HEARTSICK IN THE BASEMENT *Lyrics* For the fans

Take me to the basement. I'll make those begging eyes close. You listen for the footsteps that tell me, I've got to go. Don't worry. Don't worry. Your mother will never know. Then she won't have to hate me, When you leave me all alone.

And on those nights when new love don't seem right, I close my eyes for awhile. I think about that place in the basement, Where I laid with you, And who you used to be. Your new love's a mockery of me.

Take me to the basement. Let's stay out of your mother's hair. She always thought I was a drinker. If I was sober, she'd hate me anyway.

And on those nights when new love don't seem right, I close my eyes for awhile. I think about that place in the basement, Where I laid with you, And who you used to be. Your new loves a vendetta to me.

So I take rope to the basement. I make those begging eyes close. I listen for the footsteps that tell me, I've got to go. I don't worry. I don't worry. Your mother will never know, That her baby's tied up in the basement, With her new lover laying dead on the floor. I won't have to be jealous anymore. I won't have to be heartsick anymore. Anymore.
