Honest With Me

(love and theft cbs, 2001)


Well i'm stranded in the city that never sleeps

Some of these women, they just give me the creeps

I'm avoidin satan's doorstep the best I can

These memories I got, they can strangle a man


Well I came ashore in the dead of the night

Lots of things can get in the way when you're

tryin to do what's right




IF ONLY YOU KNEW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


I'm not sorry for *nothin* I've done!

I'm glad I fought-I only wish we'd won

The siamese twins are comin to town

People can't  wait-they're gathered around


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 feelins 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 ibat into the air

The meat is so tough you can't cut it with a sword

I'm crashin my car, trunk first into the boards


You say my eyes are pretty and my smile is nice

Well, I'll sell it to the doctor at a reduced price

You don't understand it-my feelings 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 bothers you

The Southern Pacific's leaving at 9:45

You're 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

You'd be honest with me if only you knew


I'm here to create the new emperial empire

I'm gonna do whatever circumstances require

I care so much for you-you dint think that i could

I can't tell my heart that you're no good

You don't understand it

my feelings

for you

well you'd be honest with me

if only you knew


mr. dylan, uh Dad?

i fucked around w/ the lyrics, was necessary

to make 'em understand that they don't understand,

that goes double for you too, ok, sorry, thanx
