    --New York Press

TIME FOR YOU (Reid Paley) I was born with a bullet in my head But I’ll find the time for you I’ll be fucked down and dirty til I’m dead But I’ll find the time for you Count the ways that you are lovely Count the ways that I can win I was born with a monkey on my back But I’ll find the time for you I’ve been gored in the brains and now I’m back And I’ll find the time for you Count the ways that you are lovely Count the ways that I can win I was born with a poison in my heart But I’ll find the time for you (Some other kind of ugliness I never really finished this part) But I’ll find the time for you I was born with a monkey on my back But I’ll find the time for you I’ve been gored in the brains and now I’m back And I’ll find the time for you Time for you Lyrics Appear by Permission The Monkey’s Paw (BMI) All Rights Reserved

THE BEST OF ALL (Reid Paley) You think I’m sad you must be mistaken Come try to look me in the eye You’d save my soul but souls are for breaking Don’t light a candle when I die You’d think by now You’d know that I’d Do anything for you That’s because Your next request will be The best of all You look so soft and warm when you’re sleeping All painted red all dressed in white Your silken silhouette when you’re seething Some risen angel in the night You’d think by now You’d know that I’d Do anything for you That’s because Your next request will be The best of all I’m only here to catch What you have in store for me I wouldn’t miss it For the world You’d think by now You’d know that I’d Do anything for you That’s because Your next request will be The best of all Your next request will be The best of all Lyrics Appear by Permission The Monkey’s Paw (BMI) All Rights Reserved
