I Know You

Life, how you feel about life
means something to me, if not nothing
Eyes in the back of your head 
You want eyes so you can see me coming
Time in line,
you want to hold out,
hold on to what you've got inside
in spite of your promise to love like a brother,
give something back
Make it bad
good
	best
nothing left
	right
wrong
	better
fight on
	strong
weak
	sharp turn
the other cheek
	kiss
tell
	time
flies by
	bye baby
by God
	send
take nice
	means yes

I know you,
How you wrestle with words
sounds funny to me
but you keep talking
Lies on the tip of your tongue
You tell lies
But then, you're only joking
Words in line,
you try to red dog, whitewash the underside of night
in spite of your promise to bleed like a poet,
burn for the sin

Cut me in
	out
through
	nothing new
old
	glory
guilty
	mind games
hide
	seek
wrong turn
	the other cheek
slap
	skin
soft
	hard cover
book
	burned out
shack
	low
high rise
	still alive

How do I know anything about me?
I know you
How do I know you'll always be beside me?
I know you
Maybe you hang tough,
taking just enough rope
I know you,
How do I know about true love and false hope?
I know you

Love, how you shelter your love feels empty to me
and lonely
Free, for the loss of a friend you want freedom,
some kind of means to an end
Love in line
You want to hold out,
hold on to what you've got inside
in spite of your promise to love like a brother
down to the soul

How do I know anything about me?
I know you
How do I know you'll always be inside me?
I know you
Maybe you hang tough,
give me just enough rope
I know you,
How do I know about true love and false hope?
I know you
