I've got something with me
My soul's kinda gritty
Now do I lie or run away

Engine engine #9
You get your way
Or I'll get mine
Sure as the sun will shine each day

Just like the apple
Temptress sets in
I win you're tackled
Shackles on my feet won't let me move

Not soft but supple
Come with all you got
My wings won't ruffle
Victory is sweet but I ain't scared to lose

[Chorus:]
In my house the moon still shines in the day
But there's a lot 'a old bills I gotta pay
In my house feel free to dance like it's May
But there's a lot 'a old bills I gotta pay

Tell me can you here me
No more sittin pretty
Ain't gone to shun my heart this time
I know when it really matters
It'll be me
Alone and regrets will be none

Just like the apple
Temptress sets in
I win you're tackled
Shackles on my feet won't let me move
Not soft but supple
Come with all you got
My wings won't ruffle
Victory is sweet but I ain't scared to lose

[Chorus:]

I'll be on my own
It don't matter I'm grown
I won't be singin' no sad song in the lay
And if I rub you wrong
Baby I come on strong
I got no mind to cushion what I say

[Chorus:]
