Demonicpagan, posted his interpretation of this. This is what he came up with.

Don't hate me, but I have a dirty little secret. I'm crazy in love and it feels good. We're at
the top of the world. Here is the scenario. This is me (a bad boy). Am I ready to go through with
this? She looks at me and if I could talk, I'd tell you all the things she said. It's going to be me,
here and now, so help me God. I'm that type of guy.

I now work. I get paid $85 bucks an hour. I have a new beginning with clean hands. This isn't a myth.

It's the same song. She's crafty. I'm going to bury myself alive. I'm torn in two. I'm just a fool
for love. What is my age again? I feel like a 10 year old. What would you do?

Enough with the questions. Where is my mind?

Since you've been gone, this charming man fell in love with a girl.

Cool it now! It takes two (to tango). Somebody told me that there is danger, yet it's been so long.
Things are going downhill from here. This is where story ends. It has been a cruel summer. She's the
girl all the bad guys want. It's game time. Time to play heroes and villains.

Where did you go? We need to prevent this tragedy.
  1. 44, the last song to be identified was the only song that was reversed.
