about

Spreading the pain around.

lyrics

Winter comes in easy
Snowflakes a' dancin' through the oak trees
Where we walked so slowly
On the edge of town

You said you still loved me
With your head upon my shoulder
No when I say those words
They sound like see you 'round

Now ain't you something woman?
Goin' out and comin' in
Taking everything
That you could from me

All those trees upon the hillside
All shadowed in the sunrise
Their roots tied tight
And showing through the ground

Well I could not stand their standing
And in an act of stout remanning
I vowed then and there
That they were coming down

I traded my axe for the grinding
For gas powered styling
Now that's my latest darling
With the bar and chain

Now that's my heart
That's my chainsaw heart
Tearing through them trees
Oh love... love... love
Chop it down

Now what's with these women
A' goin' out and comin' in
Giving back the things
That you took from me

Come on with it, ladies
All you Jezebels and you
Heartless Sexy Sadies
I got me a lock that don't fit your key

I pull back the blinds
To see your coal black eyes
Begging
Please don't go away

I take my hat from the door
And I bow down to the floor
Maybe I'll be back on Saturday
Maybe not

Cuz that's my heart
That's my chainsaw heart
Tearing through them trees
Oh love... love... love...
Chop it down

Now I got a recommendation
For all the lovers in this great nation
Who've taken one too many rides
And been tossed out

Adjust your atttitude
Change your coat and shine your shoes
And when you hit bottom
Just make sure that you bounce

Yes, that's my heart
That's my chainsaw heart
Tearing through them trees
Oh love... love... love
Chop it down
