Wasn't Made for These Times

           I keep looking for a place to fit
           Where i can speak my mind
           I've been trying hard to find the people
           That i won't leave behind

Met a Girl

Met a girl
A year ago
She knew everything there was to know
Her eyes were grey, her hair was jet
Oh, my evil baby i can't forget
So i'm dressed in black all the time
Dressed in black all the time
