Call me by my second name
i suppose i'll still be the same
you didn't call back on the phone
didn't i ----
i keep asking my people
if it's all the same
met you in the summer
you wrote me letters through november
then over the winter we went on the road together
i hate to think what you must think of me now
after two or something
when i kept my heart spread out
but two too can't be cruel
i don't live in no cave
i just sleep in the dark
like most people do
why can't you?
and though i'd hate to think i'm just like
everybody, everybody else
my heart set me down at the rock star bars
that may be just as fucked up as the rest
nobody should hang from a collar
or the hem of their dress
hungry women do you cling to your pain?
oh yes oh yes
if i pulled the wool over your eyes
i pulled it over mine too
so don't close those eyes when you sing
don't you know people like me are watching you
if you fake this strong a feeling
you will be lonely for almost all the time
hey baby
pretty baby
happy 2009

and though i talk my fair share of trash
i haven't the stomach to be hated
while couples upstairs scream how will you pay
when i choose to stay
i don't sing
i'm in debt to my neck
will you overhear me pray
for love and forgiveness that way
we can always say there's a secret sweetness
unspoken between us
when you got in the car toward toledo
i took off as fast as i could
don't indulge me don't say baby one day maybe
you know it ain't no

and you too can't be cruel
and i don't live in no cave
i just sleep in the dark
like most people do
why can't you
you too can't be cruel
oh we work in our caves
we live in the dark
and i know you do too
don't you
and i do too

so if I pull the wool over your eyes
I pulled it over mine too
so don't close those eyes when you sing
don't you know people like me are watching you
if your faith is strong but fleeting
you will be lonely for almost all your life
hey baby
pretty baby
oh

how about (another?) ------
i'll corner you in your old folk's home
when your not quite dead yet
i'll kick back your wheelchair
and kiss your wrinkled forehead
hand you your last cigarette
how about an idle threat
baby i will get you yet

baby i'll make your life miserable if you don't make me your wife
or i'll just float through space for the rest of my life
no tell this -----
i'm gone call me major tom
go on dear loser
he's gonna catalog your name
so would you hand it in your body
stand triumphant in your shame
make phone call after call
say man, he didn't know you at all
anyway you'll only make your life miserable if you bring anyone home
since you love only halfhearted
you'll always wake up alone
there was no true love
tonight when you're distressed
they just say
this is alright i guess
so when you touch her
villainous boy
do you feel like a fake
as you look at your lover and your lover looks away
with one shoulder turned the way she says no
isn't what i meant at all

i know i'm crazy
i hear the kids outside play and say
lady, hey you old lady
how would you like to pay
you will some day

i know i'm crazy
will i hear the doubtful ---

he's flowing back hearts to me saying
honey would you like some more
honey would you like some more
well, honey would you like some more
well, i know you've been down that road before
honey would you like some more
honey would you like some more
honey would you like some more
well i know you've been down that road before
honey would you like some more
honey would you like some more
honey would you like some more
yeah i know i've been down that road before
you know i would like some more
