A collab wiffa Canookian friend:

Picture on the Wall
c. '16 Vlayman

She looks just a little bit like you
And I swear that wasn't intentional
You knowed I always used to be true
It's just our love weren't all that conventional

Spittin' image don't really do 'er justice
It ain't the footage what tells the tale
Doya amember when it were just us?
I do not know, how to explain the fail

Many mens, would say I made some kinda mistake
Lookin' at her, they would not see anything of you
But when she smiles I always do a double-take
And I ain't lie, again, I'm-a tellin' my troof

CHPicture on the wall says it all
Picture on the wall It says everthing
says it all
To me

Dorine Grey sits on the walls of my memory
I see you there, you lost it all
My new baby comes, and stays, and makes a new man of me
I ain't worried, no, about the fall

CH

So you wanna say, I'm a phony that way
It ain't you I'm makin' love to in the night
But it don't pay, to do what others say
And I feel like I'm doin' all right

CH x2

Auvver wit' da Canookian:

Real Men (Don't Cry
c. '16 Vlayman

Feeling men don't feel the things I feel
Real men don't feel the things I feel
Feeling men don't feel the things I feel
It ain't real


I'm tellin' ya the troof
I'm tellin' my troof
I'm tellin' ya the troof
I don't cry


Real men don't feel the things I feel 3
Feeling men don't feel the things I feel
Real men don't feel the things I feel
It ain't real

SHAP-SHAF
c. '17 Vlayman

The devil speaks so sweet
He'll have you today
He knows how to take you completely-54
The devil knows just what to say

Saints have a past
But sinners have a future

Your demon thinks you are sweet
He's gonna bring be you on home
Your demon drinks and can't be defeated
He'll never leave you alone

My ghost haunts me real sweet
I know she wants to be you
My ghost just can't compete
No matter what she do

Cry for Me
c. '17 Vlayman

Ooow
Kiss me

Kiss me
Ooow
Kiss me
Like I'm dead
And cry a little

Oh, won'tcha cry a little for me
won'tcha cry a little for me

Ooow
Do ya taste my
Do ya taste my tears?
My tears

Cry a little for me 4x

Well my story's over
But tell it it again
Tell it over and over
Tell all my friends
over and over
and ask 'em to

Certain Person
c. '17 Vlayman

Every small town I ever been to seems to have the same truth,
Small town boys,
Small town girls
Small town people trying to figure where they belong in the world.

Every dirty city I ever been to seems to have the same truth,
Dirty city boys,
Dirty city girls
Dirty city people trying to figure where they belong in the world.

(kick)
The only Person seems certain is you
The only Person completely certain seems to be you 2x

Solo

Everyone I ever known gets through life just the same, it's true,
with some pain,
with some shame,
All the beautiful people trying to figure where they belong in the world don't know what to do.

Craig has this list he keeps in his underwear drawer, right next to his pistol and a cuppla spare clips. One night, a certain paid-for guest was looking for gold - Acapulco or metal, didn't matter - and stuck the list in her bag and then later spilled that at police HQ. In the course of the investigation of the deaths of a number of her "clients", see. Turns out, she had used that list to hire some help of her own, and when asked she spilled the names of the guilty ...
