Woah how did I get here My face is in the gutter, why won't you let me in? The world keeps spinnin' around me And I keep turnin’ back Somebody tell me, what kinda place do we live in? Somebody take me to the place I know where the grass grows tall (and all the people are gone) I wanna love it but I know I might fall I need some time (away from home) Woah, how did we get here? It's gotten so bad it makes me wanna live alone The world has taken the wrong turn How do we get it back? Somebody tell me, what kind of place do we live in? Somebody take me to the place I know where the grass grows tall (and all the people are gone) I wanna love it but I know I might fall I need some time (away from home)

The day I met That girl from school She took away my breath And away my faith Everything I did I had no regrets But you gotta know that This ain’t over yet Ohhh what was I supposed to do When all I wanted back was you I wanted what we had, girl You threw it away, girl You threw my heart into the flames, girl I'm tired of games, girl My secret is out I tried to mend What we had You didn't respond You just ignored Everything I did Everything I tried I didn't want to ruin What we had before Ohhh what was I supposed to do When all I wanted back was you Yeah it was you I wanted what we had, girl You threw it away, girl You threw my heart into the flames, girl I'm tired of games, girl My secret is out That girl she threw me to the side of the road and with no mercy dug her nails Right into my back I wanted what we had, girl You threw it away, girl

All the girls and boys play around the black river No one expected a thing Till late one night that river jumped out Took the sherifs’ only son The towns people searched long and they searched hard Only coming up with a boot Still the sherif sits on his porch every night Waiting for the boy to return River, the black river Takes your children away River, the black river Stay away from the water that takes you away 10 years have passed since the boy was lost All but one's forgotten the tail She goes into the woods by herself To find the lost boy Her eyes meet with the beast of the black river She pulls out her sword and stabs that beast before her The lost boy drops to his knees and looks up at her she holds him close until he dies in her arms River, the black river Takes your children away River, the black river Stay away from the water that takes you away Stay away from the water that takes you away
