Patty Griffin Buck Naked Heart Lyrics

Last updated:

It must seem like a million miles away
But that don't mean it is
I sat and I thought, and I thought, of the things I could say
And I just came up with this

'Cause honesty is hard to handle
Truth is harder than hell
Is it love or flies to a candle
As years go by it's hard to tell
As years go by it's hard to tell

You're actin' like it's nothing, baby
But I don't think I can play that part
When you have looked straight in the eyes
Of my buck naked heart

We were sometimes light so bright it hurt your eyes
And everything, to the touch, feels burned and raw
But folding back into the arms of a lie
Can never change, no never change, those things we saw

I can hardly stand to see you
You're so careful what you say
Do you think you're the only one
Who ever gave something away

You're actin' like it's nothing, baby
But I don't think I can play that part
When you have looked straight in the eyes
Of my buck naked heart

'Cause honesty is hard to handle
Truth is harder than hell
Is it love or flies to a candle
As years go by it's hard to tell
As years go by it's hard to tell
Years go by, hard to tell, hard to tell

You're actin' like it's nothing, baby
But I don't think I can play that part
When you have looked straight in the eyes
Of my buck naked heart
