SEE MYSELF DYING IF I DON’T MAKE A CHANGE
INSIDE OF ME A RAGE THAT IS BARELY CONTAINED
I’VE GOT NO MORE FIGHT
I’M HEADING AWAY FROM THE LIGHTS

INTO THE DARKNESS
INTO THE UNKNOWN
I’VE GOT A FEELING IN MY BONES
THAT THIS IS MY NEW HOME

HOME
TAKE ME HOME
HOME
TAKE ME
HOME
TAKE ME HOME

EVERYTHING I LOVE
I CAN FIT IN MY CAR
I WANNA DRIVE SO FAR THAT WE LOSE OURSELVES
CAUSE WHEN YOU LOSE YOURSELF
THATS WHEN YOU FIND YOURSELF
EVERYTHING IS CLEAR
LET’S GET THE FUCK OUT OF HERE

INTO THE DARKNESS
INTO THE UNKNOWN
I’VE GOT A FEELING IN MY BONES
THAT THIS IS MY NEW HOME

HOME
TAKE ME HOME
HOME
TAKE ME
HOME
TAKE ME HOME
Track Name: I DON'T THINK YOU'LL MISS ME WHEN I'M DEAD AND GONE
IN YOUR EYES I SEE LOVE
AND A HEART THAT IS STRONG
IN YOUR VOICE I HEAR ANGER
CAUSE WE DON’T ALWAYS GET ALONG
IN YOUR ARMS I FEEL SAFE
FOR A MOMENT NOTHINGS WRONG
BUT SOMEHOW I GET THE FEELING
THAT YOU’LL EASILY MOVE ON

YOU WILL FIND YOURSELF ANOTHER LOVE
AND BEFORE TOO LONG
AND I DON’T THINK YOU’LL MISS ME
WHEN I’M DEAD AND GONE
Track Name: I WANNA LIVE LIKE A GOLDEN RETRIEVER
I WANNA LIVE LIKE A GOLDEN RETRIEVER
RUN TILL I'M DONE
THEN LIE IN THE SUN

I WANNA LIVE LIKE A GOLDEN RETRIEVER
MAKE YOU LAUGH
THEN FILL YOU WITH LOVE

OH NO
WE AIN'T GOT TOO LONG TO GO
EVERYBODY GETS OLD AND DIES
BUT DON'T SIT AROUND AND CRY
GET OUT IN THE SUN
AND LIVE YOUR BEST LIFE
Track Name: ROMEO
ROMEO ROMEO
I LOVE YOU SO
I LOVE YOU SO
ROMEO ROMEO
I LOVE YOU SO
I LOVE SO

HE PROPOSED TO ME
HE PROPOSED TO ME
I DIDN'T ASK FOR IT
HE PROPOSED TO ME
HE PROPOSED TO ME
I DIDN'T ASK FOR IT

HE GAVE ME A RING
HE GAVE ME A RING
I DIDN'T ASK FOR IT
HE GAVE ME A RING
HE GAVE ME A RING
I DIDN'T ASK FOR IT

OOH ROMEO
OH I LOVE YOU SO
OOH ROMEO
OH I LOVE YOU SO
Track Name: IT'S SO HARD
IT’S SO HARD
IT’S SO HARD
IT’S SO HARD
IT’S SO HARD
TO HOLD ON TO NOTHING

IT’S SO HARD
IT’S SO HARD
IT’S SO HARD
IT’S SO HARD
TO HOLD ON TO KNOW ONE

AND I KNOW YOUR MIND
AND I CAN BE UNKIND
AND I KNOW YOU’RE SAD
BUT I WANNA BE BAD
Track Name: I DON'T KNOW WHY
I DON'T WHY
YOU'D WANNA GO OUT
AND LEAVE ME
I DON'T KNOW WHY
YOU'D WANNA GO OUT
WHEN YOU COULD JUST STAY WITH ME

I DON'T WHY
YOU'D WANNA DO ANYTHING WITHOUT ME
LOOK INTO MY EYES AND YOU'LL SEE
YOU'RE HURTING ME SO
PLEASE DON'T GO

PLEASE DON'T GO
Track Name: O.E.O.D.
I HAD A REAL GOOD TIME
BUT I THINK THAT I BROKE MY MIND
CARVED IN A HOMEMADE TATTOO
I’M NEVER GONNA GET OVER YOU

I’VE ONLY BEEN HERE SIX OR SEVEN WEEKS
BUT I’VE MET ALL KINDS OF FREAKS
HOME SEEMS SO FAR AWAY
I’D HATE TO THINK WHAT MY MUM WOULD SAY

NOTHING I DID EVER WENT TO PLAN
I SLEPT ONE NIGHT BY SOME GARBAGE CANS
I WRAPPED A TOWEL AROUND MY HEAD
AND I PRAYED TO GOD I WOULDN’T FREEZE TO DEATH

I MET THE LOVE OF MY THE LOVE OF MY LIFE
AND INTO MY ARM I CUT WITH A KNIFE
SOMETHING TO REMIND ME
SHE WAS NOT THE ONE FOR ME

THAT LIFE SEEMS SO LONG AGO
NOT A PHOTO NOT A CENT LEFT TO SHOW
BUT A LOT OF FUZZY MEMORIES
AND SOME SONGS TO SET ME FREE

WHEN I GO BACK IN Y MIND
I WISH I SAID MORE AT THE TIME
BUT YOU CAN’T LIVE WITH REGRET
SAME AS YOU CAN NEVER FORGET
Track Name: YOU COULD LEARN A LOT FROM A ZOMBIE
YOU COULD LEARN A LOT FROM A ZOMBIE
YOU CAN'T BREAK THE WILL OF A ZOMBIE
YOU COULD LEARN A LOT FROM A ZOMBIE
YOU CAN'T BREAK THE HEART OF A ZOMBIE

INSIDE YOU FEEL DEAD
GET HER OUT OF YOUR HEAD
TOO TIRED TO GO TO BED
TOO MANY VOICES IN YOUR HEAD

OH SWEET BLOOD WASHES OVER YOUR SOUL
OH SWEET LOVE WILL NEVER GROW OLD
OH SWEET BLOOD WASHES OVER YOUR SOUL
OH SWEET LOVE WILL NEVER GROW OLD
Track Name: POSSESSION
IN YOUR BROKEN DREAMS
DO YOU EVER SEE ME?
IN YOUR BROKEN HEART
IS YOUR LOVE SHATTERED TO SHARDS?

NOW IT’S TIME
TO CHOOSE YOUR SIDE

DRENCHED IN BLOOD
YOUR TEARS RAN LIKE A FLOOD
AS ALL AROUND YOU BURNED
NO LESSONS DID YOU LEARN

YOU STILL MAKE MISTAKES
OVER AND OVER AGAIN

WHEN YOU’RE ALONE
DO YOU SIT BY THE PHONE
WAITING ON CALLS THAT NEVER COME
COME INTO MY BED
GET OUT OF YOUR HEAD
SMOKE AWAY YOUR PAIN
BEFORE I DRIVES YOU INSANE

NOW IT’S TIME
TO CHOOSE YOUR SIDE
YOU STILL MAKE MISTAKES
OVER AND OVER AGAIN
Track Name: YOU WERE A CARROTT YOU WERE A TIGER
YOU WERE A CARROT
YOU WERE A TIGER
I WASN’T VERY GOOD TO YOU
ITS SOMETHING THAT I STRUGGLE WITH
I CARRY YOU AROUND
LOCKED INSIDE MY HEART
COVERED IN CHOCOLATE
THE ONE THE ONLY GARBOTT

I DIDN’T KNOW YOU WELL ENOUGH
BUT WHEN I THOUGHT OF YOU
IT WAS ONLY LOVE
SING A SAD SONG WHEN YOU’RE GONE
I’LL CARRY YOUR COFFIN AND PRETEND TO BE STRONG

YOU WERE LIKE A CAT
CURLED UP ON LAP
IF I WASN’T SO MESSED UP
I MIGHT HAVE SEEN THE LIGHT
ONLY A FEW NIGHTS
BUT ENOUGH TO LAST A LIFETIME
ENOUGH TO LEAVE A HOLE
IN MY SOUL WHERE YOU USED TO GO

I DIDN’T KNOW YOU WELL ENOUGH
BUT WHEN I THOUGHT OF YOU
IT WAS ONLY LOVE
SING A SAD SONG WHEN YOU’RE GONE
I’LL CARRY YOUR COFFIN AND PRETEND TO BE STRONG

IF YOU WERE MINE
AND I’D LOST YOU DOWN THE LINE
I DON’T THINK I COULD LIVE
CAUSE LIVINGS HARD ENOUGH
I WISH I’D SEEN YOU
BEFORE YOU HAD TO GO
OH YOU LEFT WITH SO MANY THINGS UNSAID

I DIDN’T KNOW YOU WELL ENOUGH
BUT WHEN I THOUGHT OF YOU
IT WAS ONLY LOVE
SING A SAD SONG WHEN YOU’RE GONE
I’LL CARRY YOUR COFFIN AND PRETEND TO BE STRONG
Track Name: INTO AN UNKNOWN UNDERWORLD
I SING INTO YOUR EAR
A BROKEN HEARTED LULLABY
I’LL LIE BESIDE YOUR GRAVE
UNTIL YOU DECIDE TO RISE
EVERYTHING YOU KNOW CAN
SO QUICKLY GO AWAY
EVEN THINGS YOU TRY TO LOCK DOWN
SOMEHOW JUST SLIP AWAY
AND SO I TRY MY BEST TO KEEP YOU SATISFIED
BUT AS MY BODY STARTS TO CRUMBLE
I PREPARE TO SAY GOODBYE

YOU WERE A VISION
OF ALL THATS GOOD IN LIFE
A WALKING HEART CONDITION
THAT COULD SURELY END MY LIFE
SOMEHOW WE MADE IT WORK
AND YOU STAYED AND BECAME MY WIFE
EVEN WITH ALL MY MISTAKES
YOU STAYED BY MY SIDE
AND NOW OUR LOVE IS STRONG
I FEAR AN UNTIMELY END
AND PARANOIA GRIPS MY MIND
TIME AND TIME AGAIN

OH MY LORD DON’T TAKE HER AWAY FROM ME
SATAN PLEASE RELEASE YOUR GRASP
AND COME BACK ANOTHER DAY
WE WILL BE LONG GONE AND HAVE MADE OUR ESCAPE
INTO AND UNKNOWN UNDERWORLD FAR FAR AWAY

THERE IS NO ESCAPE
OH THIS MUCH I KNOW
EVERYTHING YOU OWN
MAKES NO DIFFERENCE ONCE YOU GO
SO LEAVE BEHIND ALL YOUR LOVE TO YOUR FAMILY
CAUSE ALL YOU REALLY HAVE ARE YOUR MEMORIES
AND SO BEFORE I GO I’LL SAY IT ONE LAST TIME
I’VE HAD THE BEST LIFE
I’M SO GLAD YOU WERE MINE

OH MY LORD DON’T TAKE HER AWAY FROM ME
SATAN PLEASE RELEASE YOUR GRASP
AND COME BACK ANOTHER DAY
WE WILL BE LONG GONE AND HAVE MADE OUR ESCAPE
INTO AND UNKNOWN UNDERWORLD FAR FAR AWAY
Track Name: MY LITTLE KIDS
YOUR LOVE IS ALL I FEEL
BEFORE YOU WAS JUST A DREAM
MY EYES CLOSED IN THE DARKNESS
ONLY OPENED WHEN YOU WERE BORN
YOU’RE ALL I NEED TO MAKE ME SMILE
TO LET ME BREATHE
A SUNNY DAY A WINTERS KISS
ITS ALWAYS WARM MY LITTLE KIDS

I’D RUN THROUGH THE FIRE FOR YOU
I’D BREAK MY BONES IN TWO
I’D SUFFER IF IT MEANT YOU DIDN’T HAVE TO
AND I’D KILL ANYONE THAT HURT YOU

GETTING OLDER
FEELING TIERED
BUT NEVER FEELING MORE ALIVE
WE GET ICE CREAM
ITS ALL A DREAM
THE SIMPLE THINGS
THE WORLD IT SPINS
SO FAST I TAKE A PICTURE
I WRITE DOWN WHAT YOU SAY
YOU TWO ARE MY TREASURE
EVERY DAY A NEW ADVENTURE

I’D RUN THROUGH THE FIRE FOR YOU
I’D BREAK MY BONES IN TWO
I’D SUFFER IF IT MEANT YOU DIDN’T HAVE TO
AND I’D KILL ANYONE THAT HURT YOU
