I'm A Mess For You

I’m A Mess For You – Tim O’Brien / No Bad Ham Music / ASCAP

Fox in back yard rears her pups, roses bloom and buttercups
Roof is leaking I don't care, love is here it's everywhere
In my shoes and in my pants, in my voice and crooked stance
In my ears and on my mind, on this page it burns and shines

I'm a mess for you, I’m a mess for you
I’m a big ol’ messy mess for you

Jan Renee, Trudy true, I guess I’m not through with you
Reach your arms out, touch my hand, rock me in this weary land
Pull the stopper from the jug, fill me, kiss me, give me hug
Keep me from the foggy dew, Jan Renee Trudy true

I'm a mess for you, I’m a mess for you
I’m a big ol’ messy mess for you

I kept my love all bottled up, I was afraid I’d use it up
Afraid my heart might soon run dry, someone might just hear me cry
Thought there wasn’t love to share, didn’t know love was everywhere
There's a big old bottle on the shelf, go ahead and pour some for yourself

I'm a mess for you, I’m a mess for you
I’m a big ol’ messy mess for you

As death resides behind his mask, so does love lie just in back
Of all the rushing dots and dashes that hide the truth where it still flashes
And love and truth and permanence they're solid ground they owe no rents
Even if we cannot see, love is with us always free

I'm a mess for you, I’m a mess for you, I'm a mess for you
I’m a mess for you, I’m a mess for you
I’m a big ol’ messy mess for you
