A Bad Girl with a Good Heart (New Lyrics)

A Bad Girl with a Good Heart
Written by Josh Damigo
(C)2013

I’ve never been afraid of
A road that looked tough
I’ve never been scared of
A diamond in the rough
I know something’s buried
Underneath the rust
Oh yeah

I’ve never been afraid of
Steppin’ toe to toe
I’ve never been scared of
a puffy lip or broken nose
Yeah, I got two mean sisters
So I know how it goes
Oh yeah

So when you say
You’re no good for me
I just sit back and laugh
Cause all my candle needs
Is for you to strike a match
So if you’re running scared
Please don’t go too far
All I want is a bad girl
With a good heart

All I need is a scowl and a slight grin
A shot of whiskey with a cherry stem
A cloudy sky with some silver trim
A dark coffee with some light cream
A little devil on a good streak
Yeah, that would just suit me

So when you say
You’re no good for me
I just sit back and laugh
Cause all my candle needs
Is for you to strike a match
So if you’re running scared
Please don’t go too far
All I want is a bad girl
With a good heart

You could love me like a hail storm
You could hurt like hell
You could break my heart
Leave me locked up in jail

You could use me like cheap toy
You could hang me out to dry
But I’d give you the world
If I knew that you was mine

So if you’re running scared
Please don’t go to far
Cause all I want is my bad girl
With a good heart
All I want is my bad girl
With a good heart

About Joshua Lodge

Josh will cheerfully admit that he averaged less than a dozen people a show when he first began playing San Diego coffee houses and clubs. But he garnered diehard fans in the process, sold a few thousand copies of his EP, Pocket Change, and picked up few awards along the way. After a traumatic family incident Josh retreated inward, and he ended up writing what would ultimately become his breakout debut, Raw. The album was true to its name and people noticed - Josh picked up two San Diego Music Awards for "Best Acoustic" and "Best Local Recording," opened for the likes of Zac Brown, Jason Mraz, and Matt Nathanson, and had enough money and momentum to tour the country a few times over. A few years after Raw, there was his third EP, Hope. Whereas Raw was a mostly acoustic, vulnerable affair, Hope was a celebration. Pleading and poignant, heartfelt and heavy hearted, it segued effortlessly from orchestral to alt-country, eventually landing him in the top 25 on the country charts. One of the hardest working indie singer/songwriters in Southern California, Josh spent much of the year with producer Mike Butler, gathering up some of the finest musicians in town, shaping his songs and sound further still for his album I Will Be There out now on Randm Records. From the joyous encouragement of “Just Give Me a Call”, to the simple sincerity of the ballad “Tennessee”, Josh’s songwriting skills are clear, his voice rings true and his goals remain the same as when he started - to keep making the best music he can, and to share it with all.
