I can’t believe that memory
That was going through his head
I wanna take my hands up
Wrap em aroun his neck
He gotta be crazy, cause nobody can pay me
To hurt someone like you
Someone as beautiful as you

And now I’m ad at me cause
I shook his hand, hey
So don’t be mad at me when I
Take his life in my hands
I’m fin to go crazy, and somebody should pay me
To hurt someone like you
Who would hurt someone like you

[Chorus]
I’m taking lives, first gun tonight
For you, you-ou, you-ou, you-ou
I’m busting heads, leaving them for dead
For you, you-ou, you-ou, you-ou
I’ll do anything for you

Would you come visit me when they
Come and take me away
Will you take the stand for me
Right hand to the sky when you say
He was going crazy, somebody had to save me
That’s when I stepped in
Baby tell em what I did, yeah

Tell em the lights went black and
That you couldn’t see a thing
And when the lights came back on
All you saw was me
And I was going crazy, everything was crazy, yeah, yeah, yeah
Tell em what you saw, baby tell it all

[Chorus]
I’m taking lives, first gun tonight
For you, you-ou, you-ou, you-ou
I’m busting heads, leaving them for dead
For you, you-ou, you-ou, you-ou

Tell mom I love her, dad that I’m sorry
My son I’ll be hoem one day
Tell yourself that I love you
Everyday I love you
Even when you can’t see me
Tell mom I love her, dad that I’m sorry
My son I’ll be hoem one day
Tell yourself that I love you
Everyday I love you
Even when you can’t see me

[Chorus]
Cause I took his life, first gun tonight
For you, you-ou, you-ou, you-ou
I busted his head, I left him for dead
For you, you-ou, you-ou, you-ou
I’ll do anything for you
Baby anythign for you
