Track Name: Snakebite
Sometimes you say things
you don’t mean
and it feels like a snakebite
Sometimes you say things
you don’t mean
and it feels like a snakebite

Well, one more time
and I’m out the door baby
One more time
and I’m out that door
One more time
and I can’t be held responsible
One more time
and baby that’s all

That does it
one more time

Say that again
and that’s it, it’s over
Say that again
and we are through
Say that again
and I’ll mail you all your things back
Say that again
say goodbye to me and you

That does it
that does it
that does it
there’ll be hell to pay

Sometimes you say things
you don’t mean
and it feels like a snakebite
Sometimes you say things
you don’t mean
and it feels like a snakebite

I lost a friend today
I lost a friend today
I’m going back to Virginia
I’m going back to stay
I’m going back today
I’m going back to stay
Hey, hey hey
Track Name: She Sets Me On Fire
Well, she’s my grubby little angel
In her white shirt and those faded, faded jeans

There is music in her movements
Her eyes dart around the truth, or that’s how it seems

She can pick me up in one hand
Or put me down with one word

She’s uncut and unpolished, she’s uncontrollable
She’s everything you’ve heard

Then she sets me on fire x lots of times

Even dressed in black she looks like an angel
Standing in the doorway of her own Heartbreak Hotel

If I am superman then she is kryptonite
If she is Tarzan I guess that makes me Jane

She warns that it’s a cruel world
It’s a cruel, cruel world that’s about to get cruel to you

When she tells you life is hard
Something tells you that it’s true

Then she sets me on fire x 100 times

She warns that it’s a cruel world
It’s a cruel, cruel world that’s about to get cruel to you

When she tells you life is hard
Something tells you that it’s true

Then she sets me on fire x 1000000000
