So Far Away
--------------------------------------
I've sung the blues
For every broken hearted lovesick dream for you
I've paid my dues
Working hard, sweat, blood, and tears for you

So far away, so far away, so far away
So far away, so far away, so far away
Ah ah ah, ah ah
Ah ah ah, ah ah

I had it all
And lost it all in one blackout summer night
I want it back
Well I just cant seem to get it right

So far away, so far away, so far away
So far away, so far away, so far away
Ah ah ah, ah ah
Ah ah ah, ah ah

I've sung the blues
For every broken hearted lovesick dream for you
I've paid my dues
Working hard, sweat, blood, and tears for you

So far away, so far away, so far away
So far away, so far away, so far away
Ah ah ah, ah ah
Ah ah ah, ah ah
Ah ah ah, ah ah
Ah ah ah, ah ah

Let It Be Me
--------------------------------------
I've been in love, but now I'm waiting
Don't ever want to worry 'bout a thing
I sit at home and I wonder
Will I rise or will I go under

Let it be me, if you're lonely
Let it be me, your one and only
Let it be me, satisfy you
Let it be me, when you're feelin' blue, feeling blue

I've seen you around, but you don't know me
I've watched your life, but can only see
I'll try and I'll try, girl to love you
And when we die, you will have loved too

Let it be me, if you're lonely
Let it be me, your one and only
Let it be me, satisfy you
Let it be me, when you're feelin' blue, feeling blue

You know your friends talk bad about me
Your folks say its not supposed to be
You know girl, your life's going by fast
Try to make it last

Let it be me, if you're lonely
Let it be me, your one and only
Let it be me, satisfy you
Let it be me, when you're feelin' blue, feeling blueback to top
Story of My Life
High school seemed like such a blur,
I didn't have much interest in sports or school elections.
And in class I dreamed all day,
Of a rock 'n' roll weekend

And the girl in the front of the room,
So close yet so far y'know she never seemed to ntice
That this silly schoolboy crush
Wasn't just pretend.

[Chorus:]
Life goes by so fast
You only want to do what you think is right.
Close your eyes and then it's past;
Story of my life

And I went down my old neighborhood
The faces have all changed there's no one left to talk to
And the pool hall I loved as a kid
Is now a Seven Eleven

I went downtown to look for a job
I had no training, no experience to speak of.
I looked at the holes in my jeans
And turned and headed back.

[Chorus]

Good times come and good times go,
I only wish the good times would last a little longer.
I think about the good times we had
And why they had to end.

So I sit at the edge of my bed
I strum my guitar and I sing an outlaw love song.
Wonerin' 'bout what you're doin' now
And when you're comin' back.

SICK BOYS BY SOCIAL DISTORTION

Sick boy, in his faded blue jeans
Sick boy, black leather jacket seams
Sick boy, he's always in trouble
With the law don't you don't know......

Sick boy, he carries a switchblade knife,
Sick boy, likes to get into fights
Sick boy, he'll go drinking
With the boys all night long.....

CHORUS:
Sick boys:: oh wheh oh
Sick boys:: na na na na na
Sick boys

Sick boy, rides a big motorbike,
Sick boy, combs his hair up just right
Sick boy, with tattoos up and
Down his arms, don't ya know.......

Sick boy, he's got a girl wrapped around his arm,
Sick boy, with his street-like charm.
Sick boy, he'll make love to her
All night long, don't you know......back to top
Ring of Fire
Love
Is a burning thing
and it makes
a fiery ring
found
my one desire
I fell into a
ring of fire

I fell into a
burning ring of fire
I went down, down, down
and the flames went higher
and it burn, burn, burns
That ring of fire
that ring of fire

The taste
of love is sweet
when hearts
like ours meet
hypophoria
like a child
all
but the fire went wild

I fell into a
burning ring of fire
I went down, down, down
and the flames went higher
and it burns, burn, burns,
That ring of fire
That ring of fire

let it burn

I fell into a
burning ring of fire
I went down, down, down
and the flames went higher
and it burns, burn, burns,
That ring of fire
That ring of fire


The taste
of love is sweet
when hearts
like ours meet
hypophoria
like a child
all
but the fire went wild

I fell into a
burning ring of fire
I went down, down, down
and the flames went higher
and it burns, burn, burns,
That ring of fire
That ring of fire

one more time

I fell into a
burning ring of fire
I went down, down, down
and the flames went higher
and it burns, burn, burns,
That ring of fire
That ring of fire

that ring of fire
that ring of fireback to top
Ball and Chain
Well it's been ten years and a thousand tears
and look at the mess im in
a broken nose and a broken heart
an empty bottle of gin\well i sit and i pray
In my broken down chevrolet
Well im singing to myself
There's got to be another way

(chorus)
Take away, take away
Take away this ball and chain
Well im lonely and im tired
And i can't take anymore pain
Take away, take away
never to return again
Take away, Take away
Take away, take away this ball and chain

Well I've searched and i've searched
to find the perfect life
a brand new car and a brand new suit
i even got me a little wife
but whereever i have gone
i was sure to find myself there
you can run all your life
but not go anywhere

(chorus)

well i passed the bar on the way
to my dingy hotel room
i spent all my money
i've been drinking since a half past noon
I'll wake there in the morning
or maybe in the county jail
Times are hard getting harder
I'm born to lose but destined to fail

(chorus)back to top
It Coulda Been Me
I got friends who are in prison,
friends who are dead
i'm gonna tell you something
that i've often said
you know these things that happen
that's just the way it's supposed to be
and i can't help but wonder
don't you know it coulda been me

i had me a good girl
her kisses sweeter than wine
and i had always hoped that
one day i'd make her mine

chorus:
but she ran off and married
that's the just the way
it's supposed to be
and i can't help but wonder
don't you know it coulda been me
well the junkie cops on first street
sticks a needle in his arm
no, he never meant to do anyone no harm

chorus:
but hes buried six feet
deep, that's the just the way
it's supposed to be
and i can't help but wonder
don't you know it coulda been me

i had me a girl her kisses
sweeter than wine. and i always
hoped that one day i'd make her mineback to top
She's a Knockout
Everywhere she goes people turn their heads
She's a knockout
Everyone wishes she was sleeping in their beds
She's a knockout
When guys see her comin' they start spending their money
She's a knockout
But don't you know I'm the only one who can call her honey
She's a knockout

CHORUS
She's a knockout, She's a knockout

She's exotic but not foreign, built like an old Cadillac
She's a knockout
Once she's left your life she ain't never comin' back
She's a knockout
With her black silk stockings and her high-heeled shoes
She's a knockout
Once she's left your life you'll surely sing the blues
She's a knockout

CHORUS

Some friends were tellin' me, just the other day
They walk right up to her, they don't know what to say
And when she calls me (hear a ring on the telephone)
I'll be there waiting for her, sitting at home all alone
All alone

In the nightclubs baby when the lights shine down
She's a knockout
When she walks down the aisle ya know her hips begin to sway
She's a knockout
come on little baby I7ll show yo the way
She's a knockout...

A Place in My Heart
Lyrics by Kelsey Wreck
If you have any questions, e-mail me at kelseywreck@gmail.com
Thank you

A PLACE IN MY HEART BY SOCIAL DISTORTION

I saw her today,
Oh God, I miss her smile
A pleasant memory
Of things in life worthwhile

CHORUS
We used to walk and we used to talk
We used to laugh and we used to cry
And there will always be a place in my heart for her

I thought of her today,
Of years together spent
A pleasant memory
Of places that we went

CHORUS
We used to walk and we used to talk
We used to laugh and we used to cry
And there will ALWAYS be a place in my heart for herback to top
Drug Train
It'll take you as high as the heavens
It'll take you to the depths of hell
It'll make you friends, it'll take your friends
Who will never live to tell

[Chorus:]
Drug train, drug train

The train's first stop is pleasure,
The scond stop is fun
But in a jail cell baby or a hospital bed
You'll need hope 'cuz you ain't got none

[Chorus]

The train passes through the graveyard
May the loved ones rest in peace
For the last stop baby is a violent crash
And hard times they never cease

[Chorus]back to top
