WALK ON THE WATER

I don’t want a kiss in the dark
I don’t want your lips on my heart
This is what I’ve needed to say
Sorry if it blows you away

Baby you’re a criminal
It’s like you got a gun when I look in your eyes
I’m sick of bein’ cynical
So Imma pull the trigger, and put ya on trial

Cuz I know it’s not me, baby
I’m the man of your dreams, lately
But ya pretty blue eyes mistake me… oh

If you’re gonna make me walk on the water
I’m gonna let you drown
Say that you love me, oh well
Keep thinkin’ of me, that’s hell
If you’re gonna make me walk on the water
I’m gonna let you drown
Say that you’ll haunt me, oh well
You’ll always want me; that’s hell
You say that you tried
I say that you lied
Beggin’ for a kiss goodbye
Save it for the next guy

Blame it on the radio
I know it ain’t fun when you’re turnin’ that dial
It’s not what I would say to you
You can drive all night, but you’re wastin’ your time

Cuz it’s not about you, baby
What you’re tryin’ to do is crazy
If you wanna feel blue, chase me… oh

If you’re gonna make me walk on the water
I’m gonna let you drown
Say that you love me, oh well
Keep thinkin’ of me, that’s hell
If you’re gonna make me walk on the water
I’m gonna let you drown
Say that you’ll haunt me, oh well
You’ll always want me; that’s hell
You say that you tried
I say that you lied
Beggin’ for a kiss goodbye
Save it for the next guy

I jumped in the water to get you
Now I walk on the water, I bet you
Think that you could do it to
If it’s so damn easy
Why don’t you… why don’t you… why don’t you?

If you’re gonna make me walk on the water
I’m gonna let you drown
Say that you love me, oh well
Keep thinkin’ of me, that’s hell
If you’re gonna make me walk on the water
I’m gonna let you drown
Say that you’ll haunt me, oh well
You’ll always want me; that’s hell
You say that you tried
I say that you lied
Beggin’ for a kiss goodbye
Save it for the next guy

I don’t want a kiss in the dark
I don’t want a piece of your heart
This is all I needed to say
Sorry if it blows you away
I don’t want your kiss in the dark
I don’t want your lips on my heart
This is all I needed to say
Sorry if I blow you away
Had to blow, had to blow you away
Had to blow, had to blow you away
Had to blow, had to blow you away

Track Name: Bottle of James
BOTTLE OF JAMES

You only kiss me
When your breath is stained with whiskey
Stumblin’ in my arms
Bright lights, big city

Shot glass blues
You buy your liquor
And I’ll pay your dues
I’m such a sinner
But ya know that you are too

Now pull your body close
And let me inside
The fire’s on your lips
But the pleasure’s all mine
The night is always young
Forget what ya do
The preacher says it’s wrong
But he’s drinkin’ me too
They keep crossin’ it, they keep crossin’ it
They keep crossin’ the line
My kiss is like a drug
You welcome the pain
You never had a love
You never had a love
Like a bottle of James

You’re such a rebel
‘Til you go drinkin’ with the devil
You’ll confess to anything
White light, hell’s angel

Don’t black out
You’re under oath
Until the stars go down
This shit is gold
I’m gonna hold ya to your words

Now pull your body close
And let me inside
The fire’s on your lips
But the pleasure’s all mine
The night is always young
Forget what ya do
The preacher says it’s wrong
But he’s drinkin’ me too
They keep crossin’ it, they keep crossin’ it
They keep crossin’ the line
My kiss is like a drug
You welcome the pain
You never had a love
You never had a love
Like a bottle of James

With God as your witness
And me as your weakness
Tell me what ya want, don’t try to keep it a secret
A skeleton closet
Manhattan is a watchin’
And Jameson don’t love you, he just wants what’s in your pocket

Now pull your body close
And let me inside
The fire’s on your lips
But the pleasure’s all mine
The night is always young
Forget what ya do
The preacher says it’s wrong
But he’s drinkin’ me too
They keep crossin’ it, they keep crossin’ it
They keep crossin’ the line
My kiss is like a drug
You welcome the pain
You never had a love
You never had a love
Like a bottle of James

Track Name: Rolling Stone
ROLLING STONE

I wanna be on the cover of rolling stone
Cuz then my daddy could finally come back home
Won’t have to tell him all the things he should already know
If that were me on the cover of rolling stone

I wanna have a whole page to remember the story
A touch of that fame and a moment of glory
Mock my name but you’ll never ignore me
I’ll rock myself to sleep

Cuz I’ve met a lot of people along my way
Who would never wanna listen to shit I’d say
But every newsstand Bitty in New York City’s gonna know this face

I been broke like a record
Played and skipped and dust has collected
Bet you’re gonna listen to my song
When I’m loved like a rolling stone
I was raised by my mother
Packed my bags and ran from the gutter
Don’t look back I won’t be coming home
‘Til I’m loved like a rolling stone

I wanna pose for a picture with my guitar
Show all the folks back home that I’ve gone far
Won’t have to play a single chord to be a rock star
If that were me on the cover with my guitar

Everybody gives love when you’re rich and your famous
When just the other day noone knew what your name is
Blessed are the meek who inherit the shameless
I guess that’s how it is

Well I met a lot of people along my way
Who would never wanna listen to shit I’d say
Now every newsstand Bitty in New York City’s gonna know this face

I been broke like a record
Played and skipped and dust has collected
But you’re gonna listen to my song
When I’m loved like a rolling stone
I was raised by my mother
Packed my bags and ran from the gutter
Don’t look back I won’t be coming home
‘Til I’m loved like a rolling stone

Mama never had a sweet sixteen
All she wanted was the best for me
Gonna see me on a magazine
Cuz mama never had a sweet sixteen
Mama never had a sweet sixteen
Mama never had a sweet sixteen

I been broke like a record
Played and skipped and dust has collected
But you’re gonna listen to my song
When I’m loved like a rolling stone
I was raised by my mother
Packed my bags and ran from the gutter
Don’t look back I won’t be coming home
‘Til I’m loved like a rolling stone

Track Name: Feels Like Forever
FEELS LIKE FOREVER

I wanna walk through Brooklyn, hold hands in the night
And see the glare in your eye from the pale moonlight
Boy from Carolina with a lot on his mind
And not a soul to share it with, as I walk this line
The shadows beside me won’t stay around for long
I end up walkin’ by myself singin’ sad love songs (Just walkin’…)

Follow me onto the ‘L’ train (Just walkin’…)
See me stumble through the closin’ doors (Still walkin’…)
And watch me fall to the floor…

I’m wailin’ at the walls
Beggin’ you to call
It’s lonely, so lonely
My heart is under fire
Every single night
And it feels like… forever
I’m draggin’ this around
Blood is on the ground
It’s ugly, so ugly
I’m rattling my bones
Sinkin’ like a stone
And it feels like…
It feels like… forever

I took a stroll through Queens and yeah the weather was nice
I swear the sun would be much brighter if I had you by my side
Echoes of the silence are a crowd in my mind
And now daydreamin’ seems to be the only solace I can find
My eyes are always open but my window is closed
I end up walkin’ by myself
Singin’ sad love songs (Just walkin’…)

Scattered roses on the ‘L’ train (Just walkin’…)
I waited for ya by the closin’ doors (Still walkin’…)
I know you been here before…

I’m wailin’ at the walls
Beggin’ you to call
It’s lonely, so lonely
My heart is under fire
Every single night
And it feels like… forever
I’m draggin’ this around
Blood is on the ground
It’s ugly, so ugly
I’m rattling my bones
Sinkin’ like a stone
And it feels like…
It feels like… forever

I hope one day I will be man enough to say this to your face
But until that day…
I’ll just be headin’ into hell
Just sittin’ on the, sittin’ on the “L”

I’m wailin’ at the walls
Beggin’ you to call
It’s lonely, so lonely
My heart is under fire
Every single night
And it feels like… forever
I’m draggin’ this around
Blood is on the ground
It’s ugly, so ugly
I’m rattling my bones
Sinkin’ like a stone
And it feels like…
It feels like… forever
