Jekyll + Hyde Lyrics
(Lyrics to the Full Album on one page)

Beautiful Drug

I got a death wish
Her looks can kill
She's got a red dress
Lipstick and heels
Pull me in, get me hooked like a junkie
You got me feeling so high

You're such a beautiful drug
I can't get enough
Addicted and I'm dying for a hit of your love
Got a death wish baby, baby
Don't want you to save me, save me

She lets her hair down
And all of mine stand up
Can't help but stare now
Gotta feel that touch
Her kiss, my fix, so sweet
Can't quit those lips are a habit to me
Sweet intoxication and I'm never getting sober
I can tell that the effects are taking over
Pull me in, get me hooked like a junkie
You got me feeling so high

You're such a beautiful drug
I can't get enough
Addicted and I'm dying for a hit of your love
Got a death wish baby, baby
Don't want you to save me, save me
Tonight
Whoa, whoa, whoa
Whoa, whoa, whoa

You're such a beautiful drug
I can't get enough
I'm addicted and dying for a hit of your love
I'm losing it, baby
Keep driving me crazy, crazy

Going out of my mind
Staring at you
Burning up in your fire that I've fallen into
Got a death wish baby, baby
Don't want you to save me, save me
Tonight

Whoa, whoa, whoa
Whoa, whoa, whoa
Whoa, whoa, whoa
Whoa, whoa, whoa

Loving You Easy

Every morning when you come downstairs
Hair's a mess but I don't care,
No Makeup on you're shining so bright
My old sweatshirt never fit so right

Dancing around to the radio
Humming the words that you don't know
Cross out finding an angel off my list,
thinking it don't get no better than this

You making loving you easy
You make loving you all I wanna do
Every little smile, every single touch
Reminds me just how much it all makes
Loving you easy

Wrapped around me late at night
Pillow talk by candle light
Gonna slow this down and make it last
The best things fly by so fast

You making loving you easy
You make loving you all I wanna do
Every little smile, every single touch
Reminds me just how much it all makes
Loving you easy

Oh, I wanna sing it again...

You making loving you easy
You make loving you all I wanna do
Every little smile, every single touch
Reminds me just how much it all makes
Loving you easy

Easy
Easy

Remedy

I've been looking for a sound
That makes my heart sing
Been looking for a melody
That makes the church bells ring
Not looking for the fame
Or the fortune it might bring
In love, in music, in life

Jesus preached the golden rule
Buddha taught it too
Gandhi said eye for an eye
Makes the whole world go blind
With a little understanding
We can break these chains that we've been handed
I've got the medication
Love is the remedy

Pray to be stronger and wiser
Know you get what you give
Love one another
Amen (amen), amen

I've been thinking about the mark
That I'll be leaving
Been looking for a truth
I can believe in
I got everything I need
Let this heart be my guide
In love, in music, in life

I'm not saying I'm a wise man
Heaven knows there's much that I'm still finding
Making my way down this winding road
Holding on to what I love
Yeah, and leaving the rest behind
For love, for music, for life

Pray to be stronger and wiser
Know you get what you give
Love one another

(Love is the remedy)
We're all in this world together
Life's a gift that we have to treasure
Happiness, now that is the measure
Love is the remedy
(Love is the remedy)

Everyone can be forgiven
One love and one religion
Open up your heart and listen
Love is the remedy

Pray to be stronger and wiser
And know you get what you give
God is love one another
Amen (amen), amen, amen (amen)

Homegrown

I got a piece of land, out in the countryside
Lay back and smell the sun
Warm up the Georgia pie
Feels so good to be taking it easy
Why would I ever leave
'Cause I know

I got some good friends, that live down the street
Got a good lookin' woman with her arms 'round me
Live in a small town where it feels like home
I got everything I need and nothing that I don't
Homegrown, Homegrown

We got a fire goin, down by the riverside
Sip whiskey out the bottle
Livin' like we'll never die
Come on stay a while if you don't believe me
Why would I ever leave
'Cause I know

I got some good friends, that live down the street
Got a good lookin' woman with her arms 'round me
Live in a small town where it feels like home
I got everything I need and nothing that I don't
Homegrown, Homegrown
Homegrown, Homegrown

I got some good friends that live down the street
Got a good looking woman with her arms 'round me
Here in a small town where it feels like home
I've got everything I need
(Homegrown)
And nothing that I don't
(Homegrown)
Everything I need
(Homegrown)
And nothing that I don't
(Homegrown)

It's the way that you care if all the things you think you want [x3]
I got everything I need, nothing that I don't (homegrown)
Everything I need, nothing that I don't (homegrown)
Everything I need, nothing that I don't (homegrown)
Oh, everything I need, and nothing that I don't (homegrown)

Mango Tree

Waiting for the sunlight
To come rising from the sea
We lay undercover
Shaded by the mango tree
We could stay forever
Never leave this paradise
Swaying in the ocean breeze
To the rhythm of the tide

Tomorrow, oh tomorrow
Take your time, 'cause we got
Time to borrow

I love you
Say that you love me too
And we can turn
The whole world upside down
Just us two
Nobody else will do
'Cause baby, you're
The only one for me
Underneath the mango tree

Drifting like the ocean
Daydreams dancing in the wind
Sand is sticking to our bodies
Just like sugar on our skin
The day is getting older
Oh, but we are still so young
Higher than the stars above
And faded like the sun

Tomorrow, oh tomorrow
Take your time, 'cause we got
Time to borrow

I love you
Say that you love me too
And we can turn
The whole world upside down
Just us two
Nobody else will do
(It's me and you)
'Cause baby, you're
The only one for me
(Oh, you're so sweet)
Underneath the mango tree

I love you
(I know you do)
Say that you love me too
(I love you too)
We can turn
The whole world upside down
Ah, just us two
(It's me and you)
Nobody else will do
Baby, you're
You're the only one for me
(Baby, you're the only one for me)
Baby, you're the only one for me
(Baby, you're the only one for me)
Underneath the mango tree

Heavy Is The Head

(with Chris Cornell)

[Chris Cornell:]
Heavy is the head that wears the crown
Heavy is the head that wears the crown

[Zac Brown:]
Black dog
Drinks from the water
Trying to cool his tongue
Like the king
Finds no peace
His work is never done
Night falls
Smoke on the water
Darkness closes in
Cold white hand, in the deep
Will drown you for your sin

[Zac Brown:]
It's a life long expedition
Second guessing your decisions
Trying to find out what's been missing
They just keep on fitting

[Zac Brown:]
Crying out
Go and wake the king
Call to arms
For those who kiss the ring
Stand your ground
The walls are coming down
It's do or die
Do or die

[Chris Cornell:]
Heavy is the head that wears the crown
Heavy is the head that wears the crown

[Zac Brown:]
Mad man
Blood on the alter
The Queen will have his head
His ghost will shake those rattling chains
Long after he's dead
No soul, knows he is trouble
High upon his throne
Loved by few and judged by many
He bares that weight alone

[Chris Cornell:]
It's a life long expedition
Second guessing your decisions
Trying to find out what's been missing
They just keep on fitting

[Chris Cornell:]
Crying out
Go and wake the king
Call to arms
For those who kiss the ring
Stand your ground
The walls are coming down
It's do or die
Do or die

[Chris Cornell:]
Heavy is the head that wears the crown
Heavy is the head that wears the crown

Bittersweet

Can't tell where the sky begins
And the water ends
No clouds to hide the sun
Waves playing me
A symphony upon the sand
As I lay drifting on the ocean
With this bottle in my hand

Sat down on the boardwalk
For a little while
Your memory, my company
Something 'bout this place
Had a way to make you smile
You always loved this island breeze

The wind whistling 'cross my bottle
Still can't blow away the sorrow
That tomorrow you won't be here with me
So I raise it up and toast
The day we met and won't forget
The way you love me
The amazing way you love me

It's bittersweet, you see
You're not here but I can feel you
Every memory is on the tip of my tongue
Close my eyes, see your face
Hold on tight to yesterday
Praying when I wake, it was just a dream
It's bittersweet

Doctor said there's nothing we can do
Took my hand, said take me home
To the only place with half a chance
To take the pain away
Make me feel alive before I go

You said life is only borrowed
So let's wash away our sorrow
That tomorrow I won't be here with you
Go and live your life with no regrets
And don't forget how much I love you
I love you

It's bittersweet, you see
You're not here but I can feel you
Every memory is on the tip of my tongue
Close my eyes, see your face
Hold on tight to yesterday
Praying when I wake, it was just a dream
It's bittersweet

I brought you back just like you wanted
So you don't ever have to leave
When I poured you 'cross the southern sky
I couldn't help but to cry
I know you finally got your wings

Bitter, bittersweet
Bittersweet, oh

The wind whistling 'cross my bottle
Still can't blow away the sorrow
That tomorrow you won't be here with me
So raise it up and toast the day we met
I won't forget the way you love me
The amazing way you love me
It's bittersweet

Castaway

Pour me another one
Make it a strong one
We're gonna have some fun tonight

I wanna be a castaway
And leave the world behind
Take a tropic holiday
Say goodbye to keeping time
Wasting away down by the coast
Pacifico and chasing lime
Easy living down in paradise

Pour me another one
Make it a strong one
We're gonna have some fun tonight
Just like the other one
Make it a double rum
We're gonna castaway tonight

I'm in an island state of mind
Don't think I'm ever gonna leave
I'd rather stay and watch the waves
Move the sand beneath my feet
Reggae on the radio
Laying low and feeling high
Easy living down in paradise

Pour me another one
Make it a strong one
We're gonna have some fun tonight
Just like the other one
Make it a double rum
We're gonna castaway tonight
Castaway

Ride the waves like we're young
'Cause time flies by and soon we'll be older
It's better to live in the moment
Than stuck in the past
Fast asleep as the world passes by

Ay ay yo
Where reality is history
Oh yo eh
Come and castaway with me
Ay ay yo
The good times are free and
Nobody can take that away
Oh yo eh
Come and castaway with me

Pour me another one
(Smiling in the islands, I've been)
Make it a strong one
We're gonna have some fun tonight
(For a little while I'll be a castaway
Gonna let the sun shine in)
Just like the other one
(Smiling in the islands, I've been)
Make it a double rum
We're gonna castaway tonight
(For a little while I'll be a castaway
Gonna let the sunshine in)

Pour me another one
(Smiling in the islands, I've been)
Make it a strong one
We're gonna have some fun tonight
(For a little while I'll be a castaway
Gonna let the sun shine in)
Just like the other one
(Smiling in the islands, I've been)
Make it a double rum
We're gonna castaway tonight
(For a little while I'll be a castaway)
Castaway

Tomorrow Never Comes

I've been climbing my way through the sky
Searching for answers that I'll never find
Losing my breath as I fall
Learning to fly, letting go of it all
Learning to fly, letting go of it all

I've been trying to open my eyes
Take it all in as the world passes by
Getting lost in the twists and the turns
Finding these questions inside me still burn
Finding these questions inside me still burn

I'm gonna live like tomorrow never comes
There's no end in sight, tonight we black out the sun
Better hold on tight, before you know it's gone
And live like tomorrow never comes

Woah-oh
Woah-oh

Woah-oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh
Woah-oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh

I keep looking for some kind of sign
Trying to hold on in this race against time
I can't say where the next bend might be
That is the beauty in life's mystery
That is the beauty in life's mystery

I'm gonna live like tomorrow never comes
There's no end in sight, tonight we black out the sun
Better hold on tight, before you know it's gone
And live like tomorrow never comes

Woah-oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh
Woah-oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh

There's no end in sight, for tonight we black out the sun

Woah-oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh
Woah-oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh

One Day

On the breeze you came blowing in
Never knew I'd give myself again
Like a bird floating on the wind
Your heart was made for flying

One day with you
Is all that it takes
To bring me back again, I fall
I'm always careless
Never concerned where I land

In the night like a long lost friend
My heart wondering where you been
We'll never lose our way again
Our flame, it is undying

One day with you
Is all that it takes, yes
To heal me again, I fall
I'm always careless
Never concerned where I land

Oh, you lift me up off the ground
(Light as a feather)
Time after time
My love for you climbs
Over and over and over and over

One day with you
Is all that it takes, yes
To bring me back again, I fall
I'm always careless
Never concerned where I land

(Na na na na)
All I really need is your love
(Na na na na na na, that's all baby)
(Na na na na)
All I really need is your love
(Na na na na na na, that's all baby)
All that I want is

One day with you
Is all that it takes

Dress Blues

What can you see from your window?
I can't see anything from mine
Flags on the side of the highway
And scripture on grocery store signs
Maybe eighteen was too early
Maybe thirty or forty is too
Did you get your chance to make peace with the man
Before he sent down his angels for you?

Mamas and grandmamas love you
'Cause that's all they know how to do
You never planned on the bombs in the sand
Or sleeping in your dress blues

Your wife said this all would be funny
When you came back home in a week
You'd turn twenty-two and we'd celebrate you
In a bar or a tent by the creek
Your baby would just about be here
Your very last tour would be up
But you won't be back, they're all dressin' in black
Drinking sweet tea in styrofoam cups

Mamas and grandmamas love you
American boys hate to lose
You never planed on the bombs in the sand
Or sleepin' in your dress blues

Now the high school gymnasium's ready
Full of flowers and old legionnaires
Nobody showed up to protest
They just sniffle and stare
There's red, white, and blue in the rafters
And there's silent old men from the corps
What did they say when they shipped you away
To give all in some God awful war?

Nobody here could forget you
You showed us what we had to lose
You never planned on the bombs in the sand
Or sleeping in your dress blues

No, no you never planned on the bombs in the sand
Or sleeping in your dress blues

Young And Wild

(I remember, I remember back in the day)

When I look up at the stars
No matter where you are
You're always in my heart
You're always in my heart

When the walls are closing in
You're the sun upon my skin
You're always where I am
You're always where I am

Wild child
Living in the moment
World in my arms
Too young to know it
Oh, you made me feel so alive
(We were young and wild)
Had a good thing going
But we couldn't make it
Even if I could
I wouldn't change it
When I look back I just smile
We were young and wild

When I was feeling black and blue
I could always count on you
You always made me new
Always made me new

And even though it was the end
If you ever need a friend
I'll be coming back again
I'll be coming back again

Wild child
Nothing that could stop us
Parking in the cut
And fogging up the windows
Oh, you made me feel so alive
(We were young and wild)
They say nothing good's
Gonna last forever
We were pedal to the metal
And always together
When I look back I just smile

I lay there silent in the sand
And listen while you whisper
To another lonely setting sun
Whose heart is always distant
Memories won't be the death of me
As long as I could feel you
Long as I could feel you

Wild child
Do you still remember
Skip school, drink
And get high agenda
Oh, it made me feel so alive
(We were young and wild)
Like my first real love
That I thought would make it
Our greatest gifts can be
Mistakes we're making
So when I look back I just smile
We were young and wild

(I remember, I remember back in the day)
(I remember, I remember back in the day)
Young and wild
(I remember, I remember back in the day, I remember)
Young and wild
(I remember, I remember back in the day, I remember)

Junkyard

I have lived in a junkyard,
Where the weeds eat up the rain
If you get anything there, even out of place
You know there's hell to pay

And he said, "You're as sick, as you are lovely,
And in need of a hand"
He tells me, "You are never worthy"
But I was just a child, you see
That's my reality

He had a sick little girl, dirty and harmed
With a breast plate made of metal
She drives all day in a rusty Buick
And her feet don't reach the pedals

Got a jar of flies, a father's disguise,
Where his heart should be
A mouth is sown together
She screams with those eyes
(She screams with those eyes)
She screams with those eyes

She's as sick, as she is lovely
And in need of my hand
He tells her, "You are never worthy"
She was all alone, you see
That was her reality

Yeaaaah...
Well I've shoulda been sleepin', shoulda been dreamin'
But I wake up to broken glass
There'll be one more empty desk in my homeroom class
I got an old bone pocket knife, tight in my right hand
To save my poor mother from the junkyard man

And I say, "He's as sick as he is lovely,
And in need of a hand"
He will know he's not worthy
When he dies alone you'll see
That's his reality

I'm not sick, I am lovely
And hatred is the curse of man
And I will not feel unworthy
Cause I've washed my hands, you see
That's my reality, yeah

I'll Be Your Man (Song For A Daughter)

You're gonna make the finest momma someday
Some man will take you away
But until then
Chase down your dreams
Laugh all the time and believe
That love's gonna conquer all things
So until then
I'll be your man

There was a time when I thought I knew love until you came into this world
Time keeps on flying but you're always gonna be my baby girl

So as you walk through this life you will see
The world's what you want it to be
But until then
Go on and dance, dance like there's no one around
Never stop singing out loud
And until then
I'll be your man

There was a time when I thought I knew love until you came into this world
Time keeps on flying but you're always gonna be my baby girl

Go and have a ball
Take every chance that you make
You know I'll be one call away
I'll always be
I'll always be your man

Hold on child, hold on tight to your old man
Hold on child, hold on tight to your old man
I'm gonna hold you tight under my wing long as I can
Hold you tight under my wing long as I can

Hold on child (sweet child of mine)
Hold on tight to your old man
Hold on child (hold on tight)
Hold on tight to your hold man
(Your old man loves you)

Hold on tight
I'm gonna hold you tight (hold on child)
Under my wing long as I can (you're my my my my girl)
Hold you tight
Your old man loves you (Under my wing long as I can)
You're my babe, my babe, my baby
You're my babe, my babe, my baby
Hold on tight (I will hold on)
Under my wing long as I can (love's gonna find you my child)
Hold on child, under my wing (love's gonna conquer)
Under my wing, under my wing
Hold on, hold on
Hold on, hold on
Hold on, hold on
Hold on
I'll be your man

Wildfire

Ain't nothing 'bout loving me
Is gonna be easy
I've never been the kind
Who would ever play it safe
If you wanna come along
Then you best believe me
I'm making you a promise
That I'm never gonna break

Gotcha burning like a wildfire, baby
Running out of control
Take you walking on a highwire crazy
No net down below
It's gonna get a little too far out there
Just you wait and see
Love you like a wildfire
Come swimming in the flames with me

It'll be the best part of a romance novel
Writing our story, mama, line by line
See how it might feel like trouble
Staring down the barrel of a heart like mine

And get you burning like a wildfire, baby
Running out of control
Take you walking on a highwire crazy
No net down below
It's gonna get a little too far out there
Just you wait and see
Love you like a wildfire
Come swimming in the flames with me

I wanna chase your love
Like a tail chases a comet
And move you like the wind
Through the amber waves of grain
I wanna lay you down
In a field of autumn clover, honey
Don't look down, just take my hand

Wildfire, baby
Running out of control
Take you walking on a highwire crazy
No net down below
It's gonna get a little too far out there
Just you wait and see
Love you like a wildfire, wildfire
Come swimming in the flames with me

Tomorrow Never Comes (Acoustic Version)

I've been climbing my way through the sky
Searching for answers that I'll never find
Losing my breath as I fall
Learning to fly, letting go of it all
Learning to fly, letting go of it all

I'm gonna live like tomorrow never comes
There's no end in sight, tonight we black out the sun
Better hold on tight, before you know it's gone
And live like tomorrow never comes

I've been trying to open my eyes
Take it all in as the world passes by
Getting lost in the twists and the turns
Finding these questions inside me still burn
Finding these questions inside me still burn

I'm gonna live like tomorrow never comes
There's no end in sight, tonight we black out the sun
Better hold on tight, before you know it's gone
And live like tomorrow never comes

Woah-oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh
Woah-oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh

I keep looking for some kind of sign
Trying to hold on in this race against time
I can't say where the next bend might be
That is the beauty in life's mystery
That is the beauty in life's mystery

I'm gonna live like tomorrow never comes
There's no end in sight, tonight we black out the sun
Better hold on tight, before you know it's gone
And live like tomorrow never comes
There's no end in sight, for tonight we black out the sun

Woah-oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh
Woah-oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh
