Song Lyrics

Ain't Like 'Em

She ain't like the other ole neighbors down the road
She got a big ole pistol under her pills from Mexico
Ain't afraid to pull out her big guns on any ole man
Talkin' big words fast cash who's bold with just a black and tan

He ain't like the other ole men drinkin' in the bar
Had a wife who loved him, no need for another on his arm
And he'll tell you a story so deep that'll show your soul
That in this world we came in we're all gonna leave alone

It ain't like it ain't life
It ain't like it ain't life

They ain't like the rest of us walking long the road
With big places, big faces to see nobody waitin' at home
With your luck I bet I'd catch you sayin' it'll never be me
But be careful what you don't wish for will be your destiny

It ain't like it ain't life
It ain't like it ain't life

We ain't like any of 'em that you used to know
Cottage White

Cottage white red rust in the walls 
Summer skies in the bedroom baby it's Not enough 
I'll never be as happy as I was when I was a Teen Ooooo 

When we were young 
And you just let me be 
Now happiness is just a memory 
And I'm surprised that we all still breathe 

Oooooo (2x) 

Cottage white brown mold grew in the corners of my mind 
Cloudy skies all around I just can't seem to Get out 
When I was younger I made this all my Dream 
But now that I'm in it I wish I could just leave 

If I could just go back in time 
I surely would have made you mine 

Someday

I’m walking out 
Don’t beg me to stay 
It’s been a good time 
But I gotta get away 

Saying everything that’s mine is yours 
Yes I know that’s what we were working towards 
But I know at the end of the day 
I’m gonna make it on my own 
Someday 

I’m smarter now 
So I know what to say 
Can’t talk about 
That night that I had with that man 
Or that weekend with all my friends 
Or that night in Reno when you went away 
Or when I saw you drinking way too much and said, “Slow down, You don’t need that stuff” and your reply was “You can leave me any day” 

I should have known 
that I’d have to go 
I didn’t think it’d be today 
But it’s better than someday 

I should have known 
that I’d have to go 
I didn’t think it’d be today 
But it’s better than someday 

I’m happy now 
Without you in my way 
It’s been a good time 
We’re better off this way

Shadow

It's only black or white 
I'm always wrong and you're always right 
And nobody ever wins we've lost our innocence 
I'm crawling on the floor cause I can't walk Anymore 
I'm disabled by my love for you 

I've lost my will to fight 
So I just keep my own opinions 
I'm just a shadow in the light shining on you 
But I'm more scared to go than be who I am now 
I'll never let you know 
Cause we'll never be safe with the truth out 

That I love you happy more than I love myself 
That I could never leave cause I know Nothing else 
That you're everything and nothing to me 
I'm in hate and in love with you equally 

Never thought we'd live this way 
In past emotions we'd always stay 
Never wanted to be lonely we committed Suicide 
We're so scared to go and face who we've Become now 
We'll never let each other know 
Cause it'll be the end when the truth's out 

That I love you happy more than I love myself 
That I could never leave cause I know Nothing else 
That you're everything and nothing to me 
I'm in hate and in love with you equally 

It's only black or white 
I'm always wrong and you're always right

Thank You
Your fear of showing love

Was what dragged us down

Oh

Your selfish ways was killing me

I wanted to live the dream that others would brag about

Until you showed me all that it would mean

 

So I want to say

Thank You for leaving me

First I was sad then I was mad

Till I found out how it feels to be free

Wanna say Thank you for leaving me

First I was sad then I was mad

Until I found out how it feels to be free

 

Don’t ever have to be someone that I think you would wanna love

Despite all the games you know that I don’t compare to her

Just cause I put out the same don’t mean that I should have to put with the way

The things you do the way you act and the things you’d say

 

So I want to say

Thank You for leaving me

First you were missed then I was pissed

Till I found out how it feels to be free

Wanna say Thank you for leaving me

First I you were missed then I was pissed

Until I found out how it feels to be free

 

La da di daDah do do

Di Da

 

Thank You for leaving me

First I was sad then I was mad

Till I found out how it feels to be free

Wanna say Thank you for leaving me

First I was sad then I was mad

Until I found out how it feels to be free

 

 

 

Bad Days

Bad days everybody's had a bad day the kind where you cry about it cause you can't leave this city
Sad days everybody's had a sad day the kind when you lie about it cause sad's still gotta look pretty

Cause you never know who's watching you
And you never know who is who
oooo
In this ole game of life
Just smile back when they smile at you cause it's not polite to not mask your truth
Ooo
when perception's all that's real in this life
Ooo that's the deal
Cause if they can't like it baby then you might as well not be real

Bad days everybody's had a bad the kind when you forget about it cause nobody wants to be pitied
But bad days you gotta learn from a bad day or even laugh about it cause in the end that's all that matters in this life

Ooo that's the deal
And if you don't like it baby then you might as well not be real

Bad days everybody's had 'em
Bad days everybody's had to
Bad days everybody's had to smile it off
Hey

Bad days everybody's had 'em 
Bad days everybody's had to 
Bad days everybody's had to smile it off 

Dangerous

I'm dancing on the edge with a knife in both hands
I'm living like we're nothing ooo I'm dangerous

Makin' wars cause I'm bored
Just need a little love wanna feel adored
Ain't afraid to take all that's yours
I'm lonely and dangerous

Breaking homes breaking hearts
That's what happens baby when he's not smart
Make a grown man think he's young
Make him think it's all real but it's just fun
He'll realize I'm a devil when I'm done
Ooo I'm dangerous

Cause I ain't going down without a fight
Life's a whole lot better when he don't have me cause I'm the truth that'll set him free
I'm dangerous
Ooooo
Ooooo

Make a grown man think he's young 
Make him think it's all real but it's just fun 
He'll realize I'm a devil when I'm done 

I'm dancing on the edge with a knife in both hands I'm livin' like we're nothing
Ooooo
I'm dangerous
Ooooo 

Love Song

It’s not fair what you do to me 
You know I can’t say no cause I can’t 
Despite all your wrongs I’m weak 
That’s why I hate love cause I hate defeat 
But you got me singing a love song 
Mmmm 
A love song 
Mmmm 
You know you’re wrong for making me love you 
It aint right what Im bout to do 
But when we get cause you know I’ll blame you 
It’s crazy what love makes you do 
That’s why I hate love cause I hate the truth 
But you got me singing a love song 
Mmmm 
A true song 
Mmmm 
You know you’re wrong for making me want you

Morality

I should have lied 
Instead now I’m a failure 
Why didn’t I 
Morality got me nowhere 
Tell me why are the heroes the homeless 
And why am I waiting for the nice guy to still finish 

When the villains are up there when I am down 
Honesty got me nowhere yet I’m still around 
Holding on to this nothing that everyone says don’t exist 
Except that man in the corner preaching out false reason 

I believed in 
I believed in 
Ooooo 

I was so wrong 
To ever believe in 
All your lies 
I was young and naïve then 
And afraid I’d miss out on something that I could never take 

When the villians are up there when I am down 
Honesty got me nowhere yet I’m still around 
Holding on to this nothing that everyone says don’t exist 
Except that man in the corner preaching out false reason 

I believed in 
I believed in 
Ooooo

Better
I hope to never see your face in a crowded room
I'm waitin' for the day when this song don't remind me of you

But I'll never fake, never take no
Never break, never wait for anyone like you
But I'll never fake, never take no
Never break, never wait for anyone like you

I messed it up cause I can't go and I won't be the one
I gave it up cause I dreamed for better things and you weren't one

So keep that piece of my heart that you took when you went and broke it
You know I'll survive without it baby you know I was never perfect
But at least I'm doing one thing right in my life this time

I'm livin' better, better, better, better, better without you in it
I'm livin' better, better, better, better, better without you in it

I hope you hear my name right before this song comes on
I'm hopin' that you'll say I should have treated her better all along

But I'll never fake, never take no
Never break, never wait for anyone like you
But I'll never fake, never take no
Never break, never wait for anyone like you

I messed it up cause I can't go and I won't be the one
I gave it up cause I dreamed for better things and you weren't one

So keep that piece of my heart that you took when you went and broke it
You know I'll survive without it baby you know I was never perfect
But at least I'm doing one thing right in my life this time

I'm livin' better, better, better, better, better without you in it
I'm livin' better, better, better, better, better without you in it
 

Dead Romance
Is this what it’s like?

To be alive

I reached the point of no return

And I don’t know if I’ve been burned from

The burnt bridges in my life

Thinking you were wrong

And I was right

Maybe I messed up

Either way it’s too late for us

 

Cause baby I’m old with regret

Wishing I could hold you and just forget

Since I can’t I’ll just be home but homesick

Wishin’ you were mine and I didn’t hurt you like I did

Can’t go back to when we had a chance

Wishin I could have a shot at real romance

Now I realize all the things I could have had were in your cold hands
I’m a fool for a dead romance

 

Gone, gone, gone

I’m a fool for a dead romance

Gone, gone, gone

I’m a fool for a dead romance

 

Is this what it’s like to fantasize?

About a love that never was alive outside my mind or distance

With time I clearly lost my sight Thinkin’ I was wrong to ever leave your side

But time’s the harshest judge

Makes us think we were in love

 

And now

 

I’m old with regret

Wishing I could hold you and just forget
 

Since I can’t I’ll just be home but homesick

Wishin’ you were mine and I didn’t hurt you like I did

Can’t go back to when we had a chance

Wishin I could have a shot at real romance

Now I realize all the things I could have had were in your cold hands
I’m a fool for a dead romance

 

Gone, gone, gone

I’m a fool for a dead romance

  

Cause baby I’m old with regret

Wishing I could hold you and just forget

Since I can’t I’ll just be home but homesick

Wishin’ you were mine and I didn’t hurt you like I did

Can’t go back to when we had a chance

Wishin’ I could have a shot at real romance

Now I realize all the things I could have had were in your cold hands
I’m a fool for a dead romance

 

Gone, gone, gone

I’m a fool for a dead romance

Gone, gone, gone

I’m a fool for a dead romance

 

 

Is this what it’s like?

Secrets

Money keeps secrets 
Daddies can't fix it 
I'm so bad 

Going out solo 
Nobody has to know 
I'm so sad 

Hiding in the corner when 
You all drinking 
I'm so sad 

Can’t get really deep 
Can't say what I mean 
The deal that we have 

And I 'm pushing us together 
So I can't fall 
Let you think that this was all your call 
You can call it wrong or call me fake 
And I'll do all it takes 
So we won’t fall 
You can question that and it's okay 
It won’t matter anyway 

Putting on my makeup 
After I get some 
I'm a mess 

Hoping that he won't know 
I reached a new low 
I'm so sad 

Pretending in the corner when 
I should be crying 
I'm so mad 

I know what will happen when 
We stop lying 
We’ll lose all that we have 

So I'll push us together so it won't fall 
Let you think that this was all your call 
You can call it wrong or call me fake 
And I'll do all it takes 
So it won’t fall you can question that and it's okay 
As long as you don't slip away, stay 

Money keeps secrets 
Daddies can't fix it 
I'm so bad

Monkey Mind
When I get close to the edge
Monkey Mind says
You’re too close to the edge
Don’t look at the view from the ledge
Don’t want you to go and leave me to fly

When I get close to the edge
The Doubtful Mind says
You’re too close to the edge
The Doubtful Mind says
You don’t deserve to be lead
And if you go I’ll surely take you with me when I die

So tell ‘em you’re not afraid to die
Tell ‘em you’re ready for change
Cast your fears aside
Cause you can’t fly with the weight of the world on your wings
And you know if you never let go you’ll never be free
And the only way out to see is to believe

When I get close to the edge
Monkey Mind says
You’re too close to the edge
The Doubtful Mind says
Don’t listen to your heart but your head

And that’s when I know I’m ready to give flyin’ a try

Smile
Different towers rise up in our sleep 
So wake up 
They can't take our souls from rising 
They can't stop us cause we're tryin' to live on our own 

I know it's hard 
when you get so far but still can't reach the stars 
I know it's hard 
When you do everythin' you can 
Hey! 

But you gotta keep on smilin' 
Even though it's hard 
And you can't ever stop trying 
Or you'll never leave from where you are 

But you gotta keep on smilin' 
Even though it's hard 
And you can't ever stop trying 
Or you'll never leave from where you are
