Daniel Merriweather Chainsaw

Everyone loves you but they don’t love you like I do

And everyone knows you but they ain’t seen this side of you

I’m over the measure, one shot turns into four

And I end up injured as love turns into war

Oh, oh, oh, oh

Oh, oh, oh, oh

When I get over you and get the dirt off my shoulder

Will I look like a fool or just a whole lot older?

Givin’ myself to you is like givin’ myself to a chainsaw

You keep cuttin’ me open

Why is it the only thing that you’re good for?

Givin’ myself to you is like givin’ myself to a chainsaw

You keep cuttin’ me open

Why is it the only thing that you’re good for?

I can’t remember how we started this thing

But I know I was better before you pulled the string

Somethin’ to mention before you kill me

So I won’t be the last one, the last one that’s for sure

And oh, oh, oh, oh

The last one, oh, oh no

When I get over you and get the dirt off my shoulder

Will I look like a fool or just a whole lot older?

Givin’ myself to you is like givin’ myself to a chainsaw

You keep cuttin’ me open

Why is it the only thing that you’re good for?

Givin’ myself to you is like givin’ myself to a chainsaw

You keep cuttin’ me open

Why is it the only thing that you’re good for?

What you gonna do when you’ve had enough?

What you gonna say when it’s all to late?

What you gonna do when you fall in love?

How you gonna feel when it hurts the same?

What you gonna do when you’ve had enough?

What you gonna say when it’s all to late?

Staring at the things that you broke apart

And you know you can’t put ’em back again

Givin’ myself to you is like givin’ myself to a chainsaw

You keep cuttin’ me open

Why is it the only thing that you’re good for?

Givin’ myself to you is like givin’ myself to a chainsaw

You keep cuttin’ me open

Why is it the only thing that you’re good for?

Givin’ myself to you is like I’m givin’ myself to a chainsaw

Givin’ myself to you is like I’m givin’ myself to a chainsaw

Givin’ myself to you is like I’m givin’ myself to a chainsaw

Givin’ myself to you is like I’m givin’ myself to a chainsaw

Givin’ myself to you is like I’m givin’ myself to a chainsaw

Givin’ myself to you is like I’m givin’ myself to a chainsaw

Givin’ myself to you is like I’m givin’ myself to a chainsaw

Givin’ myself to you is like I’m givin’ myself to a chainsaw

Givin’ myself to you

Daniel Merriweather Getting Out

Yesterday I made you cry

It didn’t even phase me when your tears rolled down

I was so convinced that I was right

That you never even tried to bring me ’round

And these rules are gettin’ tangled in my body

These rules, it’s gonna hurt when you pull them out

Look at what you made do

I was only tryin’ to save the world that I forgot about askin’ you

But look at what you made me say

I’m usin’ crosswords on the radio tellin’ you to change your ways

Look at what I’ve become

Thought I was everythin’ you dreamed of

But you were dreamin’ of gettin’ out

And now I can’t get my ass off the couch

Nicotine and alcohol

Anythin’ to fill the hole ’cause it’s all too much

There’s nothin’ I can talk about

Of course I’m gonna shut you out

I can hardly blame you ’cause you got me stuck, yeah

But these rules are gettin’ tangled in my body

These rules, it’s gonna hurt when you pull them out

Look at what you made do

I was just about to save the world that I forgot about askin’ you

But look at what you made me say

I’m usin’ crosswords on the radio tellin’ you to change your ways

And look at what I’ve become

Thought I was everythin’ you dreamed of

But you were dreamin’ of gettin’ out

And now I can’t get my ass off the couch because of you

I made you fly away, made you leave today but you never know

How these rules got tangled in our bodies

These rules, it’s gonna hurt when you pull them out

But look at what you made do

I was just about to save the world that I forgot about askin’ you

But look at what you made me say

I’m usin’ crosswords on the radio tellin’ you to change your ways

And look at what I’ve become

Thought I was everythin’ you dreamed of

But you were dreamin’ of gettin’ out

And now I can’t get my ass off the couch because of you

Daniel Merriweather Water And A Flame

[Daniel]

Seven days has gone so fast

I really thought the pain would pass

Its been nearly an hour since I thought of you

cause you’re not answering the phone

I’d settle for a busy tone

at least by that I know, that you’re okay

A girl like you ain’t meant to go away

[Chorus]

And now you’re gone, there’s nothing else I want

And now that its over, there’s nothing else I want

What have I done, looks I was wrong

Is everything really meant to change?

I guess were like water and a flame

[Adele]

I’m tired of this empty house

I need a drink to get me out

a couple more till I forget your name

I saw a boy that looked like you

I didn’t quite know what to do

I took a power of will to break my stare

I realized what I wanted wasn’t there

[Chorus]

And now you’re gone, there’s nothing else I want

And now that its over, there’s nothing else I want

What have I done, looks like I was wrong

Is everything really meant to change?

I guess were like water and a flame

[Middle 8]

[Daniel:] If you see me coming

[Adele:] I look away, I look away

[Daniel:] And if your minds made up

[Adele:] I look away, I will look away

[Daniel:] If you worry about..

[Adele:] I’m ok, I’m ok, yes I am

[Daniel:] All this sorrow and this pain is gonna go away

[Chorus]

And now you’re gone, there’s nothing else I want

And now that its over, there’s nothing else I want

What have I done, looks I was wrong

Is everything really meant to change?

I guess were like water and a flame

Water and a flame

Daniel Merriweather Not Giving Up

Went through three winters, three summers

Thinking that you’re gonna return

My friends said it over and over

“Gotta stop holding on to her”

I went through fire and rain

Every moment I thought you called

There was nothing to gain

How did I get the blame for it all

Feels like I could never let you go

‘Cause it just intensifies the pain

I wish there was a way to let you know

That being without you is not the same

So I’m not giving up on love

You know our history

Girl, we were meant to be

Why should I give you up, my love

It was you and me

Now I’m left with nothing

Do you remember the flowers I sent

They don’t grow in September, you know

You said you didn’t feel love

You know better girl, but that was the story you told

You said that you tried and you tried

You kept telling that lie to yourself

What you feel you can’t hide

You won’t find it in nobody else

Feels like I could never let you go

‘Cause it just intensifies my pain

I wish there was a way to let you know

Being without you is not the same

So I’m not giving up on love

You know our history

Girl, we were meant to be

Why should I give you up, my love

It was you and me

Now I’m left with nothing

So I’m not giving up on love

You know our history

Girl, we were meant to be

Why should I give you up, my love

It was you and me

Now I’m left with nothing

Giving up on love

You know our history

Girl, we were meant to be

Why should I give you up, my love

It was you and me

Now I’m left with nothing

(Giving up, up, up, up, up, up, up

Giving up, up, up, up, up, up, up

Giving up, up, up, up, up, up, up

Giving up, up, up, up, up, up, up)

Daniel Merriweather All Of The People

[Chorus]

All of the people, look at the children

Play in the morning sun

All of the people, look at their children

Wishing that they were one

[Verse 1]

Heavenly father, why are they fighting

Why do they fight over you

They all act like sinners, but they pray over dinner

Thankin the lord for their food

[Pre-Chorus]

(La la la la la la la la la) if we don’t fight any longer

(La la la la la la la la la) you know that we could be stronger

(La la la la la la la la la) and we could be so much better

(La la la la la la la la la) if we just stick together

[Chorus]

All of the people, look at the children

Play in the morning sun

All of the people, look at their children

Wishing that they were one

[Verse 2]

Heavenly father, why is she crying

Did they take her only son

White picket fences, is all that defense is

Ain’t that that how the west was won

[Pre-Chorus]

[Chorus]

[Interlude]

Heavenly father, we’ll get our karma

Look at just we’ve become

Invading and cheaters, we talk about freedom

And that’s how the west was won

(La la la la la la la la la) if we don’t fight any longer

…..and there’s more

Daniel Merriweather Live By Night

You live by night

And waste the day

You give yourself

You give yourself away

I know that when you started

You liked the way you felt

And yes I understand you

But to everybody else…

It’s black and white

To you it’s grey

You know I’ll love you anyway

But it seems to me you’re living on the run

But I hope you know you’re not the only one

Who lives by night

Lives by night

They’re only trying to chase away the sun

And when you play

The way you do

The sun don’t shine

The same way for you

And you say you don’t abuse it

But baby I can tell

We both know what the truth is

But to everybody else…

It’s black and white

It’s night and day

You know I’ll love you anyway

But it seems to me you’re living on the run

And now you know you’re not the only one…

Who lives by night

Lives by night

We’re only trying to chase away the sun

We, we were so intimate

You, you were so into it

But they, they pulled you in

And now that they’re gone

We’re only trying to work out what went wrong

You live by night

Live by night

But you’re only trying to chase away the sun

Daniel Merriweather Change

I saw a dried up river and a rich man

Turning on a garden hose

I see a young man picking up a gun

I guess that’s where the money goes, yeah

Am I just as good as a bad man

Sleeping while the rest are dying?

Or am I just as bad as a good man

Saying there’s no use of trying?

Ooh, tell me do you still believe

Ooh, everything that you read?

Till we learn to get together

And see who we really are

Ain’t nothing gonna change

Ain’t nothing gonna change

If nobody’s gonna wake up

And start asking who’s in charge

Ain’t nothing gonna change

Ain’t nothing gonna change

Ain’t nothing gonna change

Ain’t shit changing but diapers on babies

Get higher than the background singers singing, singing

Okay singing

Some people do it all for money

And some do it all for their love, yeah

Some do it all for the glory

‘Cause nothing else they’re thinking of

I saw a man in a four door truck

Complaining that the price is high

Like a well feed man with a spoon in his hand

Saying who ate all the apple pie, yeah

Ooh, tell me do you still believe

Ooh, everything that you read?

Till we learn to get together

And see who we really are

Ain’t nothing gonna change

Ain’t nothing gonna change

If nobody’s gonna wake up

And start asking who’s in charge

Ain’t nothing gonna change

Ain’t nothing gonna change

Ain’t nothing gonna change

If I ain’t ready to listen I’m never gonna listen

Most follow intuition while they wishing it would work

And my vision isn’t perfect so I will never learn for it

Don’t wish for some change like a church worker

Hallelujah, preacher I am not influenced

If I don’t donate to your movement am I not improving?

And while the poor kill the poor for a portion

A piece of American society pie

I get high, the munchies I got so bear witness

I got this girl looking at you ’cause my reps kissing

And I ain’t ready to wait when there’s dollars on the brain

Why would you expect change?

Till we learn to get together

And see who we really are

Ain’t nothing gonna change

Ain’t nothing gonna change

If nobody’s gonna wake up

And start asking who’s in charge

Ain’t nothing gonna change

Ain’t nothing gonna change

Ain’t nothing gonna change, no, no

Ain’t shit changing but diapers on babies

Get higher than the background singers singing, singing

Daniel Merriweather Cigarettes

I wasn’t gonna drink tonight

Then I went to a bar

I wasn’t gonna start that fight

But they pushed me way too far

And ooh, ooh

But you would never know

Ooh, ooh

But you would never know

I wasn’t gonna watch the game

Now I’m shoutin’ at the ball

I checked my phone and saw your name

So I must’ve missed your call

I wasn’t gonna place that bet

But they said he’d take the fall

Now my clothes smell like cigarettes

But I don’t smoke at all

Oh, ohh

But you would never know

Ooh, ohh

But you would never know

Ooh and I was out havin’ fun

I was out of line

When I thought I was stayin’ young

I was stayin’ out in my mind

Life is like an old cassette

That you can’t rewind

Now my clothes smell like cigarettes

And it happens all the time

Ohh

But you would never know

Ooh, ohh

But you would never know

Love and sex and TV sets

We never left my room

I used to speak and old regrets

Maybe I spoke too soon

I thought that I did my best

Now I know that isn’t true

‘Cause my clothes smell like cigarettes

And they used to smell like you

Used to smell like you

Used to smell like you, ooh yeah

Used to smell like you

Used to smell like you

Used to smell like you

I thought I did my best

Now I know that isn’t true, yeah

‘Cause my clothes smell like cigarettes

When they used to smell like you

Daniel Merriweather Giving Away Everything For Free

I’m gonna build a raft and set it on the water there

Hoping she will come, see the thing I made

What a thing I made

Today I’m gonna sail even if she doesn’t show

The ocean can decide, love is like a wave

Love would never fail

Hope she gets here soon

I hope she isn’t far away

But if she is, I’ll sail anyway

Everyday that I love her I kill myself

It happens over and over, there’s no one else

And I try to forget her but look at me

Giving everything away for free

And when I’m out at sea, I’m gonna write a song for her

I’ll sing across the bay, hoping she will hear

Hoping she will hear

I think she’s in her car and just above the motorway

To hear my serenade beckoning her near

beckoning her near

And then she’s gonna swim

I didn’t build my raft in vain

But if I did, we’ll both drown anyway

‘Cause everyday that I love her I kill myself

It happens over and over, there’s no one else

And I try to forget her but look at me

Giving everything away for free

Giving everything away for free, free

Drown me, it’ll stop the pain, if my love’s in vain

‘Cause I knew, I knew she’d never come

‘Cause she couldn’t bear the ocean

She couldn’t stand the waves

So everyday that I love her I kill myself

It happens over and over, there’s no one else

And I try to forget her but look at me

Giving everything away for free
