Lyrics

Break These Chains

Written By: The ISSUES

I heard tonight
That Mr. right
Told you it's over

And you're afraid
Of what they'll say
When days turn colder

So turn down the lights
This is the night
His game is over
It will work out
And you'll be alright
Now you can break these chains tonight

Now that he's gone
You're not his pawn
Things will get better

Wrote down this song
So he'd sing along
And choke on the letters

So turn down the lights
This is the night
His game is over
It will work out
And you'll be alright
Now you can break these chains tonight

Invincible

Written By: The ISSUES

Another day
It's all brand new
Another day
To spend with you

It feels alright
It's so damn cool
I feel alive
Because of you

And if I live one thousand years
I'd find new ways to show I cared
And if I died one thousand times
I'd still come back for you each time

Now here we are
A brave new world
I'd live forever
If I could

So take this song
It's all been said
And hear the voice
Inside my head

And if I lived one thousand years
I'd find new ways to show I cared
And if I died one thousand times
I'd still come back for you each time

You're beautiful
Untouchable
You make me feel
Invincible

She is the one I need
She is the one I fell for
She's the one that I
I would walk straight through Hell for

And if I lived a thousand years
I'd find new ways to show I cared
And if I died a thousand times
I'd still come back for you each time

You're beautiful
Untouchable
You make me feel
Invincible

Machine Gun

Written By: The ISSUES

Rolled in the club and you were drinking wine
Tell me what's on your mind
Hey sugar can't you see we're wasting time
I gotta make you mine

Yo mother please are you for real
Do you wanna be my girl
I think I may give it a try and party up with you tonight
I wanna meet you on the floor baby can I get some more
So back it up let's get it done
Shake it like a machine gun

My down and dirty dolly you're so fine
I need you all the time
My panic panic buttons on the rise
The thunders in your thighs
I'm creepin' up hey yeah I'm creepin' in
I need some skin to win
I ain't no happy meal I'm super sized
I got you in my sights

Yo mother please are you for real
Do you wanna be my girl
I think I may give it a try and party up with you tonight
I wanna meet you on the floor baby can I get some more
So back it up let's get it done
Shake it like a machine gun

I can feel you I know you're on
I can tell you're alive

Yo mother please
are you for real
Do you wanna be my girl
Yo mother please
Are you for real
Do you wanna be my girl

Yo mother please are you for real
Do you wanna be my girl
I think I may give it a try and party up with you tonight
I wanna meet you on the floor baby can I get some more
So back it up let's get it done
Shake it like a machine gun
