Twist of Barbwire

Jonathan JacksonBuy this song

Said I love you 'til you don't know you're born
Said I'd love you 'til the far side of dawn
But in the morning if you must leave
Don't leave with your apologies
If you come back
If I liked you at all
Remember I liked you to fall on your knees

Liar liar you're my last desire
Thought your kind of love was just a thorn of the rose
Tried hard to be faithful
Not hard enough I suppose
Tried hard to drown with a hum and a drum
In a pretty drug slum mire tried bearing your sighs
And your sneers and your frown
Tried wearing your jewels and your heels and your crown
But it was nothing but a twist of barbwire
It was nothing but a twist of barbwire
It was nothing but a twist of barbwire

See I promise I'll be constantly clean
Did you think that I still say what I mean
Now you're keening and you have to decide
Will you open your legs or your eyes
Oh do you pray now 'cause I pray all the time
As the soul can't escape what the heart may disguise

Liar liar you're my last desire
Thought your kind of love was just a thorn of the rose
Tried hard to be faithful
Not hard enough I suppose
Tried hard to drown with a hum and a drum
In a pretty drug slum mire tried bearing your sighs
And your sneers and your frown
Tried wearing your jewels and your heels and your crown
But it was nothing but a twist of barbwire
It was nothing but a twist of barbwire
It was nothing but a twist of barbwire
