Buy Me

(written by Johnny Goudie, Jimmy Messer, and Kevin Hunter)

 

Half of what I’m sayin’ is the half you never hear

A word not so uncertain is a word not so unclear

Your imagination is the thing that gets you high

I am just the object of your eye

You offer your perspective from the twenty-second row

Jesus was the star but Judas stole the show

The air is getting heavy

And I think I better leave

It’s dangerous what you don’t know about me

 

So buy me

Sell me

Try me, ride me black and blue

There’s nothin’ I wouldn’t do for you

 

Tell me what I’m thinking ‘cause you look like you would know

You can’t return a ticket that you’ve stolen from the show

You and your destruction yeah started long ago

The day you fell in love with everything you didn’t know

 

Buy me

Sell me

Try me, ride me black and blue

There’s nothin’ I wouldn’t do for you

Buy me

Sell me

Try me, ride me black and blue

There’s nothin’ I wouldn’t do for you

 

Don’t tell me you know what I mean

You only see what you want to see

 

In a room full of ghosts that make me behave

I try to escape and I run like a slave

I try to scream but I’ve nothing’ to say

And if I were awake I’d dream it all away

 

Buy me

Sell me

Try me, ride me black and blue

There’s nothing I wouldn’t do for you

Buy me

Sell me

Try me, ride me black and blue

There’s nothing I wouldn’t do for you
