"Wish I'd Been Honest" as written by and Dowd....
I wished I'd been honest
Considerate and kind
Wished i hadn't been
So willfully blind
Locked in a prison
Without any bars
Another victim
Of the sexual wars

Wished I'd been brave
Like the explorers of old
I'd have gone to Antarctica
No matter how cold
I'd have gone to the Amazon
At the drop of a hat
I wish I'd been a brave man like that

Wished I could change
But I'm too disorganized
Too riddled with guilt
Self-pity and lies
Wished I could have
A second chance
One more shot
At true romance

Wished I could say
Why I did what I did
Why I ran when I ran
Why I hid when I hid
Wish I knew
What I was so frightened of
Was it my daddy's anger
Or my mamma's sweet love

Wish I could eat
Just beans and rice
Everyday I'd eat
The same meal twice
I guess that says somethin'
Bout my psychology
Maybe that's why
My first wife left me
