Bleeding At Your Backdoor Tonight Make believe that I could live without ya Every treasure I went searching for was gone Take me home 'cause I'm nothing but a heartbreak I'm just a fool whose strength is anything but strong I am bleeding at your backdoor tonight I'm the lone gunfighter dying from a bullet Take me into the light A fairytale heart, scarred Outlaw to play the part Bleeding at your backdoor tonight Make believe you can't go on without me Through your doorway forget the pictures that grace your wall I know I shoulda known, but I left ya anyway Too many stars in the sky and I had to ride them all I am bleeding at your backdoor tonight I'm the lone gunfighter dying from a bullet Take me into the light Your fairytale heart, scarred Outlaw to play the part Bleeding at your backdoor tonight How many times, Lord how many times Have I made my getaway yeah 'round your backdoor come sunrise I could make believe it's hard to see in your eyes I'm neither saint nor sinner now just another lover From a life long gone by If you'd wish me well that would be right and kind But maybe this dream is the only thing real that I could ever get right Now, I'm bleeding at your backdoor tonight I'm the lone gunfighter dying from a bullet Take me into the light A fairytale heart, scarred Outlaw to play the part Bleeding at your backdoor tonight This gunslinger has played his part Bleeding at your backdoor tonight Make believe

She call down Your pretty garden

Cathedral spire rising higher Pretty light from the city shining bright No need to fear, these old ghosts round here Just Alexandra falling tonight Lexi's going down, Lexi's going down alright Lexi's going down, Lexi's going down Bravery to spare, the wind in her hair Let the truth become you at these blinding heights No need to fear, brand new ghosts found here Just Alexandra falling tonight CHORUS It's harder than heaven, don't you know The farther you get the harder it goes It's harder than heaven You will will learn to know CHORUS

Closer Closer, than we ever could before Closer, how could I want more Closer, I hear that melody that I seek Sweet lyric you will speak Grab my soul to keep My hand next to your heart Your heart always on my mind My mind cannot not think about you Cross your heart I creep Grab your soul to keep Don't let me go, na na now Don't let me go, now my baby Don't let me go, na na now My baby

Such a high road woman you're living I felt the hunger, the need to feed With you so far above me I stole some fruit from the low hanging tree This apartment that we keep Ain't nothing but a battleground Tonight how can I expect to sleep My heart is shattered by a bulletround Infidels, sinners and mystics The company I like to keep It's all over, over Your firing is squad is loaded and it's taking its aim at me You kept a close watch over me You are fueled by vain and pride But there's nothing I'd rather do Than turn the truth back into the lie This apartment that we keep Ain't nothing but a battleground Tonight how can I expect to sleep My heart is shattered by a bulletround Infidels, sinners and mystics The company I like to keep It's all over, over Your firing is squad is loaded and it's taking its aim at me Visionaries, rebels and misfits The kinda guys I'd like to believe But it's over, all over Your firing squad is loaded and it's ready, waiting on me I line up, you lie down And you grin, and I frown I feel the silence all around Hear a pin drop, deadly sound Beads of sweat on my brow The firing squad is ready to shot me down Infidels, sinners and mystics The company I like to keep It's all over, over Your firing is squad is loaded and it's taking its aim at me Visionaries, rebels and misfits Kinda guys I'd like to lead But it's over, all over Your firing squad is loaded and it's ready, waiting on me Vigilantes, vagabonds, villains The company I keep It's all over, over Your firing is squad is loaded and it's taking its aim at me Shoot me down

There’s a place, there’s a child Watching two lovers walk down The Aisle Wondering if true love is true Baby, it's always been about me and you Forget walking down Madison Ave. In the city, people say You can't beat living the Madison way Bright lights and fashion to kill the blues Baby, it's always been about me and you Forget walking down Madison Avenue No need to tell me what a diamond can prove So long Madison Ave. HARMONICA Upon a time, long ago Your daddy bought his girl the world, we both know Born and raised from a silver spoon Baby, it's always been about me and you Forget walking down Madison Ave. There's a silence, peace of mind Most locals don’t see it and just keep walkin' by It’s something you feel through and through Baby, it's always been about me and you Forget walking down Madison Ave. There’s a place, there’s a child Watching two lovers walk down The Aisle Wondering if true love is true Baby, it's always been about me and you Forget walking down on Madison Ave. No need to tell me what a diamond can prove So long, Madison Ave. Baby, it's always been about me and you Forget walking down Madison Ave.

Tell me Brother, what you gonna do When the world that you seek turns on you Are you solid, can you make a stand Or are you just a make believe rocketman Tell me Brother, oh don't ya know Just how deep that the rabbit hole can go Straight to the bottom, right from the top The traveler unknown cannot stop Lose the past, begin again You are the end, you are the end Forget the future, Brother Amen You are the end, you are the end Whisper Brother, the spells you speak Will twist, turn and into your heart will creep You will continue to get what you got If you continue to think what you have always thought CHORUS

Take a dance, feel like a million Take a chance, feel like a million too I was hoping that you'd come through for me Everyday, all through my life In every way, through every inch of this strife I was hoping that you'd come through for me Maybe I'm wrong, baby maybe I'm right But girl I'm just workin' it right here tonight I don't know what you been told But I know that you're my woman or at least I've been sold Take a dance, feel like a million Take a chance, feel like a million too I was hoping that you'd come through for me Maybe I'm wrong, baby maybe I'm right But girl I'm just workin' it right here tonight I don't know what you been told But I know that you're my woman or at least I've been sold Take a dance, feel like a million Take a chance, feel like a million too I was hoping that you'd come through for me I'm so happy that you're here with me Some romance would mean the world to me
