Jack the lad! A message to you
You’re such a smooth character
So flash, so cool, it’s no wonder you get all the glam
So slick, so stylish, you love the attention too
You seem to be always around at night
With different guys and different girls, of different kinds
Is it your wicked scent and wicked taste
And a devilish burn that branded everyone’s minds
Tell me, were you my best friend as I yours Mr Daniels?
It’s always apparent that I would do crazy things around you
And I knew I knew, I should have stayed away
But yet, I need you, through thick and the thin
Remember that time we were at the bar
Like two brothers in arms, we’d drink the night away
You made me forget my troubles
and leave behind my worries… even if it were just for a while
The unforgettable memories
And the not-so unforgettable mistakes
But you have always been there for me
But now you’re my biggest regret
Look at me now
Look at my state
I’m here on my death bed
Waiting for this day
Where are you now?
Where have you gone?
I know now, that you were an unwanted friend
Goodbye Jack, I’m afraid this is the end.
