Never Again

length: 4:21
writer: Nickelback, Chad Kroeger

He's drunk again, it's time to fight
She must have done something wrong tonight
The living room becomes a boxing ring
It's time to run when you see him clenching his hands
She's just a woman, never again

I hear her scream from down the hall
Amazing she can even talk at all
She cries to me "go back to bed"
I'm terrified that she'll wind up dead in his hands
She's just a woman, never again

Been there before but not like this
Seen it before but not like this
Never before have I ever seen it this bad
She's just a woman, never again

Just tell the nurse you slipped an fell
It starts to sting as it starts to swell
She looks at you, she wants the truth
It's right out there in the waiting room with those hands
Lookin' just as sweet as he can, never again

Seen it before but not like this
Been there before but not like this
Never before have I ever seen it this bad
She's just a woman, never again

Father's a name you haven't earned yet
You're just a child with a temper
Haven't you heard "don't hit a lady"
Kickin' your *** would be a pleasure

He's drunk again, it's time to fight
Same old ****, just on a different night
She grabs the gun, she's had enough
Tonight she'll find out how ****in' tough is this man
Pulls the trigger fast as she can, never again

Seen it before but not like this
Been there before but not like this
Never before have I ever seen it this bad
She's just a woman, never again

Never made it as a wise man
I couldn't cut it as
A poor man stealing
Tired of living like a blind man
I'm sick of sight without
A sense of feeling
And this is how you remind me

This is how you remind me
Of what I really am
This is how you remind me
Of what I really am

It's not like you to say sorry
I was waiting on a different story
This time I'm mistaken
For handing you
A heart worth breaking
And I've been wrong
I've been down
Into the bottom of every bottle
These five words in my head
Scream
Are we having fun yet?

Yeah, yeah, yeah, no no
Yeah, yeah, yeah, no no

It's not like you didn't know that
I said I love you and
I swear I still do
And it must have been so bad
Cause living with him must have
Damn near killed you

And this is how you remind me
Of what I really am
This is how you remind me
Of what I really am

It's not like you to say sorry
I was waiting on a different story
This time I'm mistaken
For handing you
A heart worth breaking
And I've been wrong
I've been down
Into the bottom of every bottle
These five words in my head
Scream
Are we having fun yet?

Yeah, yeah, yet, no no
Yeah, yeah, yeah, no no
Yeah, yeah, yeah, no no
Yeah, yeah, yeah, no no

Never made it as a wise man
I couldn't cut it as
A poor man stealing
And this is how you remind me
This is how you remind me

This is how you remind me
Of what I really am
This is how you remind me
Of what I really am

It's not like you to say sorry
I was waiting on a different story
This time I'm mistaken
For handing you
A heart worth breaking
And I've been wrong
I've been down
Into the bottom of every bottle
These five words in my head
Scream
Are we having fun yet?

Yeah, yeah
Are we having fun yet?
Yeah, yeah
Are we having fun yet?
Yeah, yeah
Are we having fun yet?
Yeah, yeah, no, no

Woke Up This Morning

length: 3:51
I paid my last respects this mornin' on an early grave
Already said goodbye, nothin' left to say
A tiny church a tiny town and not a tear was spent
Not how I wanted it, I'm hating all of this

Well I'm hating, all of this
I'm hating, all of this
All of this, all of this
Now I know why, I hide my love from you some days
No I don't mind keeping this bottled inside me
You came along, and tore this world out around me
Looks like you found me
Now I know why
I felt like **** when I woke up this morning

I've been a loser all my life, I'm not about to change
If you don't like, there's the door, nobody made you stay
There ain't a woman on the planet who can deal with it
Just how I wanted it, I'm hating all of this

Well I'm hating, all of this
I'm hating, all of this
All of this, all of this
Now I know why, I hide my love from you some days
No I don't mind keeping this bottled inside me
You came along, and tore this world out around me
Looks like you found me
Now I know why
I felt like **** when I woke up this morning

All of this, all of this
Now I know why, I hide my love from you some days
No I don't mind keeping this bottled inside me
You came along, and tore this world out around me
Looks like you found me
Now I know why
I felt like **** when I woke up this morning

Too Bad

length: 3:53
writer: Nickelback, Chad Kroeger
Father's hands are lined with dirt
From long days in the field
Mother's hands are serving meals
In a cafe on Main Street
With mouths to feed
Just trying to keep clothing on our backs
And all I hear about
Is how it's so bad, it's so bad

It's too bad it's too bad
Too late, so wrong, so long
It's too bad we had no time to rewind
Let's walk, let's talk
Let's talk

You left without saying goodbye
Although I'm sure you tried
You'd call the house from time to time
To make sure we're alive
But you weren't there
Right when I needed you the most
And now I dream about it
And how it's so bad, it's so bad

It's too bad it's too bad
Too late, so wrong, so long
It's too bad we had no time to rewind
Let's walk, let's talk
It's so bad
It's too bad it's too bad
It's too late, so wrong, so long
It's too bad we had no time to rewind
Let's walk, let's talk
(Let's talk)

Father's hands are lined with guilt
For tearing us apart
Guess it turned out in the end
Just look at where we are
We made it out
We still got clothing on our backs
And now I scream about it
And how it's so bad, it's so bad, it's so bad, it's so bad

It's too bad it's too bad
Too late, so wrong, so long
It's too bad we had no time to rewind
Let's walk, let's talk
It's so bad
It's too bad it's too bad
It's too late, so wrong, so long
It's too bad we had no time to rewind
Let's walk, let's talk

No time
Let's walk
Let's talk

Just For

length: 4:04
I want to take his eyes out
Just for looking at you
Yes I do
I want to take his hands off
Just for touching you
Yes I do

And I want to rip his heart out
Just for hurting you
And I want to break his mind down
Yes I do

And I want to make him
Regret life since the day he met you
Yes I do
And I want to make him
Take back all that he took from you
Yes I do

And I want to rip his heart out
Just for hurting you
And I want to break his mind down
Yes I do
Yes I do
Yes I do
Yes I do

And I want to rip his heart out
Just for hurting you
And I want to break his mind down
Yes I do
Yes I do
Yes I do
Yes I do

Hollywood

length: 3:05
Please don't be too long while you're gone
There ain't enough to keep me here too long
Not like the last time I stood in line
Just enough to keep me bouncing off the wall, yeah

The new day, the new tray that comes around
Pills and all, enough to kill him while he sleeps
Is this the alley we dragged him to
Just off of Hollywood and Normandy

It didn't work like she said it would
Just like livin' in Hollywood
Just like a bad dream, or so it seems
Just like I'm back in emergency

Please don't be too long while you're gone
There ain't enough to keep me here too long
Not like the last time I stood in line
Just enough to keep me bouncing off the wall, yeah

It didn't work like she said it would
Just like livin' in Hollywood
Just like a bad dream, or so it seems
Just like I'm back in emergency

Money Bought

length: 3:25
Cherry stem with her mouth she could tie in a knot
Favorite trick she does, one in ten that she's got
Making friends, setting trends, hardly having to try
All the looks, by the book, best that money can buy

Look what your money bought
It's all that she's got
It keeps her company
Straight from Mom and Daddy

Last chance to dance, out in back of the bar
Shakin' hands, nice to meet you, I don't know who you are
She has a toke and makes a joke about the alley man
Never pleasured from the treasure in a garbage can

Look what your money bought
It's all that she's got
It keeps her company
Straight from Mom and Daddy

Cherry stem with her mouth she could tie in a knot
Favorite trick she does, one in ten that she's got
Making friends, setting trends, hardly having to try
All the looks, by the book, best that money can buy

Look what your money bought
It's all that she's got
It keeps her company
Straight from Mom and Daddy

Look what your money bought
It's all that she's got
It keeps her company
Straight from Mom and Daddy

Where Do I Hide

length: 3:38
producer: Rick Parashar
lyricist: Chad Kroeger
composer: Nickelback
Got a criminal record, I can't cross state lines
First on the bad list, and you're last on mine
Lookin' for a scapegoat, long past due
Walking down the aisle, still straining you

Still hear you screaming where do I hide?
All he asks, I said hurry inside

He said, she said, no she don't
Be back before morning, you know she won't
I remember that summer, like yesterday
And I remember his mother, as he was dragged away

I still hear him screaming
Where do I hide?
All he asks, I say hurry inside
A whole lot of memory
Yours and not mine
All he asks, I said hurry inside

Got a criminal record, I can't cross state lines
First on the bad list, and you're last on mine
Lookin' for a scapegoat, long past due
Walking down the aisle, still straining you

Still hear you screaming
Where do I hide?
All he asks, I say hurry inside
A whole lot of memory
Yours and not mine
All he asks, I said hurry inside
Where do I hide?

Hangnail

length: 3:55
My hopes just fell, and I can't see
The reason why, why there is blood on my sleeve
And all this time, I thought it mine
But it's not, it's yours and

It's not worth it for me, gets harder every time call you
This life you lead, like us living in a shiny ballroom
Next time you bleed, right about this time tomorrow
Next time you steal, better ask before you borrow

And I don't see too well, don't sing too well
And so I settle to scream
Just grab your ****, and leave with it
They won't make no statues of you

It's not worth it for me, gets harder every time call you
This life you lead, like us living in a shiny ballroom
Next time you bleed, right about this time tomorrow
Next time you steal, better ask before you borrow
This label "thief", find a better title suited for you
This tidal wave, is coming down upon you

This time I've forgotten
I swear this **** was rotten
This time, I believe it
Cause I've seen the **** you're needin'

It's not worth it for me, gets harder every time call you
This life you lead, like us living in a shiny ballroom
Next time you bleed, right about this time tomorrow
Next time you steal, better ask before you borrow
This label "thief", find a better title suited for you
This tidal wave, is coming down upon you

Good Times Gone

length: 5:19
guest slide guitar: Ian Thornley
Lost it on the chesterfield
Or maybe on
A gamblin' wheel
Lost it in a diamond mine
It's dark as hell
And hard to find
You can climb to the
Top of the highest tree
You can look around
But you still won't see
What I'm lookin' for

Where the good times gone?
Where the good times gone?
All the stupid fun
And all that **** we've done
Where the good times gone?
Well I still don't know

Out in the back
In the old corn field
Underneath the tractor wheel
Thought I'd dig
Till I'd found it first
Broke my back
And died of thirst
You can bribe the devil
You can pray to God
You can sell off
Everything you got
And you still won't know

Where the good times gone?
Where the good times gone?
All the stupid fun
And all that **** we've done
Where the good times gone?
And you still don't know

Saw it on the silver screen
Preacher says
"Don't know what it means"
Last page ad
In a comic book
Bought me a map
Showed me where to look
It ain't carved of stone
Or made of wood
And if you paid for it
Then it's still no good
And you still won't know
What I'm looking for

Where the good times gone?
Where the good times gone?
All the stupid fun
And all that **** we've done
Where the good times gone?
