WHEN WE WERE YOUNGER
Thank god I found my way back home, and it sure feels right flying in tonight
(Remember all the pranks we played?)
But thinkin' back to when we were young we were always on the run
(I miss it all)
So let's look back at what we had

We drank, (until the sun came up)
We sang, (until the cops showed up)
My friends, i'll never forget you
When we were younger
We'd skip, (every single class)
We drove, (our parents to kick our ass)
My friends, i'll never forget you
When we were younger

And now it's time like this I wonder how my life coulda been if I stayed
Would all that fun slip away?
(Remember all the joints we rolled?)
Cause the funniest party I remember was when we burnt your whole place down
(I miss it all)
The memories remain with me

Take my hand and let's walk back in time, when we'd all talk
And close your eyes and you can see the faces, and all the places
Where we'd get into all those fights, and all the streets we'd terrorize at night
Oh, when we were young



ONE LAST TIME
Stop calling me now, youíre making this way too hard
And donít bother with how you wished we werenít apart
Never thought you could be
The one to end up walking out on me for life

Well I remember how it went; you hid it from the start
Another man in our own bed, was how we fell apart
Never thought you could be
The one to give it up for sex and lies

But I wonít lie, Ďcause Iíve been dreaming of you all night
Just one last time

Well Iíve got to taste your dirty tongue in my mouth
Thereís so many words to describe how I feel
Rip your skirt off; make you beg me for more
Cause tonight Iím closing the door

Now Iím dancing on glass, it hides away the pain
Till my world is spinning fast, now youíre standing in the rain
Never thought I would be
Here opening the door for you tonight

But I wonít lie, Ďcause Iíve been dreaming of you all night
So come inside



MISS HOLLYWOOD
Beverly to Hollywood and even Bel-Air, Santa Monica to Downtown, I donít care
Woh, Iíll show you what itís like to get dirty, with a rock star tonight
Down Sunset Iím wet cause you donít stop, Iím on fire in the hills cause youíre so hot
Woh, Iíll show you what itís like to get dirty, with a rock star tonight

Surfs up, its time to get some honey with ten models at a beachside party
Well summertime is here LA (california sun, Iím haviní too much fun)
Now Iím in town for one night only, enough time for you to get to know me
So Miss Hollywood come on (get down tonight till the morning light)

Woh, Iíll make you feel alright, and throw out your fears you have inside
So donít hold back just let out your fantasies tonight
Let your hair down Iíll make you feel alright

(Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to Dakara Land)

Last call, bottoms up, Iím on a mission, even when there ainít no competition
So what time is it LA? (love makiní time, Iím gunna make you mine)
I know you want it, cause you show it on your face
Buckle up, down the highway to your place
So Miss Hollywood come on, (last chance tonight, so set this town a light)



PHOTOGRAPH
All over magazines, a model youíre a super star
Youíre sent from heaven, but a devil down on boulevard
I hear youíre at the troubadour tonight, oh yeah
Gotta get to you Iíve got you in my sights, tonight in LA, in LA right!

Well Iíll take you home tonight, and weíll leave on all the lights
So baby, unhook your strap, cause tonight I want your photograph

Canít help but touch you while the two of us are standing there
Itís too electric, man I gotta get you outta here
I see you left your boy at home tonight,
So funny, cause youíre too dirty to wear white in the city of angels, youíre the devil right!

Take you home tonight, leave on all the lights
Baby donít get too fast, how I want your photograph



SHADY EYES
I can't believe all the lies you said, but you got me
When you pulled your legs spread
You were just a waste of time and the worst thing I could find
Now you say it like its all true, but itís a shame I see right through you
You ain't worth a single dime and without you Iíll be fine

So go back to your world where you get on well,
But donít let me hear you ask me why

I left you all alone here to die, and it feels so good, you hurt inside
And while you spread both your thighs for the next 5 dollar bill
Iíll be weary when I see shady eyes

Human eyes canít be so shady; I mustíve been just a little crazy,
There was one thing on my mind; I could have you any night
Now you come back but it's over, gave up when you couldn't stay sober
Ain't a place that I can find, a thought of you inside my mind

So go back to your world, theyíve all got that smell
Where girls shake their ass, gets a dollar to sell
So go back to your world where you get on well
But donít let me hear you ask me why

If only you could open your eyes and see
That you are only human and life isnít free
Oh and all of your make up, it just happens to be
A sad way to hide from your insecurities



COMATOSE
Now you tell me that this time wonít be the same
Itís funny causeí some thingís will never change
I know Iíve got to get out
Before you come around and you make me believe
The shit that you do to try to keep me here
Shouldíve known from the first time to stay clear
I know it wonít be long now
Till I give into you and trust you again

Well you just take me and rape me, and strip me of my pride
And you just beat me, still hate me, and tear apart my life
And though Iím tired of dying I still love you to the bones
But Iím running tonight

Now we shoot up, youíve got me up against the door
Itís all too much and then I hit the floor
I know Iíve got to get out
Itís all spinning around, Ďcause you gave me relief
The shit that we take runs up and down my veins
Its funny causeí some thingís will never change
I know it wonít be long now
Till I listen to you, and love you again



CRYSTAL
Today I sit right next to you and as I hear you speak
Canít seem to think, Iím so amazed that I forget to breathe
The way your hair just seems to sit onto your flawless skin
And all the things that Iíd give up to see your face again
Tonight I slap myself to sleep and try to kill this dream
To think a girl like you could fall for someone fucked like me
But itís not easy to give up on my insanity
When I see you looking up and staring back at me
Now everything comes out

I will live you, and breathe you, Iíd give up without you
Well now you know your kiss still burns and
I will love you, and bleed you, stand tall to shield you
Well now you know your kiss still burns and

Your innocence it resonates from your big crystal eyes
Iíve lost myself in them before;
And how I long to lay with you under the cover sheets
Turn up the heater on the floor and kiss you sexually
Well I just wanna shout it out

So what if I could change, and try to rearrange
To be the man you need, please come and set me free
Just let me hold your hand, Iíll be there till the end
Iíve loved you all along, so baby come back

And there are days I wont give in and weeks that seem so tough,
But there are years or maybe more when I'm not good enough
To be around a girl like you I cannot break in two,
And be the one who makes it right and fights the war for you



HOME
Wish you could be here in my hotel room too
Itís been so long I canít wait to see
If youíve gotten any prettier from the day I met you
I hope you havenít forgotten about me
And as I walk through the rain Iíll let it wash my fear
Even though youíre miles away, I still know youíre near
And every time you call you make me drift away
Even just to hear your voice gets me through the day
Now Iím fine cause

Iím headiní home for you, and baby itís been so damn long
All this time without, without you, know that it felt so damn wrong
But I had to let you go, and learn to set you free
I guess you will never, never know what you mean to me, oh home

Never been so scared to look in your eyes
Causeí this time I know itís for real
So many things I gotta say to you
So many questions
If only you could show me how you feel
And as I drug my brain, anything to fill this hole
Even though itís hard to say
I still need your soul
And every time you call you make me drift away
Even just to hear your voice gets me through the day

And I know, oh I know itís been hard on your own
But now that I found you Iím counting down the days till I see your pretty face

And I think of the way that I left you that day
Never wanted to go, I couldnít let my fear show
But you still stuck around, even when I fell to the ground
I didnít think youíd stay true, after all that I put you through
Baby you make everything right, but Iím still in the fight
Cause you never gave up on your love for me
Now I am free

Even when it seems too far, even when you lose all hope
Doesnít matter where you are, I could never let you go
Donít care what it takes, and now that Iíve found you
We are fine causeí now we are home



IíM COMING BACK FOR YOU
Paperwork put to rest, all our blood on the floor
Our windows are shattered, you point to the door
Memories are still hung above some holes left in the wall
Carpet stains, broken plates, we canít do this anymore

And with sandpaper I scratch away the secrets Iíve always kept from you
That makes you realize that your trust in me is paper thin

So everyday I see your face and it reminds me of the way
How all the shame i feel burns inside of me
For you, I've got to walk away and go unwillingly
But remember Iím coming back for you

Time to leave you alone, no more sharing the bed
I tried to build your life but broke it instead
With no shirt on my back, I have nothing to wear
The only moment youíre happy is when Iím not there

Like sandpaper I have stripped you all the way down
To your frail bones and disregard your skin
And with sandpaper I scratch away the secrets Iíve always kept from you
That makes you realize that your trust in me is paper thin

Well I canít define the fire inside cause the methamphetamine is somewhere to hide
So now you will see, cause Iím in too deep I will go, Iím leaving you so I can grow
