lyrics

I cry because they don’t know you like I have come to know you
they’ve just heard stories of distance
of a hand that is quick to destroy
and smack them like Sodom’s dirty sinners
and choke out my morning joy

They say that you do not love me
they say that I am naive
for ever believing in snakes speaking
they say it cause they’ve never seen
how tender you treat me, how you hear me
how you speak your peace into me

It was the heart you were after from the start
and no behavior, no family tree, no metal or paper
could keep you from or bring you to me

By name, I’m not ashamed of you
but those who claim they are in love with you too
then behave as though what you want them to do
is handle judgment for you and cause pain

Poor fools have only heard stories of you
second-hand smoke of the jaded and bruised
they’ll need a fresh start too
they, once like me, are severely confused

It was the heart you were after from the start
and no behavior, no family tree, no metal or paper
could keep you from or bring you to me
