"Lyric Raid" : "Back to Black" by Amy Winehouse

She may be at her bottom right now, but there's little denying that Amy Winehouse is one of the most talented artists of our generation. She is cutting edge and she avoids cookie cutter lyrics at all costs--even if the cost is getting inspiration from a rugged, drug-filled existence. Here are the lyrics from "Back to Black" from her 2006 album of the same name. Come back Amy!

"He left no time to regret.
Kept his dick wet,
With his same old safe bet.
Me and my head high,
And my tears dry.
Get on without my guy.
You went back to what you knew.
So far removed from all that we went through.
And I tread a troubled track.
My odds are stacked.
I'll go back to black.

We only said good-bye with words.
I died a hundred times.
You go back to her,
And I go back to,
I go back to us.

I love you much.
It's not enough.
You love blow and I love puff.
And life is like a pipe,
And I'm a tiny penny rolling up the walls inside.

We only said goodbye with words.
I died a hundred times.
You go back to her.
And I go back to.
Black, black, black, black, black, black, black..."
