"Blackheart" as written by Michael Burston, Philip Campbell, Ian Kilmister and Philip John Taylor....
Two sides to all of us, with me you get ´em both,
My good side´s wonderful, tho´ I don´t like to boast,
Better not cross over ´cos the other side´s a beast
But don´t expect the most if you can´t take the least

[Chorus]
Blackheart, what you think of me,
Blackheart, you want to believe,
The dark side´s all you want to see
Blackheart, Blackheart
What you want to do,
Blackheart
You know it´s always true
Give back what I get from you,
Blackheart

I know the ones I win, I know the ones I lose
I can´t apologise, I know I paid my dues
I can´t be sorry, if I ain´t always a saint
Like to be a nice guy, but don´t blame me if I ain´t

[Chorus]

So that´s the story, what you see is what you get,
No doubt there´s better men than me
But I ain´t met one yet
No doubt the dancer calls the tune,
So you can call on me
I´m all I´´ve got, and what I am is what I´ll be

Pay your money, take your choise, everybody´s free,
I know nobody´s perfect and if they are it won´t be me
I´ll be the bad guy in the movie of your life
Just thank your lucky stars I didn´t use a knife

Blackheart, what you think of me, Blackheart,
You want to believe
The dark side is all you want to see
Blackheart

    General CommentI think it's about a relationship in which the singer's girl has cheated on him, so he's exacted his revenge by cheating back...now she's angry at him, and the point of the song is to remind her that there are two sides to him, and that in the end she chooses which one he shows to her.

    General CommentDude, you're projecting. There's nothing in there about a girl cheating on him. Besides, Lemmy doesn't have "girlfriends", as far as I can tell. He's a self-described "whore". God bless him. Towards the top its just an admission that he's like everybody else. Nice guy with a dark side, but only if you cross him. Towards the end he's pointing out people's assumptions of him as a bad guy. "Blackheart, what you think of me, blackheart, You want to believe The dark side is all you want to see" Great tune regardless.
