01. Perfect Match

(Verse)
I hardly know you and you hardly know me too
but you were meant for me and I was meant for you
Let me be yours and you can be mine too
the first time I had laid my eyes on you I thought

(Bridge)
Ohhh, there is something I will have to let you know...

(Chorus)
I never knew anyone so beautiful
and you never met anyone like me
and I am more than that,
baby, I'm the perfect match

(Verse)
So now we go out and have a drink or two
and then I take you home and I won't leave you
Until the break of day, until I'm old and gray
until I die and I lie down and even then I will say

(Bridge)
(Chorus)

(Verse)
I hardly know you and you hardly know me too
but you were meant for me and I was meant for you
Let me be yours and you can be mine too
the first time had laid my eyes on you...

(Chorus)
(Outtro)

Baby, I'm the perfect match
Baby, I'm the perfect match
Baby, I'm the perfect match
Baby, I'm the perfect match

02. Promises

(Verse)
I said you're right for me, I want to let you know
that I am all when you're with me, and I am nothing when you're gone
cause when you rise you shine like fire in the sky
when you break down and cry it tears me up inside
I said I stand by you until this night is through
and when you rise you'll find that I am still with you

I said I was and I will be in love with you
I said I was and I will be in love, so in love with you

(Chorus)
Oh oh oh oh / With you, oh oh oh

(Verse)
Well all these promises I made and all of my mistakes
they come to haunt me now as I am broken and alone
and it haunts me to this day, all these things that I would say
oh I wish I could go back and keep these promises I made

(Solo)
(C-Part)

Still bleeding from a thousand wounds
Still bleeding from a thousand wounds
Still bleeding from a thousand wounds
Still bleeding from a thousand wounds

(Outtro)
I said you're right for me, I want to let you know
that I am all when you're with me, and I am nothing now

03. Weekends

(Verse)
Your voice sounds sad on the telephone
you said you feel, you feel so alone
Well, I wish I had something I could say
to make you feel less bad, and tell you I am there

(Chorus)
On the weekends, when I belong to you
On the weekends

(Verse)
Can I make up for what I put us through
and will it come out, the way I wanted it to
You know we need our faith in what we do
You know these weeks, they get so long,
well I long to see you

(Chorus)
On the weekends, when I belong to you
On the weekends, when I belong to you
On the weekends

(Outtro)
On the weekends, when I belong to you
On the weekends, when I belong to you
On the weekends

04. Like That

(Verse)
I am still, I hear you breathe
you are an angel underneath
I lie awake, and I'm afraid
that when I wake up, you could be away

I kiss you hair, turn off the light
enjoy the moment, when you say good night
over and over

(Chorus)
What a wonderful night, I cannot remember
one single moment where I've had my love in my arms like that
What a wonderful night, and when I close my eyes
I have you there inside my head —
wish it could always be like that

(Verse)
You left your shirt, it smells so fine
it makes me think of you, all the time
This brand new day, and come what may
I wrote these lines for you just to say

That we are young, and we can have
so many more nights and days just like that
forever and ever

(Chorus)
(Bridge)

They say that nothing lasts forever
I know that nothing lasts forever
I wish that we could always be together
I wish that we could last forever
I wish that we could last forever

(Chorus)
(Outtro)

05. Tonight

(Verse)
If this world should come to an end tonight
Then will you let me die with your hand in mine?

With people screaming, catching falling stars, tonight,
and your hand in mine

A planetary darkness swallows all of us
The stars are coming out to shine and burn, tonight,
and your hand in mine

(Chorus)
And you — hey ya! — you look so beautiful tonight
And you — hey ya! — you look so immortal tonight
Hey ya!
Tonight is all we got
Hey ya!
Tonight is all we are
Hey ya!
So put your hand in mine

(Bridge)
And let me die with your hand in mine
Let me die with your hand in mine
Let me die with your hand in mine
Let me die with your hand in mine,
with your hand in mine

(Chorus)

06. One

Musik & Text: James Hetfield, Lars Ulrich

(Verse)
I can't remember anything / can't tell if this is true or dream
deep down inside I feel to scream / this terrible silence stops me
Now that the war is through with me / I'm waking up, I cannot see
that there's not much left of me / nothing is real but pain now

(Chorus)
Hold my breath as I wish for death
Oh please God wake me

(Verse)
Back in the womb it's much too real / in pumps life that I must feel
but can't look forward to reveal / look to the time when I'll live
Fed through the tube that sticks in me / just like a wartime novelty
tied to machines that make me be / cut this life off from me

(Chorus)
Hold my breath as I wish for death
Oh please God wake me

(C-Part)
Darkness, imprisoning me / it's all that I see, it's absolute horror
I cannot live, I cannot die / trapped in myself, body my holding cell
This love has taken my sight / taken my speech, taken my hearing,
taken my arms, taken my legs / taken my soul, left me with life in hell
left me with life in hell / left me with life in hell

Now the world is gone, and I'm just one
Hold my breath as I wish for death

07. Lullaby

(Verse)
I know you feel the clock ticks this life away
and I know you think you amount to nothing
You know I know this mess that holds you back
and I have felt it all come down
When it all falls down, when it all comes crashing in

(Chorus)
There's a new star tonight on this velvet summer sky
and if ever you need hope just sing this lullaby, just sing and —

(Verse)
Don't give in to these voices in your head
these choices you have made were all your best
And don't give up don't let them break your faith
Oh, this will never be over, it will never end
And it never ends, and you'll need faith to make this stand

(Chorus)
There's a new star tonight on this dawning winter sky
and if ever you need love just sing this lullaby
It will find and lead you wherever you may go
and everything will be alright if you sing this lullaby,
if you sing this lullaby

(Bridge)
Just let go, close your eyes and drift away
and tomorrow everything will be okay, everything will be okay

08. Poison

(Verse)
You run through my veins
you have taken hold of everything I am
every thought I think, every thing I say
you intoxicate me in the sweetest way
every drop of you is more than I can take

I wish I were stronger but I'm not
and now your poison is my blood

(Chorus)
With you I self-destroy me
with every shot I defeat me
you're the sweetest poison I've ever known
and I can't stay away from you although I know
with you I self-destroy me
but without your poison I cannot be

(Verse)
You're the most delicate addiction
you're the sweet misery I exist on
you're my everything, you're this deadly sting
you make me give it all until I've given everything
every drop of you is more than I can take

I wish I were stronger but I'm not
and now your poison is my blood

(Chorus)

09. It Feels So Right

(Verse)
You really, really make me smile
you really make me want to spend the night
and just talk and figure out this life
all through the night, until the morning light,
it feels so, it feels so right

(Chorus)
Doo doo doo

(Verse)
You really, really make me shine
you really make me want to make you mine
and not just talk until the end of the night
I wanna figure out this life, but not tonight
cause it feels so, it feels so right

(Chorus)
Doo doo doo
Doo doo doo

(Bridge)
And every time I look at you
you make me feel so right
And every single thing you do
Tonight, there's nowhere I'd rather be
when you are with me

(Verse)
You really, really rock my world
though you are only such a little girl, with such a big smile
and you're so you in every single thing you do
I wanna figure out this life, but not tonight
cause it feels so, you make me feel so right

(Chorus)
Doo doo doo
Doo doo doo
Doo doo doo
Doo doo doo
