LYRICS

My love has come along
My dream’s become a song
My days are bright and sunny
Funny why I’m so blue

The man is like a drug
Humiliating and I can’t get enough
Love and all its splendor
Has surrendered its every blow
Bad is the blues that I know

If this is love
What was I thinking
If this is love
What the hell am I, am I gonna do
And that man has got me sinking
To the bottom of the blue
It’s what I choose
Love is the baddest blues

The joy versus the pain
No my joy it ain’t the same
So I’ll put it plain and simple
Just like front page news
Love is the baddest blues

Love is the baddest blues

If this is love
What was I thinking
If this is love
What the hell am I, am I gonna do
And that man has got me sinking
To the bottom of the blue
Guess that I lose
Love is the baddest blues

Road is wide sky is black
Rattle snake running down your back
Desert howls liar’s moon
Bang bang bang boom boom boom boom

I want your love I want your love
I want your poison in my cup
Morning sun rising soon
Bang bang bang boom boom boom boom

Bang bang in a ring of fire
Bang bang my sweet desire
Bang bang my love is true
Bang bang I die for you
Bang bang bang boom boom boom boom

Count it down from 10 to 1
Crazy heart lucky gun
We were born bad blood and bones
You’re the sticks and I am the stones

Bang bang in a ring of fire
Bang bang my sweet desire
Bang bang my love is true
Bang bang I die for you
Bang bang bang boom boom boom boom

I’ll be Bonnie you’ll be Clyde
Rock n roll suicide
Meet you on the other side

Bullets made from silver spoons
I got em baby just for you
Go ahead and make your move
And do it soon

Bang bang in a ring of fire
Bang bang my sweet desire
Bang bang my love is true
Bang bang I die for you

Bang Bang (bang bang)
Bang bang (boom boom)
Bang bang (bang bang)
Oh bang bang (boom boom)

And the next bang bang might be for you

He got me feeling so fine
He taught the sun how to shine
He turns my water to wine
He do it every time
Ain’t nothing better than that
I let him play with my cat
Got nothing on but his hat
Ain’t nothing wrong with that

All that I want him to know
That I want him to know
Is that I love him so
He’s better than I ever had
More than I can stand

I found me a better man, better man
Who loves better than, better than
Better than you ever can
Don’t want no animal
Acting so out of control
I found me a better man
He grease my pan
Better than you can

He’s no complicated man
He’s happy holding my hand
He likes to swim in my tub
I like his rub’a’dub
He’s never stolen my car
Or tried to pawn my guitar
He doesn’t flirt with my friends
My money he don’t spend

All that I want him to know
That I want him to know
Is that I love him so
He’s better than I ever had
More than I can stand

I found me a better man, better man
Who loves better than, better than
Better than you ever can
Don’t want no animal
Acting so out of control
I found me a better man
He grease my pan
Better than you can

Love and happiness I have received
Love has surely been so good to me
I finally found myself a piece of sky

I found me a better man, better man
Who loves better than, better than
Better than you ever can

I found me a better man, better man
Who loves better than, better than
Better than you ever can
Don’t want no animal
Acting so out of control
I found me a better man

I found me a better man
Who loves better than
Better than you ever can
He grease my pan
Better than you can

I’m under your spell
Ain’t nobody’s business
I’m already there
And it ain’t nobody’s business

Every time he walks out the door
I wonder if he’s ever coming back
But I can’t help but love the taste of danger baby
And the howl and the wind and the rough of his hands

I got caught out in the rain
If I die I don’t care I’m in love
I’m in love, I’m in love with this man
I got caught out, caught out, caught out
In the rain

I heard him crying in his sleep last night
No man wants to be told that he’s been crying
When he wakes up I tell him it’s gonna be alright
But I know that he knows that I’m just lying
I heard he shot a man down in the street
And it tore his soul apart
Last night when he was making love to me
There was a, another woman in his heart

I got caught out in the rain
If I die I don’t care I’m in love
I’m in love, I’m in love with this man
I got caught out, caught out, caught out
In the rain, in the rain

I got caught out in the rain
If I die I don’t care, I don’t care
I’m in love, I’m in love
I got caught out, caught out, caught out
In the rain, in the rain

In his name
In his pain

Ain’t nobody’s business
Ain’t nobody, ain’t nobody, ain’t nobody’s business

I won’t kiss and tell
Like a spell

Why have a song if you ain’t gonna sing
Make a move do your thing
It don’t really matter if you’re out of tune
So enjoy yourself all afternoon

I’m putting my foot down
And swing my thing back around
And play my favorite tune
Do dew dee dup de dap de doo

Why buy the shoes if you ain’t gonna dance
Free your mind take a chance
What are you doing just hanging around
Shake a hip go down town

I’m putting my foot down
And swing my thing back around
And play my favorite tune
Do dew dee dup de dap de doo

I better sooner than later
Pull my head out the sand
Stop lying in the gutter
Sipping whiskey with my crackers and spam

Why wear the ring if it ain’t gonna shine
Tell your man you’re worth the dime
And why have a heart if it ain’t gonna buzz
Kiss him hard and feel his love

I’m putting my foot down and swing my thing back a
I’m putting my foot down and switch this hip back a
And play my own damn tune
Do dew dee dup de dwap de doo

I guess your labor wasn’t in vain
To get out your way I did everything
But I’ve been falling in love with you everyday

It wasn’t easy I know
Some of those nights it probably seemed impossible
But I’ve been falling in love with you everyday

Every time the sun comes up
I turn back around
I’m climbing all the walls that I built
To keep you out
And all the bridges you, you tried to burn
Have all fallen down
It’s you and me now

Next to you I want to lie
On your shoulder when I need to cry
I’m so happy that you came
To ease the darkness and ease the pain
And I’ve been falling in love with you
Falling in love with you
Falling in love with you
Falling in love, falling in love
With you everyday

I’ve been falling in love with you everyday

I could fly away
And leave it all behind
I could take a train
But I would rather fly

I could escape thru the window of mind
But I would never leave you behind
I’ve seen the place where the broken people hide
I wanna know love before I die
Open the window
Open the window

I could steal a plane
The stars the moon the rain
I will make a change
I’d give anything

I could escape thru the window of mind
But I would never leave you behind
I’ve seen the place where the broken people hide
I wanna know love before I die

I’m waiting, I’m waiting
For something, for nothing
I’m ready, I’m ready now

Open the window
Open the window
Open the window

I could escape thru the window of my mind
But I would never leave you behind
I’ve seen the place where the broken people hide
I wanna know love before I die

Open the window
Open the window
Open the window

Springing like a chicken
I wake up in the morning
Cooking up my bacon and bread
Jumping in the shower
Got less than half an hour
To make it to the congregation

I’m going hip shaking down the aisle
Breaking bread with my own special style
I got the spirit of God
I got the spirit of God

Now the preacher’s going crazy
He swears he’s gonna save me
Stomping devils out on the floor
My soul starts a jumping
I know I’m feeling something
Choir’s givin’ it up to the Lord

We’re going hip shaking down the aisle
Every mother, brother, sister and child
Got the spirt of God
We got the spirit of God

Ain’t nothing like a soul celebration
To set your situation right
I’m going more than half way to heaven
Destination straight to the light
I know I’m more than half way to heaven
The lord
I got the spirit of God
I got the spirit of God

Now my mojo ain’t been working
I’m broken but I’m learning
To get my strut back up on the street
People call me lazy
Yeah just a little maybe
Jivin’ everyone that I meet

But I’m going hip shaking down the aisle
Yeah I do it with my own special style
I got the spirit of God
I got the spirit of God

Ain’t nothing like a soul celebration
To set your situation right
I’m going more than half way to heaven
Destination straight to the light
I know I’m more than half way to heaven
The lord
I got the spirit of God
Got me the spirit of God

Alright now alright now show them how to do it

I got the spirit of God: I want to thank you Lord
I got the spirit of God: For giving me the word
I got the spirit of God: I want to thank you Lord
I want to thank you Lord I got to thank you Lord
I got the spirit of God: I want to thank the One
I got the spirit of God: Who gave his only son
I got the spirit of God: I want to thank you Lord
I want to thank you Lord

Ain’t nothing like a soul celebration
I made my reservation on time
I’m going more than half way to heaven
Destination straight to the light, the light, light
I know I’m more than half way to heaven
The lord
Gave me the spirit of God
Gave me the spirit of God
Got me the spirit of God

I just stopped by to see your face
I heard you been out running and hiding all over the place
So you gone and you decided to give it all away to the church
You say you ain’t sick but every little bit of the living hurts

Wherever you go whatever you do
I will be there inside of you
There in your heart
There in your heart
Wherever you go I will go too

The hours laid out like lightning stretching far across the sky
You say, you say it must be a million years ago when I believed that I could fly
Maybe I’ll burn down the house  or build crosses from the wood
Maybe I’ll go to Africa and be lion king if only I could

Wherever you go whatever you do
I will be there inside of you
There in your heart
There in your heart
Wherever you go I will go too

I was there in the beginning when you took your first breath alone
I’ll be there in the ending when the world’s desire leaves your bones
In all of the corners and in all the wide open spaces in the dark
I’ll be there in your heart
I’ll be there in your heart

I’ll be there in your heart
There in your heart
I’ll be there in your heart

If it’s not one thing it’s another
Flies buzzing around big as hawks
I’m not just screaming for my supper
I live at the ugliest house on the block
So what
So what

I’ve been trying to make a little money
If you got the honey I got the pot
I’m tired hearing you’re so lonely
I live in the ugliest house on the block
Get the hell off my lot
Yeah get the hell off my lot
Yeah so what

Beating on a dead horse for filler
I don’t go over well with the live stock
These are serious times there are serial killers
Next to the ugliest house on the block
I heard that they hate my house a lot
They say I ain’t gotta shot
I know I ain’t gotta shot

Entertainment’s where it’s at
Reality reruns on crack
My own dad could give a crap
I’d wear his love if I had a hard hat
I would rob, but I hate the cops
Sirens roar and guns go pop
And Rock ‘n Rolls become Hip Hop
Oh well
So what
Yeah so what
Oh hell
Suck it up
So what

I swear to God I’m not a sinner
I know God likes me a lot
He has saved me in the river
So I’ll stay in the ugliest house on the block
I’ll stay in this ugly house til I rot
Be glad for what I got

Entertainment’s where it’s at
Reality reruns on crack
My own dad could give a crap
I’d wear his love if I had a hard hat
I would rob but I hate the cops
Sirens roar and guns go pop
And Rock ‘n Roll’s become Hip Hop

Oh nana oh nana na oh nana nana oh nana oh nana oh na na na
Na na na na

Entertainment’s where it’s at
Reality reruns on crack
My own dad could give a crap
I’d wear his love if I had a hard hat
I would rob but I hate the cops
Sirens roar and guns go pop
And Rock ‘n Roll’s become Hip Hop
You can’t be something that you’re not
And when I go lay my head down
I want a man to stay around
We’ll live in this ugly house
Oh well
So what
Yeah so what
Oh hell
This sucks

Everything has changed
The sky don’t shine or rain
Stars don’t walk me home
So I go this road alone

But everything will turn
When the heroes feel the burn
And the outlaw speaks the truth
I was braver in my youth
No I’m not the same
But everything must change

Everyone is gone
The dogs don’t get along
Cracks run thru the wood
Can’t live here no one could
But everyone will come
With dreams and things they’ve won
Little women start to dance
Broken men get a second chance
No one is the same
But everything must change

I just want to go I just want to go
Go outside and run
I just want to be I just wanna see
Before it’s all said and done
I can’t wait no longer, longer, longer

Where is all the love
Round here we all look up
And the love runs ore the edge
I just need a friend
Then everywhere there’s light
When the dying start to fight
And the ashes blow away
It’s the most beautiful day
When it’s time to say goodbye
Sweet mother don’t you cry
There will be no more pain
Cuz everything must change

 

Writer & Composer: Beth Hart

Something told me that it was over, baby yeah
When I saw you, when I saw you and that girl and y’all was talking
Something deep down, something deep down in my soul said go, go on and cry girl
When I saw you, when I saw you and that same person and y’all was walking by

And I’d rather, I’d rather baby be a blind girl
Than to see you walk away, walk away from me baby
Don’t leave me I don’t wanna see you go
Oh oh your warm embrace
Your warm, warm embrace

When I looked down in the glass that I held to my lips
And I saw the reflection of the tears rolling down my face
That’s when I knew I loved you and I couldn’t do without you
And I’d rather be a blind girl, baby baby baby, baby, baby
Oh baby, oh, oh baby

And something deep down in my soul said go, go on and cry girl
When I saw you, when I saw you and that same person and y’all was walking by
And I’d rather go blind, I’d rather go blind, I’d rather go blind
Than to see you walk away, don’t walk away
Cause I’d rather go blind
