[VERSE 1]
Freddie said too much love will kill me
But I'd rather use my last breath
To kiss her and be blessed
The man in the mirror calls me silly

[PRE-CHORUS]
She's a goddess
My goddess
She can't be satisfied with
The love of one faithful
Maybe that's why she's
Unfaithful

[CHORUS]
I'm a simple man
Just a lover man
At her feet
I'm a simple man
Just a lover man
My pride died in the tangle of her sheets

[VERSE 2]
Robert said in the light I will find the road
But her eyes are the only path I know
So where should I go?
Guess I need another song to crack the code

[PRE-CHORUS]
She's a goddess
My goddess
She can't be satisfied with
The love of one faithful
Maybe that's why she's
Unfaithful

[CHORUS]
I'm a simple man
Just a lover man
At her feet
I'm a simple man
Just a lover man
My pride died in the tangle of her sheets

[VERSE 3]
My heart said I should sell my soul at the crossroads
Now I'm driving down Route 49
Light-hearted cause she'll be mine
Until the hellhounds break my bones

[CHORUS]
I'm a simple man
Just a lover man
At her feet
I'm a simple man
Just a lover man
My pride died in the tangle of her sheets

Lover Man

[VERSE 1]
John Doe got my number
Written on the back of his hand
He's not in a rock band
But he looks like my favorite drummer
His body keeps my mind faded
But now that our night song is over
Your voice is getting closer
Maybe I'm just sad and naked

[PRE-CHORUS]
The morning after is my fashion weakness
I get dressed and run away
I'm on the runway
With my messy hair and a sick face

[CHORUS]
I do the Walk of Shame
With brand new accessories
Hiding from the memories
Of how we used to be
Catwalk queen, that's the new me
I walk down the street in slow motion
And do the Walk of Shame
Better ashamed than broken

[VERSE 2]
All your pictures are gone
But visions of our past are like paparazzi
So I'm wastin' my time with a guy I met at a party
I feel almost sober, but the show must go on

[PRE-CHORUS]
The morning after is my fashion weakness
I get dressed and run away
I'm on the runway
With my messy hair and a sick face

[CHORUS]
I do the Walk of Shame
With brand new accessories
Hiding from the memories
Of how we used to be
Catwalk queen, that's the new me
I walk down the street in slow motion
And do the Walk of Shame
Better ashamed than broken

[BRIDGE]
My heart is locked and barred, baby
So do it hard, baby
Bring some wild love into the bed
I want him out of my head

[PRE-CHORUS]
The morning after is my fashion weakness
I get dressed and run away
I'm on the runway

Walk of Shame

[VERSE 1]
Seen you with your bitch on the cover of a magazine
Branded as ABW when I make a scene
You're blowin' out the love I failed to bury
Clouds throwin' up the name I used to carry
But I'm standing in the rain, ain't gonna lay low
Revenge is my only chance to see a rainbow
You didn't give a fxxx when I was wailin'
What else could I be chasin'?

[PRE-CHORUS]
I'm dead serious
My laugh died the day you pulled the trigger
And ran away with her
Two can play that game, gon' make it last
Twerkin' on my brand new Huracán, watch me shake it fast

[CHORUS]
I'm takin' half of your shit
Fifty-fifty split
Plus the kitty kitty cat I never liked
Ima get paid in full
Paid in full

[VERSE 2]
Heard you have another baby on the way
Makes me think about your life beyond the bay
Like a low tide kissin' your feet
Missin' you here, I put your song on repeat
Still waitin' for a Part II that may never come
Nothing ever comes from you
Guess your pretty mouth ain't facin' regret
Gotta make you cough up before pressin' reset

[PRE-CHORUS]
I'm dead serious
My laugh died the day you pulled the trigger
And ran away with her
Two can play that game, gon' make it last
Twerkin' on my brand new Huracán, watch me shake it fast

[CHORUS]
I'm takin' half of your shit
Fifty-fifty split
Plus the kitty kitty cat I never liked
Ima get paid in full
Paid in full

[BRIDGE]
Hope she's really worth the price
Cause Ima get paid in full
Paid in full
Paid in full
You won't fool me twice

[PRE-CHORUS]

[VERSE 1]
To be honest
The last pieces of my heart fit in my pocket
Loving ain't one of my skills
There's too many bags in the closet
Too many fears stuck to my skin
Like nicotine patches
And that pain will never fade to ashes

[CHORUS]
Don't waste your time on me
Move on and carry on
Don't waste your time on me
Move on and carry on
Cause I ain't worth it
Love ain't worth shit

[VERSE 2]
Let me explain, I used to be fearless
Foolish like a fairy tale princess
You wish I was still the same
But we can't cheat the game
I fell for him then fell from heaven
Once I hit the ground, I had to learn the lesson
Baby, you're too sweet to be a rebound

[CHORUS]
Don't waste your time on me
Move on and carry on
Don't waste your time on me
Move on and carry on
Cause I ain't worth it
Love ain't worth shit

[BRIDGE]
You've been ghosted
Now you're knockin' at my door instead
Stubborn like a lost puppy
You love me
Yeah, I've heard it
But love ain't worth shit
Stop wasting your time on me
Cause I ain't, I ain't, no I ain't worth it

[CHORUS]
Don't waste your time on me
Move on and carry on
Don't waste your time on me
Move on and carry on
Cause I ain't worth it
Love ain't worth shit

Ain't Worth It

[VERSE 1]
Here we are, staring at the horizon
While the hole in the sky widens
Our carefree days are now over
I don't wanna see you step into the light
But we both know you won't get through the night
Let me carry the sun on my shoulders

[CHORUS]
I'll stay here, my friend
Here until the end
I'll be here, old friend
Here to hold your hand

[VERSE 2]
Here we are, staring at the sunset
Some memories are dancin' with the clouds of July
Please, don't say goodbye cause we're not done yet

[CHORUS]
I'll stay here, my friend
Here until the end
I'll be here, old friend
Here to hold your hand

[BRIDGE]
Hold on, hold on, hold on
Cause once you're gone
I'll never see your smile again

[CHORUS]
I'll stay here, my friend
Here until the end
I'll be here, old friend
Here to hold your hand

Old Friend

[CHORUS]
I just wanna be a part of this world
But no one wants a broken bird
My soul left me down in the flood
People throw me in the mud
I hear so many jokes and jeers
I wish they were drowning in my tears

[VERSE]
They blow the conch shell
And banish me from the City Lights
"You're nothing but a squonk," they yell
"An ugly creature of the night"
(Creature of the night)

I find myself within a dark forest
And I hear a voice ask
"Don't you know who the Black Boar is?"
"One step further and it will be the last"
(It will be the last)

[CHORUS]
I just wanna be a part of this world
But no one wants a broken bird
My soul left me down in the flood
People throw me in the mud
I hear so many jokes and jeers
I wish they were drowning in my tears

[VERSE]
Dry your tears, my dearest child
Grab a virgin and stab that goat
I welcome you to the wild
Let my blood flow into your throat
(Flow into your throat)

I found my beauty
Among the creatures of the night
Angels better not fly close to me
Or their heads will be on a pike
(Heads on a pike)

[CHORUS]
I don't wanna be a part of the herd
"Hail Satan" will be my last words
Darkness led me down to the woods
My whole being bows at Your hooves
I no longer hear jokes or jeers
I'm the dream that drowns them deep in fear
I'm the dream that drowns them deep in fear

Squonk

[VERSE]
Empty nest on the tree branch
Fall has come
Ring on the desk, no romance
Your bag's done
You've become too fussy, darling
I want to hear your footsteps fade away
Flamboyant leaves are falling
It's a brand new day

[PRE-CHORUS]
Goodbye, birds
I got my own voice, I can sing too
I make my own choice, I don't need you
Living life on my terms

[CHORUS]
I may look docile
But I have a bad temper
Baby, I'm a Scorpio
Born in November

I may be hostile
Cause your love ain't a duet
Baby, I'm a Scorpio
Not a pretty pet

[VERSE]
You need to pick up some shirts at seven
"Welcome" doormat
Maybe you've learned the lesson
Wrong weather forecast
Sound of the rain hitting the shed roof
As you ramble on about my flaws
Like I was some deadwood
I don't bother to stifle my yawns

[PRE-CHORUS]
We lost hope last season
Divorce papers are dancing on my bed
I'm feeling like a deb
Freedom, would you be my date?

[CHORUS]
I may look docile
But I have a bad temper
Baby, I'm a Scorpio
Born in November

I may be hostile
Cause your love ain't a duet
Baby, I'm a Scorpio
Not a pretty pet

[BRIDGE]
You want a housewife to feed your ego
Sit down, relax, and watch me go
You want a kept wife to keep you warm
Sit down, don't lie, don't raise a storm

[CHORUS]
I may look docile
But I have a bad temper
Baby, I'm a Scorpio
Born in November

I may be hostile
Cause your love ain't a duet
Baby, I'm a Scorpio
Not a pretty pet

Scorpio

[VERSE 1]
You reminded me of
When the psychedelic rock was on top
I found the Fountain of Youth on your lips
You used to put your hands on me
As if there was nothing more sacred
Than my naked body

[CHORUS]
The sweet love you vowed
Made me feel like I was flying
Until I hit the ground
I can't escape gravity
Just like I can't beat fate
In a Shakespearean tragedy

[VERSE 2]
I gave you my very soul
The only asset that will never be old
But you left me anyway for a girl your age
You forget about me so easily
I'm thrown away like a pagan deity

[CHORUS]
The sweet love you vowed
Made me feel like I was flying
Until I hit the ground
I can't escape gravity
Just like I can't beat fate
In a Shakespearean tragedy

[OUTRO]
I can't escape gravity
I failed to beat fate
In a Shakespearean tragedy

Shakespearean Tragedy
