Words and music by Matt Bartlett

lyrics

Easy Come, Easy Go

Spanish as the moonlight stains the sea
And the waves they rise and fall so gently
Sitting back sipping on a lonely friend
Trying real hard just to pretend
That she was not the only one for me

Well I held her off as long as I could bear
But her words would twist and tumble through the air
A thirty-eight special and a bag of blow
And they chased me down to Mexico
And now they wanna put me in the chair

Well I'd sell my soul at a modest price
But I won't be no sacrifice
You whispered words but mine were true
And I'm the man who killed a man for you

And it goes whoa whoa whoa
Easy come now easy go
Well he wound up on the wrong side of my gun
And I say hey hey hey
Yea I'm better off this way
Cus I can't get close to no one on the run

Well you know I ain't been much for killing men
But If you asked me I'd shoot him down again
Ain't nobody gonna make a fool outa me
And expect to get off peacefully
The blood is on her hands in the end

Well I'd sell my soul at a modest price
But I won't be no sacrifice
You whispered words but mine were true
And I'm the man who killed a man for you

And it goes whoa whoa whoa
Easy come now easy go
Well he wound up on the wrong side of my gun
And I say hey hey hey
Yea I'm better off this way
Cus I can't get close to no one on the run

Whoa whoa oh black magic love
It was all, all that I could afford
I didn't mean to make nobody dead
Just shoot a motherfucker in the head
His dying was between him and the Lord

Well I'd sell my soul at a modest price
But I won't be no sacrifice
You whispered words but mine were true
And I'm the man who killed a man for you

And it goes whoa whoa whoa
Easy come now easy go
Well he wound up on the wrong side of my gun
And I say hey hey hey
Yea I'm better off this way
Cus I can't get close to no one on the run
