Chickenman

Original and similar lyrics
I am an only child born of the wild Riddled to spend my time defending the land You are the only one born in the sun Riddled to spend your time defending my plan Dead dog on the highway Median cats are growling at me I turn my lights on brighter I'm counting through the night ride And it's one more life for the taker (Chickenman Chickenman) And it's one more song for the maker(Chickenman Chickenman) On the road to Athens I saw a dead deer on the highway I slipped into a desert I killed five prairie dogs and a rabbit I was running down on Queen Street I saw a woman on the sidewalk She was beaten by a stranger Danger danger danger And it's one more life for the taker (Chickenman Chickenman Chickenman hold my hand) And it's one more song for the maker (Hold my hand Chickenman) I was on the road to Austin I met this man on the highway He sold me junk and conversation He was wise and dirty from the weather I said darkness goes into darkness All the carnage of my journeys Makes it hard to keep on giving He said you got a lot of road left child, you better start living Give me one more life then, he said you gotta pay for that Chickenman Give me one more song then, he said you gotta pay for that too Chickenman Give me one more, one more, Chickenman Chickenman Chickenman hold my hand I am an only child born of the wild Riddled to spend my time defending the land You are the only one born in the sun Riddled to spend your time defending my plan I went looking for a car, found myself beneath the stars I went looking for a girl, found a man and his world Amy: Chickenman Chickenman Chickenman hold my hand Chickenman Chickenman Chickenman hold my hand I am an only child hold my hand I am an only child hold my hand Emily: I went looking for a car, found myself beneath the stars I went looking for a girl, found a man and his world Chickenman Chickenman Chickenman hold my hand Chickenman Chickenman Chickenman hold my hand Chickenman Chickenman Chickenman hold my hand (hold my hand) Chickenman Chickenman Chickenman hold my hand (hold my hand) Chickenman Chickenman Chickenman hold my hand (hold my hand) Chickenman Chickenman Chickenman hold my hand

Skeleton Man

Black Frank "Pistolero"
i'm a skeleton i'm a skeleton man hold my skeleton hold my skeleton hand i met a child in the hills from the people of the corn it's been 800 years since this child was born and in his ribs i found a pearl an offering from the corn world hold my hand we'll walk in the hot sun hold my hand in the hot sand down in the valley where there used to be the farms Doctor Digger found a room full of arms and now there's just a dog that barks chained to a one-man trailer park

But For Now

JAMIE CULLUM "Twentysomething"
Sure I know you'd like to have me Talk about my future And a million words or so to fill you in about my past Have I sisters or a brother When's my birthday how's my mother Well my dear in time I'll answer all those things you ask But for now I'll just say I love you Nothing more seems important somehow And tomorrow can wait come whatever Let me love you forever but right now Right now Some fine day when we go walking We'll take time for idle talking Sharing every feeling as we watch each other smile I'll hold your hand you'll hold my hand We'll say things we never had planned Then we'll get to know each other in a little while But for now let me say I love you Later on there'll be time for so much more But for now meaning now and forever Let me kiss you my darling then once more Once more But for now let me say I love you Later on I must know much more of you But for now here and now how I love you As you are in my arms I love you I love you I love you

Girlfriend On Demand

JOSS STONE "Colour Me Free!"
In the beginning You came on so strong You were polite And full of charm You got what you wanted Then it wasn't very long Before you dropped the act And hot became lukewarm You can tell everybody That we're just foolin' around But, baby, don't fool yourself I know what's going down If you won't hold my hand How can you call yourself my man? If I, if I can't meet your friends And your family, how can I be Your girlfriend on demand? If you won't hold my hand Give me one good reason I should sit around and wait If you control my destiny How can I trust in fate? Go ahead, take your time I want you to be free But I won't stay here by your side While you're denying me If you won't hold my hand How can you call yourself my man? And you, see you don't understand What this does to me, how it feels to be Your girlfriend on demand When you won't hold my hand You whisper that you love me But you won't say it out loud You act like you're ashamed to be with me I want a man who's proud Tell me to my face I'm not good enough What could you possibly be thinking of? Why won't you look me in the eyes When we're making love? If you won't hold my hand Then how can you call yourself my man? And you, you don't understand What it does to me, how it feels to be Your girlfriend on demand If you won't hold my, hold my hand Hold my hand It's all I'm asking, baby To hold my hand

Manchild

EELS "Beautiful Freak"
and every time you crave for me i'm, here and anything you hunger for i'll share and i will be quietly standing by while slowly i am dying inside hold me in your arms and let me be the one who can feel like i am a child in love every time i talk to you you're down and every time you need a laugh i'm around and when you forget i'm here i'm not it isn't really me that you forgot hold me in your arms and let me be the one who can feel like i am a child in love whisper now and tell me how you'll watch me and tell me somehow i'm gonna be alright

Save Me

ARCHITECTS "Ruin"
I won't hold my hand out to anyone but you I don't want to trust anyone but you If I am to be saved my anybody I want it to be you I take your hand You'll find hope scribbled onto scrap pieces of paper Like I found fate stuck to the curb Save me now I won't hold my hand out to anybody but you There's still time to get hands around my fucking neck It's time to realize that there is far more to this world that the self loathing you endure You'll find hope scribbled on scrap paper
