Track Name: Fool For Love
I ain’t looking for a reason
But I’m spoiling for a fight
Like some dough-headed rich girl
Throwing their guts up on Saturday night
Left your heart in a gutter
Cryin’ on a best friend’s shoulder

You ain’t looking for Jesus
And you don’t dress like Maria
Anyway, what did God give to us but
Poison apples from a tree?
We left our knowledge in the garden
With our clothes in a trash can
I’m a fool for your love
I keep coming back, coming back, coming back

Days drag and the dye it ran
Like butter from your hair
I see you’re wearing news clothes now
And there’s new feet upon your stair
But who am I to implore ya
I’m the one who left you there
I’m a fool for your love
I keep coming back, coming back, coming back

Gate breaks and the knife sticks hard
My fate’s written in your cards
I guess you’re the only one
Who’s seen me with the rising sun
Battle-scarred and torn as such that
Baby you’re the only crutch
I’m leaning on

Got you at my shoulder
You just fell away from my sight
Like a bird in the winter
Who’s feet are tethered in flight
But who am I now to hold ya
You, soul blue and black
And I’m a fool for your love
I keep coming back, coming back, coming back
Coming back, coming back, coming back
Coming back, coming back, coming back
Track Name: You Created A Monster
I'm gonna help myself
I'm gonna spread my wealth
I've been too long weathering your storm
You created a monster, set his heart ablaze
You created a monster, taught him what to say

I'm gonna go where you dream
There ain't no secret I won't gleam
You can't divorce the one you set on course
You created a monster, now let him go
You created a monster long ago

Once up a time we was parts and grease
A few wires trying to connect
Now he's on his knees, doing your stiptease
You created a monster, running through the streets
You created a monster, says his hearts for lease

I have forgotten how to crawl
You've got me scaling all the walls
You're sorry now you showed me how
You created a monster, looks a lot like you
You created a monster, lies just like you do

Once up a time we was parts and grease
A few wires trying to connect
Now he's on his knees, doing your stiptease
You created a monster, running through the streets
You created a monster, says his hearts for lease
