Lyrics HOLD EVERYTHING
'TILL I COME HOME;
NO MATTER HOW LONG
I'M GONE.
DON'T BE TEMPTED
BY THEIR MONEY
AND BOOZE;
NOBODY'S
GONNA FILL MY SHOES.
WHEN I GET BACK
I WON'T EVEN KNOCK;
'CAUSE
THE SAME OLD KEY
FITS
THE SAME OLD LOCK.
HOLD EVERYTHING
'TILL I COME HOME;
NO MATTER HOW LONG
I'M GONE.

HOLD EVERYTHING
'TILL I COME HOME;
NO MATTER HOW LONG
I'M GONE.
DON'T TRY TO SELL
OUR LITTLE OLD SHACK,
JUST KEEP IT
'TILL I GET BACK.
JUST KEEP EVERYTHING
IN APPLE SHAPE;
IF YOU FEEL TOO FRISKY
JUST PUT ON THE BRAKES.
HOLD EVERYTHING
'TILL I COME HOME;
NO MATTER HOW LONG
I'M GONE.

HOLD EVERYTHING
'TILL I COME HOME;
NO MATTER HOW LONG
I'M GONE.
JUST MEET HIM
AT THE DOOR
WITH A FORTY-FOUR
AND TELL HIM
I MIGHT GET SORE.
IF THEY ASK
FOR A DATE,
JUST SHOW THEM
THE GATE;
AND IF
THEY DON'T LIKE IT,
TELL 'EM
THEY'RE TOO LATE.
HOLD EVERYTHING
'TILL I COME HOME;
NO MATTER HOW LONG
I'M GONE.

HOLD EVERYTHING;
I'M A-COMING HOME;
NO MATTER HOW FAR
I ROAM.
WHEN I RETURN,
WE'RE GONNA BE ALONE.
WE'LL FORGET
I'VE EVER BEEN GONE.
WHEN I GET BACK,
IF YOU'VE BEEN SWEET;
WE WON'T EVEN HAVE
MUCH TIME TO EAT;
HOLD EVERYTHING,
'TILL I COME HOME;
NO MATTER HOW LONG
I'M GONE.

Lyrics I TRIED SO HARD TO BE THE WAY
YOU WANTED ME TO BE,
TO GIVE YOU THINGS YOU WANTED MOST,
BUT STILL WE DISAGREE.
EACH TIME I TRY TO CHANGE MY LIFE
TO FIT THE WAY YOU LIVE,
I FIND THAT YOU JUST MADE NEW PLANS
FOR MORE THAN I COULD GIVE.

FATE HAS PLANNED
A PLACE FOR GIRLS LIKE YOU
WHO TORTURE GUYS LIKE ME
AND THE TIME
FOR ALL BAD THINGS TO END
WILL SURELY COME TO ME.
THE WORLD WILL TURN ITS BACK
OF THOSE WHO NEVER CAN BE TRUE
AND YOU'LL FIND OUT
THAT FATE HAS PLANNED
A PLACE FOR GIRLS LIKE YOU.

THE PAST
HOLDS NO FOND MEMORIES,
JUST WAIT
AND YOU WILL SEE,
THAT ALL I EVER GOT FROM YOU
WAS ONLY MISERY.
YOU KNOW
I WASTED HALF MY LIFE,
AND IN YOUR AGONY,
THE HEARTACHES
YOU CAUSED ME TO BEAR
SHOULD LAST ETERNALLY.


FATE HAS PLANNED A PLACE
FOR GIRLS LIKE YOU
WHO TORTURE GUYS LIKE ME
AND THE TIME
FOR ALL BAD THINGS TO END
WILL SURELY COME TO ME.
THE WORLD WILL TURN
ITS BACK OF THOSE
WHO NEVER CAN BE TRUE
AND YOU'LL FIND OUT
THAT FATE HAS PLANNED
A PLACE FOR GIRLS LIKE YOU.

Lyrics HOW MANY TIMES
HAVE YOU HEARD
SOMEONE SAY,
IF I HAD HIS MONEY,
I WOULD DO THINGS
MY WAY
BUT LITTLE THEY KNOW
THAT IT'S SO HARD
TO FIND,
ONE RICH MAN IN TEN,
WITH A SATISFIED MIND.

ONCE I WAS WINNING
IN FORTUNE AND FAME
EV'RYTHING
THAT I DREAMED FOR
TO GET A START
IN LIFE'S GAME.
BUT SUDDENLY
IT HAPPENED,
I LOST EV'RY DIME
BUT I'M RICHER
BY FAR
WITH A SATISFIED MIND.

MONEY CAN'T BUY BACK
YOUR YOUTH
WHEN YOU'RE OLD,
OR A FRIEND
WHEN YOU'RE LONELY
OR A LOVE
THAT'S GROWN COLD
THE WEALTHIEST PERSON,
IS A PAUPER AT TIMES,
COMPARED TO THE MAN
WITH A SATISFIED MIND.

WHEN LIFE HAS ENDED,
MY TIME HAS RUN OUT,
MY FRIENDS
AND MY LOVED ONES
I'LL LEAVE
THERE'S NO DOUBT
BUT ONE THING
FOR CERTAIN,
WHEN IT COMES
MY TIME,
I'LL LEAVE
THIS OLD WORLD
WITH A SATISFIED MIND.

Lyrics SOMEDAY
YOU WILL FIND
THAT THE WORLD
HAS LEFT YOU OUT
NO TRUE LOVE,
NO NOTHING,
JUST ROAMING ABOUT.
WILD PARTIES,
ROUGH PEOPLE,
AND A COLD HEART WITHIN,
AND EACH TIME
YOU ARE DANCING
YOU ARE WALTZING WITH SIN.
YOU ARE SATAN MADE OVER
IN PERFECT DISGUISE
UNFAITHFUL,
UNWORTHY,
AND OH,
SO UNWISE.
I PITY THE HEART
OF THE NEXT GUY YOU WIN,
LIKE ME
HE WILL BE LOSING
WHILE WALTZING WITH SIN.
