about

The Musician Strikes Back - We want you to write a sequel. A song that picks up where another famous song left off. (2 minute minimum) (they had 8 days)

We are going to define "famous" by making you pick a song that has at some point been on Billboard's Top 20 for at least 1 week. This gives you a lot of options while making it easy for the judges to say if your song was "famous" enough.

Examples Of Songs With Sequels:
"Peggy Sue" & "Peggy Sue Got Married " by Buddy Holly
"It's My Party" & "Judy's Turn To Cry" by Lesley Gore
"Space Oddity" & "Ashes To Ashes" by David Bowie

There were more details that were not covered in the original challenge. For instance, you do not have to match the style of the original song. If you decide to do that, be careful not to plagiarize the original tune.

Us can use Billboard lists from different countries & different genres. And you have to use a singles list. You can't pick an albums list & take a song from a popular album. The song itself has to be on a singles chart.

Track Name: Chris Cogott - Roadward Bound
Mmmmm mmmmmmmm lai la la la lai
Mmmmm mmmmmmmm lai la la la lai

It feels good to be home
But I've been sitting here too long
The railway station calls my name
Everybody thinks they know exactly how I'm feeling

Is there still room for a one man band
Who's destination clearly lies across the land
I'm back on the road that's where I belong
And this time I'm taking my love with me

I'm bringing all my nicotine patches
I ain't bringing any cigarettes or matches
'Cause I don't smoke anymore
My guitar and magazines are all I need
But nowhere as much as the girl I love

Is there still room for a one man band
Who's destination clearly lies across the land
I'm back on the road that's where I belong
And this time I'm taking my love with me

I'm singing songs in places see all the strangers faces
I'm sorry that I've been away so long
And the night always ends too fast
I look forward to the next time
Now I'm gonna make this journey last

Is there still room for a one man band
Who's destination clearly lies across the land
I'm back on the road that's where I belong
And this time I'm taking my love with me
And this time I'm taking my love with me
Track Name: Edric Haleen - O! Say Can You See?
O! say can you see, now that morning has broken,
The flag that was there when the sun disappeared?
The flag of a land of which poets have spoken;
That ancestors forged and defenders revered.

O! say does that star-spangled banner yet wave
O’er what they would know?
What they fought to make so?

A land in which ev’ryone gets to live free.
A land where the people can be what they’ll be.
A land where you have the right not to agree,
But you know that it’s true
That others can, too . . .

A land where the masses are trusted to see
The directions in which our best interests would be.
We know being happy has no guarantee,
But we’re free to pursue . . .
And others can, too . . .

So say can you see, by the light streaming o’er us,
Our flag that’s endured through the darkest of days?
A flag that’s inspired generations before us
And still beckons now with the hope it conveys.

O! say does that star-spangled banner yet wave
O’er the land that we claim to be?
The land that we aim to be?
A land where all are free?
Track Name: Charlie McCarron - Over The Bridge
I sold my soul where
Only lonely angels would go
Beneath the street to
Lift my spirit high off my feet
But while I take my daily dose of liquid mistake
I feel the sun set
Under my skin

And as the night falls
I hear the pulse of the devil
Beating out his
oo-ee-oo-ee-oo

With a bridge over my head
oo-ee-oo-ee-oo
I keep my dirty secrets hid
oo-ee-oo-ee-oo
Til one day they cut their way to you

Connect my dots
Shake myself and untie my knots
I want to be free from these
Chemical dreams

I know my band of
Patient friends are waiting for me
So I turn my back on
Hollow release

And as the night falls
I hear the wolves of the city
Howl and I sing
oo-ee-oo-ee-oo

With a bridge over my head
oo-ee-oo-ee-oo
The call of the moon I soon forget
oo-ee-oo-ee-oo
Mystical lantern light the dark path through
The song our ancestors once knew
It's calling me back to you
Track Name: Rebecca Brickley - Elderly Dream
When we were young
I knew you were the one
We were crazier then
But then again, who knew what we'd become?

Yeah, we still got it hot
Nothing can ever stop us
We just get better with time
So I don't mind
You're turning seventy five

Cause now we're old and gray
I love you more than yesterday
When I see your wrinkled face
I think my heart just might give way 'cause darling
You're so precious to me
You make me complete
And life is sweeter than peaches and cream
With you, my elderly dream

Let's have a night out
We'll take the shuttle downtown
Buy Denny's with our senior discount
But I'm proud to say that I'd pay full price for you

You're always there
To hold my hand when climbing stairs
I've lost my teeth, you've lost your hair
But we don't care
We're the sexiest pair in the room

And now we're old and grey
I love you more each passing day
And when I see your wrinkled face
I think my heart just might give way
And though we might be losing our minds
I'm deaf and your blind
We're going to be fine
Because we make a good team
You're my elderly dream

And when I look back
On those nights when we first danced
I'm so glad you took a chance on me
Cause I need you more than I can tell

And I hope you know
I'm so thankful for the road
That has led us here
But my dear
The years have treated me well

And now we're old and gray
I love you more each passing day
And when I see your wrinkled face
I think my heart just might give way 'cause darling
You're so precious to me
And you make me complete
And life is sweeter than peaches and cream
With you, my elderly dream

And when I see your wrinkled face
I think my heart just might give way 'cause darling
You're so precious to me
And you make me complete
Life is sweeter than peaches and cream
With you, my elderly dream

When we were young, I knew you were the one....
Track Name: Ross Durand - Folsom Breakout Blues
We busted out of Folsom prison twenty minutes ago
We ran like hell but there's still so far to go
So we jumped us this train and we're tryin to lay low
And we're ridin along while that train whistle blows

I've been listenin' to that whistle for as long as I recall
But I ain't got no idea where this train goes at all
But beggars can't be choosers - after all
You know the bigger we come you know the harder we fall

I guess I've heard this train might go down to San Antonio
Just a hop skip and jump from Mexico
As long it don't stop us out in Reno
Cause I burnt me some bridges down there don'tcha know

Well I'm just grateful for this train to take me anywhere
Wichita or Bangalor I really don't care
Take us far from Folsom, driver, as far as you dare
And I'll be damned if any train ever takes me back there

Yeah I'll be damned if any train ever takes me back there
Track Name: Ryan Ruff Smith - Baby, We're Through
I should have listened to what they said
They called you a cheat
And don't I know it now
It caught up with you somehow

I should have noticed; I should have cared
When you look at me
It's like there's no one there
And now I'm well aware

You never quit your lying
But I'm done sitting here alone and crying over you
Baby, we're through

The gauzy sunset, the fever dream
Are long since past
And it's just worn on me
There's nothing more to see

And every promise and pretty word
Has hardened here
And made itself absurd
Before it's even heard

I don't care what you say
I'm still leaving you any old way
'Cause it's true
Baby, we're through
Baby, we're through

And it is the way you smile
That gives you away
And it is the way you kiss -
Like someone afraid
I'm on to you
Baby, we're through

You never quit your lying
But I'm done sitting here alone and crying over you
Baby, we're through
Baby, we're through
Baby, we're through

I'm leaving you alone
And don't bother coming back home
Track Name: Gweebol - Thank You Mr. Postman
Everyday I'd wait for your knock on my door
But it was never you that I was waitin', waitin' for
You never never had a letter for me
Till one day you came dancin’ down my street...

Mr. Postman
You’ve been my hero, you’ve been my prince
You brought a letter from my missing boyfriend
Says he’ll be coming home in five to ten
Five to ten

He can keep sending those letters, that’s fine
Long as it brings you back and makes you mine
Long as it makes you keep on comin’ around
Because I want to know you now, Mister Postman
Mister Postman

You saw me cryin', and you touched my cheek
Then I heard music, and my knees went weak
You bring sweet words from far away
But I don’t care anymore what they say
What they say

He can keep sending those letters, it’s fine
Long as it brings you back and makes you mine
Long as it keeps you comin' to my door
'Cause you’re the one I’m waiting for, Mister Postman
Mister Postman

Wait a minute Mister Postman
I think you’re the most
Come back when you finish your route
Come back and take me out (Take me out!)

He can keep sending his letters, it’s fine
Long as it brings you back and makes you mine
He can send hundreds of letters, and a hundred more
Cause you’re the one I’m waiting for, Mister Postman yeah
Mister Postman

I hope I'm not being too forward
Track Name: Mitchell Adam Johnson - When Donna Came Back
Look at what you've done
Donna dear
Why did you take so long?
All these years
I'd been waiting for your call
Now it's too late for
Me and you were through
So it seemed
I'd learned to live a lie
Burn a dream
She will never leave my side
I gave up hope on you

Oh Donna
I still Love you
Wanna hold you
Is this the end?
Now you'll never be
Anything but daydreams
Of Love
And of what
Could've been...

Once I called your name
In my sleep
I'll let go of those chains
Love, I'll keep
I could never do to her
What you once did to me

Oh Donna
I still Love you
Wanna hold you
Is this the end?
Now you'll never be
Anything but daydreams
Of Love
And of what
Could've been...

I could never do to her
What you once did to me

Oh Donna
I still Love you
Wanna kiss you
This is the end
Now you'll never be
Anything but daydreams
Of Love
And of what
Could've been...

Oh Donna
Track Name: Inverse T. Clown - Hey, Jessie
I'll warn you as a friend
To keep her close
'Cause there's no tellin' what I'll do
My cute obsession's
Gotten pretty gross
And I'll do anything
To take her from you

Hey, Jessie
I'm not standing by any longer
I'm not the kind of man
I used to be
I won't have many chances
Left to squander
When I get out
Your girl belongs to me

I've missed you both so much
Since I've been gone
I carved her name into my chest
I realized afterward
It's upside-down
But it's the thought that counts
And I did my best

Hey, Jessie
I just can not wait to visit
I'm not the kind of man
I used to be
It's not too late to
Educate you, is it?
I'm sure you'll learn
Your girl belongs to me

Destiny has shined on me
I know I must be with her
Try to stop me this time
And they'll pull you from the river

I'll make her swoon with all
The things I say
And she'll be mine forevermore
'Cause if she ever tries
To run away
I'll throw her down the basement stairs
And lock the fucking door

Hey, Jessie
Get this thru your stupid head, man
I'm not the kind of man
I used to be
As soon as I'm released
You're such a dead man
And when you are
Your girl belongs to me

Hey, Jessie
Let this be your last reminder
I'm not the kind of man
I used to be
No matter where you run
I'm gonna find her
And when I do
Your girl belongs to me
Track Name: Governing Dynamics - Melt In The Sun (So Many Pretty Ways)
I couldn't be what you wanted
What you want is always subject to such change
And I know that you're so tired
Cos you've got a new apartment to decorate
You left the man to keep your pride,
Synthetic plants and earth, but once you were outside
They all just melted in the sun.
They all just melted in the sun.

Give me a sign when the heat is rising
And I will shelter you from ultraviolet rays
Give me a moment to collect myself
We fall apart in so many pretty ways
So many pretty ways

I guess I can't judge by sight or taste
But smell and sound are saying you're real as anything
If we don't touch again I might explode
Ever upward, defying gravity
I wrote you such pretty words
Tried to make them real with a melody
But our love, it just melts in the sun
Our love always melts in the sun

Give me a sign when the heat is rising
And I will shelter you from ultraviolet rays
Give me a moment to collect myself
We fall apart in so many pretty ways
So many pretty ways

And you're melting through my fingers again
I try to sculpt you back together
You'd think I would have learned my lesson back when
We won't stand up to extreme weather
Dead of exposure, should have known better

Give me a sign when the heat is rising
And I will shelter you from ultraviolet rays
Give me a moment to collect myself
We fall apart in so many pretty ways
So many pretty ways
Give me a sign, a shout or whisper
I can no longer see through the haze

Turns out I'm plastic too you
I'm just as fake as you
Track Name: Zarni De Wet - Stacy's Dad
7 AM he turns on CNN
Dabs a little Old Spice on that Chevy Chase chin
He looks at the sheets where his trophy wife lay sleeping

He is frowning in the mirror at his Samuel Adams belly
Looks at her again and wonders does she really want me?
Oh other men would kill to have her
Oh other men would kill to have her

He works in a 3x5 at customer service
He keeps her picture on his desk
Every day a man comes by and says "how'd you get that honey?"
"You must make a lot of money"
Yea you must make a lot of money

Yeah he knows that she has got it goin' on
Everybody is waitin' for her to come home
Yeah he knows that she has got it goin' on
Every man young and old is goin' on about Stacy's mom
Well I don't know bout you but I feel bad for Stacy's dad

Every day is pretty much the same
Everywhere they go everybody knows her name
Boys around the pool say they're hanging out with Stacy
But he knows when honey's home all the boys will soon be aching
So he sends them all home
He has to send them all home

Yeah he knows that she has got it goin' on
Everybody is waitin' for her to come home
Yeah he knows that she has got it goin' on
Every man young and old wants her really bad
Well I don't know bout you but I feel bad for Stacy's dad

Stacy cries "Daddy, all the boys are leaving me!"
"What is it with me? Don't they think I'm pretty as can be?"
He rolls his eyes cuz he knows why
This happens every time

Yeah he knows that she has got it goin' on
Everybody is waitin' for her to come home
Yeah he knows that she has got it goin' on
Every man young and old is goin' on about Stacy's mom
Well I don't know bout you but I feel bad for Stacy's dad
Track Name: Steve Durand - Miranda
We're reunited after all these years
And you survived in spite of all my fears
I thought I lost you on that fateful night
So long ago

Indeed the stars shone brightly in the sky
But not so near as brightly as your eyes
A mix of fear and fervor spurred us on
But that you know

We thought that victory was worth the cost
But in our war for freedom both were lost
The cause we championed has now been forgot
As the world moved on

After that day I laid my rifle down
The drums that haunt your dreams are silent now
And our comrades went their separate ways
Their spirit gone

Oh Miranda
It all seemed so romantic to us way back then
We were young and foolish and we paid the price
In liberty and pain

Oh Miranda
Now that I hold you in my arms again
I can believe that our sacrifice
May not have been in vain

While it is true that we're now old and gray
And scars may fade but never go away
Yet I think that there is still so much
Of life ahead

Now that we're together, free at last
Let's just look forward and forget the past
You return revived a future that
I thought was dead

Oh Miranda
It all seemed so romantic to us way back then
We were young and foolish and we paid the price
In liberty and pain

Oh Miranda
Now that I hold you in my arms again
I can believe that our sacrifice
May not have been in vain
Track Name: Brian Gray - One More Cloud
I don't seem to sleep a lot now when it's raining
I don't need to watch my step, I know this road
The winter snaps at my skin. I guess that I should care, or something
But I don't seem to notice lately when it's cold
Breath embraces the mist, becomes it, hides away in the shadows
There's nothing left but letting go

And then there's one more cloud
Like a final breath into the wind, she dances away
And the tolling echoes loudly
And the raindrops eat away, bite by bite 'til nothing remains
And as the chiming fades it's 3 A.M. I must be lonely

She'd have wanted to be somewhere else that's warmer
She always liked herself a sunny, tropic shore
Who knows? Maybe that's where she'll be carried, maybe not
But this is really not about her anymore
Every word that was said or wasn't, every torturous regret
All I can do is let them go

And then there's one more cloud
Like a final breath into the wind, she dances away
And the tolling echoes loudly
And the raindrops eat away, bite by bite 'til nothing remains
And as the chiming fades it's 3 A.M. I must be lonely

A life in ashes and a raincoat, and immutable, final loss
The simple act of letting go

And then there's one more cloud
Like a final breath into the wind, she dances away
And the tolling echoes loudly
And the raindrops eat away, bite by bite 'til nothing remains
And as the chiming fades it's 3 A.M. I must be lonely
Track Name: Duality - Mars Ain't The Kind Of Place
Unpack my bags... I'm coming home
And home is where my heart is
And I've been gone so long
It's strange that I can't fly
Strange that I can't fly

But now I see, what I could never see
When I flew in the sky
Forever night, every day!
I could not see the stars
But now my nights are everything
The nights will all be mine
Till I'll no longer be
Till I'll no longer be...
...the Rocket Man

My final flight... came to your door
Our home was left as always
'Cos I'd been gone so long
And I had flown so high
I had flown so high

And now I see, what I could never see
When I flew in the sky
Forever night, but now those stars
I see them in your eyes
And now our nights are everything
The nights are yours and mine
And I'll no longer be
And I'll no longer be
...the Rocket Man

This timeless flight
Is done and gone
But you can give me time
And give me peace...

So I will be inside your arms
The only place I long to be
And I will be
Where I can sleep
The Earth will cradle me
And I'll no longer be
I'll no longer be...
Track Name: Danny Blackwell - Like A Family
Tell me what you want
What you really really want
And I'll tell you want I want what I really really want
I want you
I want you
Oh here is a story from zee to A
You wanna break up with me, then just walk away
But first let me say what I wanted us to be before you go

Wannabe like a family
But the love in your heart I never got to see
And I know you thought that you were so hot
But you wanna know the truth
Now, nothings all you got

If you wanna stay with me leave all those false friends
Your big city life is over
And its time to make amends
Let those bright lights roll behind you
And leave those other men
Just let me be your lover
Let forever live again

I wannabe like a family
But the love in your heart I never got to see
And I know you thought you thought were so hot
But you wanna know the truth
Now, nothings all you got

You wanna know how I feel, Well I think that you’re a fake
I only stayed with you for our babies sake
Then I done gone found out
That it's someone elses child
And it was too late to calm you down coz you're running wild

I wannabe like a family
But the love in your heart I never got to see
Even though you thought you were so darn hot
You wanna know the truth
Now, nothings all you got

One day I'm comin' round your house
And I'll slam your body down
I'll put you in the trunk
And drive you all around
You‘ll never ever be
Nothing without me
If only you had been
What I wanted you to be!

Still I wannabe like a family
But the love in your heart I never got to see
Even though you thought you were so hot
You wanna know the truth
Now, nothings all you got

I wanna be…3…with my baby, with you and me
Track Name: Common Lisp - Science (In The Service Of Beauty)
I am a scientist, true. But define "mad."

Once I was blinded by beauty
That I mistook for technology
I loved to play with electronics
Producing all kinds of crazy sonics
But these days I'm a nature lover
Give me a human under the covers

BEAUTY mistaken for
SCIENCE in the service of
MONEY producing new
TECHNOLOGY
Connections, rejections
Maybe too much introspection
Too much to handle
It can't hold a candle to you

Goodness, Miss Sakamoto! Is it really you? Do come in.
My, my, you haven't aged a day!
May I offer you a cup of tea?
You've heard, perhaps, that my little inventions have made me a wealthy man?

My meters are all a-quiver
Your touch gives me the shivers
Now let's conduct an experiment
No never mind, it's completely irrelevant
My vacuum tube's overheated
I've lost my cool, I'm completely defeated

BEAUTY mistaken for
SCIENCE in the service of
MONEY producing new
TECHNOLOGY
Connections, rejections
Maybe too much introspection
Too much to handle
It can't hold a candle to you

ThinkPods and GeekPads
And things that warm up
Devices that vibrate
Chips that make music
Psionics, dildonics
Good old telephonics
Machines that go "bing,"
Science chthonic,
Glowing rectangles
And cables in tangles
Just hop on the network
You don't need to do legwork
To find my location
You don't need cogitation
Texting is peachy
But pheromones can't reach me
Your webcam is online
But that's not in real time
Come over to my place
I can't feel you in cyberspace...

(SYNTH SOLO)

I see your teacup is empty!
Oh, dear, we've run out of sherry as well
Please be careful where you step; the laboratory is awfully cluttered.
It's so hard to find qualified help these days.
What? You say you might be interested in assuming your old... position?

Now your machinery's in order
You can trust me, I'm a doctor
You know that science is dandy
But come on honey, give me some candy
I want to study biology
In specific, your anatomy

BEAUTY mistaken for
SCIENCE in the service of
MONEY producing new
TECHNOLOGY
Connections, rejections
Maybe too much introspection
Too much to handle
It can't hold a candle to you

It was so good to see you, Miss Sakamoto!
Do come back and see me again soon.
Perhaps next time, you might care to have a look at my etchings?
My door is always open.
Track Name: Ben Walker - When I'm A Hundred And Two
Remember I asked you back in the day
If you'd always be as good to me as you were then?
Now that we've made it fading to grey
I'm going to have to ask you the question again

We feel as young as the day we met
We may be getting older but we're not dead yet
So now I'm sixty-four I've got a question for you
Are you going to love me when I'm a hundred and two?

The sweater you made me - it's not very good
I've put it with the other ones under the bed
So let's not do what grandparents should
But do whatever the hell we want to instead

We feel as young as the day we met
We may be getting older but we're not dead yet
So now I'm sixty-four I've got a question for you
Are you going to love me when I'm a hundred and two?

We haven't got much of a pension to spend
When you spread it over fifty-eight years
But Dave and Vera could lend us a hand
And Chuck could probably stretch to a couple of beers

So if you can handle living with me
I'm happy hanging on to such a wonderful wife
But tell me the truth now - what will it be?
Do you want a centenarian man in your life?

We feel as young as the day we met
We may be getting older but we're not dead yet
So now I'm sixty-four I've got a question for you
Are you going to love me when I'm a hundred and two?
Track Name: Duality - Today (Shadow)
Today I can't believe the way
I took what you said yesterday
And turned it into something
That made me want to die

You left, I wept it made no sense
I wrote a song to help with it
But looking back I'm wondering
What happened to my mind

'Cause I can't believe today
That I believed in yesterday

I thought she'd left me half me half a man
But look divided, I can stand
The sun had has broken through the clouds
And caught me in it's rays

Hello Goodbye / Which One
Who cares?
I only know that I'm aware
To see that girl leave me
Send my troubles far away

And I can't believe today
That I believed in yesterday

So you can ask me, "why'd she go
I'll tell you plainly, I don't know
But more than this
I'll tell you
That I don't really care

She's gone, we're done
And I feel fine
The night before
She said goodbye
And now all things In my life's
Getting better all the time

And I can't believe today
That I believed in yesterday
No I can't believe today
That I believed in yesterday
That I believed in yesterday
That I believed in yesterday
Track Name: Danny Blackwell - La Reina (Shadow)
Yo se bien que estoy abajo tu amor es como un atraco
Me comiste como un taco
Por que tu fuiste la reina
A mi me da mucha pena
No no resultas ser sirena

Y si yo fuera el rey
Escribiria en un mague
Tu nombre cual flecha de amor
Me trato como un invasor

How well I know I'm down below
You devoured me like a taco
And you were the queen
You gave all this pain to me
But you are not a siren of the sea

Now if I were to be king
I would write your name within
The leaves of a cactus tree
Like an invader you treated me

Yeah he fell down along the way
But like a king he is today
Jose Alfredo sing with me
For the kings we couldn’t be

Key change

(vocalizing)
Track Name: David Ritter - Cage Of Love (Shadow)
I've been holding on too tight
And I've got to stop or something' s gonna pop

Respondent shall refrain from coming within 100 yards of the Protected Person

But I'm am watching baby
Every move that you make
I'll be watching baby
With each breath that you take

I've built this cage in in my backyard for you
A cage of love
With bars of steel and iron

My special place for you
Right beside the dog poo
Can you taste my love for you?
I love these lyrics why don't you?

There are terms and conditions I can't
Break but I can bend them slightly
By order of respective state and all of it's authority and legislation

I've got to watch you
And I cannot be late
The smiles you fake
The bonds you break

Can't you see
You belong to me
Restraining order renewed
This time I've come unglued
Shrink that tells me to
Just find my happy place
But then I see your face
And every move you make
And every vow you break
And every breath you take
I'll be watching you
I'll be watching you

I've built this cage in in my backyard for you
A cage of love
With bars of steel and iron

My special place for you
Right beside the dog poo
Can you taste my love for you?
I love these lyrics why don't you?
Track Name: JoAnn Abbott - Georgia Morning (Shadow)
All my life she would tell me about
How my mama ran off the night my daddy died
How a dirty judge cut him down to hide his own shame
And my aunt would sneer as she told me that I
Didn’t look like pa and had my mamas eyes
And how she could tell every time that I went and lied

Cause the day is new and the morning light
Is gonna show the world what is wrong from right
The lies you told in the dark
Will come home at last
You cannot hide and you cannot run
Cause I’m gonna see what it is you’ve done
You can try and hide wicked but
It doesn’t stay in the past

30 years later and a part of a team
Comparing old cases with the new ones we’re seein’
Till the day I get a chance to open daddy’s old file
But the bullets didn’t match the gun he had
The DNA said kin- but not my dad
So it had to be another one there from his family that night

Then the hand of God in a hurricane
Washed the Georgia clay from my ma’s remains
And the nearby gun held prints that told us the rest
Told us the rest!

My aunt could tell when she saw my face
That the body she hid without a trace
Had come back home and was pointing right at her
So now my father’s name is clear
My aunts in jail for fifty years
And my mama is layin’ at peace in the local graveyard

Cause the day is new and the morning light
Has shown the world what was wrong from right
The lies you told in the dark
Have come home at last
You cannot hide and you cannot run
Cause I’m gonna see what it is you’ve done
You can try and hide wicked but
It doesn’t stay in the past
You can try and hide wicked but
It didn’t stay in the past
Track Name: Heather Miller - Wouldn't Have (Shadow)
[sitar intro]

I wouldn't have done it
If I'd known he was crazy
I wouldn't have flown
Before he woke up

Norwegian wood costs a lot to install
After the fire I've got nothing at all

My wool rug is gone
It was a gift from my mom
The clock that kept time
Was not even mine

First shift in the morning is quite hard enough
But some lug sleeping in my tub makes the showering rough.

[sitar interlude]

I thought it would be fun
To bring home someone
Now I know why
I shouldn't have done it.
