BUCK NAKED HEART
Patty Griffin


It must seem like a million miles away

But that don't mean it is

I sat and I thought, and I thought, of the things I could say

And I just came up with this


'Cause honesty is hard to handle

Truth is harder than hell

Is it love or flies to a candle

As years go by it's hard to tell

As years go by it's hard to tell


You're actin' like it's nothing, baby

But I don't think I can play that part

When you have looked straight in the eyes

Of my buck naked heart


We were sometimes light so bright it hurt your eyes

And everything, to the touch, feels burned and raw

But folding back into the arms of a lie

Can never change, no never change, those things we saw


I can hardly stand to see you

You're so careful what you say

Do you think you're the only one

Who ever gave something away


You're actin' like it's nothing, baby

But I don't think I can play that part

When you have looked straight in the eyes

Of my buck naked heart


'Cause honesty is hard to handle

Truth is harder than hell

Is it love or flies to a candle

As years go by it's hard to tell

As years go by it's hard to tell

Years go by, hard to tell, hard to tell


You're actin' like it's nothing, baby

But I don't think I can play that part

When you have looked straight in the eyes

Of my buck naked heart
