Me and you in a knock down drag out
Mouths full of hate
Both so angry we can't see straight
Its a long way back to your dead end street
Yeah. I know we're spent
But it takes all night if we drag our feet
(With) heels over head (and)
Eyes on the prize, (you) can't watch your back for a knife
I understand infatuation
but to lie?! You don't have to lie.
I can still hear the voice of Scrappy Dobbins
Though he's long since passed
In his cajun parlance (He's not from the North)
Sayin' "one thing I can't stand is a lie!
It makes it hard to live.
It's a scarlet letter they may not forgive"
That is the game, such is to blame,
Carefully choose whom to shame.
I understand exaggeration
But to lie?!
We were cutting a rug through Barbed Wire Love
And I could feel you pulling me in
I fell hook line and sinker
During Peace, Love and Understanding
When a heart wakes up
Can it only love once
Or over and over again?
Or is it merely a fax of the first time you went and laid it bare?
When you lie
Cuts me open when you lie
You don't have to lie
