I was wrong to let you slip through my fingers
I should have known this longing for you would linger on
long after my pride had died, and my fury burned down to an ember
And now I'm left with nothing but an aching wish
for your hands upon my tender skin, your lips against my mouth
So though I know it must be way too late to ask
honey won't you come lie with me again?
Well it must be the heat that's gone to my head
I keep dreaming you're right here beside me in bed
I keep feeling your weight on my back
and then I turn to find it's nothing but a lack
Oh believe me, I never thought I'd feel this way
I'm all stripped down and my heart is slain
and my head is on fire with love
It's not right, it's just plain desire
Come on now, honey, this won't hurt a bit
won't you come on and lie with me again?
I'm not asking for forgiveness, I'm not making any promises
I know we can't forget what we've been through
I know there's no such thing as starting anew
but there is something we two can do
Oh my worn and ragged country boy
with your broken heart and your side-ways mind
and a sadness so deep in your eyes,
I want nothing more than to love it away
Well you look like you could use some peace and rest
just to close those pretty eyes and lay you down
It's cool here and the bed is all laid out
So if you've got nothing better to do,
honey won't you come lie with me again?
