about

This is an version with no vocals, in case someone more talented wants to record their own version...

Every week's theme is accompanied by 3 fake titles (as examples). One of the fake titles for this week caught my eye and I decided to write my own original song with that title.

lyrics

-=[ Lyrics ]=-

VERSE:

Let me buy us a round or two
so we can talk, my friend
What are you drinking?
We're all concerned for you
You're doing crazy things again
What are you thinking?

I don't mean to make you mad
But you're kind of off the rails
and we all know it.
I think you've been feeling sad
It's not that hard to tell
though you don't show it.

CHORUS:

Please don't walk away
I only say this for your sake
If I have to make you stay
I'll do whatever it may take

Stop staring at the clock
messing with your phone
and listen to me frankly
I will hit you with a rock
[pause]
And you will thank me.

All I'm trying to do
is knock some sense into your head
If something doesn't change real soon
you're gonna end up hurt or dead.

[beat]

VERSE:

Don't laugh; it's not a joke
I mean every word
that I am saying
Please don't think that I misspoke
or that you just misheard
'cos I'm not playing

I wish you wouldn't shout
If I didn't care, you bet
I'd leave you to it
But there is not a doubt
This is not an idle threat
Don't make me do it

CHORUS:

Please don't walk away
I only say this for your sake
If I have to make you stay
I'll do whatever it may take

I will hit you with a rock
[pause]
And you will thank me.
You seem to be in shock
I can tell
'cause you're staring at me blankly

All I'm trying to do
is knock some sense into your head
If something doesn't change real soon
you're gonna end up hurt or dead.

Stop staring at the clock
messing with your phone
and listen to me frankly
I will hit you with a rock
[pause]
And you will thank me.
You seem to be in shock
I can tell
'cause you're staring at me blankly
I will hit you with a rock
(I'll really hit you with a rock)
And you will thank me.

I will hit you with a rock
