Honest With Me
Bob Dylan

Well, Iím stranded in the city that never sleeps
Some of these women they just give me the creeps
Iím avoidiní the Southside 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 youíre tryiní to do whatís right
You donít understand itómy feelings for you
Youíd be honest with me if only you knew

Iím not sorry for nothiní Iíve done
Iím glad I foughtóI only wish weíd won
The Siamese twins are cominí to town
People canít waitótheyíre gathered around

When I left my home the sky split open wide
I never wanted to go back thereóIíd rather have died
You donít understand itómy feelings for you
Youíd be honest with me if only you knew

My woman got a face like a teddy bear
Sheís tossiní a baseball bat in the air
The meat is so tough you canít cut it with a sword
Iím crashiní my car, trunk first into the boards

You say my eyes are pretty and my smile is nice
Well, Iíll sell it to ya at a reduced price
You donít understand itómy feelings for you
Youíd be honest with me, if only you knew

Some things are too terrible to be true
I wonít come here no more if it bothers you
The Southern Pacific leaving me at nine forty-five
Iím having a hard time believiní some people were ever alive

Iím stark naked, but I donít care
Iím going off into the woods, Iím huntiní bare
You donít understand itómy feelings for you
Well, youíd be honest with me if only you knew

Iím here to create the new imperial empire
Iím going to do whatever circumstances require
I care so much for youódidnít think that I could
I canít tell my heart that youíre no good

Well, my parents they warned me not to waste my years
And I still got their advice oozing out of my ears
You donít understand itómy feelings for you
Well, youíd be honest with me if only you knew
