Honest With Me

May 2001
cd imgLOVE AND THEFT

Well, I'm stranded in the city that never sleeps
Some of these women they just give me the creeps.
I'm avoidin' the south side the best I can
These memories I got they can strangle a man.

Well, I came ashore in the dead of the night
Lot of things can get in the way when you're tryin' to do what's right
You don't understand it, my feelin' for you
You'd be honest with me if you only knew

I'm not sorry for nothing I've done
I'm glad I fought, I only wish we won.
The Siamese twins are comin' to town
People can't wait, they've gatherin' 'round.

When I left my home the sky split open wide
I never wanted to go back there, I'd rather have died.
You don't understand it, my feelin' for you
You'd be honest with me if only you knew.

My woman got a face like a teddy bear
She's tossin' a baseball bat in the air.
The meat is so tough you can't cut it with a sword
I'm crashin' my car trump first into the board.

They say that my eyes are pretty and my smile is nice
Well, I'd sell it to ya at a reduced price.
You don't understand it, my feeling for you
You'd be honest with me if only you knew.

Some things are too terrible to be true
I won't come here no more if it's botherin' you.
There's a Southern Pacific leavin' at 9:45
I'm havin' a hard time, believin' some people were ever alive.

I'm stark naked but I don't care
I'm goin' off into the woods, I'm huntin' bare.
You don't understand it, my feeling for you
Well, you'd be honest with me if only you knew.

I'm here to create the new imperial empire
I'm gonna do whatever circumstances require.
I care so much for you, didn't think I could
I can't tell my heart that you're no good.

Well, my parents they warned me not to risk my years
And I still got their advice oozing out of my ears.
You don't understand it, my feeling for you
Well, you'd be honest with me if only you knew.  up
