I've got a girl and when she's angry She puts a gun against my head And then one day she went and shot me down She pulled the trigger now I'm dead Oh Oh, Oh Oh Escaped the scene and on the run Oh Oh, Oh Oh The cops are coming and she's done She doesn't know how much I need her They say in love that there is pain She had to make some kind of sacrifice It's just a bullet in my brain At the trial she was judged a monster They gave her for 25 to life But I don't care that she just shot me cold I want to make that girl my wife Oh Oh, Oh Oh She's just the kind of girl I need Oh Oh, Oh Oh Shot to the head will make you bleed She doesn't know how much I need her They say in love that there is pain She had to make a ritual sacrifice It's just a bullet in my brain Now she's in prison and restricted But will not stop to kill again A smuggled gun and brutal memories Makes for a bullet in a brain Oh Oh, Oh Oh She couldn't stop her raging way Oh Oh, Oh Oh The law's a gonna make her pay And now she's facing death electric And they're all there to flick the switch Yeah I don't care that they will fry her brain Cause that's my girl the crazy bitch Oh Oh, Oh Oh As she takes her final breath Oh Oh, Oh Oh I sit and watch her sexy death And now she's with me in the after life The quantum soup from which we came We'll be forever shooting mysteries It's just called love it's not insane And now she knows how much I needed her They say in love that there is pain And I forgive her cause I love this girl It's just a bullet in my brain Oh Oh, Oh Oh They say in love that there is pain Oh Oh, Oh Oh And it's just a bullet in my brain

Melody, Where are you My Melody, I’m dreaming of you Verse Right beside me, I’ll be waiting Fevering, Anticipating Don’t forget me, Contemplating Forever dying, Resuscitating If you love me, I’ll adore you Give me something, I implore you Chorus Melody, Where are you? Can’t forget me, I’m dreaming of you Makeshift heroes come and go And I’m yet to see your face again Melody, melody, Here in my mind Stay with me melody, Those makeshift heroes will fall Melody, Where are you Don’t forget me, I’m dreaming of you Verse I’ve got problems, Need attention It’s so bad, I’ll never mention While I need you, Don’t forget me Have to have you, Never let me Down, you’ll be here, In my upstream Out of my life, Into my dreams Chorus Melody, Where are you? Can’t forget me, I’m dreaming of you Makeshift heroes come and go And I’m yet to see your face again Melody, melody, Here in my mind Stay with me melody, Makeshift heroes cannot Love you or hurt you cause we are entwined Be here my melody, Those makeshift heroes will Crumble and fall

Your eyes, disguised Tried to understand you Hello, goodbye you're gone Goodbye, hello After all we've been through You still keep hidden your secret And I heard you whisper heard you cry That I'd never love you And you'd die Hello, goodbye it's about that time I keep on telling myself Cause I saw you breaking Saw you weep As I felt you crumble you said For his stone cold heart is nothing without me And his bed lays bare at night I wished that he could be different How did he end up like this? I can pretend it no longer I found him broken and cold But my stone cold heart is nothing without you And my bed lays bare at night I've grown a heart of indifference I didn't want it like this I thought my soul it was older I don't know what it's become For my stone cold heart has no resemblance To the one I had with you And my stone cold love is only whispering For the winds of change, and you

Verse It’s the kind of trouble We all get into It’s gonna burst your bubble This one last time It’s the kind of memory That scars your brain It’s the kind of feeling That just burns inside Chorus Cause I’m the last man standing And I’ve got hell to pay Cause I’m the man who’ll walk this earth And give the letters on judgement day Yeah I’m the last man breathing When there’s no other plan With no one left to follow Here’s the ballad of the last used man Verse Ain’t no use of talking When no one’s breathing There’s no use of looking If everything’s gone When it comes to get you You better show your face I know you’re sick of hiding It’ll tear you up inside Chorus Cause I’m the last man standing And I’ve got death on my side Cause I’m the man who’ll walk this earth And take it for one last ride Yeah I’m the last man breathing When there’s no other plan With no one left to follow It’s the ballad of the last used man It’s the ballad of the last used man It’s the ballad of the last used man

As you lay there Staring Staring With those magic eyes I’m listless listless And I’ve got no disguise I need you I want you In my arms tonight And If I lay me down Baby in my arms It’s moonlight In my arms tonight It’s sunlight And it’s in my arms It’s your light It’s your light And it’s in my arms It’s moonlight It’s sunlight It’s your light And it’s in my arms tonight I’m watching Waiting Waiting Come home with me tonight I’m hopeless Hopeless In this tragic light To have you have you In my arms tonight And If I lay me down Baby in my arms It’s moonlight In my arms tonight It’s sunlight And it’s in my arms It’s your light It’s your light And it’s in my arms It’s moonlight It’s sunlight It’s your light And it’s in my arms tonight

I could’ve been a dreamer I ended up a schemer I ended up a hard-nosed man I should’ve been a writer I ended up a fighter With some hard made plans I should’ve been your lover I ended up another And it makes no sense Cause I should’ve just been home loving you I ended up angry I wanted you to thank me But it all went wrong I’m fighting with my ego Baby where did we go Cause I’m so alone I know I treat you badly I want to love you madly And it makes no sense So I’m gonna come on home straight to you Girl I want you to teach me Baby you can reach me I’ll be a better man I want to be your lover Don’t want to be another Want you to understand I’ll write you a letter It’ll say I’ll treat you better And that I promise you That I’m gonna stay on here next to you And baby that’s what I intend to do Cause baby you’re my sweetheart Why did ever we part? Why did you have to go? You were my best friend And our love will never lessen It was just too strong That you’re in a better place now Is the only way I’ll face how That you died too young And now I’ll just keep on loving you Cause that’s the only thing that I can do

Verse So I woke up this morning with a picture in my head Everything right behind me was like a dream instead A hazy picture of a girl who felt just like you feel, although She thought he knew me and this is what she said Chorus When I looked up and I saw you it just felt so right And this is the first day of my life Verse You looked in my eyes and you held out your hand Asleep in my dreams I had hoped and I had planned You spoke in a language I couldn’t even hear although One look from you and I would just understand. You said You’re the first thing and the last thing that enters my mind And this is just the first day of my life’ Bridge This is a dream, inside of a dream... just like I hoped it would be A dream of you, it enters my mind... more I thought I could find Verse A hazy puff of winter to just disappear You were just a memory I’d rather have right here And I got the shivers right up through my spine That was just the first day of my life So I woke up this morning with a picture in my head Everything right behind me was like a dream instead A hazy picture of a girl who felt just like you feel, although She thought he knew me and this is what she said Chorus When I looked up and I saw you it just felt so right And this is the first day of my life You’re the first thing and last thing that enters my mind And this is just the first day of my life When I looked up and I saw you it just felt so right And this is the first day of my life Wishing my dreams would come to be alive And this is the first day of my life
