lyrics

If I lay it all on the line for you, honey
What do I get in return?
I need to know, before I go
And give up all I've learned
Decomposition, superstition
Just tell me in which you believe
If I lay it all on the line for you, honey
Tell me what it is I receive

If I lay it all on the line for you, honey
When will I be able to sleep?
When will I be forced to jump off this horse
And cease my midnight creep?
It's too late for supper, but in another
Few hours, I'll still be counting sheep
If I lay it all on the line for you, honey
When will I be able to sleep?

If I lay it all on the line for you, honey
When will my sun come to rise?
I try to talk to you about your condition
But all I get are alibis
You got me in chains, but yet I refrain
From steppin' into view of your eyes
If I lay it all on the line for you, honey
Which of us will you despise?

I been runnin' so long,
And the frequency's on the wire
I been runnin' away from this yard
Like a trapeze on fire

If I lay it all on the line for you, honey
When can I take you home?
I'll surrender to you, no more a pretender
I'll steal away your moan
In the bars and rhymes
Just read between the lines
If I lay it all on the line for you, honey
Will it be worth my time?

If I lay it all on the line for you, honey
Who shall decide my fate?
I'll hold onto you, as well as I do
Until I make my ultimate escape
But I'll see you in the ether at the altar of the preacher
Forlorn and at misery's gate
If I lay it all on the line for you, honey
What's the guarantee I won't have to make?
What's the guarantee I won't have to make?
What's the guarantee I won't have to make?
