YOU WERE HER LIFE (a duet)

1st verse
 #1
On a lone stone bench
Centered in the park
By a maple tree
Where your name is carved

2nd verse #1
This is where she sits
This is where she cries
We all know her here
We don't ask her why

~~~*Chorus *~~~
*We don't ask her why
They don't ask me why
*She can't get on with her life
I can't get on with my life
*We all know her life was you...
They all know my life was you...
*We don't even try
They don't even try
Look away, and walk on by
*Like she needs us to do
Like I need them to do
*Until she works it through
Until I work it through
~~*~~
3rd verse
 #2
A dark gray casket
Brought you home to me
Sealed up tightly
No way I could see

4th verse
 #2
Touch your handsome face
Touch you one last time
Prove you're really gone
Oh, you were my life

~~~*Lyrical Bridge *~~~
*I wish that she could settle for
I wish that I could settle for
*Your image in her mind
Your image in my mind
*Touching, laughing, crying
*The day you said goodbye
The day we said goodbye
# 1 
Desire kissed insanity
She embraced it like a fool
#2 
I needed proof...
(faded)
 I needed proof...
~~*~~

~~*Finale*~~ 
both
*It's going to take time
Oh, all I need is time
*To reconstruct her life
To reconstruct my life
Oh...
*You were her life
You were my life
~~*~~

NOBODY SLAYS A DRAGON LIKE YOU DO

Nobody slays a dragon like you do
You hop on board, wielding your sword
And then you run em through
Nobody slays a dragon like you do

No one evades the enemy like you
You sneak on by, Let arrows fly
And they don't have a clue
No one destroys the enemy like you

~~~*Chorus*~~~
I miss ya buddy, would you please come play
Take her to dinner on a different day
Cause when you're gone, man I always die
Throw my controller, break down and cry
I'll beg ya buddy, if you want me to
Nobody slays a dragon like you do
~~*~~

Other players don't share lives like you do
They hog em all, just let me fall
Don't care that I am screwed
Nobody gives their lives to me like you

~~~*Lyrical Bridge*~~~
This flipping game
Drives me insane
That's it, I'm done, I'm through
I ran over
My controller
And I am cussing you
~~*~~

(Shout)...I DIDN'T MEAN IT!

~~~*Chorus*~~~
I miss ya buddy, would you please come play
Take her to dinner on a different day
Cause when you're gone, man I always die
Throw my controller, break down and cry
I'll beg ya buddy, if you want me to
Nobody slays a dragon like you do
~~*~~
Hello?  
Buddy? 
Pick up would ya?
Hey man log on!
Hello?
~~*~~
(Crying...)

THIS IS YOUR MAN

This is your man
I pack a gun
I don't want to use it
Don't want to hurt no one
But someone might
Threaten what's mine
I will shoot them for it
And I won't blink an eye

~~*~~
On the table
No hidden hand
This is your man
~~*~~

~~~*Chorus*~~~
This is your man
Heart bared to you
Before the rings 
Are put in place
Before you say I do
Know me, Love me
The good and bad
This is your man
~~*~~

This is your man
I like to drink
I don't over do it
I can still talk and think
But I kick back
I love to laugh
Life can be quite stressful
Sure you can do the math

~~*~~
On the table
No hidden hand
This is your man
~~*~~

~~~*Lyrical Bridge*~~~ 
If there is something you want to change
You might want to try it now
Cause once those rings are slid in place
There's no more of that allowed
I love ya babe, but I like myself
Now if ya want this fellas hand
Know I mean it...
This is your man
~~*~~

~~~*Chorus*~~~
This is your man
Heart bared to you
Before the rings 
Are put in place
Before you say I do
Know me, Love me
The good and bad
This is your man
~~*~~
