Verse 1:
Knowing youíre gonna close your eyes for the last time
Knowing youíre not gonna be by my side
Knowing that itís going to be over
And I never thought it would end

Chorus:
And so Iíll be so alone now
Why must you go
And itíll be all down hill from here now
Why must you go

No longer a team no happy ever after
But each time I lay my head down at night itís like
Itís like you never left my side

Why did you go
And itís all down hill from here now
Why did you go

Why did you go

Bradley's Ground

You just feel ashamed that Iíve had you fooled that way
Your drama comes around too frequently
And you canít criticize someone that you want to be

Chorus:
And ya wanna give up
And ya wanna be down
And ya wanna stay fit
Here on Bradleyís ground
And ya gotta stay tough
And ya gotta be proud

And ya wanna stay fit
Here on Bradleyís ground
And ya gotta stay tough
And ya gotta be proud
And ya gotta stay fit
To survive on Bradleyís ground

Why donít you just save us both the face
Donít you know exactly how I got my bad streak
Why donít you bow down and kiss my feet
Before I put you in your place

And ya wanna give up
And ya wanna be down
And ya wanna stay fit
Here on Bradleyís ground

And ya wanna be down
And ya wanna stay fit
Here on Bradleyís ground

To survive on Bradleyís ground

Down Baby
Verse 1:
I feel like Iím haunted by every single passing day
I feel like Iím alone on my lifeís journey all the way
Iím hoping that by making music Iíve found a way to relate
Iím hoping that one day I get a following that loves me

Chorus:
Cause Iím
Down baby down baby Iím liviní in
Down baby down baby thatís what it is
Down baby down baby wish I could change it
Down baby down baby but thatís not gon-happen
Down baby down baby Iím liviní in
Down baby down baby thatís what it is
Down baby down baby wish I could change it
Down baby down baby thatís not gon-happen

Verse 2:
I donít think Iíve ever gotten a fair chance to do what I want
I think that I blame it on me having been so damn hot
Later in life my insecurities kicked in and I became shot
So itís all a mater of choices and in the end what youíve got

Chorus:
Cause Iím
Down baby down baby Iím liviní in
Down baby down baby thatís what it is
Down baby down baby wish I could change it
Down baby down baby but thatís not gon-happen
Down baby down baby Iím liviní in
Down baby down baby thatís what it is
Down baby down baby wish I could change it
Down baby down baby thatís not gon-happen

Bridge:
Oh Bradley whoís got your back
Oh Bradleyís who is your friend
Oh Bradleyís who is there for you
Oh for you

Chorus:

I'm Scared of This Verse
Verse 1:
Here it is sis itís January first
bout an hour and a half or so since I first heard
You canít imagine what I felt when I first heard those words
I was like ďIs it really bad? Is she really that hurt?Ē
It sounded like a drunkiní joke when Sallee called me at first
Like she was telliní me that you had another shot of liquor

Chorus:
When you called me I should have made you come up earlier
Then this wouldnít have happened man Iím such a jerk
Itís so fucked up how society works
Iím scared to keep writing Iím scared of this verse

Verse 2:
dunno if the phone will ring and bring me more hurt
That the rest of this song would be carried in your hurst
I hope to god surgery fixes you up first
And I hope our mothers throwing you comforting words
And I hope our dad has a bag to cool where it burns
Iíd just like to add these last few fucking words

Chorus:
When you called me I should have made you come up earlier
Then this wouldnít have happened man Iím such a jerk
Itís so fucked up how society works
Iím scared to keep writing Iím scared of this verse

It Is My Dream
Verse 1:
Iím not lookin for some kinda guy who canít love me for me
Or the kinda guy Iím scared to be around and to be who I wanna be
Not everyone has had a passion so deep like me every single day in their life
& not all guys want to get a career solely for the money and luxury
And Iím not looking to be in the shadows for the rest of eternity
I need a guy who loosens the dog leash one without any insecurities

Hook:
Cause Iíve got Iíve got this dream
And it sucks you donít share it with me
But I wont, I will never leave
This place that holds most of me

Chorus:
Itís my dream
It is my dream
It is my dream
It is my dream

Verse 2:
I guess I should backtrack to a few years ago, when my songs were only heard by my friends
And whore my self around to all of the bars and get my music heard or flat out rejected
Not everyone in their life wants to stay in one place, I think itís called evolution
And personally I think Iíve come such a long way too far to be held back from my passion

Hook:
Cause Iíve got Iíve got this dream
And it sucks you donít share it with me
But I wont, I will never leave
This place that holds most of me

Chorus:
Itís my dream
It is my dream
It is my dream
It is my dream

I've Got a Man
Verse 1:
Filthy minds thatís what youíve got
Checkiní out my hot pictures like you wanna feel my throb
Get your mind out the gutters yeah unless you can back your shit up

Chorus 1:
Mmm but I got a man and Iím not lookin for another dude
And I gotta man so Iím not lookin for a date with you
Cause I gotta man and Iím not lookin for an attitude
Cause I gotta man and weíre not lookin for a 3sum screw

Verse 2:
Rub yourselves up and down yeah
Oh do what you want to yourselves
But I got a man who knows where to touch me
I donít need any Twinkies
I got a man who knows where to rub me

Chorus 2:
Cause I got a man who knows exactly where to press & touch
Cause I got a man who knows precisely where to rub & love
Cause I got a man and he knows how I like to be fucked
Cause I got a man and he knows how I like my dick sucked

Malin Berggren
Verse 1:
Thereís a house inside my heart full of vacancy
Thereís a site within a part that everyone can see
Cause youíre too far and you donít see I was out of energy
All cause you left and hid away behind blurred imagery

Hook:
Youíre forgiven for abandoning
All the folks who made you so wealthy
And with as sad as I now am
I will grow to be a bigger man

Chorus:
Fix me you brought me up
Iím your obligation
Iím stupid because I saw the signs
Your Strange ways were to leave me behind
Fix me you brought me up
Iím your obligation
Iím stupid because I saw the signs
Your Strange ways were to leave me behind

Verse 2:
And thereís just no hiding the words written all over me
It is for sure Iíll wont forget the way you had to leave
As if you didnít hear our ďstay with meĒ begging pleas
12 years is just as bad as an eternity

Hook:
Youíre forgiven for abandoning
All the folks who made you so wealthy
And with as sad as I now am
I will grow to be a bigger man

Chorus:
Fix me you brought me up
Iím your obligation
Iím stupid because I saw the signs
Your Strange ways were to leave me behind
Fix me you brought me up
Iím your obligation
Iím stupid because I saw the signs
Your Strange ways were to leave me behind

Misplaced Lyrics
Iíve started so many things that have failed to take off
Itís like Iíve given up or that I donít have too long
Too many ideas and not enough time
Fear of the end compared to what is behind
All that once was Iím losing more and more
And I know that itís because I ignore it once more
20 once mores times 20 a day
equals the mess that I am today
Canít I say that I have the will to change
Sendiní myself on a vacation so sweet
I feel like he talks like that fast cause heís scared of all his insecurities
I think that I feel like him and that I share the same philosophy
I declare to you boy right here and right now that Iíll share every single part of me
Iíll spit it out
And youíll find a way to pick it out
You should know if it doesnít work that Iím fine
You should know that I gave all the love, that you cannot deny
If you think that you can do better, then whatever, so long, goodbye
Just make a note of this in retrospect baby so that I can too!
Cause youíre a dreaming if you think Iím not fair
With your pretend weeping youíve got no time to fucking care
I donít want a love like this
I donít want a life like this
I wanna live stressless
I wanna live guiltless
Wanna feel special
Not like Iím mental
Baby will you shadow this
Or stand next to this
Or will you neglect this
Cause Iím feeling restless
Bradleyís getting tired
Bradleyís startiní to fall asleep
Itís getting hard to explain life lyrically
Itís gonna take a tragedy
To snap me the fuck out of repeat
certified under mental is how one defines me
Itíd take a hell of a lot more than a simple mistake to rearrange my fate
Iím slowing down on the output
As I figure out the input
Iím in need of rewiring
Too bad nothings ever concrete
unembedded membrane
Unglamorous and lame
Iíve sighed out unrelieved
How to begin a song now-a-days
When I feel so wrong and latent
Am I still lost in inability to associate
On my wrongfulness that Iíll now marinate
In a swamp of blame whether by them or by me
Lost I am so lost that I can no longer see
Whatís been happening to me
The life I love to live is haunting me
And Iím so unhealthy
And the flowers all around me
Are already past the point of withering
Loose peddles waiting to fall off
Branches already broken
I must brush them off
I must brush them off
Intergalactic networking on the electronic tube
I have lost my will to live and my life is my proof
My children are starving while daddyís aloof
I can only pray that this one day is through
But at the same time this is all only half truth
So once again Iím forced to ask each of you
How do I write a song when itís all over so soon

Right Here in This Day
Verse 1:
Itís like a bright shiny new day
Itís all done in a new type of way
Things can be grand that were once shame
Things that are accepted drive primer people insane
Ones that are outcasts have somehow been placed
And ones that were uncool are no longer defaced
Ones that were once called cowards are now considered brave

Chorus:
Right here in this day

Verse 2:
Itís like a brighter night or a more homely way
And with no more thoughts of what snooty people say
Itís without a doubt not another phase
The world is out headed on a straightaway
Evolution has crowned a brand-new name
If you do good by someone theyíll do you the same

Chorus:
Right here in this day

Swallow the Load
Verse 1:
I donít know why Ace Of Base they lost Lynn
New Kids On The Block are back to make more hits
And Madonnaís still kickiní she donít take the hint
And Robyn is back to the fuckiní US
Alanis still talkin donít know what she says
But all of these people I love them to death
Theyíve gotten me through so much strife
and there in my bliss I feel young again

Hook 1:
Iíve got to swallow the load the world dumps on me
And theyíre the ones whoíre always helping

Chorus:
Swallow The Load
That the world dumps on me
Though Iím on my knees
That he dumps on me
Though Iím unequipped and everything
And remind myself to keep going on
Swallow the load
The world dumps on my
though Iím on my knees

Verse 2:
If when he comes again Iíll have to handle shit
Iíve got to grit my teeth and swing right by it
And smile and nod to this itís all the love within
Itís why I deal with him Itís how Iíve been buildin
Iíve come this far with heat and yet Iíve shared no bliss
Iíve gotta read the lit so I can get this bitch

Hook 2:
Iíve got to swallow the load that he dumps on me
Swallow it down and keep going

Chorus:
Swallow The Load
That the world dumps on me
Though Iím on my knees
That he dumps on me
Though Iím unequipped and everything
And remind myself to keep going on
Swallow the load
The world dumps on my
though Iím on my knees

The Evil One
Verse 1:
You counteracted all my beneficial moments
I began to feel I needed ways around all of it
I almost fell as though my car had been stolen
Iíd then suffer walking throughout existence

Hook:
Risen high sorrow with bubbling rage
Gripping clenches caused crippling pain
Carnage were the disciples who melted off stage
In the presence of a peasant who the evil one slain

Chorus:
Somethinsí wrong with everything you do
I just wanna get out I just wanna get out

Verse 2:
You counteracted all my beneficial moments past
Because of some long ago precedence
I almost fell as though my car had been stolen
Iíd then suffer walking throughout existence

Hook:
Risen high sorrow with bubbling rage
Gripping clenches caused crippling pain
Carnage were the disciples who melted off stage
In the presence of a peasant who the evil one slain

Chorus:
Somethinsí wrong with everything you do
I just wanna get out I just wanna get out

They Done Told Another Lie
Verse 1:
Well Iíve got a thing or 2 to say and I feel pressured in every single way
hope you donít mind and hope youíve got time to guide me Iím blind

Well I got a big ego ya see and I donít take good to faggots pestering me

Chorus:
Iím sittin
Iím waitin
you keep judging
you fake and
you aint steppin
Iím done shruggin
Iím debatin

Beatin your fuckin face in

To Suit Themselves
Verse: 1
I've been called too soft I've been called too hard
I've been called too thin I've been called too smart
I've been called a tease, I've been called a prude
even called a pushover, yet some say I'm rude
some say I'm uncaring, some think I'm the sweetest thing
and some people who know me, laugh about that in my face
some say I am dumb as can be, or try to figure out whatís hidden in Bradley

Hook:
I've always been right, but Iíve always been called wrong
and I'm not just saying that because I'm too self-involved
and I know it's clichť, in this song all I say
just hear me out while I try to explain

Chorus:
people try to change me to suit themselves
never letting me be any part of myself
without a hassle of some sort, a fight or a leave
tension builds up all around me

Hook:
I've always been right, but Iíve always been called wrong
and I'm not just saying that because I'm too self-involved
and I know it's clichť, in this song all I say
just hear me out while I try to explain

Chorus:
people try to change me to suit themselves
never letting me be any part of myself
without a hassle of some sort, a fight or a leave
tension builds up all around me

Verse 2:
People've told me Iíve no musical ability
And told me I have no talent and that I can't sing
People've laughed at the huge knocker on my face
Theyíve equated my 2 nostrils with flaring flames

People've laughed after seeing no shirt on me
Iíve heard them call me whore too accusations are uncaring
I've had some say I act like a man
whereas others say I act like their girl friends

Hook:
I've always been right, but Iíve always been called wrong
and I'm not just saying that because I'm too self-involved
and I know it's clichť, in this song all I say
just hear me out while I try to explain

Chorus:
people try to change me to suit themselves
never letting me be any part of myself
without a hassle of some sort, a fight or a leave
tension builds up all around me

Hook:
I've always been right, but Iíve always been called wrong

Chorus:
people try to change me to suit themselves
