I'LL KILL YOU IF YOU DON'T COME BACK

From the minute I turned and laid my eyes on you
I had no eyes of my own
I was blind to the world, you were too good to be true
But you were something to see, so very young and alone

And I still don't believe the way you turned on me
Now where's the girl that I knew?
I gave you somewhere to live and then somebody to love
You gave me nothing but trouble, man, I've been such a fool

You gave me nothing at all
Now let me give it to you
You taught me how to be cruel
Now let me try it on you

How do you abuse me? Let me count the ways
How many hours in how many days?
How does it amuse you? Let me count the pain
How many rules breaking how many games?

How do you abuse me? Let me count the ways
How many hours in how many days?
How does it amuse you? Let me count the pain
How many rules breaking how many games?

You got your ass out of gear
And your soul out of whack
Go on and take all your stuff
Don't even bother to pack

In every way I want you out of my life
But I'll kill you if you don't come back
I'll kill you if you don't come back

In the pit of the night you used to pull me so close
And then you'd hold me so tight
And in the wink of an eye you used to give me it all
And with a kiss in the darkness you'd delivered the light

And in the pit of the night I hear you laughing so loud
I know you're laughing at me
Oh ain't it funny and sad, the way I fell for your lies?
The way I fell into love and then I begged to be free

You gave me nothing at all
Now let me give it to you
You taught me how to be cruel
Now let me try it on you

How do you abuse me? Let me count the ways
How many hours in how many days?
How does it amuse you? Let me count the pain
How many rules breaking how many games?

You got your ass out of gear
And your soul out of whack
Go on and take all your stuff
Don't even bother to pack

In every way I want you out of my life
But I'll kill you if you don't come back
I'll kill you if you don't come back...

Somebody bless all the girls in the sand on the beach
They're dreamin' of boys and staying just out of reach
Bless all the cheerleaders down on the track
They're glistening like diamonds with sweat on their backs

Bless all the girls and in gangs on the street
They're looking for danger and they're holding their piece
Bless all the girls staying late after school
They're playing with fire and oh they playing it cool

And bless all the girls who're learning to dance
They stare in the mirror and they conjure romance
Bless all the girls who are always alone
They kneel down in prayer and they wait up by the phone

Bless all the homecoming queens of the night
They're looking for magic in gymnasium lights
And bless all the girls who know what love is about
They try not to cry and then they try to put out

Bless all the homecoming queens of the night
They're looking for magic in gymnasium lights
And bless all the girls who know what love is about
They try not to cry and then they try to put out

Somebody bless all the girls that I never have met
But damn you and curse you after all that you've done
You're the one girl I never forget
You're the one girl I never forget

Somebody bless all these girls and all that they do
But damn me and curse me for still needing you

And I'll kill you if you don't come back

I'll kill you if you don't come back
I'll kill you if you don't come back
I'll kill you if you don't come back
I'll kill you if you don't come back
I'll kill you if you don't come back
I'll kill you if you don't come back.....
