Build me into a straw man Burn your memories of me Take somebody else's hand If they make you feel more free I'd still love you, baby When you feel like you're alone There's a place here in my heart You can make this place your home Any time you need a new start I'll still love you, baby When you break my heart take a tiny piece Of me with you to help you feel okay When all you're pain has been released I hope you'll come home to stay But if not, I'll still love you, baby I still love you, baby

Xs, Os, it's always tic-tac-toe Gunnin' for a hundred, runnin' on zero You wanted him because you didn't know That you'd be everywhere you'd ever go Your whole world is turning upside down Your whole world is turning upside down That pin cushion that you swear is real Told me something I'll just never feel The way I did before I needed healed Always needing more than I could ever buy or steal My whole world is turning upside down The whole world is turning upside down Oh Lady London, all I really ever wanted to do was just fix your head Uh oh, oh no, instead I went and killed you dead I'm sorry So sorry For every little thing I never did or said

Started out with good intentions But fucked it up with great precision It's an artform, babe We both got made It's not from a lack of trying But one of us here is lying It's an artform babe This is the bed we made You're right in your eyes I'm right in mine But maybe (maybe) Baby We're both wrong this time Got a head full of whiskey So now you don't have to miss me It's an artform, babe Yeah, we both got laid We're both so innocent We're both so full of shit It's an artform, babe We caught a bad, bad case You're right in your eyes I'm right in mine But maybe (maybe) Baby We're both wrong this time Was it ever really all that bad at all I didn't care you didn't call You're right in your eyes I'm right in mine But maybe (maybe) Baby We're both wrong this time We're both wrong This time

She wears no makeup but she'll shake up your life Her body is a blanket just to break your mind She's down She's down She likes boys and girls, wants the whole damn world She's got you caught in a curl when her sex unfurls She's down She's down She's down She's down She don't need your money, don't want your line She's got her head wrapped around something cash can't buy She's down She's down She drinks whiskey by the barrel, you don't treat her fair You'll lose her on the spot Because she knows she's hot She's down She's down She's down She's down Bloodshot baby with the look in her eye She stays close to the ground, much to my surprise She keeps me comin around and around and around and around She's down She's down She's down She's down
6.
The bottle is empty and the bill needs paid I'm in the same damn spot I was yesterday Oh whiskey, carry me home Whiskey, carry me home The girl I had, she had me one better She'd treat me bad just because I'd let her Oh whiskey, carry me home Whiskey, carry me home My best friend is married to the needle in his arm It's cold outside and it keeps him warm Oh whiskey, carry me home Whiskey, carry me home My ma and pa, they don't like me none They tell their friends they ain't got no son Oh whiskey, carry me home Whiskey, carry me home Oh whiskey, carry me home

This old pain is all I know Come the rain, come the snow If the sun ever shines on me Show the world my misery I have climbed a mountain high Came true love, came goodbye That poor girl was all I knew Her hair was blond and her soul was blue I have stood on many roads Seen folks come, watched em go I kept my head up in the clouds And left my feet back on the ground I have lived, but now I must die Give me ground, give me sky Lay me down, and then close my eyes Write my ma, and tell my friends I said goodbye Cuz I can see that the sky is goin dark Me and my own true love's been torn apart Paint it black and send it back to the start Lay me to rest and then send my best to my homesick heart Lay me to rest and then send my best to my homesick heart Lay me to rest and then send my best to my homesick heart Lay me to rest and then send my best to my homesick heart

The pain you wake to isn't yours It's just a double sided door That'll go anywhere that you'll go Always spittin those alibis To prove that getting high Ain't the only life that you know Dance around with tip-toe talk It's even in the way you walk You probably could, but you won't Captivated by lesser than It doesn't really matter where or when You know that you should, but you don't... There's fire There's fire There's fire On Broadway now Shedding skins like real life You put your throat up to the knife To find out who to follow That tomorrow you're speaking of Could always come but it never does There's just another empty bottle The night is young and deep like you You got this place that you're going to To count the hours until tomorrow Cautious cuz it suits you best You hit your licks in a restless mess Of friends that are more like shadows There's fire There's fire There's fire There's fire On Broadway now There's fire Fire There's fire There's fire There's fire There's fire There's fire There's fire On Broadway now

A lotta night clubs & after-hours places All yr pretty boys & their doorknob faces You think you've got a leg up but yr shake up is a bore I've left a lotta girls like you before It's killin me, killin me, killin me dead All the images that you paste to my head It's killin me, killin me, killin me dead And I want you gone Yr bottom's droppin out, yr sunken eyes, tasteless You can put yr body where you want, I ain't chasin' You think you've got it goin' but the real you is showin' I've seen a lotta girls like you before It's killin me, killin me, killin me dead All the images that you paste to my head It's killin me, killin me, killin me dead And I want you gone The woman that I thought you were, you ain't her I try to get close to you, freeze, say "brrrrrr" You think that you were special but you treated me like a whore I've known a lotta girls like you before It's killin me, killin me, killin me dead All the images that you paste to my head It's killin me, killin me, killin me dead And I want you gone I want you gone I'm not impressed at all, babydoll

I came on a lark you left too thin I followed you down on a prayer and a whim You fluttered your eyes I thought you a bird Such a pretty disguise for somebody that can't find the words I flew on the past you slept with today I knew the whole time you couldn't stay But that view to a kill was my baby girl The icy self-will that it took just to live in that world Maybe I'll see you somewhere out on a run Before your day is done With a mouthful of tomorrow my mind on the past I'm gonna drink this glass empty nothing good ever lasts You cut all of your hair off just to feel something new Mine just kept growing, honey it grew and it grew You slept all Sunday I wrote you a song If something is right something is wrong I tried hard to love you just like you said you need But the cloud that hangs above you was raining on me Maybe I'll see you somewhere out on a run Before your day is done Maybe I'll see you somewhere out on a run Before your day is done Maybe I'll see you somewhere out on a run Before your day is done

Home is a place where the t.v. is always on They don't notice that you're there but they'll miss you when you're gone Of all of the places to go, I think I wanna go home Don't you wanna go home I think I'm going home Don't you wanna go home I think I'm going home Home is four walls to protect you from the weather It's a really nice thought But I don't think it's forever Of all the places to go, I think I wanna go home Home can feel so far, but home it is so close It's a place to chew the nails from your fingers and your toes Of all of the places to go, I think I wanna go home Home is a place where the kitchen don't cry I've got a lot of places to go, but I Of all of the places to go, i think I wanna go home Oh, my sweet sweet honeysuckle bloody knuckle baby Don't love me no more Home is a place where they can spit in your face but they Can't lock the door Home is anywhere that you can hang yr coat n hat Home is up yr butt and you can quote me on that I got a lot of places to go, I think I wanna go home
