The Woods

Na-na, oh, na-na
Oh, na-na-na-na-na

One man's trash is another man's treasure
One stays gone, wasn't tryna stay home
One man's walls might feel like a prison
Some live dyin', but I'm dyin' for livin'
Some folks stayin' out in the woods, and I'm gettin' in 'em

Don't judge a book by its cover 'cause people look different
Don't shut 'em down, you never know what you're missin'
Some people find love, some love fightin'
Some lay with the lambs, and some roar with the lions

What floats your boat might sink mine
And what makes me smile might make you cry
You might get low, I might stay high
To each their own, ain't that right?

One man's trash is another man's treasure
One stays gone, wasn't tryna stay home (tryna stay home)
One man's walls might feel like a prison
Some live dyin', but I'm dyin' for livin' (dyin' for livin')
Some folks stayin' out in the woods, and I'm gettin' in 'em

Na-na, oh, na-na
Oh, na-na-na-na-na

Some people ballroom dancin', some people twerkin'
Some work on trash like a Kardash' surgeon
Some mountain don't, some mountain do
Some love the monkeys, some have 'em and move

What floats your boat might sink mine
And what makes me smile might make you cry
You might get low, I might stay high
To each their own, ain't that right?

One man's trash is another man's treasure
One stays gone, wasn't tryna stay home (tryna stay home)
One man's walls might feel like a prison
Some live dyin', but I'm dyin' for livin' (dyin' for livin')
Some folks stayin' out in the woods, and I'm gettin' in 'em

Na-na, oh, na-na
Oh, na-na-na-na-na
Na-na, oh, na-na
Oh, na-na-na-na-na
Na-na, oh, na-na
Oh, na-na, oh, na-na
Oh, na-na, oh, na-na
Oh, na-na-na-na-na

What floats your boat might sink mine
And what makes me smile might make you cry
You might get low, I might stay high
To each their own, ain't that right?

One man's trash is another man's treasure
One stays gone, wasn't tryna stay home (tryna stay home)
One man's walls might feel like a prison
Some live dyin', but I'm dyin' for livin' (dyin' for livin')
Some folks stayin' out in the woods, and I'm gettin' in 'em

Need This

Took the Cal coast down to Mexico
Found a little trouble with nobody we know
Had to get away, blow a little smoke
See a little skin down in heaven below

I'm like "Hey man
We ain't gotta feel so bad"
He's like "Amen
These are days we can't get back"
(1-2-3-4)

Drop those bags, let's get down to business
Didn't drive all night just to witness
Light me up like twelve days of Christmas
All I know is right now I need this
Wake up, sun's out, shoes off, my goodness
Sippin' seaside, I call it fitness
Too damn young, too much fun to quit this
All I know is right now I need this

Na na I need this
I wanna feel it
Na na I need this so bad

Woke up in a haze, still a little high
Listen to the waves as the clouds roll by
"Could You Be Loved" playing on repeat
Making big plans, doing nothing for weeks

I'm like "Hey man
We ain't gotta feel so bad"
He's like "Amen
These are days we can't get back"
(1-2-3-4)

Drop those bags, let's get down to business
Didn't drive all night just to witness
Light me up like twelve days of Christmas
All I know is right now I need this
Wake up, sun's out, shoes off, my goodness
Sippin' seaside, I call it fitness
Too damn young, too much fun to quit this
All I know is right now I need this

Na na I need this
I wanna feel it
Na na I need this so bad

Na na
I wanna
Na na, we ain't gotta feel so bad
Na na, hey hey
I wanna
Na na, these are days you can't get back
(1-2-3-4)

Na na I need this
I wanna feel it
Na na I need this so bad
Na na I need this
I wanna feel it
Na na I need this so bad

OMW

Did you mean to call me? Or was that just a pocket dial?
Just another pocket dial, infamous pocket dial
And if you meant to call me, I just can't speak now
The way that I can speak now, my environment's too loud

But I was thinkin' 'bout you early on today
Must have felt the frequency
Must have felt that energy
Might be connected to me

When you see that OMW, OMW
Believe I'm on my way, yeah
Hell yeah, I'm on my way, yeah
When you see that OMW, OMW
Believe I'm on my way, yeah
Hell yeah, I'm on my way, yeah
Hell yeah, I'm on a plane, yeah
Only a half a day away, yeah
Put a smile on your face, yeah
When you see that OMW, OMW
Believe I'm on my way, yeah
Hell yeah, I'm on my way, yeah

Sittin' on a runway, all I want is you
Can't wait to get my hands on you, it's a countdown
Burnin' up the highway, time is tickin' slow
We been waitin' so long, it's about to go down

'Cause I been thinkin' 'bout you every night and day
Must have felt the frequency
Must have felt that energy
Might be connected to me

When you see that OMW, OMW
Believe I'm on my way, yeah
Hell yeah, I'm on my way, yeah
When you see that OMW, OMW
Believe I'm on my way, yeah
Hell yeah, I'm on my way, yeah
Hell yeah, I'm on a plane, yeah
Only a half a day away, yeah
Put a smile on your face, yeah
When you see that OMW, OMW
Believe I'm on my way, yeah
Hell yeah, I'm on my way, yeah

On my way, yeah
On my way, yeah
On my way, yeah
On my way, yeah

Someone I Used to Know

Hometown hero at the bar
Burned out, high life super star, you know
Kept a buzz to fill the hole
Loved the lights and stole the show

Someone I used to know
Would stay another round
Someone I used to know
Ran himself in the ground

It's been a long time comin'
Couldn't keep on runnin'
Had to hit rock bottom to know
When you keep on losin'
With the path you're choosin'
And it's time to let go
Of someone that I used to know

Of someone that I used to know

Rides the high that tears him down
Hates himself and loves the crowd
The king of fools a heavy crown
He didn't know he almost drowned

Someone I used to know
Would stay another round
Someone I used to know
Ran himself in the ground

It's been a long time comin'
Couldn't keep on runnin'
Had to hit rock bottom to know
When you keep on losin'
With the path you're choosin'
And it's time to let go
Of someone that I used to know

It's been a long time comin'
Couldn't keep on runnin'
Had to hit rock bottom to know
When you keep on losin'
With the path you're choosin'
And it's time to let go
Of someone that I used to
Someone that I used to
Know, know, know

(Know, ooh)

Me and the Boys in the Band

Yeah, I'm king shit, that's what I thought when I was young
I knew everything 'til my know it all found out I didn't know too much
So I had a big piece of humble pie, and bought a ticket to a show
I found a new perspective, some brand new friends, and I found my first real home

We all put our pants on one leg at a time
Oh, struggle's real, so here's the deal
Ain't no one gettin' out alive

So we dance all night (dance all night)
A little pickin' too (a little pickin' too)
We take the weight of the world and lift it right up off of you (that's what we do)
Oh, you got a broken heart, just need a getaway for a good time
I got good news
That's what me and the boys in the band were born to do, oh

You could spend your whole life however you see fit
Writin' at a desk, diggin' in a ditch, who's ass you gotta kiss?
So come on now, jump right in 'cause life goes by so fast
How many summers do you have left before you pushin' up the grass

Come and dance all night (dance all night)
Do some pickin' too (a little pickin' too)
I'll take the weight of the world and lift it right up off of you (it's just what we do)
You got a broken heart and just need a getaway for a good time
I got good news
That's what me and the boys in the band were born to do

We all put our pants on one leg at a time
Oh, struggle's real, so here's the deal
Ain't no one gettin' out alive

So we dance all night (dance all night)
Do some little pickin' too (a little pickin' too)
I'll take the weight of the world and lift 'it right up off of you (it's just what we do)
You got a broken heart and just need a getaway for a good time
I got good news
That's what me and the boys in the band were born to do
Come and dance all night (dance all night)
Do some pickin' too (a little pickin' too)
I'll take the weight of the world and lift it right up off of you (it's just what we do)
You got a broken heart and just need a getaway for a good time
I got good news
That's what me and the boys in the band were born to do, ooh

Finish What We Started

I'm standin' at these crossroads, tryna find myself
Walls are full of pictures and memories on the shelf
Never thought that I was ever gonna be here
Tearin' all these walls down, made from my mistakes
Tryna build a new home, one without the pain
Every story ends, never thought I'd say this

Let's finish what we started, babe
Finish what we started
And not go down that road that we always did
Let's take our mistakes and try to make it right
We were younger then
Let's finish what we started 'cause I know now what I didn't know back then
It's breakin' my heart but we're both gonna be alright

Lookin' at the future, not lookin' for the blame
Didn't make us happy livin' different ways
I would die for you but I couldn't stay here
Look at all the love we built
It will carry on and on and on
And even though this hurts, this will lead us to better days

Let's finish what we started, babe (let's finish what we started)
Finish what we started and not go down that road that we always did
(Let's finish what we started)
Let's take our mistakes and try to make it right
We were younger then (let's finish what we started)
Let's finish what we started 'cause I know now what I didn't know back then
(Let's finish what we started)
It's breakin' my heart but we're both gonna be alright

Oh-oh
Let's finish what we started, babe

Standin' at these crossroads, tryna find myself
Lookin' at the future

Let's finish what we started, babe (let's finish what we started)
Let's finish what we started, babe
Finish what we started and not go down that road that we always did
(Let's finish what we started)
That we always did
Let's take our mistakes and try to make it right
We were younger then (let's finish what we started)
Oh, we were younger then
Let's finish what we started 'cause I know now what I didn't know back then
(Let's finish what we started)
I didn't know what then
It's breakin' my heart but we're both gonna be alright

Oh-oh
(Let's finish what we started)
Be alright
Oh-oh
(Let's finish what we started)
Alright
Oh-oh
(Let's finish what we started)

Let's finish what we started, babe

God Given

Gucci bag, stacks on stacks
Diamonds fill up the champagne glass
Veyron whip, G5 high
You have class that they just can't buy

When I was starved at the bottom, strong comin' in twos
Then the legs dressed to help me in the miracle shoes
Amazing, playin' to win with the way that you walk
All stone-cold woman, glidin' through like a boss
Let's go, shit
To the middle, it's the way your hips ride the little dimples
It's the small of your back, it's a fantasy land
Damn, gotta understand you make me feel like man

Gucci bag, stacks on stacks
Diamonds fill up the champagne glass
Veyron whip, G5 high
You have class that they just can't buy
'Cause damn, girl, what you got is God given
'Cause damn, girl, what you got is God given

I don't know if you notice you're as fine as you are
Don't understand how you keep raisin' the bar
You know everybody wants to know who you are
I can't, I can't wait to get you into my car
Ooh, they think that they hot but they want what you got, baby, yeah
Ooh, they think that they hot but they not, when you're comin' out

Gucci bag, stacks on stacks
Diamonds fill up the champagne glass
Veyron whip, G5 high
You have class that they just can't buy
'Cause damn, girl, what you got is God given (God given)
'Cause damn, girl (woo), what you got is God given (oh)

What you got (what you got)
What you got is God given
Tell me, what you got (what you got)
(Come on) What you got is God given
Ooh, they think that they hot but they not (hot) when you're comin' out

Gucci bag, stacks on stacks (come on)
Diamonds fill up the champagne glass
Veyron whip, G5 high
You have class that they just can't buy
'Cause damn, girl (come on), what you got is God given
'Cause damn, girl, what you got is God given (what you got is God given)
'Cause damn, girl (damn), what you got is God given
'Cause damn, girl, what you got is God given

Warrior

No one's born to be a warrior
No one born an average man
We made one or the other
And we try to understand
Try to understand

He will long for the feelings
Standin' strong with his brothers before the enemy
He will miss the quiet pride
Of his men at his side as he leads them into victory

He can wash the warpaint off his face
And learn to love a bitter broken place
But nothing quite compares to the taste
He can't replace it, no, no, no

No one's born to be a warrior
No one born an average man
We made one or the other
And we try to understand
Try to understand

Warrior, warrior, warrior
Warrior, warrior, warrior

The pain takes a backseat
For a cause, with no applause
From his country
No service leaves him lesser
When he loses his suppressor
And the pain that comes is deafening

He can wash the warpaint off his face
And learn to love a bitter broken place

No one's born to be a warrior
No one born an average man
We made one or the other
And we try to understand
Try to understand

Warrior, warrior, warrior
Warrior, warrior, warrior
Warrior, warrior, warrior
Warrior, warrior, warrior

We're all born in hospitals from different states
To moms and dads who work and pray
That we'll be saved, amazing grace
The chosen few get shipped away
For one more mile and one more day
To harvest souls and bear the weight
And reap the tax that must be paid

(Warrior, warrior, warrior)

No one's born to be a warrior
No one born an average man
We made one or the other
And we try to understand
Try to understand

Warrior, warrior, warrior
Warrior, warrior, warrior
Warrior, warrior, warrior
Warrior, warrior, warrior

Shoofly Pie

I'm gonna give you the wheel
I'm gonna let you drive
But you gotta make me a shoofly pie
You gotta make me a shoofly pie

Don't forget the sweet molasses
I won't leave a crumb
And you don't you just sit there laughin'
'Cause you know how bad I need some
You know how bad I need some

Of that shoofly pie
Shoofly pie
Shoofly

Well, you can make it for me in the mornin'
I like it if it's hot or cold
You can make it for me in the evenin'
Baby, when the sun is gold
You can make it in the evenin' when the sun is gold

You can make it if the house goes late
Yeah, you give it to me right on time
Well, I like it in the kitchen, in the livin' room, driveway
I don't mind if the house on fire
Don't care if the house on fire

Give me that shoofly pie
Shoofly pie
Shoofly pie
What I made before, biscuits and wine
But I always have room for that shoofly

Well, I like it in the middle of the night
Under the stars and the moon
And I get so high on your ever-lovin' pie
I like it from June to June
Yeah, I like it from June to June
Well, I must be blessed 'cause I had the best
And I seen a light comin' through your dress
And all my friends they understand why
Kick and cry, wouldn't mind dyin' for just a piece of that heavenly

Beautiful shoofly pie
Just a little bit of shoofly pie
Want another piece of shoofly pie
Can I get a little shoofly pie?
Baby, have a little shoofly pie
Just a little bit of shoofly pie
Don't keep me waitin' on your shoofly pie
Oh, I need a little shoofly pie
What I made before, biscuits and wine
But I always have room for that shoofly

Already On Fire

She was a Northern girl
Left out on her lonesome in the cruel world
She was thumbin' out from Vegas, off of standin' curves
In this town full of ashes, I know I found a pearl, found a pearl

The heat of summertime
We were fast and reckless and we were runnin' wild
There was no one to touch us, yeah, her heart was mine
She was ready to rev it, and she was lookin' fine, lookin' fine

Let's burn something beautiful
Yeah, we burned, now it's unstoppable

'Cause you can't light a match that's already on fire
No, you can't take it back once you've cross that wire
She's not goin' down unless she's goin' down in flames
No, you can't light a match that's already on fire

On fire

The smell of gasoline, her smile reflected to find the smell of gasoline
She's a smoke show, a-raging like you ain't never seen
She was ready to rev it, and she was lookin' mean, lookin' mean

Yeah, we burned something beautiful
Gettin' burned, and it's unstoppable

'Cause you can't light a match that's already on fire
No, you can't take it back once you've cross that wire
She's not goin' down unless she's goin' down in flames
You can't light a match that's already on fire

(Her silhouette's a vision as she's walkin' from the flames
Been a force of raw destruction, from an early age
No one knew what happened, the night they found a crime
The smoke and ash in a tiny orphan hand as the flames were risin' high)

You can't light a match that's already on fire
You can't take it back once you've cross that wire
She's not goin' down unless she's goin' down in flames
No, you can't light a match that's already on fire

Leaving Love Behind

Although the years have changed now, and we go by different names
I remember the sound of our roof in the rain
And my mind goes back in time to a place so far gone
Where the love we left behind us was still new

We were listening to the record on the end of your bed
Not giving thought to where it was all going
And I wished right then and there so badly I could read your mind
Just so I could know the things that you were knowin'

I believe, yes I do
The hardest part is always leaving love behind
I believe, yes I do
That everything we lose will be a gift in time
But the hardest part is leaving love behind

When it was time to say goodbye, those words came down like stones
I admit, for so long after, it was hard to feel at home
We would hear the highway's song shiftin' down in the night
I was grateful that the echoes broke the quiet

I believe, yes I do
The hardest part is always leaving love behind
I believe, yes I do
That everything we lose will be a gift in time
But the hardest part is leaving love behind

The sun fades on me now and I miss you like words can't know
And I missed my shot at dying young a long time ago
It's just a lesson learned in love, it's not angry it's not sad
Some time you have to lose somethin' to know what you have

I believe (I believe), yes I do
The hardest part is always leaving love behind
I believe (I believe), yes I do
Oh, that everything we lose will be a gift in time
(I believe) I believe, (yes I do)
The hardest part is always leaving love behind
