Violent Love
Johnny loves Jessie and he don't know why
All he wants to do is try to make her cry tonight
Jessie's such a pretty girl but always sad
Because Johnny's just a pretty boy who treats her bad at night
He's headed downtown to pick him up some waitress
Nail her to his mattress, Jessie's gonna hate this night
She can't say nothing 'cause she's been told
Another fuckin word her ass is out in the cold tonight
Two black eyes means he told her twice
But still she sits and cries

It's never enough
You know my heart likes it rough
I understand this ain't love
But I just, I just can't give you up
And even though you break my back
I'm always gonna take you back
When I need another heart attack,
Give me another heart attack
I can't get enough of your violent love,
Can't get enough of your violent love
Can't get enough of your violent love...

I was slinging whiskey at a bar downtown
To a crowd of broken strangers just trying to drown their minds
When in walks Johnny with his head held high
Just looking to see what his ravenous eye could find
I caught his eye, he took me in
I fell in love, he played to win
Before the night was old my ass was out in the cold again
And still at night sometimes I cry
I just can't say goodbye
