my lyricsbox
Used to be a young gull, out on the hard streets
Gettin' high on crystal, drinking scotch and smoking weed
Daddy's wish used to be nothing less than my command
Took a switch to my back, nailed me to a cross, both hands

Mamma couldn't give me, the thing a young boy needs
Instead of Mamma suffering, she was smart enough to leave
Spend my life fighting, trying to stay free
From trials and tribulations and the state penitentiary

Hustled pool, really looking cool
Just making both ends meet
Until that day I saw you walking
Down Blue Angel street
The sweetest lies are lily white
Coming from your lips
You brush away all my pain
With a lazy finger tip

It moves my heart just watching, the way you walk so smooth
You save me from an evil fate, you steal away my blues
Lyin' here in your arms, I don't need more proof
Lyin' here safe and warm, it's just the naked truth
This man loves you, this man loves you
This man loves you, this man loves you
That's the naked truth
It's the naked truth

Going down that graveyard spiral, there was nothing I could do
Life treatin' me much harder, than a mean old corkscrew
Lyin' here in your arms, I don't need more proof
Lyin' here safe and warm, it's just the naked truth
This man loves you, this man loves you
This man loves you, this man loves you...
This song is from the album "The Naked Truth".
