"Honey" as written by and Leroy/beck Bonner....
Memories haunting my evenings
Eyes watching me through the moon
I hope my good days aren't over
Not so soon
I never have seen an angel
I gave up watching the sky
Whisper softly to me, honey
But don't lie

I still see you when my eyes are closed
Tell me why
Can't let go
I still smell you inside of my clothes
Oh, honey

Someday I'll go for the glory
I'll conquer everyone's fears
And for once the ending of the story
Won't be tears
I have seen too much betrayal
I have heard too many lies
Someday I'll be purple lightning in the sky

I still see you when my eyes are closed
Tell me why
Can't let go
I still smell you inside of my clothes
Oh, honey
I can't love anybody but you
Oh, honey

I was alone, I was broken
I needed someone to love
Your love was sticky like honey
Your love was sticky like honey
I said your love was sticky like honey
I got stuck

I still see you when my eyes are closed
Tell me why
Can't let go
I still smell you inside of my clothes
Oh, honey
I can't love anybody but you
I'm afraid
Yeah, but I know it's true
I can't find no one sweeter than you
Oh, honey

See you, feel you, touch you
Can't let go of you
Honey

    General CommentI think this is an awesome song that talks about being in love. Before you meet this person, you feel "alone" and "broken" because the last guy had really hurt you. You have these memories that are "haunting" you about who has hurt you before. But then you're drawn to someone else who loves you and helps you heal. You get "stuck" to them like they're honey. You're afraid at first: "but don't lie, don't you lie," but soon find that they won't hurt you. And isn't it true that when you love someone, you see them every time you close your eyes? And whenever you've been together and then part, you'll still smell him?

    General CommentThese lyrics are a completely different song and artist??

    Memories haunting my evenings, eyes watching me through the moon
    I hope my good days aren't over, not so soon

    I never have seen an angel, I gave up watching the skies
    whisper softly to me honey, but don't lie
    Don't you lie

    I still see you when my eyes are closed
    tell me I can't get go
    I still smell you inside of my clothes
    oh honey

    Someday I'll go for the glory, I'll conquer everyone's fears
    and for once the ending of the story, won't be tears

    I have seen too much betrayal, I have heard too many lies
    Someday I'll be purple lightening in the skies,

    I still see you when my eyes are closed,
    tell me why I can't let go
    I still smell you inside of my clothes,
    oh honey
    I can't love anybody but you,
    oh honey

    I was alone, I was broken
    I needed someone to love
    your love was sticky like honey
    I got stuck

    I still see you when my eyes are closed
    Tell me why, can't let go
    I still smell you inside of my clothes,
    Oh honey
    I can't love anybody but you,
    I'm afraid but I know it's true
    I can't find no one sweeter than you
    Oh honey
