‘Score’ — #Lyrics To A Country-Pop Song

This definitely has a pop-country vibe to it. Too bad it’s impossible to break into the music business at my age, especially the way I’m doing it.
Oh well.

‘Score’
Lyrics by Shelton Bumgarner

I knew the score with a roar
When I met you at the high school door
You were my type I knew without a doubt
No one caught my eye the way you did

The score of our life flashes across my eyes
You’re always going to score the goal
When you I go for a roll in the hay
It was a score ago but it could have been today

I scored the game putting down
the scores of your fame
No one else to blame
for what happened next
We were necking in the backseat
before you took off your cleats

The score of our life flashes across my eyes
You’re always going to score the goal
When you I go for a roll in the hay
It was a score ago but it could have been today

(bridge)
No need to tell me what happens next
Love and heartbreak go hand in hand
But sometimes things work out
And you have to put your fears down

It was all a score ago I’m afraid
Now I look into your eyes one last time
Cause I know the score for sure
No one tells you how this game will end
But maybe that’s besides the point
When the score is tied

‘Write A Book’ — A Lyrical Homage To Taylor Swift Songs

The thing with this one is while tonally it’s an attempt at a Taylor Swift type song, it’s not properly done structurally. But the conceit is pretty good. I think.

‘Write A Book’
Lyrics by Shelton Bumgarner
@bumgarls

Tapping my pen to pad
I see you across the coffee shop
And you smile
I smile back
‘Cause you seem
You seem like my type
That is
Out of sight

But will you walk over
And ask me my name
What would be the shame
You could make history
Or you could just

Write a book
Write a book
Write a book

I get up and walk your way
Hoping you’ll tell me what I wanna hear
What your name
What’s your claim to fame
But I walk on by without a sound
Feeling a little bit let down

But one day maybe it’ll change
Maybe one day my dream will come true
No more nightmares for me
I’ll be in the clear with someone dearl
Someone who wants to kiss
Instead of

Write a book
Write a book
Write a book

(bridge)
The truth is
Why is life so unfair
I have to wait for fate to arrive
Someone who makes me sigh
Waiting by the phone
With a grone

But in the end
All I can think is
I’ll find my name in a book
Knowing that a smile lead someone to

Write a book
Write a book
Write a book

‘millennial burnout’ — #Lyrics To A Pop Rock Song

Just like trying to tell a story in verse meant to be sung.

millennial burnout
Lyrics by Shelton Bumgarner

The sky’s the limit on my student loan debt
But don’t you fret I got a cat to pet
She’s a real cutie with a nice booty
Let’s me feed her avocado toast
While our clothes are at the laundromat
We’re too poor to buy a house
It’s all part of

millennial burnout
millennial burnout
millennial burnout
millennial burnout

We’re fighting a two front war
Living with our folks with a roar
People think we’re lazy
But I just think they’re hazy
‘Cause I work two jobs with a degree
Won’t someone take care of me

The jet set worry about their miles
While I’m rolling my eyes
‘Cuase I got not staycation on my horizon
I’m so broke I can’t get no help
That student loan debt is making me flip

millennial burnout
millennial burnout
millennial burnout
millennial burnout

(bridge)
X marks the spot
Out out it ain’t coming out
Maybe in the year 3000
I’ll have it all figured out
But for now
All I can say is
I got

millennial burnout
millennial burnout
millennial burnout
millennial burnout


‘Do You Got A Man’ — #Lyrics To A Dance Pop Song

This is just me letting off steam. No one cares. It’s supposed to be a pop rock song.

Do You Got A Man
Lyrics by Shelton Bumgarner
@bumgarls
Please give credit if you produce or perform

I see you walking near me
The way you strut is making it rough
Making it rough for me to ignore your stuff
So all I gotta say much to my dismay is

Do you got a man?

Do you got a man?
What’s his name?
What’s his game?
Do you got a man?
Let me ask you one question
Do you got a man?
Do you got a man?
Do you got a man?

Other girls got boys on their arms
I know if I chat them up a risk harm
But you’re a babe for all to see
So not knowing your status
Is really letting me have it

I promise if you’re free
I won’t say anything to make you flee
But I might ask you out
That’s for sure without a doubt

Do you got a man?

Do you got a man?
What’s his name?
What’s his game?
Do you got a man?
Let me ask you one question
Do you got a man?
Do you got a man?
Do you got a man?

(bridge)

Once you’re mine
It will be sublime
Other people will know
Don’t you know
So they don’t have to ask
That I’m your man

Do you got a man?
Let me ask you one question
Do you got a man?
Do you got a man?
Do you got a man?

‘Peaches’ — #Lyrics To A Dance Pop Song

I feel bad for the singer Peaches that Trump would sully her name with his stupid “you can call it peaches” quote about the wall, so here what are meant to be dance pop lyrics.

Peaches
Lyrics by Shelton Bumgarner
@bumgarls
Please give credit if you produce or perform

You can call it whatever you like
You can call it peaches if you like
If helps you fuck the pain away
But no matter what you say
No matter what you do
It’s still fucking wall

Peaches won’t separate us
Peaches taste so good
Let’s eat them not built them
Peaches won’t separate us
Peaches taste so good
Let’s eat them not built them

Don’t you worry
Don’t you fret
The best of peaches is to come
But these peaches are based on love not hate
You’ve just got to see what freedom is
To accept my plea

Peaches won’t separate us
Peaches taste so good
Let’s eat them not built them
Peaches won’t separate us
Peaches taste so good
Let’s eat them not built them

(bridge)
Bridge peaches with a smile
Overcome your peaches fears
A latter is all you need
Nice and strong and ready to come
When asked

Peaches won’t separate us
Peaches taste so good
Let’s eat them not built them
Peaches won’t separate us
Peaches taste so good
Let’s eat them not built them

AOC — #Lyrics To A Rock Song

I’m using the AC/DC song T.N.T as the basis of this one, but you could probably — with a producer and some tinkering — come up with something that had its own beat structure.

AOC
Lyrics by Shelton Bumgarner
@bumgarls
Please give credit if you produce or perform

She’s a girl from The Bronx
Will walk you like a dog
If you don’t get along
Her plan is to help the poor fight, fight, fight
Here’s her name so don’t you forget
She’s AOC

She’s the future I tell you
AOC, AOC, AOC, AOC
Going to slay the patriarchy
AOC, AOC, AOC, AOC
AOC, AOC, AOC, AOC

Bring the spirit of JFK, RFK, MLK to the fore
She’s here to rock and roll
If you have any reason to forget
She’ll remind you of her name, don’t you fret
From the block wearing hoops on her ears
She’s AOC, AOC, AOC

She’s the future I tell you
AOC, AOC, AOC, AOC
Going to slay the patriarchy
AOC, AOC, AOC, AOC
AOC, AOC, AOC, AOC

(Bridge)
Maybe she’ll be POTUS one day
But for now she’ll clap back when you attack
Just because you’re stupid
Isn’t her affair
She just wants what is fair
She’s the future I tell you
AOC, AOC, AOC, AOC
Going to slay the patriarchy
AOC, AOC, AOC, AOC
AOC, AOC, AOC, AOC

Very Cool — #Lyrics To A Pop Rock Song

This is dumb. No one reads any of these or if they do they think they suck. But I can’t help it that Trump generates song titles and concepts without thinking about it.

Very Cool
Lyrics by Shelton Bumgarner
@bumgarls
Please give credit if you produce or perform

I can get away with anything
If I do it, it’s very legal, very cool
I rule this land with a very shaky hand
But like I said

I’m very legal
I’m very cool
I’m very legal
I’m very cool
And I rule

When will it start to sink in
That you’re going to be my friend
It shouldn’t be so difficult to see
That you were meant for me
I can make you an ambassador
I can land a man on the moon for you
What more do I have to do

Women let me blow their minds
The rails of success can’t hold me
‘Cause I’m bigger in life than on the TV
I’m always going to be kind of your heart
Make your eyes dart, dart, dart
When things break down you’ll see

I’m very legal
I’m very cool
I’m very legal
I’m very cool
And I rule

[bridge]

If I do it
It’s not illegal is what they say
So if we get all freaky
Then the only laws we break will
Those of sin
Where to begin, where to begin

I’m very legal
I’m very cool
I’m very legal
I’m very cool
And I rule

‘Individual 1’ — #Lyrics To A Dance Pop Song

Individual 1
Lyrics by Shelton bumgarner
@bumgarls
Please give credit if you produce or perform

Paid my bills ‘cause I had my thrills
My fixer does the hard work while I play
Running the country leaves me in dismay
While my enemies are in despair
Women come and go when you’re at the top
When you’re

Individual 1

We’re all here for a short amount of time
History may not repeat but it does rhyme
I lie in bed all day lying with my words

But I’m individual 1, individual 1, individual 1
Individual 1, individual 1, individual 1, individual 1
I’m at the top of my game
If you need someone to blame it’s not me
The buck stops with everyone
But not with me, but not with me

I’m in control of the nuke codes
If I sneeze wrong everything you know goes
The smoke will make you choke, choke, choke
And winter will never end, believe you me
Russia will always be in my heart
Girls who give me golden in showers be best
My main chick doesn’t give me what I request

We’re all here for a short amount of time
History may not repeat but it does rhyme
I lie in bed all day lying with my words

But I’m individual 1, individual 1, individual 1
Individual 1, individual 1, individual 1, individual 1
I’m at the top of my game
If you need someone to blame it’s not me
The buck stops with everyone
But not with me, but not with me
I’m telling you one last time
I can spin on a dime
Bright as can be when you’re me
People will look the other way
Even when you’re a risk to the world
They may fret but they’ll be my bitch
‘Cause of the power of the office
When you’re individual 1

They let you do it
They let you do it
They let you do it

‘Shut Down’ — #Lyrics To A Rock Song

I have no idea what I’m doing and I only write song lyrics to let off some steam. That’s it. So, it’s not like I expect anything to come of writing this. Just like to tell stories in verse.

Shut Down
lyrics by Shelton Bumgarner
@bumgarls
please give credit if you produce or perform


the sun is setting
we’re all betting on our next paycheck
if we don’t get it we’ll be a wreck
but don’t you fret
not one bit
the shut down will be over just yet

the shut down is causing waves
the shut down may last until our graves
our leaders are shut down from our cries
how long until our demise?

I’m not ready to swim into the blue
people know the truth
the devil’s in the details isn’t it
don’t you think we’re too old
to squabble over something so bold

the shut down is causing waves
the shut down may last until our graves
our leaders are shut down from our cries
how long until our demise?

[Bridge]
open up the government
I demand it I say
why is it so difficult for something to easy
to be made is my refrain

now is the time for the powers to greet
maybe let a few people make ends meet
when will this shut down end
don’t know my friend
don’t know my friend
don’t know my friend

‘The Donald’ — #Lyrics To A Rock Opera

This is my attempt to tell the story of the 2016 presidential campaign in verse. It’s very casual and very rough draft, but the song titles came fairly easily and it’s a rock opera, not a musical like Hamilton. But if you’re interested, I’d love to flesh this concept out with someone who, like, knows music and stuff. I’m sure someone out there is going to do exactly what I’m attempting but they’ll actually have the know-how to do it right.

Most of this is really, really bad. But I see this is just a rough draft. I wish someone would help me actually do something with this.

This first one is meant to set up the character. Again, this is barely a first draft. But I have some time on my hands and it seems the 2016 does lend itself to a rock opera of some sort. I just wish I could find someone who knew music to help me.

Donald J. Trump
lyrics by Shelton Bumgarner
@bumgarls
please give credit if you produce or perform

a ‘small loan” from my dad
and I was ready to bet
been on your set since before Lennon’s death
I’m the man of your dreams don’t you fret
they call me The Donald
got my name on everything under the sun

they call me The Donald
I’ll sell you an invisible bridge
’cause I’m The Donald
The Donald
The Donald

I’m not going away
you’re going to respect me
others come and go
I’m here to stay
people claim to know me
want to scold me for being a fool
they’re just losers ’cause I rule
drool all you like you
I’m ready to hit a home run
bold is my style
when I’m not breaking my bank

dreams are meant to come true
so what am I to do
but throw down the gauntlet
proclaim myself the best to lead
this great nation
into the darkness
we’re going to make America great again
by tearing it down
with an exclamation

they call me The Donald
I’ll sell you an invisible bridge
’cause I’m The Donald
The Donald
The Donald

[bridge]
in my heart
it’s very dark
I used to be in on the joke
now that’s all up in smoke

I’ve always got a plan
making money is what I do
though I lose it just as quick
but it’s other people’s money
and I’m a big dick

they call me The Donald
I’ll sell you an invisible bridge
’cause I’m The Donald
The Donald
The Donald

This one is meant to explain the origins of Trump’s run for office. As I understand it, Trump legend has it that him being picked on at the White House Correspondence Dinner made him so mad he wanted to run for president. (Thanks Seth Meyers.)

They’ll Laugh At You
lyrics by Shelton Bumgarner
@bumgarls
please give credit if you produce or perform

don’t run for president
don’t you dare
they’ll think you’re a joke
you’ll end up a punchline
the whole country will laugh and laugh
making you regret your act
they’ll laugh at you

they’ll laugh at you
I’m telling you straight
they’ll laugh at you
they’ll laugh at you
they’ll laugh at you

Meyers and his ilk
up at the podium smirk and mug
hoping you’ll get up and run
you have to sit there and take it
even though you’ve got the goods on Obama
know for a fact his Mamma knows the truth
he was born in Kenya and a Muslim to boot
they’re all laughing at you
they’re all laughing at you
they’re all laughing at you

now’s your chance
to turn their laughter upside down
make a run for it
a run for the summit
they’ll put you on Rushmore soon enough
once you get into the Electoral College
you’ll lance the boil
of a father who was way too cold

they’ll laugh at you
I’m telling you straight
they’ll laugh at you
they’ll laugh at you
they’ll laugh at you

[bridge]
in all seriousness
you’ve got to get going
time is not on your side
you’re not getting any younger
if you don’t move fast
they’ll laugh at you

so now we’re ready to go
you’re going to explode
popularity is your thing
the people will sing your name
not a dry eye in the scene

This is meant to be when Trump opens his campaign and rants about Mexicans.

Sending Their Worst
lyrics by Shelton Bumgarner
@bumgarls
please give credit if you produce or perform

they’re a crisis on the border I tell you
rushing across into our nation
rapists and murders escaping justice
don’t know when it’s going to end
the losers in Washington can’t get it done
so I’m going to build a wall
to keep out the worst

they’re sending their worst
dark and dangerous
that’s who they are
they’re sending their worst
they’re sending their worst
they’re sending their worst

taking your jobs
leaving you on the curb
coming after all you hold dear
you have so much to fear
I’m the only one who can keep it clear

let me lob another attack
with me in charge things will change
law and order will be back
all your fears will be eased
you’ll have a job ’cause of me

they’re sending their worst
dark and dangerous
that’s who they are
they’re sending their worst
they’re sending their worst
they’re sending their worst

[bridge]
It’s all a lie
I know the truth
but I’ll make some money
be a star the way I want
all my dreams will come true
I’ll laugh and laugh

so give me your vote
we’ll drain the swamp
we’ll at last be on top
with me in charge we’ll stop them from

sending their worst
sending their worst
sending their worst

With this one, I just like the idea of talking about the conspiracy that Trump’s camp was involved in throughout the campaign.

Get Me Roger Stone
lyrics by Shelton Bumgarner
@bumgarls
please give credit if you produce or perform

he’s the man to get the job done
we’ve got a shot of winning this
won’t run from my fate
there’s just one man I know
who can get us across the finish line first
get my Roger Stone

get me Roger Stone
get him on the line
he’s got the dark arts down pat
we’re in it to win it
for that we need Roger Stone
get me Roger Stone
get me Roger Stone
get me Roger Stone

I’m not going to lie
he’s my kind of guy
always up to dirty tricks
the type that gets your opponent licked
he’s a go-to guy for Russian spies
when this all ends he’ll have a grin

Roger Stone and I go way back
far into the darkness that you can’t see
but together our future is bright
we’ll be ruling the roost with all our might
just need a little bit of his juice
the type to give us a boost

get me Roger Stone
get him on the line
he’s got the dark arts down pat
we’re in it to win it
for that we need Roger Stone
get me Roger Stone
get me Roger Stone
get me Roger Stone

[bridge]
Roger will rush the Russians
no one has to know
might not even work
but what’s wrong with a little flirting
with an enemy of the state
if we win on the right date

Roger can get it done
I’m expecting my phone to ring
with him on the other side
ready to sing

This one is about the shenanigans at Trump Tower.

Take A Meeting
lyrics by Shelton Bumgarner
@bumgarls
please give credit if you produce or perform

I love it
especially later in the summer
I love it
especially later in the summer

daddy’s always been good to me
gave me power over the company
as the election approaches
ready to make my name
going to meet “about adoptions”
if you know what I mean
love to take a meeting
later in the summer

I love it
especially later in the summer
I love it
especially later in the summer
love to take a meeting
love to take a meeting
love to take a meeting

no one will ever know
that adoptions are just for show
we’re here to connive
on the sly
with the Russians to get a leg up
with dirt they release

maybe we’ll be able to drive a stake
into Hillary Clinton’s campaign
by the end of the summer we’ll be on a path
to 300 electoral votes
dad will be so proud
finally give me the love I desire
won’t just be another son for hire

I love it
especially later in the summer
I love it
especially later in the summer
love to take a meeting
love to take a meeting
love to take a meeting

[bridge]
who am I kidding
why do I even try
I could hand the presidency on a platter
to old man
he’d just wink and nod

you never can tell
try not to dwell
my old man could win just yet
all our problems will be solved
I call your bet

This one is meant to be a dance pop song about Trump’s dumb campaign slogan.

Build That Wall
lyrics by Shelton Bumgarner
@bumgarls
please give credit if you produce or perform

they’re sending their worst I tell you
it’s time we do something about it
I’m not going to rest
until we have a way to make your wish come true

it’s a white elephant
obvious to anyone who can see
but it’s not my money
what does it matter to me

build that wall
have Mexico pay for it
build that wall
have Mexico pay for it
build that wall
have Mexico pay for it
build that wall

we’re all going to live in a prison
one of our own making
but we’ll all be so proud once we’re in it
something there is that loves a wall
at least with my voters I know so well

it’s a white elephant
obvious to anyone who can see
but it’s not my money
what does it matter to me

build that wall
have Mexico pay for it
build that wall
have Mexico pay for it
build that wall
have Mexico pay for it
build that wall

[bridge]
never expect to win
but I’m riding the tiger
where it stops no one knows
if it’s at the White House
well, so it goes

build that wall
have Mexico pay for it
build that wall
have Mexico pay for it
build that wall
have Mexico pay for it
build that wall

Another song about Trump’s dumb campaign slogans.

Lock Her Up
lyrics by Shelton Bumgarner
@bumgarls
please give credit if you produce or perform

she’s got so many emails
floating out there I believe
Russia if you’re listening
send them out
all I gotta say is
lock her up

lock her up
she’s broken the law
lock her up
if I’d one half the stuff she’d done
I’d be in jail
lock her up
lock her up
lock her up

here I am a man of the people
hoping you’ll listen to me
all the ships at sea can you hear me
when push comes to shove
I think you’ll agree
it’s time to
locker her up

we’re all citizens of the republic
but she’s above us all
’cause she’s got the gall
I’m ready to call a vote
if you’ll just shout

lock her up
she’s broken the law
lock her up
if I’d one half the stuff she’d done
I’d be in jail
lock her up
lock her up
lock her up

[bridge]
let me go
keep me free
I may have broken the law
colluding with a foreign power
but no one has to know
until I win

when this is all over
and I’ve lost
I’ll have so much to shout about
making money hand over first
without a doubt

This another song about a frequent retort during the 2016 campaign.

But Her Emails
lyrics by Shelton Bumgarner
@bumgarls
please give credit if you produce or perform

people gather round and listen to me
I’ve got a voice and things to say
I may be a liar for all to see
but at least I don’t have emails
weighing on top of me

but her emails
is all I gotta say
but her emails
we’re just getting started
but her emails
but her emails
but her emails

no matter what I say or do
people know in their heart what I’ll do
those emails are more important than my lies
it shows Clinton’s a crook
gotta vote for The Donald
yes you do
I’ll bring bring back the jobs
what else can you do

I’m in the clear
let me tell you
we’re all going to win the lottery
once I’m in power
we’ll finally get a chance to lock her up

but her emails
is all I gotta say
but her emails
we’re just getting started
but her emails
but her emails
but her emails

[bridge]
never use email
no not once
all I do is tweet out my crimes
knowing no one will give a fuck

when this is over
and it will be soon
I’ll be raking in the dough
basking in the sun

This one is about the Access Hollywood tape.

Grab Them By The Pussy
lyrics by Shelton Bumgarner
@bumgarls
please give credit if you produce or perform

I can’t help myself
I gotta step out (of bounds)
gotta grab and strut
show ’em that I’m tough
put a tick-tack in my mouth
after that it’s a black out

grab them by the pussy
is my thing
grab them by the pussy
will make me a man
grab them by the pussy
grab them by the pussy
grab them by the pussy

people look at see
what I say in private
get mad at me
why would do they that I ask
it was obviously just a joke
it was a crass piece of gas

but I’m no loser
never been one that’s just not me
going to say I’m sorry
hope this will all go away
so I can be the winner in the end

grab them by the pussy
is my thing
grab them by the pussy
will make me a man
grab them by the pussy
grab them by the pussy
grab them by the pussy

[bridge]
what am I going to do
they’re on to me
maybe I’m really going to lose
but that’s the plan all along
you know, don’t you?

in the end
you just don’t know
maybe one day people will regret
that they have me another chance
but not this time
this time I’m on top again

This is about the second Comey letter, the one that sank the Clinton campaign for good.

Second Letter
lyrics by Shelton Bumgarner
@bumgarls
please give credit if you produce or perform

you’ve been very bad I must say
we’re going to give your emails a second look
maybe you did something wrong
we don’t know
so we’re going to poke around again
don’t you know

a second letter is here
one to knock you down
a second letter dear
a second letter for you to fear
a second letter
a second letter
a second letter

I think you’re going to win
not to write this letter would be a sin
so here I am hurting you so
but you’re a winner
don’t you know

we’re all going to laugh about this
in the near future I can feel it
people will look back and say
he did the right thing at the time
much to everyone’s dismay

a second letter is here
one to knock you down
a second letter dear
a second letter for you to fear
a second letter
a second letter
a second letter

[bridge]
my conscious is clear
I know I did the right thing
there’s no way you’ll lose
is there

things rushing towards the end
I guess then we’ll know
if I should I have written
that second letter or no

This one is about Trump’s closing argument.

What Have You Got To Lose?
lyrics by Shelton Bumgarner
@bumgarls
please give credit if you produce or perform

the end is neigh
we’re all going to die
so listen to me
as explain my closing offer
what have you got to lose?

I’m not ready to end this debate yet
we’re all going win this tonight I say
why would you worry that I’ll doom us all
when I can say to you with all honesty

what have you got to lose?
what have you got to lose?
what have you got to lose?

how could it possibly get worst than now
don’t even know where the president was born
so like me say with a roar I’ll change things
when all is said and done
what have you got to lose?

what have you got to lose?
what have you got to lose?
what have you got to lose?

[bridge]
you’ve got everything to lose
I have no idea what I’m doing
just a bozo with a voice
a guy you wouldn’t trust with a dog
here to lead you into the dark

what have you got to lose?
what have you got to lose?
what have you got to lose?

This one is about how Trump didn’t expect to win.

Election Night

please give credit if you produce or perform

the results are coming in
looks like I’m going to win
what have I done
how am I going to spin this
victory into defeat

election night
here we are
victory is assured
election night
election night
election night

everything is going to change
the Russians will know
how I bent their will
that will be hanging over my head
what am I going to do
what am I going to do
what am I going to do

we’re all in this together
I should feel light as a feather
but things aren’t as they seem
the weight of the world is now on me

when this is over what will I do
how will I explain the nature of
my victory
people won’t understand
that I just wanted to win
they’ll think it’s a sin
a sin, a sin, a sin

election night
here we are
victory is assured
election night
election night
election night

[bridge]
this is not want I expected
did not want this outcome
feel like I’ll soon be on the run
victory is defeat
I will soon meet my fate

what happens next is anyone’s guess
I’ll be president soon
God bless
when January arrives a new life begins
all my lies will come back to haunt me
is all I know

This one would be something of a codex.

Winter For The Donald
lyrics by Shelton Bumgarner
@bumgarls
please give credit if you produce or perform

winter has arrived
the sky in falling I’m afraid
much to my dismay I have to tell the truth
as Mueller’s army rules the roost
what am I going to do
the truth will will out

winter is here
winter is here
winter is here

I’m not prepared to fight the last fight
people better than me have cracked
now it’s up to me to cast out the dark
hopefully find life in the light

it’s not within me to do such a thing
I live within the dark
the light is not my friend
winter’s darkness won’t last forever

winter is here
winter is here
winter is here

[bridge]
spring is coming soon
how will I survive
once the rains arrive
now it’s time to make plans
for when I’m behind bars

once the summer arrives
I could be back in New York
a prisoner of my own making
high up in the tower
I so love
forever remembering what once was
