Bad Apple

  • Lyrics
  • A bath tab with a stranger
    Made love to a Cajun dancer
    Then several hours later
    Life???s a little shorter.
    The drink that overwhelmed me
    Such confusion of a beauty
    The poison for the lonely
    For all the world to sing when you???re out of time
    Those bad apples no friend of mine

    What you want
    So what you need
    With who you love
    Not what they see
    When all you have you got for free
    The things you do you don???t believe
    The mistakes you made just never leave
    When all you have gonna make you see

    A picture of Jesus on your windshield
    A Monday afternoon
    Drive for miles and miles again
    Just me and you.
    A wasted hour and I feel younger
    A million miles away
    The day I die gets a little closer
    Still here to stay.
    You???re out of time
    Those bad apples no friend of mine

    What you want
    So what you need
    With who you love
    Not what they see
    When all you have you got for free
    The things you do you don???t believe
    The mistakes you made just never leave
    When all you have gonna make you seeWriter/s: JAMES MICHAEL CRATCHLEY, MIGUEL KOCH, JONATHAN SAMUEL LLOYD, DAN WHITE
