Lyrics

Black Widow

Written By: Cody Wilkins

She walks along the avenue after the sun goes down
Searching for her victims in the unsuspecting men about the town
Leaving bodies motionless and numb against he cold grey ground

A master of deception, she always arrives in disguise
With a swivel in her hips and a mystery beneath her gypsy eyes
She may look sweet and innocent but both of them are boldface lies

The sugar from her kiss will disappear beneath her bite
She'll paint your heart darker than a moonless prarie night
She'll leave you waiting for the sun wishing you were dead
As venom sinks into your blood and madness fills your head
Black Widow, Black Widow
Black Widow, Black Widow

Appearing as an angel, she has the devil's motives deep within
She'll wrap her legs around you and weave a heavy web around your skin
Once your tangled up you'll never see the light of day again

An image of an hourglass is painted fiery red upon her thigh
She shows it to her victims as their bodies twitch beneath the moonlit sky
The widow's bite will paralyze and silence every helpless cry

The sugar from her kiss will disappear beneath her bite
She'll paint your heart darker than a moonless prarie night
She'll leave you waiting for the sun wishing you were dead
As venom sinks into your blood and madness fills your head
Black Widow, Black Widow
Black Widow, Black Widow

The Matador

Written By: Cody Wilkins

I'm just a gringo all alone
Hellbent to make it on my own
Tijuana ain't no place
For a southern boy to roam

I fell in love with Spanish eyes
I Chased across the mountainside
I landed in a border town
In a casa built on lies

Chorus-
She said we could remain amigos
But no longer felt amore
I felt a burning in my eyes
She walked out the casa door
She said we could remain amigos
I knew exactly what she meant
Our love, it once had been en fuego
It could never be again

The matador rode into town
He looked my lover up and down
I could tell her caught her eye
As she gazed upon the ground

I really wanted to believe
My senorita wouldn't leave
In a casa built on lies
A tangled web we always weave

Chorus-
She said we could remain amigos
But no longer felt amore
I felt a burning in my eyes
She walked out the casa door
She said we could remain amigos
I knew exactly what she meant
Our love, it once had been en fuego
It could never be again

He rode upon a trusty steed
A long black stallion built for speed
I can't believe I missed the signs
All the clues I failed to read

He tamed the toro in the fight
He tamed my lover by the night
You could barely hear the cries
In the casa built on lies

Chorus-
She said we could remain amigos
But no longer felt amore
I felt a burning in my eyes
She walked out the casa door
She said we could remain amigos
I knew exactly what she meant
Our love, it once had been en fuego
It could never be again

I doubt I'll ever love again
I wouldn't know where to begin
I don't even speak the language
And I haven't got a friend

You know girl with Spanish eyes
Rode out of town at morning rise
I'll take a flame to all four walls
Of the casa built on lies

Chorus-
She said we could remain amigos
But no longer felt amore
I felt a burning in my eyes
She walked out the casa door
She said we could remain amigos
I knew exactly what she meant
Our love, it once had been en fuego
It could never be again
