Aphrodite

 

I’ll be your Aphrodite

Show you something lovely ooh ooh ooh

Passion will ignite me, your green eyes excite me

Don’t gotta wish for my desire

You got me walking on that wire

 

And oh, you’re my love my love my love my love

Oh my love my love my love my love

Let me seduce, I’ll be your Aphrodite

Show you something exciting

I’ll be your Aphrodite

 

I can feel you watching watching

Drinking me in as I twirl around

There’s no need for talking talking

Just let me mesmerize your mind

You and I leave the world behind

 

Temptation your sweet mistress

Leaves you in a red haze ooh ooh ooh

Let the smoke collect

rise from your feet to your head

‘til you’re climbing climbing

 

CHORUS

 

You know I won’t stop until you can’t get enough of my love want you to beg me please

Your goddess from above, my sweetie baby love, dancing to your heart’s thumping beat

 

I’ll be your aphrodite yeah x4

 

Let me give you all of my love

Let me, I know you can’t get enough

 

Oh let me be your, oh let me be your aphrodite x2

 

CHORUS

The Bullet

 

Pick me up after the stars ignite

tears me apart but it feels so right

our words never make it to the light of day

just a price of the game that we play

 

lay it on heavy and bring me in

down in my soul hoping that I’ll win

I’ve never been one to give into the fright

of loneliness but could you spend the night?

 

Maybe in another life it’ll turn out right

 

Shoot me when I’m on the ground

The bullet makes such a god awful sound

but my love for you knows no bounds

come after you like a basset hound

 

Cause I can’t give you up my baby

I can’t give you up my love

Oh no no I can’t give you up my baby

Oh no I can’t give you up my love

No  can’t ever get enough

 

Battle wounds never heal up quite right

Low blows and tip toes what a sad little sight

My head never knows how to deal with my heart

It’s tearing me apart

 

lay it on heavy and bring me in

down in my soul hoping that I’ll win

I’ve never been one to give into the fright

of loneliness but could you spend the night?

 

prechorus

 

CHORUS

 

guitar solo

 

CHORUS

Can't Help Myself

 

Was I out of my head, was I out of my mind?

Couldn’t help myself from falling

Shoot for the stars to get a glimpse of the life everyone else is living

 

I can’t help myself from falling x2

Could you?

 

Was I out of my head, am I out of my mind?

Can’t shake this feeling of dread instilled in the bak of my mind

Looks pretty good on paper but practice make perfect.

I know this is worth it my dear

Am I out of my head?

Just leave me here to lose my mind

 

Wasn’t I just a queen, sitting tall on her throne?

Couldn’t help myself from falling

Living life like my dreams, young and royal

Seduced by the diamonds shine and the gold

 

I can’t help myself from falling x2

Could you?

 

CHORUS

 

I can’t help myself from falling x2

Could you?

Mad in the Moonlight

 

You’ve got me mad in the moonlight oh oh oh

So mad in the moonlight oh oh oh

So mad in the moonlight oh oh oh

Mad in the moonlight

 

I don’t need no potion or no spell to bring

Life this body that I’m living

I’m knocking on your grave, won’t you let me in

please please please, you are my favorite sin

 

I don’t want to dance upon your starlit stage

I see you parading ‘round your masquerade

Once the faces fall and the words don’t hold up true

The luster don’t quite shine as bright

I end up howling at the moon

 

CHORUS

 

I don’t need no witches brew or voodoo doll

I don’t want to sacrifice my soul

I’m knocking on your grave, won’t you let me in

please please please, you are my favorite sin

 

I don’t want the midnight hour to take my heart

reckless, driven to tear the whole damn thing apart

Once the faces fall and the words don’t hold up true

The luster don’t quite shine as bright

I end up howling at the moon

 

CHORUS

 

*guitar solo*

 

I don’t need no potion or no spell

I don’t want your masquerade from hell  x2

 

CHORUS

Preachers Son

 

You can find him on the run (repeated throughout the song)

 

He ain’t no preacher’s son his momma cries for him at night

(you can find him on the run)

prays to every god above that he’ll find that holy light 

(you can find him on the run)

first taste of sin that boy knew he’d never do no right 

(you can find him on the run)

never obeyed much ain’t that just the bad boy’s plight

 

well that boy’s too far to look back now

he’s to insane just don’t ask how

 

He ain’t no preacher’s son he leaves a trail of broken hearts for fun 

(you can find him on the run)

You’d have to see it for yourself always has one hand on his gun 

(you can find him on the run)

He ain’t harmless, he’s full of charm 

(you can find him on the run) 

locked and loaded of the next unlucky one 

(you can find him on the run)

gets his kicks from his tricks has his tricks gets his fix you won’t find him praying you can find him on the run (you can find him on the run)

 

Darkness ain’t no foe of his that boy he likes to live in the shadows

(you can find him on the run) 

Sneaking through back doors alleyways so his daddy never knows

(you can find him on the run)

quick shot, self taught, bet all he got to win the lot

(you can find him on the run)

He ain’t afraid of the storm he’s electric to the touch

 

refrain

 

CHORUS

 

Bad boy bad boy whatcha gonna do? (repeat)

when they come for you

that boy is running running running running running

(repeat and ad lib)

Silver Lining

I’m gonna find a mountain to climb

I’m gonna find that silver lining

 

People beat your drums

people you follow

whiskey laden tongues

people built so hollow

 

hold on to hope

 

I’m gonna find a silver lining

I’m gonna find a kingdom to die in

save me the throne

give me the power

I’ll shoot straight with my gun

I don’t have time to borrow

I’m gonna find that silver lining

 

I’m gonna find a heart to call mine

I’ve room enough for the silver lining

 

The fuss of the room

the heat of the space

the blood on the door

start running the race

 

hold on to hope

 

CHORUS

 

Are you broke?

Ain’t it mean?

You got the look, need to be seen

 

Are you scared?

I’m petrified

by the look in their eyes

 

x2

 

CHORUS

Ticking Time Bomb

 

Baby careful as you come

I can feel the fire rising once again

My fingers are boiling

My vision’s turning red

These violent delights and violent trends

These violent delights don’t make no friends 

 

Baby careful as you come

I’m a self-destructive careless woman

Thriving in the ruins

Looking for the next delusion 

These violent delights and violent trends

These violent delights don’t make no friends 

 

Come dance with me So wild and free

 

I’m a ticking time bomb baby, I’m a ticking time bomb baby

Tick tick boom Tick tick boom Tick tick boom boom

I’m a ticking time bomb baby, I’m a ticking time bomb baby

Tick tick boom Tick tick boom Tick tick boom boom

tick tick boom boom boom

 

Baby careful where you run

I’m a seeker who’s so unforgiving

My tongue’s got the taste

I’m ready chase

my heart is on fire

playing my ace

 

Come dance with me So wild and free

 

CHORUS

 

My wick is lit, burning, fire is angry

my fuse is short, burns out too soon 

(repeat until satisfied)

 

tick tick boom

tick tick boom

tick tick boom

Undercover Lover

You’ve got an undercover lover

they’re not like the others

honey dripping from their tongue

 

whispers in the moonlight

promises so bright

’til the rising of the morning sun

 

don’t talk about it

 

You got a honey on the down low

his loving goes down real slow

you’re gonna keep it all to yourself

 

because unlike all the others

you’re undercover lover

won’t put you up on a shelf

 

you’ve got a broke up heart need some gentle hands

won’t give it away give it away

you’ve got an open mind with a wandering plan

won’t give it away give it away

there’s a chance for your midnight romance 

you’ve got an undercover lover

won’t give it away

 

You’ve got an undercover lover

your sister and your mother

don’t need to know about what you’ve done

 

Chasing love past  midnight

kisses under starlight 

until the rising of the morning sun

 

You’ve got a sweetie with a halo

Praising his angel glow

to the heavens and back you go

 

Still got the heat underneath

brewing below your feet

The pressure’s gonna make it blow

 

CHORUS

Won't Let You Go

I ain't ever gonna give you up no no no no. 

I ain't ever gonna give you up no no no no. 

 

Honey, the feeling that you give me is so lovely. 

I yearn for it, I fiend for it, dream about it. 

 

My love needs a nurturer, provider. 

I'm the queen, need someone to stand beside me. 

To ride with, won't bite the hand that feeds. 

 

Ebb and flow. 

Head to toe.

I can feel it in my fingertips, touch me and I lose my wits. 

Loving me just like a good man should. OW. 

 

I ain't ever gonna give you up now, I ain't ever gonna give you up go no no no no no no. 

I ain't ever gonna give you up now oh no no no I won't let you go oh no. 

I ain't ever gonna give you up no no no no 

 

It seems, love is something that requires a team. 

I'm living with a fresh start. 

Dancing on the stars, the cosmos have aligned, my heart is shining we're on fire. 

 

No control, emotion overload. 

Shower me in sweet serenity, bring out all the best in me, loving me just like a good man should. OW!  

 

CHORUS

 

 I ain't ever gonna give you up no no no no  

I ain't ever gonna give you up no no no no 

(I ain't ever gonna) Ebb and flow  

Emotion overload (I ain't ever gonna) 

I feel it in my head to my toes oh no control (I ain't ever gonna) 

I ain't ever gonna give you up no no no no (I ain't ever gonna) 

I ain't ever gonna give you up no no

Honey What

Honey What, honey who

I’m not gonna forget about you

Honey what honey who

I’m not gonna forget

 

I see the green and gold

Everyone’s reaching, tryin to thrill their soul

 

Honey What…

 

You learn to walk then run

Then you’re off to search for the perfect sun

 

Honey What…

 

Say what you’re gonna say, I’ll only listen

 

you need something to remind you

that there is beauty in the pain

Ever tried walking on the safe road

there ain’t no glory to be gained

You need something to believe in

The magic’s making you insane

Ever tried walking on water

Without the heart to float the brain?

 

Honey What…

 

You’ve heard the stories told

The king was up and thrown off his throne

His crown was made of dirt

His robe nothing more than a battered t-shirt

 

you’ve got imagination, you can build a nation

 

You watch the clock hands turn

and the candles burn

No-one wants to pay any mind

To the dwindling reality of time

 

Say what you want to say I’ll only listen

 

Chorus

 

Honey What…

 

instrumental

 

Honey What…

Money

Oh money money. x2

 

Drop a penny watch the hungry flock. 

Lick their lips, insatiable, won't stop. 

Clambering to satisfy their need. 

The rich man silently consumed by greed. 

Gonna watch it burn down. 

Oh money money. 

 

(oh) I've got money on my mind when I wake up, money on my mind when I go to sleep. 

(oh) Money on my mind when I'm walking, money when I close my eyes to dream. 

(oh) The machine is an unforgivable monster, don't want to get caught up in the scene. 

Money money money money runs everything. 

I've got money on my mind when I wake up, money on my mind when I go to sleep. 

Oh oh. 

 

I have seen a poor man change his ways, 

the prospect of his ruins rise from flames. 

Tell me now how do you tame a fire 

when it starts flicking licking 'round your hearts desire. 

Gonna watch it burn down. 

 

Chorus 

 

Born and raised, 

loved and praised, 

reveled in the naïve days. 

Oh mercy me the lust and greed can hold a man bring him to his knees. 

Money money can be so funny can taste like honey. 

Slips right into your veins with ease. 

 

(oh) I've got money on my mind when I wake up, money on my mind when I go to sleep. 

(oh) Money on my mind when I'm walking, money when I close my eyes to dream. 

(oh) Money money money money runs everything. 

I've got money on my mind when I wake up, money on my mind when I go to sleep. 

Money on my mind when I'm walking, money when I close my eyes to dream.

Shadow

 

Ooh baby

Sneaking ‘round me like a shadow now

I can’t believe the things you’ve done

this raging battle’s far from won

You said, I said, she said settle down

We throw our words round just like knives

Ain’t nobody playing nice

It just ain’t right

 

I try no to look right at the core

Afraid of what I might see

Baby what are you yearning for

and if you can’t get it from me

 

You’ll have to be my shadow shadow oh my

following my shadow shadow oh my every move

shadow shadow oh my

don’t get too close, ‘cause I don’t want to get rid of you

 

ooh baby what the levee breaks the water roars

tampering with the design wasn’t such a good idea in hindsight

don’t give much thought to who’s right or wrong

opinions are a dime a dozen

and I can’t do much with ten cents

oh no I can’t do much with ten cents

 

what ever happened to our rapport

the bigger picture the grand scheme

baby what are you yearning for

and if you can’t get it from me

 

CHORUS

 

Shadow live Shadow die x2

Shadow give shadow try x2

 

repeat

Sweet Eyes

 

Sweet eyes, old soul

Boy I want you to take, to take control

My heart’s been broke but you know, oh you know

That love, that love don’t hurt

when the one that you’re loving is worth it

 

boy I’ll give you some of my time if you promise to be kind

 

boy I want you to love me

take me and make me your only one

and I want you to hold me

from the rising to the setting of the sun

and find me in your dreams

boy I want to be the only one

the only one that you see

boy I want you to love me faithfully

faithfully faithfully

 

Take hold, go slow

If I’m keeping this love, I want to be sure

Sweet talk in the midnight glow

Starting to take me over, want to give you my all

 

prechorus

 

CHORUS

 

and if I love you will I stay

I would love you anyway

you can tease me if you want, I won’t mind the chase

 

But promise me you’ll come back home

When all is said and done

you know where you’re meant to stay

I’ll be waiting for you

 

Sweet eyes, old soul

starting to take me over, take control

My heart is yours

how those sweet eyes make my lips curve

 

oh ohhh ooohhh

Train

 

What if I miss the train this time around

What if it rolls right in, then back out again, and I don’t get on?

What if my dreams take me somewhere I don’t want to go?

Somewhere I don’t fit in, get changed and molded, don’t recognize myself anymore

 

Aren’t we all just chugging along x2

 

What if this train misses my stop?

What if I’m just a prisoner of momentum locked inside this big ‘ol box

All of these people, unfamiliar faces, traveling to far off distant places

Maybe they feel trapped too, but learn to make due

survival can come at such high a cost

 

CHORUS

 

oohhhhhhs

 

What if this train don’t have room for one more lonely soul

What if I’m left at the station, thin for patience, with nothing to hope for?

 

CHORUS

Who

Who told you what to do

Depending on the motions to make it through

Who told you what to say

Ya got a broke up heart in a beat down place

and I can’t

and I won’t

sit back and watch you choke

and I can’t

and I won’t watch the bridges burn down in smoke

down in smoke

 

Oh pretty baby, aren’t you just searching

Aren’t you just learning along the way

Far from the railroad tracks

too late to look back

I’ve got a dollar to spare if you’re coming my way

 

Oh mama told you

To play nicely

but playing nicely won’t get you very far

That learned behavior won’t be your savior

When the devil makes his rounds

and you’re left to curse that which you bear

 

CHORUS

 

Oh daddy told you

Bout those wrongdoers

playing with your heart and kicking dirt up in your face

That learned behavior

will never bode well

with the gentlemen of wit

and the woman of good taste

 

CHORUS

 

Oh pretty baby, aren’t you just searching

Aren’t you just learning along the way

Far from the railroad tracks

too late to look back

I’ve got a dollar to spare if you’re coming my way

 

Oh pretty baby there ain’t no safe place

rabid and relentless when they’re hot on your tail

oh all the heart they lack 

they’ll never look back

don’t hold your breath for promises they’ll strike on the exhale

 

CHORUS

Young Lady

Young Lady tell me now how do you understand 

The world you act like you’ve got it in the palm of your hand

Young lady say that you’re born to take a stand

But suit and ties don’t smile upon a woman with a determined hand

 

Young lady when you paint your lips up scarlet red 

Are you hoping your warpaint goes right to your head

knock them down stand on the ground that you claim

 

Don’t you know that they’ll remember your name

they’ll remember your name 

 

Young lady tell me, young lady tell me

about the truth and the hope that you’re fed

they try to teach you, they try to preach ya

But you won’t listen to the words that they said

 

You won’t cry mercy, It’s just a word see

for the ones that’ve given up on the game

You may be a father’s daughter

but you aren’t without a plan

 

cause they’ll remember your name

 

Young lady walk the streets like you’re waking the dead

Knock down the tombs rattle the bones turning them heads

got the ghouls saying you’re one in the same

don’t you know that they’ll remember your name

 

CHORUS

 

Soon you’ll be taking out the kingdom name by name

Master of all you deal the cards you play the game

Down on their knees not a soul stood to declaim

don’t you know that you’ll remember your name

 

Young lady heed these words some people can’t be tamed

Become a marvel and then bask in their acclaim

Do no evil and evade yourself from shame

Don’t you know that they’ll remember your name

 

CHORUS
