"You Won't Know" as written by and Jesse Lacey....
Hey hey hey! Mr. Hangman
Go get your rope

Your daughters weren't careful,
I fear that I am a slippery slope
Now even if I lay my head down at night
After a day I got perfectly right

She won't know
She won't know
She won't know

So pray, little Kay, love's God on a good day.
And you can't blame your mother,
She's trying not to see you as her worst mistake
And I wish that I could tell you right now, that I love you
But it looks like I won't be around
So you won't know

You won't know
You won't know
You won't know

So believe in me,
Believe that you think I'll let you down
Well I won't
They can fire everything they've got
And when you think I'm sunk
I will float on and on
I have burned the bush that covered my light
And now I'm scared I won't burn that bright

But you won't know
You won't know
You won't know

You're never going to feel as full as you felt
So let's go outside and we'll play William Tell
Take your time drawing your bead
I'll stand as still as you need
'Cause you're so good at talking smack,
You heart attack
But you're the apple of my eye anyway

My smiling face, it's on your plate, it's on a silver plate

So they say,
They say in heaven
There's no husbands and wives
On the day that I show up
They'll be completely out
Of their forgiveness supplies
And I cant use the telephone
To tell you that I'm dead and gone
So you won't know

You won't know
You won't know
You won't know

    General Commentthis is what i got:

    Hey, hey, hey, Mr. Hangman,
    Go get your rope

    Your daughters weren't careful,
    I fear that I am a slippery slope
    Now even if I lay my head down at night
    After a day I got perfectly right
    She won't know...

    So play little player, you gotta contend
    And you can't blame your mother,
    She's trying not to say I was the worst mistake
    And I wish that I could tell you right now (...I love you)
    But it looks like I won't be around
    So you won't know...
    You won't know...

    So believe in me, believe them
    You think I'll let you down
    Well I won't
    They can fire everything they've got
    What do you think? I'm sunk?
    I will float on (...and die)
    I am fine to put your gun to my life
    And know I'm scared it won't fire right
    You won't know...

    You're never going to feel as full as you felt
    So let's go outside and we'll play William Tell
    Take your time drawing a bead
    I'll stand as still as you need
    'Cause you're so good at talking smack,
    you heart attack
    But you're the apple of my eye anyway

    The smile on your face,
    It's on your plate...
    It's on a silver plate

    So they say,
    They say in heaven
    There's no husbands and wives
    On the day that I show up
    They'll be completely out
    Of their forgiveness supplies
    And I cant use the telephone
    To tell you that I'm dead and gone
    So you won't know
    You won't know...
    You won't know...
    Yeah, You won't know...
