Power Outage

(Karianne Gabaldon)

This song is about a marriage in which the wife is abusive. The husband had finally had enough and packed up the kids and got out of the toxic situation. Then the wife begs for them back. What happens next?... you’ll have to find that out yourself.

(Verse 1) Tonight I wake, To her barking at me. Throwing a lamp shade, Breaking many things. She yells at the fact, I drink every night. With Ronnie and Zach, And watch the bar fights. I say honey, it’s 3 am, You need to sleep. You’re gonna wake up the kids, So just don’t peep. She starts throwing her fists, I tell her to stop. I say this is it, And her knees drop. (Pre Chorus) Oh, There’s a fine electric line, Between, Now and the way it used to be Oh, If only she could go back, To the way she was... Before the lightning struck. (Chorus) The power’s out again, You know we can’t pretend. That you and I weren’t meant. Someday it’s got to end. (Verse 2) The kids and I, We’ve gotta pack our bags. We leave tonight. That’s final, and no taking backs. Carrie’s in the back, Crying all her tears. Ian’s next to Matt, They both quiver with fear. They ask me if mommy, Is coming with us. I tell them tomorrow, If she overcomes this. They ask what’s wrong, I can’t go on. I sit there in the car, Crying like a baby. (Pre Chorus) Oh, When the lighting struck, It lit a fire, Lost our desire. Oh, Something XXXXXXXX XX XXX XXXXX XXX XXXXX XXXXXX XXXX XXX XXXX XX XXXXX XXXXXXXX XXX XXXXXXXXX XXX XXXXXX XXX XXXX XX XXXXXXX XXXXXXXX XXXX XXX XXX X XXXXXXXXX XXXXXX XXXXXXX XXXXXX XXX XX XXXX XXXXXX XXXXXX XX XXXXXX XXXXXXXX XXXX XXXXXXXXXX XX XXXX XX XXXX XXXX XX XX XXXXXX XXXXX XXXXX XXXXX XXXXXXXX X XXXXX XX XXX XXX XXXXXX XXXXX XX XXX XXXXXX XXXXXXXX XXX XXXXXXXXX XXX XXXXXX XXX XXXX XX XXXXXXX XXXXXXXX XXXX XXX XXX X XXXXXXXXX XXXXXX XXXXXXX XXXXXX XXXXX XXXX XXX XXXXXXXXX XXX XXXXXX XXX XXXX XX XXXXXXX XXXXXXXX XXXX XXX XXX X XXXXXXXXX XXXXXX XXXXXXX XXXXXX XXX XX XXXX

Money Hungry

By Karianne Gabaldon

This is about how money can completely change one’s life around, usually for the bad. It’s about people who live off of the government because they’re so poor, but then get tons of money. Once their diving in the dough, they become different people. They start thinking they’re better than everyone else because they drive a Ferrari and talk about money constantly and money being their life. In other words, Money Hungry.
