8/25/2000 alternate lyrics

so give love
preacher miss your name
while loving me this speed i walk
won't ya get to the loving
made no major to me your
won't you give it to lighten
like sucking on a dry stick for love
where there's none there to have

there's nothing there to have

walls and reason walk away
won't you give it to lighten
how about a reason
bathed i walk away
rain on baby to read
you're covered in his grace
trying to sell it for a good buck of love
well you're stupid and insane

bought then tossed away
girl what you got no prison in your head
oh no better than this
deal all the best you miss

rain all rain here
for the lonely round
i said i have the numbers and
i've got you over the top of things
oh no leave you
all of your hands around high head
fall away as you
as you know you're blushing
oh what do you see through

walled and fall line out
suckle it down your hair
red room bigs and busy boys gone wrong
no mama he is a mess
crave he layed all to rope your
won't you go there now
i mean to be tied up with you
well that's the hell i have

the hell i have

oh read the lonely
jesus is a go
blind and read it
moldy like a ghost
oh i lay this for me
oh won't give it a light
man loves all love songs
and then fools God has got to go

bought then tossed away
refuse to let the girl find her own way
bought then tossed away
no forgiveness for the vain

oh i lay here
no place under the sun
oh a better place to take you
oh man i lead you down, down
and all i had to wonder
was all i had to display, display, display
come on leave here
oh all i have is all my love that i give to you

lady lovey
oh would you give your life
wanna laid of honey
won't ya give a sound
rain man bought us read now
won't ya give him a life
tied tucked with a big stick and hung now
never give your thoughts

bought then tossed away
girls are better than nothing doing
bought then tossed away
girl forgiveness not for vain

run away here
i'll have you back
i have you back now lay here
run a long way
oh run away love stay here
oh i leave go
down, down till around, round
all that not forsaken
but still you're quite a girl i'm sure
there's nothing there for you

bought then tossed away
yeah i said you
main lyrics
[Busted Stuff version]

What you got what you got in your hand? a father said to son
I got the whole world here Daddy between my fingers and my thumb
Well you take care of it please—it's the only one
Well it would take me a lifetime old man to undo what you've done
Oh come on now boy thing—what would Jesus do?
He shake his head like an angry mother
Smoke the boy and say I did what I could do
But you take care of it please
It's the only one you got
And it'd take ten lifetimes boy to undo what I've done
Boy shrugged walked away
The man stood and watched as he was leaving
Boy just walked away
The man stood alone thinking
One hand is bleeding and the other hand holds a gun
While everything is open everything is shut down, down, down
Begin to ending is really
Just a go round and round and round
As I stand here—the ground beneath is nothing more than one point of view
What you got what you got in your hand?
Your secret's safe with me
Well I found the truth friend
Let me whisper in your ear
Take good care of it please
It's the only one there is
Can I twist it please can I give it just a little twist
One hand is open and the other hand holds the gun
Everything is open
Now is everything coming down, down, down
No one is hoping, even if you know
You never know it all
Nothing more than my point of view
Boy shrugged walked away
The man stood and watched as he was leaving
The man stood there twisting

[2000 Studio Session version]

Rise and graze on this
the future is a mess
oh, will you take this thing
from us we give it in
no longer yet, oh oh no
won't you got your thing
I cheer then hesitate from
one other thing

One other thing
count out the radiant life
won't you give in now
out of the reasons
let a light is rushed

Stone and gate is lay
won't you got your lips
live up to your dreams and give
wondering you're over there

Dark then tossed away
breach all yourself
on love is a gaze
gone then tossed away
read the best you can and in

Oh I'll lay here
don't give up till you're down, down, down
they don't kneel
heaven's all underground
can we leave all
the lord knows it's all dark
rain is it you see this
I have to say it's nothing more than
my point of view

This pride reigns for a girl
she slides across the floor
looks good as an angel
how much I want some more

She's all needed to me
best thing I can come
what's all been played with me
the sweetest one of all
yeah the sweetest one of all

Come on raven give it up
won't you get it the light up
knowledge waiting
here like a dead log
when I say this I mean all
won't you go with your head
live life till you don't need any
but don't give up a bit

Fall then tossed away
oh, don't you give up
just a little stray
gone, then tossed away
read, God is on the page

Pray on word
have you say you get down, down, down
oh, we leave here
we need more love round, and round, and round
oh won't let it go on, oh man cower down be down
here no worry, to rest they say nothing more than I wouldn't do

Can't leave us alone to die, no
would you give your love
light up a way aha
if you like to live it down on it
won't let you down here
would you get you're locked up
we have to raise it up, to spread around the place

God got locked away
no, don't place any time
we walk away
then rise up your wings
read way out of the watch

Growing lady
oh the one gone round, and round, and round
lay down near you
but who be down no no down there
pray that we don't, we don't, we don't
who would leave this
I have to say it's nothing more than
my point of view
