All Take

You were tempted with candy

And the taste, it was sweet

Sold your soul to the devil

Just to kiss the ground she walked on

She was bad, she was bad news boy

The saddest excuses

From her poison lips

Don't go knocking at her door

No she won't be there tomorrow

You been had, you been had

 

She was all take, what a mistake

Dragged you down to the gates of hell

She took all your money, took what you gave

Now you're never the same

She was heartbreak, another mistake

Dragged you down to the gates of hell

She took all your money, took what you gave

Now she's gone away

 

The lady's a vampire

Come to bleed you dry

In her wake, a fire

Just to burn the ground you walked on

With a hand in your pocket

And one on your cigarette

That love had you dyin'

No, she won't be there come mornin'

You been had, you been had

 

She was all take, what a mistake

Dragged you down to the gates of hell

She took all your money, took what you gave

Now you're never the same

She was heartbreak, another mistake

Dragged you down to the gates of hell

She took all your money, took what you gave

Now she's gone away

 

It's a cry, cryin' shame

When a good one comes along she says it's too late

Lookin' at him there on the floor

I said leave that boy alone

Don't you know, don't you know, don't you know

 

all take, what a mistake

Dragged you down to the gates of hell

She took all your money, took what you gave

Now you're never the same

She was heartbreak, another mistake

Dragged you down to the gates of hell

She took all your money, took what you gave

Now she's gone away

Now she's gone away

all take, what a mistake

Dragged you down to the gates of hell

She took all your money, took what you gave

Now she gone away


Honey

She'll be rockin' your ocean every night

She's a hurricane

In her eyes a volcano, to erupt

Well that love she gives is a natural disaster, I know

But if you're lookin' at me for shelter, I ain't it

I hate to break the bad news, compared to me she

 

Is sweet like honey

Sweet like honey, honey

 

Keep an eye on your target

While she yells for no reason, tiny daggers

She will unhinge her jaw just to swallow you whole

Then throw you away

Just like a snake in the tall grass she is waiting

I'm sorry for the truth, but compared to me she is sweet

Sweet like honey, oh honey

La da da da da da di

La da da da da da di

Maybe you'll figure it out, she's not the maneater

Craving the taste of your soul

Well you know, I'll tell you again

Nobody's perfect, it's better than being alone

 

Sweet like honey yeah (La da da da da da di)

La da da da da da di

La da da da da da di

La da da da da da di

Sweet like honey


Not the Kind

Show me how you do it

This thing that you do

You are not the kind I usually like

Show me how you do it

This magic that you do

You are not the kind I usually like

(send for me) don't leave me alone now

(send for me) you don't even know how

(I don't like) to say goodnight

 

Show me how you do it

This thing that you do to my soul

Wrap your arms around me, let's go

Let's go

Let's go

Let's go

(send for me) don't leave me alone now

(send for me) you don't even know how

(I don't like) to say goodnight

Say goodnight say goodnight say goodni-ight


O my friends we are gathered softly

inside the little pink house

No, we don’t know what to say to each other

Then I go and ask your mother

She said, “I gotta be honest.

I’ll never be the same.”

 

I am standing outside your bedroom

dressed like a mausoleum, hits like a hurricane

O my body on pins and needles

To see the way that you left it, pristinely the way it stayed

 

when i leave

i’ll feel the breeze

because you gotta go somewhere beyond the gray of an open grave

the night we could hardly speak

 

When it’s my time to leave this planet

and go into orbit, I’d better land safe

And this life that we’ve built together

I hope they tear it all down, tear it all down

Because I want to be where you are

sippin’ a margarita, under the canopy

 

When I leave

I'll feel the breeze

Because you gotta go somewhere beyond the gray of an open grave

The night we could hardly speak

 

When I leave (when I leave)

I'll feel the breeze (I'll feel the breeze)

(Because you gotta go) Because you gotta go somewhere beyond

The gray of an open grave

The night we could hardly speak

 

We could hardly speak

Mausoleum
