Lyrics


1. IT'S NOT YOU

[CHORUS:]
I'm in love with somebody
Found someone who completes me
I'm in love with somebody , oh yeah
And it's not you

Read my finger whatcha gonna do?
See these lips are all done talkin' to you
I don't mean to bruise your ego
But I've had you nailed down for so long
And I don't see your name on my tattoo
Hope you understand
It's been a long time coming
It's for the best
No offense

[CHORUS]

I know who you think you are
Sorry I've turned you on but I'm kissing you off
Your lines are whiskey and cigarettes
They're not enough to make me forget
I've got someone who has raised the bar
I've heard it all before
Stop spinning your wheels
I'll show you the door
No hard feelings

[CHORUS]

You're probably never been shut down before.
I'll try and make it easier

[CHORUS]

It's not you.




2. I GET OFF

You don't know that I know
You watch me every night
And I just can't resist the urge
To stand here in the light
Your greedy eyes upon me
And then I come undone
I could close the curtain
But this is too much fun

[CHORUS:]
I get off on you
Getting off on me
Give you what you want
But nothing is for free
It's a give and take
Kind of love we make
When the line is crossed
I get off
I get off

There's so much left unspoken
Between the two of us
It's so much more exciting
To look when you can't touch
You could say I'm different
Maybe I'm a freak
But I know how to twist you
To bring you to your knees

[CHORUS]

What you don't know
What you can't see
Is what I do for you
I do for me

[CHORUS]




3. BET U WISH U HAD ME BACK

It was you and me and one hot summer
Beading up with sweat all over each other soaking wet
We didn't have a lot of time so we didn't waste much
Finding all the right places you wanted me to touch
And all those memories make it so hard to forget about me

[CHORUS:]
I bet you wish you had me back
Another chance to get it just like that
The best you ever had
And do you close your eyes with her
And pretend I'm doing you again
Like only I can
I bet you wish you had me back

It was you and me it seemed to last forever
The way you taste I still remember the sounds we made
One day in June I stayed all night
And made love to you like the Fourth of July
And all those memories make it so hard to forget about me

[CHORUS]

I bet you wish you had me back
Every night
Every time
You see me when you close your eyes
I bet you wish you had me back
Another chance to get it just like that
Like only I can
I bet you wish you had me back
I bet you wish you had me back




4. INNOCENCE

You see it from the outside
You're running toward the wall
Swinging from your blind side
But you don't know me at all
I've been here too many times before
And your tears don't mean a thing
I only come when you scream, I told you

[CHORUS:]
Child, don't follow me home
You're just too perfect for my hands to hold
If you choose to stay, you'll throw it all away
And I just want to take your innocence

Is this what you wanted
Did I make your dreams come true?
You're sitting in a corner
Wondering what you got into
And you ache for things you don't understand
That your tears don't mean a thing
I only come when you scream, and I told you

[CHORUS]

There's no such thing as fate
Only yourself to blame you never walked away

[CHORUS]




5. FAMILIAR TASTE OF POISON

Drink the wine, my darling, you said
Take your time, consume all of it
But the roses were only to drain my inspiration
The promises were spoiled before they left your lips and...

[CHORUS:]
I breathe you in again just to feel you
Underneath my skin, holding on to
The sweet escape is always laced with a familiar taste of poison

I tell myself that you're no good for me
I wish you well, but desire never leaves
I could fight this til the end
But maybe I don't want to win

[CHORUS]

I don't wanna be saved, I don't wanna be sober
I want you on my mind, in my dreams behind these eyes
And I won't wake up, no not this time.

[CHORUS]

A familiar taste of poison




6. I'M NOT AN ANGEL

You made a mistake
On the day that you met me and lost your way
You saw all the signs
But you let it go
You closed your eyes
I should've told you to leave
Cause I knew all the time you couldn't handle me
But you're hard to resist
When you're on your knees begging me

[CHORUS]
I tear you down
I make you bleed eternally
Can't help myself
From hurting you and it's hurting me
I don't have wings so flying with me won't be easy
Cause I'm not an angel, I'm not an angel

I hate being that wall
That you hit when you feel like you gave it all
I keep taking the blame
When we both know that I'll never change

[CHORUS]

I wasn't always this way
I used to be the one with the halo
But that disappeared when I had my first taste and fell from grace
It left me in this place
Now I'm starting to think maybe you like it

[CHORUS]

I'm not an angel




7. WHAT WHERE YOU EXPECTING?

I know what you must be thinking
But you're not right
You should know I'm not your baby
Not tonight
I never was
The kind of girl to trip and fall in love
I never was
The kind to say enough is not enough
I never was
The touchy, feely, co-dependent kind
I like the feeling but I'm not on cloud nine
Ya love it ya hate it
Ya think it ya say it
Ya want it ya need it
I tell ya but don't believe it

[CHORUS:]
What were you expecting?
Another lullaby?
Are you kidding?
You must be high
Cause it was just one kiss
Yeah, yeah, yeah

I don't need your flowers, they'll just go to waste
I don't want your candy cause I don't like the taste
There never was
A possibility I'd stick around
It never was
My intention to let you down
The kind of girl that's good at playin house
Ya want it ya need it
I tell ya but you don't believe it

[CHORUS]

Everything about you makes me scream
Be a man and get up off your knees
I'm trying to say this in the nicest way

What were you expecting?
Another lullaby?
Are you kidding?
You must be high...

[CHORUS]




8. LOVE/ HATE HEARTBREAK

Why do you waste my time?
Two steps, I don't rewind
Feeling I can't define
I give back to you

Give it all away, take it all away
Give it all away, take it all away

I see my demise
From behind your eyes
I can't pass you by
I put back to you

Give it all away, take it all away
Give it all away, take it all away
Give it all away, take it all away
Give it all away, take it all away

Between love, between hate
Shake the silence back but it's too late
And it haunts you, and it haunts you
It's a love hate heartbreak

This could be suicide
A kiss with these red knives
Why am I traveling by?
I give back to you

Give it all away, take it all away
Give it all away, take it all away

Try on one full size
I thought boys don't cry
You're my perfect lie
Back to you

Give it all away, take it all away
Give it all away, take it all away
Give it all away, take it all away
Give it all away, take it all away

Between love, between hate
Shake the silence back but it's too late
And it haunts you, and it haunts you
It's a love hate heartbreak

Between love between hate
Shake the silence back but it's too late
And it haunts you, and it haunts you
It's a love hate heartbreak

Between love between hate
Shake the silence back but it's too late
And it haunts you, and it haunts you
It's a love hate heartbreak

Between love between hate
Shake the silence back but it's too late
And it haunts you, and it haunts you
It's a love hate heartbreak

Give it all away, take it all away
Give it all away, take it all away




9. BETTER SORRY THAN SAFE

I can't even think of one good reason
Why I'm always thinking about leaving
It's not like everything's so horrible

We've been together for a few years now
And you know all my ins and outs
But everything's way too comfortable
From the moment I wake I plan my escape

I'm not scared
'Cause I know there's something out there waiting for me
And I swear that I'll find it someday, just wait and see

I don't care that you call me crazy
I can't stay 'cause I need room to breathe
There's nothing left to say, better sorry than safe

Sometimes I wish you cheated on me
Then leavin' here would be so easy
It's time to take a chance and give you up
In the morning I'll wake and make my escape

I'm not scared
'Cause I know there's something out there waiting for me
And I swear that I'll find it someday, just wait and see

I don't care that you call me crazy
I can't stay 'cause I need room to breathe
There's nothing left to say, better sorry than safe

I'm not scared
'Cause I know there's something out there waiting for me
And I swear that I'll find it someday, just wait and see

I don't care that you call me crazy
I can't stay 'cause I need room to breathe
There's nothing left to say, better sorry than safe
Oh yeah, there's nothing left to say




10. DIRTY WORK

Get on your knees and let the games begin
Bow to your queen and I will crown your head
'Cause I can make you every inch a king
Before I do tell me, tell me what's in it for me?

I need someone young, willing and able
You need someone old enough to know better
I want you to

Do my dirty work, do my dirty work, oh
Do my dirty work, do my dirty work
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, c'mon
Do my dirty work, do my dirty work

Let me be your labor of love
My royal garden needs a hired man
Plant your seed, darlin'
My roses are in your hands

I need someone young, willing and able
You need someone old enough to know better
I want you to

Do my dirty work, do my dirty work, oh
Do my dirty work, do my dirty work
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, c'mon

Do my dirty work, do my dirty work, oh
Do my dirty work, do my dirty work
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, c'mon

Do my dirty work, do my dirty work
Do my dirty work, do my dirty work
Do my dirty work, do my dirty work
Do my dirty work, do my dirty work




11. NOTHING TO DO WITH LOVE

You had your heart set on an angel's kiss
Maybe a taste of bliss
Maybe a long white dress and a fistful of flowers

You wrapped your arms around a murderer
Pretending it didn't hurt
Every time I cut you deeper and deeper

Hey I'm not the one, I'm not the one
I'm not the one you wanna give your heart too

You came, you fell
You thought this was something else
This has got nothing to do with love
This has got nothing to do with

You beg, you plead
You wanted more than you could keep
This has got nothing to do with love
This has got nothing to do with
This has got nothing to do with love

I gave you just enough to paralyze
Thought maybe you could satisfy
Sometimes I get so bored of you boy

Hey I'm not the one, I'm not the one
I'm not the one you wanna give your heart too

You came, you fell
You thought this was something else
This has got nothing to do with love
This has got nothing to do with

You beg, you plead
You wanted more than you could keep
This has got nothing to do with love
This has got nothing to do with
This has got nothing to do with love

I'm not the one, I'm not the one

You came, you fell
You thought this was something else
This has got nothing to do with love
This has got nothing to do with

You beg, you plead
You wanted more than you could keep
This has got nothing to do with love
This has got nothing to do with
This has got nothing to do with love
This has got nothing to do with
This has got nothing to do with love

12. TELL ME WHERE IT HURTS (BONUS TRACK)

Hey did ya know you're makin' nice with a murderer
Hey did ya know you're swappin' lives with a dirty girl
In order for me to play your nurse,
You gonna have to tell me where it hurt

Hey you know you're lockin' lips with a libertine
Hey did you know you're knockin' hips with a killer queen
Another victim of my method of seduction
I made you look but you never saw me comin'

Hey did you know you got your eyes on a suicide prize
With a flick of my wrist I'll twist your worlds around

Take you to give it to me
Give it your best shot
My love is black and blue

13. CONVERSATION OVER (BONUS TRACK)

I was in the shadows and you were blocking my light
Didn't know for two years that I was living your lie
You covered all your tracks so perfectly clear
You never talked, told me everything I wanted to hear

Oh, I never thought I'd hear myself say:
"Go, get out of my life, outta my bed, you're wasting my time.
Just go! This time for sure, we're so no more!
Conversation over!"

Go! Get out! Go, go!
Get out! Go, go!

You had it all, had everything then you threw it all away
I tried but couldn't get you higher than the cocaine
I'm sick and tired of trying to save your life
Only you can!

Never thought I'd hear myself say:
"Go, get out of my life, outta my bed, you're wasting my time.
Just go! This time for sure, we're so no more!
Conversation over!"

Go! Get out! Go, go!
Get out! Go, go!

Out of my head, out of my life, wasting my time
Out of my bed, get what I said.
I'm out of my head, out of my life, wasting my time.
Out of my head!

I tried to fix you, tried to help you, tried to understand
But we always end up right back here again
I'm out of hope, end of the rope and I'm scared to death how the story ends.

Never thought I'd hear myself say:
"Go, get out of my life, outta my bed, you're wasting my time.
Just go! This time for sure, we're so no more!
Conversation over!"

Conversation over!
Conversation over!

Go! Get out! Go, go!
Get out! Go, go!
Get out! Go, go!
Get out! Go, go!




14. DIRTY MIND (BONUS TRACK)




I just called to hear you breathe
Whisper in my ear
Tell me everything I need to hear
It seems like the love we make
Is just as good when you're away
Things you say I can feel

[Chorus:]
I don't need to have you here
To feel you crashing into me
I'm better off this way, yeah
Not hearing me complain
And I don't need to taste your lips
I've satisfied my appetite
Me and my dirty mind
Been working overtime

I hear your voice on the phone
Imagine what you're wearing
To do something right gotta do it myself, yeah.
You left me here all alone
I take matters into my own hands
I just might burn in hell, yeah.

[Chorus x1]

Can you keep up? Is that all you got?
You're wasting all my precious time
Don't need your permission
Turn the ignition, and I'll race you to
The finish line

[Chorus x1]
Working overtime...
