Track Name: Blue Light
Blue light dreamin’
I like leavin’
With the love from another night
I like dreamin’

Wake up baby I’m a gonna fight
Wake up baby I ain’t got all night

Dead man grievin’
What a feelin’
Love from another time
I like dreamin’

Red light baby and I’m gonna fly
Red light baby and I’m gonna fly

Young girls screamin’
I like reelin’
With the love from another night
I like dreamin’

Washed up baby you’re oh so right
Washed up baby kiss me goodnight

Blue light dreamin
I like leavin’
Love from another night
I like dreamin’

Red light baby and I’m gonna fly
Red light baby and I’m gonna fly
Track Name: He Had It Comin'
My baby left me night and day
Runnin’ round the streets
Got himself a low life whore
I just won’t take it no, no more

He had it comin’
He had it comin’
Lord you know I swear it’s true
He had it comin’

He said his love was true
Told me lie after lie
Someone call a doc, I’m mad
Before I do somethin’ real, real bad

He had it comin’
He had it comin’
Lord you know that I swear it’s true
He had it comin’
He had it comin’

2 am I was up in a fit
8 times a week
Drunk again with nothin’ to say
The only game I know is foul play

He had it comin’
He had it comin’
Lord I swear that it’s all so true
He had it comin’
He had it comin’
Oh, yes indeed
He had it comin’
Don’t ya mess with me
He had it comin’
He had it comin’
Track Name: I Sleep Here
Aaay, I’m something else
In a class all by myself
I’m home
Uh-huh

I’m magnificence
Wanna dance?
I got creases in my pants
Uh-huh

I can boil the room
And make the ladies swoon with a nod and kiss goodnight
Uh-huh
And let ‘em all know with my lips that life’s alright
Uh-huh

So who’s gonna be my baby tonight?
I am fearless
So line ‘em up from left to the right

It’s pretty clear
I live alone with bravado
And ignore the phone
Live for the moment - lately feels so bright
And that’s why I sleep so well at night

Aaay, there’s something else
I must confess about myself
Yeah, I’m so cool
Uh-huh

And I just can’t understand
Your hesitated heart in hand
You helpless fool
Uh-huh

I can boil the room
And make the ladies swoon with a nod and kiss goodnight
Uh-huh
And let ‘em all know with my lips that life’s alright
Uh-huh

So who’s gonna be my baby tonight?
I am fearless
So line ‘em up from left to the right

It’s pretty clear
I live alone with bravado
And ignore the phone
I'll admit I’m not immensely bright
And that’s why I sleep so well at night

So who’s gonna be my baby tonight?
I am fearless
So line ‘em up from left to the right

It’s pretty clear
I live alone with bravado
And ignore the phone
It’s obscenely bad and it’s queer
How routinely sad that I sleep here.
Track Name: What Went Wrong
Can’t recollect or explain
What happens when I cause such pain
I’m sorry for remembrin less
But my liver’s sore and my brain’s a mess.

No sense in wondering why
I can’t see out one eye
My favorite shirt’s all ripped
And I lost a tooth and gotta busted lip.

Oh, I’ve been around, so ya don’t have to tell me
Exactly how my charms utterly fail me
I know myself, and I’ve known me for so long

I can guess I’m the reason for strife
I confess I’ve been bad all my life
And that is why I don’t ask what went wrong.

Take, for example, my average weekday riddle:
The bookends are clear, but I can’t recall the middle

Well it usually begins
With the company of good friends
In front of a mason jar
But I wind up in a police car

And everything in between is a fog
I start out a cool cat and I wind up a dog
Calamity’s caused when I wag my tongue

I don’t need to know what was said
But I’m sure I deserve my nose bled
And that is why I don’t ask what went wrong.

I hate to be that guy
‘Cause I’m usually quite shy
But my aptitude to think
Flies out the door when I have a drink

And commence to make a little joke
That comes out foul when my filter’s broke
And innocently assume it’s all in fun.

I’ve learned to accept that the fault is mine
When things turn bad and the fists start to fly
And that is why I don’t ask what went wrong.

And that is why I don’t ask what went wrong.
And that is why I don’t ask what went wrong.
Track Name: I Gots To Have It!
You got what I want
I got what you need
You're giving me pause
You're driving me crazy.

I'm done with my lunch
And I like what I see
Mmmm, your sweet desserts!
I gots to have it.

Oh mama, can't you see what you've done?
Oh mama, can't you see what you've done?
Oh mama, mama, look what you're doing to me!

Your sugary fondant
Is worth diabetes
Your graham cracker crunch
Is down and delicious.

A caramel tart
With a filling so creamy
And a cherry on top?
We should change the bedsheets.

Oh mama, can't you see what you've done?
Oh mama, can't you see what you've done?
Oh mama, mama, look what you're doing to me!

I gots to have it!
I gots to have it!
I gots to have it!
