Oh baby, I hang on everything you say
I wanna write down every word
But do me a favor when you come through
When I look around, don't wanna see you

Soggy Bottom Boys - I Am A Man Of Constant Sorrow

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zHamgwlQ1yo

(In constant sorrow, all through his days.)

I am the man of constant sorrow
I've seen trouble all my days
I bid farewell to ol' Kentucky
The place where I was born and raised.

(The place where he was born and raised)

For six long years I've been in trouble,
no pleasure here on earth I've found
For in this world, I'm bound to ramble,
I have no friends to help me now.

(He has no friends to help him now)

It's fair thee well, my old true lover,
I neer expect to see you again.
For I'm bound to ride that Northern Railroad,
perhaps I'll die upon this train

(Perhaps he'll die upon this train)

You can bury me in some deep valley,
For many years where I may lay.
And you may learn to love another
while I am sleeping in my grave.

(While he is sleeping in his grave)

Maybe your friends think I'm just a stranger
My face youll never see no more
But there is one promise that is given,
I'll meet you on Gods golden shore

(He'll meet you on God's golden shore)

Oh, my love, my darling
I've hungered for your touch
A long, lonely time
Time goes by so slowly
And time can do so much
Are you still mine?
I need your love
I need your love
God speed your love to me
Lonely rivers flow
To the sea, to the sea
To the open arms of the sea
Lonely rivers sigh
"Wait for me, wait for me"
I'll be coming home, wait for me
Oh, my love, my darling
I've hungered, for your touch
A long, lonely time
Time goes by so slowly
And time can do so much
Are you still mine?
I need your love
I need your love
God speed your love to me

The Mad King of Hell of The Stalker

The Dead South - In Hell I'll Be In Good Company
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B9FzVhw8_bY

Dead Love couldn't go no further
Proud of and disgusted by her
Push shove, a little bruised and battered
Oh Lord I ain't coming home with you

My life's a bit more colder
Dead wife is what I told her
Brass knife sinks into my shoulder
Oh babe don't know what I'm gonna do

I see my red head, messed bed, tear shed
Queen bee, my squeeze
The stage it smells, tells, hell's bells
Miss-spells, knocks me on my knees
It didn't hurt, flirt, blood squirt
Stuffed shirt, hang me on a tree
After I count down, three rounds
In hell I'll be in good company

In Los Ageless, the winter never comes
In Los Ageless, the mothers milk their young
But I can keep running
No, I can keep running
The Los Ageless hang out by the bar
Burn the pages of unwritten memoirs
But I can keep running
No, I can keep running
How can anybody have you?
How can anybody have you and lose you?
How can anybody have you and lose you
And not lose their minds, too?
How can anybody have you?
How can anybody have you and lose you?
How can anybody have you and lose you
And not lose their minds, too?
The last days of the sunset superstars
Girls in cages playing their guitars
But how can I leave?
I just follow the hood of my car
In Los Ageless, the waves they never break
They build and build until you don't have no escape
But how can I leave?
I just follow my hood to the sea, go to sleep
How can anybody have you?
How can anybody have you and lose you?
How can anybody have you and lose you
And not lose their minds, too?
How can anybody have you?
How can anybody have you and lose you?
How can anybody have you and lose you

I'm a monster and you're my sacred cow
But I can keep running
No, I can keep on running

I Don't Want to Miss a Thing - Aerosmith

https://youtu.be/JkK8g6FMEXE

~ ~ ~

I could stay awake just to hear you breathing.
Watch you smile while you are sleeping.
While you're far away and dreaming.

I could spend my life in this sweet surrender.
I could stay lost in this moment forever.
Every moment spent with you is a moment I treasure.

Don't want to close my eyes.
I don't want to fall asleep.
'Cause I'd miss you, baby.
And I don't want to miss a thing.

'Cause even when I dream of you.
The sweetest dream will never do.
I'd still miss you, baby.
And I don't want to miss a thing.

Lying close to you, feeling your heart beating.
And I'm wondering what you're dreaming.
Wondering if it's me you're seeing.

Then I kiss your eyes.
And thank God we're together.
And I just want to stay with you in this moment forever.
Forever and ever.

I don't want to close my eyes.
I don't want to fall asleep.
'Cause I'd miss you, baby.
And I don't want to miss a thing.

'Cause even when I dream of you.
The sweetest dream will never do.
I'd still miss you, baby.
And I don't want to miss a thing.

I don't want to miss one smile.
And I don't want to miss one kiss.
And I just want to be with you.
Right here with you, just like this.

And I just want to hold you close.
Or feel your heart so close to mine.
And just stay here in this moment.
For all the rest of time.

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah!

Don't want to close my eyes.
Don't want to fall asleep.
'Cause I'd miss you, baby.
And I don't want to miss a thing.

'Cause even when I dream of you.
The sweetest dream will never do.
I'd still miss you, baby.
And I don't want to miss a thing.

I don't want to close my eyes!
I don't want to fall asleep!
'Cause I'd miss you, baby.
And I don't want to miss a thing!

'Cause even when I dream of you!
The sweetest dream will never do.
I'd still miss you, baby.
And I don't want to miss a thing.

Don't want to close my eyes!
I don't want to fall asleep, yeah.
And I don't want to miss a thing.
