Won't Let You Go

I ain't ever gonna give you up no no no no. 

I ain't ever gonna give you up no no no no. 

 

Honey, the feeling that you give me is so lovely. 

I yearn for it, I fiend for it, dream about it. 

 

My love needs a nurturer, provider. 

I'm the queen, need someone to stand beside me. 

To ride with, won't bite the hand that feeds. 

 

Ebb and flow. 

Head to toe.

I can feel it in my fingertips, touch me and I lose my wits. 

Loving me just like a good man should. OW. 

 

I ain't ever gonna give you up now, I ain't ever gonna give you up go no no no no no no. 

I ain't ever gonna give you up now oh no no no I won't let you go oh no. 

I ain't ever gonna give you up no no no no 

 

It seems, love is something that requires a team. 

I'm living with a fresh start. 

Dancing on the stars, the cosmos have aligned, my heart is shining we're on fire. 

 

No control, emotion overload. 

Shower me in sweet serenity, bring out all the best in me, loving me just like a good man should. OW!  

 

CHORUS

 

 I ain't ever gonna give you up no no no no  

I ain't ever gonna give you up no no no no 

(I ain't ever gonna) Ebb and flow  

Emotion overload (I ain't ever gonna) 

I feel it in my head to my toes oh no control (I ain't ever gonna) 

I ain't ever gonna give you up no no no no (I ain't ever gonna) 

I ain't ever gonna give you up no no

Train

 

What if I miss the train this time around

What if it rolls right in, then back out again, and I don’t get on?

What if my dreams take me somewhere I don’t want to go?

Somewhere I don’t fit in, get changed and molded, don’t recognize myself anymore

 

Aren’t we all just chugging along x2

 

What if this train misses my stop?

What if I’m just a prisoner of momentum locked inside this big ‘ol box

All of these people, unfamiliar faces, traveling to far off distant places

Maybe they feel trapped too, but learn to make due

survival can come at such high a cost

 

CHORUS

 

oohhhhhhs

 

What if this train don’t have room for one more lonely soul

What if I’m left at the station, thin for patience, with nothing to hope for?

 

CHORUS

Money

Oh money money. x2

 

Drop a penny watch the hungry flock. 

Lick their lips, insatiable, won't stop. 

Clambering to satisfy their need. 

The rich man silently consumed by greed. 

Gonna watch it burn down. 

Oh money money. 

 

(oh) I've got money on my mind when I wake up, money on my mind when I go to sleep. 

(oh) Money on my mind when I'm walking, money when I close my eyes to dream. 

(oh) The machine is an unforgivable monster, don't want to get caught up in the scene. 

Money money money money runs everything. 

I've got money on my mind when I wake up, money on my mind when I go to sleep. 

Oh oh. 

 

I have seen a poor man change his ways, 

the prospect of his ruins rise from flames. 

Tell me now how do you tame a fire 

when it starts flicking licking 'round your hearts desire. 

Gonna watch it burn down. 

 

Chorus 

 

Born and raised, 

loved and praised, 

reveled in the naïve days. 

Oh mercy me the lust and greed can hold a man bring him to his knees. 

Money money can be so funny can taste like honey. 

Slips right into your veins with ease. 

 

(oh) I've got money on my mind when I wake up, money on my mind when I go to sleep. 

(oh) Money on my mind when I'm walking, money when I close my eyes to dream. 

(oh) Money money money money runs everything. 

I've got money on my mind when I wake up, money on my mind when I go to sleep. 

Money on my mind when I'm walking, money when I close my eyes to dream.

Preachers Son

 

You can find him on the run (repeated throughout the song)

 

He ain’t no preacher’s son his momma cries for him at night

(you can find him on the run)

prays to every god above that he’ll find that holy light 

(you can find him on the run)

first taste of sin that boy knew he’d never do no right 

(you can find him on the run)

never obeyed much ain’t that just the bad boy’s plight

 

well that boy’s too far to look back now

he’s to insane just don’t ask how

 

He ain’t no preacher’s son he leaves a trail of broken hearts for fun 

(you can find him on the run)

You’d have to see it for yourself always has one hand on his gun 

(you can find him on the run)

He ain’t harmless, he’s full of charm 

(you can find him on the run) 

locked and loaded of the next unlucky one 

(you can find him on the run)

gets his kicks from his tricks has his tricks gets his fix you won’t find him praying you can find him on the run (you can find him on the run)

 

Darkness ain’t no foe of his that boy he likes to live in the shadows

(you can find him on the run) 

Sneaking through back doors alleyways so his daddy never knows

(you can find him on the run)

quick shot, self taught, bet all he got to win the lot

(you can find him on the run)

He ain’t afraid of the storm he’s electric to the touch

 

refrain

 

CHORUS

 

Bad boy bad boy whatcha gonna do? (repeat)

when they come for you

that boy is running running running running running

(repeat and ad lib)

Shadow

 

Ooh baby

Sneaking ‘round me like a shadow now

I can’t believe the things you’ve done

this raging battle’s far from won

You said, I said, she said settle down

We throw our words round just like knives

Ain’t nobody playing nice

It just ain’t right

 

I try no to look right at the core

Afraid of what I might see

Baby what are you yearning for

and if you can’t get it from me

 

You’ll have to be my shadow shadow oh my

following my shadow shadow oh my every move

shadow shadow oh my

don’t get too close, ‘cause I don’t want to get rid of you

 

ooh baby what the levee breaks the water roars

tampering with the design wasn’t such a good idea in hindsight

don’t give much thought to who’s right or wrong

opinions are a dime a dozen

and I can’t do much with ten cents

oh no I can’t do much with ten cents

So keep your pickles and your dimes

Yo'll just be wasting your time

CHORUS

 

what ever happened to our rapport

the bigger picture the grand scheme

baby what are you yearning for

and if you can’t get it from mr

 

CHORUS

 

Shadow live Shadow die x2

Shadow give shadow try x2

 

repeat
