Andy Allen – Shaky Hands lyrics

Ain’t nobody need to tell me
'cause I know that it’s all about me
It took a firetruck hose to kill
All the burning inside me now

So get you set up
Cozy for a lonely winter
And get yourself straight with heaven
There’s no pretty smile you can see

He gets you with his long black hair
When you’re coming to it
It’s a crazy world and you never knew it
He ties you down and he locks you in

I wish this was the first time I would do this
Leave the girl that never knew it
You made me smile in the time that you knew me

So lay me down and tuck me in and
Tell me your loving me was just beginning
You hold my world in the palm of your weak shaky hands
Your shaking hands

—Organ playing—
—Rhythm begins—

Ain’t nobody need to tell me
Cause I see the dream surrounding me
And nobody’s gonna know
Not I can see the lightening break

So stay for awhile
Stay until your lonely due date
You see the manager smile
And send a big smile your way

He gets you with his long black hair
When you’re coming to it
It’s a windy world and you never knew it
He ties you down and he locks you in

I wish this was the first time I would do this
Leave the girl that never knew it
You made me smile in the time that you knew me

So lay me down and tuck me in and
Tell me your loving me is just beginning
You hold my world in the palm of your weak shaky hands
Your shaking hands

He gets you with his long black hair
When you’re coming to it
It’s a hard knock world and you never knew it
He ties you down and he locks you in

I wish this was the first time I would do this
Leave the girl that never knew it
You made me smile in the time that you knew me

So lay me down and tuck me in and
Tell me your loving me is just beginning
You hold my world in the palm of your weak shaky hands
Your shaking hands

—piano/guitar play on—
