Wired wrong

You don't know how hard I tried
To lift your spirits high
Set you free from misery
That pain in your heart
You could never set free

Did you ever care for me?
cos all I really got was your
Dark alleys and windy lanes
Cold blood running through
Your veins
So sorry babe I don't
Ride that train

(chorus)

don't know where your
Heart belongs
You’re upside down
And wired wrong
Can’t fix what's been and gone
Your TV is on but
It’s upside down
And wired wrong


Cold when hot dry when wet
All those lies
Did you think I could forget?
They burn in my memory
There for every one to see
And you ask what’s wrong with me!!

(chorus)
don't know where your
Heart belongs
You’re upside down
And wired wrong
Can’t fix what's been and gone
Your TV is on but
It’s upside down
And wired wrong

Shadows in the wind

Father taught me the rules of the road

He gave a sermon every Sunday night

I sat and watched his heart explode

Said son don’t bother to complain

Ain’t nobody listening anymore

How mamma used to dread Sunday night

She hid away and gently wept

As she awaited the oncoming fight

A fight nobody could win

An everlasting misery, cos you just

Can’t wash the darkness outta your skin

#Chorus#

We’re just shadows in the wind

Forgive me if I have sinned

Don’t forsake me, don’t give in

We’re just shadows in the wind

(drifting out and drifting in

Like shadows in the wind)

An old love showed me that hatred spite

She was confused yet strangely blessed

A world of pain where nothing is right

Going round in circles, stuck on the square

The demons sure got to her

Searching for an exit that just ain’t there

Can’t let the past drag us down

It will twist and tear at your heart

Strip your smile and leave a frown

Gotta move on ahead

Were a long time dead

 

#Chorus#

We’re just shadows in the wind

Forgive me if I have sinned

Don’t forsake me, don’t give in

We’re just shadows in the wind

(drifting out and drifting in

Like shadows in the wind)
